95 Hardcover RS403 This work brings together pharmacochemistry researchers who are working on rational drug design to highlight the variety of approaches being employed in this field, such as approaches that start by considering molecular mechanisms of drug action, approaches that focus on the metabolizing enzyme action occurring in the structure of a drug molecule, and approaches that start from the pathobiochemistry and pathophysiology of target diseases.
The combination of the TOGA robotic assay and integrated TOGA Portal informatics suite allows the researcher, at the desktop, to track and understand the development of disease, explore mechanisms of drug action, predict toxicity and profile patient populations.
Cellular mechanisms of drug action and response are discussed with numerous examples of widely used drugs provided.
The topics include using genome-wide association studies to identify genes important in serious adverse drug reactions, the expression and function of organic anion transporting polypeptides in normal tissues and in cancer, insights into adherence to medications arising from studies on the unreliable link between prescribed and actual drug dosing histories, emerging themes and therapeutic prospects for anti-infective peptides, and network analysis to identify multiscale mechanisms of drug action.
Volume One describes the disease's molecular biology and biochemistry in 17 chapters, with topics that include studies of the genomics, proteomics, and transcriptomics of the complex; mechanisms of drug action, resistance and tolerance; and the virulence and persistence mechanisms.
