- 2014 SpringerTomas Lindor Griebling, editor.Geriatric urology represents one of the largest overall sectors of care provided within the specialty of urology. As the incidence and prevalence of many clinical urologic conditions increase significantly in older adults, the practice of urology involves a need for advanced knowledge of the basic principles of geriatrics. Geriatric Urology outlines important topics in the care of elderly urology patients. The first section covers the biology of aging, changes in the genitourinary system, and common diseases including urologic conditions that may serve as warning signs of other disorders. Section two covers geriatric syndromes and implications for urologic care including frailty, polypharmacy, dementia, , and wound healing. Urologic conditions in older adults are explored in detail including urinary incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse, urinary tract infection, nocturia, and benign prostate diseases. Other topics covered include obtaining informed consent, development of advance directives, palliative medicine and care of the dying patient. Geriatric Urology is of great value to urologists, geriatricians, internists, residents and family practitioners.

- Ghost map : the story of London's most terrifying epidemic--and how it changed science, cities, and the modern world2006Steven Johnson.An account of the worst cholera outbreak in Victorian London--and an exploration of how Dr. John Snow's solution revolutionized the way we think about disease in cities. In the summer of 1854, a devastating cholera outbreak seized London just as it was emerging as a modern city: more than 2 million people packed into a ten-mile circumference, a hub of travel and commerce, continually pushing the limits of infrastructure that's outdated as soon as it's updated. Author Johnson chronicles Snow's day-by-day efforts as he risked his own life to prove how the epidemic was being spread. When he created the map that traced the pattern of outbreak back to its source, Dr. Snow didn't just solve a pressing medical riddle--he established a precedent for the way modern city-dwellers, city planners, physicians, and public officials think about the spread of disease and the development of the modern urban environment.--From publisher description.
- 2012 SpringerRoy G. Smith, Michael O. Thorner, editors.Ghrelin, the endogenous ligand for the growth hormone secretagogue (GHS) receptor, is critical in the control of food intake and energy balance. The ghrelin receptors are now known to have important physiological properties as modulators of growth hormone release, appetite, glucose homeostasis, metabolism, immune function, neurotransmitter activity, cognitive function and neurodegeneration. Bringing all of this information together in the first comprehensive text on the topic, Ghrelin in Health and Disease provides a state-of-the-art synthesis of the latest work in this area for physicians and physician-scientists. This volume addresses the unique property of ghrelin as a modulator of function. Such a property provides potential utility for safe intervention in a wide variety of disease states. Indeed as we learn more about the basic physiology of ghrelin, the potential for treating new disease targets emerge requiring validation in the clinic. Each chapter in this volume is authored by a leading investigator in the field. The introductory chapter sets the background for the book and provides a superb overview of the relevance of ghrelin to physiology, describing how the discovery of ghrelin has prompted us to completely rethink traditional physiology. The authors conclude their chapters by critically addressing the future translational aspects of ghrelin biology and outlining what key basic research and clinical questions remain to be addressed. An invaluable resource, Ghrelin in Health and Disease distinguishes itself as the first comprehensive title covering all of the molecular and clinical issues relating to ghrelin and advancing our clinical understanding of obesity, growth, and reproductive pathogenesis.

- Giant magnetoresistive nanosensors for ultrasensitive in vitro diagnostics and biomolecular kinetics2011Richard S. Gaster.Nanotechnology has the unique capability of manipulating and sensing matter at the molecular scale with unprecedented speed, sensitivity, and throughput. The medical application of nanotechnology, nanomedicine, has leveraged nanoscience tools for the advancement of medical diagnostics, therapy, and basic science research. In this work, arrays of magnetically responsive nanosensors, originally developed for use as read heads in computer hard disk drives, have been utilized to achieve in-depth proteomic studies for the advancement of medical diagnostics and therapy. In particular, this dissertation will focus on the following four topics of applying magnetic nanotechnology to science and medicine. First, the application of magnetic nanosensor arrays to early cancer diagnostics and monitoring response to chemotherapy. The utility of magnetic nanosensors as a molecular diagnostics tool capable of profiling a patient's disease state and leveraging a patient's unique molecular signature will be demonstrated. Second, this report will discuss a novel mathematical model expressly developed to describe the kinetic interactions of magnetically labeled biomolecules binding to capture agents immobilized on a surface. Third, a novel autoassembly immunoassay capable of screening for antibody cross-reactivity in a high-density, high-fidelity, and rapid manner will be described. Finally, this report will address the utility of the autoassembly immunoassay in conjunction with a miniaturized magnetic nanosensor platform for point-of-care diagnostics in a cost-effective and easy-to-use (e.g. wash-free) process that can make a significant contribution to global health.

