Book Description:
"Advances in Medicine and Biology" presents original research results on the leading edge of medicine and biology. Each article has been carefully selected in an attempt to present substantial research results across a broad spectrum. This book discusses research on topics such as congenital diaphragmatic hernia; strategies to obtain lectins from distinct sources; the role of N-Acetylcysteine on the prophilaxys of contrast induced nephropathy; pharmacokinetically-guided chemotherapy with fluorouracil; arabinose as a very rare substance to bind mushroom lectins; liver regeneration of oral supplementation with carbohydrates together with branched-chain amino acids; the feedforward and feedback loop between ChREPB and its target genes in the regulation of glucose and lipid metabolism; psychosocial issues in lung transplantation in children; application of nitrous oxide and current inhalational anesthetics; fibroblast growth factor-23, phosphate metabolism and risk for cardiovascular disease; and CPAP treatment with heating humidifiation in OSAS patients.
