Book Description :

Movement disorder specialists, general neurologists, hepatologists, general gastroenterologists, and psychiatrists are the specialists who will most likely see some Wilson's disease patients during their careers. See them - yes. Recognize and diagnose them - maybe. If you are in one of these specialties, and a patient with tremor, hepatitis, cirrhosis, apparent Parkinsonism, or mood disorder, is referred to you, will you appropriately recognize the possibility that the underlying diagnosis may be Wilson's disease? Wilson's disease is both treatable and reversible, and commonly misdiagnosed. This book aims to change this with comprehensive coverage of every aspect of Wilson's disease, from well-catalogued, easy-to-use clinical diagnostic tools to treatment methods to molecular biology. Dr. Brewer is the world's leading expert on Wilson's disease, seeing and caring for over 300 patients with the disease during the last 20 years. He is a professor of human genetics at the University of Michigan.

Book Description :

Wilson’s Disease for the Patient and Family: A Patients Guide to Wilson’s disease and Frequently asked Questions about Copper, is an essential reference book for patients with Wilson’s disease and their families. In easy-to-understand language, Dr. Brewer, a world authority on Wilson’s disease and copper, explains everything about Wilson’s disease, from its genetic cause and mechanism of transmission, to effective treatment plans. A comprehensive glossary provides readers with definitions and explanations for many of the scientific words and phrases used in the text. Major reasons why this book is important to patients relate to the rarity of the disease, variation in its manner of presentation, and the likelihood that doctors consulted about the medical problems will know very little about Wilson’s disease. Most doctors, even specialists in liver disease or neurology, will see at most one or two cases during their entire medical careers. If patients hope for rapid and early diagnosis, and that is important to preserve as much function as possible, they may need to help the doctor think of the disease in the first place, and help in sorting out what constitutes proper diagnosis. And then, if there is a diagnosis, comes treatment. The days are gone when one drug, penicillamine (the only anticopper drug most doctors have heard of), is prescribed as soon as the diagnosis is made. Now we have different therapies for different stages. In fact, we no longer recommend penicillamine for Wilson’s disease at all. This book will guide the patient and family through all of these various aspects of Wilson’s disease. Dr. Brewer begins by describing Wilson’s disease, what causes it, how it is inherited, and what symptoms people with Wilson’s disease exhibit. It is an inherited disorder of copper accumulation and toxicity, affecting one in 40,000 people worldwide. After basic coverage of Wilson’s disease, Dr. Brewer devotes an entire chapter to answering some of the most commonly asked questions about copper. Many of these questions are unrelated to Wilson’s disease, but are questions frequently asked by other types of patients as they are informed that there is “something wrong with their copper.” After that, Dr. Brewer explores the symptoms which should trigger the suspicion of Wilson’s disease, and what screening tests can be done to explore this possibility. He then covers testing which will give a definitive diagnosis, what the results of different tests mean, and some of the possible problems with various tests which might be performed. Once a reliable diagnosis of Wilson’s disease is made, anticopper therapy is essential to the survival of Wilson’s disease patients. Dr. Brewer explains what drugs are available for treatment of Wilson’s disease, and offers a comparison of their benefits and side effects. He elaborates on variations in treatment, first discussing the initial stage of treatment, and then long-term maintenance therapy. Included in the discussion are tips for treatment of children and pregnant women. The risks and long-term outlook for a person diagnosed with Wilson’s disease are discussed in some detail. After these information-packed chapters, Dr. Brewer devotes a chapter to answering some frequently asked questions about Wilson’s disease, and presents resources available to Wilson’s disease patients and their families. The book concludes as Dr. Brewer examines the current shortcomings in Wilson’s disease therapy, and points to areas which might be improved upon in the future.

Book Description :

Neuroacanthocytosis Syndromes is the first comprehensive review of a field that has not yet received the attention it deserves. Affecting the brain as well as the circulating red cells, these multi-system disorders in the past had often been mistaken for Huntington's disease. Recent breakthroughs have now identified the molecular basis of several of these. This volume grew out of the first international scientific meeting ever devoted to neuroacanthocytosis and provides in-depth information about the state of the art. Its thirty chapters were written by the leading authorities in the field to cover the clinical as well as the basic science perspective, including not only molecular genetics but also experimental pharmacology and cell membrane biology, among others. The book vehemently poses the question of how the membrane deformation of circulating red blood cells relates to degeneration of nerve cells in the brain, the basal ganglia, in particular. It provides a wealth of data that will help to solve an intriguing puzzle and ease the suffering of those affected by one of the neuroacanthocytosis syndromes.

Book Description :

The safety of the nation's drinking water must be maintained to ensure the health of the public. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is responsible for regulating the levels of substances in the drinking water supply. Copper can leach into drinking water from the pipes in the distribution system, and the allowable levels are regulated by the EPA. The regulation of copper, however, is complicated by the fact that it is both necessary to the normal functioning of the body and toxic to the body at too high a level. The National Research Council was requested to form a committee to review the scientific validity of the EPA's maximum contaminant level goal for copper in drinking water. Copper in Drinking Water outlines the findings of the committee's review. The book provides a review of the toxicity of copper as well as a discussion of the essential nature of this metal. The risks posed by both short-term and long-term exposure to copper are characterized, and the implications for public health are discussed. This book is a valuable reference for individuals involved in the regulation of water supplies and individuals interested in issues surrounding this metal.

Book Description :

In 1993, the genetic mutation responsible for Huntington’s disease (HD) was identified. Considered a milestone in human genomics, this discovery has led to nearly two decades of remarkable progress that has greatly increased our knowledge of HD, and documented an unexpectedly large and diverse range of biochemical and genetic perturbations that seem to result directly from the expression of the mutant huntingtin gene. Neurobiology of Huntington’s Disease: Applications to Drug Discovery presents a thorough review of the issues surrounding drug discovery and development for the treatment of this paradigmatic neurodegenerative disease. Drawing on the expertise of key researchers in the field, the book discusses the basic neurobiology of Huntington’s disease and how its monogenic nature confers enormous practical advantages for translational research, including the creation of robust experimental tools, models, and assays to facilitate discovery and validation of molecular targets and drug candidates for HD. Written to support future basic research as well as drug development efforts, this volume: Covers the latest research approaches in genetics, genomics, and proteomics, including high-throughput and high-content screening Highlights advances in the discovery and development of new drug therapies for neurodegenerative disorders Examines the practical realities of preclinical testing, clinical testing strategies, and, ultimately, clinical usage While the development of effective drug treatments for Huntington's disease continues to be tremendously challenging, a highly interactive and cooperative community of researchers and clinical investigators now brings us to the threshold of potential breakthroughs in the quest for therapeutic agents. The impressive array of drug discovery resources outlined in the text holds much promise for treating this devastating disease, providing hope to long-suffering Huntington’s disease patients and their families.

Book Description :

The liver is one of the organs that receives blood mostly from the systemic circulation. The liver is an important organ in which most metabolic events develop. The detoxification of toxins is also amongst the liver functions. In some cases, liver pathologies can be easily treated, and in some cases, it can lead to the end of life. Liver tumors, bacterial and viral infections, cirrhosis, and Wilson’s disease are among the most common liver diseases. Liver cancers can be primary or secondary due to metastases from other organs. Patients with secondary liver tumors can even be diagnosed without a primary tumor diagnosis. Early diagnosis of liver diseases can increase treatment success. Physicians may encounter liver diseases throughout their professional life. Therefore, our book has been prepared for all physicians. The distinguished authors in our book wrote their chapters by combining their scientific knowledge with their experiences.