It shows, for the first time, global and regional estimates of the prevalence of these two forms of violence, using data from around the world. Previous reporting on violence against women has not differentiated between partner and non-partner violence."--Website.
- 2013 SpringerJan Willem van der Laan, Joseph J. DeGeorge, editors.The International Conference on Harmonisation of Technical Requirements for Registration of Pharmaceuticals for Human Use (ICH) is a unique project that brings together the regulatory authorities of Europe, Japan and the US and experts from the pharmaceutical industry in the three regions to discuss scientific and technical aspects of product registration. In Japan, the members are the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare (MHLW), and the Japan Pharmaceutical Manufacturers Association (JPMA). In Europe, the members are the EU (Representatives of the European Commission and the European Medicines Agency [EMA]), and the European Federation of Pharmaceutical Industries and Associations (EFPIA). In the United States, the members are the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America (PhRMA). The International Federation of Pharmaceutical Manufacturers Associations (IFPMA) is the secretariat of the ICH. Additional members include Observers from WHO, European Free Trade Association (EFTA), and Canada. The Observers represent non-ICH countries and regions. This volume considers one of ICH's major categories, Safety, covering topics relating to in vitro and in vivo pre-clinical studies (Carcinogenicity Testing, Genotoxicity Testing, etc.). Since the start of the ICH process, many guidelines have been written, but in most cases there is a lack of awareness of the many issues that were addressed during the development of the consensus guidances. Further, just as it is important to understand what the guidances state, it is also important to understand the thoughts, debates, and intent of the experts involved, which are not included in the guidance documents. Why has the guideline been written as it is written, why are some topics ignored, and why have some initial guidance proposals have been deleted. These and other related questions and answers are the contents of this book, written by experts who were directly involved in writing the ICH guidances that drive drug development today.

- 2012Joshua Asher Weinstein.The adaptive immune system enables individuals to defend against previously un-encountered pathogens by trial and error. It does so by employing receptors, known as antibodies, whose active genetic diversification fine-tunes this defensive response. Tremendous progress has been made in understanding the mechanisms by which antibodies develop and signal activation. However, it was not until a few years ago, with the advent of affordable in-house high-throughput DNA sequencing, and our publication of whole zebrafish antibody repertoires, that any organism's antibody diversity was characterized comprehensively. In this dissertation, we demonstrate the power of this "top-down" approach to illuminate global, system-wide changes of immune receptor repertoires during organism development and immune response. Special attention is given to applying these measurements to build predictive dynamical models that elucidate the interplay between antibody-sequences and the B-cells that produce them. While we use zebrafish liberally as a model organism for these purposes, cross-species comparisons establish far more general principles of repertoire organization. We go further to evaluate the efficacy of high-throughput immune receptor sequencing to advance clinical goals by inferring which vaccines were received by human patients based on antibody-sequences obtained from whole blood afterward. Finally, we demonstrate the usefulness of single B-cell measurements to correlate antibody mutations to gene expression, thereby providing insight into how these variables co-vary system-wide. This work serves to illustrate the potential of global characterizations of antibody repertoires for providing newer and clearer pictures of immune dynamics in general.
- 2014 SpringerKent E. Pinkerton, William N. Rom, editors.Pulmonary physicians and scientists currently have minimal capacity to respond to climate change and its impacts on health. The extent to which climate change influences the prevalence and incidence of respiratory morbidity remains largely undefined. However, evidence is increasing that climate change does drive respiratory disease onset and exacerbation as a result of increased ambient and indoor air pollution, desertification, heat stress, wildfires, and the geographic and temporal spread of pollens, molds and infectious agents. Preliminary research has revealed climate change to have potentially direct and indirect adverse impacts on respiratory health. Published studies have linked climate change to increases in respiratory disease, including the following: changing pollen releases impacting asthma and allergic rhinitis, heat waves causing critical care-related diseases, climate driven air pollution increases, exacerbating asthma and COPD, desertification increasing particulate matter (PM) exposures, and climate related changes in food and water security impacting infectious respiratory disease through malnutrition (pneumonia, upper respiratory infections). High level ozone and ozone exposure has been linked to idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, lung cancer, and acute lower respiratory infection. Global Climate Change and Public Health is an important new volume based on the research, findings, and discussions of US and international experts on respiratory health and climate change. This volume addresses issues of major importance to respiratory health and fills a major gap in the current literature.

