Genetics of Rare Autoimmune Diseases

Genetics of Rare Autoimmune Diseases

The main aim of this volume is to provide an updated overview of the genetic basis of a group of complex disorders that are considered rare individually, but show a relatively high prevalence on the whole in developed countries: the rare autoimmune diseases. These are chronic disorders that involve long and expensive treatments with considerable side effects that may dramatically reduce the quality of life of affected people. Therefore, shedding light into their pathologic mechanisms is a major concern given their growing social and economic awareness and impact.

General sections include different chapters on single entities as systemic lupus and sclerosis, Behçet’s disease, Sjogren’s syndrome and polymiositis, and sections devoted to autoimmune vasculitis, hepatic autoimmune conditions, as well as those affecting the nervous system, and a concluding chapter in which the shared predisposition amongst all diseases is discussed. All the chapters are given a homogeneous scheme in which the authors explain the clinical singularities of every disease and report the recent breakthrough discoveries related to them, giving a critical interpretation and suggesting future perspectives. All contributors are renowned researchers with high expertise in each disease. Due to the exponential increase in our understanding of the genetic causes of these complex diseases, a major advance in biomedical discovery is taking place. However, most of the achievements in this field are very recent and there is a lack of bibliography gathering them together. This book is thus filling a gap and will prove a useful companion to clinicians in the first place (internists, rheumatologists, clinical immunologists, and hematologists) but also to basic and applied researchers.

This book describes the genetic diagnostic entities of neuromuscular disorders. Each neuromuscular syndrome is presented clinically as a case study, accompanied by text reviewing different molecular defects, DNA research and differential diagnosis.

 

This collection of neuromuscular disorders features the different clinical phenotypes related to each genotype and are representative of the whole spectrum of a genetic muscle disorder, helping the clinician and neuromuscular physician to make a diagnosis. Key points for each genetic disease are identified to suggest treatment, when available, or the main clinical exams useful in follow-up of patients.

 

Genetic Neuromuscular Disorders: A Case-Based Approach is aimed at neuromuscular physicians and neurology residents.

Dan Hartl once again takes students on the exciting journey of learning about modern genetics in an updated seventh edition of Essential Genetics and Genomics. With carefully chosen topics to help students attain scientific competency, Dr. Hartl expertly covers the fundamentals of genetics from the perspective of genomics, including gene transmission, mutation, expression, and regulation. New and updated Stop & Think problems, Key Concept checks, and Human Connection feature boxes throughout chapters, along with extensive end-of-chapter review and study material that encourages students to analyze and apply new skills, further emphasize the text’s focus on student success. The seamless integration of “molecular genetics” and “classical genetics” coupled with the copious practice and problem-solving opportunities make Essential Genetics and Genomics, Seventh Edition a unique resource for learning and applying genetics to our world.

To ensure students are prepared for introductory genetics, a new online Readiness Assessment is available to complete prior to diving into the material. Students simply answer the online questions to obtain a personalized score with tailored areas to focus their review. Students are then directed to the color-coded Readiness Review section in the back of the text to practice the areas where study is needed. Sections include Math in Genetics, Science Prerequisites, and Thinking Like a Scientist. Never has learning genetics been so straightforward!
