English term or phrase: systemically
The drug is not absorbed systemically
Malin Brooks
Swedish translation:i systemet
Explanation:
I will not try to write Swedish, because I'm not so sure of the result, so I'm writing this in Norwegian! The idea is not "systematically" as Mats proposes, but "by / in the system", i.e. the drug is not absorbed by the organism, in the sense of the whole human body.
Systemic (which by the way is a Greek word) = affecting the whole body as distinct from having a local effect: e.g. a systemic infection
You can find this explanation in Encarta.

I'm sure you know how to put this in good Swedish!
