Written primarily for medical students, but also of use to graduates and undergraduates, this textbook provides thorough, balanced, and well-illustrated coverage of endocrine physiology. The scope is broad, ranging from molecular mechanisms of hormone action to the clinical assessment of endocrine function. Yet the book maintains a clear focus on basic endocrine functions, using clinical examples to throw light on normal physiology and its regulation. It was developed from a course given at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical School, which has a strong tradition in endocrinology. The second edition has been thoroughly updated, and the discussion of neuroendocrinology has been reworked. There is new material on a diversity of topics, including neuroendocrine and immune system relationships, adrenergic receptors and their interaction with G proteins, signal transduction by the tyrosine kinase family of cell surface receptors, immunometric assays, clinical evaluation of anterior pituitary hormone levels, functions of activin, hypercalcemia of pregnancy, molecular mechanisms of adrenal steroid action, 1-84 PTH, calcitonin, and the regulation of bone remodelling.

Review:


Praise for previous editions:


"This new and cohesive offering for beginning medical students has a number of important attributes--brevity, accuracy, readability, minimal use of jargon, an absence of excessive enthusiasm for eponyms.... [This book] is an excellent and scholarly introduction to endocrinology...I give it the highest marks over competing textbooks because of its systematic, concise, and accurate treatment of all major concepts." --The New England Journal of Medicine


"It is generously illustrated by good-quality black and white drawings which have been well-chosen to complement the text. The standard of writing is generally very good and I found it easy to read. I would have no hesitation in recommending this book, not only to students, but also to postgraduates--clinical and non-clinical--who want an accessible and up-to-date whistle-stop tour of endocrinology." --The Endocrinologist


"The current research emphasis on molecular endocrinology is reflected appropriately in the revision and expansion of several sections. The expertise of the contributors in their field is evident throughout." --Experimental Physiology
