  Chronic Renal Disease comprehensively investigates the physiology, pathophysiology, treatment, and management of chronic kidney disease (CKD).This translational reference takes an in-depth look at CKD while excluding coverage of dialysis or transplantation, which are both well detailed in other textbooks and Edition: 1. With continued progress in mapping and sequencing of the human genome, and increasing recognition of the role of genes in disease etiology, there is a need for a more sophisticated approach to the investigation of the causes of complex chronic diseases. This text integrates the principles, methods and approaches of epidemiology and genetics in the study of disease etiology. The epidemiology of hepatitis D occurs worldwide. Although the figures are disputed, a recent systematic review suggests that up to 60 million individuals could be infected. The major victims are the carriers of the hepatitis B surface antigen (), who become superinfected by the HDV, and intravenous drug users who are the group at highest infection usually results in liver damage. Genetic epidemiology is the study of the aetiology, distribution, and control of disease in groups of relatives and of inherited causes of disease in populations.3 From its parent disciplines of genetics and epidemiology, it has inherited the key elements of studying defined populations while investigating the roles of genes and the environment.

The perception of genetic diseases of the heart and vascular system has dramatically changed over the last 10 years. Next-generation sequencing and arrays with millions of single nucleotide polymorphisms allowed significant advances in the understanding of monogenic and polygenic diseases. The chapters in ‘Genetics of cardiovascular diseases’, written by outstanding experts in the field. Complex Genetics and Epidemiology The Chair group Complex Genetics and Epidemiology (CCGE) aims to create knowledge to help people live a longer, healthier and happier life. Much of their research is based on disentangling the genetic and environmental risk factors of chronic complex diseases.   Molecular Epidemiology Unit, Head, Centre for Epidemiology and Biostatistics, Faculty of Medicine and Health, The LIGHT Laboratories, University of Leeds, UK.

Professor Seymour : Over the last decade, the volume of research into the pathophysiology and genetics of pulmonary diseases has increased greatly. This has led to the development of new treatments and therapies for many diseases, including lung cancer, asthma and cystic fibrosis. This issue of the ERS Monograph comprehensively demonstrates the developments in respiratory medicine in recent years.

Medical Book Epidemiology of the Rheumatic Diseases The aim is to provide a comprehensive overview of published data world-wide and include such aspects as temporal and geographical trends in disease, contribution of genetic, constitutional and environmental factors to disease occurrence as well as the influence of traditional epidemiological risk factors such as age and gender. The infant mortality rate in these countries is 67, 84, 17, respectively (State of the World’s Children, ). In all these countries there is an accelerating demographic switch to non-communicable diseases, particularly among the urban populations (Verma and Bijarnia, ).Author: Ishwar C.
