Drug Metabolism Handbook from C.H.I.P.S.

Handbook of Drug Metabolism
Second edition
edited by Paul G. Pearson

Handbook of Drug Metabolism provides comprehensive coverage of the fundamental aspects of drug metabolism and the practical applications that help guide researchers through key challenges in modern drug discovery and development.

This Second edition covers the many recent scientific and technical advances in the field and is organized into four sections:

  • fundamental aspects of drug metabolism
  • factors that affect drug metabolism
  • new enabling technologies to study drug metabolism
  • applications of metabolism studies in drug development and drug discovery

  5. Transformation Enzymes: Oxidative; Non-P450
  6. UDP-Glucuronosyltransferases

Part II: Factors Which Affect Drug Metabolism

  1. Pharmacogenetics
  2. Inhibition of Drug Metabolizing Enzymes
  3. The Ontogeny of Drug Metabolizing Enzymes/Pediatric Exclusivity
  4. Sites of Extra Hepatic Metabolism, Part I: Lung
