about

This book presents a novel modeling approach to biopharamceutics, pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamic phenomena. It shows how advanced physical and mathematical methods can expand classical models in order to cover heterogeneous drug-biological processes and therapeutic effects in the body. Throughout, many examples are used to illustrate the intrinsic complexity of drug administration related phenomena in the human, justifying the use of advanced modeling methods.

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"This book presents a novel modelling approach to biopharamceutics, pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamic phenomena. . This state-of-the-art volume will be helpful to students and researchers in pharmacology, bioengineering, and physiology. This book is a must for pharmaceutical researchers to keep up with recent developments in this field." (P. R. Parthasarathy, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1103 (5), 2007)
