The First Adalat Symposium held in Tokyo in 1973, presented important experimental and clinical results which had been collected in Europe and Japan with the new coronary therapeutic agent. The European scientists had an opportunity to discuss the problems and results personally with their Japanese colleagues. The Second Adalat Symposium was held in Amsterdam within a year with the purpose of bringing together mainly scientists within Europe. The results discussed in Tokyo have been extended and supplemented through additional experiences. Contributions in basic science are presented, but most important are those clinical studies, which support and extend proof of the drug's efficacy in humans. The editors wish to express their appreciation to all those responsible for contributing to this report and, in particular, to Dr. M. SPENGLER, Dr. F. EBNER and Dr. K. BRANDAU for their editorial help, and to Dr. W. BOTTGER for the preparation of the Subject Index. We hope that this publication will be a valuable contribution toward conveying information to physicians and scientists. DiisseldorfjWuppertal, Autumn 1975 W. LOCHNER' W BRAASCH' G.
