    This book brings together all the relevant available science behind face transplants. It is comprehensive in its coverage, encompassing patient and donor evaluation, ethics, legal issues, psychological issues, types of transplant, surgical technique, issues relating to immunosuppression, follow-up protocols, and current outcomes. Facial transplantation, which allows the replacement of missing anatomy with a perfect match based on transplant medicine principles, has become the most striking innovation in plastic surgery of the twenty-first century as surgeons and scientists progress from reconstructive surgery to restorative surgery. A robust team approach is, however, necessary to produce safe and efficient outcomes, and numerous questions are arising, from technical issues to ethical dilemmas. The reader will discover in this volume all the information required in order to understand this new discipline and to be able to set up a program of facial transplantation.

    Articular cartilage is a unique and highly specialized avascular connective tissue in which the availability of oxygen and glucose is significantly lower than synovial fluid and plasma. Glucose is an essential source of energy during embryonic growth and fetal development and is vital for mesenchymal cell differentiation, chondrogenesis and skeletal morphogenesis. Glucose is an important metabolic fuel for differentiated chondrocytes during post-natal development and in adult articular cartilage and is a common structural precursor for the synthesis of extracellular matrix glycosaminoglycans.

    One of the American Medical Association's core strategic objectives is to advance health care delivery and payment models that enable high-quality, affordable care and restore and preserve physician satisfaction. Such changes could yield a more sustainable and effective health care system with highly motivated physicians. To that end, the AMA asked RAND Health to characterize the factors that lead to physician satisfaction. RAND sought to identify high-priority determinants of professional satisfaction that can be targeted within a variety of practice types, especially as smaller and independent practices are purchased by or become affiliated with hospitals and larger delivery systems. Researchers gathered data from 30 physician practices in six states, using a combination of surveys and semistructured interviews. This report presents the results of the subsequent analysis, addressing such areas as physicians' perceptions of the quality of care, use of electronic health records, autonomy, practice leadership, and work quantity and pace. Among other things, the researchers found that physicians who perceived themselves or their practices as providing high-quality care reported better professional satisfaction. Physicians, especially those in primary care, were frustrated when demands for greater quantity of care limited the time they could spend with each patient, detracting from the quality of care in some cases. Electronic health records were a source of both promise and frustration, with major concerns about interoperability between systems and with the amount of physician time involved in data entry.

    This book provides an up-to-date and comprehensive overview of the etiology, diagnosis, and treatment of conditions affecting the structure and function of the right heart, comprising the right atrium, right ventricle, tricuspid valve, and pulmonary circulation. The right ventricle works against a reduced afterload as compared to the left ventricle, and the clinical picture of heart failure is generally dominated by the symptoms of left heart failure and hence initially neglected until they evolve into overt right heart failure with splanchnic congestion. When picked up at the very late stage, medical management and mechanical support of right heart failure are considered ineffective, and heart transplantation offers the only treatment option. The Failing Right Heart will be an essential reference for cardiac surgeons, cardiologists, cardiac anesthesiologists and cardiac intensivists on the diagnosis and treatment of patients with congenital or acquired right heart disease. The book deals with anatomy and physiology of the right heart, the etiology and the role of imaging of right heart failure, as well as the treatment options, from pharmacological regimes to surgery. Algorithms and flow diagrams are included to provide the reader with illustrated snapshots of the decisions involved in the management of these patients.

    This book, written by very well known opinion leaders in the field, covers all aspects of familial Mediterranean fever, the most common monogenic autoinflammatory disease. The opening chapters explain the genetic basis of the disease and provide insights into the pathogenesis derived from recent experimental studies. A large part of the book is then devoted to a detailed description of the typical and atypical clinical presentations, the disease course, and potential complications in both pediatric and adult patients. Guidance is provided on the measurement of disease severity and the management of patients in daily practice. The advice regarding treatment is based on the best currently available evidence and attention is also paid to important emerging treatments. The book is part of Springer's series Rare Diseases of the Immune System, which presents recently acquired knowledge on pathogenesis, diagnosis, and therapy with the aim of promoting a more holistic approach to these conditions. Monogenic autoinflammatory diseases are hereditary disorders that are caused by single-gene defects in innate immune regulatory pathways and are characterized by a clinical and biological inflammatory syndrome in which there is limited, if any, evidence of autoimmunity. Familial Mediterranean fever itself is due to a mutation in the MEFV gene, which codes for the protein pyrin; it is characterized by periodic fever and episodes of painful inflammation in the abdomen, chest, and joints. Familial Mediterranean Fever will be an invaluable source of up-to-date information for all practitioners involved in the care of patients with the disease.

    "The advent of nanotechnology has unleashed enormous prospects for the development of new products and applications for a wide range of industrial and consumer sectors. The new technological developments have already opened up a multibillion dollar industry in recent years, the global market impact of which is expected to reach US$1 trillion by 2015, with around 2 million workers. While the majority of manufacturing and use of nanoscale materials occurs in the United States, the European Union, with its around 30 percent global share of the sector, is not lagging far behind in this field. Like other sectors, nanotechnology promises to revolutionize the whole food chain--from production to processing, storage, and development of innovative materials, products and applications. Although the potential applications of nanotechnoloy are wide ranging, the current applications in the food and agricultural sectors are relatively few, because the science is still newly emergent. An overview of more than 800 nanotechnology-based consumer products that are currently available worldwide, suggests that only around 10 percent of these are foods, beverages and food packaging products. However, nanotechnology-derived products and applications in these sectors have been steadily increasing in recent years, and are predicted to grow rapidly in the future. This is because the new technologies have a great potential to address many of the industry's current needs." - p. 3

    Andrew Solomon.
    "In Far from the Tree, Andrew Solomon tells the stories of parents who not only learn to deal with their exceptional children but also find profound meaning in doing so. His proposition is that diversity is what unites us all. He writes about families coping with deafness, dwarfism, Down syndrome, autism, schizophrenia, multiple severe disabilities, with children who are prodigies, who are conceived in rape, who become criminals, who are transgender. While each of these characteristics is potentially isolating, the experience of difference within families is universal, as are the triumphs of love he documents in every chapter. All parenting turns on a crucial question: to what extent parents should accept their children for who they are, and to what extent they should help them become their best selves. Drawing on 40,000 pages of interview transcripts with more than three hundred families, the author mines the eloquence of ordinary people facing extreme challenges. Whether considering prenatal screening for genetic disorders, cochlear implants for the deaf, or gender reassignment surgery for transgender people, he narrates a universal struggle toward compassion. Many families grow closer through caring for a challenging child; most discover supportive communities of others similarly affected; some are inspired to become advocates and activists, celebrating the very conditions they once feared. Woven into their courageous and affirming stories is the author's journey to accepting his own identity, which culminated in his midlife decision, influenced by this research, to become a parent. In this book he explores themes of generosity, acceptance, and tolerance, all rooted in the insight that love can transcend every prejudice; and expands our definition of what it is to be human."--Back cover.

    Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is a non-invasive modality for neuroimaging that has been widely applied into various clinical and scientific studies. In many applications, one particular challenge for MRI is the scanning speed and efficiency. Three major novel fast neuroimaging techniques are presented in this work, including high-resolution 3D diffusion imaging (3D-SNAILS), an iterative reconstruction algorithm for high accelerating parallel imaging (PRUNO), and motion insensitive 3D non-contrast perfusion imaging (3D-PCASL-PROMO). 3D DWI and DTI provide attractive features such as isotropic resolution, high SNR and good tractography. However, 3D volumetric DWI/DTI scans suffer from long scan time and severe motion artifacts. In this project, a steady-state multi-shot pulse sequence is demonstrated to perform fast high resolution 3D diffusion imaging, in which 3D self-navigated interleaved rotating spirals (3D-SNAILS) are used as readout trajectories. This acquisition scheme has low sensitivity to motion induced phase errors and the inherent navigators can be utilized to further reduce motion artifacts. In vivo human/animal results have shown that this technique can be used to perform 3D high resolution DTI studies, particularly for animals with smaller brains. GRAPPA has been a successful k-space data-driven reconstruction algorithm for parallel imaging during the last decade. However, the performance of GRAPPA drops significantly as the accelerating factor increases. A novel iterative method termed parallel reconstruction using null operations (PRUNO) is developed in this project. In this approach, both data calibration and image reconstruction are formulated into generalized linear system equations based on intrinsic small k-space nulling kernels. And a conjugate-gradient (CG) method is proposed to solve the reconstruction equation feasibly. With more accurate problem formulation and higher calibration efficiency, PRUNO produces much better image quality than GRAPPA, especially under high accelerating factors. Pulsed continuous arterial spin labeling (PCASL) is a novel technique for 3D whole-brain perfusion imaging. However, a whole brain clinical PCASL protocol takes long imaging time due to multiple image acquisitions and averages. A real-time motion correction algorithm is thus desired for such a protocol. Prospective motion correction (PROMO) is a navigator based module, which can be easily inserted into various MR pulse sequences for real-time 3D motion estimation and correction. PROMO is successfully integrated into PCASL in this project. Our preliminary results show that the new pulse sequence is much more robust against patient motions and PROMO navigators have almost no negative influence to the imaging sequence. In addition, brief abstracts of two other fast imaging projects are also demonstrated in this dissertation, including a fast T2* imaging pulse sequence called iESGRE, and 7T diffusion imaging of rats using SNAILS.

    "The perception of an inadequate body shape is a cause of concern to many people, and new techniques for altering body shape are increasingly being developed and offered to patients. Of these, the removal and transfer of fat is fast growing in importance and availability. This practical guide offers a comprehensive overview of this rapidly-evolving field, and thorough coverage of the implementation of fat removal techniques, both invasive and non-invasive, in a cosmetic practice. It begins with an overview of basic fat anatomy and physiology as an important introduction to this topic. The distinction between the physiology and treatment of cellulite and fat is also discussed. The next section of the book covers invasive treatments of fat such as traditional liposuction, laser-assisted liposuction, fat transfer procedures and mesotherapy. The latter half of the book largely focuses on non-invasive treatments for fat, including radiofrequency, ultrasound, cooling and laser technologies for fat removal. Throughout, potential complications and pitfalls of the various treatments are discussed. Edited by Matthew Avram, with contributions from a group of clinical stars, this book will appeal to cosmetic dermatologists, plastic surgeons, aesthetic medical practitioners, and obstetricians/gynaecologists"--Provided by publisher.

