    Intelegerea mecanismelor imunologice indreptate impotriva melanocitelor benigne si maligne reprezinta un subiect relevant pentru cercetare in momentul actual, intrucat creeaza premisa dezvoltarii de noi terapii imunologice atat in melanom, cat si in vitiligo, cu rezultate promitatoare.

    In practica, reactiile imunologice antimelanocitare pot fi studiate in diferite situatii clinice: in vitiligo, unde procesele imunologice sunt supraexprimate; in nevii Sutton, unde mecanismele imunologice sunt adecvate; in melanom, in care imunosupresia locală impiedica de cele mai multe ori fenomenele antitumorale sa actioneze eficient. Lucrarea prezenta reuneste multe dintre studiile autoarei referitoare la aceste mecanisme fiziopatologice, realizate si publicate in ultimii zece ani in teza de doctorat, precum si proiectele postdoctorale si articolele de specialitate. Realizeaza totodata actualizarea materialelor cu cele mai recente informatii din literatura medicala cu privire la: structura sistemului imun cutanat si a functiei principalelor componente ale acestuia; mecanismele prezentei in autoimunitate, autoinflamatie si imunitatea antitumorala cutanate; reactiile imunologice indreptate impotriva melanocitelor benigne si maligne in vitiligo, in melanom (regresie) si in nevii melanocitari (nevii Sutton).

    THE NEW YORK TIMES NUMBER ONE BESTSELLER

    SHORTLISTED FOR THE WELLCOME BOOK PRIZE 2017

    ‘Dramatic and precise… [A] thrilling and comprehensive account of what seems certain to be the most radical, controversial and, to borrow from the subtitle, intimate science of our time… He is a natural storyteller… A page-turner… Read this book and steel yourself for what comes next’
    Bryan Appleyard, Sunday Times

    The Gene is the story of one of the most powerful and dangerous ideas in our history, from bestselling, prize-winning author Siddhartha Mukherjee.

    Spanning the globe and several centuries, The Gene is the story of the quest to decipher the master-code that makes and defines humans, that governs our form and function.

    This is an epic, moving history of a scientific idea coming to life, by the author of The Emperor of All Maladies. But woven through The Gene, like a red line, is also an intimate history – the story of Mukherjee’s own family and its recurring pattern of mental illness, reminding us that genetics is vitally relevant to everyday lives. These concerns reverberate 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.

    The story of the gene begins in an obscure Augustinian abbey in Moravia in 1856 where a monk 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 post-war biology. It reorganizes our understanding of sexuality, temperament, choice and free will. This is a story driven by human ingenuity and obsessive minds – from Charles Darwin and Gregor Mendel to Francis Crick, James Watson and Rosalind Franklin, and the thousands of scientists still working to understand the code of codes.

    Majestic in its ambition, and unflinching in its honesty, The Gene gives us a definitive account of the fundamental unit of heredity – and a vision of both humanity’s past and future.

  • L'épilepsie : 100 questions/réponses

    L'épilepsie est une maladie fréquente qui affecte environ 500 000 patients en France. Cette pathologie neurologique bénigne dans la grande majorité des cas peut néanmoins avoir des répercussions psychosociales, professionnelles et familiales majeures. Elle demeure souvent méconnue, voire taboue, et peut constituer pour certains patients une source d'ostracisme permanent. Face à cette maladie, les patients épileptiques se sentent parfois mal renseignés et isolés. La connaissance étant la base de la compréhension et de l'acceptation, cet ouvrage est avant tout destiné aux patients épileptiques dont les questions restent en suspens et à leur entourage désireux de les aider et de les soutenir. Constitué à partir de questions simples émanant tout à la fois des patients, de leurs proches et du personnel soignant, il aborde différents domaines de la vie des patients épileptiques concernant la défi nition et la compréhension de la maladie (mécanismes, causes, facteurs facilitants, évolution), les traitements anti-épileptiques à disposition (types de médicaments, effets secondaires, quand et comment les prendre, nécessité ou non de les prendre régulièrement, chirurgie de l'épilepsie) et surtout la gestion de la vie au quotidien (peut-on être enceinte ? peut-on conduire ? faire du sport ? quels sont les métiers recommandés ? à éviter ? quelles sont les aides financières ? etc.).

