Overview

Volume 25 in the series http://www.elsevier.com/locate/series/sedaSide Effects of Drugs Annuals continues to serve the goal that is set for it: 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 misleading.

Special features of the current annual are

  • an essay by Dr Lara Marks, entitled 'The pill: untangling the adverse effects of a drug', invaluable for all workers in the field of Women's health and birth control, and
  • a review of the adverse effects of Anthracycline Antibiotics by Dr Fraser and Dr Twelves, published as part of the chapter on 'Cytostatics' by Dr Andrew Stanley.

Other important features of this Annual are the many special reviews. An index of Special Reviews is published in the book. 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. The current Annual is enriched with the infamous 'Drug Index' and 'Index of Adverse Drug Reactions'.
Side Effects of Drugs Annual 25 is the second update of the encyclopaedic volume http://www.elsevier.nl/locate/isbn/0444500936Meyler's Side Effects of Drugs, Fourteenth Edition, which was published in 2000.
