Women's health and menopause : risk reduction strategies--improved quality of health by Rodolfo Paoletti( )

22 editions published between 1997 and 2012 in English and held by 638 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The population structure in the world is rapidly changing, to the extent that in 75 years we will face a tripling of the elderly population. Although women are favored in terms of life expectancy, they also live with a longer period of disability (approximately twice that of aging men), as well as with the enemies of all the elderly, cardiovascular disease, cancer, and dementia. Menopause is the endocrine event that overlaps with aging, potentially worsening both the quality of life and the risks of disease in women. While the effect of hormone replacement therapy (HRT) on menopausal symptoms is generally viewed as rapid and consistent, and is thereby accepted by the scientific community, its relationship to the other aforementioned chronic conditions associated with menopause is considered variable and controversial. In analyzing these complex issues, this volume yields new and significant insights into both the study of menopause-related disorders and their treatment, by illustrating the most recent information on mechanisms of actions of new estrogen receptors and on the use of sophisticated techniques of statistical analysis for population-based studies

Lipid pharmacology by Rodolfo Paoletti( Book )

26 editions published between 1964 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 407 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Medicinal Chemistry: Lipid Pharmacology, Volume 2 focuses on the effects of drugs on lipid metabolism. This book explores the methodology in lipid chemistry by which transport and release mechanisms can be investigated very effectively by the use of drugs. <br>Organized into 12 chapters, this book starts with an overview of the total lipid fraction that can be isolated from tissues by any one of many solvent extraction procedures. This text then defines atherosclerosis disease and explores the studies in experimental atherosclerosis, which are designed to better understand the progression of t

Calcium antagonists : pharmacology and clinical research by T Godfraind( Book )

13 editions published between 1988 and 2013 in English and held by 339 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although the importance of calcium (Ca2+) in the maintenance of cardiac contractility was recognized as early as 1880, the critical role of the ion in the contractile process in skeletal, cardiac, and smooth muscle has only been established within the last three decades. As the complexity of the pharmacological actions of the Ca2+ channel inhibitors grows, there is a continued need to further clarify the inhibitors, both chemically and functionally. This volume provides an update of the field based on the work presented at the 5th International Symposium on Calcium Antagonists: Pharmacology and Clinical Research. It reviews the current state of the growing area of molecular biology of Ca2+ channels. In the cardiovascular area, in addition to the well-established clinical uses of Ca2+ channel inhibitors, exciting new work pointing to an application in atherosclerosis is described. The book also includes important uses of Ca2+ antagonists in novel areas of interest such as the gastrointestinal tract, renal protection and multi-drug resistance
Pharmacological control of lipid metabolism; proceedings by International Symposium on Drugs Affecting Lipid Metabolism( Book )

2 editions published in 1972 in English and held by 308 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
Pharmacology of hormonal polypeptides and proteins : proceedings by Nathan Back( Book )

14 editions published in 1968 in English and held by 293 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It can be concluded (under the specific experimental procedures emƯ ployed) that:- 1) HCG labelled with 1 - 2 atoms of radioactive iodine did not differ sigƯ nificantly from the unlabelled hormone; 2) The ovary alone exhibited a capacity to affix specifically HCG; 3) The amount of radioactive material in the ovary was directly proportƯ ional to the quantity of labelled HCG injected; 4) When the HCG present in the circulation is bound to an antiserum to HCG, the antigen-antibody complex is not concentrated by the ovary; 5) Circulating labelled HCG decreased to 50% within 30 minutes following a single intravenous injection; 6) There are four different phases of ovarian uptake of HCG, namely:Ư the first phase, when there is only an inflow from the circulation and storƯ age mainly in the follicular envelopes; the second phase, when there is a greater inflow than outflow; the third phase, when the inflow is equal to the outflow; and the fourth period, when the outflow is bigger than the inƯ flow.

Drugs affecting lipid metabolism VIII by David Kritchevsky( Book )

8 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 292 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
Lipids, lipoproteins, and drugs by 5Th International Symposium on Drugs Affecting Lipid Metabolism( Book )

13 editions published between 1974 and 1976 in English and held by 289 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

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

10 editions published between 1977 and 1978 in English and held by 262 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

Factors in formation and regression of the atherosclerotic plaque by G. V. R Born( Book )

7 editions published in 1982 in English and held by 202 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Interest in the field of atherosclerosis research has broadened in recent years. However the main focus remains on the physiopathology of the arterial wall and on its interaction with blood constituents. The purpose of this NATO Advanced Study Institute on "Factors in Formation and Regression of the Atherosclerotic Plaque" was to discuss the following points: a) The physiopathology of the arterial wall; b) Animal models; c) Methods of studying the progression and regression of atherosclerotic lesions quantitatively; d) The role of lipoproteins, platelets, smoke, alcohol, etc. in the formation of atherosclerotic lesions; e) The pharmacological and dietary control of "risk factors." This volume is a collection of the most relevant presentations on these topics. We hope it will provide a background for young scientists as well as a stimulus for further research to biologists and clinicians. We wish to acknowledge the support of NATO and the Nutrition Foundation of Italy in organizing this Advanced Study Institute

Free radicals, lipoproteins, and membrane lipids by A Crastes de Paulet( Book )

10 editions published between 1990 and 1991 in English and held by 198 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book contains the proceedings of the ARW NATO Conference on "Action of Free Radicals and Active Forms of Oxygen on Lipoproteins and Membrane Lipids: Cellular Interactions and Atherogenesis", held in Bendor, France, October 5-8,1988. Since the pioneer work of Mc Cord and Fridovitch, growing interest has been focused on the study of the role of oxyradicals role in pathology. This interest is reflected in the exponential increase in the number of papers on free radicals, the success of specialized journals and books on this theme, and the organization of national and international meetings. These meetings have discussed, from.a broad point of view, the problems concerning the mechanisms of production of free radicals, their effects on cell CO!1$tituants (lipids, proteins, nucleic acids) and cell function, the methods of analysis of these phenomena, the pathological states in which free radicals may be involved, natural biological defense systems, and the design of "antiradical" therapies. But it is now well established that the most common target of oxy free radicals are membrane lipids because of their chemical nature (cholesterol in saturation, malonic linkage of polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA» and of their regular structural arrangement (monolayers in lipoproteins, bilayers in cell membranes). Thus the analysis of the products resulting from the action of oxy free radicals on PUFA is considered the best tool to indirectly evaluate the effects of tissue peroxidations, although the analytical basis for doing so is very questionable
