Updated with new chapters and topics, this book provides a comprehensive description of all essential topics in contemporary pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics. It also features interactive computer simulations for students to experiment and observe PK/PD models in action.
Presents the essentials of pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics in a clear and progressive manner
Helps students better appreciate important concepts and gain a greater understanding of the mechanism of action of drugs by reinforcing practical applications in both the book and the computer modules
Features interactive computer simulations, available online through a companion website at: http://www.uri.edu/pharmacy/faculty/rosenbaum/basicmodels.html
Adds new chapters on physiologically based pharmacokinetic models, predicting drug-drug interactions, and pharmacogenetics while also strengthening original chapters to better prepare students for more advanced applications
Reviews of the 1st edition: This is an ideal textbook for those starting out and also for use as a reference book ." (International Society for the Study of Xenobiotics) and I could recommend Rosenbaum s book for pharmacology students because it is written from a perspective of drug action . . . Overall, this is a well-written introduction to PK/PD . (British Toxicology Society Newsletter)
