A panel of researchers and experts from leading universities and major pharmaceutical companies from all over the world systematically describe cutting-edge experimental protocols for the early in vitro evaluation of new chemical entities (NCE). These readily reproducible assays measure such critical parameters as physicochemical properties, adsorption, plasma binding, metabolism, drug interactions, and toxicity. By uncovering early in the discovery stage the defects that can eliminate candidate drugs from preclinical and clinical development, these techniques can save millions of dollars in time and effort.

Editorial Reviews

"This book covers most of the currently used techniques in lead optimization with respect to ADME and safety profiles. . .would be very useful addition to the library of any drug scientist interested in an introduction to these important methods. Each chapter treats its topic in a concise manner and provides ample references to lead the reader to more detailed information."-Doody's Health Sciences Book Review Journal"...very useful technically...invaluable to those changing roles or joining a pharmaceutical company, it is also very helpful for scientists in the biotech industry who are new to drug discovery." - Immunology News"The book provides a wealth of relevant information...the tome is neatly designed, well constructed and easy to read." - ISSX Newsletter"...a useful reference handbook for in vitro ADMET assays." - ChemBioChem
