Summary Although somewhat labor intensive, Drug Discrimination (DD) is of enormous applicability to the understanding of drug action. Drug Discrimination: Applications to Medicinal Chemistry and Drug Studies covers the practical applications of drug discrimination studies for medicinal chemistry, including strengths and limitations versus other pharmacological methods for evaluating drug action. The book provides medicinal chemists with a fuller understanding of the nature and use of drug discrimination studies for evaluating the action of drugs while helping pharmacologists understand and better interact with medicinal chemists and drug designers when sharing pharmacologic data
