Autonomic and Autacoid Pharmacology (formerly Journal of Autonomic Pharmacology) is an international journal dealing with the interactions of drugs and related substances with the central and peripheral divisions of the autonomic nervous system and its effector organs and tissues. All aspects of basic experimental pharmacology in intact animals, isolated tissues and biochemical systems of tissue fractions are covered. This includes the effects of drugs acting on the autonomic nervous system and its effector organs in humans. The drugs under examination are primarily those with actions on the cardiovascular, respiratory and gastrointestinal systems of the body. The effector organs of the autonomic nervous system is interpreted in its widest sense to include substances affecting smooth and cardiac muscle in general. The scope of the journal has widened to include the pharmacology of autacoids including angiotensin, endothelin, kinins, prostaglandins, leukotrienes, opioids, cytokines, histamine and 5-hydroxytryptamine.
