Lowest new price: $47.89
Lowest used price: $42.90
List price: $62.00
Author: Lauri Saxen
This description of a model system for cell differentiation and organogenesis is written by one of the foremost researchers in the area. The main emphasis is on the mammalian kidney, but the book also deals with the development of the transien excretory organs. It includes discussions of induction, proliferation, early cytodifferentiation and morphogenesis and organogenesis. This authoritative account will be valuable to developmental biologists and also to scientists working in paediatric nephrology. As it gives the background of normal development and of control systems, it will also be of use to nephrologists working on abnormalities in the urinary tract.

|Acid and Basics: A Guide to Understanding Acidbase Disorders
Lowest new price: $6.95
Lowest used price: $2.95
List price: $19.50
Author: Jerome Lowenstein
Acid-base metabolism is of fundamental clinical relevance and is one of the areas least well understood by medical students and physicians. The past 10 years have seen tremendous advances in knowledge regarding the molecular basis for membrane transport. This accessible book discusses in detail the intricacies of acid-base physiology, clearly describing how transport proteins delicately facilitate the movement of ions across the cell membranes and preserve the acid-base balance. This information permits an understanding of the physiologic basis for acid-base disorders not previously possible.
|Neurofibromatosis Type I: From Genotype to Phenotype (Human Molecular Genetics)
Lowest used price: $194.00
List price: $135.95
Neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1) is one of the most common dominantly inherited neurogenetic disorders. Affecting 1 in 4000 individuals worldwide. Symptoms include facial and body disfigurement, mental retardation and abnormalities of the cardiovascular, renal and endocrine systems.
This book is written for a broad readership ranging from students to professionals. It provides the reader with a basic overview of the disease before discussing the most recent research and therapeutic developments in detail. It is essential reading for medical geneticists, molecular biologists, dermatologists, oncologists, neurologists, genetic counsellors, general practitioners and research students.
The volume attempts to cover clinical aspects of the disease; gene structure, expression and mutation; structural and functional aspects of the encoded protein, neurofibromin; the role of the NF1gene as a tumour suppressor, the emerging genotype-phenotype relationship for NF1, animal models of the disease and future prospects for disease treatment and prevention.

|Secondary Hypertension: Clinical Presentation,Diagnosis,and Treatment
Author: George A. Mansoor
This indispensable guide critically evaluates for hypertension specialists both established and new techniques for diagnosing and treating secondary hypertension in adults and children. Drawing on a variety of medical disciplines - including nephrology, endocrinology, internal medicine, and pediatrics - its world-renowned authors review the critical scenarios that should prompt a search for secondary forms of hypertension, and detail appropriate testing for these uncommon disorders. Additional coverage is given to exogenous or such less-appreciated causes of secondary hypertension as obstructive sleep apnea, primary aldosteronism, renovascular hypertension, and the effects of noncardiac drugs.
