Chronic Complications of Diabetes Mellitus: Current Outlook and Novel Pathophysiological Insights provides a holistic view of the disease, discussing not only its classical complications but also the under recognized and managed conditions associated with diabetes. Chapters also discuss advances in our understanding of the genomic architecture of diabetes complications and how precision medicine can be used to personalize their management. Endocrinologists, diabetologists, primary care physicians and researchers interested in complications of diabetes mellitus and cutting-edge information will find this to be a comprehensive tome on the topic. Diabetes complications include pathological changes usually related to the vascular system and classical target organs. However, there are also nonclassical complications independent or partially independent from vascular damage that are often overlooked.

Many plant-derived bioactive compounds are the foundation for drugs or effective drugs to cure diseases. Usually, the bioactive compounds in plant biomass are low, and the extraction of bioactive compounds from plants is not eco-friendly, which limits their application in drugs and other industries. While the biosynthesis of some complex bioactive compounds is possible, the scale-up and chemical process technology still needs further application in commercial production of the plant-derived bioactive compounds.Scale-up and Chemical Process for Microbial Production of Plant-Derived Bioactive Compounds: From Laboratory to Industry summarizes recent commercial microbial production strategies for plant-derived bioactive compounds. This comprehensive summary will be of great interest to scientists and researchers, as well as engineers who work on the microbial production of plant-derived bioactive compounds in the industry.
