To exploit the full potential of this diverse compound class for the development of novel active substances, this handbook presents the latest knowledge on carbohydrate chemistry and biochemistry. While it is unique in covering the entire field, particular emphasis is placed on carbohydrates with pharmaceutical potential.
Topics include the following:
> Chemical Synthesis of Carbohydrates
> Carbohydrate Biosynthesis and Metabolism
> Carbohydrate Analysis
> Cellular Functions of Carbohydrates
> Development of Carbohydrate-based Drugs
A premier resource for carbohydrate chemists and drug developers, this comprehensive two-volume work contains contributions by more than 50 of the world's leading carbohydrate chemists.

"In summary, Carbohydrate-Based Drug Discovery Vols. 1 and 2 provide an appropriate and useful look at the current state of the art in this relevant and rapidly advancing field. I recommend the book to both experts and less expert readers." ( ChemBioChem, April 2004)

"To summarize, the work provides a comprehensive and excellent survey of the present situation in carbohydrate research, in which many interesting details can be spotted. Because of the wide range of topics covered, the reader will refer to it again and again. It is likely to become a standard work on the subject, not exclusively for carbohydrate chemistry enthusiasts." (Angewandte Chemie + IE, 2004-43/31)
