Abstract:

Recent advances in molecular endocrinology have significantly increased our understanding of endocrine diseases, as well as that of the medical management of these complicated disorders. In Developmental Endocrinology: From Research to Clinical Practice, leading researchers comprehensively translate all the latest scientific information regarding endocrine physiology and development into an understanding of the clinical pathogenesis, diagnosis, and treatment of these diseases. Organized by endocrine system, each section of the book concisely describes the chronological development of the human organism, from the fetal/prenatal period through childhood, adolescence, and, in some cases, into adulthood. The prenatal sections review recent discoveries concerning transcription factors, homeobox genes, and human molecular mutations- the basic processes governing prenatal development of the individual endocrine organs--and detail the pathophysiology, clinical characteristics, and treatment of pediatric endocrine disorders. Authoritative, comprehensive, and readily accessible, Developmental Endocrinology: From Research to Clinical Practice illuminates for today's medical investigators, basic scientists, and clinicians our rapidly emerging understanding of this complex field, as well as constituting an invaluable guide to the practical clinical management of endocrine diseases.

Publisher Synopsis

"The coverage of calcium and bone is outstanding, being detailed, highly informative, wide-ranging - and dense! I was also highly impressed by the chapter on sexual differentiation, which is a model Read more...
