This publication is the first of a series of annual reference works covering drugs that have received regulatory approval during the previous year. This first volume, New Drugs 2001 contains descriptions of the more than 100 new drugs from 30 therapeutic categories that have been approved (or approved for major new uses) in the last several years. A brief introduction to each class of drugs provides highlights of recent developments in drug development and marketing for the corresponding disease category. The chemical, physical and pharmacological properties of each agent are recorded along with the chemical structure, registry numbers and an exhaustive listing of product trade names and manufacturers. Each record includes useful patent information and a history of the agent's regulatory approval. A comprehensive Subject and Synonym Index along with CAS Registry Number and EINECS number indexes provide useful entry points to the data. An extensive Manufacturer Directory provides convenient contact information.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This guide, the first in an annual series, describes all new drugs approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) since January 1, 2000. Each entry includes the drug's synonyms and trade names, the CAS Registry Number, physical properties, manufacturer, and patent and regulatory information. However, there is no information on the drug's therapeutic use. In pre-Internet days, this book would have been useful, but now it is unlikely that most academic and medical libraries will have $90 to buy a reference for information easily found for free online on the FDA's web site and other resources. Details on drug properties can be found quickly in the Merck Index or in Drugs: Synonyms & Properties, also edited by Milne, although the newest pharmaceuticals will not be included. Manufacturer information can be found in almost all drug guides, including the Physicians Desk ReferenceR, and patent information is available from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office's Web Patent Database. Still, this volume does offer a concise summary of new developments in drug research. And having all of a substance's chemical information in one place can save a researcher time, making this book useful for corporate libraries that can afford it.-Natalie Kupferberg, Biological Sciences/Pharmacy Lib., Ohio State Univ. Lib., Columbus Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
From The Critics
Initiating a new annual series, this volume provides information for physicians and drug designers concerning drugs that were newly approved (or approved for major new uses) in the years named in the title (2000 and 2001). Identified here are 50 drugs recently approved as "New Molecular Entities" by the US Food and Drug Administration, and an additional 129 drugs relevant to these new NMEs. The introduction briefly outlines some of the social and scientific context relevant to the development and marketing of each type of drug. Entries are organized according to 30 therapeutic classes (e.g. antiasthma agents, antifungals, cardioactive agents, sedatives, vasodilators, etc.) and include (as available) chemical, physical and pharmacological properties, chemical structures, trade and generic names, patent information and regulatory approval history, CAS and EINECS numbers, and manufacturer and supplier information.
