Authoritative researchers and clinicians review our latest understanding of andrology in both basic science and clinical medicine. Topics range from explaining the biology of androgens-from several different perspectives-to illuminating their role in the development and modulation of physiologic systems. Authors demonstrate in a number of cases that testosterone can be a useful adjunct to the treatment of a variety of disease states. Other chapters consider important topics such as androgens use in athletes, the potential of androgens to improve physical function and quality of life in older men, and androgens as potential male contraceptives.

Pharmacology, Biology, and Clinical Applications of AndrogensCurrent Status and Future Prospects Edited by Shalender Bhasin, Henry L. Gabelnick, Jeffrey M. Spieler,Ronald S. Swerdloff, Christina Wang, and Chuck Kelly As agents that affect the male primary and accessory sex organs,androgens--particularly the hormones testosterone andandrosterone--play a critical role in the development,functionality, and overall health of the male reproductive system.However, since androgens also have far-ranging effects onmetabolism, neurological activity, and behavior, scientistsexploring the contraceptive or therapeutic potential of androgensneed reliable, up-to-date information on the complex biologicalactivities of these agents. Pharmacology, Biology, and Clinical Applications of Androgens:Current Status and Future Prospects presents contributions fromleading investigators around the world, offering a focused,state-of-the-art summary of the central issues and controversies inandrogen research. The book is arranged into sections coveringandrogen physiology, androgens and the prostate, and theneurobehavioral and metabolic effects of androgens--as well astheir role in disease therapy and male contraception, and thevarious delivery systems for each application. Every chapter in thetext provides an expert opinion on a cutting-edge topic in thefield while highlighting the key points of dissent and disagreementwithin the scientific community. This approach is intended tofoster a deeper understanding of the status of androgen researchand lay the groundwork for future investigations in eacharea. This book explores such current topics as: * Androgen regulation of Sertoli cell function * Testosterone and spermatogenesis * Androgen effects on benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) andprostate cancer * Androgen effects on cognitive processes, sexual function, andaggressive behavior * Contraceptive efficacy of hormonal suppression of spermatogenesis * The latest transdermal and implantation delivery systems forandrogens Offering multifaceted coverage of the field, Pharmacology, Biology,and Clinical Applications of Androgens is an indispensable aid toall basic scientists and clinical investigators interested in thebiological actions of either natural or synthetic androgens.

"This book has been written to give a concise review of the role of each nutrient in health and disease. It is designed to provide the fundamental information about each nutrient's absorption, forms in blood, excretion, metabolic role in the cellular enzymes, and deficiency signs and symptoms, as well as food rich in each nutrient. Diseases involved with each nutrient's absorption, excretion, and metabolism are given."--[preface].

While menopause in women is a well-established and well documented phenomenon, the andropause in men is a relatively new concept. The terms male menopauseand andropausesuggest that this is an abrupt phenomenon related to a sudden deprivation of sex hormones. Unlike the menopause, which has a relatively sudden onset, the andropause appears to be a gradual process. It has been hypothesized that an androgen deficiency might develop with aging. Androgens and the Aging Male explores this hypothesis. The book focuses on the gradually progressive problems related to the decline in androgens that can occur with advancement of age. It examines the debate about the extent to which an age-dependent decline in androgens leads to health problems that affect or impair the quality of life, and the theory behind it. In addition, it reviews studies evaluating the effects of androgen supplementation. Androgens and the Aging Male comprehensively covers androgen function and how it changes over time.

The maintenance of arterial blood pressure and the distribution of blood flow to the various organs of the body depends on the control of the pumping action of the heart and of the resistance of the vascular beds in the individual organs in accordance with their metabolic needs. These controls are achieved through the integrated actions of circulat ing hormones, humoral factors that are synthesized and released in the heart and blood vessels, and the autonomic nervous system. The heart, however, is not only the target for the direct and indirect actions of a number of hormones and humoral factors, it is also an endocrine organ in the traditional sense, synthesizing and secreting into the circulation chemical factors that act at distant sites. In this treatise, Hormones and the Heart in Health and Disease, we interpret "endocrinology" broadly and consider traditional hormones as well as autocoids that are secreted by the heart or that act on it. In this overview, the relevant chapters are indicated in parentheses. The discovery of atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP; atrial natriuretic factor, ANF) in the 1980s indicated that the heart does indeed function as an endocrine organ in the classic sense. ANP (Chapter I) is synthesized in the heart and secreted into the circulation for actions on the kidney, where it is a potent natriuretic agent, and on the vasculature, where it causes vasodilation. ANP can also affect myocardial contractility.

This updated third edition includes outstanding coverage of basic anatomy and physiology, plus the mechanisms of disease and pathologic conditions associated with each body system. Two unifying themes are integrated in this comprehensive text: the complementary nature of structure and function, and homeostasis. Homeostasis is used to show how normal structure and function are maintained, whereas failures of homeostasis are shown as basic mechanisms of disease. The reader is drawn into the subject by a clear, straightforward style, superior illustrations, and student-friendly features. Included FREE with the softcover text is Body Spectrum: Mosby's Electronic Anatomy Coloring Book CD-ROM. Clinical Applications (answers in back of book) at the end of each chapter are short case studies with questions that tie theory to practice A Chemistry Appendix discusses basic chemistry concepts needed for understanding basic anatomy and physiology Cadaver photos go one step beyond illustrations by providing a true visualization of the human body Detailed Outline Summaries at the end of each chapter provide the student with an excellent recap of important chapter content. Pathologic Conditionsappendix provides student with a series of tables that summarize specific pathological conditions by characteristic Medical Terminologyappendix provides a list of word parts commonly used in terms related to medicine and pathology along with tips on dissecting complex terms to determine their meanings Clinical Laboratory Values appendix provides commonly observed values for human body content and physiological conditions along with their normal ranges Boxed essays highlighting clinical examples to reinforce the concepts of how disease affects normal function and how therapies can restore normal function; health and wellness issues to reinforce the basic concepts of human structure and function by applying them in practical ways to current problems in health Study Tipswith collaborative learning activities are now listed at the end of each chapter to assist the student in how best to study the chapter materials, making this text even more student friendly than ever before. A new design and updated art program makes this edition even more attractive and motivating for the beginning anatomy and physiology student
