    Summary: G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) are heptahelical transmembrane receptors that convert extra-cellular stimuli into intra-cellular signaling, and ultimately into biological responses. Since GPCRs are natural targets for approximately 40% of all modern medicines, it is not surprising that they have been the subject of intense research. Notwithstanding the amount of data generated over the years, discovering ligands of these receptors with optimal therapeutic properties is not straightforward and has certainly been hampered for years by the lack of high-resolution structural information about these receptors.--Back cover.

    Summary: This second edition is fully updated throughout and covers the emerging evidence that indicates that the Gadd45 family of proteins plays a unique and critical role as sensors of stress, including genotoxic, physiological, and oncogenic stress. It sheds light on the complex cellular stress response, encompassing myriad molecular pathways with a plethora of regulators and effectors. The GADD45 stress response genes encode small (18 kd) nuclear/cytoplasmic proteins. These genes are rapidly induced by a wide variety of endogenous and exogenous stress stimuli. Despite marked similarities, Gadd45 genes are regulated differentially and exhibit functional diversity. Gadd45 proteins respond to physiological and oncogenic stress, and are implicated in cell cycle arrest, DNA demethylation and repair, apoptosis, cell survival, genomic stability, and inflammation. The purpose of this book is to provide a comprehensive overview of the unique global role that Gadd45 proteins play as stress sensors and the molecular pathways involved.

    Summary: "Seventeen years since the first edition and eight years since DSM-5 reclassified "pathological gambling," Gambling Disorder: A Clinical Guide to Treatment is here to provide clinicians with the latest thinking about gambling disorder. It is an exciting moment in the history of gambling research, with scholarly inquiry into the epidemiology, etiology, neurobiology, and treatment of this disorder growing by leaps and bounds. However, many clinicians remain unaware of the disorder's symptoms, though common, and are uninformed about available treatments, many developed quite recently. Acting on this knowledge, the editors set out to compile a guide that would equip clinicians to recognize patients exhibiting signs of the disorder, competently assess them, and work to identify effective treatment options. In addition, the book explores different ways the disorder may manifest across genders and among older and younger patients, forensic issues, and the relatively new area of study, online gambling and gambling-gaming convergence. Not so much a revision as a reconceptualization, Gambling Disorder: A Clinical Guide to Treatment brings a new cast of contributors, a totally restructured text, and the research and clinical wisdom amassed over the past decade and a half to bear on this critically important, yet often overlooked, disorder"-- Provided by publisher.

    Summary: The book Gamete and Embryo-fetal Origins of Adult Diseases introduces various diseases resulting from the abnormal gametogenesis and embryo development, which manifests as growth retardation, birth defects, or increased susceptibility to chronic metabolic diseases such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease and cancer in childhood and adult life, even fertility disorders and the risk of transgenerational transmission. Six common kinds of these diseases are discussed in separate chapters. The authors explore the connections between these diseases and epigenetic reprogramming, rapid cell differentiation and organ formation and environmental influences, including assisted reproductive technology and adverse intrauterine environments. With a summary of findings on the causes and progression of adult diseases at the phase of gametogenesis and embryo development, this book provides insights into the pathogenesis of disease and aids in the treatment and prevention of disease, meeting the requirement for improving the quality of the newborn population, and effectively preventing and curing major diseases at an early stage. This book offers new perspectives and will be an enlightening resource for obstetricians, paediatricians, epidemiologists, endocrinologists and sanitarians.

    Summary: This book presents the latest knowledge and the most recent research results in the field of ganglioside biochemistry. The early chapters cover all relevant background on sialic acids and their biosynthesis, on N-glycolylneuraminic acid (Neu5Gc), which cannot be synthesized by humans, and on general aspects of ganglioside research. Ganglioside adsorption, disorders of ganglioside degradation, and the regulation of gangliosides are thoroughly discussed. A major focus of the book is the role of gangliosides in cancer. Here, the discussion encompasses, for example, the biological importance, antigenicity, and immunological actions of tumor-associated gangliosides (TAGs), the significance of different glycolipids and gangliosides as TAGs, and emerging anti-cancer vaccine strategies. The ability of sialic acids and TAGs of tumor cells to escape immunosurveillance and immunoediting also receives detailed attention. The significance of sialic acids in regulation of the complement system is explained, and the closing chapter focuses especially on the role of sialyl T antigen in cancer. The book will be of value for all who are interested in functional glycobiology and glycomic studies.

