    What is the optimal design and fixation of the implants we use for orthopedic reconstructions? What is the gold standard for the management of patients requiring implants? Is there scope for improvement still further? Huge efforts have been made both by research scientists in orthopedics and the implant industry to furthering the options available for arthroplasty without necessarily considering the cost-effectiveness of this research to clinical outcomes. It has also become apparent that theoretical and laboratory studies do not always match the results of long-term clinical studies of which there regretfully few of sufficient quality. The Editor and his carefully chosen selection of contributors critically evaluate data from basic science, experimental in vivo and in vitro biological and mechanical models, autopsy specimens and long-term clinical studies to answer these questions. Bone-Implant Interface in Orthopedic Surgery: Basic Science to Clinical Applications focuses on the bone-orthopedic implant interface in general and will be useful both for the novice who seeks a quick introduction to this specific topic and for more experienced surgeons who seek an in depth critical review of current practices.

    Our bones are complex and beautiful structures that highlight that Nature is a masterful materials scientist. These composite structures of minerals, proteins, and cells are capable of maintaining a remarkable, ever-changing balance based on an individual's biomechanical needs. Growing, running, jumping, sitting, sleeping -- all of our actions and inactions are chronicled and inform the processes of new bone formation and old bone resorption. The hierarchical microstructure, building from calcium phosphate nanocrystals embedded in collagen fibers, underscores the importance of mineral and organic components that synergistically contribute to the toughness of bone needed daily. Unfortunately, due to trauma or disease, at times our bones fail and are unable to heal themselves. It is for these instances that the field of Regenerative Medicine works to develop therapies built on expertise from materials science, engineering, and medical fields. Using protein engineering and bone biology as the starting foundation, my thesis work has focused on the development of two protein-engineered biomaterials for the improvement of regenerative medicine therapies focused on osseointegration of implants and bone regeneration. Engineered protein biomaterials harness the extensive toolkit provided to us by Nature, which includes the machinery to synthesize protein materials and myriad functional pieces to mix and match in our novel designs. With these tools I've helped develop an engineered elastin-like protein to be a photocrosslinkable, cell-adhesive, thin-film coating to improve the osseointegration of implants used to stabilize fractures. The material demonstrates increased speed and extent of cell attachment to coated surfaces, serving as proof of principle for use of this material in stimulating integration of coated implants through improved implant-cell interactions. Focusing my attention on non-healing skeletal defects, I worked with MITCH, our Mixing-Induced, Two-Component Hydrogel, to develop it for stem cell delivery and bone regeneration applications. MITCH employs molecular recognition of a peptide domain binding pair for gentle, on-demand, 3D cell encapsulation at constant physiological conditions. Further using this binding strategy to emulate the intimate interface between organic and mineral phases in native bone by crosslinking mineral nanoparticles into the hydrogel network via specific molecular interactions, I created a material capable of delivering adipose-derived stem cells and stimulating fast bone regeneration in critical-size calvarial defects. Regenerative medicine brings together the renewing power of stem cells and the rational design of biomimetic niches to help the body heal when it is incapable of doing so without assistance. Taken together, this body of work validates the strategy of designing protein-engineered biomaterials by taking cues from Nature to further the development of regenerative medicine therapies, improving their success and widespread adoption.

