MORE ABOUT THIS BOOK

Main description:

A clear, straightforward resource to guide you throughpreclinical drug development

Following this book′s step–by–step guidance, you cansuccessfully initiate and complete critical phases of preclinicaldrug development. The book serves as a basic,comprehensivereference to prioritizing and optimizing leads, toxicity,pharmacogenomics, modeling, and regulations. This singledefinitive, easy–to–use resource discusses all the issues that needconsideration and provides detailed instructions for currentmethods and techniques.


Each chapter was written by one or more leading experts in thefield. These authors, representing the many disciplines involved inpreclinical toxicology screening and testing, give you the toolsneeded to apply an effective multidisciplinary approach. Theeditor, with more than thirty years′ experience working withpharmaceutical and biotechnology companies, carefully reviewed allthe chapters to ensure that each one is thorough, accurate, andclear.


Among the key topics covered are:



  • In vitro mammalian cytogenetics tests


  • Phototoxicity


  • Carcinogenicity studies


  • The pharmacogenomics of personalized medicine


  • Bridging studies


  • Toxicogenomics and toxicoproteomics



Each chapter offers a full exploration of problems that may beencountered and their solutions. The authors also set forth thelimitations of various methods and techniques used in determiningthe safety and efficacy of a drug during the preclinical stage.


This is a hands–on guide for pharmaceutical scientists involvedin preclinical testing,enabling them to perform and documentpreclinical safety tests to meet all FDA requirements beforeclinical trials may begin.
