    This book reviews recent key, hard-won successes and findings from recent biomedical research. Written by one of the most ardent defenders of the public trust in science, it provides an accessible, detailed look at successes in translational biomedical and clinical research. The author provides an optimistic, forward-looking view for the possibility of change for the public good, cutting through the controversy and gets to very core of each topic. The public can be optimistic about the future of medicine, but only if they learn the facts of these advances, and learn what their doctors should be expected to know.

    Highly referenced, and filled with interviews from experts and people directly involved in the research behind the new facts in each chapter, this book is a rich source of information on advances in biomedicine that you will want to share with your family & friends.

    This is a one-of-a-kind book: combining easy-to-understand science, in-the-trenches political warfare, and inspirational stories. It aims to give hope to individuals and families who suffer from chronic disease or disability; to point out how ordinary people can make an extraordinary difference in the battle to ease suffering and save lives through supporting medical research; to share in “people talk” some of the amazing progress already achieved in the new field of stem cell research; to show how even such a magnificent success as the California stem cell program is under constant attack from ideological groups; to offer medical research as a force for international cooperation; to suggest how cure research lessens the need for the mountainous costs of endless care.Unparalleled background: the author has been involved in virtually every important stem cell battle (state, national, and international) since embryonic stem cell research began. The author works closely with Robert N. Klein, sponsor of the California stem cell program, the largest source of such stem cell research funding in the world. In addition, the author is an award-winning teacher as well as writer, and seeks to entertain as well as educate. His book is not only substantive, but also fun.The book would be a treasured gift: for anyone suffering an “incurable” illness or who is a caregiver for a loved one; for a college student considering a rewarding career in biomedicine; for scientists who want to protect and enhance their research funding; and for anyone who wants to see government respond to the needs of its citizenry. Chronic disease and disability are a prison: cure is the triumphant escape — wheelchairs should be for temporary occupancy only.

     mprove medical and developmental outcomes in high-risk infants with evidence-based management strategies

    "Beyond the NICU" is the first book to deliver practical, evidence-based strategies for healthcare providers caring for the NICU graduate during convalescence and after discharge. It is a guide to the successful transition of a high-risk infant from intensive care to the intermediate-level nursery, and then, to help the child thrive outside of the hospital in a home environment.

    To advance the standard of care of these vulnerable patients, "Beyond the NICU" draws together clinically focused guidelines to improve patient outcomes and reduce hospital readmissions. Drawing on an international team of respected authorities, "Beyond the NICU" provides the strategies necessary to ensure the success of convalescing NICU graduates in both inpatient and outpatient settings. Doody's Review! Score: 95/100 
    Description
    This is a nearly 1,000-page softcover book written by over 100 contributors on convalescent neonatal care and post-discharge care of the high-risk infant. The format is similar to other neonatal handbooks (Neonatology: Management, Procedures, On-Call Problems, Diseases, and Drugs, 7th edition, Gomella, et al. (McGraw-Hill, 2013); Manual of Neonatal Care, 7th edition, Cloherty et al. (Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 2011)), but it emphasizes transitional care of the sick infant. 
    Purpose
    The purpose is to provide "practical, evidence-based strategiesfor the NICU graduate during convalescence and after discharge." The book functions like a practical handbook for clinicians in the NICU, covering almost all aspects of neonatal care, but emphasizing convalescent care. This is an area that has not been well covered in other neonatal books, and this book meets the objectives. 
    Audience
    The audience is NICU caregivers at all levels and of all disciplines. The book is written in outline format and emphasizes care rather than pathophysiology. The senior editor, his three consultants, and many of the contributors are recognizable names in the field. 
    Features
    The 51 chapters are grouped into four sections. After an introductory section which includes chapters on the role of the primary care provider for the NICU graduate, the book covers most aspects of care of preterm and term infants in the next two sections. A final section on developmental care includes chapters on early intervention and palliative care. Although the book is supposed to emphasize convalescent and post-discharge care, much of the second and third sections deals with standard early diagnosis and treatment of common neonatal issues, which adds significant length to the book. The book is at its best when it sticks to its title and emphasizes care "beyond the NICU." Helpful appendixes include discharge checklists, home equipment, and even billing coding for the NICU graduate. Illustrations and tables are sparse, but some are unique and very helpful. 
    Assessment
    This is a unique neonatal book in its emphasis on convalescent and post-discharge care for the sick neonate. It should become a standard text for clinicians in this field and, as it matures in subsequent editions, should abbreviate the acute care sections and concentrate on its title.

