Parameter model for the mean absorption time (MAT)
Parameter model for the mean delay time (MDT)
PK components can be added to a pk_model and exist in three different types: absorption, distribution, and elimination. The absorption component is optional, distribution and elimination are not and need to be added for the PK model to be valid.
A PK model can only have one component of each type and adding a component with an already existing type will replace the previous definition. For example, the distribution component will be a two compartment model in the following snippet:
1 2 3 4 5 6 7
All PK component functions allow the specification of the parameter
model via their arguments. Arguments that refer to a parameter start
with the prefix
prm_. The default parameter model can be deduced from
the default arguments in the usage section of the help entry. The
parameter name, specified via the
name= argument of the parameter
model building block allows the renaming of the model parameters.
For example, the parameter
prm_vc= refers to the central volume of
distribution parameter in the one compartment distribution PK component
and the default parameter model is a log-normal distribution. The
following code block specifies a normal distribution parameter model and
names the parameter
