This state-of-the-art review provides an in-depth and critical summary of homocysteine from its molecular basis to clinical relevance and current clinical trials of folic acid and vitamin B6. Written by leading workers in the field, the book provides an authoritative, comprehensive and thoroughly up-to-date overview for scientists and clinicians and any others engaged in the field. It will also be useful to anyone involved in managing vascular patients or cardiac risk factors, as well as biochemists, pharmacologists, general physicians, cardiologists and clinical and basic researchers with an interest in preventive medicine.

Editorial Reviews

`The book is therefore a great reference for an up-to-date review of any one of the many pathways involved in homocysteine metabolism. The editor should be applauded for bringing together some of the leaders in the field of homocysteine research and thus compiling a comprehensive review that should be on the shelf of any scientist working in the area of homocysteine.' Clinical Chemistry, 47:6 (2001)
