    RWJF and the Advisory Committee hosted a listening tour of five "Learning What Works" events in diverse cities across the country: Philadelphia; Phoenix; Des Moines, Iowa; San Francisco; and Charleston, South Carolina. A broad spectrum of individuals--from health care providers to researchers to community service providers to business leaders interested in using data to improve their health and the health of their communities--attended these five events. The forums generated key observations and examples, as well as many questions around using, exchanging, and protecting data and what individuals and communities want and need in order to improve health or foster connections between different sectors. These observations provided the basis for the Advisory Committee's findings and recommendations, which are detailed in this report.

    Small molecule drugs continue to be an important part of medical therapy. However, their use is plagued by the onset of unexpected side effects, often seen only in late-stage clinical trials or after release to the market. As a result, there have been a number of high profile drug withdrawals because of side effects. More worrisome, however, are side effects that result from drug-drug interactions (DDIs). It is very difficult to empirically study DDIs before drugs enter the market because of the small samples of co-prescribed drugs in most late stage clinical drug (Phase III) studies. Some DDIs can be predicted based on knowledge of shared pathways of metabolism--such as when two drugs share a metabolizing enzyme and so the effective levels of one or both drugs are affected by saturation of the enzyme. But many DDIs are more idiosyncratic and difficult to predict. The most difficult cases are those in which two drugs produce a synergistic effect not seen with either drug alone. Thus, I created surveillance methods to detect unexpected DDIs, relying on clinical databases--both electronic medical records and spontaneous adverse event reporting systems. Understanding DDIs has an additional benefit for drug discovery. If two drugs have a synergistic effect, they may shed new light on the molecular mechanisms of their action or of the diseases they treat. If we use a model not of "one drug-one target" but of multiple interacting cellular pathways that respond to drugs ("the network is the target"), then we can leverage DDIs for the study of disease. However, to do this we need new ways to probe and understand these pathways, such as studying the unexpected synergies between drugs in observational reporting systems. Thus it would be extremely valuable to have computational methods that link adverse events to molecular events. The emergence of large databases linking drugs, diseases, drug effects, demographics and genes offers a new opportunity to create informatics methods for greater understanding small molecule effects at the clinical and biological level. I describe studies in which I have shown the great power of integrating these databases. In particular, I used the FDA Adverse Events Reporting System (FDA-AERS) to discover a signal for abnormal glucose in patients taking both paroxetine and pravastatin. Paroxetine is a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor antidepressant. Pravastatin is an HMG CoA reductase inhibitor cholesterol-lowering drug. Neither is typically associated with hyperglycemia. Based on my analysis of the FDA-AERS, I examined patient electronic medical records in three separate hospitals (Stanford, Harvard, Vanderbilt), and demonstrated a striking increase in glucose levels on patients on both drugs, compared to their glucose levels on only one of the drugs. I also showed that mice on these two drugs have increased glucose. I am working with FDA to consider a potential update to the drug labels. Although this discovery illustrates the power of clinical data mining, the databases I used are filled with biases that make their use treacherous. I believe there are many similarly valuable discoveries to be made in these databases. However, only with careful attention to systematic biases can I ensure that the predictions I make are valid. In this thesis I describe methods to address the major informatics challenges to detecting and understanding the effects of taking multiple drugs at once. In particular, I have shown that I can (1) remove the bias introduced by unmeasured confounding variables, (2) improve the detection of drug interactions in cases of low or even non-reporting, (3) link drug effects to genes through chemical informatics methods, and (4) validate new drug effects using novel retrospective and prospective studies. The work forms an infrastructure that is useful to (1) pharmacogenomics scientists wishing to understand drug action at the molecular level, (2) pharmacologists wishing to better understand the effects of drugs singly and in combination, and (3) regulatory agencies wishing to understand the efficacy and safety of drugs and drug-interactions at a population level.

    Data is revolutionizing the healthcare industry. With more data available than ever before, and applying the right analytics you can spur growth. Benefits extend to patients, providers, and board members, and the technology can make centralized patient management a reality. Despite the potential for growth, many in the industry and government are questioning the value of data in health care, wondering if it's worth the investment. This book tackles the issue and proves why BI is not only worth it, but necessary for industry advancement. Madsen challenges the notion that data has little value in healthcare, and shows how BI can ease regulatory reporting pressures and streamline the entire system as it evolves. She illustrates how a data-driven organization is created, and how it can transform the industry. -- Edited summary from book.

    This dissertation develops data-driven methods for healthcare risk modeling to facilitate risk identification and evaluation, focusing on post-marketing drug safety surveillance and breast cancer incidence prediction. For risk identification, we first propose a novel methodology for post-marketing drug safety surveillance: "Follow the money'', which monitors cost in health insurance claims data to detect increased spending related to adverse drug events (ADE). By using real claims data from 2.4 million insured individuals, we demonstrate that this method enables early detection of signals of ADE. Second, we recommend statistical study designs to detect rare and time-dependent ADE resulting from long-term drug use and highlight statistical considerations that drug surveillance designers should focus on when implementing a long-term surveillance. We characterize statistical properties and compare performances of a variety of surveillance designs by applying them to simulated event data as well as real health insurance claims data. For risk evaluation, we develop a stochastic simulation model of the Surveillance, Epidemiology and End Results database to quantify the impact of menopausal hormone therapy (MHT) on U.S. breast cancer incidence. Our model quantifies the promoting effect of MHT on breast tumor growth and the reduced mammographic detectability. By modeling unobservable tumor natural history dynamics and simulating individual life history at a population level, we evaluate the contribution of MHT use cessation to the observed decline in breast cancer incidence between 2002 and 2003. We also predict U.S. breast cancer incidence in the absence of MHT.

    More than two million medical students, doctors and other health professionals from around the globe have owned a copy of Davidson's Principles and Practice of Medicine since it was first published. Today's readers rely on this beautifully illustrated text to provide up-to-date detail of contemporary medical practice, presented in a style that is concise and yet easy to read. Davidson's provides the factual knowledge required to practise medicine, explaining it in the context of underlying principles, basic science and research evidence, and shows how to apply this knowledge to the management of patients who present with problems rather than specific diseases. The book has won numerous prizes including being highly commended in the British Medical Association book awards. Davidson's global perspective is enhanced by the input of an international team of authors and a distinguished International Advisory Board from 17 countries. Building on the foundations laid down by its original editor, Davidson's remains one of the world's leading and most respected textbooks of medicine. The underlying principles of medicine are described concisely in the first part of the book, and the detailed practice of medicine within each sub-specialty is described in later system-based chapters. Most chapters begin with a two-page overview of the important elements of the clinical examination, including a manikin to illustrate the key steps in the examination of the relevant system. A practical, problem-based clinical approach is described in the 'Presenting Problems' sections, to complement the detailed descriptions of each disease. The text is extensively illustrated, with over 1000 diagrams, clinical photographs, and radiology and pathology images. 1350 text boxes present information in a way suitable for revision, including 150 clinical evidence boxes summarising the results of systematic reviews and randomised controlled trials and 65 'In Old Age' boxes highlighting important aspects of medical practice in the older population. A combined index and glossary of medical acronyms contains over 10 000 subject entries. The contents can also be searched comprehensively as part of the online access to the whole book on the StudentConsult platform. Access over 500 self-testing questions with answers linked to the book's content for further reading. The text uses both SI and non-SI units to make it suitable for readers throughout the globe.

    Although cancer types vary widely, the number of new cancer drugs each year is severely limited. Even for those cancer therapies which are currently in use, prognostic outcomes vary significantly across cancer types. Drug discovery relies primarily on our knowledge of direct drug targets, but not the systematic off-target effects that these therapies may have. As a result, our knowledge of these drugs is somewhat limited to general mechanistic classes. Within these classes it is hard to find potential patient differences without time-intensive studies and trials. While drug classification relies on our knowledge of direct targets, it does not typically consider how a number of global cellular processes are ultimately affected. Quantifying the mechanistic differences between drugs is a difficult process. Current standards to quantify individual drug efficacy are large-scale measurements are taken at a heterogeneous population level, ignoring the effects of drug action or mechanism in single cells or cell populations. Because our knowledge is limited in this way, we are often surprised to find that similarly classified cancer drugs can have disparate effects in patients. Single-cell technologies including flow cytometry allow us to uncover relationships between drugs through simultaneous measurement of cell signal, cell cycle and cell type for each cell. Recent technological advances in flow cytometry have facilitated new clinical tests to determine cancer subtypes. In addition, these methodological advances have created potential for providing novel insights into drug mechanism and patient response. In this dissertation, I describe a new framework for performing mechanistic profiling of cancer cells. There are two facets of this problem. The first is an understanding of cancer cell cycle. Prior to treating with a drug, it is important to form a general model of how a cancer cell replicates. In a screening methodology, however, this is a difficult problem. I address this problem by building an automated, de novo model of cell cycle. Second, I perform cancer therapeutic profiling by measuring DNA damage, apoptosis, cell cycle, and cell signaling markers across multiple cancer cell types. In this thesis, I combine both cell cycle and drug profiling methods into a new drug profiling framework that can be used to find existing and novel cell cycle and drug-based biology. The results of our current work have major implications for use in profiling aberrant cell types in primary cancer samples, as well as mechanistic drug screening.

    Despite advances in health care, infectious microbes continue to be a formidable adversary to scientists and doctors. Vaccines and antibiotics, the mainstays of modern medicine, have not been able to conquer infectious microbes because of their amazing ability to adapt, evolve, and spread to new places. Terrorism aside, one of the greatest dangers from infectious disease we face today is from a massive outbreak of drug-resistant microbes. Deadly Outbreaks recounts the scientific adventures of a special group of intrepid individuals who investigate these outbreaks around the world and figure out how to stop them. Part homicide detective, part physician, these medical investigators must view the problem from every angle, exhausting every possible source of contamination. Any data gathered in the field must be stripped of human sorrows and carefully analyzed into hard statistics. -- Jacket.

    "The true story of the war on cancer from one of its generals In The Death of Cancer, Dr. Vincent T. DeVita Jr.--former director of the National Cancer Institute, former physician-in-chief at Memorial Sloan Kettering, director of the Yale Cancer Center, former president of the American Cancer Society, and developer of the first successful chemotherapy treatment for Hodgkin's lymphoma, which first demonstrated that advanced cancers of a major organ system in adults could be cured by chemotherapy--provides a personal history of one of the greatest science stories of our time, covering our fight against cancer from a man who's seen it all. But this is more than a history; it's also a work of advocacy. Despite declining mortality rates, DeVita argues, America's cancer patients are being shortchanged by timid doctors, misguided national agendas, and compromised bureaucracies. He gives readers an eye-opening look at the strengths and weaknesses of America's most prestigious cancer centers, showing how patients can use this information to their advantage. Though we're rapidly approaching total victory over cancer, he contends, we need to do more to synthesize our progress and help doctors put it into practice. This is an ambitious book about a life-or-death subject, a vital entry into the cancer literature genre. With historical depth and authenticity, DeVita brings important information to readers about what cancer is, how best to fight it, and what we still have to learn"-- Provided by publisher.

    Current economic, demographic, and environmental shifts are presenting major challenges to health care systems around the world. In response, decentralization--the transfer of control from central to local authorities--is emerging as a successful means of meeting these challenges and reducing inequities of care. But as with health care itself, one size does not fit all, and care systems must be responsive to global reality as well as local demand. Decentralizing Health Services explores a variety of applications of decentralization to health care delivery in both the developing and developed worlds. Outfitted with principles, blueprints, and examples, this ambitious text clearly sets out the potential role of decentralized care as a major player in public health. Its models of service delivery illustrate care that is effective, inclusive, flexible, and in tune with the current era of preventive and evidence-based healthcare. Contributors point out opportunities, caveats, and controversies as they: Clarify the relationships among decentralization, politics, and policy Differentiate between political, fiscal, and administrative decentralization in health care systems. Consider public/private partnerships in health systems. Explain how the effects of decentralization can be evaluated. Present the newest data on the health outcomes of decentralization. Explore some challenges and global issues of health systems in the 21st century. And each chapter features learning goals, discussion questions, activities, and recommendations for further reading. Heralding changes poised to revolutionize care, Decentralizing Health Services will broaden the horizons of researchers and administrators in health services, health economics, and health policy.

    Limb threatening trauma to the leg may be treated with either limb salvage (retention process) or amputation (prosthetic process). Limb salvage allows the patient to keep his leg and avoid using a prosthetic; however, it typically has higher probabilities than amputation of complications, additional time in the hospital, and chronic pain. The optimal treatment is still under debate and the current methods to make the decision do not explicitly incorporate the patient's preferences or the patient's medical insurance. This dissertation develops a decision analysis model to help a patient think clearly about the retention process vs. the prosthetic process. The model updates conditional probabilities of various outcomes based on the patient's demographics and develops a method to explicitly incorporate the patient's preferences for keeping the leg, avoiding chronic pain, and avoiding time in the hospital. The model also calculates the probabilities of hospital and prosthetic costs for the patient's health insurance and risk attitude. The decision analysis model in this dissertation utilizes preferences from the patient to inform the decision, facilitates effective discussions between the doctor and the patient, and provides a comprehensive recommendation to the patient.

    A look at the recent oncology literature or a search of one of the common databases reveals a steadily increasing number of nomograms and other prognostic models, some of which are also available in the form of web-based tools. These models may predict the risk of relapse, lymphatic spread of a given malignancy, toxicity, survival, et cetera Pathology information, gene signatures, and clinical data may all be used to compute the models. This trend reflects increasingly individualized treatment concepts and also the need for approaches that achieve a favorable balance between effectiveness and side-effects. Moreover, optimal resource utilization requires prognostic knowledge, for example to avoid lengthy and aggressive treatment courses in patients with a short survival expectation. In order to avoid misuse, it is important to understand the limits and caveats of prognostic and predictive models. This book provides a comprehensive overview of such decision tools for radiation oncology, stratified by disease site, which will enable readers to make informed choices in daily clinical practice and to critically follow the future development of new tools in the field.

    The ultimate goal of regenerative medicine is to repair tissues damaged by aging, injury or disease. Tissue-specific adult stem cells constitute a reservoir of cells in postnatal tissue that have the remarkable capacity to proliferate and repair tissue damage because they can both self-renew, or produce more stem cells, and differentiate into mature cells. Adult stem cells have been identified in a variety of tissues, including blood, brain, skin, intestine, and muscle and methods exist to prospectively isolate these populations by flow cytometry. Upon transplantation, they possess an extraordinary ability to contribute extensively to tissue regeneration. Notably, adult stem cells are a relatively rare cell population and methods to propagate and expand these cell types in culture without loss of regenerative capacity are lacking, a hurdle to their clinical use. In vivo, stem cells reside in an instructive microenvironment, or niche, which serves to regulate fate decisions, including quiescence, self-renewal, and differentiation. Given the complexity of their native environment, it is not surprising that upon removal from their niche they rapidly lose regenerative capacity. While the role of biochemical signals in regulating stem cell fate and function has been widely explored, the effects of biophysical signals have not been discerned. To elucidate the role of matrix elasticity in regulating adult stem cell fate, we first design a biomimetic hydrogel culture platform to mimic tissue elasticity and physiologic presentation of biochemical cues. Adapting a previously described conjugate addition reaction, poly(ethylene glycol) hydrogel substrates are fabricated which have a Young's modulus that is tunable in the physiologic range (1-50kPa). Gels are designed to have limited post-polymerization swelling to enable constant density of tethered biological ligands. Utilizing this tunable hydrogel culture platform, we provide the first definitive evidence that matrix elasticity regulates adult stem cell self-renewal in culture. Using a combination of culture studies and in vivo functional assays in mice, we demonstrate that substrate rigidity profoundly impacts the self-renewal potential of tissue-specific adult stem cells isolated from skeletal muscle and bone marrow. In contrast with rigid tissue culture plastic in which regenerative potential is lost, we demonstrate that culture on a pliant hydrogel substrate maintains the 'stemness' of muscle stem cells (MuSCs) and hematopoetic stem cells (HSCs). Further, we describe a novel in vivo screen and identify an extracellular matrix molecule which, in conjunction with soft hydrogel, has a previously unrecognized role in regulating HSC fate. These studies demonstrate that recapitulating tissue rigidity, a key component of the in vivo microenvironment, enables propagation of functional adult stem cells in culture for the first time. We expect these experimental approaches will be broadly applicable to other adult stem cell types and ultimately will profoundly impact regenerative medicine by enabling generation of functional stem cell populations for use in clinical cell-based therapies.

