Antibacterial Chemotherapy: Theory, Problems, and Practice Illustrated Edition

Although antibiotics are among the most widely used pharmaceuticals, they are also often inappropriately and over-prescribed. Indeed there are increasing predictions that unless we moderate our use of these drugs, bacterial resistance will eventually render them useless. As there are no serious contenders to take the place of antibiotics, including a failure to find new classes of these drugs, it is essential for modern medicine that their efficacy is preserved.

Part of the Oxford Infectious Disease Library, this pocketbook is designed to help medical trainees, general prescribers, healthcare workers and students of all biological and medical sciences to understand how antibiotics work, to demonstrate where they might be most appropriate and to make clear the threat of antibiotic resistance. In particular, it will highlight the problems currently seen with bacteria such as MRSA and describe the circumstances leading to their persistence.

Gene Regulation and Therapeutics for Cancer

Differential gene regulation and targeted therapy are the critical aspects of several cancers. This book covers specific gene regulation and targeted therapies in different malignancies. It offers a comprehensive assessment of the transcriptional dysregulation in cancer, and considers some examples of transcriptional regulators as definitive oncogenic drivers in solid tumors, followed by a brief discussion of transcriptional effectors of the programs they drive, and discusses its specific targets. Most targeted therapeutics developed to date have been directed against a limited set of oncogenic drivers, exemplified by those encoding cell surface or cytoplasmic kinases that function in intracellular signaling cascades.

An Atlas of Gynecologic Oncology 1st Edition

While there are a plethora of practical texts relating to general gynecology, there are few specific to gynecological oncology. Taking a “cookbook” approach with clearly written and pictorial instructions, Atlas of Gynecologic Oncology: Investigation and Surgery describes and illustrates important procedures in the repertoire of a gynecological oncologist. International authorities contribute their expertise on a range of topics, including tumor markers, pain management, cross-sectional imaging, treatment of vascular defects, and more.

The book pulls together investigations performed by the authors and their colleagues from other disciplines. It covers computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, and stenting, which were previously accessible only in radiological or urological texts. The chapter on genetic and other screening methods for ovarian cancer provides insight into a rapidly expanding area within the subspecialty.

The text is deliberately short and the illustrations, all the work of one team of artists to maintain clarity and continuity of presentation, put the techniques at your fingertips. The radiological and endoscopic sections include photographs with line drawings to aid clarity. Clearly and concisely written, the book is a practical and easy-to-use guide to investigation and surgery.
