Advances in Pharmacological Research and Practice, Volume 1: Pharmacological Protection of the Myocardium presents the proceedings of the 4th Congress of the Hungarian Pharmacological Society, held in Budapest, Hungary in 1985. This book presents a comprehensive view of the development in the fields of pharmacological protection of the myocardium and the pharmacology of the vascular system.

Organized into two sections encompassing 70 chapters, this volume begins with an overview of the ischemic biochemical changes with emphasis on the role of cAMP and the protein kinase system. This text then explores the cellular electrophysiological disorders seen in acute myocardial ischemia as well as their pharmacological modification. Other chapters consider the prevention of primary ventricular fibrillation that includes measures aimed at maintaining electrical stability. The final chapter deals with drugs affecting beneficially the pathological lipoprotein levels.

This book is a valuable resource for cardiologists and pharmacologists.
