Description

An Introduction to Mechanisms in Pharmacology and Therapeutics aims to provide some extra information and background reading on modes of action of drugs, but it is not meant to replace existing pharmacology textbooks. It also attempts to show the connection between cell biology and the practice of clinical medicine. This book is organized into 13 chapters that discuss drug-receptor interactions and the influence of drugs on the nervous, respiratory, circulatory, and alimentary systems. They also explain the concepts of pharmacogenetics, intracellular control mechanisms, chemotherapy, and the different types of drugs.
This book will be of interest to preclinical and clinical medical students and those preparing for Bachelor of Science degree in Pharmacology and others interested in understanding how drugs work.
