The first thorough review of cyclooxygenase inhibitors, including their toxicity mechanisms and toxicopathological risks Cyclooxygenases (COXs) are enzymes responsible for the formation of an important class of biological mediators called prostanoids. Prostanoids such as prostaglandins mediate inflammatory and anaphylactic reactions. For those suffering from inflammation and pain, the pharmacological inhibition of COXs, with non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), such as ibuprofen, can provide relief. Yet the use of NSAIDs can trigger toxicological effects as well, leading to potential health risks. Comparative Pathophysiology and Toxicology of Cyclooxygenases provides a comprehensive overview of how COX inhibitors affect various bodily systems, specifically the toxicity mechanisms triggered when the COX enzyme is inhibited. The book provides an introduction to the discovery of cyclooxygenases, their use as therapeutic agents, as well as an historical perspective. Shedding light on the differences in expression, pathophysiology, and toxicology of COX inhibitors across species, the book offers a systematic examination of the effects and pathophysiology of COX inhibitors and their mechanisms of toxicity, beginning with the GI tract. Subsequent chapters cover: The pathophysiology of COX inhibition on bone, tendon, and ligament healing COX inhibitors and renal system pathophysiology and mechanisms of toxicity The pathophysiologic role of COX inhibition in the ocular system COX inhibition and the respiratory and cardiovascular systems The book also sheds light on the latest research devoted to developing COX inhibitors with no adverse side-effects. The first book to offer a thorough comparative look at the toxicological effects of COX inhibitors throughout the body, this invaluable resource will help advance the research and development of safer and more effective COX drugs.

Praise for Business Continuity Management: Building an Effective Incident Management Plan «In Business Continuity Management, Blyth has once again produced a comprehensive guide to the subject. Whether a multinational organization looking to counter the threat of global terrorism or a local business planning against loss of sensitive data, this book provides a well structured and useful guide to construction and implementation of Incident Management Plans. Blyth provides not only the theory and background to his subject but also invaluable template guidelines for many of the incidents which we all should prepare for.» —Joe Pugh, Head of European Project Management, Panasonic «Business Continuity Management: Building an Effective Management Plan very effectively details how and what a company should include in composing and executing a crisis management plan. This book is a must read for both laymen and experts alike because it itemizes the most relevant facts within silos that are comprehensive enough for the expert to find value in, yet written in a manner that a layman can derive tangible value. The incident response guidelines, broken down by the event type, provide an extremely useful tool that bring immediate value to the reader.» —Robert G. Molina Jr., Global Security ManagerLyondellBasell «For a business of any consequence to not have a business continuity plan is like a Boy Scout not having a first aid kit. Advanced preparation and planning enable a business to deal with a crisis and sooner or later every business will face a crisis of some nature. Author Michael Blyth hits the nail on the head with his well organized book that weaves together business continuity planning, incident management, and dealing with risks.» —John P. Chamberlain, Executive Director ESC «Mike Blyth has produced another book, which is thought-provoking and a clear example of the multilayered guidelines that companies should be encouraged to incorporate into their BCP. A worthy read for anyone in business, irrespective of managerial level. The business model and structure achieved will help determine the time and shape of any crisis. The individual knowledge and understanding so achieved, interlinked with a robust BCP, will determine the optimum time and cost to recover from crisis.» —Stephen Ackroyd, BMI Security Manager, Middle East/Africa/Asia «In the global economy, the guidelines presented by Michael Blyth are an essential component for doing business worldwide. He has thought of every angle. In ultra-sensitive environments like Afghanistan, his recommendations will be widely applied.» —Dr. Thomas Stauffer, President/CEO, American University of Afghanistan
