Drugs and the Liver
A guide to drug handling in liver dysfunction
Edited by Penny North-Lewis
Liver disease is a widespread and increasing problem throughout the world, however little is published on how different types and degrees of liver dysfunction affect the body's ability to handle medicines.
This book aims:
- to enable the practitioner to assess liver function using biochemical markers, other tests, signs, symptoms and disease knowledge
- to identify which pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic parameters of a drug are likely to be affected by different types of liver disease
- to consider the impact of a drug's side effects on a patient with liver disease.
