Bacterial Physiology and Metabolism

 Endocrinology/Metabolism/Diabetes Mellitus, Physiology  Comments Off on Bacterial Physiology and Metabolism
Jul 292018
 

Recent determination of genome sequences for a wide range of bacteria has made in-depth knowledge of prokaryotic metabolic function essential in order to give biochemical, physiological, and ecological meaning to the genomic information. Clearly describing the important metabolic processes that occur in prokaryotes under different conditions and in different environments, this advanced text provides an overview of the key cellular processes that determine bacterial roles in the environment, biotechnology, and human health. Prokaryotic structure is described as well as the means by which nutrients are transported into cells across membranes. Glucose metabolism through glycolysis and the TCA cycle are discussed, as well as other trophic variations found in prokaryotes, including the use of organic compounds, anaerobic fermentation, anaerobic respiratory processes, and photosynthesis. The regulation of metabolism through control of gene expression and control of the activity of enzymes is also covered, as well as survival mechanisms used under starvation conditions.

Inherited Metabolic Diseases: Research, Epidemiology and Statistics: A Guide to 100 Conditions

 Endocrinology/Metabolism/Diabetes Mellitus  Comments Off on Inherited Metabolic Diseases: Research, Epidemiology and Statistics: A Guide to 100 Conditions
Jul 232018
 

Inherited Metabolic Diseases are common enough for health, social service and education professionals to encounter them periodically, but rare enough for them to be poorly understood. They severely affect up to 1 in 10,000 people, and lead to a wide range of special needs in care and education. This guide provides specialist information on metabolic diseases for the non-specialist. In a concise, accessible and family-friendly format, each entry lists the names by which a condition is known, and explains the genetic causes of the disease, the physical effects, the patient’s symptoms, and available treatments. Key diseases from all ten major groups of metabolic disorders are described, and all entries have been reviewed by Specialist Advisers. The work has been coordinated by the charity Climb, Children Living with Inherited Metabolic Diseases. This uniquely comprehensive source of information is a vital reference for hospital doctors including paediatricians, general practitioners, nurses and other health professionals, social service and education staff and managers, and the families and carers of children with the conditions.

The Heterogeneity of Cancer Metabolism

 Endocrinology/Metabolism/Diabetes Mellitus, Oncology  Comments Off on The Heterogeneity of Cancer Metabolism
Jul 122018
 

Genetic alterations in cancer, in addition to being the fundamental drivers of tumorigenesis, can give rise to a variety of metabolic adaptations that allow cancer cells to survive and proliferate in diverse tumor microenvironments. This metabolic flexibility is different from normal cellular metabolic processes and leads to heterogeneity in cancer metabolism within the same cancer type or even within the same tumor.
In this book, we delve into the complexity and diversity of cancer metabolism, and highlight how understanding the heterogeneity of cancer metabolism is fundamental to the development of effective metabolism-based therapeutic strategies. Deciphering how cancer cells utilize various nutrient resources will enable clinicians and researchers to pair specific chemotherapeutic agents with patients who are most likely to respond with positive outcomes, allowing for more cost-effective and personalized cancer therapeutic strategies.

Diabetes Epidemic & You is not a cliché! It is a mandate for the awakening of the “silent” millions worldwide with “normal” fasting blood sugars and undiagnosed diabetes. If you have a “normal” fasting blood sugar, You may be one of the undiagnosed millions. Yes, I do mean You.

Since Hippocrates’ time, earliest diagnosis provided the greatest opportunity for treatment and cure. This book highlights the earliest identification of type 2 diabetes by utilizing the insulin assay with the oral glucose tolerance.

My cumulative experience of 14,384 oral glucose tolerances with insulin assays established the earliest diagnosis of prediabetes and diabetes when the blood sugars were normal. Prediabetes is type 2 diabetes. The tolerances were separated according to age groups, from 3 – ­13 years to 81 – ­90+ years. Each group was further divided into normal glucose tolerances, impaired glucose tolerances, and diabetes mellitus glucose tolerances. You, upon testing by oral glucose tolerance, will be in one of these categories.

This resource of oral glucose tolerance with insulin assay is unequaled in world medical literature. The importance of early diagnosis is that the clinical pathology of diabetes mainly heart disease, high blood pressure, stroke, cataracts, erectile dysfunction, and other metabolic disorders occurs not only in those with advanced diabetes, but also in those with “normal” blood sugars.

Yes, this could happen to You! When early diagnosis is coupled with specific therapy, the Diabetes Epidemic will be arrested and then reversed. Early diagnosis is the goal of this book beginning with You.
