Concepts in Pharmacogenomics
The new science of pharmacogenomics aims to understand how an individual's genetic composition affects his/her response to a specific drug or class of drugs. By studying such characteristics as drug metabolizing enzymes, drug transporter activity, and receptor sensitivity, a pharmacist is better able to prescribe the right drug the first time. If you are pharmacist, resident, or student curious about this new field, start with Concepts in Pharmacogenomics. In this practical guide, you will find an overview of the science behind pharmacogenomics, followed by detailed chapters related to its clinical application. Features include: * case studies in each chapter * clinical pearls * illustrations of key concepts * figures, diagrams, and flow charts for visual learners * key points summarized * applications to cardiovascular disease, oncology/hematology, cns & psychiatric disorders, infectious diseases, respiratory disease, and toxicogenomics.
