Twelve years have elapsed since the appearance of the first volume and it is with great pleasure that the Editor is now able to present volume 15. During these twelve years various fields of drug research have undergone important, partly revolutionary, changes. A number of these have already been dealt with, so that the series PROGRESS IN DRUG RESEARCH contains a comprehensive review of a substantial part of our current knowledge. The Editor is particularly grateful for the opportunity of transmitting to those connected with the development of drugs the extensive knowledge of the Authors, who, without exception, are themselves actively engaged in research. Drug research is currently in a state of transformation: reconsideration in the light of the past and reorientation with a view to the future. To a large extent this is due to the tumultuous developments in the last 20 years, developments which are unparalleled in the history of medicine and the consequences of which cannot yet be completely evaluated. Unfortunately, however, the current situation is not devoid of its unpleasant and even tragic aspects, aspects which fall outside the research worker's sphere or influence. Those connected with drug research, be they in industry, in universities or in clinics, are aware of these problems, and, as a result of this awareness, are all the more in need of an aid which will assist them in ascertaining the current position and in fixing future goals.

Migräne und Kopfschmerzen betreffen uns alle: direkt oder indirekt, medizinisch, aber auch volkswirtschaftlich. Dieses Buch gibt Aufschluss über die verschiedenen Arten von Kopfschmerzen und deren Behandlung. Es bietet ein breites Spektrum an Themen – von der Diagnose und der Behandlung bis zur philosophischen Beleuchtung und geschichtlichen Aufarbeitung der Kopfschmerzen – sowie Spezialthemen wie Frau und Migräne und Kopfschmerzen bei Kindern. Zudem führt es durch das breit gefächerte, multimodale Therapiespektrum der Schul- und Komplementärmedizin und bietet Hilfe in Notfallsituationen. Ebenso dient es als Orientierungs- und Interpretationshilfe im Informationsdschungel des Internets sowie der Wissensvertiefung. Behilflich dabei sind Abbildungen und wissenschaftliche Zeichnungen, die entwickelt wurden, um die komplexen Zusammenhänge besser verstehen zu können. Migräne & Kopfschmerzen ist ein, im deutschsprachigen Raum, einmaliges Nachschlagewerk, welches umfassend, kompetent und leicht verständlich durch die Thematik führt und mit detailreichen Illustrationen besticht.

With people aged 65 years and older currently making up the fastest growing age group throughout the world, the demographic revolution of an aging society will inevitably lead to increased pressure to develop a rationalistic and age-tailored process of diagnosis and treatment among the elderly. As aging people often suffer from several chronic diseases and are being treated with multiple medications concurrently, unwanted drug interactions occur more frequently. Whereas recent approaches have recommended to remove particular drugs from the medication regimen to avoid adverse effects, Drug Therapy for the Elderly underlines both indispensable and dispensable elements of drug treatment in order to provide an overall assessment of drugs suitable for the aged. In view of the multimorbidity and polypharmacy situations experienced by elderly patients, this book takes into account the special needs and requirements shown by this group, thus serving as a timely reference for physicians who treat the elderly.
