STATE OF THE ART OF THERAPEUTIC ENDOCRINOLOGY

endocrine system
Edited by Sameh Magdeldin .

The book in your hands respresents a concise research of an up-to-date frontier in 
therapeutic endocrinology. While the book title is no doubt broad, we selected limited 
related topics focusing on corticosteroid treatment and others. The book contains nine 
separate chapters.
State of the Art of Therapeutic Endocrinology is aimed at mainly those interested in 
physiology, endocrinology, medicine and pharmacology with different specialities 
such as biochemists, biologists, pharmacists, advanced graduate students and post 
graduate researchers.
Finally, I am grateful to the working team in InTech and all the experts who 
participated and contributed to this book with their valuable experience. Indeed, 
without their participation, this book would not come to light .
