Advances in knowledge and technology have revolutionized the process of drug development, making it possible to design drugs for a given target or disease. Building on the foundation laid by the previous three editions, Smith and Williamsa€™ Introduction to the Principles of Drug Design and Action, Fourth Edition includes the latest information on topics such as gene therapy, computer-aided design, and molecular techniques including proteomics. Using real-world examples that illustrate the principles of drug design, the author explores the discovery of lead compounds and their manipulation in the production of non-toxic, metabolically stable drug candidates that will interact with target receptors in a predicted fashion. See whata€™s new in the Fourth Edition: Fully updates and expands the contents Coverage of agonists and antagonists of neuro-transmitters Information on the design of stable peptide-like drugs The human genome and its impact on drug discovery and development Advances in therapy and pharmacokinetics Adopting a from-the-bench-to-the-marketplace approach, the book provides a thorough grounding in rational drug design. It emphasizes principles and elucidates a framework for basic drug design into which current and, more importantly, future drugs will fit.See whata€™s new in the Fourth Edition: Fully updates and expands the contents Coverage of agonists and antagonists of neuro-transmitters Information on the design of stable peptide-like drugs The human genome and its impact on drug ...
