Description

The Prostaglandins: Pharmacological and Therapeutic Advances provides a concise account of the more important theoretical developments and areas in which the prostaglandins are being introduced into clinical practice or have potential clinical application. Chapters I to IV of this book deal with the chemistry and classification, distribution and metabolism, general pharmacology, and mechanism of action. The rest of the chapters discuss the relationship of the prostaglandins to the reproductive, cardiovascular, respiratory, and gastro-intestinal systems with an emphasis on the human pharmacology and potential therapeutic applications. This text also includes the speculations and suggestions of contributors regarding the possible and further use of the prostaglandins. This publication is a good reference for biochemists and medical students concerned with the potential of prostaglandins.
