|Organogenesis of the Kidney (Developmental and Cell Biology Series)
Lowest new price: $51.87
Lowest used price: $42.90
List price: $62.00
Author: Lauri Saxen
Brand: 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.

|Clinical Acid-Base Balance
Lowest new price: $29.50
Lowest used price: $29.45
List price: $55.00
Author: W. S. T. Thomson
Acid-Base is an area which lies within no one specialty and yet is important in renal and pulmonary conditions, for intensive care, and within medicine in general. This book is concise, yet provides comprehensive coverage of acid-base balance in a clinical context. It explains the fundamental processes, their nature and their significance, with an emphasis on practical aspects. The book is divided into three parts, the first providing an introduction to the topic, explaining the underlying principles and concepts of acid-base balance. The second section considers simple disturbances of acid-base balance, and their diagnosis and treatment. The final part concerns mixed disturbances and discusses how acid-base data should be tackled. This section provides a simple and logical approach to the practical problems of the interpretation of acid-base data.
|The Bone and Mineral Manual: A Practical Guide
Lowest new price: $13.40
Lowest used price: $4.26
List price: $50.95
The Bone and Mineral Manual incorporates the most up-to-date laboratory methods, techniques, and approaches for designing strategies and investigating the pathophysiology of bone and mineral metabolism. It presents information in a succinct format that allows practitioners to find the answers they need quickly and easily--even while the patient encouter is still in progress. This practical guide will become a frequent companion of endocriniologists, bone and mineral specialists, and nephrologists.
* Brings together current bone and mineral metabolism methods in one easily accessible volume
* Provides a quick reference for immediate handling of bone and mineral disorders
* Presents information in bullets, highlights, tables, and decision trees rather than lengthy text
* Addresses problems likely to be seen at all ages, from pre-term infant to the centenarian
* Ideal for practicing physicians, residents and medical students
|Neurofibromatosis Type I: From Genotype to Phenotype (Human Molecular Genetics)
Lowest used price: $193.03
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.

List price: $53.00
Supplement Issue: Blood Purification 1998, Vol. 16, Suppl. 1 The Extramural Grant Program (EGP) is an international research funding source established in 1989. Its objectives are to stimulate and support new research ideas through the funding of science in the field of renal disease and to ultimately improve the quality of life for patients with end-stage renal disease. This special issue contains abstracts from the presentations made by the sixty-seven grant recipients at the 1997 annual EGP scientific meeting.
|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.
