One of the most vexing questions regarding the action of drugs on biological systems is why one species may differ from another in its reactivity to specific chemical compounds. Comparative pharmacology has deep historical roots, counting Claude Bernard, I. P. Pavlov, and Paul Ehrlich amongst the early practitioners of this discipline. Ironically, the modern discipline of clinical pharmacology has been both facilitated and hindered by the need to extrapolate data obtained from studies in animal models to man.
The two volumes of Comparative Pharmacology contain contributions from 29 authors, many of whom are well regarded in their respective subject areas.
