A Mathematical Model for Individualized Dosage
A mathematical model is proposed in order to minimize the risk of possible damaqe to a patient subject to a long term dosage, due mainlv to the side effect innherent in every drug. A three compartmental model is used from which the steady state at prespecified intake time in the gastro intestinal tract is obtained. This information is used to obtain the specific amount of drug for each patient.
