Another important PK parameter in relation to drug elimination from the body is the time it takes for the serum concentration of a drug to decrease by 50 %, otherwise known as the drug half-life (t1/2). , steady state is where the rate of drug administration equals the rate of drug elimination. For drugs that follow linear or first-order PK (proportional), it takes ~5 drug half lives to reach this state of equilibrium, steady state. Furthermore, the t1/2 can be helpful in determining when to restart drug dosing or initiate new drug therapy after temporary discontinuation of a medication regimen.

The revised legislation also required that, in developing these priorities, the Secretary shall consider (1) therapeutic gaps in pediatrics that may include developmental pharmacology, pharmacogenetic determinants of drug response, metabolism of drugs and biologics in children, and pediatric clinical trials; (2) particular pediatric diseases, disorders, or conditions where more complex knowledge and testing of therapeutics, including drugs and biologics, may be beneficial in pediatric populations; and (3) the adequacy of necessary infrastructure to conduct pediatric pharmacological research, including research networks and trained pediatric investigators.
