Описание: Cushing?s syndrome is a rare disorder that is associated with many co-morbidities such as systemic hypertension, diabetes, osteoporosis, impaired immune function, and psychiatric disease, all of which severely reduce quality of life and life expectancy. This book reviews the role of cortisol in the human body, focusing on the effects of excess cortisol due to Cushing’s syndrome as well as the role of the HPA axis in metabolism, inflammation, and neuropsychiatric function. The volume will cover basic mechanistic data, clinical outcomes data, and novel therapies. Also discussed are everything from abnormalities of the HPA axis, to the role of the HPA axis in the development of neuropsychiatric disorders and metabolic disorders, to new definitions of Cushing’s remission and recurrence. The Hypothalamic Pituitary Adrenal Axis in Health and Disease will provide a comprehensive and multi-disciplinary review of the pathophysiology and outcomes of excess cortisol in the human body and brain as well as the role of the HPA axis in other disease states.

Описание: The aim of this study was to investigate the development and diffferentiation of the adrenal glands in the grass snake during early stages of ontogenesis. After light microscopy and ultrastructural investigation, six developmental phases were distinguished in the grass snake adrenal glands. Similar developmental phases were described in pig embryos but they slightly differ from those presented above. In reptile and mammal embryos a similar direction of changes is observed in primaordia of both tissues forming adrenal glands.

Описание: In the past decade there has been an explosion of far-reaching developments in the biological and physical sciences relevant to cancer. The incidence and mortality from renal cell carcinoma has continuously risen over the past 50 years. Despite this, survival for patients has notably improved and great strides have been made in the management of patients with renal cell carcinoma. Our understanding of the natural history of renal cell carcinoma, the role of nephrectomy, the benefits of immunotherapy and the possibilities of new technologies are evolving and are being integrated with advances in classification and staging. This book provides a comprehensive source of information on renal and adrenal tumors that will be of practical interest for students, residents, physicians, and researchers alike. It reviews comprehensively the current understanding of the biology, pathophysiology and urological oncology of the disease, looking at the clinical problems and potential solutions including chapters on both the scientific and clinical principles. Fully illustrated, the book emphasises new advances in molecular biology, pathogenesis, detection and experimental therapeutics and focuses on new developments in clinical research. An international team of recognized of experts have been brought together to provide historical perspectives, an overview of basic facts, and an assessment and exploration of the newer developments in our understanding of the clinical, genetic, and molecular aspects of these diseases. The book clearly distinguishes what is generally agreed upon from what is still controversial, giving both sides equal treatment.
