Description

Extracellular Matrix of the Liver addresses the basic science of the extracellular matrix and discusses
new strategies for the treatment of cirrhosis of the liver, with a primary focus on possible gene therapy
approaches.

The chapters are divided into six sections as follows:

* Basic Science of Extracellular Matrix
* Cells Responsible for Extracellular Matrix Production
* Activation Mechanism of Hepatic Cells and Signal Transduction
* Basic Science for Extracellular Matrix Metabolism including Enzymes and their Inhibitors
* Matrix Mettaloproteinases and Tissue Inhibitors for Matrix Mettaloproteinases
* New Strategies for the treatment of Liver Cirrhosis

Readership

Hepatologists, molecular geneticists, gastroenterologists, oncologists, and hematologists.
