Each chapter is organized to first present the clinical pharmacology of the drugs, followed by the treatment of specific diseases.
Many useful illustrations facilitate the understanding of pharmacology.
Provides a highly clinical focus, discussing adverse drug reactions and their management and drug interactions. Coverage of disease treatment includes physiology and pathophysiology as it relates to the use of each drug.
Chapters include content on recombinant agents to cover those drugs used to stimulate the hematopoietic and immune systems.
