Editorial Reviews

Presentations by invited speakers at the 6th European Symposium on Metabolism. The volume is a comprehensive treatise on the three most important aspects of the human metabolism, and contains selected aspects of new developments on the therapy of the plurimetabolic syndrome, or insulin resistance syndrome. Following an opening lecture on "Cholesterol: 80 Years Since St. Petersburg" (P. Avogaro) and the Morgagni lecture on "Remnant Lipoprotein Metabolism" (S. Eisenberg), the remainder of the volume is divided into sections on epidemiology/ pathogenesis of the plurimetabolic syndrome, microalbuminuria/lipids and the plurimetabolic syndrome, hemostasis and hemorheology, and therapy of the plurimetabolic syndrome. No index. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
