Th is text is aimed at undergraduates and postgraduates who have a basic grounding in chemistry and are studying a module or degree in medicinal chemistry. It attempts to convey, in a readable and interesting style, an understanding about drug design and the molecular mechanisms by which drugs act in the body. In so doing, it highlights the importance of medicinal chemistry in all our lives and the fascination of working in a field which overlaps the disciplines of chemistry, biochemistry, physiology, microbiology, cell biology, and pharmacology. Consequently, the book is of particular interest to students who might be considering a future career in the pharmaceutical industry.
Following the success of the first four editions, as well as useful feedback from readers, there has been some re-organization and updating of chapters, especially those
in Part E. Chapters have been modified, as appropriate, to reflect contemporary topics and teaching methods.
• new coverage of 99 drugs not featured in the previous edition;
• six new boxes, covering topics such ‘Cyclodextrins as drug scavengers’, ‘Th e structure-based drug design of crizotinib’, and ‘Designing a non-steroidal glucocorticoid agonist’;
• a new case study on steroidal anti-inflammatory agents;
• over 25 new sections, providing additional depth in subject areas including ‘Tethers and anchors’ and ‘Short-acting β-blockers’;
• additional end-of-chapter questions;
• current reference lists.
