A Mathematical Approach to Multilevel, Multiscale Health by Rodrick Wallace,Deborah Wallace

By Rodrick Wallace,Deborah Wallace

This ebook, in response to released stories, takes a different point of view at the 30-year cave in of pharmaceutical productiveness within the look for small molecule “magic bullet” interventions. The relentless escalation of inflation-adjusted rate in line with authorized medication within the usa — from $200 million in 1950 to $1.2 billion in 2010 — has pushed giants to, at most sensible, slavish imitation in drug layout, and at worst, abandonment of study and embracing of frequent fraud in shopper marketing.

The ebook adapts formalism throughout a couple of disciplines to the tactic for layout of mutilevel interventions, focusing first on molecular, mobile, and bigger scale examples, after which extending the argument to the simplifications supplied through the dominant function of social and cultural constructions and methods in person and inhabitants styles of future health and illness.

In position of “magic bullets”, we needs to now observe “magic ideas” that act throughout either the dimensions and point of association. This publication offers an introductory roadmap to the hot instruments that might be wanted for the layout of such strategies.


  • Beyond Magic Bullets
  • Expanding the Theory
  • Dynamic ‘Regression Models’
  • An Evolutionary Excursion
  • Example: psychological Disorders
  • Example: Protein Folding
  • Example: Glycome Determinants
  • Example: Glycan/Lectin good judgment Gates
  • Example: IDP good judgment Gates