    Summary: "This book presents a state-of-the-art report on recent advances concerning Ganoderma and where the field is going. Although some older work is also cited, the main focus is on advances made over the past 20 years in the research history, classification, chemical components and industry of Ganoderma. Ganoderma lucidum (Lingzhi) has been used as a traditional medicine in Asian countries to maintain health and to treat diseases for more than two thousand years. Recently, its value has been demonstrated in preventing and treating certain diseases, such as tumors, liver disorders, renal injury, hypercholesterolemia, obesity, cerebral ischemia reperfusion, bronchitis etc. In addition, laboratory and clinical studies have confirmed that the chemical components of Ganoderma, such as Ganoderma lucidum polysaccharide peptides and triterpenes isolated from the fruiting body of Ganoderma lucidum, produce diverse pharmacological effects. Ganoderma and its components play an important part in antioxidant stress, radical-scavenging, immunomodulation, and intracellular signaling regulation, and accordingly warrant further study. This book systematically reviews the latest advances in our understanding of Ganoderma's basic knowledge, history of modern research, species, cultivation, components, spore polysaccharide and industry of Ganoderma, and offers researchers and graduate students valuable new insights into the development and clinical applications of Ganoderma and related products"--Publisher's description.

    Summary: " ... our primary goal has been to streamline the text of the "parent" volume, Ganong's Review of Medical Physiology for ease of review, retaining only the most high-yield concepts and illustrations. We have updated the content where needed, aligned the self-study questions with the order in which concepts are presented in the text, and expanded the explanations of why the answer to these questions is in fact the best one and why the distractors are wrong, further enhancing conceptual understanding of physiology rather than simply reinforcing rote memorization.

    Summary: Twenty-five years ago, a monograph on gastric cancer was published by the Italian Society of Surgery: that book is recognized as a milestone in the management of these tumors in Italy. Oncological and surgical knowledge in the field of gastric cancer have changed dramatically over the last 25 years. The aim of this book is to offer an essential update on current diagnostic approaches and optimal treatment strategies. It gives comprehensive information on gastric cancer not neglecting the basic sciences, which can shed light on the carcinogenesis mechanisms involved in this pathology. The principles of tailored and multimodal treatment are examined according to the latest guidelines with the aim of providing a valuable synopsis for clinicians. The book not only reviews what has changed in the field of gastric cancer over the past quarter century but also offers the reader a glimpse of the future by describing the ongoing surgical and oncological trials which focus on new treatment frontiers such as immunotherapy and target therapy. It also seeks to incorporate the latest discoveries based on molecular classifications. Further, the book reflects the findings and experiences of Italian experts belonging to the GIRCG (Italian Research Group for Gastric Cancer) and will offer an excellent guide for oncological surgeons in their daily practice of caring for patients affected by gastric cancer.

    Summary: This book is designed to present readers with comprehensive, high-quality research results on almost all aspects of this carcinoma in clinical management, from correct determination of the esophagogastric junction, issues on cardiac mucosa, epidemiology, and natural history, to clinical, endoscopic, and histopathologic features and diagnostic pitfalls of this carcinoma at both early and advanced stages. Once diagnosed and correctly staged, clinical management of this carcinoma at the early stage is addressed primarily with endoscopic therapy employing the latest endoscopic technology such as endoscopic submucosal dissection, in which detailed technical topics of the endoscopic therapy are written by experts in the field with sections from pre-resection staging and patient preparation to post-resection complications and management. Subsequently, clinical management of gastric cardiac carcinoma at advanced stages is discussed at length with a personalized, multidiscipline approach with strategies from surgical resections with various methods, to pre-, peri- and post-resection chemoradiation therapies as well as the most advanced immunotherapy. A state-of-art approach with the results of meta-analyses and large-scale randomized double-blinded clinical trials are employed throughout these chapters. For patients at the terminal ill stage, the appropriate palliative care plan is presented by experienced clinicians armed with the latest clinical practice guidelines to better manage and help those patients in the last period of their lives.

