Familial Mediterranean Fever Book Excerpt:

This book, written by very well known opinion leaders in the field, covers all aspects of familial Mediterranean fever, the most common monogenic autoinflammatory disease. The opening chapters explain the genetic basis of the disease and provide insights into the pathogenesis derived from recent experimental studies. A large part of the book is then devoted to a detailed description of the typical and atypical clinical presentations, the disease course, and potential complications in both pediatric and adult patients. Guidance is provided on the measurement of disease severity and the management of patients in daily practice. The advice regarding treatment is based on the best currently available evidence and attention is also paid to important emerging treatments. The book is part of Springer’s series Rare Diseases of the Immune System, which presents recently acquired knowledge on pathogenesis, diagnosis, and therapy with the aim of promoting a more holistic approach to these conditions. Monogenic autoinflammatory diseases are hereditary disorders that are caused by single-gene defects in innate immune regulatory pathways and are characterized by a clinical and biological inflammatory syndrome in which there is limited, if any, evidence of autoimmunity. Familial Mediterranean fever itself is due to a mutation in the MEFV gene, which codes for the protein pyrin; it is characterized by periodic fever and episodes of painful inflammation in the abdomen, chest, and joints. Familial Mediterranean Fever will be an invaluable source of up-to-date information for all practitioners involved in the care of patients with the disease.

Familial Mediterranean Fever FMF Book Excerpt:

Familial Mediterranean Fever (FMF) is one of the most common genetic diseases in the world with more than 500,000 patients. Most are concentrated in Turkey, Israel, Armenia and other countries in the Mediterranean basin, however due to population migration FMF patients have been identified virtually in every country around the globe. With the increasing awareness of FMF and other autoinflammatory diseases in a wider geography, information concerning new disease associations, genotype-phenotype relations, effect of environmental factors, new treatment modalities, and recent advances in the pathogenesis have been accumulated. After being diagnosed with the disease, a disease for life, patients are left with many questions regarding their disease. This book encompasses all possible aspects of the disease, symptoms, clinical and genetic diagnosis, treatment, complications as well as a personal point of view from the patient's side in coping with the disease. The book is detailed and comprehensive so that it could also be a great value for medical staff, physicians and nurses interested in learning more details about the disease. Provides answers by medical experts to critical real world questions Gives an overview and an update on FMF Shows that FMF is not restricted to Mediterranean countries, and the lack of diagnosis in other areas of the world is probably due to a lack of awareness of this fascinating disease Raises the awareness of physicians regarding this disease so that patients can obtain the correct diagnosis and receive the appropriate treatment

Amyloidosis Book Excerpt:

From a process that from the days of Vir chow and Rokitansky, primarily stimulated the relatively narrow interest of pathologists, amyloidosis has risen full-blown as one of the most important of disease complexes. Its presence dominat:es the lesions of Alzheimer's disease, a disease affecting an estimated 2. 5 million people in the U. S. A. and thereby closely rivaling stroke as the third most common cause of death. If, as it has been de scribed, Alzheimer's disease is the "Disease of the Century," then amy loidosis is the Disease Complex of the Ages. It affects in one or more of its manifestations every organ of the body, and is at least as old as the afflicted Egyptian mummies of the pyramids. With an increasing percentage of older individuals amyloid of the senior population becomes increasingly more frequent. The subjects covered in this Symposium range through almost every clinical medical specialty. From an average of one paper in each of the past three Symposiums, the explosive interest in cerebral amyloidosis has led to the presentation of 12 papers on this subject in the present volume. The genetically predisposed familial amyloidotic processes, such as the polyneuropathies and familial Mediterranean fever have also stimulated ex tensive and intriguing investigations which have revealed the striking effect of a single amino acid substitution in transforming a normal protein into. a lethal "amyloidogenic" one.
