Beschreibung

Maintaining the original goal of the first edition to integrate the basic science of endocrinology with its physiological and clinical principles, this new edition succinctly summarizes in 450 pages the latest findings on hormone secretion and hormone action, as well as all the most recent insights into the physiology and pathophysiology of hormonal disorders. Coverage extends across the entire spectrum of endocrinology-from mammalian cells, plants, and insects to animal models and human diseases-with much increased coverage of diabetes and metabolism. Highlights include cutting-edge discussions of appetite disorders, obesity, reproductive failure, control of thyroid function, hormone action in man and the lower species, and the mechanisms subserving hormone secretion.

Pressestimmen

"...a valuable new endocrinology text...creates a new niche between basic endocrinology monographs and encyclopedic clinical endocrinology and metabolism texts...highly recommend[ed]...Conn & Melmed have successfully created a new genre of endocrinology text." -Endocrine News
From Reviews of the First Edition...
"....plenty of the kind of...science that keeps medical students on the edge of their seats during lectures." -Lancet
"...recommend[ed]...to clinicians who wish to understand progress in endocrine science and to students approaching endocrinology as a scientific discipline."
-Molecular Medicine
"...an...excellent base for a clinician interested in endocrinology."
-New England Journal of Medicine
"...a superb book for graduate students in physiology or molecular biology who are taking a course or are pursuing research in endocrinology and wish to broaden their knowledge of this field...highly recommend[ed]...as a current general reference in endocrinology..." -Quarterly Review of Biology
"...succeeds best in its stated aim of integrating scientific and clinical principles...The reader is comfortably led from the bench to, but not beyond, the bedside of clinical practice...recommend[ed]...to clinicians..."
-Trends in Molecular Medicine
"...provides recent information on the cellular and molecular mechanisms of hormone action that explains endocrine disease. For the beginning endocrine student or physician/scientist wanting to gain a quick insight into...specific aspects of endocrine function, this is an ideal text." -Trends in Endocrinology and Metabolism
