About this book

The revised and up-to-date third edition of Drug Interactions in Infectious Diseases delivers a text that will enhance your clinical knowledge of the complex mechanisms, risks, and consequences of drug interactions associated with antimicrobials, infection, and inflammation.  The third edition features five new chapters that cover material not addressed in previous editions.  These new chapters describe interactions with a number of drug classes such as non-HIV antiviral, antimalarial, antiparasitic, antihelmintic,  macrolide, azalide and ketolide agents.  A novel chapter on probe cocktail studies has been included to highlight an important research tool for drug development.  These chapters address material that cannot be retrieved easily in the medical literature.  The highly acclaimed food-drug interactions as well as the study design and analysis chapters remain definitive references.  The newly written drug-cytokine interaction highlights the need for our improved understanding of the complex interrelationship of acute infection, inflammation, and the risk of drug interactions.  Informative tables on specific drug-drug interactions are provided throughout the chapters as a quick clinical resource.

The Third Edition of Drug Interactions in Infectious Diseases is a distillation of relevant drug interactions associated with antimicrobials, infection, and inflammation.  This concise review of the mechanisms and strategies to manage drug interactions should be valuable to all health care practitioners.

Reviews

From the book reviews:

“This is an update of a comprehensive 2005 resource on basic and in-depth information on drug-drug, drug-food, and drug-cytokine interactions associated with antimicrobials. … This is a valuable resource for infectious disease clinicians, pharmacists, or other healthcare professionals caring for patients with infectious diseases. … This comprehensive, up-to-date book is an excellent resource for healthcare professionals, academicians, or researchers in the area of infectious diseases.” (Pamela A. Foral, Doody’s Book Reviews, May, 2013)

“The third edition of Drug Interactions in Infectious Diseases covers all drug interactions relevant to the management of Infectious Diseases in a systematic, comprehensive and clear way. It will be a useful point of reference for Infectious Diseases clinicians, clinical pharmacologists and clinical pharmacists managing patients in this complex area of practice.” (British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology, Vol. 75 (3), March, 2013)

“The editors of Drug Interactions in Infectious Diseases, Third Edition … present an updated review of information related to the importance of drug interactions in infectious disease. Each chapter provides extensive evidence, accompanied by a bibliography, to make a valuable tertiary reference. … The introduction allows the book to be read by experienced practitioners as well as interested professionals in the area of infectious disease. … It will be a valuable resource for any medical professional prescribing and monitoring antimicrobial therapy.” (Jessica Winter, Clinical Infectious Diseases, December, 2012)