    "Discovered and identified as the cause of mad cow disease only three decades ago, the prion is a protein molecule that, when misshapen in the brain, becomes fatal. Novel and controversial, prions have provoked a scientific revolution. They challenge the very foundations of biology: A disease-causing entity with no genetic material at all? A molecule capable of infecting, multiplying, and killing? This book recounts the birth of prion science and the imaginative detective work scientists have undertaken as they struggle to find the answers to devastating brain diseases from mad cow and Creutzfeld-Jakob disease to Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, Lou Gehrig's, and others. As in each of his best-selling books, Jay Ingram here makes complex scientific concepts accessible and shows how little-known events may have profound significance. He describes the development of prion science as a rough-and-tumble affair, with rivals, eccentrics, interfering governments, and brilliantly creative people all playing salient roles. Weaving biology, medicine, human tragedy, discovery, and bitter scientific competition into his account, he reveals the stunning potential of prion science, whose discoveries may unlock the answers to some of humankind's most destructive diseases"--Provided by publisher.

Septic systems under the best circumstances produce effluent quality equivalent to biologically or secondarily treated wastewater, which is known to be inefficient for removal of many PPCPs. This dissertation examines septic systems as a source of PPCP pollution. The occurrence, fate, and transport of a set of 25 organic contaminants commonly found in wastewater was studied at the scale of a watershed, a septic system, and in microcosms that simulated the geochemical conditions of a septic plume. The septic system study was carried out at Stinson Beach, CA and the watershed study at Liberty Bay, WA. The tested compounds included 19 pharmaceuticals, three personal care products, two herbicides and one flame retardant. They encompassed a structurally diverse group of chemicals with a wide range of physicochemical properties, with Log Kow ranging -0.07 to 4.77 as well as acidic and basic properties. First, sediments from Stinson Beach, CA were used in batch microcosm experiments to assess biotransformation and sorption under conditions simulating an aerobic groundwater system and the nitrate and sulfate reducing conditions of a septic plume. Transformation was found, in general, to be slower under anaerobic conditions than aerobic conditions. Half-lives ranged from 4 days to longer than 365 days for all conditions. Sorption did not fit the commonly used hydrophobic models governed by Log Kow, indicating the significance of factors other than hydrophobicity. These factors may include hydrogen bonding and electrostatic attraction due to one or several polar functional groups. Second, the occurrence and transport of PPCPs in a single septic system along the California coast was documented. Findings indicated that many PPCPs were refractory and mobile under the conditions of a leach field contaminant plume. Finally, in a watershed scale study in Liberty Bay, Washington, the occurrence of PPCPs thought to originate from septic systems was evaluated. The findings are consistent with laboratory data and usage patterns. The overall results of this dissertation suggest that septic systems, which support 25% of the United States population, may be a significant source of PPCP contamination to groundwater and surface waters.

    This volume provides a state-of-the-art update on Fc Receptors (FcRs). It is divided into five parts. Part I, Old and New FcRs, deals with the long-sought-after Fc[micro]R and the recently discovered FCRL family and TRIM21. Part II, FcR Signaling, presents a computational model of Fc[epsilon]RI signaling, novel calcium channels, and the lipid phosphatase SHIP1. Part III, FcR Biology, addresses major physiological functions of FcRs, their glycosylation, how they induce and regulate both adaptive immune responses and inflammation, especially in vivo, FcR humanized mice, and the multifaceted properties of FcRn. Part IV, FcRs and Disease, discusses FcR polymorphism, FcRs in rheumatoid arthritis and whether their FcRs make macaques good models for studying HIV infection. In Part V, FcRs and Therapeutic Antibodies, the roles of various FcRs, including FcgRIIB and FcbRI, in the immunotherapy of cancer and autoimmune diseases using monoclonal antibodies and IVIg are highlighted. All 18 chapters were written by respected experts in their fields, offering an invaluable reference source for scientists and clinicians interested in FcRs and how to better master antibodies for therapeutic purposes.

    "This book explains the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as an institution and provides understanding of its nomenclature, societal role, policies, goals and challenges. While many readers will have some knowledge of the FDA, few have an appreciation of the many specific areas of FDA authority. The FDA for Doctors is not for those looking for detailed instruction on dealing with the FDA or its operations. Rather, it is written by a doctor with doctors in mind, with the hope that the information in this book will make physicians, and other readers, more thoughtful and insightful, especially with regards totherapeutics and the many broad societal issues underlying FDA's activities. With over 40 years of experience as a clinical investigator in many trials done for FDA registration, the author has been a member of and chaired an FDA advisory committee, and has been a consultant to several divisions of the FDA. He has also had the opportunity to serve on the U.S. Senate Labor Committee, helping with its FDA oversight activities. In addition to a long academic medical career the author has been a consultant to and a full time employee of drug and device companies"--Back cover.

    FDG PET/CT has rapidly emerged as an invaluable combined imaging modality that can identify tumors on the basis of not only anatomical alterations but also metabolic activity, thus allowing the detection of lesions that would otherwise be too small to distinguish. This book, comprising a collection of images from oncology cases, is organized according to the role of FDG PET/CT in the evaluation and management of oncology patients, and only secondarily by organ or tumor entity. In this way, it reflects the issues that clinicians actually address in their daily practice, namely: identification of an unknown or unsuspected primary; determination of the extent of disease; evaluation of response to therapy; and surveillance after response, i.e., detection of recurrent disease. In total, 100 cases involving different primary tumors are presented to illustrate findings in these different circumstances. FDG PET/CT in Clinical Oncology will be of great value to all newcomers to this field, whether medical students, radiology, nuclear medicine, or oncology fellows, or practicing physicians.

    Five studies demonstrate that feeling wronged leads to a sense of entitlement and to selfish behavior. In Study 1, participants who were instructed to recall a time when their lives were unfair were more likely to refuse to help the experimenter with a supplementary task than were participants who recalled a time when they were bored. In Study 2, the same manipulation increased intentions to engage in a number of selfish behaviors, and this effect was mediated by self-reported entitlement to obtain positive (and avoid negative) outcomes. In Study 3, participants who lost a computer game for an unfair reason (a glitch in the program) requested a more selfish money allocation for a future task than did participants who lost the game for a fair reason, and this effect was again mediated by entitlement. In Studies 4 and 5, bad luck from a fair, random system led to the same kinds of effects for men. In Study 4, students (especially men) who received bad numbers in a housing lottery expressed less intention to behave charitably. In Study 5, men who were assigned to bad outcomes by the roll of a die were less willing to help out by signing up for an additional experiment than were men in the control condition, and self-reported entitlement again mediated the effect.

    Few dermatologic problems carry as many emotional overtones as hair loss in women, which is by far the most common hair problem encountered in daily clinical practice. Fortunately, a specific diagnosis can usually be established through a detailed patient history, examination of the scalp and pattern of hair loss, a simple pull test, dermoscopy of the scalp and hair (trichoscopy), a few pertinent screening blood tests, and, in selected cases, a scalp biopsy. Once the diagnosis has been established, treatment appropriate to the diagnosis is likely to control the problem. The aim of this comprehensively illustrated monograph is to provide both specialists and primary care physicians with the practical know-how required for successful management of hair loss in female patients of all ages. The book opens by critically examining myths about hair loss. The different examination techniques are then described, and the various forms of hair loss and their treatment are discussed in detail. Approaches to follow-up are outlined, and the management of patient expectations is carefully considered. The potential role of hair care and cosmetics is also explored in some depth.

    This is the first book of its kind to focus solely on the female athlete triad - its origins, its recognition, and most importantly, its management. Since the symptoms themselves cover a range of medical specialties, chapters are written by experts in a number of relevant fields - sports medicine, orthopedics, endocrinology, and pediatrics - with an eye toward overall care of the young female athlete. Additionally, each chapter includes suggestions on how to educate and communicate with young athletes and their parents, as well as trainers and coaches, on how to manage the illness outside of the direct clinical setting. The female athlete triad is often seen in sports where low body weight is emphasized, such as gymnastics, figure skating, and running, though it can appear in any sport or activity. The interrelated symptoms - eating disorders, amenorrhea, and low bone mass - exist on a spectrum of severity and are serious and potentially life-threatening if not properly treated. Psychological problems, in addition to medical ones, are not uncommon. The Female Athlete Triad: A Clinical Guide discusses all of these areas for a well-rounded and in-depth approach to the phenomenon and will be a useful reference for any clinician working with female athletes across the lifespan.

    "The book addresses the question of structural and functional differences between the female brain and the male brain. Are there differences? How good is the evidence? Where do the differences lie? Are there differences in the neuroanatomy of females, and if so, where? Do females and males process information differently, and if so, how? The author puts the relative lack of information on the female brain into historical perspective and reviews empirical evidence relevant to the different aspects of brain structure and function."--Jacket.

    This book reviews the promising new electrocardiographic (ECG) predictors of cardiac morbidity and mortality with the primary objective being to evaluate gender differences in special ECG features and in ECG predictors for the risk of adverse cardiac events and to explore mechanisms for gender differences in risk predictors. The Female Electrocardiogram elucidates the emergence of gender differences in ECG features and evaluates repolarization-related ECG predictors of various clinical disease categories with a special scope to interpret the mechanism and gender differences of the findings. The author examines how the predictors of adverse cardiac events are linked to basic electrophysiological finding whenever adequate information is available in this rapidly advances realm of research. The overall goal of the book is to facilitate understanding of the mechanisms and clinical relevance of repolarization abnormalities in both clinical and epidemiological applications, and as such will be of great interest to all who manage patients using ECG whether they be cardiac electrophysiologists, clinical cardiologists, critical care physicians or any medical professional in the disciplines covered.

    Fetal medicine has emerged as a separate subspecialty over the last 30 years as a result of major advances in a number of areas, in particular ultrasound imaging, cytogenetics, molecular biology and biochemistry. The widespread use of antenatal screening and diagnostic tests has led to an increased need for obstetricians to have knowledge and skills in fetal medicine. This book provides the information that underpins training programmes in fetal medicine and integrates science and clinical disciplines in a practical and useful way. Clinical sections include: the latest advances in prenatal screening; a systems-based presentation of the diagnosis and management of fetal malformations; complete coverage of common and rare fetal conditions including growth restriction, endocrine and platelet disorders, early pregnancy loss, and twins/multiple pregnancy. More focus on important basic-science concepts, such as maternofetal cell trafficking, and the relevance to clinical management.

