Topographical and Pathotopographical Medical Atlas of the Human Body (Hardcover): Z. M. Seagal Topographical and Pathotopographical Medical Atlas of the Human Body (Hardcover)
Z. M. Seagal
R8,207 Discovery Miles 82 070 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

Written by an experienced and well-respected physician and professor, this new volume combines the entire previous four books, Ultrasonic Topographical and Pathotopographical Anatomy, and its three sequels, also available from Wiley-Scrivener, presenings the ultrasonic topographical and pathotopographical anatomy of the entire body, offering further detail into these important areas for use by medical professionals. This comprehensive and exhaustive medical atlas of topographic and pathotopographic human anatomy is a fundamental and practically important book designed for doctors of all specializations and students of medical schools. Here you can find almost everything that is connected with the topographic and pathotopographic human anatomy, including original graphs of logical structures of topographic anatomy and development of congenital abnormalities, topography of different areas in layers, pathotopography, computer and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of topographic and pathotopographic anatomy. You can also find here new theoretical and practical sections of topographic anatomy developed by the author himself which are published for the first time. They are practically important for mastering the technique of operative interventions and denying possibility of iatrogenic complications during operations. This important new volume will be valuable to physicians, junior physicians, medical residents, lecturers in medicine, and medical students alike, either as a textbook or as a reference. It is a must-have for any physician's library.

Aromatase Inhibitors (AIs) treat postmenopausal estrogen receptor positive tumours, which constitute the majority of breast cancer patients. This comprehensive volume brings together the current knowledge from different relevant areas, including molecular mechanisms and translational aspects of drug resistance in AIs. Topics covered include research, experimental , and clinical data specifically focused on AI resistance in breast cancer. The volume will include three sections. The first section covers general knowledge about aromatase inhibitors, including regulation of aromatase genes, and structure and function of aromatase protein. The second section provides the detailed mechanisms of resistance to AIs, while the third section explores prediction of resistance and potential strategies to overcome resistance. Breast cancer is the most common female cancer and AIs significantly improve treatments outcomes compatibly to previously used endocrine treatments. However 10-15% of post-operative patients develop a relapse during adjuvant treatment with AIs; about 25-50% of the patients do not respond to AIs in neo-adjuvant or metastatic setting, and the majority of metastatic patients who initially respond develop resistance within 3 years. There is an important need to understand these mechanisms of resistance in order to develop methods of preventing or overcoming the resistance to AIs, which will ensure a more successful outcome in treating breast cancer.

The mammalian hippocampus is a conserved region and probably one of the best-studied brain areas. However, the homologous regions in other vertebrates differ in the anatomical organization, but are still able to perform similar functions. In this special topic issue, international experts in evolutionary neuroscience discuss the homology of the hippocampus among fishes, amphibians, reptiles, birds, and mammals. The articles cover the history of hippocampal research, developmental patterns of gene expression in mammals, birds and reptiles, and the internal connectivity in adult birds and mammals. Furthermore it explores the role of the hippocampus in spatial navigation and memory, as well as its role in social cognition and in regulating the stress response. In addition to evolutionary neuroscientists, this publication is of special interest to all those studying the mammalian hippocampus, as it puts their structure of interest in a wider evolutionary context. It will also be relevant to behavioral ecologists and other behavioral biologists interested in navigation and memory across a range of species.

Cell-material interface plays a key role in the interaction of cells with artificial materials designed for construction of body implants or tissue engineering. Physical and chemical properties of the material surface, such as its polarity, wettability, electrical charge and conductivity, roughness and morphology, rigidity or elasticity as well as the presence of various chemical functional groups, strongly influence the cell adhesion. The latter is mediated by adsorption of cell adhesion-mediating molecules (eg: vitronectin, fibronectin, collagen, laminin, fibrinogen) from the serum of the culture medium or body fluids in appropriate spatial conformation or flexibility enabling the accessibility of specific sites on these molecules (eg: certain amino acid sequences or saccharide-based ligands) by adhesion receptors on the cell membrane (eg: integrins). After binding these ligands, the adhesion receptors are recruited into focal adhesion plaques, where they associate with cascades of various structural and signalling molecules, such as cytoskeletal proteins and kinases. By these cascades, the signal provided by the cell-material interaction is delivered to the cell nucleus. It influences the gene expression, and thus the further behavior of cells, manifested by their viability, synthesis of various molecules, proliferation, differentiation, functioning, immune activation, stress adaptation or cell death. This interdisciplinary review involves: (i) physical modifications of the material surface by plasma discharge, irradiation with ions or ultraviolet light and effects of these modifications on the surface wettability, electrical conductivity and formation of chemical functional groups influencing cell adhesion, (ii) deposition of organic or inorganic layers on the material surfaces, especially those nanostructured (eg: nanofibers of fibrin and extracellular matrix molecules, carbon nanoparticles, such as nanodiamonds, fullerenes and nanotubes, nanocomposite metal/C:H layers), (iii) functionalisation of the material surface with amino acids and oligopeptidic ligands for cell adhesion receptors (e.g., GRGDSG), (iv) effect of all these modifications on the extent and strength of adhesion of vascular and bone-derived cells, cell proliferation activity, switch between cell proliferation and differentiation, expression of cell-type specific markers of differentiation and other cell functions.

The year 1818 saw the publication of one of the most influential science-fiction stories of all time. Frankenstein: Or, Modern Prometheus by Mary Shelley had a huge impact on gothic horror and science-fiction genres, and her creation has become part of our everyday culture, from cartoons to Hallowe'en costumes. Even the name 'Frankenstein' has become a by-word for evil scientists and dangerous experiments. How did a teenager with no formal education come up with the idea for an extraordinary novel such as Frankenstein?

Clues are dotted throughout Georgian science and popular culture. The years before the book's publication saw huge advances in our understanding of the natural sciences, in areas such as electricity and physiology, for example. Sensational science demonstrations caught the imagination of the general public, while the newspapers were full of lurid tales of murderers and resurrectionists.

Making the Monster explores the scientific background behind Mary Shelley's book. Is there any science fact behind the science fiction? And how might a real-life Victor Frankenstein have gone about creating his monster? From tales of volcanic eruptions, artificial life and chemical revolutions, to experimental surgery, 'monsters' and electrical experiments on human cadavers, Kathryn Harkup examines the science and scientists that influenced Shelley, and inspired her most famous creation.
