Primary Ovarian Insufficiency: A Clinical Guide to Early Menopause


Presenting the most current and relevant information on the diagnosis and management of primary ovarian insufficiency, also known as premature ovarian failure (POI/POF), this book presents two equally important voices. The first is the scientific, evidence-based voice discussing the latest information on POI/POF in a concise and logical fashion: etiologies, symptoms, genetics, mechanisms, associated conditions, as well as psychological and lifestyle considerations. The second voice presents the first-person stories of affected women, who are often faced with a diagnosis of irreversible infertility at a very young age and who somehow learn to live with great uncertainty about their ability to create a family – a core identity issue for many women. It is thus not simply a clinical, case-based presentation, but a more collaborative effort between clinicians who are well-versed in the field and women who have POI/POF. Primary Ovarian Insufficiency: A Clinical Guide to Early Menopause will therefore be an excellent practical yet personal reference for OB/GYNs, reproductive medicine specialists, and any clinician, nurse or health care worker treating women living with POI/POF.

By (author): Karen E. Stine, Thomas M. Brown

Written by two experienced toxicology lecturers, Principles of Toxicology provides a broad-based yet in-depth introduction to this diverse subject. Comprehensive and easy-to-read, the book covers this broad and interdisciplinary field from the viewpoint of three different functional levels: molecular and cellular; physiological; and ecological and environmental. This revised second edition expands the coverage of the book while keeping the organizational format that made the first edition a bestseller. It also includes a series of brief case studies illustrating the application of toxicological principles to current issues of interest.

Each and every chapter has been revised, several have been significantly rewritten, and three are entirely new. This new edition retains the extensive cross-referencing system that links all sections and enhances the integration of material. It also includes an appendix of selected toxicants that describes chemical structure and category of use. These features combine to make finding specific information quick and easy. The highly readable format and uniform, consistent presentation of information will make this the most used reference on your shelf.

Drug Stereochemistry: Analytical Methods and Pharmacology, Third Edition (Drugs and the Pharmaceutical Sciences)


Drug Stereochemistry: Analytical Methods and Pharmacology, Third Edition covers all aspects of chiral drugs from academic, governmental, industrial, and clinical perspectives, reflecting the many advances in techniques and methodology.

Topics include:

  • The use of enzymes in the synthesis and resolution of enantiometrically pure compounds in drug discovery
  • How stereochemistry impacts decisions made in the absorption, distribution, metabolism, excretion, and toxicity (ADMET) stages of drug discovery
  • Pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics and the issues faced during the final stages of the drug development process
  • The impact of the International Conference on Harmonisation (ICH) on the use of single isomer drugs
  • Chiral switches
  • The concept of molecular chiral recognition and how it affects the separation and behavior of stereochemically pure drugs
  • Patent issues surrounding chiral switches and the marketing of single enantiomer switches

The book provides a solid background on stereochemistry, from its early history, including an overview of terms and concepts, to the current drug development process, legal and regulatory issues, and the new stereoisomeric drugs. It is a one-stop reference for pharmaceutical scientists and chemists working with chiral drug molecules.

346: Phosphoinositide 3-kinase in Health and Disease: Volume 1 (Current Topics in Microbiology and Immunology)


From humble beginnings over 25 years ago as a lipid kinase activity associated with certain oncoproteins, PI3K (phosphoinositide 3-kinase) has been catapulted to the forefront of drug development in cancer, immunity and thrombosis, with the first clinical trials of PI3K pathway inhibitors now in progress. Here we give a brief overview of some key discoveries in the PI3K area and their impact, and include thoughts on the current state of the field, and where it could go from here