    Summary: In order to understand common conditions such as coeliac disease and Crohn's disease, one must view the gut in its evolutionary context. This is the novel approach to the gut and its diseases that is adopted in this book. The first part tells the story of the evolution of the gut itself - why it came about and how it has influenced the evolution of animals ever since. The second part focuses on the evolution of immunity and how the layers of immune mechanisms are retained in the gut, resembling the strata revealed in an archeological dig. The final part, 'The Gastro-Archeologist', ties the first two together and highlights how understanding the gut and immune system in their evolutionary context can help us understand diseases affecting them. Ambitious in its scope but telling a unique story from a refreshingly novel perspective, the book offers an informative and enjoyable read. As the story of the gut, immunity and disease unfolds, the author aims to endow readers with the same sense of awe and excitement that the subject evokes in him. Difficult concepts are illustrated using simple and colourful analogies, and the main content is supplemented with anecdotes and unusual and amusing facts throughout the book. The book is intended for anyone with an interest in the gut, its immunity and diseases, ranging from school and college biology and biomedical students, to professionals working in the field, and to patients suffering from intestinal diseases who want to understand more about their conditions.

    Summary: This book fills a void in the market for specialists who are working in areas without the support of gastroenterologists. Due to a lack of local expertise, treatment decisions in the field of gastroenterology frequently have to be made by non-gastroenterologists. The book addresses this problem by providing clear instructions on the diagnosis, medical management and on-going treatment of the most common disease patterns encountered in gastroenterology. Written by leading experts in their respective fields, it offers up-to-date evidence and insights into these conditions to enable adequate decision-making and safe management of these conditions. -- Provided by publisher.

    Summary: This book presents research outcomes, providing a big picture of rheumatic diseases as systemic conditions, and exploring the correlation between liver dysfunction and gastrointestinal lesions. Each chapter presents the association between major rheumatic diseases and hepato-gastrointestinal lesions, including liver and gastrointestinal involvement in lupus erythematosus, dermatomyositis, systemic sclerosis, Bechet's disease, and IgG4-related disease. The chapters on PBC-CREST syndrome and immunosuppressive agents broaden readers understanding and enable them to view the diseases from a systematic perspective. Although the disease is rare, it has attracted considerable attention as an intractable disease, and despite the severity of the symptoms, little has been written on the topic. Adopting a multidisciplinary approach, this comprehensive volume thoroughly prepares readers for research in the field of systemic diseases. Gastrointestinal and Hepatic Manifestations of Rheumatic Diseases is a valuable resource not only for hepatologists and rheumatologists, but also clinical residents and medical students.

    Summary: This book answers key questions asked by emergency clinicians faced with complex gastrointestinal and abdominal pain presentations. Instead of a traditional format that includes epidemiology, pathophysiology, diagnosis, and treatment options, this book takes an approach that mirrors the way clinicians interact with patients – by asking and answering specific clinical care questions. The book is organized into sections by presentation – gastrointestinal bleeding, for example – each of which contains chapters on specific questions, such as “What is the best clinical risk score for low risk GIB patients?” Each clinical question comes with a detailed, evidence-based response and a summary that gives best practices, recommendations, and references. Additionally, at the end of each section is a chapter titled “Expert Corner,” which asks the same clinical questions to a surgical or gastrointestinal specialist and includes key pearls these experts have for emergency medicine practitioners. Gastrointestinal Emergencies: Evidence-Based Answers to Key Clinical Questions is an essential guide for emergency medicine physicians, residents, and medical students who want to review and improve their care of acute gastrointestinal emergencies.

    Summary: "This book is intended to help with the microscopic evaluation and the formulation of a differential diagnosis when interpreting gastrointestinal (GI) biopsies (including methods of cytologic acquisition) in the context of the clinical and endoscopic presentation. It is also intended to help gastroenterologists optimize the acquision, and initial handling of biopsy specimens to facilitate an informative diagnosis The goal is to provide a companion to the diagnostic pathologists and to teach pathology residents /fellows, as well as gastroenterologists, the importance of correlating clinical impression, endoscopic findings and microscopic interpretation (with an emphasis on inflammatory and infectious lesions, rather than neoplasms). To assure that the presentation of the material matches "real-life" a standardized format is used for each major entity reported: Clinical presentation, endoscopic appearance and expectations by the gastroenterologist; specific methods, locations, and numbers of biopsy samples needed for specific conditions, and specific handling requirements for specific conditions; the pathologic part of the text will be classic with description of significant architectural changes, but with emphasis on "pathognomonic" characteristics and secondary features; differential diagnosis presented sequentially presented on a) clinical presentation; b) microscopic appearance and c) results of ancillary studies (when performed); suggestions for reporting (i.e., key elements to include in the pathology reports) are offered where appropriate; simple clinical management clues based on the pathologic will conclude each section"-- Provided by publisher.

