The Japanese Pharmaceutical Industry in the New Millennium.
Society of Japanese Pharmacopoeia. 2001.
This book presents an analysis of the current trends
and problems in the Japanese pharmaceutical industry, and attempts to find the
key to future trends that will enhance the industry. With Japan being the
world's second largest drugs market, the pharmaceutical industry is a key sector
of the economy. The sector is, unlike the rest of the world, dominated by local
companies, and the impact of major Western pharmaceutical companies has until
recently been limited by the peculiar history and nature of Japanese medicine.
Yet the globalization of business is now affecting this sector, and the domestic
companies are changing rapidly in order to compete more effectively, both at
home and abroad, and to develop new medicines. Paperback, v + 167 pp.

Medicines Compendium 2003.
Medicines Compendium has been
published for over twenty years as the ABPI Compendium of Data Sheets and
Summaries of Product Characteristics. The new Medicines Compendium contains
thousands of Summary of Product Characteristics (SPCs) which describe a medicine
including its properties, effects and warnings. SPCs are written to guide
healthcare professionals in the safe and appropriate use of medicines. To avoid
potentially life-threatening errors and to support good clinical governance, it
is vitally important for doctors, pharmacists, nurses and other healthcare
professionals to have up-to-date medicines information at their disposal. Every
year there are an estimated 12,000 changes to UK medicines information contained
within the SPCs. The Medicines Compendium contains this information from over
one hundred manufacturers covering thousands of medicines. Since the 2002
edition, there have been 666 additions, 883 updated documents and 512 deletions.
It encompasses the SPCs of both prescription only and pharmacy medicines. The
information includes: Indications Contra-indications Dosage Use during
Pregnancy Adverse Drug Reactions. The source of this information is approved
by the Department of Health's Medicines Control Agency (MCA) or equivalent
European Medicines Evaluation Agency. Hardback, 2376 pp.

The Street Pharmacopoeia.
A guide listing and cross-referencing nomenclature for psychotropic substances.
Alasdair Forsyth. 2000.
This book lists not only generic drug names but
also common names, brand names, pharmacological names, slang names, archaic
names and names of botanical drug sources. The list also names products which
may have been used as drugs in the past, but have been withdrawn. All drug names
are provided in a concise form suitable for use in the field. It is hoped that
this list will be of use to both individuals and agencies across the spectrum of
drug work. Such use may vary from assisting researchers in drug classification
to helping the medical practitioner quickly to identify any substance from an
unfamiliar 'street name'. Contains details of all substances that may have a
potential for illicit use, and identifies any substance from its street name.
Some additional information about each drug is also provided, including uses,
legal status, and incidence of use in some recent research studies. The existing
literature provides inadequate coverage of the names and varieties of drugs used
non-medically. Nothing similar yet exists, only publications with partial
information may be found. The information is contained in a quickly and
accessible format. Essential for doctors, police, funded drug groups, social
workers, counselors, probation officers, health educators. Paperback, 192 pp.
