Dynamics of arterial flow by Stewart Wolf( Book )
9 editions published in 1979 in English and held by 300 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This volume contains the edited transcript of the Second Topical Colloquium based on leads developed at the original conference on the artery and the process of arteriosclerosis (the Lindau Conference of 1970). The first follow-up colloquium on "The Smooth Muscle of the Artery" was held in Heidelberg in 1973. Planning for the present one was undertaken by the editors with Dr. C. Forbes Dewey, Department of Mechanical Engineering, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, Massachusetts. The meeting itself was held June, 1976 at the Delaware Water Gap, Pennsylvania, under the joint sponsorship of Totts Gap Institute and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology with financial support from the American Heart Association, the Office of Naval Research, and the Smith, Kline and French Company. The objective of the series of meetings, beginning at Lindau has been to examine from an interdisciplinary and international point of view the fundamental physiologic and pathophysiologic processes pertinent to the development of arteriosclerosis. This colloquium sought to examine critically the evidence relating hemodynamic forces to atherogenesis, to reconcile disparate findings and interpretations in so far as possible; and to make a synthesis of the present state of knowledge of the dynamics of arterial flow

Composition and function of cell membranes : application to the pathophysiology of muscle diseases by Stewart Wolf( Book )
7 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 297 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The present volume contains the edited transcript of a Totts Gap Colloquium held May 19-21, 1980 sponsored by the Muscular Dystrophy Association. The aim of the colloquium was to bring into focus data relating to cell membranes that might contribute to understanding the pathogenic mechanism of Duchenne muscular dystrophy. A major impediment to progress in understanding the pathogenesis of muscular dystrophy has been the failure, so far, to identify the basic genetic defect. Pending the identification of the genetic lesion in Duchenne dystrophy and, in view of scattered but persistent indications of a basic membrane disturbance, it seemed worthwhile to explore in open dialogue the current state of knowledge of membrane morphology and chemistry with an eye to possible leads for further investigation. The participants, drawn from a variety of interested disciplines, attempted to synthesize and reconcile their findings and to identify crucial areas of ignorance in need of exploration. For the most part they avoided specialized jargon and spoke in a language that could be understood by the rest of the group. Apart from providing a review of widely varying approaches to the study of the composition and behavior of cell membranes, the discussions brought together current thinking on strategies and approaches to the study of the pathogenesis of muscular dystrophy. Already the personal contacts made at the colloquium have led to new inter-institutional collaborative investigations. The discussions were recorded, transcribed, edited and to some extent, rearranged to fit into a sequence of chapters

Genetic analysis of the X chromosome : studies of Duchenne muscular dystrophy and related disorders by Henry F Epstein( Book )
6 editions published in 1982 in English and held by 288 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The present volume contains the edited transcript of a colloquium sponsored by the Muscular Dystrophy Association and held at Mountain Shadows Inn, Scottsdale, Arizona, December 14-16, 1981. The participants, geneticists, molecular biologists, biochemists and clinicians, explored in open dialogue ways and means of identifying and characterizing the genetic alterations responsible for X-linked muscular dystrophies, especially the Duchene type. The clinicians, who urged the use of properly diagnosed and documented case material for study, emphasized the troublesome fact that the primary phenotypic expression of the gene (or genes) involved in the muscular dystrophies is yet to be identified. Discussions centered on the applicability of recent methodological advances in DNA chemistry and molecular biology, cytogenetics and cell biology to mapping the X chromosome. Despite ignorance of the basic disorder in the muscular dystrophies, DNA technologies and chromosome mapping strategies for the discovery of genetic defects and phenotypic expressions were proposed. Beyond its stimulating intellectual exchange, the colloquium yielded important benefits. The participants agreed to share needed cell lines and endonuclease restriction enzymes and to organize interlaboratory communication and collaborative efforts to accelerate progress in the quest for the genetic lesion in Duchenne muscular dystrophy.