- 2013 SpringerIlona Kickbusch, Graham Lister, Michaela Told, Nick Drager, editors.The world's problems are indeed world problems: social and environmental crises, global trade and politics, and major epidemics are making public health a pressing global concern. From this constantly changing scenario, global health diplomacy has evolved, at the intersection of public health, international relations, law, economics, and management--a new discipline with transformative potential. Global Health Diplomacy situates this concept firmly within the human rights dialogue and provides a solid framework for understanding global health issues and their negotiation. This up-to-the-minute guide sets out defining principles and the current agenda of the field, and examines key relationships such as between trade and health diplomacy, and between global health and environmental issues. The processes of global governance are detailed as the UN, WHO, and other multinational actors work to address health inequalities among the world's peoples.

- 2010David William Hutton.Hepatitis B (HBV) is a vaccine-preventable viral disease that, if untreated, can lead to death from liver disease in 25 percent of patients. Infection with HBV is a major global public health problem, particularly in Asian populations. In an era of limited healthcare budgets, mathematical models can be useful tools to identify cost-effective programs and to support policymakers in making informed decisions. This dissertation describes research on public health policies related to screening, vaccination, and treatment for HBV. It also describe contributions to the theoretical literature on when to stop catch-up vaccination for chronic infectious diseases. In the United States as many as 10% of Asian and Pacific Islander adults are chronically infected with HBV, and up to two thirds are unaware that they are infected. Using Markov models of infection, treatment and disease, I find that screening programs for HBV among Asian and Pacific Islander adults are likely to be cost effective and have clinically significant benefits from identifying chronically infected persons for medical management. Liver disease associated with childhood-acquired HBV is a leading cause of death among adults in China. Approximately 20% of children under age 5 years and 40% of children aged 5 to 19 years remain unprotected from HBV. Using a Markov model of infection and disease progression I find that HBV catch-up vaccination for children and adolescents in China would improve the health of the population and save costs over the long term. Although the 20th century has seen incredible development of safe and effective vaccines, many people remain susceptible to vaccine-preventable diseases. "Catch-up vaccination" for age groups beyond infancy can be an attractive and effective means of immunizing people who were missed earlier. However, as vaccination rates increase, catch-up vaccination may become less attractive. This chapter addresses the question of when to discontinue catch-up vaccination programs as immunization rates increase. I use a cost-effectiveness framework: I consider the cost per quality-adjusted life year gained of catch-up vaccination efforts, as a function of immunization rates over time and consequent disease prevalence and incidence. I illustrate the results with the example of HBV catch-up vaccination in China. I contrast results from a dynamic modeling approach with an approach that ignores the impact of vaccination on disease incidence.

