  • Sphingolipids and Metabolic Diseaseby L. Ashley Cowart

    Springer 2011; US$ 219.00

    Current thinking holds that obesity derives primarily from overnutrition (though compelling arguments for other mechanisms, like endocrine disruption by environmental pollutants, also gain support from the literature). In animals, overnutrition is initially handled by adipose tissue expansion; however, exhaustion of this route of lipid sequestering... more...

  • Tumors of the Central Nervous System, Volume 4by M.A. Hayat

    Springer 2011; US$ 239.00

    This volume mainly contains information on the diagnosis, therapy, and prognosis of brain tumors. Insights on the understanding of molecular pathways involved in tumor biology are explained, which should lead to the development of effective drugs. Information on pathways (e.g., hedgehog) facilitates targeted therapies in cancer. Tumor models are also... more...

  • Cell Signaling & Molecular Targets in Cancerby Malay Chatterjee; Khosrow Kashfi

    Springer 2011; US$ 189.00

    This book provides an overview of critical components of cell signaling machinery and its role in epithelial morphogenesis, proliferation, invasions and angiogenesis in human cancer and discusses novel types of protein kinase pathways. more...

  • Advances in Cancer Stem Cell Biologyby Roberto Scatena; Alvaro Mordente; Bruno Giardina

    Springer 2011; US$ 189.00

    In recent years, cancer stem cells have been recognized as important component in carcinogenesis and they seem to form the basis of many (if not all) tumor types. Cancer stem cells or "cancer cell like stem cells" have been isolated from various cancers of different origin (blood, breast, brain, skin, head and neck, thyroid, cervix, lung,... more...

  • Materia Medica for Various Cancersby William C.S. Cho

    Springer 2011; US$ 239.00

    Cancer is one of the leading killers in the world and the incidence is increasing, but most cancer patients and cancer survivors suffer much from the disease and its conventional treatments' side effects. In the past, clinical data showed that some complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) possessed anticancer abilities, but some clinicians... more...

  • Tumors of the Central Nervous System, Volume 5by M.A. Hayat

    Springer 2011; US$ 219.00

    The most recent developments in diagnostic and therapeutic aspects of Gliomas (glioblastoma) in the brain are presented. The importance of personalized medicine and clinical validation for targeted therapy are discussed. The identification of various types of biomarkers (determined by molecular genetics) is included, along with their advantages and... more...

  • Thyroid Cancerby Glenn D. Braunstein

    Springer 2011; US$ 259.00

    The American Cancer Society recently estimated that about 45,000 new cases of thyroid cancer will be diagnosed in the United States, with three-quarters occurring in women. The overall 5-year survival rate is about 97 per cent, making it one of the least lethal cancers. We are experiencing an epidemic of well-differentiated thyroid cancer, in part... more...

  • Emergencies in Pediatric Oncologyby Katrin Scheinemann; Allison E. Boyce

    Springer 2011; US$ 69.95

    Pediatric oncology is a considerably complex discipline requiring frequent need for reference material. Emergencies in Pediatric Oncology meets this objective by serving as a concise, practical resource for the hurried physician. Replete with diagrams and written in a clear, succinct style, this title offers an easy-to-read guide especially useful... more...

  • Signaling Pathways in Cancer Pathogenesis and Therapyby David A. Frank

    Springer 2011; US$ 139.00

    In recent years, increasing evidence has suggested that abnormal activation of signaling pathways is a critical event in cancer pathogenesis. In particular, activation of these pathways can lead to inappropriate cellular survival, proliferation, pluripotency, invasion, metastasis, and angiogenesis. Thus, understanding the mechanisms by which signaling... more...

  • Chest Imagingby Les R. Folio

    Springer 2012; US$ 49.95

    The chest X-ray (CXR) or chest radiograph remains the most commonly ordered imaging study in medicine, yet paradoxically is often the most complex to learn, recall, and master effective and accurate interpretation. The chest radiograph includes all thoracic anatomy and provides a high yield, given the low cost and single source. This guide presents... more...
