Arthritis Research
Methods and Protocols
Volume 1
edited by Andrew P. Cope

Arthritis Research is a compendium of data pertinent ot the methods and protocols that have contributed to recent advances in molecular medicine in general, and to the molecular basis of rheumatic disease in particular.

Arthritis Research, Volume 1 discusses:

  • synovial joint morphology
  • histopathology
  • immunohistochemistry
  • cartilage matrix and bone biology
  • cell trafficking
  • migration and invasion
