This three-volume compendium is the most comprehensive work, to date, on endothelium cells and their important role in the functions of the internal framework. The endothelial cell is broken down into its different properties, taking into consideration its part in metabolic, hemostatic, and immunological processes, as well as their interac-tion with each other and different cell types. Numerous illustrations featured throughout help clarify the importance of endothelium in maintaining the internal status quo. These volumes are indispens-able to researchers, physicians, and others interested in endothe-lium, vascular biology, and circulatory research.

  • Presents a cell biological approach.

  • Provides up-to-the-minute techniques on in vivo and in vitro stud-ies.

  • Considers interactions of endothelial cells with each other.

  • Discusses the interaction with components of coagulation, fibri-nolytic, and complement systems.
