Bubanovic I.

Book Description

The body of any animal can be viewed as a society or "ecosystem" whose individual members are cells, reproducing by cell division and organized into collaborative assemblies or tissues. In this "ecosystem", the cells are born, live and die under various forms of selection pressure such as territorial limitation, population size, source of nutrients provided, infectious agents, etc. The body is a highly organized society of cells whose main task is the maintenance of homeostasis of the whole organism. The failure of control mechanisms which make the cell the unit of society, marking the beginning of its "asocial" behaviour, is most frequently a malignant alteration. This process is not abrupt, nor is it based on a single event. It is, rather, a long-term process characterized mainly by mutation, competition and natural selection operating within the population of cells. The basic mechanisms controlling the cell sociability represent the first defence line against the altered cells, while the second line of defence is supposed to be made up of the immune system cells. Speaking in Darwinian terms, within the "ecosystem" of an organism, cells of the immune system operate as "predators" of the altered and mutated cells or cells infected by the intracellular parasites. The biological phenomena whose mechanisms are, at present, explored and largely understood, certainly had their own evolution. Searching for the origin and details of the evolution of "advanced solutions" as well as selection pressures that might justify their emergence and existence, we often fail to see that many such phenomena are, in fact, co-evolutionary by-products of "evolutionary innovations". In other words, the evolutionary emergence of "advanced solutions" is sometimes, if not always, accompanied by certain by-products and by the co-evolution of compensatory mechanisms acting as a counterbalance to these. An example of the evolution of "advanced solutions" is the evolution of adoptive immunity, and co-evolution of auto-immunity and alloimmunity. Alongside the diversification of the mechanisms of adoptive immunity, auto-immunity and alloimmunity gain attributes of the evolutionary by-products and become sources of selection pressure. To that effect, alloimmunity could be a source of very strong selection pressure in mammals, simply because it is directly connected with the reproductive efficacy. At the same time, new forms of selection pressure that are connected with adoptive immunity gave rise to new mechanisms controlling killer machinery of the immune system. Finally, the last in a line of by-products in the processes of evolutionary "modelling" and "re-modelling" of vertebrate immune systems can be regarded as the failure of anti-tumor immunity. There is now much evidence that tumors can be immunogenic. Tumor cells very often express antigens in a form recognizable by the host immune system, but most frequently without consequences on tumor progression. This has been shown in many experimental models and different experimental conditions. Immediate mechanisms for the escape of tumors from the immune response are very similar to mechanisms for the escape of the fetoplacental unit (as allograft) from the maternal immune response. The similarity between these two mechanisms is so significant that any randomness must be banished. Mechanisms of anti-tumor immunity in mammals are probably substantially different from mechanisms of anti-tumor immunity in other classes of vertebrates. Moreover, the type of most frequent tumors in non-mammalian vertebrates is also significantly different. Finally, the incidence of malignant tumors in non-mammalian vertebrates is significantly lower than the incidence of malignant tumors in mammals. These facts indicate that the mammalian immune system during the anti-tumor immune response is tricked by the similarity between tumor cells and trophoblast or other placental cells. From this aspect, anti-tumor immunity failure in mammals can be defined as an immunoreproductive phenomenon, which is developed under the evolutionary pressure of auto-immunity and alloimmunity/reproductive effectiveness. It may be a specific evolutionary approach in the rendering of anti-tumor immunity failure in mammals, and a new possibility for anti-tumor immunotherapy.

