Series: Advances in Medicine and Biology

BISAC: MED000000

This edited volume presents seven chapters detailing recent advancements in the fields of medicine and biology. Chapter One describes the regularities of abzyme production in patients with autoimmune diseases as well as in experimental mice. Chapter Two reviews the partners that assist polytopic membrane proteins in their way to acquiring their final structure. Chapter Three presents an approach for the development of an efficient biological sensor for the detection of biochemicals in large scales. Chapter Four shows the different flavin-based fluorescent proteins and fatty-acid-binding proteins and the advantages and disadvantages of using these anaerobic fluorescent proteins for real-time imaging in complex systems versus aerobic fluorescent proteins. Chapter Five discusses the main benefits of exercise for cirrhotic patients and current exercise prescription guidelines for this population. Chapter Six concerns the role thiamine deficiency plays in causing pediatric lactic acidosis. Finally, Chapter Seven discusses the mechanism of wound healing involving stem cells in IIIa burns and proposes using the state of NC1 conformations as an objective indicator of epidermal restoration and the topology of solenoid chromosome construction as an indicator of dermis restoration.
