White JG (2007) Platelets

Abstract: The goal of this book is to be a comprehensive and definitive source of knowledge about platelets. Platelets integrates the entire field of platelet biology, pathophysiology, and clinical medicine. Platelets are small cells of great importance in many pathophysiological processes, including thrombosis, hemorrhage, inflammation, and cancer. In addition to primary disorders of platelet number and function, platelets have a critical role in coronary artery disease (the most common cause of human death in developed countries) and in other common diseases including stroke, peripheral vascular disease, and diabetes mellitus. The intended audience for Platelets includes hematologists, cardiologists, stroke physicians, blood bankers, pathologists, and researchers in thrombosis and hemostasis, as well as students and fellows in these fields.
