Abstract
The Atlas of Genitourinary Oncological Imaging presents a comprehensive visual review of appearances for normal anatomy and oncological diseases in the genitourinary system using over 900 radiological images and illustrations. The book presents current imaging techniques and discusses the role of imaging in pre-treatment staging and post-treatment follow-up. Diseases discussed include kidney, adrenal gland, upper tract, bladder, prostate, testes, and pediatric malignancies. Individual chapters include normal anatomy, imaging techniques, and pathology of each cancer type. The staging of the malignancy and what to include in the radiology report are discussed, and expected and complicated postoperative and post-treatment findings and recurrence are presented. Dedicated chapters on interventional and radiation therapy discuss their unique role in the management and treatment of oncology of the genitourinary system. Additionally, a chapter on chemotherapy toxicities discusses drug reaction treatment therapies unique to the genitourinary system. Edited and written by radiologists from the genitourinary disease management team at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, the Atlas of Genitourinary Oncological Imaging is an ideal resource for radiology and urology trainees seeking a review of the basics and for practicing radiologists looking for answers to challenging cases confronted in daily practice.

Abstract
Readers of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder Handbook: A Physician's Guide to ADHD, second edition will find a concise and scholarly work covering the most recent advances in causes and management of ADHD. The book provides answers to the numerous questions that surround ADHD, such as: How is ADHD diagnosed? What causes ADHD? What are the risks of associated learning and behavior disorders, tics, seizures, and headaches? What treatments are available? What are the choices of medications and the risks of side effects? Do children outgrow ADHD? Author, J. Gordon Millichap, M.D., F.R.C.P., is a pediatric neurologist with more than 40 years experience in treating children, adolescents, and young adults with ADHD and related medical disorders (tics, Tourette syndrome, headache, seizures, learning disorders, dyslexia). Dr. Millichap has done research studies on medications and dietary therapies for ADHD, and advises on the pros and cons of medications vs. alternative therapies. He has experience with the long-term effects of medications, their side effects, and ways to minimize risks. Dr. Millichap is the Director of the Attention Deficit Disorder Clinic, Division of Neurology, at Children's Memorial Hospital, and Professor Emeritus at Northwestern University Medical School, Chicago, Illinois. His vast clinical and research experience coalesce in A Physician's Guide to ADHD, a comprehensive and clinically useful guide for any medical professional treating patients with ADHD.

Abstract
This book is devoted to innovative medicine, comprising the proceedings of the Uehara Memorial Foundation Symposium 2014. It remains extremely rare for the findings of basic research to be developed into clinical applications, and it takes a long time for the process to be achieved. The task of advancing the development of basic research into clinical reality lies with translational science, yet the field seems to struggle to find a way to move forward. To create innovative medical technology, many steps need to be taken: development and analysis of optimal animal models of human diseases, elucidation of genomic and epidemiological data, and establishment of “proof of concept”. There is also considerable demand for progress in drug research, new surgical procedures, and new clinical devices and equipment. While the original research target may be rare diseases, it is also important to apply those findings more broadly to common diseases. The book covers a wide range of topics and is organized into three complementary parts. The first part is basic research for innovative medicine, the second is translational research for innovative medicine, and the third is new technology for innovative medicine. This book helps to understand innovative medicine and to make progress in its realization.

Abstract
This open access book describes marked advances in imaging technology that have enabled the visualization of phenomena in ways formerly believed to be completely impossible. These technologies have made major contributions to the elucidation of the pathology of diseases as well as to their diagnosis and therapy. The volume presents various studies from molecular imaging to clinical imaging. It also focuses on innovative, creative, advanced research that gives full play to imaging technology in the broad sense, while exploring cross-disciplinary areas in which individual research fields interact and pursuing the development of new techniques where they fuse together. The book is separated into three parts, the first of which addresses the topic of visualizing and controlling molecules for life. Th e second part is devoted to imaging of disease mechanisms, while the final part comprises studies on the application of imaging technologies to diagnosis and therapy. The book contains the proceedings of the 12th Uehara International Symposium 2017, “Make Life Visible” sponsored by the Uehara Memorial Foundation and held from June 12 to 14, 2017. It is written by leading scientists in the field and is an open access publication under a CC BY 4.0 license.

Research into the paraoxonase (PON) multigene family has really only blossomed in the last 10 years. Before this time only PON1 was known and research was restricted to toxicologists investigating the metabolism of organophosphate insecticides and nerve gases and a few "mad" scientists searching for "natural" substrates. Since this time two new members PON2 and PON3 have been discovered, all 3 PONs have been shown to act as antioxidants and the PON family has taken centre stage as major players…

Abstract
Research into the paraoxonase (PON) multigene family has really only blossomed in the last 10 years. Before this time only PON1 was known and research was restricted to toxicologists investigating the metabolism of organophosphate insecticides and nerve gases and a few "mad" scientists searching for "natural" substrates. Since this time two new members PON2 and PON3 have been discovered, all 3 PONs have been shown to act as antioxidants and the PON family has taken centre stage as major players in the development of a wide variety of diseases such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes mellitus, rheumatism, Alzheimer and many more while remaining important in determining organophosphate toxicity. In September 2006 the 2nd International Conference on Paraoxonases took place in Hajdúszoboszló, Hungary, bringing together the world's foremost experts in the field. The current book is a distillation of the plenary lectures which took place at the meeting, resulting in a comprehensive up to date, state of the art review of current paraoxonase research.
Contents
Part 1. The Bert La Du Memorial Lecture -- Paraoxonases: An Historical Perspective -- Part 2. PONs and Atherosclerosis -- Glucose Inactivates Paraoxonase 1 (PON1) and Displaces it from High Density Lipoprotein (HDL) to a Free PON1 Form -- Paraoxonase-1 and Cardiovascular Disease -- Oxidative Stress & Antioxidants and PON1 in Health and Disease -- D-4F Increases Paraoxonase 1 Activity in HDL -- Paraoxonase 1 (PON1), A Junction Between the Metabolisms of Homocysteine and Lipids -- The Role of PON2 and PON3 in Atherosclerosis and Related Traits -- Paraoxonase 1 and Postprandial Lipemia -- PON1 Genotypes and Coronary Heart Disease -- Part 3. PON1 Structure -- Human Paraoxonase I: A Potential Bioscavenger of Organophosphorus Nerve Agents -- Stabilisation of Active Form of Natural Human PON1 Requires HPBP -- Part 4.
