Great Demand for Analogue-Based Drug Discovery
Results in Reprint
Eighteen months ago, the book Analogue-Based Drug Discovery, edited by Janos Fischer and C. Robin Ganellin (Chemistry and Human Health Division), was first published by Wiley VCH in Europe and then in the overseas markets of the Americas, Australasia, and Africa. From the publisher’s point of view, the first 18 months after a book is published determines its overall success in the market. Wiley VCH sold out the initial print run of 800 copies of this book, and is undertaking a first reprint.
According to Frank Weinreich, Wiley-VCH representative, the fact that demand for the book continues to be so high testifies to its great concept and quality, which is the result of the dedication of the two editors, Fischer and Ganellin, as well as the many authors who have contributed to it. It also indicates that there is great interest among those in the global drug development community to educate themselves from books like this one. Wiley believes that a companion volume with new case studies of analogue-based drug development will enjoy the same outreach and popularity as the first book. The task group is being encouraged to again assemble a team of well-known experts from the community to begin working on a follow-up volume.
