Gender Differences in Metabolism: Practical and Nutritional Implications (Nutrition in Exercise & Sport)

Gender Differences in Metabolism: Practical and Nutritional Implications (Nutrition in Exercise & Sport) Lowest new price: $50.00
Lowest used price: $6.87
List price: $179.95
Brand: CRC Press

Gender Differences in Metabolism: Practical and Nutritional Implications is the first book to successfully integrate nutritional science, exercise physiology/medicine, and metabolism. This volume explores recent scientific evidence that male and female athletes exhibit different metabolic responses and, therefore, differ in their nutritional needs and advice. Anyone interested in good health, exercise, and nutrition will find this book a valuable resource.

Molecular Carcinogenesis and the Molecular Biology of Human Cancer

Molecular Carcinogenesis and the Molecular Biology of Human Cancer Lowest new price: $102.85
Lowest used price: $39.95
List price: $245.00
Brand: Brand: CRC Press

To gain a complete overview of what is presently known about molecular carcinogenesis would prove to be a very daunting task for those not already steeped in this complex subject. Fortunately, David Warshawsky and Joseph Landolph Jr., both highly respected for their own contributions to the field, know exactly whom to call upon to fulfill the need for a definitive summary.

Molecular Carcinogenesis and the Molecular Biology of Human Cancer provides a technical, as well as historical, overview of research covering the science of cancer. This volume explores molecular information specific to chemical, viral, and radiation carcinogenesis, explains the working of cellular oncogenes and tumor suppressor genes, and also introduces readers to the latest genomic and proteomic approaches.

The first part of the book offers basic information; the second part deals strictly with cancer in humans. It commences with discussions on induction and exposure, then reviews complex mixtures of chemical carcinogens, and provides several chapters on tumors, organized by specific organs.

This section also covers chemoprevention of chemical carcinogenesis, exposure assessment, and biomarkers, as well as the role of risk assessment, before offering a discussion on prevention that includes the history and particulars of carcinogen regulations.

Featuring leading researchers writing about their areas of expertise, this book provides a succinct yet detailed reference that meets the needs of professional researchers, clinicians, and environmental regulators, as well as attorneys practicing law in the area of toxic torts. Its progressive structure allows it to also serve as a primary text or resource for students in medicine and cancer research.

Amino Acid Metabolism

Amino Acid Metabolism Lowest new price: $290.26
Lowest used price: $54.64
List price: $149.95
Author: David A. Bender

This second edition of a successful advanced level text links the brief treatment given to amino acid metabolism in most undergraduate biochemistry texts and the more advanced research work that is taking place. Focusing on the relevance of biochemistry to human problems, it covers nitrogen levels and pathways, protein turnover and nutritional aspects of amino acid metabolism, and integrates mechanistic and physiological biochemistry and related mechanisms of metabolic regulation and control. Improved bibliography guides the student to review articles and key original papers.

Membrane Transport and Renal Physiology (The IMA Volumes in Mathematics and its Applications)

Membrane Transport and Renal Physiology (The IMA Volumes in Mathematics and its Applications) Lowest new price: $58.48
Lowest used price: $15.00
List price: $159.99

The papers in this volume arose out of the workshop Membrane Transport and Renal Physiology, which was conducted as part of the IMA 1998-1999 program year, Mathematics in Biology. The workshop brought together physiologists, biophysicists, and applied mathematicians who share a common interest in solute and water transport in biological systems, especially in the integrated function of the kidney. Solute and water transport through cells involves fluxes across two cell membranes, usually via specialized proteins that are integral membrane components. By means of mathematical representations, transport fluxes can be related to transmembrane solute concentrations and electrochemical driving forces. At the next level of functional integration, these representations can serve as key components for models of renal transcellular transport. Ultimately, simulations can be developed for transport-dependent aspects of overall renal function. Workshop topics included solute fluxes through ion channels, cotransporters, and metabolically-driven ion pumps; transport across fiber-matrix and capillary membranes; coordinated transport by renal epithelia; the urine concetrating mechanism; and intra-renal hemodynamic control. This volume will be of interest to biological and mathematical scientists who would like a view of recent mathematical efforts to represent membrane transport and its role in renal function.

Kidney Stones: Medical and Surgical Management

Kidney Stones: Medical and Surgical Management Lowest new price: $63.16
Lowest used price: $12.50
List price: $320.00
Brand: Lippincott

This volume presents a state-of-the-art examination of the medical and surgical management of kidney stones. The opening section on the biophysical and biological bases of stone formation covers such topics as inhibitors and promoters of crystallization, crystal-crystal interactions, oxalate handling by renal cells, and intestinal absorption of calcium and phosphorus. A section on clinical and laboratory evaluation of urolithiasis addresses the analysis of stones, the epidemiology of urolithiasis, the stone-forming patient, laboratory evaluation of patients with urolithiasis, radiologic evaluation of patients with urolithiasis, and the pathophysiology of obstructive uropathy. A section on the surgical management of stones includes consideration of acute and chronic renal pain, percutaneous techniques for stone removal, interventional radiology for stone disease, and management of ureteral calculi. In a final section on medical and surgical management of specific stone types, international experts discuss such topics as primary hyperparathyroidism, renal tubular acidosis, and stones due to bowel disease. In this section, extensive consideration is given to both struvite and urate stones.
