  • New and updated Special Interest Topics boxes address current events in pharmacology that have gained attention in the media.
  • Audio clips for the generic names of the 200 most commonly prescribed drugs are included on the EVOLVE site for the book as an Audio Drug Glossary, and pronunciations of these drugs are also included in Appendix B: Pronunciation of Generic Names of the Top 200 Prescribed Drugs in 2002.
