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

Even though there has been improvement in treatment and significant reduction in mortality rate, cardiovascular disease remains one of the leading causes of death around the world. Drug therapy continues to rank high as a way to manage heart disease – making cardiovascular pharmacology a key part of medical education and drug development research. This book addresses the needs of these students and researchers by systematically integrating essentials, advances, and clinical correlations for cardiovascular drugs. The author, who has over two decades of experience teaching this topic, covers both the fundamentals and most recent advances in the pharmacology of cardiovascular drugs, as well as their integrated applications in the management of individual cardiovascular diseases. In addition, the text presents evidence-based pharmacotherapeutics in the management of common cardiovascular diseases and conditions that include dyslipidemias, hypertension, ischemic heart disease, heart failure, cardiac arrhythmias, and ischemic stroke. Written in an accessible style and consistent format, the book covers both the fundamentals and advances in the pharmacology of cardiovascular drugs, as well as their integrated applications in the management of individual cardiovascular diseases. • Blends basic and clinical sciences needed to effectively understand and treat cardiovascular diseases • Facilitates understanding of drug action and mechanism by covering physiology / pathophysiology and pharmacology • Includes guidelines and algorithms for pharmacotherapeutic management of cardiovascular diseases • Uses case presentations and study questions to enhance understanding of the material • Serves as a resource for pharmaceutical and medical students and researchers interested in cardiovascular issues

Detoxification - General Practice: The Integrative Approach. In this chapter we examine what toxins are, where they are found and how they can affect body systems to cause illness. We also examine the underlying principles of detoxification protocols. While these are commonly used by doctors with training in environmental medicine and complementary therapies, it is important to remember that the concept of detoxification will continue to be subject to rigorous debate in the field of medicine.

The guide pharmacists and students turn to first for cutting-edge coverage of drug information The goal of Drug Information: A Guide for Pharmacists, Sixth Edition is to teach students and practitioners how to effectively research, interpret, evaluate, collate, and disseminate drug information in the most efficient and effective manner possible. Updated to reflect the realities of today’s practice, the book also addresses important issues such as the legal and ethical considerations of providing drug information. Drug Information: A Guide for Pharmacists begins by introducing the concept of drug information, including its history, and provides details on the various places drug information specialists may find employment. This is followed by information on how to answer a question, from the process of gathering necessary background information through determining the actual informational need, to answering the question. The chapter on drug information resources includes descriptions of the most commonly used references and contains new information on apps available to practitioners. As with past editions, practical examples are also provided. The Sixth Edition has been updated throughout, with chapters from previous editions rearranged to make the subject flow better. This edition is also enhanced by the addition of new chapters on journal clubs and counterfeit drugs/drug shortages. In addition, coverage of Policy Development, Project Design and Implementation has been greatly expanded.
