In July 1994, the Canadian Inflammation Society in Toronto hosted a symposium entitled "Novel molecular approaches to anti-inflammatory therapy" as a satellite of the xnth International Congress of Pharmacology. For several reasons the above topic was singled out and separated from the general Congress. Major advances have recently been made in the understanding of inflammatory mechanisms. These advances serve as the basis for a new generation of therapeutic agents which may potentially alter our approach to inflammatory processes and infectious diseases. The Satellite Symposium focused on recent advances in diversified fields including arachidonate metabolites, actions of cytokines, chemokines, cellular adhesion molecules and novel molecular approaches in the therapy of inflammation. Scholarly addresses were presented by eminent experts in their respective fields. In this book are included 17 papers which describe in detail novel approaches to the study of inflammation. We hope that this book will serve not only as a summary of present knowledge, but will stimulate both scientists and clinicians to continue their efforts to battle inflammatory diseases. W.
