Color Atlas of Pharmacology 3rd ED

Book Reviews: In many countries, medicine is at present facing urgent political and economic calls for reform. These socioeconomic pressures notwithstanding, pharmacotherapy has al- ways been an integral part of the health care system and will remain so in the future. Well-founded knowledge of the preventive and therapeutic value of drugs is a sine qua non-for the successful treatment of patients entrusting themselves to a physician or pharmacist.

Because of the plethora of proprietary medicines and the continuous influx of new pharmaceuticals, the drug market is difficult to survey and hard to understand. This is true not only for the student in search of a logical system for dealing with the wealth of available drugs, but also for the practicing clinician in immediate need of independent information.

Clearly, a pocket atlas can provide only a basic framework. Comprehensive knowledge has to be gained from major textbooks. As is evident from the drug lists included in the Appendix, some 600 drugs are covered in the present Atlas. This number should be sufficient for everyday medical practice and could be interpreted as a Model List. The advances in pharmacotherapy made in re- cent years have required us to incorporate new plates and text passages, and to expunge obsolete approaches. Several plates needed to be brought in line with new knowledge.

As the new edition was nearing completion, several high-profile drugs experienced withdrawal from the market, substantive change in labeling, or class action litigation against their manufacturers. Amid growing concern over effectiveness of drug safety regulations, “pharmacovigilance” has become a new priority. It is hoped that this compendium may aid in promoting the critical awareness and rational attitude required to meet that demand.

The authors are grateful for comments and suggestions from colleagues, and from students, both doctoral and undergraduate. Thanks, are due to Professor R. Lüllmann-Rauch for histological and cell-biological advice. The authors are indebted to Ms. M. Mauch and Ms. K. Jürgens, Thieme Verlag, for their care and assistance and to Ms. Gabriele Kuhn for harmonious editorial guidance.
