    Thumbs up Basic and Clinical Pharmacology, 10th. Edition.

    Basic and Clinical Pharmacology
    by Bertram G. Katzung

    Pages: 930
    Publisher: McGraw-Hill Companies
    Edition: 10th., 2006
    Language: English
    ISBN: 978-0071451536


    This edition marks the 25th year that Basic and Clinical Pharmacology by Katzung has been available for teaching students pharmacology. This remains the gold standard of useable texts for teaching pharmacology to medical students. In my opinion, this is the best edition.
    Purpose: The goals are to provide a complete, authoritative, current, and readable pharmacology textbook for students in health sciences. Proof of the book's achievement of these goals is its widespread use as a required book for pharmacology courses around the world.
    Audience: "This book has been, and will continue to be, used by thousands of medical, pharmacology, podiatry, nursing, and other health professions students. It is also valuable for residents and practicing physicians. "
    Features: All the typical topics in a survey pharmacology course are covered and the book is designed to be useful in traditional pharmacology courses as well as integrated organ system curricula. The general format of the book has not changed but the font clarity and figure colorations are far superior to earlier editions. There have been major revisions of the chapters on prostaglandins, nitric oxide, anti-inflammatory drugs, hypothalamic and pituitary hormones, antidiabetic drugs, and immunopharmacology. Moreover, descriptions of new drugs released through August 2006 are included, as well as major advances in science such as the use of knockout and knockin mice as research tools and advances in receptors and transporters.
    Assessment: I continue to use this book as a required resource for all courses that I teach to medical and allied health professions students. Not only does this serve as an authoritative and readable text, but there are also many related resources (Katzung & Trevor's Pharmacology Examination and Board Review, 7th edition, Trevor et al. (McGraw-Hill, 2004) and USMLE Road Map: Pharmacology, Katzung et al. (McGraw-Hill, 2003)) that can be used as companions for students to focus on high yield material needed for course examinations and USMLE Step Examinations. I also use this as the major resource for an elective offering in Advanced Pharmacology for third and fourth year medical students. This book continues to be the standard that all other pharmacology books attempt to emulate.
