Genre: Medical

Now in its third edition, Principles of Pharmacology presents content in a conceptual framework that maximizes understanding and retention and minimizes rote memorization. It takes students "beyond the disease" and deep into physiologic, biochemical, and pathophysiologic systems where drugs activate or inhibit these systems by interacting with molecular and cellular targets. This unique approach ensures understanding of the mechanisms of drug actions on the body, and ultimately, in treating the human patient. Ideal for introductory pharmacology courses that emphasize critical thinking, molecular understanding, systems-based integration, and clinical preparation, the text: Features chapter-opening clinical cases and questions to establish a context for the discussion and the answers that follow Presents signature drug summary tables, updated and organized by mechanism of action, with information on clinical applications, adverse effects, contraindications, and therapeutic considerations Incorporates NEW full-color illustrations throughout, suiting the needs of visual learners and more effectively presenting concepts covered in the narrative Integrates timely content, including recently approved drugs as well as current research on drug mechanisms of action Delivers course and review material appropriate for students through a uniquely collaborative authorship consisting of medical students, residents, and faculty

Highly regarded by both students and instructors, Principles of Pharmacology: The Pathophysiologic Basis of Drug Therapy, 4th Edition, offers an integrated mechanism-based and systems-based approach to contemporary pharmacology and drug development. An easy-to-follow format helps first- and second-year students grasp challenging concepts quickly and efficiently. Each section presents the pharmacology of a physiologic or biochemical system, followed by the pharmacology of a particular aspect of that system; a clinical vignette; a discussion of the biochemistry, physiology, and pathophysiology of the system; and the drugs and drug classes that activate or inhibit the system by interacting with specific molecular and cellular targets. Clear, concise illustrations highlight key points, and drug summary tables offer quick access to essential information. The Fourth Edition features: Comprehensive updates to all chapters, including recently approved drugs Nearly 40 popular and practical Drug Summary Tables with state-of-the-art information on clinical applications, serious and common adverse effects, contraindications, and therapeutic considerations A new chapter on drug transporters, and extensively revised information on drug-receptor interactions, pharmacodynamics, drug toxicity, and pharmacogenomics Key changes to Section 1: Fundamental Principles of Pharmacology, which now provides a comprehensive framework for material in all subsequent chapters.[MH1] Hundreds of meticulously updated and colorized illustrations, including many that are new or substantially modified to highlight new understanding of physiologic, pathophysiologic, and pharmacologic mechanisms

Release Date: 2002
Genre: Medical

Completely updated, the new edition of the Oxford Textbook of Clinical Pharmacology and Drug Therapy continues to provide medical students and clinicians with a unique insight into why drugs have their therapeutic effects, by presenting the basic pharmacological principles of pharmacology as they effect the patient. An understanding of these clinical pharmacological principles is essential for rational, safe, effective, and economical prescribing. The text shows how knowledge of the scientific basis of drug action is applied in a clinical context to devise the most effective treatments for disease and to maximise the therapeutic effects of the drugs being used. This new edition includes an appraisal of the value of evidence-based medicine and a greater discussion of issues in genetics. There are specialist contributors for areas of infectious disease, gastro-intestinal disorders, blood disorders, general anaesthesia, cancer chemotherapy and immunosuppression. The revision also includes updates to both the pharmacopoeia and the drug therapy section to reflect new developments in both available drugs and in their use. In particular, areas of cardiovascular disease and stomach ulcer have been substantially changed. Aimed primarily at medical students, this book will also continue to be an invaluable source of information for trainees and clinicians. The book is in four sections which provide: -A detailed account of the principles of clinicians pharmacology, including adverse effects and drug interactions; pharmacogenetics; clinical trials; the discovery, development and marketing of drugs; drug treatment in the old and the young; and the use of drugs in relation to prenancy and other aspects of reproduction. -Advice on practical matters of drug prescribing, both in a separate section and at appropriate points throughout the book. -Detailed descriptions of the practical management of diseases with drugs, emphasizing the integration of principls with practice. -A ready-reference pharmacopoeia of over 300 commonly used drugs, describing their uses, modes of action, pharmacokinetic properties, adverse effects, and interactions, with details of rational dosage regimens.