    Meniscal degeneration often precedes cartilage degeneration, and effective detection and treatment can be critical in preventing osteoarthritis. The meniscus is a heterogeneous tissue, and obtaining information on the varying characteristics of meniscal regions is important in investigating such strategies. However, no current method exists that can detect such meniscal heterogeneity in the tissue matrix. In addition, the lack of quantitative information on meniscal heterogeneity hinders the development an effective, long-term solution that can treat degeneration in the meniscus. The purpose of this dissertation was thus 1) to find quantitative characteristics that defined meniscal heterogeneity and 2) to evaluate non-invasive diagnostic methods that could reflect the matrix tissue properties and detect meniscal heterogeneity. To accomplish the first goal, gene expression profiles of meniscal cells were statistically analyzed to identify quantitative markers that could distinguish between different regions of the meniscus, describing its heterogeneous properties. This information was then used to evaluate cell sources for meniscal tissue engineering, demonstrating the potential application of these quantitative markers in developing an effective treatment for meniscal degeneration. Secondly, in order to detect meniscal heterogeneity, which is reflected in the changing tissue properties within the tissue, magnetic resonance imaging was used. The potential of the imaging parameters T1[rho] and T2 relaxation times in detecting various meniscal tissue properties, including the matrix composition and mechanical properties, was examined. Ultimately, such information would be useful in identifying internal degenerative changes that take place in the matrix of the tissue prior to macroscopic injuries. In this study, both T1[rho] and T2 relaxation times showed variation with tissue properties but were highly correlated with one another, indicating that only one imaging parameter might be necessary as a diagnostic tool in a clinical setting. In addition, an exploratory aim visualized the internal secondary collagen network in the meniscus and examined its deformation in different mechanical loading positions. This work significantly adds to the understanding of the heterogeneous properties of the meniscus and the potential of magnetic resonance imaging parameters as detection markers. It contributes to the advancement of diagnosis and treatment strategies for meniscal degeneration, which has further implications for preventing osteoarthritis progression.

    Glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) is the most common and deadly primary brain tumor. Amplification and rearrangements of the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) gene are frequently found in GBM, and the most common variant is EGFRvIII. Here we report that EGFRvIII is a novel cancer stem cell (CSC) or tumor initiating cell marker in GBM. EGFRvIII expression is restricted to sub-regions and sporadic cells within the tumor and EGFRvIII is frequently co-expressed in the putative CSC CD133+ population. EGFRvIII gene and protein expression can be maintained when primary GBM are cultured as tumor derived neurospheres and is lost when spheres are exposed to differentiating conditions. Furthermore, cells that express both EGFRvIII and CD133 display the greatest self-renewal and tumor initiating abilities when compared to the single positive or double negative populations. If amplification and rearrangement are early events in tumorigenesis, this implies that they should be preserved across the tumor despite focal expression. Unexpectedly, we found EGFR amplification and rearrangement throughout the tumor, including regions with no EGFRvIII expression. To study this phenomenon, we characterized three GBM cell lines with endogenous EGFRvIII expression. EGFRvIII defined a hierarchy and epigenetic mechanisms played a role in maintaining heterogeneous EGFRvIII expression, suggesting that drugs which modulate the epigenome might be used successfully in glioblastoma tumors. To assess a broad applicability of our findings to other tumor types, we investigated EGFRvIII expression and amplification in primary breast carcinoma. Our analyses confirmed the presence of EGFRvIII, but in the absence of amplification or rearrangement of the EGFR locus. Interestingly, EGFRvIII was often expressed in a subset of tumor cells and was co-expressed in the putative CSC CD44+/CD24-/low population. EGFRvIII-expressing cells had increased expression of stem cell and epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) associated genes and increased in vitro sphere formation and in vivo tumor formation compared to non-expressing cells. Mechanistically, EGFRvIII mediated its effects through the Wnt/[beta]-catenin pathway. Collectively, this data suggests a novel function for EGFRvIII in tumorigenesis and further supports the use of EGFRvIII-targeted therapy in these tumor types.

    Segmentation of anatomical structures in medical image data is an essential task in clinical practice. Dagmar Kainmueller introduces methods for accurate fully automatic segmentation of anatomical structures in 3D medical image data. The author's core methodological contribution is a novel deformation model that overcomes limitations of state-of-the-art Deformable Surface approaches, hence allowing for accurate segmentation of tip- and ridge-shaped features of anatomical structures. As for practical contributions, she proposes application-specific segmentation pipelines for a range of anatomical structures, together with thorough evaluations of segmentation accuracy on clinical image data. As compared to related work, these fully automatic pipelines allow for highly accurate segmentation of benchmark image data. Contents Deformable Meshes for Accurate Automatic Segmentation Omnidirectional Displacements for Deformable Surfaces (ODDS) Coupled Deformable Surfaces for Multi-object Segmentation From Surface Mesh Deformations to Volume Deformations Segmentation of Anatomical Structures in Medical Image Data Target Groups Academics and practitioners in the fields of computer science, medical imaging, and automatic segmentation. The Author Dagmar Kainmueller works as a research scientist at the Max Planck Institute of Molecular Cell Biology and Genetics in Dresden, Germany, with a focus on bio image analysis.

    "With rapid advancement in technology and materials in total knee arthroplasty (TKA), long-term survival and function of the total knee is now more and more dependent on restoring accurate limb alignment, precise component position and optimum soft-tissue balance. Proper technique is key to ensuring this and is all the more crucial and challenging to achieve in arthritic knees with severe and complex deformities. Correction of such knee deformities forms an important part of TKA for orthopedic surgeons working in both emerging and developed nations. Deformity Correction in Total Knee Arthroplasty fills the void that exists in treating severe and complex knee deformities and the use of computer-navigation in TKA. It covers the principles of deformity correction and soft-tissue balancing in primary TKA in an illustrative, step-wise and algorithmic fashion. Starting with the initial key step of preoperative planning, this book goes on to specifically describe how to deal with different types of deformities encountered in patients who undergo TKA - varus, valgus, flexion, hypertension, rotational and extra-articular deformities - as well as the stiff knee, the unstable knee, osteotomies in primary TKA and postoperative pain management and rehabilitation. This focused how-to manual includes plentiful images and clear, concise text from authors who have performed thousands of TKAs, making it a must-have reference for any surgeon unfamiliar or frequently confronted with this type of procedure."--Publisher's website.

    Osteoarthritis is a debilitating disease that affects 27 million Americans. Major risk factors for osteoarthritis include mechanical injury and obesity. Prolonged exposure to mechanical overload in the knee joint, either by injury, malalignment, or obesity, is associated with early onset of osteoarthritis. Recent evidence demonstrates that adipose tissue is a metabolically active and produces systemic biofactors known as adipokines associated with numerous diseases including cardiovascular disease, hypertension, insulin resistance, rheumatoid arthritis, and osteoarthritis. Interestingly, obesity is a significant risk factor for hand osteoarthritis, suggesting a biologic link between obesity and osteoarthritis that is perhaps mediated through adipokines. While many studies investigating in vitro osteoarthritic degradation have focused on cartilage tissue, the menisci has received relatively little attention despite it's important functional role in joint stability and load transfer in the knee. The purpose of this thesis was to explore the relative susceptibility of cartilage and meniscal tissue degradation to in vitro mechanical overload and adipokine exposure using an immature bovine tissue explant model. To explore the injury response, explants of cartilage and meniscal tissues were compressed at various strain rates to create a spectrum of peak injury forces and cultured for up to nine days post-injury. To investigate whether adipose tissue and adipokines can biochemically induce changes in cartilage and meniscal tissues, explants of cartilage and meniscal tissue were incubated with infrapatellar fat pad or individual adipokines and assessed for altered matrix metabolism. Overall, results indicate that, while mechanically robust, meniscal tissue is vulnerable to biologic damage induced by mechanical overload and adipokines. We also demonstrate for the first time that meniscal tissue is more catabolically sensitive to adipokines than cartilage tissue. These results provide evidence that obesity-driven degradation of knee joint could be biochemically mediated and suggest meniscal degradation as a possible early event in osteoarthritis development.

    Defining organs at risk is a crucial task for radiation oncologists when aiming to optimize the benefit of radiation therapy, with delivery of the maximum dose to the tumor volume while sparing healthy tissues. This book will prove an invaluable guide to the delineation of organs at risk of toxicity in patients undergoing radiotherapy. The first and second sections address the anatomy of organs at risk, discuss the pathophysiology of radiation-induced damage, and present dose constraints and methods for target volume delineation. The third section is devoted to the radiological anatomy of organs at risk as seen on typical radiotherapy planning CT scans, with a view to assisting the radiation oncologist to recognize and delineate these organs for each anatomical region head and neck, mediastinum, abdomen, and pelvis. The book is intended both for young radiation oncologists still in training and for their senior colleagues wishing to reduce intra-institutional variations in practice and thereby to standardize the definition of clinical target volumes.

    "In the United States, approximately 14 million people have had cancer and more than 1.6 million new cases are diagnosed each year. However, more than a decade after the Institute of Medicine (IOM) first studied the quality of cancer care, the barriers to achieving excellent care for all cancer patients remain daunting. Care often is not patient-centered, many patients do not receive palliative care to manage their symptoms and side effects from treatment, and decisions about care often are not based on the latest scientific evidence. The cost of cancer care also is rising faster than many sectors of medicine--having increased to 125 billion in 2010 from 72 billion in 2004--and is projected to reach 173 billion by 2020. Rising costs are making cancer care less affordable for patients and their families and are creating disparities in patients' access to high-quality cancer care. There also are growing shortages of health professionals skilled in providing cancer care, and the number of adults age 65 and older--the group most susceptible to cancer--is expected to double by 2030, contributing to a 45 percent increase in the number of people developing cancer. The current care delivery system is poorly prepared to address the care needs of this population, which are complex due to altered physiology, functional and cognitive impairment, multiple coexisting diseases, increased side effects from treatment, and greater need for social support. Delivering High-Quality Cancer Care: Charting a New Course for a System in Crisis presents a conceptual framework for improving the quality of cancer care. This study proposes improvements to six interconnected components of care: (1) engaged patients; (2) an adequately staffed, trained, and coordinated workforce; (3) evidence-based care; (4) learning health care information technology (IT); (5) translation of evidence into clinical practice, quality measurement and performance improvement; and (6) accessible and affordable care. This report recommends changes across the board in these areas to improve the quality of care. Delivering High-Quality Cancer Care: Charting a New Course for a System in Crisis provides information for cancer care teams, patients and their families, researchers, quality metrics developers, and payers, as well as HHS, other federal agencies, and industry to reevaluate their current roles and responsibilities in cancer care and work together to develop a higher quality care delivery system. By working toward this shared goal, the cancer care community can improve the quality of life and outcomes for people facing a cancer diagnosis."--Publisher's description.

    This concise, pragmatic, pocket-sized book addresses neurological contributions to the diagnosis and management of dementia through a longitudinal examination of the work undertaken in a dedicated neurological dementia clinic. It covers the use of cognitive and non-cognitive screening instruments and their diagnostic utility and the use of other diagnostic investigations: neuroimaging, neurophysiology and neuropathology. The diagnostic mix is discussed in terms of both neuropsychological syndromes and neurological diagnoses, as is the use of conventional treatments for dementia and the impact of national directives (e.g. NICE, National Dementia Strategy) on day-to-day clinical practice. Dementia in Clinical Practice: A Neurological Perspective, Second Edition is an illustrated, practical resource for medical professionals involved in the assessment and management of dementia patients. It is of particular benefit to neurologists, psychiatrists, geriatricians, primary care practitioners and those working in the fields of neuropsychology, psychology, occupational therapy, speech and language therapy and nursing.

    "Since the second edition of Dengue haemorrhagic fever: diagnosis, treatment, prevention and control was published by the World Health Organization (WHO) in 1997, the magnitude of the dengue problem has increased dramatically and has extended geographically to many previously unaffected areas. It was then, and remains today, the most important arthropod-borne viral disease of humans. Activities undertaken by WHO regarding dengue are most recently guided at the global policy level by World Health Assembly resolution WHA55.17 (adopted by the Fifty-fifth World Health Assembly in 2002) and at the regional level by resolution CE140.R17 of the Pan American Sanitary Conference (2007), resolution WPR/RC59.R6 of the WHO Regional Committee for the Western Pacific (2008) and resolution SEA/RC61/R5 of the WHO Regional Committee for South-East Asia (2008). This new edition has been produced to make widely available to health practitioners, laboratory personnel, those involved in vector control and other public health officials, a concise source of information of worldwide relevance on dengue. The guidelines provide updated practical information on the clinical management and delivery of clinical services; vector management and delivery of vector control services; laboratory diagnosis and diagnostic tests; and surveillance, emergency preparedness and response. Looking ahead, some indications of new and promising avenues of research are also described. Additional and more detailed specific guidance on the various specialist areas related to dengue are available from other sources in WHO and elsewhere, some of which are cited in the references. The contributions of, and review by, many experts both within and outside WHO have facilitated the preparation of this publication through consultative and peer review processes. All contributors are gratefully acknowledged, a list of whom appears under "Acknowledgements". These guidelines are the result of collaboration between the WHO Department of Control Neglected Tropical Diseases, the WHO Department of Epidemic and Pandemic Alert and Response, and the Special Programme for Research and Training in Tropical Diseases. This publication is intended to contribute to prevention and control of the morbidity and mortality associated with dengue and to serve as an authoritative reference source for health workers and researchers. These guidelines are not intended to replace national guidelines but to assist in the development of national or regional guidelines. They are expected to remain valid for five years (until 2014), although developments in research could change their validity, since many aspects of the prevention and control of dengue are currently being investigated in a variety of studies. The guidelines contain the most up-to-date information at the time of writing. However, the results of studies are being published regularly and should be taken into account. To address this challenge, the guide is also available on the Internet and will be updated regularly by WHO." - p. v.

    Adipose tissue is found in diverse depots throughout the human body. The diversity of physiological specialization of these fat depots is reflected in the diverse depot-specific alterations seen in lipodystrophies and links between specific patterns of fat distribution and susceptibility to diseases, including Type II Diabetes and coronary artery disease. Previous studies, although focused on only 2 major fat depots (omental and abdominal subcutaneous), have identified numerous differences in metabolic, endocrine and developmental programs. We carried out a more extensive and higher resolution investigation of the anatomic specialization of white adipose tissue, based on 59 samples collected from 7 anatomically diverse fat depots, from 56 individuals. Using DNA microarrays we measured relative abundance of ~25,000 distinct mRNAs in each adipose tissue sample and in adipocytes and stromal-vascular cells isolated from each sample, and compared their gene expression patterns with ~120 samples representing diverse non-adipose tissues. Adipocytes from different regions of the body displayed distinct gene expression profiles. Characteristic patterns of expression of HOX genes distinguished adipocyte samples by site of origin; these patterns were recapitulated when adipocyte precursors from each site were cultured and differentiated ex vivo, suggesting that these genes may have a role in programming and/or maintaining depot-specific differentiation of adipocytes. Expression in adipocytes of 300 genes with major roles in energy metabolism showed both depot-dependent and inter-individual variation. Some of the patterns suggested important differences among anatomic depots in metabolic roles. For example, a set of genes involved in lipid uptake and storage and hormone-regulated lipolysis were generally most highly expressed in breast, pericolonic and omental adipocytes whereas genes involved in glycogen metabolism and de novo fatty acid synthesis were generally most highly expressed in breast and abdominal subcutaneous adipocytes, suggesting that these depots play a role as glucose buffers. Dozens of genes known or predicted to encode secreted molecular signals were highly expressed in adipocytes compared to either adipose stromal-vascular cells or other organs; many of these were differentially expressed among adipocyte depots. Some of these genes appear to be good candidates for encoding novel adipokines. In summary, we found extensive variation among adipose depots, as well as inter-individual variation, in global gene expression. Differences in genes linked to development, metabolism and cell-cell communication suggest new hypotheses relevant to depot-specific and general aspects of adipocyte biology.

    Depression ranks as a leading mental health problem among Hispanic immigrants and their US-born children. And a wide array of issues - starting with the widespread stereotype of the "illegal immigrant" - makes the Latino experience of this condition differ from that of any other group. Depression in Latinos consolidates the conceptual, diagnostic, and clinical knowledge base on this salient topic, providing coverage from prevalence to prevention, from efficient screening to effective interventions. In this concise yet comprehensive volume, leading clinicians, researchers, and academics offer extensive research and clinical findings, literature reviews (e.g., an in-depth chapter on the Mexican American Prevalence and Services Survey), and insights gathered from first-hand experience in clinical practice. Perceptive information is offered on the most urgent and complex issues on depression in this diverse and dynamic population, including: (1) the impact language, culture, and societal factors have on depression and its diagnosis; (2) the most relevant assessment instruments; (3) how depression manifests among Latino children, youth, and seniors as well as in Latinas; (4) the relationship between depression and substance abuse; (5) the most effective evidence-based treatment methods; and (6) the efficacy of interventions for depression at the community level.

    The degradation of misfolded secretory proteins is ultimately mediated by the ubiquitin-proteasome system in the cytoplasm, therefore endoplasmic reticulum-associated degradation (ERAD) substrates must be dislocated across the ER membrane through a process driven by the AAA ATPase p97/VCP. Derlins recruit p97/VCP and have been proposed to be part of the dislocation machinery. Here we report that Derlins are inactive members of the rhomboid family of intramembrane proteases and bind p97/VCP through C-terminal SHP boxes. Human Derlin-1 harboring mutations within the rhomboid domain stabilized mutant [alpha]-1 antitrypsin (NHK) at the cytosolic face of the ER membrane without disrupting the p97/VCP interaction. We propose that substrate interaction and p97/VCP recruitment are separate functions that are essential for dislocation and can be assigned respectively to the rhomboid domain and the C terminus of Derlin-1. These data suggest that intramembrane proteolysis and protein dislocation share unexpected mechanistic features.

