Erythrocytes: Physiology and PathophysiologyThe book covers the functional significance and properties of erythrocytes, their generation, senescence, and suicidal death. It further summarizes knowledge about hormones influencing erythrocyte formation including erythropoietin as well as disorders affecting and involving erythrocytes such as anemia, malaria, and sepsis. This seminal work forms a unique reference on the most abundant cell type in mammals and will be an invaluable resource for students in the life sciences. …

Human PhysiologyThis book first appeared in English in 1983, as a translation of the 20th Edition of the long-established German textbook Physi%gie des Menschen. In this new English edition the text has been fundamentally “rejuvenated”, to bring it up to date with the rapid advances in many areas of physiology and to incorporate many helpful suggestions from both readers and colleagues. In its scope and didac­ tic goals, the book remains as we set forth in the Preface to the First Edition, which follows. First…

PathophysiologyNo doubt, there are many ways to practice “good” medicine, whatever this may be. Forty years ago the history, observation, and clinical examina­ tion of a patient led to diagnosis and therapy. Since then, we have learned a great deal about the biochemical and physiologic processes in the human body and about the pathogenetic mechanisms by which they are disturbed and lead to disease. Today, the basis of clinical judgment and patient management is the understanding of pathogenetic mechanisms of …

International Symposium on Metabolism, Physiology, and Clinical Use of Pentoses and Pentitols: Hakone, Japan, August 27th-29th, 1967In recent times it has come to be realized that pentoses are important as building blocks in the organism and as intermediate products in meta­ bolism. The finding that ribose and desoxyribose are nucleic acid con­ stituents and the discovery of the pentose-phosphate cycle have put these substances in a central position in biochemical research. The con­ current realization that the pentitol, xylitol, is involved in an important metabolic cycle and that the body can handle it in quantities com…

Cell Volume and SignalingIn front of you is the finished product of your work, the text of your contributions to the 2003 Dayton International Symposium on Cell Volume and Signal Transduction. As we all recall, this symposium brought together the Doyens of Cellular and Molecular Physiology as well as aspiring young investigators and students in this field. It became a memorable event in an illustrious series of International Symposia on Cell Volume and Signaling. This series, started by Professors Vladimir Strbák, Flor…

Oxygen Transport to Tissue XXIV (Advances in Experimental Medicine and Biology)This volume contains refereed manuscripts prepared from presentations made at the 2ih annual meeting of the International Society on Oxygen Transport to Tissue (ISOTT). The meeting was held in Hanover, NH, USA, at Dartmouth Medical School, the 3rd oldest medical school in the USA. ISOTT attempts to produce high quality pUblications on cutting edge topics relating to oxygen in living systerns. The goal is to allow contributors to contribute original data, as with a main-stream journal article, bu…

The Red Cell Membrane: A Model for Solute Transport (Contemporary Biomedicine)“After being frequently urged to write upon this subject, and as often declining to do it, from apprehension of my own inability, I am at length compelled to take up the pen, however unqualified I may still feel myself for the task. ” William Withering, M. D. ‘ I have yet to find a description or a quote that better summanzes my initial ambivalence towards embarking on such an endeavor as partici­ pating in putting together this monograph. The impetus for The Red-Cell has been a simple, genuine…
