PHC 531LR Introduction to Pharmacokinetics and Pharmacodynamics 1


This course introduces and evaluates factors influencing the absorption, distribution, and elimination of drugs in humans and presents a mathematical framework for characterizing the time-course of drug concentrations in the body (i.e., pharmacokinetics or PK). In addition, basic pharmacodynamic (PD) concepts are reviewed, which define the relationships between drug concentrations and pharmacological and adverse effects. Integrated together, the PK-PD paradigm describes the components that determine the intensity and duration of drug effects, and mathematical PK-PD models can be ultimately used to optimize the initiation and individualization of drug therapy in a quantitative manner.
