This is a revised and very expanded version of the previous second edition of the book.

"Pharmacokinetic and Pharmacodynamic Data Analysis" provides an introduction into pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic concepts using simple illustrations and reasoning. It describes ways in which pharmacodynamic and pharmacodynamic theory may be used to give insight into modeling questions and how these questions can in turn lead to new knowledge. This book differentiates itself from other texts in this area in that it bridges the gap between relevant theory and the actual application of the theory to real life situations.

The book is divided into two parts; the first introduces fundamental principles of PK and PD concepts, and principles of mathematical modeling, while the second provides case studies obtained from drug industry and academia. Topics included in the first part include a discussion of the statistical principles of model fitting, including how to assess the adequacy of the fit of a model, as well as strategies for selection of time points to be included in the design of a study. The first part also introduces basic pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic concepts, including an excellent discussion of effect compartment (link) models as well as indirect response models.

The second part of the text includes over 70 modeling case studies. These include a discussion of the selection of the model, derivation of initial parameter estimates and interpretation of the corresponding output. Finally, the authors discuss a number of pharmacodynamic modeling situations including receptor binding models, synergy, and tolerance models (feedback and precursor models).

This book will be of interest to researchers, to graduate students and advanced undergraduate students in the PK/PD area who wish to learn how to analyze biological data and build models and to become familiar with new areas of application. In addition, the text will be of interest to toxicologists interested in learning about determinants of exposure and performing toxicokinetic modeling.

The inclusion of the numerous exercises and models makes it an excellent primary or adjutant text for traditional PK courses taught in pharmacy and medical schools. A diskette is included with the text that includes all of the exercises and solutions using WinNonlin.
