Eosinophils: Structure, Biological Properties and Role in Disease $195.00
Editors: Garry M. Walsh (Division of Applied Medicine, School of Medicine & Dentistry, Institute of Medical Sciences University of Aberdeen, Foresterhill, Aberdeen U.K.)
Book Description:
The eosinophil is an enigmatic cell with a continuing ability to fascinate. In this book, experts in the field of eosinophil biology comprehensively update our knowledge on the human eosinophil in health and disease. Topics discussed include a synopsis of eosinophil characteristics, properties and role in disease. Important information on how eosinophils release their potent and toxic granule proteins will be covered and how these basic proteins give rise to pathologies including issues such as the function of the nerves.
