Aus erster Hand berichten die Autoren der Beiträge dieses Bandes, mit welchen Strategien in der kommerziellen Forschung nach Wirkstoffen gegen Infektionskrankheiten gesucht wird. Dabei konzentrieren sie sich in erster Linie auf Parasitosen, berücksichtigen aber auch bakterielle Infektionen. Hochinteressante Informationen, die man in dieser Form nirgends findet! Addressing parasitic diseases and those caused by bacteria, this much needed reference and handbook provides a unique insight into the approach adopted by commercial science towards infectious diseases, including the work of medicinal chemists. Many of the authors are scientists with hands-on experience of drug discovery units within the pharmaceutical industry. In addition, the text covers efforts towards drug development in infectious diseases from academic groups and non profit organizations.
