Recent Advances In Prostaglandin Thromboxane And Leukotriene Research by Helmut Sinzinger


Original Title: Recent Advances In Prostaglandin Thromboxane And Leukotriene Research

The International Symposium on Prostaglandins and Related Compounds, first held in Vienna 1972, revisited the city after 24 years for the 10TH Symposium. For the many re searchers working in this multi-disciplinary field it was an opportunity to exchange their ex periences and share new data with colleagues from all around the world. This scientific exchange was largely encouraged by the unseasonably cold and rainy weather. For the first time, there was quite a large attendance from the former Communist countries. Eugene Garfield prepared a key note address delivered during the meeting (The Sci entist 1996, 12) reviewing the contribution of the Nobel Laureates U.S. von Euler, l.R. Vane, S.K. Bergstrom, and B.I. Samuelsson, discussing the relevance of the more than 40,000 pa pers in this area published since 1991. Overall, there is still a rapidly growing interest, and in particular a great variety of clinical applications of this family of compounds which were dis cussed in detail during the meeting. Beside the lectures there were 19 workshops covering nearly all the topics of key in terest. All the speakers were invited to prepare a manuscript which has resulted in the volume now in your hands. Special thanks to Dr. Patrick Wong and the new publisher of this series who helped to publish the proceedings in the usual quality and reasonable period of time. Looking forward to seeing all of you again in Florence in 1999, hopefully with much more sun.

Prostaglandins And Related Compounds by Bengt Samuelsson


Original Title: Prostaglandins And Related Compounds

This volume contains more than 100 papers presented by leading investigators worldwide at the Ninth International Conference on Prostaglandins and Related Compounds. These presentations cover the entire spectrum of contemporary research on eicosanoids and highlight the applications of this research in the development and therapeutic use of new drugs. Major sections of the book review the most recent advances in the study of phospholipases, cyclooxygenase pathways, lipoxygenase pathways, cytochrome P450 and other oxygenase products, and isoprostanes. Other sections focus on receptors and on the role of eicosanoids in immunology, inflammation, cell differentiation and proliferation, blood cells and the vascular wall, and the respiratory, cardiovascular, and renal systems. Close attention is given to recent research on platelet-activating factor (PAF) and nitric oxide. Also included are extensive updates on ocular prostaglandin research and discussions of the use of prostaglandin E[subscript 1] in the management of erectile dysfunction. This volume is an essential reference for pharmacologists, biochemists, cell biologists, and physiologists, as well as for clinicians treating the wide range of diseases in which eicosanoids play a role.
