    The first cases of what would later become known as AIDS were reported in the United States in June of 1981. Since then, 1.8 million people in the U.S. are estimated to have been infected with HIV, including over 650,000 who have already died and more than 1.1 million estimated to be living with the disease today. The response to the U.S. epidemic has yielded numerous successes, but challenges remain.

    This book examines in detail the current treatment options for first-line, relapsed, and refractory Hodgkin lymphoma and the management appropriate in special clinical circumstances, including in the elderly, pregnant women, and those with lymphocyte-predominant disease. Careful attention is devoted to the emerging individually tailored treatment strategies that are especially appealing given their potential to reduce early and late treatment side effects in this generally young patient population. In addition, clear guidance is provided on the management of Hodgkin survivors. Other topics addressed include epidemiology, pathogenesis, the role of the microenvironment, initial clinical evaluation, imaging diagnosis, use of staging systems, and prognostic factors. The second edition of Hodgkin Lymphoma: A Comprehensive Overview has been revised and updated by the key opinion leaders to reflect recent progress in the field. It will be of great value to hematologists, oncologists, and all others with an interest in Hodgkin lymphoma. .

    Dierck Hillmann ; with a foreword by Gereon Hüttmann.
    Holoscopy is a new tomographic imaging modality that combines techniques of digital holography with Fourier-domain optical coherence tomography (FD-OCT). Dierck Hillmann gives a theoretical introduction to the mathematics and physics of holoscopy and develops an efficient numerical reconstruction procedure. Compared to FD-OCT, holoscopy provides unique advantages by enabling tomographic imaging without a limited depth of focus, but results in an increased numerical cost for reconstruction. In further chapters, the author introduces techniques for FD-OCT that are relevant to holoscopy as well. He demonstrates and compares numerical reconstruction methods for FD-OCT and shows how motion and dispersion artifacts in FD-OCT can be numerically compensated. Contents Theoretical Introduction to Optical Coherence Tomography and Digital Holography FD-OCT Signal Processing Using the Non-Equispaced Fast Fourier Transform Motion and Dispersion Correction in FD-OCT Holoscopy Target Groups Academics and practitioners in the fields of computer science, optical coherence tomography, digital holography, and medical imaging. The Author Dierck Hillmann received his doctoral degree in the group of Gereon Hüttmann at the Institute of Biomedical Optics in Lübeck and is currently working for a leading company in the fields of science and photonics. The Editor The series Aktuelle Forschung Medizintechnik is edited by Thorsten M. Buzug.

    Human homeostasis refers to complex interactions to regulate and maintain the internal conditions of the organism under stable condition. In spite of the progress made on cell growth and division, the circuits that coordinate these processes and maintain the homeostatic balance between cell growth and cell death have not been clarified. Deregulation of homeostatic processes results in different forms of imbalances that can turn to diseases including hepatitis, cyrrhosis and tumor formation. Abnormal growth of tissues can lead to a broad spectrum of neoplastic diseases from tissue swelling, primary tumor formation, cancer and ultimately to secondary tumors known as metastases. Tumor formation is a complex process, that develops through many steps. The discussion of balance and its loss in cell growth, primary and secondary tumor formation necessitate basic information in chemistry (carcinogenesis), biochemistry (metabolism), physics (instrumentation), cell biology (compartments), anatomy, physiology, clinical experience (screening, medical imaging, therapy). The focus of this book has been placed on: a) balance of cell growth, b) tumor formation, c) development of cancer and metastasis, e) diagnosis and treatment of cancer. The steps of the lymphatic type of metastatic tumor spread are described. Due to the interdisciplinary nature, the book gives information for a wide audience including biology, biotechnology, molecular, ecology, medical, pharmacist, chemist students. Additional information is provided for biomedical, pharma, medical and life scientists, physicians and health care professionals.

