Principles of Metabolic Control in Mammalian Systems

Principles of Metabolic Control in Mammalian Systems Lowest new price: $120.59
Lowest used price: $15.51
List price: $139.99
Author: Herman

In this work we present the basic principles of metabolic control which we hope will serve as a foundation for the vast array of factual matter which the biochemist and the physician engaged in metabolic research must accumulate. Accordingly, we attempt to set forth these principles, along with sufficient explanation, so that the reader may apply them to the ever-expanding literature of biochemistry. If we are successful, this will provide a theoretical approach which can be applied to any given set of metabolic reactions. It is impossible to enumerate each and every biochemical reaction and pathway since such a work would be too unwieldy for efficient use. Rather, we hope our presentation of the principles of metabolic control will be sufficiently basic to be of lasting usefulness no matter how detailed biochemistry may become. We would like to be able to con­ dense biochemistry into a theoretical biology that will not only allow for the general treatment of any given reaction but will enable predic­ tions to be made as to the existence of necessary pathways and the con­ sequences of altered control. Such is not possible today, but this may be accomplished in the future. We believe it is now possible to institute the beginnings of such a theoretical biology.


Handbook of Clinical Laboratory Testing During Pregnancy (Current Clinical Pathology)

Handbook of Clinical Laboratory Testing During Pregnancy (Current Clinical Pathology) Lowest new price: $162.38
Lowest used price: $80.00
List price: $279.99
Brand: Ann M Gronowski

Practicing specialists in pathology, laboratory medicine, and obstetrics comprehensively summarize the latest scientific findings and their experiences in the use and interpretation of laboratory testing in patients who are pregnant or experiencing recurrent pregnancy loss. Topics of interest include the effects of normal physiological changes on test results, test selection for diagnosis, changes in reference ranges, monitoring the pregnant patient, new technologies, and the limitations of laboratory testing. The authors not only clearly explain currently used test methods and technologies for the nontechnical reader, but also provide comprehensive details for laboratory professionals. The comprehensive appendix that compiles published normal reference ranges by first, second, and third trimester consttitutes an excellent resource for professionals caring for pregnant women.

Interpretation of Semen Analysis Results: A Practical Guide

Interpretation of Semen Analysis Results: A Practical Guide Lowest new price: $57.93
Lowest used price: $18.29
List price: $94.00
Author: Rajasingam S. Jeyendran
Brand: Brand: Cambridge University Press

This practical and concise guide provides a step-by-step approach to every aspect of the interpretation of semen analysis results. While other books focus on basic semen analysis protocol and techniques, few books then go on to actually interpret these results and provide useful guidance on the significance of different results for infertility assessment. This guide takes a systematic, hands-on approach to identification of the ranges of abnormality that contribute to male subfertility. It also defines basic concepts, provides clinically essential reference values, and elucidates the often subtle relationships among many sperm characteristics. Once conclusions are reached, the guide offers recommendations for appropriate referral and additional options. Inclusion of vignettes from a wide range of real-life case reports based on the author's own experiences help to illustrate key points. This practical guide is an invaluable resource for all clinicians, scientists, and laboratory professionals working with infertile patients.

Lowest used price: $8.49
List price: $51.95
Author: Martin Crook

Whether you are following an integrated or a more traditional medical course, you may find chemical pathology and metabolic medicine constitutes one of the more difficult subjects to grasp. What you need is a textbook that not only explains the biochemical underpinnings of metabolic medicine, but one that also integrates laboratory findings with clincal practice. Look no further...
Clinical Chemistry and Metabolic Medicine is entirely updated to reflect the new curriculum and the changes in our understanding of clinical biochemistry. The text is revised by an author with years of teaching experience who has carefully retained the strengh of Zilva and Pannall's classic textbook - readability, a firm basis in the underlying science, and a clear focus on clinical relevance.
The seventh edition of Clinical Chemistry and Metabolic Medicine re-establishes the title as the premier textbook in the field, and is essential reading for all medical students through to postgraduate trainees in medicine and candidates for the MRCP and MRCPath. General practitioners and hospital doctors may also find this text helpful in the diagnosis and management of patients with metabolic disorders.

Living Without Oxygen: Closed and Open Systems in Hypoxia Tolerance

Living Without Oxygen: Closed and Open Systems in Hypoxia Tolerance Lowest new price: $99.00
Lowest used price: $25.23
List price: $41.50
Author: Peter W. Hochachka

Innumerable clinical problems have as their basis some derangement in oxygen-dependent metabolism. To explore mechanisms of adjusting to oxygen limitation, Living without Oxygen presents a bestiary of exotic anaerobes that illuminate elements of metabolic biochemistry only dimly seen in studies using standard experimental animals. With their exaggerated anaerobic capabilities, Hochachka's diving mammals, airbreathing fishes, and hypoxia-adapted lower vertebrates allow a detailed assessment of what can and what cannot be adjusted in the process of extending hypoxia tolerance. The book places the enzymatic and biochemical machinery firmly in the biological context and assumes only a modest familiarity with bioenergetics and metabolic biochemistry. The author's clear prose should make this technical presentation pleasantly unintimidating for any physiologist, biochemist, or clinical investigator. The insights of his unique approach make Living without Oxygen essential reading.


Disorders of Lipid Metabolism

Disorders of Lipid Metabolism Lowest new price: $74.00
Lowest used price: $4.28
List price: $99.00
Author: G.V. Marinetti

For the past 30 years I have been teaching lipid biochemistry to'inedical students, graduate students, and undergraduate students. The major topics covered in my courses were fatty acids, prostaglandins, leukotrienes, phospholipids, glyco­ lipids, triacylglycerols, cholesterol, bile acids, and plasma lipoproteins. Empha­ sis was placed on the regulation and disorders of lipid metabolism. The latter included hyperlipidemias, atherosclerosis, and alcohol-induced liver damage. In this volume, I have chosen to focus on the disorders of lipid metabolism at a level appropriate both for medical students and for graduate and undergradu­ ate students majoring in the biological sciences. The biochemistry, nutrition, genetics, and cell biology aspects of lipids and lipid metabolism will be covered as they relate to lipid disorders. I am not aware of any textbook that integrates the disorders of lipid metabolism in this manner. Chapter 1 includes a brief discussion of the basic structures, properties, and metabolism of lipids. This chapter is not very detailed, since the material covered is available in basic textbooks on biochemistry. The major fpcus of this volume is the various lipid disorders, with emphasis on polyunsaturated fatty acids, the molecular biology and pathogenesis of the hyperlipidemias, dietary and drug therapy for the hyperlipidemias, and alcohol-induced liver damage. The material presented has been obtained from several textbooks on biochemistry and from a variety of recent articles in the scientific literature.
