    "Connections define the functions of neurons: information flows along connections, as well as growth factors and viruses, and even neuronal death may progress through connections. Knowledge of how the various parts of the brain are interconnected to form functional systems is a prerequisite for the proper understanding of data from all fields in the neurosciences. Clinical Neuroanatomy: Brain Circuitry and Its Disorders bridges the gap between neuroanatomy and clinical neurology. It emphasizes human and primate data in the context of disorders of brain circuitry which are so common in neurological practice. In addition, numerous clinical cases demonstrate how normal brain circuitry may be interrupted and to what effect. Following an introduction into the organization and vascularisation of the human brain and the techniques to study brain circuitry, the main neurofunctional systems are discussed, including the somatosensory, auditory, visual, motor, antonomic and limbic systems, the cerebral cortex and complex cerebral functions."--Publisher's website.

    This book provides a comprehensive overview of the development of the human central nervous system (CNS) in the context of its many developmental disorders due to genetic, environmental, and hypoxic/ischemic causes. The introductory chapters give an overview of the development of the human brain and the spinal cord, the mechanisms of development as obtained in experimental studies of various invertebrates and vertebrates, and the causes of congenital malformations. In the main part, the developmental disorders of the human brain and the spinal cord are presented in a regional, more or less segmental way, starting with neurulation and neural tube defects, and ending with developmental disorders of the cerebral cortex. These are underlined by carefully chosen clinical case studies, including imaging data and, when available, postmortem verification of the developmental disorders involved. Numerous color photographs and illustrations complement the text. This second edition emphasizes the prenatal diagnosis by ultrasound, MRI, and DTI and implements new classifications of developmental disorders.

    Over the past two decades, electrophysiology has undergone unprecedented changes thanks to technical improvements, which simplify measurement and analysis and allow more compact data storage. This book covers in detail the spectrum of electrophysiology applications in patients with disorders of consciousness. Its content spans from clinical aspects of the management of subjects in the intensive care unit, including EEG, evoked potentials and related implications in terms of prognosis and patient management to research applications in subjects with ongoing consciousness impairment. While the first section provides up-to-date information for the interested clinician, the second part highlights the latest developments in this exciting field. The book comprehensively combines clinical and research information related to neurophysiology in disorder-of- consciousness patients, making it an easily accessible reference for neuro-ICU specialists, epileptologists and clinical neurophysiologists as well as researchers utilizing EEG and event-related potentials. ℗ℓ

    The field of clinical nutrition as a whole seeks to consider the nutrition of patients within the healthcare system, paying attention to the interactions between diet, nutrition, and disease. To that end, this book discusses nutrition as both a contributing and managing factor in relation to diseases such as obesity and diabetes. It also presents malnutrition as a contributing factor to such diseases and considers the efficacy of micronutrient supplementation. It ends by looking at some of the recent developments and future trends in the field of clinical nutrition.

    This is the first textbook to offer a comprehensive account of ocular prosthetics and the evidence used to underpin and support this field of healthcare. It does so by bringing together information from ophthalmology, prosthetic eye and contact lens literature, and from experts actively engaged in these fields. The book describes the psychological, anatomical and physiological aspects of eye loss as well as surgical procedures for removing the eye, patient evaluation, constructing prosthetic eyes (including prosthetic and surgical techniques for dealing with socket complications), the socket's response to prosthetic eyes, prosthetic eye maintenance and the history of prosthetic eyes. Though primarily intended for prosthetists, ophthalmologists, ophthalmic nurses, optometrists and students in the fields of ocular medicine, maxillofacial medicine and anaplastology, the book also offers a useful resource for other health workers and family members who care for prosthetic eye patients, and for those patients seeking a deeper understanding of the issues affecting them than they can find elsewhere.

    This book provides a carefully selected compilation of challenging cases representative of the situations and pathologies likely to be encountered when performing cardiovascular imaging using CT. The conditions covered include coronary artery disease, anomalous coronary arteries, congenital heart disease, coronary artery bypass grafts, infectious diseases, structural heart disease, tumors, and aortic pathology. The book also provides brief insight into use of Cardiac CT geared towards the pre-procedural use in patients undergoing atrial fibrillation ablation, thoracic endovascular aortic repair, or transcatheter aortic valve replacement. In addition, scanning techniques for some of the more difficult cases that a cardiac imager may encounter in practice are reviewed. All images are high-resolution reproductions, and subsequent cardiac catheterization images are included for cases in which obstructive coronary artery disease was revealed. Clinical Pearls in Diagnostic Cardiac Computed Tomographic Angiography is specifically designed to meet the needs of residents, fellows, and physicians who have an interest in cardiovascular CT.

    This comprehensive review provides a systematic, unbiased analysis, critique and summary of the available literature and generates novel clinical decision-making algorithms which can aid clinicians and scientists in practice management and research development. Potential mechanisms for the identified drug interactions are deduced from available preclinical and in vitro data which are interpreted in the context of the in vivo findings. Current limitations and gaps in the literature are summarized, and potential future research directions / experimentations are also suggested. In addition to the main objective to review the available clinical pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic drug interactions associated with WHO-recommended antimalarial drugs on the market today (i.e. chloroquine, amodiaquine, sulfadoxine, pyrimethamine, mefloquine, artemisinin, artemether, artesunate, dihydroartemisinin, artemotil, lumefantrine, primaquine, atovaquone, proguanil, piperaquine and quinine), this book also provides succinct chapter summaries on the epidemiology of malaria infection, diagnosis and therapeutics, in vivo pharmacology and chemistry, preclinical pharmacology, in vitro pharmacodynamics, in vitro reaction phenotyping, and in vitro drug-drug interaction data associated with the identified antimalarial drugs.

    A thorough knowledge of pharmacological and therapeutic principles is vital if drugs are to be used safely and effectively for increasingly informed patients. Those who clearly understand how drugs get into the body, how they produce their effects, what happens to them in the body, and how evidence of their therapeutic effect is assessed, will choose drugs more skilfully, and use them more safely and successfully than those who do not. Now in a fully revised 11th edition, Clinical Pharmacology is essential reading for undergraduate medical students, junior doctors and anyone concerned with ev.

    This book provides insights into how to be a productive clinical researcher via real-life case examples of successful clinical research -- and also clinical research gone awry. Through these examples of success and failure, the book develops a blueprint for building a career in clinical research. Future medical practice depends on the quality of the clinical trials to which drugs, devices, and treatment procedures are subjected today. However, clinical trials are not easy to do, and many physicians and health care providers who attempt clinical research struggle in this endeavor, primarily because of lack of instruction. Clinical Research aims to fill the gap between training and research through case studies of a long-time clinical researcher's rich and varied experiences.

    Care of the vascular trauma patient is a unique undertaking that requires a cohesive, multidisciplinary approach from all the surgical subspecialties to be successful. This is the first textbook of its kind to bring together all prominent management strategies from each of the surgical subspecialties, creating a unified voice on the management of the vascular trauma patient.? The purpose of the book is to serve as a practical surgical reference for the diagnosis and management of traumatic vascular injuries. Management of common vascular injuries is examined from a general, trauma, vascular, orthopaedic, plastics, cardiothoracic, and neurosurgical perspective by respected experts from each of these fields. Each section has been edited by specialists in the other relevant disciplines to ensure that every chapter represents an evidence-based assessment of all of the surgical subspecialties. Some essential topics include ideal choices of incision, endovascular versus open surgery, and the order in which to repair complex orthopedic and vascular injuries. Supplementing the clear and concise text are dozens of surgical photographs, illustrations, tables, and charts that assist in conveying complex concepts in vascular trauma management. Insights from the multidisciplinary panel of authors and editors help to simplify complex decision-making and streamline the overall care for critically ill patients. The Clinical Review of Vascular Trauma will be essential reading for any healthcare professional involved in care of the trauma patient.

    This book covers interesting and yet often challenging cases among adult patients in a unique Question-Answer format. Simulating the bed-side case discussions during the ward rounds, one question logically leads to another question thereby generating curiosity and promoting evidence-based medicine. Taking the readers through the entire spectrum starting from etiology and pathophysiology to clinical presentation to management principles, each question addresses one key aspect of the disorder. Described in a very simple and lucid narrative, this book ensures sound conceptual understanding while covering each topic comprehensively. This volume covers important topics such as acromegaly, Cushing syndrome, osteoporosis, hypercalcemia, pheochromocytoma, hyperaldosteronism, thyroid disorders, and diabetes in adult patients. These cases are not only seen by endocrinologists, but are also managed by internists, orthopedic surgeons, obstetricians and gynecologists. Less common disorders such as adrenal disorders and androgen excess have also been covered.

    Diabetic retinopathy (DR) and its dramatic and sight-threatening complications, such as diabetic macular edema, remain a leading cause of visual impairment among the working-age population. With the advent of effective treatments, a new era in the management of DR has been opened up: it is now possible for patients to regain a degree of visual acuity not previously expected. However, amid the deluge of approved treatments and promising new strategies, clinicians may find it difficult to choose the appropriate practice in each individual case. The purpose of this easy-to-use and richly illustrated manual is to assist ophthalmologists in making decisions in the entire management of DR based on the best available evidence. Practical and complete recommendations are provided to guide clinicians in diagnosis, decision-making, and treatment. The manual includes practical algorithms and case histories relating to all stages of DR that clearly explain the progression of the disease and will help the clinician to choose the best therapeutic approach. It will be an ideal resource for ophthalmologists aiming to provide optimal clinical management for this sight-threatening disease.

    The impaired brain has often been difficult to rehabilitate owing to limited knowledge of the brain system. Recently, advanced imaging techniques such as fMRI and MEG have allowed researchers to investigate spatiotemporal dynamics in the living human brain. Consequently, knowledge in systems neuroscience is now rapidly growing. Advanced techniques have found practical application by providing new prosthetics, such as brain?machine interfaces, expanding the range of activities of persons with disabilities, or the elderly. The book?s chapters are authored by researchers from various research fields such as systems neuroscience, rehabilitation, neurology, psychology, and engineering. The book explores the latest advancements in neurorehabilitation, plasticity, and brain?machine interfaces among others, and constitutes a solid foundation for researchers who aim to contribute to the science of brain function disabilities and ultimately to the well-being of patients and the elderly worldwide.

