PK/PD Associates announces today the release of PK Curve a mobile application on the iPhone and iPod touch platform, providing a FREE mobile resource and training tool for students, industry scientists, consultants, and anyone interested in pharmacy or pharmaceutical sciences. The app accommodates 8 different PK models, calculates area under the curve (AUC), maximum concentration (Cmax), terminal half-life (t1/2) and produces concentration-time graphs in linear and logarithmic scales.
An overview of PK Curve feature set includes the ability to automatically calculate the Cmax, AUC and t1/2 when users select the route of administration, number of compartments and input profile. The app will automatically draw the concentration-time profile using both a linear and logarithmic y-axis. The advantages of PK Curve app allows users to quickly generate PK concentration-time curves, accurately calculate PK parameters with minimal effort, quickly evaluate changes in pharmacokinetic parameters and their impact on drug exposure and the concentration-time profile. Users can save the PK Curve and share the data by emailing the settings, parameters, and both the linear and logarithmic graphs using their iPhone or iPod touch.
"I have been teaching and training for over 11 years in the pharmaceutical industry, developing on-line training tools for pharmacy students, pharmacokinetics lectures for non-PK scientists, and given specialized training in population pharmacokinetics," says Dr. Nathan Teuscher, Founder of PK/PD Associates. He adds "My dynamic teaching style helps students understand the material and integrate the concepts into practice, so it seemed natural to develop a free resource along with my other intuitive software tools to aid in pharmacokinetic analysis."
The PK Curve app includes a link to the Learn PK/PD blog (http://blog.learnpkpd.com) where users can get instant access to information about pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics. Teuscher worked with Apptology Inc. to develop and publish the PK Curve mobile app on the iPhone and iPod touch platform and is currently available for FREE in the iTunes App Store http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/pk-curve/id442624535?mt=8.
