Basic and Clinical Pharmacology 14th Edition
by Bertram Katzung November 2017
Organized to reflect the syllabus in many pharmacology courses and in integrated curricula, Basic & Clinical Pharmacology, Fourteenth Edition covers the important concepts students need to know about the science of pharmacology and its application to clinical practice.
Selection of the subject matter and order of its presentation are based on the authors’ many years’ experience in teaching this material to thousands of medical, pharmacy, dental, podiatry, nursing, and other health science students.
To be as clinically relevant as possible, the book includes sections that specifically address the clinical choice and use of drugs in patients and the monitoring of their effects, and case studies that introduce clinical problems in many chapters. Presented in full color and enhanced by more than three hundred illustrations (many new to this edition), Basic & Clinical Pharmacology features numerous summary tables and diagrams that encapsulate important information.
- Student-acclaimed summary tables conclude each chapter
- Everything students need to know about the science of pharmacology and its application to clinical practice
- Strong emphasis on drug groups and prototypes
- NEW! 100 new drug tables
- Includes 330 full-color illustrations, case studies, and chapter-ending summary tables
- Organized to reflect the syllabus of pharmacology courses

The Basic and Clinical Pharmacology 14th Edition continues the extensive use of full-color illustrations and expanded coverage of transporters, pharmacogenomics, and new drugs of all types emphasized in prior editions. In addition, it reflects the major expansion of large-molecule drugs in the pharmacopeia, with numerous new monoclonal antibodies and other biologic agents.
Case studies accompany most chapters, and answers to questions posed in the case studies appear at the end of each chapter. The book is designed to provide a comprehensive, authoritative, and readable pharmacology textbook for students in the health sciences. Frequent revision is necessary to keep pace with the rapid changes in pharmacology and therapeutics; the 2–3 year revision cycle of this text is among the shortest in the field, and the avail-ability of an online version provides even greater currency. The book also offers special features that make it a useful reference for house officers and practicing clinicians. Password: BACP14E+PDFLibrary.Net
