This book charts the history and development of approximately 150 pharmaceuticals, presenting the initial information by listing the drug prototypes in five major groups: plant products, mammalian products, minerals, serendipitous discoveries, and agents developed from screening programs. Within each group more specific categories are defined in order to elucidate further how prototypes have been successfully exploited in the past.Review:
"...DRUG PROTOTYPES is a splendid reference book--the clear formulae and current uses are particularly useful--and a good book to dip into." (Royal Society of Chemistry-Historical Group Newsletter, January 1998)
