Though Pharmacotherapy continues to be complex, it never ceases to be interesting.
Pharmacotherapy is frequently combined with other treatment methods, such as physical therapy and dietotherapy. Drugs are often used in various combinations.
We have two major objectives in writing this book; firstly, to strike a balance between developments in Pharmacotherapy research and the facts that researchers must absorb, and secondly, to link scientific advances with clinical practice so that the management of diseases can be based on sound physiological concepts. Therefore, this book is a book that everybody involved in Pharmacotherapy must have. Each chapter has been reviewed and revised and new authors have brought up‐to‐date research to make the book better informative, illustrative, and easy to read.
The intent of this book is to provide an overview of current conceptualizations of Pharmacotherapy. The book focuses on three major areas; diagnosis, treatment, and prevention for a wide array of diseases; Cognitive and Psychological disorders (Schizophrenia and Nicotine addiction), Inflammatory disorders (New Chemical antiinflammatory and Immunotherapy), updated antihypertensive therapy and healing of ulcers with venous origin. A separate chapter is dedicated to the rationality of drug use in earthquake injuries. The last chapter deals with Imaging of potential therapeutic or diagnostic agents in animal models in the early stage of research. This is an important step towards pre‐clinical and clinical trials in human.
We hope this book is useful to a wide range of people, from students first learning about Pharmacotherapy, to advanced clinicians and researchers who are looking for a review of current treatments and conceptualizations of the condition. It is our hope that this book may motivate readers to approach the evidence on Pharmacotherapy with an open mind, and thereby spark an interest in making further contributions to the current scientific debate and treatment development efforts.
