Om Antioxidants and Stem Cells for Coronary
This book covers two known controversial topics — antioxidants and stem cells as therapies to treat coronary heart disease. Aiming to provide college-educated but not scientifically trained readership with a wealth of information about these two cutting- edge technologies, Antioxidants and Stem Cells for Coronary Heart Disease is written with minimum scientific terminology. Basic science studies and clinical trials regarding stem cells and antioxidants are discussed and peppered with anecdotes to make them understandable and entertaining to the laymen.Contents:Part I:The French ParadoxLDL Oxidation — BrieflyAcetylation of LDLFree RadicalsThe Oxygen ParadoxRetrolental Fibroplasia from 1956 to 1972: The Quiet TimeThe Second Epidemic of Retrolental Fibroplasia: 1972–20??Cytokines and ChemokinesLDL Oxidation by Free Radicals — In DetailTwo Other Ways to Oxidize LDL: Lipoxygenase and Nitric OxideWhat is the Raison d'être for Oxidized LDL?Fatty Streaks and Foam CellsEmbryonic Stem CellsAdult Stem CellsTransgenic MicePart II:Treatment of Coronary Heart Disease with Antioxidants: An IntroductionThe Mediterranean DietAcute Myocardial Infarctions in Japan and Norway from 1910 to 1950Wine, Beer, and Spirits as AntioxidantsA Perspective on Antioxidant Vitamins for the Treatment of Coronary Heart DiseaseVitamin AThe Thalidomide SagaVitamin CVitamin EDo Combinations of Antioxidant Vitamins Work Better than Individual Vitamins in Patients with Coronary Heart Disease?A RequiemMolecular Markers, Reporter Genes and Suicide GenesStem Cells for the Heart: Hype or Hope?The PrizefightBrainbowCre/Lox: A Cut-and-Paste Method of Gene Swapping Without a Mac or PC and a New Scientific Term with Vast SignificanceBacteriophage, Transgenic Mice and Transgenic MarmosetsPhage Geometry and Soccer BallsEuler's FormulaE = mc2 and Einstein's BrainThe Manhattan Project and Its Connection with Albert EinsteinA Gadget, a Little Boy and a Fat ManCamillo Golgi and Santiago Ramón Y Cajal: Bitter Rivals to The EndReadership: College-educated general public and non-scientists who are interested in the topic of antioxidants and stem cells.
