At the IPSCON 2015 meeting at Rajkot, the Secretary General of IUPHAR, Pr Michael Spedding and the President of IPS, Dr Dinesh Kumar, the General Secretary Dr Bhagirath Patel, with the Chief Editor of the Indian Journal of Pharmacology (IJP), Dr Chetna Desai, agreed that IJP would use IUPHAR receptor nomenclature. Each author seeking to publish an article in IJP, should check that the name of the receptor or drug target is the officially approved name or abbreviation, which is listed on the IUPHAR website: www.guidetopharmacology.org. This website has been built up over several years using the experience and recommendations of more than 90 expert subcommittees representing the freely given efforts of over 700 scientists. IUPHAR and Indian Pharmacological Society are joining together in an alliance to create web-based learning facilities to advance Indian science and health care.
Furthermore, the Guidetopharmacology website lists all the drug binding sites in the human genome, with the best ligands to use to explore their function, and this freely available web-site is available to all scientists, teachers and students as a continuously-updated web resource.
