Targeting the key active elements in the mechanism and application of apoptosis and its therapeutic implications, Apoptosis: Modern Insights into Disease from Molecules to Man covers apoptosis from A to Z. Comprehensive in scope, it explores a wide range of topics including various cancers, asthma, and multiple sclerosis as well as alcohol induced liver disease, chronic back pain, and cardiovascular health. With 40 chapters written by highly respected authorities, this single source reference provides researchers and scientists with the foundation they need.


The strengths of this book lie in its encyclopedic coverage of the topic material, as well as in its currency: the considerable majority of references cited are from the past ten years. The rapid evolution of this field is invariably a downside to a static compendium of knowledge such as Apoptosis, but at the moment, it will serve as an excellent resource for anyone who requires a thorough grounding in the biology and physiology of apoptosis.

—Robert Korneluk, The Quarterly Review of Biology, Volume 87, 2012
