|Lupus: Molecular and Cellular Pathogenesis (Contemporary Immunology)
Lowest new price: $158.27
Lowest used price: $26.29
List price: $269.00
Leading basic and clinical investigators from around the world summarize the most recent research on the molecular and cellular origins of lupus. Their cutting-edge articles review the mechanisms underlying abnormal immunity and introduce the powerful new concept that a disorder of multiple genes underlies the abnormal immune response, leading directly to the development of lupus. This pathophysiology is shown to involve a wide variety of cell types, including T cells, B cells, natural killer cells, macrophages/monocytes, and endothelial cells. Over time, the resulting long-term inflammation causes irreversible cell destruction and, ultimately, organ failure. Lupus: Molecular and Cellular Pathogenesis is a masterful new synthesis of all the new knowledge emerging today about lupus. Its new perspectives will sharpen the focus of research and ultimately lead to better and more effective treatment.

|Lumbar Spine Disorders: Current Concepts (v. 1)
Lowest new price: $67.96
Lowest used price: $28.85
List price: $78.00
Author: R. M. Aspden
This book draws together recent results and ideas from most of the leading UK researchers into back pain. The emphasis is on disorders of the lumbar spine, their pathogenesis, diagnosis and treatment. This is in contrast to most books on the spine which either concentrate on the normal spine or deal with a specialized approach such as surgery. By drawing together contributions from a wide range of clinical and scientific backgrounds, including alternative therapies such as osteopathy and chiropractic, the problem of low back pain is shown to be complex and multifactorial.
