PK-DB - a pharmacokinetics database


[^] PK-DB is a database and web interface for pharmacokinetics data and information from clinical trials as well as pre-clinical research. PK-DB allows to curate pharmacokinetics data integrated with the corresponding meta-information

  • characteristics of studied patient collectives and individuals (age, bodyweight, smoking status, ...)
  • applied interventions (e.g., dosing, substance, route of application)
  • measured pharmacokinetics time courses and pharmacokinetics parameters (e.g., clearance, half-life, ...).

Important features are

  • the representation of experimental errors and variation
  • the representation and normalisation of units
  • annotation of information to biological ontologies
  • calculation of pharmacokinetics information from time courses (apparent clearance, half-life, ...)
  • a workflow for collaborative data curation
  • strong validation rules on data, and simple access via a REST API

PK-DB is available at
