Outlining the latest developments in the design of enzyme inhibitors as potent drugs in the treatment of disease and infection, Volume 2 extends on the previous volume in providing a comprehensive coverage of more recently recognised target enzymes and their known inhibitors. It demonstrates how the drug designer uses all available information to develop a specific therapeutic agent. The text outlines the steps involved in developing these drugs - from initial inception to satisfactory marketing - a process thwart with potential difficulties and involving the skills ofchemists, biochemists, pharmacologists, and clinicians.A fascinating insight into the world of drug development, this second volume will certainly maintain the position as the text in this field.
