Physiology plays a major role in the scientific foundation of medicine and other
subjects related to human health and physical performance. Pharmacology is the
science which deals with the effects of drugs on living systems and their use in the
treatment of disease. This book is designed to enhance students’ understanding of
physiology and pharmacology via a series of case studies involving human disease
and its treatment.
Traditional university teaching methods focus on informing students in terms of
physiological and pharmacological theory.
Now in its sixth edition, Color Atlas of Physiology covers the entire subject of human physiology and brilliantly reviews everything medical students need to know to pass their pre-clinical physiology exams. Sections include the nerves and muscles, blood, respiration, the cardiovascular system, digestion, and reproduction. Providing a concise review of each thematic unit, the popular and proven layout of the book's double-page spreads with color illustrations and accompanying text allows for speedy comprehension and recall of key concepts...

Physiology's classic text continues to uphold its rich tradition-presenting key physiology concepts in a remarkably clear and engaging manner. Guyton & Hall's Textbook of Medical Physiology covers all of the major systems in the human body, while emphasizing system interaction, homeostasis, and pathophysiology. This very readable, easy-to-follow, and thoroughly updated, 11th Edition features a new full-color layout, short chapters, clinical vignettes, and shaded summary tables that allow for easy comprehension of the material. ...
The principally pharmacological aspects of vitamins are described here.The nutritional aspects, physiological function, sources, daily requirements and deficiency syndromes (primary and secondary) are to be found in any textbook of medicine. • • • • Vitamin A: retinol Vitamin B: complex Vitamin C: ascorbic acid Vitamin D, calcium, parathyroid hormone, calcitonin, bisphosphonates, bone • Treatment of calcium and bone disorders • Vitamin E:tocopherol
that subclinical vitamin deficiencies are a cause of much chronic ill-health and liability to infections.
In the five years since the first edition of this book was published, there has been an explosion
in new information relating to the nature of dry skin and its treatment. Investigators from various
disciplines, including dermatologists, pharmacists, chemists, biochemists, molecular biologists,
physiologists, pharmacologists, and even psychologists have advanced our knowledge tremendously.
We now understand that the stratum corneum has a surprisingly large number of functions in maintaining
the physiologic stability and homeostasis of the skin and mind.
Treatment is justified if it has significantly improved their wellbeing and function. A combination of medication with psychological techniques is likely to be most beneficial, especially for resistant cases.
Humans spend about a third of the time asleep but why we sleep is not yet fully understood. Sleep is a state of inactivity accompanied by loss of awareness and a markedly reduced responsiveness to environmental stimuli.

Acetylcholine is a widespread chemotransmitter in the body, mediating a broad range of physiological effects.There are two distinct classes of receptor for acetylcholine defined on the basis of their preferential activation by the alkaloids, nicotine (from tobacco) and muscarine (from a fungus, Amanita muscaria). Cholinergic drugs (acetylcholine agonists) mimic acetylcholine at all sites although the balance of nicotinic and muscarinic effects is variable.
DPP IV has been attributed a large array of functions, some of which are mediated by
its exopeptidase activity. Although it only removes two amino acid residues at the N-terminus
of the peptide, this cleavage can inactivate or modify the activity of regulatory peptides, peptide
hormones, chemokines and neuropeptides. Several excellent DPP IV substrates with high
specificity constants were identified by the in vitro kinetic study of the truncation of bioactive
peptides by DPP IV. In vivo studies e.g.
The basic precepts underlying previous editions of Clinical Drug Therapy continue to guide the
writing of this seventh edition. The overall purpose is to promote safe, effective, and rational drug
• Providing information that accurately reflects current practices in drug therapy.
• Facilitating the acquisition, comprehension, and application of knowledge related to drug
therapy. Application requires knowledge about the drug and the client receiving it.
Indications in gene therapy clinical trials. The chart divides clinical gene transfer studies by disease classification. A majority of trials have addressed cancer, with monogenic disorders and cardiovascular diseases the next largest
categories. (Reproduced with permission from J Gene Med. New Jersey, Wiley, 2006.)
Gene Transfer for Genetic Disease
Gene transfer strategies for genetic disease generally involve gene addition therapy. This approach most commonly involves transfer of the missing gene to a physiologically relevant target cell. ...
The investigation of the oesophagus has seen major advanciens thes econd half of
the 20th Century as technology has developed and our understanding of the
physiology and pathophysiology of oesophageal diseases has increased. In thew ake
of these changes, research and development of oesophageal function tests have
lead to a newbr eed of specialists in medicine to provide for the needs of the clinician
in diagnosis and management of patients with oesophageal diseases.
Biological sciences in nursing has seen a change in status over the last 20
years. As a nurse educator, I became aware that with the introduction of
the ‘nursing model’ all signs of biology were banished from the curriculum.
Anatomy and physiology were thought to be akin to the ‘medical model’,
and as such they fell outside the nurse’s territory. At all costs, nurses had
to be seen as autonomous practitioners in their own right.
The main method of cognition of the performance of biological systems is their
mathematical modeling. The essence of this method should reflect the principle of
optimization in biology. Any biosystem cannot function if its energy consumption is
The same is applicable to the blood circulatory system. Its main function is to transport
blood throughout the body in order to maintain the proper gaseous exchange, deliver
important substances to viscera and tissues in living body and remove decay products.
Since the book "Gangrene: Current Concepts and Management Options" had been published in August 2011, certain advancements in the field have been observed and several important multicenter studies have been successfully accomplished. The presented book, second in the series, continues the discussion of many clinical, physiological, immune-and bacteriological, as well as socio-economic aspects of the complex problems pertain to diabetes-associated and non-diabetic gangrene management.
