Abstract
This book discusses recent advances in the area of cardiometabolic risk biomarkers of chronic inflammatory and cardiovascular disorders. Tackling the topic in a systematic manner, the book starts with an introduction to cardiometabolic risk and its clinical relevance, comparing emergent and classical biomarkers. It then goes on to discuss cardiometabolic risk biomarkers in a range of diseases, including diabetes, ischemic stroke and neurodegenerative disorders. Biomarkers of Cardiometabolic Risk, Inflammation and Disease is aimed at doctors specializing in internal medicine, neurology, cardiology, rheumatology, nephrology or endocrinology and will also be of interest to GPs, trainee doctors, and clinical and basic researchers working on cardiovascular and autoimmune disorders.

Abstract
A Clinician's Guide to Systemic Effects of Periodontal Diseases will serve as an ideal, easy-to-use reference for the practicing health professional. It summarizes the latest research on the systemic effects of periodontal diseases, discusses how the results of this research will impact on clinical practice, and aims to help the clinician to answer questions that may be posed by patients, medical colleagues, and the media. A central theme is the contribution of periodontal diseases to systemic inflammation but other mechanisms, such as systemic dissemination of oral pathogens, are also covered. The associations between periodontitis and a variety of conditions, including diabetes mellitus, atherosclerotic complications, chronic kidney disease, pulmonary infections, and Alzheimer's disease, are carefully documented. Importantly, a collaborative approach involving noted investigators in each field and medical colleagues ensures that all chapters are of clinical relevance from both a dental and a medical perspective. The book is also visually engaging, with numerous summary figures and graphics, bullet point tables, and highlight boxes identifying the most clinically significant points.
Contents

Abstract
Much attention has been drawn to the impact of the inflammatory response in cardiovascular surgery. Minimizing deleterious effects of cardiovascular surgery consists of understanding the pathogenesis of the inflammatory response and how to modulate it using medical strategies and especially specific operative approaches. Despite the attention on this response, the concept has been underestimated and overlooked, and scientific information on it is still lacking in the medical literature. Inflammatory Response in Cardiovascular Surgery includes the most recent and exciting topics regarding the relationship between inflammation and cardiovascular surgery. It provides comprehensive instruction to assist understanding of the inflammatory mechanisms involved and clarifies the basic immunologic and physiologic concepts. The book then includes discussion of the neuroendocrine response, pathogenesis of atherosclerosis and mechanisms of inflammation, while emphasizing the impact on surgery and pathologic aspects. As such this textbook will be vital reading for all involved in the management of cardiovascular surgical patients, such as cardiovascular and transplant surgeons, anesthesiologists, intensive care physicians, cardiovascular and vascular fellows, and researchers.

Abstract
In Vivo Models of Inflammation provides the biomedical researcher in both the pharmaceutical industry and academia with a description of the state of the art animal model systems used to emulate diseases with components of inflammation. This second edition acts as a complement to the first edition by describing and updating the standard models that are most utilized for specific disease areas. In addition, new models are included exploring emerging areas of inflammation research. The format is designed with the laboratory in mind: Both volumes provide detailed descriptions of the methodologies and uses of the most significant models. This includes current information regarding agents that demonstrate efficacy, those that do not and those that can be used as standard controls. The focus remains on those models that serve as pre-clinical correlates to human disease as well as those that represent components of the inflammatory response. Pioneering ideas and provocative comments about future directions are meant to challenge the status quo and stimulate new thinking. Therefore, new approaches to the development of future models in selected therapeutic areas have been highlighted. The focus on novel technologies that are vital for innovative in vivo research has been expanded to include chapters on the use of transgenic and gene transfer technologies, nanotechnology, and stem cells. This up-to-date reference manual helps to select the best animal model for a specific question. At the same time, this set of books continues to acknowledge the solemn responsibility in vivo research carries with it and extends the coverage of animal respect and welfare when used in experimental settings. Chapters describing current regulations in the United States, United Kingdom, and Japan address these concerns. Thus, the ultimate aim of this set of books is to provide current best practices for obtaining the maximum information from in vivo experimentation, while preserving the dignity and comfort of the animal.

Inflammation
Abstract
In Vivo Models of Inflammation provides the biomedical researcher in both the pharmaceutical industry and academia with a description of the state of the art animal model systems used to emulate diseases with components of inflammation. This second edition acts as a complement to the first edition by describing and updating the standard models that are most utilized for specific disease areas. In addition, new models are included exploring emerging areas of inflammation research. The format is designed with the laboratory in mind: Both volumes provide detailed descriptions of the methodologies and uses of the most significant models. This includes current information regarding agents that demonstrate efficacy, those that do not and those that can be used as standard controls. The focus remains on those models that serve as pre-clinical correlates to human disease as well as those that represent components of the inflammatory response. Pioneering ideas and provocative comments about future directions are meant to challenge the status quo and stimulate new thinking. Therefore, new approaches to the development of future models in selected therapeutic areas have been highlighted. The focus on novel technologies that are vital for innovative in vivo research has been expanded to include chapters on the use of transgenic and gene transfer technologies, nanotechnology, and stem cells. This up-to-date reference manual helps to select the best animal model for a specific question. At the same time, this set of books continues to acknowledge the solemn responsibility in vivo research carries with it and extends the coverage of animal respect and welfare when used in experimental settings. Chapters describing current regulations in the United States, United Kingdom, and Japan address these concerns. Thus, the ultimate aim of this set of books is to provide current best practices for obtaining the maximum information from in vivo experimentation, while preserving the dignity and comfort of the animal.

Abstract
In this second edition, the authors have expanded on this specialty by exploring medical advances accumulated in the last decade. They look closely at clinical presentations and how to arrive at a diagnosis, focusing on new treatments for juvenile idiopathic arthritis and advances in the field of autoinflammatory diseases, as well as new information on sarcoidosis, IgG4 disease and tumors involving the musculoskeletal system. Readers will find up-to-date management plans using tables, algorithms and figures to serve as useful visual aid within the chapters. Pediatric Rheumatology in Clinical Practice, 2nd Edition provides accessible information about conditions peculiar to young patients, to assist pediatricians, general practitioners as well as rheumatologists in the diagnosis and management of these diseases.