    Intrinsic errors of skeletal development are individually rare but of clinical importance because of their overall frequency and their impact on a patient's life. Sonography has become a routine component of prenatal care, and many of these disorders are diagnosed prenatally. Postnatally, the prenatal diagnosis has to be verified. To this end, fetal radiography is an effective, simple and economic way to establish a diagnosis or to narrow the number of diagnostic possibilities sufficiently to enable pathological, biochemical or molecular studies to be used in the quest for a specific diagnosis. Equally important, a correct diagnosis is required for correct prognostication and parental counseling. This book has been written to assist in the postnatal diagnosis of fetal errors of skeletal development.

    Filaggrin proteins are expressed in several human tissues, including the skin, oral mucosa, conjunctivae, esophagus, cervix, and testes. While filaggrin guarantees both structural and functional normality of the human epidermis, its role in other tissues is largely unknown. Epidermal deficiency of filaggrin causes dry and scaly skin, but also strongly increases the risk of skin diseases, in particular ichthyosis vulgaris and atopic dermatitis. Importantly, the risk of related asthma, hay fever, and food allergy is also increased although filaggrin is not expressed in the airways and gastrointestinal tract. Common FLG mutations, leading to reduced filaggrin expression, have mainly been identified in Europeans and Asians, reaching a prevalence of 5-10%. Even in the absence of atopic dermatitis, the skin of individuals with FLG mutations differs fundamentally from normal skin, for example by generating more vitamin D and allowing chemicals and allergens to more widely penetrate across the stratum corneum. This textbook provides comprehensive and detailed coverage of the effects of filaggrin and filaggrin gene (FLG) mutations in health and disease (cutaneous and non-cutaneous) and also discusses the basic science, epidemiology, management, and future research areas. It will be of value to scientists and clinicians from different specialties.

    A brilliant young transplant surgeon brings moral intensity and narrative drama to the most powerful and vexing questions of medicine and the human condition. When Chen began medical school, she dreamed of saving lives--what she did not count on was how much death would be a part of her work. Almost immediately, Chen found herself wrestling with medicine's most profound paradox, that a profession premised on caring for the ill also systematically depersonalizes dying. Over the course of her education, training, and practice, she grappled at strikingly close range with the problem of mortality, struggling to reconcile the lessons of her training with her innate knowledge of shared humanity, and to separate her ideas about healing from her fierce desire to cure. Her rumination on how doctors negotiate the ineluctable fact of death becomes, in the end, a provocative questioning of how we should live.--From publisher description.

    "The goal of this Forum on Health and National Security was to address financial stress in the lives of servicemembers and identify knowledge gaps and opportunities for gaining new knowledge that can lead to new and improved intervention programs. Financial stress directly and indirectly affects servicemembers' mental and behavioral health as well as servicemember and family functioning. Understanding financial stress can aid in developing effective programs to mitigate this stress and help servicemembers and families in need. The Forum reviewed the complexity of defining financial stress and the interplay of financial stress in the "web" of life stressors that impact servicemembers and their families. The Forum brought together military and civilian leaders and scientists with expertise in risk and resilience, behavioral health, economics, models of stress behavior, and suicide to address the financial challenges faced by servicemembers and their families. Participants were challenged to develop new perspectives by synthesizing knowledge across diverse disciplines to better understand the complex issues of financial stress and associated life stressors, and risk and resilience factors moderating this stress. The Forum attendees also reviewed critical literature assembled from detailed searches, contributions by attendees as well as case studies and illustrations of the interactions of financial stress with life stressors and events. The Forum succeeded in identifying gaps in our knowledge and research recommendations to better understand financial stress and inform programmatic interventions for military servicemembers and their families."--Preface.

    This book provides a detailed update on all aspects of fine-needle aspiration cytology of breast lesions. It will serve readers as an up-to-date reference and atlas on both new entities in breast pathology, including borderline lesions such as flat epithelial atypia, and the classic benign and malignant lesions. Throughout, emphasis is placed on the characteristic diagnostic features as well as the common pitfalls faced by cytologists. As cytologic features can be highly variable, corresponding cytology and histology images are displayed together, enabling readers to gain a good understanding of the morphologic features of various lesions. Core-needle biopsy and fine-needle aspiration cytology are compared in depth, with attention to their relative strengths and weaknesses and indications. In addition, the impact of molecular classification of breast cancers on cytologic diagnosis is explored, and the use of molecular techniques in diagnostic cytology is discussed.

    "The scope of Fischer's Mastery of Surgery, Sixth Edition, is consistent with the broad training of a general surgeon, providing extensive coverage of vascular surgery as well as of common thoracic, breast, esophageal, endocrine, colorectal, gastric, pancreatic, liver, and biliary procedures. Each procedural chapter reviews the essentials of diagnosis, anatomy, and pre-operative planning, but focuses most heavily on step-by-step depictions and descriptions of procedures. Each chapter concludes, as is traditional for this classic text, with an editorial commentary which strives to put the chapter in a broad context and provide helpful critiques of the most recent literature. The sixth edition will include a dozen new chapters, including endovascular treatment of varicose veins, fasciotomy, and thoracic aortic transaction. The vascular section has been completely reorganized and will incorporate both open and endovascular procedures. For the first time, the sixth edition is in full color."--Provided by publisher.

    Fish Hearing and Bioacoustics is an anthology of review papers that were presented at a special symposium to honor Arthur Popper and Richard Fay on May 25th 2013 at the Mote Marine Laboratory in Sarasota, FL. The research presentations at this conference spanned the range of disciplines covered by Fay and Popper during their long and productive careers. The book includes the following thematic areas for the papers in this special volume: morphology and anatomy of the inner ear and lateral line systems; physiology of inner ear, lateral line, and central auditory systems; acoustically mediated behavior, including communication and sound localization; and environmental influences on fish hearing and bioacoustics, including anthropogenic effects of noise on fishes. Each chapter reviews and summarizes the past studies of particular area that will lead the reader up to the current work presented at the symposium. In addition, each chapters includes a perspective of how Arthur Popper and Richard Fay have influenced their particular area of fish bio acoustic research. Each manuscript also includes a hypotheses for future studies. These hypotheses will provide a springboard for future work in each field.

    Here the author, a physician and reporter provides a landmark investigation of patient deaths at a New Orleans hospital ravaged by Hurricane Katrina, and a suspenseful portrayal of the quest for truth and justice. She reconstructs 5 days at Memorial Medical Center and draws the reader into the lives of those who struggled mightily to survive and to maintain life amid chaos. After Katrina struck and the floodwaters rose, the power failed, and the heat climbed, exhausted caregivers chose to designate certain patients last for rescue. Months later, several health professionals faced criminal allegations that they deliberately injected numerous patients with drugs to hasten their deaths. She unspools the mystery of what happened in those days, of a hospital fighting for its life and into a conversation about the most terrifying form of health care rationing. In this book, she exposes the hidden dilemmas of end-of-life care and reveals just how ill-prepared we are in America for the impact of large-scale disasters, and how we can do better.

    More and more dietary supplements contain flavonoids. These products are typically viewed as food rather than drug products by regulatory agencies and therefore not subjected to rigorous clinical trials before they are marketed to the general public. As a result, the use of flavonoid-containing supplements presents a potential public health risk. From discovery to therapeutic application, this book is a comprehensive guide to both achiral and chiral flavonoids, enabling researchers to perform essential preclinical and clinical pharmacokinetics studies in order to ensure the efficacy of flavonoids marketed for therapeutic use. Moreover, the book examines the safety and toxicology of flavonoids as well as flavonoid-drug interactions. With contributions from a multidisciplinary team of leading researchers, Flavonoids Pharmacokinetics reviews and synthesizes the most recent research findings and results from preclinical and clinical studies. The book begins with a comprehensive overview of polyphenols and flavonoids. Next, the book covers: methods of analysis of achiral flavonoids. Preclinical pharmacokinetic of flavonoids. Toxicology and safety of flavonoids. Methods of analysis for chiral flavonoids. Clinical pharmacokinetics of flavonoids Flavonoids and drug interactions Throughout the book, the authors provide examples that demonstrate the use of pharmacokinetics concepts during the preclinical and clinical drug development process. Flavonoid Pharmacokinetics is written for pharmaceutical, food, and nutritional scientists and students, offering the tools they need to thoroughly analyze and test flavonoids and flavonoid-containing supplements to ensure their safety and efficacy.

    This chart adapts Nightingale's pioneering area charts (comparing preventible with non-preventible deaths) to a new issue: climate change. The areas of the wedges and the numbers beside them represent carbon dioxide emissions plus equivalent measures for the other greenhouse gases, measured in megatonnes. The angle represents the total population, the radius per capita emissions. Thus it is easy to see that emissions by China are high (because of its large population) but per capita are much lower than for the United States, Canada and Europe (see their long radii). Emissions data (2006) from the Energy Information Administration, population (2007) from the Population Reference Bureau. Chart prepared by Lynn McDonald and Patricia Warwick. Front cover image: This iconic composite portrait was painted by Jerry Barrett, reproduced courtesy of the National Portrait Gallery. The scene is fictional, depicting people who served in different places and at different times in the war. This modified clock chart uses the same data as in the classic two area charts (back cover). The wedges represent mortality, measured from the centre: blue for preventible diseases, grey-brown for other diseases and pink for wounds. --Book Jacket.

    Social Change in India shows the shift of focus that occurred during Florence Nightingale's more than forty years of work on public health in India. While the focus in the preceding volume, Health in India, was top-down reform, notably in the Royal Commission on the Sanitary State of the Army in India, this book documents concrete proposals for self-government, especially at the municipal level, and the encouragement of leading Indian nationals themselves. Famine and related epidemics continue to be issues, demonstrating the need for public works like irrigation and for greater self-help meas.

