Particle Overload In The Rat Lung And Lung Cancer: Implications For Human Risk Assessment

Particle Overload In The Rat Lung And Lung Cancer: Implications For Human Risk Assessment Lowest new price: $260.00
Lowest used price: $204.37
List price: $195.95

Recent inhalation toxicology studies suggest that when laboratory rats are exposed to inorganic particles to the point that lung overload occurs, both benign and malignant tumours may develop. The significance of these results for estimating human risk, however, is unclear.; Originally published as a special issue of the journal "Inhalation Toxicology", the contributions to this volume are derived from a symposium held in March, 1995, by the Environmental Medical Service of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Topics addressed include epidemiology, the pathology of lung tumours, maximum tolerated doses in inhalation toxicology studies, risk assessment, the extrapolation of results from animal studies to humans, current modelling techniques and regulatory concerns.

List price: $47.00

"Dr. Anthony Cosentino and Dr. Richard Martin have formulated an intriguing textbook on cardiothoracic relations in health and disease, with major emphasis on the seldom addressed and often underappreciated influence of chest pressure and lung mechanics on the hemodynamic performance of the heart and pulmonary circulation. It is the purpose of this book to review what is known about cardiothoracic interrealtionships, both in normal and disease. The material will be


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: $45.99
Lowest used price: $7.98
List price: $177.95
Brand: Brand: Wiley-Blackwell

The opening chapter of this book, by scientist Dr. Robert Furchgott, details the discovery of endothelium’s role in the vasodilator effect of acetycholine in 1978. Its subsequent identification as nitric oxide has been critical to cardiovascular medicine 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Spanning from these initial observations to recent clinical investigations, this work offers an invaluable historical reference and clinical explanation about the intracellular mechanisms that regulate and stimulate endothelial nitric oxide synthase (eNOS). The basic mechanisms leading to endothelial dysfunction in cardiovascular disease complement information about the biological role and regulation of endothelial nitric oxide. Clinical studies of impaired endothelial function in patients with different cardiovascular conditions also reveal important and effective therapeutic strategies.

Written for both established physicians and scientists investigating the basic mechanisms and treatment of cardiovascular disease, as well as medical students who want to initiate themselves in the study of endothelial regulation of vascular physiology, many will find this comprehensive review a stimulus for new research.

    Tuberous Sclerosis Complex (Developmental Perspectives in Psychiatry)

    Tuberous Sclerosis Complex (Developmental Perspectives in Psychiatry) Lowest new price: $83.32
    Lowest used price: $5.63
    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.


    Molecular and Cellular Aspects of the Serpinopathies and Disorders in Serpin Activity

    Molecular and Cellular Aspects of the Serpinopathies and Disorders in Serpin Activity Lowest new price: $248.46
    Lowest used price: $156.19
    List price: $285.00
    Author: Gary A. Silverman

    Massive thrombosis or bleeding, hereditary angioedema, Alzheimer's disease, diabetic angiopathy and tumor invasion are some of the human diseases associated with serpins. In addition, mutations that alter serpin conformations (the serpinopathies) lead to lung disease, cirrhosis and a form of familial dementia. The goal of this text is to present the current knowledge on the molecular and cellular basis of serpins and their diseases.

    A disease that has given globalization a bad name, Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS), has plagued no fewer than 30 areas in recent months. In this book, for the first time, leading scientists and researchers converge to shed light on the impacts and implications of this new global threat.Collected together within the volume are more than 20 articles that discuss and examine the SARS outbreak from wide-ranging perspectives — political, social, economic and health. The reader is given insights into how the SARS outbreak has altered public and political understanding of the threat of infectious disease in general. There are lessons for global public health that have emerged from the response to SARS, especially as they pertain to preparedness for the next new disease.Informative but not heavy, insightful but not overwhelming, The New Global Threat: Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome and Its Impacts is an indispensable source of information for anyone who wants to gain a better understanding of the hitherto unknown disease — students, academics and corporate leaders alike.

    Superficial Esophageal Neoplasm: Pathology, Diagnosis, and Therapy

    Superficial Esophageal Neoplasm: Pathology, Diagnosis, and Therapy Lowest new price: $127.09
    Lowest used price: $49.55
    List price: $189.00
    Brand: Brand: Springer

    This book, containing the proceedings of the 2000 Kyoto Symposium on Esophageal Cancer, is an important contribution for all types of physicians interested in both squamous and adenocarcinoma of the esophagus. The volume has great legitimacy and relevance. The symposia hosted by Professor Masayuki Imamura brought together the leaders in several disciplines from Japan with other acknowledged authorities from Europe, the United States, Australia, and other parts of Asia. Japan has long been a leader in making advances in understanding the pathology, diagnosis, and treatment of esophageal squamous cell carcinoma, for several decades originally led by Professor Komei Nakayama and his students. It is now clear that Japanese are also beginning to suffer from esophageal adenocarcinoma and Barrett's columnar lined epithelium, thus enabling the Japanese to formulate studies on the pathology, diagnosis, and treatment for the full spectrum of esophageal neoplasms. The authoritativeness of these proceedings is established not only by the long tradi­ tion of Japanese leadership in the field but by the contributions of the principal leaders from the Nakayama school participating in the honorary faculty and local scientific committee.

    Venous Thromboembolism: Prevention and Treatment

    Venous Thromboembolism: Prevention and Treatment Lowest new price: $95.99
    Lowest used price: $61.39
    List price: $179.00
    Brand: Kunio Shirato

    Pulmonary thromboembolism in Japan is currently associated with a high mortality rate and remains a concern for patients and medical staff alike. Moreover, as the mechanisms of the condition have been elucidated, it has become clear that much work needs to be done in the field to achieve acceptable results in this country. Thus, Japan has regularly played host to the International Symposium on Pulmonary Thromboembolism . At the most recent symposium, in Sendai, the epidemiology and the treatment of pulmonary thromboembolism, traveler's thrombosis, and the prevention of deep vein thromboembolism were discussed, particularly with reference to the differences between Japan and Western countries. The fruits of the collaboration between that assembly of international specialists can be found in this collection of work. It provides an in-depth look at the current concepts that guide the treatment and prevention of the disease, and at the problem areas that must be improved upon.
