9780123695338: Drug Discovery: From Bedside to Wall Street

Everyone expects something from the drug industry. Physicians and patients, investors, regulators and administrators all have an active interest. Everyone wants to know what makes drugs 'work' medically and economically. Why are drugs so expensive? Is it the drug companies or investors who demand high profits? What governs the pharmacoeconomics? Why are so few diseases treatable? This book opens the windows and doors of the industry telling the story of drug development by using real stories from inside the process.

Review:

"Doody's 3 Star Review: It was refreshing reading about these matters from a different perspective. The critical nature of the book, I would imagine, was intentional to play the proverbial "devil's advocate". This book truly caused me to rethink some attitudes and opinions I have had about pharmaceutical company behavior in the marketplace. It's nice that once in a while such a refreshing publication comes along." - Albert Wertheimer, B.S., MBA, PhD, Temple University School of Pharmacy for DOODY'S "[This book] is very readable and insightful. I am hopeful that many people will pick it up, and develop a better appreciation for what goes into making the treatments that everyone wants!" - Dennis W. Choi, M.D., Sr. VP Merck (2006) "Anyone who thinks solutions to drug development are just around the corner would be well-advised to get this insider's views as to where the real problems lie." - Floyd Bloom, CEO Neurome, former Editor of Science magazine (2006) "...a very informative and exciting book filling an important niche. Very easy to read, it encouraged me to think about several things." - Richard Nass, Vanderbilt University (2006)

From the Author:

'Anyone who thinks solutions to drug development are just around the corner would be well-advised to get this insider's views as to where the real problems lie.' comment from Floyd Bloom CEO of Neurome Inc and world renowned neuroscientist, former Editor of Science magazine. When Tamas Bartfai and I wrote this book we very much had the audience of the New York Times (or similar serious newspapers) feature article readers in mind. Hardly a day passes without there being some article about the launch of new drugs, the withdrawal of drugs, the business of Pharma or the discoveries of Biotech, etc. We think our book is an objective look at and inside the drug industry and puts all these stories in context. The Pharma and Biotech industries are extremely important for society and business and we think the book is of great interest to a general audience, not just scientists in academia or drug discovery. Anyone who has read newspaper articles about the pharmaceutical industry, whether they be scientists, business people, lawyers or concerned citizens, would find this book to be a rewarding read.
