Description
This comprehensive, authoritative treatise covers every aspect of bone and cartilage metabolism. It includes the basic components of bone and cartilage, their chemical structure, their relation to each other in the complex framework of tissues, their functioning within the tissues and the body, and their use as disease markers in bone and joint disorders.

Part I provides an up-to-date account of current knowledge of the structure, biosynthesis and molecular biology of the major tissue components, including the important regulators such as cytokines, growth factors, and proteases.

Part II covers the organizational structure and cellular metabolism of bone and cartilage. For bone, questions on mineralization, remodeling and hormonal regulation are covered as well as the derivation of products of metabolism: for cartilage, the physiology and pathology are reviewed in relation to the products of metabolism, together with recent data from animal and in vitro models.

Part III deals with using bone and cartilage as biomarkers of health and disease, both in experimental and clinical settings. A wide range of disorders is covered, including different forms of osteoporosis, metastatic bone disease, arthritic diseases, and some of the less common growth and degenerative abnormalities.
