Obesity in childhood and adolescence by W Kiess( )

14 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 1,022 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Obesity in childhood and adolescence has reached epidemic proportions in all industrialized countries around the world. Its impact on individual lives as well as on health economics has to be recognized by physicians and the public alike. Among the most common consequences of obesity in the adolescent are hypertension, dyslipidemia, back pain and psychosocial problems. Therapeutic strategies include psychological and family therapy, lifestyle/behavior modification and nutrition education. The role of regular exercise and exercise programs is emphasized. Surgical procedures and drugs used in adult obesity are still not generally recommended for obese adolescents. This book aims to increase physicians' knowledge and understanding of obesity in childhood and adolescence as well as to further public awareness of the health burden and economic dimension of obesity at a young age. Several chapters deliver insights into the basic understanding of which factors contribute to or prevent the development of overweight and obesity in young people. Other contributions provide tools for the clinician to manage the care of the child and adolescent with overweight/obesity. In addition, knowledge from the latest scientific studies on the molecular biology of obesity is also presented

Cytokines and colony stimulating factors : methods and protocols( )

10 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 331 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Enormous effort has been spent developing many new laboratory techniques for studying immune cells and the immune system, not only to increase fundamental understanding, but also to procure therapeutic success in a clinical setting. In Cytokines and Colony Stimulating Factors: Methods and Protocols, leading laboratory experts describe for the novice investigator a host of novel technologies and molecular techniques specifically designed to study cellular immunology and promote its gene therapy applications. Presented in step-by-step detail to ensure ready reproducibility, these protocols range from flow cytometric techniques to detect cytokines and growth factors in different specimens, to methods for generating and expanding dendritic cells and hematopoietic progenitors from different origins. Each proven method has been fine-tuned for experimental successs by the investigator who developed it, and includes notes on troubleshooting and avoiding potential pitfalls. Although the protocols require little previous experience, even highly skilled researchers will augment their experimental range with many novel timesaving techniques. Cutting-edge and highly practical, Cytokines and Colony Stimulating Factors: Methods and Protocols provides researchers a carefully evaluated set of powerful tools for successful experimental research on cytokines and their role in gene therapy

Small for gestational age : causes and consequences by W Kiess( )

18 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 213 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Intrauterine growth restriction in the human, the origin of many serious medical, ethical, socioeconomic and humanitarian issues, still needs in-depth studies. The current volume presents the latest research results and offers detailed discussions on clinical care. The term small for gestational age (SGA) is defined and manifestations of prenatal growth retardation and its etiology are described. Special emphasis is placed on the role of genetic defects, in particular in the IGF/GH axis. Besides, not only the immediate consequences for SGA neonates and their clinical care are examined, but also possible sequelae in childhood. A study of utmost importance considers the neurological and intellectual consequences for SGA children. It is further revealed that fetal growth restriction can adversely affect health well into adulthood, and increase the risk for type 2 diabetes. Finally, interesting insights into the causes and consequences of low birth weight in developing countries are provided. This publication is a must for pediatricians, neonatologists, obstetricians and endocrinologists, as well as anyone interested in embryology, genetics, diabetes, clinical nutrition, molecular biology and neuroendocrinology

110 Jahre Universitätsklinik und Poliklinik für Kinder und Jugendliche in Leipzig 4 Tabellen( Book )

4 editions published in 2003 in German and English and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Diese Festschrift ist ein ebenso wichtiges wie in ihrer Zusammenstellung seltenes Zeitdokument der Kinder- und Jugendheilkunde in Deutschland: Es würdigt die Entwicklung der Leipziger Universitätskinderklinik seit ihrer Gründung durch Prof. Heubner im Jahre 1891. In zahlreichen Beiträgen werden die medizinischen Leistungen und Fortschritte der Klinik hervorgehoben und die historische Entwick-lung der Klinik ausgeführt. Erstmals wird dabei auch die Zeit des Nationalsozialismus und die Rolle Werner Catels, des damaligen Klinikdirektors, bei der Initiierung, Durchführung und pseudoethischen Rechtfertigung der Euthanasie an dieser Klinik und in Deutschland nicht ausgeklammert, sondern offen und kritisch diskutiert. Die Abhandlungen, auch über dieses dunkle Kapitel in der Geschichte der Klinik, werden durch Zeitzeugenberichte ehemaliger Mitarbeiter verdeutlicht und bereichert. Einen weiteren wichtigen Punkt stellt die Dokumentation aller Diplom- und Doktorarbeiten aus der Zeit der ehemaligen DDR dar; diese Zusammenstellung bietet einen unmittelbaren Einblick in die Forschungstätigkeiten der Klinik im Wandel der Zeit. Abgerundet wird das Buch durch Fotodokumentationen wesentlicher Bereiche und den ehemaligen Aussenstellen der Universitätskinderklinik. Nicht zuletzt markiert das Buch den Neubeginn nach der Wende in der Universitätsklinik und Poliklinik für Jugendliche in Leipzig. Auch damit legt es ein wichtiges Zeugnis darüber ab, wie gesellschaftliche und politische Veränderungen nicht nur den Einzelnen, sondern auch die gemeinhin als unpolitisch geltende medizinische Forschung und ihre Institutionen formt und tiefgreifend beeinflusst
