After an introductory bankruptcy the extra 12 chapters commence logically with morphine and congeners (4- epoxymorphinans) and finish with opioid receptors. All vital chemical forms of centrally performing analgesics (including endogenous opioid-like elements) and their antagonists in addition to the combined agonist-antagonists are taken care of completely, even though now not continuously (and for solid cause) in ancient (chrono­ logical) order. A bankruptcy on miscellaneous kinds (atypical buildings for the main half) contains the benzimidazoles (etonitazene), aminotetralins (dezocine), tetrahydroisoquinolines (methopholine), etc. vital elements and correlations of chemistry, pharmacology, and biochemistry are mentioned extensive. Literature citations are a number of. For educators, practising laboratory scientists, and physicians, this scholarly evaluate by way of authors good of opioid analgesics versed within the chemistry, pharmacology, and biochemistry should be informative, stimulating, and thought-provoking.
