The first pass effect (also known as first-pass metabolism or presystemic metabolism) is a phenomenon of drug metabolism whereby the concentration of a drug is greatly reduced before it reaches the systemic circulation. It is the fraction of drug lost during the process of absorption which is generally related to the liver and gut wall.
Can someone provide a simple explanation for the 1st pass effect? its a phenonmenon of the drug as the changing of its conc. in the path undirectly of the systemic circulation Systemics
Second-pass metabolism is where the drug comes back to the liver from the circulation. ... If Congestive Heart Failure leads to a decrease in hepatic blood flow and a reduction in the first-pass effect, oral drugs should. be decreased in dose In order to NOT to lead to toxic levels.
A first-pass effect is defined as a low systemic availability of the drug as a result of significant metabolism. Although a first-pass effect can occur in a variety of tissues, including the intestines Doherty and Pang (1997) and uterus De Ziegler et al (1997), it is most often observed with the liver.

First-pass elimination takes place when a drug is metabolised between its site of administration and the site of sampling for measurement of drug concentration. Clinically, first-pass metabolism is important when the fraction of the dose administered that escapes metabolism is small and variable ...
first-pass effect: the intestinal and hepatic degradation or alteration of a drug or substance taken by mouth, after absorption, removing some of the active substance from the blood before it enters the general circulation. Synonym(s): first-pass effect
After oral administration, many drugs (morphine, pentazocine) are absorbed intact from the small intestine and trasported first via the portal system to the liver, where they undergo extensive metabolism. This process is called the first-pass effect. Although every tissue has some ability to metabolize drugs, the liver is the principal organ of drug metabolism.
