Objectives: The main objective of the current study was to present a further example which showed that a nontraditional mathematical modeling method can be advantageously used for the development of mathematical models in pharmacokinetics. An additional objective was to motivate researchers working in the field of pharmacokinetics to use a modeling method based on the theory of dynamic systems in their research work. Method: The current study is a companion piece of the earlier study by Kramer et al. Therefore the data published in the study cited here were used. As stated above, an advanced modeling method based on the theory of dynamic systems was employed. Conclusions: All mathematical models developed, successfully described the data of all volunteers investigated in the previous study by Kramer et al. and in the current study. The modeling method used in the current study is universal, comprehensive, and flexible. Therefore, it can be used to developed mathematical models not only in pharmacokinetics but also in several other scientific and practical fields.
