Michael Horowitz Gastrointestinal Function in Diabetes Mellitus


Gastrointestinal function represents an important, and hitherto inappropriately neglected, aspect of diabetes management. Disordered gastrointestinal motor and sensory function occurs frequently in both type 1 and type 2 diabetes and may be associated with gastrointestinal symptoms that adversely affect quality of life. During the last two decades there has been a rapid expansion in knowledge in this area. It is now recognised that upper gastrointestinal motility is pivotal to the regulation of postprandial blood glucose concentrations in both health and patients with diabetes. This book is the first of its kind and was stimulated by the need to consolidate these recent advances, which dictate that a knowledge of gastroenterology as it relates to diabetes is now required of the clinician/diabetologist. Features an organ-specific overview of the epidemiology and pathophysiology of disordered gastrointestinal (including hepatobiliary and pancreatic) function in diabetes mellitus Contains guidelines for the clinician, diabetologist and gastroenterologist for both diagnosis and management Includes a comprehensive description of the relation between gastrointestinal function, gastrointestinal hormones, autonomic nerve function and glycaemic control in animal models Covers the development of new treatment options, particularly those targeted at the reduction of postprandial hyperglycaemia, to optimise glycaemic control This book will be of interest to gastroenterologists, diabetologists, specialist nurses and clinical researchers.

Oliver Müller Cancer Signaling


Cancer, which has become the second-most prevalent health issue globally, is essentially a malfunction of cell signaling. Understanding how the intricate signaling networks of cells and tissues allow cancer to thrive – and how they can be turned into potent weapons against it – is the key to managing cancer in the clinic and improving the outcome of cancer therapies. In their ground-breaking textbook, the authors provide a compelling story of how cancer works on the molecular level, and how targeted therapies using kinase inhibitors and other modulators of signaling pathways can contain and eventually cure it. The first part of the book gives an introduction into the cell and molecular biology of cancer, focusing on the key mechanisms of cancer formation. The second part of the book introduces the main signaling transduction mechanisms responsible for carcinogenesis and compares their function in healthy versus cancer cells. In contrast to the complexity of its topic, the text is easy to read. 32 specially prepared teaching videos on key concepts and pathways in cancer signaling are available online for users of the print edition and have been integrated into the text in the enhanced e-book edition.

Bailey Christopher D. Cancer Nursing. Care in Context


The needs of cancer patients and their families are complex. Yet still more complex are the powerful social and cultural forces that shape the delivery of cancer care, and the way in which it experienced. Cancer Nursing: Care in Context addresses this by adopting a unique approach that situates cancer care in the context of society‘s attitudes to the disease, and the broader every-day needs of both patients and their carers. By combining evidenced-based information, a critical view of care and treatment, and ‘first-hand accounts’ of having cancer and caring for people with cancer, the book provides a new perspective how best to deliver the care that patients truly require. This second edition includes new chapters on prevention, diagnosis, symptoms, self-help and self-management, and living with cancer long-term. It also: • Addresses significant changes in cancer care, including expansion of nursing roles, the establishment of cancer networks and cancer collaborative projects • Considers NICE guidance on Supportive and Palliative care • Incorporates material on prevention and early detection • Includes evidence tables based on relevant literature Cancer Nursing: Care in Context is an invaluable resource for all those involved in the provision of cancer care and support to patients and their families.

Michael Kinch The End of the Beginning (Unabridged)


For the first time since a fifth-century Greek physician gave the name "cancer? (karkinos, in Greek) to a deadly disease first described in Egyptian Papyri, the medical world is near a breakthrough that could allow even the most conservative doctors and pragmatic patients to use the other "c word? – cure – in the same sentence as cancer. A remarkable series of events has brought us to this point, thanks in large part to a new ability to more efficiently harness the extraordinary power of the human immune system. The End of the Beginning is a remarkable history of cancer treatment and the evolution of our understanding of its dynamic interplay with the immune system. Through Michael Kinch's personal experience as a cancer researcher at Washington University and the head of the oncology program at a leading biotechnology company, we witness the incredible accumulation of breakthrough science and its rapid translation into life-saving technologies that have begun to dramatically increase the quality and quantity of life for cancer patients. Expanding upon Kinch's own remarkable projects to encompass the vaccines being deployed to eliminate cervical cancer and the development of cancer-specific "smart bombs? in the form of monoclonal antibodies, cellular therapies, and checkpoint inhibitors, The End of the Beginning reveals the incredible transformation of cancer treatment happening today.

Daniel C. Merrill What You Should Know About Prostate Cancer


During his career at the Martinez Administration Medical Center in California Dr Merrill was responsible for the care of thousands of men with prostate cancer and has performed hundreds of curative radical retropubic prostatectomies. In this eBook Dr. Merrill shares the knowledge gained from this experience with the reader. It is the author's strong belief that no one should die of prostate cancer in the 21st century. Dr Merrill also believes that the key to beating this potentially lethal cancer is early diagnosis and aggressive surgical removal of the cancer before it has spread beyond the confines of the prostate. Younger cancer free males should use the information in this book to be sure that they are being properly screened for prostate cancer at appropriate intervals. Men who have developed prostate cancer may use its contents to familiarize themselves with the pros and cons of the available methods for treating prostate cancer including open surgery, radiation therapy, brachytherapy, cryosurgery, laparoscopic surgery and robotic assisted laparoscopic surgery. It is essential that the male with prostate cancer have this information at his finger tips when discussing his treatment options with the urologist or radiotherapist. The treatment choices for males with metastatic disease are also addressed while stressing the advantages of the subcapsular approach to orchidectomy. Finally, Dr Merrill addresses the all important issue of how to pick a surgeon.