    Excess of homocysteine, a product of the metabolism of the essential amino acid methionine, is associated with poor health, is linked to heart and brain diseases in general human populations, and accelerates mortality in heart disease patients. Neurological and cardiovascular abnormalities occur in patients with severe genetic hyperhomocysteinemia and lead to premature death due to vascular complications. Although it is considered a non-protein amino acid, studies over the past dozen years have discovered mechanisms by which homocysteine becomes a component of proteins. Homocysteine-containing proteins lose their normal biological function and become auto-immunogenic and pro-thrombotic. In this book, the author, a pioneer and a leading contributor to the field, describes up-to date studies of the biological chemistry of homocysteine-containing proteins, as well as pathological consequences and clinical implications of their formation. This is a comprehensive account of the broad range of basic science and medical implications of homocysteine-containing proteins for health and disease.

    Physical activity exerts an important influence on the endocrine system, modulating synthesis and secretion of several hormones. Almost every organ and system in the body is affected by physical activity and exercise, mainly through the endocrine and neuroendocrine system. Mode, intensity, and duration of the exercise bout, age, gender and fitness level of the individual as well as environmental and psychological factors may affect the endocrine response to physical activity. On the other hand, several hormones are able to influence physical performance and body composition. Thus, a bi-univocal interrelationship between exercise and hormones exists. In this book new developments on metabolic and endocrine response to exercise are revised and introduce the 'hot topic' of hormonal doping in sports. In the past decades, hormone abuse has become a widespread habit among professional and - most of all and more frequently - recreational athletes. A substantial part of this volume is devoted to the effects of exogenous hormones on performance. Anabolic steroids, growth hormone and erythropoietin properties, use and misuse in sports are widely described. Specific methods to detect hormone abuse are presented and discussed.

    The art of medicine becomes science when supported by evidence. The recommended practices of infection prevention are based on scientific and epidemiologic evidence. However,most health care professionals see them as mandates and fail to incorporate them into their routine patient care activities. Thecore goal of this publication is to link the practices to theprinciples they are based on. The expectation is that understanding ofthe principles willchange thepractices from mandates to "should do" in the minds of health care professionals. This will lead to improvement inhealth care by preventing unintended harm to patients, co-workers and the communities at large. At the same time, the text provides a comprehensive, thorough and up to date information on all aspects of infection prevention in a reader-friendly manner and therefore, will serve as a valuable reference.

    Helicobacter pylori is a human specific pathogen that chronically infects the stomachs of over half of the world's population. Infection with H. pylori strains expressing the virulence factor, CagA, greatly increases the risk of developing gastric cancer, although only a subset of infected individuals develop severe disease. It is therefore important to define factors that contribute to disease progression in the context of H. pylori infection. This body of work began with developing a CagA+ mouse model in which both H. pylori and mouse genetics can be used to study disease development. Using this system, we have identified three novel factors that influence disease progression. Two months after oral infection, mice develop precancerous lesions such as mucous metaplasia. However, animals infected as neonates are protected from developing lesions compared to mice infected as adults, suggesting that the age of infection is an important risk factor for disease development. Using 3D confocal microscopy, we discovered that H. pylori preferentially colonizes gastric glands in the antrum of the stomach. A chemotaxis mutant that is unable to properly sense and respond to its environment can colonize the surface of the stomach but fails to colonize the mid-gastric glands. Development of pathology is reduced in animals infected with the chemotaxis mutant, indicating that bacterial factors that affect localization of H. pylori within the glands is important for disease progression. Surprisingly, we discovered that the severity of pathology in genetically identical C57BL/6 mice from two different vendors is dramatically different. Mice from one vendor develop an antrum-dominant infection and inflammation, but fail to develop precancerous lesions. Mice from the second vendor develop precancerous lesions, and the infection and inflammatory response are distributed throughout the stomach. Our findings align with disease progression observed in human infection with H. pylori, in which an antrum-dominant gastritis is protective against cancerous lesions and pan-gastritis is associated with gastric cancer development. We suspected that the gut microbiota is an environmental factor that influences differences in H. pylori localization and host pathology. By co-housing animals from the two vendors or perturbing the flora with antibiotics prior to infection with H. pylori, we found that both bacterial localization and pathology could be shifted to the corpus in the animals from the first vendor, suggesting that the microbiota may influence H. pylori localization and disease progression. Since mice from second vendor had a dominant phenotype in the co-housing experiments, we compared the gut microbiota composition of the animals by sequencing fecal samples obtained before and after co-housing. The microbiota of the animals from the two vendors were different prior to co-housing, but after co-housing, the microbiota of both groups was similar to the animals from the second vendor. These findings support the observation that mice from the first vendor phenocopy mice from the second vendor after co-housing. We are currently identifying specific components of the microbiota that may be responsible for shifting the phenotype. Analysis of differences in the immune response of animals from the two vendors suggest that the microbiota may shift the immune balance in response to H. pylori infection and lead to differential disease outcomes. Using our mouse model of infection, we have identified novel host, bacterial and environmental factors that contribute to H. pylori-induced disease progression.

