PMSC 3235 - Pharmaceutics and Biopharmaceutics

(5 credits)
Prerequisites: PMSC 3122 . Corequisites: PMSC 3231 . The principals of this course include the preparation, physicochemical evaluation, stability, liberation, absorption, distribution and action of drug from pharmaceutical drug delivery systems. The course includes the study of the pharmaceutical principles for solid, liquid and disperse systems and the mechanisms of drug release with emphasis on solid and semi-solid systems, the formulation and development of a variety of immediate release, modified release and novel drug delivery systems, the study of physiochemical principals and pharmaceutical drug delivery systems and their composition both outside and inside a living organism, principally humans, and the implications and relationship with patient-centered care. In addition, this course will provide an in-depth knowledge of the preparation, drug liberation and absorption of drug from various drug delivery systems. Students also learn about the design and evaluation of dosing regimens and drug delivery systems that overcome barriers and optimize drug action, and minimize adverse effects. Drug absorption processes, bioavailability and bioequivalence determination and interpretation will be included as an  introduction to pharmacokinetic principles.
