About these proceedings


An "International Conference on Physiological and Regulatory Functions of Adenosine and Adenine Nucleotides" was held in Banff, Canada, in June 1978. Four years later, in June 1982, an "International Symposium on Adenosine" took place in Charlottesville, Virginia, USA. Both meetings revealed an increasing interest of scientists from numerous disciplines on biochemical, physiological and pathophysiological aspects of adenosine as a proposed mediator of various specified regulatory functions, both on the cellular and organ level. In view of the obvious continuity of adenosine research in well-established and newly emerging fields, a scientific committee was charged with organizing a further meeting to be held in Munich, Germany, in June 1986. Members of the committee were H. P. Baer, Canada, R. M. Berne, USA, and E. Gerlach, G. W. Kreutzberg and J. Schrader, FRG. It was the general intention that in this conference, purposely named "3rd International Symposium on Adenosine", emphasis should be placed on the presentation of shorter reports concerning both latest as well as controversial aspects and developments in as wide a scope of adenosine research as possible. Therefore, in addition to more than 50 presentations by invited speakers, over 120 posters were displayed. Coinciding with the symposium, abstracts of all contributions were published in Pfltigers Archiv - European Journal of Physiology [Vol. 407, Suppl. 1, 1986]. This book, entitled "Topics and Perspectives in Adenosine Research", now enholds all papers presented at the 3rd International Symposium on Adenosine, together with the complete discussions following each talk.
