This up to date treatment of calcium and potassium channel pharmacology first presents both molecular and preclinical pharmacology data, followed by contributions on the clinical application of the drugs that modulate calcium and potassium channels. Cardiovascular data prevail, but other chapters also discuss possible roles and application to the nervous system.

Overview

This up to date treatment of calcium and potassium channel pharmacology first presents both molecular and preclinical pharmacology data, followed by contributions on the clinical application of the drugs that modulate calcium and potassium channels. Cardiovascular data prevail, but other chapters also discuss possible roles and application to the nervous system. Further, some contributions deal with future prospects in the area.
Audience: Researchers, both pharmacological and medical, working in cardiovascular medicine with strong interests in the treatment of myocardial infarction and hypertension.
