The Atlas of Clinical Andrology describes both normal and abnormal reproductive physiology, and summarizes recent research in the fields of endocrinology, immunoandrology, molecular andrology, and ART. Focusing on the cutting edge of recent knowledge and advances in clinical andrology, it incorporates the latest clinical research findings and makes them accessible to clinicians who need this essential information for the most effective application of assisted reproductive techniques.
Key features include:
* more than 100 colour illustrations and photographs, including sperm ultrastructure, using transmission and scanning electron microscopy and atomic force microscopy
* summaries of important information in easy-to-understand tables and algorithms
* discussions of advances in molecular biology as applied to genetic engineering, stem cell physiology and cloning for therapeutic purposes.
A comprehensive and well-referenced resource, this atlas bridges the gap between basic and clinical science, and is essential reading for andrologists, urologists, clinicians and technicians working in assisted reproduction laboratories.
