Item description for Stereochemical Aspects of Drug Action and Disposition (Handbook of Experimental Pharmacology) by Michel Eichelbaum...
This book aims to guide and inspire drug researchers as they enter the 21st century. Stereochemistry is an essential dimension in pharmacology and should be understood as such by all drug researchers whatever their background. When used as probes or medicines, stereoisomeric drugs offer invaluable insights or innovative therapeutic strategies. The book spans the subject from the molecular to the clinical. The first section on chemical aspects contains chapters on chemical synthesis, analysis, natural products, chiral stability (racemezation) and physical properties. The second section is on experimental pharmacology, with chapters on drug-receptor interactions, chiral recognition, ion channels, and molecular toxicology. The third section focuses on drug disposition, with chapters on absorption, distribution, protein binding, metabolism and elimination. The final section is dedicated to regulatory and clinical aspects.
