Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'The editors have succeeded in producing a volume of work which provides many answers to questions, asked and unasked, about a critically important field of biologic research. It should be in the library of any scientist with an interest in human physiology; it would be useful to many other researchers as well.'
Chemtracts - Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, 12:10 (1999)
Twenty-one papers from the April 1996 Symposium<-->the first to deal specifically with serine protease inhibitors. The volume is dedicated to the memory of Stuart Stone (1951-1996), whose work at the Friedrich-Miescher Institut in Basel, the University of Cambridge and Monash University in Melbourne helped establish the field. Contributors cover coagulation, neurobiology and cancer, fibrinolysis, development and reproduction, inflammation, and noninhibitor serpins. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
