|Photodynamic Inactivation of Microbial Pathogens: Medical and Environmental Applications (Comprehensive Series in Photochemical & Photobiological Sciences)
Lowest new price: $36.73
Lowest used price: $65.57
List price: $280.00
Photodynamic therapy (PDT) was discovered over one hundred years ago after observing the death of microorganisms upon exposure to dyes and light. It is the combination of non-toxic dyes and harmless visible light that, in the presence of oxygen, produce highly toxic reactive species. The principal medical application during the last century was in cancer therapy but, in these days of rising antibiotic resistance, PDT shows increasing promise as an alternative approach to treating infections. PDT has also been used in blood product sterilization, peridontology, acne reduction, and the treatment of viral lesions such as those caused by human papilloma virus. It may also have potential as an environmentally friendly pesticide. This is the first and only book to comprehensively cover the use of light and photosensitising agents for controlling microbial pathogens. It provides a comprehensive and up-to-date coverage of an emerging field. There are several chapters on the design of antimicrobial photosensitizers, their use to kill pathogenic organisms and their success in treating infections in animal models. It has long been known that gram-positive bacteria are highly susceptible to photoinactivation but the book also discusses means of widening the range of microorganisms that can be tackled by PDT. Edited by two pioneers in the application of PDT to medical and environmental issues, this book covers the basic science, translational research in animals, and the clinical applications in various medical specialities. It represents an indispensable resource for microbiologists and infectious disease doctors as well as dentists, dermatologists, gastroenterologists and transfusion specialists.
|Chemistry Experiments for Children (Dover Children's Science Books)
Lowest new price: $3.99
Lowest used price: $0.10
List price: $6.95
Author: Virginia L. Mullin
Brand: Virginia L Mullin
What better way is there to learn than by doing? This unusual book enables children to carry out more than 40 experiments and demonstrations, carefully planned to illustrate important principles of modern science. Clear step-by-step instructions, frequent diagrams, and clear statements of conclusions all enable the young student to carry through these experiments with minimal supervision, yet full success.
Before embarking on the world of discovery, the reader is introduced to the language of chemistry, including a list of the most common elements and their symbols. A chapter on setting up a laboratory, with a list of equipment and chemicals is also very helpful, as is a discussion of laboratory techniques.
The experiments focus on the chemicals in the air; the chemistry of water; solutions, diffusion, and osmosis; crystals; fire; acids, bases and salts; photography, and everyday things. The experiments included demonstrate how to grow a crystal garden, make oxygen five different ways, measure the proportion of oxygen in air, bleach cloth, and make soap and toothpaste. No special equipment is needed: apparatus can for the most part be made at home, and the materials are readily available, inexpensive household items, or are easily found at the pharmacy.
This volume offers upper grade school, junior high school, and high school students a very entertaining way to enrich their background in science and its applications. It is also a very valuable aid to parents, teachers, and others who wish to make clear, forceful demonstrations to children.

|RNA Therapeutics (Topics in Medicinal Chemistry)
Lowest new price: $259.00
Lowest used price: $303.57
List price: $309.00
Medicinal chemistry is both science and art. The science of medicinal chemistry offers mankind one of its best hopes for improving the quality of life. The art of medicinal chemistry continues to challenge its practitioners with the need for both intuition and experience to discover new drugs. Hence sharing the experience of drug research is uniquely beneficial to the field of medicinal chemistry. Drug research requires interdisciplinary team-work at the interface between chemistry, biology and medicine. Therefore, the topic-related series Topics in Medicinal Chemistry covers all relevant aspects of drug research, e.g. pathobiochemistry of diseases, identification and validation of (emerging) drug targets, structural biology, drugability of targets, drug design approaches, chemogenomics, synthetic chemistry including combinatorial methods, bioorganic chemistry, natural compounds, high-throughput screening, pharmacological in vitro and in vivo investigations, drug-receptor interactions on the molecular level, structure-activity relationships, drug absorption, distribution, metabolism, elimination, toxicology and pharmacogenomics. In general, special volumes are edited by well known guest editors.
|Pharmacology for Chemists: Drug Discovery in Context
Lowest new price: $87.03
Lowest used price: $131.32
List price: $122.00
Assuming little previous knowledge of biology, this book aids graduate chemists to close the gap in their knowledge of pharmacology and make the link between medicinal chemistry and the way in which drugs act on the body. The availability of receptor structures has revolutionized drug discovery and development necessitating an up-to-date source of information for chemists entering this new pharmacological world.
Chapters, written by experts with an appreciation of most graduate chemists’ knowledge, explain the history of pharmacology, the relationship between receptor structure and function and receptor pharmacology relevant to drug design. Importantly, as drugs are normally discovered in test rather than therapeutic systems, this text describes how pharmacology provides methods to characterize drug activity through scales that allow prediction of drug effect in all systems. Moreover, it outlines the relationship between drug distribution in the body and the action of drugs in particular organ systems relevant to disease. Readers will also find information on pharmacokinetics and drug metabolism, safety pharmacology and toxicology, clinical and regulatory pharmacology and the use of imaging techniques.
Carefully edited for relevance to the modern chemist, this unique textbook will be an essential resource for chemists planning to work in drug discovery, or postgraduate students and practicing chemists interested in expanding their pharmacology knowledge