    Host-adapted pathogens depend on their host for transmission and dissemination to new hosts. Salmonella enterica includes a plethora of serovars that cause host-adapted diseases in both livestock animals and humans, an example of which is Salmonella enterica serovar Typhi, the causative agent of typhoid fever. Epidemiological and mathematical modeling data indicate that a specific subset of infected hosts are responsible for the majority of disease transmission. Human typhoid carriers are a classic example of this subset, characterized by persistently infected yet asymptomatic individuals who transmit disease via the fecal oral route. The work contained in this thesis attempts to answer how carriers differ from other hosts, in particular how the host immune response in carriers allows those individuals to remain asymptomatic despite the large numbers of Salmonella in the gastrointestinal tract. We use a mouse model of persistent Salmonella infection wherein a subset of the infected hosts (super-shedders) are able to transmit disease to naive cage mates. Having characterized the development of the host immune response during chronic Salmonella infection, we identify an immune state unique to super-shedder hosts. The super-shedder immune phenotype consists of an active innate immune response with high frequency of neutrophils and serum Interleukin-6 and a suppressed adaptive T cell response with dampened cytokine responsiveness. Administration of Granulocyte colony stimulating factor to moderate-shedders is sufficient to phenocopy the blunted T cell responses of the super-shedder immune state demonstrating that neutrophils control the suppression of the adaptive T cell response. The super-shedder immune state also serves a functional purpose, protecting the host against antibiotic-driven dysbiosis. The microbiota and host-pathogen interactions together induce a unique state of tolerance in Salmonella carriers, potentially contributing to the transmission of the pathogen in the general population.

    The immune response to a pathogen is a complex interplay between host factors aimed to eradicate the pathogen, and microbe virulence proteins designed to subvert the host. To successfully combat a pathogen, the host must identify the insult and activate an immune response tailored to eliminate the specific microbe. This entails cell signaling at the level of innate immunity to detect the pathogen and mount an immediate non-specific response, while also communicating to bystander cells to shape the scope of the adaptive arm of immunity. The work herein investigates how the intracellular signaling network is activated and perturbed across cell types and hematopoietic tissues during bacterial infection. An introductory background on the current knowledge in the field of immune signaling is provided in chapter 1. Antigen presenting cells detect pathogenic motifs via pattern recognition receptors including toll-like receptors. This triggers an intracellular signaling cascade with specific transcriptional consequences, including the production of cytokines. In turn, these cytokines alert additional cell types to activate specific signal transducer and activator of transcription (STAT) transcription factor family members. Thus, detection of a microbe initiates rapid signaling across leukocytes to set the stage for the immune response. Chapter 2 focuses on cell signaling experiments in a murine model for the onset of sepsis. Mice were acutely challenged with avirulent E. coli and Listeria monocytogenes to study the host response without pathogenic manipulation of host signaling by bacterial virulence factors. Bacterial challenge causes macrophages and dendritic cells to become attenuated in their ability to respond to TLR agonists, a hallmark of endotoxin tolerance. Also, it induces global dampening of the STAT response to cytokines across all cell types; splenocytes from challenged mice poorly respond to cytokine stimulation. Cytokines secreted by antigen presenting cells act on bystander cells and induced negative feedback, including SOCS expression and receptor endocytosis that prevent further STAT activation. Thus, bacterial recognition causes host immune activation followed by subsequent suppression of signaling. The work in chapter 3 transitions to a model of chronic infection with pathogenic Salmonella typhimurium. In addition to examining the innate response, this model enables investigation of adaptive immunity by monitoring the activation of T cells, their cytokine response profile, and TH-biasing by the transcription factors they express and cytokines they produce. During chronic infection, B cells and effector T cells undergo expansion but not contraction over the first 30 days, demonstrating that the immune system establishes a new equilibrium. However, the degree of cell expansion, as well as the ability of these cells to respond to cytokine, is quite variable across mice. These mice also have varied levels of bacterial burden, and the shape of the immune response denotes disease severity. High bacterial load is associated with trademarks of innate immunity such as elevated neutrophil numbers, serum cytokine levels, and the dampened STAT signaling observed during bacterial challenge in chapter 2. In contrast, the mice that control infection are enriched for markers of adaptive T cell immunity: high numbers of TH1 effector T cells, T cell proliferation, ability to respond to cytokines, and fewer regulatory T cells. Therefore, a strong adaptive response is correlated with containing the infection, while an innate response is indicative of high bacterial levels. This thesis concludes in chapter 4, with a discussion of how the findings fit in the context of cell signaling in other disease states. Leukemia and lymphomas, diseases of uncontained cell growth, are characterized by hyperactive cell signaling. In contrast, an activated immune response, such as during auto-immunity or in cancer infiltrating T cells, is marked by repressed ability to respond to cytokines. As inhibited cytokine responses were also observed during bacterial challenge and during severe chronic infection, it appears that a commonality amongst disease that activate an immune response is negative feedback to dampen further signaling and restrict inflammation.

