The Clinics Collections titles take a multidisciplinary approach to today’s practice of medicine, selecting the most recent and relevant articles from the Clinics series and combining them into a single source of information on a focused topic. Articles are chosen from multiple Clinics to highlight the range of specialties covering major medical issues, delivering the information needed for successful interdisciplinary teamwork and effective patient care. Written from a variety of medical perspectives, these articles offer deeper insight into how each specialty cares for its patients and provide a unique entry into sharing best concepts for the entire medical team. Clinics Collections: Precision Medicine draws from Elsevier’s Clinics Review Articles database to provide today’s medical teams with practical clinical advice and insights on this timely medical model. It guides readers on how to apply current primary research findings to everyday practice, keep up with new and improved treatment methods, and improve patient outcomes. Areas of focus include breast cancer, lung cancer, melanoma, arthritis, sleep medicine, and pediatric oncology. Each article begins with keywords and key points for immediate access to the most critical information. Articles are presented in an easy-to-digest and concisely worded format.

Multidisciplinary Approaches to Theory in Medicine Excerpt :

This volume will be a collection of chapters from authors with wide experience in their research field. The purpose is to produce a coherent book that reflects the common theme of theory in medical thinking and multidisciplinary research practice. In this context "theory" relates to frameworks of concepts, facts, models etc that help to inform practitioners (clinicians, scientists and engineers) both within their own fields and as they seek to share dialogue with colleagues from other fields. The book will therefore be integrative across a broad spectrum of fields within medicine. To achieve this the chapters will be associated with others in a number of meaningful ways. Each chapter will share a number of points of contact that will include at least two of the following: *similar biomedical area (e.g., immunity, neuroscience, endocrinology, pathology, oncology, haematology, …) *similar multidisciplinary theoretical contexts (e.g., modelling, analysis, description, visualization, complex systems, …) *similar multidisciplinary medical issues and questions (e.g., clinical practice, decision making, informatics, …) •Uniquely explores role of interdisciplinary exchange in the development and expansion of medical theory •Timely and insightful essays on the growth and development of medical theories from some of the world's top clinicians and medical researchers, including Werner Arber, Frank Vertosick, and David Weatherall •Assembles diverse perspectives on medicine and physiology from biology, statistics, ethics, computer science, philosophy, history •Uniquely illuminates the social and historical processes through which theoretical research translates into clinical practice •Reveals the growing role of technology, especially computational modelling, in changing the nature of Western medicine

Precision Medicine in Diabetes Excerpt :

Bringing clarity to the emerging model of precision medicine within the diabetes field, and expanding upon how it will lead to the development of specifically tailored treatment for patients and even macro strategies in public health, this unique book explores the realm of biomarkers in the era of big data. Various experts in their respective areas discuss the current practice to illuminate how creating a more discreet profile of patients and even substratum of populations will lead to more refined therapies targeted towards the phenotype and genotype of the patient. Embracing a multidisciplinary team science approach, this book demonstrates how precision medicine in diabetes can mine a web of data toward diabetes risk stratification and treatment options. The authors skillfully articulate how the construction of various prediction-based models can revolutionize clinical decision-making, and they examine the challenges and pitfalls of integrating disparate sources of information and how the collection of data and cooperation among stakeholders will be key to the future of precision medicine in diabetes treatment. Topics include personalized approaches to the management of both type 1 and type 2 diabetes, various macro and microvascular complications of diabetes, inpatient management of glycemia, nutrition, exercise, advances in diabetes technology and others. Ideal for clinical endocrinologists and other professionals involved in the management of diabetes and its complications, Precision Medicine in Diabetes is first of its kind to address this paradigm-shifting topic in a comprehensive way.

Precision Medicine in Oncology Excerpt :

The emerging precision medicine approach aims to tailor disease prevention and treatment to each patient on the basis of individual variability, environmental factors and lifestyle. Fundamental achievements in the last few decades have converged to offer nowadays the compelling opportunity to move towards this innovative approach: i) unprecedented improvements in disease modeling in silico, in vitro and in vivo; ii) acquisition of a wide range of biomedical information combined with the development of computational toolsets for flexible and integrative analyses of multi-assay datasets. Our deeper understanding of oncogenic mechanisms has finally begun to have a crucial impact on clinical decisions at several steps, from cancer prevention and diagnosis to therapeutic intervention. However, precision oncology still encounters several unresolved hurdles including tumour heterogeneity and recurrence as well as unexplained drug resistance and lack of effective ways to monitor response to therapeutic treatments. Notably, limitations in biomedical research regulation and governance represent additional debatable issues that need careful consideration.
