Frozen Shoulder: Present and Future provides insights into one of the most mysterious diseases of the human body, frozen shoulder, a condition characterized by severe shoulder pain and functional restriction of shoulder motion. About 4% of the general population develops a frozen shoulder, with numbers rising to 59% in patients with diabetes mellitus. It curiously only develops between the age of 40 and 60 years, affects more women than men, and seems to be more common in patients with sedentary jobs. Disease duration varies between 1 and 3 years and consequently has a large impact on health and economic well-being.

New Insights, Trends and Challenges in the Development and Applications of Microbial Inoculants in Agriculture provides information about how to develop high-quality microbial inoculants (biofertilizers and biopesticides) for increasing crop yields and quality and reducing the economic, environmental and health costs of food production. The book's chapters discuss cutting-edge approaches and techniques to develop bioformulations as reliable, viable solutions for food production, including the importance of a legal framework to guarantee the quality and safety of these bio-products. Additionally, it provides information on the current limitations and future approaches to enhance microbial inoculant development for contributing to global food security. Interest in biofertilizers and the potential for their use in sustainable agriculture is increasing. However, many commercial bioproducts are low quality due to the lack of quality standards which causes a decrease in efficiency, high variability in the field, and loss of confidence from farmers.
