Now in its third edition, this classic reference is the one-stop-shop for information on the foundations of medicinal chemistry for pharmaceutical researchers who are involved in drug development & discovery but who do not have a background in medicinal chemistry. Wermuth aids pharmaceutical researchers and chemists in making faster, more accurate identifications of the active substances that could potentially treat the disorder they are researching. New chapters on Drug Absorption & Transport give pharmaceutical scientists information on how potential drugs can move through the drug discovery/development phases more quickly. This third edition still stands as the only source for practical aspects of medicinal chemistry by focusing on the daily problems met by the medicinal chemist in drug discovery.
NEW TO THIS EDITION:
* Focus on chemoinformatics and drug discovery
* Enhanced pedagogical features
* New chapters including:
- Drug absorption and transport
- Multi-target drugs
* Updates on hot new areas:
NEW! Drug discovery and the latest techniques
NEW! How potential drugs can move through the drug discovery/ development phases more quickly

Camille-Georges Wermuth PhD, Prof. and Founder of Prestwick Chemical, was Professor of Organic Chemistry and Medicinal Chemistry at the Faculty of Pharmacy, Louis Pasteur University, Strasbourg, France from 1969 to 2002. He became interested in Medicinal Chemistry during his two years of military service in the French Navy at the "Centre dEtudes Physio-biologiques Appliquées à la Marine" in Toulon. During this time he worked under the supervision of Dr Henri Laborit, the scientist who invented artificial hibernation and discovered chlorpromazine.
Professor Wermuths main research themes focus on the chemistry and the pharmacology of pyridazine derivatives. The 3-aminopyridazine pharmacophore, in particular, allowed him to accede to an impressive variety of biological activities, including antidepressant and anticonvulsant molecules; inhibitors of enzymes such as mono-amine-oxidases, phosphodiesterases and acetylcholinesterase; ligands for neuro-receptors: GABA-A receptor antagonists, serotonine 5-HT3 receptor antagonists, dopaminergic and muscarinic agonists. More recently, in collaboration with the scientists of the Sanofi Company, he developed potent antagonists of the 41 amino-acid neuropeptide CRF (corticotrophin-releasing factor) which regulates the release of ACTH and thus the synthesis of corticoids in the adrenal glands. Professor Wermuth has also, in collaboration with Professor Jean-Charles Schwartz and Doctor Pierre Sokoloff (INSERM, Paris), developed selective ligands of the newly discovered dopamine D3 receptor. After a three-year exploratory phase, this research has led to nanomolar partial agonists which may prove useful in the treatment of the cocaine-withdrawal syndrome.
Besides about 300 scientific papers and about 60 patents, Professor Wermuth is co-author or editor of several books including; Pharmacologie Moléculaire, Masson & Cie, Paris; Médicaments Organiques de Synthèse, Masson & Cie, Paris; Medicinal Chemistry for the 21st Century, Blackwell Scientific Publications, Oxford; Trends in QSAR and Molecular Modeling, ESCOM, Leyden, two editions of The Practice of Medicinal Chemistry, Academic Press, London and The Handbook of Pharmaceutical Salts, Properties Selection and Use, Wiley-VCH.
Professor Wermuth was awarded the Charles Mentzer Prize of the Société Française de Chimie Thérapeutique in 1984, the Léon Velluz Prize of the French Academy of Science in 1995, the Prix de lOrdre des Pharmaciens 1998 by the French Academy of Pharmacy and the Carl Mannich Prize of the German Pharmaceutical Society in 2000. He is Corresponding Member of the German Pharmaceutical Society and was nominated Commandeur des Palmes Académiques in 1995. He has been President of the Medicinal Chemistry Section of the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC) from 1988 to 1992 and from January 1998 to January 2000 was President of the IUPAC Division on Chemistry and Human Health.
