Clinical Research on Dependence-Producing Drugs

Part of the Advances in Experimental Medicine and Biology book series (AEMB, volume 20)


It is impossible in a brief statement to consider every aspect of clinical research on drug dependence that ought to be developed. However, because of the changes in the agents which give rise to drug abuse, stress must be laid on the importance of research in clinical pharmacology with specific reference to man, In this paper the author will touch on only a few concrete aspects of such research as they emerge from experience in his own country, which has recently seen new types of drug addiction develop and has had to organize research in a sphere which had hitherto posed no problems.
