Written with practitioners in mind, this new edition of Stephen’s Detection of Adverse Drug Reactions: Principle and Practice
continues to be one of the corner stones of the pharmaceutical medicine list. The classic text covers the issues and problems involved in the detection of adverse drug reactions (ADRs) throughout the life cycle of a medicine from animal studies through to clinical trials, its introduction to the market, followed by wide clinical use, and eventual decline in use or withdrawal. The sixth edition is completely revised and updated including five new chapters on pharmacogenomics, ADRs with herbal medicines, safety of medical devices, safety issues with oncology drugs, and economic aspects of ADRs. All tables and web information needed in order to practice are included to make this sixth edition a complete primer for the new practitioner and a reference for the more experienced.
