About this book

Arthritis Research: Methods and Protocols is a compendium of data pertinent to the methods and protocols that have contributed to recent advances in molecular medicine in general, but to the molecular basis of rheumatic disease in particular. These volumes details novel technologies, some of which are still evolving and whose impacts are yet to be determined. Leaders in the field contribute to cover such exciting and cutting edge topics as imaging and immunohistochemistry, analysis of cartilage and bone catabolism, immunobiology, and cell trafficking.

In Volume 1, authors discuss synovial joint morphology, histopathology, and immunohistochemistry, cartilage matrix and bone biology, and cell trafficking, migration and invasion. Volume 2 is broken up into sections that cover immunobiology and T cells, animal models of arthritis, and applications of new technologies, such as Differential Display Reverse Transcription-Polymerase Chain Reaction (DDRT-PCR), to define novel therapeutic targets. Both volumes combine to produce a concise set of protocols condensing decades of experience and expertise.

Arthritis Research: Methods and Protocols will be a valuable tool for basic research investigators, clinician scientists, pathologists, immunologists, and biochemists looking to stay current in their fields.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"This volume excels in the presentation of basic, fundamental techniques requisite in the anaylsis of arthritic disease.  Especially well done are the immunobiology and animal model sections." -Doody's Book Review, Weighted Numerical Score:96 - 4 Stars

"This multiauthored … compendium of arthritis research methods and protocols provides pertinent practical information for the bench researcher as well as for the interested clinician. … It is a worthwhile reference to have in the research laboratory … . I enthusiastically recommend … and believe this publication would have broad appeal to the rheumatologic community and to those in related specialties. … I congratulate the authors on developing an excellent compendium of arthritis research … ." (Robert J. Quinet, JAMA, April, 2008)
