Overview

This book provides a detailed picture of this marketplace. Grouped by their medicinal use and biological activity, over 8,000 drugs in common use around the world are described. For each, the chemical name and a list of trade names and synonyms are provided; the CAS Registry Number and the European Inventory of Existing Chemical Substances (EINECS) Number are given; the physical properties of each compound are described, and the known biological activity and indicated applications are presented. Indexes, including a master index of name and synonyms, are appended.

This compendium will be invaluable to physicians, research chemists, biologists and the lay public who, starting with a single synonym for a drug, will be able to quickly find a thumbnail sketch of the essential information concerning the agent.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
The culmination of decades of research at the Chinese Academy of Sciences, this reference contains data on about 6,800 chemicals that are known to be present in 1,500 medicinally useful plants or animals, and which are thought to be responsible for the medical effect of the species or its extracts. It also provides descriptions of the chemistry of the major active components and the mode of action of the medicines, thus making possible a synthesis of Chinese and Western medicinal chemistry and providing strong rationales for new drug development. Four indexes list traditional Chinese medicines by Chinese and English names, origin, and chemicals. Compiled by X. Yan, J. Zhou and G. Xie of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, and edited by Milne, editor-in-chief of the American Chemical Society's . Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
