Abstract
Injuries to the hamstring and quadriceps muscles can occur in both low- and high-impact sports and as such are among the more common injuries incurred by athletes. Reviewing the relevant physiology, epidemiology, mechanisms, clinical presentation and treatment of these conditions, Hamstring and Quadriceps Injuries in Athletes covers all sports-related injuries of the thigh musculature in one place. Topics covered include mid substance injuries, acute proximal tendon avulsions and harvesting of hamstrings, as well as strains, contusions and ruptures of the quadriceps, including the use of biologic enhancing agents in healing. Chapters on rehabilitation and injury prevention present techniques to maximize recovery and minimize long-term impairment, speeding up return to play. It will be an often-used and reliable guide for sports medicine practitioners, orthopedists, physical therapists, primary care physicians, team physicians and trainers who treat the injured athlete.

Abstract
The insulin-like growth factor system has been shown to play a critical role in cancer development and progression. Insulin-like Growth Factors and Cancer: From Basic Biology to Therapeutics, specifically brings these aspects to the reader. The volume covers the epidemiological aspects of the relationships between circulating insulin and IGF-1 levels and the risk for cancer and cancer-related mortality and in particularly in disease states such as obesity and Type 2 diabetes. It then addresses the basic biology of the system and how the ligands, receptors and IGF-binding proteins affect cancer cell biology and cancer progression. Finally, it discusses the therapeutic potential of inhibiting the receptors using various newly discovered monoclonal antibodies and tyrosine kinase inhibitors that are in preclinical and clinical trials.

Abstract
"Integrated Care in Psychiatry: Redefining the Role of Mental Health Professionals in the Medical Setting" is a landmark title in the field, offering a clear, detailed, and cohesive call by leading experts for coordinated care for patients with concurrent psychiatric and medical conditions. The renowned editors and authors argue that what is slowly occurring, and greatly needed at a faster pace, is nothing less than a sea change in the way that psychiatric care will be delivered. The current, mostly segregated, medical and psychiatric model of care has led to the development of competing medical and psychiatric subcultures that have resulted in a lack of dialog among health providers, administrators, and payers -- and thus in less than optimal patient outcomes. To remedy this problem, the book offers a practical, insightful road map to achieving the central tenet of health reform truly coordinated, patient-centered care where the care experience for the patient, the medical care itself, and the cost outcomes improve as the system changes from fee-for-service to population-based health. An invaluable reference for all clinicians, policy makers, payers, administrators, and others interested in the debate surrounding healthcare systems, Integrated Care in Psychiatry: Redefining the Role of Mental Health Professionals in the Medical Setting is a major contribution to the literature and a gold standard resource"--Provided by publisher.

The integration of clinical findings, laboratory results, and disease progression is critical for the diagnosis and treatment of patients with skin lymphoma. This atlas includes numerous clinical and histological images with diagrams, tables, and text describing each type of lymphoma in the current cutaneous classification scheme, which includes information on the recent classification scheme for cutaneous lymphoma published by the World Health Organization and the European Organization for Research and Treatment of Cancer Cutaneous Lymphoma Group. Atlas of Cutaneous Lymphomas: Classification and Differential Diagnosis includes chapters on synonyms, clinical features (presentation, prognosis, and treatment), laboratory findings (histopathology, immunophenotype, and molecular), differential diagnosis, and presentation of clinical cases for each diagnostic entity. In addition, chapters are included on T-cell lymphomas, B-cell lymphomas, ancillary techniques including immunohistochemistry and molecular tests, and a glossary of terms. This book will help clarify the classification of cutaneous lymphoma and will serve as a useful tool for physicians involved in the diagnosis and treatment of patients with cutaneous lymphoma.

Abstract
Integrative Therapies in Lung Health and Sleep provides an overview of integrative therapies to assist clinicians caring for patients with acute or chronic lung diseases and sleep disorders--emphasizing the scientific bases for these therapies; and their implementation into clinical practice. This volume focuses on complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) treatments, modalities, and practices that are integrated with conventional medical treatment and for which there is some evidence of safety and efficacy. Whole Medical Systems, with a specific focus on Traditional Chinese Medicine, are also addressed. Individual chapters are devoted to specific health conditions or illnesses, addressing the current state of the science in the four organizing CAM domains, including available information regarding benefits, risks, or safety considerations. Unique aspects of this volume are the chapters related to evaluation of the evidence base for integrative therapies; new animal model research with herbal preparations focused on the serious problem of sepsis in the ICU; guidance for counseling patients with chronic lung illnesses who may be desperate for a cure; and palliative and end-of-life care for patients with chronic lung conditions. Clinicians in various health care settings will find Integrative Therapies in Lung Health and Sleep beneficial in their practice, particularly as the use of integrative therapies becomes more widespread.

Abstract
Integrative Weight Management: A Guide for Clinicians intends to educate physicians and nutritionists about the wide ranges of approaches to weight control from non-traditional sources. The options for weight management in conventional practices are limited to a small number of medications, a confusing array of dietary approaches and surgical procedures with their inherent risks and complications. Unfortunately medical practitioners are not exposed to nutrition and weight control principles during training and thus are reluctant to manage their patients weight control issues. This volume is structured into 4 sections: Introduction to Weight Management Disorders; Morbidity and Mortality of Obesity; Therapy of Obesity; and Integrative Medicine and Obesity. Integrative Weight Management: A Guide for Clinicians represents a powerful collaboration of dozens of leading experts in the fields of nutrition, weight management and integrative medicine who have managed countless numbers of patients and summarized the research from thousands of articles to create an up-to- date state of the art guide for healthcare practitioners, allied health professionals and public health authorities who manage those who are overweight/obese along with the associated metabolic consequences.

Abstract
Intended for readers with a background in fertility medicine as well as those less familiar with IVF, this comprehensive work presents an update on preimplantation genetic testing to enable single embryo transfer (SET). An international cast of contributors explains the treatment sequence, from ovulation induction to luteal support, aiming to transfer only one euploid embryo. Applications of molecular techniques for gamete and embryo assessment are fully detailed, with a focus on the strengths and limitations of each. In addition, expert commentary is shared across a range of regulatory challenges associated with embryo screening and cryopreservation. As access to advanced reproductive technology increases against a sharper background of healthcare reform, clinicians, economists, bioethicists and legislators alike will find this new volume relevant and highly accessible.
