Preface to the Fifth Edition This concise review of medical pharmacology is designed for medical students, dental stu- dents, and others in the health care professions. It is intended primarily to help students prepare for licensing examinations, such as the United States Medical Licensing Exami- nation Step 1 (USMLE) or other similar examinations. This book presents condensed and succinct descriptions of relevant and current Board-driven information pertaining to phar- macology without the usual associated details. It is not meant to be a substitute for the comprehensive presentation of information and difficult concepts found in standard phar- macology texts. ORGANIZATION The fifth edition begins with a chapter devoted to the general principles of drug action, fol- lowed by chapters concerned with drugs acting on the major body systems. Other chapters discuss autocoids, ergots, anti-inflammatory and immunosuppressive agents, drugs used to treat anemias and disorders of hemostasis, infectious diseases, cancer, and toxicology. Each chapter includes a presentation of specific drugs with a discussion of their gen- eral properties, mechanism of action, pharmacologic effects, therapeutic uses, and adverse effects. A drug list, tables, and figures summarize essential drug information included in all chapters. Clinically oriented, USMLE-style review questions and answers with explanations fol- low each chapter to help students assess their understanding of the information. Similarly, a comprehensive examination consisting of USMLE-style questions is included at the end of the book. This examination serves as a self-assessment tool to help students determine their fund of knowledge and diagnose any weaknesses in pharmacology.
