Central Regulation of Energy Metabolism With Special Reference To Circadian Rhythm

Central Regulation of Energy Metabolism With Special Reference To Circadian Rhythm Lowest new price: $112.21
Lowest used price: $45.97
List price: $310.00
Author: Katsuya Nagai
Brand: Brand: CRC Press

This excellent book describes the roles of the suprachiasmatic nucleus (SCN) of the hypothalamus as a regulatory center of homeostatic mechanism and a circadian oscillator in mammals, including humans. The authors emphasize two important points based on their findings: 1) SCN plays a critical role in central regulation of energy metabolism through which a constant supply of glucose to the central nervous system (CNS) is well maintained; and 2) neurons responsible for the regulation of energy metabolism are located in the ventrolateral part of the SCN and receive retinal neural inputs through both the retinohypothalamic tract and the geniculohypothalamic tract. The authors then discuss the evolutionary importance of these points to the survival of mammals on earth. Other topics examined include the involvement of light in the regulation of neural activity of the autonomic nervous system through the retina and SCN, in addition to the relation of the SCN with regulations of other autonomic nerve functions, such as blood pressure and body temperature.

Central Regulation of Energy Metabolism with Special Reference to Circadian Rhythm is important reading for researchers and students in neuroendocrinologists, neurobiologists, biochemists, endocrinologists, physiologists, chronobiologists, psychologists, pharmacologists, and others interested in the topic.

Principles of Corticosteroid Therapy (Hodder Arnold Publication)

Principles of Corticosteroid Therapy (Hodder Arnold Publication) Lowest new price: $52.89
Lowest used price: $9.17
List price: $98.50
Author: Andrew N. Lin

Principles of Corticosteroid Therapy is the first book ever to provide a thorough and systematic review of the clinical use of corticosteroids. This class of drug provides a potent anti-inflammatory and immunosuppressive action and is among the most widely used in medicine. However, these drugs have many serious side effects on many organ systems. Proper use requires a thorough understanding of their mechanism of action, clinical indications, and adverse effects.
This book is the major work on corticosteroids since they were developed and first used approximately 50 years ago. It outlines in detail the use of corticosteroids in diseases that affect each organ system, and follows with a thorough discussion of their side effects. It analyses the use of corticosteroids in pregnancy, neonatal period, childhood and adolescence, and covers special management issues such as pulse corticosteroid therapy, and medicolegal aspects. Principles of Corticosteroid Therapy will be of major interest to internists, family physicians, pediatricians, and all physicians who prescribe corticosteroids. Medical students will find it especially useful during their training in pharmacology and clinical medicine and it will be an indispensable text to residents in internal medicine and all its subspecialties. Written by internationally recognized clinicians in internal medicine, immunology, rheumatology, and other fields of medicine, Principles of Corticosteroid Therapy is the first comprehensive and authoritative text to discuss the clinical use of corticosteroids.

List price: $109.95
Author: John C. Stevenson
Brand: Brand: CRC Press

Though osteoporosis is the most common metabolic bone disease in the Western world, many women do not appreciate the way in which it can affect their lives or what they can do to prevent it. Thus, it is the duty of the healthcare professional to provide the current state of knowledge. With enhanced figures and updated text, An Atlas of Osteoporosis, Second Edition provides a detailed account of the advances that have occurred in osteoporosis since the publication of the acclaimed first edition. Featuring over 70 informative and detailed illustrations, many in color, this comprehensive atlas covers the bone structure, epidemiology, pathophysiology, biochemical changes, and the latest methods for the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of osteoporosis, such as HRT, selective estrogen receptor modulators, calcitonin, bisphosphonates, anabolic steroids, fluoride, vitamin D, calcium, and exercise. It devotes special attention to the most common and most important type of osteoporosis- postmenopausal osteoporosis.

STATE-OF-THE-ART TECHNIQUES

Now defined as a disease of low bone density, osteoporosis can be diagnosed through bone densitometry. However, many physicians are still wary of tests that they did not study in medical school or during their early training. This volume covers the available investigative procedures, including double and single X-ray absorptiometry, assessment by computed tomography, nuclear magnetic resonance scanning, neutron activation analysis, and ultrasonography. It places them in their clinical context, reviews the tests, and will enhance the comfort level of any practicing physician with this investigation. The text also provides images surrounding the techniques of bone densitometry that demonstrate not only the techniques, but also the output from the techniques. The illustrations provided in An Atlas of Osteoporosis allow you to give the patient a simple explanation about the bone density test, its meaning, its interpretation, and its clinical utility.