    Streptococci are Gram-positive bacteria that cause a wide spectrum of diseases, such as pharyngitis, necrotizing fasciitis and streptococcal toxic shock syndrome, as well as rheumatic fever and rheumatic heart disease as sequelae. Antibiotics alone have not been able to control the disease and in spite of many efforts an effective vaccine is not yet available. A prerequisite for novel and successful strategies for combating these bacteria is a complete understanding of the highly complex pathogenic mechanisms involved, which are analyzed in this volume. In ten chapters, prominent authors cover various aspects including streptococcal diseases and global burden, epidemiology, adaptation and transmission, and molecular mechanisms of different diseases, as well as sequelae, vaccine development and clinical management. This book will serve as a valuable reference work for scientists, students, clinicians and public health workers and provide new approaches to meeting the challenge of streptococcal diseases.

    "As she traces the medicalization of menopause over the past hundred years, historian Judith Houck challenges some widely held assumptions. Physicians hardly foisted hormones on reluctant female patients; rather, physicians themselves were often reluctant to claim menopause as a medical problem and resisted the widespread use of hormone therapy for what was, after all, a normal transition in a woman's lifespan. Houck argues that the medical and popular understandings of menopause at any given time depended on both pharmacological options and cultural ideas and anxieties of the moment. As women delayed marriage and motherhood and entered the workforce in greater numbers, the medical understanding, cultural meaning, and experience of menopause changed. By examining the history of menopause over the course of the twentieth century, Houck shows how the experience and representation of menopause has been profoundly influenced by biomedical developments and by changing roles for women and the changing definition of womanhood."--BOOK JACKET.

    An estimated 86.0 percent of American households were food secure throughout the entire year in 2014, meaning that they had access at all times to enough food for an active, healthy life for all household members. The remaining households (14.0 percent) were food insecure at least some time during the year, including 5.6 percent with very low food security, meaning that the food intake of one or more household members was reduced and their eating patterns were disrupted at times during the year because the household lacked money and other resources for food. The change in food insecurity overall from the prior year (from 14.3 percent in 2013) was not statistically significant. The cumulative decline in food insecurity from 2011 (14.9 percent) to 2014 (14.0 percent) was statistically significant. The prevalence rate of very low food security was essentially unchanged from 5.6 percent in 2013 and 5.7 percent in 2011 and 2012. Children and adults were food insecure in 9.4 percent of households with children in 2014, essentially unchanged from 9.9 percent in 2013 and 10.0 percent in 2011 and 2012. In 2014, the typical food-secure household spent 26 percent more on food than the typical food-insecure household of the same size and household composition. Sixty-one percent of all food-insecure households participated in one or more of the three largest Federal food and nutrition assistance programs during the month prior to the 2014 survey.