    "Novel drug delivery technologies strive to bypass challenging biological layers to elicit desired pharmacological activity. The skin, one of our key defensive barriers, is imperfect, and may allow certain topically applied substances or toxins to pass. The dermatokinetics of a drug determines the efficacy of treatment of skin disorders. Presenting the first comprehensive reference on this important area of research, Dermatokinetics of Therapeutic Agents includes a general overview of the theoretical as well as practical aspects of dermatokinetics and addresses the impact of nature of a drug delivery system on the dermatokinetics of drugs. Chapters and illustrations cover the introductory aspects significance, methods, and models used in dermatokinetic studies of therapeutic agents.Topics include: Theoretical Models for Dermatokinetics of Therapeutic Agents; Drug Delivery Approaches to Modulate Dermatokinetics of Drugs; Conventional Methods of Cutaneous Drug Sampling; Cutaneous Microdialysis; Sampling Substrates by Skin Permeabilization; Spectroscopic Techniques in Dermatokinetics Studies; Regulatory Perspective of Dermatokinetic Studies"--Provided by publisher.

    A balance between complexity and functional capabilities has been explored since the first years of multi-fingered robotic hands. In an age where DC motors are the de facto standard for actuation in robotics, the problem of needing to operate in a human-sized world puts severe constraints and limits on actuator size and placement in hands. While many successful examples of fully-actuated designs exist, these designs generally reflect the trade-offs and sacrifices imposed by such constraints. In that light, underactuation, employing fewer actuators than degrees of freedom, has gained attention as a method to achieve many of the functional capabilities of fully-actuated hands with fewer constraints on actuators and transmissions. Underactuated hands also have distinct advantages over fully actuated hands, especially when used on mobile robots, due to their reduced weight and control complexity, and the potential for increased robustness. However there is typically a trade-off in terms of reduced controllability or manipulability when handling grasped objects. When designing underactuated hands, extra care must be taken during the design process to ensure that such hands will grasp a wide range of object sizes and shapes robustly, particularly when friction is low and uncertain. Despite these concerns, underactuated hands have become increasingly popular in robotic and prosthetic applications. Robotic hands are also a venue in which novel, secondary mechanisms are often found. Devices such as differentials, valves, clutches, and low-power, shape-changing actuators have been used to improve grasp robustness on a wider range of objects and allow users more grasping and manipulation options. However, the location and placement of secondary actuators has not been studied in a comprehensive way with respect to the types of actuation methods possible. This is due in part to the lack of general analytic tools which enable designers to rapidly investigate their designs prior to the prototyping stage. Additionally, much of the analysis in the field of robotic hands is done once basic design choices have already been made, making subsequent analyses specific only to a set of design parameters specific to those choices. The same point can be made regarding quality metrics, which suffer from fragmented utilization due to the many different emphases placed on different design requirements. The primary goal of this thesis is to provide a framework for the analysis and evaluation of underactuated robotic hands. The first chapter discusses both the broad motivations for studying robotic hands and the specific contributions of this thesis. The next chapter reviews relevant designs from literature, analyses that have accompanied them, uses of secondary devices in underactuated hands, and the progress that dynamics simulators have made towards representing reality. In the next chapters, the issues related to modeling abstract, generic hand designs is discussed, and a kinematic framework is introduced to derive the force relationships between actuator and grasped object for many mechanisms commonly encountered in underactuated hands. Chapter 6 discusses difficulties associated with solving static force equations, and several methods are introduced to accomplish this. The last of these options relies on three-dimensional rigid-body dynamic simulations to evaluate the performance of compliant, underactuated mechanisms which may encounter conditions such as coulomb friction in contact and and damping at the joints. In the next chapters, these force relationships are derived and discussed for specific hand designs in the context of a force-field representation, and several performance metrics are derived which measure a hand's ability both to acquire and retain objects. The benefits of secondary actuation mechanisms are then discussed with two specific examples. First is the SRI/Stanford/Meka hand, a tendon-driven, compliant, underactuated hand capable of locking individual joints. Second is a mechanism implemented on the Seabed Hand, which increases the range of graspable objects and allows users to selectively change grasp properties based on their specific control needs. Finally, the impacts of friction are discussed, and the trends from simulations are compared with experimental data. From these experiments the benefits of secondary mechanisms can be demonstrated in a frictional world as well.

    This dissertation describes the design, implementation, and experimentation of an autonomous free-climbing robot, Capuchin. The objective of our project is to create a multi-limbed robot capable of climbing vertical terrain autonomously using techniques similar to those used by human free climbers. When a "free" climber climbs a steep crag or an artificial climbing wall, she uses nothing else but her hands and feet to make contact with terrain features such as holes, cracks, ledges or protrusions. Unlike "aid" climbing, which uses special equipments, tools, or engineered features, free climbing only relies on friction at the contacts between the climber and the terrain. In order to make a multi-limbed robot climb in a similar way, four fundamental challenges must be addressed: robot design, sensing, motion planning and motion control. Our work focuses on robot design (including sensors) and motion control. However, our robot, Capuchin, is an integrated system including a simplified sensing system and a pre-existing motion planner running off-line. A good robot design can increase the inherent ability of the robot to climb complex terrain. It may also lead to better performance and make other issues easier, such as motion planning and control. A four-limb structure was chosen after consideration of the robot's capability and complexity. Simulation was used during the design process to optimize performance, in particular to maximize the workspace reachable by the end-effectors (fingers). Sensors have been selected to allow the robot to both acquire information about the terrain and control its motion. Each finger is equipped with a camera. Vision feedback allows the robot controller to accurately dock the finger on a terrain feature at a location computed by the planner. It also allows modifying a planned trajectory in real-time, when the terrain differs slightly from the model that had been used by the planner or when other small errors occur (for instance, if the robot slips slightly at a contact). Each finger is additionally equipped with a force sensor that gives the magnitude and orientation of the reaction force at a contact. The four force sensors are used by the robot controller to maintain the robot in quasi-static equilibrium, by adjusting the robot posture and the joint torques when needed, so that the reaction forces at the contact point continuously within their Coulomb friction cones. A two-stage motion planner previously developed by Bretl and Hauser for free-climbing and other multi-limbed robots navigating on challenging and irregular terrain is used in this work. This planner decomposes a climbing motion into a sequence of moves, each performed with a fixed set of robot-terrain contacts (this set is called a "stance"). The transition at the end of each move consists of either breaking a contact or making a new one. The planner first computes a sequence of stances. Next it computes a trajectory for the move to be performed at each stance. If it fails to find a move at one step, it considers another sequence of stances. The core part of our research has been the design of the motion controller. The main problem we had to solve is a multi-contact force control problem. One of our most important findings has been the following: for quasi-static climbing, it is not necessary, even not desirable, to continuously control the forces exerted by the robot at the contact points. Instead, it is preferable to continuously monitor these forces and perform joint torque adjustments only when some reaction forces get too close to the boundaries of the friction cones or to their maximal magnitude. This strategy was not obvious when we started our research. In fact, we first developed a motion controller that continuously adjusted joint torques to keep measured reaction forces as close as possible to the terrain normals at the contact points. But computing these adjustments is rather time consuming. Moreover, this approach leads the robot to perform delicate adjustments frequently. As a result, robot motion was neither as smooth, nor as reliable as we would have liked. Instead, our new approach, which we call "lazy" force control, leads to a faster servo rate and much smoother motion. Our experiments show that on average adjustments only amount for a small percentage (less than 10%) of the total time spent climbing. They also demonstrate that Capuchin can reliably climb vertical artificial climbing walls autonomously and can handle small errors in the terrain model used by the planner.

    Using hybrid x-ray/MR (XMR) systems for image guidance during interventional procedures can enhance the diagnosis and treatment of neurologic, oncologic, cardiovascular, and other disorders. XMR suites have become more available, with various vendors offering dual-modality solutions. These systems combine the three-dimensional imaging capabilities and excellent soft tissue contrast provided by MR with the high spatial/temporal resolution and accurate device tracking provided by x-ray. To eliminate system compatibility concerns, the suites typically have long travel distances between MR and x-ray components. As a result, switching between modalities requires shuttling the patient several meters from one system to the other. Because patients typically have critically placed monitoring systems and intravenous lines for drug delivery and anesthesia, the cumbersome shuttling process impedes repeated switching between the modalities. To circumvent the hurdles associated with alternating between modalities, we proposed a close proximity hybrid system design in which a c-arm fluoroscopy unit is placed immediately adjacent to a closed bore MR system with a minimum distance of 1.2 meters between the x-ray and MR imaging field of views. Placing the x-ray system so close to the MR bore requires an x-ray tube capable of operating in a relatively strong MR fringe field environment. Existing rotating anode x-ray tube designs fail within MR fringe field environments because the magnetic fields alter the electron trajectories in the x-ray tube and act as a brake on the induction motor, reducing the rotation speed of the anode. In my work, I have developed (1) techniques to correct for the altered electron trajectories and (2) a novel motor design that eliminates the reduced rotation speed of the anode. Altering electron trajectories between the cathode and anode affects the location, size, and shape of the x-ray tube focal spot on the anode. I proposed a combination of approaches to control the trajectories. First, I derived an active magnetic shielding design using constrained optimization techniques that minimizes power consumption and heat deposition in the external deflection coils. I then adapted my shielding design to include rare earth permanent magnets, to further reduce the power and size requirements of the coils. Finally, I designed a split-focusing cup that controls the electron trajectories via electrostatic mechanisms, providing an alternative that is more space efficient and MR-compatible. High rotation speed of the anode is needed for sufficient instantaneous heat loading on the target area, to achieve the needed x-ray tube output. There is currently no available motor design to rotate the anode in the expected magnetic environment. To solve this problem, I designed a new motor that operates efficiently within the fringe field. The design is analogous to a modified three-pole brushed DC motor, with the radial component of the MR fringe field replacing the permanent magnet stator field used in conventional brushed DC motors. The motor support bearings provide rotating electrical contacts, while feedback signals from a position sensor control electrical commutation. A vacuum compatible prototype of the proposed motor design was assembled, and its performance was evaluated at various field strengths and orientations. Combining the control mechanisms for the electron trajectories with the new motor design yields a robust x-ray tube capable of operating in fringe fields with magnitudes on the order of 0.1 to 0.2 T.

    Optical MEMS (Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems) is an enabling technology that realizes miniaturized optical systems with high functionality and excellent performance. In this dissertation, two novel miniaturized optical systems are presented for applications in optical communication and biomedical imaging. In Part I, a multi-functional MEMS tunable optical filter are described, which is a key element for dynamic wavelength provisioning in reconfigurable optical networks and communication systems. This filter is built based on MEMS platform technology that allows large vertical mirrors (311 [mu]m x 450 [mu]m x 40 [mu]m) to be micro-assembled on actuated platforms to enable compact tunable optical filters with large apertures and high-quality optical mirrors with very low scattering losses. Besides, electrostatic combdrive actuators connected to the MEMS platforms provide independent and continuous control of the center wavelength and the optical bandwidth. The filter has been tested by integrating it in a 10Gb/s communication system. The performance of the MEMS tunable filter is demonstrated for amplified spontaneous emission (ASE) rejection and wavelength selection. In PART II, a 3-D MEMS scanning system utilizing 2-D lateral and 1-D vertical MEMS scanners is introduced for use in miniature in vivo dual-axis confocal (DAC) microendoscopes, which is an emerging biomedical-imaging technology with high resolution, good tissue penetration, large field of view, and ability to provide both reflectance and fluorescence contrast images. Both MEMS scanners are fabricated exclusively by front-side processing to enable compact and robust structures that facilitate handling and packaging for miniaturized optical instrumentation. Co-operation of a 2-D lateral scanner and a 1-D vertical scanner enables fast 3-D microscopy over a volume that measures 340[mu]m by 236[mu]m by 286[mu]m. This part describes the principle of the all-MEMS-based 3-D scanning DAC microscopy that gives the functionality of OCT (real-time vertical cross-section imaging) to a confocal microscope.

    Over the last several years advances and miniaturization of technology have allowed legged robots to move from the research laboratory to the real world, as evidenced by the large number of flexible platforms only recently available. These platforms are successful, but fall short of capitalizing on the biggest advantage of legs: the ability for high speed locomotion over unstructured terrain. Additionally, no current articulated legged robot is able to perform both static and truly dynamic locomotion, as the actuation technology is not conducive to these two very different regimes of operation. Currently, machines that are dynamic are unable to walk or position themselves accurately, and machines that function very well with static motions are unable to move dynamically. The bipedal robot TRIP (Tendonized Running Inspired Platform) was built to study dynamic maneuvering and control of an articulated legged robot with high-inertia legs. Each leg includes an inelastic tendon which couples ankle joint rotations to knee joint rotations, resulting in simplified effective dynamics and control, and a high degree of passive stabilization with dynamic maneuvers. A hybrid pneumatic-electric actuator was built and tested while driving a knee joint; this actuator is capable of precise positioning, as well as highly energetic thrusting. It will be shown that static and dynamic maneuvers are attainable with a tendon-coupled ankle, and that a tendon allows simpler dynamic control through the concept of impulse compensation, and through the use of passive stabilization from the kinematics resulting from the tendon. Second, it will be shown that the hybrid actuator is superior in some respects to current available technology, both by specification, and by experimental results of static and dynamic maneuvers achieved through its use. And third, using a general heuristic-based control algorithm developed for various sized bipedal machines, dynamic maneuvers are possible with a high leg-to-body moment of inertia ratio, which would show that the control strategy takes into account the dynamics of the legs during high speed locomotion.

    Biological barriers prevent the uptake of many potentially harmful xenobiotics yet also limit the delivery and cellular entry of a variety of drugs to their targets. One approach to this problem selects only those compounds with appropriate properties, namely solubility in polar biological fluids yet also able to pass through the nonpolar cellular membrane. This restriction would therefore preclude the use of many polar (e.g. siRNA) and nonpolar (e.g. Taxol) compounds whose inherent physical properties cause problems with formulation, distribution or bioavailability. The research described herein utilizes an alternative strategy that involves molecular transporters, which are agents that, when attached to poorly soluble or poorly bioavailable drugs, produce conjugates that exhibit excellent water solubility and simultaneously an increased ability to cross tissue and cell barriers. Bioactivatable molecular transporter conjugates of the immunosuppressant drug Cyclosporin A incorporating disulfide linkers were developed, evaluated for their biological activity in vitro, and administered topically in an in vivo mouse model. In addition to the inherent physical properties limitation that prevents drug passage across the cell membrane, another significant contributor to the failure of many therapeutics is the overexpression of membrane proteins (e.g. P-glycoprotein or Pgp) that mediate the unidirectional efflux of drugs out of target cells, often doing so prior to the drug reaching its intracellular target. Bioactivatable oligoarginine transporter conjugates of Taxol, a substrate for Pgp, were prepared and shown to overcome efflux-mediated resistance in primary human ovarian cancer tissue ex vivo. The encapsulation of transporter conjugates inside biodegradable polymeric nanoparticles was also investigated as a way to achieve sustained release of transporter drug conjugates over extended periods of time, thereby avoiding metabolism or toxicity problems associated with a bolus administration of therapeutic agents. Nanoparticles encapsulating transporter-probe conjugates were formed using two different methods, and shown to release their encapsulated cargo over time under biologically relevant conditions.

    The protein kinase C isozyme family has been implicated in a number of diseases representing the majority of the most significant challenges to global human health, including cancer, neurodegenerative diseases (Alzheimer's disease, depression, schizophrenia, etc.), cardiovascular disease, HIV/AIDS, diabetes, and chronic pain. As such, potent and selective modulation of this enzyme family using small molecule ligands designed for a particular function has tremendous therapeutic potential. A number of agents have been identified as ligands for the C1 domain of protein kinase C. Many of these compounds, including the endogenous ligand diacylglycerol and the complex bryostatin family of natural products, act by inducing an initial activation event, resulting in the translocation of protein kinase C to the plasma membrane where it can participate in the phosphorylation of downstream serine and threonine residues. The bryostatins are complex macrolides isolated from the marine organism Bugula neritina. Although a number of agents from this family of natural products have been shown to be biologically active, bryostatin 1 in particular has garnered tremendous therapeutic interest owing to its remarkable potency and activity profile. Specifically, bryostatin 1 has been shown to stimulate apoptosis, bolster the immune system, reverse multidrug resistance, synergize with other anticancer agents, enhance memory and learning in rodent models through the induction of synapse formation (synaptogenesis), reverse the effects of stroke in animal models, and induce latent HIV in vitro. As a result of this activity profile, bryostatin 1 is currently in phase I and II clinical trials for cancer treatment and is being advanced to the clinic for the treatment of Alzheimer's disease. However, despite its remarkable clinical potency (often ~ 1 mg is required for a 8 week treatment cycle in humans), the extremely low supply of bryostatin 1 prohibits its continued human clinical use and investigation for the treatment of additional therapeutic indications. In an effort to address the issues associated with the supply and unoptimized nature of a number of complex natural product protein kinase C ligands, the Wender group developed a pharmacophore model for C1 domain binding in the mid 1980s. This resulted in the design and synthesis of highly simplified, functional protein kinase C ligands based on the diacylglycerol scaffold. Additionally, structurally simplified, synthetically accessible bryostatin analogs were designed and shown to have comparable or even superior potency relative to bryostatin 1 for protein kinase C binding and in vitro anticancer activity. Described herein is the design, synthesis, and biological evaluation of a series of macrocyclic diacylglycerol analogs in an effort to improve protein kinase C affinity by reducing the entropic penalty of the binding event relative to the endogenous linear diacylglycerols. The binding affinity was found to be highly dependent on macrocycle size, with the most potent analog being up to two orders of magnitude more potent than the linear diacylglycerols (consistent with previous reports). Moreover, these analogs were prepared in a step-economical fashion (3-4 steps from commercial materials). Additionally, the design and synthesis of members of the first series of B-ring tetrahydropyran bryostatin analogs produced in the Wender group is reported. The use of a novel, high yielding Prins macrocyclization allowed for the retention of the synthetic convergency that has become a hallmark of the B-ring dioxane analogs produced previously in the Wender group. Several compounds from this B- ring tetrahydropyran class were found to be among the most potent analogs produced to date (with respect to protein kinase C affinity and in vitro anticancer activity). Despite the high potency and synthetic accessibility of the previously reported bryostatin analogs, these compounds lacked the ability to activate protein kinase C isozymes (as measured by their ability to induce the translocation of the enzyme from the cytosol to the plasma membrane) with a high degree of selectivity but were not equally non-selective either. The ability to tune isozyme selectivity has tremendous therapeutic potential and, in an effort to address this challenge, a series of A-ring functionalized, B-ring tetrahydropyran analogs was designed and synthesized using the Prins macrocyclization methodology. It was found that the C8 geminal dimethyl group on the A-ring in combination with C7 hydroxyl functionality imparts selectivity for the conventional protein kinase C [Beta]I over the novel protein kinase C [lowercase Delta}. Alternatively, C8 geminal dimethyl functionality in combination with C7 acetate functionality results in a high degree of non-selectivity for these isoforms. C13 functionalization was found to increase the potency of this already highly active analog class. Finally, several of the B-ring tetrahydropyran bryostatin analogs were shown to synergize with taxol in a human leukemia cell line. Additionally, a lead B-ring dioxane bryostatin analog was shown to be capable of inhibiting tumor growth in vivo in a transgenic mouse lymphoma model. Protein kinase C was implicated in this activity by monitoring the phosphorylation of downstream proteins as well as by performing inhibitor studies. This lead analog was also shown to induce apoptosis in a number of human B- and T-lymphocytes. The apoptotic induction observed in the murine cell line used for this pilot in vivo study was found to be independent of direct cell cycle effects. Significantly, this represents the first academic report of bryostatin analog efficacy and safety in vivo.

