Editorial Reviews


"This book is helpful in understanding and designingpharmacokinetic studies, illustrating basic concepts and noting thespecies differences. . . The book does a good job of explaining aconcept and then expands with more specific examples. It provides agood base for pharmacokinetic modeling and illustrates the pitfallswith interspecies extrapolation." (Doody's, 21 October 2011)
