Medicinal Chemistry

A Molecular and Biochemical Approach

Third Edition

Thomas Nogrady and Donald F. Weaver

Fully updated, the third edition of this popular textbook remains comprehensive, authoritative and readable. Taking a receptor-based, target-centered approach, it presents the concepts central to the study of drug action in a logical, mechanistic way grounded on molecular and biochemical principles. The changes in this edition have been many and varied, including a new chapter on the immune system, updated discussions of molecular modeling techniques, and new clinical-molecular interface sections that facilitate understanding of the treatment of human disease at a molecular level. Students of pharmacy, chemistry and pharmacology, as well as researchers interested in a better understanding of drug design, will continue to find this book an invaluable resource.
