Principles of Pharmacology: The Pathophysiologic Basis of Drug Therapy, Third Edition, is a primary textbook for a first course in pharmacology. It offers an integrated mechanism-based and systems-based approach, incorporating the cell biology, biochemistry, physiology, and pathophysiology of organ systems. The completely updated Third Edition features content reflecting current research findings, more than 400 full-color illustrations, Drug Summary Tables, and increased coverage of drug metabolism and the treatment of mycobacterial infections.

  • NEW: Incorporates full-color illustrations throughout, suiting the needs of visual learners and more effectively presenting concepts covered in the narrative  
  • NEW: Features increased coverage of drug metabolism and the treatment of mycobacterial infections, as well as updated cases and questions, all within the scope of clinical relevance
  • Provides additional resources via thePoint, including fully searchable eBook and faculty image bank, test generator, and PowerPoint slides
  • Represents more than a drug dictionary: Golan first establishes a foundation for normal physiology, then covers pathophysiology, and concludes with pharmacology for a thorough understanding of the connections between each
  • Features a signature pedagogical sequence for optimal learning and review: clinical scenario, questions, content, answers to questions, and conclusions
  • Delivers content appropriate for students through a uniquely collaborative authorship consisting of medical students and faculty
