Cardiovascular Diabetology: Clinical, Metabolic and Inflammatory Facets (Advances in Cardiology, Vol. 45)

The prevalence of obesity, metabolic syndrome and diabetes – three links of the same ‘atherothrombotic chain’ – has reached pandemic proportions worldwide. As a result, our civilization is at war against a threatening enemy: cardio-diabetes. Several independent physiological processes underlie the clustering of cardio-diabetes, including central obesity, insulin resistance, dyslipidemia, inflammation, impaired glucose tolerance, and hypertension. Early detection is of overwhelming importance for public health. The complex and intimate relationship between cardiovascular disease and diabetes from basic science to clinical and therapeutic concerns is discussed in this outstanding book. Beginning with molecular, biochemical, inflammatory and cellular aspects, this publication continues with histological and pathophysiological issues, details particular problems in specific metabolic and clinical settings, and finally analyzes several aspects of clinical pharmacology focusing on the optimal management of combined dyslipidemia and non-insulin antidiabetic therapy in cardiac diabetic patients. This book will be a gain in knowledge for every cardiologist, diabetologist, specialist in internal medicine, nutritionalist, general physician and medical student.

Cardiovascular Disease: Methods and Protocols, Vol. 1: Genetics (Methods in Molecular Medicine, Vol. 128)

Features: Used Book in Good Condition

Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death in developed countries, but is quickly becoming an epidemic in such well-populated countries as China, India, and other developing nations. Cardiovascular research is the key to the prevention, diagnosis, and management of cardiovascular disease. Vigorous and cross-disciplinary approaches are required for successful card- vascular research. As the boundaries between different scientific disciplines, particularly in the life sciences, are weakening and disappearing, a successful investigator needs to be competent in many different areas, including genetics, cell biology, biochemistry, physiology, and structural biology. The newly developed field of molecular medicine is a cross-disciplinary science that seeks to comprehend disease causes and mechanisms at the molecular level, and to apply this basic research to the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of diseases and disorders. This volume in the Methods in Molecular Medicine series, C- diovascular Disease, provides comprehensive coverage of both basic and the most advanced approaches to the study and characterization of cardiovascular disease. These methods will advance knowledge of the mechanisms, diagnoses, and treatments of cardiovascular disease. Cardiovascular Disease is a timely volume in which the theory and pr- ciples of each method are described in the Introduction section, followed by a detailed description of the materials and equipment needed, and step-by-step protocols for successful execution of the method. A notes section provides advice for potential problems, any modifications, and alternative methods.

Cardiotoxicity of Non-Cardiovascular Drugs

By (author): Giorgio Minotti

Some drugs which are not aimed at treating heart disease have nevertheless been found to have profound effects on heart muscle. Cardiotoxicity is one of the major forms of toxicity seen in drugs and it accounts for most drug recalls and delays experienced in regulatory approvals.In recent years a number of non-cardiac blockbuster drugs such as terfenadine have been withdrawn from major markets because of cardiotoxicity concerns, while other drugs have either been withdrawn prior to marketing or required labelling changes that significantly restricted their use.

In Cardiotoxicity of Non-Cardiovascular Drugs international experts describe the molecular mechanisms and clinical read-outs of cardiac events induced by a broad variety of noncardiovascular drugs. Particular emphasis is paid to the preclinical screening of drug cardiotoxicity. Topics include:

  •  metabolic targets of cardiotoxicity
  • regulatory aspects
  • translating molecular mechanisms into clinical trials
  • structure-activity relationships in arrhythmias by antihistamines and psychoactive drugs
  • cardiovascular toxicity of antitumor drugs
  • cardiovascular toxicities of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs
  • cardiovascular toxicities of antiretroviral therapies

Cardiotoxicity of Non-Cardiovascular Drugs is an essential guide to this important area of drug development. It will find a place on the bookshelves of researchers, regulators and students in medicinal chemistry, drug development, pharmacology, pharmacy and cardiovascular disease.