    The mainstay of orthopedic diagnosis continues to be the physical examination of the patient following a thorough history. This convenient pocketbook presents a comprehensive collection of the clinical tests that are used in orthopedic diagnosis, thereby answering the following questions: What tests are available for examining a particular joint, and how are they to be interpreted? What is meant by the name of a test that is mentioned in the literature or in a physician's report? The methodology and interpretation of all relevant test procedures are presented in almost 500 instructive drawings and brief descriptions: Initial tests, Functional tests, Stress tests, Stability tests. Tables on the examination of the spinal column, shoulder joint, and knee joint help in selecting the most suitable examinations. An invaluable aid for physical therapists, orthopedic surgeons, and primary care or emergency room physicians.

    "Now viewed as its own scientific discipline, clinical trial methodology encompasses the methods required for the protection of participants in a clinical trial and the methods necessary to provide a valid inference about the objective of the trial. Drawing from the authors courses on the subject as well as the first authors more than 30 years working in the pharmaceutical industry, Clinical trial methodology emphasizes the importance of statistical thinking in clinical research and presents the methodology as a key component of clinical research. From ethical issues and sample size considerations to adaptive design procedures and statistical analysis, the book first covers the methodology that spans every clinical trial regardless of the area of application. Crucial to the generic drug industry, bioequivalence clinical trials are then discussed. The authors describe a parallel bioequivalence clinical trial of six formulations incorporating group sequential procedures that permit sample size re-estimation. The final chapters incorporate real-world case studies of clinical trials from the authors own experiences. These examples include a landmark Phase III clinical trial involving the treatment of duodenal ulcers and Phase III clinical trials that contributed to the first drug approved for the treatment of Alzheimers disease. Aided by the U.S. FDA, the U.S. National Institutes of Health, the pharmaceutical industry, and academia, the area of clinical trial methodology has evolved over the last six decades into a scientific discipline. This guide explores the processes essential for developing and conducting a quality clinical trial protocol and providing quality data collection, biostatistical analyses, and a clinical study report, all while maintaining the highest standards of ethics and excellence"--Provided by publisher.

    This edition includes both updates and new uses and issues concerning CTS, along with case studies of how clinical trial simulations are being applied in various therapeutic and application areas. Importantly, the book expands on the utility of CTS for informing decisions during drug development and regulatory review. Each chapter author was selected on the basis of demonstrated expertise in state-of-the-art application of CTS. The target audience for this volume includes researchers and scientists who wish to consider use of simulations in the design, analysis, or regulatory review and guidance of clinical trials. This book does not embrace all aspects of trial design, nor is it intended as a complete recipe for using computers to design trials. Rather, it is an information source that enables the reader to gain understanding of essential background and knowledge for practical applications of simulation for clinical trial design and analysis. It is assumed that the reader has a working understanding of pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics, modeling, pharmacometric analyses, and/or the drug development and regulatory processes.

    This concise, yet practical handbook will aid in supporting the diagnosis, treatment, and long-term management of autism, including behavioral therapies, current clinical trials, and emerging pharmaceutical treatments. Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a developmental disorder characterised by disturbance in language, perception, and social skills that affects an estimated 1-2 per 1,000 people worldwide (although the number is as high as 20 per 1000 in the US). While studies have suggested a disturbance in neural metabolism in patients with ADS, the exact cause of the ASD still remains unknown. In 2013, a single indication of ASD, which united several related conditions (ie, classical autism, Asperger's syndrome, Fragile X Syndrome, Landau-Kleffner Syndrome, Rett syndrome, childhood disintegrative disorder, and PDD-NOS), was included in the fifth edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mood Disorders for the first time in order to support more standardized diagnoses.

    This atlas reviews the spectrum of pathologies affecting the structures of the cardiovascular (CV) system most frequently encountered in sudden cardiac deaths, and has been conceived as a first step for making CV pathology diagnoses. It is almost impossible to establish an accurate diagnosis based only on morphology, and therefore this atlas is to assemble knowledge and points of view from two medical specialties, cardiology and forensic pathology. It has been designed as a practical visual reference that includes a summary of clinical characteristics, many high quality images and clear tables containing the main morphological characteristics of each disease. Clinico-Pathological Atlas of Cardiovascular Diseases has been written by cardiologists and forensic pathologists and histopathologists, which enables a combination approach in each chapter, to produce a thorough resource that will be of relevance to a wide range of specialists, including cardiologists, cardiac surgeons, interventional cardiologists, forensic doctors, and pathologists.

    In response to changing environments, the brains of vertebrates generate diverse behaviors change their morphology and physiology. Expression of genes in the brain is regulated by light, food, social stresses, and by internal signals including reproductive cycles and metabolism. To understand how these signals can have impact behaviors and the brain, I have studied regulation of reproduction, feeding, and light detection in a cichlid fish, Astatotilapia burtoni, and a circadian rhythm generation in the Siberian hamster, Phodopus sungorus. My experimentals involved measurement of mRNA by in situ hybridization and quantitative reverse transcription-PCR (qRT-PCR). To understand circadian rhythm entrainment, I studied when and where genes involved in circadian light detection are expressed in A. burtoni. mRNA encoding melanopsin, vertebrate ancient opsin, and pituitary adenylate cyclase-activating peptide were found in the inner retina of A. burtoni as well as in the brain. Their locations reveal a network homologous to circadian detection networks in other vertebrates. Melanopsin mRNA levels changed based on light input, as seen for some other opsin genes. Brief light stimuli can suppress circadian rhythms in several species. A two-pulse light treatment induces circadian arrhythmia in locomotor activity in P. sungorus. Loss of circadian rhythmicity in tissues and organisms could occur either through loss of intracellular rhythms or through loss of intercellular synchrony. Following the light treatment, P. sungorus had suppressed levels of mRNA encoding the core clock genes per1, per2, bmal1, and cry1 in the suprachiasmatic nucleus (SCN). Thus, circadian rhythm loss due to light stimuli involves inhibition of intracellular rhythms in the SCN. The brain controls reproductive behavior and physiology in response to relevant external and internal cues. Gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH1) activates the reproductive system and GnRH1 peptide and mRNA levels are higher in dominant male A. burtoni than in subordinate males. Kisspeptin, a neuropeptide acting via the kisspeptin receptor (Kiss1r), increases GnRH1 release. In A. burtoni, I found kiss1r mRNA in GnRH1 and GnRH3 neurons and in many brain nuclei and kiss1r levels were higher in dominant males than in subordinate males. Kisspeptin signaling may regulate many brain functions, including responses to social status. Reproduction requires significant investment of metabolic energy, especially when parents provide care for offspring. Female A. burtoni carry eggs in their mouths for two weeks after spawning, during which time they do not eat. Food deprivation can affect reproductive and feeding behaviors and neuropeptides. To test the hypothesis that food deprivation and reproduction interact in regulating A. burtoni brain gene expression, I measured levels of several neuropeptide and receptor gene mRNAs following mouthbrooding or starvation. Mouthbrooding females had lower levels of gnrh1 mRNA than gravid females, but higher levels of cck and hcrt. In males, food deprivation decreased gnrh1 levels, but increased gnrh2, suggesting a novel feeding role for GnRH2 in fish. Mouthbrooding may inhibit reproduction and modulate feeding neural circuits. I also developed a technique for intracerebroventricular injections in A. burtoni that should facilitate manipulation of neuropeptide receptors including GnRH receptors. Matching behavior and physiology to accommodate changing lighting, social, feeding, and reproductive influences is important for maximizing organismal fitness and I have discovered how these factors regulate several genes that may contribute to adaptive responses in changing environments.

    "When it comes to the end of a relationship, the loss of a loved one, or even a national tragedy, we are often told we need 'closure.' But while some people do find closure for their pain and grief, many more feel that closure does not exist and believe the notion only encourages false hopes. Sociologist Nancy Berns explores these ideas and their ramifications in her timely book, Closure. Berns uncovers the various interpretations and contradictory meanings of closure. She identifies six types of 'closure talk,' revealing closure as a socially constructed concept and a 'new emotion.' Berns explores how closure has been applied widely in popular media and how the idea has been appropriated as a political tool and to sell products and services. This book explains how the push for closure--whether we find it helpful, engaging, or enraging--is changing our society."--Book cover.

    This book, unique in focusing specifically on cardiac masses, is the result of cooperation among a number of teams of radiologists working under the aegis of the French Society of Cardiovascular Imaging (SFICV). Its goal is to 1) review the different CMR sequences and CT acquisition protocols used to explore cardiac masses, 2) to demonstrate the several CMR and MDCT features of cardiac masses. It has been designed as a teaching tool and offers a fully illustrated compendium of clinical cases, tables summarizing data, and decision-making trees essential in everyday practice. It is presented as a practical handbook and can be either read cover to cover or consulted whenever needed during a cardiac imaging assignment. The book is intended for all students and experienced practitioners, whether radiologists or not, who are interested in cardiac or thoracic pathology.

    In the mammalian lung, multiciliated cells lining the conducting airways play a crucial role in mucociliary clearance, the primary defense mechanism of the lung against foreign particles and bacterial infection. The cilia of the multiciliated cells beat in metachronic waves to propel mucus up from the deep distal branches of the lung and out of the trachea, to be either expectorated or swallowed. Breakdown of the mucociliary escalator, due to ciliary dysfunction as occurs in primary ciliary dyskinesia, or due to changes in osmotic balance, as occurs in cystic fibrosis, result in chronic airway bacterial infections. Viral infection in healthy individuals also causes loss of cilia, and this correlates with high rates of bacterial infections that follow many viral infections. Despite the importance of these cells, we know very little about how they are specified during development, nor about how multiple cilia are generated. Each cilium is a membrane encased microtubule based structure that protrudes from the apical surface of the cell. Most cells bear a solitary, or primary, cilium, while only a few specialized cell types can generate hundreds of cilia each. Each cilia is nucleated by a single centriole, and centriole number is normally tightly regulated. How these multiciliated cells circumvent this regulation to generate hundreds of centrioles is unknown. One the developing multiciliated cell has generated its centrioles, those centrioles migrate to and dock with the apical membrane and generate their ciliary axonemes. While many proteins involved in ciliary function and intraflagellar transport have been identified, little is known about how these process are controlled from a molecular level. Very few transcription factors are known to play a role in ciliogenesis. The most well-studied one is Foxj1, which is required for motility in single cilia, and is also critical for proper centriole migration in multiciliated cells. However, ectopic expression of Foxj1 cannot confer a ciliated fate on a non-ciliated cell, and cells null for foxj1 still generate centrioles, so there must be other transcription factors that initiate ciliogenesis and act in the early steps of the process, such as centriole generation. Here, we have identified the first transcription factor that acts upstream of Foxj1 during ciliogenesis. We screened through a subset of the known and predicted transcription factors in the mouse genome for those expressed in the developing lung in a pattern similar to that of Foxj1. We isolated a single candidate, the myeloblastosis oncogene (c-myb). We showed that c-Myb was expressed in post-mitotic cells in the developing lung epithelium, many of which co-expressed Foxj1, indicating that c-Myb is expressed in ciliating cells. Analysis of the timing of c-Myb expression during development as compared to Foxj1 and to maturing ciliary axonemes revealed that c-Myb was expressed during the early steps of ciliogenesis and was downregulated as the cells matured. Specific removal of c-Myb from the developing airway epithelium abrogated Foxj1 expression and centriole generation at E15.5. c-myb null epithelia did not have mature ciliated cells at E17.5, although Foxj1 expression and centriole generation appear to have recovered by this time point. This is the first identification of a transcription factor that regulates the initiation of ciliogenesis in the developing mouse lung. Finally, we propose a modular model of transcriptional control of cilia, in which cells deploy specific transcriptional modules to build the particular kind of cilia they require.

