The objective of this textbook/reference work is to provide a comprehensive and up-to-date correlation of pharmacology with related medical sciences, a reinterpretation of the actions and uses of drug from the view point of the latest advances in medicine and pace emphasis on the application of pharmacodynamics to therapeutics. Throughout its history, Goodman & Gilman has become more than a textbook. It is a working template for effective and rational prescribing of drugs in daily practice. The careful balance of basic science and clinical application has guided students and practitioners to a better understanding of how and why drugs work. The information is presented in a style that reads with maximum clarity and purpose. Transformed and expanded in the last edition, G&G10, under the superb direction of Drs. Hardman and Limbird, brings the field of pharmacology completely up-to-date in terms of molecular biology, new drugs, and clinical studies, which have contributed, to our understanding of therapeutics and their role in the management of disease.Goodman, Louis Sanford is the author of 'Goodman and Gilman's the Pharmacological Basis of Therapeutics', published 2001 under ISBN 9780071354691 and ISBN 0071354697.
