New and Published Books

  1. Regulating Pre-Implantation Genetic Diagnosis

    A Comparative and Theoretical Analysis

    Edited by Sheila A.M. McLean, Sarah Elliston

    Series: Biomedical Law and Ethics Library

    The successful achievement of pregnancies following pre-implantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) was first reported in April 1990. The technology is often used for patients who are at substantial risk of conceiving a pregnancy affected by a known genetic disorder, however from this technology other...

  2. Specific Gene Expression and Epigenetics

    The Interplay Between the Genome and Its Environment

    Edited by Kasirajan Ayyanathan

    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...

  3. Immunonutrition

    Interactions of Diet, Genetics, and Inflammation

    Edited by Bharat B. Aggarwal, David Heber

    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...

  8. Stem Cells: From Basic Research to Therapy, Volume 1

    Basic Stem Cell Biology, Tissue Formation during Development, and Model Organisms

    Edited by Federico Calegari, Claudia Waskow

    Series: Stem Cells

    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...

  9. Nutrigenomics and Nutrigenetics in Functional Foods and Personalized Nutrition

    Edited by Lynnette R. Ferguson

    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...

  10. Endothelium

    Molecular Aspects of Metabolic Disorders

    Edited by Ayse Basak Engin, Atilla Engin

    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...
