Description

This is an overview of the general pharmacochemical approach to drug response and metabolism influenced by steroids. Emphasis is placed on the molecular-biochemical aspects of this phenomena. The authors also examine other circumstances in which steroids are involved from a historical viewpoint. They discuss the effects of steroids as protection against intoxication, their spectrum and potency, their therapeutic potential and some quantitative structure activity relationships. An examination of the effects of protective steroids against poisoning by environmental pollutants concludes the text.show more
