Human Drug Metabolism, 3rd Edition begins by covering basic concepts such as clearance and bioavailability, and looks at the evolution of biotransformation, and how drugs fit into this carefully managed biological environment. More information on how cytochrome P450s function and how they are modulated at the sub-cellular level is offered in this new edition. The book also introduces helpful concepts for those struggling with the relationship of pharmacology to physiology, as well as the inhibition of biotransformational activity. Recent advances in knowledge of a number of other metabolizing systems are covered, including glucuronidation and sulphation, along with the main drug transporters. Also, themes from the last edition are developed in an attempt to chart the progress of personalized medicine from concepts towards practical inclusion in routine therapeutics. The last chapter focuses on our understanding of how and why drugs injure us, both in predictable and unpredictable ways. Appendix A highlights some practical approaches employed in both drug metabolism research and drug discovery, whilst Appendix B outlines the metabolism of some drugs of abuse. Appendix C advises on formal examination preparation and Appendix D lists some substrates, inducers and inhibitors of the major human cytochrome P450s.
