This book covers the entire spectrum of cardiovascular genomics. It is organized into three parts: Genes and Polymorphisms in Cardiovascular Disease; Gene Transfer for Cardiovascular Disease; and Regenerative Tissues for the Diseased Cardiovascular System. Leading clinical researchers provide an updated account of the most recent molecular approaches utilized to understand the cardiovascular system in both health and disease. It provides and excellent resource for students, researchers and clinicians on the potential of developing novel strategies for the control of cardiovascular disease.
