Book Description

This authoritative volume contains 179 chapters by international experts on recent developments in our understanding of amyloid proteins, protein folding disorders, and new and proposed clinical trials in amyloidosis. Topics include detection and characterization techniques; biological functions; genetics; disorders, diagnosis, and treatments, including organ transplants and drug therapies; results from extensive clinical studies; and epidemiology. This is a valuable resource for clinicians who care for patients with systemic and localized forms of amyloidosis, and for researchers in biochemistry, neurobiology, and cell biology.
