Computational methods are transforming the work of chemical and pharmaceutical laboratories. Increasingly faster and more exact simulation algorithms have made quantum chemistry a valuable tool in the search for active substances. Written by a team of leading international quantum chemists, this book is aimed at both beginners as well as experienced users of quantum chemical methods. All commonly used quantum chemical methods are treated here, including Density Functional Theory, quantum and molecular mechanical approaches. Numerous examples illustrate the use of these methods for dealing with problems in pharmaceutical practice, whether the study of inhibitor binding, identifying the surface load of active substances or deriving molecular descriptors using quantum chemical tools. For anyone striving to stay ahead in this rapidly evolving field.

Accounts in Drug Discovery describes recent case studies in medicinal chemistry with a particular emphasis on how the inevitable problems that arise during any project can be surmounted or overcome. The Editors cover a wide range of therapeutic areas and medicinal chemistry strategies, including lead optimization starting from high-throughput screening "hits" as well as rational, structure-based design. The chapters include "follow-ons" and "next generation" compounds that aim to improve upon first-generation agents. This volume surveys the range of challenges commonly faced by medicinal chemistry researchers, including the optimization of metabolism and pharmacokinetics, toxicology, pharmaceutics and pharmacology, including proof-of-concept in the clinic for novel biological targets. The case studies include medicinal chemistry stories on recently approved and marketed drugs, but also chronicle "near-misses," i.e. exemplary compounds that may have proceeded well into the clinic but for various reasons did not result in a successful registration. As the vast majority of projects fail prior to registration, much can be learned from such narratives. By sharing a wide range of drug discovery experiences and information across the community of medicinal chemists in both industry and academia, the Editors believe that these accounts will provide insights into the art of medicinal chemistry as it is currently practiced and will help to serve the needs of active medicinal chemists.

The Practice of Medicinal Chemistry fills a gap in the list of available medicinal chemistry literature. It is a single-volume source on the practical aspects of medicinal chemistry. Considered ""the Bible"" by medicinal chemists, the book emphasizes the methods that chemists use to conduct their research and design new drug entities. It serves as a practical handbook about the drug discovery process, from conception of the molecules to drug production. The first part of the book covers the background of the subject matter, which includes the definition and history of medicinal chemistry, the measurement of biological activities, and the main phases of drug activity. The second part of the book presents the road to discovering a new lead compound and creating a working hypothesis. The main parts of the book discuss the optimization of the lead compound in terms of potency, selectivity, and safety. The Practice of Medicinal Chemistry can be considered a ""first-read"" or ""bedside book"" for readers who are embarking on a career in medicinal chemistry. NEW TO THIS EDITION: * Focus on chemoinformatics and drug discovery * Enhanced pedagogical features * New chapters including: - Drug absorption and transport - Multi-target drugs * Updates on hot new areas: NEW! Drug discovery and the latest techniques NEW! How potential drugs can move through the drug discovery/ development phases more quickly NEW! Chemoinformatics

This book collects in one single volume, the practical aspects of Medicinal Chemistry, seen from a chemical point of view, including the wealth of information which chemists accumulate over a career, but generally is never organized and presented in a coherent form in print. Emphasis is given to how medicinal chemists conduct their search for, and design of, new drug entities. In contrast to other books on the market, it focuses on the chemistry, rather than pharmacological concepts or description of the various therapeutic classes of drugs. It should become a standard reference on the tools available to medicinal chemists when designing new drugs. Key Features * These aspects are covered by: * Specific chapters devoted to the discovery of new lead compounds, including combinatorial chemistry * Clearly written chapters on modern topics such as stereochemical aspects of drug action, the use of X-ray structures of receptors and enzymes in drug discovery, and the contribution of molecular biology to drug discovery * Guidelines and operational strategems allowing identification of the portions of the molecule which are important for potency * The particular emphasis given to the three-dimensional aspects of the drug-receptor interactions, to the design of peptidomimetic drugs and to the control of the agonist-antagonist transition * Chemical solutions to solubility and to formulation problems These sections cover perhaps the most neglected areas in medicinal chemistry books * Development of new drugs: legal and economic aspects, constitutes another important area in which chemists are almost wholly self taught following their entry into industry
