About this product
- DescriptionRecent advances in high-throughput gene sequencing and other omics biotechlogies have served as a springboard for the field of pharmacogemics. Pharmacogemics is w generally accepted as the major determinant of variable drug safety, efficacy, and cost-effectiveness. Therefore, widespread use of pharmacogemics for patient care has become a critical requirement. There is an unprecedented urgency for aspiring and practicing clinicians to become trained on how to interpret data from pharmacogemic testing in preparation for the future of healthcare-i.e., personalized medicine. Applying Pharmacogemics in Therapeutics provides timely coverage of the principles, practice, and potential of pharmacogemics and personalized medicine. Comprised of chapters contributed by well-established pharmacologists and scientists from US and Chinese academia and industry, this authoritative text: * Demonstrates how to apply the principles of pharmacogemics and its biotechlogies in patient care * Depicts the use of genetic biomarkers in drug discovery and development, laboratory medicine, and clinical services * Describes the practice of pharmacogemics in the treatment of cancers, cardiovascular diseases, neurologic and psychiatric disorders, and pulmonary diseases * Discusses the merging of pharmacogemics and alternative medicine, as well as the integration of pharmacogemics into pharmacoecomics Each chapter begins with the key concepts, followed by in-depth explorations of case reports or critical evaluations of genetic variants/biomarkers, and concludes with questions for self-examination.
