Now in its third edition, Principles of Pharmacology presents content in a conceptual framework that maximizes understanding and retention and minimizes rote memorization. It takes students "beyond the disease" and deep into physiologic, biochemical, and pathophysiologic systems where drugs activate or inhibit these systems by interacting with molecular and cellular targets. This unique approach ensures understanding of the mechanisms of drug actions on the body, and ultimately, in treating the human patient. Ideal for introductory pharmacology courses that emphasize critical thinking, molecular understanding, systems-based integration, and clinical preparation, the text: Features chapter-opening clinical cases and questions to establish a context for the discussion and the answers that follow Presents signature drug summary tables, updated and organized by mechanism of action, with information on clinical applications, adverse effects, contraindications, and therapeutic considerations Incorporates NEW full-color illustrations throughout, suiting the needs of visual learners and more effectively presenting concepts covered in the narrative Integrates timely content, including recently approved drugs as well as current research on drug mechanisms of action Delivers course and review material appropriate for students through a uniquely collaborative authorship consisting of medical students, residents, and faculty

Highly regarded by both students and instructors, Principles of Pharmacology: The Pathophysiologic Basis of Drug Therapy, 4th Edition, offers an integrated mechanism-based and systems-based approach to contemporary pharmacology and drug development. An easy-to-follow format helps first- and second-year students grasp challenging concepts quickly and efficiently. Each section presents the pharmacology of a physiologic or biochemical system, followed by the pharmacology of a particular aspect of that system; a clinical vignette; a discussion of the biochemistry, physiology, and pathophysiology of the system; and the drugs and drug classes that activate or inhibit the system by interacting with specific molecular and cellular targets. Clear, concise illustrations highlight key points, and drug summary tables offer quick access to essential information. The Fourth Edition features: Comprehensive updates to all chapters, including recently approved drugs Nearly 40 popular and practical Drug Summary Tables with state-of-the-art information on clinical applications, serious and common adverse effects, contraindications, and therapeutic considerations A new chapter on drug transporters, and extensively revised information on drug-receptor interactions, pharmacodynamics, drug toxicity, and pharmacogenomics Key changes to Section 1: Fundamental Principles of Pharmacology, which now provides a comprehensive framework for material in all subsequent chapters.[MH1] Hundreds of meticulously updated and colorized illustrations, including many that are new or substantially modified to highlight new understanding of physiologic, pathophysiologic, and pharmacologic mechanisms

With a focus on functional relationships between drugs and their targets, this book covers basic and general pharmacology, from a cellular and molecular perspective, with particular attention to the mechanisms of drug action – the fundamental basis for proper clinical use- without neglecting clinical application, toxicology and pharmacokinetics. • Covers cell and molecular pharmacology, bringing together current research on regulation of drug targets, at a level appropriate for advanced undergrad and graduate students • Discusses the relevance of pharmacokinetics and drug development for the clinical application of drugs • Presents material from the perspective of drug targets and interaction, the theoretical basis of drug action analysis, and drug properties • Focuses on structure-function relationships of drug targets – informing about their biochemical and physiologic functions and experimental and clinical pathways for drug discovery and development • Has a companion website that offers a host of resources: short additional chapters about methodology, topics at the forefront of research, all figures and tables from the book, and Power Point slides

Grasp key concepts quickly with the visual, concise, and clinical approach to physiology found in this second edition of Netter’s Essential Physiology. Lucid prose combines with classic Netter art, clinical correlations, "light bulb" side notes, end-of-chapter questions, and brand-new videos to ensure a complete understanding of these complex concepts. Logically written and highly readable, it's ideal for a basic understanding of physiology, as an overview of the subject, or as a supplement to lectures. You may also be interested in: Netter’s Physiology Flash Cards: ISBN 978-0-323-35954-2, the companion flash cards to this book. Beautifully clear drawings and diagrams from the Netter collection illustrate key concepts and further your visual understanding of the subject. Self-assessment review questions at the end of each chapter serve to expedite study. A brand-new chapter on blood provides increased coverage of immunology. Additional "light bulb" boxes highlight interesting memorable details or examples providing enhanced context. A greater number of clinical correlations integrate pathophysiology into the content.