    Summary: This book offers one of the most comprehensive reviews in the field of gastrointestinal (GI) physiology, guiding readers on a journey through the complete digestive tract, while also highlighting related organs and glandular systems. It is not solely limited to organ system physiology, and related disciplines like anatomy and histology, but also examines the molecular and cellular processes that keep the digestive system running. As such, the book provides extensive information on the molecular, cellular, tissue, organ, and system levels of functions in the GI system. Chapters on the roles of the gut as an endocrine, exocrine and neural organ, as well as its microbiome functions, broaden readers' understanding of the multi-organ networks in the human body. To help illustrate the interconnections between the physiological concepts, principles and clinical presentations, it outlines clinical examples such as pathologies that link basic science with clinical practice in special "clinical correlates" sections. Covering both traditional and contemporary topics, it is a valuable resource for biomedical students, as well as healthcare and scientific professionals.

    Summary: This book provides a comprehensive and up-to-date overview of gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs). GISTs represent the most common mesenchymal neoplasms arising within the gastrointestinal tract. The causative gene of this disease was originally discovered in Japan by Prof. Seichi Hirota in 1998, and since then numerous important advances – from basic to clinical aspects – have been reported from Japan. Professionals involved in the management of GISTs inevitably cite significant evidence and the state-of-the-art treatments from the Asian region, where has there is and inherently high prevalence of gastrointestinal cancers. Each expert author elucidates the cutting-edge knowledge on pathophysiology, diagnosis, and treatment of GISTs, especially focusing on the highly valuable data from Japan. This attractive collection benefits not only oncologists but also basic researchers, general physicians and surgeons, as well as paramedical staff and medical students who are dealing with GISTs.

    Summary: "The first edition of Non-Epileptic Seizures was published in 1993 and edited by Drs. A. James Rowan and John R. Gates. Based on a 1990 symposium called "The Dilemma of Non-Epileptic (Pseudoepileptic) Seizures," this instant classic synthesized the available knowledge and hypotheses regarding all facets of nonepileptic seizures into four sections: neurological, psychiatric and neuropsychological aspects, and fundamentals of treatment. The second edition was published in 2000 and reflected the continued outgrowth of the 1993 symposium as well as a second conference - "Non-Epileptic Seizures: A Consensus Conference on Diagnosis and Treatment - held in Bethesda in 1996. A third conference, "The 2005 Psychogenic Nonepileptic Seizures (PNES) Treatment Workshop, sponsored by the NINDS, the NIMH, and the American Epilepsy Society and organized by W. Curt LaFrance, Jr., brought together experts from around the world, representing many disciplines. The enthusiasm emanating from that landmark meeting reverberated widely amongst professionals interested in the evaluation and treatment of persons with PNES. Sadly, the field soon afterwards lost its pioneers: John Gates on September 28, 2005 and Jim Rowan on August 27, 2006"--Provided by publisher.

    Summary: This book provides in-depth information on all key aspects of geminivirus biology, e.g. the genetics and evolution, global diversity and spread of these plant pathogens, as well as the molecular mechanisms underlying their virulence. Geminiviridae is one of the largest viral families, comprising numerous plant-infecting viruses that cause diseases in crops and weeds. These diseases have been reported from nearly all continents, in particular Asia, Europe, Africa and America. The book summarizes the current state of knowledge on the interactions between plant host and virus. In addition, it discusses advances regarding the trans-replication of satellite molecules and its effect on geminiviral pathogenesis, as well as pest management strategies to combat these diseases in the field. Given its scope, the book is a must-read reference guide for all researchers and advanced students working in virology, agriculture and plant biotechnology.