    In Borderline Personality and Mood Disorders: Comorbidity and Controversy, a panel of distinguished experts reviews the last two decades of progress in scientific inquiry about the relationship between mood and personality disorders and the influence of this empirical data on our ways of conceptualizing and treating them. This comprehensive title opens with an introduction defining general trends both influencing the expansion of the mood disorder spectrum and undermining clinical recognition and focus on personality disorders. The overlaps and differences between MDD and BPD in phenomenology and biological markers are then reviewed, followed by a review of the overlaps and distinctions between more atypical mood disorder variants. Further chapters review the current state of thinking on the distinctions between bipolar disorder and BPD, with attention to problems of misdiagnosis and use of clinical vignettes to illustrate important distinguishing features. Two models explaining the relationship between mood, temperament, and personality are offered, followed by a review of the literature on risk factors and early signs of BPD and mood disorders in childhood through young adulthood as well as a review of the longitudinal studies on BPD and mood disorders. The last segment of the book includes three chapters on treatment. The book closes with a conclusion with a synthesis of the current status of thinking on the relationship between mood and borderline personality disorder. An invaluable contribution to the literature, Borderline Personality and Mood Disorders: Comorbidity and Controversy insightfully addresses the mood and personality disorders realms of psychiatry and outlines that it has moved away from contentious debate and toward the possibility of synthesis, providing increasing clarity on the relationship between mood and personality to inform improvements in clinical management of the convergence of these psychiatric domains in common practice.

    Multiple Myeloma (MM) is the second most common type of blood cancer, resulting from an overproduction of cancerous infection-fighting white blood cells, known as plasma cells. Plasma cells are a crucial part of the immune system responsible for the production of antibodies. Bortezomib is a promising anticancer drug targeting the proteasome. This proteasome inhibitor induces cell stress and apoptosis in the cancer cells. While multiple mechanisms are likely to be involved, proteasome inhibition may prevent the degradation of pro-apoptotic factors, permitting activation of programmed cell death in neoplastic cells dependent upon the suppression of proapoptotic pathways. This monograph on bortezomib is a valuable source of information for researchers and clinicians from the fields of oncology and pharmacology, working either in academia or the pharmaceutical industry.

    The extremely potent substance botulinum neurotoxin (BoNT) has attracted much interest in diverse fields. Originally identified as cause for the rare but deadly disease botulism, military and terrorist intended to misuse this sophisticated molecule as biological weapon. This caused its classification as select agent category A by the Centers for Diseases Control and Prevention and the listing in the Biological and Toxin Weapons Convention. Later, the civilian use of BoNT as long acting peripheral muscle relaxant has turned this molecule into an indispensable pharmaceutical world wide with annual revenues >$1.5 billion.

    This is a single-authored book written by a world-class neuroradiologist with extensive experience in traumatic brain injury (TBI). It features six graphic-intense chapters depicting and expounding upon the complexity of TBI. Culled from nearly three decades of studying civilian TBI and five years of intensive study of TBI sustained from combat, terrorism, and natural disasters, this work is an exhaustive and innovative authority on the current approaches and applications of civilian and combat TBI. The text is sectored into six chapters based on pathophysiology, each augmented with numerous images and illustrations. The book gives special attention to neuroimaging, but is reinforced with relevant clinical correlation. This monograph is unique because it is first in class as an omnibus for the radiologist, neurologist, neurosurgeon, maxillofacial surgeon, emergency physician, pediatrician, ophthalmologist, and the rehabilitation team.

    With an annual rate of more than 12 million global diagnoses and 7.6 million deaths, the societal and economic burden of cancer cannot be overstated. Brain metastases are the most common malignant tumors of the central nervous system, yet their incidence appears to be increasing in spite of the advancement of cancer therapies. While much is known about primary cancers (including primary brain tumors), less work has been done to uncover the roots of metastatic disease. This volume fills that gap, serving as the first reference to focus primarily on the link between primary cancers and brain metastases. This link is explored for the most common cancer types -- lung, breast, and melanoma. Additionally, biological background as well as therapy for CNS metastases is addressed. Age and gender related trends are also discussed, as is the use of biomarkers for early detection.

