Book Description

ISBN-10: 1840761342 | ISBN-13: 978-1840761344 | Publication Date: November 1, 2011 | Edition: 1
The past 40 years have seen remarkable advances in pediatric neurology and in many interfacing disciplines, especially medical imaging, genetics and infectious diseases. Yet the fundamentals of neurological examination and history remain essential in the accurate diagnosis of conditions affecting the child’s nervous system. This book begins with a detailed discussion of neurological examination techniques. It covers the basic formulation of differential diagnoses and management using neuroradiology, electrophysiology, genetic and metabolic testing, including sampling cerebrospinal fluids, which is essential in the diagnosis and management of infectious conditions. This second section follows a problem-based approach that takes into account how diseases present in the real world. It employs practical, symptom- and sign-based strategies for virtually all conditions encountered by the practitioner. Throughout the authors emphasize patterns of disease and how recognizing them can be the first step to successful management of a child with a neurological problem. The text concludes with a detailed discussion of neurological emergencies, keeping in mind that such conditions often present first to someone other than to a pediatric neurologist. The book will be of interest to pediatric neurologists, pediatricians, primary care physicians, and emergency physicians in training and practice. Read More….

  • Low glycemic diet does not improve risk factors for cardiovascular disease and diabetes

    Nutrition experts are continually debating the nutritional value of carbohydrate-containing foods and whether some are healthier than others.

In new findings led by researchers at Brigham and Women's Hospital (BWH) in Boston and Johns Hopkins University (JHU) in Baltimore, researchers looked at
  • New targeted drugs could treat drug-resistant skin cancer

    A brand new family of cancer drugs designed to block several key cancer-causing proteins at once could potentially treat incurable skin cancers, a major new study reports. Clinical trials to test the new drugs in patients should begin as early as 2015. Existing drugs target faulty versions of a protein called BRAF which drives about half of all melanomas, but while initially very effective, the cancers almost always become resistant to treatment within a year.
  • Injectable 3D vaccines could fight cancer and infectious diseases

    One of the reasons cancer is so deadly is that it can evade attack from the body's immune system, which allows tumors to flourish and spread. Scientists can try to induce the immune system, known as immunotherapy, to go into attack mode to fight cancer and to build long lasting immune resistance to cancer cells. Now, researchers at the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering at Harvard University and Harvard's School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) show a non-surgical injection of programmable biomaterial that spontaneously assembles in vivo into a 3D structure could fight and even help prevent cancer and also infectious disease such as HIV.