    Summary: "Our newest generation, Generation Z, or Zoomers, are coming of age in a world rife with amazing new opportunities and unprecedented challenges. Born around the time the World Wide Web made its public debut in 1995, they are "digital natives," the first generation never to know the world without the Internet. They have grown up alongside powerful global networks that offer endless information and connectivity. They have also had the clear realization that their elders know no better than they do how to navigate ongoing crises; that they and their planet have been badly betrayed by decisions which preceded them. In Gen Z, Explained, a team of social scientists set out to take a comprehensive look at this generation, drawing on wide and lively interviews, surveys, and comprehensive linguistic analysis (deploying the authors' proprietary iGen Corpus, a 70-million word collection of Gen-Z-specific English language scraped from social media, time-aligned video transcriptions, and memes). It paints a portrait of an extraordinarily challenged, thoughtful, and promising generation--while sounding a warning to their elders. The authors show that despite all the seemingly insurmountable difficulties they face, this generation continues to be idealistic about the future and highly motivated to make change"-- Provided by publisher.

    Summary: This book comprehensively reviews the characteristics of the body reflected in the skin due to differences in gender. It investigates the genetic and hormonal differences that can affect skin structure and function, and resulting in variations between women and men. The aging process and exogenous factors that differ according to differences in lifestyle between the sexes are also covered. Gender and Dermatology comprehensively outlines the various aspects of physiological differences between the skin of women and men using practical examples and review of the basic science. It is therefore an important clinically-relevant review for both the trainee and experienced practitioner in dermatology, primary care, geriatrics and immunology, while also being of interest to researchers in genetics and metabolic medicine. .

    Summary: This book focuses on the influence of sex and gender in migraine, presenting new insights in basic science as well as their clinical relevance. As migraine is roughly three times more common in women than in men, and also highly depends on hormonal milestones – such as menarche, menstruation, pregnancy and menopause – particular attention is devoted to the role of female sex hormones in this disease. The first chapters present general data on gender-related differences in migraine such as epidemiology, comorbidities and related risks. Furthermore, while several chapters focus on the role of female sex hormones in migraine-triggering mechanisms at a basic scientific level (e.g. cranial circulation), ample attention is also paid to the clinical relevance of such mechanisms and to the best clinical treatment for migraine patients. As the first book entirely devoted to this topic, it will be of interest to researchers and practitioners in the fields of neurology, internal medicine, endocrinology, physiology and pharmacology.

    Summary: This book reviews all aspects of the diagnosis and management of heart disease in women, covering areas such as gender differences in metabolic syndrome, hypertension and atherogenesis. Gender differences in cardiovascular diseases are widespread, but while gender medicine takes into account the effects of sex and gender on the health of women and men, traditionally, women have been underrepresented in cardiovascular clinical trials, in management of different cardiac diseases and drug use. Gender Differences in the Pathogenesis and Management of Heart Disease deals with the gender-specific differences in cardiac physiology and diseases and brings into perspective the critical significance of gender in management of cardiovascular disease presentations and management. As such it is of enormous use to all clinical staff who manage women with cardiovascular disease.

    Summary: "In 2014, Maia Kobabe, who uses e/em/eir pronouns, thought that a comic of reading statistics would be the last autobiographical comic e would ever write. At the time, it was the only thing e felt comfortable with strangers knowing about em. Now, Gender Queer is here. Maia's intensely cathartic autobiography charts eir journey of self-identity, which includes the mortification and confusion of adolescent crushes, grappling with how to come out to family and society, bonding with friends over erotic gay fanfiction, and facing the trauma and fundamental violation of pap smears. Started as a way to explain to eir family what it means to be nonbinary and asexual, Gender Queer is more than a personal story: it is a useful and touching guide on gender identity--what it means and how to think about it--for advocates, friends, and humans everywhere."--Amazon.

