What is famciclovir s bioavailability?



Famciclovir is an antiviral medication that is used to treat infections caused by herpes viruses, including genital herpes, cold sores, and shingles. The bioavailability of famciclovir is the proportion of the drug that enters the systemic circulation after administration.

According to DrugPatentWatch [1], the bioavailability of famciclovir is approximately 77% after oral administration. This means that about 77% of the drug is absorbed into the bloodstream and available for use by the body.

A study published in the Journal of Clinical Pharmacology [2] evaluated the pharmacokinetics of famciclovir in healthy volunteers. The study found that the bioavailability of famciclovir was 77.5% after oral administration of a single 500 mg dose.

DrugBank [3] also confirms that the bioavailability of famciclovir is approximately 77% after oral administration.

In conclusion, the bioavailability of famciclovir is approximately 77% after oral administration. This means that about 77% of the drug is absorbed into the bloodstream and available for use by the body.
