Prevention, diagnosis, and treatment are the watchwords in stroke research for basic neuroscientists and clinicians alike. This book, from the 22nd Princeton Conference on Cerebrovascular Disease, contains contributions from outstanding investigators on current topics in stroke research. The contents cover the current status and future directions of stroke pathophysiology, diagnosis, and treatment, with special emphasis on the molecular and cellular mechanisms of ischaemic cell death and repair, and clinical issues including imaging, risk factors, and therapeutic strategies in stroke. Available in both print and online formats, this survey of the basic and clinical science of stroke is an essential resource for all involved in advancing knowledge of cerebrovascular disease.

Cardiac Gap Junctions: Physiology, Regulation, Pathophysiology and Pharmacology

Cardiac Gap Junctions: Physiology, Regulation, Pathophysiology and Pharmacology Lowest new price: $45.00
Lowest used price: $65.25
List price: $152.00
Author: S. Dhein

The most important communication mechanism between cardiac cells is electrical transmission via low resistance pathways, the so-called gap junction channels. This book provides a comprehensive overview of what is known about cardiac gap junctions. An introduction into the various aspects of activation propagation and coupling in the heart is followed by a detailed description of the structure and diversity of gap junctions, including amino acid sequences and species variability. Subsequent chapters discuss their distribution, physiology and functions and the regulation of expression. The author then goes on to put these basic findings into a clinical context - the changes of gap junction distribution in the course of cardiac disease and their implications. A further chapter presents pharmacological approaches to the modulation of gap junction channel conductivity and outlines possible therapeutic strategies. The final part of the book describes the methods of investigation including double cell voltage clamp, immunohistochemistry, isolation procedures for gap junctions and dye coupling assays.


Radiology of Osteoporosis

Radiology of Osteoporosis Lowest new price: $16.50
Lowest used price: $20.44
List price: $99.00

Due to the aging population in the Western world, osteoporosis has become a major problem which is of interest to several medical disciplines: not only radiologists but also gynecologists, endocrinologists, rheumatologists, and orthopedic surgeons are involved in the management of this widespread condition. Functional imaging is becoming rapidly an important area of diagnostic radiology. Imaging of osteoporosis is another application of this recent addition to the armory of radiology. It is important that radiologists should be fully aware of the range of diagnostic modalities-conventional radiologic methods, dual X-ray absorptiometry, quantitative computed tomography, quantitative ultrasound, magnetic resonance imaging, etc. -that are now available for the diagnosis and the follow-up of osteoporosis, and know how to apply these sophisticated methods in daily clinical practice. Dr. S. Grampp is a radiologist with a longstanding interest in osteoporosis, and his previous publications on this condition are internationally known. He has been very successful in engaging several outstandingly qualified experts to contribute to the indi­ vidual chapters of this superb book, which provides a omprehensive c overview of our current knowledge of osteoporosis. I am confident that this volume will meet with great interest from radiologists and all other clinicians involved in the care of patients with osteoporosis and will encounter the same success as many previous volumes in this series.

Relaxin 2000: Proceedings of the Third International Conference on Relaxin & Related Peptides 22–27 October 2000, Broome, Australia

Relaxin 2000: Proceedings of the Third International Conference on Relaxin & Related Peptides 22–27 October 2000, Broome, Australia Lowest new price: $248.21
Lowest used price: $29.74
List price: $299.00

The first international forum on relaxin was a workshop held in Hawaii in 1980. This was followed by the Kroc Foundation conference in Santa Ynes, California in 1981 and then the First International Congress on the Hormone Relaxin in Florence in 1982. After a hiatus of several years, the Second International Congress on the Hormone Relaxin was held in Adelaide in 1994. Since that time, the enormous advances in molecular biology and protein chemistry have led to a stellar growth in relaxin research. Novel sites of action of the hormone have been elucidated, numerous new mammalian primary structures determined, more detailed mechanisms of action postulated, the control of relaxin secretion better understood, non-pregnant roles of the hormone identified, and, importantly, relaxin-related peptides (particularly INSL 3 and 5) identified and possible synergistic actions with relaxin proposed. A raft of novel clinical applications of relaxin has also been explored. Together, these exciting developments made the time ripe for a third international conference. We were therefore delighted to welcome many colleagues, old and new, at Relaxin 2000, the first international forum on relaxin and related peptides in the new Millennium. This conference, which we hope will now be held every four to five years, was held at the Cable Beach Inter-Continental Resort at the delightful old pearling town of Broome in the far north-west of Australia from 22-27 October, 2000.
