Proteomics: Advances in biomarker discovery By Shara Cohen
eBook (PDF): $23.42
Download immediately.
Proteomics is an exciting area of research that holds promise for the future. It is widely accepted that proteomics holds the potential to identify new diagnostic and or prognostic biomarkers, and... More > drug targets for the development of new therapeutic approaches for fighting disease. Proteomics, the large scale analysis of gene expression at the protein level incorporates structural, interaction and expression proteomics. Using expression proteomics, the aim is to detect and identify all, or a subset, of the proteins in a given sample and find out which of these proteins are present, absent, or differentially expressed in a related sample subject to as specific variation.… Meeting’s Chair: Dr Ayesha De Souza, St. George's, University of London, UK.< Less

1,6-Hexamethylene Diamine (HDA) as a Urinary Biomarker for Dermal and Inhalation Exposure to 1,6-Hexamethylene Diisocyanate (HDI) in Automotive Spray-Painters By Linda Gaines
eBook (PDF): $3.00
Download immediately.
Urinary 1,6-hexamethylene diamine (HDA) has been indicated as a potential biomarker for systemic exposure to 1,6-hexamethylene diisocyanate (HDI). Our objective was to establish a quantitative and... More > time-dependent relationship between urine HDA levels and inhalation and dermal exposure to HDI. Urine HDA levels, creatinine concentrations, and specific gravity along with dermal and breathing-zone levels of HDI were measured in automotive spray painters. Dermal exposure and inhalation exposure levels, adjusted for the type of respirator worn, and creatinine concentration were observed to be significant predictors of urine HDA levels. The use of coveralls, type of respirator worn, smoker status, type of painting booth, and multiple painters at the shop were found to significantly affect urine HDA. Our results indicate that urine HDA is a useful biomarker for systemic HDI exposure through the skin and lungs and emphasize the need for proper dermal and inhalation protection for workers.< Less

Quantitative Exposure Assessment By Stephen Rappaport, Lawrence Kupper
Hardcover: $49.99

Long-term exposures to toxic chemicals can pose risks to human health. In order to properly assess and minimize such risks, it is necessary to measure chemical levels in the air or other... More > environmental media. Since exposure levels vary across groups, between persons (in a given group), and within persons (over time), appropriate statistical analysis of exposure data typically requires the use of linear mixed effects models. This book applies such statistical models to exposure data, with emphasis upon airborne chemical exposures in the workplace and in the ambient environment.< Less

Natural Products, Chemical Compounds, and Gene Targets for Weight Loss: Discoveries from Genetic Interactions By PharmTao.com (Editor)

Body weight is decided by the balance between food intake and energy expenditure. Some genes have been found to be important signal molecules in the cells and play crucial roles in the central... More > regulation of food intake, feeding behavior, and energy homeostasis. These genes are potential targets and biomarkers for the treatment of obesity and associated diseases such as diabetes and cardiovascular diseases. Many natural products, such as extracts and compounds from fruits and herbs, have weight loss effects and can protect against high-fat-diet induced obesity. These natural products and compounds can be used in food ingredients, diet therapy, or drug components for the treatment of obesity. Recent scientific studies have elucidated the molecular mechanisms of these products. The weight loss effects of these products may be mediated through adjusting genes involved in energy homeostasis.

Susto: Fright and Soul Loss in the Spanish Speaking World By Brendan Bombaci

Susto is a both a culture bound syndrome and an idiom of distress with many variations around a consensus fundamental core set of symptoms – mostly somatic but some psychological – caused... More > mostly by fright and stress. It is found mostly in Central and South America, but also among Mexican American populations, and to a lesser degree in Spain; it does not occur throughout the whole Spanish-speaking world. The DSM IV only lists susto in Appendix I and relates it to Major Depressive Disorder (MDD), Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), and lastly to Somatoform Disorders (SD) which have no apparent medical cause. Anthropologically, it has been studied for associations to physiological symptoms via biomarker analyses, with positive correlations, but also reported by some populations to be a causal factor in major debilitating illness (mostly diabetes, but also cancer) and even death, where research has provided tentative evidence that neither is the case. Herein: causes, treatments, and cultural descriptions.< Less
