Pharmacogenetics and pharmacogenomics are areas of significant importance at the interface of molecular genetics and psychopharmacology, with implications for drug development and clinical practice. This 2002 book provides a conceptual framework for understanding and studying the pharmacogenetics of psychotropic drugs, reviews advances in the field, and describes the established findings. Coverage extends to antipsychotics, antidepressants, mood stabilising, cognitive-enhancing and anxiolytic drugs. Chapters also examine the interface of pharmacogenetics with substance dependence and brain imaging, and consider its impact on the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries. This book defines the young field of pharmacogenetics as it applies to psychotropic drugs, and is therefore of interest to all clinicians and researchers working in this field.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Review of the hardback: '... this is a well-written book on a subject which is often found complicated and difficult ... the book will be informative for the reader who wants a general review of the field of psychopharmacogenetics, but will also be useful for the reader who wants updated information on a specific topic ...' European Journal of Clinical Pharmacology
Review of the hardback: 'This book gives a comprehensive review of the current state of the art covering almost all aspects of psychiatric pharmacogenetics. It provides an excellent introduction to the newcomer in this field and at the same time it is a most valuable source of information also for the experts.' Acta Psychiatrica Scandinavica
Review of the hardback: 'Bernard Lerer is to be congratulated in bringing together a group of authors who have presented an excellent, yet concise, overview of the importance of pharmacogenetics in contemporary psychopharmacology. ... this monograph is recommended to all those wishing to keep abreast of this important area of neuroscience.' Human Psychopharmacology
