1) Definition of drug stability and drug kineticsStability
It is defined as the study of the extent to which the propertiesof a drug substance or drug product remain within specified limits atcertain temperature. Properties may be physical, chemical,microbiological, toxicological or performance properties such asdisintegration and dissolution
It is defined as how drug changes with time i.e., study of rateof change. Many drugs are not chemically stable and theprinciples of chemical kinetics are used to predict the time span forwhich a drug (pure or formulation) will maintain its therapeuticeffectiveness or efficacy at a specified temperature.
