Cardiovascular Hormone Systems: From Molecular Mechanisms to Novel Therapeutics (3527319204) cover image
Edited by a renowned scientist in the field with more than 200 high profile scientific publications to his name, this is the first book to provide a comprehensive overview of all cardiovascular hormone systems. Clearly structured, the text covers steroid and peptide hormones, amines, and arachidonic acid metabolites, as well as such others as nucleotides, nitric oxide, and acetylcholine. An essential reference for researchers working on the cardiovascular system and related diseases.