    Unic printre textele medicale, Manualul Oxford de Medicina Clinica (ediția a zecea) reprezinta un material complet si concis pentru specializarile principale ale medicinei si ofera o abordare holistica, centrata pe pacient. Editia a zecea prezinta informatii-cheie actualizate, iar capitolele privind gastroenterologia, bolile infectioase, neurologia si radiologia au fost complet revizuite. Abordarea tematica se suprapune cu evaluarea clasica a fiecarui caz: anamneza si examenul obiectiv, apoi descrierea patologiei pe aparate si sisteme, cu exemple, scheme, tabele si imagini, care aduc valoare practicii medicale.

    Apreciat de medici de peste trei decenii, Manualul Oxford de Medicina Clinica continua sa fie un ghid cu adevarat indispensabil pentru practica medicinei moderne.


     Prefata la editia in limba romana

    „Pornind de la prima pagina, medicul cu experienta sau in formare descopera un nou prieten: o carte sintetizată, bine organizată tematic, atractiva, care expune intr-o combinatie unica elementele de detaliu privind diagnosticul si tratamentul. Sistematizata in 19 capitole, manualul porneste de la un scurt istoric filozofic al domeniului, luand in discutie repere majore ale filozofiei medicale, dar si aspecte etice importante. Principiile medicinei bazate pe dovezi si ale statisticii medicale fac parte din acelasi capitol initial.

    Abordarea tematica se suprapune cu evaluarea clasica a fiecarui caz: anamneză si examenul obiectiv, apoi descrierea patologiei pe aparate si sisteme, cu exemple, scheme, tabele si imagini, care aduc valoare practicii medicale.

    Temele speciale sunt evidentiate prin casete specifice, la care se face trimitere ori de cate ori este necesar. Realizate excelent din punct de vedere grafic, imaginile sunt foarte sugestive, intregind armonios informatia din text si tabele. Manualul include informatii de ultima ora, foarte bine structurate in tabele si algoritmi, care ofera practicianului un sprijin permanent in decizia medicala. Din loc in loc se regasesc istorioare din viata curenta a practicianului sau repere istorice ale domeniului, care fac lectura captivanta.

    Traducerea carții Oxford Handbook of Clinical Medicine a beneficiat de implicarea unui grup de specialisti entuziasti, care au adaptat informatiile la terminologia clasica romaneasca, realizand un text fluent, atractiv si precis. Multumim tuturor celor care au dedicat timp si energie pentru a face posibila aparitia acestui manual in limba romana.

    Sunt convins ca acest volum reprezinta un instrument util atat pentru medicul cu experiența, cat si pentru cel aflat la inceputul carierei, fiecare gasind deopotrivă un prieten de nadejde în Manualul Oxford de Medicina Clinica.

    Va dorim lectura placuta!

    Prof. Dr. Corin Badiu”

    Rheumatoid Arthritis and Proteus explores the idea that Rheumatoid arthritis is caused by a urinary tract infection as a result of Proteus bacteria. Rheumatoid arthritis is a severe, painful and crippling disease affecting millions of people throughout the world, especially women. Genetic studies over the last 30 years have shown that individuals who possess the white cell blood groups HLA-DR1/4 carry a susceptibility sequence and are more likely to develop the disease. This book uses the methods of Sir Karl Popper, the philosopher of science, to present 12 “Popper sequences” which have been identified to indicate that Proteus is the causative agent of Rheumatoid Arthritis. Rheumatoid Arthritis and Proteus proposes that Anti-Proteus therapies should be followed as early as possible to prevent the crippling and irreversible joint deformities that occur in Rheumatoid Arthritis.