    Siddhartha Mukherjee.
    Summary: The Pulitzer Prize-winning author draws on his scientific knowledge and research to describe the magisterial history of a scientific idea, the quest to decipher the master-code of instructions that makes and defines humans; that governs our form, function, and fate; and that determines the future of our children. The story of the gene begins in earnest in an obscure Augustinian abbey in Moravia in 1856 where Gregor Mendel, a monk working with pea plants, stumbles on the idea of a "unit of heredity." It intersects with Darwin's theory of evolution, and collides with the horrors of Nazi eugenics in the 1940s. The gene transforms postwar biology. It invades discourses concerning race and identity and provides startling answers to some of the most potent questions coursing through our political and cultural realms. It reorganizes our understanding of sexuality, gender identity, sexual orientation, temperament, choice, and free will, thus raising the most urgent questions affecting our personal realms. Above all, the story of the gene is driven by human ingenuity and obsessive minds--from Mendel and Darwin to Francis Crick, James Watson, and Rosalind Franklin to the thousands of scientists working today to understand the code of codes. Woven through the book is the story of Mukherjee's own family and its recurring pattern of schizophrenia, a haunting reminder that the science of genetics is not confined to the laboratory but is vitally relevant to everyday lives. The moral complexity of genetics reverberates even more urgently today as we learn to "read" and "write" the human genome--unleashing the potential to change the fates and identities of our children and our children's children.--Adapted from dust jacket.

    Summary: In this book, leading experts provide detailed descriptions of the exciting treatments that are expected to become part of the ophthalmologist?s arsenal within the next 10?20 years. The treatments discussed relate to a wide variety of conditions, including macular degeneration, Leber?s congenital amaurosis, retinitis pigmentosa and choroideremia. The authors explain clearly how different gene and cell therapies work and provide first-hand accounts of the difficulties that they have faced in bringing these technologies to clinical trial, such as issues relating to funding and ownership. Results achieved to date are presented, and the further steps required before the treatment in question can become a routine option are considered. Gene- and Cell-Based Treatment Strategies for the Eye is unique in showing the organic development of cutting-edge science into potential treatments for eye disease without compromising on accurate reporting of scientific facts. It will persuade the average practitioner or researcher ? whether ophthalmologist, health worker, or scientist ? that change is indeed coming and is not just a hollow promise of the tabloid media.

    Summary: Recent advances in stem cell biology, nanotechnology and gene therapy have opened new avenues for therapeutics. The availability of molecular therapeutics that rely on the delivery of DNA, RNA or proteins, harnessing enhanced delivery with nanoparticles, and the regenerative potential of stem cells (adult, embryonic or induced pluripotent stem cells) has had a tremendous impact on translational medicine. The chapters in this book cover a range of strategies for molecular and cellular therapies for human disease, their advantages, and central challenges to their widespread application. Potential solutions to these issues are also discussed in detail. Further, the book addresses numerous advances in the field of molecular therapeutics that will be of interest to the general scientific community. Lastly, the book provides specific examples of disease conditions for which these strategies have been transferred to the clinic. As such, it will be extremely useful for all students, researchers and clinicians working in the field of translational medicine and molecular therapeutics.

    Summary: This book offers an updated overview of the most recent research advances in the field, a comparison of established techniques and methods, a discussion on current experimental and translational challenges, and a commentary on potential opportunities and future directions. Dedicated chapters address and review the preclinical and clinical state-of-the-art of gene therapies for the reconstructive and regenerative surgery of skin and wounds, pathological scars, cartilage, tendons, skeletal muscles, and bio-engineered flaps. A brief guide to developing gene therapy clinical trials in the context of reconstructive and regenerative surgery is also provided. Biomedical and technological innovations are transforming our capacity to use gene therapies to safely and effectively repair, reconstruct, and regenerate tissues that are deficient or have been damaged by trauma and diseases. The targeted and controlled modulation of gene expression in tissues represents a game-changing, next-generation therapeutic tool for the modern reconstructive surgeon, expanding the horizon of regenerative surgery and tissue engineering. Through gene therapies, surgeons can direct (stem) cell differentiation and cell function, modulate the release of growth/transcriptional factors, affect the biological properties of regenerative scaffolds, control tissue inflammation, or induce immune-suppression in composite tissue allotransplants and xenotransplants. Written by renowned reconstructive surgeons and leading experts in each of these fields - from top academic institutions around the globe, the book provides an initial practical guide for veteran and newcomer surgeons alike, as well as for researchers interested in exploring the latest gene-based therapeutic strategies for reconstructive and regenerative surgery.

