A valuable study of the science behind the medicine, Muscle:
Fundamental Biology and Mechanisms of Disease brings together key
leaders in muscle biology. These experts provide state-of-the-art
insights into the three forms of muscle--cardiac, skeletal, and
smooth--from molecular anatomy, basic physiology, disease
mechanisms, and targets of therapy. Commonalities and contrasts
among these three tissue types are highlighted. This book focuses
primarily on the biology of the myocyte.
Individuals active in muscle investigation--as well as those new
to the field--will find this work useful, as will students of
muscle biology. In the case of hte former, many wish to grasp
issues at the margins of their own expertise (e.g. clinical matters
at one end; molecular matters at the other), adn this book is
designed to assist them. Students, postdoctoral fellows, course
directors and other faculty will find this book of interest. Beyond
this, many clinicians in training (e.g. cardiology fellows) will
The only resource to focus on science before the clinical work and
therapeuticsTiered approach to subject: discussion first of normal
muscle function through pathological/disease state changes, and
ending each section with therapeutic interventionsCoverage of
topics ranging from basic physiology to newly discovered molecular
mechanisms of muscle diseases for all three muscle types: cardiac,
skeletal, and smooth
