Description

Heart transplants often result in the development of an accelerated form of coronary arterial disease, recent studies of which are presented here in ten chapters by specialists in the US, UK, and Canada. Topics include: atherosclerosis as a response to injury; the immune response to endothelial cells; the role of hemostasis, anticoagulation, fibrinolysis and endothelial activation; nonimmune factors in the etiology of graft coronary arteriosclerosis; tissue remodeling and extracellular matrix proteins; findings from animal experiments on the pathogenesis of transplant arteriopathy; cytomegalovirus as a contributing factor; lipids and lipid lowering therapy; and immunosuppressive drugs. Rose is affiliated with the Imperial College School of Medicine in Harefield, Middlesex, UK. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)show more
