Lippincott’s Illustrated Reviews: Pharmacology, Fourth Edition enables rapid review and assimilation of large amounts of complex information about the essentials of medical pharmacology. Clear, sequential pictures of mechanisms of action actually show students how drugs work, instead of just telling them. As in previous editions, the book features an outline format, over 500 full-color illustrations, cross-references to other volumes in the series, and over 125 review questions. Content has been thoroughly updated, and a new chapter covers toxicology.
New to this edition will be a companion Website containing all of the illustrations, fully searchable text, and an interactive question bank.

Endotoxin detection and control is a dynamic area of applied science that touches a vast number of complex subjects. The intersection of test activities includes the use of an ancient blood system from an odd “living fossil” (Limulus). It is used to detect remnants of the most primitive and destructive forms of life (prokaryotes) as contaminants of complex modern systems (mammalian and Pharma).
Recent challenges in the field include those associated with the application of traditional methods to new types of molecules and manufacturing processes. The advent of “at will” production of biologics in lieu of harvesting animal proteins has revolutionized the treatment of disease. While the fruits of the biotechnology revolution are widely acknowledged, the realization of the differences in the means of production and changes in the manner of control of potential impurities and contaminants in regard to the new versus the old are less widely appreciated.
Endotoxin as an ancient, dynamic interface between lifeforms, provides a singular perspective from which to view the parallel development of ancient and modern organisms as well as the progress of man in deciphering the complexity of their interactions in his efforts to overcome disease.

Basic Principles of Pharmacology with Dental Hygiene Applications presents up-to-date pharmacological principles and identifies applications of these principles in day-to-day dental hygiene practice. The text coordinates principles of pharmacology with pathophysiology and identifies applications to the oral health treatment plan and treatment record information. Coverage includes subjects not found in other pharmacology textbooks for dental hygiene students: adverse drug effects, drugs used by the dental hygienist, sources to help patients or personnel seek treatment for substance abuse problems, and herbal supplements. Each chapter includes case studies, self-study questions, end-of-chapter dental hygiene application summaries, and clinical application exercises.

This is the perfect pharmacology textbook for medical and pharmacy students. The book was developed on the +30-year experience of the author as pharmacology professor in the United States and Germany. The book discusses the most important drugs (400) in the context of relevant diseases. Summary tables and schemes, MCQ exam questions, case studies and a list of drugs aid memorization of the material before an exam. All chapters are written in the same concise style and use a modern and precise pharmacological nomenclature. After reading of the book, the student will be able to critically assess the proper use of the most important drugs and advise patients properly. The didactic concept of the book has been developed on the author’s own pharmacology courses for which he has received numerous teaching awards. The book takes advantage of the learning spiral, in which material is presented repeatedly from various angles.
This book is an adaptation for an international audience of the German textbook “Basiswissen Pharmakologie” (2018); ISBN: 978-3-662-56303-8.
An integrated approach to the study of drug action mechanisms
Biochemical Pharmacology is a concise and contemporary textbook on the principles of drug action. It discusses representative drugs by example to explore the range of biochemical targets and mechanisms. The book explains some of the experiments that tell us how drugs work, and it outlines the physiological and pathological context that make those action mechanisms therapeutically useful.
Biochemical Pharmacology is intended primarily for students in biology and biochemistry at the advanced undergraduate or graduate levels. For classroom use, the illustrations from the book are separately available as PowerPoint slides. It is written in a conversational, vivid style that readily encourages students to explore this important area of medical science. Biochemical Pharmacology can also serve as an introduction for professionals in biosciences, as well as in pharmaceutical and health sciences.
Complete with numerous figures throughout the text, which are also available separately as PowerPoint slides, Biochemical Pharmacology:
Explains the role of pharmacodynamics, pharmacokinetics, and drug metabolism in drug action
Provides representative examples from the pharmacology of cell excitation, hormones, nitric oxide, chemotherapy, and others
Examines emerging applications of ribonucleic acids as drugs and drug targets
Discusses what researchers need to know about the problems of drug distribution, elimination, and toxicity
Biochemical Pharmacology is an important resource for anyone wishing to gain an in–depth understanding of drug action mechanisms and extremely useful for researchers wishing to explore some of the unanswered questions .
