Description for Biotransformation and Metabolite Elucidation of Xenobiotics: Characterization and Identification Hardcover. Considerable attention has been focused recently on the potential role of human drug metabolites in drug safety and on how to provide a risk assessment for these molecules using preclinical safety models. Editor(s): Nassar, Ala F. Num Pages: 328 pages, Illustrations. BIC Classification: PSAG. Category: (P) Professional & Vocational; (UP) Postgraduate, Research & Scholarly. Dimension: 233 x 164 x 23. Weight in Grams: 644.
The goal of this book is to improve the readers' knowledge of metabolite elucidation in drug metabolism by exposing them to in depth coverage of the biotransformation of xenobiotics, strategies for identifying and characterizing metabolites, FDA guidelines, and case studies on how to improve the decision-making process in structural modification of drug candidates to reduce toxicity.

The book consists of 8 chapters; it first provides an introduction on biotransformation of xenobiotics, and then presents modern approaches and strategies for dealing with metabolite characterization, using tools such as LC-MS, H-D exchange, stable isotopes LC-MS-NMR, and radiolabeled compounds. Also, strategies for ... Read more

Reviews for Biotransformation and Metabolite Elucidation of Xenobiotics: Characterization and Identification
"Contributors mostly from pharmaceutical companies provide a systematic introduction to characterizing metabolites, which has become an important element in drug discovery. They write for scientists involved in designing, developing, and advancing metabolic characterizations for drug discovery and development, and for researchers and students in fields that might call for such characterizations." (Book News Inc., February 2011)
