Description : This edition has been completely reorganized along phylogenetic lines to reflect the current state of prokaryotic taxonomy but still maintains the familiar layout of the first edition.
Description : The science of transfusion and transplantation demands a multifaceted understanding of immunology, haematology, and genetics from the biomedical scientist. Transfusion and Transplantation Science coherently synthesises the essential concepts of these subjects and presents them within the practical framework of the hospital banking and transplantation centre, thereby furnishing the reader with the knowledge and skills required to specialize in thisdiscipline. Beginning with an overview of potential immune responses to transfusion and transplantation, the text goes on to explain the aetiology behind these responses with a view tothe prediction, diagnosis, and mitigation of adverse effects on the patient. It then outlines issues of quality, but also regulatory and legal concerns, that need to be considered when collecting, preparing, and storing products for transfusion or transplantation.
Description : Dr Alagarsamy's Textbook of Medicinal Chemistry is a much-awaited masterpiece in its arena. Targeted mainly to B. Pharm. students, this book will also be useful for M. Pharm. as well as M. Sc. organic chemistry and pharmaceutical chemistry students. It aims at eliminating the inadequacies in teaching and learning of medicinal chemistry by providing enormous information on all the topics in medicinal chemistry of synthetic drugs. Salient Features Contains clear classification, synthetic schemes, mode of action, metabolism, assay, pharmacological uses with the dose and structure–activity relationship (SAR) of the following classes of drugs: Drugs acting on inflammation Drugs acting on respiratory system Drugs acting on digestive system Drugs acting on blood and blood-forming organs Drugs acting on endocrine system Contains a complete section on chemotherapy and the various classes of chemotherapeutic agents. Also includes recent topics like anti-HIV agents Contains brief introduction about the physiological and pathophysiological conditions of diseases and their treatment under each topic Provides well-illustrated synthetic schemes and alternative synthetic routes for majority of drugs that help in quick and enhanced understanding of the subject Covers the syllabi of majority of Indian universities

Description : Histopathology describes the processes and practices that are central to the role of the histopathologist within a functioning diagnostic laboratory, from pre-sampling to diagnosis to laboratory management.
Description : Medical Microbiology examines microbiology from the viewpoint of the biomedical scientist based in a microbiology laboratory. It explains the basis of key laboratory techniques as applied to medical microbiology - including bacteriology, mycology, and virology - how and why they work, and what they can tell us.
Description : V. 1. The colonial book in the Atlantic world: This book carries the interrelated stories of publishing, writing, and reading from the beginning of the colonial period in America up to 1790. v. 2 An Extensive Republic: This volume documents the development of a distinctive culture of print in the new American republic. v. 3. The industrial book 1840-1880: This volume covers the creation, distribution, and uses of print and books in the mid-nineteenth century, when a truly national book trade emerged. v. 4. Print in Motion: In a period characterized by expanding markets, national consolidation, and social upheaval, print culture picked up momentum as the nineteenth century turned into the twentieth. v. 5. The Enduring Book: This volume addresses the economic, social, and cultural shifts affecting print culture from Word War II to the present.
Description : This book is a lucid, straightforward introduction to the concepts and techniques of statistical physics that students of biology, biochemistry, and biophysics must know. It provides a sound basis for understanding random motions of molecules, subcellular particles, or cells, or of processes that depend on such motion or are markedly affected by it. Readers do not need to understand thermodynamics in order to acquire a knowledge of the physics involved in diffusion, sedimentation, electrophoresis, chromatography, and cell motility--subjects that become lively and immediate when the author discusses them in terms of random walks of individual particles.
