Lymph Nodes (Demos Surgical Pathology Guides) 1st Edition

The Demos Surgical Pathology Guides series presents in summary and visual form the basic knowledge base that every practicing pathologist needs every working day. Series volumes cover the major specialty areas of surgical pathology, and coverage emphasizes the key entities and diagnoses that pathologists will see in practice, and that they must know whether in training or practice. The emphasis is on the basic morphology with newer techniques represented where they are frequently used. The series provides a handy summary and quick reference that any pathology resident or fellow will find useful. Experienced practitioners will find the series valuable as a portable “”refresher course”” or review tool.

Lymph Nodes presents the full gamut of lymph node disorders and diagnoses that pathologists commonly see in practice. Traditional morphology and histopathologic features, coupled with clinical data, are emphasized. Chapters are complemented with both high-power images for analysis of cytologic features of lymph node cells as well as low-power images for assessment of lymph node architecture.

The chapters cover infectious lymphadenopathies, reactive lymphadenopathies, lymphadenopathies associated with systemic disorders, lymph node inclusions, spindle cell neoplasms of lymph nodes, foreign body lymphadenopathies, mature B-cell neoplasms, precursor lymphoid neoplasms, Hodgkin lymphoma, and more. Lymph Nodes is highly illustrated throughout and provides residents and clinicians with a quick reference for rotation or review.

Protein Expression in Down Syndrome Brain (Springer Medicine) 2001st Edition

31zop5krfdl-_sx385_bo1204203200_

When we worked on Down Syndrome brain in the past we have been focus­ ing on adult brain. This was a major step forwards as most work on Down Syndrome was carried out on fibroblasts or other tissues and, moreover, we introduced proteomics to identify and quantify brain protein expression. We considered evaluation of brain protein expression in Down Syndrome brain by and by more important than gene hunting at the nucleic acid level realiz­ ing the long unpredictable way from RNA to protein. The availability of fetal samples along with the proteomic appproach stimulated and reinforced studies on Down Syndrome brain. And indeed, it was found out that some observations on aberrant protein expression in adult Down Syndrome brain could not be verified in the fetal samples indi­ cating that neurodegeneration in adult Down Syndrome brain may have been responsible rather than trisomy 21. Using brains from the early second trimester of gestation led to the generation of a series of clues for the under­ standing of aberrant wiring of the brain in Down Syndrome and enabled the determination of altered key functions in early life; e. g. undetectably low drebrin was observed in Down Syndrome cortex, an integral constituent and marker for dendritic spines, main effectors of cross-talk between neurons. In addition, evaluation of the nature of the neuronal deficits in terms of neuro­ transmission markers could be established as well as neuronal density in fetal Down Syndrome cortex.

Learning from Paediatric Patient Journeys

51r3xh3tgl-_sx329_bo1204203200_

Good healthcare is about more than making a diagnosis and giving the correct medical treatment – the experience of those going through the system is hugely important. As a result, the use of patient stories or “narratives” in learning is gathering significant support and interest. This is a collection of such narratives from children and from the parents of children with a range of long-term or complex conditions. They would be useful for medical students and instructors, but also for anyone working for children with chronic and complex conditions, including nurses and other allied health professionals, as well as psychology students. There are also essays on points arising from a parent and from those involved as a tutor and as a student.  A free sample chapter is available via the Downloads / Updates tab on our website.

Reversibility of Chronic Degenerative Disease and Hypersensitivity, Vol. 3

41nsrntg6cl-_sx330_bo1204203200_

Encyclopedic in scope, Reversibility of Chronic Degenerative Disease and Hypersensitivity, Volume 3: Environmental Manifestations of the Neurocardiovascular Systems draws deeply from clinical histories of thousands of patients. It focuses on clinical syndromes within the musculoskeletal, neurological, and cardiovascular systems with a special focus on vascular dysfunction and heart failure treatment.

The book explores mechanisms of chemical sensitivity and chronic degenerative disease, their manifestations, diagnosis, and approaches to reverse dysfunction. It covers a wide variety of topics including environmental sensitivity due to external pollutants, environmental control for reducing total body load, pollutant damage to vascular perfusion, altered blood volume, fluctuations of oxygen extraction, effects of endocrine on the vascular system, effects of pollutants on myocardial cells, and mechanisms in vascular damage.

The book also discusses in detail a wide variety of clinical manifestations including vasculitis, cardiac arrhythmias, cardiac metabolic syndrome, myocarditis, atherosclerosis, heart failure, urticaria, and anaphylaxis. Treatment for heart failure is also discussed. The third volume of a five-volume set, the book provides an essential resource for health care providers diagnosing and treating chemical sensitivity and chronic degenerative disease.
