Clinical Pharmacokinetics (2 hrs Lecture+2 hrs Tutorial)

  • College of Pharmacy |


The course deals with clinical pharmacokinetics and its applications. Topics include pharmacokinetics, drug distribution and drug clearance mechanisms, IV infusion kinetics and kinetics following extra-vascular dosing, metabolite kinetics, multiple dose kinetics, non-linear pharmacokinetics, dosage regimen design, dosage individualization of drugs of narrow therapeutic index especially in patients with compromised renal and hepatic function.
