More About This Book

Editorial Reviews

Doody Reviews
Reviewer: Ronald N. Cohen, MD (University of Chicago Medical Center)
Description: The authors discuss various advances in pituitary research, both basic and clinical, in this book based on a series of presentations given at a meeting held in Angra dos Reis, Brazil.
Purpose: The purpose is to present the latest findings in pituitary research. A variety of interesting topics are covered, but it should be kept in mind that this is not a comprehensive textbook of pituitary physiology and pathophysiology.
Audience: It is designed for endocrinologists, neuroendocrinologists, neurosurgeons, and researchers. It would be most helpful for those interested in basic and clinical pituitary research. It would be interesting, but potentially less suitable, for practicing endocrinologists.
Features: Basic topics such as the role of cytokines in pituitary tumorigenesis, pituitary cell cycle control, and neurotransmitter modulation of the GHRH-GH axis are covered. In addition, clinical research is presented, such as a discussion of hyperprolactinemia following ethanol administration, results from an observational study of pegvisomant in Argentina, and testing for GH deficiency in adults. The main strength of the book lies in the many excellent discussions written by experts in their respective fields. The major weakness is due to the nature of the book, a collection of unrelated presentations from a scientific meeting.
Assessment: This is an interesting collection of research findings from a recent pituitary meeting. It will be helpful particularly for those actively involved in pituitary research. It might also be interesting for individuals with a more passing interest in pituitary disorders, but there are other more comprehensive sources that might be more suitable for the latter audience.
