About this book


Handbook of Platelet Physiology and Pharmacology represents the first comprehensive work to review blood platelet biochemistry, physiology, pharmacology and function. This edited volume provides up-to-date information on how platelets function, the biochemical mechanisms that modulate their physiology and function, as well as the pharmacology of platelet inhibitory drugs. The book presents an excellent overview of biochemistry, receptor biology, signaling mechanisms, calcium homeostasis, molecular pathology, and comparative physiology of platelets, as well as the pharmacology of antiplatelet drugs and clinical trials.
Handbook of Platelet Physiology and Pharmacology will prove a useful reference for hematologists, cell biologists, biochemists, pathologists, and other researchers in the areas of cell biology, pathobiology, atherosclerosis, thrombosis, and biomedical engineering.
