Biochemistry of Oxidative Stress: Physiopathology and Clinical Aspects (Advances in Biochemistry in Health and Disease)


The strongest point of this book titled “Biochemistry of Oxidative Stress: Physiopathology and Clinical Aspects”, is that the academic and scientific background of the authors/editors guarantee the authorship of a book comprising all aspects of oxidative stress, ranging from very molecular aspects, to clinical application, including the antioxidant therapy. Of particular importance is the fact that the aforementioned aspects are described in the book in a general section and in three different and important pathologies, such as cardiovascular diseases, neurodegenerative diseases, and cancer. The importance of these pathologies lays in the fact that, taken separately or together, they represent by far the leading cause of death in the world. Finally, all the chapters have been written by highly recognized authorities in the field of their investigations. At least to our knowledge, this is the first book with this characteristics in the field of oxidative stress.

Atlas of Adult Autopsy Pathology


By (author): Julian Burton, Sarah Saunders, Stuart Hamilton

The Atlas of Adult Autopsy Pathology is a full-color atlas for those performing, or learning to perform, adult autopsies. It is arranged by organ systems and also includes chapters on external examination findings, the effect of decomposition, and histopathological findings, as well as procedures and devices one may encounter during autopsy.

The book includes a series of more than 700 color clinical images of adult autopsy pathology. It covers both diseases that are commonly seen as well as less common, or even rare, diseases. In some instances, a diagnosis may be made on the basis of the macroscopic appearance alone, while in others further investigation is required and appropriate guidance is provided.

Unlike other atlases, this book goes beyond simply providing a collection of images. It features concise guidance on how to interpret macroscopic findings and prompts when further considerations are useful. This atlas is designed to be a visual reference that can assist with rapid diagnosis of autopsy findings.

Comprehensive in its coverage with high-quality illustrations, this definitive atlas is an invaluable resource to trainees and consultant pathologists performing non-forensic autopsies. The book is also an important reference for anatomical pathology technicians, medico-legal specialists, and their officers.

Pathophysiology of Blood Disorders, Second Edition


By (author): Howard Franklin Bunn, Jon C. Aster

The acclaimed full-color review of the underlying principles of blood diseases and disorders – based on a Harvard Medical School hematology course

LANGE Pathophysiology of Blood Disorders, Second Edition is a well-illustrated, easy-to-absorb introduction to the physiological principles underlying the regulation and function of blood cells and hemostasis, as well as the pathophysiologic mechanisms responsible for the development of blood disorders. Featuring a strong emphasis on key principles, the book also covers diagnosis and management primarily within a framework of pathogenesis.

The organization and content of this book are based on a 3-week hematology course given to students in their second year at Harvard Medical School. All of the authors are lecturers in this course and many of the figures have been taken directly or adapted from their lectures.

FEATURES OF THE SECOND EDITION:
• NEW summary boxes with high yield points to remember
• All figures have been redrawn by a single artist for quality and consistency
• A more user-friendly presentation
• Each chapter includes learning objectives, and self-assessment questions with detailed explanations
• Numerous tables and diagrams encapsulate important information

Chikungunya Virus: Advances in Biology, Pathogenesis, and Treatment


This book describes the molecular biology, pathogenesis, epidemiology, and potential strategies for control of chikungunya virus (CHIKV) infection. It offers insight into the structure and functions of CHIKV proteins as they relate to host response, interaction with the arthropod vector, and vaccination. A detailed account of both the epidemiological outlook and the clinical syndrome of CHIKV infection is provided. The complex host-virus interaction and the signaling pathways that mediate such interactions are also covered. Throughout the book, graphics and charts are used to provide stimulating discussion on important findings in the field of chikungunyalogy. The chapters are written with a global perspective by experts of CHIKV from around the world. This project is especially significant given that CHIKV is a pathogen of worldwide public health concern. Although the presence of CHIKV infection is not global yet, worldwide dissemination is predicted in the future due largely to the lack of effective treatment/therapy, efficient control of transmission, and knowledge about mechanisms of pathogenesis. Additionally, globalization of CHIKV is predicated on its mode of dissemination (mosquito vector) and cross border travel and migration.

Understanding Human Anatomy and Pathology: An Evolutionary and Developmental Guide for Medical Students


By (author): Rui Diogo, Drew M. Noden, Christopher M. Smith, Julia Molnar, Julia C. Boughner, Claudia Alexandra Amorim Barrocas, Joana Araujo Bruno

Understanding Human Anatomy and Pathology: An Evolutionary and Developmental Guide for Medical Students provides medical students with a much easier and more comprehensive way to learn and understand the gross anatomy and variations of our body by combining, for the first time, state-of-the-art knowledge about human anatomy, evolution, development, and pathology in one book, synthesizing data that would normally be available for students only by consulting several books at a time.
        The book adds evolutionary, pathological, and developmental information in a way that reduces the difficulty and total time spent learning gross anatomy by making learning more logical and systematic, and understanding the ultimate reasons about why our body is as it is, and why we have certain pathologies and musculoskeletal injuries.
        The anatomical illustrations are particularly excellent, and clearly a major strength of the book. They were done by a unique team of four multi-awarded, young scientific illustrators, and are carefully selected to follow the style of those seen in human anatomical atlases, but are simpler in their overall configuration, making them easier to understand without overwhelming students with visual information.
         The book’s organization is also more versatile than most human anatomy texts so that students can refer to different sections according to their own learning styles, being able to learn either by focusing on different regions of the body or on different groups of structures/types of tissues.
         Because it is relatively short in length and easily transportable, students can take this invaluable book anywhere and use it to study and understand most of the structuresthey need to learn for any gross anatomy course. By providing, for the first time, an unique combination of evolutionary, comparative, anatomical, developmental and pathological information, the book will also be a unique source for evolutionary and developmental biologists, comparative anatomists, functional morphologists, biological anthropologists, pathologists, and medical researchers that are interested to understand the origin of the human body and its variations, as well as human congenital malformations.

Cytokines and Cytokine Receptors: Physiology and Pathological Disorders


By (author): Constantin A. Bona, Jean-Pierre Revillard

The field of cytokine research is expanding at a rapid pace Contributions from the major leading groups in the world on the structure and biological properties of cytokine and cytokine receptors, as well as integrated reviews on cytokines in various physiological and pathological conditions were presented in three issues of International Reviews of Immunology This collection of articles provided a unique source of information However, important discoveries are emerging very rapidly and some of the reviews written in 1997 are already outdated In this book, the editors assemble reviews that have been updated by their authors to include all the recent publications and unpublished data from the authors’ laboratories This volume should serve as an excellent reference source for all those concerned by the multiple faces of cytokines in basic research and in the clinic
