Metabolic syndrome
Metabolic syndrome
Based on the 2009 Advanced Medicine conference at the Royal College of Physicians, this volume uniquely blends clinical updates with scientific insight into cutting edge research. A wide range of topics are covered, ranging from those where pathogenetic mechanisms are only begining to be unravelled, for instance, idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, to areas where large multi-centre trials have made a great difference to practice, such as the management of transient ischaemic attacks.
Diseases of the 21st century such as non-alcoholic fatty liver disease and metabolic syndrome are also covered, as are conditions which were recognised centuries ago, such as pneumonia, hay fever and allergic respiratory disease. Articles offering a new perspective on topics that repeatedly raise clinical conundrums (such as thyroid disease, preoperative assessment and when to biopsy the liver) are also included. In addition, self-assessment questions associated with the articles are featured, allowing readers to test their understanding of a chapter's key messages.
The volume concludes with lectures that tackle the possibility of reversing steroid resistance in inflammatory lung disease, analyse the alarming rise in multi and extensively drug-resistant tuberculosis, and examine genetic diversity and the major histocompatability complex.
This unique publication presents essential facts and information on the latest medical developments to a wide range of readers such as the consultant physician, general practitioner or doctor in training, and also those from developing countries.

Abstract

Based on the 2009 Advanced Medicine conference at the Royal College of Physicians, this volume uniquely blends clinical updates with scientific insight into cutting edge research. A wide range of topics are covered, ranging from those where pathogenetic mechanisms are only begining to be unravelled, for instance, idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, to areas where large multi-centre trials have made a great difference to practice, such as the management of transient ischaemic attacks.
Diseases of the 21st century such as non-alcoholic fatty liver disease and metabolic syndrome are also covered, as are conditions which were recognised centuries ago, such as pneumonia, hay fever and allergic respiratory disease. Articles offering a new perspective on topics that repeatedly raise clinical conundrums (such as thyroid disease, preoperative assessment and when to biopsy the liver) are also included. In addition, self-assessment questions associated with the articles are featured, allowing readers to test their understanding of a chapter's key messages.
The volume concludes with lectures that tackle the possibility of reversing steroid resistance in inflammatory lung disease, analyse the alarming rise in multi and extensively drug-resistant tuberculosis, and examine genetic diversity and the major histocompatability complex.
This unique publication presents essential facts and information on the latest medical developments to a wide range of readers such as the consultant physician, general practitioner or doctor in training, and also those from developing countries.
