Edition after edition, Williams Hematology has guided generations of clinicians, biomedical researchers, and trainees in many disciplines through the origins, pathophysiological mechanisms, and management of benign and malignant disorders of blood cells and coagulation proteins. It is acknowledged worldwide as the leading hematology resource, with editors who are internationally regarded for their research and clinical achievements and authors who are luminaries in their fields.

Comprehensive in its depth and breath, this go-to textbook begins with the evaluation of the patient and progresses to the molecular and cellular underpinnings of normal and pathological hematology. Subsequent sections present disorders of the erythrocyte, granulocytes and monocytes, lymphocytes and plasma cells, malignant myeloid and lymphoid diseases, hemostasis and thrombosis, and transfusion medicine.

State Of The World S Vaccines And Immunization from the Author: J. M. Maurice. This report is a call to action to governments and donors to sustain and increase funding for immunization in order to build upon the progress made so far in meeting the global goals. The price of failure will be counted in children's lives. This new edition of the State of the World's Vaccines and Immunization focuses on the major developments in vaccines and immunization since 2000. Part 1 examines the impact of immunization on efforts to meet the MDGs, especially the goal to reduce deaths among children under five. It looks at the development and use of vaccines and at the safeguards that have been put in place to ensure their safety, efficacy, and quality. It sets out the progress and challenges in meeting the immunization-related global goals, and looks at the cost of scaling up immunization coverage to meet these goals, and efforts to ensure that the achievements are sustainable in the long term. Finally, it looks beyond 2015 to likely changes in the immunization landscape. Part 2 focuses on over 20 vaccine-preventable diseases and reviews progress since 2000 in efforts to protect populations against these diseases through the use of vaccines.

The Autoimmune Connection from the Author: Rita Baron-Faust. Empowers women to make informed decisions about autoimmune disorders More than 50 million Americans, most of them women, suffer from a constellation of mysterious, often misdiagnosed diseases that can result in disability, disfigurement, and death. Called "autoimmune diseases," they arise when the immune system attacks healthy tissues in almost any area of the body, and include lupus rheumatoid arthritis, Crohn's disease, scleroderma, and Graves' disease. Now Jill Buyon, a doctor working on the cutting edge of research into these diseases, and Rita Baron-Faust, an award-winning medical journalist, arm women with the knowledge they need to obtain accurate diagnoses and the best possible treatments. In The Autoimmune Connection readers learn about the recent groundbreaking discovery of the links between the different autoimmune diseases and why women are more likely to develop them. The authors offer the most up-to-date information on diagnosis, treatments, and risks for women with one or more autoimmune disease.

Adherence To Long Term Therapies from the Author: Eduardo Sabaté. Medicines can only be effective if patients follow the prescribed course of treatment, yet in developed countries only half of patients with chronic diseases adhere to treatment recommendations. Combined with other factors such as limited access to health care and medicines, this issue has serious consequences for health outcomes and economics. This report reviews the published literature on definitions, measurements, epidemiology, economics and interventions relating to the following nine chronic conditions and risk factors: asthma, palliative cancer care; depression, diabetes, epilepsy, HIV/AIDS, hypertension, smoking and tuberculosis. It also discusses policy developments and options available for improving adherence to long-term therapies.
