Molecular Mechanisms Underpinning the Development of Obesity by Clevio Nobrega PhD and Raquel Rodriguez-Lopez PhD
English | 2014 | ISBN: 3319127659 | 194 pages | PDF | 5 MB

Molecular Mechanisms Underpinning the Development of Obesity
Obesity is a multi-factorial disease, in which an excess of accumulated body fat can reach levels capable of affecting health. It results from an interplay between environmental factors, eating behavior, genes, epigenetics, and neuronal stimuli. The main aim of this book is to provide a state-of-the-art revision about the molecular mechanisms underpinning the development of obesity, reviewing the current knowledge in areas like monogenic and polygenic obesity forms, but also providing an updated view of the emerging knowledge about epigenetics, nutrigenomics, and neuronal aspects that also contribute to obesity.

Risk and Social Theory in Environmental Management

FREEDownload : Risk and Social Theory in Environmental Management

Risk and Social Theory in Environmental Management by Thomas Measham, Stewart Lockie
2012 | ISBN: 0643104127 | English | 232 pages | PDF | 12 MB

Risk and Social Theory in Environmental Management
marks a timely contribution, given that environmental management is no longer just about protecting pristine ecosystems and endangered species from anthropogenic harm; it is about calculating and managing the risks to human communities of rapid environmental and technological change.

First, the book provides a solid foundation of the social theory underpinning the nature of risk, then presents a rethinking of key concepts and methods in order to take more seriously the biophysical embeddedness of human society. Second, it presents a rich set of case studies from Australia and around the world, drawing on the latest applied research conducted by leading research institutions. In so doing, the book identifies the tensions that arise from decision making over risk and uncertainty in a contested policy environment, and provides crucial insights for addressing on-the-ground problems in an integrated way.

* First volume to address environmental risk from a social science perspective
* Latest theoretical developments
* In depth case studies of contemporary issues (e.g. climate change, water shortages)

Blood Science: Principles and Pathology

FREEDownload : Blood Science: Principles and Pathology

Blood Science: Principles and Pathology by Andrew Blann and Nessar Ahmed
English | 2014 | ISBN: 111835138X, 1118351460 | 556 pages | PDF | 22 MB

Blood Science: Principles and Pathology
Blood Science is a relatively new discipline which merges biochemistry, haematology, immunology, transfusion science and genetics. This bringing together of traditional disciplines requires a corresponding change in education and training for healthcare scientists and is written in response to this emerging need.

An introduction to the subject and an overview of the techniques used in blood science are followed by a series of chapters based on groups of analytes investigated in blood – red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets, followed by the constituents of plasma, including waste products, electrolytes, glucose, lipids, enzymes, hormones, nutrients, drugs, poisons and others.

Each chapter is supported by learning objectives, summaries and further information, and a focus is given to chapter specific case studies with interpretation to demonstrate how laboratory data in conjunction with clinical details is utilised when investigating patients with actual or suspected disease. Finally, a separate chapter offers more detailed case reports that integrate the different aspects of blood science.

Undergraduate students taking blood science modules as part of their BSc programmes in Biomedical and Healthcare Sciences will appreciate the level of integration between clinical biochemistry and haematology. In addition, this book will provide suitable initial reading for those students embarking on blood science modules on MSc programmes and will be of value to new graduates entering the profession and starting their career in blood science departments by supplementing practice-based training with the required theoretical underpinning.

Design Research – Theories, Methodologies, and Product Modelling by S. Culley

Design Research – Theories, Methodologies, and Product Modelling by S. Culley
English | Oct 10, 2001 | ISBN: 1860583547 | 736 Pages | PDF | 50,7 MB

Design Research – Theories, Methodologies, and Product Modelling by S. Culley
"Design Research – Theories, Methodologies and Product Modelling" is one of four books resulting from the contributions to the 13th International Conference on Engineering Design (ICED 01), held in August 2001 in Glasgow Scotland. The ICED conference series was initiated by Workshop Design-Konstruktion (WDK) in 1981 and has grown to become one of the most pre-eminent conferences in the field. From the beginning, ICED has offered a platform for the discussion of new trends, developments and research findings in the areas of product development, design support techniques, design processes, design science and design education. ICED conferences cover all aspects and disciplines of engineering design, and over the years have become the forum for establishing, maintaining and improving contacts and cooperation between researchers and engineers working in engineering design from countries all over the world. "Design Research – Theories, Methodologies and Product Modelling" covers two main groups – firstly, those concerned with underpinning design theories, research frameworks and methodologies, and, secondly, those concerned with the representation of products and systems. Also included is an invited paper that reviews the contribution of ICED to engineering design research and practice. The first section goes on to address issues about the nature and philosophy of design, different design theories, how to model and manage complexity in design, research methodologies, and models of the design process, creativity and innovation. The second section is on product and system modelling. Contributions highlighting the difficulties and methods of product data management, the use of sketching and vague models in conceptual design, functional and feature-based modelling, and CAD are provided. The latest applications and developments in virtual reality, and standards for exchange of product information all go to make up a comprehensive review of current progress.

Analysis of Complex Diseases: A Mathematical Perspective

FREEDownload : Analysis of Complex Diseases: A Mathematical Perspective

Guanyu Wang PhD, "Analysis of Complex Diseases: A Mathematical Perspective"
English | ISBN: 1466572213 | 2014 | 222 pages | PDF | 5 MB

Analysis of Complex Diseases: A Mathematical Perspective
A complex disease involves many etiological and risk factors operating at multiple levels-molecular, cellular, organismal, and environmental. The incidence of such diseases as cancer, obesity, and diabetes are increasing in occurrence, urging us to think fundamentally and use a broader perspective to identify their connection and revolutionize treatments. The understanding of biological data derived from studying diseases can be enhanced by theories and mathematical models, which clarify the big picture and help to reveal the overarching mechanisms that govern complex biological phenomena.

Focusing on diseases related to cellular energy metabolism, such as cancer and diabetes, Analysis of Complex Diseases: A Mathematical Perspective presents a holistic approach for illuminating the molecular mechanisms of these diseases and the evolutionary underpinning of their simultaneous epidemics. Using mathematics to identify patterns of deviation from normality, or the healthy state-spanning multiple levels from molecules to the organism-the author identifies a range of dynamical behaviors that correspond to either cellular physiology or pathology. He uses the information from multiple levels in order to develop a unified theory, which includes the discovery that certain diseases may stem from well-evolved, useful mechanisms activated in the wrong context.

This book is divided into three parts. Part I focuses on the organismal level to describe normal physiology and how the body as a whole meets its functional requirements. Part II addresses the subcellular, molecular level to elucidate the organizing principles of cellular biomolecules to meet the demands of the organism. Part III examines complex diseases by combining information from the organismal level and the molecular level, offering a paradigm that can be extended to the study of other categories of diseases.
