Modern Management of Uterine Fibroids

Uterine fibroids are very common in women of reproductive age and are mostly benign. However, they are often a cause of abnormal bleeding and, in severe cases, can cause infertility. This comprehensive guide reviews the clinical management of uterine fibroids, with a particular focus on practical surgical techniques. Engage with topics such as the anatomy of the pelvis, key theatre equipment and surgical treatments including hysteroscopic and laparoscopic techniques. Features also include debates around morcellation, and less invasive treatments such as uterine artery embolisation are also covered. An online video library of surgical procedures reinforces the practical techniques taught in the book and detailed colour images supplement the book’s thorough coverage of fibroid management. This makes Modern Management of Uterine Fibroids an essential resource for practicing gynaecologists and IVF specialists, as well as students.

Studies on Hepatic Disorders

This volume examines the current state of free radical biology as it impacts on hepatic disorders. It takes a thorough look at the relationship of oxidative stress in acute and chronic disease and takes into account factors like: redox biomarkers; antioxidant defense and protection; cell signaling, mutations; oxidative damage involving lipids, proteins and nucleic acids; membrane trafficking, inflammation, mitochondrial dysfunction, alterations in immunological function and toxicology and hypoxia. Studies on Hepatic Disorders, the latest volume in the Oxidative Stress in Basic Research and Clinical Practice series, provides a comprehensive look at liver topics. It is organized into four sections, each one thoroughly covering its topic and consisting of chapters written by recognized field leaders. Section One, covers basic principles including redox signaling, antioxidant defenses, nitric oxide, oxidative mechanisms in senescence and regeneration and the detection of oxidative stress. Section Two, explores Pathophysiology. It ranges from cell damage to fibrogenic response as broken out in chapters on hepatocellular injury, mitochondrial damage, unfolded protein response and autophagy, inflammation, ischemia-reperfusion injury and finally, fibrogenesis. Sections Three and Four cover specific diseases and cancer, respectively. Most of the chapters focus on diseases including acute failure, alcoholic disease, viral hepatitis, iron overload, autoimmune disease, Wilson’s disease and more, while the chapters on cancer round out the book.

An Evidence-Based Approach to Vitamins and Minerals: Health Benefits and Intake Recommendations, 2nd Edition

The latest and most accurate, peer-reviewed information on the role of vitamins and minerals in health and disease

An Evidence-Based Approach to Vitamins and Minerals: Health Benefits and Intake Recommendations is a trusted resource for the health professional who needs to interpret the explosion of studies on the role of micronutrients in health and disease and who is concerned about the proliferation of dietary supplements now available to the consumer.

This evidence-based reference, now in a second edition, presents the most current scientific, epidemiological and clinical research on the role of vitamins and minerals in preventing disease and promoting optimal health. Organized by micronutrient, the book covers biological function, deficiency, recommended daily allowance, role in disease prevention and treatment, sources, safety, and interactions with other micronutrients and drugs–all endorsed by the internationally acclaimed Linus Pauling Institute at Oregon State University.

Special Features:

Each chapter reviewed by a recognized expert in the field, who also served on the book’s Editorial Advisory Board
Contains the latest intake recommendations from the Linus Pauling Institute, as well as the Food and Nutrition Board of the Institute for Medicine
Provides a complete index by disease or disorder that facilitates easy location of condition-specific information found in multiple chapters
Extensively referenced, with hundreds of citations from the most current experimental, clinical and epidemiological studies
Includes useful appendices covering drug-nutrient interactions and nutrient-nutrient interactions, a glossary of terms, a units conversion table, and the Linus Pauling Institute “Prescription for Health,” summarizing its recommendations for a healthy diet, lifestyle, and supplement use

Taking the approach that micronutrients play a significant role not only in preventing deficiency disease, but in enhancing general health and averting chronic disease, this book is essential for physicians, nutritionists, and allied health professionals who need the most reliable, up-to-date information in this rapidly expanding field.

Intracellular Calcium, 2 Volume Set

Thousands of imaginative scientists, over more than a century, have revealed the fascinating story of intracellular calcium, through a pathway of ingenious invention and discovery.
Intracellular Calcium, the definitive book on this topic, reveals:
The pathway of discovery and invention of intracellular calcium over more than 100 years.
The evidence for intracellular calcium as a universal switch in all animal, plant, fungal and microbial cells
How the components required for calcium signalling are named and classified.
The ingenious technology, which has been developed to study intracellular calcium.
How calcium is regulated inside cells and how it works to trigger an event.
The role of intracellular calcium in disease, cell injury and cell death.
How many drugs work through the calcium signalling system.
How intracellular calcium is involved in the action of many natural toxins.
How the intracellular calcium signalling system has evolved over 4000 million years, showing why it was crucial to the origin of life.
A key principle presented throughout the book is the molecular variation upon which the intracellular calcium signalling system depends. This variation occurs within the same cell type and between cells with different functions, providing the invisible matrix upon which Darwin and Wallace’s Natural Selection depends.
Featuring more than 100 figures, including detailed chemical structures as well as pictures of key pioneers in the field, a bibliography of more than 1500 references, as well as detailed subject and organism indices, this definitive work provides a unique source of scholarship for teachers and researchers in the biomedical sciences and beyond.
