Your health is always your concern and not your doctor's concern. However, today the people are made to believe that their health depends on doctors and the healthcare system! It has made the people unnecessarily dependent on the medical profession. On the other side the healthcare system has become extremely expensive, and the issues of health have become too technical and complicated for the common man to comprehend. However, this should not dishearten you since you can learn to maintain your health WITHOUT depending on doctors, medicines or hospitals. And you can do this by simply learning to think holistically and by taking the simple self-help measures that can restore your health and keep you healthy. The know-how on how you can do it is adequately provided in this book.
Recent years have seen enormous advances in the field of protein and peptide engineering and a greater understanding in the way in which biological response modifiers function in the body. It is now possible through the use of recombinant DNA techniques, or by solid phase protein synthesis, to produce significant quantities of a wide variety of regulatory agents that are therapeutically applicable. The list of these response modifiers expands almost daily to include interferons, macrophage activation factors, neuropeptides and agents that may have potential in cardiovascular disease, inflammation, contraception etc. Prospects to use some of these materials in medicine have reached the stage where products have either been approved by regulatory authorities or are the subject of applications as investigatory drugs or as new therapeutic agents. In some uses the pertinent agent will be administered on an acute basis in the form of a simple injection, as, for example, the use of a tissue plasminogen activator for the treatment of coronary infarct. In other cases regulatory proteins and peptides are indicated for chronic therapy and here they will need to be administered by an appropriate delivery system. Unfortunately, the research on delivery systems for peptides and proteins has not kept pace with the rapid progress in biotechnology and, consequently, there are presently few systems that are entirely appropriate for the administration of macromolecular drugs according to complex dosage regimens, (eg intermittent and pulsed therapy). Furthermore essential pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic data may be missing.
Why are some psychoactive substances regarded as a dangerous drugsa (TM), to be controlled by the criminal law within a global prohibition regime, whilst others a " from alcohol and tobacco, through to those we call a medicinesa (TM) a " are seen and regulated very differently? A History of Drugs traces a genealogy of the construction and governance of the a drug problema (TM) over the past 200 years, calling into question some of the most fundamental ideas in this field: from a addictiona (TM) to the very concept of a drugsa (TM). At the heart of the book is the claim that it was with the emergence in the late eighteenth century of modern liberal capitalism, with its distinctive emphasis on freedom, that our concerns about the consumption of some of these substances began to grow. And, indeed, notions of freedom, free will and responsibility remain central to the drug question today. Pursuing an innovative inter-disciplinary approach, A History of Drugs provides an informed and insightful account of the origins of contemporary drug policy. It will be essential reading for students and academics working in law, criminology, sociology, social policy, history and political science.
