The Reproductive System (Human Body (Rosen Educational Publishing))


The conception of human life and the propagation of the species has long been a subject of curiosity in all civilizations. Although much is now known about the biology of reproduction, a great deal remains to be discovered about the diseases and disorders that can damage the reproductive system. Ethical concerns surrounding the issues of birth control and abortion have also provoked much discussion in recent times. This comprehensive narrative details both the biological process of procreation and the often divisive debates on how best to approach matters related to the human body.

Oxidative Stress in Human Reproduction: Shedding Light on a Complicated Phenomenon (Springerbriefs in Reproductive Biology)


This book discusses the role of oxidative stress in the reproductive system. The book reviews endogenous sources, methods of determining its levels in body fluid/tissues, the physiological roles of ROS, as well as its negative effects on the human reproductive processes. Also discussed are multiple extrinsic factors that could induce oxidative stress in the reproductive system. This volume covers various clinical pathologies related to the reproductive system that arise from or produce oxidative stress, both in the male and female. The use of antioxidants as a therapeutic measure to keep ROS levels in check are highlighted, describing the outcome of various clinical studies involving antioxidant supplementation in infertile patients. Infertility is a global disease that affects 15-25% of all couples, and oxidative stress arising from a multitude of sources has been implicated as one of the major contributing factors to the decline in human fertility. As such, this book provides an up-to-date review on the significance of ROS in human reproduction.

Respiratory Treatment and Prevention (Advances in Experimental Medicine and Biology)


The goal of this book is to further insight into the challenges related to respiratory health. Medical experts present their lines of scientific investigations on how to contain the disease, care for patients, and use preventive measures, with a focus on pulmonary-related disorders. Progress in the diagnostics and treatment of major infectious diseases affecting humanity such as tuberculosis, malaria, fungal and viral contagions is tackled. Other chapters provide some background information on the mechanisms and prevention of non-communicable diseases. New aspects of the etiology of sarcoidosis, air pollution-related lung cancer, and sleep disordered breathing are presented. Preventive measures of health in general and respiratory health in particular cannot do without a reminder of cigarette smoke avoidance and the respiratory aftermath of the smoking habit. The book presents scientific evidence-based practice knowledge. It is intended for healthcare professionals, specifically pulmonary specialists, primary care physicians, and all scientifically-minded individuals involved in the care of patients.

The Role of Heat Shock Proteins in Reproductive System Development and Function (Advances in Anatomy, Embryology and Cell Biology)


Due to the paucity of reviews on this subject, this volume aims to be timely and promote additional basic and translational research on these proteins in reproductive system development and function within the fields of Anatomy, Embryology and Cell Biology. The breadth of the work being conducted within Reproduction is exemplified by the contributors to this series who will provide reviews on: Grp78 roles in female reproduction, small heat shock proteins/co-chaperones as players in uterine smooth muscle function, the role of heat shock proteins in sperm function and maternal contribution to oogenesis and early embryogenesis, heat shock factors and testes development, HSP90 in ovarian biology and pathology, and the role of HSP70 in regulation of autophagy in pregnancy and parturition.

Developmental and Reproductive Toxicology: A Practical Approach, Third Edition


The purpose of this third edition of Developmental and Reproductive Toxicology is to provide a practical guide to developmental and reproductive toxicology in a regulatory environment. In addition to a comprehensive update of current chapters, the third edition been revised to reflect recent changes in the field. It contains new chapters that reflect emerging topics of interest, including testing of biologics (including vaccines), nonhuman primates as nonclinical models, developmental immunotoxicity testing, in vitro assays (such as use of zebrafish and stem cells, as well as high throughput screening), in silico systems modelling, evaluating mechanisms of reproductive toxicity, in-depth coverage of neurobehavioral testing, and testing under the EU’s REACH regulations, as well as updated chapters on nonclinical juvenile toxicity testing, endocrine disruptor screening, and on functional and computational genomics.

The study of hazard and risk associated with exposure to toxicants during prenatal development has been expanded in recent years to include effects on development until the time of puberty. Concern over the adverse effects of chemical or physical agents on the reproductive processes of both sexes has increased, and progress has been made in identifying the causes and mechanisms eliciting congenital defects and determining the genetic, epigenetic, and environmental factors involved. This book provides up-to-date guidance on the use and interpretation of the newest research techniques in developmental and reproductive toxicology, as well as the more traditional approaches.

Developmental and Reproductive Toxicology, Third Edition:

  • Contains valuable insights gained from hands-on experience, together with a critical evaluation of current testing strategies.
  • Includes guidance for the design, conduct, and interpretation of tests in all areas of developmental and reproductive toxicity.
  • Contains reprinted guidelines from major regulatory agencies, as well as terminology for description of developmental abnormalities in laboratory animals, for easy reference.
  • Provides guidance for planning and conducting preclinical toxicity studies and follow-up studies, and interpreting their results in a regulatory environment.

This book continues to be the ideal practical reference for developmental and reproductive toxicologists who perform research in industry, government, and academia and for anyone who intends to enter these research areas.
