Reviews

"An excellent overview....We convey [to] our readers and subscribers to buy absolutely this book which goes farther than any other previous one, to show that we have to consider now the endothelium as a full partner of the general physiology and of the pathology of humans and animals."
Cellular and Molecular Biology, June 1998
