Pharmacology and Therapeutics: Principles to Practice uses pharmacology principles to integrate the most recent advances in basic biomedical sciences into deciding the best medications to treat illness and preserve health.
Edited by Scott A. Waldman, MD, PhD, FCP and Andre Terzic, MD, PhD, this brand-new multimedia resource fills a critical need for a more clinically focused, user-friendly pharmacology reference. Get everything you need to know about all of today's drugs in a coherent, easy-to-use format - from the underlying science through innovation, translation, regulation, and clinical implementation. Evidence-based therapeutic guidelines facilitate decision making; and coverage of pharmacogenetics and pharmacogenomics, regenerative pharmacology, stem cell therapies, and the emerging field of individualized medicine keeps you at the forefront of the latest developments. Reference is a snap due to the book's logical, user-friendly format.
Features a logical organization (by body system, rather than by drug class) and an exceptionally user-friendly format so you can find the clinically actionable information you need more easily.
Offers evidence-based therapeutic guidelines to help you make sound clinical decisions.
Includes cutting-edge coverage of pharmacogenetics and pharmacogenomics, regenerative pharmacology, stem cell therapies, and the emerging field of individualized medicine across medical specialties.
Examines nutrition, complementary and alternative medicines, neutraceuticals, and dietary supplements, allowing you to effectively counsel patients and avoid dangerous drug interactions.

"This is an outstanding textbook that connects the recent advances in basic principles with the practice of medicine. It is a must-have book for those involved in drug discovery, translational research, and the teaching of evidence-based medicine." Thomas L. Pazdernik, PhD (University of Kansas Medical Center)
"This is an outstanding textbook that connects the recent advances in basic principles with the practice of medicine...a must-have book for those involved in drug discovery, translational research, and the teaching of evidence-based medicine, so practitioners can make sound clinical decisions from evidence-based therapeutic guidelines." DOODY'S REVIEW, 5 Stars *****
"The narrative is so easy to read that it makes extracting the information from the pages almost effortless. In addition, every chapter is supported by a good selection of references to original research and review articles, both old and new, and the whole text is available online allowing it to be accessed wherever there is internet connection." British Journal of Hospital Medicine, June 2009, Vol 70, No 6
"I have a confession to make and that is I have always liked the discipline of Clinical Pharmacology and to this very day, I still like it. It is the cornerstone of therapeutics and it is essential that all prescribers truly understand the therapeutic principles of the drug that they have prescribed. It lives up to it's title and is a superb, bang up to date review of this fast moving discipline. It is very clinically orientated but there is a good spread of background science which adds interest and understanding to the purely clinical aspects." Pharmacology and Therapeutics April 2010
" This textbook, however, deviates from the routine old-fashioned textbook of pharmacology , moving into the new spectrum of more 'sellable pharmacology' and is presented in a palatable style...Overall this book is a useful addition to the rapidly emerging armamentarium of 'new look' pharmacology and therapeutics textbooks. I would definitely use both the text and the online versions and recommend them to others."
Sultan Qaboos University Medical Journal, April 2010
It lives up to it's title and is a superb, bang up to date review of this fast moving discipline. It is very clinically orientated but there is a good spread of background science which adds interest and understanding to the purely clinical aspects...If you want to learn more about clinical pharmacology and therapeutics in deep detail but still want it to be relevant to your clinical practice then this could be what you are looking for. It is an impressive offering. Univadis, April 2010
