News headlines are forever reporting diseases that take huge tolls on humans, wildlife, domestic animals, and both cultivated and native plants worldwide. These diseases can also completely transform the ecosystems that feed us and provide us with other critical benefits, from flood control to water purification. And yet diseases sometimes serve to maintain the structure and function of the ecosystems on which humans depend. Gathering thirteen essays by forty leading experts who convened at the Cary Conference at the Institute of Ecosystem Studies in 2005, this book develops an integrated fram

The development of the first vaccine for the prevention of cancer came 30 years after Harald Zur Hausen first hypothesized that the Human Papillomavirus (HPV) might be associated with cervical cancer. In those 30 years, much progress has been made in the diagnosis, treatment and now prevention of cervical cancer. In a special issue of Disease Markers twelve articles explore the epidemiology of HPV, testing strategies for HPV infections, new HPV detection methods and other potential biomarkers that might prove useful in cervical cancer diagnosis. Further articles address the emerging research o

The Liver in Biology and Disease was conceived as a sequel in the series Principles of Medical Biology, whose general aim continues to be the integration of human biology and molecular cell biology into modern molecular medicine. It is a volume molded by the Information Revolution which few will deny has forced the teaching faculties in our medical schools to curtail and prune the teaching load and focus on fundamentals and principles. With this intention in mind, a volume of this nature takes into account the close dependence of progress in the medical sciences on bioinformatics (gene and p

The various chapters of "Stem Cells and Disease" describe the role of cancer stem cells and progenitor cells in disease progression and treatment. These reviews cover the gamut of tissue types and cell lines as well as differentiate between normal and diseased cells and tissues. By examining the role of these self-renewing cells in disease it is hoped that the development of novel therapeutics for a variety of afflictions in today’s society can be achieved. It is first necessary to distinguish between embryonic stem cells and adult stem cells. Embryonic stem cells are undifferentiated ce

It was once assumed that mitochondrial diseases were rare and that few people were affected. As knowledge has grown about these organelles and their function, it became clear that mitochondrial malfunction could be linked to several chronic diseases. Diabetes has been associated with DNA mutation and can cause mutation itself. This text discusses findings involving the effects of disease on mitochondrial number, mitogenesis, and the base sequence of mitochondrial DNA. Experts discuss their study of mitochondria and what happens when it malfunctions. This book also explores the idea that mutate
