Abstract

This book deals with the interrelationships between the morphological, biochemical and genetic aspects of the homeostatic mechanisms in man.

The first part includes a review of these homeostatic mechanisms in a “steady state.” The close interdependence of ultrastructural organization, chromosomal mechanics and biochemical function is illustrated by a description of many inborn errors of metabolism. The vascular and endocrinological homeostasis, the function of liver and kidney, and the importance of the reticulo-endothelial system and the connective tissue are further delineated. The functions of the lungs, the nervous system, the muscle mass and the bones are not discussed.

The second part is a survey of cancer, radiation, deficiency diseases and aging as challengers to the homeostatic mechanisms.

A list of recent references and of pertinent motion pictures is given at the end of each chapter.
