Mar 132018
 

This well-illustrated book, now in a revised and updated second edition, is an up-to-date practical guide to the integration of nuclear medicine into the daily practice of endocrinologists, endocrine surgeons, oncologists, and other professionals involved in the diagnosis and treatment of endocrine disorders. The new edition includes information on novel tracers and procedures as well as updates on management guidelines and protocols. The focus is especially on the contributions of SPECT/CT, PET/CT, and PET/MRI in endocrinology. An opening section discusses general aspects of nuclear medicine, such as dosimetry, radiation protection, and choice of radiopharmaceutical. The role of nuclear endocrinology in diagnosis and treatment of different pathologies is then addressed in a series of chapters focusing on the thyroid, parathyroid, adrenal, and pituitary glands, the ovaries and testes, and neuroendocrine tumors. An important feature is the inclusion of informative clinical cases that highlight key aspects of practice. The book amply demonstrates the ability of modern nuclear medicine procedures to improve the care of patients with endocrine disease.

Diabetes Mellitus

 Endocrinology/Metabolism/Diabetes Mellitus  Comments Off on Diabetes Mellitus

About 29 million Americans (9.3% of the population) in 2012 had diabetes. Approximately 1.25 million American children and adults have type 1 diabetes, and almost all diabetes in children less than 10 years of age is type 1. About 208,000 people younger than 20 years (0.25 % of this age group) have been diagnosed with diabetes (type 1 or type 2). Diabetes care requires a collaborative approach with multi-disciplinary professionals involved from the health, nursing, social and educational fields in order to provide optimal service to the child or adolescent and their family. Early diagnosis, treatment and monitoring can prevent or delay the long-term complications in various organs of the body, and regular care and service to this population is therefore essential. In this book, we provide a short overview of issues involved in diabetes care for children and adolescents.

Reversing Diabetes in 21 Days

 Endocrinology/Metabolism/Diabetes Mellitus  Comments Off on Reversing Diabetes in 21 Days
Feb 222018
 

A twenty-one-day challenge is all it takes to get on the path of reversing diabetes. Sounds unbelievable? It’s true.

Based on her revolutionary diabetes reversal programme, Dr Nandita Shah, renowned homeopath and founder-director of SHARAN, elaborately breaks down the real cause of diabetes using scientific evidence and intelligently outlines a routine that will not just prevent the disease but also reverse it.

By addressing the cause of insulin resistance and lack of insulin, Reversing Diabetes in 21 Days provides a fresh and practical perspective on how to cure diabetes. This book carefully takes into account the Indian context, customs, tastes and thought processes to tailor the best possible step-by-step guide that an average Indian can follow.

Interspersed with testimonials, stories and real-life experiences of past participants, this book will show you that type 2 diabetes and many cases of type 1 diabetes are indeed reversible!

Hydrogen Peroxide Metabolism in Health and Disease

 Endocrinology/Metabolism/Diabetes Mellitus  Comments Off on Hydrogen Peroxide Metabolism in Health and Disease
Feb 192018
 

Much of the biology of oxidative stress and oxidative signalling centres on the generation and handling of hydrogen peroxide. The overall aim for this book would be to provide an insightful and useful forum to assist with the understanding of the relevance of hydrogen peroxide generation and how this is managed in human biology. The target audience would be those who currently have an interest in the generation of ROS, but who do not have expertise in chemistry, as well as those experts in the chemistry of oxidative stress, but without detailed understanding of the biologically relevant setting. We would aim to bridge the gap in understanding between chemistry and biology.

Correlation-based Network Analysis of Cancer Metabolism: A New Systems Biology Approach in Metabolomics

 Endocrinology/Metabolism/Diabetes Mellitus, Oncology  Comments Off on Correlation-based Network Analysis of Cancer Metabolism: A New Systems Biology Approach in Metabolomics
Feb 062018
 

With the rise of systems biology as an approach in biochemistry research, using high throughput techniques such as mass spectrometry to generate metabolic profiles of cancer metabolism is becoming increasingly popular. There are examples of cancer metabolic profiling studies in the academic literature; however they are often only in journals specific to the metabolomics community. This book will be particularly useful for post-graduate students and post-doctoral researchers using this pioneering technique of network-based correlation analysis. The approach can be adapted to the analysis of any large scale metabolic profiling experiment to answer a range of biological questions in a range of species or for a range of diseases.

Obesity and Breast Cancer: The Role of Dysregulated Estrogen Metabolism

 Endocrinology/Metabolism/Diabetes Mellitus, Oncology  Comments Off on Obesity and Breast Cancer: The Role of Dysregulated Estrogen Metabolism
Feb 012018
 

 

Obesity is a risk factor for breast cancer in older women. A number of adipose-derived and obesity-related factors have been shown to affect tumour cell growth. These include adipokines, insulin, IGF-1 and oestrogens. The majority of obesity-related postmenopausal breast cancers are oestrogen-dependent. Since the ovaries no longer produce oestrogens after menopause, and that circulating levels are negligible, it is evident that it is the oestrogens produced locally within the breast adipose that are responsible for the increased growth of breast cancer cells. Aromatase is the enzyme that converts androgens into oestrogens and its regulation is dependent on the activity of a number of tissue-specific promoters. Targeting oestrogen biosynthesis in obesity may be useful for the prevention of breast cancer. Aromatase inhibitors are efficacious at treating postmenopausal breast cancer and recent studies suggest that they may also be useful in the prevention setting. However, these compounds inhibit the catalytic activity of aromatase and as a consequence lead to a number of undesirable side-effects, including arthralgia and possible cognitive defects due to inhibition of aromatase in the bone and brain, respectively. Novel therapies, such as those employed to treat obesity-associated disease, including anti-diabetics, may prove successful at inhibiting aromatase specifically within the breast. This SpringerBrief will explore all of these issues in depth and the authors are in a unique position to write about this topic, having extensive experience in the field of aromatase research.​
