Bronchial Vascular Remodeling in Asthma and COPD

Edited By Aili Lazaar Copyright 2006

    Responding to the growth of research in the field over the past decade, this book brings together leading investigators with expertise in pulmonology, pathology, and developmental biology to clarify the mechanisms that regulate the development of bronchial vascular remodeling in asthma and COPD, as well as explore the pathophysiological processes t
