The Ovary of Eve is a rich and often hilarious account of seventeenth- and eighteenth-century efforts to understand conception. In these early years of the Scientific Revolution, the most intelligent men and women of the day struggled to come to terms with the origins of new life, and one theory—preformation—sparked an intensely heated debate that continued for over a hundred years. Clara Pinto-Correia traces the history of this much maligned theory through the cultural capitals of Europe. "The most wonderfully eye-opening, or imagination-opening book, as amusing as it is instructive."—Mary Warnock, London Observer "[A] fascinating and often humorous study of a reproductive theory that flourished from the mid-17th century to the mid-18th century."—Nina C. Ayoub, Chronicle of Higher Education "More than just a good story, The Ovary of Eve is an object lesson about the history of science: Don't trust it. . . . Pinto-Correia says she wants to tell the story of history's losers. In doing so, she makes defeat sound more appealing than victory."—Emily Eakin, Nation. "A sparkling history of preformation as it once affected every facet of European culture."—Robert Taylor, Boston Globe

This volume explains how sonography is now used to explore all aspects of ovarian structure, physiology and disease. the ovary is perhaps the most active organ in the female body, and as such is particularly complex in its embrology, histology and steroidogenesis. It is derived from a range of tissue types, and represents the site of origin of a larger variety of primary and secondary cancers than any other organ. Because of this complexity, the use of diagnostic ultrasound is becoming increasingly important, not only in expanding the understanding of the ovary, but in enhancing the potential for early diagnosis of ovarian tumours.

This is a practically oriented text that provides authoritative guidance on those ovarian lesions that are likely to be encountered by the surgical pathologist. Its unique integration of clinical, gross, microscopic, immunohistochemical and molecular genetic features of ovarian tumors and related lesions provides comprehensive information at a glance. It should enable the surgical pathologist at all levels of experience to formulate a correct diagnosis in the reporting room or case conference.

Hardbound. Despite all the advancements and current understanding of the endocrine processes that regulate the female reproductive system, deranged menstrual and ovulatory function has remained a serious and unresolved problem for many women.This volume is the second based on a series of Conferences in Reproductive Medicine sponsored by Ferring Arzneimittel GmbH and covers new research findings and timely updates on ovarian physiology and pathophysiology, as well as on therapeutic options available for the management of PCO. It will be of value to investigators and clinicians who are active in the area of Reproductive Endocrinlogy.

The monograph introduces innate immunity as second authority in the ovary besides the endocrine system. Innate immunity appears to orchestrate follicular atresia, follicle rupture, follicle transformation into a corpus luteum (CL) and CL regression through nonsterile inflammation and tissue repair. The concept is new. It centres on cytokeratin-positive (CK+) cells being recognized as a potential nonlymphoid dendritic cell type (DC). Part I describes morphological aspects of immune privilege starting with active hamster ovary implants into the chicken chorioallantois membrane. Follicular atresia and follicle rupture correspond with mild and moderate tissue damage in ovaries of small rodents and rabbits. Superovulations cause severe tissue damage through intraovarian oocyte release with follicle wall remnants in oedema, rupture of vessel walls and thrombosis. The complement system and neuropeptides might play regulatory roles. Part IIa analyzes intact ovaries (cows, human) for the appearance of CK+ cells. In the foetal ovary, sex cords give rise to CK+ cells in primordial follicles. In the adult ovary, CK+ cells are absent in preantral follicles and reappear in mature and regressing follicles. In the CL of early development, steroidogenic CK+ cells build a peripheral zone in the previous granulosa cell layer, and uniformly distribute in the following stages. A microvessel-associated CK+ cell type is seldom found. Part IIb characterizes the morphology and function of CK+ cells in vitro. Isolated from human preovulatory follicles, the epithelioid CK+ granulosa cell subtype regulates TLR4 and CD14 at 36 h of treatment with oxidized lipoprotein (oxLDL, 150 mg/ml); nonapoptotic cell death and the increase of reactive oxygen species occur. In contrast, the CK-negative (CK-) granulosa cell type regulates the lectin-like oxLDL receptor 1 (LOX-1) and survival autophagy under oxLDL stimulation. Isolated from bovine CL, the epithelioid CK+ cell type 1 is disclosed as microvascular cell type with a single nonmotile cilium. The microvascular CK+ type strongly upregulates intercellular contacts under treatment with interferon- (IFN-). In the CK- cell type 5 of granulosa cell -like appearance, IFN- treatment supports cell proliferation, N-cadherin upregulation, and the dramatic increase in major histocompatibility complex II peptides (MHC II) by 80-fold compared to basal levels. Type 5 could have been conversed from the steroidogenic CK+ cell type. We summarize and conclude: CK+ granulosa cells express functionally active TLR4, which sense danger signals like oxidative stress in preovulatory follicles and trigger inflammatory and immunoregulatory pathways. The final outcome regulates follicle rupture and transformation into CL. Luteolysis could start by danger-sensing through the microvascular CK+ type 1 cells and the DC-like type 5 cells both sensitive to IFN-. The future will witness a novel strategy in the therapy of ovarian disorders like anovulations, luteal phase insufficiency, and autoimmune failures

Ovarian cancer is not only the commonest but also the most lethal gynaecological malignancy, partly because the majority of patients present with advanced disease. Nevertheless, the management of patients with ovarian neoplasms has changed substantially recently, with improved survival due to better screening strategies, major advances in chemotherapy and the constantly evolving role of surgery. Optimal patient care is best achieved by a multidisciplinary team, with imaging playing a pivotal role. The explosion of technological developments in imaging in recent years has meant that all members of the team should understand the potential applications, limitations and advantages of evolving imaging techniques. Each volume in Contemporary Issues in Cancer Imaging - A Multidisciplinary Approach is edited by an expert guest editor with contributions from all members of the multidisciplinary team, thus bringing together expertise from many specialties to promote the understanding and application of modern imaging in overall patient management.
