Oxford Desk Reference: Acute Medicine (Oxford Desk Reference Series)

By (author): Richard Leach, Kevin Moore, Derek Bell

In this era of evidence-based medicine, one of the biggest challenges confronting acute medicine clinicians is keeping abreast with the rapidly changing recommendations that guide clinical practice. Oxford Desk Reference: Acute Medicine allows easy access to evidence-based materials on commonly encountered acute medical problems to ensure the optimum management of the acutely unwell patient. Collating all the research-based guidelines and protocols in one easily accessible place and presenting it in a uniform style, this practical book is hugely advantageous for a busy clinician as it is not always easy to access research-based guidelines and protocols when needed in the clinic.

The book is designed so that each subject forms a self-contained topic in its own right. This makes the information simple to find, read, and absorb, so that the book can be consulted in the clinic or ward setting for information on the optimum management of a particular condition.

Edited by three experts in acute medicine, this book should never be far from the acute medicine clinician’s side.

Translating Molecules into Medicines: Cross-Functional Integration at the Drug Discovery-Development Interface (AAPS Advances in the Pharmaceutical Sciences Series)

Tackling translational medicine with a focus on the drug discovery development-interface, this book integrates approaches and tactics from multiple disciplines, rather than just the pharmaceutical aspect of the field. The authors of each chapter address the paradox between the molecular understanding of diseases, drug discovery, and drug development. Laying out the detailed trends from various fields, different chapters are dedicated to target engagement, toxicological safety assessments, and the compelling relationship of optimizing early clinical studies with design strategies. The book also highlights the importance of balancing the three pillars: sufficient efficacy, acceptable safety and appropriate pharmacokinetics, all of which are crucial to successful efforts in discovery and development. With discussions regarding the combined approaches of molecular research, personalized medicine, pre-clinical and clinical development, as well as targeted therapies?this compendium is a flexible fit, perfect for professionals in the pharmaceutical industry and related academic fields.
