Endothelium, Nitric Oxide, and Atherosclerosis: From Basic Mechanisms to Clinical Implications

Endothelium, Nitric Oxide, and Atherosclerosis: From Basic Mechanisms to Clinical Implications Lowest new price: $38.31
Lowest used price: $7.33
List price: $177.95
Brand: Wiley-Blackwell

The opening chapter of this book, by scientist Dr. RobertFurchgott, details the discovery of endothelium’s role in thevasodilator effect of acetycholine in 1978. Its subsequentidentification as nitric oxide has been critical to cardiovascularmedicine in understanding the regulation of vascular homeostasis.This simple observation won Dr. Furchgott a Nobel Prize in 1998.

Spanning from these initial observations to recent clinicalinvestigations, this work offers an invaluable historical referenceand clinical explanation about the intracellular mechanisms thatregulate and stimulate endothelial nitric oxide synthase (eNOS).The basic mechanisms leading to endothelial dysfunction incardiovascular disease complement information about the biologicalrole and regulation of endothelial nitric oxide. Clinical studiesof impaired endothelial function in patients with differentcardiovascular conditions also reveal important and effectivetherapeutic strategies.

Written for both established physicians and scientistsinvestigating the basic mechanisms and treatment of cardiovasculardisease, as well as medical students who want to initiatethemselves in the study of endothelial regulation of vascularphysiology, many will find this comprehensive review a stimulus fornew research.

Random Phenomena: Fundamentals of Probability and Statistics for Engineers

Random Phenomena: Fundamentals of Probability and Statistics for Engineers Lowest new price: $140.14
Lowest used price: $84.87
List price: $170.00
Author: Babatunde A. Ogunnaike
Brand: CRC Press

Many of the problems that engineers face involve randomly varying phenomena of one sort or another. However, if characterized properly, even such randomness and the resulting uncertainty are subject to rigorous mathematical analysis.

Taking into account the uniquely multidisciplinary demands of 21st-century science and engineering, Random Phenomena: Fundamentals of Probability and Statistics for Engineers provides students with a working knowledge of how to solve engineering problems that involve randomly varying phenomena. Basing his approach on the principle of theoretical foundations before application, Dr. Ogunnaike presents a classroom-tested course of study that explains how to master and use probability and statistics appropriately to deal with uncertainty in standard problems and those that are new and unfamiliar.

Giving students the tools and confidence to formulate practical solutions to problems, this book offers many useful features, including:

  • Unique case studies to illustrate the fundamentals and applications of probability and foster understanding of the random variable and its distribution

  • Examples of development, selection, and analysis of probability models for specific random variables

  • Presentation of core concepts and ideas behind statistics and design of experiments

  • Selected "special topics," including reliability and life testing, quality assurance and control, and multivariate analysis
  • As classic scientific boundaries continue to be restructured, the use of engineering is spilling over into more non-traditional areas, ranging from molecular biology to finance. This book emphasizes fundamentals and a "first principles" approach to deal with this evolution. It illustrates theory with practical examples and case studies, equipping readers to deal with a wide range of problems beyond those in the book.

    About the Author:
    Professor Ogunnaike is Interim Dean of Engineering at the University of Delaware. He is the recipient of the 2008 American Automatic Control Council's Control Engineering Practice Award, the ISA's Donald P. Eckman Education Award, the Slocomb Excellence in Teaching Award, and was elected into the US National Academy of Engineering in 2012.

    Tuberous Sclerosis Complex (Developmental Perspectives in Psychiatry) Lowest new price: $12.09
    Lowest used price: $3.99
    List price: $125.00

    Tuberous Sclerosis is a genetic disease characterized by lesions of the skin and central nervous system, seizures, and sometimes sever mental retardation. Infants with this disease may appear overactive, autistic, or socially impaired. Because tuberous sclerosis involves abnormal cellular differentiation, aberrant neuronal migration, and excessive cell proliferation, this thoroughly revised edition will be of interest to a wide range of professionals involved in the study of biological mechanisms underlying many genetically determined neurological disorders.
