This comprehensive reference work, updated from the first edition, brings together the knowledge and expertise of contributors from around the world. It includes new topics such as prostaglandin synthetase enzyme, new synthetic eicosanoids, innovative analytical methods, the influence of cytokines in the regulation of synthesis and actions, newer eicosanoids that influence the cardiovascular system, and newly discovered roles in reproduction and interactions with nitric oxide. This book satisfies a surge of interest in prostaglandins. NSAIDS (e.g. aspirin) are the biggest selling drugs of all time, and the field has been refreshed by the advent of new types (selective COX-2 inhibitors, anti-leukotiene drugs).

"Investigators with either or a basic or clinical interest in the metabolism of essential fatty acids and eicosanoid production have all such information at hand in this excellent compendium." (New England Journal of Medicine, March 17, 2005) " serves to effectively communicate the most current information on eicosanoids in an understandable manner." (E-STREAMS, September 2004)
