Pharmacology and Nutritional Intervention in the Treatment of Disease is
a book dealing with an important research field that has worldwide significance.
Its aim is to strengthen the research base of this field of investigation as it
yields knowledge that has important implications for biomedicine, public health
and biotechnology. The basic purpose of this book was to promote interaction and
discussion of problems of mutual interests among people in related fields
The authors of this book look from different
angles to hypertension, sharing their new knowledge and experience in the
direction of deep understanding and more clarification of the disease providing
an invaluable resource not only for clinicians, but also for all medical
sciences students and health providers.
The author does not
claim for the book that it is an exhaustive treatise on Pharmacology suitable
for advanced students of the subject, but that it may be found useful to the
ordinary medical students and also to the general practitioners who may use it
to review their medical school instruction. In this second edition the author
has attempted to incorporate all new facts in pharmacology or in pharmaco-therapy
which have been developed since the previous edition.
Pharmacology comprises some broad conceptions and
generalizations, and some detailed conclusions, of such great and practical importance that every
student and practitioner of medicine should be absolutely familiar with them. It
comprises also a large mass of minute details, idiich would constitute too great a tax on human memory, but which can not
safely be neglected. It is the ambition of this book to present both types of
information without confusion.
