A Review of A Textbook of Medicinal Chemistry by Surendra N Pandeya

A Review of A Textbook of Medicinal Chemistry by Surendra N Pandeya

Medicinal chemistry is a branch of chemistry that deals with the design, synthesis and evaluation of drugs for various diseases. It is an interdisciplinary field that combines aspects of organic chemistry, biochemistry, pharmacology and molecular biology. A Textbook of Medicinal Chemistry by Surendra N Pandeya is a comprehensive book that covers the basic principles and applications of medicinal chemistry in a systematic and lucid manner.


The book is divided into two volumes, each containing 16 chapters. The first volume focuses on the synthetic aspects of medicinal chemistry, such as drug design strategies, stereochemistry, drug metabolism, prodrugs and drug delivery systems. The second volume covers the biochemical aspects of medicinal chemistry, such as receptors, enzymes, hormones, neurotransmitters and nucleic acids. The book also discusses the structure-activity relationships and mechanisms of action of various classes of drugs, such as analgesics, antipyretics, anti-inflammatory agents, antihistamines, antihypertensives, antidiabetics, anticancer agents and antibiotics.

The book is written in a clear and concise style, with numerous examples, figures, tables and references. The book also includes self-assessment questions and exercises at the end of each chapter to test the understanding of the readers. The book is suitable for undergraduate and postgraduate students of pharmacy, chemistry and related disciplines. It is also a useful reference for researchers and professionals in the field of medicinal chemistry.

The book is well-organized and updated with the latest developments and trends in medicinal chemistry. It covers both the traditional and emerging modalities of drug discovery, such as small molecules, peptides, antibodies, nucleic acids and gene therapies. It also provides insights into the challenges and opportunities of drug discovery in the era of big data, artificial intelligence and precision medicine. The book is enriched with case studies, examples and applications from various therapeutic areas, such as infectious diseases, cardiovascular diseases, neurological disorders, metabolic diseases and oncology.

The book is intended to serve as a handbook for medicinal chemists and other professionals involved in drug discovery and development. It is also a valuable resource for students and teachers of medicinal chemistry, pharmacy, pharmacology and related disciplines. The book is written by experts from academia, industry and charity organizations, who share their knowledge and experience in a clear and accessible manner. The book is edited by Simon E Ward, Andrew Davis and Darren V S Green, who are renowned leaders and pioneers in the field of medicinal chemistry.

The Handbook of Medicinal Chemistry is a must-have book for anyone who wants to learn more about the principles and practice of medicinal chemistry. It is a comprehensive and authoritative guide that covers all aspects of drug discovery from concept to clinic. It is a book that will inspire and inform the current and future generations of medicinal chemists. 0efd9a6b88