Cellular Origin and Life in Extreme Habitats and Astrobiology кн.6
Ред. Seckbach J.
Springer-Verlag; 2004; 665стр.; ISBN: 1402018134

Book Description

Origins: Genesis, Evolution and Biodiversity of Microbial Life in the Universe is the sixth unit of the book series Cellular Origins, Life in Extreme Habitats and Astrobiology (COLE) edited by Joseph Seckbach. In this book forty eminent scientists review their studies in the fields of Life from the beginning to the "Fact of Life". The history of Origin of Life and Astrobiology is well covered by these authors. Reviews cover the standard and alternative scenarios of the genesis of Life, while the chapters of "The First Cells" leading to the biodiversity and extremophiles of microbial Life. Among these extremophiles are the microbes living in the Life's limits, such as in high temperature, psychrophilic, UV radiation, and halophilic environments. The origin and history of Martian water is discussed followed by the possible biogeochemistry inside Titan. This new field of Astrobiology has been presented, from comets as a source of materials and Life on earth to the space for last Frontiers.

Lippincott, Williams & Wilkins; 1999; 2848стр.; ISBN: 0781716187

Book Description
...thoroughly updated and completely reorganized for greater accessibility...an authoritative, easy-to-use, and clinically relevant reference for students, residents, and clinicians.

Book Info
Johns Hopkins Univ., Baltimore, MD. Comprehensive textbook/reference for students and pediatric residents. Previous edition: c1994. New chapters include: gene therapy, genetic screening, measuring quality in care, international adoption, care of the transplant patient, neuroendocrine disorders, obesity, antiretroviral therapy, and prophylaxis for exposure to HIV. DNLM: Pediatrics.

ANNOTATION
The book contains predominantly black-and-white illustrations, with some color illustrations.

FROM THE PUBLISHER
The changes in this edition of Oski's Pediatrics: Principles and Practice reflect the momentous developments in practice patterns of pediatricians and the technology influencing health care for children. No longer is it possible to divide the practice of pediatricians into "Ambulatory Pediatrics" and "The Sick and Hospitalized Patient," as the titles of two sections from the first and second editions suggest. More than ever, very sick children are cared for in outpatient settings and at home, as well as in hospitals. We have retitled these sections "General Pediatrics" and "Diseases of Childhood" to include, in the former, the ongoing care pediatricians provide to infants and children of all ages who are generally healthy and, in the latter, those conditions that result in acute or chronic illness. This reconceptualization of the book to keep pace with current approaches and thinking has resulted in a thorough, fundamental revision. some chapters have been reoriented; some have been divided or condensed; all have been carefully updated to present the latest clinical and scientific information.

New chapters include:

Gene therapy
Genetic Screening
Measuring quality in pediatric care
International adoption
The general pediatrician's care of the transplant patient
Neuroendocrine disorders
Obesity in children
Antiretroviral therapy in pediatric acquired immunodeficiency syndrome
Prophylaxis for exposure to human immunodeficiency virus

...Perhaps the most obvious addition to the textbook is the Rapid Access Guide, which contains quick summaries of some 200 conditions important in the care of pediatric patients. This section is designed to provide pertinent summaries for the physician, resident, or student who needs a fast, information-filled overview. Each entry describes the etiology, clinical signs, useful studies, and treatment for the condition, as well as a reference to the more complete description found in the body of the book.

FROM THE CRITICS
Journal of the American Medical Association
...a valuable reference that suits the needs of clinicians, residents, and students.
Steve Dassel
This is an updated and reformatted edition of a respected and well-known general pediatric textbook. The reworked table of contents and the addition of a ""Rapid Access Guide"" should make it easier to use. It is aimed at the medical student, pediatric resident, and pediatrician, and covers the broad field of pediatrics. Simplicity of use seems to be a major goal. I found it difficult to access information about many topics such as television violence, car seats, daycare, and school readiness. The audience is broad. Medical students, house officers, and pediatricians will all find it useful. The editors and some 360 contributors include many well-recognized authorities in their field of expertise. More than a quarter of the book is devoted to neonatology (Part II). Part I is an overview of a wide variety of topics ranging from economics and ethics to genetics and a very good section concerning lab test evaluation. Parts III and IV deal with outpatient pediatrics and a traditional body system approach to disease. Part V is an appendix of material ranging from differential diagnosis to lab values. An update after five years seems reasonable and the explosion of information relating to genetics alone justifies another edition of this textbook. I was disappointed that I was not able to easily access information on topics as discussed above, but the overall comprehensiveness of this book makes it a valuable addition to the pediatrician's library.

