SM02-463 Illustrated Handbook of Toxicology.
  / 9781680946727/ Price:US$ 180.00
Book Cover Toxicology has matured since it was defined as the ?science of poisons?. Modern toxicology is no longer anthropocentric but takes on different views at various biological systems, including ecosystems. Each will interact specifically when exposed to defined chemical agents, including drugs. Toxicity is no longer a specific property of drugs and chemicals but an operative term to describe the adverse outcome of a specific drugs-host interaction. Newer developments in toxicology have focused on the host. The key to understanding is in the host proteins that interact with the drug and mediate the cellular response. Hence, the proteom, i.e. the complete set of proteins of a cell, an individual or a species, determines how an exposed biological system may interact with the manifold of different xenobiotics. Structure-activity studies try to find out useful predictive parameters for risk and toxicity assessment. This comprehensive text devises learning strategies that build on the fundamentals to aid readers in toxicology. Among the topics deliberated are the potential hostile effects of drugs, pesticides, food additives and industrial chemicals.

  Valverde, J. L./ 9781607506027/ Price:EUR 95.00
Innovative Medicine: The Science and the Regulatory Framework Volume 12 Pharmaceuticals Policy and Law Edited by: J.L. Valverde and A. Ceci July 2010, 180 pp., softcover ISBN: 978-1-60750-602-7 NEW Price: US$138 / £á95 Scientific progress is providing new opportunities to respond to medical needs as yet unmet, in particular with regard to novel and more efficacious treatments for neglected pathologies such as genetic and rare disorders. In Europe, developments have been delayed in the past because of regional differences in the regulatory environment and the consequent market fragmentation this causes. Not only advances in treatment have dramatically outpaced changes in the financial and social structure of healthcare, but medicines that tackle much less common pathologies are often not developed due to the risks involved with regard to investment return. Stimulated by the intensive debate surrounding these disparities, this book (which is a collection of presentations from the II Foresight Training Course organised by the Gianni Benzi Foundation) examines the issues of developing innovative medicines in Europe. It describes the initiatives being implemented by EMA to facilitate the activities in this complex environment, such as the Advanced Therapies Initiative, the Orphan Drugs Initiative, and includes presentations covering other topics such as the promotion of innovation at a national level, the role of pharmaceutical companies in health research and the balance between treatment opportunities and budget control. Thanks to the contribution of experts and regulatory operators from the Task Force in Europe for Drug Development for Young (TEDDY), the book also presents the most recent advances in Paediatric Medicines. Of interest to medical professionals, policy makers, regulators and those working in pharmaceutical research, this book provides a valuable overview of the situation with regard to the development of innovative medicines, in Europe and beyond.

SM02-374 Towards Drugs of the Future: Key Issues in Lead Finding and Lead Optimization.
  Kruse, C. G./ 9781586039493/ Price:EUR 110.00
The scope of this book is that the pharmaceutical industry must change the way it operates. The editors of this book feel that the current business model is economically unsustainable and incapable to meet expectations of modern society. The number of novel medications in the global industry pipeline is insufficient to suffice demand of the markets, the financial performance of several companies is declining, sales and marketing costs are rising, regulatory constraints are increasingly challenging and overall reputation of industry is tarnishing. Unmet medical needs must be better addressed and tangible benefits need to be exposed in order to be rewarded by healthcare payers. In addition, the focus is shifting from simple treatment of the ill to preventative measures and health management. This volume addresses newest development in synthetic and medicinal chemistry with the emphasis on global challenges. One of the goals is to ensure that new chemistry develops novel technologies in which system biology approach or target approach is computer simulated, testing is performed in silico on rat or human digital models and synthesis of molecules is restricted to intelligent synthesis of treatments based on simulations. Implementation of such new technologies requires the pharmaceutical industry to rethink and adopt the current business model in order to contribute value to the healthcare systems of the future.

SM02-356 Key Issues in Pharmaceuticals Law.
  Valverde, J. L./ 9781586038403/ Price:EUR 60.00
The focus of Key Issues in Pharmaceuticals Law is on the ongoing achievement of an authentic world code for medicinal products ¡V a so-called ¡§Pharmacopoeia¡¨ ¡V through scientific technical harmonization. The legal dimension of medicinal products conditions the whole sector and it acquires a global dimension through the demand to protect people¡¦s health. Hence it is necessary to go forward to total harmonization of all its aspects. A global legal statute for medicinal products is justified by the very nature of the product, by its social control and the need for it to circulate freely, although limitations can be accepted, for reasons of solidarity with less favored populations. Awareness must arise that the challenge for healthcare is not going to find an adequate answer at the world level without a qualitative change in the world organization of the UN. The globalized world we live in demands reinforced continental solidarity, if we are to confront the common problems and bring about international order. A scientific technical code on the quality of medicinal products is essential for a statute on medicines. That code is the Pharmacopoeia.

