MORE ABOUT THIS BOOK

Main description:

A practical guide and up–to–datereference to toxicology testing


Toxicology is not only an integral part of the identification of drug candidates, structural optimization, and lead candidate selection, but it is a cornerstone of managing attrition in the drug discovery process. This book describes the background to, and conduct of, the principal non–clinical studies that are central to drug development.


Written by two highly experienced toxicologists, Pharmaceutical Toxicology in Practice: A Guide to Non–Clinical Development provides an understanding of the key components of the non–clinical phase of drug development. Taking a hands–on approach, the book′s core chapters address conduct, types, and reporting. Opening with a practical description of toxicology and its role in the development of pharmaceuticals, the book details:



  • International regulations, including the impact of the new REACH standards for chemical safety


  • Interdisciplinary interactions among scientists in drug development


  • Steps in toxicity testing and risk management


  • Methods of genetic toxicology assays, genomics, and in vivo screening as a complement to traditional toxicology



By exploring the roles and responsibilities of the interdisciplinary members of a drug development team, Pharmaceutical Toxicology in Practice will help the drug development scientist to understand the toxicological profile of the test compound; the drug discovery scientist to refine the chemical motif of the test compound to optimize efficacy and reduce side effects; and the drug development team to advance the test compound to the clinic and then to the marketplace and the patient.
