New Insights on Antiviral Probiotics: From Research to Applications 1st ed. 2017 Edition

51gebbrp3cl-_sx340_bo1204203200_

This book focuses on probiotics with antiviral activities. The “antiviral probiotic” is a new concept in medical sciences. Recently, studies have shown that antiviral probiotics can fight or prevent viral infections in many ways. The immunomodulation of mucosal immunity, production of antiviral compounds, virus trapping and the use thereof as vaccination vectors are the principal modes of action of antiviral probiotics. The author dedicates an entire chapter of the book to discussing the methods and techniques used to assess the antiviral activity of probiotic strains and their metabolites.

Handbook of Mindfulness: Culture, Context, and Social Engagement (Mindfulness in Behavioral Health) 1st ed. 2016 Edition

 

41efymg64hl-_sx350_bo1204203200_

This handbook explores mindfulness philosophy and practice as it functions in today’s socioeconomic, cultural, and political landscape. Chapters discuss the many ways in which classic concepts and practices of mindfulness clash, converge, and influence modern theories and methods, and vice versa. Experts across many disciplines address the secularization and commercialization of Buddhist concepts, the medicalizing of mindfulness in therapies, and progressive uses of mindfulness in education. The book addresses the rise of the, “mindfulness movement”, and the core concerns behind the critiques of the growing popularity of mindfulness. It covers a range of dichotomies, such as traditional versus modern, religious versus secular, and commodification versus critical thought and probes beyond the East/West binary to larger questions of economics, philosophy, ethics, and, ultimately, meaning.

Featured topics include:
  • A compilation of Buddhist meditative practices.
  • Selling mindfulness and the marketing of mindful products.
  • A meta-critique of mindfulness critiques – from McMindfulness to critical mindfulness
  • Mindfulness-based interventions in clinical psychology and neuroscience.
  • Corporate mindfulness and usage in the workplace.
  • Community-engaged mindfulness and its role in social justice.
The Handbook of Mindfulness is a must-have resource for clinical psychologists, complementary and alternative medicine professionals/practitioners, neuroscientists, and educational and business/management leaders and policymakers as well as related mental health, medical, and educational professionals/practitioners.

Biodemography of Aging: Determinants of Healthy Life Span and Longevity

41nb1hbri3l-_sx313_bo1204203200_

This volume is a critical exposition of the data and analyses from a full decade of rigorous research into how age-related changes at the individual level, along with other factors, contribute to morbidity, disability and mortality risks at the broader population level. After summarizing the state of our knowledge in the field, individual chapters offer enlightening discussion on a range of key topics such as age trajectory analysis in select and general populations, incidence/age patterns of major chronic illnesses, and indices of cumulative deficits and their use in characterizing and understanding the detailed properties of individual aging.
The book features comprehensive statistical analyses of unique longitudinal data sets including the unique resource of the Framingham Heart Study, with its more than 60 years of follow-up. Culminating in penetrating conclusions about the insights gained from the work involved, this book adds much to our understanding of the links between aging and human health.

Handbook of Anthropometry: Physical Measures of Human Form in Health and Disease 2012th Edition

41iopf8j-gl-_sx350_bo1204203200_

Although its underlying concept is a relatively simple one―the measurement of the human body and its parts―anthropometry employs a myriad of methods and instruments, and is useful for a variety of purposes, from understanding the impact of disease on individuals to tracking changes in populations over time. The first interdisciplinary reference on the subject, the Handbook of Anthropometry brings this wide-ranging field together: basic theory and highly specialized topics in normal and abnormal anthropometry in terms of health, disease prevention, and intervention. Over 140 self-contained chapters cover up-to-date indices, the latest studies on computerized methods, shape-capturing systems, and bioelectrical impedance, data concerning single tissues and whole-body variables, and reports from different areas of the world. Chapters feature helpful charts and illustrations, cross-references to related chapters are included, and key points are presented in bullet form for ease of comprehension. Together, the Handbook’s thirteen sections entail all major aspects of anthropometrical practice and research, including: Tools and techniques. Developmental stages, from fetus to elder. Genetic diseases, metabolic diseases, and cancer. Exercise and nutrition. Ethnic, cultural, and geographic populations. Special conditions and circumstances. The Handbook of Anthropometry is an invaluable addition to the reference libraries of a broad spectrum of health professionals, among them health scientists, physicians, physiologists, nutritionists, dieticians, nurses, public health researchers, epidemiologists, exercise physiologists, and physical therapists. It is also useful to college-level students and faculty in the health disciplines, as well as to policymakers and ergonomists.

The Human Microbiota and Chronic Disease: Dysbiosis as a Cause of Human Pathology 1st Edition

617fmpshoil-_sx346_bo1204203200_

Microbiota-associated pathology can be a direct result of changes in general bacterial composition, such as might be found in periodontitis and bacterial vaginosis, and/or as the result of colonization and/or overgrowth of so called keystone species. The disruption in the composition of the normal human microbiota, or dysbiosis, plays an integral role in human health and human disease.

The Human Microbiota and Human Chronic Disease: Dysbioses as a Cause of Human Pathology discusses the role of the microbiota in maintaining human health. The text introduces the reader to the biology of microbial dysbiosis and its potential role in both bacterial disease and in idiopathic chronic disease states.

Divided into five sections, the text delineates the concept of the human bacterial microbiota with particular attention being paid to the microbiotae of the gut, oral cavity and skin. A key methodology for exploring the microbiota, metagenomics, is also described. The book then shows the reader the cellular, molecular and genetic complexities of the bacterial microbiota, its myriad connections with the host and how these can maintain tissue homeostasis. Chapters then consider the role of dysbioses in human disease states, dealing with two of the commonest bacterial diseases of humanity – periodontitis and bacterial vaginosis. The composition of some, if not all microbiotas can be controlled by the diet and this is also dealt with in this section.  The discussion moves on to the major ‘idiopathic’ diseases afflicting humans, and the potential role that dysbiosis could play in their induction and chronicity. The book then concludes with the therapeutic potential of manipulating the microbiota, introducing the concepts of probiotics, prebiotics and the administration of healthy human faeces (faecal microbiota transplantation), and then hypothesizes as to the future of medical treatment viewed from a microbiota-centric position.

  • Provides an introduction to dysbiosis, or a disruption in the composition of the normal human microbiota
  • Explains how microbiota-associated pathology and other chronic diseases can result from changes in general bacterial composition
  • Explores the relationship humans have with their microbiota, and its significance in human health and disease
  • Covers host genetic variants and their role in the composition of human microbial biofilms, integral to the relationship between human health and human disease

Authored and edited by leaders in the field, The Human Microbiota and Human Chronic Disease will be an invaluable resource for clinicians, pathologists, immunologists, cell and molecular biologists, biochemists, and system biologists studying cellular and molecular bases of human diseases.
