About this deal

Some drugs act as false substrates or inhibitors for certain transport systems (bottom right) or enzymes (bottom left). This edition features new and revised illustrations, additional pedagogical tools, and enhanced online content.

For example, acetylcholine is a transmitter substance released from motor nerve endings; it activates receptors in skeletal muscle, initiating a sequence of events that results in contraction of the muscle.Covering a wide range of topics, books in the at a Glance series are ideal as introductory texts for teaching, learning and revision, and are useful throughout university and beyond. Hormones are chemicals released into the bloodstream; they produce their physiological effects on tissues possessing the necessary specific hormone receptors. Now in its ninth edition, this leading guide has been thoroughly updated to reflect current guidelines and drug information.

This incredibly useful book summarises the core principles of the mode of action of drugs and puts this information within the context of body systems and specific clinical problems. The author discusses the mechanisms of action of each drug, indicating the therapeutics of choice for specific conditions. I also feel that I have covered the essentials of the relevant topic just by going through a double page! G‐protein‐coupled receptors (see below) form a family of receptors with seven membrane‐spanning helices.Covering a wide range of topics, ideal as introductory texts for teaching, learning and revision, and are useful throughout university and beyond. I would recommend this book for medical students, science students and scientists who require a succinct account of pharmacology.
