The Role of Electroanalytical Methods in Pharmacy and Food-Control
The use of electroanalytical methods in the broad field of pharmacy has to be estimated with respect to the morbidity and mortality rate of the population of the world. Round about 30,000 diseases including tropical diseases are known. 4,000–8,000 of these diseases are under control by drug therapy. This medication is predominantly symptomatic; only therapy of bacterial infections with the aid of chemotherapeutics and antibiotics is a curative one. The necessity for drug research is focused by the small success in the chemotherapy of cancer. Thirty five percent of patients suffering from cancer may be cured by surgery and/or radiation. With the aid of chemotherapy only 6% of those patients, especially those with metastases, may be healed.
