Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: Richard K. Burt, MD (Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine)
Description: This book is a symposium summary that covers several aspects of cytokines, including the fundamental molecular biology and single transduction pathways followed by the clinical role of cytokines in medicine.
Purpose: It is intended to summarize recent advances in cytokines.
Audience: It has broad application to students, residents, practitioners, and basic scientists.
Features: It discusses the basic biology of cytokines and single transduction pathways in the clinical applications of growth factors. Many of the chapters are well written and up-to-date. The book lacks an in-depth development of single transduction pathways in cytokine receptors, but it does provide a good overview of these areas before moving into clinical applications.
Assessment: This is an excellent book offering tantalizing information in single transduction pathways and cytokine receptors, which moves into new and exciting areas of clinical applications.
