Since the first randomized controlled studies were conducted on medical circumcision to assess their effectiveness on reducing HIV transmission, health systems have made considerable progress in adopting this practice in their HIV/AIDS and sexual reproductive health policies. As such, medical circumcision is being adopted as an additional intervention measure to support previous practices for reducing HIV infections in various countries or settings. James Kityo's pioneering book examines contexts, processes, policy projections, and likely engagements by reviewing sexual reproductive health policies or practices, and literature on medical circumcision, and identifies existing opportunities and challenges. His book also explores the medical, gender, ethical, socio-economic, and human rights dimensions of medical circumcision as an HIV/AIDS prevention method. Following peer-reviewed studies, Kityo found compelling evidence documenting the effectiveness of medical circumcision in reducing HIV transmission, and discusses this evidence in the context of HIV/AIDS in a developing health system in Sub-Saharan Africa. The author concludes that there is a range of opportunities from research and current practice to enable policy makers to adopt medical circumcision and other interventions at their disposal in order to reduce infections from HIV and AIDS-related deaths. The author suggests feasible recommendations for implementing successful HIV/AIDS prevention programs in developing nations' health systems, including medical circumcision's gradual inclusion in health practices; stakeholder support; an elaborate review of this intervention by women, politicians, religious communities, and funding agencies. The author introduces a guided action plan, which can be used as a launch pad to enhance the learning process in the integration of medical circumcision in existing health practices.

No current book tells the clinician how to handle a patient with infertility and abnormal semen analysis who arrives in front of him or her in the infertility clinic. The time is right for a new book that looks at the clinical aspects of this subject only and which is directed specifically at the clinicians. One must remember that the majority of clinicians that treat male infertility are gynaecologists who, unlike the author have had no training whatsoever in urology. The problem of examining let alone treating the infertile man is therefore very daunting.

25 Jahre nach der deutschen Wiedervereinigung unternimmt dieser Band den Versuch in deutsch-deutscher Perspektive die Fachgeschichte der Urologie zwischen 1945 und 1990 an ausgewahlten Beispielen darzustellen. Die hier analysierten Entwicklungen liegen zum Teil nur zwei oder drei Jahrzehnte zuruck und umfassen damit den Erfahrungshorizont der meisten Leser. Im Mittelpunkt der Untersuchungen stehen die strukturellen Bedingungen urologischer Tatigkeit sowie die personellen, institutionellen und intellektuellen Verflechtungen zwischen Urologen in der Bundesrepublik und in der DDR. Neben rein fachhistorischen Beitragen vermitteln Beitrage von Zeitzeugen individuelle Perspektiven und lassen ein sehr vielfaltiges Bild entstehen.
This book effectively summarizes our knowledge of recent advances in prostate cancer. It focuses on our state-of-the-art understanding of risk factors, prevention, detection, prognosis and treatment of prostate cancer and identifies basic science findings that are being translated into clinical practice. In addition, the book singles out key areas of research that have potential for clinical translation. Both basic scientists and clinicians will be invited to provide up-to-date reviews in each area of prostate cancer. During the last decade the pace of clinical discovery and the scientific advances in prostate cancer have been very rapid. For instance, currently there are more than 100 drugs in the pharmaceutical pipeline that have the potential for clinical management of prostate cancer. Therefore, it has been very difficult for clinicians and basic scientists to keep pace with the field as a whole. Recently, some of these discoveries are already having an impact on clinical practice. For example, the discovery of the androgen receptor gene amplification in prostate cancer has led to the development of a "super-antiandrogen," which is being tested in clinical trials. Also, recent knowledge of androgen synthesis in prostate cancer cells has led to clinical trials with steroid-metabolism inhibitors. Finally, robotic surgery has also dramatically changed clinical practice. Thus, this important book serves to provide readers with a one-stop overview of the field of prostate cancer research and its translation into the clinical arena.
This updated title is the ideal reference book for residents and fellows, with step-by-step pictures and only the essential prose.
