Now available in a thoroughly revised Twelfth Edition, Wintrobe's Clinical Hematology continues to be an industry leader with its ability to correlate basic science with the clinical practice of hematology. With the first edition of Wintrobe's Clinical Hematology published in 1942 clearly establishing hematology as a distinct subspecialty of Internal Medicine, the latest edition continues the influence of the Wintrobe name and helps to set this book apart from the competition.With its strong focus on the clinical aspects of hematology, the book has generated a strong following among internists and general practitioners who want a single resource to consult for their patients who present any blood related disorder. The Twelfth Edition is in full color for the first time, boasts a new editorial team, and includes expanded coverage of new medications and four new chapters on Newborn Anemias, Pathology of LHC, Spleen Tumors, and Myeloproliferative Disorders and Mast Cell Disease. A companion Website will offer the fully searchable text and an image bank.

Krone der Schöpfung? Vor 100 000 Jahren war der Homo sapiens noch ein unbedeutendes Tier, das unauffällig in einem abgelegenen Winkel des afrikanischen Kontinents lebte. Unsere Vorfahren teilten sich den Planeten mit mindestens fünf weiteren menschlichen Spezies, und die Rolle, die sie im Ökosystem spielten, war nicht größer als die von Gorillas, Libellen oder Quallen. Vor 70 000 Jahren dann vollzog sich ein mysteriöser und rascher Wandel mit dem Homo sapiens, und es war vor allem die Beschaffenheit seines Gehirns, die ihn zum Herren des Planeten und zum Schrecken des Ökosystems werden ließ. Bis heute hat sich diese Vorherrschaft stetig zugespitzt: Der Mensch hat die Fähigkeit zu schöpferischem und zu zerstörerischem Handeln wie kein anderes Lebewesen. Anschaulich, unterhaltsam und stellenweise hochkomisch zeichnet Yuval Harari die Geschichte des Menschen nach und zeigt alle großen, aber auch alle ambivalenten Momente unserer Menschwerdung.

Molecular Pathology: The Molecular Basis of Human Disease provides a current and comprehensive view of the molecular basis and mechanisms of human disease. Combining accepted principles with broader theoretical concepts and with contributions from a group of experts, the book looks into disease processes in the context of traditional pathology and their implications for translational molecular medicine. It also discusses concepts in molecular biology and genetics, recent scientific and technological advances in modern pathology, the concept of ""molecular pathogenesis"" of disease, and how disease evolves from normal cells and tissues due to perturbations in molecular pathways. The book describes the integration of molecular and cellular pathogenesis using a bioinformatics approach and a systems biology approach to disease pathogenesis. It also discusses current and future strategies in molecular diagnosis of human disease, and the impact of molecular diagnosis on treatment decisions and the practice of personalized medicine. This book is a valuable resource for students, biomedical researchers, practicing physician-scientists who undertake disease-related basic science and translational research, and pathology residents and other postdoctoral fellows. * Exam Master® web site will host "Self-assessment" questions that students can use to study for the molecular section of the board exam * Companion Web Site – will host a complete set of PowerPoint slides: to include images from the book and additional images for teaching; course materials; lecture materials * Teaches from the perspective of “integrative systems biology, which encompasses the intersection of all molecular aspects of biology, as applied to understanding human disease * Outlines the principles and practice of molecular pathology * Explains the practice of “molecular medicine and the translational aspects of molecular pathology

Fascinating narrative science that explores the next frontier in medicine and genetics through the very personal prism of the children and families gene therapy has touched. Eight-year-old Corey Haas was nearly blind from a hereditary disorder when his sight was restored through a delicate procedure that made medical history. Like something from a science fiction novel, doctors carefully injected viruses bearing healing genes into the DNA of Corey's eyes—a few days later, Corey could see, his sight restored by gene therapy. THE FOREVER FIX is the first book to tell the fascinating story of gene therapy: how it works, the science behind it, how patients (mostly children) have been helped and harmed, and how scientists learned from each trial to get one step closer to its immense promise, the promise of a "forever fix," - a cure that, by fixing problems at their genetic root, does not need further surgery or medication. Told through the voices of the children and families who have been the inspiration, experimental subjects, and successes of genetic science, THE FOREVER FIX is compelling and engaging narrative science that tells explores the future of medicine as well as the families and scientists who are breaking new ground every day.
