Early Development of the Adrenal Glands in the Grass Snake Natrix natrix L Lepidosauria Serpentes Book Excerpt:

The aim of this study was to investigate the development and diffferentiation of the adrenal glands in the grass snake during early stages of ontogenesis. After light microscopy and ultrastructural investigation, six developmental phases were distinguished in the grass snake adrenal glands. Similar developmental phases were described in pig embryos but they slightly differ from those presented above. In reptile and mammal embryos a similar direction of changes is observed in primaordia of both tissues forming adrenal glands.

Surgery of the Adrenal Gland Book Excerpt:

This book offers a comprehensive description of the main surgical treatments for adrenal tumors, encompassing both open surgery and laparoscopy. Introductory chapters cover surgical anatomy, pathology, the clinical diagnostic pathway, the role of different imaging techniques, and perioperative management. After discussion of general principles of adrenal surgery and instrumentation, individual surgical techniques are described in detail with the aid of step-by-step color photos and schematic drawings. For each procedure, careful attention is paid to indications and contraindications and to the most frequent complications. A further feature is the inclusion of numerous helpful decision-making algorithms for diagnosis and treatment. The text is structured according to the principles of "best practice" and the guidelines on evidence-based medicine and will thus be a valuable tool for practitioners in their clinical work.

ACTH Action in the Adrenal Cortex From Molecular Biology to Pathophysiology Book Excerpt:

By stimulating adrenal gland and corticosteroid synthesis, the adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) plays a central role in response to stress. In this Research Topic, a particular attention has been given to the recent developments on adrenocortical zonation; the growth-promoting activities of ACTH; the various steps involved in acute and chronic regulation of steroid secretion by ACTH, including the effect of ACTH on circadian rhythms of glucocorticoid secretion. The Research Topic also reviews progress and challenges surrounding the properties of ACTH binding to the MC2 receptor (MC2R), including the importance of melanocortin-2 receptor accessory protein (MRAP) in MC2R expression and function, the various intracellular signaling cascades, which involve not only protein kinase A, the key mediator of ACTH action, but also phosphatases, phosphodiesterases, ion channels and the cytoskeleton. The importance of the proteins involved in the cell detoxification is also considered, in particular the effect that ACTH has on protection against reactive oxygen species generated during steroidogenesis. The impact of the cellular microenvironment, including local production of ACTH is discussed, both as an important factor in the maintenance of homeostasis, but also in pathological situations, such as severe inflammation. Finally, the Research Topic reviews the role that the pituitary-adrenal axis may have in the development of metabolic disorders. In addition to mutations or alterations of expression of genes encoding components of the steroidogenesis and signaling pathways, chronic stress and sleep disturbance are both associated with hyperactivity of the adrenal gland. A resulting effect is increased glucocorticoid secretion inducing food intake and weight gain, which, in turn, leads to insulin and leptin resistance. These aspects are described in detail in this Research Topic by key investigators in the field. Many of the aspects addressed in this Research Topic still represent a stimulus for future studies, their outcome aimed at providing evidence of the central position occupied by the adrenal cortex in many metabolic functions when its homeostasis is disrupted. An in-depth investigation of the mechanisms underlying these pathways will be invaluable in developing new therapeutic tools and strategies.

Adrenal Cortex From Physiology to Disease Book Excerpt:

The adrenal gland plays essential roles in the control of body homeostasis, stress and immune responses. The adrenal cortex represents up to 90% of the gland and is specialised in the production of mineralocorticoids, glucocorticoids and adrenal androgens. This production is tightly coordinated and results from a unique zonal organisation. Although our knowledge of the molecular mechanisms controlling adrenal steroidogenesis is quite extensive, for decades, the mechanisms of adrenal cortex development, cellular homeostasis and renewal have remained elusive. The advent of new high-throughput technologies and sophisticated genetic approaches has brought tremendous progress in our understanding of how the adrenal cortex achieves and maintains its particular organisation. The aim of this Frontiers in Endocrinology Topic is to provide readers with a snapshot of our current knowledge on adrenal physiology and how deregulations of these processes result in adrenal diseases. This includes but is not limited to, basic research on adrenal development, cell lineage identification, progenitor cells, tissue renewal, control of differentiation and zonation and clinical research on the identification of disease-related genes.

Adrenal Cortex Book Excerpt:

Adrenal Cortex presents a critical review of functional and structural zonation of the cortex. It discusses the regulation of adrenocortical function by control of growth and structure. It also addresses the adrenal cortex in the fetus and neonate. It demonstrates the cellular mechanisms involved in the acute and chronic actions of ACTH. Some of the topics covered in the book are the molecular structures of mineralocorticoid and glucocorticoid receptors; description of adrenarche and adrenal hirsutism; types of congenital enzymatic defects of the adrenal; aetiology and management of Cushing’s syndrome; and the relationship between adrenal cortex and hypertension. The description and characteristics of adrenocortical dysfunction are fully covered. The interactions between the adrenal cortex and medulla are extensively discussed. An in-depth analysis of the pharmacokinetics of natural and synthetic glucocorticoids is provided. A study of the regulation of normal steroidogenesis by adrenocortical structure is well presented. A chapter is devoted to possible role of vascular system in neural stimulations. The book can provide useful information to neurologists, doctors, students, and researchers.

Health Is Simple Disease Is Complicated Book Excerpt:

***WINNER, 2009 Living Now Book Award, Gold Metal In this breakthrough book, Dr. James Forleo proposes a return to the body as the site of self-healing. The problem, he says, is that we don’t understand the language of signs and symptoms it uses to communicate its healing messages. Health Is Simple helps readers decipher that language and access the great realms of health and vitality the body contains. Written in a clear, engaging style, the book takes a systems approach to health, walking readers through the basic design and function of each major organ system—the nerve, endocrine, immune, musculo-skeletal, cardiovascular, respiratory, digestive, and elimination systems—and offers a set of simple practices to boost their performance. With only a few minutes a day, readers can radically improve their health and well-being. Based on his work with hundreds of patients, the program emphasizes simple correctives to diet and lifestyle, a new perspective on digestion and elimination, and the alignment of the spine and structural system. Case studies demonstrate successfully resolved conditions from chronic headaches, anxiety, and respiratory disorders to exhaustion, autoimmune disorders, and allergies. Health Is Simple offers readers access to the same customized program the author’s celebrity clients have enjoyed, with the possibility of achieving the same spectacular results.
