This is the first book on molluscs as sources for pharmaceutical drugs. Marine molluscs are very promising candidates for a wide range of biotechnological applications. For example, they possess analgesic drugs more potent than morphine and very effective anticancer agents. International experts provide coverage of the most stimulating topics related to molluscs. This knowledge of their history and current studies opens the door to the future.

This is the first book to summarize the progress of research on the delta opioid receptor  (DOR) to date. This receptor, a member of the opioid receptor family, was not studied at all until the 1990s when some researchers began looking into the role that it plays in neuroprotection and other functions. Many scientists from a number of independent labs have now confirmed that DOR can provide neuroprotection from hypoxic/ischemic injuries.... more...
