Metabolic Regulation looks in detail at how molecules, cells and tissues operate collectively in human health and disease, using an approach that has become known as ‘integrative physiology’. Since the publication of the first edition of this extremely well received book, the understanding of how metabolism is regulated has developed substantially in several ways, for example with the discovery of the hormone leptin, and also in the continuing... more...

A comprehensive examination of these fascinating proteins. Covers the basic molecular mechanisms of superantigen action, their structure and function, and their role in human diseases. Explains the clinical consequences of superantigen intoxication and the latest therapeutic interventions to combat superantigen toxicity. Emphasizes how newly discovered structural variations among superantigens affect their interactions with... more...

Each two-sided card features a clinical case and challenges you to diagnose the condition Provides a clear explanation of the underlying physiology Allows you to brush up on system-specific disorders A super-effective way to prepare for pathophysiology courses and board exams Student and peer reviewed... more...

There has been a marked change in examination strategy over the last five years; EMQs (extended matching questions) are popular with tutors and students alike as they present a more realistic view of a student's ability to apply his or her knowledge in a clinical situation. The new edition of MCQs in Physiology has been subject to a complete overhaul to become MCQs and EMQs in Physiology. This reflects the current methods of examination techniques... more...

Human Acid-Base Physiology is written for pre-clinical medical students and other physiology students of equivalent standard. It is a logical, self-contained text which explains the fundamentals of common clinical disorders of acid-base regulation. The book covers physical chemistry, the essentials of acid-base physiology, the assessment of acid-base status, and finally the field of acid-base physiology is put into perspective in the wider context of... more...

Adipose tissue, once considered inert connective tissue, is an essential storage site for key substrates used as sources of energy. In recent years, cellular and molecular biologists have advanced the concept that adipocytes are not solely a cellular storage location for excess fuel. Rather, adipose tissue is an active secretory organ that synthesizes and releases a number of bioactive proteins that influence energy and substrate metabolism throughout... more...
