Pathophysiology, Biochemistry, and Pharmacology of Platelets

  • J. Fraser Mustard
Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSA, volume 88)


This subject will be presented in relation to the study of platelets and vascular disease. Platelets are involved not only in thrombosis but also in atherosclerosis, which is a key factor in the development of arterial thrombosis. The study of arterial disease and thrombosis in living subjects has been difficult.
