A drug's half-life is the amount of time for the concentration of drug in the body to be reduced by half.

A drug's plasma half-life is the amount of time required for the drug to be eliminated from the plasma.

The connection between the two is considering the amount of drug concentration to plasma ratio, which can vary.
