|Mechanisms in Blood Coagulation, Fibrinolysis and the Complement System

Blood coagulation and fibrinolysis has been traditionally classed as a part of hematology and the complement system as a part of immunology. An analysis of these two systems at a molecular level, however, has revealed some intriguing evolutionary relationships among some of the macromolecules involved. Evidently, there are similarities in the cascade of reactions that characterize the processes. It is therefore highly suitable that these topics are presented together in one volume. This book presents a thorough explanation and analysis of our current understanding of the proteins and enzymes involved in each of the three processes, and includes a section devoted to special topics of relevance, such as the kinin system, glycosylation, signal peptides, and the serpin family.
|Bone Marrow Transplantation

Author: Stephen J. Forman
Bone marrow transplantation has come of age and is now a treatment of choice in many kinds of cancer. It is thus of great interest in the hematological and oncological communities with an increased use of the procedure to current hematological deficiencies and other disorders. There is a 20-year experience of allogeneic and a 10-year experience with BMT. Most of the existing literature dealing with bone marrow transplantation is either symposia or seminar proceedings or deal with advances in BMT. This is the first comprehensive reference which deals with allogeneic and autologous transplantation, hematologic malignancy and solid tumors and non-malignant diseases, as well as the basic science, complications, techniques, and so on
|Coagulation and Flocculation, Second Edition (Surfactant Science)
Lowest new price: $253.11
Lowest used price: $698.10
List price: $265.00
First published in 1993, Coagulation and Flocculation is a practical reference for the researchers in the field of the stabilization and destabilization of fine solid dispersions. By omitting chapters that remained unchanged from the first edition, the editors of this second edition completely update, rewrite, and expand upon all chapters to reflect a decade of the latest advances in both theoretical and application aspects of the field.
The authors provide expanded material that includes dissociation from a solid surface with independent sites; improvements to the Gouy-Chapman model; electrical double layer, surface ionization, and surface heterogeneity; thin liquid films and modeling of a semi-batch process using microprocesses probabilities; and clay mineral intracrystalline reactions, applications, and gelation. New chapters cover homopolymers and their effect on colloid stability, including never before published figures and equations; the stability of suspensions in the presence of surfactants, polymers, and mixtures; and the flocculation and dewatering of fine-particle suspensions, emphasizing floc formation, growth, structure, and applications.
The second edition of Coagulation and Flocculation effectively captures both the theoretical and application aspects of the latest advances in the evolving field of solid dispersions, suspensions, and mixtures.
|Immunodiagnostics: A Practical Approach (Practical Approach Series)

Immunodiagnostic tests are analytical methods that use antibodies as reagents whose results are used to aid diagnosis and are widely used in many scientific disciplines and in many different ways. Perhaps the most widespread and obvious use is in clinical applications, but immunodiagnostic tests are also used in other fields such as forensic science and environmental and food analysis. The different types of test range from simple manual methods to fully automated systems with sophisticated integrated detection. Immunodiagnostics: A Practical Approach starts off by explaining the principles and development of immunodiagnostic tests, specifically the use of radioisotopes as tracers. Chapter 2 explains the use of solid-phase supports to bind immunoreagents. Enzymes are widely used as labels in immunoassays and their use with colourimetric, fluorimetric, and chemiluminescent detection systems is described. The use of enzymes as labels reflects the move away from radioisotopes and one of the most powerful non- radioisotopic procedures is the time-resolved fluorescence assay. Enzymes can also be used as a simple method of obtaining high performance from immunodiagnostics and this application is covered later in the book. The next set of techniques to be described are light scattering techniques, which can be used in either simple manual assays or in sophisticated automated procedures. The penultimate chapter describes the principles of automation of immunodiagnostic tests. The last topic to be discussed is that of quality assurance.

Over five million workers in health care related fields are at risk of exposure to bloodborne pathogens, such as the HIV virus and hepatitis B virus. Designed to meet the current OSHA training requirements, Bloodborne Pathogens was created for students and employees who have potential for occupational exposure to blood or other potentially infectious materials, and even has supplemental information on airborne pathogens such as tuberculosis. The Fifth Edition has been completely revised and updated to comply with the 2005 guidelines for cardiovascular resuscitation (CPR) and emergency cardiovascular care (ECC).

|Bone Marrow Pathology
Lowest used price: $29.84
List price: $195.00
Author: Barbara J. Bain
Bone Marrow Pathology is a practical guide to the diagnosis of bone marrow disease that places abnormalities of the bone marrow within the broader context of clinical and peripheral blood features. It gives equal weight to cytological and histological assessment and emphasises an integrated approach to diagnosis.
The second edition of Bone Marrow Pathology has been expanded to give a more detailed coverage of the subject, including many more colour illustrations, with appendices of technical methods and incorporating the real classification of lymphomas.
Bone Marrow Pathology gives an integrated approach to the subject and is the product of two histopathologists and one haematologist. It will appeal to haematologists, histopathologists and trainee and practising pathologists.
