Hughes Syndrome: Antiphospholipid Syndrome

Buy
The studies and discussions presented in the second edition of the Hughes Syndrome text had their beginning with a 1983 British Medical Journal publication entitled “Thrombosis, abortion, cerebral disease and the lupus anticoagulant.” In the mid-20th-century, it was recognized that some patients with systemic lupus erythematosus had biological false positive serological tests for syphilis, often coincident with the presence of an anticoagulant in plasma and the some of these patients (particularly ones with somewhat atypical of patterns of lupus) paradoxically manifested an increased incidence of procoagulant complications. Nothing much was made of these associations, however, until Graham Hughes, author of the above citation, applied his talents of astute bedside observation, knowledge of disease mechanisms, imagination, and a “bloodhound” instinct for following relevant clues. Graham and his colleagues early-on documented vasculopathy as basis for the diffuse (variable) pathology characteristic of the syndrome; evidence that procoagulant features were mediated by antiphospholipid autoantibodies (aPL) followed. Over the past two decades, investigators around the world have turned their attention to the study of the Hughes syndrome. (Contributors to this text include 83 clinicians and/or scientists from 13 countries in Europe, the Americas, Near East, and Asia. They represent more than a dozen clinical subspecialties and several basic science disciplines; professionals and students in these fields will need access to this book, whether in institutional libraries or personal collections – good news for the publisher.)

RF and Microwave Circuits, Measurements, and Modeling (The RF and Microwave Handbook, Second Edition)

The first edition of the RF and Microwave Handbook was published in 2000. The project got off to an inauspicious start when 24 inches of snow fell in Denver the evening before the advisory board planned to hold their kick-off meeting. Two members of the board were trapped for days in the Denver airport since planes were not arriving or...

Semantic-Based Visual Information Retrieval
Semantic-Based Visual Information Retrieval
Content-based visual information retrieval (CBVIR) is one of the most interesting research topics in the last years for the image and video community. With the progress of electronic equipment and computer techniques for visual information capturing and processing, a huge number of image and video records have been collected. Visual information...
Turing (A Novel about Computation)
Turing (A Novel about Computation)
Our hero is Turing, an interactive tutoring program and namesake (or virtual emanation?) of Alan Turing, World War II code breaker and father of computer science. In this unusual novel, Turing's idiosyncratic version of intellectual history from a computational point of view unfolds in tandem with the story of a love affair involving Ethel, a...
