Die Autoren haben beabsichtigt, diejenigen Gebiete der medizinischen Mikrobiologie kurz, exakt und in ihrem gegenwärtigen Stand darzustellen, die für die Infektionskrankheiten und ihre Chemotherapie von besonderer Bedeutung sind. Das Buch wendet sich in erster Linie an Medizinstudenten, außerdem an alle Ärzte in Krankenhaus und Praxis. Die Notwendigkeit für ein klares Verständnis der mlkrobiologischen Grundtatsachen ist in den letzten Jahren stärker geworden, da in Biochemie, Virologie und Chemotherapie so wie auf weiteren, die Medizin beeinflussenden Gebieten bedeutende Entwicklungen statt gefunden haben. Ein wesendicher Teil dieses Lehrbuches ist deswegen der Darstellung der Grundlagen gewidmet, wodurch sich das Buch auch für die Einführung des Studenten in den mikrobiologischen Kurs als brauchbar erweisen wird. Für die neue Auflage wurde ein Kapitel über Virus und Krebs neu geschrieben, und das Kapitel über antimikrobielle Chemotherapie wurde von Grund auf neu bearbeitet. Die Autoren freuen sich, bei dem Erscheinen der 7. amerikanischen Ausgabe von einer spanischen, deutschen, italienischen und griechischen Ausgabe, sowie von der Vorbereitung für eine serbokroatische Übersetzung berichten zu können. Die Autoren möchten nochmals allen danken, die ihnen bei der Bearbeitung dieser Auf lage behilflich waren, und die es ihnen durch ihre Kommentare und ihre Kritik ermöglicht haben, die in 2jährigen Abständen erscheinenden Revisionen dieses Buches auf dem neu esten Stand zu halten.

Stem cells have been gaining a lot of attention in recent years. Their unique potential to self-renew and differentiate has turned them into an attractive model for the study of basic biological questions such as cell division, replication, transcription, cell fate decisions, and more. With embryonic stem (ES) cells that can generate each cell type in the mammalian body and adult stem cells that are able to give rise to the cells within a given lineage, basic questions at different developmental stages can be addressed. Importantly, both adult and embryonic stem cells provide an excellent tool for cell therapy, making stem cell research ever more pertinent to regenerative medicine. As the title The Cell Biology of Stem Cells suggests, our book deals with multiple aspects of stem cell biology, ranging from their basic molecular characteristics to the in vivo stem cell trafficking of adult stem cells and the adult stem-cell niche, and ends with a visit to regeneration and cell fate reprogramming. In the first chapter, “Early embryonic cell fate decisions in the mouse”, Amy Ralson and Yojiro Yamanaka describe the mechanisms that support early developmental decisions in the mouse pre-implantation embryo and the current understanding of the source of the most immature stem cell types, which includes ES cells, trophoblast stem (TS) cells and extraembryonic endoderm stem (XEN) cells.
Biochemie in einer neuen Dimension! „Löffler/Petrides Biochemie und Pathobiochemie“ gehört zu den Lehrbüchern, die man unbedingt im Bücherregal haben muss. Ohne ein umfassendes und gleichzeitig verständliches Grundlagenbuch wird man sonst immer Schwierigkeiten haben, die komplexen biochemischen Zusammenhänge so zu verstehen, dass sich dieses Wissen auch in die spätere klinische Tätigkeit transportieren lässt. In der komplett neu konzipierten und überarbeiteten 9. Auflage wurde der Stoff in 74 kleinere Kapitel unterteilt. So fällt zum einen die Orientierung im Inhaltsverzeichnis leichter und zum anderen sind die einzelnen Lerneinheiten deutlich übersichtlicher. Jedes Kapitel ist gründlich aktualisiert worden, zahlreiche Abbildungen wurden neu gezeichnet und gleichzeitig überarbeitet. Was „Löffler/Petrides Biochemie und Pathobiochemie“ aber einzigartig macht, sagt schon der Titel. Neben den normalen biochemischen Vorgängen im Körper wird in nahezu jedem Kapitel die Brücke geschlagen zur Pathobiochemie. Das fördert ein grundlegendes Verständnis dafür, warum es sich lohnt, alles über Moleküle, Mechanismen, Transportwege und Zellvorgänge zu wissen. Damit es leichter fällt, die Biochemie zu „erobern“, gibt es ein überschaubares didaktisches Konzept, viele spannende Exkurse, die den Blick über den Tellerrand schärfen und zusätzliche Hintergrundinfos, die das Verständnis fördern. Meistern Sie die Vorklinik mit einem „großen“ Biochemiebuch und nehmen Sie Ihr Wissen mit in den klinischen Abschnitt Ihres Studiums. Mehr verstehen – besser vorbereitet sein!
For more than fifty years, scientists, clinicians, & students have relied on "Goodman & Gilman for the final word on the pharmacokinetics, mechanisms of action & therapeutic application of drugs. This edition sustains that proud tradition & infuses the latest information on molecular pharmacology as it redefines the definite database of pharmacologic therapeutics. As a course text or a daily reference in clinical practice, "G & G" offers the optimal mix of basic science & clinical coverage as it pertains to effective drug therapy.
The Retinoids, Volume 1 covers the chemistry and biology of retinoids, with an emphasis on the role of retinoids in nutrition and in vision. After briefly discussing the discovery and nomenclature of retinoids, this six-chapter volume describes the chemical and physical properties of natural and synthetic retinoids, as well as the retinoidal benzoic acid derivatives. The book goes on describing various reactions with radioisotopes for the synthesis of retinoids and related compounds. Considerable chapters explain the chemical, physical, and biological methodologies for separating and measuring retinoids. A discussion on the relationships between structure and activity of retinoids is included. The last chapter addresses the role of vitamin A in animal and human nutrition. This volume also discusses the metabolism of vitamin A in normal and disease states, as well as its interaction with hormones, micronutrients, drugs, and alcohol. This volume is an ideal source for nutritionists, clinicians, and researchers who are interested in the progressing field of retinoid research.
