Anti-fibrotic Drug Discovery Editors: Jehrod Brenneman, Malliga R Iyer


About this book

Fibrosis is a condition with globally high unmet medical need, and as such is a highly active area of academic and pharmaceutical research covering multiple treatment targets, organs, tissues and therapeutic approaches. Anti-fibrotic Drug Discovery is a single source reference for the latest drug-discovery approaches to tackle fibrosis in various tissues, comprehensively covering recent success and future perspectives on emerging therapeutic intervention points. The book highlights significant pre-clinical and clinical drugs currently being developed globally for this disorder. This book is ideal for postgraduate students and researchers with an interest in anti-fibrotic drug discovery as well as clinicians specialising in liver, kidney, heart and lung disease, in which fibrosis plays a key role in pathology.
