Translational Inflammation links laboratory and clinical data within primary and secondary care to clinical research data and offers a holistic and innovative approach to chronic inflammation and ageing. Understanding the role of inflammation as a part of clinical disease states is becoming a valuable tool in both direct treatment and the development of therapeutics. Translational Inflammation, the 4th volume in the Perspectives in Translational Cell Biology series, offers content for professors, students and researchers across basic and translational biology.
- Emphasizes the role of inflammation in disease and therapeutic approaches
- Integrates broad concepts relating inflammation to other fields
- Offers a bridge to review literature and primary research on the inflammatory response towards medical application
