A high proportion of drugs currently coming to market exert their action in the body by inhibiting a target enzyme involved in a particular body function or in a bacterium, protozoon, or virus causing an infection. This book extends the previous volume in providing a comprehensive coverage of more recently recognized target enzymes and their known inhibitors and, within this framework of knowledge, demonstrates how the drug designer uses all available information to develop a specific therapeutic agent. Drug design is an interdisciplinary art; this text illustrates the pathway followed from the initial design concept and synthesis of an inhibitor, through its in vitro and in vivo assessments, to clinical trial -- a process involving chemists, biochemists, pharmacologists, and clinicians.
