The Physiological Basis of Metabolic Bone DiseaseResearch into metabolic bone disease has made remarkable progress over the last 20 years, with the identification of numerous new molecules and pathways regulating bone cells as well as their plasma milieu. Their activities are largely regulated by the physiological status of the body incorporating the biochemical, physical and mechanical functions of bone, kidney and intestinal tissues. The Physiological Basis of Metabolic Bone Disease integrates the knowledge derived from molecular techniques …

Calcium-Sensing Receptor (Endocrine Updates)Calcium-Sensing Receptor provides an overview of various aspects of the calcium receptor’s biochemistry, physiology and pathophysiology that is suitable both for those who have been working in the field of Ca2+0-sensing as well as those who are new to this discipline. Calcium-Sensing Receptor is the nineteenth volume published in the Endocrine Updates book series under the Series Editorship of Shlomo Melmed, MD….

Cellular Endocrinology in Health and DiseaseCellular Endocrinology in Health and Disease describes the underlying basis of endocrine function, providing an important tool to understand the fundamentals of endocrine diseases. Delivering a comprehensive review of the basic science of endocrinology, from cell biology to human disease, this work explores and dissects the function of a number of cellular systems. Among these are those whose function was not obvious until recently, including the endocrine functions of bone and the adipose tissu…

Phosphate and Minerals in Health and Disease (NATO Advanced Study Institutes Series: Series B, Physics)We are pleased to present to our readers the Proceedings of the Fourth International Workshop on Phosphate and Other Minerals which was held in Strasbourg during June 22-24, 1979. It was hosted by Professor Henri Jahn, Professor of Medicine and Chief, Department of Nephrology at the University of Strasbourg. These Workshops have become a tradition in the scientific scene of mineral metabolism. The meetings have been providing a unique framework for close interaction between scientists from vario…

Osteoporosis e-chart: Quick reference guideOsteoporosis e-chart – Quick reference guideOsteoporosis, is defined as a disease characterized by severe bone loss. The healthy bone acts as a store of calcium and phosphorus, and has an internal elastic structure that makes it resistant to fractures. As a normal part of aging, bones lose calcium and elasticity, thus becoming more susceptible to damage. After 45 years of age, bone mass is severely reduced in both men and women; however, because of the accelerated bone loss that begins at menopa…

Calcium and Phosphorus in Health and Disease (Modern Nutrition)Calcium and Phosphorus in Health and Disease is a valuable source of information on the role of nutrition in maintaining bone health throughout the life cycle. It emphasizes nutritional interactions with mineral metabolism and maintenance of bone health.This book presents the basic concepts of regulation of calcium and phosphorus metabolism by calcemic hormones and the structure and function of calcified tissues. It provides an in-depth review of bone growth and maintenance and calcium metabolis…
