Apart from its well-known uses in psychiatry, lithium is being increasingly applied in many branches of medicine, such as cancer therapy, haematology and bone marrow transplantation. In addition, lithium is gaining recognition as a nutritionally essential trace element. Epidemiological studies indicate that it may even play a role in human and criminal behaviour. This book presents these new dimensions in biomedical lithium research to an interdisciplinary readership. Also included is a discussion of the toxicological aspects of lithium - a vital consideration due to their potentially far-reaching consequences for human and animal health.
