The use of appropriate models can minimize the number of drug candidates that later fail in human trials by accurately predicting the efficacy and the toxicity of each compound. This can be improved with more informed selection of the appropriate models. This book provides disorder-specific guidelines for understanding the selection and use of non-human models for trials in the drug discovery and development process. "Reward Deficit Disorders" is written for researchers in both academia and the pharmaceutical industry who use animal models in research and development of drugs for reward deficit disorders such as anti-obesity drugs, medication for heroin and cocaine addiction and more.
This is the third volume in the three volume-set, Animal and Translational Models for CNS Drug Discovery 978-0-12-373861-5, and is also available for purchase individually.
