CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASE IN AIDS BARBARO GiuseppeBoccara Franck Paperback 180 pp.
2005 EUROS 134,95 ( FF 885,21 )


 Summary / Résumé

Studies published before the introduction of highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) tracked the incidence and course of HIV infection in relation to cardiac illness in both children and adults.
These studies show that subclinical echocardiographic abnormalities independently predict adverse outcomes and identify high-risk groups to be targeted for early intervention and therapy.
The introduction of HAART has altered cardiovascular manifestations in HIV.
On the one hand, HAART has significantly modified the course of HIV disease, lengthened survival, and improved the quality of life of HIV-infected patients.
On the other hand, the early data have raised concerns that HAART is associated with an increase in both peripheral and coronary arterial diseases, creating an intriguing clinical scenery.
This book focuses on new clinical and biological insight related to HIV-associated metabolic and cardiovascular complications in the HAART era.

Evolution and pathogenesis of the involvement of the cardiovascular system in HIV infection.- Pathogenesis of HAART-associated metabolic syndrome.- Pathology of cardiac complications in HIV infection.- Pathology of peripheral and coronary vessels in AIDS patients.- Coronary heart disease in HIV-infected patients: Epidemiology.- Coronary artery disease in HIV-infected patients.
Clinical Presentation, Pathophysiology, Prognosis, Prevention and Treatment.- Cerebrovascular disease in HIV-infected patients.- Peripheral arterial disease in HIV-infected patients: Atherosclerosis and vasculitic syndromes.- HIV-associated pulmonary hypertension.- Coagulative disorders in HIV-infected patients.- Cardiovascular complications in HIV-infected children.- Cardiac surgery and the human immunodeficiency virus.- Cardiological emergencies in HIV-infected patients.- Guidelines for the prevention of cardiovascular risk in HIV-infected patients treated with antiretroviral drugs.

MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING OF THE HEART & VESSELS
LOMBARDI M., BARTOLOZZI C.

Hardback 400 pp.
2005
EUROS 121,27 ( FF 795,48 )


 Summary / Résumé

In recent years magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has enriched the technological potential available for the characterization of cardiovascular pathologies, adding substantial advantages to other non-invasive techniques.
This technique, which is intrinsically digital and has reduced operator dependency, allows the performance of image analysis in a quantitative and reproducible manner.
The use of non-ionizing energy with the consequent absence of an environmental impact and of operator and patient biohazards makes MRI a winning technique when evaluating the risk – benefit ratio in comparison to other imaging methods.
In virtue of its added diagnostic value and inherent refinements that allow construction of two- and three-dimensional images, MRI is gaining a primary role in the histopathological and physiopathological understanding of a large number of pathologies concerning the heart and vessels.
This text is addressed both to MRI operators seeking specific technical information and to clinicians who wish to have a better understanding of the diagnostic and management advantages that MRI can offer.

2005
EUROS 101,23 ( FF 664,03 )


 Summary / Résumé

Multidetector-row computed tomography (MDCT) has advanced the approach to diagnostic assessment of many pathologies and now plays an integral role in imaging of both abdominal and cardiovascular diseases.
The possibility to acquire diagnostic images with shorter scan duration, longer scan ranges, and/or thinner sections, MDCT has facilitated the opening of new horizons, such as interventional MDCT and functional imaging in stroke and oncology.
In addition, advanced postprocessing techniques now permit high quality volumetric imaging in combination with maximum intensity projections, volume rendering, curved planar reformations and multiplanar reconstructions.
This volume gathers contributions by internationally renowned specialists in the field who, through presenting their clinical experience, provide a thorough overview not only of MDCT and its practical applications, but also of workflow management in everyday clinical practice.
Focussing on scanning and contrast protocols, the current advantages and disadvantages of non-enhanced vs.
enhanced MDCT are discussed, along with insights into likely future developments.
The volume represents an up-to-date source of technical and practically-oriented clinical information which should prove of great benefit to all who wish to improve or consolidate their knowledge and expertise in MDCT.

MYB TRANSCRIPTION FACTORS: THEIR ROLE IN GROWTH, DIFFERENTIATION & DISEASE, (PROTEINS & CELL REGULATION, VOL.
2)
FRAMPTON Jon
Hardback 416 pp.
2005
EUROS 131,88 ( FF 865,08 )


 Summary / Résumé

This volume represents the first collection of articles contributed by research leaders working on the Myb family of transcriptional regulatory proteins.
In more than twenty chapters the authors discuss the range of biological processes and diverse cell types in which Myb proteins operate.
Although concentrating on the three vertebrate Myb family members, homologues from lower species are also discussed because of the light they are able to shed on the evolution and function of these proteins.
Individual chapters describe the involvement of Myb proteins, in particular c-Myb, in normal and diseased development and function of many tissues including haemopoietic cells, blood vessels, the gastrointestinal tract and the brain.
Several chapters explore the mechanistic details of the action of Myb proteins, especially structural features, their interaction with DNA and other regulatory proteins, and the variety of genes that are regulatory targets for this group of transcription factors.
This work will be of interest to those working directly in the field and also to the wider research community investigating the transcriptional regulation of development, differentiation and growth.
The therapeutic potential of manipulating Myb function is also discussed making the book appealing to clinician scientists in several fields including haematology, oncology and cardiology.

CARDIOVASCULAR RESEARCH : NEW TECHNOLOGI ES, METHODS & APPLICATIONS, (WITH CDROM)
PASTERKAMP G., KLEIJN D.P.

Hardback approx.
2005 not yet published +CD
approx.price..EUROS 105,45 ( FF 691,71 )


 Summary / Résumé

The last decade, technical improvements will have changed the inventory of many research laboratories.
New techniques and discoveries continuously give rise to observations that consequently result in the definition of new research objectives.
In the past, research departments used to be clearly demarcated.
Nowadays, technology that is shared by all lines of research stimulates convergence of research interests.
This also applies to cardiovascular research.
Vascular occlusive disease is now core business for researchers employed by cardiology, vascular surgery, vascular medicine, radiology, cell biology, chemistry, physiology and many more departments.
Knowledge on actual research developments are shared by researchers with different skills.
It is sometimes difficult to acquire expertise when a researcher feels his experimental work could be improved by introducing a new research technique.
In this book the investigator will find an overview of recent developments that are relevant for research in general but cardiovascular research in particular.
