Introduction to Pharmacokinetics for the Non-Specialist
The vast majority of failures at late stage clinical trials and post marketing are due to druginteractions. Pharmacokinetics (PK) and pharmacodynamics (PD) play a key role in drug development, and a good understanding of the implications of PK/PD data is crucial when designing clinical trails or preparing a drug submission dossier. Throughout the pharmaceutical and biotech industries, there is a general lack of understanding of these crucial areas of knowledge. With PK data playing an ever more vital role in the development process, this lack of knowledge needs to be addressed, to increase real communication between depart...
