The online session from the bundle can be purchased individually, but if you wish to participate in all sessions from the series you can purchase two online sessions as a complete package at the special early bird price: 60 USD 40 USD:

  • July 22 The Pharmacokinetics of Drugs Commonly Studied during Clinical Trials

  • On-demand training Clinical Trials and Medical Documentation: Resources and Translation Strategies for New Translators

  • Your purchase includes:

    * access to the online session with a Q&A portion,
    * unlimited access to video recording (available within one working week after the session),
    * a certificate of attendance available for download from your profile.

    Important: Those that purchase a seat in advance may be able to pay an "early bird" or cheaper price, and those that confirm participation later or last minute, may likely get to pay a higher fee. In some training sessions a price increase based on the number of registrants may also apply, i.e. the first 15 registered pay one price, the next 10 pay a a slightly higher price etc.

    Early payment is advised in order to secure participation and help reach the course minimum participation - unfortunately, courses may occasionally be cancelled or rescheduled, if the confirmed participation in advance is very low.

    Even if you do not attend the online session you will still have unlimited access to the video recording within one working week after the session.

    Once uploaded, the video will be available from the video centre training cancelation policy.
    The presenter will discuss a very important area in clinical trial research and translation, i.e. pharmacokinetics, which is the effect of the body on a particular drug, for drug classes commonly studied during clinical trials: diuretics, proton pump inhibitors, sulfonylureas, selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) and angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors.

    In addition, we will also learn how clinical trial researchers measure the pharmacokinetics of drugs. Essential pharmacokinetic metrics will be presented, and we will discuss what they can tell us about the effectiveness (or non-effectiveness) of a drug. These metrics include CMAX, CMIN, tMAX and AUC (area under the curve).

    Finally, we will talk about the contradictions for the above drug classes based on their pharmacokinetic profile. Pharmacokinetics is not only very interesting but also essential for pharmaceutical translators or those wishing to enter this field. As translators, we must understand the concept(s) behind the words we translate to deliver the best translation possible.

    This webinar will give you a solid foundation for pharmacokinetics as it relates to clinical drug trials and especially to the five drug classes that will be discussed.

    Participants will receive a .pdf version of the presentation, a resource list and a list of the technical terms we cover during the session.
