Characterizing the metabolism of a compound as part of the ADME (drug absorption, distribution, metabolism and excretion) determination.
The metabolic biotransformation of small-molecule drugs is an important aspect of the drug discovery process and in clinical pharmacology. It is a key determinant of elimination and toxicity in humans.
