Book Description

As the number of patients with thrombosis and thrombolysis increases, there is a critical need for clinicians to learn the latest scientific discoveries and treatment options. This timely Third Edition is a comprehensive text for cardiologists, hematologists, and pharmacologists in need of a resource on current agent development technology for treating cardiovascular and thromboembolic diseases.

New to the Third Edition:

  • a thorough examination of all the agents involved in treating thrombosis
  • chapters on biomarkers, testing, and pharmacogenomics
  • key topics, including new targets for antithrombotics, the development of novel classes of platelet inhibitors, new thrombolytic therapies, and evolving clinical uses of thrombolytics for ischemic stroke and venous thrombosis
  • the hemostatic and thrombotic pathways
