An extensive body of evidence highlights the crucial importance of endocrine genetics. Examples range from human growth disorders and obesity to cancers of the prostate and breast. A pivotal part of the Modern Endocrinology Series, this book presents major biological studies underlining the significance of data obtained from knock-out mice, as well as from transgenic animals. Gene therapy and laboratory evaluation and screening of genetic endocrine diseases are covered, as are many of the classical endocrine diseases.
