The Organic Chemistry of Drug Design and Drug Action 3e

The Organic Chemistry

By Richard B. Silverman Ph.D Organic Chemistry, Mark W. Holladay

The Organic Chemistry of Drug Design and Drug Action 3e represents a unique approach to medicinal chemistry based on physical organic chemical principles and reaction mechanisms that rationalize drug action, which allows the reader to extrapolate those core principles and mechanisms to many related classes of drug molecules. This new edition reflects significant changes in the process of drug design over the last decade. It preserves the successful approach of the previous editions while including significant changes in format and coverage.

New to this edition:

Updates to all chapters, including new examples and references
Chapter 1 (Introduction): Completely rewritten and expanded as an overview of topics discussed in detail throughout the book
Chapter 2 (Lead Discovery and Lead Modification): Sections on sources of compounds for screening including library collections, virtual screening, and computational methods, as well as hit-to-lead and scaffold hopping; expanded sections on sources of lead compounds, fragment-based lead discovery, and molecular graphics; and deemphasized solid-phase synthesis and combinatorial chemistry
Chapter 3 (Receptors): Drug-receptor interactions, cation-? and halogen bonding; atropisomers; case history of the insomnia drug suvorexant
Chapter 4 (Enzymes): Expanded sections on enzyme catalysis in drug discovery and enzyme synthesis
Chapter 5 (Enzyme Inhibition and Inactivation): New case histories:
for competitive inhibition, the epidermal growth factor receptor tyrosine kinase inhibitor, erlotinib and Abelson kinase inhibitor, imatinib
for transition state analogue inhibition, the purine nucleoside phosphorylase inhibitors, forodesine and DADMe-ImmH, as well as the mechanism of the multisubstrate analog inhibitor isoniazid
for slow, tight-binding inhibition, the dipeptidyl peptidase-4 inhibitor, saxagliptin
Chapter 7 (Drug Resistance and Drug Synergism): This new chapter includes topics taken from two chapters in the previous edition, with many new examples
Chapter 8 (Drug Metabolism): Discussions of toxicophores and reactive metabolites
Chapter 9 (Prodrugs and Drug Delivery Systems): Discussion of antibody-drug conjugates
