With its clear, straightforward presentation, this text enables you to grasp all the fundamental concepts of pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics. This will allow you to understand the time course of drug response and dosing regimen design. Clinical models for concentration and response are described and built from the basic concepts presented in earlier chapters. Your understanding of the material will be enhanced by guided computer exercises conducted on a companion website. Simulations will allow you to visualize drug behavior, experiment with different dosing regimens, and observe the influence of patient characteristics and model parameters. This makes the book ideal for self-study. By including clinical models of agonism, indirect drug effects, tolerance, signal transduction, and disease progression, author Sara Rosenbaum has created a work that stands out among introductory-level textbooks in this area.You'll find several features throughout the text to help you better understand and apply key concepts: Three fictitious drugs are used throughout the text to progressively illustrate the development and application of pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic principles Exercises at the end of each chapter reinforce the concepts and provide the opportunity to perform and solve common dosing problems Detailed instructions let you create custom Excel worksheets to perform simple pharmacokinetic analyses Because this is an introductory textbook, the material is presented as simply as possible. As a result, you'll find it easy to gain an accurate, working knowledge of all the core principles, apply them to optimize dosing regimens, and evaluate the clinical pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic literature.

This is a second edition to the original published by Springer in 2006. The comprehensive volume takes a textbook approach systematically developing the field by starting from linear models and then moving up to generalized linear and non-linear mixed effects models. Since the first edition was published the field has grown considerably in terms of maturity and technicality. The second edition of the book therefore considerably expands with the addition of three new chapters relating to Bayesian models, Generalized linear and nonlinear mixed effects models, and Principles of simulation. In addition, many of the other chapters have been expanded and updated.

This is a revised and very expanded version of the previous second edition of the book. "Pharmacokinetic and Pharmacodynamic Data Analysis" provides an introduction into pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic concepts using simple illustrations and reasoning. It describes ways in which pharmacodynamic and pharmacodynamic theory may be used to give insight into modeling questions and how these questions can in turn lead to new knowledge. This book differentiates itself from other texts in this area in that it bridges the gap between relevant theory and the actual application of the theory to real life situations. The book is divided into two parts; the first introduces fundamental principles of PK and PD concepts, and principles of mathematical modeling, while the second provides case studies obtained from drug industry and academia. Topics included in the first part include a discussion of the statistical principles of model fitting, including how to assess the adequacy of the fit of a model, as well as strategies for selection of time points to be included in the design of a study. The first part also introduces basic pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic concepts, including an excellent discussion of effect compartment (link) models as well as indirect response models. The second part of the text includes over 70 modeling case studies. These include a discussion of the selection of the model, derivation of initial parameter estimates and interpretation of the corresponding output. Finally, the authors discuss a number of pharmacodynamic modeling situations including receptor binding models, synergy, and tolerance models (feedback and precursor models). This book will be of interest to researchers, to graduate students and advanced undergraduate students in the PK/PD area who wish to learn how to analyze biological data and build models and to become familiar with new areas of application. In addition, the text will be of interest to toxicologists interested in learning about determinants of exposure and performing toxicokinetic modeling. The inclusion of the numerous exercises and models makes it an excellent primary or adjutant text for traditional PK courses taught in pharmacy and medical schools. A diskette is included with the text that includes all of the exercises and solutions using WinNonlin.

The only book dedicated to physiologically-based pharmacokinetic modeling in pharmaceutical science Physiologically-based pharmacokinetic (PBPK) modeling has become increasingly widespread within the pharmaceutical industry over the last decade, but without one dedicated book that provides the information researchers need to learn these new techniques, its applications are severely limited. Describing the principles, methods, and applications of PBPK modeling as used in pharmaceutics, Physiologically-Based Pharmacokinetic (PBPK) Modeling and Simulations fills this void. Connecting theory with practice, the book explores the incredible potential of PBPK modeling for improving drug discovery and development. Comprised of two parts, the book first provides a detailed and systematic treatment of the principles behind physiological modeling of pharmacokinetic processes, inter-individual variability, and drug interactions for small molecule drugs and biologics. The second part looks in greater detail at the powerful applications of PBPK to drug research. Designed for a wide audience encompassing readers looking for a brief overview of the field as well as those who need more detail, the book includes a range of important learning aids. Featuring end-of-chapter keywords for easy reference—a valuable asset for general or novice readers without a PBPK background—along with an extensive bibliography for those looking for further information, Physiologically- Based Pharmacokinetic (PBPK) Modeling and Simulations is the essential single-volume text on one of the hottest topics in the pharmaceutical sciences today.

All of us are drug users, in the broadest sense of the word. Drugs can be medicines, they can be used for pleasure, and they can also be used to protect our long-term health. It is important that we are well informed about the drugs we use - how they work, their benefits and their risks. This book is a unique guide for the general science reader to the drugs of everyday life - from the main types of medicine through to recreational drugs and food supplements. It looks at how drugs interact with their targets in the body, where they come from, how they are developed and what drugs to expect in the future. All the major pharmaceutical medicines are reviewed - painkillers, antibiotics, anti-cancer drugs, anti depressants, heart drugs, tranquillizers and hormones. However this book is much more than a consumer handbook - it also conveys the fascinating science of drug discovery in an easily accessible way.

In order to understand drug metabolism at its most fundamental level, pharmaceutical scientists must be able to analyze drug compound structures and predict possible metabolic pathways in order to avoid the risk of adverse reactions that lead to the withdrawal of a drug from the market. This comprehensive textbook will aid in guiding students through the recognition of the chemical underpinnings of drug metabolism. While there are numerous resources available for understanding drug structure, and other texts relating to drug metabolism from a biological standpoint, there is no other resource currently available that links both the chemical and biological terminology together in a clear and concise language, written, to be accessible for use in the classroom, as an education tool for teaching drug development. Drug Metabolism: Chemical and Enzymatic Aspects explains, to teachers and students alike, how a drug is metabolized, the potential effects of the metabolites, extensive material to help understand drug metabolism within a biological context, and practical problems and answers.
