Enzyme Inhibition
in Drug Discovery and Development: The Good and the Bad
edited by Chuang Lu


Enzyme Inhibition in Drug Discovery and Development examines the scientific concepts and experimental approaches related to enzyme inhibition as applied in drug discovery and drug development.

Topics covered include:

The drug discovery process, including drug discovery strategy, medicinal chemistry, analytical chemistry, drug metabolism, pharmacokinetics, and safety biomarker assessment
The manipulations of drug metabolizing enzymes and transporters as well as the negative consequences, such as drug–drug interactions
The inhibition of several major drug target pathways, such as the GPCR pathway, the NFkB pathway, and the ion channel pathway
