The fourth edition of the highly acclaimed "Principles and Practice of Geriatric Medicine" provides an account of the fundamental changes associated with ageing, which are essential to our understanding and management of the elderly sick population. The title has been extensively revised and updates to reflect the enormous changes in treatment options and medical conditions emerged since publication of the third edition. Written by worldwide experts of international repute, this is the most up-to-date and comprehensive single reference source currently available. "Principles & Practice of Geriatric Medicine, Fourth Edition" incorporates: more than 30 new chapters, including: Preventive geriatrics, Anorexia of Aging, Managements of Weight Loss, Dehydration, Vitamins and Minerals in the Elderly, Cancer and Aging, Mild Cognitive Impairment, Treatment of Behavioral Disorders, The Older Patient with Down's Syndrome, Drug Abuse in Older People, Breast Cancer, and Women's health. It offers a truly global perspective, including new chapter on: Care of the elderly in Israel: old age in a young land, Geriatric Medicine in China, Geriatric medicine education in Europe, Geriatrics from the European Union Perspective, India, Day Hospitals, and Perspectives from Latin America. The title will be indispensable for all those involved in the treatment of older patients: Gerontologists to keep up-to-date with the latest developments in the field; General practitioners and specialists in health policy and community care, who increasingly have to deal with a significant number of older people; Academic researchers in geriatric medicine, who are in need for an all encompassing reference work; Medical registrars (UK)/residents (US) in order to pass their exams; Teachers of Geriatric Medicine; Hospital libraries with increasing budgets to spend on much needed resource in this growing field; and, Professionals within the pharmaceutical industry in order to monitor treatment options and new prescription developments.

Geriatric Medicine

An Evidence-based Approach

Christine K. Cassel, Eric B. Larson
e altri

editore: Springer-Verlag New York Inc.

pagine: 1368

Since the publication of the third edition of Geriatric Medicine,extraordinary advances have occurred in the science of aging and the potential for biomedical research to give us answers to many, if not most, of the age-related disorders that threaten the quality of life in older years. At the most basic level, the successful mapping of the human genome was declared complete in the fall of 2000. Understanding the map of the human genome is as important as understanding the map of genomes of important laboratory species, ranging from the microscopic worms and fruit?ies used in most classic genetic studies to rodents such as laboratory mice, and eventually to primates, on which much of the research on the aging human brain is done. The genetic maps of all of these species,including our own,does not answer clinical questions,but it does open the door to dramatic, rapid, and ef?cient answers to questions about the genetic polymorphisms related to diseases in humans. The telomerase story also unfolded since the third edition. Telomerase is an enzyme responsible for maintaining the telomeres-the redundant DNA portions at the end of chromosomes-whose shortening seems to be linked directly to cell senescence,ap- tosis,and the control over cell death,which,at the level of the individual cell,seems to be linked to the decline of organ function and eventually aging and death within the org- ism.
