Pheochromocytoma is a rare neuroendocrine tumor with a highlyvariable presentation. There is lack of agreement about the mostefficient and cost-effective methods for diagnosis and localizationof the tumor, which can be lethal if not identified and treatedpromptly.Autopsy studies indicate that up to 50% of all casesremain undiagnosed until death.
Between 30 and 35% of the tumors have a hereditary basis.Development of malignancy is highly variable -- from less than 5%to more than 50% depending on the mutation; there is currently noeffective cure.
This volume encompasses a number of themes in several sections:genetics and clinical decision-making; genetics, molecular pathwaysof tumorigenesis, and divergent phenotypes; kaleidoscopicpresentations and a minefield for differential diagnosis ofpheochromocytoma; biochemical diagnosis: can we reach consensus?;tumor localization and the evolving importance of functionalimaging; and new molecular markers and targets for diagnosis andtreatment of malignant pheochromcytoma.

Author: Bette Bonder PhD OTR/L FAOTA
This text is designed as an overview of the kinds of clients with whom occupational therapists and other health care providers are likely to work. It gives therapists an understanding of the ways in which other mental health professionals view these individuals. While providing this crucial understanding, it also gives occupational therapists the ability to maintain their unique perspective, and to make their vital contribution to effective intervention and an enhanced quality of patient care. The major DSM-IV categories are described with regard to incidence of the disorders, symptomatology, aetiology and prognosis. Functional performance is also examined for each disorder in terms of skills and activities. The book features: appendices covering DSM-IV classification and uniform terminology; a glossary for quick reference; a chapter on psychopharmacotherapy by Philip J. Fischer; and coverage of treatment with psychotropic medications and how they affect therapy treatment planning.
|The Design of Analgesic Clinical Trials (Advances in Pain Research & Therapy)
Lowest new price: $212.97
Lowest used price: $38.97
List price: $159.00
Author: Mitchell B. Max
In this text specialists in the area of analgesic trial design present a guide to the clinical evaluation of agents and methods for acute and chronic pain control. The material in the book deals with topics such as chronic drug studies, tailoring designs to patients with specific diseases, probing neural mechanisms of pain, integrating recent advances in pharmacokinetics and statistics, and studying the effectiveness of efforts to improve clinicians' analgesic practice. For investigators studying the properties and clinical potential of analgesic compounds, the book reviews the regulatory requirements, describes the most efficient ways to screen for efficacy and toxicity, and explains how to plan a series of controlled trials, choosing from many standard clinical "pain models". For clinicians seeking improved strategies for pain relief, the book presents analgesic trials for specific types of pain such as postoperative pain, neuropathic pain syndromes, cancer pain, low back pain, osteoarthritis, sickle cell disease, sports injuries, orofacial pain, headache and dysmenorrhea. Also included are discussions of new methodologies in analgesic studies - such as multiple dose studies; comparing spinal, transdermal, and other novel routes to standard oral or systemic administration; patient-controlled analgesia paradigms; evaluation of analgesic prescribing practices; and advances in pharmacokinetics and biostatistics. Following many of the chapters are commentaries by experts in analgesic research that highlight unresolved issues and ongoing controversies.