    There are occasions when a story told from a personal viewpoint can illuminate a profession. Alfred Sommer's epidemiological memoir is such a book. Adventurous, illuminating, and thought provoking, "Ten Lessons in Public Health" is more than the story of one man's work. It tells the tale of how epidemiology grew into global health. The book is organized around ten lessons Sommer learned as his career took him around the world, and within these lessons he explains how the modern era of public health research was born. Three themes emerge from Sommer's story: the duty to help your fellow human beings by traveling to places where there are problems; the knowledge that data-driven research is the key to improving public health; and the need to persevere with sensitivity and strength when science and cultural or sociological forces clash. Nothing in this compelling, sometimes controversial, history is glossed over, as the book's goal is to explain when and why public health efforts triumph or fail. Readers will travel to Bangladesh, Iran, Indonesia, South America, and the Caribbean, where they will learn about spreading epidemics, the aftermath of storms, and vexing epidemiological problems. Sommer reveals the inner politics of world health decisions and how difficult it can be to garner support for new solutions. Triumph, tragedy, frustration, and elation await those who set off on careers in public health, and "Ten Lessons in Public Health" is destined to become a classic book that puts the field into perspective.

    With so many medical tests and treatments and so much scientific and medical information – some of it contradictory – how can people make the best medical decisions? Most medical decisions, it turns out, are based on common sense. In this short and easy-to-read book, Dr. Phillip K. Peterson explains the ten rules of internal medicine. Using real case examples he shows how following the rules will help consumers make good decisions about their medical care. "Get Inside Your Doctor's Head" providesadvice about such questions as when to seek treatment, when to get another opinion, and when to let time take its course. Turn to the Ten Rules when you are weighing your doctor's recommendations about diagnostic tests and treatments and use them to communicate more effectively with your doctor. As with all rules, the Ten Rules of Internal Medicine have occasional exceptions – and when evidence suggests that you are an exception, the relevant rule should be broken. Follow the Ten Rules to make decisions in the increasingly complicated medical world when you need guidance about health matters for yourself and your loved ones.

    Am pornit la drum cu dorinta de a aduce un instrument de lucru care, tinand cont de situatia actuala din Romania, sa delimiteze testarile cu adevarat necesare de cele facultative sau complet inutile. Un alt rol al sau este facilitarea obtinerii unei solutii cat mai rapide si corecte in dilema: este sau nu permis in timpul sarcinii acest antibiotic? Dar acest vaccin?

    De ce o asemenea initiativa? Pentru ca nu suntem un popor al regulilor si al masurii in ceea ce facem asa ca avem in acelasi timp:

    gravide ce ajung sa nasca fara sa stie din timp ca sunt infectate cu VHB sau cu HIV astfel incat sa se poata da o sansa in plus sanatatii copiilor lor, dar si gravide suprainvestigate incat rezultatele testelor sunt contradictorii sau imposibil de interpretat

    medici care recomanda gravidelor fara indicatie serologie de Listeria sau alte teste inutile, dar si medici care nu recomanda nicio testare

    gravide care repeta de mai multe ori aceleasi teste intr-un interval de timp de cateva saptamani si ajung de multe ori sa nu mai creada in rezultatele acestora si sa actioneze la intamplare 

    medici care induc gravidei decizia de intrerupere a sarcinii pe baza unei interpretari fanteziste a rezultatelor testarilor recomandate de ei, dar si medici care neglijeaza sa transmita interpretarea acestor rezultate gravidei si sa ii faca recomandarile necesare.

    Pe parcursul elaborarii acestui ghid am realizat tot mai mult ca avem un bun prilej de a incerca sa facem din el si un instrument de lucru impotriva utilizarii excesive si/sau eronate de antibiotice in infectiile caracteristice si in cele frecvente la gravida/lauza.

