Biomarkers of Brain Injury and Neurological Disorders

Biomarkers of Brain Injury and Neurological Disorders

Kevin K. W. Wang, Zhiqun Zhang, Firas H. Kobeissy

October 28, 2014

This book explores the recent advances in the techniques and platforms used in biomarker research that have revolutionized the way we study, diagnose, and treat brain injury conditions. The contributors describe different biomarker studies pertaining to brain injury and other neurological disorders...

Stem Cells: From Basic Research to Therapy, Volume Two: Tissue Homeostasis and Regeneration during Adulthood, Applications, Legislation and Ethics

Stem Cells: From Basic Research to Therapy, Volume Two: Tissue Homeostasis and Regeneration during Adulthood, Applications, Legislation and Ethics

Federico Calegari, Claudia Waskow

June 03, 2014

The second volume in the Stem Cells series concentrates on the mechanisms of stem cell regeneration in the adult organism with a view towards understanding how lost tissue can be replaced during adulthood and aging. The second focus of this volume is on stem cell identification and manipulation,...

Specific Gene Expression and Epigenetics: The Interplay Between the Genome and Its Environment

Specific Gene Expression and Epigenetics: The Interplay Between the Genome and Its Environment

Kasirajan Ayyanathan

March 18, 2014

This new volume on gene expression and epigenetics discusses environmental effects related to specific gene expression. The book also shows methods for bioinformatic analysis of the epigenome. The book is broken into two sections: the first looks at eukaryotic DNA methylation and the second...

Immunonutrition: Interactions of Diet, Genetics, and Inflammation

Immunonutrition: Interactions of Diet, Genetics, and Inflammation

Bharat B. Aggarwal, David Heber

March 17, 2014

The interaction of immune function and nutrition underlies the low-grade chronic inflammation involved in the etiology of many common obesity-associated and age-related chronic disease conditions. This close interaction is the genesis of the term immunonutrition, which represents a new...

Stem Cells and Neurodegenerative Diseases

Stem Cells and Neurodegenerative Diseases

Laurent Lescaudron, Julien Rossignol, Gary L. Dunbar

March 17, 2014

This book explores the potential of stem cells for ameliorating the quality of life of patients with neurological and neurodegenerative diseases. It discusses results of pre-clinical investigations and case studies on the effects of stem cell transplantation on cell death, as well as to promote/...

Investigations in Yeast Functional Genomics and Molecular Biology

Investigations in Yeast Functional Genomics and Molecular Biology

Matthew Eckwahl

February 24, 2014

This book examines conserved pathways mediating cell cycle progression and cell polarity establishment. It includes examples of yeast, regulatory circuits, and feedback regulation, with emphasis on system-wide approaches. It also covers protein interaction networks and trait locus analysis and...

Stem Cells: From Basic Research to Therapy, Volume 1: Basic Stem Cell Biology, Tissue Formation during Development, and Model Organisms

Stem Cells: From Basic Research to Therapy, Volume 1: Basic Stem Cell Biology, Tissue Formation during Development, and Model Organisms

Federico Calegari, Claudia Waskow

February 07, 2014

The first volume of Stem Cells deals with the fundamental principles that govern embryonic and somatic stem cell biology. Historically, the identification and characterization of such pathways and general rules of stemness occurred during embryonic development and Volume I reflects this with topics...

Nutrigenomics and Nutrigenetics in Functional Foods and Personalized Nutrition

Nutrigenomics and Nutrigenetics in Functional Foods and Personalized Nutrition

Lynnette R. Ferguson

August 13, 2013

While functional foods have become a reasonably well-established concept, personalized nutrition is still treated with skepticism by many. The recognition that people would have different nutrient requirements, or perceive foods in different ways, raises several concerns—some real, some not so real...

Endothelium: Molecular Aspects of Metabolic Disorders

Endothelium: Molecular Aspects of Metabolic Disorders

Ayse Basak Engin, Atilla Engin

May 29, 2013

The function and life span of endothelial cells have a large impact upon the quality and expectancy of an individual's life. During low perfusion, the adaptation of different cells to hypoxia precipitate the aggressive progression of diseases. Although the clinical studies have convincingly shown...

Cardiac Regeneration using Stem Cells

Cardiac Regeneration using Stem Cells

Keiichi Fukuda, Shinsuke Yuasa

April 10, 2013

To achieve cardiac regeneration using pluripotent stem (iPS) cells, researchers must understand iPS cell generation methods, cardiomyocyte differentiation protocols, cardiomyocyte characterization methods, and tissue engineering. This book presents the current status and future possibilities in...

Cardiovascular Diseases: Nutritional and Therapeutic Interventions

Cardiovascular Diseases: Nutritional and Therapeutic Interventions

Nilanjana Maulik, Ph.D.

April 09, 2013

With cardiovascular disease remaining one of the primary causes of morbidity and mortality worldwide, there is a great need to further understand the molecular basis of this disease class and develop new therapeutic or preventative measures. Cardiovascular Diseases: Nutritional and Therapeutic...

Stem Cells and Bone Tissue

Stem Cells and Bone Tissue

Rajkumar Rajendram, Victor R. Preedy, Vinood Patel

January 23, 2013

Stem cells potentially offer a novel therapeutic platform to treat bone disease. They also help the scientist understand the molecular and cellular aetiology of bone disorders. Gaining knowledge on the nature and application of stem cell sciences is a prerequisite for understanding their potential...
