Scientific knowledge is ever-changing. The editors of the Publications have consulted sources believed to be reliable in their efforts to provide information that is complete and in accord with the standards accepted at the time of the publication. However, in view of the possibility of human error by the authors, editors, or publisher of the work herein, or changes in scientific knowledge, neither the editors or publisher, nor any other party who has been involved in the preparation of this work, warrants that the information contained herein is in every respect accurate or complete, and they are not responsible for any errors or omissions or for the results obtained from use of such information.

Medicine is an ever-changing science undergoing continual development. Research and clinical experience are continually expanding our knowledge, in particular our knowledge of proper treatment and drug therapy. Insofar as a book mentions any dosage or application, readers may rest assured that the authors, editors, and publishers have made every effort to ensure that such references are in accordance with the state of knowledge at the time of production of a book. Nevertheless this does not involve, imply, or express any guarantee or responsibility on the part of the publishers in respect of any dosage instructions and forms of application stated in a book. Every user is requested to examine carefully the manufacturers' leaflets accompanying each drug and to check, if necessary in consultation with a physician or specialist, whether the dosage schedules mentioned therein or the contraindications stated by the manufacturers differ from the statements made in a present book. Such examination is particularly important with drugs that are either rarely used or have been newly released on the market. Every dosage schedule or every form of application used is entirely at the user's own risk and responsibility. The authors and publishers request every user to report to the publishers any discrepancies or inaccuracies noticed.

We make every effort to convert the printed books accurately. It is, however, possible, especially in the HTML pages, that errors relating to conversion or appearance can occur. We also ask you to be aware of the fact that some internet browsers do not always correctly display certain symbols (e.g. mathematical symbols, Greek letters, etc.). If you found an error relating to presentation and would like to inform us, we would greatly appreciate your feedback.
