Ion Channels and Disease (Quantitative Finance)Ion channels are membrane proteins that act as gated pathways for the movement of ions across cell membranes. They play essential roles in the physiology of all cells. In recent years, an ever-increasing number of human and animal diseases have been found to result from defects in ion channel function. Most of these diseases arise from mutations in the genes encoding ion channel proteins, and they are now referred to as the channelopathies. Ion Channels and Disease provides an informative and up…

ChannelopathiesThis book describes human hereditary ion channel diseases of voltage- and ligand-gated ion channels covering the diverse fields of medicine myology, neurology, cardiology, and nephrology requiring a wide and interdisciplinary readership. Interesting parallels in pathogenetic mechanisms of disease are especially emphasized to interest even highly specialized readers in entities outside of their fields. Each author has written an objective overview of his or her particular subject in a way that sh…

living with Periodic Paralysis: The Mystery Unraveledliving with Periodic Paralysis is a must read for anyone suffering from the devastating effects of the mysterious disease called Periodic Paralysis. After nearly dying and after many years of misdiagnosis and mistreatment by medical professionals, Susan and Calvin uncover the cause of her illness. Based on a lifetime of experience and after nearly 3 years of experimentation, detailed research and tremendous study, they share their discoveries. living with Periodic Paralysis unravels the inher…

Diseases of the Nervous SystemThe study of the brain continues to expand at a rapid pace providing fascinating insights into the basic mechanisms underlying nervous system illnesses. New tools, ranging from genome sequencing to non-invasive imaging, and research fueled by public and private investment in biomedical research has been transformative in our understanding of nervous system diseases and has led to an explosion of published primary research articles. Diseases of the Nervous System summarizes the current state of …

Genetic Neuromuscular Disorders: A Case-Based ApproachThis book describes the genetic diagnostic entities of neuromuscular disorders. Each neuromuscular syndrome is presented clinically as a case study, accompanied by text reviewing different molecular defects, DNA research and differential diagnosis.  This collection of neuromuscular disorders features the different clinical phenotypes related to each genotype and are representative of the whole spectrum of a genetic muscle disorder, helping the clinician and neuromuscular physician to make a dia…
