Marschall S. Runge, MD, PhD, Cam Patterson, MD, and a panel of 251 authoritative contributors-many of them world-renowned clinicians and researchers-have now updated and expanded the much-acclaimed first edition of Principles of Molecular Medicine to provide an integrated survey of the basic principles of internal medicine in the light of recent dramatic discoveries in molecular medicine and new technologies for the diagnosis and treatment of human disease. This second edition contains new sections on genetics, oncology, metabolic diseases, and infectious diseases, in addition to fully revised sections on neurology, cardiology, hematology, nephrology, endocrinology, dermatology, immunology, gastroenterology, pulmonary disease, musculoskeletal medicine, and psychiatry. Here, the reader will discover the latest findings about direct links between genetic mutations and diseases, genomic approaches to a variety of diseases, and stem cell populations that regenerate muscle, heart, and neural cell populations. Other advances elucidated include the roles of bone morphogenetic proteins in pulmonary hypertension, mutations involved in an array of cardiomyopathies, and new understanding of the biology of previously untreatable neurodegenerative diseases, such as Huntington's disease. For this edition, the authors have also focused on producing a tightly written text with more useful figures and tables and reduced references, so that the text is more immediately useful but not overwhelming as a reference book. A CD-ROM edition of the book (ISBN: 1-58829-929-5) is available separately.
Comprehensive and state-of-the-art, Principles of Molecular Medicine, Second Edition, offers practicing physicians, researchers, and residents an extraordinary summary of the rapidly emerging molecular mechanisms underlying disease and valuable insights into the nature and direction of future developments.
Winner of the Book of the Year Award from Doody's Health Science Book Review Journal
"The selection of topics, the ability of the contributors to present complex topics in a clear, concise manner, and the format should all contribute to making this book the standard text and reference in its field. It should be in the collection of every medical library and on the bookshelf of every physician interested in keeping up with the transformation of medicine by molecular genetics." 5 Stars-Doody's Health Science Book Review Journal.
"...bridge[s] the current gap between basic science and the bedside. It will thus be useful to researchers and clinicians alike. With more than 100 chapters covering a wide variety of topics, its distinguished cohort of section editors, and its abundant tables and illustrations, it provides an accessible and much needed manual to the present and the future of molecular genetics." -Francis S. Collins, MD, PhD
"...a first-class reference textbook. The format of this book is easy to follow and is relevant to the way in which medicine is currently practiced. Its division into the traditional disciplines of medicine makes it easy to identify how molecular developments have enhanced our medical knowledge, diagnostic potentials and therapeutic options...The editor-in-chief, his section editors and the contributing authors should all be congratulated on a superb job." -Molecular Medicine Today
"Because molecular medicine has already started to become an integral part of medical practice, there is a growing need to integrate it into the medical school curriculum and medical education in general. Principles of Molecular Medicine is well suited to serving this purpose. . .closing the gap between basic science and the bedside. The book is organized according to organ systems and comprises more than 120 chapters, each written by outstanding specialists. . .The various facets of human hereditary disorders, including genetic counseling and molecular diagnostic testing, are clearly and comprehensively presented. . .the book is well written and attractive. . .[and] is a valuable resource that will certainly appeal to clinicians, researchers, teachers, and students alike. It will also be of value to those involved in a particular area of molecular medicine who need a reference manual in which to find information on aspects of the field in which they are less familiar. . .a valuable reference for anyone with an interest in the achievements and the potential of molecular medicine." -Michael Gooses, MD review in the May 20, 1999 issue of the New England Journal of Medicine
"...succeeds in giving a remarkable, mostly up-to-date overview of molecular medicine such as has not been available between two covers hitherto." -New England Journal of Medicine
