Animal Models in Diabetes Research (Methods in Molecular Biology)

Monday, December 17th, 2012

In recent years, human studies have made enormous contributions towards an understanding of the genetic basis of diabetes mellitus; however, most of the experimentation needed for the invention and testing of novel therapeutic approaches cannot be performed in humans.  Thus, there is no alternative to appropriate animal models.  In Animal Models in Diabetes Research, expert researchers explore the current status of the most important models and procedures in order to provide a timely resource in experimental diabetology.  The first half of the volume serves as a comprehensive overview on our current knowledge of the pathogenesis and pathophysiology of diabetes in animal models through a series of reviews in model strains.  The book then continues with vital, established protocols that are employed in the characterization and study of animal models of diabetes.  As a volume in the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology™ series, this work contains the type of detailed description and key implementation advice necessary to achieve successful results.   Authoritative and cutting-edge, Animal Models in Diabetes Research delivers essential content that will be an important resource to advance diabetes research in the years to come.

 

Animal Models of Diabetes, Second Edition: Frontiers in Research (Frontiers in Animal Diabetes R)

Friday, December 7th, 2012

As the incidence of diabetes increases worldwide, the need for recommendations on how to prevent and treat the condition grows exponentially, and so does the need for an authoritative source for information on the appropriate models to study the condition. The new edition of Animal Models of Diabetes is that source. The book presents updated and expanded information regarding the use of models in experiments with both Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes.

The new edition compiles relevant time-saving information on well-recognized models, including various mice, rats, minipigs, and Rhesus monkeys, and provides extensive references for more in-depth study. It contains new and updated referenced reviews on animals with induced obesity as well as observations on retinopathy in spontaneous diabetes resembling human lesions. The book discusses nutritionally diabetes-prone animals and considerations of insulin resistance and obesity. The contributors also address the importance of recent findings on the pathogenesis of diabetes and its complications in relation to human disease.

Including contributions from prominent experts in the field, the book brings together scattered data and lucidly presents it. This promotes the understanding of the etiopathology of diabetes and offers a new grasp of the insulin action, its negative feedback leading to insulin resistance, and its detrimental outcomes. The book also includes new knowledge on specific complications of diabetes, offering an incentive to test advanced modalities to prevent and inhibit their occurrence.
