How Medicines Are Born: The Imperfect Science of Drugs


By (author): Lisa Vozza, Maurizio D’Incalci

Translated by: Andreas Gescher(University of Leicester, UK)

This book is an excursion into the drug development process, from the initial conception in a chemical or molecular biology lab, via tests in isolated cells and animals, to the stage of clinical trials. The human body is a complex ecosystem where little is conclusively known in terms of its response to medication, for both sick and healthy individuals. The considerable degree of uncertainty inherent in health-related research can lead to approval of controversial medicines, particularly in high-stakes scenarios and medical crises. Real-life examples are drawn on here to explain the decision making processes behind the acceptance of new drugs, disproving misconceptions around medicines by delving into the history and current practice of the drug development process.

Originally written in Italian, How Medicines are Born helps patients, students, public health officials physicians, healthcare practitioners and biomedical scientists make informed decisions on the benefits and disadvantages of select medicine based on an understanding of the history of drug development.

Published in Italian (2014), M D’Incalci & L Vozza, Come Nascono le Medicine; La scienza imperfetta dei farmaci. Bologna: Zanichelli

Readership: Undergraduate, post-graduate and researchers in basic biomedical, biological and chemical disciplines; physicians; health service policy-makers and members of the general public.

Biomechanics of the Human Stomach


By (author): Roustem N. Miftahof

This book concerns the mathematical modeling and computer simulation of the human stomach. It follows the four modern P’s (prevention, prediction, personalization, and precision in medicine) approach in addressing the highly heterogeneous nature of processes underlying gastric motility disorders manifested as gastroparesis, functional dyspepsia, myenteric enteropathy etc.  The book comprehensively guides readers through the fundamental theoretical concepts to complex physiological models of the organ.  This requires a deep and thorough understanding of driving pathophysiological mechanisms as well as the collaborative effort of specialists working in fundamental and biological science. Such a multidisciplinary partnership is vital because it upholds gnostic capabilities and provides the exchange of thoughts and ideas thus offering broad perspectives into the evolution and management of diseases. The book is a valuable resource for applied mathematicians, computational biologists, bioengineers, physicians, physiologists and researchers working in various fields of biomedicine.

Advanced ICD-10 for Physicians Including Worker’s Compensation and Personal Injury


By (author): Eugene Fukumoto

ICD-10 is the 10th revision of the International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems (ICD), a medical classification list by the World Health Organization. It contains codes for diseases, signs and symptoms, abnormal findings, complaints, social circumstances, and external causes of injury of diseases. The code set allows more than 14,000 different codes and permits the tracking of many new diagnoses.

The U.S. has used ICD-10-CM (Clinical Modification) since October, 2015. This national variant of ICD-10 was provided by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and the National Center for Health Statistics, and the use of ICD-10-CM codes are now mandated for all inpatient medical reporting requirements.

This book is for physicians, practice managers and all others who need learn ICD-10. It’s designed for the clinician to learn how to put their diagnosis into a code and not rely on staff or computer software programs to decide it form them.

ICD-10 is a complex system of coding and Medicare and third party insurers have been lenient giving providers a year to get used to the coding system. As a result, physicians and their staff have become very complacent regarding proper coding. However, Medicare and third party insurers will soon begin to deny claims which are not coded correctly, which in turn will cost physician groups time and money.

This book focuses on Worker’s Compensation and Personal Injury, a very large segment of the healthcare industry and is a new area to ICD-10. The diagnosis coding for injuries is much different than for Medicare or group insurance and unless the physicians and their staff learn how to use it properly, they risk losing income for themselves and worse, they risk losing the case for the patient.

Lippincott Williams & Wilkins’ Comprehensive Medical Assisting


Features: Used Book in Good Condition
By (author): Judy Kronenberger PhD RN CMA(AAMA), Laura Durham BS CMA, Denise Woodson MA MT (ASCP)

In the healthcare job market, much has changed in the past few years. Qualified healthcare workers are in demand, and in no area is this so apparent as in medical assisting. The challenges for the programs that train these assistants are multi-faceted:

  • Guidelines, technologies, and the demands of this industry are changing fast. It is hard to keep up with what is new and expected when you have a full classroom.
  • Today’s student brings unique challenges to an educational environment. In addition to skills and tasks, you have to teach critical thinking, professionalism, and communication.
  • In a classroom of mixed generations, ability levels, and learning types, engaging all of the students is critical, but requires a multitude of options, which can be tough to plan for an already time-pressed instructor.

Because of our understanding of the above, Lippincott Williams & Wilkins’ Comprehensive Medical Assisting, Fourth Edition, is the medical assisting text designed to meet your challenges. In fact, this dynamic package of text and resources represent more than just a textbook, instead providing a suite of learning resources. This is the one text aimed at making sure that every graduate can quickly change their cap and gown for a set of scrubs and immediately be a vital member of the medical office. We do this by:

  • Providing the content in a way that speaks to students, with an engaging style that puts comprehension and understanding at the forefront of the experience.
  • Putting pedagogy to work in the text through key features like patient education boxes, competency checklists, procedure boxes, etc. We’ve emphasized not only the skill needed, but also continually draw the connection between what a student is learning and what they will need to do when they are working in a medical office.
  • Placing students in the real environment in which they will need to live! Our electronic EMR and PMS software package allows you to train students in a platform already in use in medical offices throughout the country. And to help you train, we provide case studies to help keep make the learning experience as real-world as possible.
  • Showing what we teach through skills videos to help definitively show the procedures and skills described so learners of all styles can better understand.

Perioperative Inflammation as Triggering Origin of Metastasis Development


The book will explain previously unconnected clinical data such as why mammography works better for women age 50-59 than it does for women age 40-49, why adjuvant chemotherapy works best for premenopausal patients with positive lymph nodes, and it may also explain the racial disparity in outcome. In particular, it points to the perioperative period when systemic inflammation persists for a week or so. This can lead to a variety of mechanisms whereby single cancer cells (perhaps from the marrow) begin division and angiogenesis of dormant avascular micrometastases occurs leading to early relapses.

With chapters presented from distinguished scientists and physicians in a variety of specialties that relate to and border the effects we present, this volume can be used as a reference for practicing physicians and as a jumping-off point for researchers to explore new therapeutic opportunities.