    Income is a driving force behind the striking health disparities that many minorities experience. In fact, although blacks and Hispanics have higher rates of disease than non-Hispanic whites, these differences are "dwarfed by the disparities identified between high- and low-income populations within each racial/ethnic group." That is, higher-income blacks, Hispanics, and Native Americans have better health than members of their groups with less income, and this income gradient appears to be more strongly tied to health than their race or ethnicity.

    "In this provocative book, Edward Shorter describes how in the 19th century patients with anxiety, fatigue and unable to sleep and obsess about the whole thing were considered "nervous," and when they lost control it was a "nervous breakdown." Then psychiatry turned its back on the whole concept of nerves, and--first under the influence of Freud's psychoanalysis and then the influence of the pharmaceutical industry--the diagnosis of depression took center stage. The result has been a scientific disaster, leading to the misdiagnosis and inappropriate treatment (with "antidepressants") of millions of patients. And with the new 5th edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DSM-5), the trend of inappropriate treatment is sure to continue. Urging that the diagnosis of depression be re-thought, this book turns a dramatic page in the understanding of psychiatric symptoms that are as common as the common cold. A gripping historical argument on psychiatric diagnosis and its flawed heritage and future."--Jacket.

    "Helminth infections are common, cause considerable pathology, and alter a host's immune profile. This can have important consequences not only on the host's ability to control a helminth infection, but also on their ability to control unrelated infections. In endemic areas, understanding how helminth infection influences the outcome of common infectious diseases and changes the efficacy of childhood vaccination programs is an important public health question. This book reviews how host immunity to helminths alters our ability to respond to the major pathogens that exist in helminth endemic regions. Current understanding of how helminths alter important but relatively neglected contributors to the host's anti-helminth immune responses are addressed, namely host antibody responses and how maternal infection may alter a child's immune development. These are discussed in relation to the control of helminth infection and unrelated infections. Also covered are how helminth infections alter the host's ability to control TB, HIV and malarial infections along with neglected bacterial infections, such as cholera, and how endemic helminth infections are likely to alter our ability to respond to life-saving vaccination strategies"--Publisher's description.

    Obesity, a condition characterized by excess adipose tissue, is becoming an important public health problem. Not only has the prevalence rate in adults risen steadily since the 1980's, obesity is a strong risk factor for the development of knee osteoarthritis (OA) and general mobility disability. There are currently no disease-modifying treatments for OA, so it is important to develop preventive strategies. However, we must first understand the mechanism of increased risk in the obese population. Knee cartilage and other joint structures respond both to mechanical loads during activities of daily living and to the biological environment within the joint, so the pathway to OA in the obese population therefore likely involves changes in both. The primary goal of this dissertation was to test the hypothesis that aging and obesity are linked to changes in gait mechanics and changes in the relationship between cartilage morphology and joint loads, and that these changes are consistent with increased knee OA risk. We also analyzed whether these changes are also observed in individuals with early asymptomatic knee joint degeneration. Finally, we tested the hypothesis that stair climbing requires adaptive changes that reflect a reduction in muscle strength in the aging obese population and indicate increased mobility disability risk. The results indicate that in obese, but not normal-weight individuals, age was associated with an increased adduction moment, which reflects increased loads on the medial compartment of the knee. Furthermore, the positive relationship between cartilage thickness and ambulatory load in young subjects was significantly weaker in middle-aged obese individuals. The increased OA risk in older obese individuals is therefore likely due to both an increase in ambulatory loads and to a change in the relationship between those ambulatory loads and cartilage properties due to the elevated pro-inflammatory cytokine levels characteristic of obesity. During stair climbing, middle-aged obese individuals also had lower peak knee flexion moments, indicative of quadriceps weakness due to aging and relative to their weight. Finally, the gait and stair climbing mechanics of individuals with early OA were not different from their age- and BMI-matched healthy counterparts, indicating that the gait alterations seen in healthy middle-aged obese individuals are the same as those in obese individuals who have already developed the disease, and are likely risk factors or early functional markers of OA.

