Human Embryonic Stem Cells: The Practical Handbook 1st Edition

[amazon template=iframe image2&asin=0470033568]

With this valuable practical guide, three members of the Harvard Stem Cell Institute have compiled and edited the definite handbook for the exciting new field of human embryonic stem cell research. The editors have gathered protocols from scientists with extensive reputation and expertise, describing and comparing currently used techniques for the culture of human stem cells and discussing the strengths and weaknesses of the different approaches.

Human Embryonic Stem Cells: The Practical Handbook contains the first centralised collection of methods used in human embryonic stem cell biology. The book covers the derivation of human stem cell lines, the obtaining of cells from human stem cell banks, the culturing and characterisation of the cells, and the differentiation of the cells in vitroand in vivo. Lastly, almost all of these protocols can also be used for analyzing and manipulating induced pluripotency iPS stem cells. This allows an even greater number of opportunities for those interested in purusing work in pluripotent stem cells, disease modelling, and other aspects of basic regenerative medicine research.

The novel and useful focus of this book sets it apart from other available books:

  • Compares and evaluates the protocols used in leading laboratories working on human embryonic stem cells
  • Centred solely on practical protocols for human (not mouse) embryonic stem cell research
  • Includes extensive troubleshooting sections
  • Addresses the different proclivities and behaviours of individual human embryonic cell lines
  • Contains techniques currently known only to a small number of specialised laboratories worldwide

This handbook represents an essential source of up-to-date practical information for all cell and developmental biologists working with human embryonic stem cells or wishing to enter the field. It is also essential reading for clinical researchers in areas such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and neurological diseases.

Human Embryo Transfer 1st ed

[amazon template=image&asin=8132211146]

This concise work on embryo transfer is yet another contribution to the persevering effort to disseminate latest information on the science and skill of performing a traumatic and successful embryo transfer. It is  the most critical culmination of the assisted reproductive technology (ART) stimulation cycle, and a rate-limiting step in dictating the success of treatment. The well-worded chapters draw the reader’s attention to significant aspects before initiating the actual embryo transfer, such as possible causes of failure at the embryo transfer stage, uterine evaluation, mock embryo transfer (ET), experience of the physician, and the use of ultrasound-guidance to monitor ET. The protocol for difficult transfers, variables that affect the success of ET, and the influence of the catheter used for ET have also been dealt with. The unique feature of this book is its pragmatic approach that can translate into solutions to the numerous frustrating ART failures that more often than not, may be attributed to an inefficient ET procedure. It helps the reader understand the integrity of embryo transfer, unravel its obvious simplicity and bridge the success between the several steps of ART. By highlighting the impeding problems associated with ET procedure and providing valid, scientific solutions, this stimulating edition will help the readers improve the ART success rates in their clinical practice.

About the Author

Molecular Genetics of Dysregulated pH Homeostasis

[amazon template=image&asin=1493916823]

Most biological reactions and functions occur within a narrow range of pH. Any changes in the pH have great impacts on the biological function at every level, including protein folding, enzymatic activities and proliferation, and cell death. Therefore, maintaining the pH homeostasis at the local or systemic level is one of the highest priorities for all multicellular organisms. Many redundant mechanisms are in place to maintain the pH homeostasis, a topic that is well covered in scientific literature and in medical textbooks.  However, when the pH homeostasis is disrupted in various physiological adaptations and pathological situations, resulting acidity may trigger significant pathophysiological events, and modulate disease outcomes. Therefore, understanding how various cells sense and react to acidity have broad impact in a wide variety of human diseases including cancer, stroke, myocardial infarction, diabetes, and renal and infectious diseases. In this book, many investigators have summarized the molecular genetics on the detailed mechanisms by which different mammalian cells sense and respond to acidity. These chapters cover the acidity with broad impact in biological understanding and human diseases and review various sensing mechanisms and cellular responses to pH alterations in both physiological (taste, pain) and pathological (ischemia and cancers) settings. Furthermore, the authors present a broad spectrum of investigative approaches to cellular response to acidosis in a wide variety of human diseases.

RNA and DNA Diagnostics (RNA Technologies)

[amazon template=image&asin=3319173049]

The aim of molecular diagnostics is preferentially to detect a developing disease before any symptoms appear. There has been a significant increase, fueled by technologies from the human genome project, in the availability of nucleic acid sequence information for all living organisms including bacteria and viruses. When combined with a different type of instrumentation applied, the resulting diagnostics is specific and sensitive. Nucleic acid-based medical diagnosis detects specific DNAs or RNAs from the infecting organism or virus and a specific gene or the expression of a gene associated with a disease. Nucleic acid approaches also stimulate a basic science by opening lines of inquiry that will lead to greater understanding of the molecules at the center of life. One can follow Richard Feynman’s famous statement “What I cannot create, I do not understand.”

Medical Genetics 1st Edition

[amazon template=image&asin=0071664386]

A complete introductory text on how to integrate basic genetic principles into the practice of clinical medicine

Medical Genetics is the first text to focus on the everyday application of genetic assessment and its diagnostic, therapeutic, and preventive implications in clinical practice. It is intended to be a text that you can use throughout medical school and refer back to when questions arise during residency and, eventually, practice. Medical Geneticsis written as a narrative where each chapter builds upon the foundation laid by previous ones. Chapters can also be used as stand-alone learning aids for specific topics. Taken as a whole, this timely book delivers a complete overview of genetics in medicine. You will find in-depth, expert coverage of such key topics as:

  • The structure and function of genes
  • Cytogenetics
  • Mendelian inheritance
  • Mutations
  • Genetic testing and screening
  • Genetic therapies
  • Disorders of organelles
  • Key genetic diseases, disorders, and syndromes

Each chapter of Medical Genetics is logically organized into three sections:

  1. Background and Systems – Includes the basic genetic principles needed to understand the medical application
  2. Medical Genetics – Contains all the pertinent information necessary to build a strong knowledge base for being successful on every step of the USMLE
  3. Case Study Application – Incorporates case study examples to illustrate how basic principles apply to real-world patent care

Today, with every component of health care delivery requiring a working knowledge of core genetic principles, Medical Genetics is a true must-read for every clinician.
