Course Description

In this course you will learn the theory and application of non-compartmental analysis (NCA).  NCA is used to characterize the kinetics of a compound without assuming a specific compartmental model.   You will learn NCA methodology, how to perform NCA using Phoenix WinNonlin software (version 8.3.x), and how to interpret resulting pharmacokinetic parameters.   

This on-demand course is a comprehensive review of noncompartmental analysis of pharmacokinetic data, and will cover the basics through the most complex areas of noncompartmental analysis.   The course includes lectures, practice exercises and quizzes.
