Altern: Zelluläre und molekulare Grundlagen, körperliche by Ludger Rensing,Volkhard Rippe

By Ludger Rensing,Volkhard Rippe

Das für ein breites Publikum geschriebene Werk zeigt die kausalen Verbindungen zwischen den messbaren Alterserscheinungen und den zugrundeliegenden Veränderungen in Genen, Zellen und in deren Kommunikationssystemen auf. Molekularbiologische Ansätze gewinnen in Medizin und Pharmakologie immer mehr an Bedeutung (Molekulare Medizin, targeted therapies, genombasierte personalisierte Medizin), und Kenntnisse über kausale Mechanismen der Alterung werden die Vorsorge und Therapie zahlreicher Alterskrankheiten deutlich verbessern können. Die Autoren erläutern diese Zusammenhänge an elf menschlichen Funktionssystemen: Haut, Knochenskelett, Muskulatur, Kreislauf und Lunge, Immunsystem, Verdauungssystem, Ausscheidungssystem, Sexualität und Fortpflanzung, Hormonsystem, zentrales Nervensystem und Sinnesorgane.

Jedes Kapitel beginnt mit einer kurzen Übersicht über die normalen Funktionen des Systems; dann werden die altersabhängigen Veränderungen und Erkrankungen mit den zugrundeliegenden molekularen Mechanismen dargestellt. Abschließend gehen die Autoren auf einige medizinische Aspekte von Alterserkrankungen und wichtige therapeutische Ansätze ein. Am Anfang des Buches steht ein einführendes Kapitel über die grundlegenden (evolutions)biologischen Fragen zu Alterungsvorgängen, gefolgt von einer Übersicht über den gegenwärtigen Stand der Altersforschung und die wichtigsten Alterstheorien, darunter die Theorie der Schadensakkumulation und die Theorie der Verkürzung der Chromosomenenden (Telomere). Im letzten Kapitel des Werkes geht es schließlich um die Frage, wodurch die Korrelation zwischen adjust und dem Auftreten der meisten Krebstypen zustande kommt und welche äußeren und inneren Faktoren dabei mitwirken.​​​

Performance-Based Management Systems: Effective by Patria de Lancer Julnes

By Patria de Lancer Julnes

Expectations for functionality administration structures keep growing within the public zone. but few directors understand how to successfully enforce and maintain those platforms. Performance-Based administration structures: potent Implementation and Maintenance helps functional efforts to construct and continue functionality administration platforms in public agencies, explaining hindrances to dimension efforts and delivering tips on find out how to triumph over them.



The publication starts off by means of exploring functionality size as a key component to performance-based administration structures. It discusses its legacy and its boundaries and gives competing reasons of the standards that constrain its potent use. subsequent, it specializes in construction concept in aid of perform via a combined equipment strategy. It examines examine reconciling the conflicting reasons for the shortcoming of right use of functionality dimension info. Then it deals new insights for constructing a context-sensitive version of functionality dimension which can bring about potent practices.



The 3rd half develops those insights right into a pragmatic version of performance-based administration. It presents a pragmatic clarification of the contributions of functionality dimension and offers suggestion derived from present perform. the writer concludes by way of highlighting the reason, equipment, and findings of 2 stories that served because the origin for this e-book. She additionally offers ultimate feedback of the way to maneuver perform and conception forward.



This quantity explains why functionality dimension isn't really extra familiar within the public region, and explores how implementation of functionality size will be greater with insights won from extant literature on public coverage, organizational politics and tradition, and information usage. Mastery of this fabric will permit practitioners to appreciate easy methods to successfully enforce regulations that may certainly effect their agencies and their staff.
