Book description

Platelets have become an important research target for clinicians and basic scientists in a range of medical disciplines. This book reviews current science and applications in fields including thrombosis and hemostasis, signal transduction, and non-thrombotic conditions such as inflammation, allergy and tumor metastasis. It is a detailed, up-to-date, highly referenced text for clinical scientists and physicians, including recent developments in this rapidly expanding field. More than a scientific resource, this is also an authoritative reference and guide to the diagnosis and therapeutics of diseases involving platelets. Chapters are devised to provide a critical review of the most clinically relevant aspects of the subject. It will be an essential reference for biomedical scientists and clinicians in hematology, vascular medicine, cardiology, thrombosis and related disciplines.


‘… a comprehensive, detailed, up-to-date text for clinicians and basic scientists … A large group of leading experts, both basic scientists and clinical opinion leaders, have contributed to the book, giving a very international and interdisciplinary texture to this text. Comprehensive tables, schemes, some very nice color micrographs render the book easy to read and extensive and updated bibliographic citations may make the book a ready source of landmark references … any scientist interested in this subject will enjoy the educational journey through platelets this book offers; it is obligatory reading for anyone who wishes to embark on platelet studies.’