    Summary: In The Genealogy of a Gene, Myles Jackson uses the story of the CCR5 gene to investigate the interrelationships among science, technology, and society. Mapping the varied "genealogy" of CCR5 -- intellectual property, natural selection, Big and Small Pharma, human diversity studies, personalized medicine, ancestry studies, and race and genomics -- Jackson links a myriad of diverse topics. The history of CCR5 from the 1990s to the present offers a vivid illustration of how intellectual property law has changed the conduct and content of scientific knowledge, and the social, political, and ethical implications of such a transformation. The CCR5 gene began as a small sequence of DNA, became a patented product of a corporation, and then, when it was found to be an AIDS virus co-receptor with a key role in the immune system, it became part of the biomedical research world -- and a potential moneymaker for the pharmaceutical industry. When it was further discovered that a mutation of the gene found in certain populations conferred near-immunity to the AIDS virus, questions about race and genetics arose. Jackson describes these developments in the context of larger issues, including the rise of "biocapitalism," the patentability of products of nature, the difference between U.S. and European patenting approaches, and the relevance of race and ethnicity to medical research.

    Summary: Aimed at the practising clinician, this book, now in its third edition, provides a welcome detailed overview of the medical and surgical conditions that affect patients seen in everyday dental practice. With patients surviving longer due to medical advances, dentists are increasingly faced with complex conditions and possibly some that they have not previously encountered. Here, treatment advice, drug interactions, and the impact of general medical and surgical conditions on treatment planning in the dental context are all covered with a comprehensive but practical approach. In addition to chapters on the implications for dental practice of disorders of each of the different body systems and immunological and infectious diseases, important aspects in particular patient groups, including cancer patients, the elderly, and the paediatric population, are identified. Overall, this book provides dentists with a practical, logical, and convenient guide of great value, helping to update knowledge and foster improved patient care.

    Summary: This book highlights common similarities between the various schools of psychotherapy. It provides psychotherapists with the underlying neurophysiological, developmental psychological and relationship-oriented matrix (basic needs and their regulation, deficits, trauma and conflict processing patterns, including accompanying exercises) as well as opportunities for healing correction and stabilisation - and the ways in which to apply these methods in a therapeutically mindful way for the benefit of the patient. The new university-based psychotherapy training covers the four fundamental schools of psychotherapy, i.e. the previous standard approaches plus the systemic and humanistic ones. Focusing on the common ground builds bridges of understanding and encourages collaboration. This expanded, new range of methods to access patients constitutes a substantial development in the field of psychotherapy and will also influence the psychotherapy practice of experienced colleagues. Written for medical and psychological psychotherapists, psychosomatic doctors, psychiatrists and other specialists with additional psychotherapeutic qualifications, and for students of psychotherapy. .

    Summary: "Each year, general surgery residents across the county spend hundreds of hours studying for the American Board of Surgery certifying exam, also known as general surgery oral boards. This test is the final obstacle for general surgery residents on their journey to become board certified, practicing general surgeons in an easy to reference study guide with information covering the most commonly tested topics. This book is compiled based on ACS curriculum outlie making it helpful for medical students interested in surgery, general surgery residents, and practicing general surgeons. For each disease process, we include the relevant points of the history and physical, work-up, staging, treatment options, key surgical steps, and post-operative care. The unique format we use makes this book optimal for quick referencing and self-study. While this book was initially designed as a tool to study for the oral boards, it will also be extremely useful for residents and practicing surgeons as a quick reference guide in daily practice to brush up on procedural steps or the work up of complex conditions"-- Provided by publisher.

    Summary: All European countries, including those that have recently joined the European Union or are candidates for membership, currently show a clear trend towards an increasing number of accidental injuries. This holds true for a range of injuries, including accidents among the elderly, sports injuries, and trauma due to traffic accidents. The increase in the number of injuries is accompanied by rising expectations among patients, who anticipate good functional results even after serious injuries. Despite these developments, trauma surgery is not yet established as an independent field in all European countries. Against this background, there is a clear need for a book that covers the state of the art in trauma surgery. This volume, which focuses on basics in trauma surgery is intended to help to meet this need. It will also serve to harmonize the practice of trauma surgery within the European Union and to prepare for the UEMS EBSQ trauma surgery.

