DESCRIPTION A unique practice-oriented introduction to physical pharmacy Applied Physic al Pharmacy explores the fundamental physicochemic al properties and proc esses important for understanding how drugs are transformed into usable and stable drug produc ts that release their drug upon administration, and for understanding the different processes that the released drug may enc ounter on its way to its pharmacological target and on its way to being eliminated by the body. Applied Physic al Pharmacy begins with a review of key biopharmac eutics c oncepts of drug liberation, absorption, distribution, metabolism, and exc retion. These c oncepts, which describe the fate of the drug in the body, set the framework for subsequent c hapters that describe physic ochemic al properties and proc esses such as states of matter, solutions, ionization, dissolution and partitioning, mass transport, c omplexation, and protein binding. Conc epts in these c hapters are important for not only understanding a drugвTMs fate in the body, but also for providing a sc ientific basis for rational drug formulation and usage. Other physical pharmacy topics important to drug formulation are discussed in the chapters that follow, which describe dispersed systems, rheology, and interfacial phenomena. The book c oncludes with an overview of the principles of kinetic s that are essential to understanding the rates at which many of the processes discussed in previous chapters occur. To fac ilitate learning, c hapters are enhanced by Learning Objec tives, Key Points, Problems, and Clinic al Questions. In order to make the book as relevant to real-world prac tice as possible, this edition includes an inc reased number of clinical examples and applications.
