Christmas has been under attack for years, thanks to the evil Ice Queen and her mother, Emma Frostbite, the Empress of the North. With the power of a troll army and Nutcracker war machine behind them, the Queen and her mother have now set their sights on the last remaining Christmas stronghold, the twin cities of Feliz and Navidad. Now that Christmas bells, songs, and the spirit have been taken away for good, this just may be the end of Christmas in the world. Sixteen-year-old orphan Nicholas Claus isn’t about to let this happen. Fueled by an indomitable Christmas spirit, Nicholas embarks on a quest to seek help from a mysterious woman called Christmas Carol, stop the Ice Queen, and hopefully restore Christmas to its ultimate glory. While following clues hidden in a special snow globe, he is joined by allies as they attempt to find Christmas Carol and battle forces bent on destroying the holiday. As Nicholas and his friends set out on a hero’s mission to Tannenbaum, Feliz, Navidad, and the North Pole, he has no idea that his journey is about to lead him to receive the best Christmas gift ever. Santa Claus: The First Noel continues the tale of a young man’s quest to save Christmas from the destructive claws of an evil Ice Queen and her frosty mother.

The Annexins is focused on a specific family of calcium and membrane-binding proteins, annexins, ubiquitously spread within living organisms, including animals, plants and fungi. The volume covers important areas of annexinology. The characterization of structural-functional relationship within the annexin family of proteins, together with emerging transgenic animal models, provides an up-to-date overview of potential physiological roles of annexins. Growing evidence of participation of annexins in human diseases, called annexinopathies, related to disturbances in signal transduction, vesicular traffic, ion homeostasis and energy metabolism within the cell. The book will attract a broad scientific audience, not only scientists interested in annexins, but also others involved in multidisciplinary studies, as well as undergraduate and postgraduate students. It can be used in courses relating to special topics such as calcium homeostasis, calcium-binding proteins, membrane structure and transport properties, various signal transduction pathways, and membrane trafficking.

For the past 30 years I have been teaching lipid biochemistry to'inedical students, graduate students, and undergraduate students. The major topics covered in my courses were fatty acids, prostaglandins, leukotrienes, phospholipids, glyco lipids, triacylglycerols, cholesterol, bile acids, and plasma lipoproteins. Empha sis was placed on the regulation and disorders of lipid metabolism. The latter included hyperlipidemias, atherosclerosis, and alcohol-induced liver damage. In this volume, I have chosen to focus on the disorders of lipid metabolism at a level appropriate both for medical students and for graduate and undergradu ate students majoring in the biological sciences. The biochemistry, nutrition, genetics, and cell biology aspects of lipids and lipid metabolism will be covered as they relate to lipid disorders. I am not aware of any textbook that integrates the disorders of lipid metabolism in this manner. Chapter 1 includes a brief discussion of the basic structures, properties, and metabolism of lipids. This chapter is not very detailed, since the material covered is available in basic textbooks on biochemistry. The major fpcus of this volume is the various lipid disorders, with emphasis on polyunsaturated fatty acids, the molecular biology and pathogenesis of the hyperlipidemias, dietary and drug therapy for the hyperlipidemias, and alcohol-induced liver damage. The material presented has been obtained from several textbooks on biochemistry and from a variety of recent articles in the scientific literature.

This book covers basic aspects of the molecular biology, biochemistry and pharmacology of the plasminogen-plasmin (fibrinolytic) system. Individual chapters, written by well-known experts in the field, are devoted to plasminogen and its activation, the tissue-type plasminogen activator (tPA), the urinary-type-plasminogen activator (uPA), inhibitors of the fibrinolytic system, and the assembly of fibrinolytic constituents on cell surfaces. The major part of the book deals with the therapeutic use of thrombolytic agents in myocardial infarction, deep venous thrombosis, pulmonary embolism, peripheral arterial occlusions and stroke. The newest thrombolytic agents are discussed in depth. Results of major clinical trials up to the end of 1999 are critically evaluated. The volume is a modern up-to-date presentation of the entire field of the treatment of arterial and venous thromboses with thrombolytic agents.

Fibrinolysis in Disease reviews the state of the art of basic and clinical aspects of the fibrinolytic enzyme system. The text, authored by outstanding and internationally known investigators, is presented in two books. The Malignant Process, Interventions in Thrombogenic Mechanisms, and Novel Treatment Modalities discusses the molecular biology of the system's key components and their fundamental roles in a variety of thrombotic and metabolic disorders. Molecular and Hemovascular Aspects of Fybrinolysis presents the latest findings and concepts of the association between plasminogen activator (u-PA) overexpression and abnormal growth regulation in a variety of solid tumors and in leukemia. One chapter deals with various successful interventions in thrombogenic mechanisms, ranging from exercise and diet to anticoagulants and direct and indirect thrombolytic agents. It concludes with a projection of exciting, novel treatment modalities in thrombotic and malignant diseases.

Investigation of the pharmacokinetics and metabolism of human proteins has escalated over the last two decades because of the use of recombinant human proteins as therapeutic agents. In addition, the development and improvement of analytical techniques enabling the detection of minute quantities of proteins in biological matrices have aided this process. In assembling this volume, we sought to provide a state-of-the-art as sessment of the pharmacokinetics and metabolism of protein therapeutics through complete reviews of selected examples. A comprehensive review of all protein therapeutics was not attempted; the majority -of the therapeutic protein classes and crucial scientific issues have been addressed, however. Therefore, we are confident that this volume will provide a useful reference for scientists in this field. The volume has been divided into two general parts. The first part (Chapters 1-3) is composed of general reviews of topics of importance in pharmacokinetic/metabolism studies of proteins: goals and analytical meth odologies, effects of binding proteins, and effects of antibody induction, respectively. The second part (Chapters 4-8) consists of specific, detailed reviews by therapeutic protein class: growth factors and hormones, cyto kines, cardiovascular proteins, hematopoietic proteins, and antibodies, respectively. The editors are grateful to the contributors for the patience, personal sacrifice and perseverance required to complete this volume. BoDDE L. FERRAIOLO MARJORIE A. MOHLER CAROL A.
