Extracted from the Drug Abuse Handbook, 2nd edition, to give you just the information you need at an affordable price. Pharmacokinetics and Pharmacodynamics of Abused Drugs is a concise and focused volume devoted to the metabolism and measurable effects of drugs on the human body. Beginning with basic concepts and models designed to provide a fundamental understanding of the subject matter, the book details the specifics of absorption, distribution, and elimination pathways and rates of commonly abused drugs. It analyzes the effects of drug use on human performance including response time, memory and recall, logical and cognitive processes, as well as physiological changes. Packed with data and comparative studies, this handy volume considers the effects of marketed and prescription medications as well as illicit drugs including opioids, cannabis, cocaine, methamphetamine, MDMA, ketamine, nicotine, and LSD. Containing 29 figures and tables and extensive references, this is a must-have resource for the influence of drug use and abuse on human physiology and performance.

Drugs, Driving and Traffic Safety gives a comprehensive overview of the effects of different medical conditions like neurological disorders, anxiety and depression and their pharmaceutical treatment on driving ability. In addition, the effects of alcohol and drugs of abuse are discussed. Leading experts present the different methodologies to examine effects of drugs on driving, and summarize the recent scientific evidence including epidemiological studies, roadside surveys, laboratory tests, driving simulators, and the standardized driving test. The volume includes guidelines of the International Council on Alcohol, Drugs and Traffic Safety (ICADTS) and the ICADTS Drugs List 2007. Drugs, Driving and Traffic Safety is written for physicians, psychiatrists and pharmacists who want to inform their patients who use psychoactive drugs.

This book is a comprehensive resource on psychotropic medications, detailing the latest methods for defining their characteristics, their use in different patient populations, and drug-drug interactions; an important collection of information forclinicians, students, researchers, and members of the pharmaceutical industry alike. The first section provides the foundational principles of these drugs. Mathematical modeling of parameters that affect their entryto,and exit from, the central nervous system (CNS) compartment are presented on an individual basis and then applied to target populations with specific disease states. Methods and characteristics that inform the transfer of these drugs from the laboratory bench to use in patient care are discussed, including imaging techniques, genetics and physiological barriers, such as the blood-brain barrier. The second section describes the characteristics of specific agents,nominally arranged intodifferent therapeutic categories and with reference crossover use in different disease states. The pharmacologic characteristics of different drug formulations are explored in the context of their ability to improve patient adherence. The third section focuses on drug-drug interactions.Psychotropic medications from different categories are frequently prescribed together,or alongside medications used to treat comorbid conditions, and the information provided is directly relevant to the clinic, as a result. The clinical application of pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of CNS agents has made significant progress over the past 50 years and new information is reported by numerous publications in psychiatry, neurology, and pharmacology.Our understanding of the interrelationship between these medications, receptors, drug transporters, as well as techniques for measurement and monitoring their interactions,isfrequently updated. However, with information presented on a host of different platforms, and in different formats, obtaining the full picture can be difficult. This title aims to collate this information into a single source that can be easily interpreted and applied towards patient care by the clinical practitioner, and act as a reference for all others who have an interest in psychopharmacological agents.

Forensic Pharmacology explores the many links between drugs and forensic science, from drug-induced violence and crime to determining whether a person taking a certain medication is capable of standing trial for a crime, to the forgery of prescriptions. The reader is introduced to the daily work of the scientists, and the principles of pharmacology and toxicology, as well as the various classes and technical analysis of drugs of abuse.

This is a second edition to the original published by Springer in 2006. The comprehensive volume takes a textbook approach systematically developing the field by starting from linear models and then moving up to generalized linear and non-linear mixed effects models. Since the first edition was published the field has grown considerably in terms of maturity and technicality. The second edition of the book therefore considerably expands with the addition of three new chapters relating to Bayesian models, Generalized linear and nonlinear mixed effects models, and Principles of simulation. In addition, many of the other chapters have been expanded and updated.

Here's the information students need to know about how drugs work and how they can affect athletic performance. Through "real life" scenarios, students gain insights into the application of pharmacology in their clinical practice—from assisting an athlete who is taking a new medication to recognizing drug-related side effects when a negative reaction is occurring to handling instances of drug abuse. Beginning with an overview of pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics, the text presents prescription and over-the-counter medications in relation to the injuries or health conditions athletic trainers commonly encounter. Frequently abused substances such as amphetamines, herbals, and anabolic steroids are also addressed. Legal and ethical issues of drug use are presented, such as HIPAA–mandated privacy issues, drug testing, and which drugs are deemed as acceptable or banned according to NCAA and US Olympic standard.

In this volume, the specific challenges and problems facing the evaluation of new oncology agents are explored with regards to pharmacokinetic, pharmacodynamic modeling and clinical pharmacology development strategies. This book delivers, with an emphasis on the oncology therapeutic area, the goals set in the first three volumes: namely – to provide clinical pharmacologists practical insights for the application of pharmacology, pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics for new drug development strategies. Pharmacokinetic-pharmacodynamic concepts for tyrosine kinases, the evaluation of cardiac repolarization prolongation through QTc interval effects, efficacy- and safety-response analyses to support new drug approvals, clinical and preclinical tumor growth modeling, and flat- vs weight-based dose selection are showcased from an oncology clinical pharmacologist’s point-of-view. Oncology development strategies are surveyed for new FDA-approvals to identify patterns in expectations at time of first approval. The special considerations necessary to address combination drug development, metronomics, biosimilars and breakthrough therapies are also presented.
