Reviews

From the reviews: “This is an up-to-date review of the current understanding of inflammation, the mechanisms by which it affects disease, and the role of anti-inflammatory medications pertaining to COX-2 and its inhibition. … Physicians and researchers with a particular interest in the current research and understanding of inflammation and COX-2 inhibition are the intended readers. … It is detailed, but written with great clarity and exhaustive references. It will be a great addition to any medical library.” (Vladimir N. Despotovic, Doody’s Review Service, February, 2010)
