In 1978, we had the 1st study assembly of guanidine compound research in Okayama, Japan. the aim of the assembly was once to standardize the tools of examining guanidino compounds, as the analytic equipment, even, for instance, that of standard plasma, have been relatively various from laboratory to laboratory at the moment. greater than ten laboratories joined during this examine venture. Thereafter, the aim of the yearly conferences used to be prolonged to hide common biochemistry of guanidino compounds, and each assembly has served to advertise our mutual development and development. The final assembly of the Japan Guanidino Compounds study organization in 1982 introduced jointly greater than eighty individuals, and approximately 30 papers have been offered there. This, the sixth annual assembly, brings the foreign Symposium on Guani­ dino Compounds right here to Tokyo. lately, many scientists are engaged within the learn of guanidine compounds, in particular within the box of medical bio­ chemistry. i'm yes that the remark of guanidinosuccinic acid within the urine of uremic sufferers by means of Dr. Cohen's study team in 1963 ignited the new exploration of the function of guanidino compounds in renal illnesses.
