Angiogenesis and Cardiovascular Disease

Oxford University Press, 1999 - Medical - 360 pages
Angiogenesis and Cardiovascular Disease provides a comprehensive revie w of the basic scientific and clinical advances in the field of angiog enesis, and its role in the human cardiovascular system. The material presented draws from multiple disciplines, integrating information in a single source. Topics addressed focus first on aspects of developmen t and normal biology of the vasculature, and then on angiogenesis and how it is involved in the pathophysiology and therapy of ischemic card iovascular disease. Vascular development, endothelial cell biology, th e vascular matrix, and growth factors are discussed. Up to date inform ation on current clinical trials, and practical advice concerning appl ication to cardiovascular therapeutic options, are also stressed.
