Drugs: Synonyms and Properties provides comprehensive coverage ofthe 10,000 drugs currently in common use worldwide. Its overallorganization and inclusion of detailed chemical information fillsan important gap in drug information. This reference, edited by aworld-renowned authority in drug design and chemical informationand now in its second edition, has become one of the bibles ofpharmaceutical research and application.

This book organizes the 10,000 drugs currently in use bytherapeutic category. Therefore all tranquilizers, allantidepressants, or all anorexic agents, for example, are groupedtogether. In all, 204 categories are represented. This arrangementmeans that all drugs in a given category can be reviewed veryeasily and their relative properties compared quickly.

A key component of this reference is the extensive coverage ofsynonyms. The book includes an index of over 30,000 drug synonymsand trade names with a cross-reference to their main entry. Thisextraordinarily comprehensive view of trade names and genericsynonyms makes Drugs: Synonyms and Properties one of the world'smost exhaustive references in its field.

For each main entry, the following information is provided:chemical name and a list of trade names and synonyms; the ChemicalAbstracts Service (CAS) Registry Number; the European Inventory ofExisting Commercial Chemical Substances (EINECS) Number; the MerckIndex (Twelfth Edition) Number; the physical properties of eachcompound; and the known biological activity and indicatedapplications. Indexes, including a master index of names andsynonyms, and of manufacturers and suppliers, are appended.

This reference will be invaluable to research chemists, biologists,and physicians and to anyone interested in drugs who, starting witha single synonym for a drug, will be able to quickly find athumbnail sketch of the essential information concerning thatagent.

About the Author:

G W A Milne was a Senior Researcher at the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, MD, USA for 35 years where he worked on the use of spectroscopy for structure determination of organic compounds, and on molecular modeling in the design of drugs for the treatment of cancer and AIDS. From 1980 until 1998 he worked in molecular modeling and information technology at the National Cancer Institute, one of the NIH Institutes. He has been active for many years in the fields of chemical information and chemical computation and is the Editor of the American Chemical Society's Journal of Chemical Information and Computer Science and Gardner's Chemical Synonyms and Trade Names, Eleventh Edition (Ashgate).

From Library Journal:

Compiled by Milne, editor of the Journal of Chemical Information and Computer Sciences, this reference provides a classified arrangement of 10,000 drugs. Each entry includes the substance's molecular formula; its chemical, generic, and brand-name synonyms; and its manufacturer or supplier. There is a stronger emphasis on synonyms, with properties reported to a lesser degree. Melting and boiling points, optical rotation, density, UV absorption, solubility, and acute toxicity data are presented "whenever possible," but many of the entries lack such data. Each drug is classified into one or more of 204 therapeutic categories (which facilitates browsing for similar medications) and is listed by the most common name, usually the U.S. Adopted Name from the United States Pharmacopeia (USP). When available, the Chemical Abstracts Service Registry Number, European Inventory of Existing Commercial Chemical Substances (EINECS) number, and monograph number from the 12th edition of the Merck Index are also listed. Approximately 70 percent of the 14,000 drugs in the USP are included, and this second edition of Drugs adds 50 new entries since the first edition was published in 2000. Although going to the trouble to release a new edition with only .5 percent more content would seem to indicate a great concern for currency, some drugs still are not represented. (For example, Glimepiride, an antidiabetic approved by the FDA in 1995, does not appear in either edition.) This reference, therefore, seems most useful as an adjunct to other popular works, such as the Merck Index, the Physicians' Desk Reference, or the more advanced USP. An appropriate purchase for academic libraries and larger public library science departments, especially if the first edition was not purchased. Wade M. Lee, Univ. of Toledo, OH
