Extracellular Matrix of the Liver addresses the basic science of the extracellular matrix and discusses
new strategies for the treatment of cirrhosis of the liver, with a primary focus on possible gene therapy
The chapters are divided into six sections as follows:
- Basic Science of Extracellular Matrix
- Cells Responsible for Extracellular Matrix Production
- Activation Mechanism of Hepatic Cells and Signal Transduction
- Basic Science for Extracellular Matrix Metabolism including Enzymes and their Inhibitors
- Matrix Mettaloproteinases and Tissue Inhibitors for Matrix Mettaloproteinases
- New Strategies for the treatment of Liver Cirrhosis
- Discusses the possibility of gene therapy for liver cirrhosis
- Includes information on new aspects of hepatic stellate cells
- Written by top experts in basic science and clinical hepatology
Hepatologists, molecular geneticists, gastroenterologists, oncologists, and hematologists
