Clinicians routinely monitor drug pharmacodynamics by directly measuring physiological indices of therapeutic response e.g. lipid concentrations, blood glucose, blood pressure, clotting tests. For many drugs there is either no readily available measure of effect or it is insufficiently sensitive. Large inter-individual variation in the relationship between dose and response can make individualizing drug dosage difficult, for example drugs with narrow therapeutic indices, large inter-individual variation in pharmacokinetics, or concentration-dependent pharmacokinetics.
