About this book


In Molecular and Cellular Basis of Inflammation, Charles N. Serhan and Peter A. Ward bring together a collection of cutting-edge reviews of the molecular and cellular bases of inflammatory processes. Their authoritative new book reviews the role of protein and lipid mediators in inflammation, cellular processes of importance in the initiation and determination of inflammation, signal transduction events of interest in the development of potential new therapeutic targets, and drug design issues in inflammation therapeutics. In addition, several chapters summarize state-of-the-art findings in disease processes where inflammation plays a critical role.
Reflecting the work of leading researchers in molecular biology, biochemistry, pharmacology, immunology, and pathobiology, Molecular and Cellular Basis of Inflammation offers a powerful new synthesis of our understanding of inflammatory processes and diseases today, as well as an insightful contribution to the search for new antiinflammatory agents.
