Basic Pharmacokinetics 2nd Ed

cover-basic-pharmacokinetics-2nd-edBook Reviews: PHARMACOKINETICS AND BIOPHARMACEUTICS courses have been included in pharmacy curricula across the USA and in many other countries for the past several years. At present, there are a number of textbooks available for use by students and other readers. Most of these textbooks, although valuable and well written, concentrate on presenting the material in substantial mathematical depth, with much less emphasis needed on explanations that will facilitate understanding and the ability to use the pharmacokinetic equations which are introduced. Furthermore, also evident in currently available textbooks is a paucity of adequate explanation regarding factors influencing pharmacokinetic parameters present in these equations. The intent of this textbook is to provide the reader with a basic intuitive understanding of the principles of pharmacokinetics and

Furthermore, also evident in currently available textbooks is a paucity of adequate explanation regarding factors influencing pharmacokinetic parameters present in these equations. The intent of this textbook is to provide the reader with a basic intuitive understanding of the principles of pharmacokinetics and biopharmaceutics and how these principles, along with the equations presented in each chapter, can be applied to achieve successful drug therapy. It has been our intent to illustrate the application of pharmacokinetic principles and equations by providing the reader with data available in the literature. Additionally, when relevant, problem sets and problem-solving exercises, complete with keys, have been provided at the conclusion of each chapter. This approach will enable the reader to become adept at solving pharmacokinetic problems arising in drug therapy and to understand the applications and utility of equations in clinical practice.

Organization:

As listed in the table of contents, the book is organized into 19 chapters, the last one appearing as an Appendix. The first chapter consists of an introduction to the principles necessary to understand pharmacokinetics as well as an overview of the subject matter. The remaining chapters are organized in an order that should be easy for the reader to follow, while still demonstrating the salient features of each topic. Clearance and other essential fundamental pharmacokinetic parameters have been introduced early in the book, since the student will need to apply these concepts in subsequent chapters. This has necessitated cross-referencing concepts introduced in the first few chapters throughout the remainder of the book.
