Glycobiology and Medicine by John S. Axford

By John S. Axford

This e-book comprises the lawsuits of the 6th Jenner Glycobiology and drugs Symposium, held 14-17 September, 2002, in Seillac, France.

This booklet highlights the most recent advancements in glycoimmunology, together with glycosylation-dependent bacterial and viral infections, lectin and proteoglycan-dependent interactions in leukocyte homing tactics to lymphoid tissues and infected tissues, congenital defects in glycosylation of glycoproteins and glycolipids, and the function of carbohydrates in tumour improvement and neuropathology, together with Creutzfeldt-Jakob ailment.

MDCT and MRI of the Heart

The purpose of the guide is to supply a pragmatic advisor for citizens and basic radiologists, prepared alphabetically, basically based on illness or . The guide could be designed as a quick ebook with a few illustrations and schemes and will hide topics on cardiac MDCT and MRI. Entries more often than not comprise a brief description of pathological and scientific features, assistance on collection of the main applicable imaging approach, a schematic evaluation of capability diagnostic clues, and valuable suggestions and tips.

fMRI: From Nuclear Spins to Brain Functions

This quantity explores the innovative fMRI box from easy rules to state of the art study. It covers a vast spectrum of subject matters, together with the historical past of fMRI's improvement utilizing endogenous MR blood distinction, neurovascular coupling, pulse sequences for fMRI, quantitative fMRI; fMRI of the visible approach, auditory cortex, and sensorimotor method; genetic imaging utilizing fMRI, multimodal neuroimaging, mind bioenergetics and serve as and molecular-level fMRI.

Rethinking homeostasis : allostatic regulation in physiology and pathophysiology

Homeostasis, a key notion in biology, refers back to the tendency towards balance within the numerous physically states that make up the inner atmosphere. Examples comprise temperature rules and oxygen intake. The body's wishes, in spite of the fact that, don't stay consistent. while an organism is less than rigidity, the important fearful procedure works with the endocrine method to take advantage of assets to keep up the final viability of the organism.
