Cellular Transplantation

From Laboratory to Clinic

 

Academic Press, 2007.

ISBNs 9780123694157

Colección: ScienceDirect

Resumen (en inglés): There have been tremendous strides in cellular transplantation in recent years, leading to accepted practice for the treatment of certain diseases, and use for many others in trial phases. The long history of cellular transplantation, or the transfer of cells from one organism or region of the body to another, has been revolutionized by advances in stem cell research, as well as developments in gene therapy.

Cellular Transplants: From Lab to Clinic provides a thorough foundation of the basic science underpinning this exciting field, expert overviews of the state-of-the-art, and detailed description of clinical success stories to date, as well as insights into the road ahead. As highlighted by this timely and authoritative survey, scale-up technologies and whole organ transplantation are among the hurdles representing the next frontier.

The contents are organized into four main sections, with the first covering basic biology, including transplant immunology, the use of immunosuppressive drugs, stem cell biology, and the development of donor animals for transplantation. The next part looks at peripheral and reconstructive applications, followed by a section devoted to transplantation for diseases of the central nervous system. The last part presents efforts to address the key challenges ahead, such as identifying novel transplantable cells and integrating biomaterials and nanotechnology with cell matrices.

· Provides detailed description of clinical trials in cell transplantation
· Review of current therapeutic approaches
· Coverage of the broad range of diseases addressed by cell therapeutics
· Discussion of stem cell biology and its role in transplantation

Channels, Carriers, and Pumps

An Introduction to Membrane Transport

 

2nd ed. Elsevier, 2015.

ISBNs 9780124165793

Colección: ScienceDirect

Resumen (en inglés):

An introduction to the principles of membrane transport: How molecules and ions move across the cell membrane by simple diffusion and by making use of specialized membrane components (channels, carriers, and pumps). The text emphasizes the quantitative aspects of such movement and its interpretation in terms of transport kinetics. Molecular studies of channels, carriers, and pumps are described in detail as well as structural principles and the fundamental similarities between the various transporters and their evolutionary interrelationships. The regulation of transporters and their role in health and disease are also considered.

  • Provides an introduction to the properties of transport proteins: channels, carriers, and pumps
  • Presents up-to-date information on the structure of transport proteins and on their function and regulation
  • Includes introductions to transport kinetics and to the cloning of genes that code transport proteins
  • Furnishes a link between the experimental basis of the subject and theoretical model building

Character Concept in Evolutionary Biology, The

 

Academic Press, 2001.

ISBNs 9780127300559

Colección: ScienceDirect

Resumen (en inglés):

Almost all evolutionary biologists, indeed all biologists, use particular features to study life. These characteristics or features used by evolutionary biologists are used in a particular way to unravel a tangled evolutionary history, document the rate of evolutionary change, or as evidence of biodiversity. "Characters" are the "data" of evolutionary biology and they can be employed differently in research providing both opportunities and limitations.

The Character Concept in Evolutionary Biology is about characters, their use, how different sorts of characters are limited, and what are appropriate methods for character analysis. Leading evolutionary biologists from around the world are contributors to this authoritative review of the "character concept." Because characters and the conception of characters are central to all studies of evolution, and because evolution is the central organizing principle of biology, this book will appeal to a wide cross-section of biologists.

  • Focuses upon "characters" -- fundamental data for evolutionary biology
  • Covers the myriad ways in which characters are defined, described, and distinguished
  • Includes historical, morphological, molecular, behavioral, and philosophical perspectives

Chemical Fate and Transport in the Environment

 

3rd ed. Academic Press, 2015.

ISBNs 9780123982568

Colección: ScienceDirect

Resumen (en inglés): 2015 Textbook Excellence Award – 2nd or Later Edition: Physical Sciences, Text and Academic Authors Association

The third edition of Chemical Fate and Transport in the Environment—winner of a 2015 Textbook Excellence Award (Texty) from The Text and Academic Authors Association—explains the fundamental principles of mass transport, chemical partitioning, and chemical/biological transformations in surface waters, in soil and groundwater, and in air. Each of these three major environmental media is introduced by descriptive overviews, followed by a presentation of the controlling physical, chemical, and biological processes. The text emphasizes intuitively based mathematical models for chemical transport and transformations in the environment, and serves both as a textbook for senior undergraduate and graduate courses in environmental science and engineering, and as a standard reference for environmental practitioners.

  • Winner of a 2015 Texty Award from the Text and Academic Authors Association
  • Includes many worked examples as well as extensive exercises at the end of each chapter
  • Illustrates the interconnections and similarities among environmental media through its coverage of surface waters, the subsurface, and the atmosphere
  • Written and organized concisely to map to a single-semester course
  • Discusses and builds upon fundamental concepts, ensuring that the material is accessible to readers who do not have an extensive background in environmental science

Chemical Weapons Destruction and Explosive Waste

Unexploded Ordnance Remediation

 

William Andrew Publishing, 1996.

ISBNs 9780815514060

Colección: ScienceDirect

Resumen (en inglés): Some of the more difficult environmental problems facing the Department of Defense (DOD) include (1) chemical weapons destruction, (2) explosive waste remediation, and (3) unexploded ordnance clearance and extraction. It is conceivable that $50 to $100 billion will be spent by DOD for these three programs, offering unusual opportunities for environmental engineering and related firms.

Military installations are similar to small cities in terms of population, industrial activities, and some types of contaminated sites. However, some cover an area larger than a small state. DOD has operated industrial facilities on its installations for several decades that have generated, stored, recycled, or disposed of hazardous wastes. Many of these activities have contaminated the nearby soil and groundwater. To study and clean up contaminated sites, DOD established the Installation Restoration Program (IRP) in 1975. In 1984, the IRP was made part of the Defense Environmental Restoration Program.

The Secretary of Defense delegated cleanup responsibility to the Army, Navy, the Air Force, and the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA). Cleanup actions are usually accomplished under contract with private firms, which are monitored by the services. Most cleanup actions are funded through the Defense Environmental Restoration Account (DERA) and the Base Realignment and Closure Account. Congress established DERA in 1984 to fund the cleanup of inactive contaminated sites on DOD installations.

The technology to clean up the conventional hazardous wastes on DOD sites are the same as those utilized for industrial sites, and well-documented by this publisher.

However, there are three DOD programs that require the utilization of somewhat unusual or different technologies that have not been as well documented. These three programs are:

1. Chemical weapons destruction
2. Remediation of explosives contaminated soils and lagoons
3. Unexploded ordnance detection, clearance, and extraction

This book discusses the current and potential treatment technologies involved in these three programs.
