Drugs affecting lipid metabolism; proceedings by David Kritchevsky( Book )

56 editions published between 1965 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 694 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Proceedings of the Eight International Symposium on Drugs Affecting Lipid Metabolism (8th D.A.L.M.) is the subject of this volume. Since the first symposium in 1960, each successive meeting has broken new ground in the field of pharmacological control of lipid levels - offering new and stimulating insights and exposing the audience to the state of the art. The field has progressed sufficiently to permit discussion of the cellular biology of atherosclerosis. The opening session was devoted to pathology, macrophages, lipoproteins and their receptors and cholesterol ester metabolism. Because of the recent emergence of new apolipoprotein technology, a workshop devoted solely to apolipoprotein methodology was introduced followed by a plenary session devoted to their metabolism and structure. Another rapidly developing area of atherosclerosis research is non-invasive assessment of this condition. Accordingly, a session was devoted to new techniques for this research modality. The final plenary sessions were devoted to the roles of drugs and diet in atherosclerosis - cause, treatment and mechanisms of action. The meeting was summarized by Dr. O.J. Pollak, one of the "founding fathers" of this field. There were nine sessions of proffered. papers whose abstracts appear in this volume. In addition, special workshops (to be reported elsewhere) were devoted to several drugs including Oryzanol, Probucol and Etofibrate

The bile acids; chemistry, physiology, and metabolism by Padmanabhan P Nair( Book )

63 editions published between 1971 and 2014 in English and held by 460 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The bile acids as principal end products of cholesterol metabolism occupy a focal position in our understanding of the role of steroids in biological systems. The biogenesis of bile acids from cholesterol in higher animals, and their functions in regulating sterol metabolism and in gastrointestinal physiology have been elucidated by the development of elegant methodological approaches during the last two decades. The molecular pleomorphism exhibited by the bile acids and bile alcohols in the animal kingdom is a classic example of their role in biochemical evolution. The total story of the bile acids, their chemistry, their role in normal and abnormal physiological processes, and their significance in biochemical evolution has never been available in the form of a comprehensive treatise written in the words of those who have contributed to the development of our knowledge in this area"--Publisher's website
Nutrition, pre- and postnatal development by Myron Winick( Book )

35 editions published between 1979 and 1993 in English and Undetermined and held by 315 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The role of nutrition in neoplasia has been of longstanding concern. The subject was addressed by investigators in the first decade of this century, but was dropped. Vigorous attention was paid to this area of oncology in the 1940s, primarily due to the efforts of Dr. A. Tannenbaum at the Michael Reese Hospital in Chicago and the group at the University of Wisconsin in Madison. However, interest waned again until the 1970s when the question of diet and cancer was addressed and it has since been at the forefront of cancer research. The present volume (7) of Human Nutrition: A Comprehensive Treatise summarizes current knowledge in the area of nutrition and cancer. The first chapter is an overview written by John Higginson, whose contribution to understanding of cancer and nutrition spans several decades. The next essays cover epidemiology and physiology. The ensuing chapters address, in tum, those dietary factors relating to nutrition and cancer, namely, carbohydrates, protein, fat, cholesterol, calories, lipotropics, fiber, fruits and vegetables, vitamins, and alcohol. In a field moving as rapidly as this one is now, we can expect to miss a few late-breaking developments, but generally, the literature has been well covered through some time in 1988. Work relating to the effects of diet on oncogenes is in its very early development and has not been addressed as an entity per se
Lipids, lipoproteins, and drugs by David Kritchevsky( Book )

16 editions published between 1974 and 1976 in English and Undetermined and held by 306 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The First International Symposium on Drugs Affecting Lipid Metabolism was held in Milan in 1960. In the succeeding symposia, as in the first, new data and new ideas emerged which stimulated further research in the field. The present volume comprises the proceedings of the Fifth Symposium. In the area of lipoproteins, we have progressed from descriptions of their chemistry to discussion of their physiology and of their control of cholesterol metabolism at the cellular level. Workshop sessions explored thrombosis as affected by drugs, risk factors other than diet, animal models for atherosclerosis research and the organization of lipid clinics and clinical trials. All these topics represent advances in knowledge over the last decade. In the area of drugs a number of new compounds were introduced, many of them offering new structural concepts for hypocholesteremic activity. We expect that the next Symposium will offer as many new hypotheses and avenues of approach as did this one
Pharmacological control of lipid metabolism; proceedings by William L Holmes( Book )

