Reviews of the First Edition:

“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 that may fill a small niche in a well–served market. “  (British Toxicology Society Newsletter, 1 June 2012)

"In summary, I believe that this book is successful in what it sets out to do. For those readers who are interested in getting to grips with the basics of the time course of onset, offset and extent of drug effects then this is the book for you. I am certainly recommending this book for my graduate students." (British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology, 2011)

Scientists working in pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics (PK and PD) study the behavior of drugs in the body. This includes how drugs are absorbed into the body, where they go, what they do, and how the body gets rid of them. Models can be applied to help understand these processes. The combined subject of PK/PD is an important component of the education of health professionals and research scientists involved with drugs.

Updated with new chapters and topics, the new edition of Basic Pharmacokinetics and Pharmacodynamics; presents the essentials of PK / PD in a clear and coordinated manner. Maintaining its clear and straightforward presentation, the text enables you to understand the dose–response relationship and dosing regimen design.

Your understanding of the material will be enhanced by guided computer exercises available on a companion website, which makes the book ideal for self–study. Simulations will allow you to visualize drug behaviour, experiment with different dosing regimens, and observe the influence of patient characteristics and model parameters.

The second edition updates and strengthens existing chapters and adds new topics to address newer applications of pharmacokinetics in clinical practice and drug development, including physiologically based pharmacokinetic modeling and the prediction of drug–drug interactions.

Because Basic Pharmacokinetics and Pharmacodynamics, 2nd Edition is an introductory textbook, the material is presented as simply as possible. As a result, you'll find it easy to gain an understanding of all the core principles, apply them to understand drug dosages, drug–drug interactions, and to evaluate the literature on clinical pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics.