From Booklist

Just as its title suggests, this work is a dictionary of more than 17,000 terms currently in use in the fields of biochemistry and molecular biology. Entries are uniformly concise, with entries for the most complex topics (such as protein) covering only about half a page. In a single alphabet, the dictionary includes topics and methods, chemical substances, and brief biographical entries of key scientists. The only illustrations are structure diagrams of the more complex chemical compounds. Appendixes help the reader understand scientific nomenclature and Greek symbols, list organizations and Web sites of interest in the field, and cover current hot topics in biochemistry. Despite its low price (especially for a science reference source), this dictionary is not for every library. Because it will require a significant scientific background to be able to understand the content of this work, it is beyond the reach of the casual reader. Libraries supporting research or college-level study in the field will find it useful, but other libraries will be able to rely on existing chemical and biological reference works to cover this material. For public libraries, the eighth edition of the McGraw Hill Encyclopedia of Science and Technology [RBB S 15 97] and The Merck Index (12th ed., Merck, 1996), which is an excellent source for information on chemical compounds, will fill most needs.

Book Description

Arranged in A-to-Z order, the more than 17,000 entries provide basic information about fundamental, physiochemical laws, chemical compounds, constants, and formulae. The Dictionary also describes the essential features of some 2,000 enzymes and proteins, the reactions they catalyze and thefunctions they perform. These entries also include filenames to facilitate the location of entries in databases of sequences and definitions of 950 abbreviations and symbols. Designed for students, teachers, researchers and other professionals in any area of the biomedical sciences, the Dictionaryhas been fully updated anf revised to incorporate new information discovered since the original edition was published in 1997.

Book Description
Modern medicine is highly complex and investigations are a key part of the diagnostic process. With major advances in technology there are thousands of clinical and laboratory tests available. The 'Oxford Handbook of Clinical & Laboratory Investigation' provides a patient-oriented approachto investigation where key symptoms and signs are described along with tests that may be of value in reaching a diagnosis. The remainder of the Handbook is specialty-centered and provides a comprehensive review of all available tests within a given subject. Contributors are all active clinicianswho are engaged in medical practice, who appreciate the problems faced by junior doctors. The Handbook should also be of value to senior medical students, and who will soon be on the wards and responsible for ordering tests on their patients.

Book Info
The Royal London Hospital School of Medicine and Dentistry, UK. Concise pocket-sized reference listing symptoms and signs and the tests that may be of value in providing a diagnosis. Also includes a comprehensive review of all available tests in each field of medicine. Outline format with halftone illustrations. Plastic-coated softcover.

Doody Review Services
Reviewer: Valerie L. Ng, PhD, MD (Alameda County Medical Center/Highland Hospital)
Description: This is a pocket-sized handy reference guide to appropriate use of diagnostic testing ("Investigation") in clinical disease. It covers the use of clinical laboratory, radiology and nuclear medicine testing.
Purpose: The purpose of is to provide an "essential 'how to, when to' guide" to the use of diagnostic tests in evaluating clinical disease. The authors are active practitioners and this book reflects a strong clinical focus. The authors have succeeded admirably in this endeavor.
Audience: This book would be very useful for medical students, residents, and physicians early in their training. It is useful for pathologists who may want a quick reference guide to diagnostic tests useful in various diseases.
Features: This small pocket book is divided into two major sections. The first relatively short section discusses clinical symptoms and signs and recommends (when possible) preliminary diagnostic tests. The second section is much larger and occupies nearly three-fourths of the book. Readers are referred to this section once the preliminary tests have been completed and the readers have narrowed down the differential into an appropriate disease category. This second section covers specific diseases and the appropriate use of diagnostic testing for each disease. This book is quite helpful, and its small size makes it very handy. (I thought it was the British equivalent of the Washington Manual widely used by housestaff in the U.S.) There are some amusing differences in medical jargon:e.g., complete blood counts (CBCs in the U.S.) are referred to as full blood counts (FBCs), blood specimen tubes are referred to as bottles, etc.:but the recommendations for further diagnostic testing are very much identical to those in the U.S. I very much appreciate the British dry witty humor in the Introduction ("Approach to Investigation"). A very useful feature of this book is the juxtaposition of a variety of clinical protocols - e.g., a variety of endocrine stimulation tests, glucose tolerance tests, etc. - immediately adjacent to the discussion of the interpretation of such test results. I am curious as to when a CD-ROM or version downloadable to a PDA will be available, since this seemingly small book is still heavier and bulkier than a PDA.
Assessment: This is a very useful book to have ready for immediate reference. It would be most useful during residency training and early in one's medical career.

