    Description
    A COMPLETE INTRODUCTORY TEXT TO THE FIELD OF PHARMACOGENOMICS

    The only pharmacogenomics resource to feature a global author team comprised of PharmDs, MDs, PhDs and social scientists, Pharmacogenomics offers an essential, highly accessible survey of this dynamic discipline. You will find thorough coverage of all need-to-know topics, from individual molecules to systemic diseases, plus an examination of the latest technologies that are constantly reshaping the field. Pharmacogenomics is cohesively organized into two sections, the first of which reviews basic aspects of pharmacogenomics, including ethics, regulatory, science, and drug metabolism, along with a "mini" course in molecular genetics and testing. The second section highlights the practical application of pharmacogenomics in cardiovascular medicine, immunology, neurology, and other specialties.
