An investigation of drug transport in the lumen as well as in the tissue, in the presence of absorbing interface is studied. The streaming blood is considered as a power-law fluid, whereas, the transport of luminal and tissue drug as a convection-diffusion process. Predicted results show the length of flow separation increases with increasing Re. Simulation predicts the diminishing tissue content with increasing wall absorption parameter. The luminal concentration reaches its quasi steady-state more rapidly than that in the tissue.
