Basic Endocrinology: for Students of Pharmacy and Allied Health Sciences

File Size: 2.15 Mb

This textbook is primarily intended to provide undergraduate students of pharmacy with a clear and concise account of basic endocrine function and dysfunction, at a level sufficient to meet the requirements of first- or second year qualifying examinations. It is not intended to replace standard texts, but merely to serve as an accompaniment and convenient revision guide.

The text is based on a series of endocrinology lectures delivered to Pharmacy and Toxicology/ pharmacology students at The School of Pharmacy, University of London, and is presented in an original stylised format to allow for easier reading/learning; this approach has received a highly favourable response from students and colleagues here over the past ten years, and was the main impetus for undertaking this new book endeavour.

Basic Endocrinology for Students of Pharmacy and Allied Health Sciences is arranged into seven chapters: the first provides a basic introduction to the organization of the endocrine system and the concept of feedback regulation of hormone release. Subsequent sections deal, in turn, with the hormone secretions of each major endocrine gland, covering the mechanisms that control hormone release, the principal actions of the hormones in the body, the most commonly recognised clinical disorders that can arise when hormones are under or oversecreted, and how these disorders may be diagnosed and managed therapeutically. Where effects of hormones or major signs/symptoms of endocrine diseases are described, the text is separated into distinct sections for easier identification.

Chapter 1: Introduction and General Principles
Chapter 2: The Hypothalamus and Pituitary
Chapter 3: The Adrenal Gland
Chapter 4: The Thyroid Gland
Chapter 5: Endocrine Secretions of the Pancreas
Chapter 6: The Gonads and Reproduction
Chapter 7: The Parathyroid Glands, Vitamin D and Hormonal Control of Calcium Metabolism
