Summary and Info
This second edition of the highly praised Drug Interaction in Infectious Diseases includes all the major recent advances in the understanding of drug interactions, with emphasis on the many new drugs approved since the first edition. The treatment of the mechanisms of drug interaction has increased to fill two chapters, allowing a more detailed description of absorption, metabolism, and excretion, as well as describing the growing knowledge of transport proteins. Recent reports of drug interactions, new case studies, and a new chapter outlining the regulatory perspective on interaction studies during drug development have been added. The information contained in the book ranges from detailed tables of specific drug-drug interactions to in-depth discussions of interaction mechanisms and research issues.
