  • About this book

  • Focuses on physiology of Lung Development
  • Written by key international leaders in the field
  • Comprehensive review of the complex series of cellular and molecular interactions required for lung development
Knowledge about the mechanisms of lung development has been growing rapidly, especially with regard to cellular and molecular aspects of growth and differentiation. This authoritative international volume reviews key aspects of lung development in health and disease by providing a comprehensive review of the complex series of cellular and molecular interactions required for lung development. It covers such topics as pulmonary hypoplasia, effects of malnutrition, and pulmaonary angiogenesis.
