Cellular Adhesion: Molecular Definition to Therapeutic Potential

by

Cellular Adhesion: Molecular Definition to Therapeutic Potential Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The books in this acclaimed series provide integrated, critical surveys of topics of current interest to the pharmaceutical industry. Cellular Adhesion: Molecular Definition to Therapeutic Potential covers the molecular definition of adhesion molecule structure and function, the biological consequences of cellular adhesion, and the therapeutic potential of targeting adhesion molecules.

Book News Annotation:

Describes recent advances in the understanding of some processes related to the adhesion of a cell to a surface that may open opportunities for developing new therapeutics for a variety of diseases. Covers the molecules involved in the processes, the biological consequences of several adhesive interactions, and some initial therapeutic approaches to antagonizing adhesion. The 16 papers were presented at a symposium in Philadelphia in October 1992.
