Martindale: The Complete Drug Reference

Thirty-eighth edition

Edited by Alison Brayfield

Martindale: The Complete Drug Reference provides reliable, unbiased and evaluated information on drugs and medicines used throughout the world. Based on published information and extensively referenced, Martindale develops as the body of knowledge on existing drugs grows.
