Populations are aging and prevalence of chronic diseases, persisting for many years,is increasing. Chronic diseases such as CVD, T2DM and obesity have high prevalence and develop over the course of life due to a number of interrelated factors including genetic predisposition, nutrition and lifestyle. A computerized model focused on organizing knowledge related to genes, nutrition and three chronic diseases, CVD, T2DM and obesity has been developed for the Ontology-Based Personalized Risk Evaluation for Chronic Disease Project. This model facilitates to identify interrelationships between concepts. One method, called transductive neuro-fuzzy inference system with weighted data normalization (Song and Kasabov, 2007)has been used to evaluate personalized risk of chronic diseases. A framework to integrate the personalized model and the chronic disease ontology has been developed with the aim of providing support for further discovery through the integration of the ontological representation in order to build an expert system in genes of interest and relevant dietary components.

Neurotraumatic (stroke, spinal cord trauma, and traumatic head injury) and neurodegenerative diseases (Alzheimer disease, Parkinson disease, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, Huntington disease, and prion disease) are afflicting aging Americans with increasing frequency. These diseases result in acute, as well as gradual and progressive neurodegeneration, leading to brain dysfunction. Known risk factors for stroke and neurodegenerative diseases include increasing age, genetic polymorphisms, endocrine dysfunction, oxidative stress, neuroinflammation, excitotoxicity, infection, and exposure to neurotoxins. In contrast, spinal cord trauma and traumatic brain injury due to motorcycle and car accidents are major causes of death and disability among young people below the mid-thirties. Although molecular mechanisms involved in the pathogenesis of neurotraumatic and neurodegenerative diseases remain elusive, oxidative stress, excitotoxicity, inflammation, misfolding, aggregation, and accumulation of proteins, perturbed Ca2+ homeostasis, and apoptosis have been implicated as possible causes of neurodegeneration in the above neurological disorders. In 2005, the global prevalence of neurotraumatic and neurodegenerative diseases was estimated at 35 million, with more than seven million new cases occurring each year. It is calculated that the number of people affected with neurotraumatic and neurodegenerative diseases will double every 20 years, to 100 million by 2040, if a cure is not discovered. More than 60% of dementia cases are due to Alzheimer disease. Today, approximately six million individuals in the US suffer from Alzheimer disease alone, representing one in eight individuals over the age of 65-70. Neurochemical Aspects of Neurotraumatic and Neurodegenerative Diseases presents readers with a cutting edge and comprehensive overview of neurochemical aspects of neurotraumatic and neurodegenerative diseases and their potential therapeutic strategies in a manner that is useful not only to graduate students and teachers, but also to research scientists and clinicians. About the Author: Dr. Akhlaq A. Farooqui is a leader in the field of brain phospholipases, lipid mediators, glutamate neurotoxicity and neurological disorders. Dr. Farooqui has authored five monographs: Glycerophospholipids in Brain: Phospholipase A2 in Neurological Disorders (2007), Neurochemical Aspects of Excitotoxicity (2008), Metabolism and Functions of Bioactive Ether Lipids in Brain (2008), Hot Topics in Neural Membrane Lipidology (2009), and Beneficial Effects of Fish Oil on Human Brain (2009). All monographs are published by Springer. Dr. Farooqui has also edited two books: Biogenic Amines: Pharmacological, Neurochemical and Molecular Aspects in the CNS Nova Science Publishers, Hauppauge, N.Y (2010) and Molecular Aspects of Neurodegeneration and Neuroprotection, Bentham Science Publishers Ltd (2010).

The Downy Mildews - Genetics, Molecular Biology...
175,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Knowledge of downy mildew pathogens and diseases has increased significantly in taxonomy, phylogeny, genetics, molecular biology, host-parasite interactions, ecology, epidemiology and control. The opportunity to update comprehensively the major advances in these areas was created by the 2nd International Symposium on Downy Mildews held in July 2007 at Olomouc (Czech Republic). Keynote contributions from this meeting are published here in 14 chapters that provide the most authoritative and recent analysis of these biotrophic plant pathogens and their interactions with plants. It will be an invaluable resource to students and researchers in plant pathology, mycology, taxonomy, plant biology and crop protection.

Bacterial Fish Pathogens
252,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This completely updated fifth edition of Bacterial Fish Pathogens is a comprehensive discussion of the biological aspects of the bacteria which cause disease in farmed and wild fish. Since the 4th edition was published in 2007, there has been an upturn in the application of molecular approaches to taxonomy, diagnosis and vaccine development. New pathogens, e.g. Aeromonas schubertii, have been described. Also, there has been the emergence of diseases caused by bacteria which have not been cultured, and which have been equated with new taxa, i.e. ‘Candidatus’. Consideration is given to all the bacterial fish pathogens, including primary pathogens and opportunists.

Climate Change and Diseases
56,50 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Global climate change is a phenomenon that is now considered strongly associated with human activities. Atmospheric carbon dioxide levels, which have remained steady at 180-220 ppm for the past 420,000 years, are now close to 370 ppm and rising. Due to improvements in meteorology, we are now able to better understand long-term changes in climate. Such understanding might enable the prediction of where and when infectious disease outbreaks may occur. Infectious disease distribution involves many of the complex social and demographic factors. Meteorological factors that influence transmission intensity of infectious diseases include humidity, temperature and rainfall patterns. Breakdown in public health services have been mainly responsible for the recent resurgence of infectious diseases. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change noted in its 2007 report that climate change may contribute to expanding risk areas for infectious diseases such as dengue and may increase the burden of diarrhoeal diseases, putting more people at risk. We describe in this book the links between climate and health, future implications, and recommendations.

Seedling Diseases of Mango in Bangladesh
50,40 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Mango is a popular fruit having some special organoleptic features such as excellent flavor, pleasant aroma and taste. Healthy and disease free seedlings are of prime need and basic raw material for establishment of orchards and production of mango. But seedling diseases are one of the important problems in the tropics. Occurrence and prevalence of diseases of mango was studied at Dhaka and Manikgonj in Bangladesh in 2007. Altogether six diseases were recorded during the survey. The diseases, in order of prevalence (incidence and severity) were Anthracnose (51.14% and 37.39%), Alternaria leaf spot (47.14% and 32.55%), Powdery mildew (33.30% and 26.03%), Red rust (24.05% and 13.05%), Sooty mould (10.50% and 10.95%) and Bacterial leaf spot (9.75% and 10.12%). The highest prevalence of Anthracnose and Alternaria leaf spot was observed in October and lowest in January. The highest prevalence of Red rust and Powdery mildew was in the month of March, but the disease was observed in October. Report on Alternaria leaf spot first of its kind in mango seedling in the country. This book may be useful to plant patholoogists, student, teachers and any one inteested in this field.
