Product Description: Examine the strong evidence of this unrealized pain management tool

Cholecystokinin (CCK), the regulatory peptide hormone found primarily in the gastrointestinal tract that works as a neurotransmitter throughout the nervous system, has been researched for years. CCK antagonists in conjunction with opioids are beginning to be seen as having possible major therapeutic benefits in pain management. Cholecystokinin and Its Antagonists in Pain Management is an extensive examination that gathers the mounting compelling evidence into one comprehensive source. Here researchers, neuroscientists, physicians, and pharmacy professionals are given the research and findings they need to explore the possible applications of CCK antagonists for a variety of illnesses.

Cholecystokinin and Its Antagonists in Pain Management extensively describes opioids in pain management, CCK and the body's uses for the chemical, CCK receptor antagonists, and the evidence that points to its being a possible breakthrough application in pain management. Various animal studies are offered that present a convincing view of what may be the future of chronic pain management, with less side effects and a reduction in analgesic tolerance than when opioids are used alone. Potential uses of CCK antagonists are clearly discussed. The book is comprehensively referenced and provides several tables and graphs to fully illustrate the research findings.

Topics in Cholecystokinin and Its Antagonists in Pain Management include:
  • in vivo localization of CCK
  • CCK as a gut and nervous system peptide
  • factors that increase CCK
  • anti-opioid effects
  • CCK receptor antagonists
  • pro-analgesic effect of CCK antagonists
  • CCK antagonists reducing analgesic tolerance to opioids
  • safety of combining opioids and CCK antagonists
  • human clinical application of CCK antagonists

Cholecystokinin and Its Antagonists in Pain Management is a crucial source of the latest information and research results on CCK that is certain to be important for neuroscientists, clinicians, and pharmaceutical industry professionals.

1. How do textbook rentals work?
It’s simple. Begin by searching for your textbook by ISBN (10 or 13-digit number that can be found on the back cover of each book), title, author or keyword. Next select how long you would like to rent the book then add it to your cart. Repeat for each book you’re looking for. After completing the order we’ll ship them to you and you’ll also receive a prepaid mailer. Return your books in the mailer by your rental due date.
2. Is renting a textbook better than purchasing it?
We offer both! You can buy or rent the book through Campus Book Rentals. It’s up to you to decide which option best meets your educational needs.
3. How do I track my order?
Login to your account here, you’ll see your current rentals listed textbook rentals listed with a yellow box that says “track”.

4. How do I return my books?
When you rent textbooks from Campus Book Rentals you’ll receive a prepaid mailer.

If you don’t receive a mailer you can print a return label from your account. Return shipping is prepaid so please use either of the two methods to ensure they arrive at the correct facility.
5. Can I write or highlight in my book?
Of course! Just remember that future students will rent the same book after you, so please be respectful.

8. Do access codes or other supplements come with a textbook rental?
One time use access codes and other supplemental materials are NOT included with rental books and must be purchased separately.
9. What if I don’t return my rental?
If your book rental is not returned by the due date, your credit card will be charged a non-return fee, equal to the replacement value for the book.
10. Can I purchase my book after I rent it?
Certainty! You’re only charged the difference between what you already paid and the value of the book at the time you initially rented. Login to your account and choose to purchase your book and it’ll walk you through the checkout process.
