Lieferbar innert 2 Wochen
BeschreibungWritten by nearly 60 of the world's leading investigators in this rapidly expanding field, this state-of-the-art reference furnishes detailed presentations on the basic science and clinical aspects of cilia, mucus, and mucociliary interactions. Providing stimulating coverage of the latest information in a single source, Cilia, Mucus, and Mucociliary Interactions 7discusses the genetic determinants of mucociliary system structure and function 7explains ciliary wave activity in cell-cell communication 7elucidates many of the key physiological processes in ciliary regulation 7reveals possible means of treating irregularities in mucus secretion and clearance 7improves understanding of clinical syndromes, including abnormalities pertaining to nasal sinuses, upper and lower airways, and the systemic role of cilia 7approaches the clinical management of mucociliary dysfunction logically using currently available diagnostic and therapeutic techniques 7and much more! Containing bibliographic citations, tables, equations, drawings, and photographs, this exhaustive guide is essential reading for physiologists, pulmonologists, otolaryngologists, pediatricians, microbiologists, basic scientists, and graduate and medical school students in these disciplines.
