An introduction to each drug is provided, as well as background to the biology, pharmacology, pharmacokinetics, and drug metabolism, followed by a detailed account of the drug synthesis.* Edited by prominent scientists working in drug discovery for Pfizer* Meets the needs of a growing community of researchers in pharmaceutical R&D* Provides a useful guide for practicing pharmaceutical scientists as well as a text for medicinal chemistry students* An excellent follow-up to the very successful first book by these editors, Contemporary Drug Synthesis, but with all new therapeutic categories and drugs discussed.