    Lasand continutul ghidului sa indeplineasca rolul de instrument de lucru ne-am permis sa evidentiem unele obstacole in calea im­plementarii unei atitudini coerente in acest domeniu medical, sub forma de raspunsuri la cateva intrebari.

     Cand testam?

    Suntem inca una dintre acele state ale Uniunii Europene in care primul bilant al unei gravide se mai efectueaza cand travaliul s-a declansat. Despre planning si evaluare preconceptionala vorbim inca rar, iar sarcina este adesea privita drept o intamplare, un dar sau o problema; din pacate, si generalizarea evaluarii initiale a gravidei in primul trimestru ramane un deziderat de atins in anii ce vin.

     Cine recomanda testarile? Cine prescrie antibiotice, care anume si in ce situatii?

    La aceasta intrebare un raspuns unic este hazardat: ginecologul? Medicul de familie? Infectionistul? De fapt, raspunsul nu ar mai avea nicio relevanta daca ar exista un consens in privinta a ceea ce este necesar sa fie testat. Este insa evident ca actualul circuit, in care pe fluxul medic de familie – ginecolog – infectionist, de la ultima veriga se poate decide reluarea ciclului pentru testari omise la pasii anteriori sau se ajunge la inlocuirea/intreruperea administrarii unui antibiotic prescris gravidei in mod eronat/excesiv, este nefunctional. 

     

    Ce se testeaza?

    in domeniul patologiei infectioase se aplica insa foarte bine regula lui „aici si acum“; de aceea, si testarile pentru infectiile cu potentiala transmitere maternofetala au un continut specific situatiei din fiecare regiune. A recomanda anumite teste „dupa ureche“ si a trimite apoi gravida cu rezultatele la interpretare „la un infectionist“ poate expune la cateva riscuri:

    pune in dificultate infectionistul in a furniza interpretari unor testari inutile sau fara semnificatie pentru situatia actuala a sarcinii

    expune medicul ginecolog riscului de scadere a credibilitatii in fata gravidei daca infectionistul se vede nevoit sa prescrie teste omise in bilantul initial

     Cine deconteaza testarile?

    Nu toata raspunderea in privinta derapajelor acestor testari apartine lipsei de educatie a gravidei in acest domeniu si/sau deficientelor profesionale ale medicului sau curant. De multe ori am intalnit gravide care aveau o lista de teste recomandate si neefectuate; cel mai adesea iti spun – „nu am avut bani ca sa fac aceste analize“.  Daca ne referim doar la testele cu adevarat utile, majoritatea sunt asigurate in mod gratuit pentru toate gravidele din Romania, dar unele nu. De aici se desprind cel putin doua idei:

    - necesitatea de a sustine efectuarea gratuita a tuturor acelor teste cu adevarat necesare, beneficiul medical si cel economic fiind cert;

    - necesitatea limitarii recomandarilor la testarile justificate, fara a incarca lista de analize cu alte teste inutile dar care costa, ceea ce va determina uneori ca gravida sa renunte la efectuarea oricarui test

    We have all experienced itch, whether from insect bites or dry skin, but millions of people worldwide have chronic or even intractable itch. Just like chronic pain, chronic itch interferes with function – even with quality of life. "Living with Itch" offers relief, drawing on the authors' vast knowledge of itch, the suffering it causes, and available treatments. Itch researchers and clinicians Drs. Gil Yosipovitch and Shawn G. Kwatra explain what itch is and the cascade of physiological events that cause us to experience it. They describe the many skin diseases, from atopic dermatitis (also known as eczema) to psoriasis, and conditions like chronic kidney disease, lymphoma, HIV, and neuropathies that cause itch. "Living with Itch" provides information on preventing itch as well as topical and systemic therapies, regardless of what's causing the itch. Patient and parent narratives explain how itch affects their lives and how they cope with a symptom that can, with medical and social support, be managed.