The book provides a comprehensive review and synthesis of the available public health and social science data to characterize the nature, scope, and complexities of these epidemics. A community empowerment-based approach to HIV prevention, treatment, and care is outlined and demonstrated to be cost-effective across multiple settings, with a significant projected impact on HIV incidence among sex workers and transmission dynamics overall. The Global HIV Epidemics among Sex Workers seeks to assist governments, public health implementing agencies, donors, and sex worker communities to better understand and respond to the epidemics among a population facing heightened social and structural vulnerabilities to HIV. The book combines a systematic review of the global epidemiology of HIV among sex workers and in-depth case studies of the epidemiology, policy and programmatic responses and surrounding social contexts for HIV prevention, care and treatment in eight countries. The authors employ mathematical modeling and cost-effectiveness analysis to assess the potential country-level impact of a community empowerment-based approach to HIV prevention, treatment, and care among sex workers when taken to scale in four countries representing diverse sociopolitical contexts and HIV epidemics: Brazil, Kenya, Thailand, and Ukraine. In each setting, greater investment in prevention, treatment, and care for sex workers is shown to significantly reduce HIV. Together these findings underline the urgency of further global investment in comprehensive, human rights-based responses to HIV among sex workers.
- 2013Martin Prince, Maëlenn Guerchet, and Matthew Prina.Although high income countries, including the G8, have borne the brunt of the dementia epidemic, this is a global phenomenon. Most people with dementia live in low and middle income countries, and most of the dramatic increases in numbers affected, through to 2050, will occur in those regions. In a spirit of international cooperation and solidarity we urge the G8 governments to sponsor intergovernmental action to make dementia a global priority. Crucially, this must include opening up access to diagnosis and current evidence-based treatment and care. All countries worldwide are failing in this basic objective. Action to address this problem should be balanced, as a priority, with research to improve treatment options and quality of care.

- 2014 SpringerR. Gosselin, D. Spiegel, M. Foltz (eds.).Global Orthopedics: Caring for Musculoskeletal Conditions and Injuries in Austere Settings was conceived and written to be a unique reference for surgeons working in resource-limited environments. The first sections provide historical background, global public health perspectives of orthopedics, the role of culture, and a broad discussion of non-surgical and non-orthopedic clinical topics that are rarely encountered in high-resource settings but that affect orthopedic care. Adult and pediatric trauma are presented in an anatomical format for easy reference, with a focus on the natural history and the best treatment methods within existing limitations. The chapters on musculoskeletal infections provide a wealth of knowledge about these common debilitating conditions that is unavailable in any other single modern text. The non-infectious pediatric conditions section has been written for the non-specialist to handle selected developmental and early childhood orthopedic problems commonly seen in low-resource settings. Detailed chapters on reconstruction surgery, tumor management, amputations, and the orthopedic needs in the face of conflicts and natural disasters round out the text.

- 2013 SpringerIchiro Kawachi, Soshi Takao, S.V. Subramanian, editors.The idea of social capital emerged in the social science disciplines to explain puzzling phenomena such as why some communities fare better in crisis than others. As the field matures, it has been adapted to wide-ranging issues such as population health. This book presents the major research issues as well as nuanced theoretical discussion in keeping with an evolving field in Europe, Asia, and the U.S. Background chapters analyze how social capital manifests in neighborhoods, workplaces, and schools, and its relationship to health. The second half offers guidelines for improving population health at the social capital level, and examples of interventions, such as microfinance programs, in which enhanced social capital and health benefits are a significant by-product. And a number of contributors debate the problems of defining the concept and using the term at all.

- 2014 WHOThis global status report on prevention and control of NCDs (2014), is framed around the nine voluntary global targets. The report provides data on the current situation, identifying bottlenecks as well as opportunities and priority actions for attaining the targets. The 2010 baseline estimates on NCD mortality and risk factors are provided so that countries can report on progress, starting in 2015. In addition, the report also provides the latest available estimates on NCD mortality (2012) and risk factors, 2010-2012. All ministries of health need to set national NCD targets and lead the development and implementation of policies and interventions to attain them. There is no single pathway to attain NCD targets that fits all countries, as they are at different points in their progress in the prevention and control of NCDs and at different levels of socioeconomic development. However all countries can benefit from the comprehensive response to attaining the voluntary global targets presented in this report.--Publisher description.

The health consequences of the worldwide epidemic of obesity are also addressed. The report takes an analytical approach, using global, regional and country-specific data to document the magnitude of the problem, project future trends, and assess the factors contributing to these trends. As noted, the epidemic of these diseases is being driven by forces now touching every region of the world: demographic aging, rapid unplanned urbanization, and the globalization of unhealthy lifestyles"--Publisher's description.

