Aminoglycosides : Pharmacology, Clinical Uses and Health Effects

 Pharmacology  Comments Off on Aminoglycosides : Pharmacology, Clinical Uses and Health Effects
Aug 172018
 

Aminoglycosides are a commonly used class of antibiotic worldwide, with examples including gentamicin, tobramycin and amikacin. Their low cost, together with their effectiveness against Gram-negative organisms, including Pseudomonas aeruginosa, makes them a valuable tool in treating infections. In addition, aminoglycosides have demonstrated lower rates of resistance in both community and healthcare settings when compared with many other antimicrobials and exhibit synergistic activity with beta-lactams against certain Gram-positive organisms, such as streptococcus and enterococcus. Unfortunately, aminoglycosides exhibit a narrow therapeutic index, which can result in toxicity if care is not taken with their use. This book reviews the pharmacology, clinical uses and health effects of aminoglycosides.

Chemical Warfare Agents: Pharmacology, Toxicology, and Therapeutics, Second Edition explores the latest methods and products for preventing, diagnosing, and treating the acute and chronic effects of toxic CWA exposure. This edition citesthe key developments in chemical defense research since 2001, including new epidemiological or clinical studies of exposed or potentially exposed populations; new treatment concepts and products; improved organization of the national response apparatus in the U.S. addressing the potential for CWA terrorism; and improved diagnostic tests that enable rapid diagnosis and treatment.
Leading researchers explain how these breakthroughs help researchers determine physiologically relevant detection thresholds and develop more effective countermeasures and national response procedures. Chemical Warfare Agents provides first responders and emergency medical teams with the most up-to-date information they need to prepare for and handle natural disasters, chemical spills, terrorism, and warfare situations―quickly and effectively.

Pharmocracy: Value, Politics, and Knowledge in Global Biomedicine

 Pharmacology  Comments Off on Pharmocracy: Value, Politics, and Knowledge in Global Biomedicine
Jul 262018
 

Continuing his pioneering theoretical explorations into the relationships among biosciences, the market, and political economy, Kaushik Sunder Rajan introduces the concept of pharmocracy to explain the structure and operation of the global hegemony of the multinational pharmaceutical industry. He reveals pharmocracy’s logic in two case studies from contemporary India: the controversial introduction of an HPV vaccine in 2010, and the Indian Patent Office’s denial of a patent for an anticancer drug in 2006 and ensuing legal battles. In each instance health was appropriated by capital and transformed from an embodied state of well-being into an abstract category made subject to capital’s interests. These cases demonstrate the precarious situation in which pharmocracy places democracy, as India’s accommodation of global pharmaceutical regulatory frameworks pits the interests of its citizens against those of international capital. Sunder Rajan’s insights into this dynamic make clear the high stakes of pharmocracy’s intersection with health, politics, and democracy.
