This volume reviews selected areas of insulin pharmacology, including insulin chemistry, structure, secretion by beta cells, receptor interaction, molecular biology and cellular responses. The reviews are authoritative and up-to-date. It maintains a manageable size in spite of the extent of the subject covered, by focussing on areas that have made particularly rapid progress in recent years, and reviewing these in broad yet concise fashion.
