Originally published by Bentham and now distributed by Elsevier,Recent Advances in Medicinal Chemistry, Volume 1covers leading-edge research and recent developments in rational drug design, synthetic chemistry, bioorganic chemistry, high-throughput screening, combinatorial chemistry, drug targets, and natural product research and structure-activity relationship studies. The fourteen updated reviews include unique experimental data and references, and each article highlights an important topic in current medicinal chemistry research. Topics covered include: aureolic acid group of anti-cancer antibiotics and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs; aromatase inhibitors in adjuvant endocrine treatment of early-stage breast cancer in postmenopausal women; Rho GTPases and statins in targeting and developing therapies for tumors; and more.

  • Edited and written by leading experts in medicinal chemistry research
  • Reviews recent advances in the field, including the characterization of inorganic nanomaterials as therapeutic vehicles
  • Covers a variety of topical areas, such as HPLC and in the analysis of tricyclic antidepressants in biological samples, and tannins and their influence on health
