Death Check from the Author: Warren Murphy. Someone is taking a special interest in the Brewster Forum think tank: compromising photos have been taken; their security officer is dead under suspicious circumstances; information about its members is being traded in shadowy places by shadowy figures. This wouldn't normally be a job for America's most deniable covert agency, but the Forum has recently devised what it calls a 'simple little plan to conquer the world'. National security is at risk, and there's only one man tough enough to take on the threat. Remo Williams is The Destroyer, an ex-cop who should be dead, but instead fights for the secret government law-enforcement organization, CURE. Trained in the esoteric martial art of by his aged mentor, Chiun, Remo is America's last line of defence. Breathlessly action-packed and boasting a winning combination of thrills, humour and mysticism, the Destroyer is one of the bestselling series of all time.

Clinical Approach To Sudden Cardiac Death Syndromes from the Author: Ramon Brugada. Clinical cardiologists are encountering an important challenge in the caring of families with inherited cardiac diseases. The majority of the inherited cardiac diseases causing sudden death express themselves at variable ages in the form of altered muscle function (i.e hypertrophic or dilated cardiomyopathy) or in the form of arrhythmias (i.e. Brugada syndrome, long QT syndrome). However, it is not uncommon that the first sign of the disease may actually be sudden cardiac death, even before the identification of clear clinical abnormalities. In this last decade, with more than 50 new disease-associated genes identified, the possibility of genetic testing has opened a new opportunity to disease diagnosis and prevention. Clinical and genetic research is continuously on-going not only to identify those at risk, but to better define their level or risk still with limited success.

Death Check from the Author: Warren Murphy. The big brains behind the business usually have many pots boiling on their stove, or running their think engines as the case may be. But when the business motto of the Brewster forum, "Pursuing Research Into Original Thought," leads them to some eccentric affairs that throw them far enough off track, Remo Williams enlists the help of his Master Chiun to solve a harrowing crime.

The Demography And Epidemiology Of Human Health And Aging from the Author: Jacob S. Siegel. With this book, Siegel, an internationally known demographer and gerontologist, has made a unique contribution to the fledgling fields of health demography, and the demography and epidemiology of aging. The book represents a felicitous union of epidemiology, gerontology, and demography, and appears to be the first and only comprehensive text on this subject now available. Drawing on a wide range of sciences in addition to demography, gerontology, and epidemiology, including medical sociology, biostatistics, public policy, bioethics, and molecular biology, the author treats theoretical and applied issues, links methods and findings, covers the material internationally, nationally, and locally, and while focusing on the elderly, treats the entire life course. The methods, materials, and pespectives of demography and epidemiology are brought to bear on such topics as the prospects for future increases in human longevity, the relative contribution of life style, environment, genetics, and chance in human longevity, the measurement of the share of healthy years in total life expectancy, the role of population growth in the rising costs of health care, and the applications of health demography in serving the health needs of local communities. The separate chapters systematically develop the topics of the sources and quality of health data; mortality, life tables, and the measurement of health status; the interrelationships of health, on the one hand, and mortality, fertility, migration, and age structure, on the other; health conditions in the less developed countries; the concepts and theories of aging and projections of the aged population; and local health applications, public health policy, and bioethical issues in health demography. Given its comprehensiveness, clarity, interdisciplinary scope, and authencity, this book appeals to a wide range of users, from students and teachers of medical sociology, the demography of aging, and public health studies to practitioners in these areas, both as a text in health demography and the demography/epidemiology of aging, and as a reference work in these fields.

Bcl 2 Protein Family from the Author: Claudio Hetz. In this book, scientists pioneering the field have compiled a series of focused chapters to highlight the relevance of the BCL‐2 family of proteins in apoptosis, physiology and disease. An important focus of this volume is considering the potential TH ERA PEUT IC benefits of targeting apoptosis pathways in the context of human disease. Readers interested in understanding how a cell handles stress and the consequences of dysregulation of this process for human disease will find this book very valuable. It attempts to describe a fascinating area of research where physiology and biomedicine converge at different levels, revealing a trip from the molecular regulation of apoptosis to the impact of this process to the physiology of a whole organism.

Check Mate from the Author: Chris Milligan. Just how did he do it? How did Pierre LeMoyne d'Iberville-alone, outgunned, and outnumbered-defy what should have been a rout for the English! Instead, he sinks a Royal Navy vessel with all hands onboard, captures a second ship, and chases off a third! Few Canadians know of this classic 17th century encounter on Hudson Bay. How did geography, distance, and a final ironic historical twist of fate leave everyone shaking their heads in disbelief, make tatters of his victory, and deny Iberville super hero status in France? All the answers to these and other life-altering questions are explained through the eyes and experiences of two twelve-year-old boys on opposite sides of this epic battle.
