The sum of a range of imflammatory events at the microvascular level leads to the expression of one of many inflammatory diseases. The microcirculation is a target for existing and potential anti-inflammatory therapies and it is anticipated that a greater knowledge of the immunopharmacology of the microcirculation will lead to novel therapeutic targets.
This volume covers examples of these imflammatory diseases, the in vitro and in vivo techniques used to study them, and the therapeutic agents used to combat them.
