About this book


The past few years have seen rapid progress in apoptosis research. This volume deals with many of the recent advances made in uncovering the molecular and cellular basis of apoptosis and elaborates on how this accumulating knowledge is helping us to understand the significance of apoptosis in pathogenesis of diseases arising from inappropriate cell death. Further, mechanistic aspects of cell death and role of apoptosis in disease is covered.
The articles published in this volume are written by leading experts in the field and should be a vital resource for researchers in biomedicine and cancer research.
