Show synopsis This is the first major textbook of molecular medicine to integrate the newest findings from cell and molecular biology with the basic principles of internal medicine. J. Larry Jameson, MD and his authoritative contributors, many of them world-renowned clinicians and researchers, expand the envelope of clinical understanding to encompass a wide array of disciplines-including neurology, cardiology, hematology, nephrology, genetics, endocrinology, oncology, dermatology, psychiatry, and infectious diseases-revealing the underlying molecular mechanisms of disease, as well as the routes to unprecedented novel medicines and treatments now emerging from the new molecular approaches. Here physicians will find informative updates in both their own specialties and in disciplines they may not have been able to follow closely. They will also gain a fuller understanding of the role played by genetic defects in a host of diseases, among them peripheral neuropathies, Alzheimer's disease, arrhythmias, leukemias and lymphomas, cystic fibrosis, hepatitis, HIV, autoimmune disorders, polycystic kidney disease, schizophrenia, affective disorders, alcoholism, Huntington's disease, and many more. This groundbreaking and uniquely valuable new approach to human medical biology will provide practicing physicians, medical students, and researchers alike with a powerful new account of internal medicine and help them to better understand the future of medicine.
