Rudolf Steiner initiated a new art of movement, which can be characterised as speech and music made visible. This concise but informative guide to eurythmy includes a brief survey of dance, from its origin in the ancient mysteries to its contemporary forms, placing Steiner’s ideas in their historical context.

It then goes on to explore the three main strands of eurythmy: as stage performance, in education, and in therapy, giving insightful examples of each.

The book has been revised and updated, and includes black and white photographs of performance and educational eurythmy.

Bioadhesives in Drug Delivery

 Miscellaneous  Comments Off on Bioadhesives in Drug Delivery
Jul 012020
 

Understanding the phenomenon of bioadhesion i.e. its theories or mechanism(s) are of critical importance in developing optimum bioadhesive polymers (used in bioadhesives). Such bioadhesive polymers are the key for exhibiting the process of bioadhesion, controlled/sustained release of drugs, and drug targeting. The use of bioadhesives restricts the delivery system to the site of interest and thus offers a useful and efficient technique for targeting a drug to the desired location for a prolonged duration. This book addresses the various relevant aspects of bioadhesives in drug delivery in an easily accessible and unified manner. The book containing 12 chapters written by eminent researchers from many parts of the globe is divided into three parts: Part 1: Fundamental Aspects; Part 2: Bioadhesive Formulations; Part 3: Drug Delivery Applications.
The topics covered include: Theories and mechanisms of bioadhesion; bioadhesive polymers for drug delivery applications; methods for characterization of bioadhesiveness of drug delivery systems; bioadhesive films and drug delivery applications; bioadhesive nanoparticles; and bioadhesive hydrogels and applications ocular biodhesive drug delivery systems; buccal bioadhesive drug delivery systems; gastrointestinal bioadhesive drug delivery systems ; nasal bioadhesive drug delivery systems; vaginal drug delivery systems; pulmonary bioadhesive drug delivery systems.

Osteoarthritis

 Miscellaneous  Comments Off on Osteoarthritis
Jul 012020
 

At a time when prevalence of osteoarthritis (failure of the joint) is increasing with an aging population it is timely to review the latest evidence and management strategies for optimal treatment of patients with this, the most common joint disease of mankind. A number of exciting new developments related to etiopathogesis and management make it highly desirable at this time to publish a fully comprehensive authoritative discussion of the risk factors, mechanisms of joint damage, clinical aspects, differential diagnosis and treatment of OA. A review of the current understanding of the management of this disorder and of the basic mechanisms involved provides the rationale for publication of this new fully-updated edition.

The book looks at the mechanisms for joint failure and how this may be due to abnormal cartilage or disease in underlying tissue. Significant coverage is given to exciting new evidence on disease-modifying drugs and methodologies for their outcomes evaluation. It is becoming increasingly reconised that optimal management of osteoarthritis requires a comprehensive program involving drugs and nonmedical components and, in some cases, surgery. Chapters on both non-surgical and surgical therapy are contained in the management section. The full coverage given in this book allows the physician to consider and choose the right blend of treatment for each patient from the range available whether physical, pharmacologic, surgical or supportive. The book is sympathetic to the significant differences that often exist between the perception of the patient and that of the physician regardign what’s important in treatment and coverage is therefore given to the outcome measures needed for optimal evaluation of both.

Highly illustrated in full colour throughout this definitive text is written principally for the clinical rheumatologists, although primary care physicians, orthopaedic surgeons, allied health professionals, basic researchers, members of the pharmaceutical industry who are involved in drug research and development, and regulatory staff should also find it useful.

Abbreviated MRI of the Breast: A Practical Guide

 Miscellaneous  Comments Off on Abbreviated MRI of the Breast: A Practical Guide
Jul 012020
 

Although mammography is the primary method used for breast cancer screening, screening mammography is limited especially in women with dense breasts, which includes nearly 50% of all women in the United States. Despite improvements such as digital mammography, computed aided detection, and digital breast tomosynthesis, breast cancer continues to be a leading cause of cancer-related death in women. The recent proliferation of screening breast ultrasound has led to increased health care costs and false positives, with only a slight improvement in breast cancer detection. It is time for a better test.

Molecular Diversity in Drug Design

 Miscellaneous  Comments Off on Molecular Diversity in Drug Design
Jun 292020
 

This book focuses on the theoretical problems associated with molecular diversity as it is being applied in the pharmaceutical industry. Therefore, this book deals with algorithms that are involved in understanding chemical space and selection of diverse sets of structures. The algorithms also deal with the problem of focused diversity where chemical libraries are being created within a structured physical volume. Diversity is necessarily connected to combinational chemistry, although this book is limited to the application of diversity methods to combinational chemistry and does not deal with synthetic methods. It is this focus on algorithms and strategies for exploiting molecular diversity that makes it different from books on combinational chemistry. The intended readership of the book falls into two categories: those actively engaged in applying molecular diversity in the chemical industry and those in academia who are developing strategies to embrace, understand and accept the many problems thrown up by this new research field of molecular diversity.

The Opposite of Certainty: Fear, Faith, and Life in Between

 Miscellaneous  Comments Off on The Opposite of Certainty: Fear, Faith, and Life in Between
Jun 262020
 

What happens when we can no longer pretend that the ground underfoot is bedrock and the sky above predictable?

All Janine Urbaniak Reid ever wanted was for everyone she loved to be okay so she might relax and maybe be happy. Her life strategy was simple: do everything right. This included trying to be the perfect mother to her three kids so they would never experience the kind of pain she pretended not to feel growing up. What she didn’t expect was the chaos of an out-of-control life that begins when her young son’s hand begins to shake.

The Opposite of Certainty is the story of Janine’s reluctant journey beyond easy answers and platitudes. She searches for a source of strength bigger than her circumstances, only to have her circumstances become even thornier with her own crisis. Drawn deeply and against her will into herself, and into the eternal questions we all ask, she discovers hidden reserves of strength, humor, and a no-matter-what faith that looks nothing like she thought it would.

Beautifully written and deeply hopeful, Janine shows us how we can come through impossible times transformed and yet more ourselves than we’ve ever allowed ourselves to be.
