Vulnerable plaque development is the result of a complex series of molecular and cellular events involving inflammation, apoptosis, rupture, and thrombosis. A detailed understanding of the mechanisms underlying the development of high-risk plaques, along with the ability to visualize and diagnose these vulnerable lesions, will lead to the effective management of acute coronary syndromes. High-Risk Atherosclerotic Plaques: Mechanisms, Imaging, Models, and Therapy brings together timely, in-depth reviews by renowned international cardiologists and scientists. Chapters cover the definition, structure, and cellular and molecular mechanisms of high risk plaque development, as well as animal models of vulnerable plaque, plaque imaging, and current and future therapies. Medical experts discuss intravascular ultrasound, optimal coherence tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, and coronary thermography. The final chapter reviews both current and future local and systematic strategies for the therapeutic management of vulnerable plaque. Exploring all aspects of this primary cause of acute coronary syndromes, this informative book updates our knowledge on the detection and treatment of vulnerable plaques. It is a valuable resource that can greatly advance the progress in treatment and prevention.

Antioxidants in Disease Mechanisms and Therapy presents molecular actions of natural and synthetic antioxidants and emphasizes the potential role in disease mechanisms and therapeutic strategies. The modulationof gene expression by the induction of antioxidant enzymes is a novel role beyond the direct antioxidant action. The volume explores the current state of knowledge on oxidants and antioxidants in disease processes, including arteriosclerosis, adult respiratory distress syndrome, cystic fibrosis, Down's syndrome, inflammation, cataract, age-related macular degeneration, afflications of the nervous system, AIDS, liver diseases, diabetes, skin diseases, and cancer. Key Features * Contains cutting-edge information on focused topics written by expert scientists * Provides the first in-depth treatment of novel compounds, such as melatonin and polyamines * Attempts molecular pathophysiology which links basic science and the clinic * Presents critical assessment of controversial topics

Atherosclerosis is the most common cardiovascular disorder in western societies and is rapidly becoming similarly prevalent in the underdeveloped world. Written by notable authorities and providing text rich in illustrative figures, Molecular Mechanisms in Atherosclerosis addresses the fundamental mechanisms underlying atherothrombosis and delineates current views of the molecular and cellular basis of the process. The editor approaches the issue from a mechanistic perspective, and does so in the context of contemporary knowledge of molecular and cellular pathobiology. The book provides an epidemiological overview of atherosclerotic vascular disease, followed by a review of the genetics and genetic epidemiology. It focuses on the four fundamental mechanisms common to all risk factors for atherosclerosis: inflammation, oxidative stress, thrombosis, and endothelial dysfunction and the mechanisms under lying for common risk factors for atherogenesis: dyslipidaemias, diabetes mellitus, hypertension, and smoking. The book then discusses the recently proposed risk factors hyperhomocysteinemia and infection and rational molecular therapies to prevent and combat established atherothrombotic disease. Taken together, these chapters offer a broad review of the molecular and cellular mechanisms of atherothrombogenesis. The topics covered and the order of presentation were carefully chosen to clarify the complexity of the disease process. Armed with the information contained in this text, you can confidently explore cutting-edge research with insight and foresight regarding their implications for prevention and treatment.

Anticancer Treatments and Cardiotoxicity: Mechanisms, Diagnostic and Therapeutic Interventions presents cutting edge research on the adverse cardiac effects of both radiotherapy and chemotherapy, brought together by leaders in the field. Cancer treatment-related cardiotoxicity is the leading cause of treatment-associated mortality in cancer survivors and is one of the most common post-treatment issues among survivors of adult cancer. Early detection of the patients prone to developing cardiotoxicity, taking in to account the type of treatment, history and other risk factors, is essential in the fight to decrease cardiotoxic mortality. This illustrated reference describes the most effective diagnostic and imaging tools to evaluate and predict the development of cardiac dysfunction for those patients undergoing cancer treatment. In addition, new guidelines on imaging for the screening and monitoring of these patients are also presented. Anticancer Treatments and Cardiotoxicity is an essential reference for those involved in the research and treatment of cardiovascular toxicity. Provides algorithms essential for the use of imaging, and biomarkers for the screening and monitoring of patients Written by world-leading experts in the field of cardiotoxicity Includes high-quality images, case studies, and test questions Describes the most effective diagnostic and imaging tools to evaluate and predict the development of cardiac dysfunction for those patients undergoing cancer treatment
