Description

Advances in Pharmacology & Therapeutics II, Volume 4: Biochemical Immunological Pharmacology covers papers on the developments in pharmacology and therapeutics. The book contains invited lectures on the effect of drugs on immunological control mechanisms; the pharmacology of specific, pure and potent serotonin 5-HT2 or S2-antagonists; and the pharmacology of phospholipases A2 isolated from snake venoms. The text also contains papers on leukotrienes; the guanine nucleotide-binding regulatory component of adenylate cyclase; and the pharmacological and toxicological implications of multiple cytochromes P-450. The impact of the emerging biotechnologies on pharmacology; the action of antipsychotics on LSD-induced neurochemical and behavioral effects in rats; and the effect of histamine and related compounds on the immune response are also considered. The book also presents papers on inflammation; prostacyclin; prostaglandins; and chemical hazards to humans.
