The Discipline of Pharmaceutics
Pharmaceutics is the study of the quantitative aspects of drug delivery, and involves the design, development, and evaluation of drugs in combination with an appropriate dosage form. A pharmaceutical scientist:
- characterizes physical properties of drugs
- develops dosage forms for drugs in the context of physicochemical properties and desired route of administration
- explores the relationship between dosage form and drug availability to the site of action
- quantitatively evaluates drug absorption, distribution, metabolism, excretion, and pharmacological activity in the living organism.