    There have been many changes in the field of coagulation during the past decade. New concepts of epidemiology of risk factors for thrombosis now help clinicians predict who is more likely to form clots after surgery, or after being placed on oral contraceptives. New anticoagulants have the potential to redefine how patients with atrial fibrillation and venous thrombosis are managed. There are new forms of recombinant clotting factors which have changed our approach to hypofibrinogenemia and von Willebrand's disease. Newer antiplatelet agents are available and their use in patients receiving cardiac stents has mushroomed. The management of thrombosis in the setting of pregnancy has changed over the past decade, as well as the way clinicians approach women with multiple miscarriages. An entire new class of compounds, the thrombopoietins, are available to treat individuals with immune thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP). The Coagulation Consult covers major topics of interest to hematologists who are asked to consult on individuals with coagulation related diseases, and encompasses the field's most recent developments. This "case-directed" book describes state-of-the-art approaches to patients with bleeding and clotting disorders, as well as laboratory tests for coagulation. Chapters include different vignettes, focus on typical clinical consult questions, and lay out specific types of treatment. Practicing clinicians being confronted with a coagulation consult, students, residents, fellows and attending physicians will find this unique text an invaluable resource for some of the newer areas of coagulation science, therapy and pharmacology.

    "Why do some developing countries have more efficient health systems and better health outcomes? Contrary to existing theory that posits the superiority of proportional representation (PR) rules on public-goods provision, this book argues that electoral rules function differently given the underlying ethnic structure. In countries with low ethnic salience, PR has the same positive effect as in past theories. In countries with high ethnic salience, the geographic distribution of ethnic groups further matters: where they are intermixed, PR rules are worse for health outcomes; where they are isolated, neither rule is superior. The theory is supported through a combination of careful analysis of electoral reform in individual country cases with numerous well-designed cross-country comparisons. The case studies include Thailand, Mauritius, Malaysia, Botswana, Burma and Indonesia. The theory has broad implications for electoral rule design and suggests a middle ground in the debate between the Consociational and Centripetal schools of thought"-- Provided by publisher.

    This new graduate level textbook, Cognition and Acquired Language Disorders: An Information Processing Approach, addresses the cognitive aspects of language and communication. It assembles the most recent information on this topic, addressing normal cognitive processing for language in adults, the cognitive impairments underlying language disorders arising from a variety of neurologic conditions, and current assessment and treatment strategies for the management of these disorders. The text is organized using an information processing approach to acquired language disorders, and thus can be set apart from texts that rely upon a more traditional, syndrome-based approach (e.g., stroke, dementia, and traumatic brain injury). This approach facilitates the description and treatment of acquired language disorders across many neurologic groups when particular cognitive deficits are identified. Other useful features of the text include assessment and treatment protocols that are based on current evidence. These protocols provide students and clinicians a ready clinical resource for managing language disorders due to deficits in attention, memory, linguistic operations, and executive functions. Unique process-oriented approach organizes content by cognitive processes instead of by syndromes so you can apply the information and treatment approaches to any one of many neurologic groups with the same cognitive deficit. Cognitive domains are described as they relate to communication rather than separated as they are in many other publications where they are treated as independent behaviors. A separate section on normal processing includes five chapters providing a strong foundation for understanding the factors that contribute to disordered communication and its management. The evidence-based approach promotes best practices for the most effective management of patients with cognitive-communication disorders. Coverage of the cognitive aspects of communication helps you meet the standards for certification in speech-language pathology. A strong author team includes two lead authors who are well known and highly respected in the academic community, along with expert contributors, ensuring a comprehensive, advanced clinical text/reference.

    "Enormous advances in information technology have permeated essentially all facets of life in the past two decades. Formidable challenges remain in fostering tools that enhance productivity but are sensitive to work practices. Cognitive Informatics (CI) is the multidisciplinary study of cognition, information and computational sciences that investigates all facets of human computing including design and computer-mediated intelligent action, thus is strongly grounded in methods and theories from cognitive science. As an applied discipline, it has a close affiliation with human factors and human-computer interaction, and provides a framework for the analysis and modeling of complex human performance in technology-mediated settings and contributes to the design and development of better information systems. In recent years, CI has emerged as a distinct area with special relevance to biomedicine and health care. In addition, it has become a foundation for education and training of health informaticians, the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology initiating a program including CI as one of its critical elements to support health IT curriculum development. This book represents a first textbook on cognitive informatics and will focus on key examples drawn from the application of methods and theories from CI to challenges pertaining to the practice of critical-care medicine (CCM). Technology is transforming critical care workflows and re-organizing patient care management processes. CCM has proven to be a fertile test bed for theories and methods of cognitive informatics. CI, in turn, has contributed much to our understanding of the factors that result in complexity and patient errors. The topic is strongly interdisciplinary and will be important for individuals from a range of academic and professional backgrounds, including critical care specialists, psychologists, computer scientists, medical informaticians, and anthropologists"--Provided by publisher.

    The fourth edition of The Cognitive Neurosciences continues to chart new directions in the study of the biologic underpinnings of complex cognition--the relationship between the structural and physiological mechanisms of the nervous system and the psychological reality of the mind. Since the publication of the third edition, the field of cognitive neuroscience has made rapid and dramatic advances; fundamental stances are changing and new ideas are emerging. This edition reflects the vibrancy of the field, with research in development and evolution that finds a dynamic growth pattern becoming specific and fixed, and research in plasticity that sees the neuronal systems always changing; exciting new empirical evidence on attention that also verifies many central tenets of longstanding theories; work that shows the boundaries of the motor system pushed further into cognition; memory research that, paradoxically, provides insight into how humans imagine future events; pioneering theoretical and methodological work in vision; new findings on how genes and experience shape the language faculty; new ideas about how the emotional brain develops and operates; and research on consciousness that ranges from a novel mechanism for how the brain generates the baseline activity necessary to sustain conscious experience to a bold theoretical attempt to make the problem of qualia more tractable.

    It is now more than ever critical to have a reference to highlight the applicable embryology, anatomy, histology, and pathophysiology of surgical diseases and how these relate to critical tissue planes, surgical pitfalls, and technical pearls. This text is organized by organ system and the illustrations highlight surgical pearls borne of experience and polished by the study of pertinent references. Hand-drawn and illustrated figures show exact anatomical relationships as we see them in-vivo. A question/answer format augments the images to allow the reader to actively reflect on the topic and to appraise his/her knowledge in that area. The discussion sections strive to explain not only what the correct answer is, but also why the distractors are wrong, in order to motivate discussion and self-reflection. Cognitive Pearls in General Surgery details the explicit thought processes and associations that underlie the understanding of the topics at hand, with the intent of enhancing the fun and enjoyment that only an informed and well-grounded practice of surgery can provide.

    In this thesis, a tracking system was developed by modifying an add-on collimator, the Siemens Moduleaf, for realtime applications in radiotherapy. As the add-on collimator works almost completely autonomously of the linear accelerator (LinAc), no modifications to the latter were necessary. The adaptations to the Moduleaf were mainly software-based. In order to reduce the complexity of the system, outdated electronic parts were replaced with newer components where practical. Verification was performed by measuring the latency of the system as well as the impact on applied dose to a predefined target volume, moving in the leaf's travel direction. Latency measurements in software were accomplished by comparing the target and current positions of the leaves. For dose measurements, a Gafchromic EBT2 film was placed beneath the target 4D phantom, in between solid water plates, and moved alongside with it. Based on the results, a tracking-capable add-on collimator seems to be a useful tool for reducing the margins for the treatment of small, slow-moving targets. Radiotherapy is one of the most important methods used for the treatment of cancer. Irradiating a moving target is also one of the most challenging tasks to accomplish in modern radiotherapy.

    "Focusing on yellow fever, cholera, and plague epidemics as well as on sanitation in the context of urban growth in Saint-Louis-du-Senegal between 1867 and 1920, this book explores how the French colonial and medical authorities responded to the emergence and re-emergence of deadly epidemic diseases and environmental contamination. Official reactions ranged from blaming the Africans and the tropical climate to the imposition of urban residential segregation and strictly enforced furloughs of civil servants and European troops. Drastic and disruptive sanitary measures led to a conflict between the interests of competing conceptions of public health and those of commerce, civil liberties, and popular culture. This book also examines the effort undertaken by the colonizer to make Senegal a healthy colony and Saint-Louis the healthiest port-city/capital through better hygiene, building codes, vector control, and the construction of waterworks and a sewerage system. The author offers insight into the urban processes and daily life in a colonial city during the formative years of the French empire in West Africa." -- [Publisher-supplied data]

    Chemical peeling is a well-known method used to restore a more youthful appearance and improve dermatologic defects. In recent years the technique has been marked by constant innovation. This book is the first atlas on chemical peels and has been significantly revised and updated since the first edition so as to reflect the state of the art in the field. The various types of chemical peel and peeling techniques, including new combined procedures, are first discussed in a step-by-step manner with the aid of supporting illustrations. Pathogenesis and treatment options are then considered, with each author reporting on his or her personal experience and preferred approach for different diseases and conditions, including acne, rosacea, melasma, photoaging, postinflammatory hyperpigmentation, actinic keratosis, and dark skin. An entirely new section addresses how to deal with side-effects and complications of the different procedures. This atlas has been specifically designed as a reference tool for dermatologists who deal with cosmetology. In particular, by providing clear and practical information on the different peeling procedures and their indications, it will prove invaluable for dermatologists and other doctors who wish to start performing chemical peels.

