This volume is a handbook primarily designed for scientists and technicians without formal pharmacokinetics/pharmacodynamics (PK/PD) training, who work in an industrial setting. The book is a primary desktop reference and contains easy-to-understand guidance for PK/PD issues, study design, and data interpretation. PK/PD are integral aspects for investigating the disposition and pharmacological efficacy of drugs under various experimental and clinical conditions

Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Kwon's guide to the industrial applications of pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics, and drug metabolism is intended primarily for industrial scientists, lab assistants, and managers in the discovery and development groups of pharmaceutical companies. Thirteen chapters deal with specific PK/PD/DM issues; the work also covers recent topics on higher-throughput in-vivo exposure screening and the prediction of pharmacokinetics in humans.
