Airways Smooth Muscle: Structure, Innervation and Neurotransmission (Progress in Mathematics)

Airways Smooth Muscle: Structure, Innervation and Neurotransmission (Progress in Mathematics) Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Building on the existing titles in the Airways Smooth Muscle sub-series, the sixth volume explores physiological and pharmacological processes in the lung in vivo. The various animal models available for studying the bronchospasm and inflammation associated with human asthma are thoroughly reviewed by internationally recognised scientists. Specific chapters focus on the problems of administering drugs to animal airways, the mechanics of assessing lung function in the models, and describe in detail the species used, from rodents to primates. The use of genetically altered animals, an area of particular interest to molecular biologists, is also considered in depth. This up-to-date and extensively referenced work will prove invaluable to pharmacologists, physiologists and other biological scientists at all levels in academia and in the pharmaceutical industry.
