Lung Metabolism: Proteolysis and Antiproteolysis Biochemical Pharmacology Handling of Bioactive Substances focuses on studies on the response of the lung relative to the management of bioactive substances.
Divided into three sections with 35 chapters, the book focuses first on proteolysis and antiproteolysis in the lung. Concerns include properties and role of antiproteases; role of leucoproteases in the development of emphysema; and the genetic and clinical considerations of alpha1-antitrypsin deficiencies. The second section focuses on biochemical pharmacology of the lung. Concerns include pulmonary drug-metabolizing enzymes; carrier for oxygen and carbon monoxide in the lung; and metabolism of drugs administered by aerosol. The last section looks at the handling of bioactive substances by the lung. Covered areas include the pharmacokinetic function of the lung; biosynthesis and metabolism of prostaglandins in the lung; and importance and nature of the mechanism of inactivation of prostaglandins in the lung.
The book is a vital source of information for readers interested in studying the metabolism of the lung.
