  • Much-praised writing style makes the text ideal for those new to the subject.
  • Frequent boxes and case studies help students to link the underlying theory to its pharmaceutical application.
  • Numerous questions and activities both throughout the book and on the accompanying website help students hone their problem solving skills.
  • Well developed pedagogy - including frequent key point sections, a full glossary of terms, and links to material on the accompanying Online Resource Centre - supports students in their learning.

New to this Edition:

  • New chapter on cardiovascular drugs, provides a comprehensive discussion of this important group of drugs.
  • New case studies cover the development of Aliskiren, Factor Xa inhibitors, and new drugs used to treat Hepatitis C.
  • Expanded coverage of molecular biology topics such as signalling pathways provide extra support for those students who haven't previously encountered these topics.
  • New molecular modelling problems in Chem3D on the Online Resource Centre allows students to practice their molecular modelling skills using freely available software.
