The speedily burgeoning study of the earlier 20 years on agonist-antagonist analgesics and opioid receptors makes this exhaustive evaluation of opioid anal gesics quite proper and well timed. After an introductory bankruptcy the extra 12 chapters commence logically with morphine and congeners (4- epoxymorphinans) and finish with opioid receptors.

W h i l e it is by n o means practical for general use, it is quite specific for sodium channel blockers, offers a moderate degree o f resolution among them, is quantitative, requires n o sample cleanup, and for the majority o f the saxitoxins is the most sensitive detection method available. U n f o r tunately, it is not well suited to complex mixtures and requires expensive, dedicated equipment, and about two days effort by a qualified investigator to obtain a result. In summary, analyses for the saxitoxins provide information that, i n principle, is clear and readily interpreted while the design and interpretation o f assays for the saxitoxins is complicated by the multiplicity o f the toxins, their differing properties, and the variations i n toxin composition that w i l l be encountered.
A c c o u n t s have recently appeared describing bacteria, isolated from toxic dinoflagellates, that produce the saxitoxins, although the levels reported so far are quite l o w (55). Thus, w h i l e dinoflagellates are clearly the proximate source o f the saxitoxins that accumulate to high levels i n filter-feeders, they may not be the sole o r ultimate source o f the saxitoxins i n the marine environment. ) T h e c o m p o s i t i o n o f the saxitoxins, the relative p r o p o r t i o n o f the various derivatives, found i n Alexandrium differs from strain to strain and appears to be a useful, fairly conservative characteristic for distinguishing among strains and among the populations from which they are obtained.
