This state-of-the-art reference outlines current knowledge of the structure, transcriptional regulation, and binding characteristics of vascular and leukocyte adhesion molecules and their ligands delineating the nature of adhesion molecule interactions in lung morphogenesis and repair, tumor metastasis, and experimental models of inflammatory lung injury.



…an extraordinary amount of information…

This is a superb addition to the Lenfant series written by distinguished scientists at the forefront of the field and remarkable in the extent of up-to-date information which is presented…Although the outsider can get a glimpse of the future, this monograph is mainly designed for scientists actively working in this rapidly moving field, and it is a must for them.
