Learning outcomes Main goals: This course unit enables students to have the main building blocks that allow a correct understanding of the concept of bioavailability, the factors that depends of their determination and implication on the therapeutic efficacy of the drugs.

The student will be able to:
- understand the basic parameters of Pharmacology and to recognize the general factors that contribute to the drugs bioavailability
- Identify and analyze the protocols and results of bioequivalence assays
Syllabus I – Introduction to Pharmacology
II - Influence of absorption, distribution, metabolism and Excretion on drugs bioavailability
III – Genetic and non-genetic factors that influence the Inter individual Variability of drugs response
IV – Relationship between the chemical characteristics and drugs bioavailability
V - Relationship between drug dosage forms and routes of administration and drugs bioavailability
VI – Drugs bioavailability determination
VII- Bioequivalence and Biodrugs
Main Bibliography Selected articles that will be delivered to students.
To the general aspects of Pharmacology: Pharmacology, Rang and Dale, 8th ed (2015).
Teaching Methodologies and Assessment Criteria The teaching-learning process is organized in the form of tutorial activities, partialy by videoconference.
