These volumes, entitled "Purine Metabolism in guy IV" con­ tain the papers provided on the Fourth foreign Symposium on Human Purine and Pyrimidine Metabolism", held in Maastricht (The Netherlands), June 1982.

At prior conferences there were guidelines implicating purine metabolism with regards to general cardiac and skeletal muscle functionality. throughout the current assembly mych new info on either matters were re­ ported which point out transparent variations within the pathways of ATP metabo­ lism. The widening of the sphere of curiosity is usually illustrated by means of the hot paintings on infectious illness: exploitation of the variations in purine metabolic pathways in sure parasites in comparison with these in human cells has ended in new rationales for remedy being devel­ oped.