    Magnetic drug targeting (MDT) is a noninvasive medical technique that has been proposed for treating diseases that are localized in the body. Currently, drugs meant to treat such conditions are inefficient and often damage healthy tissue because they spread throughout the blood stream. MDT combats this problem by steering the majority of the medicine to the right location in the body. An ideal MDT treatment would involve chemically binding the drug to magnetic particles, injecting the particles into the bloodstream, magnetically steering them through the arterial network, and trapping them near the diseased area so the drug they carry has time to diffuse into the surrounding tissue. There is still much to learn about how to manufacture drug-coated magnetic particles, image these particles in vivo, and control them using magnetic fields. This thesis focuses on understanding the dynamics of magnetic particles moving through the blood stream. A preliminary simulation and experiment were performed to determine realistic ranges of particle, flow, and magnetic field parameters within which MDT could work. Based on the results, an expanded simulation was performed and used to predict optimal conditions for successful magnetic drug targeting. The preliminary simulation and experiment evaluated the feasibility of stopping magnetic particles in a straight tube flow with conditions similar to those in a large artery. It was found that unrealistically high magnetic field gradients were needed to control particles small enough to safely inject into the circulatory system because the fluid drag force on the particles was too large to overcome with magnetic force. Composite spheres, made of micron-sized magnetic particles embedded in agarose (which could potentially be broken up in vivo), were much easier to control magnetically in the same setup. In order to develop an understanding of the dynamics of a cluster of small magnetic particles moving through the circulatory system, an expanded simulation was developed to track the motion of such a cluster in an artery-like flow. The hope was that the presence of an extended cloud of particles would reduce the average drag force per particle and thus small particles would be easier to control magnetically. Three unclosed forces needed to be modeled for this simulation. First, the viscous force on the particles was computed by formulating a non-Newtonian model for blood. Extensive simulations showed that non-Newtonian arterial flows differed significantly from Newtonian ones even in large arteries. Second, the interparticle magnetic force was calculated by developing a numerical method that summed magnetic interactions between grid cells instead of individual particle pairs. This approach is much more efficient than summing the forces for all particle pairs and is accurate as long as the grid is well-resolved and the local gradients of magnetic particle concentration are nonzero. Finally, the dispersion coefficient of the particles caused by their interactions with blood cells was computed by performing a separate Monte Carlo simulation of particles moving through a field of red blood cells with variable shear rate, hematocrit, and particle terminal velocity. The results of the expanded simulation showed that it was possible, but not easy, to slow down a particle cluster moving through a straight artery and somewhat easier to steer a particle cluster down one branch of an arterial bifurcation. In both cases, diffusion prevented successful control of the particle cluster long-term.

    The number of reports per year on single-molecule imaging experiments has grown roughly exponentially since the first successful efforts to optically detect a single molecule were completed over two decades ago. Single-molecule spectroscopy has developed into a field that includes a wealth of experiments at room temperature and inside living cells. The fast growth of single-molecule biophysics has resulted from its benefits in probing heterogeneous populations, one molecule at a time, as well as from advances in microscopes and detectors. There is a need for new fluorophores that can be used for single-molecule imaging in biological media, because imaging in cells and in organisms require emitters that are bright and photostable, red-shifted to avoid pumping cellular autofluorescence, and chemically and photophysically tunable. To this end, we have designed and characterized fluorescent probes based on a class of nonlinear-optical chromophores termed DCDHFs. This dissertation describes various physical and optical studies on these emitters, from sensing local environment to photoactivation. Chapter 1 is a general introduction to fluorescence and single-molecule spectroscopy and imaging. Single-molecule experiments in living cells are discussed and probes used for such experiments are summarized and compared. Chapter 2 explores the basic photophysics of the DCDHF fluorophores and some general methods of measuring relevant spectroscopic parameters, including photostability. Chapter 3 discusses the various approaches we have taken to modify particular properties by changing the fluorophore's structure. We have redesigned the DCDHF fluorophore into a photoactivatable fluorogen -- a chromophore that is nonfluorescent until converted to a fluorescent form using light -- described in Chapter 4. Finally, a different, chemical route to fluorescence activation is presented in Chapter 5. The remainder of the Dissertation is the Appendix and a full Bibliography. The Appendix includes a table of photophysical parameter for DCDHF fluorophore, various protocols used in the experiments discussed, MatLab codes, and NMR spectra.

    Since functional MRI (fMRI) and the basic method of BOLD imaging were introduced in 1993 by Seiji Ogawa, fMRI has evolved into an invaluable clinical tool for routine brain imaging, and there have been substantial improvements in both the imaging technique itself and the associated statistical analysis. This book provides a state of the art overview of fMRI and its use in clinical practice. Experts in the field share their knowledge and explain how to overcome diverse potential technical barriers and problems. Starting from the very basics on the origin of the BOLD signal, the book covers technical issues, anatomical landmarks, the full range of clinical applications, methods of statistical analysis, and special issues in various clinical fields. Comparisons are made with other brain mapping techniques, such as DTI, PET, TMS, EEG, and MEG, and their combined use with fMRI is also discussed. Since the first edition, original chapters have been updated and new chapters added, covering both novel aspects of analysis and further important clinical applications.

    Folding for the Synapse addresses the current view on how protein folding and misfolding, controlled by molecular chaperones, contribute to synapse function and dysfunction. Molecular chaperones have been studied in relation to de novo protein folding, but there is increasing awareness that chaperone function is required for the regulation of protein dynamics when functioning physiologically as an isolated moiety or part of a protein complex. This book will introduce both important concepts of folding machineries and give examples of the biological relevance of further chaperone functions.

    This dissertation examines the factors that influence fomite-mediated (e.g., indirect contact) transmission of viral gastrointestinal and respiratory illness. Specifically, the dissertation investigates virus transfer between surfaces and virus recovery from surfaces, models human-fomites interactions to estimate exposure and infection risk, and elucidates causal links between microbial contamination and illness in child care centers. Indirect contact transmission refers to person-to-person transmission of disease via an intermediate fomite (e.g., inanimate object acting as a carrier of infectious disease). The role of indirect contact in disease spread is poorly understood in part because the transmission route of viral pathogens is often difficult to determine. Transmission of respiratory and gastrointestinal viruses can occur through multiple routes (e.g., direct contact, indirect contact, airborne, and common vehicle), and the relative contribution of each route to total disease burden is unclear. The first study in this dissertation examines virus transfer between skin and surfaces, a necessary step in fomite-mediated transmission of viral disease. In the study, transfer of virus between fingerpads and fomites is explored in a laboratory setting. Bacteriophage (fr, MS2, and PHIX174) are used as proxies for pathogenic virus, and over 650 unique transfer events are collected from 20 different volunteers. The study concludes that approximately one quarter (23%) of recoverable virus is readily transferred from a contaminated surface (e.g., a fomite) to an uncontaminated surface (e.g., a finger) on contact. Using the large data set, the direction of transfer (from fingerpads-to-fomite or fomite-to-fingerpad) and virus species are demonstrated to both significantly influence the fraction of virus transferred by approximately 2-5%. To investigate the relative importance of factors contributing to fomite-mediated transmission, a child's risk of illness from exposure to a contaminated fomite is modeled. Specifically, the model estimates a child's exposure to rotavirus using a stochastic-mechanistic framework. Simulations of a child's contacts with the fomite include intermittent fomite-mouth, hand-mouth, and hand-fomite contacts based on activities of a typical child under six years of age. In addition to frequency of contact data, parameters estimated for use in the model include virus concentration on surface; virus inactivation rates on hands and the fomite; virus transfer between hands, fomite, and the child's mouth; and the surface area of objects and hands in contact. From the model, we conclude that a child's median ingested dose from interacting with a rotavirus-contaminated ball ranges from 2 to 1,000 virus over a period of one hour, with a median value of 42 virus. These results were heavily influenced by selected values of model parameters, most notably, the concentration of rotavirus on fomite, frequency of fomite-mouth contacts, frequency of hand-mouth contacts, and virus transferred from fomite to mouth. The model demonstrated that mouthing of fomite is the primary exposure route, with hand mouthing contributions accounting for less than one-fifth of the child's dose over the first 10 minutes of interaction. Based on the findings from the model that concentration of virus on a fomite influences a child's risk of illness, we investigate methods to recover virus from fomites. In a literature review and subsequent meta analysis, we demonstrate that the outcome currently used to describe virus contamination, positivity rate, is biased by the authors' selected sampling methods. We follow up, in the laboratory, with a comparison of the identified methods and demonstrate that polyester-tipped swabs prewetted in 1/4-strength Ringer's solution or saline solution is the most efficient sampling method for virus recovery tested. The recommended method is compatible with plaque assay and quantitative reverse-transcription polymerase chain reaction, two techniques used to quantify virus. The link between hand / fomite contamination and infection risk was explored in a field study at two child care centers over four months. Both respiratory and gastrointestinal disease incidence were tracked daily, while hand and environmental surface contamination were monitored weekly between February 2009 and June 2009. Microbial contamination was determined using quantitative densities of fecal indicator bacteria (e.g. Escherichia coli, enterococci, and fecal coliform) on hands and fomites as well as presence/absence of viral pathogens (e.g. enterovirus and norovirus). Health was monitored daily by childcare staff, who tracked absences, illness-related absences, and symptomatic respiratory and gastrointestinal illness. The resultant data suggests that increases in microbial contamination led to increases in symptomatic respiratory illness four to six days later, in agreement with typical incubation periods for respiratory illness. Similarly, respiratory illness led to increases in microbial contamination on hands during presentation of symptoms, and on fomites in the following three days.

    "This volume discusses the effects of naturally occurring and process-generated pro-oxidants and antioxidants on various aspects of food quality. It emphasizes the chemical nature and functional properties of these compounds and their interactions with other food components in storage and processing, specifically focusing on the sensory quality, nutritional value, health promoting activity, and safety aspects of foods. It demonstrates the analysis of pro-oxidants and antioxidants in foods, their mechanism and activity, their chemistry and biochemistry, and the practical considerations of healthy food production and marketing"-- Provided by publisher.

