About the Book
The book contains preclinical studies that test proof-of-concept or examine mechanisms of action and results of international clinical trials and registries; the crisis of innovation and development of new clinical therapies, pluripotent stem cells and basics of stem cell biology and how it might be exploited for cardiovascular uses; stem cells from a clinical utility as an emerging potential therapy; material on the metabolic power plant of the myocytes, the mitochondria; myocardial inflammation, which is often a component mechanism of injury, and how prevention or suppression of inflammation might prevent injury or limit its extent; ischemic injury; cell death, either programmed or induced, along with cellular reparative mechanisms; gene sequencing and the information it provides; epigenetic; genomic association studies.
Dr. H. Vernon Anderson, began his career as an electrical engineer, but quickly migrated into medicine and cardiology, and ultimately to interventional cardiology. He trained with Dr. Andreas Gruentzig in Atlanta, who is considered to be the father of interventional cardiology, and with Dr. Spencer King. In addition to his clinical leadership, Dr. Anderson is active with the American Heart Association, the American College of Cardiology and the Society for Cardiac Angiography and Interventions. He has served and continues to serve on numerous committees, work groups and task forces. He is a researcher, teacher, and clinician in the Division of Cardiovascular Medicine. Dr. Anderson is a recognized expert in the treatment of acute coronary syndromes. He has lectured internationally on myriad interventional cardiology topics. He served for 11 years as an Associate Editor for Circulation (1993-2004), the premier scientific journal of the American Heart Association. Currently he serves on the editorial boards of The Journal of the American College of Cardiology and The Journal of Invasive Cardiology.
