The December Issue of Clinical Pharmacology & Therapeutics is Available
The last issue of Clinical Pharmacology & Therapeutics (CPT) to publish under the leadership of Scott A. Waldman, MD, PhD, is now available.

The December issue of CPT is now online. Edited by Jeannine S. McCune, PharmD, and guest editors Teodora Pene Dumitrescu, PhD, and Virginia Schmith, PhD, the issue theme is “Placebo Response,” and seeks to improve our understanding of the placebo response and to develop new strategies to minimize its impact within clinical trials.  The December issue is the final issue published under the editorship of Scott A. Waldman, MD, PhD, and his team of dedicated Associate Editors. For the past 12 years, Scott and his team have been exemplary stewards of ASCPT’s flagship journal, guiding not only the journal, but the science and discipline of the field. We thank them for their commitment and excellence.
