About the Authors
  • Nitric oxide research has emerged as one of the most important areas in bone and joint diseases. First published in 1998, this book draws together knowledge on the actions of this mediator and its role in such common diseases as arthritis and osteoporosis. It introduces the basic biology and biochemistry of nitric oxide, the immune response and bone biology. It reviews in depth the facts we know today and the future promise of this exciting area of research. The book will give scientists and clinicians a unique insight into this increasingly important area. It also emphasises potential treatments which exploit our understanding of the role of nitric oxide in bone and joint disease.

    • Was the first book to review the role of nitric oxide in such common diseases as arthritis and osteoporosis.
    • Clinical science from international authorities
    • Spans basic and clinical sciences, including therapeutic developments

    Reviews & endorsements

    Review of the hardback: 'This volume, on the role of nitric oxide (NO) in bone and joint disease, provides not only the expected extensive reviews of the relevant literature, but also raises stimulating questions about NO in its 197 pages; and by concentrating on its role in physiology of bone, cartilage and synovium metabolism, provides a unique collection of articles relating to its function in the wide variety of disease states affecting these tissues.' Max Field, Journal of the Royal College of Physicians of London

    Review of the hardback: '… concise and well written'. I. Sakkas, Endocrinology and Metabolism
