Lung Injury: Mechanisms, Pathophysiology, and Therapy

Robert H. Notter (University of Rochester, New York, USA), Jacob Finkelstein (University of Rochester, New York, USA), Bruce Holm (State University of New York at Buffalo, New York, USA)

Progressing from general scientific principles and concepts to in-depth topical discussions of current research and treatment methods, this comprehensive reference defines the cellular and molecular mechanisms contributing to inflammatory lung injury and repair. Extensive coverage is provided on key mediators and pathways important in acute and chronic pulmonary inflammation and lung injury, as well as the mechanistic pathophysiology of related diseases ranging from clinical acute lung injury (ALI) and the acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) to idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) and other subacute and chronic conditions. Additional chapters also address vascular dysfunction, surfactant dysfunction, reactive oxygen/nitrogen species, and cell and animal models of acute and chronic lung injury.
