Statistics plays an important role in pharmacology and related subjects such as toxicology and drug discovery and development. Improper statistical tool selection for analyzing the data obtained from studies may result in wrongful interpretation of the performance or safety of drugs. This book communicates statistical tools in simple language. The examples used are similar to those that scientists encounter regularly in their research area. The authors provide cognitive clues for selection of appropriate tools to analyze the data obtained from the studies and explain how to interpret the result of the statistical analysis.

This unique and much needed textbook meets the rapidly emerging needs of programs training pharmacologic scientists seeking careers in basic research and drug discovery rather than such applied fields as pharmacy and medicine. While the market is crowded with many clinical and therapeutic pharmacology textbooks, the field of pharmacology is booming with the prospects of discovering new drugs, and virtually no extant textbook meets this need at the student level. The market is so bereft of such approaches that many pharmaceutical companies will adopt Hacker, et al. to help train new drug researchers. The boom in pharmacology is driven by the recent decryption of the human genome and enormous progress in controlling genes and synthesizing proteins, making new and even custom drug design possible. This book makes use of these discoveries in presenting its topics, moving logically from drug receptors to the target molecules drug researchers seek, covering such modern topics along the way as side effects, drug resistance, Pharmacogenomics, and even nutriceuticals, one in a string of culminating chapters on the drug discovery process. It uses individual drugs to explain molecular actions. It features full color art program that explains molecular and chemical concepts graphically. Logical structure reflecting the current state of pharmacology and translational research, starting with receptors and finishing with target molecules. This book covers such intricacies as drug resistance and cell death. Consistent format across chapters and pedagogical strategies make this textbook a superior learning tool.

Advances in pharmacogenomics and proteomics, along with the introduction of recombinant DNA technology, have expanded the applications of pharmacology to encompass a range of disciplines. Biomedical researchers, protein specialists, and molecular biologists are all involved in the development and delivery of novel drugs. Therefore, students in a variety of life sciences now require grounding in pharmacology. Adding much new material, Introduction to Pharmacology, Third Edition familiarizes students with the curative action of specific drugs, along with current research and the multifaceted role of pharmacology in society. New to the third edition- * Chapters on smooth muscle pharmacology covering gastrointestinal and pulmonary pharmacology * Pharmacology advances at the molecular level * The historical background of the Watson Crick model of DNA * Cutting edge topics such as RNA interference and dopamine signaling The text begins with a discussion on the absorption, distribution, metabolism, and elimination of drugs. Much emphasis is placed on pharmacokinetic aspects: how drugs produce an effect and the quantification of these effects for comparative purposes. Also the text describes substance abuse pharmacology and the evolution of drug laws. Several chapters deal with the development of drugs and challenges faced in drug discovery. Identifying both the therapeutic and toxicological aspects of drug use, Introduction to Pharmacology employs contemporary examples to help students become familiar with drug development and treatment, as well as possible adverse affects, and the impact of drug research and use on society today and into the future.

The first edition of Introduction to Pharmacology has over recent years become a highly influential text among students wishing to acquire a knowledge of pharmacology without having to refer to the larger, more detailed, traditional pharmacology volumes. This revised and updated second edition contains significant new material to bring the reader up-to-date with the latest practices and principles in pharmacology.Exploring the basic principles in both the therapeutic and toxicological aspects of drug use, the book employs contemporary examples of medication, supplemented with an increased number of accurate and easy-to-interpret figures and diagrams. Additionally, Introduction to Pharmacology presents the important concept of understanding the limitations surrounding the drugs that cure, replace physiological inadequacies, or treat symptoms, and which have led to the system of drug classification. The broad scope of the book also encompasses the role of the FDA, drugs in sport, and the use of animals for drug experimentation. A clear and accessible book, Introduction to Pharmacology builds on the strengths of the first edition and is an invaluable reference for all students interested in this subject.

This book derives from a popular three-day ACS short course, "Pharmacology for Chemists", which the author has taught for 20 years. Pharmacology is the scientific study of drugs, including their composition, uses, and physiological effects. While not traditionally taught to organic and medicinal chemists, an understanding of pharmacology is becoming essential for maintaining the dynamic role of the drug development researcher. Pharmacologic texts are usually organized around the practice of clinical medicine or classes of drugs; this book uses chemistry as its foundation.
