The prostaglandin system : endoperoxides, prostacyclin, and thromboxanes : [proceedings] by F Berti( Book )

15 editions published between 1979 and 1981 in English and Spanish and held by 265 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Prostaglandin research is one of the most explosive fields in the biological science, and there have been a number of international symposia on this subject. In planning the second Advanced Course in Erice (Sicily) at the "Ettore Majorana" center it was realized that large congresses might not represent the best way to facilitate communication within specialized areas of biologic and medical research. In fact small meetings where in depth discussion is confined to a limited number of scientists, are now generally considered successful vehicles of scientific information. With this in mind, we made an effort in collecting a number of experts in both experimental and clinical use of these important arachidonate metabolites. We have been very fortunate in bringing together a faculty of international authorities who contributed to the course with brilliant presentations and lively discussion. Thus, this book represents an up-to-date overview of the physiology and pharmacology of different products derived from arachidonic acid metabolism, associated with outstanding suggestions of their clinical potential. It is our hope that from this Advanced Course, and its resulting publication, new ideas concerning the physio­ pathological role of these compounds will arise together with new directions for future research. We are deeply indebted to NATO for its interest and generous support which made this Second Course a reality

The pineal gland and its endocrine role by J Axelrod( Book )

5 editions published between 1976 and 1983 in English and held by 232 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The pineal gland has been a subject of interest and speculation for more than 2000 years. Greek anatomists were impressed by the ob servation that the pineal gland is an unpaired structure and they believed that it regulated the flow of thoughts. The philosopher Descartes proposed an important role for this organ in brain function. At the beginning of the 20th century experiments by several investi gators indicated that the pineal influenced sexual function and skin pigmentation and was also responsive to light signals. With the iso lation of melatonin from bovine pineal glands by Lerner and cowork ers in 1958 the modern era of pineal research was initiated. Within a few years the pathway for the biosynthesis of melatonin in the pineal was elucidated. Soon thereafter it was shown that the formation of melatonin was influenced by environmental lighting. Ana tomists found that the pineal was innervated by sympathetic nerves and that the gland had photoreceptor elements. It was also shown that the gonads were influenced by light via the pineal gland. Research on the pineal gland became of increasing interest to anatomists, bioche mists, pharmacologists and endocrinologists. With the expanding know ledge concerning the function of the pineal gland contributed by the wide variety of disciplines, it was thought that a study workshop would be timely
Perspectives in inflammation : future trends and developments : the proceedings of the third International Meeting on Future Trends in Inflammation, organized by the European Biological Research Association and held in London, February 14th-18th, 1977 by D. A Willoughby( Book )

16 editions published between 1977 and 2012 in English and held by 211 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report on Future Trends in Inflammation III is the record of what is now firmly established as a series of multidisciplinary meetings organized by the European Biological Research Association. The aim of these meetings is to provide a forum for free exchange of information between basic scien­ tists of many disciplines and clinicians to provide better understanding of problems of common interest. The next major meeting wi1l be held in 1980.* The European Biological Research Association promotes scientific and clinical collaboration among the member countries ofthe EEe. It encourages exchange of information between scientists and clinicians from centres all over the world. In addition to the major international meetings small work­ shops are organized on specific problems of common interest. Once again the Editors have attempted to capture the spirit of the meeting by publishing 'verbatim' the discussion. It can be seen that the discussions were exciting and formed an important part of the meeting. It is possible that inaccuracies have crept into the discussions; if so we apologize. It was decided that the proceedings of such a meeting had maximum value with rapid publication. We would like to thank the participants for the enthusiasm and goodwill which persisted throughout the meeting both scientifically and socially. Above all we wish to thank H.R.H. The Duchess of Kent for acting as Patron of this meeting

Drug development, regulatory assessment, and postmarketing surveillance by William M Wardell( Book )

9 editions published between 1980 and 1981 in English and held by 194 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume is the outcome of the International School of Phar­ macology course sponsored as a NATO Advanced Study Institute and held in Erice (Sicily) at the Ettore Majorana Centre for Scientific Culture from October 3 through 12, 1980. The course, which consisted of lectures and teaching seminars, examined issues of international importance in all phases of drug development, assessment, and regu­ lation. In order to recreate both the atmosphere and substance of the meeting, a variety of materials are included here: the papers pre­ sented by the lecturers, a selection of key items from the supple­ mentary materials provided by the lecturers to the participants, notes on issues raised during the discussions, and accounts of certain special sessions arranged in response to interests expressed by those attending. The course covered two broad areas represented here by parts of the book. Part I, "Drug Assessment and Regulation," is based on the nine sessions of the course that ranged in focus from recent developments in the science of clinical pharmacology and drug development to discussions of whether and how the regulation of drug development can (or should) be harmonized internationally. In Part 11, "Postmarketing Surveillance," many aspects of this important subject are presented. Arguments outlining the potential benefits of national and international postmarketing surveillance systems are qualified by consideration of the problems inherent in devising and using these systems

Drug epidemiology and post-marketing surveillance by NATO Advanced Study Institute on Drug Epidemiology and Post-Marketing Surveillance( Book )

