Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Judith Klevan, BSPharm (Jeanes Hospital)
Description: With descriptions of the regulatory agencies, pharmacology, study analysis processes, drug safety, marketing, and therapeutics, this book details the overall drug development process.
Purpose: The authors intend this as a broad overview of all aspects of pharmaceutical medicine, a worthy goal as it is necessary for a diverse group of professionals to understand the drug development process.
Audience: The audience includes those working in the pharmaceutical industry or allied fields, those in formal training programs in pharmaceutical medicine, and other professionals involved in regulatory affairs, clinical research, or the marketing of medicines.
Features: This pocket-sized reference discusses the broad principles of the pharmaceutical manufacturing industry, such as drug discovery, regulatory agencies, medication regulation, clinical development of medications, statistics, drug safety, and healthcare marketing. It includes a limited number of tables, charts, and graphs, as well as an extensive list of abbreviations in the beginning of the book. It would benefit from more quick reference charts and tables; the font is small and hard to read. Overall, the presentation is dry.
Assessment: This would be a useful reference for those in the pharmaceutical manufacturing or drug company environment who need an update on various processes of development outside of their own department. There are no bibliography or reference sections, although there are suggestions for reading at the end of each chapter.
