About this Book

This two volume set provides a comprehensive account of the entire sequence of operations involved in discovering a drug through the actual delivery of the drug to clinicians and medical practitioners.

  • Includes case studies of the discovery of erythromycin analogs (antibiotics), Tagamet, and Ultiva (remifentanil)
  • Discusses the discovery of agents for the treatment and management of bacterial infections, Parkinson's disease, psoriasis, ulcers and stomach pain, atopic dermatitis, asthma, and cancer
  • Contains chapters on combinatorial chemistry, molecular biology-based drug discovery, genomics, and chemogenomics

The first volume of this set thoroughly describes conceptualizing a drug, creating a library of candidates for testing, screening those candidates for in vitro and in vivo activity, conducting and analyzing the results of clinical trials, and revising the drug as necessary.
