Improving Confidence in the Determination of Free Fraction for Highly Bound Drugs Using Bi-directional Equilibrium Dialysis.

Equilibrium dialysis (ED) has been widely used for the measurement of the fraction of unbound drug (f) in plasma, but it suffers from the accuracy and reliability for low f values. To address this con...
