Drug Discovery and Development: Technology in Transition
H. P. Rang, Daniel Vasella
Churchill Livingstone / Elsevier, 2006 - Medical - 346 pages
This title is directed primarily toward health care professionals outside the United States. An ideal introduction to the pharmaceutical industry, this book describes the process of bringing a new drug to the marketplace. It explains why, although thousands of compounds show initial promise, only a small handful will be developed for human clinical trials and perhaps only one will become an approved drug. Describing the huge complexities involved, it shows how new molecular understanding and techniques can make the process more targeted and successful.
