A Textbook of Clinical Pharmacology, 4Ed Summary


A Textbook of Clinical Pharmacology, 4Ed by H.G. Rogers

Clinical pharmacology remains at the heart of surgical and medical practice, and this comprehensive textbook introduces the major topics. It describes in detail the therapeutic use of the ever increasing catalogue of medical drugs available for prescription by a physician/nurse practitioner. All areas of drug prescribing are covered and have been updated since the previous edition, especially the rapidly changing fields of HIV treatment and biotechnology drugs.



'The Textbook of Clinical Pharmacology', 4th edition adopts a systems-based approach and covers the core syllabus for medical undergraduates. In this edition, new chapters on drugs and the eye, and molecular therapeutics have been included. Key points have been highlighted for revision and challenging clinical pharmacology cases will help the reader to assess their learning. The improvements to this edition of a 'Textbook of Clinical Pharmacology' ensures that the book remains the core text for undergraduates.
