MORE ABOUT THIS BOOK

Main description:

Drugs arising from new insights gained into the molecular genetics of disease development and progression account for a significant proportion of pharmaceutical sales. Several enabling technologies have been developed over recent years which have made this new drug discovery revolution possible. The confluence of these novel technologies with the coordination of international effort, and the rapid dissemination of new knowledge has led to particularly rapid progress. This progress has been so startling that many now speak of personalising pharmacotherapy on the basis of genetic profiling of the patient.


The aim of Principles and Applications of Pharmacogenomics is to provide an understanding of the genetic sciences underpinning the development of modern drugs and to explain the genetic and environmental bases of variability in human response to those drugs. It does so through an unravelling of the core scientific principles and careful choice of illustrative examples drawn from the current literature. Principally written for all those with an interest in pharmacogenetics, including pharmacologists, pharmacists, drug developers in the pharmaceutical industry and drug regulators, the evidence–based perspective adopted should also provide a valuable text for undergraduates in pharmacy and clinical pharmacology.