    Înainte de a învăța electrocardiogramă trebuie bine înțeles ce așteptăm de la ea; de cele mai multe ori electrocardiograma nu este diagnosticul ci o treaptă spre diagnostic, dar o treaptă ușor de pășit dacă știi să calci. Există evident excepții în ambele sensuri: uneori electrocardiograma este diagnosticul (preexcitația, aritmia etc.), iar alteori nu te ajută cu nimic (de cele mai multe ori dacă încerci să găsești în electrocardiogramă ceea ce nu poate da). Ar fi o eroare să considerați electrocardiograma normală (cel mai dificil traseu pentru studenții la examen) în această categorie; o electrocardiogramă normală spune foarte multe! Și mai rău ar fi dacă, posedând un aparat electrocardiografic cu diagnostic computerizat, v-ați baza pe diagnosticul calculatorului; am consumat în timp mai multă energie corectând diagnosticele calculatorului decât cea consumată pentru analiza “manuala” a traseului.

    Electrocardiograma este o reprezentare grafică a unui fenomen care se descrie vectorial și care pornește de la câteva axiome (datorate marelui Einthoven); majoritatea acestor axiome au fost fizic infirmate sau modificate în timp. Morala acestei constatări este că valoarea electrocardiogramei stă în comparație (fie că ne referim la traseele anterioare ale pacientului, fie ale altor pacienți cu aceeași condiție sau în lipsa lor, cu mai mică valoare, la modelul învățat despre cum trebuie să arate electrocardiograma în condiția dată). Obișnuiesc să recomand studenților mei să abordeze un traseu electrocardiografic în două etape: întâi să privească ca la un tablou și să-și facă o impresie generală, intuitivă, apoi să o uite pentru moment și să reevalueze sistematic traseul (ritmul atrial, conducerea atrioventriculară, depo- larizarea ventriculară, faza de repolarizare etc.) considerând mereu derivațiile sincrone împreună pentru a-și crea o imagine spațială. La cei pe care mi i-am apropiat și au avut răbdare cu mine (și reciproc) lucrurile au funcționat. Iar această metodologie trebuie aplicată indiferent că traseul pare simplu sau dificil. De altfel această terminologie este foarte subiectivă și ține mai mult de interpret decât de traseu. Nu o dată mi s-a cerut să prezint doar trasee „foarte interesante” (citește complicate) și am avut surpriza să constat cât de bine se descurcă unii la probleme delicate și cum se poticnesc la cele simple. Orice traseu electrocardiografic, cât de simplu, poate fi informativ pentru situația pacientului și valoros pentru învățare.

    De la premisa că orice traseu electrocardiografic, cât de simplu, poate fi informativ pentru situația pacientului și valoros pentru învățare, ne-am hotărât să prezentăm celor dornici de a-și schimba condiția, trasee din colecția noastră, așa cum se înregistrează ele în viața reală, mai mult sau mai puțin “perfecte”, mai mult sau mai puțin complicate. Intenția noastră este să alcătuim câteva volume separate. Acest prim volum conține un număr de electrocardiograme simple și câteva mai complicate, comentate succint. De la început trebuie să fie clar că această publicație nu se vrea, în nici un caz un manual de învățare de electrocardiograme ci doar o culegere de “exerciții pentru acasă” așa cum, demult, fiecare dintre noi o făcea la matematică. El este destinat oricui crede că intenția noastră ii folosește, fie el student, rezident, tânăr sau experimentat medic...

    Almost daily we hear news stories, advertisements, and scientific reports that promise genetic medicine will make us live longer, enable doctors to identify and treat diseases before they start, and individualize our medical care. But surprisingly, a century ago eugenicists were making the same promises. The "Science of Human Perfection" traces the history of the promises of medical genetics and of the medical dimension of eugenics. The book also considers social and ethical issues that cast troublesome shadows over these fields. Keeping his focus on America, science historian Nathaniel Comfort introduces the community of scientists, physicians, and public health workers who have contributed to the development of medical genetics from the nineteenth century to today. He argues that medical genetics is closely related to eugenics, and indeed the two cannot be fully understood separately. He also carefully examines how the desire to relieve suffering and to improve ourselves genetically, though noble, may be subverted. History makes clear that as patients and consumers we must take ownership of genetic medicine, using it intelligently, knowledgeably, and sceptically, lest pernicious interests trump our own.

