Overview


Autonomic & Autacoid Pharmacology is an international journal dealing with the interactions of drugs and related substances with the central and peripheral divisions of the autonomic nervous system and its effector organs and tissues. All aspects of basic experimental pharmacology in intact animals, isolated tissues and biochemical systems of tissue fractions are covered. This includes the effects of drugs acting on the autonomic nervous system and its effector organs in humans.


Aims and Scope


Autonomic & Autacoid Pharmacology is an international journal dealing with the interactions of drugs and related substances with the central and peripheral divisions of the autonomic nervous system and its effector organs and tissues. All aspects of basic experimental pharmacology in intact animals, isolated tissues and biochemical systems of tissue fractions are covered. This includes the effects of drugs acting on the autonomic nervous system and its effector organs in humans.

The drugs under examination are primarily those with actions on the cardiovascular, respiratory and gastrointestinal systems of the body. The effector organs of the autonomic nervous system is interpreted in its widest sense to include substances affecting smooth and cardiac muscle in general.

The scope of the journal has widened to include the pharmacology of autacoids including angiotensin, endothelin, kinins, prostaglandins, leukotrienes, opioids, cytokines, histamine and 5-hydroxytryptamine.

Effective with the 2012 volume, Autonomic & Autacoid Pharmacology will be published in an online-only format.


Readership


The journal is concerned with the dissemination of significant new findings relating to the interaction of drugs and related agents with both the central and peripheral divisions of the mammalian autonomic nervous system and its effector organs and tissues. The readership includes approximately 80% academics and 20% research scientists.
