Pharmacogenomics: From Discovery to Clinical Implementation is a complete reference aimed at building a solid foundation of the key concepts in this fast-moving knowledge area.
The editors lined up a group of worldwide experts to contribute to the book. Following a consistent chapter structure, the authors cover the foundational aspects of pharmacogenomics in the first four chapters of the book that include basic concepts, drug metabolism, drug discovery and development, and testing. The second part of the book is dedicated to detailed studies of key health conditions and the potential therapeutic applications of pharmacogenomics. Diseases covered include diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, psychiatric disease, cancer, pulmonary and respiratory diseases, viral diseases, gastroenterology, autoimmune diseases, immunosuppressants, and, finally, an overview of computational resources.
Pharmacogenomics: From Discovery to Clinical Implementation is the perfect resource for pharmaceutical science graduate students to learn the key concepts of the area. Researchers and graduate students in the related fields of Genetics, pharmacoepidemiology, molecular biology, and medicinal chemistry will also benefit of the structured approach of the book.