The Smooth muscle of the artery by Workshop Conference on the Smooth Muscle of the Arterial Wall( Book )
10 editions published between 1973 and 1975 in English and held by 275 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This volume contains the edited proceedings of a workshop conference, THE SMOOTH MUSCLE OF THE ARTERIAL WALL, held at Max Planck Haus, Heidelberg, West Germany, on the occasion of the dedication of the new Myocardial Infarct Institute of the University of Heidelberg. The conference was a sequel to one held three years earlier at Lindau, West Germany, on THE ARTERY AND THE PROCESS OF ARTERIOSCLEROSIS. The earlier conference examined available data and conflicting theories on the pathogenesis of arteriosclerosis. A major yield of this gathering was a consensus that smooth muscle cell proliferation in the sub-endothelial space is a fundamental feature of atherogenesis. It was, therefore, decided in a second conference to bring together existing knowledge of arterial smooth muscle and of the structure and function of smooth muscle in general, Accordingly an international and interdisciplinary group of experts were gathered together to assess current knowledge, to attempt reconciliation of disparate data and synthesis of widely scattered information and to identify critical areas of ignorance. As before, the conference was conducted in the form of a dialogue with only a minimal number of formal presentations
Gene expression in muscle by Richard C Strohman( Book )
6 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 265 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This volume contains the edited transcript of an interdisciplinary colloquium held at Totts Gap Medical Research Laboratories, Bangor, Pennsylvania on October 12-14, 1983 under the sponsorship of the Muscular Dystrophy Association. The aim was to illuminate the pathogenic mechanism of Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy through a synthesis of available data on gene expression in muscle. In the informal give and take of the colloquium, the participants found themselves engaged in mutual education and enlightenment as they attempted to put together what is known and to highlight what is not known about the subject. Significant research into muscle as a tissue and muscle disease began only about 50 years ago although the description of muscular dystrophy by Guillaume Benjamin Amand Duchenne de Boulogne had been published in 1862. By 1943 it was clear that Duchenne muscular dystrophy was an X-linked genetic disorder. Up to the present, however, the offending gene has not been identified although its location on the short arm of the X chromosome has been approximately determined. The gene product associated with the initial disturbance in skeletal muscle has also remained elusive up to now. Moreover, investigations into the mechanisms of the muscle degeneration have been hampered by ignorance of the fundamental phenotypic expression of the genetic disorder. The pathological picture of muscle degeneration with fat and collagen replacement of muscle cells is familiar, but as yet there has been no clear identification of the initial lesion. It has not even been established whether the basic disturbance is impaired control of muscle growth, accelerated catabolism in muscle cells, or defective structural or contractile protein synthesis. Most investigators believe that the flagrant morphologic changes seen in muscle biopsies of even early cases of dystrophy are secondary to a more unitary and fundamental disorder of gene expression. It is known that approximately 1/3 of cases of Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy are the result of a new mutation, presumably in the grandparents, that is passed along to the patient's mother. This high rate of mutation encourages the speculation that the disorder involves a single gene. Although the clearest phenotypic marker, increased serum concentration of creatine kinase, is usually detectable at birth and often in the amniotic fluid of the fetus, morphologic changes in muscle have not been detected prior to the onset of symptoms at age 2-4. The elusiveness of the initial lesion in vivo has led investigators to seek it in cultures of developing muscle cells. Work with these cultures has uncovered much knowledge of myoblast differentiation and muscle cell maturation but has shown the process to be unexpectedly complex. Although gene expression in muscle proteins has been observed to vary from the embryonic state to the neonatal and to the adult form, the morphological characteristics of embryonic fibers are indistinguishable from their neonatal and adult counterparts. Nevertheless, the different muscle protein isoforms must represent the expression of different genes or at least different gene transcript processing for some proteins. The pertinent data and interpretations from a variety of approaches to these problems have been arranged in the following chapters in what we hope is a logical sequence. The editors acknowledge with thanks the invaluable assistance of Joy Colarusso Lowe, who with skill, patience and precision, produced the manuscript for publication
Dilemmas in diabetes : [Proceedings] by Stewart Wolf( Book )
13 editions published between 1974 and 1977 in English and Undetermined and held by 260 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This volume contains the edited proceedings of the Totts Gap Colloquium on Diabetes Mellitus. The Colloquium, lasting two and a half days, was organized mainly as a dialogue among experts in the field with different disciplinary backgrounds and, to some extent, differing points of view. The effort was to synthesize existing knowledge, reconciling disparate data and interpretation, and pointing up important areas of ignorance. Thus, the book should serve not only as a summary of recent information on diabetes, but as a reliable guide to the practicing physician as he wades through often conflicting etiologic dogmas and therapeutic practices

Life stress and essential hypertension; a study of circulatory adjustments in man by Stewart Wolf( Book )
7 editions published between 1955 and 2012 in English and held by 169 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Essential hypertension has proved to be one of the most elusive medical problems of our day. Although the underlying hemodynamic changes are fairly well understood, the mechanisms whereby the changes are brought about and the factors responsible for activating them are still obscure. In view of the oft-heard implications that "wear and tear" and "stresses of modern civilization" have something to do with the process, the authors have set out to review the data linking circulatory adjustments to life experiences. In this volume we have tried to pull together into a coherent statement the results of studies on cardiovascular function carried out over the past ten years in the laboratories of Cornell New York Hospital, including a few supplementary observations made in the Department of Medicine at the University of Oklahoma and the Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation"--Preface.
