Summary It has become increasingly apparent that manipulations in nutrition -- exogenous or endogenous -- may be involved in the pathogenesis of many disease states ranging from metabolic disorders, such as diabetes and obesity, to the prime killer diseases, such as cancer and cardiovascular disease. This timely, authoritative reference examines several recent, major developments in the field of nutritional pathology, providing enhanced, current understanding of the role that altered or disturbed nutrition plays in the pathogenesis of disease. Approaching the effects of nutrition from a molecular biology perspective, Nutritional Pathology investigates specific pathological aspects of diet and dietary imbalances, including effects of malnutrition on pancreatic disease, cardiovascular disease, and the central nervous system ... the role of nutrition in drug metabolism and toxicity ... deficiencies in choline, tryptophan, and dietary fibers ... consequences of drug-induced malnutrition ... and much more. Well illustrated and extensively referenced for easy access to the broad expansion of research in this area, Nutritional Pathology will serve as an important resource for all researchers involved in this advancing science, including pathologists, nutritionists, biochemists, cell biologists, toxicologists, epidemiologists, pharmacologists, and oncologists. Moreover, this volume is an essential information source for graduate students in pathology, nutrition, and biochemistry.
