Brody’s Human Pharmacology: Mechanism-Based Therapeutics

The sixth edition of Brody’s Human Pharmacology has been appropriately subtitled Mechanism-Based Therapeutics and has been designed to provide students in all health professions with pharmacological information and its clinical relevance.
A major goal of this edition has been to present information in the clearest and most concise manner, using prototypical drugs to illustrate basic mechanisms and boxes and tables to emphasize key points and relevant clinical information, with many new figures within each section.
Sections were created with a focus on therapeutics, and two new sections were added to this edition, including one on drug therapy for pain management and another on the treatment of inflammatory, allergic, and immunological disorders. In addition, several new chapters have been added to this edition including:
• A chapter on pharmacogenetics in the Therapeutic Principles Section, critical in this era of personalized medicine
• A chapter on the cannabinoids in the Pain Management Section, particularly important in light of the opioid crisis
• A chapter focused on drugs for the treatment of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder in the Central Nervous System Section, because these medications are being prescribed to an increasing number of children
• A chapter on drug treatment for human immunodeficiency virus and related opportunistic infections in the Chemotherapy Section, because
millions of individuals are dying each year from AIDS-related illnesses.
