Written by an internationally renowned authority in the field,
this is the most complete dictionary devoted specifically to the
terms currently used in pharmacoepidemiology. The use of
clear and consistent terminology in science has never been
more important, and this dictionary, which has been translated
from the third edition of a French original, has been reworked
to include suggestions made by pharmacoepidemiologists
currently using existing versions. It contains revised definitions
for nearly all established terms in addition to comprehensive
descriptions of new terms and is well illustrated with practical
examples. This outstandingly high-quality dictionary will be
essential for all those whose work is within or touches upon
this field: regulatory authorities, pharmaceutical physicians,
lawyers, pharmacists, researchers, evaluators and students.
"Good reference source; likely to enjoy a long life. It's a buy." (Pharmaceutical Physician, June 2001)

"Begaud has assembled this dictionary which contains clear definitions for terms often thrown around with little understanding" (British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology, July 2001)

"...translated and adapted from the third edition of Dictionnair de Pharmacoepidemiologie.... It has been substantially revised to take into account comments from professionals using the previous editions." (SciTech Book News, Vol. 25, No. 4, December 2001)
