Basic Skills in Interpreting Laboratory Data, 6th Edition (May 2017 Release)

 Laboratory Medicine  Comments Off on Basic Skills in Interpreting Laboratory Data, 6th Edition (May 2017 Release)
Jun 152018
 

Basic Skills in Interpreting Laboratory Data continues to be the most popular teaching text on laboratory data for pharmacy students as well as the go-to reference for pharmacists in therapeutic practice. Now in its sixth edition, it has been expanded and updated to cover new drugs, research, and therapeutic approaches. The sixth edition is a comprehensive, in-depth guide to all aspects of lab work that apply to clinical practice. Written by 40 established clinicians and pharmacy faculty members and reviewed by additional experts, it is designed to make all information clear and quickly accessible. Minicases provide clinical scenarios for using tests and managing patients, and quickview charts throughout offer clear interpretations of lab results. New to this edition:* A new chapter on point-of-care testing.* New materials on male infertility workups.* Data on pharmacogenomics testing for neuropsychiatric drugs.* At least one new case and new learning points for almost all chapters.* New discussions in many chapters, including for C-reactive protein, antiglycan antibody and lactoferrin, antithroglobulin antibody, and cryoglobulin, and more.* 23 chapters are now divided into three sections: Basic Concepts and Test Interpretations, System Disorders and Diagnostic Tests, and Tests for Special Populations. Complex but critical skills are required for clinical pharmacists to effectively use lab data in screening for or diagnosing diseases and in monitoring the safety and effectiveness of treatment. As the only book of its kind specifically written for pharmacists by pharmacists, Basic Skills in Interpreting Laboratory Data makes it easier to make accurate and critical decisions based on laboratory data.

Important Correction Notice

The publishers wish to inform you of a correction in Chapter 6, page 110.

On page 110, Chapter 6, Interpretation of Serum Drug Concentrations, the equation before the heading “Valproic Acid” in the right column should appear as:

normalized PHT concentration = measured PHT concentration
+ (0.01 x VPA concentration x measured PHT concentration)

In the published book, the equation has boxes where multiplication symbols should appear.

Basic Serological Testing

 Laboratory Medicine  Comments Off on Basic Serological Testing
Jun 082018
 

This book discusses in detail various serological tests that are used to identify medical conditions and diseases, from a general overview of each test to the equipment and steps needed to carry them out. The book is aimed specifically at immunology students and professionals who may occasionally need to use these tests, and thus lack training and experience in performing them.
The book provides a brief overview of the immune system, including antibodies, antigens, and their interactions. The bulk of the book is comprised of 16 chapters that each explain different serological tests. These chapters start with a general introduction of the test or disease being detected, followed by the test principle, reagents required for the test, procedures and steps to perform the test, and, finally, result interpretation. Both test principles and result interpretation segments include illustrations to aid comprehension. In addition, the book also enables the reader to distinguish between positive and negative results in serological testing.

Mar 132018
 

This detailed book explores the concepts and applications of epigenome editing, as presented by leading scientists in the field. Beginning with some general and topical reviews, the collection continues by covering the design of DNA-binding devices, optimization of the effector domains, readout of epigenome marks, and approaches for delivery at the cellular and organismal level.
Written for the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology series, chapters include introductions to their respective topics, lists of the necessary materials and reagents, step-by-step, readily reproducible laboratory protocols, and tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls.
Authoritative and practical, Epigenome Editing: Methods and Protocols will be of great assistance to people new to the field but also to those already engaged, as epigenetic editing is still a relatively unexplored field with many issues to be resolved.

A Clinician’s Guide to Sperm DNA and Chromatin Damage

 Laboratory Medicine  Comments Off on A Clinician’s Guide to Sperm DNA and Chromatin Damage
Mar 112018
 

This comprehensive, up-to-date text, which brings together the key practical elements of the rapidly evolving field of sperm DNA and chromatin abnormalities, is divided thematically into five main sections. Part I discusses human sperm chromatin structure and nuclear architecture, while part II presents laboratory evaluation of sperm DNA damage, including SCSA, SCD, TUNEL and Comet assays, and cytochemical tests. Biological and clinical factors in the etiology of sperm DNA damage are discussed in part III, including oxidative stress, abortive apoptosis, cancer, and environmental and lifestyle factors.
Part IV presents clinical studies on the utility of sperm DNA damage tests, both with natural and ART-assisted pregnancies, and debates the clinical utility of such tests. Finally, part V discusses current treatment options, such as antioxidant therapy, varicocelectomy, advanced sperm processing techniques and the use of testicular sperm.

We are now beginning to better understand the unique organization of the sperm chromatin, as well as the nature and etiology of sperm DNA damage. Written and edited by worldwide experts in andrology, A Clinician’s Guide to Sperm DNA and Chromatin Damage is an excellent resource for reproductive medicine and REI specialists, urologists, reproductive biologists and any professional working with the infertile male.

Medical Parasitology: A Textbook

 Laboratory Medicine  Comments Off on Medical Parasitology: A Textbook
Feb 112018
 

 

This textbook will provide a systematic comprehension of the various medically important human parasites; their distribution, habitat, morphology and life cycle, pathogenesis and clinical features, laboratory diagnosis, treatment, prevention and control. The main emphasis is on the protozoan and helminthic diseases, also medical entomology covering vectors relevant to these diseases.
The book aims to promote an easy yet comprehensive way of learning parasitology. It attempts to break down the complexity of medical parasitology into parts that are easy to understand yet integrating the essential information of parasitic infections. The integration of knowledge of parasites will be achieved through student friendly illustrations, inclusion of a collection of recent case reports, examples of test questions and scenarios, and the images of human parasites. Essentially, it provides a “one-stop learning package” for medical parasitology.