    My graduate studies have focused on the design, synthesis, and biological evaluation of novel probe and drug delivery technologies. This research has explored the development of new molecular transporter scaffolds with a focus on step economy and translational costs as well as evaluation of their uptake and delivery properties in cells and animals. Chapter 1 provides a historical context and overview of guanidinium-rich molecular transporter technology. Chapter 2 describes the development of a new family of guanidinium-rich oligocarbonate molecular transporter which are flexibly and efficiently assembled by a one-step oligomerization strategy. These novel oligocarbonate transporters were shown to exhibit excellent uptake properties both in cells and animal models. Chapter 3 is directed at the utility of an oligomerization approach to generate molecular transporters by the design, synthesis, and evaluation of new aphipathic co-oligomers for the delivery of siRNA, an oligonucleotide cargo of intense therapeutic interest. Amphipathic carbonate co-oligomers were prepared by an oligomerization strategy and demonstrated to effectively package, deliver, and release functional siRNA in cells. Chapter 4 describes the effects of a branched guanidinium array on the transport and delivery efficiency of releasable dendrimeric guanidinium-rich transporters. These transporters were synthesized and demonstrated to deliver and release a small molecule for turnover by its intracellular target enzyme by bioluminescence assays in cells and transgenic animal models. Chapter 5 describes the design, synthesis, and preliminary biological evaluation of lipidated molecular transporter derivatives of the immunosuppressant drug rapamycin for topical delivery.

    My graduate studies have focused on the development of novel drug delivery technologies of research, clinical, and industrial significance. More specifically, my research has focused on the design, synthesis, and application of guanidinium-rich molecular transporters for the delivery of siRNA into cells. My studies have also focused on using molecular transporters to develop the first molecular method to deliver cargo into algae, and on the development of new strategies to control the timing and amount of drug or probe release in cells. Though all of this research is fundamentally based on organic chemistry, these projects have broad applications in research, industrial and clinical settings. Chapter 1 reviews the strategies that have been developed for the delivery of siRNA in both cells and animals. Rather than divide the field by chemical type (e.g. peptide vs. protein) or disease indication, this review categorizes siRNA deliver agents by the identity of their cationic moiety for siRNA complexation. Guanidinium-containing delivery vectors are presented, as are vectors containing ammonium and phosphonium groups. Highlighting this field by cationic moiety reveals how little research has been done to compare the effects of the cation's identity on deliver efficacy, toxicity, and pharmacokinetics. Chapter 2 describes the design, synthesis, and evaluation of guanidinium-rich amphipathic oligocarbonate molecular transporters for the complexation, delivery, and release of siRNA in cells. The synthetic ease of the metal-free carbonate oligomerization to synthesize these transporters afforded fast access to a series of transporters that systematically probed the functionality required for effective complexation, delivery, and release of siRNA. Transporters were characterized and evaluated for biological activity in immortalized human keratinocytes. The transporters discovered in this study were highly effective, with target gene silencing of up to 90% observed. Chapter 3 focuses on efforts towards expanding the scope of both the chemical space and cell types tested in the delivery of siRNA with amphipathic oligocarbonate molecular transporters. These second generation delivery systems have improved physical properties, including smaller and more stable particle sizes, relative to their first generation counterparts described in Chapter 2. These transporters delivered siRNA to primary keratinocytes, melanoma cells, and ovarian cancer cells. Chapter 4 details the development of the first molecular method for the delivery of small molecule probes and large protein cargos into algal cells. It was shown that oligoarginine could facilitate the uptake of fluorescein, or the larger, FAM-streptavidin protein, into cells. A catalytically active protein was delivered into cells and was shown to maintain catalytic activity even after delivery. Chapter 5 describes the design of new strategies to control the timing and amount of cargo released inside cells. Efforts towards a novel linker carrying two copies of drug or probe are described, as well as the combination of microneedles and luciferin-transporter conjugates for transdermal delivery in vivo.

    In this work, a function-oriented array of simplified analogs of the daphnane diterpene orthoester class of natural products bearing palmitate, phenyl, or phenylacetyl orthoesters was synthesized starting from commerically available starting materials via a key late stage common diversification intermediate. These families of novel compounds were evaluated for both selective PKC activation and growth inhibition of K562 (myleogenous leukemia) cancer cells. While these analogs showed no growth inhibitory activity in K562 cells up to concentrations of 10 micromolar, they did display varying profiles of PKC activation. One analog in particular demonstrated the ability to activate and cause translocation of conventional PKC b1 and novel PKC d to the same extent as resiniferonol, a potent natural resiniferonoid. A second analog, however, was found to activate novel PKC d selectively over conventional PKC b1; surprisingly, resiniferonol did not share this selectivity profile. Because the simplified, functional analogs synthesized in this study were shown to activate PKC while having no growth inhibitory activity, these compounds should be further investigated for their potential as therapeutic leads for the treatment of diseases like Alzheimer's or Parkinson's, in which (selective) activation of PKC could serve a therapeutic purpose without being plagued by growth inhibitory pathways.

    Purified DNA serves as a template for a wide array of analysis techniques, ranging from sequencing to PCR and hybridization assays. DNA analysis can be used for clinical diagnosis, for forensic investigation, and for a range of research purposes. These analysis techniques improve each year, but they are all constrained by the availability of purified DNA. DNA is typically derived from raw biological samples that contain a host of other molecular species, including proteins, lipids and metal ions. These species can inhibit analysis of the DNA, so purification of DNA from complex sample matrices is a necessary precursor to analysis. Typically, DNA purification is performed using either liquid-liquid extraction or solid-phase extraction, both of which require manual labor, involve toxic chemicals, and are difficult to miniaturize. Isotachophoresis (ITP) is an alternative method for DNA purification that does not rely on specialized surface chemistry or toxic chemical species. Instead, ITP uses electric fields to selectively pre-concentrate DNA from a raw sample, and simultaneously separate it from inhibiting species. ITP purification of DNA has been demonstrated from human serum, plasma, and whole blood, and the same technique has been used to purify RNA from bacteria in human blood and urine. Until recently, the parameters governing extraction efficiency, throughput, and separation quality in ITP purification were not well established. This thesis is focused on rational analysis for designing and optimizing ITP systems for rapid, high quality DNA purification.

    "As simple and straightforward as two health professionals conferring over the telephone or as complex and sophisticated as robotic surgery between facilities at different ends of the globe, telehealth is an increasingly frequent component in healthcare. A primer on the human factors issues that can influence how older adults interact with telehealth systems, Designing Telehealth for an Aging Population: A Human Factors Perspective examines the new ways patients and healthcare providers communicate to achieve the same or better outcomes than with traditional face-to-face healthcare.The authors examine older adult capabilities and provide standards and guidelines for telehealth design, enlivened by clinical examples and tutorials on human factors methodologies. They take a systematic look at how the use of human factors principles can facilitate the successful development, deployment, and maintenance of telehealth technology to better serve the aging population. The authors have carefully stayed away from academic writing, distilling their experience in the form of basic observations and principles drawn from their work. They include suggested readings at the end of each chapter that supply the research underpinning their recommendations. The first reference to cover older adult users in an area that will only get bigger, this book sets itself apart by providing focused coverage of the human factors issues specific to aging populations and practical advice on how to accommodate them"-- Provided by publisher.

    Understanding human brain function is one of the most important endeavors in modern science. There is growing evidence that cognitive functions are executed by large-scale networks, comprising multiple interacting anatomically-connected brain areas. Although considerable progress has been made in understanding which specific brain areas are involved in particular cognitive functions, very little is known about the integrative functioning of large-scale brain networks. This is due in part to the lack of methods to pursue this line of research. This dissertation describes computational methods for detecting and characterizing large-scale human brain networks, combining data from task-free functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and structural diffusion tensor imaging (DTI), two complementary brain imaging modalities. Application of our methods to task-free fMRI and DTI data obtained from a wide range of subject populations provided new insights into how large-scale human brain networks develop, mature, and get disrupted in psychiatric and neurological disorders. More generally, this work demonstrates the power of our multimodal network-analytic approach to obtain a system-level understanding of brain function across the human lifespan.

    Due to the sequential nature of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) data acquisition, correction of image artifacts originating from involuntary patient motion is essential for reliable diagnostic quality. Especially during MRI scans of certain patient populations such as children, elderly or patients with certain medical conditions (e.g. stroke, Parkinson's), motion correction methods must be incorporated into the MR imaging protocol for adequate image quality. With increased demands for higher resolution or time-resolved examinations (e.g. functional MRI), examination times also increase and even willing patients might have trouble staying still during the course of the examination. The first part of this thesis provides a method for retrospective correction of head motion artifacts using a multi-shot spiral-in \& out readout and parallel-imaging based iterative image reconstruction. The spiral-in part provided a low resolution image that was used for measurement of head motion. Due to rotational motion, locally undersampled areas appear in MR acquisition space (i.e., k-space), which violate the Nyquist theorem and cause artifacts even after motion correction. These artifacts were addressed through the data redundancy provided by multiple receiver channels that is present in modern receiver coils and an iterative conjugate-gradient based reconstruction. This method was then applied to diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) with multi-shot readout. Since DTI uses directional gradients to encode diffusion, rotational motion causes the image contrast to change, and it becomes incorrect to combine data with varying diffusion encodings on them. To address this issue, a non-linear conjugate gradient based reconstruction is presented and it is shown that this method provided more accurate description of white matter pathways compared to traditional methods. In the second part of this thesis, a prospective motion correction system using an optical tracking device is presented. Such systems are preferable compared to retrospective navigator-based methods due to various reasons, such as ability to perform motion correction independent of the MR data acquisition and immunity to spin history effects. The system proposed used a single camera mounted on the head coil and a self-encoded checkerboard marker mounted on the patient's forehead. Results on structural and diffusion imaging revealed that prospective motion correction outperforms retrospective navigator-based schemes. In the last part of the thesis, entropy-based retrospective autofocusing was used in combination with motion data obtained from prospective tracking to remove residual motion artifacts in the images. This method was especially useful for removing errors caused by inaccurate cross-calibration between the scanner and camera frame-of-references. It was also shown that prospective tracking can be the enabling technology for autofocusing in 3D acquisitions.

    In the era of rapid high-throughput DNA sequencing and increasing bioinformatic capabilities to analyze large amounts of biological data, it is especially important to continue to develop high-throughput experimental proteomic methods. Probing physical interactions among proteins and nucleic acids is a powerful approach to gain insight into their functional relationships. Microfluidic tools are of great potential value to this field because they make it possible to run hundreds or thousands of independent experiments in parallel and at a high spatial density. Here I present and explain MITOMI (mechanically induced trapping of molecular interactions), an in vitro method that was initially created to measure the affinities of transcription factors binding to DNA. I contributed to the development of the system so it could be applied to mapping protein-protein interaction networks, and used it to study the interactions of E. coli RNA polymerase in order to better understand the regulation of bacterial transcription. I also extended the utility of MITOMI by adapting it to be able to measure interaction kinetics and to more efficiently measure affinities. With the ability to discover interactions at a large scale and to quantitatively characterize them on the same platform, MITOMI constitutes a valuable contribution to proteomic methodology.

    Human articular cartilage can degrade, losing functional quality and eventually exposing bone surfaces; when significantly advanced, this cartilage degradation can be diagnosed as osteoarthritis (OA). Currently, knee OA can be diagnosed only when the disease is advanced and the patient is suffering from pain. There is no cure for knee OA, nor are there prevent preventative therapies; current treatment strategies relieve the pain of OA or completely replace the knee joint. To evaluate potential therapies and treatments, we need a method that can identify and measure changes to cartilage prior to the onset of degradation. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a potentially powerful tool to non-invasively evaluate the progression of knee OA by mapping MR image parameters to molecular and material properties that are known to change with disease. The goal of this dissertation was to determine MR image parameters that can be used to evaluate the progression of OA. We examined the biphasic and viscoelastic models of cartilage to determine cartilage material properties from indentation creep tests. We compared initial elastic modulus and cartilage macromolecules to MRI parameters, specifically T2 and T1rho relaxation times and T1rho dispersion. We determined that a predictive model based on T1rho relaxation time maps, which accounts for T2 relaxation time and the effects of age, may estimate longitudinal trends in GAG content in the same person. In addition, a simple T1rho dispersion estimate has the potential for substantial clinical impact by measuring changes in cartilage initial elastic modulus and macromolecules non-invasively. This work is an important step toward developing clinical methods for evaluating cartilage functional condition, and in turn, to advance work towards preventing and treating knee OA.

    Biotherapeutics have regained their reputation as drug candidates in the drug market due to their remarkable specificity; however, the broader clinical use of biotherapeutics is often challenged by poor pharmacological properties. Therefore, there is enormous interest in developing peptidomimetics as alternative therapeutic options. Inspired by the first successful example of peptide-based antivirals, Fuzeon®, similar strategies to develop antivirals have been applied to many other viruses that share class I fusion protein-mediated viral fusion. Using human Respiratory Syncytial Virus (hRSV) as a model system, the second chapter of this dissertation demonstrates our successful effort to develop a protein-based assay using a 5-Helix Bundle (5HB) fluorescence polarization (FP) as a screening platform for hRSV fusion inhibitors. The remaining chapters in this thesis all utilize the 5HB-based FP assay to evaluate the potential of short peptides and their peptoid-based peptidomimetics as antivirals to control hRSV infections. The third chapter proposes that NMEGylation, an alternative to PEGylation that uses a covalent attachment of an oligo-N-methoxyethylglycine (NMEG) chain, may enhance the bioavailability of short therapeutic peptides. The incorporation of optimized numbers of NMEG monomers along with a glycine linker increases the solubility and serum stability greatly, suggesting that NMEGylation may open a new opportunity to use peptoids as modifiers of therapeutically attractive peptides and proteins. The fourth chapter demonstrates how our novel approach combining alanine, proline, and sarcosine scans can be useful to determine peptoid-replaceable peptide residues and further proves the usefulness of the combined scan strategy using the C20 peptide as a parent peptide. Furthermore, two different methods to promote the [Alpha]-helical conformation of C20 analogues by structurally constraining the parent C20 peptide using "hydrocarbon-stapling" or "clicking" are described. We report a constrained C20 analogue with improved binding affinity, and discuss our structural investigations of the constrained C20 analogues using CD spectroscopy. The studies in the fifth chapter show that phage display can be used for identifying novel hRSV entry inhibitors that are not derived from the original sequence of the hRSV fusion protein F like the peptides described in chapters 2, 3, and 4. We report two 12-mer peptides with a low micromolar binding affinity to the 5HB, and ongoing efforts are aimed towards better understanding the interaction of the 12-mer peptides with the 5HB by co-crystallizing the peptides and 5HB. Finally, the dissertation concludes with a sixth chapter that summarizes the current status of each research chapter. In addition, future prospects, new directions, and potential applications of the findings in this dissertation are presented in this chapter.

    This dissertation describes a general method for identifying and roughly quantifying the metabolites that are produced by symbiotic dinoflagellates and transferred to cnidarian hosts. I developed a system of rapid filtration and gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS) to identify these compounds in the anemone tissue and dinoflagellates separately. I used 13C-sodium bicarbonate to label compounds produced from newly-fixed carbon; the principal compound detected in the animal was glucose. I developed a way to visualize these and other large GC-MS datasets using open-source software. I also built tools for analyzing Ultra-High-Throughput-Sequencing (UHTS) data, and these were useful in the de novo assembly of the Aiptasia pallida transcriptome. One tool I developed compares each read to each other read using a MapReduce framework to merge near-duplicate reads and reduce redundancy in the dataset. In addition, our lab sequenced symbiotic animals and therefore often worked with pools of sequences from multiple organisms. I developed a tool for identifying which transcript sequence was produced by which organism in a symbiotic ecosystem: it was 99% accurate on high-quality validation data.