    While there is not one global definition of the term 'food poverty,' the evidence from the chapters in this book suggest food poverty can be seen from three perspectives: 1) the causes and constraints facing both individuals, households, communities and policy makers, 2) constrained choices or the 'lived experience' and 3) the health impacts or outcomes. As a working definition of food poverty, this approach suggests that where constraints are such that it is not possible for individuals or households to consume a nutritionally adequate diet, they could be considered to be in food poverty. The modern food system has introduced new complexities to food insecurity with the growth of micro-nutrient inequalities. As a result of growing levels of poverty and inequality, hunger and obesity are not being faced by two different groups, but often by the same group. While the developed world faces a problem with overconsumption and chronic diseases, the developing world is addressing the double burden of hunger and over-consumption. Even in the developed world, nation states are facing the rise of modern malnutrition, which includes both over-consumption and the re-emergence of hunger: over-consumption combined with austerity. The volume undertakes a critical examination of food poverty and food security by addressing topics such as tensions over the role of the state, the movement towards rights and responsibilities around food, and the rising tide of food poverty. Auth ors also cover possible solutions at both national and city state levels. The editors conclude with a chapter that draws together the issues and locates solutions within a food policy framework of the total food system. These studies help reveal the complexities of food insecurity within a global context, with the goal of clarifying taken for granted assumptions in present discourses.

    The cyclic ovary can be seen as a site of tissue damage, repair and precisely controlled tissue homeostasis, as long ovulation and luteolysis can be compared with acute and chronic inflammation. Innate immunity appears to be a powerful force in the endocrine system, representing a novel concept. In this monograph, remarkable evidence is given for the immune-privileged ovary being an implant on the chicken chorioallantoic membrane with an areactive mesenchyme. Mild to severe tissue damages due to follicular atresia, follicular rupture, or intraovarian oocyte release do no lasting harm. The most exciting part relates to the analysis of cytokeratin-positive (CK<sup>+</sup>) cells, comparing the fate mapping of this cell type from the fetal ovary to the adult organ. Findings on toll-like receptor 4 regulation and interferon-gamma-dependent positive effects indicate that CK<sup>+</sup> cells from human preovulatory follicles and bovine corpora lutea have similarities with nonlymphoid dendritic cells, a discovery that has the makings of a top story in basic and clinical research on the ovary.

    Carollia perspicillata, a tropical species, is the only bat that has essentially been domesticated and can be maintained and propagated in a research environment utilizing simple, inexpensive husbandry procedures. This atlas contains the first quality treatment of a bat species, and is unique in its use of NeuN staining. The NeuN preparations used selectively stain neurons in a sharp black coloration that fills not only the cell body but extends a short distance along the proximal dendrites. Thus, as distinct from the traditional nissl stains, the NeuN generates a quasi Golgi-like image of the neurons, providing a more intimate view of the neurons than can be obtained from nissl staining. In addition, the background is essentially white, facilitating high-contrast photography and allowing for gray-tone illustration without any loss of information. The NeuN procedure does not stain axons, and since it does not stain glial cells or their nuclei, the noise ordinarily generated in nissl stains by the presence of glial cells among the neurons and in the white matter is entirely eliminated. The Forebrain Atlas of the Short-tailed Fruit Bat also includes nissl stained sections for comparison. Since it is known that NeuN is not expressed in certain neurons, such as Purkinje cells, olfactory bulb mitral cells, and the cells of the paraventricular and supraoptic nuclei, the nissl stained sections are also included to provide complementary views of such structures.

    "Nurse leaders exist at every level--from the bedside to the boardroom. But these days, nurse leaders and managers face major changes in health care delivery models that pressure them to improve patient care but at the same time improve efficiency and lower costs. Add to this the demand to provide nursing education and improve retentions, and the pressure can mount and create additional problems for your organization. The solution? Fostering Nurse-Led Care--from three of Massachusettes General Hospital's top nurse executives--tells nurse leaders and care providers the secrets of the professional practice model that has improved system outcomes and increased patient, family, and staff satisfaction for nearly 20 years. The book provides details including developing, implementing, and evaluating a professional practice environment; optimizing quality standards; implementing patient safety measurements and balancing cost with quality; building an effective learning environment; and resolving conflicts and ethical dilemmas"--Page 4 of cover.

    "Originally, the global exporting of psychology was considered a means of bringing science and modernism to underdeveloped parts of the world. In response, indigenous psychology has emerged as an alternative to the individual-focused theories and therapies of Western cultures, as well as a critique of the idea that the tenets of Western thought apply to all nations. The first full-length work analyzing its Confucian roots, Foundations of Chinese Psychology strips away the myths and assumptions that can impede reliable scholarship while supplying the context necessary for decoding complex, longstanding traditions of behavior. The author re-interprets the widely held idea of collectivism (which is often defined as the absence of individualism) in favor of the more descriptive relationism, using the structure of Confucian ethics as a lens for testing theories and understanding findings on Chinese social relationships. Elaborating on key concepts such as guanxi (personal connection) and face (social standing), the book offers both a specific paradigm for studying non-Western cultures and a model for indigenous psychologies worldwide. Included in the coverage: The Confucian model of mind and the way of humanity; Confucian relationalism and social exchange; Life goals and achievement motivation in Confucian society; Ethics, morality, and the concept of face; Guanxi and organizational behavior. Indigenous Chinese models of conflict resolution. Foundations of Chinese Psychology is a landmark volume of immediate interest to researchers, particularly members of the American Psychological Association, the Asian Association of Indigenous and Cultural Psychology, the International Academy of Intercultural Research, and similar organizations."--Publisher's website.

    "WHO's third decade was characterized by a sense of optimism, perhaps naive in retrospect. There was a feeling that progress was possible, not only in health, but in social and economic ways to improve individual and collective well-being. This optimism was reflected in the approval by the Thirtieth World Health Assembly in May 1977 of resolution WHA30.43, which stated that WHO's main social target for the coming decades should be for all citizens of the world to attain by the year 2000 a level of health to enable them to lead socially and economically productive lives."--Introduction, p. vii.

    Fractal analysis is useful in digital image processing for the characterization of shape roughness and gray-scale texture or complexity. Breast masses present shape and gray-scale characteristics in mammograms that vary between benign masses and malignant tumors. This book demonstrates the use of fractal analysis to classify breast masses as benign masses or malignant tumors based on the irregularity exhibited in their contours and the gray-scale variability exhibited in their mammographic images. A few different approaches are described to estimate the fractal dimension (FD) of the contour of a mass, including the ruler method, box-counting method, and the power spectral analysis (PSA) method. Procedures are also described for the estimation of the FD of the gray-scale image of a mass using the blanket method and the PSA method.

    Residents and junior doctors on rotation are under constant pressure to have accurate and up-to-date information available to them. This is never more important than when on rotation in the Emergency Room. Junior doctors often lack experience in orthopaedics making the recognition and accurate identification of fractures and their treatment a challenging task.The second edition of this comprehensive handbook contains a wealth of illustrations and explanatory text, which is organized into a concise repository of information on fractures according to the most widely used classification systems. The classification systems covered include AO and OTA systems. This allows readers the opportunity to make a correct diagnosis using the appropriate criteria, while simplifying the planning of further management and ensuring that communication with experienced staff is more effective.

    According to reports in the literature, despite the severe disruption of carpal anatomy, fracture-dislocations of the wrist are missed on clinical and radiographic examination in a high percentage of cases. Orthopedic surgeons' lack of familiarity with these injuries is one of the factors contributing to failed or delayed diagnosis. This richly illustrated book covers all types of wrist dislocation and fracture-dislocation. Detailed information is provided on anatomy and biomechanics, while terminology and classification of injuries are explained. Treatment options are thoroughly analysed, with special emphasis on surgical treatment, which is presented step by step. All of the figures -- radiological and surgical -- relate to patients treated by the author himself. Most of the cases are from the Red Cross Hospital of Athens that admits many patients with such injuries, in part through referral from other centres due to the author's acknowledged expertise in the field. This volume, with its highly informative and up-to-date chapters and reviews, and a wealth of color figures, will be of great practical value for clinicians and residents in orthopedic surgery, who assist them in daily decision making.

    The concept of frailty offers a convenient way to introduce unobserved heterogeneity and associations into models for survival data. In its simplest form, frailty is an unobserved random proportionality factor that modifies the hazard function of an individual or a group of related individuals. Frailty Models in Survival Analysis presents a comprehensive overview of the fundamental approaches in the area of frailty models. The book extensively explores how univariate frailty models can represent unobserved heterogeneity. It also emphasizes correlated frailty models as extensions of univariate and shared frailty models. The author analyzes similarities and differences between frailty and copula models; discusses problems related to frailty models, such as tests for homogeneity; and describes parametric and semiparametric models using both frequentist and Bayesian approaches. He also shows how to apply the models to real data using the statistical packages of R, SAS, and Stata. The appendix provides the technical mathematical results used throughout. Written in nontechnical terms accessible to nonspecialists, this book explains the basic ideas in frailty modeling and statistical techniques, with a focus on real-world data application and interpretation of the results. By applying several models to the same data, it allows for the comparison of their advantages and limitations under varying model assumptions. The book also employs simulations to analyze the finite sample size performance of the models.--From the publisher's website.

    Committee on Educating Health Professionals to Address the Social Determinants of Health, Board on Global Health, Institute of Medicine, National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine.
    "The World Health Organization defines the social determinants of health as "the conditions in which people are born, grow, work, live, and age, and the wider set of forces and systems shaping the conditions of daily life." These forces and systems include economic policies, development agendas, cultural and social norms, social policies, and political systems. In an era of pronounced human migration, changing demographics, and growing financial gaps between rich and poor, a fundamental understanding of how the conditions and circumstances in which individuals and populations exist affect mental and physical health is imperative. Educating health professionals about the social determinants of health generates awareness among those professionals about the potential root causes of ill health and the importance of addressing them in and with communities, contributing to more effective strategies for improving health and health care for underserved individuals, communities, and populations. Recently, the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine convened a workshop to develop a high-level framework for such health professional education. A Framework for Educating Health Professionals to Address the Social Determinants of Health also puts forth a conceptual model for the framework's use with the goal of helping stakeholder groups envision ways in which organizations, education, and communities can come together to address health inequalities"--Publisher's description.

