Applications of Pharmacokinetic Principles in Drug Development  
Edited by Rajesh Krishna, Ph.D., F.C.P. 
Aventis Pharmaceuticals Inc., Bridgewater, NJ, USA 

This book presents a collection of articles that represent individual and
expert perspectives in both preclinical and clinical development, including
case studies on real-life examples of successful drugs that add value to the
pharmacokinetic principles learned and applied. Unlike many existing books
that focus on pharmacokinetic theory, the current book emphasizes application
of pharmacokinetic principles in new drug development.
