Summary "Estrogen and the Vessel Wall marks the start of a new era in understanding the cardiovascular actions of estrogen. It examines the hypothesis, derived from a growing body of epidemiological data, that estrogen acts directly upon the vessel wall to produce beneficial effects in the cardiovascular system. This is the first book to give a comprehensive overview of the molecular and cellular mechanisms of the action of estrogens on the blood vessel wall."--BOOK JACKET. "Inspired by a satellite symposium of the IX International Vascular Biology Meeting, additional topics have been included, covered by leading experts. All subjects have been brought together here to produce an outstanding and integral publication, a milestone in the field of vascular research."--Jacket
Notes "A satellite symposium of the IX International Vascular Biology Meeting in Seattle, Washington in September 1996"--Page vii
