Book Description :

Provides a timely update to a key textbook on human drug metabolism The third edition of this comprehensive book covers basic concepts of teaching drug metabolism, starting from extreme clinical consequences to systems and mechanisms and toxicity. It provides an invaluable introduction to the core areas of pharmacology and examines recent progress and advances in this fast moving field and its clinical impact. Human Drug Metabolism, 3rd Edition begins by covering basic concepts such as clearance and bioavailability, and looks at the evolution of biotransformation, and how drugs fit into this carefully managed biological environment. More information on how cytochrome P450s function and how they are modulated at the sub-cellular level is offered in this new edition. The book also introduces helpful concepts for those struggling with the relationship of pharmacology to physiology, as well as the inhibition of biotransformational activity. Recent advances in knowledge of a number of other metabolizing systems are covered, including glucuronidation and sulphation, along with the main drug transporters. Also, themes from the last edition are developed in an attempt to chart the progress of personalized medicine from concepts towards practical inclusion in routine therapeutics. The last chapter focuses on our understanding of how and why drugs injure us, both in predictable and unpredictable ways. Appendix A highlights some practical approaches employed in both drug metabolism research and drug discovery, whilst Appendix B outlines the metabolism of some drugs of abuse. Appendix C advises on formal examination preparation and Appendix D lists some substrates, inducers and inhibitors of the major human cytochrome P450s. Fully updated to reflect advances in the scientific field of drug metabolism and its clinical impact Reflects refinements in the author's teaching method, particularly with respect to helping students understand biological systems and how they operate Illustrates the growing relationship between drug metabolism and personalized medicine Includes recent developments in drug discovery, genomics, and stem cell technologies Human Drug Metabolism, 3rd Edition is an excellent book for advanced undergraduate and graduate students in molecular biology, biochemistry, pharmacology, pharmacy, and toxicology. It will also appeal to professionals interested in an introduction to this field, or who want to learn more about these bench-to-bedside topics to apply it to their practice.

Book Description :

Carrie Fisher, also known as Princess Leia from Star Wars, had been abusing cocaine and other pharmaceuticals for many years, so when it was announced that she died from sleep apnea, I was skeptical. A more plausible explanation would have been that she died from a drug overdose. A review of the medical examiner's report revealed that the Fisher family refused to give permission for an autopsy and toxicology tests to be done. Constrained by these limitations, the coroner labeled the manner of death "undetermined". FORENSICS: The Science behind the Deaths of Famous People is an analysis and description of how coroners determine the cause and manner of death. An investigation of twenty-three deaths of famous people was conducted based on a review of publicly available autopsy and toxicology reports, as well as published scientific and lay articles. Drug use was implicated in 70 percent of the deaths. Four celebrity deaths were the result of suicide or homicide. Four others were from natural causes.

Book Description :

Pharmacogenomics is the basis of personalized medicine, which is said to be the medicine of the future. Understanding genetic variation in drug and alcohol response is vital for professionals working in rehabilitation programs. The same principles that are applicable for therapeutic drugs are also applicable for drugs of abuse. Pharmacogenomics can supplement traditional therapeutic drug monitoring, potentially predicting correct dosage before initiation of the drug therapy. Applying these principles to testing and treatment, Pharmacogenomics of Alcohol and Drugs of Abuse discusses the role of the clinical laboratory in the practice of personalized medicine. With contributions from a range of experts, the book presents the genetic aspects of alcohol metabolism and other drugs including marijuana, cocaine, and amphetamines. In addition to basic pharmacogenomic aspects, the book addresses slate and trait markers of drugs of abuse so readers can consider setting appropriate biomarker tests in their clinical laboratory.

"There is an apocryphal story of an eminent neurology professor who was asked to provide a differential diagnosis. He allegedly quipped: "I can't give you a differential diagnosis. If you wish I will give you a list of wrong diagnoses followed by the right diagnosis." Sadly, this sort of arrogance pervaded our field, particularly in the era before there were accurate diagnostic methods and effective treatments of neurological diseases. Fortunately, this sort of pomposity is now relegated to the past and remains only as an antique reminder of a type of hubris that precluded discovery and progress in diseases of the nervous system"--