    Autoimmune diseases are painful and debilitating conditions which affect millions of people in the United States and all over the world. At present such conditions are often difficult to diagnose and many have no satisfactory treatment. Given the wealth and availability of genomic data such as genetic variation and gene expression, computational integrative methods provide a powerful opportunity to improve human health by refining the current knowledge about diagnostics, therapeutics and disease mechanism. For instance numerous genome-wide association studies (GWAS) performed across autoimmune diseases, provide a great opportunity to study disease relationships based on genetic variation. Comparing such profiles allows us to quantify allele-specific pair-wise relationships between these diseases to find two broad clusters of autoimmune disease. We furthermore find that certain polymorphisms, toggle SNPs, predispose individuals to one class of autoimmune disease but are protective against the other class. While studying allelic differences between diseases may point to key novel disease-specific genes and pathways, studying similarities across diseases might lead to discovery of common therapeutic options as well as common disease mechanisms. In particular we integrate genetic variation data across several studies to discover the role of a complement factor in Rheumatoid Arthritis and Multiple Sclerosis. Gene expression microarrays are also often used to study human diseases as well as the perturbation of biological systems by drug compounds providing an opportunity to discover novel relationships between diseases and drugs. We present a systematic computational method to predict novel therapeutic indications based on gene expression. We tested our top prediction for Crohn's disease (CD) using the rat model of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), and successfully demonstrated the predicted efficacy of an anti-seizure drug in treating disease. In this work, we have showed that integrative computational tools can be used to improve diagnostics, learn more about disease mechanism and discover novel therapeutics for autoimmune disease.

    This book reviews the current basic and clinical research into the mechanisms of cartilage injury and its management. It illustrates the considerable progress made in the search for solutions to cartilage related problems. Developing Insights in Cartilage Repair describes fundamental research and the use of biomaterials, bioreactors, and imaging as part of existing cartilage repair strategies, while revealing the on-going trends for emerging techniques. The aim of the Editors and their team of authorities in cartilage medicine has been to provide a link between laboratory work and the daily treatment of patients in a clinical setting. This book reveals the highly multidisciplinary nature of the topic and it will thus not only be of considerable interest to a large proportion of the orthopaedic community, but also any discipline in which cartilaginous tissue is involved, including otorhinolaryngology and plastic surgery.

    Many cellular processes including cell-cell communications and regulated membrane transport are mediated by membrane proteins and depend upon the ability of lipid membranes to be a differentially permeable barrier. However, the roles and function of membrane proteins are often difficult to study due to the complexity of the native membranes and lack of reliable and flexible artificial model lipid membranes. Supported lipid bilayers (SLB) have been used as a model system to study biological membrane behavior and the structure and function of membrane proteins and receptors in a simpler context apart from the complex cellular environment. Although SLBs have the advantages of simple formation, easy handling and are well-suited for investigation by a suite of surface sensitive methods due to their planar geometry, the close proximity of the lower leaflet to the solid support often leads to unfavorable interactions with integral membrane proteins. This causes distortion of the protein conformation and possible loss of its reactivity and function. Moreover, this interaction with the substrate often traps proteins and reduces their mobility in the membranes. Recognizing this limitation, we have developed a new model membrane architecture in which the DNA-tethered lipid bilayer is either to fixed DNA on a surface or to laterally mobile DNA displayed on a supported bilayer. This separates the lipid membranes from surface interactions and provides a more favorable environment for integral membrane protein with large globular domains. With mobile DNA hybrid tethers, stable tethered bilayers were made with specific lipid composition, while those with fixed tethers are stable regardless of membrane composition. The mobile tethers between a tethered and a supported lipid bilayer offer a particularly interesting architecture for studying the dynamics of membrane-membrane interactions. By careful choice of composition, improved stability was obtained and we can investigate the lateral segregation of DNA hybrids when different lengths are present. Based on a theoretical model, the effects of population, length and affinity of DNA complexes are simulated and described. This model system captures some of the essential physics of synapse formation and is a step toward understanding lipid membrane behavior in a cell-to-cell junction. To demonstrate the excellent environment provided by DNA-tethered membranes for studying transmembrane proteins free from any surface interactions, the behavior of a transmembrane protein, the photosynthetic reaction center, reconstituted in the DNA-tethered membranes is investigated. Inspired by DNA-mediated membrane fusion studies of our group, we applied the DNA-machinery to achieve fusion of small (~ 100 nm) proteoliposomes for delivery of membrane proteins to either giant vesicles or DNA-tethered planar lipid membrane patches. The diffusion behavior of delivered proteins is measured and compared with those in supported bilayers. Also, the protein activity and orientation before and after fusion is analyzed. This will offer a feasible method to incorporate intact membrane proteins to already formed model membranes. In addition, the behavior of proteins during the fusion event will provide insight into the mechanism of DNA-mediated lipid membrane fusion. The geometry of our model membrane system directly mimics that of a neuronal synapse. We expect that this architecture will be readily transferable to other model membrane fusion systems, including systems using reconstituted SNARE proteins. Consequently, it will be of considerable interest to a wide range of researchers.

    Developing novel therapies for gram-negative bacterial infections and glioblastoma multiforme I. cloning and characterization of the guadinomine biosynthetic gene cluster II. developing a novel chemo-sensitizing agent to treat glioblastoma. This thesis explores the development of novel therapies for the treatment of two complicated problems: Gram-negative bacterial infections and glioblastoma multiforme, the most aggressive form of brain cancer. Part I of the thesis summarizes the current body of knowledge regarding guadinomines, their biosynthesis and implications for developing novel anti-infective agents. Part II of the thesis summarizes the development of the small molecule, ERW1227B, and its ability to sensitize glioblastoma cells to standard therapies. Part I. Guadinomines are a recently discovered family of anti-infective compounds produced by Streptomyces sp. K01-0509. They are the first microbial metabolites shown to inhibit the Type III Secretion System (TTSS) of Gram-negative bacteria. The TTSS is required for the virulence of many pathogenic Gram-negative bacteria including Escherichia coli, Salmonella spp., Yersinia spp., Chlamydia spp., Vibrio spp., and Pseudomonas spp. Inhibition of the TTSS can mitigate virulence which is important considering that Gram-negative bacteria infect millions each year, leading to considerable morbidity and mortality. The guadinomine (gdn) biosynthetic gene cluster has been sequenced, and encodes a chimeric multimodular polyketide synthase -- nonribosomal peptide synthetase spanning 26 open reading frames and 51.2 kb. It also encodes enzymes responsible for the biosynthesis of the unusual aminomalonyl-ACP extender unit and the signature carbamoylated cyclic guanidine. Its identity was established by genetic inactivation of the cluster, as well as heterologous expression and analysis of enzymes in the biosynthetic pathway. Identifying the guadinomine gene cluster provides critical insight into the biosynthesis of these biologically important compounds. Part II. Glioblastomas display variable phenotypes that include increased drug-resistance associated with enhanced migratory and anti-apoptotic characteristics. These shared characteristics contribute to failure of clinical treatment regimens. Identification of novel compounds that both promote cell death and impair cellular motility is a logical strategy to develop more effective clinical protocols. Previously, we described the ability of the small molecule, KCC009, a tissue transglutaminase inhibitor, to sensitize glioblastoma cells to chemotherapy. In the current study, we synthesized a series of related compounds that show variable ability to promote cell death and impair motility in glioblastomas, irrespective of their ability to inhibit TG2. Each compound has a 3-bromo-4,5-dihydroisoxazole component that presumably reacts with a nucleophilic cysteine thiol residue in one (or more) target protein(s) that have affinity for the small molecule. Our studies focused on the effects of the compound, ERW1227B. Treatment of glioblastoma cells with ERW1227B was associated with both down-regulation of the PI-3 kinase/Akt pathway, which enhanced cell death; as well as disruption of focal adhesions and intracellular actin fibers, which impaired cellular mobility. Bioassays as well as time-lapse photography of glioblastoma cells treated with ERW1227B showed cell death and rapid loss of cellular motility. Mice studies with in vivo glioblastoma models demonstrated the ability of ERW1227B to sensitize tumor cells to cell death after treatment with either chemotherapy or radiation. The above findings identify ERW1227B as a potential novel therapeutic agent in the treatment of glioblastomas.

    Understanding the general laws of an effective system for the transport of substances in cells is an important goal of systems and synthetic biology and will help us to answer why the transport subsystem of a cell is arranged as it is. In addition, the construction of models for optimizing transport systems is of considerable importance in the early stages in the development of a functioning protocell. The aim of this book is to describe the latest techniques for the calculation of the optimal parameters of the transport subsystem of a cell at its maximum efficiency.

    Coral reefs are animal-built structures that provide habitats for a disproportionately large number of marine species relative to the small percentage of the ocean that they cover. Corals, and some other cnidarians such as anemones, host dinoflagellates within the cells of their gastrodermal tissue. The dinoflagellates fix carbon photosynthetically and transfer it to the host; the dinoflagellates can provide up to 90% of the hosts' metabolic requirements. The symbiosis between the cnidarian host and its dinoflagellate symbiont is therefore the trophic foundation on which coral reef are built. Despite its importance, the molecular mechanisms controlling symbiosis establishment, maintenance, and breakdown remain poorly understood. Our lab is working to further develop the small sea anemone, Aiptasia, as a model system for studying cnidarian-dinoflagellate symbiosis. To this end, I sequenced the transcriptome of aposymbiotic Aiptasia, of symbiotic Aiptasia, and of the dinoflagellate symbionts. I then used these resources to perform gene-expression analysis comparing symbiotic and aposymbiotic anemones, which provided numerous testable biological hypotheses about both the structural basis of the symbiosis and the downstream metabolic effects of metabolite transfer to the host. These resources should serve as the foundation for future experiments in our laboratory and more widely in the field of coral biology.

    Embryonic development is a remarkable program of cell proliferation, migration, and differentiation that transforms a single fertilized egg into a complex multicellular organism. This process depends on spatial and temporal control of gene function, and deciphering the molecular mechanisms that underlie pattern formation requires novel methods for perturbing gene expression with similar precision. Synthetic reagents can help meet this demand, and in this thesis I describe the development and application of caged morpholino (cMO) oligonucleotides for inactivating genes in zebrafish and other optically transparent organisms with spatiotemporal control simply by irradiating embryonic tissues with a focused light beam. In chapter 1 I provide an overview of the zebrafish model system of vertebrate development and survey the capabilities and limitations of various oligonucleotide-based technologies for perturbing RNA function and tracking RNA expression in zebrafish. I examine various light-gated oligonucleotide technologies that exploit the optical transparency of zebrafish embryos, including cMOs, for achieving spatiotemporal control of RNA function. In chapter 2 we describe the initial synthesis of a cMO targeting expression of the no tail a (ntla) transcription factor. By permitting spatiotemporal gene regulation in zebrafish embryos, the ntla cMO was used to make initial observations into the time-dependent role of this gene in notochord formation. In chapter 3 we report optimized methods for the design and synthesis of hairpin cMOs, incorporating a dimethoxynitrobenzyl (DMNB)-based bifunctional linker that permits cMO assembly in only three steps from commercially available reagents. Using this simplified procedure, we have systematically prepared cMOs with differing structural configurations and investigated how the in vitro thermodynamic properties of these reagents correlate with their in vivo activities. Through these studies, I have established general principles for cMO design and successfully applied them to several developmental genes. Our optimized synthetic and design methodologies have also enabled us to prepare a next-generation cMO that contains a bromohydroxyquinoline (BHQ)-based linker for two-photon uncaging. Collectively, these advances established the generality of cMO technologies to facilitate the application of these chemical probes in vivo for functional genomic studies. Finally, in chapter 4 we illustrate the utility of the cMO technology in isolating spatiotemporally-distinct functions of transcription factors -- genes that play diverse roles during embryonic development, with each controlling multiple cellular states in a spatially and temporally defined manner. Resolving the dynamic transcriptional profiles that underlie these patterning processes is essential for understanding embryogenesis at the molecular level; however, probing in vivo gene function with comparable spatiotemporal precision has been a technological challenge. To address this need, I have integrated cMOs with similarly caged fluorophores, fluorescence-activated cell sorting (FACS), and microarray technologies. Using this approach, I have dynamically profiled the No tail-a (Ntla)-dependent transcriptome at different stages of zebrafish mesoderm development, discovering discrete sets of genes that are associated with either notochord cell fate commitment or subsequent changes in cell function. Our studies elucidated the roles of several Ntla-regulated genes in notochord development and demonstrated the activation of multiple transcriptomes within a cell lineage by a single transcription factor.

    The ability to generate robust quantitative high-throughput protein abundance estimates directly from clinical samples would be useful for translational biomedical research. Knowing the protein content and abundance of a clinical sample would enable, for example, effective biomarker discovery, risk stratification of patient outcomes, and the ability to better understand disease mechanisms. Mass spectrometry has emerged as a powerful tool in the high-throughput measurement of proteins from human tissues and fluids. We are now beginning to have access to proteomics data of the coverage (hundreds to thousands of proteins), scale (tens to hundreds of samples), and throughput (a few days to weeks per experiment) to bring mass spectrometry proteomics to the study of clinical questions. In this work, we discuss methods for quantitation of peptide and protein abundance from mass spectrometry proteomics data. We apply our approaches to identify key proteins that are differentially expressed in the urine of kidney transplant patients with acute rejection. We also investigate the response of the human plasma proteome to severe burn injury. We characterize the protein composition of T-cells, monocytes, and neutrophils of trauma patients, healthy controls, and stimulated cells, and compare information content of proteomics data from these cell populations with gene expression data from similar samples. Finally, we discuss a novel metric for scoring normalization algorithms from mixture titration quality control experiments, and we apply this metric to proteomics and transcriptomics data. Through the methods for quantitation of peptides and proteins, application of proteomics to different clinical questions, and integration of proteomics with other high-throughput data, we demonstrate the utility of mass spectrometry based proteomics to the study of human biofluids in human disease research.

    Trauma patients require rapid diagnosis and treatment of hemorrhage. In the hospital, experienced sonographers can reliably diagnose vascular injury using duplex ultrasound. In trauma settings, such as the battlefield, a portable ultrasound device with an automated algorithm to detect bleeding would be useful for medics. Thus, an increasing interest in computer-aided bleed detection led to efforts in quantifying sonographic signatures of abnormalities at the site of vascular injury. However, since trauma patients often present with large areas of injury, there is a need to develop and evaluate bleed detection strategies for ultrasound that more efficiently assess a large vascular tree. The goal of this Ph.D. research dissertation is to address this need. The studies primarily focused on the upper extremity vasculature, specifically the brachial bifurcation, because the leading cause of preventable deaths due to vascular trauma has been exsanguinations from extremity injuries. The overall approach was to characterize normal blood flow with a well-established power law model and identify flows that deviate from the model. The power law states that blood flow is proportional to the vessel diameter raised to a power index k, where k is defined by the bifurcation geometry. A bleed detection metric, called the "flow split deviation" (FSD), was defined to quantify the flow deviations from the power law. Validation of this approach was undertaken in four steps. The first involved demonstrating that the power law model appropriately describes the normal brachial bifurcation and flows in man. The utility of the bleed metric was then evaluated with 3D computational models of bleeds. Finally, the proposed detection algorithm was applied on the early proof of concept humans in arteriovenous fistulas (AVF) of dialysis patients and in in vivo rabbit bleed models. A study with normal human subjects was used to determine that the best-fit k for the brachial bifurcation was 2.75, which is in agreement with other vasculatures previously studied. A k=2.75 power law was then shown to adequately predict forearm blood flows for both resting and exercise physiological states. The correlation coefficient R between predicted and measured normal flows was 0.98. Computational models suggested that FSD was a good indicator of the severity of bleed downstream from the bifurcation. In the patient case study, the bleed metric easily distinguished between normal arms and those with newly placed wrist AVFs, which caused on average an order of magnitude increase in flow deviations. Introduction of different femoral bleed rates in rabbits demonstrated good sensitivity and specificity of the bleed metric when applied to moderate lower extremity bleeds. Bifurcation FSDs can serve as a quantitative signature of bleeding and, moreover, as a strategic way to survey large vascular trees by following abnormal branch points to the likely source of hemorrhage. This approach can complement other quantitative sonographic methods to create a comprehensive, automated, ultrasound-based algorithm for vascular trauma detection.

