En la presentación de la obra se dice que su objetivo es "promover y facilitar entre los profesionales de la salud la indicación y prescripción de medicamentos a base de plantas".
Un cómodo sistema de fichas agrupado según la clasificación anatomopatológica del Consejo General de Farmacia permite la identificación, en función de los diversos grados de evidencia disponible, de una determinada interacción. Las tablas de interacciones adjudican un color a cada clasificación -Aparato Cardiovascular, Aparato Respiratorio, Aparato Locomotor, Sistema Nervioso, Aparato Digestivo y Aparato Genitourinario y Hormonas Sexuales-, asociada a una ficha que identifica el fitomediacamento, el grado de evidencia científica de la asociación, el nombre del fármaco de síntesis y el resultado de la interacción.
Written by leading American practitioners, the book offer a pocket-sized overview of an entire specialty, featuring instant access to guidance on the conditions that are most likely to be encountered.'The Oxford American Handbook of Anesthesiology' is a reliable manual that is geared for quick access, covering a full range of drug options and presenting guidelines for safe and effective patient care. At over 1100 pages in pocket format, it is comprehensive yet thin and light and also uses concise bulleted text, quick reference tabs, four-color presentation, and bookmark ribbons to help provide fast answers on the ward.
An accessible yet comprehensive handbook for students and professionals. Sporting a new, full-color look, Molecular Pharmacology is a highly readable primer on how brain chemistry relates to normal brain function. Inside, medical students will find key information about neurologic and psychiatric diseases and how to treat them, while novice neuroscientists will learn how the molecular mechanisms of proteins, messengers, and receptors affect the systems of an organism. In order to provide the most accessible tutorial available, the authors have included a greater number of photos than ever, as well as more concisely written content. Plus, fact boxes can be found throughout to help reinforce learning of complex subject matter. Divided into three sections-Fundamentals of Neuropharmacology, Neural Substrates or Drug Action, and Neuropharmacology of Specific Functions and Disorders, Molecular Pharmacology is ideal for those who need a quick, efficient lesson about treating neurologic diseases and disorders.
Although many books are available that deal with clinical aspects of cancer chemotherapy, this book addresses the need for an updated treatment from the point of view of medicinal chemistry and drug design. Cytotoxic chemotherapy is gradually being supplemented by a new generation of drugs that recognize specific targets on the surface or inside cancer cells. These therapies are in their infancy, but they hold promise of more effective therapies with fewer side effects. Resistance to antitumour drugs is another important but normally neglected field. The focus of 'Medicinal Chemistry of Anticancer Drugs' is on the mechanism of action of antitumour drugs from the molecular point of view and on the relationship between chemical structure and chemical and biochemical reactivity of antitumour agents, aiming at the rationalization of the action of this type of drugs, which would allow the design of new active structures.
