Genetic Diagnosis of Endocrine Disorders, 1st ed. 2010



Genetic Diagnosis of Endocrine Disorders, 2010
Roy E. Weiss and Samuel Refetoff
ISBN-10: 012374430X
ISBN-13: 978-0123744302
Academic Press






The field of genetic diagnosis of disease is exploding now, with multiple laboratories developing tests for current clinical use. Most practicing endocrinologists, pediatricians and internal medicine physicians don't understand which test to order, how the tests are done, or how to interpret the results. One of the most exciting development in medicine today is the pharmacogenomics revolution - enocrinologists and geneticists need to understand how personalized medicine will fit into the daily care of patients. While this is a quickly growing area and there are textbooks on pharmacogenomics, there is no one source for the spectrum of Endocrine diseases.

Atlas of Staging in Gynecological Cancer, 1st ed. 2008



Atlas of Staging in Gynecological Cancer
J. Richard Smith, Jeremiah Healy, Giuseppe Del Priore
ISBN-10: 1846284333
ISBN-13: 978-1846284335
Springer




"Atlas of Staging in Gynecological Cancer" is designed to be used in conjunction with diagnostic procedures between the surgeon and the radiologist. It describes the two common staging regimes used by all units across the world, namely, the FIGO staging system and the TNM system.
The ‘landscape’ format allows each chapter to open on the left hand side and read across the double spread, enabling the reader to see both staging systems at once. Each chapter has a separate section on Epidemiology, Diagnosis, with radiological plates, Management, in tabular form, and Key Points. The book takes the reader through each gynaecologic cancer with a short text accompanying clear radiographic images with legends. Staging is also shown in pictorial form in order to aid clarity.
The book will be of particular interest to the multi-disciplinary team who looks after this group of patients namely, clinical and radiation oncologists, surgeons, pathologists, radiologists and specialist nurses, all with their respective trainees.

Current Concepts in Autoimmunity and Chronic Inflammation, 2006




Current Concepts in Autoimmunity and Chronic Inflammation, 2006
A. Radbruch and P. E. Lipsky
ISBN-10: 364206745X
ISBN-13: 978-3642067457
Springer Berlin Heidelberg





The ethiopathologies of autoimmune diseases are complex. A broad variety of cell types and gene products are involved. However, clinical and experimental evidence suggests that the importance of an individual factor changes during the course of the disease. Factors and cell types that induce acute autoreactivity and initiate an autoimmune disease could be distinct from those that drive a chronic course of that disease

(Biochemistry Research Trends)
Stefan Fuchs and Max Auer
ISBN-10: 1608762831
ISBN-13: 978-1608762835
Nova Science Pub Inc





Biochemistry is the organic chemistry of compounds and processes occurring in organisms. Histocytochemistry is the study of intracellular distribution of chemical, reaction sites, enzymes, etc. by means of staining reactions, radioactive isotope uptake, selective metal distribution in electron microscopy, or other methods. This book focuses on the role of norepinephrine in neuroinflammation, discusses the contribution of norepinephrine to Alzheimer's (AD) and Parkinson's Disease (PD) and provides an overview of potential therapeutical options targeting this neurotransmitter. Using methodologies such as questionnaires and laboratory tasks, experimental results showing specific effects related to noradrenaline in both clinical and experimental studies are described. This book also provides the current findings on the relationships between sympathetic nerve activity, B-adrenoceptor polymorphisms, and renal function. Recent methodologies that are useful for advanced immunohistochemistry (IHC) analysis in pathological research into therapeutic agents is also analysed. Other chapters in this book discuss the unresolved areas of plasma cell research, an analysis of a new technology based on B-Cell targeting and its advantages over conventional methods for selective generation of novel monoclonal antibodies, as well as a review of the regulation of proteases and their role during the biocontrol process. Recent advances in the isolation and characterisation of glycosidases from hyperthermophilic microorganisms and the methods used for their application in oligosaccharide synthesis are explored as well.
