About this book


Interest in nitric oxide biology has greatly intensified over the past decade in concert with our increasing appreciation of its many roles in the cardiovascular systems. In Nitric Oxide and the Cardiovascular System, world leaders in the field comprehensively review the chemistry, biochemistry, molecular biology, physiology, and pathophysiology of nitric oxide in cardiovascular health and disease. These experts particularly illuminate nitric oxide biology, its cardiovascular pathophysiology, and its role in cardiovascular therapeutics. Topics also included are the development of nitric oxide donors for the treatment of myocardial ischemia and thrombosis, of gene therapeutic restoration of endothelial function in atherosclerosis, and the application of nitric oxide biology to investigative arenas in cardiovascular medicine.
With its balanced presentation of basic and clinically relevant information, Nitric Oxide and the Cardiovascular System provides a comprehensive, authoritative guide for all those cardiovascular biologists, cardiologists, and cardiovascular surgeons engaged in today's clinical or experimental research.
