The most up-to-date, comprehensive, and authoritative pharmacology text in health medicine

Enhanced by more than three hundred illustrations -- many in full color

Organized to reflect the syllabi in many pharmacology courses and in integrated curricula, Basic & Clinical Pharmacology, 12e covers the important concepts students need to know about the science of pharmacology and its application to clinical practice. Selection of the subject matter and order of its presentation are based on the authors’ many years experience in teaching this material to thousands of medical, pharmacy, dental, podiatry, nursing, and other health science students.

To be as clinically relevant as possible, the book includes sections that specifically address the clinical choice and use of drugs in patients and the monitoring of their effects, and case studies that introduce clinical problems in many chapters. Presented in full color and enhanced by more than three hundred illustrations, Basic & Clinical Pharmacology features numerous summary tables and diagrams that encapsulate important information.

  • Basic principles
  • Autonomic drugs
  • Cardiovascular-renal drugs
  • Drugs with important actions on smooth muscles
  • Central nervous system drugs
  • Drugs used to treat anemias, clotting disorders, hyperlipidemia, and inflammation and gout
  • Endocrine drugs
  • Chemotherapeutic and immunologic drugs
  • Toxicology
  • Special subjects (perinatal, geriatric, and dermatologic pharmacology)

Also in this edition:
