About this book


The number and complexity of possible adverse drug interactions in the treatment of infectious diseases has grown significantly in recent years, not only because of the many new drugs, but also because patients with complex diseases are often being treated with multidrug regimens. In Drug Interactions in Infectious Disease, leading experts in antimicrobial pharmacology comprehensively review-and summarize for rapid access-important drug interactions that occur in the treatment of infectious diseases. The authors explain the mechanisms of drug-drug and drug-food interactions, examine their clinical significance and consequences, and detail practical clinical approaches to their management. Numerous patient case studies bring the data into perspective and illuminate critical interactions. The design, conduct, and data analysis of drug interaction studies is also outlined for clinicians involved in research.
Comprehensive and highly practical, Drug Interactions in Infectious Disease offers health care professionals treating infectious diseases in their daily practice a comprehensive source of quickly accessible information about drug interaction problems, their mechanisms of action, and the best strategies for their management in busy patient care.
