Oxford Desk Reference Clinical Genetics (Oxford Desk Reference Series) Lowest new price: $130.33
Lowest used price: $79.99
List price: $120.00
Author: Jane A. Hurst

This important new book provides a useful, easy-to-use guide to the clinical consultation in genetics. It covers the process of diagnosis, investigation, management, and counselling for patients. The authors have used their experience to devise a practical clinical approach to many common genetic referrals, both out-patient and ward-based. The most common Mendelian disorders, chromosomal disorders, congenital anomalies and syndromes are covered. In addition there are chapters on familial cancer and pregnancy-related topics such as fetal anomalies, teratogens, prenatal and pre-implantation diagnosis. The book also provides information on the less common situations, where management is particularly complex, or important genetic concepts are illustrated.
Most of the topics fit onto a double-page spread ensuring that the book is an accessible, quick reference for the clinic or hospital consultation. Where available, diagnostic criteria for specific conditions are included as well as contact details for support groups. The book is well-illustrated and has an up-to-date bibliography and glossaries of terms used in genetics and dysmorphology. This accessible book is designed for use by consultants and trainees in clinical genetics, genetic counsellors and paediatricians, particularly those working in paediatric neurology, neonatology or child development.

Lowest used price: $138.29
List price: $233.00

In this book, internationally recognized experts review the most important advances regarding the group of human developmental disorders caused by constitutive dysregulation of the Ras-MAPK signalling pathway, including Noonan, cardiofaciocutaneous, LEOPARD and Costello syndromes. A historical overview given by Jacqueline Noonan is followed by chapters dedicated to comprehensive clinical summaries of each condition and up-to-date reviews on associated gene mutations and molecular pathomechanisms. Genotypephenotype correlations are outlined. Further topics include the characterization and underlying mechanisms of common abnormalities in these syndromes such as growth failure, heart defects, and tumor risk. Animal models and the relation to neurofibromatosis type 1 are discussed. The final chapter covers the critical area of treatment including prospects emerging from an improved understanding of the pathophysiology of these disorders. Providing a concise overview of a very rapidly developing field and suggesting ways how to integrate the latest findings from basic molecular research into clinical practice, this book will be of interest to clinical geneticists, pediatricians, pediatric cardiologists, and pediatric endocrinologists, as well as to human molecular geneticists and other basic researchers working on the RAS pathway.

Dwarfism: Medical and Psychosocial Aspects of Profound Short Stature

Dwarfism: Medical and Psychosocial Aspects of Profound Short Stature Lowest new price: $27.26
Lowest used price: $10.38
List price: $38.00
Author: Betty M. Adelson PhD
Brand: Brand: Johns Hopkins University Press

This landmark volume is the first to trace the exciting developments in the field of dwarfism research and treatment over the past century―particularly during the past fifty years. Dr. Betty M. Adelson, a psychologist, has unearthed and synthesized the most significant information about dwarfing conditions, from articles written a century ago to current books and specialized databases.

Highlighting the outstanding contributions of Dr. Victor McKusick and several of his colleagues, Dr. Adelson reveals how dwarfism specialists have helped redefine the nature of medical care―transforming it from an authoritarian enterprise into a holistic, collaborative venture among physicians, affected individuals, and their families.

The parent of an adult dwarf daughter, Adelson examines the social forces that affect the dwarfism community. She offers personal descriptions of the day-to-day challenges dwarf individuals face and portrays their accomplishments. Insightful and accessible, this work will prove a valuable resource for affected individuals, their families, and medical professionals―physicians, nurses, genetic counselors, social workers, psychologists, and medical students.

Human Evolutionary Genetics: Origins, Peoples and Disease

Human Evolutionary Genetics: Origins, Peoples and Disease Lowest new price: $30.00
Lowest used price: $3.99
List price: $131.00
Author: Mark A. Jobling

Human Evolutionary Genetics is a groundbreaking text which for the first time brings together molecular genetics and genomics to the study of the origins and movements of human populations.

Starting with an overview of molecular genomics for the non-specialist (which can be a useful review for those with a more genetic background), the book shows how data from the post-genomic era can be used to examine human origins and the human colonisation of the planet, richly illustrated with genetic trees and global maps. For the first time in a textbook, the authors outline how genetic data and the understanding of our origins which emerges, can be applied to contemporary population analyses, including genealogies, forensics and medicine.
