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.

This book on pediatric endocrinology covers interesting and yet often challenging cases among pediatric patients in a unique Question-Answer format. Simulating the bed-side case discussions during the ward rounds, one question logically leads to another, thereby generating curiosity and promoting evidence-based medicine. Taking the readers through the entire spectrum starting from etiology and pathophysiology to clinical presentation to management principles, each question addresses one key aspect of the disorder. Described in a very simple and lucid narrative, this book ensures sound conceptual understanding while covering each topic comprehensively. This volume covers important topics such as short stature, pubertal disorders, thyroid disorders, childhood Cushing syndrome, rickets and osteomalacia, disorder of sexual differentiation and diabetes in the young. Less common disorder such as multiple endocrine neoplasia has also been incorporated. These cases are not only seen by endocrinologists, but are also managed by paediatricians, internists, obstetricians and gynaecologists, orthopaedicians and surgeons.

Ma Vie en Noir: Fifty Years with Melatonin and the Stone of Madness (Springer Biographies)

By (author): Daniel Pedro Cardinali

I wrote this book urged by the overwhelming desire that arises towards the end of life to recapitulate the past. My goal was to summarize my experience of practicing science at the end of the 20th and early 21st centuries in Argentina, a country located far away from the world’s leading scientific centers. In the book, I summarize the intricacies of the pineal gland (“the stone of madness”) as historical, mystical and medical entity and its entry in contemporary medicine with the description of melatonin. I also reflect on how being associated with an unexplored subject at the beginning of his scientific career impacts the life of a scientist throughout their entire life. Today we know that in humans pineal melatonin is released every day late in the evening, and there is evidence that it is the trigger for the sleep process. But the most exciting aspect of melatonin is that it is a substance that is present in all living creatures, from unicellular organisms to plants and higher mammals, a fact that evinces its importance for life. Further, the neuroprotective action of melatonin promises to be crucial for the control of neurodegenerative diseases we face as a pandemic in this century. The discoverer of melatonin, Aaron Lerner, based its name on melano, the Greek word for black, because of its effect on the pigment cells of the skin. As in “La vie en rose“, the immortal Edith Piaf song written in 1946, my lifelong work with melatonin could well be called “Ma vie en noir“.
