Back cover text:

Volume 28 in the series of Side Effects of Drugs Annuals (http://www.elsevier.com/locate/series/seda) continues to serve its primary goal: to provide clinicians and medical investigators with a reliable and critical yearly survey of new data and trends in the area of Adverse Drug Reactions and Interactions. An international team of specialists has reviewed new data and trends by selecting from the year's writing all that is truly new and informative, by critically interpreting it, and by pointing to whatever is unproven or misleading. The use of the book is enhanced by separate indexes, allowing the reader to access the text via drug name, adverse effect, or drug interaction.

The current annual includes an essay by the editor, Dr Jeffrey Aronson, entitled 'Classifying Drug Adverse Reactions in the 21st Century.' In it he describes how the modern approach to classifying adverse drug reactions takes into account the dose that causes the reaction, the time-course of the reaction, and the susceptibility factors that increase the individual patient's risk, and shows how this analysis can facilitate regulatory decision making.

The Side Effects of Drugs Annuals include special reviews, an important feature of the series. The special reviews are short articles that deal in depth with a specific topic of current interest, typographically distinguished from the rest of the text, and marked by the prescription symbol of the eye of Horus. This volume includes a list of Special Reviews in this volume and an index of Special Reviews in previous volumes.

The Special Reviews in this Annual include, among others:
• Antipsychotic drugs and new-onset diabetes mellitus
• Do NSAIDs inhibit the cardioprotective effects of acetylsalicylic acid?
• Treating asthma during pregnancy
• Prudent future use of antibiotics
• Metabolic complications and antiretroviral therapy
• The safety of thiomersal-containing vaccines
• MMR vaccine and autism
• Vinca alkaloids
• Safety issues involving herbal medicines: kava as a case study
• Errors in drug administration

The related encyclopaedia, Meyler's Side Effects of Drugs, The International Encyclopedia of Adverse Drug Reactions and Interactions, Fifteenth Edition (http://www.elsevier.com/locate/Meyler), will be published in 2006.
