The chapters in this volume present the latest developments in medicine and biology. Chapters One and Two review the clinical uses, functionality, mechanisms of action and adverse reactions of Andrographis Paniculata. Chapter Three gives an overview of the chemical structure and biosynthesis of triacylglycerols in vegetables, and their health benefits. Chapter Four discusses long-chain fatty acids in triacylglycerol stores and physical performance. Chapter Five presents the different methods for determining skin color. Chapter Six discusses the imaging of chronic pancreatitis. Chapter Seven examines the influence of gingivitis on abdominal aortic aneurysms. Chapter Eight provides a review of the existing research on measurement, rates, correlates, and consequences of sedentary behavior in Multiple Sclerosis. Chapter Nine focuses on injury and recovery of the periodontal ligament. (Imprint: Nova Biomedical)
