In Molecular and Cellular Pediatric Endocrinology, Stuart Handwerger, MD and a distinguished panel of clinicians and experts review the most significant recent developments in molecular and cellular biology, powerful advances that have produced new diagnostic methods and improved treatments for many pediatric endocrine diseases. Topics range from the growth hormone/prolactin/placental lactogen gene family and their regulation of growth, to steroid hormones, sexual development, and mineral corticoid action. Additional chapters examine the pathophysiology of insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus, the molecular genetics of thyroid cancer, the molecular basis of hypophosphatemic rickets, and inherited diabetes insipidus.
Molecular and Cellular Pediatric Endocrinology offers today's clinicians and researchers not only the latest findings on endocrine disorders in their pediatric manifestations, but also highly practical insights into today's cutting-edge diagnostics, emerging treatment strategies, and powerful new therapeutics.
