Book Description :

During the last 10-12 years, the research on homocysteine has become very active. About 1500 of articles are now published each year on homocysteine and the vitamins involved in its metabolism. A disturbed homocysteine metabolism can be an underlying factor for pregnancy complications and fetal malformations, cardiovascular disease, dementia, psychiatric and neurologic disorders and possibly carcinogenesis. A disturbed homocysteine metabolism can in most cases be normalised by treatment with folate and/or vitamines B12 and B6. Many of these findings therefore directly concern most practitioners. However, if there are good reviews covering single aspects of this research, these are published in specialised journals. The author has realised the difficulties for the practitioner in keeping updated. This second edition has been thoroughly updated and also offers more data on the vitamins. Over 1600 references are made available.

Book Description :

This book has been designed, as its title implies, as a practical book for medical practitioners, although it should be of interest to medical students and nutritionists. It attempts to provide essential information about this important group of substances rather than be an all embracing monograph on the subject. For this reason biochemical and physiological considera tions have been kept to a minimum, and aspects of animal disorders and animal husbandry have not been considered. The material is often presented in a rather dogmatic fashion and, with rare exceptions, references are not included since this makes reading more difficult. The exceptions, where references are provided, are the therapeutic claims, and the series of recent studies which have indicated that vitamin deficiencies are still widely present among certain groups of the population of many industrially developed countries. To add to this reference list there is a reading list which has been selected to give key books, reviews with extensive bibliography and important articles over the past 10 years. From this reading list it is possible to trace most of the literature on the vitamins since they were first described over half a century ago.

The Vitamins: Fundamental Aspects in Nutrition and Health, Sixth Edition presents both overviews and in-depth discussions of the sources, chemistry, metabolism and functions of these essential nutrients in physiology and health. Sections cover perspectives (history of discovery, general properties and impacts), individual Vitamins (their respective chemistries, metabolism), and their dietary sources and global needs. In addition, the inclusion and interpretation of recent clinical research findings relevant to all vitamins, particularly vitamins A, D, E, K, C, thiamin, folate and vitamin B12 is included, along with an expanded discussion on single-carbon metabolism), implications to neuropathies, and more. Presents complete information about vitamins in a format useful as both a teaching text and desk reference Includes coverage of vitamin-related topics not typically found in general nutrition texts (e.g., enteric microbial biosynthesis of vitamins, global prevalence of deficiencies, diagnosing ‘silent’ asymptomatic vitamin deficiencies, histories of vitamin discoveries) Contains useful appendices of key reference information (e.g., vitamin requirements of humans and animals, vitamin contents of foods, sources of vitamin information)

Book Description :

The Statistics of Bioassay: With Special Reference to the Vitamins, Volume II focuses on the processes, reactions, principles, and approaches involved in the biological assay of vitamins. The publication first offers information on the general principles of biological assay, dosage-response curve and its error, and designs for segregating nonrandom variation. Discussions focus on replacement of missing values, randomized groups, calculation of the line, analysis of the variation about the line, comparative biological assays, analytical biological assays, and determination of activity. The text then ponders on measurement of relative potency and correction of quantitative variables. The manuscript takes a look at assays where the variation in response is a function of the dose and slope-ratio assays. Topics include microbiological assays and the slope-ratio technique, analysis of balanced slope-ratio assays, analysis of assays with an all-or-none response, and graded response with unequal variance. The publication then tackles multiple or repeated assays, including quality control in repeated assays and combination of independent assays of a single unknown. The publication is a valuable source of information for researchers interested in the biological assay of vitamins.

Book Description :

This single-source reference draws together the current knowledgeof the vitamins' biological properties in the context of humannutrition. Vitamins are co-enzymes, antioxidants or precursors ofhormones and are therefore involved in a great many biochemical andphysiological processes. They play a vital role in the maintenanceof health, and there is evidence that dietary sources of vitaminshave beneficial effects in the prevention of heart-relateddiseases, bone diseases and possibly cancer. Following introductory chapters on historical and nutritionalaspects of vitamins, the next four chapters cover relevant anddetailed aspects of physiology and functional anatomy,biochemistry, immunology and the regulation of protein synthesis bynuclear hormone receptors. These background chapters, supported bya glossary of terms, provide the scientific principles upon whichvitamin functions are based. The following thirteen chapters dealwith each vitamin in turn. Subject areas include chemicalstructure, intestinal absorption, transport, metabolism,biochemical and physiological actions, immunoregulatory properties,deficiency-related diseases and potential toxicity. An extensivebibliography refers the reader to the original researchliterature. Vitamins is aimed at nutritionists, biochemists, physiologists andphysicians whether they be researchers, teachers or students. Foodscientists, food technologists and many others working in thehealth professions will also find much of use and interest in thebook. The inclusion of the theoretical principles in the backgroundchapters makes the book an ideal starting point for those workingoutside the area who need a solid overview of the subject.
