Pharmacogenetics and pharmacogenomics are areas of significant importance at the interface of molecular genetics and psychopharmacology, with implications for drug development and clinical practice. This 2002 book provides a conceptual framework for understanding and studying the pharmacogenetics of psychotropic drugs, reviews advances in the field, and describes the established findings. Coverage extends to antipsychotics, antidepressants, mood stabilising, cognitive-enhancing and anxiolytic drugs. Chapters also examine the interface of pharmacogenetics with substance dependence and brain imaging, and consider its impact on the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries. This book defines the young field of pharmacogenetics as it applies to psychotropic drugs, and is therefore of interest to all clinicians and researchers working in this field.

Review of the hardback: '... this is a well-written book on a subject which is often found complicated and difficult ... the book will be informative for the reader who wants a general review of the field of psychopharmacogenetics, but will also be useful for the reader who wants updated information on a specific topic ...' European Journal of Clinical Pharmacology
