This edition includes a number of new or updated features that further enhance the appeal of the text.
Study Questions: Each chapter includes five to seven examination questions (following the United States Medical Licensing Examination guidelines) with detailed answers to help students test their knowledge of the covered material.
Case Studies: Appearing at the end of each chapter, case studies present students with real-life examples of clinical scenarios and require them to apply their knowledge to solve the problem.
Refined Focus: In this edition, we chose to focus more on drug classes rather than on individual drugs, eliminate unnecessary detail such as chemical structures, and maintain emphasis on structure-activity relationships in drug action and development.
Updated Information: This edition also includes new information from the clinic and the laboratory. Emerging information has been added within chapters and when appropriate (as in the case of herbal drugs and erectile dysfunction), through the addition of new chapters.
With these revisions, we hope we have provided a book that is readable, up-to-date, comprehensive but not exhaustive, and accurate—a text that supplies both students and faculty with a clear introduction to modern pharmacotherapeutics.