10 editions published between 1990 and 1992 in English and held by 168 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume is a summary of material presented in the course given in the International School of Phannacology on "Drug Epidemiology and Post-Marketing Surveillance" between September 27 and October 8, 1990, at the "Ettore Majorana Center for Scientific Culture" in Erice, Sicily. The course, which was a NATO Advanced Study Institute, included lectures and workshops presented by experts in the new field of phannacoepidemiology. The material covered includes various approaches to spontaneous reporting of adverse drug reactions, including aggregate approaches, such as those used in France, and detailed analyses of individual reports, such as that done in The Netherlands and in Sweden. Also, included are studies using traditional epidemiology methods. In addition, modern pharmacoepidemiology makes considerable use of automated databases. As such, information is presented on their use as well. Phannacoepidemiology started in hospitals and some of the newest work in the field is returning to the hospital as a site for studies. Material on these topics was presented as well. Finally, selected new methodologic developments were outlined in specific examples presented that were of regulatory and commercial importance. This new field of phannacoepidemiology is exploding in interest internationally. Evidence of this is the increasing development of pharmacoepidemiology programs in industry, medical schools, pharmacy schools, and schools of public health. Also, there is a new International Society ofPhannacoepidemiology. Practitioners in this field tend to specialize in either analyses of spontaneous reporting or the use of formal epidemiologic techniques
Side-effects of anti-inflammatory drugs : proceedings of the 2nd International Meeting on the Side-effects of Anti-inflammatory Analgesic Drugs, held at Cambridge, England, 31st July-2nd August 1985 by K. D Rainsford( Book )

13 editions published between 1986 and 1987 in English and held by 132 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

These two volumes contain the proceedings of a 3 day international meeting held at the University of Cambidge and Queens' College Cambridge from 31st July to 2nd August 1985 on the Side-Effects of Anti-Inflammatory Analgesic Drugs. The first meeting was held in Verona, (Italy) in 1982 and the organisers felt that, with a number of recent developments including the withdrawal of a num­ ber of new anti-inflammatory drugs, and concern being expressed in the lay and specialist medical press and other media about the safety of these drugs, that it was appropriate to have a second such meeting. The meeting was attended by some 300 delegates and the dis­ cussion focussed most intently on the recent issues, e. g. the value of adverse drug reaction reporting of the non-steroidal anti­ inflammatory (NSAI) drugs, certain side-effects associated with particular NSAI drugs, the predictive value of animal models etc. Organising a meeting de novo without outside help would not have been possible without the immensely valuable help given en­ thusiastically by people and financial assistance given most generously by those pharmaceutical companies listed below. These financial contributions were given despite current economic dif­ ficulties and moves to restrict the proportion of profits towards educational activities

New developments in antirheumatic therapy( Book )

5 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 67 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At present we may be at the cross-roads in the therapeutic approaches we have for the treatment of the 100 or more rheumatic conditions. This is be­ cause we now recognise that although some advances have been made with the development of a large range of non-steroidal and steroidal drugs during the past two decades or so, we now recognise that many, if not all, of these have rather limited effects on many of the disease processes which underlie the manifestations of the various rheumatic states. Advances in molecular bi- 010gy in the past 5-10 years have enabled these tools to be applied extensive­ ly for developing further our understanding of the rheumatic disease processes. In some cases these molecular tools (e. g. ,),-interferon, interleukin- 2, T-cell antibodies) have been directly employed as therapies themselves. While the outcome from trials with such agents in rheumatoid arthritis in particular has not been as would have been hoped, these results as with cy­ closporin A and low-dose methotrexate in the therapy of rheumatoid arth­ ritis have given us important indications for the approach employing what are generally described as "immunomodulators" to control this disease. But this may not be the same type of approach which is desirable for all types of rheumatic conditions. Indeed, even the way which the present range of drugs and other therapies are applied may not be the most effective and safe means of treating different types of arthritic conditions
Copper and zinc in inflammation by R Milanino( Book )

10 editions published between 1988 and 1989 in English and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The role of trace metals, especially copper and zinc, in the pathogenesis of rheumatic conditions has continued to receive much interest following the initial upsurge of research activity in the 1970s. Meantime also copper and zinc complexes receive continued attention for their potential anti-inflam­ matory actions. Since the previous major titles were published in this field some years ago (e. g. 1,2) it was considered timely to consider progress which has been made in the interceding period. Thus in this volume aspects are re­ viewed of the metabolism and biodisposition of copper and zinc, especially as they may be influenced by inflammatory processes, the mode of action of copper and zinc compounds in inflammatory states, and the actions of some newer copper complexes. While we still understand relatively little about how copper and zinc complexes work in inflammation, and indeed what the fate of the ligands and their complexed ions is in inflammation, it is hoped that this volume will be useful for giving a current view of the "state of art" in the field. Special thanks are given to the valued efforts of the contributors, Dr Peter Clarke (Publishing Director, Kluwer Academic Publishers) and Mrs Veronica Rainsford-Koechli for her help in proof-reading the manuscripts.

Side-effects of anti-inflammatory drugs 3 by K. D Rainsford( Book )

8 editions published between 1992 and 2012 in English and held by 56 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book brings together physicians, scientists and those concerned with the production and use of anti-inflammatory drugs to discuss basic issues affecting all aspects of side-effects, including their detection and treatment. The chapters cover a wide variety of topics including the epidemiology, clinical and experimental aspects of side-effects in the GI tract, liver, kidney, cartilage, bone and skin as well as the problems associated with the newer range of disease-modifying anti-rheumatic drugs such as methotrexate and cyclosporin. This book will be of interest to all those who develop and use anti-inflammatory analgesic drugs, from basic scientists to clinicians. It contains papers presented at the Third International meeting on `Side-Effects of Anti-Inflammatory and Analgesic Drugs' held in Verona, Italy, 8-11 May 1991
