“Advancements in Modeling-Based Therapeutics and Technology for Chronic Diseases" explores the fundamental role played by animal and cellular models in unravelling the complexities of chronic diseases and underlying treatments. These models serve as crucial tools for scrutinizing the complicated molecular and cellular mechanisms underlying such diseases, conducting preclinical evaluations of pharmaceutical compounds, and probing into the genetic components contributing to disease pathogenesis and are the foundation of innovative therapeutic approaches for optimizing patient care in the treatment of chronic diseases. The book explores critical chronic diseases, providing insights into their complexities, causes, and potential therapeutic approaches. Content is organized into three sections. The first section begins with an introductory exploration of the intricate interplay of factors contributing to chronic illness burden then goes on to compare animal models, precision medicine and personalized drug design approaches, and advancements in biomarker discovery and validation used in targeted therapies. Further, this section intricately examines cellular and immunotherapy modelling as well as the role of transnational models for the management of chronic diseases. Various technological innovations in chronic diseases management are reviewed in the second section, including gene editing techniques in chronic disease treatment, image technologies for modelling and monitoring, computational tools and methods, as well as integrated systems biology approaches in chronic disease research. The book’s final section is devoted to discussing ethical and regulatory considerations, dilemmas and obstacles, with special focus on addressing data privacy concerns. In summary, this valuable resource offers a combination of current advances, practical insights, and treatment strategies, enabling scientists and researchers working in the field of modeling-based therapeutics for chronic diseases to stay abreast of novel developments and drive future direction in healthcare.

Cancer, Inflammation and Immunity examines cancer development as a multi-step process involving malignancy, failing immunosurveillance and elevated immunosuppression. Capturing the complexity of the disease, it discusses contributing lifestyle and environmental factors, as well as the effectiveness of various treatments that aim to reinstate immunosurveillance. Featuring approximately 150 articles from world leading scholars, this interdisciplinary resource discusses cancer within an immunology context. Beginning with how tumors develop and metastasis occurs, it goes on to explain metabolic re-programming and other immuno-oncological events. It focusses on treatment strategies including the induction of tumor immunogenicity, the reprogramming of immune effectors and antigen presenting cells as well as the modulation of the tumor microenvironment. Successful combinatorial therapeutic approaches that address the malignancy at the level of the tumor and at the immune system are also discussed. This state-of-the art resource combines the fields of cancer, immunology and clinical immuno-oncology, and provides an extensive understanding of the disease to students, practicing clinicians and oncology researchers.

"Pathophysiological Consequences of Alcohol" presents how alcohol impacts physiological processes in organ systems. Relevant organ system physiology will first be presented as an overview, followed by up to date, evidenced-based findings related to how alcohol use either acutely or chronically impacts these processes. Each chapter, with the exception of the Introduction and Cellular and Molecular Physiology, begins with an overview of the physiology of the system, followed by the salient findings on alcohol's impact on that system, and ends with with an integrative case or clinical vignette. Written for those working and studying physiology, biology or neuroscience, by a team of experts involved in the study of how alcohol use contributes to risk for comorbidities, based in a leading Physiology Department, and heavily engaged in teaching of the discipline.

Clinical research is the tip of the spear for innovation and central in the development of improving safety and efficacy for patient centric care. Unfortunately, clinical research in academic practices is bogged down by inefficiency and infrequent regulatory oversight, thus leaving physicians unable to meet the clinical and research needs for driving innovation. Private practice is a valid practice cohort that can effectively, reliably, and reproducibly perform study related activities, for both FDA and non-FDA regulated studies, both industry-sponsored or investigator-initiated.Clinical Research in Private Practice fills a gap and provides a playbook for how to incorporate clinical research in a validated, safe, and compliant manner, allowing a needed meaningful contribution to the medical space, while concurrently maintaining fiduciary responsibility. Written for physicians by physicians.
