False Conclusions and False Convictions: Attempts of Elucidating Pharmacodynamic Effect from an Analytical Chemistry Result

March 22, 2011

No one should be per­mit­ted to opine phar­ma­co­dy­namic effects of a mul­ti­ple order kinetic drug based upon an ana­lyt­i­cal chem­istry result alone.

This is because of the very inter­est­ing world of phar­ma­co­ki­net­ics and the multi-variant prob­lem of the human body and the human con­di­tion. The ana­lyt­i­cal chem­istry result must be equated not sim­ply to symp­to­ma­tol­ogy, but uniquely to it, mean­ing that the use of the drug uniquely and to the exclu­sion of all other rea­sons pro­duced the obser­va­tions of the marked diminu­tion of dex­ter­ity, marked diminu­tion of cog­ni­tive func­tion or marked diminu­tion of psy­chomo­tor function.
