Reviews

“The intended audience is psychiatrists, pharmacologists, immunologists, counselors, toxicologists, social workers, addiction specialists, and all medical professionals working with patients with drug addictions. … This is the first book, and a most comprehensive one, about the research and development of biologics to treat substance use disorders and overdose. Hopefully, biologics will be part of the therapeutic armamentarium that healthcare providers can use in the treatment of their patients with these disorders.” (Michael Easton, Doody's Book Reviews, June, 2016)
