Looks like you are currently in Ukraine but have requested a page in the United States site. Would you like to change to the United States site? Gerard A. McKay , Matthew R. Clinical Pharmacology and Therapeutics Lecture Notes provides a clear and accessible overview of all the key prescribing topics needed for medical finals and beyond.
Detailed coverage and discussion of pharmacology in a clinical context, combined with an easy-to-understand, readable style, helps improve and test understanding of pharmacological principles and reasoning on rotation and into the foundation years. The preface of the third edition acknowledges that much has changed, even since the second edition, particularly in relation to the rise of evidence-based medicine and the development of detailed guidelines on the management of common clinical problems.
The book is set out in four sections. Section 1 pp. Section 2 23 pp. Section 3 pp. Section 4 pp. Section 1 provides a very clear account of the scientific basis of drug therapy. Sometimes dry principles such as pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics are enlivened by excellent clinical examples.
I would certainly recommend this section to students as a source of information about these aspects of drug therapy. However, Section 1 also contains some very cursory references to complex issues such as patient compliance, drug costs, drug formularies and national bodies such as NICE, who are charged with providing guidance about evidence-based prescribing. What little there is of Section 2 is excellent, but only as far as it goes.
It provides a clear account of the questions that a prescriber should ask before prescribing a drug. This includes the crucial question: However, it does not address the question of which drugs are available and why. Nor could I find any reference to guidelines, either local or national, as a source of information to answer the questions that are posed, or to audit as a means of critically evaluating individual prescribers or the organizations in which they work.
This applies the principles of prescribing described in Section 2 in a clear, concise manner, while adding additional, relevant information about antimicrobial chemotherapy and resistance to antimicrobials. The authors do not shy away from providing recommendations for the treatment of specific infections, and these are very much in line with our local antibiotic policy and with national recommendations, such as the PHLS guidance on treatment of infections in the community.
I would have no hesitation in recommending this section to students as a basic source of information about antimicrobial chemotherapy. Having said that, this information is also available in comprehensive medical textbooks.
Section 4 provides concise but complete information on a large number of drugs set out alphabetically. The information goes well beyond what is available in the BNF, and I would strongly recommend this to students as a source of basic factual information about specific drugs.
It is an excellent source of the specific information that students need to know about the drugs that they intend to prescribe regularly. In order to predict the possible consequences of the co-administration of two or more drugs it is essential that the clinician has a practical knowledge of the pharmacological mechanisms involved in drug interactions, an awareness of the drugs associated with greatest risk, and the most susceptible patient groups.
Clinicians must also be alert to the possible involvement of non-prescribed medicines and other substances in drug interactions. There is an increasing tendency for patients to self-treat with medications that can be downloadd without a prescription, including herbal medicines. In addition, some foodstuffs, most notably grapefruit juice, have attracted attention as a cause of drug interactions. This chapter reviews the main mechanisms of drug interactions. It gives some clinically important examples of these, and suggests how they can be assessed and managed.
It focuses on drug interactions that may have an adverse clinical outcome, rather than those that are used to therapeutic advantage.
The issues of pharmaceutical incompatibility and drug interactions with food and alcohol will not be covered here.

Their sites of action are thus restricted to the synthesis area. They have diverse physiological and pharmacological activities with a short duration of action which primarily involve responses to injury.
Of general importance are effects on smooth muscle contraction. With respect to vascular smooth muscle, there are both vasoconstrictor and vasodilator autacoids. Vasodilator autacoids can be released during periods of exercise. Their main effect is seen in the skin, allowing for heat loss. Autacoids are a chemically diverse group of substances which are released in response to various types of stimulation. An imbalance in their synthesis, release or in the transduction system contributes significantly to pathological conditions such as inflammation, allergy, hypersensitivity and ischaemia.
The autacoids comprise histamine, serotonin, angiotensin, neurotensin, NO nitric oxide , kinins, platelet-activating factor, endothelins and the four families of traditional eicosanoids — the leukotrienes and three types of prostanoids i. Several other natural occurring molecules are sometimes called eicosanoid, including the hepoxilins, resolvins, isofurans, isoprostanes, lipoxins, epoxyeicosatrienoic acids EETs and some endocannabinoids.
However, not all the substances which can be categorized as autacoids have a direct bearing on our pharmacotherapeutic armamentarium. Peripheral blockers of the sympathetic nervous system; IV.

Preface The second edition of this textbook of clinical pharmacology is welcome in a world of evidence-based pharmacotherapy and guidelines. Download PDF. Section I. General Principles - Part A: Medicinals in Society. Drug Benefits.
Abstract The subject of both sections of this chapter is complex. Drug Risks.
Abstract Despite all the good that prescription drugs do, evidence continues to mount that adverse drug events are a common, costly, and often preventable cause of illness, disability, and even death. Therapeutics as a Science. Abstract I. Pharmacoepidemiology and Drug Evaluation.
Abstract Modern drugs are generally evaluated according to three major criteria: Economic Evaluation of Pharmaceuticals and Clinical Practice. Abstract Conventional evaluation of new medical technologies such as pharmaceutical products includes consideration of efficacy, effectiveness, and safety.
Clinical Pharmacology and Drug Policy. Abstract The discipline of clinical pharmacology brings together clinical and scientific practice to support critical and independent appraisal of data pertaining to drugs and therapeutics, and the rational use of medicines.
Drug Regulation: History, Present and Future. Medicines in Developing Countries. Abstract Major causes of morbidity and mortality in many developing countries such as malaria, tuberculosis, pneumonia, acute diarrheas, maternal diseases can be treated with simple essential medicines Box 1. Drug Information. Drug Development.
Abstract In this chapter an overview will be given of the drug development process, which is both exciting and complex. General Principles - Part B: General Clinical Pharmacology.
Clinical Pharmacokinetics. Abstract Students often find pharmacokinetics difficult. Clinical Pharmacodynamics. Abstract Drugs are molecules that interact with macromolecular structures in the body to produce effects that are intended to be beneficial, most often through modification of pathophysiological processes. Drug Therapy in Pediatric Patients. Gregory L. Kearns, John T.
Wilson, Kathleen A. Neville, Margaret A. Abstract In stark contrast to adults, the use of drugs in infants, children and adolescents embodies a unique element which must be considered to ensure drug safety and efficacy; namely, the impact of development on both drug disposition and action.
Drug Therapy in Older Persons. Abstract Drug use in older patients generally is similar to that in younger adults.
Adverse Drug Reactions. Abstract Adverse drug reactions constitute a major morbidity, causing deaths in some cases. There are some general points for any doctor to bear in mind before prescribing, related to safety: Drug—Drug Interactions. Abstract Interactions between drugs were first recognised over years ago. The net effect of the combination may be: Clinical Pharmacology of Poisoning. Section II. Pharmacotherapeutic Products. Neurohumoral Transmission.
