Pharmacokinetic-Pharmacodynamic Modeling



This Lecture Series comprises the theoretical basics and applications of integrated pharmacokinetic-pharmacodynamic modelling.

The following subjects will be covered: General Introduction; Analysis of Concentration-Response Relations; Basics of Receptor Theory; Modelling of the course of direct and indirect Pharmacological effects in vivo; Pharmacodynamic interactions; Functional adaptation and tolerance; Technical aspects of integrated pharmacokinetic-pharmacodynamic data analysis; Literature studies and presentations of recent publications.
