Quantitative Drug Design: A Critical Introduction, Second Edition

Since the publication of the first edition, the field has changed dramatically. Scientists can now explicitly consider 3D features in quantitative structure-activity relationship (QSAR) studies and often have the 3D structure of the macromolecular target to guide the 3D QSAR. Improvements in computer hardware and software have also made the methods more accessible to scientists. Taking these developments into account, Quantitative Drug Design: A Critical Introduction, Second Edition shows scientists how to apply QSAR techniques at a state-of-the-art level. New to the Second Edition A new chapter on methods that identify the 3D conformations to use for 3D QSAR New discussions on partial least squares, multidimensional scaling, clustering, support vector machines, kNN potency prediction, and recursive partitioning Expanded case studies that include the results of data that has been re-analyzed using newer methods A new case study on the discovery of novel dopaminergics with pharmacophore mapping and CoMFA A new case study on the application of CoMFA to series in which the 3D structure of the ligand-protein complex is known Based on the author’s four decades of experience in all areas of ligand-based computer-assisted drug design, this invaluable book describes how to transform ligand structure-activity relationships into models that predict the potency or activity/inactivity of new molecules. It will help you avoid traps when dealing with quantitative drug design.

Heart Rate Slowing by If Current Inhibition (Advances in Cardiology)

This book unfolds the history of the discovery of the transmembrane channel which is responsible for the ‘funny’ or If current, the primary modulator of heart rate. Inhibition of this current leads to slowing of the heart rate, which is an important component of the successful management of angina pectoris. Recently, Ivabradine, a specific and selective inhibitor of the If current, has been developed as an antianginal agent which has been shown to be at least as effective as both beta-blockers and calcium channel blockers for the treatment of angina. The development, efficacy and complications of this therapy are discussed in detail in this book. Furthermore, the clinical benefits from heart rate reduction in patients with coronary artery disease and heart failure and in patients after myocardial infarction are examined. Whether a lower heart rate per sec will prolong life is not yet known, but it may offer a new and important life-saving strategy. The current data presented in this volume will be appreciated by cardiologists and general physicians interested in the modern management of angina pectoris and by electrophysiologists and physiologists who would like to understand the importance of heart rate and its regulation.

Surgical Intensive Care Medicine, Third Edition

Review

“This is the third edition of a comprehensive book on critical care issues pertinent to the surgical patient. … The audience most likely to benefit is senior trainees or junior faculty members seeking one of the reviews in this book. … Chapters are clearly written and reference lists have been updated to reflect citations dating to within two years of publication.” (David J. Dries, Doody’s Book Reviews, November, 2016)

From the Back Cover

This third edition text has been largely rewritten to include the many important advances that have been made and the controversies that have arisen in the past years. New topics have been added including Oxygen Transport, Tissue Oxygenation Evaluation, Echocardiography in the Critically Ill, Bedside Ultrasonography, Critical Care Issues in Oncological Surgery Patients, Long-Term Outcome after Intensive Care, Therapeutic Hypothermia, Delirium, and Post-Operative Gastrointestinal Dysfunction. Chapters are written by high-quality contributors, many of whom are nationally and internationally recognized researchers, speakers, and practitioners in Critical Care Medicine. Another important feature of this edition is the geographical diversity of its authors, including notable contributions from colleagues in Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Denmark, France, Germany, Norway, Portugal, Sweden, and the United Kingdom.

Surgical Intensive Care Medicine, Third Edition provides a comprehensive, state-of-the art review of the field, and will serve as a valuable resource for medical students, residents, critical care fellows in training, surgeons, anesthesiologists and physicians caring for the critically ill.

Hutchison’s Clinical Methods: An Integrated Approach to Clinical Practice – 24th Edition (June 2017 Release)

Hutchison’s Clinical Methods, first published more than a century ago, is the classic textbook on clinical skills. It provides an outstanding source of learning and reference for undergraduate medical students and postgraduate doctors. It seeks to teach an integrated approach to clinical practice, so that new methods and investigations are grafted onto established patterns of clinical practice, rather than added on as something extra. The text is organised so that both system-related and problem-oriented chapters are included. Particular emphasis is placed on the importance of the doctor-patient relationship, the essential skills needed for clinical examination, and for planning the appropriate choice of investigations in diagnosis and management. Hutchison’s Clinical Methods is an invaluable resource for all those learning and training in medicine and is an essential adjunct to a standard textbook of medicine, surgery or other specialty.

  • The book provides a comprehensive account of the traditional methods of patient history-taking and examination but is updated with a full account of the role of modern investigative techniques.
  • This is a book for students of all ages and all degrees of experience.
    • This established textbook of clinical methods has been thoroughly reviewed by an international group of students and trainee doctors to ensure the text concentrates on the basic principles of history and examination in all the various clinical settings which medical students need to master.
    • The global perspective of the book has been enhanced with a new International Advisory Board recruited from South Asia and the Middle East.

Anterior Segment Optical Coherence Tomography

High-speed anterior segment optical coherence tomography (OCT) offers a non-contact method for high resolution cross-sectional and three-dimensional imaging of the cornea and the anterior segment of the eye. As the first text completely devoted to this topic, Anterior Segment Optical Coherence Tomography comprehensively explains both the scientific principles and the clinical applications of this exciting and advancing technology.

Anterior Segment Optical Coherence Tomography enhances surgical planning and postoperative care for a variety of anterior segment applications by expertly explaining how abnormalities in the anterior chamber angle, cornea, iris, and lens can be identified and evaluated using the Visante OCT™.

Inside Anterior Segment Optical Coherence Tomography, Dr. Roger Steinert and Dr. David Huang, along with 22 of the field’s leading professionals, provide a wealth of useful clinical and physiological material about this new diagnostic imaging technique. Valuable images are included to assist in the pre- and postoperative assessment of various anterior segment disorders. Additionally, this unique resource contains detailed information on biometric measurements to enhance diagnostic capability.

On the leading edge of anterior segment imaging:
• Mapping of corneal thickness and keratoconus evaluation
• Measurement of LASIK flap and stromal bed thickness
• Visualization and measurement of anterior chamber angle and diagnosis of narrow angle glaucoma
• Measuring the dimensions of the anterior chamber and assessing the fit of intraocular lens implants
• Visualizing and measuring the results of corneal implants and lamellar procedures
• Imaging through corneal opacity to see internal eye structures

With the increase in popularity of anterior chamber imaging, and anterior segment OCT proving to be the best tool for high resolution biometry, Anterior Segment Optical Coherence Tomography is a must-have for anterior segment, refractive, cornea, and glaucoma surgeons.