    Astrocytes constitute more than half of the human brain, yet their functions have yet to be fully elucidated largely due to a lack of a good and pure in vitro culture system. The inability to purify and culture brain astrocytes has long hindered studies of their function. Although astrocyte progenitor cells can be cultured from neonatal brain, culture of more differentiated mature astrocytes from postnatal brain has not previously been possible. Here I report a new method for the prospective purification of astrocytes by immunopanning (IP-astrocytes) and have used this method to investigate several fundamental properties, functions of astrocytes and neuron-glial interactions. I show that these highly purified astrocytes, like neurons, undergo apoptosis in culture, but that vascular cells as well as exogenous HBEGF and Wnt7a strongly promote their survival in serum-free culture. Similarly, I found that developing astrocytes in vivo undergo apoptosis and that the vast majority of surviving astrocytes in vivo contact blood vessels and hypothesise that developing astrocytes may normally be matched to blood vessels by competing for a limited supply of vascular trophic factors. In contrast to the more traditional neonatal astrocyte cultures prepared via a method developed by McCarthy and de Vellis (1980) (MD-astrocytes), the gene profiles and functions of the purified postnatal astrocytes in serum-free culture much more closely resembled that of astrocytes in vivo. These astrocytes also strongly promoted synapse formation and function. I have also identified genes that are induced by serum and show that serum exposure to astrocytes causes massive and irreversible changes of gene expression as well as astrocyte function. In addition, I have highlighted several features of MD-astrocytes that are different from IP-astrocytes. Together, the data suggests that I have developed a culture system that is more representative of the in vivo state. This culture system will be of interest to a broad range of neuroscientists as it provides a simplified and tractable system to study the functions and properties of astrocytes both in the normal and diseased states.

    Studying the effects of gene expression in biological systems has traditionally been undertaken by measuring phenotypic response at a limited number of expression levels. Typically the effects of gene expression are assayed at a high level of overexpression and compared to physiological levels of expression; however, many examples exist in which the level of gene expression greatly affects the resulting cellular phenotypes. Of particular interest for our purposes is the interplay between oncogenes in driving tumorigenesis and cancer progression. For example, oncogene H-Ras is capable of both enhancing cellular proliferation at intermediate levels expression levels (doses) and causing cell cycle arrest and senescence at high expression levels. In order to more thoroughly investigate such behavior we have created a set of tools for measuring dose-dependent effects of gene expression. These tools consist of promoter library to drive wide range gene expression, single-cell proliferation measurements, and data analysis methods to calculate correlation curves between gene expression level and phenotype response. The system is designed for cell-by-cell measuring of both expression level and phenotype response by flow cytometry. This approach allows for full dose experiments to be performed in a single heterogeneous culture with individual cells accessing different expression levels for a given phenotype. Because we are interested in studying the cell biology and genetics of tumor cells, measuring the phenotype of proliferation rate was of particular interest. To aid in further investigation of proliferation rate response to gene overexpression a genetic proliferation reporter was developed. This reporter utilizes the cell cycle-dependent activity of the E2F class of transcription factors, which are active during the G1/S transition. The highly stable fluorescent proteins EGFP and mCherry are expressed from both an E2F-responsive and constitutive promoter, respectively. The ratio of fluorescence levels correlates to proliferation rate in a variety of cell lines, matching predictions made initially by computational model. Finally, given a culture containing expression of a gene or combination of genes by the promoter library and phenotype measurement, the data collected from those cells must be analyzed to determine a correlation curve representing the dose response of the phenotype to level of expression of the genes of interest. In order to calculate this curve from the flow cytometry data several empirical analysis methods were evaluated. We determined the locally weighted scatter plot smoothing (LOWESS) curve fitting method to be best for our purposes of fitting the dose-response curves. As the LOWESS fits of flow cytometry data represented a technical hurdle to performing the dose-response experiments a custom software package was created to allow for easy implementation of the constitutive promoter library for studying dose-dependent behavior. The result is a set of biological and computational tools that allow for high throughput evaluation of gene dose effects. Further effort has been undertaken to move the system to evaluate multiple genes simultaneously, with the ultimate goal of being able to measure genetic cooperation.

    Cancer arises from the alteration of genes and the deregulation of the inherent control mechanisms existing with a cell. Cancer progression is the result of several of these genes or pathways being altered. Unfortunately, its analysis is not as straightforward as identifying a handful of discrete, independent mutational events occurring within a cell. Rather, these genes, pathways, and other regulatory elements are interconnected. Altering the expression level (dose) of one gene can have direct and indirect effects on many additional genes/pathways. Furthermore, combinations of genes can interact to have collaborative or antagonistic effects that are greater than or less than the sum of their individual contributions. It is not enough to study the effects of single genes/pathways at a few discrete expression levels. To this end, we have developed genetic tools that allow for controlling gene expression over a full range. Controlling gene expression at the level of transcription allowed for a 40-fold range of expression to be investigated. However, the range in expression of the transcriptionally controlled system varied across cell lines. Expanding beyond this system, we have turned to controlling gene expression at the level of translation. Using translational control elements, we were able to varying gene expression over a 200 -- 300-fold range. Furthermore, the translational control system was shown to be consistent across six different cell lines and with every transgene that has been tested to date. To address the fact that cancer progression is a multi-faceted event, we developed a system that would allow observation of the effects resulting from the interactions of multiple genes. By using retroviral vectors equipped with fluorescent protein fusions, we successfully derived a system that has the capacity to interrogate up to three genes of interest within a single culture of cells. This single culture makes it logistically feasible to study such large combinations of gene dosage levels. This single culture is heterogeneous in expression for each of the transgenes introduced; and by utilizing flow cytometry, the precise dosage level of each transgene can be correlated to measureable phenotypes at the single-cell level. To demonstrate how the tools we have developed can be utilized to quantitatively assess gene-dosage profiles, we ectopically controlled the expression of various mutant forms of the oncogenic version of H-Ras (H-RasG12V) in both murine fibroblast and pre-B cells. We chose to study proliferation as a measurable phenotypic read-out. In NIH/3T3 fibroblasts we observed a maximum in proliferation at low levels of expression of H-RasG12V. A mutant version, H-RasG12V T35S, which is only able to signal down the MAPK pathway, exhibited maximal proliferation at intermediate expression levels. Other H-Ras mutants did not exhibit any proliferation optima when expressed by themselves. In contrast, when the mutants were investigated in pairwise fashion, some cooperation could be observed between particular mutant pairs. Finally, the effect of these H-Ras mutants on proliferation was investigated in a murine pre-B cell line. By adding a reference population of cells to a culture of cells expressing H-Ras mutant oncogenes over a range of expression levels, we were able to track the population dynamics between these two subsets of cells. A simple mathematical approach will be detailed to demonstrate how we can calculate the net proliferation rate as a function of H-Ras expression level by tracking the distribution of these two cell populations over time.

    The development of innovative drugs is becoming more difficult while relying on empirical approaches. This inspired all major pharmaceutical companies to pursue alternative model-based paradigms. The key question is: How to find innovative compounds and, subsequently, appropriate dosage regimens?

    A central goal in neuroscience is to explain animal behavior in terms of causal cellular processes. It has been a longstanding challenge, however, to simultaneously track behavior and the cellular dynamics driving it. In this thesis, I discuss how a series of one- and two-photon fluorescence microscopes, based on gradient refractive index (GRIN) lenses, were developed to meet this challenge. The predominant difficulty in the design of these microscopes was how to take a traditional bench top microscope and shrink it to a size small enough for a mouse to easily carry on its head, a limit of 3 grams. We chose mice as our design target due to the wide availability of genetically modified mouse models for the study of cognitive functions, animal behaviors, and disorders of the nervous system. The earlier devices, relying on fiber optics to bring light to and from the animal, met with limited success but still provided useful insight in the development of the surgical techniques and analytical tools necessary for later successful experiments. In contrast, our latest system fully integrates the entire light pathway onto the head of mouse, eliminating many of the remaining roadblocks to truly freely-moving imaging. This device has enabled novel observations of both microcirculatory and neuronal calcium dynamics in the cerebellum of freely-moving mice at frame rates up to 100 Hz. As the genetic toolbox for mice continues to mature, these miniaturized microscopes will facilitate a wide set of future studies of how cellular function in the brain varies across different behavioral and physiological states.

    Development of novel vaccines gives an overview of the tasks in basic research leading to the final product â" the vaccine and its applications, belonging to the most complex biologics in the pharmaceutical field. Distinct from most textbooks in the vaccine arena, the current issue focuses on the translational aspect, namely, how research results can be transformed into life-saving medical interventions. Each chapter of the book deals with one important paradigm for the development of novel vaccines, along the value chain towards the final vaccine, and furthermore, with the inevitable tools required for this process. Contributions are prepared by teams of scientists, all of whom are experts in the field, most of them anchored in biomedical organizations devoted to translational culture, thereby lighting the certain topics from different views. This volume is a must read for researchers engaged in vaccine development and who really want to see their research results to become a product.

    The development of live cell RNA imaging techniques will lead to the unraveling of many important biological processes. To achieve this goal, there have been three different strategies developed. They are the development of small molecule probes, nucleic acid probes, and green fluorescent protein (GFP) probes. In the following thesis, the pros and cons of each approach are discussed, followed by a proposal to resolve the limitations. In the small molecule case, a probe was developed that utilized a quenched sulforhodamine dye. It was designed so that its structure can be rationally modified from the initial lead compound. An aptamer sequence that activates the sulforhodamine probe with micro molar affinity was found by in vitro Systematic Evolution of Ligands by Exponential Enrichment (SELEX), followed by fluorescence screening in E.coli. The rational modification of the structure of the initial sulforhodamine probe resulted in an overall 33-fold increase in binding affinity compared to the initial lead compound. Instead of the chemical modification of the lead compound, the small molecule's cell permeability and binding affinity to the target could be improved by linking to cell penetrating peptides (CPP). A CPP is a short peptide sequence composed of poly arginine amino acids which shows excellent cell uptake and affinity to RNA. However, the use of the CPP-linked dye in live cell imaging has been limited by strong signals in the endosome region. An attempt was made to overcome this difficulty by linking a quencher molecule to the dye-CPP via a disulfide bond, which only breaks when it enters the cytosol. For the nucleic acid probe, the major problem was its low cell permeability and low signal-to-background ratio due to the low copy number of mRNA targets within the cell. We made mutant Hammerhead ribozymes and embedded them in a non-coding region of the GFP expression vector that can be transfected to mammalian cells. This modified Hammerhead ribozyme acts as a logic gate, and the signal is amplified by the expression of GFP in the presence of the target mRNA. In vitro and in vivo results are discussed. Finally, a fragmented GFP system, the fluorescence of which could be recovered by binding to a specific RNA tag, was developed. The major problem for the GFP-mediated RNA imaging system was the low signal-to-background ratio from the GFP probe that is not bound to the RNA tag. To find the non-fluorescent GFP, the GFP was truncated from the C-terminus such that it loses its fluorescence with minimum loss of amino acids. An RNA sequence that has high affinity to this GFP was found by in vitro SELEX. The subsequent E.coli screening found an RNA sequence that reactivates the fluorescence of the GFP probe.

    Fluorescence microscopy is one of the most widely used tools in cell biology due its intrinsically high detection sensitivity coupled with the ability to genetically label proteins and other cellular structures with fluorescent tags. However, the resolution of fluorescence microscopy has historically been limited to about 200 nm laterally and 800 nm axially because of the diffraction limit of visible light. In the past five years, imaging below the diffraction limit ("super-resolution imaging") by localizing single fluorophores, one at a time (1-3), has opened a wide a variety of new biological systems for study. This Dissertation is a collection of both techniques for two and three dimensional super-resolution imaging as well as applications in bacterial and yeast imaging. References 1.

    Templated fluorescence activation is an elegant nucleic acid detection technique, which relies on a target-activated chemical reaction between two oligonucleotide probes, eliciting a fluorescence readout. This method reports on genetic markers in solution phase and in cells. The research described in this thesis was aimed to expand the reaction scope of templated fluorescence activation and to develop probes, which overcome shortcomings of previous designs. Examples of DNA template-mediated fluorogenic reactions developed during this project include an organomercury-induced cyclization of Rhodamine thiosemicarbazide and the deprotection of a 7-azidomethoxycoumarin profluorophore by a Staudinger reaction. The most promising probe design (Q-STAR probes) is based on the reductive cleavage of an [alpha]-azidoether quencher release linker conjugated to a fluorophored-labeled DNA. A triphenylphosphine DNA-probe rapidly activates Q-STAR probes in the presence of the matched DNA target strand, reporting its presence by a strong fluorescence turn-on signal. Q-STAR probes are inert to aqueous conditions and cellular components, properties that were suboptimal for previous probe designs. Q-STAR probes report the target with single nucleotide specificity and enable an amplified detection signal by harnessing the target as a catalyst for the templated reaction. Q-STAR probes efficiently detect the presence of rRNAs in bacteria and mammalian cells. The probes are responsive to single nucleotide differences, which allows discriminating bacteria species by genetic variations using fluorescence microscopy or flow cytometry. Similarly, rRNAs in mammalian cells generate a strong fluorescence turn-on signal for Q-STAR probes. Templated fluorescence activation schemes bear considerable promise for applications in clinical diagnostics and molecular biology. The probe designs described in this thesis, in particular Q-STAR probes, constitute a major advancement in the field and will help achieve these goals.

    "For decades, lymphatic vessels were considered to be of "lesser significance" than blood vessels, and the fundamental importance of lymphatic vessels for physiological tissue homeostasis and their involvement in many pathological processes have only recently been fully appreciated. It is clear by now that all higher vertebrates possess a lymphatic vessel system, and that malfunctioning of the lymphatic vasculature has severe pathophysiological consequences. Still, many central aspects of the developmental origin, growth control and regulation of lymphatic vessels are not sufficiently understood. This volume of 'Advances in anatomy, embryology, and cell biology' focuses on the lymphatic vascular system from a developmental point of view, presenting exciting recent advances in elucidating the development and molecular control of lymphatic vessels. A collection of focused reviews, written by respected experts, describes ostensively how advanced genetic models and state-of-the-art imaging are being used to decipher the action of transcriptional programs, growth factors and matrix components in the regulation of lymphatic endothelial cell behavior. A synopsis is provided for each chapter, concisely highlighting the main points"--Publisher's description.

    In this work, I present two studies of the evolution and function of developmental enhancers. In the first study, I describe the discovery of the first examples of cis-regulatory elements that are conserved across the two great clades of the bilaterian tree (deuterostomes and protostomes). These bilaterian conserved regulatory elements (Bicores) are developmental enhancers that respond to key signaling pathways and have been conserved for approximately 650 million years. In vertebrates, Bicores have neofunctionalized to drive expression in the central nervous system. In the second study, I present a genome-wide set of putative enhancers that function in the development of the mammalian neocortex. These elements, identified through ChIP-seq, are validated through both computational and experimental approaches. I show that many elements are anciently conserved beyond mammals, and we show that older elements are more likely to be pleiotropic. Pleiotropic elements most likely function in other aspects of central nervous system development, and elements that are conserved to zebrafish function in the developing zebrafish forebrain. I also provide evidence that specific repeat families have played a major role in the generation of enhancers that function in neocortex development. Finally, in the conclusion, I discuss how enhancer neofunctionalization and pleiotropy fit into a model of enhancer evolution and the evo-devo framework.

    "Reduced production of DHEA associated with the diseases that accompany aging has led to its use as a nutritional supplement for antiaging, metabolic support, and other purposes. While animal studies have clearly shown substantial benefits of DHEA in combating various disease states, the effect of low levels of DHEA in humans is less established, and the mechanisms of action and potential involvement in illnesses remain unclear. DHEA in Human Health and Aging reviews the past ten years of research into this hormone and explores its potential for future study."--Publisher's description.

    Diabetes, in all of its forms, now constitutes a growing health concern, affecting all segments of the world's population. There is great interest in the factors which influence its etiology and progression. Among these, a number of viruses feature prominently. Hindered by technological limitations, research into this relationship has hitherto been scarce. Recent advances, however, have opened up the field and there is a burgeoning body of literature on the subject. Unfortunately, this literature has been diffuse and often difficult to access.For the first time, this book compiles the views of many of the world's experts in the field. It addresses questions, ranging from how viruses may destroy or modify the function of pancreatic islets; to which viruses are the most likely culprits; to whether vaccines or etiologic therapies might be used to prevent virus-induced diabetes. Diabetes and Viruses is the first comprehensive volume on an important and expanding field of research that is of interest to clinicians, healthcare managers, epidemiologists, veterinarians, and basic scientists.

    This volume provides a practical yet comprehensive guide to manage the shift in the diagnosis of lung cancer from large resections to small samples, including cytology specimens and core biopsies. Specifically, it outlines various available minimally-invasive modalities and presents algorithms to optimize and maximize sample collection and processing beginning at the time of tissue acquisition during the procedure. Secondly, the book provides an overview of the various existing and emerging lung cancer therapies and why a specific diagnosis is crucial. Key elements for the classification of small biopsies and cytology proposed by the ATS, IASLC, and ERS are highlighted. A section dedicated to immunohistochemistry offers a logical, step-by-step guide to sub-classify lung cancers and to differentiate them from metastases. The text also provides a review of the various molecular tests (and alternatives in cases of scant tissue) required for lung adenocarcinomas. Finally, potential pitfalls to avoid during acquisition, processing, and classification are discussed. With contributions from a team of multidisciplinary authors who are regularly involved in the care of lung cancer patients , Diagnosing Non-small Cell Carcinoma in Small Biopsy and Cytology is an invaluable reference guide for pathologists, pathologists-in-training, and allied professionals, including oncologists, pulmonologists, surgeons, and radiologists.

    This book presents the views of leading European experts on the diagnosis and management of testicular cancer, with coverage of current hot topics in the field. It opens by providing an overview of the recommendations in the most recent consensus paper from the European Germ Cell Cancer Consensus Group, which is based on interdisciplinary cooperation among urologists, medical oncologists, radio-oncologists, pathologists, and basic scientists. The remainder of the book focuses on areas of controversy in the diagnosis, treatment, and follow-up of testicular cancer. In each case the evidence base is discussed and results from the most recent studies are reviewed, drawing attention to new findings that might alter treatment recommendations. The treatment-related chapters cover a broad range of issues, including the best approach in patients with poor-prognosis and recurrent disease and those with long-term toxicities. Relevant aspects of survivorship care are also addressed. The book will help clinicians and practitioners to achieve the goals of minimizing therapy and its side-effects without reducing efficacy in low stage disease, improving the cure rate in advanced disease, and enhancing follow-up and long-term survivorship.

