This book documents the latest developments in SP research presented at the International Interdisciplinary Substance P Symposium in Dublin, attended by scientists from more that 20 countries. Substance P, the first brain-gut peptide, was discovered by U S von Euler and J H Gaddum in 1931. About 2,000 articles have been published since then and, at present, Substance P is the third most active field in Life Sciences. The most exciting areas are the roles of Substance P in sensory and autonomic neurotransmission, and in central and peripheral endocrine regulations, and naturally these aspects are covered in this book.
