Edward J. Massaro and a panel of leading biomedical researchers and clinical practitioners review, in-depth, the status of our current knowledge concerning the biochemistry of copper in general and its role in health and disease in particular. Drawing on the wealth of new information emerging from the molecular biology revolution, these experts survey the most important research areas of copper pharmacology and toxicology, including copper proteins and transport, copper toxicity and therapeutics, and copper metabolism and homeostasis. They also discuss the molecular pathogenesis of copper in a variety of metabolic diseases, Menkes and Wilson's diseases and occipital horn syndrome, as well as the role of copper in Parkinson's disease, prion disease, familial amytrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), and Alzheimer's disease.

"...biochemical and molecular researchers from around the globe have produced 35 chapters documenting the present state of knowledge in selected areas of copper pharmacology and toxicology. the state-of-the-art data provided will no doubt stimulate challenging research with this essential trace element required by organism ranging from bacteria to mammals." - Veterinary and Human Toxicology

"The book has excellent introductory chapters, and summarizes much recent research at the genetic and cellular levels." - Newsletter of the British Toxicological Society

"Dr. Massaro must be congratulated for editing this comprehensive book on copper. There are so many outstanding chapters in this compendium that highlighting any one of them should not detract from the others...this book is a treasure trove of references. The price of the book, though modest for this compendium would be justified for the Preface and the first chapter alone. This book is highly recommended. At the present time it has no equal." -International Journal of Toxicology
