The Epidemiology of Diabetes Mellitus: An International Perspective

 Endocrinology/Metabolism/Diabetes Mellitus, Epidemiology  Comments Off on The Epidemiology of Diabetes Mellitus: An International Perspective
Apr 032019
 

This seminal work brings together, for the first time, information on international trends and data for diabetes mellitus. Diabetes is on the increase throughout both the developed and developing world. Currently there are approximately 150 million people with diabetes worldwide, mainly Type 2 diabetes, and it is possible that as many as half of the cases have not been diagnosed. These numbers are likely to increase over the next 25 years. This text takes an international look at the epidemiology of diabetes, focusing primarily on geographical aspects of the disease. Topics covered include:

Etiological factors and time trends Definitions and evidence for prevention Caucasian populations Non-Caucasian populations Associated risk factors and complications Implications The Epidemiology of Diabetes Mellitus: An International Perspective is essential reading for every diabetologist, clinical endocrinologist, epidemiologist and all the members of the diabetes specialist team.

Oxford Handbook of Epidemiology for Clinicians

 Epidemiology  Comments Off on Oxford Handbook of Epidemiology for Clinicians
Apr 022019
 

The Oxford Handbook of Epidemiology for Clinicians provides all the information required by students and junior doctors who need to understand and translate key epidemiological concepts into medical practice. Unlike standard textbooks in this area, the focus throughout is on clinical applications of epidemiological knowledge.
Divided into four sections, the handbook begins with the basics of epidemiology in the clinic, moving on to the theories behind evidence-based practice, discussions of optimum methods and studies, and then ends by looking at the epidemiology of common diseases. The material is presented in a logical manner, from problems to the most appropriate solutions or tools to be applied. Interesting topics such as controversies in prevention intervention encourage discussion and thought, and the authors pose sensible and important questions throughout. This handbook is a must for all junior doctors, medical students, and clinicians who need to apply epidemiological concepts to day-to-day practice.

Epidemiology and Geography: Principles, Methods and Tools of Spatial Analysis

 Epidemiology  Comments Off on Epidemiology and Geography: Principles, Methods and Tools of Spatial Analysis
Mar 312019
 

Localization is involved everywhere in epidemiology: health phenomena often involve spatial relationships among individuals and risk factors related to geography and environment. Therefore, the use of localization in the analysis and comprehension of health phenomena is essential. This book describes the objectives, principles, methods and tools of spatial analysis and geographic information systems applied to the field of health, and more specifically to the study of the spatial distribution of disease and health–environment relationships. It is a practical introduction to spatial and spatio-temporal analysis for epidemiology and health geography, and takes an educational approach illustrated with real-world examples.

Epidemiology and Geography presents a complete and straightforward overview of the use of spatial analysis in epidemiology for students, public health professionals, epidemiologists, health geographers and specialists in health–environment studies.

Contents

1. Methodological Context.
2. Spatial Analysis of Health Phenomena: General Principles.
3. Spatial Data in Health.
4. Cartographic Representations and Synthesis Tools.
5. Spatial Distribution Analysis.
6. Spatial Analysis of Risk.
7. Space–time Analyses and Modeling.

Epidemiology Kept Simple: An Introduction to Traditional and Modern Epidemiology, 3 edition

 Epidemiology  Comments Off on Epidemiology Kept Simple: An Introduction to Traditional and Modern Epidemiology, 3 edition
Mar 272019
 

Epidemiology Kept Simple introduces the epidemiological principles and methods that are increasingly important in the practice of medicine and public health. With minimum use of technical language it fully explains terminology, concepts, and techniques associated with traditional and modern epidemiology. Topics include disease causality, epidemiologic measures, descriptive epidemiology, study design, clinical and primary prevention trials, observational cohort studies, case-control studies, and the consideration of random and systematic error in studies of causal factors. Chapters on the infectious disease process, outbreak investigation, and screening for disease are also included. The latter chapters introduce more advanced biostatistical and epidemiologic techniques, such as survival analysis, Mantel-Haenszel techniques, and tests for interaction.

This third edition addresses all the requirements of the American Schools of Public Health (ASPH) Epidemiological Competencies, and provides enhanced clarity and
readability on this difficult subject. Updated with new practical exercises, case studies and real world examples, this title helps you develop the necessary tools to interpret epidemiological data and prepare for board exams, and now also includes review questions at the end of each chapter.

Epidemiology Kept Simple continues to provide an introductory guide to the use of epidemiological methods for graduate and undergraduate students studying public health, health education and nursing, and for all practicing health professionals seeking professional development.

Handbook of Epidemiology

 Epidemiology  Comments Off on Handbook of Epidemiology
Mar 012019
 

The Handbook of Epidemiology provides a comprehensive overview of the field and thus bridges the gap between standard textbooks of epidemiology and dispersed publications for specialists that have a narrowed focus on specific areas. It reviews the key issues and methodological approaches pertinent to the field for which the reader pursues an expatiated overview. It thus serves both as a first orientation for the interested reader and as a starting point for an in-depth study of a specific area as well as a quick reference and recapitulatory overview for the expert. The book includes topics that are usually missing in standard textbooks and that are only marginally represented in the specific literature as well as innovative areas, e.g. molecular epidemiology, ethical aspects, practical field work, health systems research, quality control, and good epidemiological practice. Each chapter is written by one or more leading scientists and represents the state-of-the-art knowledge.

Genetic and Molecular Epidemiology of Multiple Myeloma

 Epidemiology, Genetics  Comments Off on Genetic and Molecular Epidemiology of Multiple Myeloma
Feb 152019
 

Multiple myeloma is a plasma cell malignancy characterized by complex heterogenous cytogenetic abnormalities that accounts for 1.4% of all cancers, and approximately 10% of hematologic malignancies. The clinical manifestations of multiple myeloma include lytic bone lesions, cytopenia, hypercalcemia, renal dysfunction, hyperviscosity of the blood, immunodeficiency, and peripheral neuropathy. Based on the clinical and genetic data, probably all cases of multiple myeloma arise from an asymptomatic monoclonal gammopathy of unknown significance. The exact mechanism of the transition from MGUS to overt multiple myeloma is still not well understood. Recent oncogenomic studies have further advanced our understanding of the molecular pathogenesis of multiple myeloma. This book will give a comprehensive overview of the genetic and molecular epidemiology of multiple myeloma in order to get a more refined and conclusive understanding of this disease.
