Dear BIOMCH-L List readers:

Some of you may be familiar with my introductory book on
"biocompatibility" (title above) which is
in its 3rd. edition (Marcel Dekker: 1999). I have decided to prepare a
new edition (4th) which
should be ready for use for the Spring semester of 2006. It will be
priced below 100USD to make
it more accessible to students than the current one.

I would appreciate hearing from you concerning your experience with the
3rd edition: Please
advise me of mistakes, errors, omissions, etc. If you used it in a
course which you took or taught,
I would very much appreciate receiving: course title, level,
institution and brief topical outline.

I would also welcome any suggestions about possible additional topics
(related to "bopcpmpatibiity") for the new edition and relevant survey
articles (to add to chapter bibliographies) published in English SINCE
1998 (with full citations please!).

I will accumulate all answers received by December 31, 2004 and the top
three most helpful
people will each receive an autographed copy of the 4th edition when it
appears late next year.

Please feel free to pass this request on to students or colleagues who
are not BIOMCH-L

Thanks, in advance, for all of your helpful suggestions.
