About these proceedings

Introduction

Clinical pharmacology is not primarily characterized by a particular methodology, but rather by the aims it pursues. Cooperation with scientists in other fields is thus essential. The symposium "Epidemiological Concepts in Clinical Pharmacology" (November 28-29, 1985) was organized by the Institute of Clinical Pharmacology of the Free University of Berlin to acknowledge the increasing impact of epidemio­ logical methods and thinking on clinical pharmacology. The editors are glad that all the presentations of the leading experts can now be made available to a broader rea­ dership. Neither the symposium itself nor publication of the proceedings would have been possible without the generous support received from the Paul-Martini-Stif­ tung and from the Free University of Berlin. To these institutions we owe deep grati­ tude. The expert guidance we received from Dr. Ute Heilmann of Springer-Verlag is also gladly acknowledged. Berlin, November 1986 H.Kewitz I. Roots K.
