The new project “Successful Drug Discoveries” is an extension of the completed project “Analogue-based Drug Discovery” affording three books published in 2006 (project 2002-051-1-700), 2010 (project 2008-013-1-700), and 2013 (project 2011-011-1-700) by Wiley-VCH. The book series focused on drug analogues. The plan of the new project is to present novel drugs that have been approved for use. This will include both pioneer drugs (first in class drugs) and drug analogues (follow on drugs) and both small molecule and biological drug discoveries in a range of therapeutic areas. This new project has a broader scope. Nevertheless, we want to preserve the structure of the completed book series.
The book will be written by 34 authors from Germany, Hungary, Japan, UK, and USA.
The editorial work of Janos Fischer (Richter Plc, Hungary) is helped by co-editors David P. Rotella (Montclair University, USA) and Roy Jefferis (University of Birmingham, UK) and the advisory board members: Klaus P. Bøgesø (Lundbeck, Denmark), Kazumi Kondo (Otsuka, Japan), John A. Lowe III (JL3Pharma LLC, USA), and Barry VL Potter (Uni. of Bath, UK).
An outline of the book content and chapters title is available on the project webpage.
