Praise for the First Edition

"A concise, yet comprehensive, survey of the entire drug development process."
Journal of Chemical Technology and Biotechnology

The new edition of this bestselling book continues to offer a user-friendly, step-by-step introduction to all the key processes involved in bringing a drug to the market, including the performance of preclinical studies, the conduct of human clinical trials, regulatory controls, and even the manufacturing processes for pharmaceutical products. Concise and easy to read, the book quickly introduces basic concepts, then moves on to discuss target selection and the drug discovery process for both small and large molecular drugs.

This Second Edition features many key enhancements, including Key Points, Chapter Summary, and Review Questions in each chapter; Answers to Review Questions provided in an appendix; and carefully selected "mini" case studies in each chapter.

Richly illustrated throughout with over ninety figures and tables, this important new edition also includes helpful listings of current FDA and European guidelines and a special section on regulatory authority and processes in China. It is an indispensable resource for pharmaceutical industry and academic researchers, pharmaceutical managers and executives, healthcare clinicians, policymakers, regulators, and lobbyists with an interest in drug development. It is also an excellent textbook for students in pharmacy, science, and medicine courses.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I work as an account manager in the Life Sciences vertical of an ITES organisation. I have been in the system for quite some time and had gained understanding of some of the key Pharmaceutical business fucntion.

This book particularly helped me to understand the full landscape and gain overall perpective. I would recommend this to anyone who has some or no business function knowledge and is wanting to consolidate. I would also recommend you to note down the points that are of interest to you and weave them in your own Pharma story.

I have now picked up Manual of Drug Safety And Pharmacovigilance. I am hoping this book would be as interesting as the earlier one.

Format: Hardcover
Avicenna and Rhazes were Persian not Arab!
Unfortunately, in A1.2.2 of second edition, it is written:
Through trade with many regions, the Arabians learned and extended medical knowledge. Their major contribution is perhaps the knowledge of medical
preparations and distillation methods, although the techniques were probably
derived from the practices of alchemists. Avicenna, around ad 900 – 1000,
recorded a vast encyclopedia of medical description and treatment. Another
noted physician was Rhazes, who accurately described measles and smallpox.

I have a chem/biochem background and am about to finish my PhD. This book was great help for preparing for interviews in the pharmaceutical industry. Especially if you do not know anything about drug development, clinical trials and GxP regulations it is worth the money!
