Each section contains a clear illustration depicting the major drugs and their interactions within a particular body system and a concise account of the topic. This useful book summarises the core principles of the mode of action od drugs and puts this information within the context of body systems and specific clinical problems.I shan't waste space here by copying the contents list as you can view that and more, for yourself, by using the excellent 'Look inside' feature. However, most drugs produce their effects by acting on specific protein molecules, usually located in the cell membrane. Kinase‐linked receptors are surface receptors that possess (usually) intrinsic tyrosine kinase activity. Following on from the success of the previous three editions, Professor Michael Neal, one of the great teachers of medical pharmacology, has extensively revised and updated the fourth editon to take account of the rapid developments in the field.

The book is very comprehensive and groups drugs by function, giving a background and recap to conditions and the mechanism of the drugs. It′s a well–rounded book with good explanations of how drugs produce their effects and an outline of their uses. I do have friends and family members who are practicing doctors and who use this book though, so the fact that they do would suggest an endorsement of its usefulness.Nuclear receptors for steroid hormones ( Chapter 34) and thyroid hormones ( Chapter 35) are present in the cell nucleus and regulate transcription and thus protein synthesis. This well illustrated volume, in the "At a Glance" series, is suitable for undergraduate medical and pharmacology students seeking a text for revision. The "At a Glance" series has expanded rapidly over the last few years, and this book remains the best of the lot. Each subject is covered over two-pages, with visuals and information on one page and drugs on the other. The closer the fit and the greater the number of bonds (usually noncovalent), the stronger will be the attractive forces between them, and the higher the affinity of the drug for the receptor.

Some drugs act as false substrates or inhibitors for certain transport systems (bottom right) or enzymes (bottom left).
