The current science of pharmacology — and its clinical applications — at your fingertips


"This remains the gold standard of useable texts for teaching pharmacology to medical students. In my opinion, this is the best edition.... continue to use this book as a required resource for all courses that I teach to medical and allied health professions students....I also use this as the major resource for an elective offering in Advanced Pharmacology for third and fourth year medical students. This book continues to be the standard that all other pharmacology books attempt to emulate."—Doody's Review Service

Now in its 25th year of publication, Basic and Clinical Pharmacology is the most up-to-date and complete pharmacology textbook available. Through nine previous editions it has set the standard for concise and easy-to-read, yet comprehensive coverage of pharmacology. The text's integration of basic with clinical science makes it well suited for an integrated organ-system-based curricula as well as the more traditional curricula.


•In-depth coverage of key pharmacology topics, from basic principles to pharmacologic considerations for autonomic, cardiovascular-renal, smooth muscle, CNS, endocrine, antimicrobial, and chemotherapeutic and immunotherapeutic drugs
•Updated with dozens of new, recently approved drugs, including monoclonal antibodies
•Detailed review of the mechanism of action and toxicities of traditional and newer drugs
•Critical discussions of treatment strategies and recommendeddrugs for all major diseases
•Valuable section on toxicology that provides an introduction to occupational and environmental toxicology; heavy metal intoxication and chelators; and management of the poisoned patient
•Ready-to-use, study-enhancing features, including special interest boxes, lists of common preparations, and dosage information
•Unique evidence-based chapters on abused drugs; special aspects of perinatal, pediatric, and geriatric pharmacology; and over-the-counter drugs, herbal medications, and nutritional supplements
•More than 500 concept-clarifying illustrations and tables throughout
