Pharmacogenomics : the search for individualized therapies by J Licinio( Book )

18 editions published between 2002 and 2009 in English and held by 244 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This work represents the first comprehensive publication in the innovative field of pharmacogenomics, a field which is set to revolutionize pharmaceutical research. In addition to renowned editors, the list of contributors is a "who-is-who" in the field. Broad coverage of all aspects of pharmacogenomics with a full presentation of applications to disease conditions is featured. Anyone involved in pharmaceutical research and drug development needs this book to keep up with this new and revolutionary approach
Biology of depression : from novel insights to therapeutic strategies( Book )

13 editions published in 2005 in English and Undetermined and held by 180 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first major reference to cover the clinical aspects of this common and complex disorder of unknown cause. Readers will also learn about current understanding of the psychosocial, environmental, biological, and genetic aspects of depression. The authors are internationally recognized experts from leading academic and industrial environments, and they present the features, advantages, and limitations of animal models while reviewing candidate biological systems and genetic approaches. In addition, the book covers the important topic of the medical consequences of depression, as clinicians and investigators increasingly appreciate how it negatively impacts on cardiovascular function and bone mineral density. Finally, a separate section is devoted to the biochemical and molecular basis for existing treatments, along with strategies for the use of genomic tools to discover new targets for antidepressants and to predict therapeutic outcomes
Handbook of the autonomic nervous system in health and disease by Liana Bolis( Book )

10 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 73 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Examines the role of the ANS in the maintenance and control of bodily homeostasis, as well as in the pathogenesis, pathophysiology, and treatment of disorders such as cardiovascular disease, hypertension, asthma, arrhythmia, diabetes, ischemia, myocardial infarction, urinary retention, and depression
Dopaminergic system : evolution from biological to clinical aspects( Book )

4 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 49 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Biology of depression : fundamentals of evaluation and treatment by J Licinio( Book )

6 editions published between 2008 and 2011 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Reported by the WHO and the World Bank to be the fourth cause of disability worldwide, depression can best be explained from a genetic perspective as a complex disorder of gene-environment interactions. This is the first major reference to cover the clinical aspects of this common and complex disorder of unknown cause. Readers will also learn about our current understanding of the psychosocial, environmental, biological, and genetic aspects of depression. The authors are internationally recognized experts from leading academic and industrial environments, and they present the features, advantages, and limitations of animal models while reviewing candidate biological systems and genetic approaches. In addition, the book covers the important topic of the medical consequences of depression, as clinicians and investigators increasingly appreciate how it negatively impacts on cardiovascular function and bone mineral density.

The neuroimmune-endocrine axis: pathophysiological implications for the central nervous system cytokines and hypothalamus-pituitary-adrenal hormone dynamics by J Licinio( )

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cytokines are molecules that were initially discovered in the immune system as mediators of communication between various types of immune cells. However, it soon became evident that cytokines exert profound effects on key functions of the central nervous system, such as food intake, fever, neuroendocrine regulation, long-term potentiation, and behavior. In the 80's and 90's our group and others discovered that the genes encoding various cytokines and their receptors are expressed in vascular, glial, and neuronal structures of the adult brain. Most cytokines act through cell surface receptors that have one transmembrane domain and which transduce a signal through the JAK/STAT pathway. Of particular physiological and pathophysiological relevance is the fact that cytokines are potent regulators of hypothalamic neuropeptidergic systems that maintain neuroendocrine homeostasis and which regulate the body's response to stress. The mechanisms by which cytokine signaling affects the function of stress-related neuroendocrine systems are reviewed in this article. (Au)

Diferencas na secrecao diaria de leptina em homens e mulheres: possiveis implicacoes na neuroendocrinologia dos transtornos alimentares by Andre B Negrao( )

1 edition published in 1998 in Portuguese and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Introducao: alteracoes de cortisol e hormonios sexuais sao frequentes em transtornos alimentares. Leptina atua no sistema adrenal/gonadal e sinaliza saciedade para o cerebro. Estudos recentes demonstraram alteracoes de leptina em mulheres com anorexia nervosa e bulimia nervosa. Objetivos: 1) verificar se ha uma diferenca no padrao de secrecao diaria de leptina entre sexos; 2) comparar hormonios sexuais e leptina em mulheres. Metodo: a leptina plasmatica foi medida em oito homens e seis mulheres normais. Series temporais compostas de valores plasmaticos de leptina, LH (hormonio luteinizante) e estradiol foram avaliados por testes de deteccao de pulsos, analise espectral e cross-correlation. Resultados: a leptina diaria e a amplitude dos pulsos de leptina sao duas vezes maiores nas mulheres que nos homens ... (AU)

Leptina: o dialogo entre adipocitos e neuronios by Andre B Negrao( )

1 edition published in 2000 in Portuguese and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

A descoberta da leptina trouxe consigo um interesse renovado sobre o estudo do controle homeostatico da energia. Sabe-se agora que o tecido adiposo branco e o maior sitio de producao da leptina. Uma vez na circulacao sanguinea ela se liga a receptores especificos no cerebro, levando ao sistema nervoso central um sinal de saciedade que reflete a quantidade existente de energia em forma de gordura no organismo. Agindo por intermedio de receptores que fazem uso da via JAK/SAT de transducao do sinal intracelular, a leptina modifica a expressao e a atividade de inumeros peptideos hipotalamicos que regulam o apetite e o gasto de energia. Alem disso, a leptina sinaliza o estado nutricional do organismo a outros sistemas fisiologicos, modulando a funcao de varias glandulas alvo. Mais recentemente, a leptina recombinante foi administrada com sucesso numa paciente obesa com deficiencia do hormonio devido a uma mutacao do gene ob. Por outro lado, os efeitos da leptina recombinante no unico estudo em pacientes com obesidade e concentracoes elevadas de leptina foram menos impressionantes. Nesta revisao, discutiremos a complexidade das acoes da leptina com enfase no seu papel integrativo de sinalizadora do estado nutricional para o organismo. (AU)
