This timely reference discusses mass spectrometry in drug metabolism and pharmacokinetic studies. With contributions by professionals from the pharmaceutical industry, this book begins with a review of current mass spectrometry techniques and applications, followed by discussions of various methods for using MS in drug metabolism studies and pharmacokinetics. Highlighting the critical importance of ADME studies for understanding how a drug is absorbed, distributed, metabolized, and excreted by the body, the book s focuses on the use of LC/MS and MALDI-MS. This is a valuable reference for scientists in the pharmaceutical industry, medicine, academia, and even those working in homeland defense.

“All in all, the book delivers on its promises to introduce and review the current art of mass spectrometry for the related disciplines of drug metabolism and pharmacokinetics. I highly recommend it.” (JACS Book Reviews, June 2009)

“In comparison to other books on mass spectrometry, this one not only provides both the basic and latest knowledge in mass spectrometry, but integrates the theory with applications to drug metabolism and pharmacokinetics.” (Doody's, April 2009)

""Mass Spectrometry in Drug Metabolism and Pharmacokinetics is a valuable and interesting resource for a broad readership, including scientists starting to work in DMPK as well as undergraduate and graduate students getting involved in drug discovery and characterization by means of MS. A wealth of information is provided and all of the contributing authors have done an excellent job in explaining and outlining particular aspects of MS-based tools in DMPK ... the book is highly recommended reading."" (Journal of the American Society for Mass Spectrometry, March 2009)
