Trends in Medicinal Chemistry, Proceedings of the XIth
International Symposium on Medicinal Chemistry

S. Sarel, R. Mechoulam, I. Agrana

Blackwell Science,1992 [ISBN

The 54 articles which are divided into 12 sections in this new reference work represent the majority of the invited, plenary and main lectures which were included in the scientific program of the 11th International Symposium on Medicinal Chemistry. These combined articles do much to promote medicinal chemistry to the level of the 'Science of Drugs' and show chemistry as a most powerful ally of medicine. The traditional therapeutic areas are fully covered. However, in this volume, sections have also been devoted to less frequently reviewed areas.
