Having addressed potency issues in 1972, John Topliss’s contribution to understanding bioavailability is also a classic. Bioavailability is a highly complex property covering absorption, metabolism, protein binding and excretion, nevertheless Topliss showed how a rational approach could be applied to attempt to predict classes of bioavailability. An area of considerable continuing interest.
