Basic Pharmacokinetics and Pharmacodynamics: An Integrated Textbook and Computer Simulations

With its clear, straightforward presentation, this text enables youto grasp all the fundamental concepts of pharmacokinetics andpharmacodynamics. This will allow you to understand the time courseof drug response and dosing regimen design. Clinical models forconcentration and response are described and built from the basicconcepts presented in earlier chapters. Your understanding of thematerial will be enhanced by guided computer exercises conducted ona companion website. Simulations will allow you to visualize drugbehavior, experiment with different dosing regimens, and observethe influence of patient characteristics and model parameters. Thismakes the book ideal for self-study. By including clinical models of agonism, indirect drug effects,tolerance, signal transduction, and disease progression, authorSara Rosenbaum has created a work that stands out amongintroductory-level textbooks in this area.You’ll find severalfeatures throughout the text to help you better understand andapply key concepts: * Three fictitious drugs are used throughout the text toprogressively illustrate the development and application ofpharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic principles * Exercises at the end of each chapter reinforce the concepts andprovide the opportunity to perform and solve common dosingproblems * Detailed instructions let you create custom Excel worksheets toperform simple pharmacokinetic analyses Because this is an introductory textbook, the material ispresented as simply as possible. As a result, you’ll find it easyto gain an accurate, working knowledge of all the core principles,apply them to optimize dosing regimens, and evaluate the clinicalpharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic literature.

Introduction to Computer Science: A Textbook for Beginners in Informatics

This textbook is addressed to students of computer science in their first terms, and covers the content of a general introductory lecture in computer science held at a German University. The basic stuff for most special courses – circuit technology, programming, operating system, networking, security, and more – is presented along with some further background information not necessarily covered by other lectures, but helping to understand relationships and reasons why certain techniques are done in just that way. The learning process is supported by numerous exercises. 3rd revision with minor changes and clarifications. A forum is now available on http: //www.gilbertbrands.de/smf/ . Though the primary language of this site is German, feel free to post your comments in English. Dieses Lehrbuch wendet sich an Studenten der Informatik im ersten Semester und deckt den Inhalt einer allgemeinen Einfuhrungsveranstaltung in die Informatik ab. Die grundlegenden Dinge fur die meisten spezielle Kurse – Schaltungstechnik, Programmierung, Betriebssysteme, Netzwerke, Sicherheit und vieles mehr – werden zusammen mit einigen weiteren Hintergrundinformationen verstandlich dargestellt. Der Lernprozess wird durch zahlreiche Ubungen unterstutzt. Obwohl in Englisch geschrieben, wendet sich das Buch ausdrucklich an deutsche Studenten, die damit auch auf die Internationalisierung insbesondere im Informatikbereich eingefuhrt werden sollen. 3. Auflage mit kleinen Anderungen. Ein Forum ist unter http: //www.gilbertbrands.de/smf/ fur Fragen, Kommentare und Anregungen verfugbar.”
