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 pathophysiology of pyoderma gangrenosum; oral anticoagulants; acute gastroenteritis of viral etiology; identifying ¡°aging phenotypes¡± by quantifying t-cell receptor excision circles (TREC); therapeutic efficacy of the caspofungin for candida and aspergillus species and resistance mechanisms; implication of v¦Ä1¦Ã¦Ät cells in operational tolerance after human liver transplantation; and clinical utility of caspofungin in ocular fungal infections.
