CIBA Foundation Symposium

Most popular at the top

  • Myopia and the Control of Eye Growthby CIBA Foundation Symposium

    Wiley 2008; US$ 175.00

    Myopia, the most common disorder of the eye, affects 80% of the population of some countries. Although its basis remains uncertain, recent development of animal models have permitted tests of hypothesis as to myopia's origins. The symposium proceedings cover normal growth of the eye including the roles of peptide factors, metabolism and accomodation,... more...

  • Neurobiology of Incontinenceby CIBA Foundation Symposium

    Wiley 2008; US$ 175.00

    Incontinence is a very common and often devastating problem, but one that goes largely unacknowledged. In order to elucidate the underlying mechanisms of this major clinical condition, this symposium brought together neuroscientists working on the basic biology of the bladder and bowel and clinicians dealing with the various manifestations of urinary... more...

  • Protein Conformationby CIBA Foundation Symposium

    Wiley 2008; US$ 175.00

    How the amino acid sequence of a protein determines its three-dimensional structure is a major problem in biology and chemistry. Leading experts in the fields of NMR spectroscopy, X-ray crystallography, protein engineering and molecular modeling offer provocative insights into current views on the protein folding problem and various aspects for future... more...

  • Regeneration of Vertebrate Sensory Receptor Cellsby CIBA Foundation Symposium

    Wiley 2008; US$ 175.00

    An international group of leading investigators discuss recent progress of sensory structures in lower and higher vertebrates. Experts in two relevant fields--the cell cycle and mitogenic growth factors--present insightful contributions in the search for precursors and/or stem cells in each sense organ plus the signals which regulate those precursors'... more...

  • Silicon Biochemistryby CIBA Foundation Symposium

    Wiley 2008; US$ 188.00

    Silicon is the second most abundant element in the Earth's crust, and is found in water, plants and organisms. The contributors decribe how silica gets into and out of organisms and discuss how essential or harmful silicon or silicon-based compounds are in higher animals. more...

  • Steroids and Neuronal Activityby CIBA Foundation Symposium

    Wiley 2008; US$ 175.00

    Classical studies of steroid hormones are concerned with their regulation of protein synthesis via the modulation of genomic transcription. But many of the actions of these hormones occur too rapidly to be explained in this manner, particularly their effects on the central nervous system. This text deals with recent discoveries showing that steroids... more...

  • Synthetic Peptides as Antigensby CIBA Foundation Symposium

    Wiley 2008; US$ 72.95

    Symposium on Synthetic Peptides as Antigens, held at the Ciba Foundation, London, 4–6 June 1985. The subject of this symposium was proposed by P. Dukor and D. G. Braun. Editors: Ruth Porter (Organizer) and Julie Whelan. G. L. Ada Introduction. J. H. Humphrey Regulation of in vivo immune responses: few principles and much ignorance. Discussion.... more...

  • The Biology of Hyaluronanby CIBA Foundation Symposium

    Wiley 2008; US$ 175.00

    Presents state-of-the-art applications in hyaluronan research, from hyaluronan's physicochemical properties to its clinical role as a connective tissue marker and its surgical implications, particularly in ear, eye and orthopaedic surgery. Covers hyaluronan's synthesis and catabolism, its role in cells, its interactions with specific binding proteins,... more...

  • The Biology of Nicotine Dependenceby CIBA Foundation Symposium

    Wiley 2008; US$ 175.00

    Nicotine is considered to be the main agent in the maintenance of the tobacco smoking habit and is largely responsible for the behavioral and physiological responses to the inhalation of tobacco smoke. This work presents advances made in the elucidation of the action of nicotine in the body--essential information for developing treatments to help people... more...
