Abstract

DECEMBER 1988 Drug receptors and the inhibition of nerve cells R. Alan North Vollum Institute, Oregon Health Sciences University, Portland, Oregon 97201, U.S.A. Introduction It would be trite indeed to say much to this audience of the contributions to pharmacology made by Sir John Gaddum. His quantitative approaches to the study of drug antagonism have found their way into most textbooks of pharmacology. I dare say that, if asked to define that aspect of the subject which is uniquely 'pharmacology'-a task of increasing difficulty in these interdisciplinary days-many Society members would think first of those quantitative methods for studying drug-receptor interactions spawned by A.J. Clark, tested with antagonists by John Gaddum, and much popularized by Heinz Schild (Clark, 1933; Gaddum, 1937; 1957; Schild, 1949).