In most regions of the world this epidemic of road traffic injuries is still increasing. In the past five years most countries have endorsed the recommendations of the World report on road traffic injury prevention which give guidance on how countries can implement a comprehensive approach to improving road safety and reducing the death toll on their roads. To date, however, there has been no global assessment of road safety that indicates the extent to which this approach is being implemented. This Global status report on road safety is the first broad assessment of the status of road safety in 178 countries, using data drawn from a standardized survey conducted in 2008. The results provide a benchmark that countries can use to assess their road safety position relative to other countries, while internationally the data presented can collectively be considered as a global "aseline"against which progress over time can be measured.

- 2014 SpringerMirto Foletto, Raul J. Rosenthal, editors ; foreword by Nicola Scopinaro.The increasing prevalence of morbid obesity has led the World Health Organization to coin the descriptive term "globesity" to reflect the worldwide nature of the problem. Providing health care to these patients, especially when surgery is required, can be extremely challenging owing to the specific needs in respect of logistics, facilities, and professional expertise. Appropriate care has too often been unachievable and unaffordable outside of established bariatric centers, but such centers themselves usually have insufficient capacity and resources to cope with growing demand. This book aims to provide guidance and helpful tips and tricks on how to deal with obese patients within a general surgery setting. Epidemiology, organizational and logistical aspects, nursing issues, patient assessment, anesthesiology, and surgical practicalities are expertly covered in the opening chapters. Techniques of relevance to the general surgeon are described according to anatomic region, covering the head and neck; cardiothoracic and vascular system; upper and lower GI tract; pancreas, liver and adrenal glands; urinary tract and kidneys; the reproductive system; and the abdominal wall. Results achieved by bariatric surgery worldwide are reviewed, and the book closes with a chapter devoted to plastic and reconstructive surgery. The Globesity Challenge to General Surgery highlights a need for global rethinking on public health as regards resource allocation and patterns and standards of care, improving outcomes through greater affordability.

- 2011Shawn Fletcher Sorrells.Glucocorticoids (GCs) are stress hormones that are well-known for their potent and pleiotropic anti-inflammatory effects. In the injured CNS, their anti-inflammatory properties could be particularly beneficial due to the often detrimental effects of excessive inflammation in the brain. In more recent years, however, it has become clear that GCs do not always decrease inflammation and can even augment aspects of the immune response. The research presented in this doctoral dissertation describes the impact of this increased inflammatory response in the CNS using animal models of excitotoxicity and hypoxia/ischemia. Specifically, both exogenous GC treatments and the endogenously released GCs post-injury were found to increase immune cell activation (both in phenotype and in p65 nuclear translocation) in both rat and mouse models of excitotoxic hippocampal neuron death and in a mouse MCAO stroke model. These increased inflammatory responses are likely to be mediated by an unexpected GC-suppression of several anti-inflammatory cytokines including CX3CL1 and CD22 and failure of GCs to activate some of their normal anti-inflammatory targets like IkBa, IL-1ra, and MKP-1. Furthermore, these GC-augmented inflammatory responses are necessary for GCs to make more neurons die from either of these injuries. Taken together, this work demonstrates that cellular inflammation is not kept in check by GCs in the forebrain; instead, GCs worsen hippocampal and cortical neuron death, at least in part, by increasing the neurotoxicity of CNS inflammation.

