Colour Atlas Of Pharmacology 2nd Ed. (thieme 2000).pdf

  • A+


The present second edition of the Color Atlas of Pharmacology goes to print six years
after the first edition. Numerous revisions were needed, highlighting the dramatic
continuing progress in the drug sciences. In particular, it appeared necessary to include
novel therapeutic principles, such as the inhibitors of platelet aggregation
from the group of integrin GPIIB/IIIA antagonists, the inhibitors of viral protease, or
the non-nucleoside inhibitors of reverse transcriptase. Moreover, the re-evaluation
and expanded use of conventional drugs, e.g., in congestive heart failure, bronchial
asthma, or rheumatoid arthritis, had to be addressed. In each instance, the primary
emphasis was placed on essential sites of action and basic pharmacological principles.
Details and individual drug properties were deliberately omitted in the interest
of making drug action more transparent and affording an overview of the pharmacological
basis of drug therapy.
The authors wish to reiterate that the Color Atlas of Pharmacology cannot replace a
textbook of pharmacology, nor does it aim to do so. Rather, this little book is designed
to arouse the curiosity of the pharmacological novice; to help students of medicine
and pharmacy gain an overview of the discipline and to review certain bits of
information in a concise format; and, finally, to enable the experienced therapist to
recall certain factual data, with perhaps some occasional amusement.
