Genes, Environment and Alzheimer's Disease

 

Academic Press, 2016.

ISBNs 9780128028513

Colección: ScienceDirect

Resumen (en inglés):

Genes, Environment and Alzheimer's Disease discusses the role that activities such as exercise can play in cardiovascular health, while also highlighting the fact that the last 10 years have brought great discoveries in the strong environmental component of brain disorders, neurodegeneration, and cognitive decline.

It is now clear that brain insult is an environmental risk factor for AD, while on the other hand, lifestyle components such as exercise and level of education may play a protective role, delaying the onset and/or severity of the disease. Evidence from experiments in rodent models of Alzheimer’s disease contributes major insight into the molecular mechanisms by which the environment plays its role in AD. Additionally, there are diseases related to lifestyle that may lead to AD. This volume reviews new discoveries related to all these factors, serving as a translational tool for clinicians and researchers interested in genetic and environmental risk factors for the disease.

  • Provides the first volume to link genetic and environmental risk factors for Alzheimer’s disease and dementia
  • Aids researchers and clinicians in understanding the basic mechanisms of Alzheimer’s disease and cognitive decline
  • Brings the basic science and clinical perspectives together in a single volume, facilitating translational possibilities
  • Includes a range of molecular to behavioral components assembled into a single volume that creates an excellent resource for basic and clinical neuroscientists

Genetically Modified Organisms in Agriculture

Economics and Politics

 

Academic Press, 2001.

ISBNs 9780125154222

Colección: ScienceDirect

Resumen (en inglés): Genetically modified crops have become a topic of great interest among scientists, regulators, consumers, farmers, and politicians. Despite their potential benefits, public hostility toward these crops is causing dramatic changes to import/export policies, food safety regulations, and agricultural practices around the world. Genetically Modified Organisms in Agriculture provides a comprehensive overview of the subject and a balanced look at the costs and benefits of GMO products.

Part I reviews the scientific, economic, and political issues relating to the use of agricultural GMOs. Chapters cover specific applications, regulatory concerns, import/export patterns, international trade issues, and a discussion of future trends. Part II offers a unique look at all sides of the GMO controversies, with short chapters contributed by leading individuals with widely different perspectives. Part III presents a more in-depth look at selected issues plus helpful reference materials.

This book makes the latest information on GMOs accessible to all interested parties, including students, laypeople, scientists, activists, and professionals working in related fields.

* Additional detailed footnotes and references for the academic
* International contributions from the US, Europe and India
* Covers the perspectives of different groups involved in the controversies: governments, environmental agencies, consumers, industrial agencies and the developing world

Genomics and Society

Ethical, Legal, Cultural and Socioeconomic Implications

 

Academic Press, 2016.

ISBNs 9780124201958

Colección: ScienceDirect

Resumen (en inglés):

Genomics and Society; Ethical, Legal-Cultural, and Socioeconomic Implications is the first book to address the vast and thorny web of ELSI topics identified as core priorities of the NHGRI in 2011.

The work addresses fundamental issues of biosociety and bioeconomy as the revolution in biology moves from research lab to healthcare system.

Of particular interest to healthcare practitioners, bioethicists, and health economists, and of tangential interest to the gamut of applied social scientists investigating the societal impact of new medical paradigms, the work describes a myriad of issues around consent, confidentiality, rights, patenting, regulation, and legality in the new era of genomic medicine.

  • Addresses the vast and thorny web of ELSI topics identified as core priorities of the NHGRI in 2011
  • Presents the core fundamental issues of biosociety and bioeconomy as the revolution in biology moves from research lab to healthcare system
  • Describes a myriad of issues around consent, including confidentiality, rights, patenting, regulation, and more
