Mathematical Oncology 2013

 Oncology  Comments Off on Mathematical Oncology 2013
Nov 292019
 

With chapters on free boundaries, constitutive equations, stochastic dynamics, nonlinear diffusion–consumption, structured populations, and applications of optimal control theory, this volume presents the most significant recent results in the field of mathematical oncology. It highlights the work of world-class research teams, and explores how different researchers approach the same problem in various ways.
Tumors are complex entities that present numerous challenges to the mathematical modeler. First and foremost, they grow. Thus their spatial mean field description involves a free boundary problem. Second, their interiors should be modeled as nontrivial porous media using constitutive equations. Third, at the end of anti-cancer therapy, a small number of malignant cells remain, making the post-treatment dynamics inherently stochastic. Fourth, the growth parameters of macroscopic tumors are non-constant, as are the parameters of anti-tumor therapies. Changes in these parameters may induce phenomena that are mathematically equivalent to phase transitions. Fifth, tumor vascular growth is random and self-similar. Finally, the drugs used in chemotherapy diffuse and are taken up by the cells in nonlinear ways.
Mathematical Oncology 2013 will appeal to graduate students and researchers in biomathematics, computational and theoretical biology, biophysics, and bioengineering.

Posttranslational Protein Modifications in the Reproductive System

 Reproductive Health  Comments Off on Posttranslational Protein Modifications in the Reproductive System
Nov 292019
 

This book’s aim is to increase the awareness of a great variety of posttranslational modifications in the male and female reproductive system. Some of the most intriguing reproductive strategies, mechanisms, and pathways involving PTM are discussed, with an added angle of evolutionary conservation and diversity. The book also chapters on sperm-egg binding, as well as on histone modification in both the embryo and sperm. Chapters are also devoted to protein ubiquitination, the regulation of sperm function during fertilization in mammals and tubulin modifications in gametes and embryos. There are no other current books on posttranslational protein modifications as they relate to reproduction, making this contribution unique in the field. It is useful for both researchers and graduate students alike.

Comprehensive Textbook of Intraoperative Transesophageal Echocardiography

 Cardiovascular  Comments Off on Comprehensive Textbook of Intraoperative Transesophageal Echocardiography
Nov 292019
 

Written by more than 100 internationally recognized experts, this volume is the first definitive and comprehensive text/reference on intraoperative transesophageal echocardiography. It features 1,000 full-color echocardiograms and covers every aspect of intraoperative TEE, from physics and “knobology,” to specific studies of cardiac valves and arteries, to the use of TEE in cardiac and noncardiac surgeries.

Major sections cover principles of echocardiography, intraoperative examination, critical care, coronary artery disease, valvular heart disease, thoracic aortic disease, congestive heart failure, interventional cardiovascular medicine, and noncardiac surgery. The text focuses on uses of TEE in surgical decision-making—preoperative, intraoperative, and postoperative—and includes specific clinical recommendations.

Assembly of the Executive Mind: Evolutionary Insights and a Paradigm for Brain Health

 Neurology/Neurosurgery  Comments Off on Assembly of the Executive Mind: Evolutionary Insights and a Paradigm for Brain Health
Nov 292019
 

Over 90% of the brain is concerned with higher cortical functions, yet understanding of syndromes, functions, and measurements remains unchartered. This valuable handbook illuminates brain function, natural environment and human function, by delving into the interdisciplinary study. Multifaceted in its perspective, this book demonstrates bi-directionality of information exchange between disciplines. This book weaves around key case reports, series, control studies and cohort studies from cognitive neurology registries, to present the most current, practical research. Gaining appreciation for the fundamental formation and assembly of the supervisory area of the brain will inform an understanding of conditions and behavior for neuroscience professionals, clinical brain scientists and medical students in neuroscience, worldwide. Authored by a leading expert in cognitive neurology, this book guides the reader through the evolutionary, or neuro-archeological, aspects of how the frontal lobes and their circuitry were assembled, drawing key insights into form, function and treatment.

Neonatal Immunity (Contemporary Immunology)

 Immunology  Comments Off on Neonatal Immunity (Contemporary Immunology)
Nov 292019
 

A critical review of the classic, as wells as most recent-and quite seminal-findings concerning the phenotypic and molecular characteristics of both fetal and neonatal B and T cells, the cells that mediate antibody and cellular immune responses in newborns and infants. Dr. Bona shows how the antibody response of neonates is modulated by maternal antibodies and how, in certain cases, this can cause transient or life-threatening neonatal autoimmune disease. He also describes the characteristics of neonatal tolerance induced by foreign allo- and self-antigens, which are the basis for understanding impaired infant immune response and which provide a rationale for the development of efficient neonatal vaccines. By making clear the characteristics and differences between the immune system and the immune responses of both newborns and infants, compared to those of adults, Dr. Bona offers insights and challenging hypotheses that promise to help overcome the poor responses of neonates to various antigens.

Anaesthesia for Minimally Invasive Surgery

 Anesthesiology, Surgery  Comments Off on Anaesthesia for Minimally Invasive Surgery
Nov 292019
 

Minimally invasive or laparoscopic surgery is becoming increasingly commonplace, as technology has enabled a minimally invasive approach to be offered as a feasible alternative to conventional open surgery for a number of important surgical procedures. This up-to-date, comprehensive, but concise and practically oriented introduction to the subject will be of value to all anaesthetists with an interest in minimally invasive techniques. It begins by covering the key aspects of basic physiology, moves on to patient preparation and positioning, monitoring, the anaesthetic procedures themselves (including possible complications and contraindications and easy-to-follow ‘how to’ guides for a number of key procedures) and finally, post-operative pain. Written by a leading expert in the field, from a well-known European centre of excellence, it is essential reading for anaesthetists and intensivists at all levels of expertise.

Targeted Radionuclide Tumor Therapy: Biological Aspects

 Radiology  Comments Off on Targeted Radionuclide Tumor Therapy: Biological Aspects
Nov 292019
 

The last three decades have provided opportunities to explore the potential of treating malignant diseases with antibodies or other targeting molecules labelled with nuclides. The expanding array of new targeting molecules (recombinant antibodies or peptides) may increase the therapeutic efficacy. The title of this book “Targeted Radionuclide Tumor Therapy – Biological aspects” was selected to reinforce the concept that a major focus was devoted to understanding the biological effects of targeting and radiation. Furthermore, our rapidly expanding knowledge of low dose-rate effects, different types of cell death, autosensitization and the increasingly likely existence of cancer stem cells suggests to us that even more efficient approaches in targeting might be possible in the future. The development of targeted therapy is a true multidisciplinary enterprise involving physician scientists from the fields of nuclear medicine, radiation therapy, diagnostic radiology, surgery, gynaecology, pathology and medical oncology/haematology. It also involves many preclinical scientists working with experimental animal models, immunochemistry, recombinant antibody technologies, radiochemistry, radiation physics and basic cell biology. It is the ambition of the editors to enable deeper insights in the process of improving targeted therapy. We believe that the time now has come when targeted therapy can soon be added to standard oncology treatment regimens.
