Angiogenesis and Cardiovascular Disease provides a comprehensive review of the basic scientific and clinical advances in the field of angiogenesis, and its role in the human cardiovascular system. The material presented draws from multiple disciplines, integrating information in a single source. Topics addressed focus first on aspects of development and normal biology of the vasculature, and then on angiogenesis and how it is involved in the pathophysiology and therapy of ischemic cardiovascular disease. Vascular development, endothelial cell biology, the vascular matrix, and growth factors are discussed. Up to date information on current clinical trials, and practical advice concerning application to cardiovascular therapeutic options, are also stressed.
