Reviewer: Keith A. Rodvold, PharmD (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Pharmacy)
Description: This book contains excellent discussions on current pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic topics and regulatory issues that affect drug discovery and development.
Purpose: The purpose is to present the latest concepts and developments in the area of pharmacokinetics from the perspective of authorities in the regulatory, industrial, and academic environments. This second edition of the textbook has new topics and current issues that have rapidly evolved since the first edition in 1988.
Audience: The intended audience includes industrial, regulatory, and research scientists interested in the areas of pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics, and biopharmaceutics. The book will is also be useful to pharmacologists, pharmacists, and graduate students.
Features: The book is well organized and arranged with a logical separation of chapters. The tables and black-and-white figures are well presented. All chapters have thorough and up-to-date references. The book is enhanced by an excellent index. The editors and authors are recognized experts actively involved in pharmacokinetic research. This book represents volume 67 of the excellent series, Drugs and the Pharmaceutical Sciences.
Assessment: The book contains wonderful discussions on good laboratory practice regulations; issues of drug, peptide, and protein drug delivery; membrane and blood-brain barrier transport; and methodologies for assessing drug metabolism. Detailed descriptions are given on the clinical and nonclinical aspects of pharmacokinetics in drug discovery and development. Extensive overviews are included on pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic modeling relationships and population data analysis. The statistical and regulatory perspectives of bioavailability and bioequivalence are presented. The book will serve as an excellent reference to scientists and graduate students who are interested in pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics, and biopharmaceutics.

American Journal of Pharmaceutical Education
...The blending of opinions and perspectives of contributors from regulatory, industrial, and academic settings is a very unique and worthwhile feature of this volume...highly recommend[ed].
Journal of Pharmaceutical Sciences
Praise for the First Edition... ...well written, well organized, and presents a balanced presentation of the topic... ...should be required reading for those persons in the pharmaceutical industry and academia as well as others who are interested in pharmacokinetics and drug metabolism and have a need to stay abreast of this burgeoning field...an excellent reference.

A reference that details the rapidly changing role that clinical and nonclinical pharamcokinetics and drug metabolism play in the discovery and development of drug therapies, emphasizing often overlooked regulatory, scientific, and economic issues. This edition (first was 1988) is revised and updated to keep abreast of changes in the field. Although a strong component of classical pharmacokinetics and metabolism is retained, there is greater emphasis on topics that are rapidly changing within the dynamic framework of the application of pharmacokinetic principles.
