'Psychiatric Pharmacogenetics' is Released
NEW YORK, Feb. 27, 2017 /PRNewswire/ Dr. David Durham and Dr. RanjitThirumaranwere deluged with requests by psychiatrists and other mental health practitioners to help explain how pharmacogeneticsworks. Finally, they decided to write a book that does just that. The FortisCaligaAcademic Press and the American College of NeurocognitiveMedicine are pleased to announce the release of their bookPsychiatric Pharmacogeneticsfrom concepts to cases.
"We thought we'd write something that is concise and targeted to the doc or provider that is working hard and has little to search for answers in traditional textbooks," says Dr. Thirumaran.
In their book, they outline the history and basic physiology of pharmacogenetics, review how this science is changing the regulatory and medico-legal framework, and outline how it can dramatically improve patient outcomes and reduce the side effects from psychotropic medications. Dr. Durham believes it is time the field of psychiatry and mental health adopt this cutting edge science.
"We spend billions of dollars every year managing side effects from psychiatric medications. When you learn to use pharmacogenetic testing properly, you can save a patient a lot of distress and save society a great deal of money. It's not a difficult tool to learn to use, even for busy practitioners."
Psychiatric Pharmacogeneticsfrom concepts to cases is available in e-book format, paperback ($49.99), hardcover and and audio version on Amazon, Barnes and Noble's on-line Nook, Lulu, Koboand other on-line stores. Since its release in mid-January, it has been a best seller in both the genetics and drug reference categories on Amazon.
