If all other factors remain equal, the higher the tissue perfusion, the higher is the amount of drug to be diffused. In comparing thiopental and penicillin, it is found that thiopental enters the brain more rapidly than muscle; the reverse is the case for penicillin. Thiopental is a lipophilic substance that diffuses easily into both muscle and brain. Because the perfusion of brain is higher than that of muscle, thiopental diffuses more rapidly into the brain. Penicillin is a polar substance that does not enter the brain at all.

For example, phenytoin becomes metabolized to hydroxyphenytoin. When given in higher than recommended individual doses, hydroxyphenytoin inhibits the hydroxylase system that metabolizes phenytoin, increasing its concentration in free form and its potential to produce toxicity.

A drug that is absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract, excreted in the bile, and resorbed from the intestine is said to have undergone enterohepatic cycling.

For example, phenylbutazone undergoes aromatic hydroxylation to produce a metabolite that has sodium-retaining and antirheumatic activities, and also undergoes alkyl chain oxidation to produce a metabolite with a strong uricosuric property. Thus phenylbutazone has both uricosuric and antirheumatic effects.
