Nearly 50 years ago, sulfonamides were hailed as `wonder drugs.' They remain the drugs of choice in many situations, and they've led to development of other drugs. Now further research has proved derivatives useful in treating infections, diabetes, glaucoma, epilepsy, heart failure, and high blood pressure.
