Product description


From the reviews of the second edition:

"Pharmacological studies are a pivotal but sometimes neglected area … . Failure to evaluate your candidate compound in appropriate models will greatly reduce your chances of success … . This excellent reference book will assist you in avoiding this fate. … Although the update has increased the book from around 750 to 1400 pages, it is still indexed in a clear, concise way making access to each assay easy. … I would thoroughly recommend this book. … it is a well-worth, long term investment." (Paul Baldrick, British Toxicology Society Newsletter, Issue 20, 2002)

"The second edition of ‘Drug Discovery and Evaluation’ presents an expanded and updated version of one of the classic reference handbooks on pharmacological assays. … Each assay description is sufficiently outlined and equipped with outstanding literature references. … A newly included CD-ROM provides easy identification of tests, guidelines and even legal regulations for animal experiments. … This comprehensive classical reference handbook mainly addresses the needs of pharmacological institutes and research groups working in this area." (Dr. Jürg Gertsch, BioWorld, Issue 2, 2003)
