Overview

Provides psychiatrists, oncologists, endocrinologists, pediatricians, and other health professionals with a thorough examination of the most current research on the role of melatonin in psychiatric and neoplastic disorders. This unique textbook and clinical reference is divided into four sections: • Evolutionary Development and Neurobiology of the Pineal Gland — discusses the synthesis of melatonin and the anatomy of the pineal gland• Melatonin in Psychiatric Disorders in Adults — pioneers in the field of pineology outline their findings on melatonin in the areas of adult depression, sleep disorders, chronobiological mood disorders, bipolar disorders, eating disorders, panic disorders, shift work maladaptation, and jet lag. • Melatonin in Children and Adolescents — examines the pineal gland and melatonin in healthy children and adolescents and reviews recent studies on serum and urine melatonin in major depression• Melatonin and Neoplastic Disorders — examines melatonin's potential as an antioxidant in cancer cells and its diagnostic and therapeutic value in oncology

The final chapter looks at the role that mindful meditation plays in increasing nocturnal serum melatonin and examines meditation's potential as an adjunct treatment for breast, prostate, and gastrointestinal tract cancers or as a preventive measure for high-risk individuals.

With the expert knowledge and current research presented in Melatonin in Psychiatric and Neoplastic Disorders, clinicians can provide accurate information to their patients on melatonin's role in health and disease.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Giridhar G. Reddy, MD (Rush University Medical Center)
Description: This book on the role of melatonin in psychiatric and neoplastic disorders is edited and written by prominent researchers in their respective fields from universities in the United States and Canada.
Purpose: The purpose is to review the current state of knowledge about the hormone melatonin and its potential role in psychiatric disorders such as depression, sleep and eating disorders, and the possible role of melatonin in neoplastic disorders.
Audience: The primary audience includes adult, child, and adolescent psychiatrists, oncologists, endocrinologists, pediatricians, and other health professionals.
Features: Appropriate figures, graphs, and tables are included to illustrate the text. The article references are extensive and up-to-date.
Assessment: Melatonin is a hormone secreted by the pineal gland. Receptors for melatonin are found not only in the brain but also in cells in other parts of the body. This book reviews the role melatonin plays in psychiatric disorders such as major depression, sleep disorders, chronobiological mood disorders, bipolar disorders, eating disorders, panic disorders, shift-work maladaptation, and jet lag. The possible role of melatonin in neoplastic disorders is also reviewed. Melatonin has been found to have antioxidant properties and thus could play a protective function in cancers of the breast, prostate, and gastrointestinal tract. This book provides a comprehensive update on this topic and is essential reading for all clinicians.
