Diabetes Mellitus

Joslin's Diabetes Mellitus
Publisher: Lippincott Williams and Wilkins | ISBN: 0781727960 | edition 2004 | CHM |1224 pages | 31,8 mb

We are pleased to present this 14th edition of Joslin's Diabetes Mellitus. This textbook continues to evolve and address the newest and most important insights into this very old but very challenging disease. Indeed, as this book goes to press, despite multiple medical and scientific advances, we are facing a worldwide epidemic of diabetes. This involves a steady increase in type 1 diabetes and almost an exponential increase in type 2 diabetes. The latter is accompanied by a parallel increase in obesity, the metabolic syndrome, and other closely related disorders. Thus we are at a fascinating point in the evolution of diabetes and a fascinating point in the evolution of a book devoted to this disease.
The first edition of the Joslin textbook was published in 1916, a single-handed contribution by a man of extraordinary dedication, vision, and energy, Dr. Elliott P. Joslin. Dr. Joslin began his practice in 1898 in the pre-insulin era, and in this setting, developed a unique understanding of the natural history of diabetes. This perspective was clearly evident in the first edition, which was published some five years before the discovery of insulin by Banting, Best, Macleod, and Collip.

Detection of Bacteria, Viruses, Parasites and Fungi

Detection of Bacteria, Viruses, Parasites and Fungi: Bioterrorism Prevention By Mariapia Viola Magni
Publisher: Springer 2010 | 510 Pages | ISBN: 9048185424 , 9048185432 | PDF | 4 MB

When somebody mentions terrorism attack the attention is immediately concentrated on military type attacks such as bombs, kamikazes or similar kinds and nobody thinks about the possible existence of more sophisticated means such as the use of toxic gas or agents which may be transmitted by contaminated food, water and air and may interest a large number of people. This book intends to put the attention on this problem and to demonstrate how easy it is in particular to contaminate food.
Four different sectors were analysed: bacteria, virus, parasites and pollutants and for each the possible agents and the facilities for creating diseases in many people through contaminated food are described. Also some species of common bacteria like Escherichia coli or Enterococci, present in many foods, may produce toxins, causing diarrhoea in a large number of persons as happened in China in 1991 when 224,000 persons were affected by contaminated ice cream. On the other hand parasites can also be transmitted by uncooked fish and reptile meat.
New diagnostic methods are also illustrated which in comparison to traditional methods permits quick analysis of many samples.

HIV/AIDS in U.S. Communities of Color

HIV/AIDS in U.S. Communities of Color
By Valerie Stone, Bisola Ojikutu, M. Keith Rawlings, Kimberly Y. Smith

* Publisher: Springer
* Number Of Pages: 310
* Publication Date: 2009-06-10
* ISBN-10 / ASIN: 0387981519
* ISBN-13 / EAN: 9780387981512

Product Description:
More people in communities of color are contracting, living with, and being treated for HIV/AIDS than ever before. In 2005, 71% of new AIDS cases were diagnosed in people of color. The rate of HIV infection in the African-American community alone has increased from 25% of total cases diagnosed in 1985 to 50% in 2005. Latinos similarly comprise a disproportionate segment of the AIDS epidemic: though they make up only 14% of the U.S. population, 20% of AIDS cases diagnosed in 2004 were Latino/a.

Though the number of racial and ethnic minority HIV/AIDS cases continues to grow, the health care community has been unable to adequately meet the unique medical needs of these populations. African-American, Latino/Latina, and other patients of color are less likely to seek medical care, have sufficient access to the health care system, or receive the drugs they need for as long as they need them.