    The survival of a bacterial pathogen within a host depends upon its ability to outmaneuver the host immune response. Thus mutant pathogens provide a useful tool for dissecting host-pathogen relationships as the strategies the microbe has evolved to counteract immunity reveal a host's immune mechanisms. In this study, we examined the pathogen Francisella tularensis subspecies novicida and identified new bacterial virulence factors that interact with different parts of the Drosophila melanogaster innate immune system. We performed a genome-wide screen to identify F. novicida genes required for growth and survival within the fly and identified a set of 149 negatively selected mutants. Among these, we identified a class of genes including the transcription factor oxyR, and the DNA repair proteins uvrB, recB, and ruvC that help F novicida resist oxidative stress. We determined that these bacterial genes are virulence factors that allow F. novicida to counteract the fly melanization immune response. We then performed a second in vivo screen to identify an additional subset of bacterial genes that interact specifically with the imd signaling pathway. Most of these mutants have decreased resistance to the antimicrobial peptide polymyxin B. Characterization of a mutation in the putative transglutaminase FTN_0989 produced a curious result that could not easily be explained using known Drosophila immune responses. By using an unbiased genetic screen, these studies provide a new view of the Drosophila immune response from the perspective of a pathogen. We show that two branches of the fly's immunity are important for fighting F. novicida infections in a model host: melanization and an imd-regulated immune response, and identify bacterial genes that specifically counteract these host responses. Our work suggests that there may be more to learn about the fly immune system as not all of the phenotypes we observe can be readily explained by its interactions with known immune responses.

    "In its early days, some saw psychology as a substitute for religion. Others regarded it as a new religion in its own right. What was less obvious to most observers--and far less obvious today--were the roots of Freud's work in the ancient mystical teachings of the Middle East. A unique analysis, Freud on Interpretation examines the inner workings of his thought process and the rich mine of knowledge that led him toward his theories and therapies. In the beliefs of ancient Egypt, with its sexually ambiguous dieties, and ancient Israel, with its Biblical accounts of madness and feigned madness, are found surprising sources of inspiration for such core Freudian concepts as free association, dream interpretation, the psychosexual stages, the libido, and the unconscious. Psychoanalyis here is seen in its early growth stages, fed and nurtured by philosophers, scientists, and fearless mind explorers; and Freud is boldly synthesizing modes of knowledge from an age when science and superstition were rarely separate. This compelling volume: Overviews the pre-Freudian history of psychology in the writings of Herbart, Morel, and Krafft-Ebing; Probes Freud's interest in ancient Egyptian creation myths and the Kabbala, and their influence on his work; Explores the paradoxes inherent in the interpretation of the mind; Offers unique insights into the origins of the Rorschach test; Considers the real meaning behind Freud's self-identification as a determinist; Includes a listing of Freud's library of titles on ancient Egypt; Freud on Interpretation is stimulating reading for clinical psychologists and those interested in the intellectual and professional development of the master psychiatrist."--Publisher's website.

    The recent development of three-dimensional imaging techniques has provided an enormous amount of information relevant to the clinical management of patients at low and high risk for coronary artery disease. However, while progress in each individual technique has been rapid, the correlation of findings obtained with radiology, nuclear medicine, and magnetic resonance imaging is still relatively neglected. In this book, qualified experts in cardiac imaging present the basic concepts of cardiac disease and imaging and compare the findings obtained in particular subspecialties with those acquired using other techniques. In this way the reader will learn how images and techniques can be integrated in clinical practice to the benefit of the patient. In addition, the issue is addressed of reducing the patient's exposure to ionizing radiation through appropriate multimodality integration. Physicians ranging from cardiac surgeons to internal medicine specialists and even public health administrators will find this book invaluable in understanding the role of hybrid cardiac imaging.

    L-type voltage-gated calcium channels (LTCs) play a key role in neuronal development by activating signalling pathways that regulate neuronal gene expression and morphology. A point mutation in the LTC CaV1.2, which blocks voltage-dependent inactivation (VDI), causes autism in Timothy Syndrome (TS) patients. While it is known how VDI influences the current through LTCs, it is not known how alterations in VDI affect the signaling function of CaV1.2 in neurons and ultimately cause developmental defects that lead to autism. Here I show that expression of CaV1.2 channels containing the TS mutation (TS-CaV1.2) inhibits CRE-dependent transcription and causes dendrite retraction and reduced dendrite branching in cortical neurons. I found that expression of TS-CaV1.2 leads to increased calcium influx in neurons and that this increase in intracellular calcium concentrations was in part responsible for the ability of TS-CaV1.2 channels to inhibit CREB. Surprisingly, however, I found that TS-CaV1.2 causes dendritic retraction independently of Ca2+ influx through the channel suggesting that the voltage-dependent conformational changes associated with VDI play an important and unexpected role in CaV1.2 signalling. In addition, I found that TS-CaV1.2 causes dendrite retraction by activating the RhoA signalling pathway. I found that changes in the interaction of the small GTP-binding protein Gem with the channel beta subunit play a critical role in mediating the activation of RhoA by TS-CaV1.2. These results provide new insight into how LTCs are coupled to cytoskeletal signalling pathways in neurons and shed light on the molecular mechanisms underlying the generation of TS and other Autism Spectrum Disorders.

    "This both accessible and exhaustive book will help to improve modeling of attention and to inspire innovations in industry. It introduces the study of attention and focuses on attention modeling, addressing such themes as saliency models, signal detection and different types of signals, as well as real-life applications. The book is truly multi-disciplinary, collating work from psychology, neuroscience, engineering and computer science, amongst other disciplines. What is attention? We all pay attention every single moment of our lives. Attention is how the brain selects and prioritizes information. The study of attention has become incredibly complex and divided: this timely volume assists the reader by drawing together work on the computational aspects of attention from across the disciplines. Those working in the field as engineers will benefit from this book's introduction to the psychological and biological approaches to attention, and neuroscientists can learn about engineering work on attention. The work features practical reviews and chapters that are quick and easy to read, as well as chapters which present deeper, more complex knowledge. Everyone whose work relates to human perception, to image, audio and video processing will find something of value in this book, from students to researchers and those in industry"--Provided by publisher.

    "The traditional problem of the poor presentability as well as diagnostic and therapeutic practicability of individual patient care is still unresolved. The present book aims at leading the reader (cancer researchers, pharmacologists, biologists) away-in a scientifically accessible manner-from the daily conflicts between theory and practice and between the generalized and individual tumor patient, so that more personalized diagnostic and therapeutic strategies can be developed for controlling metastatic tumor disease: First, recording the systems concept of tumor biology based on rather different sciences (biochemistry, cell biology, and medical oncology) including their potential contribution to communication, then, giving reductionistically derived systems features an internal communicative context (formal-pragmatic communication theory), and finally, binding the systems features to (tumor-immanent) evolutionary processes (modularity of biochemical and cellular processes, rationalization of biologic functions)"--Back cover.

    Myosins are a superfamily of molecular motors that couple the chemical energy derived form adenosine triphosphate (ATP) hydrolysis to precise mechanical movements along the filamentous cytoskeletal protein actin. There exist more than 20 distinct classes of myosins within this superfamily, and their specific biophysical and biochemical properties likely allow them to function accordingly in vivo. My research has focused on understanding the how the structural and kinetic characteristics of a particular myosin, myosin VI, relate to its proposed trafficking and tethering functions. In the first section of this dissertation, I perform single molecule studies on the contribution of an unexpected structural domain in the myosin VI tail to the efficiency of processive stepping, especially against external forces. I additionally use optical trapping to examine the load-dependent kinetics of the motor in the second section, and propose that external load in vivo likely regulates myosin VI's dual functions as cellular transporter and cytoskeletal anchor. The specific cellular cargoes as well as oligomerization states of different myosins are defined by their tail domain, which is the most divergent structural region among myosin classes. Myosin VI, shown to be monomeric when purified in its native form, likely dimerizes upon cargo binding. As most in vitro work on myosin VI so far have been performed on a truncated, artificially forced myosin VI dimer, I discuss in the third section steps taken toward achieving a more native, biochemically reconstituted full-length myosin VI molecule bound to its bona fide cargo. Having gained a better understanding of the biophysics, kinetics and biochemistry of myosin at the single molecule level, I moved on to studying myosin function at the cellular level. In the forth section of this dissertation, I examine the effects of a familial hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (FHC) mutation, R403Q in cardiac myosin, on the contractile function of single mouse cardiomyocytes. I find that the functional effects of the R403Q mutation in the diseased FHC heart are manifest at the level of cardiomyocytes as well, suggesting that these effects are cell autonomous. From these studies, we can better appreciate the structural and kinetic properties of myosin VI that make it uniquely suited for its functions. This knowledge is also beneficial in aiding the understanding of other molecular motors that may employ similar mechanisms. We are now also aware of the cell-autonomy of particular dysfunctions exhibited by diseased R403Q FHC hearts, and are better poised to understand the complex disorder as a whole.

    Photonic nanocavities are wavelength-scale dielectric structures that possess remarkable properties due to their intrinsic small sizes and high quality factors. Simply by modifying the device materials and optical properties, one can realize nanocavities for diverse applications ranging from lasers to quantum optics and even biosensing. In this dissertation work, two drastically different functions of nanocavities are presented, both of which make them more practical for real-world adoption. The first part of this dissertation will focus on engineered optical devices for interconnect applications in computing and communications. We have shown that heavily doped germanium on silicon can be used as a CMOS-compatible light source with peak emission at 1.5 microns. Microdisk resonators were fabricated and shown to sustain cavity resonances through both photoluminescence (PL) and electroluminescence (EL) measurements. To access these microresonators, we developed a coupling process using a tapered optical fiber and further showed the versatility of these fibers by using them to tune the cavity wavelength. High performance optical sources were then demonstrated in a gallium arsenide platform containing embedded quantum dots (QDs). We have developed a new platform for efficiently driving photonic crystal (PC) cavities using a lithographically defined, lateral p-i-n junction. With our lateral junction we have demonstrated a world record low threshold laser with a threshold power of only 208 nW at 50K. At room temperature we find that these same devices behave as ultra-fast light-emitting diodes which can be directly modulated at up to 10 GHz with operational energies below 1 fJ/bit. Additional active photonic devices incorporating a lateral junction such as electro-optic modulators and photodetectors were also created using this same platform. The second part of this dissertation describes the demonstration of a whole new class of tools geared towards biomedical photonics that marry PC cavities to the tips of optical fibers. The form factor of the optical fiber lends itself to operation of the tool in exotic environments never before accessible to a nanocavity. Fiber-cavity hybrid devices were constructed using a custom epoxy-based assembly procedure which successfully relocates the small semiconductor templates containing nanocavities. The completed device, called a fiberPC, was then used as a sensor to detect gold nanoparticles through optical readout. We have used our probes to interrogate single human prostate cells with internalized PC cavities showing, for the first time, resonant photonic modes inside biological cells. The beams can be loaded in cells and tracked for days at a time, with cells undergoing regular division and migration. Furthermore, we present in vitro label-free protein sensing with our probes as a path towards quantitative, real-time biomarker detection in single cells. The developed tool may find future applications in drug screening, cancer detection, and fundamental cell biology.

