4). As new approaches in computer simulation of clinical trials develop, the construct of therapeutic coverage will probably attract widened attention, because it allows focusing on the periods of inadequate drug action and their clinical correlates. Use of the therapeutic coverage concept serves to emphasize, however, how little we know about the post-dose duration of action of widely used drugs. One can only hope that appropriate studies to define this key parameter will become standard in new drug development.
