    African Traditional Medicine.
    A Dictionary of Plant Use and Applications.
    Hans Dieter Neuwinger. 2000.
    There is a treasure trove in the African flora with its immeasurable richness in variety of species and its Traditional medicinal usage, but the collected mass of knowledge is being rapidly lost. In the last decades a great deal of healers' knowledge has been recorded, but much more indigenous knowledge remains unwritten and is passed on orally. In many African countries the healers are increasingly integrated into the public health service and clinics made use of their knowledge.
    This unique book documents the traditional knowledge and use of African medicinal plants to an extent not previously available. In total more than 5400 plants from south of the Sahara to the Cape are listed and over 16300 medicinal applications with plant part,details on method of preparation and dosage.
    The botany and taxonomy are up to date. The plants are in the forefront and are arranged alphabetically by their scientific name. Those readers interested in the medicinal field can find an extensive search system for ailments in a supplementary booklet. This book is intended for scientists searching for medicinally active plants for further research. It is also of interest to botanists, biologists and ethnologists. Nonspecialist travelers to Africa or people throughout the world, especially in the Americas, who trace their roots back to Africa, may find here fascinating glimpses of the plant usage and the book may help them regard the plants in a new light. 589 pp. ISBN 3 88763 086 6  $158.40


    Cardiovascular Therapy.
    Evidence-based Medicine - Questions and Answers. 1st edition. 

    Harald Darius, Gisbert Kober, and Wolfgang Schulz. 2001.
    Over the last 20 years, the treatment of cardiovascular diseases, with their high rate of serious endpoints, has been revolutionized by Evidence-based Medicine (EBM). Trailblazing developments include the comeback of beta-blockers, the towering significance of ACE inhibitors, and the effects of fibrinogen receptor antagonists. Moreover, only the rise of new adjunctive therapies has made it safe to perform percutaneous coronary interventions. Many answers have been found and rational concepts developed. But blind paths (e.g. in the positive inotropic and antiarrhythmic therapy) have come into focus as well. Numerous studies (e.g. ISIS, TIMI, GUSTO, GISSI) have systematically taken on the great issues confronting cardiology. Heart failure and even heart attacks have lost some of their fearsomeness. Life expectancy - thanks to the combined administration of multiple medicines - has been prolonged significantly. Prevention continues to increase steadily in importance. This comprehensive book on Evidence-based Medicine covers: cardiology - renowned experts describe and elucidate • What has proven to be ineffective • What has not yet been proven • What, in terms of therapeutic progress, has been achieved by means of randomized studies with clinical endpoints. Paperback, 432 pp., 30 figs., 34 tables.

    Future Strategies for Drug Delivery with Particulate Systems.
    Edited by Julia E. Diederichs and Rainer H. Müller. 1998.
    Research on particulate delivery systems is an important discipline of the pharmaceutical sciences, being performed in many academic and industrial laboratories all around the world.

The book presents trends and future strategies in these fields using: liposomes • emulsions • polymeric nanoparticles • solid lipid nanoparticles (SLNTM, LipopearlsTM) • nanosuspensions of poorly soluble & bioavailable drugs • particulate diagnostics. In this book, European pharmaceutical research groups at the universities of Berlin, Copenhagen, Paris and Utrecht present their current research activities and outline the strategies for controlled delivery of the future. Contents: Nanoparticles and Liposomes for Drug Targeting • Liquid Based Drug Delivery Systems for Peptide and Protein Drug Delivery • Interaction of Plasma Proteins with Liposomes • Influence of Surface Properties on Adsorption Patterns and Protein Conformation • Iron Oxides as Contrast Agents in Magnetic Resonance Lymphography • Solid Liquid Nanoparticles, Nanosuspensions and Liposomes for Pharmaceutical Cosmetic Applications • Liposomes as Drug Carrier for Diagnostics, Cytostatics and Genetic Material • Strategies for Site Specific, Time and Rate Controlled Delivery of Drugs, Genes and Antigenes • Index.

    Venomous and Poisonous Animals.
    A Handbook for Biologists, Toxicologists and Toxinologists, Physicians and Pharmacists.
    Dietrich Mebs. 2002.
    Life is a struggle on both land and in the sea and many animals have developed chemical weapons, for attack or defense. These toxins, venoms or poisons, are diverse in both structure and function and are delivered to victims in equally diverse ways. Humans frequently encounter these venomous and poisonous animals and all too often suffer unpleasant consequences including death, be it from a bite or sting causing envenoming, or poisoning after eating the wrong animal. Questions addressed include: Which animal species are involved, how do they use their venom and toxins? What is the chemical composition of these natural products and how do they act? What are the most appropriate first aid measures, which therapy is possible and necessary? The author, toxicologist at the Department of Forensic Science of the University of Frankfurt, Germany, provides expert information for biologists, toxicologists, pharmacists, physicians, but also for travelers. 348 pp., 332 figs.
