HALF-LIFE Of Oclacitinib

Apoquel’s half-life in a dog’s body is between 3.1 to 5.2 hours. A drug completely eliminates from a living body in four (minimum) to six (maximum) half-lives.

That’s means if a dog has taken 5.4 milligrams of oclacitinib, after 3 to 5 hours (first half-life interval) the amount of oclacitinib in the dog’s body will be reduced to 2.7 milligrams.

After the second half-life (i.e. 3 to 5 hours) of medicine, it reduces to 1.35 milligrams, (after 3-5 hours) (after 3-5 hours) 0.675, (after 3-5 hours) 0.3375, 0.1688, and so on.

After 4 to 6 half-life intervals, it’s admitted by health professionals that more than 95% of the active drug is eliminated through the body.
