What’s new in Third Edition?

  • Creation of full-color figures throughout the textbook—about 450 in all. Every figure has been updated and colorized and over 50 figures are new or substantially modified to highlight advances in our understanding of physiologic, pathophysiologic, and pharmacologic mechanisms.
  • Addition of new pedagogical elements to enhance learning, including icons placed within the text to indicate answers
    to the introductory case questions in each chapter.
  • Reorganization of chapters in the fundamentals of pharmacology. Along with drug-receptor interactions, pharmacodynamics, pharmacokinetics, drug metabolism, and drug toxicity, pharmacogenomics is now discussed in
    the first section of the textbook to complete a conceptual framework for the fundamental principles of pharmacology
    that serve as the foundation for material in all subsequent chapters.
  • Comprehensive update of all 37 drug summary tables. These tables, which have been particularly popular with
    readers, group drugs and drug classes according to mechanism of action and list clinical applications, serious and
    common adverse effects, contraindications, and therapeutic considerations for each drug discussed in the chapter.
  • Comprehensive update of all chapters, including new drugs approved through 2010.