    Strabismus can be devastating to patients, yet often difficult to treat, even for the most seasoned veteran. The Atlas of Strabismus Surgery, Fourth Edition clearly and succinctly shares with the reader strategies and surgical techniques to improve the care of patients, starting with the simple basics and progressing to more complicated procedures. Updated from the successful third edition, the atlas is designed for resident ophthalmologists and experienced strabismologists alike. Complete with hundreds of color illustrations, as well as updated surgical videos not found in the previous edition, The Atlas of Strabismus Surgery, Fourth Edition covers the management of a wide range of strabismus disorders, from the relatively simple horizontal strabismus, to the complex cyclo-vertical deviations.

    This color atlas is a detailed guide on how to perform open, endoscopic, and robotic thyroidectomy techniques safely and effectively. Each chapter offers step-by-step descriptions of essential surgical procedures and techniques. Relevant information is included on surgical anatomy, and clear guidance is provided on preoperative set-up, draping, instrumentation, and complications and their treatment. The description of endoscopic thyroidectomy techniques focuses on the bilateral axillo-breast approach (BABA), while in the case of robotic thyroidectomy both BABA and the bilateral axillo-postauricular approach are described. In each case, the evidence supporting the technique is carefully examined. In the closing chapter, the role of new energy sources in thyroid surgery is discussed. The lucid text is supported by more than 200 full-color illustrations clarifying surgical anatomy, instrumentation, and procedures, and surgical video clips are also available to readers via a website. This atlas will be invaluable in enabling surgeons to achieve optimal outcomes when performing thyroid surgery.

    This pocket guide helps you to grasp the connection between three-dimensional organ systems and their two-dimensional representation in ultrasound imaging. Through dynamic illustrations and clarifying text, it allows you to: recognize, name, and confidently locate all organs, landmarks, and anatomical details of the abdomen; examine all standard planes, including transverse and longitudinal scans for regions of sonographic interest (including the thyroid gland); understand topographic relationships of organs and structures in all three spatial planes. This text is ideal for the beginner, providing a rapid orientation to all key topics. It includes: over 250 fully labeled image quartets, each showing: the preferred location of the transducer on the body; the resulting image; a labeled drawing of the image, keyed to anatomic structures; and a small 3-D drawing showing the location of the scanning plane in the organ. Body markers with information on transducer handling and positioning for each sonogra; over 250 rules of thumb and key concepts; all relevant landmarks, measurable parameters, and normal values.

    As the population ages, clinicians are facing an increasing number of elderly patients with colorectal cancer. Disease management in these patients poses a unique challenge as they have more comorbidities and lower functional reserves. In addition, the treatment goals may differ from those in younger patients. Appropriate management of elderly patients demands a greater understanding of not only the physiological changes but also issues related to the delivery of holistic care. This book discusses in depth the different aspects of management of colorectal cancer in the elderly. After the provision of pertinent background information on the normal physiology of aging, screening and diagnosis are discussed. Subsequent chapters focus on a range of issues associated with the surgical and perioperative care of these patients and with adjuvant treatment and palliative care. Each chapter provides helpful take-home messages in bullet point form, and numerous informative figures and tables are also included. The authors are surgeons, physicians, anesthetists, geriatricians, oncologists, and allied health professionals with extensive experience in the field.This book discusses in depth the different aspects of management of colorectal cancer in the elderly.

    "Presents recent research developments to aid fighting fungal infections The currently available means of combating fungal infections are still weak and clumsy. The application of fungal genomics offers an unparalleled opportunity to develop novel antifungal drugs. Interestingly, several novel antifungal drug targets have already been identified and validated. However, it is too early to expect any novel antifungal drug as drug discovery programs are still in their infancy. In addition to classical and genomic approaches to drug discovery, traditional knowledge derived from natural products and phytomedicine can provide a multitude of alternative modes of combating fungal infection. This book comprises 20 chapters on various aspects pertaining to fungal diseases in human and animals, their reservoir, fungal pathogenesis, their management and recent advances in their treatment. Issues of antifungal drug toxicity, especially nephrotoxicity, are also discussed. The development of resistance in fungal pathogens, including multidrug resistance and its mechanism, is dealt with in two chapters. Diverse diagnostic approaches to fungal infections are also reviewed. The combinational drug strategies used in combating invasive fungal infections are addressed in detail. The management of pulmonary mycoses in stem cell transplantation is also given special focus. Novel antifungal drugs (synthetic and herbal), fungal vaccines, and metabolic pathways as drug targets are discussed in detail in three different chapters. Subsequently the roles of innate immunity, cytokine therapy and immunomodulators in the treatment of fungal infections are elaborated upon. As novel drug delivery systems have a great potential for modifying the pharmacokinetics of medications, the last chapter takes this fact into consideration in its examination of state-of-the-art delivery systems in controlling fungal infections."--Publisher's website.

    Comprising contributions from leading lipidologists from around the world, this book presents the latest and most comprehensive knowledge on the different options for combination therapy of dyslipidemia, and includes discussion of future therapies that are currently in late stages of clinical evaluation. Dyslipidemia is a leading cause of cardiovascular morbidity and mortality and most patients with this condition fail to achieve adequate control of their serum lipid levels with monotherapy. However, recent US and European guideline recommendations, based on randomized, controlled trials, fail to discuss combination therapy options for patients with dyslipidemia. Statins remain the mainstay of drug therapy for hyperlipidemia and chapters in this book specifically examine the role of add-on therapy with different agents modulating the different lipid fractions in the blood, e.g. bile acid sequestrants, fibric acid derivatives (fibrates), omega-3 fatty acids (fish oils), inhibitors of Niemann-Pick C1 like 1 (NPC1L1) protein, cholesteryl ester transfer protein (CETP), apolipoprotein B-100 and microsomal triglyceride transfer protein (MTP), and the emerging proprotein convertase subtilisin/kexin type 9 (PCSK9) inhibitors. There is additional discussion of the role of non-drug therapy options such as nutraceuticals, functional foods and lipoprotein apheresis. The book also discusses the combination of antihypertensive drugs with lipid-lowering drugs in the management of cardiovascular risk in patents with dyslipidemia.

    For over 30 years, the stepped care approach has been used in the management and treatment of hypertension. This approach advocates the use of initial monotherapy to reach the desired blood pressure, and the subsequent use of additional drugs with complementary modes of action, until the target BP is achieved. However, current control rates for hypertension suggest that such an approach may be outdated and no longer effective in the management of hypertension. Clinical trials have shown that more than 50% of patients require a combination of drug therapies to achieve their target BP. Some proponents of combination therapy have argued that the risk of adverse side effects and non-compliance will be lower than that compared to monotherapy, which initially requires higher doses to be administered to be effective. Consequently, there have been increasing calls of the necessity for a much more combined approach in the treatment of hypertension. Adding to this, Combination Therapy in Hypertension will cover current control rates of blood pressure worldwide, the benefits of monotherapy and combination therapy, examine the effectiveness, risk of adverse effects, compliance, and cost of the available therapies and will also include information on relevant outcome studies.

    Ligand-receptor interactions and the specific molecular recognition events that define them govern many important physiological processes. When these interactions become dysregulated, normal physiology quickly degenerates into disease states. Nowhere is this more evident than in metastatic cancer, where aberrant signaling drives uncontrolled cell growth and systemic dissemination of disease. In spite of much effort, the management of metastatic disease has largely remained an intractable clinical challenge as effective treatment options are limited. Protein-based biologics, which leverage the inherent affinity and specificity of protein-protein interactions, offer an effective strategy for targeting and modulating dysregulated disease pathways in order to bring them under control. In this dissertation, we use combinatorial and rational protein engineering methods to develop receptor-based therapeutics that target Axl, a receptor tyrosine kinase shown to be involved in driving metastasis and disease progression in a wide range of human cancers. Using yeast-surface display and directed evolution, Axl variants were engineered for improved binding to Gas6, Axl's activating ligand. To gain an understanding of the molecular basis of the increased binding, detailed biochemical and structural studies were performed, including solving the structure of a high affinity Axl variant in complex with Gas6. When reformatted for in vivo applications, the engineered Axl decoy receptors were found to have apparent affinities to Gas6 as low as 93 fM, which are among some of the strongest protein-protein interactions ever reported. Importantly, when tested in a panel of aggressive mouse models of metastatic disease, the engineered decoy receptors showed significant efficacy, reducing metastatic disease by up to 95%. Collectively, these results validate Axl as a therapeutic target in metastatic disease and highlight the potential clinical value of the engineered Axl decoy receptors as novel anti-metastatic therapies.

    In this fourth edition of Combined Scintigraphic and Radiographic Diagnosis of Bone and Joint Diseases, the text has been thoroughly amended, updated, and partially rearranged to reflect the latest advances. In addition to discussing the role of pinhole imaging in the range of disorders previously covered, the new edition pays detailed attention to the novel diagnostic use of gamma correction pinhole bone scan in a broad spectrum of skeletal disorders, including physical, traumatic, and sports injuries, infectious and non-infectious bone diseases, benign and malignant bone tumors, and soft tissue diseases. A large number of state of the art pinhole scans and corroborative CT, MRI, and/or ultrasound images are presented side by side. The book has been enlarged to encompass various new topics, including occult fractures; cervical sprain and whiplash trauma; bone marrow edema; microfractures of trabeculae; evident, gaping, and stress fractures; and differential diagnosis. This new edition will be essential reading for practitioners and researchers in not only nuclear medicine but also radiology, orthopedic surgery, and pathology.

