About the Authors
  • This updated and expanded new edition takes full account of recent developments and conveys the basic science underlying a wide range of clinical conditions including atherosclerosis, hypertension, diabetes, and pregnancy. As with the first edition, the publication provides an introductory account of vascular biology before leading on to explain mechanisms involved in disease processes. The breadth and range of subjects covered in this new edition do full justice to this increasingly important area of clinical research and medicine. This multidisciplinary approach will suit the needs of all those seeking to refresh their knowledge with the very latest advances from basic science through to clinical practice.

    • Fully expanded and updated with the very latest developments in the field
    • Uses a multidisciplinary approach to the subject
    • Vascular biology is at the forefront of much medical research, with links to many diseases
