Description

Platelets, Second Edition is the definitive current source of state-of-the-art knowledge about platelets and covers the entire field of platelet biology, pathophysiology, and clinical medicine. Recently there has been a rapid expansion of knowledge in both basic biology and the clinical approach to platelet-related diseases including thrombosis and hemorrhage. Novel platelet function tests, drugs, blood bank storage methods, and gene therapies have been incorporated into patient care or are in development. This book draws all this information into a single, comprehensive and authoritative resource.

Key Features

  • First edition won Best Book in Medical Science Award from the Association of American Publishers
  • Contains fourteen new chapters on topics such as platelet genomics and proteomics, inhibition of platelet function by the endothelium, clinical tests of platelet function, real time in vivo imaging of platelets, and inherited thrombocytopenias
  • A comprehensive full color reference comprising over 70 chapters, 1400 pages, and 16,000 references

Readership

Hematologists, cardiologists, blood bankers, stroke physicians, pathologists, researchers in thrombosis and hemostasis, and students and fellows working in these fields

Reviews

"This is the second edition of a comprehensive book on everything you could ever possibly want to know about platelets...The purpose is to provide a comprehensive, definitive, and authoritative book on platelets. These are worthy objectives, well met in this updated edition...This book would interest anyone wanting to learn about platelets: physicians at all stages of training or practice, clinical laboratory scientists at any stage of training or practice, and basic scientists interested in learning about clinical aspects of platelets...This is the book I'll use whenever I have to answer any type of platelet question. If you field platelet questions, you should get this book, too." --Valerie L. Ng, PhD, MD, Alameda County Medical Center/Highland Hospital, FOR DOODY'S (4 Stars)

"...the book is a clearly written, concise, and comprehensive discussion of platelets and their disorders that will be useful to anyone whose professional activity involves these important little cells." --Michael J. Domanski, MD, National Heart Lung and Blood Institute, in JAMA

"This is a fantastic resource for anyone who treats patients with platelets disorders or is engaged in platelet or megakaryocyte-based research."  --BRITISH JOURNAL OF HAEMATOLOGY
