The Journal of Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics has asked the ASPET divisions to participate in a new feature for the journal that started in Jan of 2000 entitled Perspectives in Pharmacology (PiP). These articles, published monthly, are brief overviews of topics of contemporary interest to our readers. The first PiP article sponsored by the Division for Drug Metabolism was contributed by Phillip M. Gerk and Mary Vore, Graduate Center for Toxicology, University of Kentucky, Lexington KY, and it has now been published in JPET [Gerk & Vore. Regulation of expression of the multidrug resistance-associated protein 2 (MRP2) and its role in drug disposition. JPET 302(2): 407-15, 2002]. The Division is now soliciting suggestions for authors and/or topics for future division-sponsored PiP articles. Send suggestions to David Riddick, email@example.com.
