This book is the first to cover the growing area of research in growth factors and which devotes itself completely to the role of the growth factors in the cardiovascular system. It contains contributions by the leading experts in the field with an emphasis on the effects of growth factors on the cardiac myocyte, angiogenesis and atherosclerosis. Clinical and therapeutic implications of growth factors in cardiovascular disease are reviewed. Growth Factors and Cardiovascular System provides a comprehensive review together with new information that should be valuable to investigators and clinicians alike.