15 editions published in 1972 in English and held by 300 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This Symposium was the fourth in a series which began in Milan, Italy, in 1960. Each meeting has introduced or developed some new concepts in the areas of lipid metabolism and drugs. The meetings have served as a springboard for new ideas which have, between meetings, become accepted and exploited. This meeting has been no exception. Principal among the many new concepts discussed were lipoprotein synthesis and metabolism, apoprotein structure and function, whole body metabolism of cholesterol, and aspects of myocardial and aortic metabolism. The Symposium also included a summary of current thought on management of hyperlipemias and atherosclerosis. Data on more than 30 drugs were introduced and discussed. We have every expectation that the next Symposium will include material which is now only in the formative stage

Drugs, lipid metabolism, and atherosclerosis : [proceedings] by David Kritchevsky( Book )

17 editions published between 1977 and 1978 in English and held by 284 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume comprises the proceedings of the Sixth International Symposium on Drugs Affecting Lipid Metabolism. Since the first of these symposia in 1960 these triennial meetings have been devoted to the exploration of new ideas, new data and new concepts related to lipid metabolism and atherosclerosis. The Sixth meeting was particularly stimulating in this regard. The concept of the "protective" action of HDL was thoroughly explored within the framework of its molecular biology with data on its epidemiological as well as its in vitro mechanism(s) of action being discussed. The action of drugs on arterial and HDL metabolism was also discussed as were newer aspects of platelet aggregation, especially as related to prostaglandins. New ground was also broken in discussions of lipid mobilization and mechanisms of hypocholesteremia. We are indebted to the many organizations who contributed generously to the support of this meeting. Among the sponsors, the assistance of the Lorenzini Foundation was especially helpful. As in all meetings of this type, the hard work of the local organizing committee was instrumental in its success

Nutrition and biotechnology in heart disease and cancer by John B Longenecker( Book )

10 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 222 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book presents the proceedings of a conference on Nutrition and Biotechnology in Heart Disease and Cancer held in December 1993. The book is divided into four sections devoted to heart disease, cancer, heart disease, and cancer and NIH initiatives. The book contains several valuable chapters reviewing the history of studies of nutrition in heart disease and cancer. These chapters are followed by descriptions of the role of dietary and endogenous fats in the development of heart and vascular disease and of recent genetic and molecular information discovered about heart disease. The cancer section reviews the relationship between nutrition and cancer and several putative molecular mechanisms of carcinogenesis. The third section discusses commonalities in role of nutrition toward development of heart disease and cancer. The purpose is to explore the commonality of nutrition in the development of heart and vascular disease and cancer. The forum from which this book derives sought to bring together presentations of greatest interest in research and therapy involving nutrition, molecular, and biotechnical advances along with a perspective on the most promising areas of future research in these fields. The audience this book is aimed at include leading researchers, administrators, students, and clinicians in the fields of heart and vascular disease, cancer, and nutrition. The book features a wide variety of views concerning the role of nutrition in development of heart disease and cancer. Understanding of these relationships at multiple levels is presented. This book reviews the current state of knowledge relating nutrition and heart disease and cancer. It presents several lines of evidencethat nutritional status has direct influence on heart disease and cancer. Suggested future directions are valuable to investigators, clinicians, and students. However, this is book ignores several additional biotechnologies that may yield valuable therapies as well as understanding of the biology of cancer and heart disease, such as PCR, transgenic animals, and antisense technology. Chapters describing many of the new molecular techniques and approaches would ably reinforce the goals of this book. One glaring omission is the lack of chapters exploring the ingestion of alcohol and tobacco and the generation of heart and vascular disease and cancer. Chapters discussing the epidemiology and molecular mechanistic links between these forms of nutrition and these two, expensive, ^^killer^^ diseases, especially in the light of Mickey Mantle's recent death, would have made this book highly relevant
Dietary fats, lipids, hormones, and tumorigenesis : new horizons in basic research by David Heber( Book )

9 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 213 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Reviews evidence that dietary fats, lipids, and hormones may play an important role in several common forms of cancer, in the hope that an improved understanding of these factors may lead to new strategies for prevention and treatment based on slowing the disease progression, and stimulate increased research into the link between nutrition and cancer. Among the topics are stromal- epithelial cell interactions in breast cancer, the metabolism of exogenous and endogenous arachidonic acid in cancer, lipid biomarkers of adherence to low fat diets, and nutritional approaches to the prevention of prostate cancer progression