    "This introduction to the structure of the central nervous system demonstrates that the best way to learn how the brain is put together is to understand something about why. It explains why the brain is put together as it is by describing basic functions and key aspects of its evolution and development. This approach makes the structure of the brain and spinal cord more comprehensible as well as more interesting and memorable. The book offers a detailed outline of the neuroanatomy of vertebrates, especially mammals, that equips students for further explorations of the field. Gaining familiarity with neuroanatomy requires multiple exposures to the material with many incremental additions and reviews. Thus the early chapters of this book tell the story of the brain's origins in a first run-through of the entire system; this is followed by other such surveys in succeeding chapters, each from a different angle. The book proceeds from basic aspects of nerve cells and their physiology to the evolutionary beginnings of the nervous system to differentiation and development, motor and sensory systems, and the structure and function of the main parts of the brain. Along the way, it makes enlightening connections to evolutionary history and individual development. Brain Structure and Its Origins can be used for advanced undergraduate or beginning graduate classes in neuroscience, biology, psychology, and related fields, or as a reference for researchers and others who want to know more about the brain." -- Publisher's description.

    Brain Theory From A Circuits And Systems Perspective offers a theory of human consciousness as a natural result of pulsating neurons and synapses within a complex circuit. The book summarizes the electrical, as opposed to the chemical, nature of a brain, and so moves away from customary molecular biology- and biochemistry-focused explanations for consciousness. The book goes beyond the usual structures of artificial neural networks; employing first principles, a particular physical system is synthesized for conscious short term memory, as well as for associative (subconsciously edited) long term memory. It pursues the search for deeper computational power: Where ordinary concepts of logic fail to explain inspired choices concerning artistic appraisal, truth judgment, and understanding, pulsating qubit logic unleashes a fresh avenue for connectivity. Neuroquantology is discussed, including electron tunneling as a regulator of neural actions, and proposed quantum computing within microtubules. This thought provoking work led the author to reveal neurons with qubit properties, or simulated qubits. Simulated qubits do not require a coherent quantum system, and so remain robust for massively parallel controlled toggling and probabilistic computations. Brain Theory From A Circuits And Systems Perspective is supported with physical circuit examples, end-of-chapter exercises, and neuron simulation experiments, and will be valuable to anyone interested in neuro-circuits, neuro-systems and qubits.

    This volume summarizes the ethical, social and cultural contexts of interfacing brains and computers. It is intended for the interdisciplinary community of BCI stakeholders. Insofar, engineers, neuroscientists, psychologists, physicians, care-givers and also users and their relatives are concerned. For about the last twenty years brain-computer-interfaces (BCIs) have been investigated with increasing intensity and have in principle shown their potential to be useful tools in diagnostics, rehabilitation and assistive technology. The central promise of BCI technology is enabling severely impaired people in mobility, grasping, communication, and entertainment. Successful applications are for instance communication devices enabling locked-in patients in staying in contact with their environment, or prostheses enabling paralysed people in reaching and grasping. In addition to this, it serves as an introduction to the whole field of BCI for any interested reader. -- Provided by publisher.

    In recent years, the advent of MRI technology seems to have unlocked the secrets of the human mind, revealing the sources of our deepest desires, intentions, and fears. In this book, the authors argue that the explanatory power of brain scans in particular and neuroscience more generally has been vastly overestimated. Although acknowledging its tremendous potential, they believe that the overzealous application of the burgeoning field of brain science has put innocent people in jail, prevented addicts from healing themselves, and undermined notions of free will and responsibility.

    "Bratton's Family Medicine Board Review, Fourth Edition, is a directed review of important topics that typically appear on American Board of Family Medicine (ABFM) in-training examinations, board certification examinations, and recertification examinations. This material is not intended for a comprehensive review but, instead, should direct the examinee to areas of weakness that may need further review. Family medicine is a broad field, and to provide a complete, comprehensive review of all topics that may be covered is extremely time consuming if not impossible. Several other courses attempt to provide this type of review; however, this book is more abbreviated and focuses on topics that are commonly found on board examinations. Adequate preparation for any test is the key to success and rewarding results. Given this, we all know the importance of practice tests and the benefits of testing our knowledge base before the actual examination. This review book is structured for the examinee with limited time and resources for review and should be used only by those individuals with an established foundation of knowledge within the field of family medicine. Its primary purpose is to identify areas of weakness that can be improved on"--Provided by publisher.

