After losing her high-octane job as an entertainment blogger, Noelle Hancock was lost. About to turn twenty-nine, she'd spent her career writing about celebrities' lives and had forgotten how to live her own. Unemployed and full of self-doubt, she had no idea what she wanted out of life. She feared change-in fact, she feared almost everything. Once confident and ambitious, she had become crippled by anxiety, lacking the courage required even to attend a dinner party-until inspiration struck one day in the form of a quote on a chalkboard in a coffee shop: "Do one thing every day that scares you." -Eleanor Roosevelt Painfully timid as a child, Eleanor Roosevelt dedicated herself to facing her fears, a commitment that shaped the rest of her life. With Eleanor as her guide, Noelle spends the months leading up to her thirtieth birthday pursuing a "Year of Fear." From shark diving to fighter pilot lessons, from tap dancing and stand-up comedy to confronting old boyfriends, her hilarious and harrowing adventures teach her about who she is, and what she can become-lessons she makes vital for all of us.

Advances in the study and understanding of myasthenia gravis have led to the need for the publication of this important new edition. The goal of Myasthenia Gravis and Related Disorders, Second Edition is identical to the first -- to provide the clinician and the scientist with a common resource for understanding this complex disorder. This new edition begins with discussions of neuromuscular junction structure and function and follows with updated chapters covering a wide range of topics, such as the acetylcholine receptor, clinical presentation, diagnostic evaluation, and treatment. Importantly, new supplemental chapters have been added; these discuss rigorous clinical assessments of patients for research trials and the epidemiology and genetics of myasthenia gravis. The discussion of the most challenging aspects of myasthenia gravis, its impact on patients' psychological make-up, has been expanded as well. Myasthenia Gravis and Related Disorders, Second Edition retains the "personal approach" of the authors regarding treatment and is a valuable resource for meeting the many and varied needs of patients with myasthenia gravis.
A panel of accomplished scientists describe their innovative, cutting-edge methods for determining the levels of mycotoxin contamination in foods and feeds. Almost half the methods presented involve molecular-based immunochemical or immunochemical/chromatographic techniques. The necessary equipment, reagents, and procedures are given in great detail for the analysis of a wide variety of mycotoxins, including aflatoxins, aflatoxin M1, cyclopiazonic acid, ochratoxin A, trichothcenes, moniliformin, fumonisins, zearlenone, Stachybotrys toxins, citrinin, patulin, ergot alkaloids, and Alternaria toxins. General techniques for mycotoxin analysis, sampling procedures for collecting representative test samples, isolation techniques, and techniques for the detection and identification of toxins and impurities are also included. Up-to-date and highly practical, Mycotoxin Protocols provides a comprehensive collection of the latest bioanalytical techniques for evaluating the contamination of mycotoxins in foods and feeds.
Mycotoxins are produced worldwide by several fungi on a wide range of agricultural commodities and are closely related to human and animal food chains. Examining mycotoxins and their impact from a public health viewpoint, this book provides an overview and introduction to the subject and examines the health, trade and legislation issues involved. Management of mycotoxins is discussed in detail as well as the global problems caused by mycotoxins.
Mycotoxins are made by different biosynthetic pathways, and they have an extremely wide range of pharmacological effects. This book will update readers on several cutting-edge aspects of mycotoxin research, including topics such as: new analytical methods for detection; the adoption of an ancient Mexican process for detoxification of aflatoxins; mycotoxin management in Ireland, Lithuania and South America; mycotoxin reduction through plant breeding and integrated management practices; and natural aflatoxin inhibitors from medicinal plants. Further contributions examine ochratoxins, selected trichothecenes, zearalenone, and aflatoxin-like gene clusters, as well as sclerotial development in Aspergillus flavus and A. parasiticus. Of particular interest are the chapters on the potential use of mycotoxins as bioweapons. This book will stimulate new thinking on the need to develop therapeutic as well as preventative interventions to reduce the toxicological threat of mycotoxins.
Myelin Repair and Neuroprotection in Multiple Sclerosis presents an up-date on the translational potential of promoting remyelination in multiple sclerosis (MS). A number of research frontiers still exist in this challenging disease. The cause remains elusive, preventing breakthroughs in its prevention. The move towards oral immunomodulatory therapies has been a major advance, as has the finding of new genes linked to susceptibility that may open the door to new therapeutic approaches. However, a frontier that has been making significant strides in recent years has been that surrounding the neurobiology of myelin regeneration and axon protection: such have been the advances that clinical translation is on the cusp of being achieved. Two broad approaches to therapeutic enhancement of remyelination are envisaged: promoting endogenous remyelination by targeting cells present in the CNS, or, replacing lost myelinating cells from exogenous sources. Current research on oligodendrocyte biology, the pathology of MS, imaging of lesions and the biology of remyelination are paving the way toward opening this new translational frontier. Professor Duncan and Professor Franklin have assembled a broad group of experts in the fields of glial cell biology, neuropathology, radiology and clinical neurology to provide the background toward taking remyelination from experimented models into MS patients.
Myeloma is the second-most common hematologic cancer, accounting for approximately 1 percent of all cancers and 2 percent of all deaths from cancer. In recent years there have been major and significant advances in the diagnosis, imaging, molecular pathogenesis, and therapy of myeloma. This book describes these advances in a single, practical volume, placing them in the context of daily clinical practice. Different myeloma subtypes are discussed in individual chapters, integrating etiology, pathogenesis, molecular pathology, histology, and therapy in a single place for each condition. The book begins by discussing epidemiology, imaging techniques, pathogenesis, and other general considerations. Conditions covered in detail include multiple myeloma, POEMS syndrome, Castleman's syndrome, Waldenstrom's macroglobulinemia, amyloidosis and MGUS. Featuring color illustrations, and written and edited by leading authorities in the field, Myeloma provides readers with the information they need to diagnose and manage these complex disorders.

Now, after more than a decade, R. M. Meluch returns to the science fiction firmament with the first novel in a fast-paced, action-packed military science fiction series that seriously wreaks havoc with space, time, and our concepts of reality. Set in the distant future, when Earth and her colony worlds have long been at war with the forces of the Palatine Empire-an offshoot Earth culture that bases its values, civilization, and military structure on those of the Roman Empire-R. M. Meluch introduces us to her universe at a pivotal moment in its history. Following the tenet that, "The enemy of my enemy is my ally," the forces of Earth and the Palatine have recently united in an uneasy and extremely fragile alliance against the Hive, the alien life-form that is swarming across the galaxy, literally devouring everything it encounters along the way. What this means for Captain Farragut, commander of the battleship class spaceship U.S. Merrimack, is that he is about to be loaned a new officer as part of his crew-a Roman "patterner" named Augustus, manipulated through bioengineering to be something more than human. Just before they acquire Augustus, the crew of U.S. Merrimack stumble across a still-active signal buoy at a far-distant globular cluster. And, against all odds, within the cluster they discover three colonized worlds known as the Myriad, which the Hive have apparently overlooked. Even Augustus can't foresee all of the perils that will await them when they make contact with the local humanoids, who are obviously not native to these worlds but have colonized them at some point in the past. Due certainly at least in part to the Merrimack's very presence in the system, paradox begins to flow into paradox almost too fast for even the genetically and cybernetically enhanced patterner to follow. And as the Hive closes in on both the Merrimack and the ships of the Palatine Empire-it becomes critical to unravel the mystery of the Myriad. For the price of failure may be the destruction of not only the Myriad, but of Earth.and Palatine as well....