    This book is a fully updated and revised second edition of a highly successful text in which a new concept of knowledge mining, based on explication and transfer of interventional knowledge of experts, has been implemented. The dedicated training program that is set out will serve the needs of all interventional operators, whether cardiologists, vascular surgeons, vascular specialists, or radiologists, enabling them to achieve a consistent expert level across the entire broad spectrum of catheter-based interventions. Operator skills – and in particular decision-making and strategic skills – are the most critical factors for the outcome of catheter-based cardiovascular interventions. Currently, such skills are commonly developed by the empirical trial and error method only. The explicit teaching, training, and learning approach adopted in this book permits the rapid transfer of interventional knowledge and enables individual operators to negotiate steep learning curves and acquire complex skills in a highly efficient manner. It will thereby offer invaluable assistance in meeting successfully the challenges of modern cardiovascular care.

  • Laboratory Models for Foodborne Infections

    1,18700lei 1087.00 lei

     Resulting from ingestion of inappropriately prepared or stored foods containing pathogenic viruses, bacteria, fungi and parasites, foodborne infections have become a significant source of human morbidity and mortality worldwide in recent decades. This may be largely attributable to the remarkable popularity of convenient, ready-to-eat food products, the dramatic expansion of international food trades, and the continuing growth of immuno-suppressed population groups. Although anti-microbial treatments have played a crucial part in the control of foodborne infections in the past, the emergence and spread of anti-microbial resistance render the existing treatments ineffective. Additionally, our limited understanding of the molecular mechanisms of foodborne infections has thwarted our efforts in the development of efficacious vaccines for foodborne pathogens. 

    Given the obvious benefits of laboratory models in foodborne disease research, a great number of experiments have been conducted toward the elucidation of host-pathogen interactions in and pathogenic mechanisms of foodborne infections. Forming part of the Food Microbiology series, Laboratory Models for Foodborne Infections presents a state-of-the-art review of laboratory models that have proven valuable in deciphering the life cycle, epidemiology, immunobiology, and other key aspects of foodborne pathogens. 

    Written by scientists with respective expertise in foodborne pathogen research, each chapter includes a contemporary summary of a particular foodborne viral, bacterial, fungal, or parasitic infection in relation to its life cycle, epidemiology, clinical features, pathogenesis, host-pathogen interactions, and other related aspects. Besides providing a trustworthy source of information for undergraduates and postgraduates in food microbiology, Laboratory Models for Foodborne Infections offers an invaluable guide for scientists and food microbiologists with interest in exploiting laboratory models for detailed study of foodborne infections.

    The definitive guide to surgical management of epilepsy in pediatric patients

    This fully revised and updated second edition of Pediatric Epilepsy Surgery, edited by internationally renowned pediatric neurosurgeons and epilepsy surgery experts Oğuz Çataltepe and George Jallo, fills a void in the literature, encompassing the full spectrum of topics related to the surgical treatment of intractable epilepsy and seizures in children. The prodigiously illustrated book and its accompanying videos feature contributions from distinguished specialists in several different countries across a wide range of disciplines.

    From epidemiology, genetics, pathology, preoperative electrophysiological assessment and neuroimaging to state-of-the-art surgical approaches, this remarkable resource covers the full depth and breadth of surgical management of pediatric epilepsy. Topics include awake anesthesia, intracranial stimulation and mapping techniques, temporal and extratemporal epilepsy surgery techniques, insular, multilobar and hemispheric surgery approaches, and diverse disconnection, neuromodulation, and ablative procedures. Insights are provided on postoperative issues including seizure control, neuropsychological and psychosocial outcomes, surgical failure and re-operation, and much more.

    Key Features

    ·         A review of topographic anatomy of the cerebral cortex and white matter with numerous illustrations provides enhanced understanding of eloquent anatomy.

    ·         Discussion of cutting-edge techniques such as stereo-electroencephalography, multi-modality imaging and tractography, endoscopic and laser ablation approaches in hypothalamic hamartomas, peri-insular quadrantotomy, and various hemispherotomy approaches.

    ·         Overview of common cortical stimulation and mapping techniques including magnetic and electrical stimulation modalities, functional MRI, and the WADA test.

    ·         13 videos demonstrate seizure semiology, stimulation, awake surgery, hemispherotomy, amygdalohippocampectomy, and endoscopic corpus callosotomy.

    This state-of-the-art resource is a must-have for epilepsy surgeons and epileptologists. It will also greatly benefit neurosurgeons, neurologists, clinical neuropsychologists, electrophysiologists, neuroradiologists, residents, fellows, and medical students involved in the assessment and surgical management of epilepsy in pediatric patients.