    Dynamic susceptibility-contrast perfusion-weighted imaging (DSC PWI) is a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) technique that measures the delivery of arterial blood to the tissue capillary bed using a contrast agent. DSC PWI can reveal important information in stroke patients by assessing hypoperfused brain tissue, while in tumor patients it is used to evaluate the tumor vasculature. For clinical applications, DSC PWI relies on both accurate and rapid image formation. Gradient-echo echo-planar imaging (EPI) is the most commonly used MRI pulse sequence for DSC PWI, mainly due to its fast image acquisition capability, a relatively high contrast-to-noise ratio, and its availability on most clinical MRI systems. However, quantification of perfusion parameters with gradient-echo EPI remains challenging. Gradient-echo EPI is most sensitive to larger vessels, including arteries and veins. These measurements do not provide specific information about true perfusion within the microvasculature, the site of oxygen and nutrient extraction to brain tissue. To acquire perfusion measurements that are more confined to the microvasculature, spin-echo EPI acquisition techniques have been proposed. Spin-echo EPI is most sensitive to smaller vessels, providing a clear advantage over gradient-echo EPI. Unfortunately, spin-echo EPI suffers from lower sensitivity to the contrast agent passage, and the determination of arterial contrast agent concentrations required for quantitative perfusion MRI remains an unsolved problem when using spin-echo EPI data. In the first part of this dissertation, a combined approach for simultaneous spin- and gradient-echo (SAGE) perfusion MRI is presented. The proposed imaging technique combines the advantages of higher overall sensitivity to contrast agent passage of gradient-echo EPI with superior microvascular selectivity of spin-echo EPI, resulting in complementary perfusion information. The combined method enabled improved detection of abnormal brain perfusion compared to conventionally processed DSC PWI data, as illustrated in cases of stroke and brain tumors. Specifically, reduced sensitivity to larger blood vessels of spin-echo data generated from SAGE perfusion MRI measurements improved the visibility of hypoperfused tissue. In the second part, the gradient-echo and spin-echo signal contributions to the proposed SAGE perfusion MRI acquisition technique are analyzed in detail. The development of an optimized pair of MRI excitation and refocusing pulses enhanced the contrast-to-noise ratio of the spin-echo signal. Moreover, augmented perfusion parameter estimation improved the accuracy of both gradient-echo and spin-echo signals to reduce perfusion quantification errors. In the last part, implications of contrast agent leakage from the brain vasculature are discussed. Considerable contrast agent extravasation, caused by blood-brain barrier leakage commonly observed in brain tumors and subacute strokes, results in additional quantification errors of brain perfusion parameters. To mitigate these errors, pharmacokinetic modeling of contrast agent distribution was applied to SAGE perfusion MRI data. Intravascular contrast agent concentrations could then be separated from extravascular concentrations, resulting in leakage-corrected perfusion data. Moreover, the applied pharmacokinetic modeling approach facilitated the extraction of permeability parameters. The combined evaluation of perfusion and permeability parameters, derived from SAGE perfusion MRI data, showed potential utility in brain tumor imaging with the goal of improving the diagnostic value of perfusion MRI in the assessment of brain tumor progression.

    Aberrant states in the nervous system, both acute and chronic are the cause of mental health diseases that affect more than a quarter of Americans over the age of 18. The mechanisms underlying mental health diseases such as Parkinsons, schizophrenia, anxiety, and depression are poorly understood, and thus current treatment approaches are often ineffective or carry with them significant side effects. In order to improve our understanding of these diseases and others, new tools must be developed that take into account the complex dynamics and diversity of circuit elements that make up the neural substrates from which these behaviors arise from. Our lab has pioneered the use of light activated microbial opsins in mammalian neurons in order that we can manipulate neural circuits with cell- type specificity, millisecond temporal precision, and millimeter spatial resolution -- termed 'Optogenetics' . These genetically encoded elements include two broad classes, excitatory channels such as Channelrhodopsin - 2 (ChR2) and inhibitory pumps such as Halorhodopsin (NpHR). The use of these tools allow for bidirectional control ove r cell types and connections that make up the neural circuits that underlie behavior within normal and diseased mental health states using simple gene and light targeting approaches. But, the nervous system's structural complexity -- both in the geometrical arrangement of neurons and connections between neurons - requires more than these basic approaches to dissect its function. To address this extra layer of complexity, the spatial control of light excitation itself could be a versatile method in combination with optogenetic approaches to dissect neural circuitry. The studies herein look to build upon current optogenetic technology by utilizing light restriction in order to control and dissect neural circuits with high precision. There are two approaches used to accomplish this: (1) in vivo and ex vivo one photon light restriction that utilize simple light restrictive optical elements to more precisely stimulate and inhibit both genetically targeted cells or connections between close brain areas and (2) in vivo and ex vivo two photon techniques that allow for fast excitation, inhibition, and bi- stable modulation at the level of a single - cell, multiple single - cells, or in some cases, sub-cellularly . The tools developed here can be used in a variety of systems and allows for the dissection of neural circuitry using optogenetics to a new level of precision that was otherwise unapproachable via any technique available to researchers. As these tools are further developed, a bridge between the individual cellular contributions to neural circuit function and behavioral neuroscience will hopefully emerge.

    "The Economics of Social Determinants of Health project resulted in the publication of a resource book on 'The economics of social determinants of health and health inequalities.' This booklet has been prepared as an executive summary of the key points from the resource book. As with the resouce book, this booklet has the following main objectives: -- to provide an overview and introduction into how economists would approach the assessment of the economic motivation to invest in the social determinants of health; -- to illustrate the extent to which an economic argument can be made in favour of investment in three major social determinants of health areas: education, social protection, and urban development, housing and transport infrastructure (for brevity, urban development and infrastructure); and -- to outline areas for future needed research."--p. 2

    The importance of the intestinal microbiota to the health of an organism is well recognized. Alterations in the composition of the microbiota are associated with a number of diseases. However, the extent to which the microbiota varies across healthy individuals and time and the causes of this variation are still not fully understood. In order to distinguish between microbial community states of health and disease, the range of healthy microbial communities must be determined. In addition, the effect of perturbations on the microbiota is an area of active research. Recent studies indicate that intestinal infections can have a significant impact on the composition of intestinal microbiota. However, the extent and duration of these changes during different infections have not been fully characterized. My aims were to characterize the range of healthy microbiota in an inbred mouse population over time and to determine the dynamics of alterations in the microbiota during disease. I also wanted to determine if certain characteristics of the microbiota make animals more or less susceptible to infection. In this work, 46 individual healthy mice were sampled over time to assess the range of microbial communities in health. A mouse model of Salmonella enterica serovar Typhimurium infection was used to assess the impact of infection on the microbiota. Mice were sampled prior to infection and over the course of infection. This work finds that the microbiota of healthy mice varies significantly over time and among individuals. However, there are stable differences among individual mice, which may be established at the point of weaning when adult microbial communities develop. In addition, this work finds significant changes in the microbiota during infection that differ with the level of infection. This data also shows that there are some taxa whose abundance prior to infection correlates with outcome of infection. This work provides insights into the dynamics of the microbiota in health and disease and its impact on the health of the host.

    Recent trends in health care across the United States and internationally have emphasized a novel approach that consists in comparing the effectiveness and efficacy of treatment interventions with a patient-centered emphasis (i.e., evidence-based health care), while ensuring cost constraints, maximizing benefits, and minimizing risks. In this book, experts in comparative effectiveness and efficacy research and analysis for practice (CEERAP) in health care in general address a range of topical issues. The emphasis is on implications for endodontics and nursing, both of which are considered in a series of detailed chapters. Commonalities and differences among CEERAP, utility-based and logic-based analysis and decision-making, and evidence-based and patient-centered practice are defined and discussed. The book concludes by examining applications for CEERAP in developing patient-centered optimal treatment interventions for the next decade.

    Despite tremendous recent advances in the treatment of most malignancies, there remain several critical questions for each cancer. This particularly true for the surgical management of solid-organ malignancies. Comparative effectiveness is a relatively new term which encompasses the age-old concepts of how best to treat cancer patients. Comparative effectiveness is defined as the direct comparison of healthcare interventions to determine which work best for which patients when considering the benefits and risks. The Institute of Medicine has defined comparative effectiveness research (CER) as the generation and synthesis of evidence that compares the benefits and harms of alternative methods to prevent, diagnose, treat, and monitor a clinical condition or to improve the delivery of care. CER is certainly best done with well-conducted randomized controlled trials. Unfortunately, clinical trials are not always feasible owing to the impracticality of conducting the trial, the considerable cost, and the time required to complete the trial. These challenges are even more pronounced with respect to surgical treatment. Thus alternative approaches may need to be considered in order to address pressing questions in the care of the oncology patient. These approaches may include well-conducted retrospective cohort studies from cancer registries and other data sources, decision and cost-effectiveness analyses, and other novel methodologies. This book lays out the current critical questions for each major malignancy and proposes approaches to gain answers to these pressing questions.

    This book provides an evolutionary conceptual framework for comparative genomics, with the ultimate objective of understanding the loss and gain of genes during evolution, the interactions among gene products, and the relationship between genotype, phenotype and the environment. The many examples in the book have been carefully chosen from primary research literature based on two criteria: their biological insight and their pedagogical merit. The phylogeny-based comparative methods, involving both continuous and discrete variables, often represent a stumbling block for many students entering the field of comparative genomics. They are numerically illustrated and explained in great detail. The book is intended for researchers new to the field, i.e., advanced undergraduate students, postgraduates and postdoctoral fellows, although professional researchers who are not in the area of comparative genomics will also find the book informative.

    The first thorough review of cyclooxygenase inhibitors, including their toxicity mechanisms and toxicopathological risks. Cyclooxygenases (COXs) are enzymes responsible for the formation of an important class of biological mediators called prostanoids. Prostanoids such as prostaglandins mediate inflammatory and anaphylactic reactions. For those suffering from inflammation and pain, the pharmacological inhibition of COXs, with non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), such as ibuprofen, can provide relief. Yet the use of NSAIDs can trigger toxicological effects as well, leading to potential health risks. Comparative Pathophysiology and Toxicology of Cyclooxygenases provides a comprehensive overview of how COX inhibitors affect various bodily systems, specifically the toxicity mechanisms triggered when the COX enzyme is inhibited. The book provides an introduction to the discovery of cyclooxygenases, their use as therapeutic agents, as well as an historical perspective. Shedding light on the differences in expression, pathophysiology, and toxicology of COX inhibitors across species, the book offers a systematic examination of the effects and pathophysiology of COX inhibitors and their mechanisms of toxicity, beginning with the GI tract. Subsequent chapters cover: The pathophysiology of COX inhibition on bone, tendon, and ligament healing, COX inhibitors and renal system pathophysiology and mechanisms of toxicity, The pathophysiologic role of COX inhibition in the ocular system, COX inhibition and the respiratory and cardiovascular systems. The book also sheds light on the latest research devoted to developing COX inhibitors with no adverse side-effects. The first book to offer a thorough comparative look at the toxicological effects of COX inhibitors throughout the body, this invaluable resource will help advance the research and development of safer and more effective COX drugs.

    Enhanced knowledge of the nature and causes of mental disorder have led increasingly to a need for the recruitment of a cognitively vulnerablea (TM) participants in biomedical research. These individuals often fall into the a grey areaa (TM) between obvious decisional competence and obvious decisional incompetence and, as a result, may not be recognised as having the legal capacity to make such decisions themselves. At the core of the ethical debate surrounding the participation of cognitively vulnerable individuals in research is when, if at all, we should judge them decisionally and legally.

