Using Pharmacokinetics to Assure Chemical Food Safety

Ronette Gehring

As a veterinarian, I’m responsible for the health and welfare of my animal patients. Sometimes, drugs are used to treat animals that are being raised for food (e.g., meat and milk). Therefore, tissue residues are a unique concern in veterinary medicine because indirect exposure to drugs and their metabolites through eating meat or milk could […]

FDA Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) This five-year project, in conjunction with researchers at the F.D.A’s Center for Veterinary Medicine (CVM), aims to deliver physiologically-based pharmacokinetic (PBPK) dog models intended to help streamline the process of veterinary drug product development and evaluation. This will be accomplished by facilitating the use of pharmacokinetic principles as […]
