Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to invite you to share your knowledge and experience by publishing within the Special Issue focused on dose optimization strategies for old and new drug formulations in veterinary and human medicine.

The aim of this Special Issue is to reveal the power of advanced models such as pharmacokinetic-pharmacodynamic models, physiologically based pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamics models, the population pharmacokinetic approach and all other methods that can contribute to dose optimization in a diverse population and that can improve the use of available old and new drug formulations in clinical settings or in veterinary practice with farm and companion animals.

Original research articles and reviews are welcome. Research areas may include (but are not limited to) the following crucial issues for the successful therapy of animals and humans: pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamics studies which suggest optimization of the dosing regimens of new and older drug molecules; drug–dietary (food) supplements interactions; drug–drug interactions and drug–feed additives interactions are also of great interest if adjustment of the dosing regimen is required. New drug formulations with improved pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamics profiles are of interest.

We look forward to receiving your contributions with the hope of shedding more light on the contemporary options for the optimization of drug administration of available old and new pharmaceutical formulations.
