The tetracyclines have an illustrious heritage as healing brokers which dates again over part a century. first and foremost stumbled on as an antibiotic in 1947, the 4­ ringed molecule has captured the partiality of chemists and biologists over the resultant many years. Of additional curiosity, as defined within the bankruptcy by means of George Armelagos, tetracyclines have been already a part of prior cultures, 1500-1700 years in the past, as published in strains of drug present in Sudanese Nubian mummies. the variety of chapters which this e-book offers to the reader may still illus­ trate the numerous disciplines that have tested and visible advantages from those interesting typical molecules. From antibacterial to anti inflammatory to anti­ autoimmunity to gene law, tetracyclines were changed and redesigned for varied novel houses. a few have known as this molecule a biol­ ogist's dream as a result of its versatility, yet others have obvious it as a chemist's nightmare as a result of artificial chemistry demanding situations and "chameleon-like" homes (see the bankruptcy via S. Schneider).
