Overview

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

A Doody's Core Title ESSENTIAL PURCHASE!

4 STAR DOODY'S REVIEW!
"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.

Features


•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

Appropriate for: Medical Students, Pharmacy Students.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Thomas L. Pazdernik, PhD (University of Kansas Medical Center)
Description: This edition marks the 25th year that Basic and Clinical Pharmacology by Katzung has been available for teaching students pharmacology. This remains the gold standard of useable texts for teaching pharmacology to medical students. In my opinion, this is the best edition.
Purpose: The goals are to provide a complete, authoritative, current, and readable pharmacology textbook for students in health sciences. Proof of the book's achievement of these goals is its widespread use as a required book for pharmacology courses around the world.
Audience: This book has been, and will continue to be, used by thousands of medical, pharmacology, podiatry, nursing, and other health professions students. It is also valuable for residents and practicing physicians.
Features: All the typical topics in a survey pharmacology course are covered and the book is designed to be useful in traditional pharmacology courses as well as integrated organ system curricula. The general format of the book has not changed but the font clarity and figure colorations are far superior to earlier editions. There have been major revisions of the chapters on prostaglandins, nitric oxide, anti-inflammatory drugs, hypothalamic and pituitary hormones, antidiabetic drugs, and immunopharmacology. Moreover, descriptions of new drugs released through August 2006 are included, as well as major advances in science such as the use of knockout and knockin mice as research tools and advances in receptors and transporters.
Assessment: I continue to use this book as a required resource for all courses that I teach to medical and allied health professions students. Not only does this serve as an authoritative and readable text, but there are also many related resources (Katzung & Trevor's Pharmacology Examination and Board Review, 7th edition, Trevor et al. (McGraw-Hill, 2004) and USMLE Road Map: Pharmacology, Katzung et al. (McGraw-Hill, 2003)) that can be used as companions for students to focus on high yield material needed for course examinations and USMLE Step Examinations. 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.
