Dieses praxisnahe Handbuch spricht Aspekte sowohl der Wirksamkeit als auch der Sicherheit von Wirkstoffen an und erleichtert Ihnen damit die Entscheidung im Zuge einer Risiko/Nutzen-Bewertung im frühen Stadium des Entwicklungsprozesses. Herangezogen werden sowohl in-vitro-Verfahren als auch geeignete Computerprogramme. The only reference on current methods to generate pharmacokinetic and safety profiles of drug candidates, as well as how they must be balanced against one other for the best selection of candidates for further development.
Following a brief introduction to the necessities of filtering and risk assessment of potential new drug molecules before actual drug development, the two equally important aspects of pharmacological (ADME) and safety (toxicity) profiling are covered in separate parts.
The ADME section covers the profiling of basic physicochemical parameters, such as solubility and permeability, as well as more complex traits, such as the likelihood of drug-drug interactions, metabolic clearance and protein binding properties.
The toxicology part addresses, among others, recent advances in early genetic toxicity testing, bioactivation screening, organ-specific toxicity assays for liver, heart, kidney and blood, as well as profiling for autoimmune reactions.
By addressing both drug efficiency and drug safety, this modern practical reference shows readers how each individual aspect figures in shaping the key decisions on which the entire drug development process hinges. In short, this is a complete toolbox for assessing the risk/benefit ratio for any novel compound during the early drug development stages, using both in vitro and in silico methods.
Both editors are based at one of the leading research-driven pharmaceutical companies, and the authors have been recruited from numerous other global players in the field.
Invaluable know-how for every medicinal chemist and drug developer.

Hugo Kubinyi gehört seit 1985 der BASF AG an, wo Kombinatorische Chemie, Molecular Modelling und Wirkstoffdesign zu seinen Tätigkeitsfeldern zählten. Sein Spezialgebiet sind Struktur-Wirkungs-Beziehungen und QSAR-Methoden.Gerd Folkers is professor of pharmaceutical chemistry at the ETH Zürich since 1991. He studied pharmacy at the University of Bonn and earned his Ph.D. on structure-activity relationships of desapurines. He then moved to the University of Tübingen, where he completed his habilitation in pharmaceutical chemistry. During a stay with H.-D. Hoeltje in Bern, he studied new research methods in computer-aided molecular design and expanded this knowledge during other stays with T. Blundell at the Birkbeck College and E. Meyer at Texas A&M University.The focus of his research is the molecular interaction between drugs and their binding sites. Besides his work on the molecular mechanism of "conventional" nucleoside therapeutics against virus infections and cancer, his special interest has shifted to immuno-therapeutics.