    Gastroesophageal reflux is one of the most common maladies of mankind. Approximately 40% of the adult population of the USA suffers from significant heartburn and the numerous antacids advertised incessantly on national television represents a $8 billion per year drug market. The ability to control acid secretion with the increasingly effective acid-suppressive agents such as the H2 blockers (pepcid, zantac) and proton pump inhibitors (nexium, prevacid) has given physicians an excellent method of treating the symptoms of acid reflux. This atlas is a source of easily digestible practical information for pathologists faced with biopsies from this region. It is also aimed at gastroenterologists as they biopsy these patients.

    The available textbooks on endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) typically focus on technique and interpretation of commonly observed images and scenarios and are aimed primarily at trainees. However, independent practitioners of EUS are often challenged by unusual cases which they are expected to handle competently despite the absence of authoritative guidance. The Diagnostic Endosonography aims to fill this gap by presenting carefully selected cases that will expand the practitioner's knowledge base and cover important clinical challenges. The case material is organized principally according to anatomic site. Approximately 170 case reports are included, each of which is accompanied by an average of three to five high-quality EUS images; in addition, CT and PET scans are shown when appropriate. For each case, the case description is followed by helpful 'teaching points' as well as up-to-date literature references and suggestions for future research.

    This book introduces the diagnosis of Emerging Infectious Diseases (EIDs), including newly emerging infectious diseases and also infectious diseases that show resistance to present treatments. Radiographic examinations are of great value in EIDs diagnosis, differential diagnosis, treatment efficacy assessment and prognosis evaluation. This book covers severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS), human avian influenza (H5N1, H7N9), influenza A (H1N1), hand-foot-mouth disease, acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS), viral hepatitis, pulmonary tuberculosis. All seven of these EIDs are associated with high incidence and mortality. This book details the imaging techniques, radiological appearance and characteristics of EIDs, and diagnosis and differential diagnosis of EID-related complications. Considering the unique and in some cases only partially understood nature of EIDs, appropriate space is provided in this book for the detailed explanation of the etiology, epidemiology, pathophysiology, clinical symptoms and signs, laboratory tests, clinical diagnosis and differential diagnosis, prevention, treatment, and prognosis of EIDs. As such, it will be a valuable resource for improving the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of EIDs. Editors Pu-Xuan Lu and Bo-Ping Zhou are professors at Shenzhen Third People's Hospital, Guangdong Medical College, China.

    With its complex anatomy and specialized biomechanics, the human hand has always presented physicians with a unique challenge when it comes to diagnosing and treating the diseases that afflict it. And while recent decades have seen a rapid increase in the number of therapeutic options, many diseases and injuries of the hand are still commonly misinterpreted. In this book, an interdisciplinary team, comprising specialists in radiology, surgery, and rheumatology, presents a comprehensive, reliable guide to this topographically intricate area. Highlights include: More than 1,000 high-quality illustrations; state-of-the-art imaging modalities -- including multiline spiral CR, with 2D displays and 3D reconstructions, and contrast -- enhanced MRI with multi-channel, phased-array coils; an overview of all currently used methods of examination; a detailed presentation of the anatomic and functional foundations necessary for diagnosis; full coverage of all disorders of the hand; and systematic treatment of each disease's definition, pathogenesis, and clinical symptoms, according to a graduated diagnostic plan.

    "DP: Gastrointestinal, Second Edition provides quick, up-to-date information on gastrointestinal pathology, both visual and factual, to either help the pathologist arrive at the correct diagnosis or refresh his or her memory about the diagnosis itself. Instead of full prose text, we have provided a stripped-down outline format. The key facts regarding each diagnosis are then highlighted in a box for ease of use. Tables highlighting the salient immunostains &/or molecular tests useful in the differential diagnosis of lesions are provided when appropriate, and all diagnoses are illustrated with high-quality color images taken with the intent of mimicking real practice. We hope that this book is useful as a quick reference at the microscope during sign-out, whether to look up something as esoteric as microsporidia or something as common as serrated colorectal polyps. While the images in this book will never be outdated, the same cannot be said for the text (how many new antibodies have come out in the time it took you to read this page?). To help alleviate this problem, the purchaser has a license to ExpertConsult, the eBook version of Diagnostic Pathology: Gastrointestinal, Second Edition, which will undergo regular updates."--Provided by publisher.

    Which disease should you consider when a young adult has localized bone pain that is dramatically relieved by aspirin? What is sometimes the only physical manifestation of bulimia nervosa? These so-called "old fashioned" historical clues and physical signs are not only part of our medical heritage; their deployment can often spell the difference between prompt clinical diagnosis versus a costly investigative odyssey. Often overlooked with today's emphasis on laboratory testing, a diagnostic pearl such as knowing that a diabetic patient with peripheral neuropathy may actually have metformin-induced vitamin B12 deficiency can be a shortcut to disease recognition.Diagnostic Principles and Applications presents selected literature-based facts and diagnostic insights to help clinicians provide better-informed clinical assessments, avoid medical misadventures, and prepare for their board examinations. The chapters cover:Classic diagnostic pearlsRed flag symptoms and signs of serious illnessBellwether disease indications allowing an occasional early, preemptive diagnosisCounterintuitive clinical manifestations of diseaseCurious clues to specific diagnosesRobert B. Taylor, MD is the author and editor of more than two dozen medical books, including three on the topic of clinical diagnosis, and several hundred published articles. He is a veteran of both rural private practice and chairmanship of a medical school clinical department.

    In times of emergency, clear communication is critical to saving lives and preventing further destruction. Operations in the field, negotiations between governments and relief organizations, and planning and training sessions all require collaboration among people from various disciplines using different terminologies. Without a common lexicon, misunderstandings and other communication errors can lead to the loss of valuable time, scarce resources, and lives--and during an era marked by climate disasters, warfare, industrial accidents, and threats of bioterrorism, the stakes are increasingly high. It is in this spirit that the original Dictionary of Disaster Medicine and Humanitarian Relief was assembled, and the same holds true for this timely Second Edition. This practical resource boasts more than twice the number of entries as the first edition: definitions, abbreviations, and acronyms covering all phases of humanitarian aid, from planning and preparedness to rescue and recovery. Its contents have been field-tested across the emergency intervention community, and are as useful in communicating with the media and the public as with colleagues. This expanded edition of the Dictionary of Disaster Medicine and Humanitarian Relief ably follows its predecessor as an authoritative resource for researchers and professionals in global health, health promotion, public health, public health policy, and disaster management.

    "Diet and Exercise in Cognitive Function and Neurological Diseases looks at the role and impact that nutrition and activity have on cognitive function and neurological health. The book is divided into the two sections. The first focuses on diet and its impact on neurobiological processes. Chapters focus on the impacts of specific diets, such as the Mediterranean diet, ketogenic and vegan diets, as well as the role specific nutrients, fats, fatty acids, and caloric intake have on neurological health and cognitive function. The second part of the book focuses on exercise, and its role in maintaining cognitive function, reducing neuroinflammatory responses, regulating adult neurogenesis, and healthy brain aging. Other chapters in this section look at the impacts of disease in the management of specific neurological disorders such multiple sclerosis and Parkinson's disease. Collectively, the chapters in Diet and Exercise in Cognitive Function and Neurological Diseases come together to form a timely reference on the neurobiological interplay between diet and exercise on long-term brain health and cognitive function"--Provided by publisher.

    "The idea of producing a book on the prevention of chronic diseases through exercise and diet was intriguing for me when I was first approached with the idea. I had been teaching nutrition, exercise, and health science courses with a focus on cellular aspects of prevention for many years and had to develop all of my own materials because very few books were available. And of those that were, they had a decided clinical approach with very little discussion about the actual biochemistry or molecular mechanisms involved in prevention. When I broached the concept with several potential coauthors, the prevailing opinion was that books that covered biochemical and molecular aspects of disease etiology also were in very short supply. Thus this book was born: an attempt to collate the latest cellular- and molecularbased research on the etiology of chronic diseases with how these mechanisms of cause are modified by various aspects of diet and exercise. Essentially, we have tried to produce a text that translates molecular-based data on etiology and prevention into a clinical prescription for the prevention of chronic disease. The focus on diabetes, atherosclerosis, osteoporosis, cancer, and degenerative neurological disease is because they are the major causes of morbidity and mortality by chronic disease and also because there is sufficient molecular evidence for a strong dietary and activity (or rather, an insufficiency of both) component to their etiology. The inclusion of a separate chapter on "Inflammation" became necessary when it was clear that inflammatory signaling is a fundamental component of each of these diseases and that reducing inflammation is key to reducing risk for all of these diseases. At the time we started, obesity had not yet been declared a diseas"-- Provided by publisher.

    "Preface: Fiber offers a variety of health benefits and is essential to reduce the risk of such chronic diseases as diabetes, obesity, cardiovascular disease, and diverticulitis. According to the Institute of Medicine (IOM), adequate intake (AI) of total fiber should be 14 g/1000 kcal. The IOM recommendation is joined by those from a variety of government public health agencies that promote increased fiber consumption, but a majority of people in developed countries still fall short of recommended values. On average, Americans consume only half of required intake, and approximately 90% of the U.S. population fails to meet AI goals. The problem stems largely from the fact that most conventional high-fiber foods are not tasty. Their organoleptic properties lack the kind of sensory attributes that people seek in the foods they eat. This makes it imperative for food companies to formulate tasty foods with high fiber content to improve population-wide consumption. Many have done so with new fiber ingredients that satisfy consumer demands while also delivering the health benefits of fiber. This book discusses findings from the Ninth Vahouny Fiber Symposium, which was held in Bethesda, Maryland, in June 2010. It includes a definition of fiber developed through expert consensus and delves into the many health benefits of fiber, including its prebiotic effects and roles in weight management, glycemic control, cardiovascular health, and intestinal regularity. It also reviews a variety of fiber ingredients that can be used in many appealing foods. The book provides details of claim opportunities for fiber ingredients and fiber-containing foods as well as a list of global suppliers of these ingredients. It is designed for use by food product developers, nutritionists, dietitians, and regulatory agencies"--Provided by publisher.

    Differential diagnosis in pediatric dermatology requires not only a direct experience in the field, but also an inclination to symptoms observations and analysis.This book, the first exclusively devoted to this topic, covers the full range of relevant conditions: inherited skin disorders; nevi; viral, bacterial, fungal, and parasitic infections; acne; allergic diseases; autoimmune skin disorders; connective tissue diseases; tumors; and miscellaneous conditions. Each chapter addresses the differential diagnosis between two (or occasionally three or four) dermatological conditions. All chapters are just two pages long, containing between two and six images and a very short text emphasizing the clinical differences between the diseases in question. At the end of each chapter, a summary highlights one or two characteristics essential for the differential diagnosis. The volume will represent an ideal tool for pediatric dermatologists, pediatricians, and GPs, and will help them in the diagnosic process.

    "Efficiency is the key word at the heart of the concept for this diagnostic atlas - efficiency of presentation and diagnostic efficiency achieved through its use. The contents are arranged in chapters according to organ or body part. Each chapter begins with a list of the radiographic findings referring to the relevant table/page number for that finding. The text within these tables is presented under three columns: possible diagnoses, radiographic findings, and general comments. Corresponding sample images of the highest quality are then provided for the more common conditions throughout. Rare diseases are marked with asterisks and are illustrated where appropriate. The hard-pressed radiologist will welcome this work as an efficient and reliable guide to the interpretation of pediatric images"--Provided by publisher.

    This richly illustrated book is intended as a gold standard for the refractive surgeon. It complements the authors? successful previous book, Management of Complications in Refractive Surgery, by providing detailed practical information on the management of specific cases. Worldwide leaders in the field document a wide range of challenging cases drawn from their own clinical practice. These cases relate to the planning of refractive laser treatment; intraoperative complications when using LASIK (Microkeratome and Femtosecond) and various surface treatments, including PRK, PTK, and EpiLASIK; early and late postoperative complications with these treatments; and a range of other complications that may arise during or after refractive surgery. This book will be an indispensable aid for the refractive surgeon and will assist in decision making when the surgeon is confronted by a difficult case.

    You could read every textbook available on hair growth and disorders, and still not be able to treat hair loss effectively. In every art, there are many techniques, but few principles. The only way to achieve success is to have a firm foundation of principles to build upon, and the right attitude about how to achieve your goals. This book offers a detailed guide that goes beyond the technical aspects of trichology and evidence based medicine, providing specialists and primary care physicians experienced in the basic management of hair loss with the additional know-how they need to master the ultimate challenge of difficult hair loss patients. First, the prerequisites for successful management of hair loss are reviewed ? basically, making a diagnosis and understanding the patient and his or her problem. Then, guidelines on the management of difficult dermatologic conditions and of psychopathological disorders associated with hair loss are provided. Lastly, important aspects of follow-up are covered?specifically the problems of adverse effects, patient non-compliance, and their management?before concluding with exemplary case studies of successful treatment of alopecia and related conditions.

    This innovative and important book describes a practical and clinically-relevant approach to the 'difficult' psychiatric consultation. The authors systematically examine psychodynamic theories, family systems theories, and legal and ethical aspects of these consultations. Difficult Psychiatric Consultations: An Integrated Approach is unique compared to most psychiatric texts, in that it weaves traditional concepts in understanding a person and their family with contemporary developmental and relational concepts. The importance of these concepts, when applied to the study of the complexities and the interplay between patients, treatment teams and patients' families in today's medical centers, is brought to life through rich, real-life clinical examples. These powerful clinical vignettes allow the reader to put himself in the psychiatric consultant's shoes as he navigates practical interventions to improve the outcomes of 'difficult' consultations. To that end, the authors provide tables to outline pre and post diagnosis observable patterns of the parties involved in the psychiatric consultation. This book has much to offer to general psychiatrists, child and adolescent psychiatrists, psychiatric residents, psychologists, nurse practitioners and social workers.

    The biology, behavior and management of diffuse low-grade gliomas (DLGG) in adults have been matters of controversy for many decades. However, recent technical and conceptual advances in genetics, imaging and treatments have paved the way towards individualized management. In addition, advancing knowledge of brain processing means that it is possible to take into consideration the interaction between the disease (low-grade glioma) and the host (the brain) and thus to modulate the therapeutic strategies with the goal to increase the median survival as well as to improve the quality of life. Diffuse Low-Grade Gliomas in Adults: Natural History, Interaction with the Brain, and New Individualized Therapeutic Strategies presents the latest research pertaining to the diagnosis, therapy and management of diffuse low-grade gliomas (DLGG) in adults, with a particular focus on the path towards individualized therapy for this kind of tumor. Recent research on the natural history of DLGGs and their interaction with the brain has led to new diagnostic and therapeutic strategies which increase survival and quality of life of the patient, and these methods are described in this book. This book uniquely focuses on addressing diffuse low-grade gliomas in adults and is a valuable resource for medical oncologists, neuro-oncologists and neurologists.

    Diffusion Tensor Imaging (DTI) is a variation of diffusion-weighed imaging. Particularly in the neurosciences, this technique has gained tremendous momentum in the past decade, both from a technical point of view as well as in its applications. DTI is mainly used in neurological diagnosis and psychiatric and neurologic research, e.g. in order to locate brain tumors and depict their invasivity. DTI offers a unique in-vivo insight into the three-dimensional structure of the human central nervous system. While easy interpretation and evaluation is often hampered by the complexity of both the technique and neuroanatomy, this atlas helps you recognize every one of the important structures rapidly and unambiguously.In the introduction, this atlas provides a concise outline of the evolution of diffusion imaging and describes its potential applications. In the core part of the atlas, the neuroanatomically important structures are clearly labeled both on DTI-derived color maps and conventional MRI. Complex fiber architecture is illustrated schematically and described concisely in textboxes directly on the relevant page. In the final part of the atlas, a straightforward, step-by-step approach for the three-dimensional reconstruction of the most prominent fiber structures is given, and potential pitfalls are indicated.The atlas aims at neuroscientists, neuroanatomists, neurologists, psychiatrists, clinical psychologists, physicists, and computer scientists. For advanced users, the atlas may serve as a reference work, while students and scientists are thoroughly introduced into DTI.

    For the past few decades, technology has been touted as the cure for all of healthcare's ills, yet medicine stubbornly resisted computerization-- until now. Thanks largely to billions of dollars in federal incentives, healthcare has finally gone digital. Wachter examines healthcare at the dawn of its computer age, and shows how technology is changing care at the bedside. He questions whether government intervention has been useful or destructive-- and does so with clarity, insight, humor, and compassion.

    The monitoring of the effects of retinopathy on the visual system can be assisted by analyzing the vascular architecture of the retina. This book presents methods based on Gabor filters to detect blood vessels in fundus images of the retina. Forty images of the retina from the Digital Retinal Images for Vessel Extraction (DRIVE) database were used to evaluate the performance of the methods. The results demonstrate high efficiency in the detection of blood vessels with an area under the receiver operating characteristic curve of 0:96. Monitoring the openness of the major temporal arcade (MTA) could facilitate improved diagnosis and optimized treatment of retinopathy. This book presents methods for the detection and modeling of the MTA, including the generalized Hough transform to detect parabolic forms. Results obtained with 40 images of the DRIVE database, compared with hand-drawn traces of the MTA, indicate a mean distance to the closest point of about 0:24 mm. This book illustrates applications of the methods mentioned above for the analysis of the effects of proliferative diabetic retinopathy and retinopathy of prematurity on retinal vascular architecture.

