Book Description

Healthcare has been transformed from a “this is what you do” concept to a profession that has a significant educational and scientific basis with an ethos of evidence-based material. The demand for comprehensive and focused evidenced-based text and scientific literature covering single areas of nursing and healthcare science or treatment has also increased. This then is the rational for the present series. The volume on Arthritis covers, rheumatoid arthritis, cytokines, leukocyte immunoglobulin-like receptors, alleles, cardiovascular risk, disease outcomes, treatment protocols, and drugs for arthritis.
