Overview

This updated edition is a comprehensive treatise that spans the complete range of basic biochemistry of bone and cartilage components to the clinical evaluation of disease markers in bone and joint disorders. With contributions from over 75 international experts, this latest edition is indispensable reading for those involved in skeletal research as well as for rheumatologists, endocrinologists, clinical biochemists, and other clinical disciplines participating in the management of patients with bone and cartilage diseases.

*Part I provides an up-to-date account of current knowledge of the structure, biosynthesis and molecular biology of the major tissue components
*Part II covers the organizational structure and cellular metabolism of bone and cartilage
*Part III deals with the utility of components specific to bone and cartilage as biomarkers of health and disease

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Praise for the First Edition:
"..The approach taken in this book--to consider the structural, functional, metabolic, and pathologic aspects of bone and cartilage in parallel--is a welcome departure and provides the reader with an unusual and interesting range of topics...Scientists and physicians who wish to cross the devide between bone and cartilage will find this book of considerable interest and value..."
Juliet E. Compston, University of Cambridge, UK in THE NEW ENGLAND JOURNAL OF MEDICINE
