Here is a compendium of data pertinent to the methods and protocols that have contributed to both recent advances in molecular medicine in general as well as to molecular basis of rheumatic disease in particular. This two-volume work collects the contributions of leaders in the field who cover such exciting and cutting edge topics as imaging and immunohistochemistry, analysis of cartilage and bone catabolism, immunobiology, and cell trafficking.

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"This volume excels in the presentation of basic, fundamental techniques requisite in the anaylsis of arthritic disease.  Especially well done are the immunobiology and animal model sections." -Doody's Book Review, Weighted Numerical Score:96 - 4 Stars"This multiauthored . compendium of arthritis research methods and protocols provides pertinent practical information for the bench researcher as well as for the interested clinician. . It is a worthwhile reference to have in the research laboratory . . I enthusiastically recommend . and believe this publication would have broad appeal to the rheumatologic community and to those in related specialties. . I congratulate the authors on developing an excellent compendium of arthritis research . ." (Robert J. Quinet, JAMA, April, 2008)
