Molecular Defects in Cardiovascular Disease provides an in-depth discussion of the molecular mechanisms underlying the genesis of cardiovascular defects and the implications this has on current and emerging targeted therapeutics.  Divided into three sections, this book covers the scientific foundations of our present understanding as well as the array of clinical manifestations and their treatment.  The first section... more...

Whenever the heart is challenged with an increased work load for a prolonged period, it responds by increasing its muscle mass--a phenomenon known as cardiac hypertrophy. Although cardiac hypertrophy is commonly seen under physiological conditions such as development and exercise, a wide variety of pathological situa­ tions such as hypertension (pressure overload), valvular defects (volume overload), myocardial infarction (muscle loss), and... more...

Rapid advances in molecular medicine have led to pronounced new developments in experimental and clinical cardiology.  In the embrace of modern molecular biology and bridging the gap between the clinical and the genomic, cardiovascular medicine has seen major strides in the understanding of the molecular mechanisms that drive disease progression.  The ability to rapidly identify candidate human genes for cardiovascular diseases lends itself to the... more...
