Comparison of type I and type II diabetes : similarities and dissimilarities in etiology, pathogenesis, and complications by Mladen Vranic( Book )
6 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 247 libraries worldwide
Five years ago, a new system of classification of the various types of diabetes was proposed. This publication provides an inte grated picture of the latest information on the similarities and dissimilarites of two types of diabetes. It contains contributions from morphologists, physiologists, biochemists, immunologists, pathologists, geneticists, clinicians and epidemiologists. In the first section, the basis for the present classification and its limitations are discussed. In addition, there is a discussion of gestational diabetes and heterogeneity of some sub-classes of diabetes. The next section deals with genetics and immunology. The third section discusses abnormalities of insulin secretion and act ion on both the receptor and post ... receptor levels. The role of gastrointestinal peptides in Type I and Type II diabetes is also considered. In the last section, both types of diabetes are compared with respect to diabetic complications. The closing sec tion summarizes the present status and offers a stimulating view of future development. We hope that this book will be a useful source of information for both researchers and practicing clinicians. M. Vranic G. steiner C.H.

Grammars of Creation by George Steiner( file )
2 editions published between 2010 and 2013 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
"A fresh, revelatory, golden eagle's eye-view of western literature."--Financial TimesEarly in Grammars of Creation, George Steiner references Plato's maxim that in "all things natural and human, the origin is the most excellent." Creation, he argues, is linguistically fundamental in theology, philosophy, art, music, literature-central, in fact, to our very humanity. Since the Holocaust, however, art has shown a tendency to linger on endings-on sundown instead of sunrise. Asserting that every use of the future tense of the verb "to be" is a negation of mortality, Steiner draws on everything fr
