Molecular biology of the islets of Langerhans by Hiroshi Okamoto( Book )

13 editions published between 1989 and 2009 in English and held by 182 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A comprehensive account of the role of the islets of Langerhans is presented in this text. As the primary source of hormone production in the pancreas, the islets of Langerhans have been the focus of research into the nature of diabetes for decades. In recent years, the molecular biology of this multiendocrine organ has been intensively investigated, with a corresponding increase in our understanding of the normal and pathological functioning of islet cells. This is the first comprehensive treatment of molecular studies on the synthesis of insulin, glucagon, somatostatin and pancreatic polypeptide. In addition, this volume presents contemporary hypotheses and explanations, at the molecular level, of the defects in islet cells that may lead to diabetes
Heart failure : frontiers in cardiology by Akira Kitabatake( )

2 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Remarkable progress has been made in understanding and treating heart failure. Among other developments, angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors and b blockers have been found to have beneficial therapeutic effects, reinforcing the view that heart failure may be both a hemodynamic and a neurohumoral disorder. The Japanese Heart Failure Society was established to curb the threat of heart failure through research, education, and clinical practice. At the Societys 2nd Annual Scientific Meeting in Sapporo, molecular biologists, physiologists, clinicians, surgeons, and researchers in related fields met to strengthen professional bonds for the ultimate goal of preventing death from heart failure. This book contains presentations from the Sapporo conference that provide new insights into heart failure in the areas of pathophysiology, cardiac sudden death, medical and surgical treatment, and promising new gene therapy
