This ten-chapter volume presents some recent advancements in health and disease. Chapter One explains the increased mortality rate owing to atherothrombosis and cardiovascular diseases. Chapter Two reviews the evidence for all current management strategies for recurrent hypoglycaemia in diabetes. Chapter Three provides information on the relationship between obesity and circulating levels of C-reactive protein. Chapter Four describes high-sensitivity C-reactive protein as a biomarker of diabetes and hypertension. Chapter Five studies the combination of two self-associating biopolymers such as high-molar-mass hyaluronan and chitosan for treatment of skin wounds. Chapter Six outlines an integrated approach to address the issues of high levels of stress and burnout in the workplace. Chapter Seven examines pericoronary adipose tissue as a possible storage and supply site for lipoproteins and apolipoproteins in the human coronary artery. Chapter Eight deals with corneal collagen cross-linking protocols for the management of keratoconus. Chapter Nine discusses free radicals, their formation and catabolism, and their beneficial and adverse effects on cellular activities. Finally, Chapter Ten details various diagnostic tests for vasculitis.
