4 STAR DOODY'S REVIEW!
"This 12th edition of the most authoritative book in pharmacology is the best both in content and physical appearance....This edition of Goodman & Gilman's 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."--Doody's Review Service

The most universally respected and read medical text in all of pharmacology, Goodman & Gilman’s The Pharmacological Basis of Therapeutics 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.

Goodman & Gilman’s The Pharmacological Basis of Therapeutics, 12e is divided into nine sections, covering:

  • General Principles
  • Neuropharmacology
  • Modulation of Cardiovascular Function
  • Inflammation, Immunomodulation, and Hematopoiesis
  • Endocrine Pharmacology
  • Gastrointestinal Pharmacology
  • Chemotherapy of Infectious Disease
  • Chemotherapy of Neoplastic Diseases
  • Special Systems Pharmacology

More than a textbook, Goodman & Gilman's is a working template for the effective and rational prescribing of drugs in daily practice.