  Valverde, J. L./ 9781586036683/ Price:EUR 110.00
This emphasis of this book is on the problem of the efficient use of medicinal products. It is known that this is a subject that is neither new nor unknown. Hundreds of articles have been, and will continue to be written about it. Yet it has not been resolved. The lines of consensus to tackle it have not even been defined, and there are many opinions about different aspects. What is needed is overall consideration and then to try to act on common agreed bases. But first the problem must be analysed, and so the book raises the problem in the form of a Forum. The different actors have to be heard, and the governments, too, of course, which express themselves through the legal system. We are far from providing an adequate response in any national legal system. The debate is still open, but society is waiting for replies from those who have responsibilities. There is no one right answer. Many actors are jointly responsible in this situation. The editors do not hope to exhaust the subject but rather to highlight its existence and the fact that there are so far no adequate answers. Both the Administrations and professional actors can delay no longer and must now act.

Virtual ADMET Assessment in Target Selection and Maturation: Volume 6 Solvay Pharmaceutical Conferences.
  Testa, B./ 9781586037031/ Price:EUR 154.00
Today, biologists and medicinal chemists realize that there is a strong relationship between pharmacodynamic (what the drug does to the organism) and pharmacokinetic (what the organism does to the drug) effects. A significant contributing factor to the evolution in drug discovery was the methodological and technological revolution with the advent of combinatorial chemistry, high-throughput screening and profiling, and in silico prediction of target-based activity and ADMET (absorption, distribution, metabolism, excretion and toxicity) properties. High-throughput screening and in silico methods have accelerated the process towards drugability of new chemical structures. Another component of the revolution in drug discovery is the replacement of the disease (indication)-based approach by a target-based approach. A better understanding of pathophysiology of diseases and the underlying biological processes of diseases combined with explosive development of genomics and proteomics have been instrumental in the birth of this new paradigm. This volume summarizes discussions of these three aspects of modern drug discovery, i.e. priority for targets, early ADMET assessment, and in silico screening. We trust that readers from academia as well as from industry will benefit from these studies.

SM02-326 Pharmacotherapy of Heart Failure.
  Gupta, S. K./ 9781904798248/ Price:¢G 60.00
Heart failure has been traditionally explained as a reduction in cardiac pumping capacity, caused by problems in the blood. Till now the therapy prescribed has been symptomatic, involving the use of diuretics, muscular stimulation and blood vessel relaxants. But recent research has focussed on the circumstances leading up to heart failure, which includes abnormal hemodynamics, atherosclerosis, dietary and nutritional anomalies, obesity, immunity and other metabolic disorders. This book brings together such research in one volume, including molecular and cellular aspects of heart failure and its pathophysiology. It is a significant contribution to the understanding and prevention of heart failure, and will be welcomed by cardiologists, pharmacologists, biochemists, and all those who practice and research the subject.

Availability and easy accessibility to quality medicines for the population is an important component in the health care services of any country. If the primary health system is not able to provide medicines at all times, then that system will fail and people will not use it. Though pre-judged as primarily a Third World issue, the cost of medicine is a matter of global concern. The World Health Organisation has been at the forefront of introducing and implementing schemes involving the concept of essential medicines and their supply. This book describes and discusses those schemes.

SM02-321 Drug Screening Methods.
  Gupts, S. K./ 9781904798408/ Price:¢G 95.00
Drug discovery and development is a challenging, expensive and time consuming field of research, requiring contributions from chemists, pharmacologists, toxicologists, clinicians and practitioners. The ultimate goal is to generate a safe and biologically active drug which can stall, or even reverse, the pathological events that cause the disease condition. But in the search for the drug a host of tests and trials must be applied to evaluate the efficiency and safety of the newly developed molecule in the biological system. These trials or ¡§screening methods¡¨ are critical. On their basis the new molecule either becomes accepted for usage, or is discarded forever. Advances in drug research have forced the need for quicker, more automated screening methods, using molecular techniques applied in vitro, in vivo and in clinical systems. Researchers need to know the latest developments outside their own speciality. With this book, Professor Gupta has brought together in one coherent volume the most up to date developments of consolidated screening methods for biological systems.

VM01-46 Handbook of Mind-Body Medicine for Primary Care.
  Moss, Donald/ 9780761923237/ Price:¢G 155.00
The Handbook emphasizes the concepts and technologies of clinical psychophysiology in providing an evidence-based empirical approach to problems of patients in primary care medicine from a biopsychosocial perspective. This Handbook introduces conceptual models from the psychophysiological perspective for understanding functional medical problems and describes specific clinical tools and interventions. It provides overviews of the best documented cognitive-behavioural approaches and alternative therapies to common disorders of primary care; and gives recommendations as to necessary education for practitioners in each of the mind-body disciplines (physicians, behavioural psychologists, nurse practitioners, etc.). The four editors are proponents of biofeedback, clinical psychophysiology, and related behavioural approaches. These approaches emphasise the acquisition of skills increasing a patient's ability to self-regulate physically, emotionally, and behaviourally. The Handbook covers such therapies as biofeedback, voluntary control skills training, health education, and behavioural and cognitive therapies. In line with a humanistic orientation, the book concludes with a look at the existential and spiritual side of the human encounter with sickness and disease.