    The surgeon Thomas Pettigrew (1791–1865) was interested in all aspects of antiquity. He gained fame in society through his mummy-unwrapping parties, and his History of Egyptian Mummies is also reissued in the Cambridge Library Collection. His interest in the early history of medicine is evidenced by this edition of a work by John Hall, which was published by the Percy Society in 1844. Hall was a surgeon, born 1529/30, who published this work in 1565 as an appendix to his translation of the work of the thirteenth-century surgeon Lanfranc of Milan. Little is known about Hall except that he practised medicine in Maidstone, Kent, and had published acrostic verses. He was vociferous in his indignation against fraudulent medicine, and this work describes nine incidents where quacks, both male and female, had visited Maidstone and offered miraculous cures to the gullible: Hall himself was involved in prosecuting some of them.

    The Quaker philanthropist Samuel Tuke (1784–1857) was the grandson of William Tuke, the founder in 1796 of the Retreat at York, a pioneering asylum for the insane which championed compassionate care and the abolition of physical restraints. Samuel succeeded his grandfather in the management of the Retreat in 1822, but before that was already active in promoting its principles of humane treatment, and publicising the appalling conditions in which 'pauper lunatics', whose families could not afford better care for them, were confined. The publicity generated by his pamphlets and letters to newspapers drew public attention to the problem, and led to a reforming Yorkshire magistrate inviting Tuke to advise on the building of a new asylum at Wakefield. This 1815 book of 'practical hints' was intended to guide the potential architects to offer both inmates and attendants an environment which promoted physical and mental health.

    Product description

    Review

     

    "Practicing Psychodynamic Therapy is an excellent complement to Summers and Barber's earlier evidence-based guide, Psychodynamic Therapy. The psychodynamically formulated case studies are fascinating, and beautifully demonstrate the struggles and learning curve of novice therapists, describing in a refreshingly honest way their successful--and less-than-successful--interventions with patients who suffer from obsessionality, depression, trauma, and more. The down-to-earth and clear exposition of both theory and clinical cases makes this an exceptionally valuable book for beginning therapists, as well as undergraduate and graduate students being exposed to psychodynamic concepts and practice for the first time. This volume convincingly dispels any myths about the relevance of psychodynamic therapy for the practice of psychotherapy today."--Stanley B. Messer, PhD, Graduate School of Applied and Professional Psychology, Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey

    "This compelling, clearly written book addresses important questions for clinicians starting out in the world of mental health: What is psychodynamic psychotherapy? Why should a well-informed clinician learn it? How does it work? Jargon-free clinical cases--written by clinicians from varied training backgrounds who utilize a wide range of psychodynamic techniques--depict treatment with patients who suffer from panic disorder, major depression, combinations of depression and anxiety, and personality disorders. A 'must read' for clinicians of all orientations, this book will help to solidify psychodynamic therapy and techniques in the contemporary psychotherapeutic landscape."--Barbara Milrod, MD, Department of Psychiatry, Weill Cornell Medical College

    "Referencing the emerging body of research on the efficaciousness of psychodynamic theory, this volume is organized around 12 cases presented by early-career psychiatrists, psychologists, and social workers. The diverse cases bring to light the unique relationship between psychotherapist and client and offer an in-depth look at individual approaches taken within a psychodynamic framework. Each of six core psychodynamic problems identified by Summers and Barber is covered in the cases. With its evidence-based focus, carefully selected cases, and emphasis on creating a change-oriented therapeutic alliance, this casebook will be an invaluable resource for mental health professionals for years to come."--Aaron T. Beck, MD, University Professor Emeritus of Psychiatry, Perelman School of Medicine, University of Pennsylvania

    "This accessible clinical casebook illustrates how patients and therapists can work together to address and resolve the most common core problems encountered in therapeutic practice. Twelve refreshingly candid treatment narratives demonstrate specific techniques for working through these problems at different stages of therapy, offering useful strategies for catalyzing and assessing change. Both novice and experienced clinicians will find much of use in this book."--Diana Diamond, PhD, Doctoral Program in Clinical Psychology, City University of New York, and Senior Fellow, Personality Disorders Institute, Weill Medical College of Cornell University

