Description

Authoritative and insightful, this important text provides an update on the latest advances in the areas of biomedical research that are at the interface of science and clinical medicine, where new discoveries in genetics, molecular and cell biology are not only enhancing our understanding of the etiology and progression of disease but are finding application in the development of new drugs or the implementation of new kinds of therapy. Reviewing current knowledge of the mechanisms contributing to hypertension, an internationally renowned team of contributors highlights developments across a broad range of disciplines and provides an overview of the advances in biomedical research that have a direct bearing on current clinical studies. A key work in its field, this text will have broad appeal to clinical cardiologists, vascular medicine specialists, and internists, as well as members of the cardiovascular research community and pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries.
