The Legacy of Harvey Cushing: Profiles of Patient Care

 Miscellaneous  Comments Off on The Legacy of Harvey Cushing: Profiles of Patient Care
Jun 292018
 

Derived from Harvey Cushing’s remarkable personal collection in the Brain Tumor Registry, The Legacy of Harvey Cushing: Profiles of Patient Care presents a stunning historical account of Cushing’s surgical cases and research from 1905 to 1930.

This beautifully illustrated book features
800 of Cushing’s surgical drawings and photographs of patients and tumor specimens. Preserved untouched for sixty years in the Yale University Library, the images provide the earliest catalog of neurological and neuropathological disease and reveal the techniques employed by the founder of modern neurosurgery. The editors have carefully integrated these high-quality photographs and illustrations into a compelling narrative constructed from patients’ hospital records and Cushing’s meticulous notes at preoperative and postoperative stages of management. Discharge notes, letters from the family of patients, photographs of patients years after surgery, and death reports further humanize each clinical case and speak to Cushing’s lasting dedication to his patients.

The book provides a glimpse of the extraordinary contribution that both Cushing and his patients made to the progress of neurological surgery in the twentieth century. This unique book will be prized by today’s generation of neurological surgeons and neuropathologists.

Contemporary Targeted Therapies in Rheumatology

 Rheumatology  Comments Off on Contemporary Targeted Therapies in Rheumatology
Jun 292018
 

Targeted therapies of rheumatic diseases have become a reality and have completely changed patient care as well as patient expectations. Initial success with therapies aimed at blocking TNF and IL-1 has stimulated the development of additional targeted approaches focused on other cytokines as well as specific cells and pathways involved in the pathogenesis of rheumatic diseases.Along with the clinical success of some of these targeted approaches, new information has been generated from their application concerning the pathophysiologic mechanisms underlying rheumatic diseases and, as a result, new targets have been identified.The ongoing dialogue between basic scientists, clinical investigators, metrologists and clinicians remains an essential component for the further development, refinement, integration and optimization of targeted therapies of the rheumatic diseases. The goal of this volume is to provide comprehensive, up to date information on all aspects of the rapidly evolving development of targeted therapies of the rheumatic diseases to foster further advances to improve therapy of patients with these conditions.

Targeted Therapies in Rheumatology established itself as an excellent reference for all those needing to know about the clinical implications of new drugs and developments for patients suffering from rheumatoid arthritis. This volume takes up the further developments that have occurred in several of the drug therapies covered in the first volume, as well as looking at the latest areas of promising research.

Heat Shock Proteins in the Immune System

 Immunology  Comments Off on Heat Shock Proteins in the Immune System
Jun 292018
 

Experts from around the world review the current field of the immunobiology of heat shock proteins, and provide a comprehensive account of how these molecules are spearheading efforts in the understanding of various pathways of the immune system. This one-stop resource contains numerous images to both help illustrate the research on heat shock proteins, and better clarify the field for the non-expert.
Heat shock proteins (HSPs) were discovered in 1962 and were quickly recognized for their role in protecting cells from stress. Twenty years later, the immunogenicity of a select few HSPs was described, and for the past 30 years, these findings have been applied to numerous branches of immunology, including tumor immunology and immunosurveillance, immunotherapy, etiology of autoimmunity, immunotherapy of infectious diseases, and expression of innate receptors. While HSPs can be used to manipulate immune responses by exogenous administration, they appear to be involved in initiation of de novo immune responses to cancer and likely in the maintenance of immune homeostasis.

Putting Systems and Complexity Sciences Into Practice: Sharing the Experience

 Miscellaneous  Comments Off on Putting Systems and Complexity Sciences Into Practice: Sharing the Experience
Jun 292018
 

This idea-packed resource takes systems and complexity sciences out of blue-sky territory and into the concrete world of contemporary healthcare practice. Beginning with a new reframing of health and illness, its chapters redesign traditional disease-centered models of care into modern, health-centered—and patient-centered—health service systems. The approaches shown here combine innovation and common sense to recognize and attend to patients’ needs across areas including health education and training, information accessibility, health service organization and delivery, and disease in individual context. The variety of solutions applied to this wide spectrum of issues shows the suitability of systems, complexity, and adaptive thinking to the ongoing objectives of making health services more responsive, effective, and equitable.
Highlights of the coverage:

Healthy smoker: an oxymoron? Maybe, but it is more complicated than that
Transforming monitoring and improving care with variability-derived clinical decision support
Linking Gulf War illness to genome instability, somatic evolution, and complex adaptive systems
Complexity of knowledge in primary care: understanding the discipline’s requisite knowledge: a bibliometric study
New ways of knowing and researching: integrating complexity into a translational health sciences program
Understanding the emergency department ecosystem using agent-based modelling
Putting Systems and Complexity Sciences into Practice is an inspiring idea book that sill interest health policymakers, health financiers, organizational leaders, healthcare administrators, clinicians, researchers, students, and interested lay readers.