    The volume raises attention to the need of a completely new approach to breast cancer based on the knowledge collected on early breast cancer in the past two decades. The chapters are contributed by experts of all the fields participating in the clinical research and care of breast cancer. The practical importance of such a book is underlined by the increasing number of breast cancer cases, and also the increasing proportion of early stage-cases. The ultimate goal of the book is to point to the heterogeneous nature of the disease which is more striking and has more importance in care at the very early stages than at the more advanced stages. The book recommends the utilisation of all the information provided by multimodality imaging and special pathological methods, a new classification system and therapeutic guidelines since early breast cancers should not be treated based on experience obtained with palpable tumors. No similar book has been yet released to the market. The book is written for all the members of the team participating in the diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer (radiologists, pathologists, surgeons, clinical and radiation oncologists), but may be useful for medical students and residents too. The chapters are illustrated with didactic pictures, and special emphasis is given to provide a peep into the practice of the special procedures for the careful examination and individualized therapy of each case.

    The theory of the sick lobe states that breast carcinoma is a lobar disease developing most often within a single lobe, meaning that, at an early stage, breast carcinoma occupies a limited, anatomically well-defined portion of the breast. This theory unites observed patterns from the genetic, developmental and morphological perspectives, into an overall concept. "Breast Cancer: A Lobar Disease," presents this hypothesis and its consequences. The body of evidence, pro and contra, generated in recent years will be presented in this volume. The chapters, all authored by leading experts.

    Breast Cancer: A New Era in Management provides a compendium of succinct analysis of the many facets involved in the present day management of the breast cancer patient. The text provides the clinician or student with basic foundational knowledge in the rapidly expanding areas of expertise that are required for both the diagnosis and treatment of the breast cancer patient. Each topic, whether diagnostic or therapeutic, is presented in a straightforward fashion incorporating as part of each topic a description of the historical clinical landmarks leading to the present day, their present day position in the care of the breast patient, and finally, an assessment of possible future application and adaptation in clinical practice. Emphasis is placed on clear and concise explanations of each topic presented in stepwise fashion from fundamental elements to the more complex. Breast Cancer: A New Era in Management will act as a ready reference for the practicing surgeon and students seeking practical information on a particular clinical topic or scenario.

    The large and increasing burden of breast cancer demands innovative research and bold new approaches to uncover the intricate combination of factors inside and outside the body that lead to the disease. Based on our review of the state of the science, current programs and investments by federal agencies and nongovernmental organizations, and relevant communication efforts and policies, the IBCERCC offers seven recommendations to highlight the urgent need for coordinated, targeted efforts to identify and mitigate the environmental causes of breast cancer.

    Breast Cancer Biology for the Radiation Oncologist is the first textbook of its kind devoted to describing the biological complexities of breast cancer in a way that is relevant to the radiation oncologist. Radiation Oncology has long treated breast cancer as a single biological entity, with all treatment decisions being based on clinical and pathologic risk factors. We are now beginning to understand that biological subtypes of breast cancer may have different risks of recurrence as well as different intrinsic sensitivity to radiotherapy. Multi-gene arrays that have for years been used to predict the risk of distant recurrence and the value of systemic chemotherapy may also have utility in predicting the risk of local recurrence. Additionally, the targeted agents used to treat breast cancer may interact with radiotherapy in ways that can be beneficial or undesirable. All of these emerging issues of central importance to radiation oncologists are extensively discussed in this book, and practical treatment recommendations based on available clinical evidence are presented whenever possible.

    This volume comprehensively covers recent prrogress in breast cancer research. In an effort to successfully treat breast cancer, it is imperative to fully understand the disease with all its heterogeneity ; understand the factors that influence the metastasis of breast cancer to distant organs making it lethal and understand the underlying processes that lead to the phenomenon of drug-resistance making the disease particularly incurable. The book explores all of these issues, including the phenomenon of epithelial-mesenchymal-transition, cancer stem cells as well as microRNAs in an attempt to better understand the disease in connection to its heterogeneity, metastasis, drug-resistance as well as to propose novel signaling pathways for therapeutic intervention. The profiling of tumors to molecularly classify breast cancers is also investigated so that customized targeted therapies can be developed -- source other than Library of Congress.

