Summary "Diabetes has reached epidemic proportions, and the cardiovascular complications of diabetes are life-threatening and disabling. This book is unique in providing a simple explanation of the biochemical role of PKC in diabetes complications, which allows clinicians to understand why PKC inhibitors (in development) are an exciting prospect for future treatment to slow progression of eye and foot complications."--Jacket
