This continuing series gathers and presents original research results on the leading edge of medicine and biology. Each article has been carefully selected in an attempt to present substantial topical data across a broad spectrum. Topics discussed in this book include gastroesophageal reflux disease and sleep disorders; soybean-derived thyroglobulin as an analyte specific reagent for in vitro diagnostic tests and devices; optic neuritis and sarcoidosis; radiculotherapy; impact of betaine HCl on the absorption of orally administered drugs; relationships between disease activity, work-home conflict, and burnout among Crohn’s disease patients; global challenges in the identification and management of pre-eclampsia; management of fibromialgia symptoms; acid indigestion; environmental factors stimulating the manifestation of iodine deficiency disorders; preoperative serum thyroglobulin concentration as a predictive factor of malignancy in follicular and hürthle cell neoplasms of the thyroid gland; thyroglobulin antibodies in patients with skin disorders; and financing health care.
