A companion text to the author's earlier book "Introduction to Medicinal Chemistry", this new title provides a unique introduction to medicinal chemistry including computing and other modern techniques. The book covers a wide range of topics including the role of industry, governments and legal considerations. The authors provide an introduction to biopharmaceutics, including a discussion on the physiochemical principles and drug targeting and delivering systems. There is coverage of pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics, and information is provided on the design of new medicines. The book culminates with a thorough look at drug metabolism including, clearance, metabolic processes, stereo selectivity, species differences and metabolic pathways for some major drug catagories. The main objective of medicinal chemistry is the design and synthesis of new medicines, and this book, with its clear and concise coverage of the field, will prove an invaluable source of information in this rapidly developing and important field of chemistry.
