The chapters in this volume present the latest developments in medicine and biology. Chapters One begins with a review of the clinical aspects, side effects and potential complications of intrauterine devices (IUD). Chapter Two analyzes new strategies to reduce the burst release effect of copper-based IUDs. Chapter Three discusses ubiquitin-conjugating enzymes. Chapter Four provides some advanced research and treatment methods in the enhancement of innate immune response to prevent infections or infections leading to diseases. Chapter Five focuses on Basiliximab. Chapter Six studies bismuth ions, gastrins, and their biological activity in the gastrointestinal tract. Chapter Seven analyzes the risks and benefits of the barium enema. Chapter Eight investigates the complications caused by ventilation in patients with acute respiratory distress syndrome. Chapter Nine includes a critical discussion on the management of a quadricep hematoma from acute injury to the end stage of rehabilitation. The final chapter provides an updated review on the mechanisms linking obesity with inflammation, and analyzes the importance of inflammatory biomarkers such as TNF-alpha, IL-6, C-reactive protein and Ceruloplasmin as connecting links between inflammation, obesity and associated complications.
