This compilation begins with a presentation on the significance of high-density lipoprotein functionality over the actual high-density lipoprotein concentration in mediating favorable effects on the cardiovascular system.

The authors go on to discuss ureter pelvic junction obstruction, which has a reported incidence of 1 in 200 live births and is classified as either congenital or acquired.

Following this, it is proposed that the decision to implement a calculated and measured treatment plan for a specific patient can be made using integral radiobiological criteria, namely tumour control probability and normal tissue complication probability.

An updated understanding of the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of local anesthetic systemic toxicity for healthcare workers, especially those in emergency care who perform local anesthesia in their routine practice, is provided.

Later, the healing potential of light and sound waves is assessed. The objective is to encourage present day researchers to grant appropriate attention to “waveceuticals” in developing new therapeutic strategies.

The authors also review and discuss mechanisms of fusion pore regulation in response to different stimulations in chromaffin cells.

The closing chapter focuses on the differential effects of activin on in vitro grown follicles at different developmental stages in the presence or absence of other activators such as follicle stimulating hormone.
