Internal Medicine: An Illustrated Radiological Guide


By (author): Jarrah Al-Tubaikh

This very well-received book, now in its second edition, equips the radiologist with the information needed in order to diagnose internal medicine disorders and their complications from the radiological perspective. It offers an easy-to-consult tool that documents the most common and most important radiological signs of a wide range of diseases, across diverse specialties, with the aid of an excellent gallery of images and illustrations. Compared with the first edition, numerous additions and updates have been made, with coverage of additional disorders and inclusion of many new images. Entirely new chapters focus on occupational medicine and toxicology imaging, chiropractic medicine, and energy and quantum medicine. Internal Medicine – An Illustrated Radiological Guide puts the radiologist in the internal medicine physician’s shoes. It teaches radiologists how to think in terms of disease progression and complications, explains where to look for and to image these complications, and identifies the best modalities for reaching a diagnosis. It will also benefit internal medicine physicians by clarifying the help that radiology can offer them and assisting in the choice of investigation for diagnostic confirmation.

Redox-Active Therapeutics (Oxidative Stress in Applied Basic Research and Clinical Practice)


This essential volume comprehensively discusses redox-active therapeutics, focusing particularly on their molecular design, mechanistic, pharmacological and medicinal aspects.  The first section of the book describes the basic aspects of the chemistry and biology of redox-active drugs and includes a brief overview of the redox-based pathways involved in cancer and the medical aspects of redox-active drugs, assuming little in the way of prior knowledge. Subsequent sections and chapters describe more specialized aspects of central nervous system injuries, neurodegenerative diseases, pain, radiation injury and radioprotection (such as of brain, lungs, head and neck and erectile function) and neglected diseases (e.g., leishmaniasis). It encompasses several major classes of redox-active experimental therapeutics, which include porphyrins, salens, nitrones, and most notably metal-containing (e.g., Mn, Fe, Cu, Zn, Sb) drugs as either single compounds or formulations with nanomaterials and quantum dots. Numerous illustrations, tables and figures enhance and complement the text; extensive references to relevant literature are also included.

 

Redox-Active Therapeutics is an invaluable addition to Springer’s Oxidative Stress in Applied Basic Research and Clinical Practice series.  It is essential reading for researchers, clinicians and graduate students interested in understanding and exploring the Redoxome?the organism redox network?as an emerging frontier in drug design, redox biology and medicine.

Plasma Cell Dyscrasias (Cancer Treatment and Research)


This book provides a concise overview of the state of the art in the biology and treatment of plasma cell malignancies, a heterogeneous group of diseases primarily characterized by the presence of clonal plasma cells within the bone marrow or extramedullary sites. The plasma cell dyscrasias investigated include monoclonal gammopathy of undetermined significance (MGUS), multiple myeloma, plasmacytoma, immunoglobulin deposition diseases (primary amyloidosis and systemic light and heavy chain deposition diseases), and Waldenström’s macroglobulinemia. In the case of multiple myeloma, the coverage ranges from genomic aberrations and microRNAs to treatment for different patient groups, upcoming novel therapies, immunotherapy, and transplantation. The book reflects the significant research advances achieved in this field during the past few years, which have enhanced our understanding of the molecular mechanisms responsible for the pathogenesis of plasma cell dyscrasias.

Handbook of Cystic Fibrosis


By (author): Amy G. Filbrun, Thomas Lahiri, Clement L. Ren

This concise manual provides clinicians and other related health care professionals with an essential reference tool to the background of cystic fibrosis, and the management and treatment of this disease. The latest guidelines are reviewed and current and emerging treatments are discussed in the latter chapters. Cystic fibrosis is an inherited condition where a mutation in the gene coding for the cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) causes loss of function. The dysfunction of CFTR results in the production of thick mucus in the lungs and digestive tract, causing pulmonary and gastrointestinal manifestations. The incidence of cystic fibrosis in Europe and the US ranges between 1 in 2,000 and 1 in 25,000.
