Overview

Until several decades ago, few studies were conducted on the differences among individual responses to pharmacologic agents. Then, in the 1950s and 1960s, enzyme induction was discovered, and it became apparent that the intake of certain foods or drugs could adaptively modify drug metabolism and, therefore, drug response. Now researchers are beginning to realize how both adaptive and genetic forces may cause pharmacological distinctions among human populations once separated by distance or geographical boundaries.

Psychopharmacology and Psychobiology of Ethnicity provides a unique overview of how ethnically defined populations respond to psychoactive drugs. Its renowned contributors review and summarize our current knowledge of ethnic differences and similarities among patients in response to psychotropic drugs.

American Psychiatric Publishing

Summarizes current knowledge about how adaptive & genetic forces may cause pharmacological distinctions among people.

The Journal of Nervous and Mental Disease
This is must reading for clinicians, teachers, and researchers with particular interest and skill in psychopharmacology, cultural psychiatry, neuropsychiatry, and biological psychiatry.
Booknews
With the discovery of enzyme induction, and the development of pharmacogenetics, more understanding is being gained of the varied responses that ethnically defined populations may have to drugs, in this case psychoactive drugs. Contributors review current knowledge, and discuss as well cultural factors, the differing responses of population to specific psychotropic drugs, and the interpretation of "biological markers."
