Synopsis:
Covers concepts related to drug action, from physicochemical properties of drugs to cellular determinants of drugs actions Illustrates concepts using drug examples from the literature Provides the essential foundation to more advanced pharmacology and therapeutic courses Written as an introductory pharmacology text, Basic Pharmacology: Understanding Drug Actions and Reactions provides an in-depth discussion of the chemical and molecular pharmacology concepts that pharmacy students require for more advanced study. The book covers the principles of chemistry and biology necessary to understand drug action at the cellular level. It emphasizes chemical and physical properties of drugs, drug absorption and distribution, drug interactions with cellular receptors, and drug metabolism and interactions. The book effectively incorporates the teaching of chemical and molecular pharmacology principles with extensive use of model drug molecules.
