BISAC: MED000000

This book includes eight chapters describing recent advances in health and disease. Chapter One describes the use and risk management of opioids in pain management. Chapter Two deals with the current status and future challenges of paclitaxel, an anti-cancer drug. Chapter Three describes common suprascapular nerve blockade techniques for management of chronic shoulder pain. Chapter Four investigates the experimental and theoretical techniques used to assess the antiradical potency of neurotransmitters, especially norepinephrine. Chapter Five explores how mathematics and physics apply to aesthetic dermatology. Chapter Six highlights key 21st century zoonotic diseases leading to epidemics and pandemics and how they are connected to the current COVID-19 pandemic. Chapter Seven describes a case of a melanocytic tumor of unknown malignant potential with the Meyerson phenomenon. Finally, Chapter Eight studies whether Propolis-coated pillows with a rough surface could serve as a treatment for facial wrinkles.
