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 opportunistic eye infections in transplant patients; clinical manifestations of acute baclofen toxicity in adults; a model information system for healthcare systems; an overview of eye-related photophobia; advances in apical microsurgery; treatment of implant surfaces; gamma knife radiosurgery for GH-producing adenomas; dental considerations for acromegaly; fungal vaccines; an assessment of the substandard drugs in developing countries; intestinal colic; and infectious agents and autoimmunity in acute coronary atherothrombosis.
