Abstract
This book explains the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as an institution and provides understanding of its nomenclature, societal role, policies, goals and challenges. While many readers will have some knowledge of the FDA, few have an appreciation of the many specific areas of FDA authority. For example, how many realize that the US is one of only two countries which allow direct-to-consumer drug advertising, which is regulated by FDA? Or that FDA itself advertises to try to prevent young people from smoking cigarettes, and that all proprietary drug names must be approved by FDA? How many doctors or other readers are familiar with the formal definition distinguishing drugs from devices and the importance this has for development costs and for our knowledge about the ultimate products? How many know how much nutritional supplements are regulated by FDA? The FDA for Doctors is not for those looking for detailed instruction on dealing with the FDA or its operations. Rather, it is written by a doctor with doctors in mind, with the hope that the information in this book will make physicians, and other readers, more thoughtful and insightful, especially with regards to therapeutics and the many broad societal issues underlying FDA's activities. With over 40 years of experience as a clinical investigator in many trials done for FDA registration, the author has been a member of and chaired an FDA advisory committee, and has been a consultant to several divisions of the FDA. He has also had the opportunity to serve on the U.S. Senate Labor Committee, helping with its FDA oversight activities. In addition to a long academic medical career the author has been a consultant to and a full time employee of drug and device companies.

Antiphospholipid Syndrome
Abstract
Antiphospholipid Syndrome or Hughes Syndrome was the major medical discovery of the late 20th century; for many it is still deemed a new disease. As a result many people are now living with the disease with little knowledge of its causes, effects and available treatments. Many of these patients are also struggling to cope with the daily demands posed by living with such an illness. Understanding Hughes Syndrome: Case Studies for Patients, presents 50 case histories, each covered independently to give a comprehensive view of the vast spectrum that is Antiphospholipid Syndrome. Neurological aspects and effects are covered in approximately half the text, with the remainder covering everything from repeated miscarriages to easy bruising. The provision of personal accounts of Antiphospholipid Syndrome makes this book the ultimate companion to people living with the disease; giving not only the facts but also the personal touch that many people need when coming to terms, and dealing, with their condition. Understanding Hughes Syndrome: case studies for patients is written by Graham R.V. Hughes, MD, FRCP, a world-renowned expert in the field of rheumatology, and as the name suggests discoverer of Hughes or Antiphospholipid Syndrome. Hughes is also the Head of The London Lupus Centre, Founder and Editor of the international journal Lupus, and life president of the lupus patients charity Lupus UK.

Abstract
This book describes the causes and clinical management of functional gastrointestinal disorders in a readily understandable way, with the aid of many clear illustrations. The concrete and practical advice provided will be most helpful in the clinical practice of both the general practitioner and the medical specialist. Functional disorders of the gastrointestinal tract, such as gastroesophageal reflux disease, functional dyspepsia, and irritable bowel syndrome, are very common and chronic conditions. Despite the recent publication of many scientific papers on their diagnosis and treatment, much remains unclear, and management is still considered challenging. This practice-oriented book will be an ideal source of reliable up-to-date guidance for all who care for these patients.

Abstract
Gene expression studies have revealed diagnostic profiles and upregulation of specific pathways in many solid tumors. The explosion of new information in gene expression profiling could potentially lead to the development of tailored treatments in many solid tumors. In addition many studies are ongoing to validate these signatures also in predicting response to hormonal, chemotherapeutic and targeted agents in breast cancer as well as in other tumors. Diagnostic, Prognostic and Therapeutic Value of Gene Signatures provides readers a useful and comprehensive resource about the range of applications of microarray technology in oncological diseases. Topics covered include gene signatures and soft tissue sarcomas, prognostic relevance of breast cancer signatures, gene expression profiling of colorectal cancer and liver metastasis, gene signatures in GISTs, CNVs and gene expression profiles in pancreatic cancer, and gene signatures in head/neck, lung and gastric tumors. Diagnostic, Prognostic and Therapeutic Value of Gene Signatures will be of great value to residents and fellows, physicians, pathologists andá medical oncologists.

Abstract
This book serves as an introductory reference on clinical aspects of glaucoma and myopia, providing essential guidelines for diagnosis and monitoring of glaucoma progression in patients, especially those with high myopias. Many clinical studies are presented by leading experts in the field in an accessible style, making the content suitable not only for ophthalmologists but also for optometrists and certified orthoptists as well as for students. The relation between myopia and glaucoma has been the subject of many clinical trials and population-based studies. Most of the data has suggested that moderate to high myopia is associated with increased risk of primary open-angle glaucoma, normal tension glaucoma, and ocular hypertension. There are several factors involved in the diagnosis of glaucoma, but it is often difficult to determine the presence of glaucoma in myopic eyes. A myopic eye, especially in cases of moderate to high myopia, tends to have a thin retina and choroid and to appear thinner than normal. Even with new imaging technologies with improved sensitivity and specificity for detecting glaucoma, each technology presents some challenges when assessing myopic eyes. This book furnishes an overview of these diagnostic challenges with reference to the growing prevalence and severity of myopia in various parts of the world, providing many valuable hands-on reports and clinical studies by authoritative authors. This knowledge will help to do away with the vague area between high myopia and glaucoma faced by clinicians.

Abstract
This book highlights the remarkable advances that have contributed to the development of proteomics over the last two decades. While many of the concepts, methods, and technologies can be widely applied across fields of biomedical research, this book has been tailored for the cardiovascular researcher, with the many facets of cardiovascular disease reflected within the chapters. New methods and technologies are discussed in a manner that is understandable to scientists who are new to the proteomics arena in order to accelerate knowledge dissemination. The full measure of topics that define modern cardiovascular proteomics have been covered, including but not limited to experimental design, sample preparation and separation, mass spectrometry technologies, protein identification and quantitation, as well as statistical, pathway and network analyses of proteomics results. Manual of Cardiac Proteomics addresses many of the technical subtleties to be considered when embarking on a cardiovascular proteomic study. It as an invaluable guide for scientists entering the field, as well as clinicians and trainees in cardiology and all related disciplines.

Abstract
This book is distinctive in that it is a truly practical guide to use of the laparoscopic approach for the treatment of many abdominal diseases. Rather than simply offering a general description of surgical laparoscopic techniques, it provides the knowledge required in order to introduce basic laparoscopic procedures into daily practice or to commence advanced laparoscopic surgery. For each surgical procedure, key points are highlighted, the necessary equipment is described, and the operating room setup essential to avoid errors or loss of time is explained. Many flow charts, tables, and figures are included to assist fast and intuitive comprehension. The book will be of interest to all of the "actors" in the operating room, including especially surgeons in training, established surgeons, nurses, and anesthetists.

Abstract
This text contains the most relevant and up-to-date information on this fascinating and challenging disease. It summarizes current knowledge of infective endocarditis and presents clear recommendations about the best ways to diagnose and treat patients with suspected or confirmed cases of the disease. Although infective endocarditis is a cardiac disease that has long been recognised, it is ever-changing, with varying epidemiology, an increasing number of nosocomial cases, more atypical clinical presentations, new microorganisms, new diagnostic techniques, and a persistent, severe prognosis. Infective Endocarditis: Epidemiology, Diagnosis, Imaging, Therapy, and Prevention represents the consensus opinion of a team of international specialists on the diagnosis and treatment of infective endocarditis, many of whom have been co-authors of American or European guidelines on the topic. This is therefore a useful tool for many practitioners: cardiologists and cardiac imagers, cardiac surgeons, echocardiographers, and specialists in internal medicine, neurology, and infectious diseases.
