greenspans basic & clinical endocronology eight edition

The title page of Basic & Clinical Endocrinology takes on a slightly different character in this, its 8th edition. In tribute to the outgoing coeditor and originator of this text, it will henceforth be referred to as Greenspan’s Basic & Clinical Endocrinology. Like its predecessors, the 8th edition provides the most up-to-date information on the basic science and clinical aspects of endocrinology, covering everything from the molecular biology of thyroid hormone signal transduction to the clinical approach to the patient with Cushing’s syndrome.

There are several new features in this edition that warrant attention. We have introduced completely new chapters
on Evidence-Based Endocrinology (Chapter 4) and the Neurohypophysis (Chapter 6). Chapter 19 has been expandedto include discussion of the major causes of hypoglycemia in the pediatric population, and Chapter 8 has been extensively rewritten following the addition of Dr. Cooper and Dr. Ladenson to the growing list of authors contributing to this text.

This book, Harrison’s Endocrinology, second edition,is a compilation of chapters related to the specialty of endocrinology.

While Harrison’s Endocrinology is classic in its organization, readers will sense the impact of the scientific renaissance as they explore the individual chapters in each section. In addition to the dramatic advances emanating from genetics and molecular biology, the introduction of an unprecedented number of new drugs, particularly for the
management of diabetes and osteoporosis, is transforming the field of endocrinology.

Lipoproteins in Diabetes Mellitus

Diabetes mellitus has become epidemic on a global scale, and millions of new cases are diagnosed every year. The epidemic of diabetes mellitus is expected to result in one of the steepest rises in human morbidity and mortality ever observed outside of wartime. Insulin resistance is a hallmark of pre-diabetes and type 2 diabetes mellitus, and is characterized by impaired insulin-signaling transduction. Authoritative and comprehensive, Lipoproteins in Diabetes Mellitus details the many changes wrought by insulin resistance and diabetes mellitus on lipid and lipoprotein metabolism. The book begins by summarizing the various techniques to measure lipoproteins and their subclasses. The mechanisms by which insulin resistance and diabetes mellitus increase risk for atherosclerosis, diabetic retinopathy, and diabetic nephropathy are then explored in detail. Finally, the effects of lifestyle modification and the results of clinical trials using established and investigational drugs are discussed.

An invaluable contribution to the literature, Lipoproteins in Diabetes Mellitus is a comprehensive reference on the clinical and scientific aspects of lipoproteins in diabetes. It will have a long-lasting and significant effect on the medical management of people with diabetes.
