 About The Book  

  This book presents a complete picture of all the aspects of drug designing and development. The book has been divided into five sections. Section A gives the introduction of the subject in first two chapters. Section B deals with four chapters on structural designing of molecules by means of chemical modifications. Section C covers three chapters dedicated to designing of enzyme inhibitors and peptidomimetics. Section D is the most sought-after section, devoted to theoretical designing of drugs, including all the techniques involving molecular modeling. Contents of this section are covered in eight chapters covering all the theoretical aspects of drug designing. Section E lists two special chapters, one on enzyme kinetics and the other on the basics of computational chemistry.

   Being a comprehensive book on the subject of drug designing, all the aspects of drug designing given in the revised syllabi of B.Pharm and M.Pharm by PCI, are covered in this book. Any future revision of syllabi covering the subject of drug design is also taken care by full coverage of the subject in this book.
