Cell Injury Mechanisms Response Repair / Edition 1

When cells are damaged, as often occurs during trauma and metabolicstress, a highly evolved cell healing process follows that wasdesigned to enhance cell survival or remove irreparably injuredcells. Following injury, cells attempt to seal breaks in theirmembranes, chaperone removal or refolding of altered proteins,repair damaged DNA, or if necessary commit to programmed celldeath.

When cell injury is too extensive to permit reparativeresponses, acute cellular necrosis or apoptosis can result.Understanding injury at the subcellular organelle and molecularlevels is essential for development of new therapeutic strategiesand for optimal management of injured victims.

In this volume, various modes of injury that can occur aredescribed, as well as the basic molecular healing responses andpathways of metabolic survival or death. The approach taken here isto look at these processes at the cellular and subcellular levels,rather than at the tissue level, and this volume will be a valuableresource to anyone interested in wound healing, biological stressresponses, molecular chaperones, radiobiology, biomechanics, andbiomedical engineering, as well as trauma and critical caremedicine.
