This comprehensive reference emphasizes the dynamic events that occur in the maintenance and repair of blood vessels in health and abnormalities that may result from dysregulation of inflammatory and immune responses in disease. The editors have assembled authors and topics that bring new concepts about cell and molecular biology to the clinician to provide a better understanding of pathogenesis, the diagnostic process, and treatment. Recent insights into pathogenesis have dramatically influenced development of new therapies that target disease pathways.