This handbook provides a concise description of hematologic disorders, initial steps in diagnosis, and an overview of treatment. Key areas include a listing of useful Internet sites and a quick reference for hematologic emergencies. "The purpose is to provide a concise yet complete guide to hematologic disorders. "The appropriate audience is physicians who are not specialists in hematology, post-doctoral fellows, residents, and medical students. "This book provides a brief description of hematologic disorders, tests required for evaluation, and a listing of treatment options. The first section is arranged as a differential diagnosis for specific findings on physical examination. I found the index of hematologic emergencies on the inside cover and list of web sites very useful. Recent discoveries such as Prothrombin 20210 and Methylene Tetrahydrofolate Reductase mutations are mentioned briefly as future directions in the evaluation of thrombophilia. American readers may have a problem with English abbreviations, but a full list of abbreviations is provided. "This handbook is an excellent resource for the clinician to evaluate hematologic abnormalities. It provides a differential diagnosis and the initial tests to order before referral to a hematologist, and it fits into a coat pocket. It is easier to follow and provides much more information than similar pocket books such as Mazza's Manual of Clinical Hematology, 2nd Edition (Little Brown and Company, 1995). A special bonus is the listing of web pages and list of hematologic emergencies.

A special bonus is the listing of web pages and list of hematologic emergencies.

Univ. of Oxford, UK. Covers the unique issues that doctors caring for elderly people need to know in addition to their training in general (internal) medicine. The range of subject matter and authorship has been enlarged from the first edition, and the style has been relaxed. Halftone illustrations appear throughout text. Previous edition: c1992.

Annotation
The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

From the Publisher
Few if any diseases are specific to old age. However, factors such as multiple pathology and impaired feedback control mechanisms lead to non-specific or 'atypical' presentation of disease, to difficulties in diagnosis, to rapid deterioration of untreated disease and to a high incidence of complications. The geriatrician must include rehabilitation in clinical care plans, and also be aware of the cultural gap that may exist between the old and the younger members of a changing society. Ethical issues may arise in the distribution of scarce societal resources between different age groups, and in considering the needs and rights of caring relatives as well as those of the disabled older patient.
Based on these considerations, this new textbook is designed to supplement rather than substitute for textbooks of general medicine. As a frame of reference it is specifically designed as a companion volume to the Oxford Textbook of Medicine. It draws on an international authorship with an emphasis on combining the fruits of experience in clinical geriatrics with a scientific base in research.
The various chapters therefore offer both scholarly reviews of fields of knowledge in medical gerontology and firmly practical advice on clinical problems. Field reviews include biological origins and mechanisms of aging, age-associated changes in immunology and other host defences, injury responses, temperature homeostasis, memory, and the aging eye. Practical issues include the management of foot problems, back pain, and infections in older patients. Further chapters deal with ethical issues, the difficulties of carers, and th design of services.
The book includes traditional concerns of geriatric medicine such as hypothermia and postural hypotension but also takes a wider perspective on aging with chapters on topics including the post-menopausal state and aging in the Third World. References have been kept to a moderate number aimed at providing a rational and selective entree to the literature rather thatn a comprehensive bibliography.

