Produktbeschreibung
Arterial disease and inflammation are fundamental causes of many medical conditions. Recently, there have been several major advances in our understanding of the causes of diseases affecting the heart, lungs, kidneys, skin and blood vessels. The role of endothelium derived growth factors, nitric oxide and other messengers in vascular disease has been more clearly defined. New treatments targeting these molecular disorders are being used with beneficial effects. Further progress depends on a combined approach embracing basic and clinical research so that treatments of common, important diseases can be designed intelligently and logically. "Vascular Complications in Human Disease" presents our understanding of vascular disease, in reviews of the main strands of basic and clinical research written by leading international experts. It also identifies routes for further fruitful research and development. This concise and carefully edited book, avoiding repetition, includes the full spectrum of basic research which is not covered in other textbooks. TOC:Therapy for Pulmonary Vascular Disease.- Nitric Oxide Axis in Cardio-Pulmonary Disease.- Endothelin Signalling in the Cardiomyocyte.- TGF-beta/BMP Signalling in Pulmonary Vascular Disease.- The Endothelin System in Chronic Kidney Disease.- Endothelial Activation in Inflammation.- Pathogenic Mediators of Vessel Sclerosis.- Control of Interstitial Fluid Homeostasis.- Vascular Complications of Systemic Sclerosis.- Therapeutic Options for Preventing Transplant-Related Progressive Renal and Vascular Injury.- Current State of Medical Therapies for Peripheral Vascular Disease.- Advantages of Harvesting the Saphenous Vein for Coronary Artery Bypass Surgery Using the "No- Touch" Technique.- Towards the Prevention of Vein Graft Failure.- Statins and Cholesterol.- Endothelin-1 Promoting Actions in the Growth and Angiogenesis of Solid Cancers.- Gene Therapy for Apolipoprotein A-I and HDL - The Ultimate Treatment for Atherosclerosis?- Ets Family of Transcription Factors and Vascular System.- The Aortic Valve: From Function to Tissue Engineering.

Rezensionen
From the reviews:

"This book on vascular biology as it relates to common complications of vascular diseases is divided into six sections addressing vascular complications in the pulmonary, renal, and cardiac systems as well as transplanted organs. ... The book is aimed at both basic and clinical scientists as well as clinicians in several different specialties. ... the book is most valuable for research scientists. ... This is an excellent book for basic or clinical scientists ... ." (Audrey Rosinberg, Doody's Review Service, October, 2009)