    "Summers and Barber have gathered a series of eloquent and detailed cases that illustrate and enrich the approach elaborated in their earlier book, Psychodynamic Therapy: A Guide to Evidence-Based Practice. In this casebook, contributing authors openly share their clinical experience in a personal and candid fashion, offering a window into the very private relationships that develop between therapists and their patients. Indispensable for students of psychotherapy and their teachers, the book provides a rich opportunity for clinical learning and reflection."--Eve Caligor, MD, Department of Psychiatry, Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons

    "Therapists searching for psychodynamic concepts and techniques that will help them better conceptualize their patients' problems will benefit greatly from this book. The book begins with a summary of the authors' framework and then follows with 12 extensive case studies in which their model is carefully applied, assisting clinicians in identifying and working with each patient's core psychodynamic patterns. This is an outstanding, essential book for all dynamically oriented clinicians."--Walter N. Stone, MD, Department of Psychiatry (Emeritus), University of Cincinnati School of Medicine

    From reviews of the previous edition:

    ‘All in all a very handy book for the student, the resident or other professionals working with children. I had a lot of fun reading it.’

    ‘The book is full of wonderful illustrations, and funny and profound advice with quotations, like the words of Sir Dominic Corrigan (1853): "The trouble with many doctors is not that they do not know enough but that they do not see enough", or the advice to teach thy tongue to say" "I do not know" (Rabbi Moses Maimonides or Rambam, 1135-1204). I have used this book for my final medical year paediatrics exams, the DCH and the MRCP and it has been a great help. It reminds us of the most important and basic things - history and examination, and of course a friendly demeanour.’

  • Free Clinics. Local Responses to Health Care Needs

    110.00 lei

    In community after community, pro bono and student-run health clinics have sprung up over the past 30 years, providing critically needed care to medically underserved populations. "Free Clinics" is a mosaic formed by accounts of such clinics around the United States. These wide-ranging narratives � from urban to rural, from primary care to behavioral health care � provide examples that will assist other communities seeking to find the model that best fits their needs. The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act has improved access to health care for many Americans, but millions remain and will remain uninsured or underinsured. Free clinics provide non-emergency care to those in need. Nationwide, professionals can be found offering volunteer services at these clinics. Contributors to this volume � typically people with personal familiarity (as clinicians or area residents) with the clinics they write about � cover a variety of topics, including a review of the literature, data-driven accounts of clinic usage, and ethical guidelines for student-run clinics. They describe the motivations of clinic staff, the day-to-day work of a family nurse practitioner working in clinics and teaching at a university, the challenges and rewards of providing health care for homeless people, and more. Student-run clinics are the topic of the second section: in addition to providing care to a small subset of those in need, student-run clinics are an important venue for training future clinicians and helping the seeds of altruism with which many enter their professions to germinate. "Free Clinics" will be useful to policymakers, students and faculty in public health and health policy programs, and clinicians and students who are embarking on launching new clinics.

    The surgeon Thomas Pettigrew (1791–1865) was interested in all aspects of antiquity, and gained fame in London society through his mummy-unwrapping parties. (His History of Egyptian Mummies is also reissued in the Cambridge Library Collection.) His interest in the early history of medicine is evidenced by this work, published in 1844, which describes the various forms of superstition which the science of medicine had always attracted since ancient times. Pettigrew considers alchemy and astrology, and the use of talismans, amulets and charms, as well as the history of Egyptian, Greek and Roman medicine, and some modern developments, including 'sympathetical cures' and the rejoining of severed fingers and ears. A chapter is devoted to the belief in the efficacy of the 'royal touch' against the King's Evil (scrofula), and another to the seventeenth-century faith healer Valentine Greatrakes, of whose alleged cures Pettigrew takes a robustly sceptical view.

