Pharmacogenomics in Drug Discovery and Development
Since each human is genetically distinctive, responding differently to disease-causing factors as well as drugs, the field pharmacogenomics arose to develop personalized medicine, or medicine that deals with the complexity of the human body. In Pharmacogenomics in Drug Discovery and Development, leading experts present methodical, state-of-the-art contributions covering topics from individual molecules to systemic diseases, examining both fundamental concepts and advanced technologies. Divided into three sections, the volume begins by exploring cutting-edge technologies used to pursue systems-based pharmacogenomics, followed by extensive chapters on gene-drug interactions and the use of pharmacogenomics in therapeutics of diseases.
Comprehensive and up-to-date, Pharmacogenomics in Drug Discovery and Development is an ideal volume for scientists striving to transform disease treatment into disease prevention.
Examines both fundamental concepts and advanced technologies in pharmacogenomicsUses cutting-edge technologies to pursue systems-based pharmacogenomics, including bioinformatics, microarray, and association studies Methodical, state-of-the-art contributions covering topics from individual molecules, gene-drug interactions, to systemic diseases presented by leading experts Explores extensive applications of pharmacogenomics in drug development for diseases including psychiatric disorders, cardiovascular diseases, cancer, Alzheimer's disease, rheumatoid arthritis, asthma, and infectious diseases
