From The CriticsReviewer: George Parkhurst, PhD (Rush Medical College of Rush University)
Description: This book provides a thoughtful overview of prostaglandin development, including synthetic congeners. Therapeutic applications are thorough, critical, and largely based on European multicenter trials.
Purpose: The stated purpose of the authors was to produce a comprehensive review of the therapeutic applications of prostaglandins.
Audience: Given the multispecialty nature of the therapeutic applications and the fact that much of the clinical experience reported in this book is European, this book will be most useful for practitioners affiliated with medical universities involved in U.S. clinical trials of synthetic prostaglandins and prostaglandins in combination with other agents.
Features: This book is well organized, with a very effective table of contents and a suitable index. It is an attractive publication with helpful figures used in the discussion of various prostaglandins and tables that summarize across clinical studies. Discussion of the clinical experience is predominantly descriptive, with few tables or figures from individual publications. References reflect clinical experience during the last 20 years, up to 1992.
Assessment: This is an attractive reference book that critically evaluates the clinical prostaglandin experience compared with other treatment modalities and in combination with other drugs.