    Complementary & Alternative Medicine for Prostate and Urologic Health is designed to capture and clinically review the comprehensive database of clinical research articles that support and do not support the utilization of a variety of dietary supplements and other complementary medicines that physicians are exposed to in their daily practice. This is a critical distinction between this book and any other Complementary & Alternative Medicine (CAM) books published to date. Each section of the book provides an easy to reference guide into the topic of interest for the individual that works in urology. The various sub-specialty groups in urology are adequately represented, which allows for a physician to rapidly and thoroughly investigate their topic of interest regardless of whether it is fertility, bladder cancer, or prostate disease. Rather than having to sort through the now thousands of articles published yearly on CAM in medicine, this volume focuses first on the specialty and secondarily how it compares to the overall CAM literature. Each chapter includes a summary page that will allow the physician a rapid review of the subject with a patient, colleague or student.

    Unique ready reference for all complementary medicine, massage,therapy and manual therapy practitioners and students alerting them to 'red flag' symptoms which should be referred for Western medical investigation or emergency medical treatment. When can a patient be safely reassured and when do they need further investigation or treatment? 'Red flags' are clinical signs that suggest a patient needs prompt investigation and treatment for a potentially dangerous situation. Therapists increasingly find themselves working alongside conventionally trained doctors and nurses and it is vital for them to understand conventional medical diagnoses, symptoms and treatments and, crucially, to recognise warning signs of serious disease. This is essential in order to be a safe practitioner. Clare Stephenson's The Complementary Therapist's Guide to Red Flags and Referrals meets this need by providing an easily accessible reference to 'red flag'symptoms, designed especially for therapists. It offers guidance on how best to respond to those symptoms and signs of disease which can be readily discerned through routine history taking and basic examination of the body. The guidance is in language which is accessible to therapists, and clear advice is offered on when to refer patients to conventional medicine practitioners and how to communicate with doctors when making a referral. Clinical syndromes which merit rapid response are summarised for ease of reference.

    It is imperative that doctors know how to speak the language of business when communicating with insurance companies, hospital administrators, bankers, accountants and other advisors. Like any business, doctors will need to have marketing and branding strategies that will create advantages and differentiation as the practice of medicine becomes increasingly competitive. This book offers suggestions for developing a practice that is both unique and attractive to new and existing patients, and also to other providers. Additionally it helps to identify your practice's strengths and strategize how to best showcase your areas of expertise by providing examples and analyzing the skills of other practicing physcians. The Complete Business Guide for a Successful Medical Practice provides a roadmap for physicians to be not only good clinical doctors but also good businessmen and businesswomen. It will help doctors make a difference in the lives of their patients as well as sound financial decisions for their practice.

    This book provides up-to-date guidance on the diagnosis and treatment of the most important complex fractures of the limbs, including fractures of the proximal and distal humerus, fractures and dislocations of the elbow, fractures of the distal radius, pelvis, acetabulum, distal femur, proximal tibia, tibial pilon, calcaneus and osteoporotic knee fractures. The most complex articular fractures are analyzed, soft tissue coverage is reviewed, and the management of open fractures and nonunions is described and illustrated. Other chapters consider damage control management and immediate bone fixation in the polytrauma patient, skeletal reconstruction and rehabilitation of complex fractures of the limbs. The book offers guidance to orthopaedic surgeons on which treatment options afford the best preservation of fully functional joints around the fractured bone. With this goal in mind, the authors have developed strategies that can restore full articular function of the limbs in both the short and the long term. Complex Fractures of the Limbs will be an invaluable aid to orthopaedic surgeons in treating patients with this very common and important clinical problem.

    Complexities in Colorectal Surgery: Decision-Making and Management provides a unique, modern, practical guide that covers the strategic evaluation, specific approaches, and detailed management techniques utilized by expert Colorectal Surgeons caring for patients with complex problems whether they result from underlying colorectal disease or from complications arising from previous surgical therapy. The text is formatted as both a "how-to" manual as well as an algorithm-based guide allowing the reader to understand the thought process behind the proposed treatment strategies. By making use of evidence-based recommendations, each chapter will include not only diagnostic and therapeutic guidelines, but also a narrative by the author on his/her operative technical details and perioperative "tips and tricks" that they utilize in the management of these complex surgical challenges. This test includes chapters on the assessment of risk and nutritional intervention methods utilized to minimize perioperative complications. In addition, sections on medical and surgical therapies for abdominal, pelvic and anorectal disease are incorporated. Moreover, the technical challenges of managing complications resulting from the original or subsequent operations is addressed. The underlying focus throughout the text is to provide pragmatic and understandable solutions that can be readily implemented by surgeons of varying experience to successfully treat complex colorectal problems. The text also goes beyond the technical aspects of Colorectal Surgery and includes special sections highlighting the essence of a surgeon. These include chapters describing the importance of the first encounter, building patient rapport, and demonstrating confidence and competence while showing humility and avoiding arrogance. Additionally, aspects involving the medical-legal, ethical, and economic challenges confronting surgeons are covered.

    Ability to learn from errors is an essential aspect of the quest to improve treatment quality and patient safety. This book consists of 33 cases in anesthesiology that are based on real life situations and illuminate avoidable complications and mishaps. The cases are presented in a novel manner in that they are embedded within narratives. The reader comes to each case cold, without any clue as to the content, and each case comprises a narrative and a factual component that are interwoven. The narrative parts provide the reader with information and tips regarding the clinical problems and tasks that the protagonist must face and try to solve. The idea is to engage the reader emotionally while reading and to entertain him or her while learning. All cases conclude with short debriefing sections which include possible strategies to prevent similar errors or mishaps.

    How can one best master a rupture of the posterior capsule during cataract surgery? How should one operate on a dropped nucleus? What is the ideal management for a subluxated intraocular lens? If you are seeking answers to these and similar questions, then this is the book for you. Every surgeon is afraid of complications, but while complications cannot be entirely avoided, it is possible to learn to master them. This practical handbook clearly explains how to manage the various complications that may arise during cataract surgery. It provides the surgeon with clear instructions on how best to proceed in the manner of a cookbook, by first describing the ingredients (equipment) and preparation (planning) and then providing step by step descriptions of technique with the aid of numerous helpful color illustrations and several accompanying surgical videos. Surgical pearls and pitfalls are highlighted. Using this book, the reader will become a better and more complete cataract surgeon, well equipped to cope with the full range of potential complications.

    Written and edited by leading international authorities in the field, this book provides an in-depth review of knowledge of complications of CSF shunting, with emphasis on prevention, identification, and management. It covers the full range of shunt-related complications and the various associated adverse consequences that remain common despite significant improvements in imaging techniques and therapeutic methods. The chapters are organized into three parts: introduction, complications of extrathecal CSF shunt devices, and complications of endoscopy. In addition to providing clinicians and investigators with the most pertinent current evidence, the book looks forward to future areas of hydrocephalus research and to innovative therapeutic philosophies. This comprehensive reference book will be an ideal source for neurosurgeons seeking both basic and more sophisticated information and procedures relating to the complications associated with CSF shunting. It will also contribute in overcoming the problem of lack of knowledge of basic fluid dynamics and workings of the shunts ? knowledge that is essential for optimal care of hydrocephalic patients.

    Since the first edition of this book was published in 2004, the management of congenital heart disease has continued to evolve at a rapid pace. Not only have new operations been developed and expanded, such as the intra/extracardiac conduit Fontan and the double root translocation for corrected transposition, but in addition, diagnostic methods-particularly cardiac CT and MRI-have been dramatically transformed. Understanding of the genetic basis of congenital heart disease and the embryology of cardiac development has progressed even more rapidly. What has not changed is that optimal.

    This book introduces the reader to modern computational and statistical tools for translational epigenomics research. Over the last decade, epigenomics has emerged as a key area of molecular biology, epidemiology and genome medicine. Epigenomics not only offers us a deeper understanding of fundamental cellular biology, but also provides us with the basis for an improved understanding and management of complex diseases. From novel biomarkers for risk prediction, early detection, diagnosis and prognosis of common diseases, to novel therapeutic strategies, epigenomics is set to play a key role in the personalized medicine of the future. In this book we introduce the reader to some of the most important computational and statistical methods for analyzing epigenomic data, with a special focus on DNA methylation. Topics include normalization, correction for cellular heterogeneity, batch effects, clustering, supervised analysis and integrative methods for systems epigenomics. This book will be of interest to students and researchers in bioinformatics, biostatistics, biologists and clinicians alike. Dr. Andrew E. Teschendorff is Head of the Computational Systems Genomics Lab at the CAS-MPG Partner Institute for Computational Biology, Shanghai, China, as well as an Honorary Research Fellow at the UCL Cancer Institute, University College London, UK.

    Changes in frequency and/or biomarker expression in small subsets of peripheral blood cells provide key diagnostics for disease presence, status and prognosis. At present, flow cytometry instruments that measure the joint expression of up to 20 markers in/on large numbers of individual cells are used to measure surface and internal marker expression. This technology is routinely used to determine the frequencies of various marker-defined cell subsets in patient samples and is often used to inform therapeutic decision-making. Nevertheless, quantitative methods for comparing data between samples are sorely lacking. There are no reliable computational methods for determining the magnitude of differences among samples from different patients, among samples obtained from the same patient on different days, or between aliquots of the same sample measured before and after response to stimulation or other treatment. This thesis describes novel computational methods that provide reliable indices of change in subset representation and/or marker expression by individual subsets of cells. The methods we have developed utilize a non-parametric clustering algorithm, Density-Based Merging (DBM), that we developed to identify subsets (clusters) of cells that express a common set of markers measured independently for each cell by flow cytometry. To quantitate differences between these subsets, we introduce the application of Earth Movers Distance (EMD), an algorithm used to compare multivariate distributions borrowed from the image retrieval literature. The resultant methods are highly sensitive and reliable for identifying small marker expression differences between subset of cells in flow cytometry data sets. We show that these methods are easily applied and readily interpreted. Importantly, we demonstrate their practical utility with data from an allergy study in which the expression of two markers on very rare blood cells (basophils) in response to stimulation with an offending allergen indicates whether the patient is allergic to the stimulating antigen. In addition, we have developed novel evaluation criteria for assessing the performance of clustering algorithms on flow cytometry data by combining mixtures of cells identifiable by dimensions "hidden" from the algorithm that provide true cluster membership. Thus, we expect that the methods described here will introduce a new approach to using flow cytometry to measure biomarker changes as indices of drug response, disease susceptibility, disease progress and prognosis.

