This successful guide assists scientists trained in molecular biology and related fields who now need to know the basic theories, principles and practical applications of pharmacology. This latest edition continues the tradition of better preparing researchers in the basics of pharmacology. With expanded hands-on exercises and the addition of Pharmacokinetics coverage, new human interest material including historical facts in pharmacology and a new section on therapeutics that will help readers identify with diseases and drug treatments. The ideal book for researchers in drug discovery who have seen their role shift from 'individual' to 'team player' where that team includes chemists, biologists, and others with strong, but varied, science backgrounds who must now work together toward their common pharmacology goal.At GlaxoSmithKline, a pharmaceuticals world-leader, Terry Kenakin regularly teaches a course for their research scientists and has drawn on his experience to create a pharmacology primer. Features of this title are as mentioned below. New - this part contains latest coverage of the chemistry of drugs including expanded coverage of the pharmacokinetic discussion of druglike properties that increases reader understanding of necessary ADME (Absorption, Distribution, Metabolism, and Excretion) properties and increases the rate of drug approval and acceptance. Context - this part features unique discussions on various drug discovery teams and the role of the chemist on those teams and promotes the understanding of these expanding roles and responsibilities and how to maximize the effective contributions of each matrix team member.Real-world learning - there are hands-on exercises, with extensive answers, utilizing real data on structure activity relationships as well as utilization of pharmacological principles to make general statements about how changes in structure lead to changes in drug activity. There are hands on exercises with extensive answers on Pharmacokinetics and this part strengthens practical application and understanding of core concepts and principles.