HIV/AIDS in Minority Communities acknowledges the prevalence of HIV/AIDS within minority communities in the U.S. and strives to educate physicians about the barriers to treatment that exist for minority patients. By analyzing the main causes of treatment failure and promoting respect for individual and cultural values, this book effectively teaches readers to provide responsive, patient-centered care and devise preventive strategies for minority communities. Comprehensive chapters contributed by physicians with extensive experience dealing with HIV/AIDS in minority communities cover issues as far-reaching as: anti-retroviral therapy; dermatologic manifestations and co-morbidities of the disease in patients of color; unique risks to women and MSMs of color; participation of minority cases in HIV research; and substance abuse and mental health issues.

BACKGROUND: Low antithrombin levels may compromise the anticoagulant
effect of heparin and heparin-related compounds, such as fondaparinux.
METHODS: We compared the anticoagulant effect of 10 concentrations of
fondaparinux added to plasma samples with normal range (n = 25,
antithrombin 95.4% ± 9.2%) and low antithrombin (n = 22, antithrombin
45.5% ± 13.2%) levels, using the Heptest coagulation assay.

RESULTS: Heptest clotting time was shorter at any given fondaparinux
concentration in the antithrombin-deficient samples, indicating less
anticoagulant effect than in the group with normal antithrombin
levels. At a high fondaparinux concentration, a saturation effect is
observed with no further increase in Heptest clotting time. Addition
of antithrombin concentrates results in a shift of the dose-response
curve. When antithrombin concentrate was added, Heptest clotting time
increased up to a fondaparinux concentration of 10 µg/mL.

CONCLUSIONS: In the conventional prophylactic and therapeutic dose
range, not only treatment with antithrombin concentrates but also an
increase in fondaparinux dose normalizes the anticoagulant effect. A
saturation effect is observed at high fondaparinux concentrations.
Higher levels of antithrombin lead to an exaggerated effect of
fondaparinux on Heptest.

Movement Disorders

Movement Disorders: Handbook of Clinical Neurophysiology, Vol 1
Publisher:Elsevier | Pages:758 | 2003-12-09 | ISBN:0444507256 | PDF | 18 MB

The book is the first comprehensive description of the clinical neurophysiology of movement disorders. While movement disorders is a rapidly growing field, and clinical neurophysiology can be helpful, only single articles or selective or brief reviews have so far appeared. The book, as all books in the handbook series, is arranged with a set of detailed chapters on technique and a separate set of chapters on disorders. An international team of authors has been selected to provide the most expert descriptions.

Critical Care Medicine


John J Marini, Arthur P Wheeler, "Critical Care Medicine: The Essentials"
Lippincott Williams & Wilkins | 2009 | ISBN: 0781798396 | 720 pages | CHM | 16,1 MB

Critical Care Medicine is an "essentials" text intended for students and residents, though it is also read by practitioners and critical care nurses. It concisely covers all of the major areas in critical care, with a unique focus on pathophysiology underlying clinical disorders and how pathophysiologic concerns affect treatment options. Chapters are short and easy to read, with little redundancy due to the fact that Marini and Wheeler write almost the entire book themselves. Key Points are presented at the end of chapters. The Fourth Edition includes Controversies in Critical Care boxes in appropriate chapters, which briefly summarize controversial points and present opposing arguments. The authors make specific treatment recommendations in these controversial areas, and the boxes allow those recommendations to be placed in the context of a broader discussion.


Evolution of Sleep

Patrick McNamara, Robert Barton, Charles L. Nunn, "Evolution of Sleep: Phylogenetic and Functional Perspectives"
Cambridge University Press | 2009 | ISBN: 0521894972 | 500 pages | PDF | 2,3 MB

Research during the past two decades has produced major advances in understanding sleep within particular species. Simultaneously, molecular advances have made it possible to generate phylogenetic trees, while new analytical methods provide the tools to examine macroevolutionary change on these trees. These methods have recently been applied to questions concerning the evolution of distinctive sleep state characteristics and functions. This book synthesizes recent advances in our understanding of the evolutionary origins of sleep and its adaptive function, and it lays the groundwork for future evolutionary research by assessing sleep patterns in the major animal lineages.
