Camel Clinical Biochemistry and Hematology

 Hematology  Comments Off on Camel Clinical Biochemistry and Hematology
Sep 252018
 

This work brings together a wealth of data regarding the reference values and factors of variation in biochemical parameters used by camel veterinarians and scientists to determine these animals’ nutritional and clinical status. It also explores several technical aspects involved in determining these parameters, sampling procedures, and essential elements in the interpretation of the results. Though many texts are available on small and large ruminants, much less is known about species confined to the marginal zones of tropical and Mediterranean countries, such as camels. This book addresses precisely this research gap, on the one hand by presenting an extensive review of the literature, and on the other by synthesizing the outcomes of the authors’ numerous previous works.
In veterinary medicine, blood tests to help diagnose diseases in cattle were first proposed nearly a century ago, but were mainly developed in the 1960s, initially at specialized research or veterinary services laboratories, and eventually, with the advent of new equipment and the miniaturization of the analyzers, finding their way into veterinarians’ cabinets. Beyond their diagnostic value, veterinary surgeons and zootechnicians also speculated on the potential use of blood tests to evaluate animals’ nutritional status. Thus, a whole range of analyses are now proposed to the stakeholders responsible for animal health. Such analyses could help to define a metabolic profile, which would offer a valuable decision-making tool for experts and researchers alike.

Handbook of Dystonia, 2nd edition

 Neurology/Neurosurgery  Comments Off on Handbook of Dystonia, 2nd edition
Sep 252018
 

As many as 250,000 people in the United States have dystonia, making it the third most common movement disorder following essential tremor and Parkinson’s disease.

Authoritative and reader-friendly, Handbook of Dystonia, Second Edition provides a wide-ranging overview of the latest research and developments regarding the pathogenesis, evaluation, and management of the disease. The book offers detailed coverage of every available treatment option for dystonia and includes four categorized sections on medical management, botulinum toxin injections, phenol and neurolytic therapy, and surgical intervention.

The book reviews the genetic factors of dystonia and supplies in-depth coverage of the neuroanatomy, neurophysiology, and neuropathology of the disease. It covers secondary causes of dystonia, including drug-induced and psychogenic presentations. It also examines non-motor symptoms relating to movement disorders and analyzes innovative approaches for treatment including deep brain stimulation.

New to the Second Edition:

Four new chapters dedicated to the discussion of individual botulinum toxins recently approved to treat dystonia: Botox, Myobloc, Disport, and Xeomin
Dystonic symptoms associated with Parkinson’s disorders
The use of Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) as a treatment option for dystonia
Spasticity and its pathogenesis, evaluation, and treatment with toxins, other injectables and surgical therapies
Summarizing what is known about the disorder, the book dramatically improves the recognition and understanding of this debilitating disease.

Marine Organisms as Model Systems in Biology and Medicine

 Miscellaneous  Comments Off on Marine Organisms as Model Systems in Biology and Medicine
Sep 252018
 

This book highlights the potential advantages of using marine invertebrates like tunicates, echinoderms, sponges and cephalopods as models in both biological and medical research. Bioactive compounds found in marine organisms possess antibacterial, antifungal, anti-diabetic and anti-inflammatory properties, and can affect the immune and nervous systems. Despite substantial research on the medicinal attributes of various marine invertebrates, they are still very much underrepresented in scientific literature: the majority of cell, developmental and evolutionary scientific journals only publish research conducted on a few well-known model systems like Drosophila melanogaster or Xenopus laevis.
Addressing that gap, this book introduces readers to new model organisms like starfish or nemertera. By showing their benefits with regard to regeneration, stem cell research and Evo-Devo, the authors provide a cross-sectional view encompassing various disciplines of biological research. As such, this book will not only appeal to scientists currently working on marine organisms, but will also inspire future generations to pursue research of their own.
