Complete Medical Guide for Disease Volume V: Ankylosing Spondylitis By Medical Professionals & National Institute of Health
eBook (ePub): $1.99
Ankylosing spondylitis (AS, from Greek ankylos, stiff; spondylos, vertebrae), previously known as Bekhterev's disease, Bekhterev syndrome, and Marie-Strümpell disease, is a chronic inflammatory... More > disease of the axial skeleton with variable involvement of peripheral joints and nonarticular structures. AS is a form of spondyloarthritis, a chronic, inflammatory arthritis and autoimmune disease.[1] It mainly affects joints in the spine and the sacroiliac joint in the pelvis, and can cause eventual fusion of the spine. It is a member of the group of the spondyloarthropathies with a strong genetic predisposition. Complete fusion results in a complete rigidity of the spine, a condition known as "bamboo spine". As of 2012, no cure is known for AS, although treatments and medications are available to reduce symptoms and pain.< Less
Complete Medical Guide for Disease Volume XIX; Marfan Syndrome By Medical Professionals & National Institute of Health
eBook (ePub): $1.99
Marfan syndrome (also called Marfan's syndrome) is a genetic disorder of the connective tissue. People with Marfan's tend to be unusually tall, with long limbs and long, thin fingers. The syndrome... More > is inherited as a dominant trait, carried by the gene FBN1, which encodes the connective protein fibrillin-1. People have a pair of FBN1 genes. Because it is dominant, people who have inherited one affected FBN1 gene from either parent will have Marfan syndrome. Marfan syndrome has a range of expressions, from mild to severe. The most serious complications are defects of the heart valves and aorta. It may also affect the lungs, the eyes, the dural sac surrounding the spinal cord, the skeleton and the hard palate. In addition to being a connective protein that forms the structural support for tissues outside the cell, the normal fibrillin-1 protein binds to another protein, transforming growth factor beta (TGF-β).< Less

More > soil-microbe interactions, and water samples. A sample can contain more than 10,000 species, but how quantify statistically? Concepts like microbiota, metagenome and microbiome are a bit confusing, microbiota refers to taxonomically identification the community of microorganisms; the metagenome conforms the genes and genomes of the microbiota, including plasmids, and highlights the genetic potential of the population; whereas the microbiome refers to the whole conjunct of genes and genomes of the microbiota, as well as the products of the microbiota and the host environment. This short book tries to put light on the Taxonomic Diversity and its measurement using metagenomics, about the statistical methods and the methodologies.< Less
