Book Description :

Most medicinal chemists working in the pharmaceutical industry are organic synthetic chemists with little or no background in medicinal chemistry. These chemists must acquire a good knowledge of medicinal chemistry during their first years in the pharmaceutical/drug discovery industry. This book aims to be their practical handbook - a complete guide to the drug discovery process. The book reviews practical aspects of Medicinal Chemistry, emphasising the daily problems met by the medicinal chemist when dealing with lead discovery/identification methodologies, with structure-activity relationship studies aimed to scale up potency and target selectivity, and when optimising pharmacokinetic and pharmaceutical properties by means of ultimate chemical modifications. This is the second edition of The Practice of Medicinal Chemistry, the first edition being published in February 1996. The new edition is thoroughly revised, with around 30% new material, and refocussed to reflect the recent developments in genomics, proteomics, high throughput screening of compounds and drug solubilisation. An effort has been made to remove the overlap that exists in the previous edition and four new chapters have been introduced. * Written by experts in the field * The first edition of The Practice of Medicinal Chemistry, published in 1996, was nicknamed 'The Bible' by medicinal chemists. * The only available book dealing with the practical aspects of medicinal chemistry, from conception of the molecules through to the production of drugs * An essential practical handbook for the medicinal chemist, working in the pharmaceutical industry, with little or no background in medicinal chemistry-a complete guide to the drug discovery process.

Book Description :

This book collects in one single volume, the practical aspects of Medicinal Chemistry, seen from a chemical point of view, including the wealth of information which chemists accumulate over a career, but generally is never organized and presented in a coherent form in print. Emphasis is given to how medicinal chemists conduct their search for, and design of, new drug entities. In contrast to other books on the market, it focuses on the chemistry, rather than pharmacological concepts or description of the various therapeutic classes of drugs. It should become a standard reference on the tools available to medicinal chemists when designing new drugs. Key Features * These aspects are covered by: * Specific chapters devoted to the discovery of new lead compounds, including combinatorial chemistry * Clearly written chapters on modern topics such as stereochemical aspects of drug action, the use of X-ray structures of receptors and enzymes in drug discovery, and the contribution of molecular biology to drug discovery * Guidelines and operational strategems allowing identification of the portions of the molecule which are important for potency * The particular emphasis given to the three-dimensional aspects of the drug-receptor interactions, to the design of peptidomimetic drugs and to the control of the agonist-antagonist transition * Chemical solutions to solubility and to formulation problems These sections cover perhaps the most neglected areas in medicinal chemistry books * Development of new drugs: legal and economic aspects, constitutes another important area in which chemists are almost wholly self taught following their entry into industry