    Embryonic stem cells (ESCs) hold great therapeutic potential, but the regulation of their self-renewal and pluripotency is still not fully understood. Furthermore, ESCs display many similarities to cancer cells, including rapid proliferation and tumorigenic potential, making it critical to understand the basic properties of these cells. The RB family, consisting of RB, p107, and p130, are critical regulators of functions such as cell cycle progression, apoptosis, and differentiation that must be tightly regulated throughout development. Here, we used loss and gain of function experiments to understand the role of the RB family in regulating key properties of ESCs. In hESCs, the RB family is critical for self-renewal and survival. hESCs overexpressing RB arrest in the cell cycle and undergo spontaneous differentiation and apoptosis. Loss of RB family function in hESCs results in decreased self-renewal ability and a loss of pluripotency, as these cells display a defect in their differentiation capacity. hESCs undergo a G2/M arrest and apoptosis through activation of the p53 pathway and the cell cycle inhibitor p21 upon loss of RB family function. In contrast to hESCs, mESCS triple knockout (TKO) for the RB family are largely normal. However, both mouse and human ESCs display genomic instability upon loss of RB family function, highlighting a key function that is conserved between both species. The RB family also regulates many functions that are critical for tumor suppression. We investigated whether RB retains its tumor suppressive ability in cancer cells by re-introducing RB into Rb-/-; p53-/- small cell lung cancer (SCLC) tumors cells. Re-introduction of RB resulted in decreased growth and an increase in differentiation, similar to that seen in hESCs. Thus, the RB pathway is an important regulator of self-renewal and differentiation in both hESCs and SCLC.

    This book is designed as an easy to read reference and practical guide to the management of combat extremity injuries, which account for a high percentage of the injuries sustained in recent and current conflicts. The surgical techniques appropriate to the full range of extremity injuries and some other frequent injuries, such as trauma to the spine and pelvis, are clearly described with the aid of helpful illustrations. In each chapter a bottom line up front approach is adopted, providing key messages first; a further important feature is the emphasis placed on case-based information and lessons learned from practice. Care has been taken to ensure that the advice provided is straightforward and in line with military clinical practice guidelines.

    "The development of effective preventive and therapeutic measures to control eating and body weight involves basic physiology as well as cognitive and social psychology. The potential of molecular genetics to illuminate brain-behavior relationships became apparent with the discovery of the leptin gene in 1994. At present, molecular methodologies are being integrated with other physiological approaches, resulting in a number of options from which effective therapeutic strategies may evolve. This book highlights this exciting juncture: Fifteen leading experts present brief descriptions of some of the latest developments of the physiology of eating and weight regulation, ranging from endocrine and neural controls to genetics and functional brain imaging. These Frontier chapters are preceded by a general overview that provides requisite background on the physiology of eating as well as a conceptual framework for the Frontier chapters."--Publisher's description.

    This SpringerBrief on Spx reviews the investigations that led to the discovery of Spx and its orthologs and ties together the results of various studies that have explored the function and control of spx in Gram-positive organisms. Spx of Bacillus subtilis has been extensively studied, but very little has been published about it. This book incorporates a number of studies that have been conducted in other Gram positive bacteria, which examined the role of Spx orthologs in stress response, bacterial development and virulence. The book contains an overview that will introduce the protein and its orthologous forms, its association with RNA polymerase, the species of Gram-positive bacteria in which it is found, and the conditions in which it is abundant and active. Spx is a member of a large group of proteins belonging to the ArsC/Spx protein family, so the review touches upon the bioinformatic support for the protein family composition and its meaning with regard to protein structure/function.

    Calcineurin is a Ca2+/calmodulin-dependent serine/threonine protein phosphatase conserved from yeast to mammals required for cell survival during environmental stress in yeast. It dephosphorylates several proteins located in different cellular compartments. Hph1 is a substrate of calcineurin that together with Hph2, its homolog, is also required for cellular adaptation to environmental stress. Hph1 and Hph2 are novel proteins of unknown function. Hph1 and Hph2 are tail-anchored integral ER-membrane proteins and have no identifiable homologs of in other organisms, except closely related yeast species. The goal of this work was to identify proteins that interact with Hph1 and Hph2 to help us identify their biological function. We show that Hph1 and Hph2 interact with the post-translational translocation machinery and are required for Vph1 stability, suggesting that they function in post-translational translocation at the ER. We have found several additional phenotypes for cells lacking HPH1 and HPH2 that overlap with the phenotypes observed for cells that have defects in vacuolar acidification. Hph1, but not Hph2, interacts with Vam6, a guanine-nucleotide-exchange factor, that regulates homotypic vacuolar fusion (through Ypt7) and TORC1 activation (through Gtr1). Interestingly, hph1[Delta] hph2[Delta] cells are resistant to rapamycin, further suggesting a role for these proteins in nutrient signaling. Structure-function analyses revealed that the coiled-coil motif is required for proper Hph1 localization and function, whereas the transmembrane domain is dispensable. This study has advanced our understanding of Hph1 and calcineurin function in regulating the cell's response to environmental stress and paves the way for a mechanistic understanding of Hph1 and Hph2 function in yeast.

    In both prokaryotic and eukaryotic organisms, the coordination of cell division with DNA replication, segregation, and repair is critical for ensuring that each daughter cell receives an intact copy of the genome. In Bacillus subtilis, DNA damage triggers the SOS response, which activates a host of repair pathways, as well as an inhibitor of cell division, YneA. The mechanism by which YneA inhibits cell division and the processes involved in shutting off YneA activity remain unclear. In this work, we show that YneA is induced under a variety of DNA stress conditions, including replication initiation blocks. We observed that YneA is exported, does not stably associate with the cell wall, and is rapidly proteolyzed. Our results also suggest that YneA may be active prior to signal peptide cleavage. We have isolated mutations that indicate that protein-protein interactions mediated by the transmembrane domain might be required for YneA activity. One possible YneA target may be DivIB, a divisome component that we identified in a screen for suppressors of yneA overexpression.

    "The clinical problems and dilemmas which the busy clinician encounters on a daily basis are the main focus of this publication. Emphasizing a clinical rather than a pathophysiological approach to problems, it facilitates access and helps the practicing clinician to develop an effective and efficient diagnostic and therapeutic strategy. Nevertheless, clinically important aspects of pathophysiology are also dealt with in detail when called for. A variety of scenarios that are especially relevant to modern medical practice, such as the intensive care unit, are taken into account. A group of internationally renowned experts guides the reader through the broad variety of diagnostic options available to assist in the assessment of symptoms originating anywhere along the gastrointestinal tract, from the esophagus to the anus, and, in each instance, every effort is made to critically appraise the technology discussed. Moreover, general overviews of broadly relevant therapeutic approaches are also provided. Pediatric and adult gastroenterologists, gastrointestinal surgeons and hospitalists will find this publication to be a valuable help in their daily practice"--Publisher's description.

    The memory for specific events and instances in time--episodic memory--is a central aspect of human cognition. It has long been thought that episodic memory is supported by a distributed network of regions in the brain, including frontal cortex and the medial temporal lobes. A growing body of neuroimaging evidence in the last several years has additionally suggested posterior parietal cortex (PPC) involvement during episodic retrieval. Several accounts have argued that the region's involvement reflects the engagement of two specific attentional processes, goal-driven and reflexive attention, distinctly residing in dorsal and ventral regions of PPC, respectively. Strict interpretations of such accounts, however, have recently been called into question, as attention- and memory-related processes might not occupy overlapping subregions of PPC. The research described here systematically assesses the anatomical and functional relationship between attention- and memory-related operations in PPC in a series of three experiments. The first experiment revealed four distinct patterns of activity across left lateral PPC--two thought to relate to mnemonic processes and two thought to relate to attention engaged during retrieval. The second experiment directly tested whether a region thought to index attention during retrieval from the first experiment was recruited in an independent attention task, with results suggesting that attention-sensitive regions are indeed engaged in a systematic manner during retrieval. The final experiment further probed the interaction between memory, attention, and decision-making processes engaged during retrieval, and replicated and extended the findings from the first experiment. Collectively, the findings from the research provide a more detailed depiction of how anatomically and functionally separable regions of PPC support distinct mechanisms of memory and attention.

    Cysteine proteases use a catalytic thiol to cleave amide bonds of protein substrates. This activity serves as an important regulatory mechanism for diverse cellular processes necessary for normal physiology. Dysregulated protease activity is a hallmark of numerous diseases, including atherosclerosis, arthritis, stroke, macular degeneration, neurodegenerative disorders, inflammatory diseases, and cancer. In the last decades, the field of activity-based proteomics has produced a number of tools for dissecting protease function. In the introductory chapter, I will discuss the current state of the field and describe the two main classes of probes for cysteine proteases: substrate-based and activity-based probes. I will then describe my own contribution to the field, which includes the design and characterization of several new and improved activity-based probes. We have applied these probes to optical imaging and biochemical characterization of three families of cysteine proteases: caspases, cathepsins and legumain. In particular, I have used these tools to aid in understanding the regulation of complex signaling pathways associated with cancer and inflammation. Caspases are key mediators of a programmed form of cell death called apoptosis. One of the key features of tumor cells is their ability to evade apoptosis, and therefore, a major therapeutic goal is to reactivate latent death pathways. We have developed fluorescent activity-based probes to image the induction of caspase activity in tumors in response to chemotherapy. In addition to non-invasive optical imaging, we have utilized these new probes to assess the kinetics of caspase activation in response to various death stimuli and identified a unique activation mechanism for the caspase-6 enzyme. Another emerging hallmark of cancer is infiltration of stromal-derived immune cells into the tumor, resulting in an inflammatory microenvironment. Crosstalk between tumor and immune cells can lead to enhanced proliferation, angiogenesis, and metastasis of tumor cells. The cysteine proteases legumain and cathepsins have been shown to play critical roles within the tumor microenvironment. I have developed new tools for optical imaging of their proteolytic activity in several cancer models as well as inflammation associated with pancreatitis. In the future, these new probes will have great value in further dissecting the roles of cysteine proteases in basic biology and disease. Since legumain and cathepsins are used as biomarkers for cancer, the ability to detect their proteolytic activity has much diagnostic and prognostic value in both pre-clinical and clinical settings. Furthermore, these new agents will be integral in validating these enzymes, particularly legumain, as drug targets.

