Human genetics : a problem-based approach by Bruce R Korf( Book )

24 editions published between 1996 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 523 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Understanding molecular and clinical genetics is an essential aspect of modern medical education. Rapid advances in gene research and increasing knowledge of the genetic bases for common disease dictate that genetics will play an even larger role in the future of medical practice. Human Genetics: A Problem-Based Approach incorporates these vital aspects of genetic medicine within a framework of student-driven learning to emerge as the genetics textbook of the future. Human Genetics is the only book to combine text with problem-based tutorial exercises, case studies, and review questions. Each chapter focuses on a core concept of human genetics, illustrated by a corresponding clinical case that guides the reader through key principles addressed in the text. Throughout each chapter, topics from classic Mendelian genetics, molecular genetics, and quantitative genetics are introduced to provide a context in which the role of genes in disease can be readily understood
Human genetics and genomics by Bruce R Korf( Book )

35 editions published between 2006 and 2014 in English and held by 477 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book merges basic genetic principles with clinical applications of genetics in medical practice. By presenting the core concepts of human genetics while maintaining an emphasis on a problem-based learning and clinical approach. This edition acts both as a textbook for genetics courses, and a bridge into the clinical environment. Features include enhanced emphasis on microbiology content, a chapter devoted to laboratory techniques, and a vast array of new pedagogy
Neurofibromatosis : a handbook for patients, families, and health-care professionals by Bruce R Korf( Book )

10 editions published between 1990 and 2005 in English and held by 225 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What little is known about the rare genetic disease popularly but wrongly associated with The Elephant Man, is presented in terms that people with no medical training can decipher, and clinicians can relate to their knowledge. Focuses on the care of the patient with any of a wide range of symptoms, while waiting for the molecular geneticists to track down the gene and figure out how it works
Emery and Rimoin's essential medical genetics by David L Rimoin( Book )

11 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and Spanish and held by 62 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For decades, Emery and Rimoin's Principles and Practice of Medical Genetics has provided the ultimate source for practicing clinicians to learn how the study of genetics can be integrated into practice. Developed in parallel to the sixth edition, and featuring 174 original contributions from the many authors of the full set, this one volume work expertly condenses and synthesizes the most clinically relevant content, for convenient desk reference. Helping to bridge the gap between high-level molecular genetics and individual application, it follows the multi-volume set in encompassing scientific fundamentals, full spectrum discussion of major inherited disorderd, and actionable therapies

Emery & Rimoin's principles and practice of medical genetics by Alan E. H Emery( Book )

5 editions published between 2002 and 2007 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For decades, Emery and Rimoin's Principles and Practice of Medical Genetics has provided the ultimate source for practicing clinicians to learn how the study of genetics can be integrated into practice. With advances in high-throughput technologies propelling the closer integration of lab and clinical work, this 6e bridges the gap between high-level molecular genetics and individual application. This comprehensive yet practical resource emphasizes theory and research fundamentals related to applications of medical genetics across the full spectrum of inherited disorders. Clinically oriented information is supported by expanded sections on basic principles of genetics, research approaches, and analytics to embrace the evolving population of students, researchers, and practitioners who are integrating their work to provide advanced diagnosis, prevention and treatment of human disease. Over 250 of the world's most trusted authorities in medical genetics will contribute to the new release of the revised electronic edition of the work. Regular updates and the integration of teaching tools such as videos and graphics will distinguish this work from the competition. Links to sites such as Online Mendelian Inheritance in Man (OMIM) and similar sites that provide up-to-date information on human genes and genetic phenotypes will make this product the ultimate source for students, researchers, and practitioners alike."--Publisher's website

Natural History of Plexiform Neurofibromas in NF1( Book )

9 editions published between 1999 and 2007 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The major goals of this study have been to document the usefulness of volumetric MRI as a means of following the growth of plexiform neurofibromas, measuring the rate of growth of plexiform neurofibromas over time, and establishing a consortium of clinical centers to carry out clinical trials of treatment for plexiform neurofibromas in the future. Establishment of this consortium has been considerably more difficult than anticipated, due to the need to have every center approved both by a local IRB and the army IRB. Many minor and a few major differences in wording of informed consents have impeded many centers from completing the IRB approval process. We have tried to streamline this process, now, and expect that 19 centers will be approved by the first quarter of 2001. With this, however, we will have accomplished one of our major goals, to create a consortium of clinical centers, supported by a tissue repository, database, pathology review, MRI review, and statistical support. We have also taken a major step towards demonstration that the volumetric approach can be accomplished in spite of the complexities of imaging of plexiform neurofibromas by showing that three independent observers obtain similar volume measurements. The final goal, that of determining rate of neurofibroma growth, will take longer than expected due to the slow acquisition of IRB approval for all clinical centers, but this is expected to be accomplished as well, albeit after a longer period of study than initially anticipated. The first clinical trial of a farnesyl protein transferase inhibitor is about to begin under the auspices of the National Cancer Institute. We are involved in this study, using the same MRI protocol and tissue repository for that study, It is expected that additional clinical trials will begin over the next sevenal years, and that the approaches and resources of this consortium will facilitate the efforts to test these drugs and determine treatment endpoints in NFI.c
