This book offers a reliable source of information on the latest advances and current trends in the medical and clinical sciences.
The focus is on certain fields that are of consistently high practical interest due to widespread disease morbidity, and on pathomechanisms that are not yet fully understood and their treatment. The topics covered include, but are not limited to, the search for novel biomarkers of colorectal cancer, morbidity and mortality after traumatic brain injuries, and impairment in brain-controlled muscle mechanisms after stroke. In addition, problematic issues in pulmonary medicine are discussed at length. These issues, notably, concern human studies that have set the standards for allergy, sensory irritation, and sensitization research, as well as studies on the management and treatment of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and obstructive sleep apnea. Lastly, the book addresses various aspects of commonplace viral respiratory infections, such as vulnerability and transmission in both pediatric and adult populations, flue vaccination coverage, and post-infectious respiratory complications.
The book’s goal is to promote the restoration and maintenance of good health, disease prophylaxis, and improved patient management by integrating research into clinical work and findings on improving care. It offers a valuable asset for clinical specialists, researchers, and everyone engaged in healthcare.
