Bridging the gap between the laboratory and the bedside, this timely volume illuminates the connection between endothelial dysfunction and vascular disease. This comprehensive survey of atherosclerotic disease begins with biology - incorporating the latest breakthroughs in the field - then elucidates risk factors and diagnostic tools and markers. A major section on endothelium-directed prevention and therapy shows you how to apply cutting-edge research to clinical care. Under the careful editorial guidance of Drs. Libby and De Caterina, the highly-regarded contributors address: endothelial activation and the initiation of atherosclerosis; mechanisms of plaque progression and complications; the role of LDL in the origin and progression of atherosclerosis; advanced glycation endproducts and the accelerated atherosclerosis in diabetes; oxidative stress and vascular disease; soluble adhesion molecules as markers of ascular disease; hormone-replacement therapy and cardiovascular risk; and, anti-oxidants and endothelial protection and more. The first book dedicated to the central role of endothelial dysfunction in vascular disease, this concise volume gathers all the latest information on the subject into one convenient and cohesive text. Make sure your patients are benefiting from current knowledge by keeping a copy of "Enothelial Dysfunctions in Vascular Disease" close at hand for frequent consultation.
