This preview shows page 4 - 6 out of 7 pages.

Response Feedback: Phase III studies involve administering investigational drugs to patients in a vast clinical market who are voluntarily enrolled in double-blind studies. In phase I studies, a small number of healthy human volunteers are given the drug after blood urine and other appropriate samples are taken to monitor drug metabolism. Sometimes volunteers who have a certain disease are used in phase I instead of healthy volunteers if the drug is expected to have significant toxicity. In phase II, volunteers are given various dosages of the test compound and studied in great detail. Dosage guidelines are usually determined in this phase. Nurses are more likely to be responsible for administering the investigational drugs in phase III than in phases I and II. Use of animal testing is done in the preclinical trials and would not involve a nurse. Question 11 1 out of 1 points A patient comes to primary clinic for strep throat.

Therefore, when they take drugs that bind to these proteins, they have lower amounts of free or active drug than when the same dose is given to someone of another ethnic group. Since the patient is a white American, he has been prescribed a higher-than-normal dose of the drug that binds to the acid glycoprotein.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
