Second Edition

Wendell Weber

Genes are important modifiers of the human response to drugs, hormones, and toxins. Medical patients and healthy individuals alike display significant differences in response and suffer adverse effects as a result of exposure to many therapeutic agents and occupational chemicals. In this substantially revised second edition, highly regarded authority Wendell Weber brings together laboratory methods and epidemiologic studies in defining the role of heredity in human drug response. The book is divided into two major sections, one covering pharmacognetic concepts and the second the application of those concepts.