    This book focuses on applications of compound library design and virtual screening to expand the bioactive chemical space, to target hopping of chemotypes to identify synergies within related drug discovery projects or to repurpose known drugs, to propose mechanism of action of compounds, or to identify off-target effects by cross-reactivity analysis. Both ligand-based and structure-based in silico approaches, as reviewed in this book, play important roles for all these applications. Computational chemogenomics is expected to increase the quality and productivity of drug discovery and lead.

    Coarctation of the aorta is a congenital heart defect where a narrowing occurs in the thoracic aorta. Aortic coarctation accounts for approximately 5-10% of all congenital heart defects, affecting approximately 1 in 3000 newborns. While the condition has been recognized for over 70 years, many clinical questions still remain about the management of patients with aortic coarctation. There exists a need to investigate the complex hemodynamics associated with this disease using computational fluid dynamics to improve the diagnosis, treatment, and long-term management of these patients. First, computational simulations were used to determine the hemodynamic significance of various aortic arch obstructions, specifically to determine the significance of aortic hypoplasia, defined as long segment aortic narrowing, compared with aortic coarctation, defined as discrete narrowing. Ventricular workload was used as a metric for the degree of significance imposed by the narrowing. Results indicated that aortic hypoplasia was more significant that aortic coarctation when the same percent narrowing was considered. In addition, the simulations revealed that aortic hypoplasia consisting of 25-50% narrowing is not likely to be hemodynamically significant under resting conditions. Next, various treatment options were investigated by using simulations to compare surgical and stent-based treatment. In particular, stents placed in the aorta create a compliance mismatch because the stent is rigid and the aorta is deformable, so computational simulations were used to determine the significance of the mismatch. The results showed that the compliance mismatch associated with a rigid stent did not produce a clinically significant change in the required ventricular workload. This study refuted the claim that the compliance mismatch associated with stenting in aortic coarctation patients negatively impacts patient hemodynamics. Finally, patients with corrected aortic coarctation often suffer from hypertension and associated cardiovascular problems in the coronary and cerebral vessels. Computational simulations were used to determine the hemodynamics in the aorta, coronary, and cerebral vessels associated with hypertension and subsequent vascular remodeling. The results showed that hypertension induced with aortic coarctation is associated with nearly equal increases in mean pressure but different increases in pulse pressure throughout the model. This study revealed interesting and important information related to the hemodynamics in a large vascular model under the effects of hypertension and vascular wall remodeling. These studies showed the power of computational simulations to aid in the investigation of clinical questions regarding aortic coarctation.

    Recent advances in development of sequencing technology has resulted in a deluge of genomic data. In order to make sense of this data, there is an urgent need for algorithms for data processing and quantitative reasoning. An emerging in silico approach, called computational genomic signatures, addresses this need by representing global species-specific features of genomes using simple mathematical models. This text introduces the general concept of computational genomic signatures, and it reviews some of the DNA sequence models which can be used as computational genomic signatures. The text takes the position that a practical computational genomic signature consists of both a model and a measure for computing the distance or similarity between models. Therefore, a discussion of sequence similarity/distance measurement in the context of computational genomic signatures is presented. The remainder of the text covers various applications of computational genomic signatures in the areas of metagenomics, phylogenetics and the detection of horizontal gene transfer.

    "Preface Computational biofluiddynamics addresses a diverse family of problems involving fluid flow inside and around living organisms, organs and tissue, biological cells, and other biological materials. Numerical methods combine aspects of computational mechanics, fluid dynamics, computational physics, computational chemistry and biophysics into an integrated framework that couples a broad range of scales. The goal of this edited volume is to provide a comprehensive, rigorous, and current introduction into the fundamental concepts, mathematical formulation, alternative approaches, and predictions of computational hydrodynamics of capsules and biological cells. The book is meant to serve both as a research reference and as a teaching resource. Scope The numerical methods discussed in the following eight chapters cover a broad range of possible formulations for simulating the motion of rigid particles (platelets) and the flow-induced deformation of liquid capsules and cells enclosed by viscoelastic membranes. Although some of the physical problems discussed in different chapters are similar or identical, the repetition is desirable in that solutions produced by different numerical approaches can be compared and the efficiency of alternative formulations can be assessed. The consistency of the results validates the procedures and offers several alternatives"--Provided by publisher.

    Modern anatomical medical imaging technologies, such as computed tomography and magnetic resonance, capture structures of the human body in exquisite detail. Computational anatomy is a developing discipline to extract and characterize the anatomy from images. Unfortunately, anatomical images do not reveal the functional behavior. Computational physiology shows great potential to link the structure-function relationship by considering both the anatomical information and the physical governing laws. The simulated physiology can be used to assess physiological states, and more importantly predict the outcomes of interventions. On the other hand, advances in the functional imaging techniques provide measured physiology information and should be utilized together with computational physiology. In the theme of computational anatomy and physiology, this dissertation describes computational methods of modeling vascular geometry for image-based blood flow computation and tracking pulmonary motion for image-guided radiation therapy. Blood flow computation is a useful tool to quantify in vivo hemodynamics. The essential first step is to model vascular geometry from medical imaging data. I have developed a new workflow for this task. The geometric model construction is based on 3D image segmentation and geometric processing. To represent the topology of the constructed model, I have developed a novel centerline extraction method. To account for compliant vessels, methods to assign spatially-varying mechanical properties of the vessel wall are also developed. The workflow greatly increases the modeling efficiency. The combination of the patient-specific geometry and wall deformation can enhance the fidelity of blood flow simulation. Image-based blood flow computation also holds great promise for device design and surgical procedure evaluation. Next, I have developed novel virtual intervention methods to deploy stents or stent grafts to patient-specific pre-operative geometric models constructed from medical images. These methods enable prospective model construction and may be used to evaluate the outcomes of alternative treatment options. Respiratory motion is closely related to the physiology of the lung. Finally, I have developed a novel framework to track patient-specific pulmonary motion from 4D computed tomography images. A large set of vascular junction structures in the lung are identified as landmarks and tracked to obtain their motion trajectories. This framework can provide accurate motion information, which is important in radiation therapy to reduce healthy tissue irradiation while allowing target dose escalation. This work demonstrates the importance of the geometry and motion modeling tools in computational anatomy and physiology. Accurate physiological information, whether simulated or measured, will benefit the diagnosis and treatment of various diseases.

    Computational structural biology is a field that involves modeling of physical interactions between complex biological macromolecules in the aqueous environment in the cell. We model the solvent (water) environment around biological macromolecules, to better understand the physical interactions needed to improve methods of protein structure prediction and, more generally, for the protein folding problem. In this thesis, we model the effect of solvent environment on protein structure refinement using implicit and explicit water models. Specifically we used the Generalized Born Surface Area (GBSA) implicit water model and the SPC and TIP4P explicit water models with the all-atom OPLS force field. We also used the knowledge-based (KB) statistical potential functions, derived from high-resolution X-ray crystals of protein structures. The KB potentials include the affect of solvent implicitly, in that the distribution of distances between atoms in protein crystals is effected by the water in the unit cell. These potentials and water models were tested for refinement of an extensive set of protein structures, using energy minimization and molecular dynamics. Energy minimization with GBSA outperformed KB potential energy minimization, in that large magnitude of refinement was observed. Energy minimization with KB potential was more consistent, in that it refined more protein structures than GBSA. We also tested our computationally inexpensive KB energy minimization in the refinement category at the eight world-wide experiments on Critical Assessment of techniques for protein Structure Prediction (CASP) that performed well. We performed a consistency test on the all the predicted protein structure models by all groups at CASP that improved streorechemistry and refined models for the best performing groups. This warrants the use of this simple and computationally inexpensive, but consistent refinement protocol to act as a natural "end" step for all participating groups at CASP. Accurate description of the water structure around the solute of interest could improve our understanding of various biological processes such as protein folding. We study the hydration of hydrophobic solutes of varying sizes (methane, benzene, cyclohexane and Buckminsterfullerene) with Molecular Dynamics (MD) simulations using a recently introduced state-of-the-art quantum general purpose quantum mechanical polarizable force field (QMPFF3) fitted solely to high-level quantum mechanical data at MP2/cc-pVTZ level with a simple model correction using CCSD(T) data for higher accuracy of aromatic carbon atom type. We ask how well the hydrophobic affect is represented in classical force fields when compared to a more rigorous quantum mechanical force field. Polarization increases ordered water structure, in that the imprint of the hydrophobic surface extends to long range effect (up to 10Å for Buckminsterfullerene). Similar surface water affects, with less ordering are also observed for classical force fields. Most of the water molecules point their dipole moment away from the hydrophobic solutes but often one OH bond points towards the hydrophobic solute surface. The major conclusion from this study is that a quantum mechanical force field increases the strength of the hydrophobic effect; this could have a profound affect on protein folding.

    Proteins are biomolecules that play a key role in a wide diversity of vital functions, such as metabolism and signal transmission. Each protein is a linear chain of amino acids that folds into a flexible three-dimensional structure. Protein's flexibility is widely believed to be essential for its function. Motion of a protein occurs at timescales that span several orders of magnitude. Thermal fluctuations, which occur in picoseconds, are small-amplitude, uncorrelated, harmonic motions of the individual atoms. In contrast, conformational deformations closely related to the protein's function occur in microseconds to milliseconds. These slow deformations are usually large-scale, correlated, anharmonic motions that correspond to transitions between meta-stable states, such as binding and non-binding states. In this dissertation we are mainly interested in modeling structural heterogeneity associated with such slow deformations. This dissertation presents new computational methods to study the flexibility of folded protein in the context of three important biological problems: (a) Loop sampling, (b) Interpretation of electron density maps, and (c) Determination of allosteric pathways. Computational modeling of structural heterogeneity in the folded state of a protein is a challenging problem, mainly because of the high-dimensionality of the protein's conformation space and the very small relative volume of its feasible motion space. Although our methods are specific to each of the three problems, they share the same sample and select approach: they combine efficient sampling algorithms that allow us to represent structural heterogeneity in a folded protein by a collection of sampled conformations and selection algorithms that allow us to reliably pick the sampled conformations that provide a solution to the problem. This dissertation demonstrates the power of geometric computation and efficient sampling to model structural heterogeneity in the folded protein.

