Pharmacokinetics

A pharmacokinetics expert witness typically has a PhD and expertise in drug interactions, forensic toxicology, medicinal chemistry, and/or clinical pharmacology.

Pharmacokinetics is a branch of pharmacology that studies how an organism affects a drug. Pharmacokinetics studies drug absorption, distribution, metabolism, and excretion. Clinical pharmacokinetics is the application of pharmacokinetics to therapeutic drugs in a patient. Together with the specialized discipline of pharmacodynamics, a pharmacokinetics expert guides drug discovery, drug development, clinical trials, dose recommendations, benefits, and adverse effects of a substance.

Matters requiring pharmacokinetics expert witness services could be a criminal investigation, involving the analysis of evidence to isolate and identify compounds and substances in forensic samples. A forensic toxicologist might also provide expert testimony in matters such as a medical case that requires toxicology or opioid ingestion expertise. Matters requiring support by pharmacokinetics expert can also involve intellectual property matters such as a patent litigation or a trade secret dispute.

Litigation support activities by a pharmacology expert witness could include forensic toxicology, expert report, expert opinion and expert witness testimony at a trial. In a high-profile case, or litigation involving a significant financial stake, a law firm may request a qualified expert with prior trial testimony experience.
