Description

Internationally renowned authorities from diverse fields present the principles and practice regarding the measurement of drug effects in humans and its role in the analysis and development of new chemical entities. The main thrust is on surrogate endpoints, peripheral vascular disease, the reliability of data collection and interpretation as well as the identification, predictability and performance of drug interactions and adverse effects.