    Fundus images of the retina are color images of the eye taken by specially designed digital cameras. Ophthalmologists rely on fundus images to diagnose various diseases that affect the eye, such as diabetic retinopathy and retinopathy of prematurity. A crucial preliminary step in the analysis of retinal images is the identification and localization of important anatomical structures, such as the optic nerve head (ONH), the macula, and the major vascular arcades. Identification of the ONH is an important initial step in the detection and analysis of the anatomical structures and pathological features in the retina. Different types of retinal pathology may be detected and analyzed via the application of appropriately designed techniques of digital image processing and pattern recognition. Computer-aided analysis of retinal images has the potential to facilitate quantitative and objective analysis of retinal lesions and abnormalities. Accurate identification and localization of retinal features and lesions could contribute to improved diagnosis, treatment, and management of retinopathy.

    Making a good diagnostic image is only the beginning; keeping it good and diagnostically sound is a much more difficult proposition, one that is often neglected or forgotten by clinical practitioners. With anything digital, the assumption of persistent original quality opens a Pandora's box of medical fiascos. Poorly selected image interpolation, thoughtlessly used compression, confused image enhancement options and the like can transform a good original into a useless clutter of pixels. This book is dedicated to learning better options.

    The current unprecedented rate of digitization of longitudinal health data --- continuous device monitoring data, laboratory measurements, medication orders, treatment reports, reports of physician assessments --- allows visibility into patient health at increasing levels of detail. A clearer lens into this data could help improve decision making both for individual physicians on the front lines of care, and for policy makers setting national direction. However, this type of data is high-dimensional (an infant with no prior clinical history can have more than 1000 different measurements in the ICU), highly unstructured (the measurements occur irregularly, and different numbers and types of measurements are taken for different patients) and heterogeneous (from ultrasound assessments to lab tests to continuous monitor data). Furthermore, the data is often sparse, systematically not present, and the underlying system is non-stationary. Extracting the full value of the existing data requires novel approaches. In this thesis, we develop novel methods to show how longitudinal health data contained in Electronic Health Records (EHRs) can be harnessed for making novel clinical discoveries. For this, one requires access to patient outcome data --- which patient has which complications. We present a method for automated extraction of patient outcomes from EHR data; our method shows how natural languages cues from the physicians notes can be combined with clinical events that occur during a patient's length of stay in the hospital to extract significantly higher quality annotations than previous state-of-the-art systems. We develop novel methods for exploratory analysis and structure discovery in bedside monitor data. This data forms the bulk of the data collected on any patient yet, it is not utilized in any substantive way post collection. We present methods to discover recurring shape and dynamic signatures in this data. While we primarily focus on clinical time series, our methods also generalize to other continuous-valued time series data. Our analysis of the bedside monitor data led us to a novel use of this data for risk prediction in infants. Using features automatically extracted from physiologic signals collected in the first 3 hours of life, we develop Physiscore, a tool that predicts infants at risk for major complications downstream. Physiscore is both fully automated and significantly more accurate than the current standard of care. It can be used for resource optimization within a NICU, managing infant transport to a higher level of care and parental counseling. Overall, this thesis illustrates how the use of machine learning for analyzing these large scale digital patient data repositories can yield new clinical discoveries and potentially useful tools for improving patient care.

    Digital retinal imaging performed by primary care providers and nurses, followed by remote image interpretation (teleretinal imaging), is rapidly acquiring a crucial role in many parts of the world as it permits the detection of major diseases, such as diabetic retinopathy and glaucoma, in patients who would otherwise be beyond the reach of a trained ophthalmologist. In this book, experts from around the world describe how digital teleretinal screening can be set up and optimally utilized. Technical issues are discussed, and the appropriate use of screening for different diseases and in different age groups is explained. The major part of the book draws upon the clinical experience of leading practitioners in a wide range of teleretinal applications. The result is a comprehensive source of high-quality information for clinicians and other health professionals who are involved in eye care delivery, so that they can assess how teleretinal screening might be applied to their working practice.

    In these hard times of global financial peril and growing social inequality, injuries to dignity are pervasive. "Indignity has many faces," one man told Nora Jacobson as she conducted interviews for this book. Its expressions range from rudeness, indifference, and condescension to objectification, discrimination, and exploitation. Yet dignity can also be promoted. Another man described it as "common respect," suggesting dignity's ordinariness, and the ways we can create and share it through practices like courtesy, leveling, and contribution. Dignity and Health examines the processes and structures of dignity violation and promotion, traces their consequences for individual and collective health, and uses the model developed to imagine how we might reform our systems of health and social care. With its focus on the dignity experiences of those often excluded from the mainstream--people who are poor, or homeless, or dealing with mental health problems--as well as on vulnerabilities like age or sickness or unemployment that threaten to make us all feel "less than," Dignity and Health recognizes dignity as a moral matter embedded in the choices we make every day.

    Directed evolution of large combinatorial chemistry libraries is an emerging approach for small-molecule discovery. To advance this field, we have developed a DNA-programmed chemistry technique that enables breeding of drug-like compounds over multiple generations. The progeny from each cycle of synthesis, selection, and amplification act as the starting point for a subsequent generation; thus the evolutionary cycle can be iterated. The linkage between genotype and phenotype is accomplished by coupling each unique compound to a DNA gene that programs its synthesis. Here we establish the behavior of our technology using a model selection for kinase substrates. We show that the platform behaves in a predictable manner and that it should be capable of identifying useful molecules from very large compound libraries. We then use the technology to discover novel biologically active small molecules by applying a purifying selection to a naive DNA-programmed library comprising 1.1 billion distinct compounds. Given the comprehensive nature of the combinatorial synthesis and the deep sampling enabled by high throughput sequencing, we can observe the simultaneous enrichment of different chemical families, increasing our chances of identifying a true hit. We have thus identified the first known non-peptidic substrate for protein kinase. This work demonstrates the feasibility to chemically probe the substrate binding sites of kinases. More broadly, we have performed the first directed evolution of a billion member combinatorial library. We anticipate that our approach will lead to the discovery of novel small-molecule affinity reagents, pharmaceutical compound leads, imaging probes and other high-value compounds. This could substantially increase global access to small-molecule reagents, and open up new areas of biological inquiry.

    "Obesity is currently regarded as one of the major health challenges of the developed world. Excess body weight is an important risk factor for morbidity and mortality from cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, cancer, musculoskeletal disorders and even psychiatric problems and is estimated to cause nearly 3 million deaths per year worldwide. Obesity is not necessarily associated with comorbidities: there are indeed metabolically healthy obese individuals. Thus, we need to consider individuals presenting simple with obesity separately from those at risk of developing or who have already developed complex clinical states potentially leading to disability. Comorbidities can tip the balance of independence in patients who already have functional limitations mainly due to the excess of mass itself or who develop conditions such as diabetes, cardiovascular conditions, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, where an abnormal metabolism of adipose tissue prevails. Morbid obesity with comorbidities leading to disability represents a real social and economic burden for National Health Systems worldwide. The presence of multiple and associated comorbidities often represents an obstacle to being admitted to hospitals for the treatment of metabolic diseases. On the other hand, clinical units with optimal standards for the treatment of pathological conditions in normal-weight patients are often structurally and technologically inadequate for the care of patients with extreme obesity. The aim of this book is to focus on the pathophysiological and rehabilitative aspects of disabling obesity, highlighting multidisciplinary rehabilitation interventions as key to counteracting the disabling aspects of complicated obesity"--Provided by publisher.

    This authoritative volume provides a contemporary view on the latest research in molecules with optimal drug-like properties. It is a valuable source to access current best practices as well as new research techniques and strategies. Written by leading scientists in their fields, the text consists of fourteen chapters with an underlying theme of early collaborative opportunities between pharmaceutical and discovery sciences. The book explores the practical realities of performing physical pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical research in the context of drug discovery with short timelines and low compound availability. Chapters cover strategies and tactics to enable discovery as well as predictive approaches to establish, understand and communicate risks in early development. It also examines the detection, characterization and assessment of risks on the solid state properties of advanced discovery and early development candidates, highlighting the link between solid state properties and critical development parameters such as solubility and stability. Final chapters center on techniques to improve molecular solubilization and prevent precipitation, with particularly emphasis on linking physiochemical properties of molecules to formulation selection in preclinical and clinical settings.

    Whi3 is an RNA binding protein that regulates cell cycle entry by binding to mRNA of the G1 cyclin CLN3 and to the cyclin-dependent kinase Cdc28. Cln3 binds to Cdc28 to promote passage through Start. whi3[delta] cells have a small size phenotype, and Whi3 may regulate cell size by sequestering CLN3 mRNA and Cdc28 protein in the cytoplasm to delay G1 entry (Wang et al., 2004). We observe that Whi3 reversibly localizes from the cytosol to cytoplasmic puncta in response to glucose deprivation and heat shock. This phenotype is shared by components of stress granules (SGs), which are large RNP complexes that form in yeast in response to various stress conditions; SGs sort and process mRNAs during the stress response (Buchan et al., 2008). Because Whi3 shares several characteristics with known SG components, including an RNA binding domain and stress-dependent relocalization, we hypothesize that Whi3 is a novel component of SGs. We show that Whi3 colocalizes with SG markers in response to glucose deprivation and heat shock. Preventing SG formation inhibits Whi3 foci formation. Like SG components, Whi3 is enriched in insoluble cell fractions during stress. Whi3 is not required for SG formation, but may be targeted to SGs to carry out a previously unknown function. We conclude that Whi3 is a novel component of yeast stress granules. This observation suggests an alternative model for Whi3 function: that Whi3 might regulate mRNA translation during stress by transporting mRNA to stress granules. We demonstrate that Whi3 regulates many of its interacting RNAs, and that this regulation may promote stress-dependent survival.

    Recent advances in transcriptome analysis have revealed a large number of non-protein coding transcripts that have previously been uncharacterized. A subset of these molecules, termed long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs), has been implicated in the regulation of chromatin states. Here, we detail a journey of lncRNA discovery and analysis, beginning from the de novo discovery of lncRNAs within the promoters of cell cycle genes, followed by the functional characterization of select candidates. We characterize two examples that regulate the p53-mediated DNA damage response. LncRNA PANDA blocks the apoptosis pathway by inhibiting the transcription factor NF-YA, and lncRNA DINO regulates the p53 transcriptional response by regulating SET7-mediated post-translational modification. Altogether, these studies support a model whereby pervasive lncRNA transcripts, previously discarded as transcriptional byproducts, function through diverse mechanisms as critical regulators of biological pathways.

    CLC chloride channels and transporters play diverse physiological roles in processes ranging from regulating bone-density, muscle excitability, and blood pressure, to facilitating extreme-acid survival of pathogenic bacteria. Defects in CLC proteins cause human disorders in these processes. Small-molecule inhibitors of the CLCs would be useful as drugs for treating a variety of CLC-related human diseases and also to investigate CLC physiology. In addition, inhibitors are powerful tools for studying molecular mechanisms of Cl-- gating. Trapping channels or transporters in particular conformational states with high-affinity ligands could potentially advance our understanding of the structural basis for CLC activity. Despite their usefulness, specific small-molecule inhibitors for CLC proteins are scarce. To address this shortfall, we have exploited the 4,4'-diisothiocyanatostilbene-2,2'-disulfonic acid (DIDS) scaffold to develop two novel classes of CLC inhibitors. DIDS has been used as an anion-transport inhibitor for decades and was first used to inhibit CLCs over 30 years ago. However, experiments to determine the compound's mode of inhibition led us to discover that minor contaminants in the DIDS solutions inhibit CLC proteins more effectively than DIDS itself. The contaminants were found to derive from hydrolysis of the labile isothiocyanate moieties. The structures of five major hydrolysis products were determined by 1H NMR, HRMS analysis, and chemical synthesis to be DIDS-based polythioureas. These compounds bind directly to the CLC proteins, as evidenced by the fact that they inhibit purified, reconstituted ClC-ec1 and that inhibition of ClC-Ka can be prevented by the point mutation N68D. These polythioureas are the highest affinity inhibitors known for the CLCs and provide a new class of chemical probes for dissecting the molecular mechanisms of chloride transport. The second class of identified CLC inhibitors combines the DIDS core structure with alkyl chain carboxylic acids. The most potent inhibitor identified, 4,4'-octanamidostilbene-2,2'-disulfonic acid (OADS), inhibits ClC-ec1 with an apparent affinity of 29 [Mu]M. As a means to identify the inhibitor-binding site, we synthesized photo-reactive diazirine derivatives of OADS and showed that these photo-affinity reagents specifically inhibit ClC-ec1. Experiments to identify the binding site using 'top-down' mass spectrometry, in which the protein is cleaved into peptide fragments via electron-capture dissociation, have identified an intracellular binding region encompassing 76 amino acids, or 16% of the protein. Current efforts using protease digestion procedures are focused on further refinement of the binding region. Once located, protein/inhibitor interactions gleaned from the labeling of ClC-ec1 could allow us to rationally design more potent inhibitors of CLC transporters and channels.

    As there is a high incidence of disease recurrence after liver transplantation, this volume is designed around the need for a reference text dealing exclusively with this problem. The book places special emphasis on pre- and post-transplant predictors of recurrence, severity assessment, prophylaxis, and treatment. Pathobiology of disease recurrence is discussed in detail where applicable. Issues including quality of life and cost burden are also covered in the text. Written by well-known authorities in each field, Disease Recurrence After Liver Transplantation: Natural History, Treatment and Survival serves as a comprehensive reference for physicians and surgeons who take care of liver transplant recipients and a major addition to the literature detailing the current understanding of disease recurrence.

    Diseases of the Sinuses: A Comprehensive Textbook of Diagnosis and Treatment, 2nd Edition, offers the definitive source of information about the basic science of the sinuses and the clinical approach to sinusitis. Since the widely praised publication of the first edition, understanding of sinus disease has changed dramatically, mainly as a result of recent developments and new discoveries in the field of immunology. This updated and expanded edition is divided into sections addressing, separately, the pathogenesis, clinical presentation, medical and surgical management of acute and chronic rhinosinusitis. Special entities such as autoimmune-related sinusitis, allergy and sinusitis, and aspirin-exacerbated respiratory disease are discussed in separate chapters. The role of immunodeficiency is also addressed. The management section has been fully updated to incorporate new medical modalities and surgical procedures. Developed by a distinguished group of international experts who share their expertise and insights from years of collective experience in treating sinus diseases, the book will appeal to anyone who has an interest in sinus disease, including both physicians and allied health professionals. Internists, pediatricians, allergists, otolaryngologists and infectious disease specialists will find the book to be an invaluable, comprehensive reference. Physician assistants and nurse practitioners who work with specialists who treat sinus disease will also benefit from the book.

    Spinal cord imaging has significantly benefited from new MR imaging methods such as cardiac-gated diffusion-weighted imaging, diffusion tensor imaging with fiber tracking, and time-resolved MR angiography. Recent decades have also witnessed fundamental progress in understanding of the pathophysiology of vascular, metabolic, and inflammatory spinal cord diseases. Furthermore, neurosurgical procedures and endovascular treatments of spinal cord diseases have been improved and perfected to avoid severe neurological sequelae. This textbook provides an interdisciplinary overview of the new imaging modalities, identifies clues for MR imaging diagnosis and differential diagnosis, and describes the anatomical background required to understand spinal cord diseases. Important neurological symptoms are highlighted, and modern treatment options for different diseases are fully explained and discussed. High-quality illustrations, including numerous images, are provided for all important spinal cord diseases, documenting relevant anatomical details, special MR imaging methods, differential diagnoses, and possible treatment procedures.

    Disease of the vitreo-macular interface is characterized by vitreo-macular adhesion (VMA), which can lead to abnormal forces on the retina termed vitreo-macular traction (VMT). This combination of VMA and VMT can itself cause impairment of vision and is implicated in a variety of disorders, including wet age-related macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, macular edema, and macular hole. Vitreo-macular interface disease has recently begun to receive more attention owing in part to the advent of new imaging techniques that allow more accurate diagnosis and in part to advances in treatment. This clinically oriented book is the first to be devoted wholly to the diagnosis and treatment of vitreo-macular interface disease. World-renowned experts in the field discuss epidemiologic, anatomic, and physiologic aspects, document the findings obtained with newer imaging techniques, such as spectral domain optical coherence tomography, describe the treatment options, and report on the results of preclinical and clinical trials, including some previously unpublished findings. This book will prove invaluable for ophthalmologists as we advance toward a future in which treatments of diseases such as age-related macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy will likely require adjunctive therapy to tackle VMA/VMT concurrently.

    Disorders of the Neonatal Airway serves as a comprehensive, multidisciplinary resource for all practitioners who care for neonates with airway disorders. With the evolution of advances in neonatology and neonatal airway care over the past three decades, the survival rate and life expectancy of premature newborns have dramatically increased to well over 50% in 24-25 week gestation infants. Unfortunately, survival with long-term intubation has brought a corresponding increase in acquired airway disorders needing collaborative high level ne
