Emery & Rimoin's principles and practice of medical genetics by Alan E. H Emery( )

16 editions published between 2002 and 2013 in English and held by 340 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the three decades that have elapsed since the first edition of this book was published, the field of medical genetics has experienced explosive growth. The rate of change in the science and application of medical genetics that occurred in the period spanning the first through the fifth editions of this book has markedly accelerated. In the 1980s, genetics was viewed by most practitioners as an important but obscure corner of medicine. Now it is widely recognized that virtually all human disorders have a genetic component, and genetics is viewed as the key basic science in uncovering the mysteries of disease pathogenesis
Emery and Rimoin's principles and practice of medical genetics and genomics by Reed E Pyeritz( )

10 editions published between 2018 and 2019 in English and held by 334 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For decades, Emery and Rimoin's Principles and Practice of Medical Genetics and Genomics has served as the ultimate resource for clinicians integrating genetics into medical practice. With detailed coverage in contributions from over 250 of the world's most trusted authorities in medical genetics and a series of 11 volumes available for individual sale, the Seventh Edition of this classic reference includes the latest information on seminal topics such as prenatal diagnosis, genome and exome sequencing, public health genetics, genetic counseling, and management and treatment strategies to complete its coverage of this growing field for medical students, residents, physicians, and researchers involved in the care of patients with genetic conditions. This comprehensive yet practical resource emphasizes theory and research fundamentals related to applications of medical genetics across the full spectrum of inherited disorders and applications to medicine more broadly. This volume, Foundations, summarizes basic theories, concepts, research areas, and the history of medical genetics, providing a contextual framework for integrating genetics into medical practice. In this new edition, clinically oriented information is supported by full-color images and expanded sections on the foundations of genetic analytics, next generation sequencing, and therapeutics. With regular advances in genomic technologies propelling precision medicine into the clinic, Emery and Rimoin's Principles and Practice of Medical Genetics and Genomics: Seventh Edition bridges the gap between high-level molecular genetics and practical application and serves as an invaluable clinical tool for the health professionals and researchers. -- Provided by publisher

Neurofibromatosis by Bruce R Korf( Book )

13 editions published between 1990 and 2011 in English and German and held by 264 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What little is known about the rare genetic disease popularly but wrongly associated with The Elephant Man, is presented in terms that people with no medical training can decipher, and clinicians can relate to their knowledge. Focuses on the care of the patient with any of a wide range of symptoms, while waiting for the molecular geneticists to track down the gene and figure out how it works
Emery and Rimoin's essential medical genetics by David L Rimoin( )

13 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and Spanish and held by 203 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For decades, Emery and Rimoin's Principles and Practice of Medical Genetics has provided the ultimate source for practicing clinicians to learn how the study of genetics can be integrated into practice. Developed in parallel to the sixth edition, and featuring 174 original contributions from the many authors of the full set, this one volume work expertly condenses and synthesizes the most clinically relevant content, for convenient desk reference. Helping to bridge the gap between high-level molecular genetics and individual application, it follows the multi-volume set in enc

Natural History of Plexiform Neurofibromas in NF1( Book )

10 editions published between 1999 and 2007 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The major goals of this study have been to document the usefulness of volumetric MRI as a means of following the growth of plexiform neurofibromas, measuring the rate of growth of plexiform neurofibromas over time, and establishing a consortium of clinical centers to carry out clinical trials of treatment for plexiform neurofibromas in the future. Establishment of this consortium has been considerably more difficult than anticipated, due to the need to have every center approved both by a local IRB and the army IRB. Many minor and a few major differences in wording of informed consents have impeded many centers from completing the IRB approval process. We have tried to streamline this process, now, and expect that 19 centers will be approved by the first quarter of 2001. With this, however, we will have accomplished one of our major goals, to create a consortium of clinical centers, supported by a tissue repository, database, pathology review, MRI review, and statistical support. We have also taken a major step towards demonstration that the volumetric approach can be accomplished in spite of the complexities of imaging of plexiform neurofibromas by showing that three independent observers obtain similar volume measurements. The final goal, that of determining rate of neurofibroma growth, will take longer than expected due to the slow acquisition of IRB approval for all clinical centers, but this is expected to be accomplished as well, albeit after a longer period of study than initially anticipated. The first clinical trial of a farnesyl protein transferase inhibitor is about to begin under the auspices of the National Cancer Institute. We are involved in this study, using the same MRI protocol and tissue repository for that study, It is expected that additional clinical trials will begin over the next sevenal years, and that the approaches and resources of this consortium will facilitate the efforts to test these drugs and determine treatment endpoints in NFI.c

NF Consortium Development Site: University of Alabama at Birmingham( Book )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

University of Alabama at Birmingham has worked together with eight other consortium development sites and the Consortium Operations Center to develop the approach to develop innovative biologically based therapeutics for NF1 and to implement sequential hypothesis driven translation trials for multiple NF1 clinical manifestations. Dr. Korf has served as co chair of the plexiform and other neurofibromas committee as well as chair of the publications committee. In addition, he serves as a member of the Operations Center. Several other UAB faculty serve on additional committees (Dr. Amy Theos plexiform and other neurofibromas committee; Dr. Joseph Pressy MPNST committee; Dr. Alyssa Reddy visual pathway and other intracranial gliomas committee; Dr. Joseph Ackerson neurocognitive intervention committee). These efforts resulted in submission of a grant proposal to establish the NF1 Research Consortium to the Department of Defense in August 2006
