  2. A drug that combines with the receptor and produces an effect
  3. DEA
    Drug Enforcement Agency
  4. The most rapid drug response
    Intravenous Route
  5. ADME
    • Absorption

  8. The time it takes for a drug's effect to cease
  9. The maximum intensity of effect or response that can be produced by a drug

  11. The most important route of drug excretion
  12. The time it takes for a drug's effect to begin
  13. Counteracts the action of the agonist
  14. Chemical Equivalence
    When a drug meets the chemical and physical standards established by agencies
  15. Biological Equivalence
    When a drug produces similar concentrations of the drug in the blood and tissues
  16. Therapeutic Equivalence
    When a drug is proven to have an equal therapeutic effect in a clinical trail
  17. Brand/Trade Name
    • The official name of a drug when it is commercially marketed

    • Responsible for protecting and promoting public health
    • It must be determined that a drug is both: safe & effective
  20. Human Studies Stages
    • Phase I: dosing & safety trails in healthy volunteers
    • Phase II: clinical efficacy & adverse effects of the drugs in humans
    • Phase III: a large scale trail that evaluates the safety and efficacy of the drugs in specific people who have the condition for which the drug is indicated
    • Phase IV: post marketing surveillance
  21. Intramuscular
    Into the muscle
  22. Subcutaneous

  24. Intrathecal
    Directly into the spinal fluid
  25. Intraperitoneal
    Into the peritoneum or body cavity
  26. CYPs
    a major enzyme involved in drug metabolism
  27. THREE renal routes
