Steroid Hormone Receptors in Endocrine Physiology and Diseases covers the role of steroid hormones in human physiology and receptor activity in the pathophysiology of disease. The book discusses how these receptors can be used as therapeutic targets for the treatment of conditions from cancer to aging, offering immediate applications of biochemical principles into clinical applications such as diagnosis and treatment. This book is a valuable reference for graduate and postdoctoral scientists but is also ideal for medical students interested in the functional role of various steroid hormone receptors in a wide variety of endocrine related diseases.Steroid hormone receptors (SHRs) are known to play vital roles in normal physiology through the control of development, differentiation, metabolic homeostasis and reproduction. Due to their involvement in various pathological and disease conditions, SHRs are also important therapeutic targets in several disorders including inflammation, autoimmune diseases, hormone-dependent cancers, osteoporosis and cardiovascular diseases.
