Inflammation: A Review of the Process
Quintessence Publishing Company, Jan 1, 1997 - Medical - 236 pages
Combining their backgrounds in pathology and education, Drs Trowbridge and Emling have created a comprehensive "self-study" program in inflammation. Chapters build on the reader's basic medical science background, and strategically placed "self-tests" allow readers to pause and test their comprehension before advancing to new material. Useful metaphors, informative illustrations, and a new clinical-connections section make this book an ideal refresher for busy clinicians and an indispensable study aid for graduate students preparing for specialty board examinations.
