Endocrinology: Basic and Clinical Principles is a new, original, and encyclopedic tutorial survey of the latest scientific and clinical knowledge across the entire spectrum of endocrinology-from mammalian cells, plants, and insects to animal models and human disease. This superbly concise book, edited and written by leading scientists and clinicians, illuminates the basic scientific principles underlying every aspect of hormone secretion and action and leads the reader toward a full understanding of the pathogenesis and management of human endocrine disease. Endocrinology: Basic and Clinical Principles provides a comprehensive knowledge base of both the fundamental and clinical science of endocrinology. It will immediately become an indispensable guide-not only for students, but also for all professionals who need a high-quality, absolutely up-to-date critical survey and reference in endocrinology today. The practicing endocrinologist will find it particularly useful as a user-friendly encyclopedia of applied basic endocrine science
