Anxiety: A Very Short Introduction


By (author): Daniel Freeman, Jason Freeman

Are we born with our fears or do we learn them? Why do our fears persist? What purpose does anxiety serve? How common are anxiety disorders, and which treatments are most effective? What’s happening in our brain when we feel fear? This Very Short Introduction draws on the best scientific research to offer a highly accessible explanation of what anxiety is, why it is such a normal and vital part of our emotional life, and the key factors that cause it. Insights are drawn from psychology, neuroscience, genetics, epidemiology and clinical trials. Providing a fascinating illustration of the discussion are two interviews conducted specifically for the book, with the actor, writer and director Michael Palin and former England football manager Graham Taylor.

The Vaccine Court: The Dark Truth of America’s Vaccine Injury Compensation Program


By (author): Wayne Rohde

A hard look at the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program and the families desperately trying to navigate their way through it.

The Vaccine Court looks at the mysterious and often unknown world of the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (NVICP), the only recourse for seeking compensation for those who have been injured by a vaccine. The NVICP, better known as the ”Vaccine Court,” however, is not without controversy.

Established by Congress as a direct result of the passage of the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986, the NVICP was supposed to offer a no-fault alternative to the traditional injury claims filed in state or federal courts and was to provide quick, efficient, and fair compensation for those who have been injured by vaccines. The reality, however, is that many cases take several years or longer to complete and require tremendous commitment from families already pushed to the brink of bankruptcy caring for the vaccine-injured family member, only to discover that the end result is manipulated by the government in defense of the US vaccine policy.

Mr. Rohde looks into the inner workings of the US Federal Claims Court and the NVICP. He interviews families who have filed petitions and won compensation, families who have been denied compensation, and families still waiting for a decision. By highlighting the journeys of these families?their efforts to find attorneys willing to represent them, the filing of their petitions, and the subsequent mountain of paperwork, medical records, and other documents that span years?Mr. Rohde exposes the bitter truth behind the NVICP. Through his thoughtful interviews and fact-finding research, The Vaccine Court sheds light on how the NVICP has evolved into something far more treacherous than what Congress envisioned with the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act in 1986.

Green Coffee Bean Extract in Human Health


The role of green coffee bean (GCB) in human health is of emerging interest to the nutraceutical field, especially given its role in improving metabolic syndrome, including weight management, hypertension, diabetes, and neuroprotection. GCB extract contains a novel antioxidant known as chlorogenic acid (also caffeoylquinic acid), which has been shown to positively affect blood pressure, brain health, diabetes, and weight management. This book provides information on the diverse health benefits of green coffee bean extract, molecular mechanisms and signaling pathways, safety of GCB, dosage, and recommended usage. It focuses on the chemistry, biochemistry, pharmacology, and safety of GCB extract.

GCB extract has brought a remarkable revolution in the nutraceutical marketplace. However, some controversies have been demonstrated recently. This book presents the state-of-the-art research studies from eminent scientists around the world on the potential and diversified health benefits of GCB extracts, with particular emphasis placed on the importance to standardize the appropriate extraction technology, quality control and assurance, and broad spectrum safety studies and human clinical studies to substantiate the regulatory claims and position the product in the marketplace.

If you’ve just been diagnosed with celiac disease, you’re not alone: as many as 1 in 133 Americans have this autoimmune disorder characterized by an inability to digest gluten, a protein found in wheat and other grains. For ten years, Jules Shepard’s gastrointestinal symptoms went misdiagnosed. Finally diagnosed, she experienced a rollercoaster of emotions and illness the year following, as she discovered what she could and could not eat through trial and error.

Now, in The First Year®: Celiac Disease and Living Gluten-Free, Shepard explains everything you need to learn and do upon your or a family member’s diagnosis.


– How celiac disease affects your entire body

– Eating gluten-free (and avoiding hidden glutens)

– Keeping your kitchen safe from cross-contamination

– Can I drink alcohol?

– Celiac and fertility

– Finding support groups

– Parenting a child with celiac disease

– Dining out, traveling, and entertaining

Advances in Clincal Cognitive Science: Formal Modeling of Processess and Symptoms


Features: ISBN13: 9781591477846, Condition: USED – Very Good, Notes: 100% Satisfaction Guarantee. Tracking provided on most orders. Buy with Confidence! Millions of books sold!

Increasingly, contemporary quantitative cognitive science is appearing in mainstream clinical-science and clinical-practice journals, and many of the techniques under study hold promise for aiding individuals who have problems in living. The essays in this volume showcase fertile clinical applications of quantitative cognitive science in charting abnormalities among groups and individuals, and discuss ways in which readers can apply these techniques in their own research and potentially in clinical assessment and practice. The contributors are cognitive scientists who have formally modeled clinically relevant aspects of cognitive functioning or cognition-related symptoms among special populations, and clinical scientists who have adapted techniques of quantitative cognitive science to advance their clinical research and assessment.

Antibiotics: Challenges, Mechanisms, Opportunities


By (author): Christopher Walsh, Timothy Wencewicz

A chemocentric view of the molecular structures of antibiotics, their origins, actions, and major categories of resistance

Antibiotics: Challenges, Mechanisms, Opportunities focuses on antibiotics as small organic molecules, from both natural and synthetic sources. Understanding the chemical scaffold and functional group structures of the major classes of clinically useful antibiotics is critical to understanding how antibiotics interact selectively with bacterial targets.

This textbook details how classes of antibiotics interact with five known robust bacterial targets: cell wall assembly and maintenance, membrane integrity, protein synthesis, DNA and RNA information transfer, and the folate pathway to deoxythymidylate. It also addresses the universe of bacterial resistance, from the concept of the resistome to the three major mechanisms of resistance: antibiotic destruction, antibiotic active efflux, and alteration of antibiotic targets. Antibiotics also covers the biosynthetic machinery for the major classes of natural product antibiotics.

Authors Christopher Walsh and Timothy Wencewicz provide compelling answers to these questions:

  • What are antibiotics?
  • Where do antibiotics come from?
  • How do antibiotics work?
  • Why do antibiotics stop working?
  • How should our limited inventory of effective antibiotics be addressed?

Antibiotics is a textbook for graduate courses in chemical biology, pharmacology, medicinal chemistry, and microbiology and biochemistry courses. It is also a valuable reference for microbiologists, biological and natural product chemists, pharmacologists, and research and development scientists.
