The Sage Handbook of Healthcare: Global Policies - Business Opportunities - Scientific Developments

With escalating healthcare costs, changes to the regulatory control on pharmaceutical industries and the inevitable adjustments made in policies and investment in healthcare there is enormous interest in the commercial as well as the scientific aspects of today's healthcare industry.

The SAGE Handbook of Healthcare provides an authoritative analysis of the current (and anticipated) developments in the global healthcare industries. Providing a unique perspective that interfaces between the science and business aspects, it combines information on the latest scientific developments with applied, commercial business data from the global marketplace.

The Handbook focuses on the aspects of paramount importance in the healthcare sector:

- Pharmacoeconomics

- Pharmacogenomics

- Therapeutics

- Diagnostics

Areas covered include:

- The role of nanotechnology, genomics and cell therapy in medicine

- Diagnostics; Biomarkers and technological advances

- Case studies in oncology and cardiovascular and CNS therapeutics