    If you’re like a lot of us, for years you’ve been making resolutions and promises about becoming physically fit. Despite all your good intentions, though, somehow it never quite goes according to plan. But you can break that cycle. In Fit at Last, bestselling business author Ken Blanchard and fitness authority Tim Kearin show how Ken, at age seventy-three, finally was able to make lasting improvements in his health and fitness, including dropping over thirty pounds in a year. In each chapter, Ken shares the very personal story of his ups and downs - involving, among other things, a puppy, a Hawaiian tour bus full of widows, and a fifty-year college reunion - while Tim offers expert advice and wisdom gained from over forty years in the fitness industry. Following through on your efforts to get fit requires leadership - personal leadership. Early on, Ken realized the same concepts he’d been using for years to help people lead organizations also could help him stick to his program. Here, you’ll learn how Ken and Tim applied the Situational Leadership II approach to set SMART goals, diagnose Ken’s progress in each of the six core areas of fitness, and match them with the leadership styles necessary to get Ken to the next level in each area. Certainly there is a wealth of excellent fitness advice here - but ultimately, this is a book about commitment. People don’t fail because they don’t know what to do - they fail because they just don’t do it. Using the tools in this book, you’ll be able to move from simply being interested in fitness to making a lasting commitment - one that will add a spring to your step, a smile to your face, and years to your life.

  • Ebola: An Evolving Story
    La comanda in aproximativ 4 saptamani

    The book is a narrative of the unfolding of the Ebola virus disease outbreak from a scientific view point. The author provides an analysis of the scientific basis of public health policies that have influenced the public's, and the medical community's, abilities to understand the virus and the disease. This is done in the context of providing insights into the biology of the virus, and exploring open questions, including its likely modes of transmission. The author has included citations from the scientific literature and the press, as well as quotes from expert interviews. The book will help sort out the fact from fiction, given the confusion that arose after the virus arrived in the US. The author used his objective research skills and knowledge of evolutionary genetics and molecular biology to find out what was known, and what questions remained unanswered, and even what questions remained unasked.Written in an accessible style, it is intended for the educated general public, scientists, policy makers, health care workers, and politicians. It delves into the problems of trying to derive a logic-based understanding of a highly lethal emerging disease in 2014, when research funding cuts have gutted research institutions, and when public health institutions really were woefully unprepared. It is a highly distinct narrative analysis that is sure to stimulate new research and thinking in public policy. It will inform thousands of people of the nature of the virus, how it works, in terms they are likely to be able to understand. It will allow others to rapidly catch up with the story of Ebola.

  • Story Within. Personal Essays on Genetics and Identity
    La comanda in aproximativ 4 saptamani

    In "The Story Within", authors share powerful experiences of living with genetic disorders. Their stories illustrate the complexities involved in making decisions about genetic diseases: whether to be tested, who to tell, whether to have children, and whether and how to treat children medically, if treatment is available. More broadly, they consider how genetic information shapes the ways we see ourselves, the world, and our actions within it. People affected by genetic disease respond to such choices in varied and personal ways. These writers reflect that breadth of response, yet they share the desire to challenge a restricted sense of what "health" is or whose life has value. They write hoping to expand conversations about genetics and identity – to deepen debate and generate questions. Whether they or their families are affected by Huntington's disease, Alzheimer's disease, cancer, genetic deafness or blindness, schizophrenia, cystic fibrosis, Tay-Sachs, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, fragile X, or Fanconi anemia, their stories remind us that genetic health is complicated, dynamic, and above all, deeply personal.

    PKU (phenylketonuria) is a genetic disorder that causes severe cognitive impairment if it is not detected and treated with a strict and difficult diet. In a lifetime of practice, most physicians will never encounter a single case of PKU, yet every physician in the industrialized world learns about the disease in medical school and, since the early 1960s, the newborn heel stick test for PKU has been mandatory in many countries. Diane B. Paul and Jeffrey P. Brosco's beautifully written book explains this paradox. The development of state programs for early detection of and treatment for PKU is deservedly considered a great public health success story. Advocates have traded on this success to urge expanded newborn screening, to defend basic research in genetics, and to confront proponents of genetic determinism. When deployed for these purposes, treatment for PKU is typically represented as a simple matter of adhering to a low-phenylalanine diet. In reality, the challenges of living with PKU are daunting. In this first general history of PKU, a historian and a pediatrician explore how a rare genetic disease became the object of an unprecedented system for routine testing. "The PKU Paradox" is informed by interviews with scientists, clinicians, policy makers, and individuals who live with the disease. The questions it raises touch on ongoing controversies about newborn screening and what happens to blood samples collected at birth.

