About this book

Much progress has been made in elucidating the mechanisms regulating the induction and progression of inflammatory diseases. More recently, however, it has become apparent that the manipulation of mechanisms governing the resolution of inflammation is an important way to develop novel strategies for the therapy of such diseases. This book provides an up-to-date and comprehensive view on the resolution of inflammation and on new developments in this area (e.g. pro-resolution mediators, apoptosis, macrophage clearance of apoptotic cells, possible novel drug developments). The chapters are written by leading scientists in the field.

This topical volume is of interest to medical and scientific researchers in academia and industry working on inflammatory and cardiovascular diseases such as arthritis, asthma, bronchitis, atherosclerosis, and more.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“The chapters have been written … in a clear but concise manner, with historical contexts provided to interest readers. … aimed at medical practitioners and scientists; it is relevant to cell biologists, pharmacologists and physiologists … . I will be ordering several copies for our library as I consider this to be an exciting new topic which will provide an important foundation for future anti-inflammatory drug therapies … and which is of interest to both newcomers and experts in the field.” (Helen Griffiths, Inflammation Research, Vol. 59, 2010)
