Your task is to Filgrastim-GCSFwhich is or is related to the topics covered in this module. You must find some information about:
• The structure of the drug
• Its molecular target
• Its mechanism of action
• Its pharmacokinetics incl. ADME
• Its pathophysiology
• In doing so, elicit the rationale for its prescription
Your report should be: Must include structures, figures and references) All information needs to be extracted from peer-reviewed references such as journal articles. Papers that include non-peer-reviewed sources will receive a zero. For this assessment you will be awarded marks for having: o Good, scientific description and explanation o An appropriate selection of references o Clear sections to your review including and beginning, middle and end o Good, clear writing style (including grammar and spelling) MARKING SCHEME 70% relevant scientific content relating to the drug being discussed 10% The structure of the drug 10% Indication (s) 10% Molecular target 10% Mechanism of action 10% Pharmacokinetics incl.
