Interview with Dr Gertrude B Elion, who worked on anti-cancer agents and anti-viral agents at the Wellcome laboratories in the US. Dr Elion explains briefly how she came to work at Wellcome. She talks about her anti-cancer work at the small laboratory in Tacahoe and the subsequent larger, better-equipped one in North Carolina. After the arrival of Dr Schaeffer they began work on anti-viral agents. She suggests reasons why the Wellcome laboratories were so successful, emphasising the lack of pressure and the freedom they had. She laments that the bureaucracy of the FDA frustrates research now

Purine and Pyrimidine Metabolism in Man VII Chemotherapy, Atp Depletion, and Gout by R. Angus Harkness( )

1 edition published in 1991 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

These two volumes record the scientific and clinical work presented at the VIIth International and 3rd European joint symposium on purine and pyrimidine metabolism in man held at the Bournemouth International Conference Centre, Bournemouth, UK, from 30th June to 5th July 1991. The series of international meetings at three yearly intervals have previously been held initially in 1973 in Israel, then Austria, Spain, the Netherlands, USA and Japan. The European society for the Study of Purine and Pyrimidine Metabolism in Man (ESSPPM) which has its own executive and some finance first met in Switzerland in 1987, then in Germany in 1989. The steady evolution of the science in this series of meetings is intellectually satisfying; the subsequent clinical progress is emotionally and economically reassuring. As befits the position of purines and pyrimidines at the centre of biochemistry, there has been steady scientific development into molecular genetics and now onto developmental controls and biochemical pharmacology. The complexities of the immune system are being unravelled but an understanding of the human brain largely eludes us. Laboratory based scientists now predominate over those who work as clinical specialists in vii rheumatology, immunology, oncology and paediatrics. However, there continue to be major clinical objectives since large sections are concerned with major causes of death like ATP depletion, cancer and now AIDS; the laboratory work is providing clinical solutions
