By Derek Leroith (Eds.)

Quantity 2 has curious about features of the pituitary gland either anterior (growth hormone and prolactin receptors, and GH motion) and posterior (vasopressin) pituitary. furthermore, thyroid melanoma and steroidogenic enzymes and precocious puberty are coated. eventually, the "hot themes" comprise leptin and development issue signaling.

Principles of Gender-Specific Medicine, Second Edition

The sphere of gender-specific drugs examines how general human biology and body structure differs among women and men and the way the analysis and therapy of affliction differs as a functionality of gender. This revealing learn covers quite a few stipulations that predominantly ensue in males in addition stipulations that predominantly ensue in girls.

Obesity: Prevention and Treatment

The superiority of weight problems within the usa and the remainder of the industrialized global has skyrocketed long ago two decades. associated with center sickness, diabetes, high blood pressure, and metabolic syndrome, it's also the top reason for osteoarthritis and the second one major reason for melanoma. With contributions from prime specialists within the box.
