Table of Contents

Have Blood Platelets Immunological Functions? The Analysis of Ligand-Receptor Interactions in Platelet Activation. The Analysis of Lipid Mediators from Platelets. Platelet Cytokines and Cellular Network in Allergy. The Generation of Free Radicals By Blood Platelets. The Role of Human Platelet Membrane Receptors in Inflammation. Animal Models for Investigating Allergic and Inflammatory Functions of Platelets. Platelets in Parasitic Diseases. Platelets in Bacterial Infections. Platelets in Viral Infections. Platelets in Immune Disorders. Platelets and Tumour Cell Interactions.


Platelets have long been the subject of much investigation in the areas of vascular physiology, biochemistry, immunology and physiopathology. Their ability to react to environmental stimuli, to modify their shape and metabolism despite being anuclear, has fascinated scientists. This volume looks specifically at the involvement of blood platelets outside their 'classical' field of application, in the physiopathological mechanics of allergy and inflammation. The coverage includes the role of platelets in bacterial, parasitic and viral diseases and in tumour cell interactions.


AUDIENCE: Pharmacologists in academia and industry, as well as researchers in allergy and inflammatory conditions, and microbiologists.
