The papers in this volume comprise invited reviews as well as original research papers presented at the Vanadium Symposium held July 29-31, 1994.
Vanadium is a trace element and its compounds have been shown to exert a wide variety of insulin-like effects including the ability to lower hyperglycemia in several experimental models of diabetes mellitus. Because of the possibility that vanadium compounds may be able to serve as potential therapeutic agents for the treatment of diabetes, and possibly other diseases, this trace element has attracted the attention of biomedical researchers from a variety of fields. The Vanadium Symposium 1994 was therefore organized to facilitate exchange of ideas and increase interaction among researchers of different disciplines actively engaged in studying the biological actions of vanadium compounds.
The papers are written by leading vanadium researchers and are grouped into three main sections: the chemistry, biochemical and physiological aspects, and potential therapeutic use and toxic effects of vanadium compounds. A good source of information on vanadium chemistry and biology.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

This special issue of Molecular and Cellular Biochemistry; An International Journal for Chemical Biology in Health and Disease, v.153, nos.1-2, 1995, contains invited reviews as well as original research papers presented at the Vanadium Symposium 1994, held July 1994, in Montreal. Vanadium is a trace element attracting the attention of biomedical researchers from a variety of fields, because its compounds have been shown to exert a variety of insulin-like effects, including the ability to lower hyperglycemia in several experimental models of diabetes mellitus. Thirty contributions are grouped in three sections, the first dealing with the chemistry, the second containing studies on the biochemical and physiological aspects, and the last addressing the potential therapeutic use and toxic effects of vanadium compounds.
