Awaiting publication


A comprehensive explanation of drug metabolism concepts and applications in drug development and cancer treatment

In the newly revised second edition of Drug Metabolism Handbook: Concepts and Applications in Cancer Research, a distinguished team of researchers delivers an incisive and robust exploration of the drug metabolism system and a well-illustrated and detailed explanation of the latest tools and techniques used in the research, pharmacology, and medicine. The book discusses the creation of new molecular entities, drug development, troubleshooting, and other highly relevant concepts, guiding readers through new applications in pharmaceutical research, development, and assessment.

The latest edition offers updated content on metabolism basics and the application of a variety of new techniques to cancer treatment, including mass spectrometry, imaging, metabolomics, and immunotherapy. It also offers in-depth case studies highlighting the role of metabolism in drug development.

Readers will also benefit from:

A thorough introduction to drug metabolism, including a historical perspective, factors affecting metabolism, and biotransformations in drug metabolism

Comprehensive discussions of technologies for in vitro and in vivo studies, including mass spectrometry and accelerating metabolite identification with mass spectrometry

In-depth explorations of drug interactions, including discussions of enzyme inhibition and the characterization of cytochrome P450 mechanism-based inhibition

Fulsome treatments of drug toxicity, including the role of drug metabolism in toxicity, and allergic reactions to drugs

Perfect for medicinal chemists, pharmaceutical scientists, and toxicologists, Drug Metabolism Handbook: Concepts and Applications in Cancer Research, Second Edition will also earn a place in the libraries of analytical chemists and drug discovery professionals.

Ala F. Nassar, PhD, is a faculty member at Yale University. He leads and executes ADME-Tox experiments supporting grant projects. He has served on numerous editorial boards and is the editor of the previous edition of Drug Metabolism Handbook: Concepts and Applications and Biotransformation and Metabolite Elucidation of Xenobiotics: Characterization and Identification. Paul F. Hollenberg, PhD, was the Maurice H. Seevers Professor and Chair of Pharmacology at the University of Michigan for more than 20 years. His research focused on the active sites of P450s and their catalytic function. He was cofounder and Associate Editor of Chemical Research in Toxicology and has served on numerous editorial boards and review panels. JoAnn Scatina, PhD has over 30 years of experience in Drug Metabolism and Preclinical Drug Development with leadership roles in both big pharma (Wyeth) and smaller biotech firms. She also provides expert drug development advice as a consultant to biotech and academic institutions. Soumen Kanti Manna, PhD, is an Associate Professor in the Biophysics and Structural Genomics Division of Saha Institute of Nuclear Physics, Kolkata. His doctoral work involved cytochrome P450 and other metalloproteins. His current research activities include unravelling of metabolic reprogramming associated with gene-environment interaction and cancer as well as RNA modification and biomarker discovery. Su Zeng, PhD, is a Professor and Director of Institute of Drug Metabolism and Pharmaceutical Analysis at College of Pharmaceutical Sciences, Zhejiang University. His research focuses on the regulation mechanism of drug ADME-Tox by using epigenetic models, transgenic cells expressing drug metabolizing enzymes, or transporters.
