Essential Guide to Blood Groups is the only pocket sized guide to provide essential information on blood group systems. The main aim of the blood transfusion laboratory is to promote safe blood transfusion. The avoidance of errors, from sample receipt and laboratory testing through to the release of blood for transfusion, is of paramount importance. Knowledge of immunohaematology theory and its application to blood transfusion together with the principles of good laboratory practice are essential.

This handbook helps to address these important issues and also covers:
• the serology, inheritance, biochemistry, and molecular genetics of the most important blood group systems
• their clinical importance
• techniques used in blood grouping, troubleshooting, and quality assurance

This unique and practical guide:
• is written by leaders in the field, including the author of the best seller Human Blood Groups
• provides the basic knowledge of blood groups needed by all those working in the important fields of transfusion medicine and science.
• helps in resolving commonly encountered problems

Essential Guide to Blood Groups will be valuable for undergraduate medical laboratory scientists and for postgraduate scientists and medical practitioners training to specialise in transfusion and transplantation. As a pocket edition, it will also be a useful addition to other reference works on blood groups for quick access to information for medical practitioners and in red cell immunohaematology laboratories.

Cosmeceuticals are the latest additions to the health industry and have an ever-expanding market. They are considered to be a marriage between cosmetics and drugs and are defined as preparations applied on the body that may modify the physiological functions of the skin. However, as more cosmeceuticals are being launched in the market and more types of drugs are incorporated into the formulation, the composition of cosmeceuticals is becoming more complex. Handbook of Cosmeceutical Excipients and their Safeties summarises the current evidence relating to cosmeceuticals’ side effects and highlights the important information that practitioners and consumers need to know, as well as ways to avoid the adverse effects of the excipients. Handbook of Cosmeceutical Excipients and their Safeties includes chapters covering topics such as the history of cosmeceuticals and the laws that regulate them, skin permeation, carcinogenicity as a systemic adverse effect and dermatitis as a topical adverse effect. It concludes with an appendix that gives brief information on the potency and permeability of common ingredients in cosmeceuticals. The appendix aims to highlight the maximum allowable quantity of each ingredient to ensure product safety for consumers. The appendix was prepared by compiling the ingredients of 257 products containing more than 500 compounds, collected from a hospital pharmacy in Singapore.

  • Focuses on the practical aspect of adverse effects from cosmeceuticals
  • Explains the regulatory framework of cosmeceuticals
  • Gives an idea of how excipients and drugs in cosmeceuticals enter the skin and methods of control

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.
