Fundamentals of Biochemical Pharmacology is a basic introduction to the fundamental aspects of pharmacology. It explains the molecular aspects of drugs, as well as the different biochemical systems and cellular strategies that they cause. The book is divided into two sections, the first of which covers physiochemical methods, histological methods, and physiological methods. The second section covers biochemical lesions; functions of subcellular structures; transfer of ions and molecules across cellular membrane; pharmacokinetics; drug receptor interactions; effects of drugs on structure; biosynthesis; catabolism; and biotransformation of drugs. The book is a good reference for pharmacology students who are learning about the the basic underlying concepts of biochemical pharmacology. It will also appeal to researchers with a background in chemistry, biochemistry, biology, microbiology, botany, or zoology.
