Product Description


"It is a state-of-the-art and mostly comprehensive overview of the field. It will be a valuable source of information for all those who want to start in the fields of drug metabolism and MS, e.g., PhD students, but also senior scientists, etc."  (Analytical and Bioanalytical Chemistry, 31 July 2012)

"Overall, Mass Spectrometry in Drug Metabolism and Pharmacokinetics is a valuable and interesting resource for a broad readership, including scientists starting to work in DMPK as well as undergraduate and graduate students getting involved in drug discovery and characterization
by means of MS." (J Am Soc Mass Spectrom, 2011)

"Placing the imaging technology in the context of the principles and applications of drug design, the book can serve as a textbook for either field." (Book New, 1 August 2011)


From the Back Cover

The pioneering guide to solving real-world problems in drug metabolism using mass spectrometry

Mass spectrometry has become the predominant analytical tool for drug metabolism and pharmacokinetics research in modern drug discovery and development. This book represents a coherent integration of all relevant background knowledge and detail surrounding the analytical technologies in this new multidisciplinary field. With chapters written by internationally renowned authors, the book provides details on:

  • Basic concepts of drug metabolism and pharmacokinetics
  • The principles and common practice of mass spectrometry in drug metabolism
  • Applications of new LC/MS techniques in drug metabolism and disposition

Mass Spectrometry in Drug Metabolism and Disposition examines fundamental aspects and practical considerations of using mass spectrometry in drug metabolism such as biotransformation reactions, metabolizing enzymes, transporters and drug-drug interactions, drug metabolism in drug design and development, theory and instrumentation of mass spectrometry, and LC/MS approaches to drug metabolism and mass spectral interpretation. Exciting details on new mass spectrometry technology and novel applications used in the frontiers of pharmaceutical research, including high-resolution mass spectrometry in metabolite identification, imaging mass spectrometry in drugtissue distribution, accelerator mass spectrometry in microdosing, as well as theanalyses of metabolomes, herbal medicine, biomarkers, and biologics by various mass spectrometers are also highlighted in the book.

This unique book serves as both a textbook for students as well as a comprehensive reference for pharmaceutical professionals, offering fresh and exciting solutions in the ongoing effort to design and develop drugs that are both effective and safe.