- 2011Drew Alexander Hall.Nanotechnology has had a transformative effect on medical diagnostics due to the influx of new sensing modalities and transducers. Magnetic nanotechnologies, in particular, have shown significant potential in several areas of nanomedicine such as imaging, therapeutics, and early disease detection. Giant magnetoresistive spin-valve (GMR SV) sensors, commonly used in hard disk drives, coupled with magnetic nanotags have shown great promise as biosensors. In this work, we present several custom designed circuit interface and readout systems tailored to specific application spaces and their unique needs. Taken together, we have demonstrated that innovative electronic circuits play an indispensable role in unlocking the tremendous potential of nanosensors in the biomedical arena. The first system was designed for ultrasensitive early cancer diagnostics and built using off-the-shelf components for an 8x8 array of GMR SV sensors. At the core of this design, we demonstrate a new circuit architecture based on a transimpedance amplifier (TIA) with a carrier suppression technique to reduce the dynamic range requirement and a multiplexing scheme to reduce the readout time. This system is capable of real-time, multiplex detection with a detection limit of 5 femtomolar (fM) and over 6 orders of linear dynamic range. The second system is a miniaturized, portable platform called the nanoLAB. Although there is a growing need for point-of-care (POC) testing for global health, the current options are bulky, slow, expensive, and often not sensitive. The nanoLAB addresses these needs and pushes the state of the art with sensitive 8-plex detection using a wash-free assay that can be run by anyone, anywhere. This platform was tested and validated using human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) biomarkers with detection down to 50 fM in as little as 15 minutes. We also show how a GMR SV biosensor can be integrated into a continuous time sigma delta modulator. This proof-of-concept hybrid sigma delta modulator has a peak SNR of 99.3 dB and a dynamic range of over 92 dB in a 1 kHz bandwidth using the sensor as part of the first integrator. The carrier suppression and multiplexing concepts were also incorporated into the hybrid sigma delta modulator. Lastly, we conclude by describing an integrated platform for a large 16x16 array of GMR SV sensors implemented in a 0.18 [mu]m CMOS technology. Arranged like an imager chip, each of the 16 column level readout channels contains an analog front-end and an analog-to-digital converter. Each readout channel occupies less than 0.2 mm^2 of chip area and consumes 3.4 mW of power. This system is designed as a replacement for optical protein microarrays while being fully quantitative and providing real-time readout.

- 2012Victoria Sweet."San Francisco's Laguna Honda Hospital is the last almshouse in the country, a descendant of the Hotel-Dieu (God's Hotel) that cared for the sick in the Middle Ages. Ballet dancers and rock musicians, professors and thieves--"anyone who had fallen, or, often, leapt, onto hard times" and needed extended medical care-ended up here. So did Victoria Sweet, who came for two months and stayed for twenty years. Laguna Honda, lower tech but human paced, gave Sweet the opportunity to practice a kind of attentive medicine that has almost vanished. Gradually, the place transformed the way she understood her work. Alongside the modern view of the body as a machine to be fixed, her extraordinary patients evoked an older idea, of the body as a garden to be tended. God's Hotel tells their story and the story of the hospital itself, which, as efficiency experts, politicians, and architects descended, determined to turn it into a modern "health care facility," revealed its own surprising truths about the essence, cost, and value of caring for body and soul"--Provided by publisher. "Choosing service in the last remaining almshouse in America, and tracing our understanding of medicine back to its medieval roots, a physician uncovers lost lessons in the care of body and soul"--Provided by publisher. Includes detailed explorations of Hildegard's medical practice and its occasional unexpected utility for modern problems.

- 2016 ClinicalKey[edited by] Lee Goldman, and Andrew I. Schafer.In the 90 years since the first edition of the Cecil Textbook of Medicine was published, almost everything we know about internal medicine has changed. Progress in medical science is now occurring at an ever-accelerating pace, and it is doing so within the framework of transformational changes in clinical practice and the delivery of health care at individual, social, and global levels. However, we have remained true to the tradition of a comprehensive textbook of medicine that carefully explains the why (the underlying pathophysiology of disease) and the how (now expected to be evidence-based from randomized controlled trials and meta-analyses). In short-- Goldman-Cecil Medicine offers definitive, unbiased guidance on the evaluation and management of every medical condition.

Illustrated with a wealth of figures and photos, it provides updated techniques for clinicians, technicians, and researchers. This book also gives insights into in vitro activation (IVA), in vitro growing (IVG), and in vitro maturation (IVM), with both basic research and future directions. These techniques combined with cryopreservation will improve the chances of reproduction. Cryopreservation is essential to protect fertility in cancer patients who undergo treatment with radioiodine or chemotherapy, which may cause damage to their reproductive organs, and also for primary ovarian insufficiency patients. The book also includes a chapter on the risk of the presence of malignant cells in ovarian tissue. Both editors are pioneering researchers in this field.
