Summary Platelets, Thrombosis and the Vessel Wall aims to highlight the key areas of platelet function in the regulation of haemostasis and thrombosis and covers areas such as platelet production, interaction of platelets with leucocytes, mechanisms of cross-talk between platelets, leukocytes, and endothelium. The two major clinical causes of thrombosis, anti-phospholipid antibodies and genetic predisposition, are also addressed
