Details

Davidian and Giltinan (1995, 1.1, p. 2) describe data obtained during a pilot study to investigate the pharmacokinetics of the drug cefamandole. Plasma concentrations of the drug were measured on six healthy volunteers at 14 time points following an intraveneous dose of 15 mg/kg body weight of cefamandole.
