This Book Will Be Essential for All Endocrinologists, Diabetologists, Pediatricians, and Internists Treating "Childhood" Diabetes Patients. This volume brings together an international panel of experts who review the state-of-the-art in the discovery and application of knowledge relative to Type I diabetes mellitus, including its etiology and current approaches to therapy. It provides an overview of the disease process from its beginnings at the level of molecular genetic predisposition, to its manifestations at the total clinical level. This valuable information can be used to treat the disease in all of its manifestations, including future directions to predict, prevent and to cure. Type I Diabetes: Etiology and Treatment provides a framework for future investigation for basic and clinical scientists and fellows involved in this field and will be of interest to pediatric endocrinologists, diabetologists, pediatricians, internists, and family physicians.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Robert Jay Sobel, M.D.(Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine)
Description: This book represents a remarkably complete overview of the state-of-the-art in both the clinical management of type 1 diabetes and the ongoing research working towards improved treatment, prevention, and cure.
Purpose: According to the author, the aim of this book is to make available a fusion of the contemporary investigational and practical issues of this disease. For those involved in the research and treatment of patients with type 1 diabetes, this represents a uniquely accessible way to make sure they have an up-to-date, working knowledge of a wide-ranging spectrum of issues.
Audience: This book is appropriate for endocrinologists both in practice and in training, and researchers involved in the many areas that interface with type 1 diabetes.
Features: The first section provides a sound discussion of our understanding of the etiology of the disease, providing the reader with an excellent working knowledge to assess possible future prevention strategies. The clinical chapters are well organized, authored by known experts, and provide excellent summaries of cutting edge management. The final chapters devoted to islet transplantation and the relevant scientific issues are timely and enlightening. All chapters are well referenced and overlap of issues is kept to a reasonable minimum. Minor typographical errors are present at low level.
Assessment: This entry in the Contemporary Endocrinology series represents a uniquely accessible overview of the current scientific and clinical frontiers relevant to type 1 diabetes mellitus. By providing an understanding of where immunological knowledge will likely lead and what current therapy should entail, this book provides an opportunity for both clinical and research specialists to better understand each other's fields.
