Volume 2: Authoritatively covers the evidence for new roles of vitamin D, ranging from cardiovascular disease, to cancer, diabetes, inflammatory bowel disease, multiple sclerosis, and renal disease. This collection represents a "who's who" of vitamin D research and the coverage is appropriately broad, drawing in internal medicine, orthopedics, oncology, and immunology. Clinical researchers will gain a strong understanding of the molecular basis for a particular 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
