Biomarkers in Inborn Errors of Metabolism Book Excerpt:

Biomarkers of Inborn Errors in Metabolism: Clinical Aspects and Laboratory Determination is structured around the new reality that laboratory testing and biomarkers are an integral part in the diagnosis and treatment of inherited metabolic diseases. The book covers currently used biomarkers as well as markers that are in development. Because biomarkers used in the initial diagnosis of disease may be different than the follow-up markers, the book also covers biomarkers used in both the prognosis and treatment of inherited metabolic disorders. With the introduction of expanded new-born screening for inborn metabolic diseases, an increasing numbers of laboratories are involved in follow-up confirmatory testing. The book provides guidance on laboratory test selection and interpreting results in patients with suspected inherited metabolic diseases. The book provides comprehensive guidance on patient diagnosis and follow-up through its illustrative material on metabolic pathways, genetics and pathogenesis, treatment and prognosis of inherited metabolic diseases, along with essential information on clinical presentation. Each chapter is organized with a uniform, easy-to-follow format: a brief description of the disorder and pathway; a description of treatment; biomarkers for diagnosis; biomarkers followed for treatment efficacy; biomarkers followed for disease progression; confounding conditions that can either: affect biomarker expression or mimic IEMs; other biomarkers: less established, future. Provides comprehensive information on the tests/biomarkers selection in newborn screening and follow-up of newborn screens Categorizes biomarkers into diagnostic markers, disease follow-up markers, and prognostic biomarkers Covers confounding factors that can alter biomarkers in the absence of inborn errors of metabolism Offers guidance on how to distinguish acquired causes from inborn errors of metabolism

Essentials for Practice of Medicine in the Frontline Book Excerpt:

Essentials for practice of medicine in the frontline is an abridged synthesis of selected topics from family medicine, internal medicine, pediatrics, obstetrics and gynecology, pathology, and psychiatry; also, ophthalmology, otorhinolaryngology, hematology, and dermatology. Each section covers ten salient and commonly-encountered areas of practice by physicians. Multiple-choice questions and answers accompany each Section. The setting of writing is a developing country. The contents are relevant to doctors who practice in the medically advanced countries and those in the developing countries. Medically, the world has become an interesting place. Air travel, frequent movement, and resettlement of people now mean that doctors in developed countries can no longer stay and practice within the clinical conditions that were typical in their practice settings. Things have changed, as they cannot be certain of what medical conditions that patients from various parts of the world will present to them. Doctors also cannot be unequivocal that an emergency in a distant part of the globe may not require their attention. This book therefore meets the needs of doctors, irrespective of their length of practice or where they practice. What applies to doctors certainly applies to medical students. This book is an atypical book as it puts in its two volumes of less than 500 pages of 8.5”x 11” per volume material that any doctor, anywhere, should keep on their office or consulting room bookshelf. The e-book version is also a veritable companion.

Nutrition Management of Inherited Metabolic Diseases Book Excerpt:

This text presents a compilation of topics that have been taught at Metabolic University (MU), an interactive, didactic educational program that has trained over 600 metabolic dietitians/nutritionists, physicians, nurses and genetic counselors. This book was created in 2014 for the metabolic community. The 1st edition contains only subject matter covered at Metabolic University; therefore, it is not a comprehensive treatise on Inherited Metabolic Disorders (IMD) but rather a text on the most frequently encountered challenges in IMD nutrition. Each chapter in the book highlights principles of nutrition management, how to initiate a diet, and biomarkers to monitor the diet. Recognizing that there are variations in practice, this book addresses that the key to management lies in the understanding how the inactivity of an enzyme in a metabolic pathway determines which components of the diet must be restricted and which must be supplemented as well as the monitoring of appropriate biomarkers to make diet adjustments and ensure the goals of therapy are met The 2nd edition is an updated and more extensive version covering the nutrition management of IMD, and covers a wide range of these disorders, including phenylketonuria and other aminoacidopathies, organic acidemias, urea cycle disorders, fatty acid oxidation disorders, galactosemia and glycogen storage diseases. Guidance is also provided on laboratory evaluations and biochemical testing and monitoring. Topics such as newborn screening for IMD, as well as nutrition management during pregnancy and transplantation, are also addressed. In addition, current medical management therapies is included.
