An Evidence-Based Approach to Vitamins and Minerals: Health Benefits and Intake Recommendations, 2nd Edition

The latest and most accurate, peer-reviewed information on the role of vitamins and minerals in health and disease

An Evidence-Based Approach to Vitamins and Minerals: Health Benefits and Intake Recommendations is a trusted resource for the health professional who needs to interpret the explosion of studies on the role of micronutrients in health and disease and who is concerned about the proliferation of dietary supplements now available to the consumer.

This evidence-based reference, now in a second edition, presents the most current scientific, epidemiological and clinical research on the role of vitamins and minerals in preventing disease and promoting optimal health. Organized by micronutrient, the book covers biological function, deficiency, recommended daily allowance, role in disease prevention and treatment, sources, safety, and interactions with other micronutrients and drugs–all endorsed by the internationally acclaimed Linus Pauling Institute at Oregon State University.

Special Features:

Each chapter reviewed by a recognized expert in the field, who also served on the book’s Editorial Advisory Board
Contains the latest intake recommendations from the Linus Pauling Institute, as well as the Food and Nutrition Board of the Institute for Medicine
Provides a complete index by disease or disorder that facilitates easy location of condition-specific information found in multiple chapters
Extensively referenced, with hundreds of citations from the most current experimental, clinical and epidemiological studies
Includes useful appendices covering drug-nutrient interactions and nutrient-nutrient interactions, a glossary of terms, a units conversion table, and the Linus Pauling Institute “Prescription for Health,” summarizing its recommendations for a healthy diet, lifestyle, and supplement use

Taking the approach that micronutrients play a significant role not only in preventing deficiency disease, but in enhancing general health and averting chronic disease, this book is essential for physicians, nutritionists, and allied health professionals who need the most reliable, up-to-date information in this rapidly expanding field.

Ocular Surface: Anatomy and Physiology, Disorders and Therapeutic Care

This book has been conceived to aid eye care practitioners such as ophthalmologists and optometrists as well as other eye care or research professionals such as biologists, biochemists and medical doctors interested in the Ocular Surface.

This text is divided into four main sections. The first section is dedicated towards the anatomy and physiology of the ocular surface (defining ocular surface concept, tear film structure, corneal and conjunctival anatomy, etc.). The second section covers the most common ocular surface disorders (dry eye, anterior and posterior blepharitis, keratitis, ocular allergy, cicatricial conjunctivitis, and the ocular surface alterations related with Glaucoma treatment). The third section delineates the therapeutic care of these disorders, including topical, systemic and surgical treatment options and the fourth section addresses the relationship of the ocular surface and contact lenswear (describing the indications for contact lenses wear, their complications and managing the adverse effects related with contact lens-wear).

Thieme Test Prep for the USMLE®: Medical Histology and Embryology Q&A

Thieme Test Prep for the USMLE(R) Medical Histology and Embryology is the choice of medical students…

…The major test-prep resources do not focus on these subjects in detail. A question bank…would be beneficial to those who struggle with these as an additional resource for studying … – Ethan Young (Fourth-year medical student, University of South Dakota, Sanford School of Medicine)

I especially like the clinical focus of the questions, which are “two layers” deep instead of straight recall. – Deborah Chen (Third-year medical student, Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School)

Well thought out and also extremely well written. … an effective tool for students both in learning the material initially and also in reviewing it for the USMLE. – Roger A. Dashner, MS, PhD (Clinical Anatomist and CEO, Advanced Anatomical Services)

Thieme Test Prep for the USMLE(R) Medical Histology and Embryology fills a void in available board prep materials in its combination of histology and embryology. Consistently organized sections cover everything from microstructures of basic tissue and body systems to the development of all major body systems.

Key Highlights
Nearly 600 USMLE(R)-style multiple choice questions and detailed explanations, classified by organ system and difficulty level

Intracellular Calcium, 2 Volume Set

Thousands of imaginative scientists, over more than a century, have revealed the fascinating story of intracellular calcium, through a pathway of ingenious invention and discovery.
Intracellular Calcium, the definitive book on this topic, reveals:
The pathway of discovery and invention of intracellular calcium over more than 100 years.
The evidence for intracellular calcium as a universal switch in all animal, plant, fungal and microbial cells
How the components required for calcium signalling are named and classified.
The ingenious technology, which has been developed to study intracellular calcium.
How calcium is regulated inside cells and how it works to trigger an event.
The role of intracellular calcium in disease, cell injury and cell death.
How many drugs work through the calcium signalling system.
How intracellular calcium is involved in the action of many natural toxins.
How the intracellular calcium signalling system has evolved over 4000 million years, showing why it was crucial to the origin of life.
A key principle presented throughout the book is the molecular variation upon which the intracellular calcium signalling system depends. This variation occurs within the same cell type and between cells with different functions, providing the invisible matrix upon which Darwin and Wallace’s Natural Selection depends.
Featuring more than 100 figures, including detailed chemical structures as well as pictures of key pioneers in the field, a bibliography of more than 1500 references, as well as detailed subject and organism indices, this definitive work provides a unique source of scholarship for teachers and researchers in the biomedical sciences and beyond.
