Endocrinology of the Heart in Health and Disease: Integrated, Cellular, and Molecular Endocrinology of the Heart covers the traditional concepts of cardio-endocrinology, the role of the various hormone systems, both in health and disease, therapeutic implications, and other recent advances in the various fields represented. The book explores how cardiac hormones are changed in various cardiac pathologies and the recent success that has been uncovered in their therapeutic use. Additional focus is placed on how the heart responds both physiologically and pathophysiologically to a plethora of circulating hormones, reinforcing the importance of the heart as a target of numerous endocrine systems, such as the brain, renal, and adipose. Significant advances have come from basic, clinical, and translational research from a multiplicity of investigators with diverse backgrounds. The book features over 200 photomicrographs, diagrams of molecular relationships, and tables that complement and support the text. It is aimed at a wide audience, including graduate students and post-doctoral fellows in a wide array of biomedical departments and PhD programs (e.g. Pathology, Physiology, Genetics, Pharmacology, Molecular Biology, and Cell Biology) related to the endocrine and cardiovascular sciences curricula, as well as medical residents in pathology, laboratory medicine, internal medicine, and cardiology. Develops the concept of the heart as both an endocrine organ and an endocrine target, exploring the endocrine function of the heart in both health and disease Explains how the levels of several cardiac hormones are changed in various cardiac pathologies and how some hormones can be used therapeutically Offers a single resource on cardio-endocrine disease which collates and curates the wide range of advances being made in the areas of molecular biology, biochemistry, physiology, and pathology

This compilation begins by exploring some socio-anthropological aspects of hypertension, namely the disparity between medical and patients' understanding of the disease and how this difference affects medical management, self-care and prevention of disease, the process of coping with suffering and other factors. Chapter 2 reviews the current status of various techniques applied in nano-encapsulation of vitamin E in the food, pharmaceutical and cosmetic industries and the versatile advantages nano-encapsulation of vitamin E provides for site-specific targeted delivery and effective absorption along cells. Chapter 3 discusses the medical imperative of ensuring pain relief for children facing the end of life, provides information about palliative pain management and summarizes the current literature on the subject. Following chapters present data on the impact of education and reading and writing habits on linguistic processing abilities and other cognitive constructs relating to healthy aging, discussions of ethical dilemmas associated with pediatric palliative care including parents' decision making and medical futility, and a review of the recommended treatment for multidrug resistant tuberculosis (MDR-TB) with strategies to prevent transmission and treatment failure. Also, the compilation includes a chapter exploring the oral and dental manifestations of Paget's disease, a bone remodeling disease in which increased bone resorption occurs followed by excessive deposition of structurally inorganized and weaker bone, and a quantitative analysis of the mortality rates due to Parkinson's disease in the USA from 1976 to 2017.
