  • Innovative: the first book to provide concise information on the molecular pathophysiology of disease
  • Comprehensive: includes more than 1,200 entries covering 23 topic fields, plus some 500 multi-colored figures
  • Superbly structured: entries include both disease types and pathophysiological entities
  • Accessible and reader-friendly: A-Z format, clear, concise language and uniform essay structure provide easy access for both experts and newcomers
  • Authoritative: More than 1,000 expert contributors provide accurate and up-to-the-minute information

This comprehensive encyclopedia supplies the reader with concise information on the molecular pathophysiology of disease. Determining and understanding the molecular mechanisms of disease is one of the key goals of modern medical research. The studies of medical genetics, microbiology, immunology, structural biology, molecular cell biology, neuroscience and developmental biology have been brought to bear on the full range of human diseases. Thus, entries here include defined diseases (such as Parkinson’s disease) as well as pathophysiological entities (such as tremor).

The 1,200 essays are brilliantly structured to allow rapid retrieval of the desired information. For more detailed reading, each entry is followed by up to five references. Individual entries are written by leading experts in the respective area of research to ensure state-of-the-art descriptions of the mechanisms involved.

It is an invaluable companion for clinicians and scientists in all medical disciplines. Useful for individuals working in related professions or for those simply interested in the mechanisms leading to disease, the Encyclopedia of Molecular Mechanisms of Disease is readil
