This reference book contains a comprehensive selection of the most frequently used assays for reliably detecting pharmacological effects of potential drugs including cardiovascular, analgesic, endocrine, psychotropic, respiratory, renal, and immunomodulatory activities. Each of the over 700 assays comprises a detailed protocol with the purpose and rationale of the method, a critical assessment of the results and their pharmacological and clinical relevance. Identification of specific tests is facilitated by the enclosed CD-ROM which allows for a quick full-text research. An appendix with guidelines and legal regulations for animal experiments in various countries will help to plan experiments properly in accordance with the welfare of the laboratory animals.

He taught as Professor of Pharmacology and Toxicology at the Universities Marburg and Frankfurt.

His latest position was Head of the Decision Board on Pharmaceutical Development. At present, he is working as a Consultant for Pharmaceutical and Medical Research and Development. His scientific work was devoted to the elaboration of new pharmacological methods, pharmacology of plant extracts from various countries, pharmacology of steroid hormones, pharmacology of peptide hormones, pharmacology of cardiac glycosides, biomechanics and biochemistry of connective tissue, experimental gerontology, experimental dermatology, and development procedures for pharmaceutical products. H. Gerhard Vogel has published more than 160 papers, mainly on new pharmacological methods, on endocrinology (in particular peptide endocrinology), biomechanics and biochemistry of connective tissue, such as skin and bone, and on other topics. He is a member of many international and national scientific societies and a co-editor and contributor to several scientific textbooks. Together with Wolfgang H. Vogel he published the first edition of Drug Discovery and Evaluation: Pharmacological Assays (Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg New York) in 1997. The second completely revised, updated and enlarged edition with many contributions by his colleagues was published in 2002. The third edition of that work will appear in late 2007. He is also Editor-in-Chief of the book Drug Discovery and Evaluation: Safety and Pharmacokinetic Assays, which was published at Springer as well.

Review:

From the reviews of the second edition: "Pharmacological studies are a pivotal but sometimes neglected area ... . Failure to evaluate your candidate compound in appropriate models will greatly reduce your chances of success ... . This excellent reference book will assist you in avoiding this fate. ... Although the update has increased the book from around 750 to 1400 pages, it is still indexed in a clear, concise way making access to each assay easy. ... I would thoroughly recommend this book. ... it is a well-worth, long term investment." (Paul Baldrick, British Toxicology Society Newsletter, Issue 20, 2002) "The second edition of ‘Drug Discovery and Evaluation’ presents an expanded and updated version of one of the classic reference handbooks on pharmacological assays. ... Each assay description is sufficiently outlined and equipped with outstanding literature references. ... A newly included CD-ROM provides easy identification of tests, guidelines and even legal regulations for animal experiments. ... This comprehensive classical reference handbook mainly addresses the needs of pharmacological institutes and research groups working in this area." (Dr. Jürg Gertsch, BioWorld, Issue 2, 2003)
