Course Outline

We present the theory and applications of  pharmacodynamics. With diverse pharmacokinetic-pharmacodynamic modeling concepts it is possible to describe and predict the time course of drug effects under various physiological and pathological conditions. The study of PK/PD and Disease Progression relationships can be of considerable value in understanding drug action, summarizing extensive data, building a knowledge repository, finding optimal dosing regimens, and in making predictions under new circumstances.  More advanced PK/PD models have evolved into Systems Pharmacology.
