Carole Mendelson has assembled a panel of leading investigators to critically review the various classes of endocrine, paracrine, and neuroendocrine factors that play a role in the regulation of lung development and surfactant production. Special attention is accorded the actions of glucocorticoids in lung development and the synthesis of surfactant glycerophospholipids and proteins. Also extensively treated are the roles of cell-cell interactions and the elaboration of various growth factors and bioactive peptides in pulmonary cell differentiation, gene expression, and pathophysiology. State-of-the-art and comprehensive, Endocrinology of the Lung constitutes a powerful new standard guide that illuminates the complex endocrinology of the lung for all those actively investigating hormone action in pulmonary biology and medicine today.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"The book is well organized and generally well written, with fewer overlaps and disagreements between authors than is normally seen in a multiauthored book. This book provides a welcome review of the role of hormones in fetal lung maturation. The book succeeds in appealing to pulmonary and developmental biologists."-Doody's Health Sciences Book Review Journal

"This book will be welcomed by neonatologists, pediatric endocrinologists consulting on neonatal wards, obstetricians and last but not least pulmonologists. To the best of my knowledge it brings together for the the first time the latest knowledge on the role of hormones especially glucocorticoids on lung development and surfactant production." -Journal of Pediatric Endocrinology & Metabolism.
