Item description for Apoptosis in Health and Disease (New Horizons in Therpeutics : Smithkline Beecham Pharmaceuticals U.S. Research Symposia Series) by Robert R. Ruffolo Jr....
The impact of apoptosis, or programmed cell death, is thought to play a crucial role in the development and progression of disease. Whilst apoptosis remains extensively studied in the context of immunology, the focus of research has greatly expanded to investigate the key role it is now believed to play in hematopoiesis, angiogenesis, inflammation and organ remodelling. It is hoped that, with an increase in our understanding of the mechanisms controlling apoptosis, there will come the development of a new class of drugs which can pharmacologically manipulate apoptosis and thus provide a means to treat important diseases which currently pose problems to our society. Apoptosis in Health and Disease contains papers presented at the Eleventh SmithKline Beecham Pharmaceuticals United States Research Symposium. With contributions from leading researchers, Apoptosis in Health and Disease offers a comprehensive review of important developments and research in the field.
