Drug Bioscreening, Drug Evaluation Techniques in Pharmacology
This cook-book approach to drug discovery and development will appeal to a wide range of individuals involved in the search for new drugs with potential clinical application. The evaluation techniques presented, although not all-inclusive, help the uninitiated researcher to identify and establish certain drug entities.
An appendix of frequently used laboratory techniques, such as serial or repeated sampling of blood, is given. The book contains a subject index and a glossary of terms.
This work will assist the organic chemist in establishing the potential usefulness of a newly synthesized chemical substance. It will also be of benefit to the botanist, the pharmacognocist, and the phytochemist, who are constantly probing the depth of nature's resources for potential remedies among plants. Other researchers in allied fields of drug development, such as the pharmacologist and biochemist, will appreciate the scope of this handy guide.
