Friedman, E. A.; And Arnees, I. (Editors)
Increasingly, medicine in general and nephrology specifically is based on clinical trials and verifiable presumption. Still, however, much of everyday clinical practice is the consensus of pundits and experts unable to validate their suggestions beyond personal bias. In this unique volume, several core beliefs in renal medicine are examined and challenged. Starting as assignments for nephrology fellows, this book grew out of surprising 'revelations' indicating that 'the emperor has no clothes'. The book is suitable as a stimulus for provocative discussions for nephrologists, internists, house staff, and medical students. 74pp.

Sinha, Gayatri
K M Adimoolam's art resists easy categorisation. He brings to his work a genuine spirit of enquiry, and a continually rejuvenating wonder at the generative cosmic possibilities of art. He makes profoundly aesthetic choices, bringing to his abstract painting and apparently realistic drawing sheer, unambiguous artistic skills. Adimoolam is primarily optimistic; his paintings resonate with a pleasure in the sensuality of the medium of oil, its dexterity and movement, and its ability to translate emotion into colour. What all the works have in common is his preoccupation with presences and fields outside his immediate perception, and a graded move towards the ideal space of pure abstraction. This for Adimoolam is the vivid, magnetic other, the field of consciousness - energy or citsakti - one that is not personalised in any way, but which hints at the possibility of the deepest realisation. 104pp. N.B. Laminate to bottom edge of rear D/J slightly peeled.

Edited By Berg,P.A.
Ursodeoxycholic acid (UDCA) has been shown by many studies to be of benefit in the treatment of primary biliary cirrhosis (PBC) and also of primary sclerosing cholangitis (PSC) (and other cholestatic liver diseases), but the mechanism of action of this drug remains obscure and is, in all probability, of multifactorial nature. Possibly, complex interaction of immunomodulatory and membrane-stabilizing effects in conjunction with an altered composition of the bile acid pool are responsible for the beneficial effect. This book, the proceedings of 86th Falk Symposium "Bile Acids and Immunology" (Part 1 of the Basel Liver Week), held in Basel, Switzerland, October 17-18, 1995, starts with an update on important mechanisms involved in autoimmune mediated processes covering the presentation of antigens and autoantigens by professional and non-professional antigen presenting cells, the recognition of the MHC-antigen complex by T-cells, the role of natural and disease-specific antibodies, as well as the control of immune processes via TH1/TH2 cells and their cytokines. It then focuses on the recent findings concerning the aetiopathogenesis of PBC and PSC and the effect of UDCA therapy in these disorders. The most relevant questions which have to be answered in this field are: is the biochemical improvement the consequence of a true antiinflammatory or immunosuppressive effect of UDCA or only due to the replacement of hydrophobic by hydrophilic bile acids?; does UDCA increase the efficacy of immunosuppressive drugs and is it necessary to differentiate between patients who need either a mono-UDCA or a combined (UDCA/steroids) therapy?; are PBC and PSC true autoimmune disorders driven by an autoantigen or only "secondary autoimmune" processes induced by a persisting infectious agent, considering the poor response of both disorders to immunosuppressive treatment as compared to patients with autoimmune hepatitis? This book tries to clarify these problems and open new avenues for further research. It should be of interest to all clinicians and researchers in the field of bile acids. N.B.D/J spine slightly faded with slight mark to base of d/j spine.295pp.