From The Critics
David O. Staats

This is a multiauthored comprehensive textbook of geriatric medicine written from a British point of view. "The editors' purpose is to provide a comprehensive look at aging and the care of older persons covering the nature of aging, demography of aging, illnesses of older persons, and systems of providing care for the elderly. "All physicians and physicians-in-training as well as members of interdisciplinary teams caring for older persons will benefit from this book. "The figures, photos, tables, algorithms, and diagrams in this textbook are especially clear and lucid. The appendix contains many useful assessment instruments. The chapters on nutrition, day hospitals, quality of life, failure to thrive, frailty, and immobility are especially noteworthy. "This second edition is greatly improved, as the editors encompass many Canadian perspectives on geriatrics, as well as some U.S. influences, while retaining a British flavor in their overall articulation. Their most obvious omission is a chapter on the clinical approach to the patient, the domains of assessment contained therein, and how necessary a team effort is in this approach. This book clearly ranks in the top tier of textbooks of geriatric medicine; every medical library should own it.

Book Description
The Oxford Textbook of Medicine provides all that any doctor needs to know to practice top-level internal medicine. It gives compreensive coverage of the epidemiology, aetiology, and mechanism of disease, as well as clear, unambiguous coverage of the diagnosis, practical management and prevention of the entire spectrum of medical disorders.LThere are major introductory sections on the scientific basis of disease; and in the system-based clinical sections genetic predisposition, pathophysiology, pathogenesis, molecular mechanisms, and cell biology are covered in depth for all significant medical syndromes. Clinical descriptions of diseases are clearly and memorably written, based on the experience and insight of the authors--many of whom are among the world's most distinguished medical scientists. Chapters are not only ""evidence based"" but also on clinical experience and a thorough survey of all the relevant literature. Throughout, the approach of OTM is humane and ethical and, at the same time, factual, reliable, honest(especially where knowledge is limited) and rigorously scientific.LThis is not just a textbook of ""First World"" medicine. It provides practical guidance for doctors working in a variety of medical setting the value of a logical clinical approach rather than immediate resort to expensive imaging and laboratory tests. Moore of the contributing authors than ever before are from outside Europe, including strong representation of North American medicine.LThe new editorial team has ensured that the OTM continues to reflect rapid changes in medical practice: there are new sections on intensive care, alcohol and drug abuse, clinical pharmacology and therapeutics, world health, clinical trials and evidence-based medicine, adolescent medicine, sports medicine, and emergency medicine; more than half the contributors are new for this edition; and most of the text has been heavily revised. The striking new page and cover design reflect the significant changes made in this new edition.LThe Textbook is illustrated by over 2000 two-color diagrams and many color Plates. The index is the most detailed and user-friendly of any major medical textbook: in an emergency, the reader can access information quickly- whether on the ward, in office or at home.LLike its predecessors, OTM4 will be the trusted and ultimate reference in libraries, hositals, doctors' consulting rooms, solicitors' offices, press offices, and primary care practices worldwide.

In Oxidants and Antioxidants: Ultrastructural and Molecular Biology Protocols, a panel of world authorities present cutting-edge molecular and ultrastructure techniques for investigating the pathophysiology of oxidative stress. Described in step-by-step detail, these readily reproducible methods use the latest in immunodetection, X-ray diffraction, confocal microscopy, in situ hybridization, chemiluminescence, and cytofluorescence. Additional techniques take advantage of electron paramagnetic resonance, advanced glycation endproducts, Western blotting analysis, transcription factors, p47 phox translocation, and microsphere delivery systems. Two companion volumes, Oxidative Stress Biomarkers and Antioxidant Protocols (2002), and Free Radical and Antioxidant Protocols (1998), focus on the related biochemical and cellular biological methods.
