By Dr. R. M. Cornell, Prof. em. Dr. Dr. h.c. U. Schwertmann(auth.)

This publication brings jointly in a single, compact quantity all points of the on hand information regarding the iron oxides. It provides a coherent, brand new account of the homes, reactions and mechanisms of formation of those compounds. additionally, there are chapters facing iron oxides in rocks and soils, as biominerals and as corrosion items including equipment of synthesis and the varied program of those compounds. Their function within the surroundings can be mentioned. The authors are specialists within the box of iron oxides and feature labored on all of the subject matters coated. a lot contemporary facts from the authors' personal laboratories is incorporated and possibilities for extra learn are indicated.

particular gains are the electron micrographs and color plates including the numerous diverse spectra used to demonstrate houses and features of behaviour. a number of tables and graphs permit tendencies and relationships to be visible at a look. The publication concludes with an intensive bibliography.

This ebook should still turn out precious to and to all researchers who, no matter what their heritage and point of expertise, have an interest during this quickly increasing box. it really is a necessary quantity for any clinical library and is now in its moment, thoroughly revised and prolonged variation!

Special Issues in Hypertension by Stevo Julius, Carlos A. Feldstein (auth.), Adel E. Berbari,

By Stevo Julius, Carlos A. Feldstein (auth.), Adel E. Berbari, Giuseppe Mancia (eds.)

This e-book isn't really meant as an entire particular document on high blood pressure and comparable problems, yet as a substitute makes a speciality of specific concerns in high blood pressure. It appears at rising lately defined varieties of high blood pressure which are often encountered in medical perform (prehypertension, white-coat and masked high blood pressure, high blood pressure within the aged) and discusses novel points of objective organ illness (for instance, cognitive impairment, dementia, and sexual dysfunction), and altering suggestions within the administration of high blood pressure and antihypertensive pharmacotherapy. It additionally appears to be like at particular issues which are hardly mentioned in books, together with high blood pressure regulate in postmenopausal ladies on hormonal alternative remedy, Ramadan fasting, painful inflammatory problems, and aldosterone get away. ultimately, it examines more moderen cardiovascular chance components (for instance, uric acid, circadian blood strain alterations, blood strain variability).

5-HT4 Receptors in the Brain and Periphery by Robin D. Clark (auth.), Richard M. Eglen Ph.D. (eds.)

By Robin D. Clark (auth.), Richard M. Eglen Ph.D. (eds.)

This ebook presents a accomplished, up to date evaluation of the distribution, pharmacology and body structure of crucial 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT)4 receptors. The 5-HT receptor subtypes express a different pharmacology, distribution and serve as, of which the 5-HT4 receptor has been some of the most intensively studied lately, either from a easy study point of view and as a objective for novel therapeutics.

Biomedical Advances in HIV Prevention: Social and Behavioral Perspectives

Lisa A. Eaton and Seth C. Kalichman, editors

Three a long time into the epidemic, greatly is understood approximately HIV and its transmission, extra everyone is residing with the sickness, and the virus is not any longer obvious as a dying sentence. yet new humans stay contaminated with HIV every year, making prevention suggestions which are medically powerful and behaviorally attractive as pressing a concern as ever.

Biomedical Advances in HIV Prevention: Social and Behavioral Perspectives assembles the most recent advancements, obstacles to implementation, and probabilities for--and challengesto--future development. strategies equivalent to pre-exposure prophylaxis (antiretroviral regimens for the high-risk uninfected) and therapy as prevention (early use of paintings to minimize infectiousness of latest sufferers) are tested, as are present findings on ongoing prevention and remedy concerns.

Contributors remove darkness from the advanced realities entailing adherence, declaring technological, behavioral, and cultural roadblocks in addition to possibilities to noticeably decrease an infection charges. precise up to the moment insurance includes:

  • Prevention providers for individuals residing with HIV
  • Adherence to HIV therapy as prevention and pre-exposure prophylaxis
  • Advocating for rectal microbicides and secure lubricants
  • Mental healthiness and substance use within the scale-up of HIV prevention
  • Risk repayment in line with HIV prevention
  • Implementing biomedical HIV prevention advances: experiences from South Africa, Uganda, Australia, Thailand, usa, Ecuador, and Peru

Researchers, practitioners, and coverage makers operating within the fields of HIV/AIDS and public healthiness will glance towards BiomedicalAdvancesinHIVPrevention: Social and Behavioral Perspectives as either a way for constructing and assessing present courses and a blueprint for the subsequent new release of prevention efforts.

Cotton: Biotechnological Advances by B. M. Khadi, V. Santhy, M. S. Yadav (auth.), Usha B. Zehr

By B. M. Khadi, V. Santhy, M. S. Yadav (auth.), Usha B. Zehr Dr. (eds.)

The meals, feed, ?ber, and gas wishes of the altering international pose the problem of doubling or tripling of worldwide foodstuff, feed, and ?ber creation through the 12 months 2050 to fulfill the desires of a eleven billion international inhabitants. furthermore, the dramatic adjustments in nutrition costs within the contemporary years additional warrant that creation and productiveness have to be superior to make sure enough provides. Biotechnology could make a signi?cant contribution to this attempt as verified by way of cotton and different plants; the hot advances in biotechnology have made it attainable to advance crops that include genes that weren't attainable to be built by way of sexual skill. Cotton has been a pace-setter within the use of biotechnology. With the advent of Bt cotton, through stacked cotton items (insect and herbicide tolerance) and broad use of molecular breeding instruments, cotton cultivation has been a lot enhanced. The contributions during this e-book illustrate the scienti?c advances which are occurring in cotton and the impression they proceed to convey for all cotton growers. Twelve percentage of the worldwide cotton sector is now less than biotech items at 15. five million ha. the first bene?ts from utilizing genetically engineered cotton comprise decreased insecticide use, reduce construction expenses, more suitable yields, reduce farming dangers, and elevated possibilities to develop cotton in components of critical pest infestation.
