The Pharmacology of Vascular Smooth Muscle

C. J. Garland and J. A. Angus


This book provides an understanding of how events at the cellular level impact on the cardiovascular system as a whole. Advances in knowledge are highlighted and all the themes are presented from the single cell (smooth muscle endothelial and nerve) level through to the blood vessel wall to the vascular system as a functional system. This book provides an introduction to wide-ranging pharmacological principles and major techniques in this subject area, and is a source of background literature for research in vascular pharmacology.

Keywords: blood vessel wall, smooth muscle cell, cellular level, cardiovascular system, nerve cell, pharmacological techniques, vascular pharmacology