    "Elastography is a noninvasive imaging technique that detects tumors based on their stiffness compared to normal tissue. It uses ultrasound technology and can be performed during an ultrasound examination of the breast. It can dramatically reduce the number of breast biopsies performed. This book introduces the techniques of breast elastography followed by a detailed description for each of the techniques, highlighting their pros and cons. This is followed by a section on how to perform each of the techniques. The third section discusses the methods of interpretation for each technique, and the final section presents cases studies highlighting the pros and cons of each technique and how to avoid pitfalls in interpretation. It is written to appeal to the beginner as well as the experienced user"--Provided by publisher.

    In our complex, fast changing society, health is strongly influenced by the continuously changing interactions between organisations and their employees. Three major fields contribute to health-oriented improvements of these interactions: occupational health, organizational health and public health. As currently only partial links exist amongst these fields, the book aims to explore potential synergies more systematically. Considering the high mental and social demands in a service and knowledge sector economy, the first part of the book focuses on work-related psychosocial factors. As a large proportion of inequalities in health in developed countries can be explained by inequalities in working conditions, those psychosocial factors with a particularly high public health impact are highlighted. As addressing these psychosocial factors requires to involve the organization as the key change agent, the second part covers approaches to improve public health through organizational level health interventions. The last section takes a look into the future of occupational, organizational and public health: what are the future challenges regarding occupational health and how can they be tackled within and beyond the organizational level. Overall, this integrating book will help to broaden the evidence-base, legitimacy and efficacy of occupational- and organizational-level health interventions and thus increase their public health impact.

    In Brief Dynamic Therapy, Hanna Levenson discusses the history, theory, and practice of this approach. Brief dynamic therapy is a time-efficient treatment in which the therapist maintains a focus on specific client issues and goals, all within a basic psychodynamic conceptual framework. Many different approaches fit this general definition, but each shares the brief dynamic characteristics of time management, defined focus, circumscribed goals, active therapist participation, rapid assessment, prompt intervention, an awareness of unconscious processes, and techniques that quickly foster a strong alliance with the client. Dr. Levenson discusses the approach of brief dynamic therapy in general, but focuses on one example, time-limited dynamic psychotherapy (TLDP), to give readers a richer understanding of this popular model. Time-limited dynamic psychotherapy is an integrative approach that uses recent developments in attachment theory, interpersonal neurobiology, affective - experiential learning, and systems orientations to help clients with long-standing, dysfunctional ways of relating to others. It provides a specialized method for delineating the client's cyclical maladaptive interpersonal pattern that can lead to symptoms like depression and anxiety. This approach privileges empathic attunement and awareness of moment-to-moment affective shifts within the client, and transactions between the client and therapist. In this book, the author presents and explores this integrative, culturally-sensitive approach, its theory, history, the therapy process, primary change mechanisms, empirical basis, and future developments. This essential primer, amply illustrated with detailed case examples, is perfect for graduate students studying theories of therapy and counseling as well as for seasoned practitioners interested in learning how to do focused, depth work. -- Provided by publisher.

    This book offers a clinical guide that brings together a broad range of brief interventions and their applications in treating psychosis. It describes two core approaches that can narrow the current, substantial gap between the need for psychotherapeutic interventions for all individuals suffering from psychosis, and the limited mental health resources available. The first approach involves utilizing the standard therapeutic modalities in the context of routine clinical interactions after adapting them into brief and effective formats. To that end, the book brings in experts on various psychotherapeutic modalities, who discuss how their particular modality could be adapted to more effectively fit into the existing system of care delivery. The second approach, addressed in detail, is to extend the availability of these brief interventions by utilizing the circle of providers as well as the social circle of the clients so that these interventions can be provided in a coordinated and complementary manner by psychiatrists, psychologists, clinical social workers, case managers, peer support specialists and other providers on the one hand, and by family members, friends, social and religious institutions on the other.

