Overview

Pharmacogenomics promises to revolutionize medicine by enabling the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of diseases at the genome level. While a substantial amount of public and private research focuses on new pharmacogenomic applications, notably less attention has been directed to the ethical, legal, and social implications of "individualized medicine." Mark Rothstein's timely anthology reduces that scholarship deficit, presenting a multidisciplinary analysis of the scientific, clinical, economic, ethical, social, and legal implications of pharmacogenomics. Assembling an all-star cast of bioethical scholars, medical researchers, legal scholars, and social scientists, Mark Rothstein examines the promises, questions, and concerns these revolutionary therapies implicitly present. Biotechnology and pharmaceutical researchers and regulators, health care professionals and students, and academics and policymakers will find Pharmacogenomics to be a valuable resource.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The discussion of societal, legal, economic, and governmental issues go well beyond the sphere of pharmogenomics." (American Journal for Medical Genetics, September 1, 2005)

"...indispensable guide...as timely as it can be...an impressive multidisciplinary analysis...a 'must read'..." (Bioethics, Vol 18(4), August 2004)

"…Pharmacogenomics is highly recommended for anyone with an interest in the field…. Given this book's uniqueness…libraries at any institution teaching pharmcogenomics should have a copy of this book.” (Journal of Pharmacy Technology, Sept/Oct 2003)

"...well written, clear, and informative...a restrained sense of excitement...permeates throughout...clearly...a solid contribution to the discourse." (Nature Biotechnology, May 1, 2003)

"...chapters offer fascinating glimpses into fields that may not be familiar to geneticists, genomicists, or clinicians...they will be informative...and provide a reminder that many people outside this field are going to be paying a lot of attention as discoveries...are reported." (New England Journal of Medicine, July 24, 2003)

"...an excellent summary of aspects of phamacogenomics...a solid reference for those working in the field and a unique textbook for those new to the subject area." (Clinical Chemistry, Vol. 49, No. 9)

"...a welcome addition to the growing body of literature...highly recommended for anyone with an interest in the field...should be required reading for anyone conducting pharmacogenomic research and for all clinicians who use pharmacogenomics..." (Journal of Pharmacy Technology, Vol. 19September/October 2003)

"...addresses the ethical, legal, and social implications of the individualized medicine that pharmacogenomics stands to create..." (Genetic Engineering News, Vol 23(14), 2003)
