Author: Dr. Merrill Garnett

First Pulse Projects in cooperation with Garnett McKeen Laboratory announces its first publication, First Pulse : A Personal Journey in Cancer Research, written by Merrill Garnett, edited by Bill Jones, with paintings by Joy Garnett. It includes 104 illustrated pages, a foreword by Professor Paul Bingham, Department of Biochemistry and Cell Biology, State University of New York at Stony Brook, and an appendix summarizing laboratory studies carried out with the support of the Carol M. Baldwin Breast Cancer Research Fund. For nearly forty years Dr. Merrill Garnett has pursued the goal of safe and effective treatment of cancer. According to his model, cancer results from the failure of cells to mature.This in turn is caused by a problem of energetics in the cell's metabolic processes. He has developed a chemical compound, palladium lipoic acid, that mimics an energy pathway present in normal cells, missing in cancer cells, and necessary to normal growth and health. This is the unusual story of his single-minded search. It describes Dr. Garnett's work and theory in a way that is stimulating and accessible to the scientist and non-scientist alike.

Breakthroughs in Antipsychotic Medications (Norton Professional Books)

Breakthroughs in Antipsychotic Medications (Norton Professional Books) Lowest new price: $22.95

Author: Ronald J. Diamond MD
Brand: W.W. Norton & Co

For people with schizophrenia and other psychotic disorders, antipsychotic medications are the key to recovery.

Yet, older medications have serious side effects, do not completely alleviate the psychotic symptoms, and rarely affect other symptoms like lethargy.

The new antipsychotics have several advantages over the older medications, and are transforming the lives of many people, but they are not for everyone: They also have side effects and the cost can be prohibitive. Breakthroughs in Antipsychotic Medications helps consumers and their families weigh the pros and cons of switching medications and guides them through the process of switching. With clear, simple language, the book answers such questions as: What are antipsychotic medications and what do they do? What kinds of antipsychotic are available and how are they different? How do I know if switching might (or might not) be a good idea? When is the best time to switch? Which medication should I switch to? How do I make the switch? What will happen after I switch? How can I afford the cost of the new antipsychotics?

The book also gives clinicians technical details on the new medications and their side effects. For example, eight “medication fact sheets” and seven “side effect fact sheets” are included, as well as a discussion of the switching process, assessing the patient's response to the switch, and the long-term issues after switching antipsychotics. A clear and authoritative map for the road to recovery, Breakthroughs in Antipsychotic Medications is a valuable resource for consumers, families, and clinicians.

Long-Term Tamoxifen Treatment

Long-Term Tamoxifen Treatment Lowest new price: $8.00
Lowest used price: $3.00
List price: $40.00
Author: V. Craig Jordan

During the past twenty years tamoxifen has become the most widely prescribed and most successful drug used in the treatment of breast cancer.  In this volume, editor V. Craig Jordan provides articles that trace the development, pharmacology, and clinical research surrounding this drug which, by the year 2000, could be used to treat as many as one million women annually.
    Drawing from research conducted by specialists in the United States, the United Kingdom, and Italy, the series of articles describes the clinical testing of tamoxifen, highlighting the benefits.  Studies show that tamoxifen lowers cholesterol and can potentially protect women against osteoporosis and fatal coronary heart disease.  Equally important is a discussion of side effects and possible drug interactions and how these issues relate to patient concerns.  An investigation of the development of a new class of drugs for use after tamoxifen fails provides valuable insight into future treatments, as the contributers consider possible resistance to tamoxifen.
This volume provides invaluable information for physicians and surgeons who care for patients with breast cancer and for women interested in exploring this therapeutic dimension.

There is no clearer testament to the importance and efficacy of in vitro fertilization in the treatmentof the infertilepatient than the fact that over one million babies have been born since its clinical introduction in 1978. The successof this worldwideendeavorhas evolvedto treat some of the formerly most intractable forms of infertility and requires individuals with different skills and insights whose activities are often compartmentalized into clinical, laboratory and research functions. The intent of Essential lVF is to present current issues in clinical IVF that encompass the varied activities of those engaged in this enterprise. By integrating clinical, basic research and laboratory-related aspects of human reproduction, readers with diverse interests should obtain a more complete understanding of the impact, importance and inter-relatedness of each in the progress of infertility treatment, and an appreciation of whether emerging technologies will or should contribute to this progress in the near future. The topics selected for this volume include research that has begun to explain the origins of differential follicular, gamete, embryo and uterine competence, and specific laboratory procedures and protocols that may have important clinical implications forthe generation ofdevelopmentally viable embryos. Human embryoresearchoverthe past 25 years has notonly confirmed that the developmental potential of each embryo is unique, but more importantly, demonstrated how genetic and nongenetic factors for sperm and oocyte determineembryo competencewell before fertilization. Several chapters deal with the origins of normal and compromised gametes and how those with high competence can be identified and isolated for fertilization.
