The Blood Brain Barrier (BBB) (Topics in Medicinal Chemistry)

The Blood Brain Barrier (BBB) (Topics in Medicinal Chemistry) Lowest new price: $158.25
Lowest used price: $109.00
List price: $259.00

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.

Accurate Results in the Clinical Laboratory: A Guide to Error Detection and Correction

Accurate Results in the Clinical Laboratory: A Guide to Error Detection and Correction Lowest new price: $99.93
Lowest used price: $44.95
List price: $99.95
Brand: Brand: Elsevier

This practical, easy-to-use guide, named to Doody’s Core Titles 2013, addresses interference issues in all laboratory tests, including patient epigenetics, process of specimen collection, enzymes, biomarkers. Clinicians and laboratory scientists can therefore rely on one reference which speaks to both their needs of accurate specimen analysis and optimal patient care.

Erroneous hospital and pathology laboratory results can be confusing and problematic, especially in acute care situations. While some factors creating interference, can be identified in the laboratory, detecting many others is often dependent on clinical details unavailable to the laboratory scientists or pathologists. Therefore, clinicians must become proficient in identifying such erroneous reports, and working with pathologists and laboratory scientists so that they can understand the source of such interferences, correct the results, and then decide what course of action must be followed for proper patient management.

  • Named to Doody’s Core Titles 2013, a collection development tool for health sciences libraries of all sizes, by Doody Enterprises
  • Practical information for both clinicians and laboratory scientists, presented in the form of tables and charts for easy reference
  • Focus on range and sources of interferences rather than details of toxicologic mechanisms which are well covered in toxicology textbooks
  • Covers interferences across endocrine, oncology, hematology, immunohistochemistry, immunology, serology, microbiology, and molecular testing

The Matter Factory: A History of the Chemistry Laboratory

The Matter Factory: A History of the Chemistry Laboratory Lowest new price: $26.16
Lowest used price: $22.50
List price: $45.00
Author: Peter J. T. Morris

White coats, Bunsen burners, beakers, flasks, and pipettes—the furnishings of the chemistry laboratory are familiar to most of us from our school days, but just how did these items come to be the crucial tools of science? Examining the history of the laboratory, Peter J. T. Morris offers a unique way to look at the history of chemistry itself, showing how the development of the laboratory helped shape modern chemistry.
           
Chemists, Morris shows, are one of the leading drivers of innovation in laboratory design and technology. He tells of fascinating lineages of invention and innovation, for instance, how the introduction of coal gas into Robert Wilhelm Bunsen’s laboratory led to the eponymous burner, which in turn led to the development of atomic spectroscopy. Comparing laboratories across eras, from the furnace-centered labs that survived until the late eighteenth century to the cleanrooms of today, he shows how the overlooked aspects of science—the architectural design and innovative tools that have facilitated its practice—have had a profound impact on what science has been able to do and, ultimately, what we have been able to understand.

Nutritional Biochemistry, Second Edition

Nutritional Biochemistry, Second Edition Lowest new price: $79.85
Lowest used price: $32.61
List price: $131.00
Author: Tom Brody
Brand: Brand: Academic Press

Nutritional Biochemistry takes a scientific approach to nutrition. It covers not just "whats"--nutritional requirements--but why they are required for human health, by describing their function at the cellular and molecular level. Each case study either leads to a subsequent discovery or enables an understanding of the physiological mechanisms of action of various nutrition-related processes. The text is "picture-oriented" and the commentary is directed towards explaining graphs, figures, and tables.
Nutritional Biochemistry includes a discussion of relevant aspects of physiology, food chemistry, toxicology, pediatrics, and public health. Experimental techniques for nutritional science are emphasized, and primary data is included to help give students a feel for the nutrition literature. This "real-world" approach provides students with a realistic view of the basis for much of our understanding of nutritional biochemistry.

  • Integrates biochemistry and nutrition in a case-oriented method
  • Emphasizes a hands-on approach to learning - case histories and clinical and research data illustrate all major points
  • Places emphasis on metabolism - metabolic pathways, enzymology, nutrient requirements (including RDA values)
  • Reveals the benefits of the Mediterranean diet, the biochemistry of exercise, the cell signaling pathways, how nutrition can influence the development of cancer, and the anthropometry and genetics of obesity

Meyler's Side Effects of Herbal Medicines, named to Doody's Core Titles for 2013, is a derivatrive work based on the acclaimed Meyler’s Side Effect of Drugs, Fifteenth Edition. This book summarizes the adverse effects of a large range of herbal medicines and the active ingredients that they contain. It includes extensive lists of the families of plants that are used as herbal medicines, including the Latin names of genera and species as well as the common names of individual plants. It features not only herbal medicines but information on important compounds such as tropane alkaloids, cardiac glycosides, nicotine, and pyrolizidine alkaloids.

The book is divided into three separate sections:

  • Family – Each monograph is organized under a family of plants (for example, Liliaceae)
  • Genera – The various genera that are included under the family name are tabulated (for example, the family Liliaceae contains 94 genera)
  • Species – In each monograph, some species are dealt with separately (for example, in Liliaceae, four species are included under their Latin names and major common names)

Each monograph includes the following information:

  • Alternative common names
  • Active ingredients
  • Uses – both traditional and modern
  • Adverse effects
  • References

Drug names are designated by their recommended or proposed International Non-proprietary Names (rINN or pINN); when those are not available, clinical names or brand names are used.

The material is drawn from the fifteenth edition of the internationally renowned encyclopedia, Meyler’s Side Effects of Drugs, and the latest volumes in the companion series, Side Effects of Drugs Annuals.

This volume is critical for any health professional or homeopathic practitioner with an interest in herbal medicines.
