Cancer Pharmacology and Pharmacotherapy Review: Study Guide for Oncology Boards and MOC Exams

 Oncology, Pharmacology  Comments Off on Cancer Pharmacology and Pharmacotherapy Review: Study Guide for Oncology Boards and MOC Exams
Jun 222018
 

Cancer Pharmacology and Pharmacotherapy Reviewis the first book devoted entirely to providing the “must-know” facts on each cancer agent, including their pharmacokinetics, FDA-approved indications,toxicity, interactions, and other important information that is commonly found on board examinations and essential for any clinician or practitioner to review. The authors, an oncologist and two pharmacists, have developed a handy question-and-answer format to present the material in digestible bursts.

As the pharmacology section continues to represent a major portion of the medical oncology exam and a key component on oncology MOC exams, this portable study guide will help prepare anyone looking to fine-tune their knowledge on cancer drugs before the test. Not to mention, with recent advancements in the field of cancer treatment, it has become more cumbersome to recall and maintain essential knowledge of every cancer therapeutic, making this book not only an exam resource but also a handy quick reference for oncologists and pharmacists alike.

KEY FEATURES

Conveniently organized and arranged by drug class and subtypes for easier recall and classification
Includes proper dosage adjustments to account for liver and kidney dysfunction
Features tables throughout that provide quick reference regarding FDA-approved medications
Simplified diagrams and illustrations facilitate the pharmacokinetic processes

Pharmacology of Ocular Therapeutics

 Pharmacology  Comments Off on Pharmacology of Ocular Therapeutics
Jun 102018
 

One-stop solution for the fundamental principles and treatment options of ocular pharmacology and pharmacy, from historic origin to future perspectives
Rationalizes ocular therapeutics using pharmacological principles and with a scope for developing newer agents
Covers key aspects of diverse agents used in day-to-day ophthalmology practice, from diagnostics to therapeutics

This book comprises an integrated review of ocular therapeutics across all relevant fields. It addresses the real-world requirements of ophthalmologists, pharmacists and optometrists, as observed through working alongside these practitioners for two decades. Knowledge surrounding agents used in ophthalmic practice has, historically, been scattered. The book facilitates understanding of ocular drug therapy by compiling all key aspects of the pharmacology, toxicology, pharmaceutical science, ocular biochemistry and cell biology of these agents.
Chapters detail drug transfer across barriers, systemic toxicity of topically applied drugs, autonomic drugs used for diagnostics, as well as anti-inflammatory, antiallergic, glaucoma and antimicrobial therapies, and avenues for the development of new ocular drugs. Applications of extemporaneously prepared formulations are described to inform day-to-day clinical practice. The use of mucoadhesive polymers in tear substitutes, ocular drug delivery systems, stem cell therapy, pharmacogenomics and antiangiogenic ocular chemotherapy are also explored. The book also provides insights from drugs of herbal origin, and a historical perspective on drugs for ocular use.
Practicing and resident ophthalmologists, optometrists, pharmacists, nursing professionals, scholars in ocular drug research and students will equally benefit from this comprehensive guide.

Macrolides: Properties, Synthesis and Applications

 Pharmacology  Comments Off on Macrolides: Properties, Synthesis and Applications
Jun 092018
 

Macrolide antibiotics represent a class of natural macrocyclic products, one of the most clinically important antibiotics. Unfortunately, the production and development of new macrolide antibiotics are not represented enough in the pharmaceutical industry today. The intention of the book is therefore not only to be a teaching tool for students and experts, but also to draw the attention of the general public to this extremely useful, cheap and relatively unharmful effective anti-macrobials, and potential anti-malarials. The authors introduce the different classes of macrolides and their derivatives, principles of their biological activity, their structure and interactions with biological targets as well as synthetic methods to produce new macrolide antibiotics of similar or improved properties. Special emphasis was put on conjugates of macrolides with nucleobases or nucleosides with numerous applications; among them the most important remains the attempt to overcome bacterial resistance