    Like other international jurisdictions, the Canadian health sector faces significant demands for change and improvement to meet the needs of the 21st Century. To achieve that goal, highly sophisticated and capable leaders are required across all dimensions of the health system. Bringing Leadership to Life in Health: LEADS in a Caring Environment examines the essence of leadership itself and what it means to be a leader in today's world. The authors describe key challenges that demand reform in the health sector, examine why better leadership is the source code for better system performance, and look at the issues that stand in the way of getting that leadership. This book describes the five domains of the Caring Environment capabilities framework: Lead Self, Engage Others, Achieve Results, Develop Coalitions, and Systems Transformation. Bringing Leadership to Life in Health: LEADS in a Caring Environment is a simple, easily accessible, and research informed book which will explain the LEADS in a Caring Environment capabilities framework that has been adopted across Canada as the foundation for health leadership talent management. This book will illustrate this framework through supportive research, relevant stories solicited from health leaders at all levels as well as the inclusion of "learning moments" to help the readers reflect on their own experiences.

    The nervous system is comprised of a complex network of neurons that are connected by specialized structures called synapses. Each synapse contains a myriad of proteins that fulfill different functions, ranging from the release and reception of neurotransmitters to the maintenance and strengthening of the signals between neurons. Given the multitude of proteins present at the synapse, one question is how do they arrive and remain there? In my thesis, I use Caenorhabditis elegans to explore the cellular processes that contribute to the proper localization of important presynaptic proteins. In the first part of my thesis, I explored how presynaptic proteins are properly localized to the signal-sending process, called the axon, and excluded from the signal receiving process, called the dendrite. In the motor neuron DA9, synaptic vesicles localize in a stereotyped region of the axon, but in cdk-5 mutants, 40% of the vesicle material is mislocalized to the dendrite. Chan-Yen Ou, a postdoctoral fellow in the lab, isolated a mutant that suppressed cdk-5, suggesting that the gene acts downstream or parallel to cdk-5. I mapped this mutant to the unc-101 locus, which encodes the [Mu]-subunit of the AP1 complex. AP complexes are players in clathrin-mediated endocytosis, and the [Mu]-subunit is the cargo recognition molecule within the complex. The AP1 complex plays a well-established role at the trans-golgi network in the cell body, but we present three results that suggest UNC-101 also acts at presynapses. The first result is the strong localization of UNC-101 at the synapse. The second result is that disrupting synaptic vesicle endocytosis (SVE) using genetic mutations causes a v similar phenotype as unc-101 mutations; animals mutant for unc-57/endophilin, unc- 26/synaptojanin, or dyn-1/dynamin 1 also suppress the cdk-5 dendritic phenotype. The third result is that the transport of synaptic vesicles from the synaptic region towards the dendrite decreases in an unc-101; cdk-5 double mutant compared to the cdk-5 single mutant, suggesting that UNC-101 is preventing retrograde flow from the synapses. While these results suggest a synaptic role for UNC-101, they do not exclude the possibility that UNC-101 also acts at the cell body. Indeed, I also show that UNC-101 affects the localization of postsynaptic proteins, which may occur by sorting proteins at the cell body. Additionally, postsynaptic proteins are unaffected by unc-57, suggesting an SVE-independent role for unc-101. Thus, I provide evidence that the AP1 subunit UNC-101 acts at presynapses and contributes to the molecular polarity of the DA9 motor neuron. The second part of my thesis contains my findings regarding a new system that I established to study synapse formation: the AFD thermosensory neuron. I found that the synaptic pattern in AFD is highly stereotyped, and I also isolated a mutant from a forward genetic screen that I mapped to the tax-4 locus. tax-4 and tax-2 encode two subunits of a cyclic nucleotide-gated channel that is necessary for sensory activity in AFD. When the genes are mutated, the localization of multiple presynaptic proteins is disrupted. Interestingly, they are not all similarly affected. Clusters of synaptic vesicles and the active zone protein SYD-2/liprin-[Alpha] are dimmer and more numerous in tax-4 and tax-2 than wild-type animals. While SAD-1/SAD kinase clusters are also dimmer, there are fewer in tax-4 and tax-2 than wild-type animals. These results suggest that sensory activity can have different effects depending on the presynaptic vi protein. Thus, for the second part of my thesis, I describe the establishment of a new system to study synapse development, the results of a screen, and a link between neural activity and the localization of presynaptic proteins.

