Overview

Here is an all-encompassing reference tailored to the needs of research managers, chemists and biologists, clinical scientists, and executives in the pharmacology and biotechnology industry.  No other resource focuses on drug discovery and pharmaceutical research from this unique perspective combining scientific and business aspects of today's biotechnology.

Within every major therapeutic area, the Wiley Handbook of Current and Emerging Drug Therapies provides a general overview of the etiology and pathophsiology of the important disease indications. Then, you'll find a comprehensive analysis of currently approved drugs targeting these diseases, with information on mechanism of action, efficacy, side effects and future prospects. You'll also find product-by-product analyses of drugs currently in development, including mechanism of action, formulations, and detailed information on the status of clinical trials.

This reference also includes authoritative essays on key topics:

  • The Drug Discovery Process—Overview
    [Dr. Hugo Kubinyi of the University of Heidelberg]
  • Clinical Trials—Overview
    [Dr. Curtis L. Meinert, Director of the Johns Hopkins Center for Clinical Trials]

and detailed, market-oriented analyses of:

  • Emerging Technologies and Business Opportunities
  • Global Markets and National Policy
  • New Opportunities in Drug Discovery and Pipeline Development

What People Are Saying

From the Publisher

We find the "Wiley Handbook of Current and Emerging Drug Therapies" a very useful resource in our reference collection. It provides our users with a good overview of the drug development process. And, also looks at therapeutic area trends in research and development of the top 20 pharmaceutical companies. Our users appreciate having a single source for acquiring information for both the analysis of currently approved drugs and those drugs emerging for the different therapeutic areas. The thorough bibliographies at the end of each section are also very helpful. In addition, the separate "subject" and "drug and molecular name" indexes make the handbook very easy to use.

— Sondra Pfeiffer, Librarian, University of Alabama at Birmingham
