Platelets in Thrombotic and Non-Thrombotic Disorders

Pathophysiology, Pharmacology and Therapeutics

by Paolo Gresele, Clive P. Page, Valentin Fuster, Jos Vermylen

Platelets have become an important research target for clinicians and basic scientists in a range of medical disciplines. This book reviews current science and applications in fields including thrombosis and hemostasis, signal transduction, and non-thrombotic conditions such as inflammation, allergy and tumor metastasis. It is a detailed, up-to-date, highly referenced text for clinical scientists and physicians, including recent developments in this rapidly expanding field. More than a scientific resource, this is also an authoritative reference and guide to the diagnosis and therapeutics of diseases involving platelets. Chapters are devised to provide a critical review of the most clinically relevant aspects of the subject. It will be an essential reference for biomedical scientists and clinicians in hematology, vascular medicine, cardiology, thrombosis and related disciplines.
