Goodman and Gilman's The Pharmacological Basis of Therapeutics 12e

Goodman and Gilman's The Pharmacological Basis of Therapeutics 12th Edition, by Laurence Brunton, Bruce Chabner and Bjorn Knollman continues to be the most authoritative and widely used resource bridging the discipline of pharmacology with therapeutics. Moreover, readers will find this edition to be substantially improved from past editions in both content and physical appearance.

The publication of the twelfth edition of this book is a testament to the vision and ideals of the original authors, Alfred Gilman and Louis Goodman, who, in 1941 set forth the principles that have guided the book through eleven editions: to correlate pharmacology with related medical sciences, to reinterpret the actions and uses of drugs in light of advances in medicine and the basic biomedical sciences, to emphasize the applications of pharmacodynamics to therapeutics, and to create a book that will be useful to students of pharmacology and to physicians. These precepts continue to guide the current edition.

The most universally respected and read medical text in all of pharmacology, this book represents the pinnacle of authority and accuracy in describing the actions and uses of therapeutic agents in relation to physiology and pathophysiology. Goodman & Gilman’s careful balance of basic science and clinical application has guided thousands of practitioners and students to a clear understanding of the drugs essential to preventing, diagnosing, and treating disease.

Enriched by a new full-color presentation and updated to reflect all critical new developments in drug action and drug-disease interaction, the twelfth edition includes more than 440 color illustrations depicting key principles and actions of specific pathways and therapeutic agents. The companion DVD includes all the images and tables in the text along with narrated animations.

This text is divided into nine sections, covering: General Principles, Neuropharmacology, Modulation of Cardiovascular Function, Inflammation, Immunomodulation, and Hematopoiesis. It is a working template for the effective and rational prescribing of drugs in daily practice.
