Biochemical Pharmacology of Ethanol by Regina Pietruszko (auth.), Edward Majchrowicz (eds.)

By Regina Pietruszko (auth.), Edward Majchrowicz (eds.)

A variety of very good symposia, studies and monographs at the biology of ethanol were released over the past decade. Al­ although it may possibly seem that one other such ebook might be superflu­ ous, the topic of alcohol abuse remains to be open for extra explora­ tion and the sector of the biochemical pharmacology of ethanol is in its infancy. this can be evidenced, for instance, through the unavailability of any medicinal drugs which are designed in particular for the therapy of alcohol intoxication or alcohol dependancy. The impetus for this book was once generated by means of a spontane­ ous enthusiasm following the symposium on BiochemicaZ Ph~acoZogy of EthanoZ that used to be prepared on the annual assembly of the yankee Chemical Society, department of organic Chemistry in August 1973 in Chicago. It was once the 1st symposium on this sort of subject ever in­ cluded within the software of that giant society of yank chemists. the unique goal of the symposium used to be to acquaint the participants of the society with a few simple proof in regards to the organic chemistry of ethanol. The symposium incorporated seven papers and coated a rela­ tively slender diversity of ethanol biochemistry. In view of the enthu­ siasm proven on the Chemical Society assembly, the panelists made up our minds to submit this system and to magnify it via inclusion of extra subject matters that have remained particularly unexplored in prior publica­ tions. moreover, studies were incorporated which debate previous themes from a brand new perspective.

The Effectiveness of Methadone Maintenance Treatment: Patients, Programs, Services, and Outcome

Legislators, newshounds and anxious electorate generally, whilst think about­ ing what to do concerning the plague of heroin dependancy in huge towns, ask an noticeable query: "Is methadone therapy potent? " this query is a severe one in view that upkeep with methadone is at this time the single prac­ tical replacement to leaving tens of hundreds of thousands (in big apple urban, millions) of untreated addicts at the streets.
