This comprehensive Sixth Edition of this well-known text has been fully revised and updated to meet the changing curricula of medicinal chemistry courses. The new edition continues to include a thorough description of drug discovery and pharmacodynamic agents and integrates traditional principles in medicinal chemistry with pharmacology and therapeutics. The new emphasis is firmly placed on pharmaceutical care that focuses on the patient, and on the pharmacist as a therapeutic consultant, rather than a chemist. Respected academic and research professionals from around the world have contributed to this exhaustive reference, yet a consistent style and format are present throughout for simplified navigation.
