Platelets and Aspirin-Induced Asthma is the first book to be published that reflects research conducted on aspirin-induced asthma pathogenesis. It is examined through positions of neuroimmunoendocrine interactions in organism. The Melatonin hormone plays a key role, being the regulator and coordinator of complicated and interrelated biological processes. This new concept of aspirin-induced asthma pathogenesis suggests new methods for treatment of this disease by means of correcting the melatonin content in the patient's organism. Investigations into the mechanisms of aspirin-induced asthma as a pathology of melatonin producing cells of platelets helps to determine high-risk groups and develop preventive measures and adequate therapy.

  • The first book to examine the role of platelets, melatonin and diffuse neuroimmunoendocrine system in the pathogenesis of aspirin-induced asthma
  • Proposes a new concept of aspirin-induced asthma pathogenesis that suggests new diagnostic and treatment methods for the disease
