Description: BRS Pharmacology is designed for medical students, dental students, and others in the health care professions. It is intended primarily to help students prepare for licensing examinations such as the USMLE. This book presents condensed and succint descriptions without the usual associated details. Written with a body systems approach, the book begins with a chapter devoted to general principles of drug action, followed by chapters concerned with drugs acting on the major body systems. Other chapters discuss autocoids, ergots, anti-inflammatory and immunosuppresive agents, drugs used to treat anemias and disorders of hemostatis, infectious diseases, cancer, and toxicology.
