This edition contains the latest information on molecular pharmacology as it redefines the definitive database of pharmacologic therapeutics. All the newly approved drugs are included. Also, for each drug class, there is a complete overview of chemical composition, mechanisms of action, indications and contraindications, clinical applications and potential side-effects.
