Description

volume of conference proceedings reviews the general pathophysiological significance of the isoforms of cyclooxygenase, and the likely value of selective COX-2 inhibitors in the treatment of rheumatoid conditions. Also covered is the possible use of antibodies against cytokines and cell adhesion receptors in the treatment of inflammatory conditions.
