  • Tissue Engineering of Cartilage and Boneby Novartis Foundation

    Wiley 2003; US$ 212.00

    Tissue engineering takes advantages of the combined use of cultured living cells and three-dimensional scaffolds to reconstruct adult tissues that are absent or malfunctioning. This book brings together scientists and clinicians working on a variety of approaches for regenerating of damaged or lost cartilage and bone to assess the progress of this... more...

  • Role of the Sarcoplasmic Reticulum in Smooth Muscleby Novartis Foundation

    Wiley 2003; US$ 212.00

    Smooth muscle contraction is a vital component of the functioning of blood vessels, the uterus, airways and the bladder. Its malfunction can lead to serious pathological conditions, such as hypertension and pre-term labour. The calcium ion plays a central role in smooth muscle function, increasing in concentration for contraction and decreasing for... more...

  • Mucus Hypersecretion in Respiratory Diseaseby Novartis Foundation

    Wiley 2003; US$ 212.00

    A number of chronic respiratory diseases including chronic bronchitis, asthma, cystic fibrosis and bronchiectasis are characterized by mucus hypersecretion. Following damage to the airway epithelium, a repair process of dedifferentiation, regenerative proliferation and redifferentiation takes place that is invariably accompanied by mucus hypersecretion... more...

  • 'In Silico' Simulation of Biological Processesby Novartis Foundation

    Wiley 2003; US$ 212.00

    Over recent decades vast amounts of biological data have been accumulated. However, it is becoming increasingly difficult to apply traditional theoretical methods to the formulation of coherent pictures of cell and organ function because it is no longer possible for a human theorist to integrate all of the available information. Instead, computer technologies... more...

  • Neuronal and Cognitive Effects of Oestrogensby Novartis Foundation

    Wiley 2003; US$ 212.00

    Although normally thought of as a sex hormone, recent research has highlighted the numerous and significant effects that oestrogen has on the CNS, extending far beyond its important reproductive role. It has been shown that oestrogen acts as a neural growth factor with important influences on the survival, plasticity, regeneration and ageing of the... more...

  • Neural Transplantation in Neurodegenerative Diseaseby Novartis Foundation

    Wiley 2003; US$ 212.00

    The field of neural transplantation is at a crucial stage, with  important clinical trials on transplantation in patients with Parkinson's disease nearing completion and novel, alternative approaches to fetal transplantation being developed. This timely book brings together leading neuroscientists, clinicians, and cell and developmental biologists... more...

  • The Nature of Intelligenceby Novartis Foundation

    Wiley 2003; US$ 212.00

    Evolutionary psychology and behavioural genetics are two successful and important fields in the study of human behaviour, but practitioners in these subjects have different conceptions of the nature of human intelligence. Evolutionary psychologists dispute the existence of general intelligence and emphasise the differences among species.... more...

  • Immunoinformaticsby Novartis Foundation

    Wiley 2004; US$ 212.00

    The astounding diversity of the immune system and the complexity of its regulatory pathways makes immunology a combinatorial science. Computational analysis has therefore become an essential element of immunology research and this has led to the creation of the emerging field of immunoinformatics. This book is the first to feature thorough coverage... more...

  • Development of the Cardiac Conduction Systemby Novartis Foundation

    Wiley 2005; US$ 212.00

    The pacemaking and conduction system (PCS) is vital for generating and synchronizing the heart beat.  Dysfunction of this system can be a direct cause of cardiac conduction disturbance, arrhythmias and sudden cardiac death. A wealth of information has been collected over many years on the unique histological, morphological and phenotypic characteristics... more...

  • Autismby Novartis Foundation

    Wiley 2005; US$ 212.00

    This book draws together contributions from some of the leading investigators in the field of autism to consider specific problem areas in current research. Each contributor brings expertise from a different field, providing a balanced view of the whole spectrum of study of this disorder. It covers four main areas: * Twin and family studies indicate... more...
