Immunopharmacology of Platelets (Handbook of Immunopharmacology)
Although anucleated, blood platelets are extraordinarily
efficient cells and still the subject of fruitful investigations
in haematology, in vascular physiology, in biochemistry,
and more recently in immunology and in physiopathology
where their metabolism has been implicated
as a source of potential effector compounds. It... Platelet Function: Assessment, Diagnosis, and Treatment (Contemporary Cardiology)
A cutting-edge review of the latest findings on the complexities of platelet function and the various means of inhibiting platelet clot formation. The authors delineate an up-to-date picture of platelet biology and describe methods for assessing platelet function, including the commonly used platelet aggregation, thromboxane production,...
