When a grafted part fails to take, it is usually because of acute or chronic rejection, either for strictly immunological reasons or because of failure to properly follow the immunosuppressive therapy. There are other reasons for loss of a transplant however, notably when the disease that led to a kidney transplant returns after the operation, something that happens in 5 to 15% of cases. This book aims to: Review the current state of knowledge and methods of care; Suggest therapeutic consensus, especially in cases of nephrotic syndrome, by using specific post-transplant treatment or preventive measures; Connect up the various practices concerning choice of donors; Spell out more clearly the approach to take when a first transplant fails and another is envisaged; Sponsored by the Merieux Foundation and the work of leading international experts in the field, the book provides indispensable top-quality information.

Researchers are still identifying micro-organisms that cause new diseases in humans. A basic factor in the emergence of these diseases is the role played by animals, which act as a reservoir for certain viruses. In favourable conditions, such viruses can cross the species barrier and infect humans. The book takes a close look at two families of virus: orthomyxoviridae and paramyxoviridae, which have infected many species of vertebrates and are responsible for zoonosis. The two main parts of the book describe how the viruses operate, how they spread and the risk factors for humans. In addition to a specific and detailed study of these two micro-organisms, the book highlights the fascinating history of such diseases, their emergence, development and disappearance. They have occurred throughout human history, underscoring the role of the environment and the way it changes, often as a result of human intervention. Sponsored by the Merieux Foundation and written by leading international specialists, this book provides first-class information about these new viruses.

Organ transplantation has been successfully performed over the last 35 years and the number of organ allograft recipients is steadily increasing. Long-term immunosuppression, necessary for good graft function, inevitably induces undesired effects (particularly infectious and neoplastic ones) among which cutaneous ones are very frequent and potentially life-threatening. This book deals with all aspects of cutaneous disorders that may be encountered in the setting of organ transplantation. It reflects the pioneering work performed since long by Dermatologists in Lyon, in collaboration with teams specialised in kidney, heart, lung, liver and pancreas transplantation.

This work includes forewords by Sir Liam Donaldson and Peter Wheeler, Chief Medical Officer, Department of Health; Dean, College of Fine Arts, University of Sharjah, United Arab Emirates. Appreciating art can help doctors build empathy with patients and reduce stress. By stimulating thought and reflection through paintings, this concise and engaging text invites readers to examine their motivation, their profession and their world. This exciting new book provides vital refreshment for doctors and medical students, lecturers and tutors in medical humanities, and healthcare professionals with mentoring roles. "John and Erica Middleton guide the reader gently along the interface between art and medicine, in their own inimitable style. Whether in search of an introduction to the world of art, or wishing to consider the role that the formal study of art might play in professional development, reading this book is likely to prove rewarding. Turning these pages will help doctors to appreciate afresh the window through which they look upon the world" - Sir Liam Donaldson, in his Foreword. "Great art provides insights into the human condition. If through a systematic engagement with art and literature as an extension of their medical practice, GPs can apply those insights to themselves (know thyself), they can equally apply them when dealing with patients. Doctors and patients are people, subjects. Intersubjectivity is perhaps a better word than empathy to define what this book seeks to promote, the capacity of the doctor to enter into and inhabit the patient's subjectivity" - Peter Wheeler, in his Foreword.

During the past five years, evidence based medicine has become the sine qua non of clinical practice. Thus, the rise of evidence-based medicine has re-emphasised the need for high quality evidence that management interventions will actually benefit our patients. The authors have tried to explore some of these areas in the European Association of Gastroenterology and Endoscopy Postgraduate Course held in Birmingham, October 1997.

A breakthrough in health care for employees and employers alike, HSAs stand for Health Savings Accounts. As of Januar y 1, 2004, HSAs are a new option, similar to an IRA, offering individuals a tax-sheltered way to accumulate savings. Tax-free dollars in HSAs may be withdrawn for qualified medical expenses, rolled over without penalty for spending in future years, or invested, to accumulate savings to pay for health needs after retirement. As 73% of all Americans spend $500 or less on medical costs each year, Health Savings Accounts (HSAs) make sense for many of us. The consumer wins with a tax-advantaged account for medical expenses, which is portable, and grows tax-free, just like an IRA; and wins again with using the lower-cost, must have, high-deductible health policy. The 'Consumer's Guide to HSAs' answers the question What's in it for Me?

Pain is a leading cause of disability globally. The dramatic increase in opioid prescriptions within the past decade in the United States has contributed to the opioid epidemic the country currently faces, magnifying the need for longer term solutions to treat pain. The substantial burden of pain and the ongoing opioid crisis have attracted increased attention in medical and public policy communities, resulting in a revolution in thinking about how pain is managed. This new thinking acknowledges the complexity and biopsychosocial nature of the pain experience and the need for multifaceted pain management approaches with both pharmacological and nonpharmacological therapies. The magnitude and urgency of the twin problems of chronic pain and opioid addiction, combined with the changing landscape of pain management, prompted the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine to convene a workshop on December 4aEURO"5, 2018, in Washington, DC. The workshop brought together a diverse group of stakeholders to discuss the current status of nonpharmacological approaches to pain management, gaps, and future directions. This publication summarizes the presentations and discussions from the workshop.

Although everybody had and will experience anxiety, its intensity, frequency and characteristics may vary from what can be considered as "normal" to pathological. The development of benzodiazepine as anxiolytics has been a major step firstly in therapeutics and secondly in the understanding of the associated biological mechanisms. Recently, new drugs without secondary effects of benzodiazepines have been developed. The purpose of the book was to take stock of the present knowledge: clinical aspects of pathological anxiety, neurobiological mechanisms associated with stress and anxiety, molecular targets of potent anxiolytic drugs, new issues and directions.

Mapping and, ultimately, deciphering the human genome is a major human and scientific adventure that involves thousands of researchers world-wide and considerable funds. Bertrand Jordan, an active scientist in this field, became also a privileged observer through a sabbatical year devoted to visiting nearly a hundred participating laboratories around the world. This placed him in an ideal position to see, discuss, record and analyse progress and difficulties in this endeavour. These observations are the basis for a regular feature, "Chroniques Genomiques" (Tales of the Genome) published in the French periodical medecine/sciences. This book is an integrated, expanded and updated version of the 1990-1993 chronicles. It provides a technically detailed but accessible account of the "Genome World" from the viewpoint of a practising scientist. It describes the strategies implemented in settings that range from small laboratories to semi-industrial installations such as "Genethon", and the associated questions in terms of national policies, economic stakes and ethical issues.
