Drug-Receptor Thermodynamics is the first book to provide in depth coverage of principles and applications of thermodynamic drug-receptor interactions. The book starts from familiar points, making thermodynamics accessible to anyone interested in how drugs work. The ideas presented cover general principles as well as laying the groundwork for new ways of examining drug action.
* covers an area of increasing interest and relevance in the field of drug design and discovery
* excellent explanation of why thermodynamics is at the heart of drug action
* contributions from many of the worlds leading experts in the field
Anyone interested in drug receptor interaction will find something of use in this book. It will be of particular relevance for pharmacologists, health science researchers and medicinal chemists.