    Jeremy A. Greene.
    Summary: Generic drugs are now familiar objects in clinics, drugstores, and households around the world. We like to think of these tablets, capsules, patches, and ointments as interchangeable with their brand-name counterparts: why pay more for the same? And yet they are not quite the same. They differ in price, in place of origin, in color, shape, and size, in the dyes, binders, fillers, and coatings used, and in a host of other ways. Claims of generic equivalence, as physician-historian Jeremy Greene reveals, are never based on being identical to the original drug in all respects, but in being the same in all ways that matter. How do we know what parts of a pill really matter? Decisions about which differences are significant and which are trivial in the world of therapeutics are not resolved by simple chemical or biological assays alone. Questions of therapeutic similarity and difference are also always questions of pharmacology and physiology, of economics and politics, of morality and belief. Greene chronicles the social, political, and cultural history of generic drugs, narrating the evolution of the generic drug industry from a set of mid-twentieth-century "schlock houses" and "counterfeiters" into an agile and surprisingly powerful set of multinational corporations in the early twenty-first century. The substitution of bioequivalent generic drugs for more expensive brand-name products is a rare success story in a field of failed attempts to deliver equivalent value in health care for a lower price. Greene's history sheds light on the controversies shadowing the success of generics: problems with the generalizability of medical knowledge, the fragile role of science in public policy, and the increasing role of industry, marketing, and consumer logics in late-twentieth-century and early twenty-first century health care.

    Introduction: The same but not the same
    What's in a name?
    No such thing as a generic drug?
    The sciences of similarity
    Laws of substitution
    Paradoxes of generic consumption

    Summary: This book explains the genetic basis of a wide range of dental disorders, including dental caries, periodontitis, congenital anomalies, malocclusions, orofacial pain, dental implant failure, and cancer. Such conditions are typically multifactorial or complex, with involvement of more than one gene as well as environmental influences. A sound grasp of this framework is ever more important, given the emergence of consumer genomics, including direct-to-consumer genetic testing. Dental professionals now need to understand why one person is susceptible to a particular oral health condition while a first-degree relative either does not develop the condition or does so in a less severe form. Knowledge of how genes operate in the susceptible host is essential if patients are to be offered accurate advice about their risks. The information provided in this book will assist in the delivery of effective personalized dental care through optimization of preventive strategies. It will enable the practitioner to explain the extent to which a patients condition is pure "bad luck", whether that bad luck can be changed by behavioral choices, and how many of our behaviors are influenced by genes.

    Summary: Will I end up just like my parent? Will the children get it too? Why is this happening to me? The adult patient diagnosed with or at risk for a neurogenetic disease has many questions and concerns for the genetic counselor, the neurologist, and other practitioners. Because of the emotional and potentially life-altering impact of these diseases on the patient and family, counseling can be especially challenging. A rare hands-on guide to the subject, Genetic Counseling for Adult Neurogenetic Disease deals with core issues that differentiate adult neurogenetic counseling from its more familiar pediatric counterpart. This innovative book with accompanying videos is designed to fill in deficits in this area typical of training programs in genetic counseling (which have pediatrics and prenatal concentrations) and neurology (which rarely cover genetic counseling). For each condition featured, chapters include a detailed overview of genetic symptoms, diagnostic criteria, and management, plus guidelines for asking, and answering, pertinent questions. The major concentration, however, is on genetic counseling issues and case histories illustrating these issues. As an added dimension, the accompanying videos depict representative issues and challenges in genetic counseling for specific diseases in addition to the basics of a neurological examination. Among the conditions discussed: Movement disorders, including Parkinson's disease. Dementias, including Alzheimer's disease. Stroke. Motor neuron diseases. Neuropathies and channelopathies. Adult muscular dystrophies. Neurocutaneous syndromes. Plus a section on neurological and neuropsychological evaluation. This is information that will stay relevant as technologies change and genetic understanding evolves. Genetic Counseling for Adult Neurogenetic Disease offers advanced clinical wisdom for genetic counselors as well as neurologists, neuropsychologists, and other referring clinicians.

    Summary: "Rapid increases in tests and technologies, media attention, and the expansion of genetic medicine and testing beyond conditions that are exclusively genetic in nature to common chronic illnesses with both genetic and environmental components (e.g., diabetes, heart disease, cancer), have raised demand for genetic counselling services and changing the scope of practice. Genetic counselors help individuals and families understand complex medical information, including diagnosis, prognosis, management options, risk, and heredity issues. They aid patients in decision-making while respecting ethical, familial, and cultural standards"-- Provided by publisher.
