Provides a thorough overview of current knowledge of stress proteins in both normal and disease physiology and evaluates the potential for developing novel diagnostic, prophylactic, and therapeutic approaches to control human disease based on the latest stress-protein research.



…a comprehensive overview.

…the editors have achieved a healthy balance between historical background, factual knowledge and informed conjecture.

"-Annals of the Rheumatic Diseases

"…an excellent resource.

"-Trends in Endocrinology and Metabolism

"…a valuable and necessary source of information for readers working in the various fields of medicine.