    It is well known that blood vessels exhibit viscoelastic properties. Vessel wall viscoelasticity is an important source of physical damping and dissipation in the cardiovascular system. There is a growing need to incorporate viscoelasticity of arteries in computational models of blood flow which are utilized for applications such as disease research, treatment planning and medical device evaluation. However, thus far the use of viscoelastic wall properties in blood flow modeling has been limited. As part of the present work, arterial wall viscoelasticity was incorporated into two computational models of blood flow: (1) a nonlinear one-dimensional (1-D) model and (2) a three-dimensional (3-D) fluid-solid interaction (FSI) model of blood flow. 1-D blood flow model: In blood flow simulations different viscoelastic wall models may produce significantly different flow, pressure and wall deformation solutions. To highlight these differences a novel comparative study of two viscoelastic wall models and an elastic model is presented in this work. The wall models were incorporated in a nonlinear 1-D model of blood flow, which was solved using a space-time finite element method. The comparative study involved the following applications: (i) Wave propagation in an idealized vessel with reflection-free outflow boundary condition; (ii) Carotid artery model with non-periodic boundary conditions; (iii) Subject-specific abdominal aorta model under rest and exercise conditions. 3-D FSI blood flow model: 3-D blood flow models enable physiologic simulations in complex, subject-specific anatomies. In the present work, a viscoelastic constitutive relationship for the arterial wall was incorporated in the 3-D Coupled Momentum Method for Fluid-Solid Interaction problems (CMM-FSI). Results in an idealized carotid artery stenosis geometry show that higher frequency components of flow rate, pressure and vessel wall motion are damped in the viscoelastic case. These results indicate that the dissipative nature of viscoelastic wall properties has an important impact in 3-D simulations of blood flow. Future work will include simulations of blood flow in patient-specific geometries such as aortic coarctation (a congenital disease) to assess the impact of wall viscoelasticity in clinically relevant scenarios. In the present work, arterial viscoelasticity has been incorporated in 1-D and 3-D computational models of blood flow. The biomechanical effects of wall viscoelasticity have been investigated through idealized and subject-specific blood flow simulations. These contributions are significant and suggest the potential importance of wall viscoelasticity in blood flow simulations for clinically relevant applications.

    The medical specialty of pathology is focused on the transformation of information extracted from patient tissue samples into biologically informative and clinically useful diagnoses to guide research and clinical care. Since the mid-19th century, the primary data type used by surgical pathologists has been microscopic images of hematoxylin and eosin stained tissue sections. Over the past several decades, molecular data have been increasingly incorporated into pathological diagnoses. There is now a need for the development of new computational methods to systematically model and integrate these complex data to support the development of data-driven diagnostics for pathology. The overall goal of this dissertation is to develop and apply methods in this new field of Computational Pathology, which is aimed at: 1) The extraction of comprehensive integrated sets of data characterizing disease from a patient's tissue sample; and 2) The application of machine learning-based methods to inform the interpretation of a patient's disease state. The dissertation is centered on three projects, aimed at the development and application of methods in Computational Pathology for the analysis of three primary data types used in cancer diagnostics: 1) morphology; 2) biomarker expression; and 3) genomic signatures. First, we developed the Computational Pathologist (C-Path) system for the quantitative analysis of cancer morphology from microscopic images. We used the system to build a microscopic image-based prognostic model in breast cancer. The C-Path prognostic model outperformed competing approaches and uncovered the prognostic significance of several novel characteristics of breast cancer morphology. Second, to systematically evaluate the biological informativeness and clinical utility of the two most commonly used protein biomarkers (estrogen receptor (ER) and progesterone receptor (PR)) in breast cancer diagnostics, we performed an integrative analysis over publically available expression profiling data, clinical data, and immunohistochemistry data collected from over 4,000 breast cancer patients, extracted from 20 published studies. We validated our findings on an independent integrated breast cancer dataset from over 2,000 breast cancer patients in the Nurses' Health Study. Our analyses demonstrated that the ER-/PR+ disease subtype is rare and non-reproducible. Further, in our genomewide study we identified hundreds of biomarkers more informative than PR for the stratification of both ER+ and ER- disease. Third, we developed a new computational method, Significance Analysis of Prognostic Signatures (SAPS), for the identification of robust prognostic signatures from clinically annotated Omics data. We applied SAPS to publically available clinically annotated gene expression data obtained from over 3,800 breast cancer patients from 19 published studies and over 1,700 ovarian cancer patients from 11 published studies. Using these two large meta-datasets, we applied SAPS and performed the largest analysis of subtype-specific prognostic pathways ever performed in breast or ovarian cancer. Our analyses led to the identification of a core set of prognostic biological signatures in breast and ovarian cancer and their molecular subtypes. Further, the SAPS method should be generally useful for future studies aimed at the identification of biologically informative and clinically useful signatures from clinically annotated Omics data. Taken together, these studies provide new insights into the biological factors driving cancer progression, and our methods and models will support the continuing development of the field of Computational Pathology.

    In this thesis, I describe three main contributions I have made toward creating more accurate systems for the computational recognition of protein-coding genes. First, I present N-SCAN, a gene predictor based on a hidden Markov model that uses Bayesian networks to model multiple alignments. I also describe CONTRAST, a discriminative gene predictor based on a conditional random field and a set of support vector machines for recognizing coding region boundaries. Both N-SCAN and CONTRAST represented substantial improvements over the state-of-the-art at the time they were introduced. Additionally, I give an algorithm for training conditional random fields that maximizes an approximation to labelwise accuracy, as opposed to the usual maximum likelihood approach. This algorithm proved key to CONTRAST's success.

    The rapid rise in obesity in the US over the last several decades parallels a decrease in infectious disease incidence and a rise in antimicrobial usage. The role of the microbiome--which is influenced by both disease and by biocidal chemicals--on body weight is of increasing interest. We desired to quantify effects of changes in disease patterns and microbiome shifts on body weight of the population; however, no population-level model of body weight existed. Drawing from a collection of literature describing models of individual body weight, a model was built to quantify weight changes across the population using publicly available data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES). The model used an energy balance perspective, quantifying energy intake and expenditure. First, dietary data was obtained to describe energy intake. Dietary data comes primarily from self-report and is notoriously inaccurate as individuals tend to under-estimate their food consumption. A dataset was obtained from a study where participants had completed dietary recall surveys and had had energy expenditure measured. Using this as a "training dataset", Chapter 3 describes two predictive models developed which adjust dietary intake to a more biologically plausible range. The models were validated, with a simulation of NHANES data, for their ability to produce estimates within bounds established a priori. They produced substantially more realistic estimates than those derived from the raw data. With better estimates of energy intake, a simulation model of body weight in a population was built (Chapter 4). A population was drawn from NHANES which represented a realistic cross-section of the U.S. population based on age, sex, and survey sampling weights. Energy intake and expenditure were tracked for each individual in the model, and an excess or deficiency of energy was converted to a gain or loss of body weight. The effect of ageing on the weight distribution of the population was calculated. The excess energy necessary to produce the shift in the body weight distribution of the US population over a 20-year period was estimated. The effect of an infectious agent's alteration of energy intake and expenditure and associated body weight was also calculated. Finally, the relationship between NHANES data on triclosan and body mass index (BMI) was studied (Chapter 5). Triclosan is a biocide that likely affects the gut microbiome. The effect of triclosan on BMI in a linear regression was studied with triclosan expressed in two ways: (1). as a binary variable (present vs. absent) and (2). in quartiles (in order to assess whether increased quantity of triclosan led to a trend in BMI). Triclosan presence was found to be associated with an increase in BMI. By quartile, BMI was higher in lower levels of triclosan compared to higher levels, suggesting the possibility of multiple mechanisms of action.

    A new method to evaluate bone rigidity and strength using tomographic bone images obtained via QCT (Quantitative Computed Tomography) is introduced. A newly developed computer program named VA-BATTS is used for image processing, bone segmentation, mesh creation, material assignment and calculation of far field normal and shear stresses as well as other cross sectional properties. In order to calculate torsional and transverse shear stresses in prismatic bodies having inhomogenous material properties, a new two-dimensional finite element formulation to estimate is presented. The formulation combines the torsional and transverse shear problem solutions and adds terms to account for the material inhomogeneity into one Weak Form of the problem, further discretized to yield a numerical approximation of the shear stresses problem. Results were validated using analytical models as well as three dimensional commercial code test cases yielding mean errors over the entire domain of less than 1%. This semi-automated application is publicly distributed and can be downloaded from https://simtk.org/home/va-batts. VA-BATTS implements an elliptical stress failure criterion to predict bone strength. To validate, fifty-two fresh frozen femurs were tested under combined three-point bending and torsion to failure. VA-BATTS was able to predict bone failure under combined bending and torsion (R2=0.68) as well as bone torsional (R2=0.80) and bending (R2=0.50) rigidity. Using multivariate analysis that combined the elliptical stress failure and the torsional and bending rigidities, the prediction confidence level was raised (R2=0.87), comparable to existing more complex three dimensional finite element studies. The elliptical stress criterion suggests that the distal femur is weaker, in absolute terms, than the midshaft femur suggesting an explanation of the increased rate of distal femur fractures in patients with Spinal Cord Injury. In general, the newly introduced method proved to yield more accurate predictions compared to DXA derived Bone Mineral Density measurements (R2=0.56). Fracture patterns were analyzed to show mostly spiral patterns where torsional loads were applied. In addition, the accuracy of three point bending experiments was examined. Three parameters that may introduce errors in the predictions - transverse shear, local deformation (indentation) as well as cross sectional deformation effect -- were studied using a parametric finite element model. The model shows that depending on the geometric properties of the bone, errors as high as 75% may be introduced in the estimation of the bone elastic modulus. Bone rigidity estimates may now be corrected using the correction factors supplied in this study.

    Computer-assisted surgery is a growing sub-discipline of orthopaedic surgery. This book offers a comprehensive presentation of scientific work and clinical experience including new technologies like individual templating in unicompartmental and total knee arthoplasty based on computer-assisted design technology. Computer-assisted surgery involves not only total knee and total hip arthroplasty, but also trauma, sports and revision surgery. In this edition we have added sections on 3D fluoroscopy-based spinal surgery as well as 3D fluoroscopy-based trauma surgery. Even in total hip surgery, navigation systems offer exciting new aspects, and the clinical benefit of navigation in total knee arthroplasties has now been demonstrated. We believe that this textbook will be of interest to those new to this specific field, while also providing an update for experienced users. An added benefit is the international character of this textbook, including experiences from Switzerland, Israel, the United States and the German-speaking countries.
