Perspectives on Lung Endothelial Barrier Function. Advances in Molecular and Cell Biology Volume 35

  • ID: 1769305
  • Book
  • December 2004
  • Elsevier Science and Technology

This readable, comprehensive text covers endothelial biology from the fundamentals of structure and lung fluid balance physiology to state-of-the-art descriptions of the molecular mechanisms involved in the development of lung failure. The material and illustrations, provided by outstanding experts in their individual areas of research and clinical concentration, is artfully woven together to provide the reader with an integrated, in-depth, and up-to-date knowledge of endothelial function, vascular integrity, pulmonary function, and pathophysiology in respiratory failure.
