Edited By Sheppard, Darren; Sparks, Simon and Thomas, Colin
This is the first book to consider the increasing importance of Jean-Luc Nancy's work, which has influenced key thinkers such as Jacques Derrida. All his major works have been translated into English, yet until now little has been made available on his place in contemporary philosophy. By showing how he situates his work in a contemporary context - the collapse of communism, the Gulf War, and the former Yugoslavia - this outstanding collection reveals how Nancy's engagement with Hegel, Marx, Nietzsche, Heidegger and Derrida makes him one of the key contemporary continental philosophers. Providing new perspectives on the issues of sense, art and community, these essays make it impossible to approach philosophy without reference to the work Jean-Luc Nancy. 219pp. N.B. Previous owners inscription to ffep. Edges slightly creased.

After a decade or longer, approximately one-third of individuals with either Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes commence a downhill course in which decreasing renal function and failing vision define a renal-retinal syndrome, dominating all aspects of life and presaging early death. Only a generation ago, survival after onset of end-stage renal disease (ESRD) in diabetes was limited because rehabilitation was pre-empted by blindness, limb amputation, stroke, and heart disease. By 1998, however, team management has improved the outlook, with preserved sight and return to work and home responsibilities, usually for a decade or longer, following kidney transplantation and laser photocoagulation. Recognition of the critical requirement for blood pressure regulation and metabolic control are central themes in management. In this book, the accomplishments of ophthalmologists, nephrologists, diabetologists, transplant surgeons, and basic scientists are blended into a strategic approach that may be readily applied by all those caring for diabetic patients. Each of 21 presentations suitable for primary care physicians, as well as for subspecialists concerned with macrovascular and microvascular complications of diabetes, is placed in perspective by an introductory editorial analysis. Promising near-term innovative therapies, including insertion of genetically engineered beta cells or polymer-coated islets of Langerhans, interdiction of kinins that promote retinal angiogenesis, and prevention of synthesis of advanced glycosylated endproducts (AGEs), are presented in detail. While comprehensive care of diabetic patients reflects multiple incremental advances which afford major benefit, this text envisions further remarkable changes likely to suppress and possibly entirely prevent the diabetic renal-retinal syndrome.284pp.

Edited By Parkinson,Christopher Etc
The timing of toxicological studies in relation to the clinical evaluation of new medicines is a key topic for strategic planners in the industry and those involved with harmonization. Resolving the anomalies between different regulatory authorities should eliminate redundant testing on animals and improve the efficiency of the developmental process by encouraging single international strategies. To aid industry in reaching a consensus, the Centre for Medicines Research has brought together representatives of the pharmaceutical industry from Europe, Japan and the USA to give a comprehensive account of current international industry positions on the subject. The contributions in this text review the situation and address the clinical and strategic requirements of the pre-clinical programme. Personal and consensus proposals on the toxicity studies required to initiate clinical investigations, the timing of reproductive toxicity tests and the duration of repeat-dose studies to support clinical development are provided. Small mark at base of spine.128pp.