    How does your immune system prepare for all of the potential pathogens it might face over the course of a lifetime? Trade-offs occur when you invest in responses that are beneficial when fighting one pathogen but are actively detrimental for fighting another. Due to the diversity of pathogens, immunity is potentially rife with this type of antagonism; to appreciate the full scope of potential trade-offs we must think about all of the possible immune responses a host can bring to bear on a pathogen. I propose that an "immune response" is any response to infection that influences the outcome of that infection. This includes processes that affect either resistance, the ability to clear pathogen, or tolerance, the ability to cope with pathology induced by infection. This broad definition of immunology will bring research of classically "non-immune" physiologies - metabolism, circadian rhythm and mating -- into the immune arena. Throughout this thesis I will explore, using Drosophila melanogaster as a model, a number of different trade-offs in immunity from the antagonism inherent in a resistance response to the benefits and consequences of energy expenditure during infection. First, I demonstrate that there is an inherent trade-off due to investment in phagocytosis when flies encounter two different infections: Listeria monocytogenes and Streptococcus pneumoniae. L. monocytogenes is a facultative intracellular pathogen that harnesses the additional phagocytosis, increasing entry into a desirable niche; S. pneumoniae is an extracellular pathogen that is better cleared by increased phagocytosis. I discovered the trade-off by comparing and contrasting the phenotypes caused by mutants in two Drosophila immunity genes: ets21c, a putative transcription factor, and wntD, a negative regulator of immunity. Further exploration of the immune phenotypes of the ets21c mutant revealed that these mutants have a range of phenotypes during infection, suggesting a complex picture. Ets21c affects both tolerance and resistance to infection, and the class of phenotype observed in ets21c mutants cannot be predicted solely by the intracellular versus extracellular nature of the infecting pathogen. Ets21c mutants also have a strikingly altered basal metabolic state, resembling sick wild-type flies, and have a muted change in transcript levels in response to infection. This thesis also deepens our understanding of developmental-immune pleitropy in the wntD pathway. Pleitropy itself causes trade-offs; for while pleitropy promotes efficiency in the genome, it also restricts the ability to evolve. WntD, a negative regulator of the toll pathway, impacts both immunity and dorsal-ventral development. Recently, work with the developmental phenotypes led to the discovery of components in the wntD signaling pathway. I show that these developmental mediators are also involved in immunity and impact survival during L. monocytogenes infection. L. monocytogenes infection causes infection induced anorexia in Drosophila and this thesis shows that infection with L. monocytogenes affects a number of metabolic pathways at both the transcript and metabolite level. This metabolic and transcriptome data generated a number of more specific and mechanistic hypotheses concerning additional potential trade-offs. First, energy stores, metabolic intermediates and transcripts for beta-oxidation and glycolysis decrease during infection. This reduction of available energy can both negatively impact the host when it runs out of energy for essential processes and positively impact the host by restricting the nutrients available to the pathogen. By infecting mutants with either initially low energy stores or an inability to access stores, we show that access to energy stores is important to the host during infection, although the flip-side of this trade-off remains untested. A second potential trade-off seen through our metabolomics are changes in the level of an anti-oxidant, uric acid. The flies enzymatically reduce levels of uric acid during L. monocytogenes infection. A reduction in an anti-oxidant should cause the reactive oxygen species to have additional potency. This would be helpful in combating the bacterial load, but potentially detrimental due to an increase of damage to the host itself. However, mutants in uricase, which fail to lower uric acid levels during infection, do not have such easily explainable phenotypes potentially due to compensation through other anti-oxidants. While not conclusive, these data suggest that the flies regulate their anti-oxidant levels during infection and that this complexly affects immunity. To address the dilemma of how to build a robust immune response, I contend that one must consider many different variables: diversity of pathogens, genetic efficiency, and the energetic cost. Years of evolution have honed the immune responses with many potential solutions. I found that Drosophila immune systems are likely constrained by a variety of tradeoffs -- antagonistic abilities of resistance responses, metabolic links with immunity, and developmental-immune pleitropy. We still need to better understand how these tradeoffs are regulated and their downstream implications. Understanding these antagonistic relationships will help us manipulate them to develop more effective treatment, as we can tailor medicine to the individual pathogen and the individual person's physiology.

