A practical guide to the use of pharmacokinetic principles in clinical practice. Over 30 clinical cases with self-study questions and answers are presented throughout to bridge the gap between pharmacokinetic concepts and their practical application to individual patients. Pharmacokinetics is the study of the process of drug absorption, distribution, metabolism and elimination. The aim of applying pharmacokinetic principles is to individualise the dose of drug, and optimise the outcome achieved in each patient. Its application reduces the chance of under-treatment, inadvertent poisoning and dose related adverse effects.

Irish Pharmacy Journal, December 2006, 457 * Irish Pharmacy Journal * 'This book is a very practical and relevant resource for any health professional working with drugs which require the application of pharmacokinetic principles because of their narrow therapeutic range, or with patients whose metabolism of drugs may be altered because of their age, renal or liver function...it would also be valuable for students wanting a current resource covering pharmacokinetic principles and relating them to clinical application.'
