Description

Praise for the Series: "This series is one of the very few annual publications which justify the title of an absolute must for the pharmacologist, chemist, or physician who is interested in the chemistry of drug development." --Enzymologia "This book is strongly recommended for researchers, teachers, students, administrators - in short, anyone whose interests impinge on medicinal chemistry. In view of the work's documented reference value, it is a must for inlusion in the scientist's personal library." --Journal of Medicinal Chemistry "All topics are covered in sufficient depth, with extensive references, to allow either the specialist or the novice to be informed of the latest developments in a particular area of medicinal chemistry." --Norman Gilman, Hoffmann-La Roche, Inc, in the JOURNAL OF PHARMACEUTICAL SCIENCES Advances in Medicinal Chemistry continues to provide timely and critical reviews of important topics in medicinal chemistry together with an emphasis on emerging topics in the biological sciences, which are expected to provide the basis for entirely new future therapies.
