Endocrinology of the Heart by W. Kaufmann, G. Wamback (auth.), Prof. Dr. W. Kaufmann,

By W. Kaufmann, G. Wamback (auth.), Prof. Dr. W. Kaufmann, Prof. Dr. G. Wambach (eds.)

Beginning with the morphology of the myoendocrine phone and the biochemistry and body structure of cardiac hor mones, the booklet describes pathophysiological findings and speak about their medical relevance in congestive center failure, arterial high blood pressure, renal insufficiency, and cirrhosis of the liver. in addition, facts is gifted for the position of the center as a goal organ for varied endocrine components equivalent to thyroid hormones, catecholamines, renin-angiotensin, development hormones and endogenous opioids.

Molecular Genetics of Immunoglobulin

Our realizing of the molecular genetics of immunoglobulins has been significantly complicated via the applying of recombinant DNA know-how. This new quantity within the well known sequence New accomplished Biochemistry includes 8 chapters that draw jointly reports summarising the study into immunoglobulins and the association, rearrangement and expression in their gene constitution.

Osteoimmunology: Interactions of the Immune and Skeletal Systems

Bone and the immune process are either complicated tissues, which, respectively, keep watch over the skeleton and the body's responses to invading pathogens. severe interactions among those organ structures usually occur, particularly in the advance of immune cells within the bone marrow and for the functionality of bone cells in healthiness and ailment.
