Endocrine Aspects of Disease Processes presents a critical review of hypothalamic hormones regulating the secretion of the anterior pituitary. The book discusses calcitonin as a hormone of ultimobranchials; the brain monoamines and thyroid hormones on emotional stress induced by sympathomimetic agents; and the pharmacology of aggression.
Some of the topics covered in the book are the characteristics of brain plasticity under stress; the sleep-wakefulness patterns; the endocrine factors in the etiology of peptic ulcer; and blood sugar levels and allergies. The inflammation and structure of thymus; the cause of coronary and cerebral artery thrombosis in human; and the definition of serum aminopexy are also considered. The book further tackles corticosterone-binding by transcortin; the pituitary-thyroid-adrenocortical interaction in the rat; and the description of polypeptides and biogenic amines in the acute inflammatory reactions. The text also looks into the pathogenesis of adrenal-regeneration and methyl-androstenediol hypertension; and the peripheral vasodilation and thymic tumors in magnesium-deficient rats. A chapter is devoted to the role of the adrenal cortex in the pathogenesis of a spontaneous hereditary congestive heart failure.
The book can provide useful information to endocrinologist, doctors, students, and researchers.
