Written by highly experienced researchers in the field, this outstandingly informative and up-to-date text is an essential component for good scientific research. Some areas are relatively new and have never previously been incorporated into a practical text book- these include blood cholesterol lowering, liver protecting and oestrogenic activity and anti-platelet testing. These have been treated in greater depth although classical pharmacological methods are also included. The book is referenced to original papers, reviews and standard textbooks where useful, giving pointers to further in-depth theoretical and therapeutic literature.