    With strong numerical and computational focus, this book serves as an essential resource on the methods for functional neuroimaging analysis, diffusion weighted image analysis, and longitudinal VBM analysis. It includes four MRI image modalities analysis methods. The first covers the PWI methods, which is the basis for understanding cerebral flow in human brain. The second part, the book s core, covers MRI methods in three specific domains: first level analysis, second level analysis, and effective connectivity study. The third part covers the analysis of Diffusion weighted image, i.e. DTI, QBI and DSI image analysis. Finally, the book covers (longitudinal) VBM methods and its application to Alzheimer s disease study.

    Functional brain imaging techniques such as functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and positron emission tomography (PET) have emerged over the last several decades as powerful methods for understanding brain function and neuropsychiatric disorders. However, due to an inability to precisely and distinctly control the heterogeneous population of circuit elements in the brain, understanding the fundamental physiological mechanisms of these imaging modalities and realizing their potential for functional brain mapping has been limited. Optogenetics is a novel technique that allows for cell-type specific, reversible focal control within the mammalian brain with millisecond-timescale precision. In this thesis, I have utilized the unique cell-type specific neuromodulatory capacity of optogenetics to demonstrate and characterize, for the first time, the effect of direct stimulation of a subclass of excitatory neurons on the in vivo functional hemodynamic response of a rodent brain as measured with functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI). I have then used this technique, which we have called ofMRI, to perform large-scale functional mapping of distinct neural circuits that are specified by cell-type, cell-body location, and projection topology. To complement ofMRI studies, I have also developed the use of PET imaging and the radiotracer [18F]-fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) to further characterize the metabolic and hemodynamic response resulting from activation of genetically-specified neurons in the mammalian brain. Additionally, I have constructed an automated, parallelized all-optical ex vivo system for modulation and recording of distinct neural circuits relevant to neuropsychiatric disorders using voltage sensitive dye imaging (VSDI). Combining the highly specific and rapid control of optogenetics with the biological process sensitivity of PET, the spatial and temporal resolution of BOLD fMRI, and the neural circuit analysis capabilities of optical imaging has the potential to vastly increase our understanding of the roles of neural circuits in both normal and diseased brain states.

    Many children with medical conditions fail to improve despite physicians' best efforts. Sometimes, we ascribe this failure to lack of adherence to therapy, or to the severity of the condition. What we often fail to appreciate, however, is that sometimes the lack of improvement can be explained by the patients' psychological states. The first section of Functional Symptoms in Pediatric Disease: A Clinical Guide teaches children's health care providers to recognize functional symptoms that can complicate organic disease, as well as symptoms that are believed to be purely functional in origin. Literature reviews, case studies and quizzes are provided in each chapter, with video demonstrations included in some of the chapters. The second section of the book will help clinicians differentiate the patients for whom referral to a mental health provider is mandatory from those for whom other approaches may be useful. For the latter group, the book teaches clinicians to empower themselves by learning how to incorporate various therapies for functional disorders into their practice, including biofeedback, basic cognitive behavioral therapy techniques, hypnosis, acupressure, yoga and meditation. Practical strategies for obtaining training in these modalities are provided in the appendix. Useful for practicing clinicians including pediatricians, family practitioners, pediatric subspecialists, child psychiatrists, psychologists, other mental health care providers and practitioners of alternative and complementary medicine, Functional Symptoms in Pediatric Disease: A Clinical Guide is an important new book that will help children's health care providers consider the possible impact of functional contributions to the clinical presentation of their patients.

    Over the past decade, significant progress has been made in the theory and applications of pharmacodynamics of antimicrobial agents. On the basis of pharmacokinetic-pharmacodynamic modeling concepts it has become possible to describe and predict the time course of antimicrobial effects under normal and pathophysiological conditions. The study of pharmacokinetic-pharmacodynamic relationships can be of considerable value in understanding drug action, defining optimal dosing regimens, and in making predictions under new or changing pre-clinical and clinical circumstances. Not surprisingly, pharmacokinetic-pharmacodynamic modeling concepts are increasingly applied in both basic and clinical research as well as in drug development. Fundamentals of Antimicrobial Pharmacokinetics and Pharmacodynamics is designed as a reference on the application of pharmacokinetic-pharmacodynamic principles for the optimization of antimicrobial therapy, namely pharmacotherapy, and infectious diseases. The reader is introduced to various aspects of the fundamentals of antimicrobial pharmacodynamics, the integration of pharmacokinetics with pharmacodynamics for all major classes of antibiotics, from basic research to clinical situations.

    Transport processes represents important life sustaining elements in all humans. These include mass transfer processes, including gas exchange in the lungs, transport across capillaries and alveoli, transport across the kidneys, and transport across cell membranes. These mass transfer processes affect how oxygen and carbon dioxide are exchanged in your bloodstream, how metabolic waste products are removed from your blood, how nutrients are transported to tissues, and how all cells function throughout the body. A discussion of kidney dialysis and gas exchange mechanisms is included. Another element in biomedical transport processes is that of momentum transport and fluid flow. This describes how blood is propelled from the heart and throughout the cardiovascular system, how blood elements affect the body, including gas exchange, infection control, clotting of blood, and blood flow resistance, which affects cardiac work. A discussion of the measurement of the blood resistance to flow (viscosity), blood flow, and pressure is also included. A third element in transport processes in the human body is that of heat transfer, including heat transfer inside the body towards the periphery as well as heat transfer from the body to the environment. A discussion of temperature measurements and body protection in extreme heat conditions is also included.

    This is a basic book on evidence-based medicine (EBM). It starts with an introduction to the topic. It outlines the relationship between EBM and research and quality of care. Then It goes on to cover the most commonly used modules of EBM, i.e. therapy, diagnosis, prognosis and meta-analysis. Each module starts with an introduction to fundamental concepts, and description of the related research process, and then follows the critical appraisal of related type of research artcle. At the end, it covers the different systems of grading of level of evidence and strength of recommendations. The book also has three examples of critical appraisal on diagnosis, therapy, and meta-analysis.

    Fundamentals of Renal Pathology is a compact and up-to-date resource on the basics of renal pathology that will be of particular value to residents and fellows in training in renal pathology, general pathology, and nephrology, but will also serve as a handy reference for the more experienced. This second, revised and updated edition of the book offers an integrated approach based on contributions from established experts in the field. After considering normal renal anatomy and basic concepts and methods used in the assessment of renal biopsies, key diseases are discussed within the context of clinical presentations. The emphasis is on clinicopathological correlation and differential diagnosis. Topics discussed include glomerular diseases with nephrotic or nephritic syndrome presentations; systemic and vascular diseases affecting the kidney, including diseases affecting the renal transplant; tubulointerstitial diseases; and plasma cell dyscrasias and associated diseases. Well-chosen color illustrations and electron micrographs enhance and complement the text, and tables summarize the most up-to-date classifications and approaches for the various disease entities.

    This dissertation explores the impact of different types of investors on invention and innovation in new firms. While prior work has focused primarily on one type of investor, venture capitalists, and has investigated a few long-term outcomes such as exit events, I compare a variety of investor types and consider more immediate innovation-related goals. Drawing from agency and resource dependence theories, I develop and test hypotheses linking different investor types to invention and innovation in new firms. To do this, I construct a novel longitudinal dataset of 198 U.S.-based minimally invasive surgical device firms between 1986 and 2007. The findings indicate that investor type matters for both invention and innovation. Technology-focused investors promote invention while commercially-focused investors are more beneficial to innovation. I also find that although some investors (VCs) help innovation, other investors (the government's SBIR program) hurt it. This difference can be traced to investors' use of monitoring to tailor resources to the specific needs of new firms. These findings suggest that monitoring can be mutually beneficial to both parties as it allows investors to focus their efforts and new firms to receive needed resources at opportune times. My findings also suggest that new firms should be cautious, as there is a potential dark side to the relationships they form with investors: obtaining resources from some investors may prevent new firms from accomplishing their goals.

    In the past decade the global financial assistance for AIDS responses increased tremendously and the donor community provided greater resources to community responses. Yet little is known about the global magnitude of these resources and their allocation among HIV and AIDS activities and services. To address this knowledge gap, this report pulls together evidence from several different sources (donor data bases, surveys of civil society organizations, country funding profiles) to determine, among other things, how funds are reaching civil society and community-based organizations, how these funds are being used, and the degree to which these organizations rely on other sources of funding.--Source other than Library of Congress.

    Issues in reproductive ethics, such as the capacity of parents to choose children, present challenges to philosophical ideas of freedom, responsibility and harm. This book responds to these challenges by proposing a new framework for thinking about the ethics of reproduction that emphasizes the ways that social norms affect decisions about who is born. The book provides clear and thorough discussions of some of the dominant problems in reproductive ethics - human enhancement and the notion of the normal, reproductive liberty and procreative beneficence, the principle of harm and discrimination against disability - while also proposing new ways of addressing these. The author draws upon the work of Michel Foucault, especially his discussions of biopolitics and norms, and later work on ethics, alongside feminist theorists of embodiment to argue for a new bioethics that is responsive to social norms, human vulnerability and the relational context of freedom and responsibility. This is done through compelling discussions of new technologies and practices, including the debate on liberal eugenics and human enhancement, the deliberate selection of disabilities, PGD and obstetric ultrasound.