    This joint reissue comprises two works on military medicine, providing instruction on the treatment of ailments common to soldiers, and methods for preventing their occurrence. The title work, written by Charles Alexander Gordon (1821–99) and published in 1873, is followed by A Guide to Health for the Use of Soldiers by fellow surgeon R. C. Eaton (1842–1902), which first appeared in 1890. Intended to be read by infantrymen and officers, both works offer succinct and practical advice on topics ranging from malaria to drunkenness. The texts take slightly different approaches in their presentation of advice: Gordon adopts a crisp and formal style, while Eaton incorporates instructive medical facts in his brief yet fluent explanations. Together, the works provide an effective exposition of problems and practicalities that would assume tremendous significance decades later in the trenches of the First World War.

    In 1997, Stanley B. Prusiner received a Nobel Prize, the world's most prestigious award for achievement in physiology or medicine. That he was the sole recipient of the award for the year was entirely appropriate, for his struggle to identify the agent responsible for ravaging the brains of animals suffering from scrapie and mad cow disease, and of humans with Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease, had been waged largely alone and in some cases in the face of strenuous disagreement. In this book, Prusiner tells the remarkable story of his discovery of prions – infectious proteins that replicate and cause disease but surprisingly contain no genetic material – and reveals how superb and meticulous science is actually practised using talented teams of researchers who persevere. He recounts the frustrations and rewards of years of research and offers fascinating portraits of his peers as they raced to discover the causes of fatal brain diseases. Prusiner's hypothesis, once considered heresy, now stands as accepted science and the basis for developing diagnoses and eventual cures. He closes with a meditation on the legacy of his discovery: What will it take to cure Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, Lou Gehrig's and other devastating diseases of the brain?

    Monografia "Repercusiuni miocardice si coronariene in boli cronice " constituie o sinteza de peste 50 de ani desfasurata de prof. Dr. Nicolae Balta, membru al Academiei de Stiinte Medicale, distins cercetator din cadrul fostului Institut de Fiziologie Normala si Patologica "Daniel Danielopolu" al Academiei Romane.

     Lucrarea este o edificatoare sursa de documentare din domenul implicarii bolii cronice in patologia miocardo-coronariana, concept ce are la baza interdependenta in conditii fiziologice si patologiceale ale  functiilor miocardice si dinamica circulatiei coronare, componente ale aparatului cardiovascular care nu pot functiona bine decat impreuna. Este conceptul miocardo-coronarian cu valoare euristica ce poate contribui la estimarea si evaluarea unor aspecte importante intr-un domeniu de importanta covarsitoare in privinta cunoasterii si aprofundarii cadrului nosologic si a interrelatiilor morfofunctionale miocardice si coronariene in bolile cronice.

     Conceptul miocardo-coronarian reflecta just realitatea in domeniul enuntat conferind medicului capacitatea unei atitudini de ansamblu comprehensiv in aprofundarea si evaluarea diagnosticului de studiu evolutiv, a conditiei terapeutice si precizarea prognosticului bolilor cronice, domeniu de mare insemnatate al medicinii interne contemporane, care preocupa si alerteaza lumea medicala mondiala, socio-economica si politica. Conceptul miocardo-coronarian mai este relevant si ilustrativ pentru analiza medicinii omului sanatos, activ, educat si demn in desfasurarea activitatii sale.

     Prezentarea celor 14 capitole este realizata in baza unei metodologii elaborate conform conceptului miocardo-coronarian, care, reprezinta metode de studiu si de cercetare a mecanismelor de producere a fenomenelor patologice miocardice si coronariene in cursul evolutiei bolilor cronice. Acaeasta modalitate de prezentare confera lucrarii un caracter unitar al legaturilor dintre patologia miocardo-coronariana si bolile cronice care au incidenta de crestere rapida in acest secol.
