Medicinal Chemistry of Anticancer Drugs, Second Edition, provides an updated treatment from the point of view of medicinal chemistry and drug design, focusing on the mechanism of action of antitumor drugs from the molecular level, and on the relationship between chemical structure and chemical and biochemical reactivity of antitumor agents. Antitumor chemotherapy is a very active field of research, and a huge amount of information on the topic is generated every year. Cytotoxic chemotherapy is gradually being supplemented by a new generation of drugs that recognize specific targets on the surface or inside cancer cells, and resistance to antitumor drugs continues to be investigated. While these therapies are in their infancy, they hold promise of more effective therapies with fewer side effects. Although many books are available that deal with clinical aspects of cancer chemotherapy, this book provides a sorely needed update from the point of view of medicinal chemistry and drug design. Presents information in a clear and concise way using a large number of figures Historical background provides insights on how the process of drug discovery in the anticancer field has evolved Extensive references to primary literature

Advances in Anticancer Agents in Medicinal Chemistry is an exciting eBook series comprising a selection of updated articles previously published in the peer-reviewed journal Anti-Cancer Agents in Medicinal Chemistry. The first volume gathers reviews of many classes of drugs of contemporary interest for cancer therapy and is devoted to small molecules inhibitors of various proteins involved in cancer development such as Casein kinase 2 (CK2), Protein kinase B (PKB), mTOR, Hsp90, P-glycoprotein (P-gp), Kinesin spindle protein (KSP), Cyclooxygenase 2 (COX-2), Histone deacetylase enzymes (HDACs) and Topoisomerase I. Advances in Anticancer Agents in Medicinal Chemistry will be of particular interest to readers interested in anti cancer drug therapy as the series provides additional value to scientific research by entailing an approach of bringing relevant reviews up-to-date and thus more valuable for reference purposes.

Medicinal Chemistry - Fusion of Traditional and Western Medicine is a textbook intended for students taking courses in the various fields of medicinal chemistry, pharmacy, medical and dental programs. Moreover, people working in the pharmaceutical industry and doctors preparing for Medical Board Exams will also find it useful. Since, new drugs are being developed by multi-disciplinary teams; this E-Book describes new paradigms that are emerging in modern biology, biochemistry and medicine. It is therefore a fusion of traditional and western medicine and between systems thinking and reductionist thinking. Readers will learn about how new drugs are investigated, developed and eventually approved by the FDA. The book also includes important information about cGMP, GLP and the FDA regulatory requirements, the importance of environmental toxins, such as bisphenol A (BPA) and perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOAA) in autoimmune diseases and health. This book offers exceptional value in its descriptions of RNA, epigenetics, toxicology, new drug development, genetically modified organisms and analytical chemistry that cannot be found in other textbooks.
