ACS Symposium Series (ACS Publications)This book presents a review of recent developments in NMR applications in pharmaceutical research. Consideration is given to consolidated and emerging techniques and methods in NMR, many of which are not widely applied but are likely to provide new opportunities for drug design. The first part of the book is dedicated to the description of NMR as a tool for the analysis of chemicals and interaction with targets. Particular emphasis is put on applications with unexploited potential for drug discovery and development. The next seven chapters describe NMR approaches to investigate in vivo models of interest in drug discovery and development, with the attention focused on anatomy, function, metabolism and molecular-cellular aspects. Finally, consideration is given to the application of in vivo NMR to the identification and characterization of biomarkers with the aim of monitoring the outcome of therapeutic intervention in selected human diseases, including the study of drug metabolism and toxicity.
Mahidol University , Thailand. It is very important for scientists all over the globe to enhance drug discovery research for better human health. This book demonstrates that various expertise are essential for drug discovery including synthetic or natural drugs, clinical pharmacology, receptor identification, drug metabolism, pharmacodynamic and pharmacokinetic research. The following 5 sections cover diverse chapter topics By Simon A.
Basic Principles of Drug Discovery and Development presents the multifaceted process of identifying a new drug in the modern era, providing comprehensive explanations of enabling technologies such as high throughput screening, structure based drug design, molecular modeling, pharmaceutical profiling, and translational medicine, all areas that have become critical steps in the successful development of marketable therapeutics. The text introduces the fundamental principles of drug discovery and development, also discussing important drug targets by class, in vitro screening methods, medicinal chemistry strategies in drug design, principles in pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics, animal models of disease states, clinical trial basics, and selected business aspects of the drug discovery process. It is designed to enable new scientists to rapidly understand the key fundamentals of drug discovery, including pharmacokinetics, toxicology, and intellectual property. As an industrial medicinal chemist, Dr. These experiences, as well as his training and expertise as a registered US patent agent, have provided him with the tools and skills necessary to bridge the gap between industrial drug discovery and academic research.
