Molecular biology has expanded the horizons of anaesthesia during the last
20 years and has led to an increase of basic science articles that are
published in the specialised anaesthetic journals or originate in
anaesthetic institutions. We searched for and analysed the specific
features, such as year of publication, publishing journal, and country of
origin, of all such molecular biology articles stored in the MEDLINE
database during the period 19862002. We identified 1265 original articles
that used molecular biology techniques; 223 (18%) of these articles were
published in anaesthetic journals and 1042 (82%) articles in 556 other
biomedical journals. While in the late 1980s only a few molecular biology
articles were published each year by anaesthetic institutions, worldwide
this number reached approximately 200 basic science articles by the end of
2002. The USA clearly dominates the field of anaesthesia with respect to
molecular biology research with 839 (66%) such articles.
