Vascular Responses to Pathogens
by Felicity N.E. Gavins (Editor), Karen Y. Stokes (Editor)
Vascular Responses to Pathogens focuses on the growing research from leaders in the field for both the short and long-term impact of pathogens on the vasculature. It discusses various organisms, including bacteria, parasites, and viruses, and their role in key events leading to vascular disease.
Formatted to discuss the topic of the interaction of pathogens with the vascular rather than individual diseases described separately, this reference demonstrates that common mechanisms are at play in many different diseases because they have a similar context, their vasculature.
This all-inclusive reference book is a must-have tool for researchers and practicing clinicians in the areas of vascular biology, microvasculature, cardiology, and infectious disease.
- Covers a wide spectrum of organisms and provides analysis of pathogens and current therapeutic strategies in the context of their vasculature
- Provides detailed perspectives on key components contributing to vascular pathogens from leaders in the field
- Interfaces between both vascular biology and microbiology by encompassing information on how pathogens affect both macro and microvasculature
- Includes coverage of the clinical aspects of sepsis and current therapeutic strategies and anti-sepsis drugs
