About this book


Caroline Hébert and a panel of key experimentalists and clinical investigators comprehensively review the state-of-the-art in the chemokine field, ranging from the effects of chemokines and their receptors in retroviral infections, to their role in inflammation, angiogenesis/angiostasis, and tumor cell biology. The book examines in detail fifteen recently identified chemokines and elucidates the role of chemokine function in vivo from animal experiments. Animal models are also used to explore how chemokines operate in a variety of chronic and acute inflammatory diseases and in noninflammatory processes. A detailed review of the emerging role of chemokines in viral biology is also presented, with emphasis on HIV biology and novel therapeutic possibilities. Chemokines in Disease: Biology and Clinical Research summarizes the rapidly expanding knowledge of a dazzling array of chemokines and provides fresh insights into the development of powerful new drugs for treating a wide spectrum of diseases.
