Item description for Case Studies in Genes and Disease: A Primer for Clinicians (Diagnostic Tools) by Bryan Bergeron & Bryan Bergeron...

Progress in the field of genetics is moving faster and demonstrating accomplishments unlike ever before. Genes marking for specific diseases and methods in gene therapy are evolving rapidly and being incorporated into daily patient care. Ethical issues are under constant debate by politicians, journalists, and laymen. All health care providers need to stay informed on the research, the applicability to patient management, and the moral issues involved. Case Studies in Genes and Disease tackles all these issues for those who need it most: busy clinicians who daily see patients needing to know how advances in genetic research and therapy affect their health. Written for practitioners who are not geneticists, it does not presume an expert's familiarity with the subject. From fundamentals to specific diseases to "the dark side" of genetics, Case Studies in Genes and Disease will educate, intrigue, and astound you. Any strong structure needs a solid foundation. As more is learned about genetic causes of diseases, more can be done to manage and heal the patient. The building blocks provided in Case Studies in Genes and Disease are complex knowledge presented in a readable, clear, and easy-to-understand format. Utilizing case studies to elaborate and enlighten, the end result is this practical, current, and beautifully illustrated work on how the human genome works.
