Reversibility of Chronic Degenerative Disease and Hypersensitivity, Volume 1

CRC Press. 2010

The clinical approaches to the chronic degenerative diseases that drain our resources, and compromise our well-being, have become almost exclusively symptom-focused. The common wisdom is that they are idiopathic with final outcomes to be managed rather than prevented or cured. That they are potentially reversible rarely enters into any discussion between doctor and patient. A Homeostatic approach to Cure and Prevention for Researchers and Clinicians Working in Toxicology, Immunology,...

Mitosis Facts and Questions

Mitosis Facts and Questions

Springer Science & Business Media. 2012

Two years ago, about twenty people gathered informally in our institute to discuss mitosis. We took this opportunity to try to separate the "hard" facts of mitosis which are accepted by most people, from the "soft" ones which are still open for discussion. Surprisingly few "hard" facts survived with their reputation still intact. This result led us to orga nize a similar meeting on a larger scale. The outcome was the workshop "Mitosis: Facts and Questions", which was held at the German...

Metal Biology Takes Flight: The Study of Metal Homeostasis and Detoxification in Insects

Metal Biology Takes Flight: The Study of Metal Homeostasis and Detoxification in Insects

Frontiers Media SA. 2018

Metals such as copper, iron, manganese, and zinc are clearly required for proper metabolism and development, while imbalances can lead to systemic dysfunction and disease. As a result, organisms have evolved complex genetic systems for the regulation of metal levels, including import, export, and sequestration of metals within cells and sub-cellular compartments. The study of metal biology in insects has the potential to greatly expand our understanding of metal biology. The results of such...

Fast Facts: Pancreas and Biliary Tract Diseases

Fast Facts: Pancreas and Biliary Tract Diseases

Karger Medical and Scientific Publishers. 2017

Pancreaticobiliary diseases are extremely common, and all primary care staff will encounter patients with diseases of the pancreas and biliary tract. Rapid differentiation, diagnosis, treatment and/or referral to a specialist must be made to avoid serious life threatening consequences. It is therefore essential that every clinician has at least a basic understanding in this area. 'Fast Facts: Pancreas and Biliary Tract Diseases, 2nd edn' provides a clear and concise guide to diagnosis and...
