Martindale: The Complete Drug Reference, 36th Edition

by Madjackfrost on October 7, 2009

The aim of Martindale is to provide healthcare professionals with unbiased evaluated information on drugs and medicines used throughout the world. It therefore has to develop as the body of knowledge on existing drugs grows, new drugs emerge, new preparations are launched, and old preparations are abandoned, reformulated, or redefined. It also has to reflect the changing needs of those practicing pharmacy and medicine.

Martindale has been continuously expanded since it was first published in 1883, and to present all the extra information this edition of Martindale maintains the recent return to a two-volume publication. The first volume contains this preface and the drug monographs, and the second holds the proprietary preparations and the index, as well as manufacturers’ contact information.

As always the contents have been extensively revised, with all the text scanned and revalidated where necessary by a team of experienced pharmacists. Over 260 monographs have been added, and 89 removed from the book (abbreviated information on the latter remains available in the electronic versions).

This edition of Martindale also sees the number of graphical representations of the chemical structures increased. The information on proprietary preparations, an important feature of Martindale, has been updated and more countries have been covered for this edition.

Martindale is not a book of standards. Inclusion of a substance or a preparation is not to be considered as a recommendation for use, nor does it confer any status on the substance or preparation. While considerable efforts have been made to check the material in Martindale, the publisher cannot accept any responsibility for errors and omissions. Also the reader is assumed to possess the necessary knowledge to interpret the information that Martindale provides.
