mobilePK - A Computer Program Designed for Clinical Pharmacokinetic (CPK)
Services (or Therapeutic Drug Monitoring, TDM) Running
on Android mobile phone.
mobilePK® is created for
your own personal uses and testing purposes.
mobilePK® shall be
always used as a guide or a
decision support tool only. Medical decisions
should NOT be solely based on the results of this
program. Although this program has been tested
thoroughly, its accuracy still cannot be guaranteed. Once you use mobilePK®, you have
automatically agreed with this announcement.
mobilePK (formerly JavaPK for Mobiles) is a
clinical pharmacokinetic (or therapeutic drug monitoring,
TDM) tool for Android mobile phone only. mobilePK was written in Java ME. It was
built with Sawchuk-Zaske method (aminoglycosides and
vancomycin), Chiou method (theophylline iv inf.) and
Bayesian estimation method (gentamicin, tobramyin, amikacin,
vancomycin, digoxin, phenytoin, cyclosporin-A, lithium,
carbamazepine, theophylline and warfarin). With Bayesian
estimation, one can use only one blood sample (at
steady-state) to estimate individual pharmacokinetic
parameters at steady-state.
And now we are have a similar program running different platforms
running on Mac OS X, Windows PC, and Linux-based PC
(Fedora Core 3/4/5). Please check
(formerly JavaPK® for Desktop).
Algorithms used to calculate individual
pharmacokinetic parameters are based on Sawchuk-Zaske method, Chiou method
(for theophylline iv inf. only) and Bayesian estimation.
mobilePK is distributed as
freeware starting on Dec. 12, 2007.
Users do not need to register for this version now. Just install and tap to run.
