Clinical Applications Targeting Periostin

  • Akira KudoEmail author
Part of the Advances in Experimental Medicine and Biology book series (AEMB, volume 1132)


Since periostin is expressed and functioned in incredible diseases, clinical applications have been initiated to directly target periostin for inhibition or activation, or periostin expression is utilized to indicate the disease state or a marker for curing diseases, which will provide novel methods in clinical applications.
