About this product
- DescriptionThe perceived lack of drug discovery productivity in recent times has led to much debate in the pharmaceutical/biotechlogy industry as escalating R&D costs are t being matched by increased output. Few observers doubt that selecting the right targets, i.e, those which are critical to disease pathology and are druggable, is the best starting point for improved productivity. The seven chapters of this volume describe recent progress towards drugs acting at a range of druggable targets. One chapter addresses kinases, one covers an ion channel, two proteases are featured and three of the chapters cover G-protein coupled receptors, which has historically perhaps been the most fruitful area for medicinal chemists. It presents the latest research in the field of drug discovery. It publishes on an annual basis to bring you the most invative updates in medicinal chemistry. It is available as an online resource via ScienceDirect.
