Th e ability to use drugs safely and effectively is a defining characteristic of a good doctor. Th is ability is predicated upon an up-to-date knowledge of the ever-expanding pharmacopeia available to modern clinicians. In recent years the advent of translational and stratified approaches to the development of new medicines has accelerated the pace of change and resulted in a profusion of new knowledge across a wide range of therapeutic areas.
Th e extensive changes made to the text of this the ninth edition of Clinical Pharmacology and Therapeutics Lecture Notes reflect the enormous progress made in recent years. Th e new edition has been extensively revised and updated with significantly expanded sections covering areas which are developing rapidly such as immunopharmacology and cancer therapeutics. A particular emphasis has been placed upon practical aspects and clinical relevance throughout each chapter. Although the content of the text has been revised and refreshed, the objective of this book remains as set out in the preface to its first edition more than 30 years ago: to provide a brief, clearly written and up-to-date review of clinical pharmacology. As in earlier editions we have not attempted to be comprehensive, but have tried to emphasise the principles of clinical pharmacology, and topics which are of particular clinical importance. Recognition of the importance of prescribing skills has prompted a focus on their assessment in UK medical schools. Key prescribing points are emphasised in each chapter, and a series of questions covering commonly examined topics is included to allow self-assessment.
Th is is the first edition of Clinical Pharmacology
and Therapeutics Lecture Notes to have been prepared without Professor John Reid, former Regius Professor of Medicine and Therapeutics at the University of Glasgow. John’s immense contribution to Clinical Pharmacology extends far beyond his founding role and expert stewardship of this textbook over decades. Both of the current Editors gratefully acknowledge his expert mentorship and guidance which continues to influence the preparation of this text. We hope that the ninth edition will continue to succeed in the provision of a clear understanding not only of how but also when to use drugs.
