Drug Design, Volume X covers promising and current developments in drug design. The book discusses procedures as applied in the practice of drug design; the structural aspects of the structure-activity relationships of neuroleptics; and promising perspectives in the highly actual field of bioactive peptides.
The text also describes the application of the dynamic systems analysis to the antihypertensive drug action; polymeric drug delivery systems; and the design of biocompatible polymers. The structure-activity relationships of insect repellents as a basis for the design of such agents, as well as the approaches to the multivariate data analysis in structure-activity relationships, which is an essential aspect of drug design, are also encompassed.
Chemists, pharmacologists, bioengineers, and people involved in drug design and manufacture will find the book invaluable.
