not yet rated|write a review
International experts in endocrinology, bone biology, and human physiology take readers through the basic research of vitamin D. This impressive reference presents a comprehensive review of the multi-faceted vitamin D. Researchers from all areas of vitamin D will gain insight into how clinical observations and practices can feed back into the research cycle and will, therefore, be able to develop more targeted genomic and proteomic insights into the mechanisms of disease. Offers a comprehensive reference ranging from basic bone biology, to biochemistry, to the clinical diagnostic and management implications of vitamin D Saves researchers and clinicians time in quickly accessing the very latest details on the diverse scientific and clinical aspects of Vitamin D, as opposed to searching through thousands of journal articles Chapter authors include the most prominent and well-published names in the field Volume I targets chemistry, metabolism and circulation; mechanisms of action; mineral and bone homeostasis; targets; human physiology; diagnosis and management; nutrition, sunlight, genetics and vitamin D deficiency Volume II presents a clinical focus on disorders; analogs; cancer; immunity, inflammation and disease; and therapeutic applications
