Why men die first : how to lengthen your lifespan by Marianne J Legato( Book )

8 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and Russian and held by 801 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It is a universal fact that men die before women. But the causes of this have long remained unexplored. In this trailblazing book, Dr. Marianne Legato--an expert in gender-specific health--examines the reasons behind men's fragility and explains what they need to do to live longer, showing how the forces of culture and biology conspire against male longevity. She delves into such problems as why the male fetus is at greater risk, why boys have a hard time adjusting to school, how elevated levels of the stress hormone cortisol make men more prone to aggression, and why they are more likely to die from cardiac arrest or cancer and even depression. She also offers specific advice on what men can do to live better and longer.--From publisher description

The Developing heart : clinical implications of its molecular biology and physiology by Marianne J Legato( Book )

8 editions published between 1984 and 1985 in English and Spanish and held by 168 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Heart disease, despite recent improvements, continues to be the single most im portant cause of death and disability in the United States. It is estimated that the direct cost of medical care for cardiovascular disease is $6 billion dollars per year. Data compiled by the National Center for Health Statistics reveal a dramatic de cline in deaths from cardiovascular disease in the United States (greater than 20% since 1968). This phenomenon has been the subject of in-depth study. It is clear that the decline is real and not a statistical artifact. The decrease in mortality has been noted in all sections of the country, though the onset and rate of decline varies in different regions of the country. Both primary prevention, through changes in risk factors, and basic and applied research leading to earlier recognition and im proved treatment have contributed to the decline. They do not fully explain the decline. Further research is needed to clarify this issue. Clinical cardiologists have been exposed to a veritable explosion of new knowl edge of mechanisms of cardiovascular disease, development of new improved non-invasive diagnostic techniques, and the pharmacodynamics of agents affect ing the cardiovascular system. This new knowledge results from contributions made by individuals from diverse disciplines including cellular and molecular bi ologists, geneticists, hematologists, cardiologists, and cardiovascular surgeons
The stressed heart by Marianne J Legato( Book )

8 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 139 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Stressed Heart is truly unique in concept and will provide an eXCItmg adventure to the reader no matter what his or her field of expertise and interest. The title, although quite appropriate, does not adequately indicate the range of topics considered or the rational interrelationships among them. Indeed, perhaps the most important point to be learned from the book is that a serious consideration of the response of the heart to mechanical overload, ischemia, or excessive humoral stimuli must include evaluation of each of the topics in the table of contents. The heart responds to stress through alterations in both structure and function. How these changes are brought about is the subject of the initial chapters. These consider first the normal regulation of gene expression in the heart, the rapid response to mechanical overload that leads to both quantitative and qualitative changes in the contractile proteins, and our current understand ing of the signals that might be elicited by stress and alter gene expression. One chapter emphasizes the fact that, regardless of the nature of the stress, the common denominator is a discrepancy between energy requirements and expenditure. The central role of cellular acidosis in initiating the sequence of responses to stress and the possible roles of peptide regulators of transcription and protein regulators of translation are considered in detail

Evas Rippe : die Entdeckung der weiblichen Medizin by Marianne J Legato( Book )

13 editions published between 2002 and 2014 in 6 languages and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For decades, medicine saw men and women as essentially the same physically except in the area of reproduction. However, a new and groundbreaking science of gender-specific medicine has discovered astonishing distinctions between male and female bodies. From the thickness of our skin to the signs of a heart attack to ways we metabolize drugs, the sexes have significant physiological differences. But, what do these differences mean to you and your doctor?In this groundbreaking book, internationally respected academic physician and lecturer, Dr. Marianne Legato pulls together more than a decade of research into sex-specific health. The result is a powerful tool for anyone interested in the critical nuances in the ways men and women might present symptoms or be treated for disease. It's a book that will not only change the way you think about women's health, it just might save your life
