Title: Scientific Foundations of Clinical Practice: Part I, an Issue of Pediatric Clinics: Pt. 1
Description: dark green, Saunders. 2006. (ISBN: 1416038965). Hardcover, 23.1 x 15.5 x 1.5 cm. Condition good, clean. In the last decade, the delineation of the human genome and the development of high throughput genomics and proteomics have transformed the practice of Pediatrics. The study of normal childhood growth and development, and pediatric diseases now focuses on the delineation of normal and abnormal gene expression, resultant cellular and organ responses, and the modification of such interactions by an increasing number of environmental factors. This is the first of two issues of the Pediatric Clinics of North America will provide an overview of the rapidly developing field of Pediatric Translational Medicine. New knowledge of basic molecular and developmental physiology and pathophysiology is rapidly being "translated" into new diagnostics and therapeutics for the practicing pediatrician. Rapid molecular diagnostics based on the identification of new disease genes, recognition of unique disease phenotypes at the cellular level, and the development of new therapeutic approaches based on pharmacogenomic profiling suggest that "individualized medicine" will soon be a possibility for every child. Used: Acceptable.
