Pharmacology of the skin
This book presents a balanced, state-of-the-art summary of pharmacology as it relates to the skin. Topics discussed include structure of the skin and its barrier function; model systems for research in skin pharmacology; the drug metabolizing capability of the skin, skin pharmacology in health and disease; the role of oxidants and antioxidants in the skin; immunopharmacology of the skin; signal transduction, protein kinase C and the role of the eicosanoid receptors in skin; and cutaneous chemical- and photo-carcinogenesis. Pharmacology of the Skin provides essential information for investigators working in cutaneous biology, investigative and clinical dermatologists, pharmacologists, pharmacists, biochemists, and workers in the pharmaceutical industry engaged in drug development.
