Brain Somatic Cross-Talk and the Central Control of Metabolism

Claude Kordon, I. Robinson
e altri

editore: Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH & Co. K

pagine: 208

In mammals, a robust physiologic system acts to maintain relative constancy of weight. A key element of this system is leptin. The nature of this "brain-somatic" cross talk is as yet poorly understood, but it is likely to have important implications for the pathophysiology and treatment of obesity, diabetes and other metabolic disorders.

Diseases of the Thyroid

Lewis E. Braverman

editore: Humana Press Inc.

pagine: 395

In the past five years, so much additional progress has been made in ourunderstanding of both the basic and c1inical aspects of a wide variety of thyroid disorders that a second edition of Diseases of the Thyroid was considered a necessary addition to the Contem- porary Endocrinology series. Fresh perspectives also seemed warranted, so we recruited new authors for many of the chapters and believe that this edition will provide the reader with further insights into the pathophysiology and c1inical presentation and treatment of thyroid disease. It inc1udes topics ranging from neonatal thyroid screening, thyroid dysfunction during infancy and childhood, peripartum thyroid disorders, thyroid disease in the elderly, and the c1inical relevance of the sodiurnliodide symporter (NIS) to the pathogenesis and treatment of nodular goiter, thyroid cancer, thyrotoxicosis, and hypothyroidism. The worldwide problem of iodine deficiency and its eradication is also discussed, along with environmental goitrogens and iodine-induced thyroid disease. I am indebted to all the contributors for their cooperation and expertise in providing their chapters in an extremely timely fashion, to Mr. Thomas Moore and Mr. Craig Adams from Humana Press for their expert assistance, and to Ms. Christine Archung for providing superb administrative assistance.

A-. L. Kinmonth, N. J. Wareham
e altri

editore: John Wiley & Sons Ltd

pagine: 796

Chronic Pancreatitis

Novel Concepts in Biology and Therapy

Helmut Friess, M. W. Buechler
e altri

editore: Blackwell Science Ltd

pagine: 592

The incidence of chronic pancreatitis continues to increase in the Western world. Its pathophysiology is still controversial, but in recent years knowledge of its etiological aspects has increased and new pathophysiological concepts have been presented. There have been new developments in diagnosing the disease, especially through improvements in imaging techniques such as endosonography, CT and MRI and MRCP. It is generally agreed that the primary approach to treatment of chronic pancreatitis should be conservative. The treatment of complications, however, is still a matter of debate between physicians, gastroenterologists and surgeons. This book contains contributions by leading pancreatologists from around the world summarizing the latest developments in the fields of chronic pancreatitis: Etiology; Pathophysiology; Diagnostics; and, Conservative, interventional and surgical treatment. Students, general practitioners and clinicians will all benefit from this presentation.

Mobile Lipid Clinic: a Companion Handbook

Michael Davidson

editore: Lippincott Williams and Wilkins

pagine: 416

Despite tremendous advances in our understanding of the pathogenesis and treatment of atherosclerosis, the actual implementation of proven cardiovascular risk management strategies have been difficult.CHD is a preventable disease, yet very effective treatments for the modification of risk factors remain underused. This book aims to provide an easy to read resource on how to implement risk reductions strategies in conjunction with the use of valuable tools such as (PDA) (personal digital assistant) software.There are many worthwhile and well written resource books about the management and treatment of atherosclerotic disease. This book has been written more as a "how to" manual rather than focusing on detailed information

Dylipidaemia in Clinical Practice

Gilbert Thompson

editore: Taylor & Francis Ltd

pagine: 500

After half a century of doubt and debate, dyslipidemia has at last been accepted by cardiologists and the medical community at large as a major, treatable cause of atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease. A number of guidelines have been issued on the management of dyslipidemia in preventing coronary heart disease. A working knowledge of the various types of dyslipidemia and their treatment is highly relevant to modern medicine, with its accent on prevention. This book, written by a general practitioner, an epidemiologist, and a lipidologist, provides a broad and up-to-date perspective of dyslipidemia and is chiefly intended for use in primary care. It details normal lipid metabolism, describes the genetic and acquired causes of dyslipidemia and reviews the evidence that the latter is a risk factor for vascular disease. Most of the book, however, is devoted to the practicalities of screening, risk assessment and management of dyslipidemia in everyday clinical practice, including chapters summarizing current guidelines, the importance of diet and the role of lipid-lowering drugs. Cardiologists, general practitioners and pharmacists will find this volume indispensable.
