Pharmacokinetic Principles and Chemotherapy Drug Dosing This presentation will focus on how pharmacokinetic principles and data direct the dosing of drugs used for treating veterinary cancers. Particular attention will be paid to dose routes and scheduling as well as drug use in special populations. A brief review of pharmacokinetic principles will be included as well as drug specific information for the included examples.


The primary objectives of this lecture are to:
• familiarize the attendees with the use of pharmacokinetic information to make better dosing decisions with cancer chemotherapy in veterinary cancer patients. This includes;
1) using algorithms relating drug dose and exposure to alter doses;
2) how these exposures relate to pharmacodynamic responses related to drug toxicity; and
3) how drug toxicities relate to drug efficacy