    Nervous system function, from sensory perception to motor control, requires precisely patterned networks of synaptic connections. Each synapse is the fundamental unit of connection and proper establishment of this complex structure is essential for cognitive processes. Therefore, elucidating the molecular mechanisms and characterizing the proteins important for the development and structural organization of a synapse is fundamental to our understanding of the brain. Using C. elegans, I have explored the process of presynaptic development for my thesis work. I demonstrate that specification and initiation of synapse formation by clustering of SYG-1/Neph and SYG-2/Nephrin, two immunoglobulin superfamily transmembrane proteins, is dependent on their cell adhesion strength and interaction topology during development. Once this extracellular instructive cue is established at nascent synapses, an Arp2/3 dependent actin cytoskeleton is built locally that is dependent on the WVE-1/WAVE regulatory complex (WRC). This is mediated by interaction between a WRC interacting receptor sequence (WIRS) motif on the intracellular tail of SYG-1, which recruits the WRC. Next, an adaptor protein NAB-1/Neurabin binds to F-actin and recruits active zone proteins, SYD-1 and SYD-2/Liprin-[alpha] by forming a tripartite complex. SYD-2/Liprin-[alpha] is a key scaffold protein that interacts with multiple active zone components including UNC-10/Rim, ERC/ELKS-1, and GIT to form the synaptic active zone. SYD-2/Liprin-[alpha]'s pro-synaptogenic function can be regulated by interaction between its N-terminal coiled-coil domains and C-terminal sterile alpha motif (SAM) domains. Taken together, this insight into how synapses assemble in a simpler organism may lead to better understanding of development and function of the mammalian brain and its dysfunction in disease.

    "Where once end users queued up to ask information technology (IT) permission to buy a new computer or new version of software, they are now bypassing IT altogether and buying it on their own. From laptops to smartphones. From iPads to any number of software apps, end users have tasted their freedom and love them. IT is just never going to be the same. Welcome to the brave new world of "bring your own devices" (BYODs). The roots of BYOD can be traced back to the consumerization of all things technology, where technical wizardry is no longer purely the domain of the geek who works for the IT department. Geeks can now be found all over the organization. These workers want to make their own technology choices, whether those choices are on the "approved" list or the company pays for it. Seventy percent of organizations have already adopted BYOD. Gartner predicts this number to increase to 90% by 2014. Most interestingly, a very high percentage of workers think that it is a right rather than a privilege to use their own devices at work. So, it is really not a question of if. It is not even a question of when. It is a question of will you be ready. Of course, the healthcare industry is not the same as most other industries. Hospitals, clinics, and medical offices are not stores, hotels, or assembly lines, although all of these industries are affected by the economy, productivity, regulation, and the need for assessment. hBYOD: Adapting BYOD for the Healthcare Industry provides the guidance necessary for living in this brave new world. You will first learn how to understand these new end users and their demands, as well as the strategic and tactical ramifications of these demands. BYOD will then cover the broad range of technical considerations such as selection, "-- Provided by publisher.
