Atlas of Myobacterium Tuberculosis / By A.A. Velayati and P. Farnia
Copyright 2017 Elsevier Inc.

Atlas of Mycobacterium Tuberculosis reveals in-depth information about mycobacterium tuberculosis which has never before been reported. Using atomic force microscopy (AFM), the in-depth phenotypic interaction that occurs in different stages of the tuberculosis lifecycle is illustrated, including resting, exponential, and dormant states.

Coverage also includes the macroscopic and microscopic anatomy of mycobacterium, including pigmentation, morphology of colonies, size and shape, and the phenotypic changes from susceptible to resistant, all shown with images from electronic and atomic force microscopes.

This book will open a new window into the results of molecular changes at the cellular level, guiding researchers and scientists to think in new ways about the area of cell wall and the reproductive and drug resistance phenomena surrounding tuberculosis.

  • Identifies the different stages and morphological aspects of mycobacterium tuberculosis with the use of new microscopy techniques

  • Includes never-before-seen photographs from the personal collection and scientific achievement of the authors

  • Outlines the nature of the lifecycle of mycobacterium tuberculosis in relation to adaptation in humans

Biostatistics and Computer-Based Analysis of Health Data Using Stata / By C. Lalanne and M. Mesbah
Copyright 2017 Elsevier Ltd.

This volume of the Biostatistics and Health Sciences Set focuses on statistics applied to clinical research. The use of Stata for data management and statistical modeling is illustrated using various examples. Many aspects of data processing and statistical analysis of cross-sectional and experimental medical data are covered, including regression models commonly found in medical statistics. This practical book is primarily intended for health researchers with basic knowledge of statistical methodology. Assuming basic concepts, the authors focus on the practice of biostatistical methods essential to clinical research, epidemiology and analysis of biomedical data (including comparison of two groups, analysis of categorical data, ANOVA, linear and logistic regression, and survival analysis). The use of examples from clinical trials and epideomological studies provide the basis for a series of practical exercises, which provide instruction and familiarize the reader with essential Stata packages and commands.
  • Provides detailed examples of the use of Stata for common biostatistical tasks in medical research
  • Features a work program structured around the four previous chapters and a series of practical exercises with commented corrections
  • Includes an appendix to help the reader familiarize themselves with additional packages and commands
  • Focuses on the practice of biostatistical methods that are essential to clinical research, epidemiology, and analysis of biomedical data

Faced with the exponential development of Big Data and both its legal and economic repercussions, we are still slightly in the dark concerning the use of digital information. In the perpetual balance between confidentiality and transparency, this data will lead us to call into question how we understand certain paradigms, such as the Hippocratic Oath in medicine. As a consequence, a reflection on the study of the risks associated with the ethical issues surrounding the design and manipulation of this “massive data” seems to be essential. This book provides a direction and ethical value to these significant volumes of data. It proposes an ethical analysis model and recommendations to better keep this data in check. This empirical and ethico-technical approach brings together the first aspects of a moral framework directed toward thought, conscience and the responsibility of citizens concerned by the use of data of a personal nature.
  • Defines Big Data applications in health 
  • Presents the ethical value of the medical datasphere via the description of a model of an ethical analysis of Big Data 
  • Provides the recommendations and steps necessary for successful management and governance of personal health data 
  • Helps readers determine what conditions are essential for the development of the study of Big Data

Biostatistics and Computer-based Analysis of Health Data using R Software / By C. Lalanne and M. Mesbah
Copyright 2016 ISTE Press Lts.

Biostatistics and Computer-Based Analysis of Health Data Using the R Software addresses the concept that many of the actions performed by statistical software comes back to the handling, manipulation, or even transformation of digital data.

It is therefore of primary importance to understand how statistical data is displayed and how it can be exploited by software such as R. In this book, the authors explore basic and variable commands, sample comparisons, analysis of variance, epidemiological studies, and censored data.

With proposed applications and examples of commands following each chapter, this book allows readers to apply advanced statistical concepts to their own data and software.

  • Features useful commands for describing a data table composed made up of quantitative and qualitative variables 
  • Includes measures of association encountered in epidemiological studies, odds ratio, relative risk, and prevalence 
  • Presents an analysis of censored data, the key main tests associated with the construction of a survival curve (log-rank test or Wilcoxon), and the Cox regression model

Early Nutrition and Long-Term Health: Mechanisms, Consequences, and Opportunities: A Volume in Woodhead Publishing Series in Food Science, Technology and Nutrition / Edited By J.M. Saavedra and A. Dattilo
Copyright 2017 Elsevier Ltd. 


The nutrition of an individual during gestation and the first two years of life—the first 1,000 days—sets the stage for lifelong health. Nutrition quality and quantity in this period can influence the risk of developing diseases that constitute today’s epidemics. Early-life nutrition can program the body’s tissues, organ structure and function, and metabolic and immunologic responses. These factors impact growth, development and cognition, and the risk of cardiovascular diseases, allergies and obesity. The first part of Early Nutrition and Long-Term Health examines the mechanisms by which early nutrition affects the risk of developing these conditions. The second part of this book reviews specific non-communicable diseases (NCDs) associated with early nutrition. The third part discusses the effects of nutritional programming from fetal life to toddlerhood. Prevention of over- or undernutrition in early life, rather than dietary, behavioral or therapeutic interventions in later life, is likely to have a greater return on society’s investment in coping with the modern epidemic of NCDs.

Examines the relation between early life nutrition and long-term health

Covers the mechanistic aspects of nutritional programming and its impact on risk of chronic non-communicable diseases

Reviews associations between infant and child diet and its effect on growth, development, cognition and later occurrence of cardiovascular diseases, allergies, metabolic conditions and obesity

Health Industrialization discusses the way healthcare professionals distinguish between medicine, surgery, and diet and lifestyle guidelines. In other words, the ways that medicine aims to provide quantity of life. 

Men and women would rather remain in good health as long as possible and compensate for the deficiencies that crop up to the best of their abilities. Hence, they are looking for quality of life that results in tensions brought on by different objectives. This book hypothesizes that this tension is the cause of an industrialization of medicine or health that depends to a degree on the point-of-view we choose.

  • Offers the key to understanding how this new form of industry will spread to create real change in the field of patient care 
  • Explores ethical issues and analyzes the various technologies at work in this transformation
