Reviews

Praise for the Series: "...may the Progress in Medicinal Chemistry series continue its invaluable service..." @source:--Chemistry and Industry "... a valuable source of reference" @source:--British Medical Journal "...These volumes should be on the shelves of all specialist libraries which claim to cater for chemists, biologists, doctors and pharmacists and should be available to everyone interested in the contemporary controversy about drugs, drug firms and the community." @source:--Pharmaceutical Journal "...the consistently high standards for this series have been maintained in the present volume. This volume should certainly take its place next to the previous volumes in this series in libraries devoted to medicinal chemistry and drug research..." @source:--Journal of Medicinal Chemistry