    How the NIH Can Help You Get Funded takes a novel, non-formulaic approach in teaching readers how to "write a grant" -- and much more. The authors draw on their decades of experience working with both investigators and NIH personnel to anticipate their questions and concerns and help establish a comfortable, productive partnership between them. The authors advise readers on developing each component of the grant application in order of the components' influence on the final impact score. Individual funding mechanisms are reviewed along with grantsmanship tips specific to each. Readers learn the importance of reviewer-friendly formatting and organization of the text. The final chapters cover next steps after the application has been submitted-before, during, and after the review and funding decision. Strategies for resubmitting or repurposing applications are provided for those readers whose applications do not receive awards. The authors likewise anticipate the needs of readers who do receive funding but have questions on managing and maintaining their award. Amid ever-increasing competition for government research grants, How the NIH Can Help You Get Funded is an invaluable manual for how to pursue -- and sustain -- NIH funding.

    Stroke is a leading cause of death and disability throughout the world. Intravenous lytics and endovascular stroke treatment were demonstrated to be highly beneficial in clinical trials and in achieving net cost savings. However, time is of the essence in the management of stroke as for every minute that stroke is left untreated, an estimated 1.9 million neurons are destroyed. An optimized stroke pathway can dramatically impact patient outcome. Every medical service will differ.This book offers a concise and practical guide on how to set up and efficiently run an acute stroke service tailored to the needs of the individual center as a provider of primary, secondary, or tertiary care. It documents the essential knowledge on current imaging and treatment options and offers guidance in organizing a site-specific stroke pathway that will ensure the quickest possible provision of treatment, thereby optimizing benefit to the patient and maximizing cost-effectiveness. The authors played an integral part in the development and operation of one of Europe's most successful early stroke centers and also have experience of the factors that can undermine the creation of world-class stroke units. On this basis, they address the key aspects of the stroke pathway and explain how organizing this can reduce the number of severe outcomes by ensuring that appropriate steps are taken during the early moments after stroke when intervention can make a profound difference. The challenging, multidisciplinary nature of care is emphasized, and this handbook will be an invaluable source for every member of the stroke team, including doctors, nurses, stroke coordinators, emergency and rehabilitation providers as well as hospital administrators.

    Toxoplasma gondii is an obligate intracellular parasite. It has extraordinary abilities to infect virtually any warm blooded animal, cross a number of biological barriers (intestine, placenta and blood-brain), and invade any nucleated cell tested thus far in vitro. Chapter 1 provides a general introduction to Toxoplasma gondii and its ability to invade the host cell. Emphasis is placed on biological barriers and molecular mechanism of invasion for the different forms of the parasite. Chapter 2 describes a study of how Toxoplasma crosses the human placenta. Chapter 3 provides an insight as to how Enteric Glial Cells contribute to oral Toxoplasma infection in vivo. Chapter 4 deals with the study of how Toxoplasma sporozoites invade host cells. All research topics shed light on details of how Toxoplasma crosses the anatomical barriers: from the tissue barriers of placenta to infection to the possible immune and barrier functions of Enteric Glial Cells to how Toxoplasma sporozoites invade host cells. Chapter 2 describes experiments demonstrating that Toxoplasma tachyzoites invade the human placenta. These experiments used the human placental explant system to determine where the tachyzoites first invade, how they travel down the anchoring villi, and whether there exist type differences in ability to invade this tissue. This study provided several insights: (i) Toxoplasma tachyzoites are unable to penetrate the syncytium, and invade only the exposed tissue (anchoring villi); (ii) There does not appear to be a significant difference in the ability of different strains to infect the tissue. Chapter 3 addresses the possible role of TGF-[beta] by Enteric Glial Cells (EGCs) in oral Toxoplasma infection. Mice expressing a Dominant Negative TGF-[beta] receptor in EGCs were orally infected with Toxoplasma tissue cysts. At the end of the time trials, mice were sacrificed and their intestines subjected to histological analysis. Experiments did not reveal a clear-cut contribution to the control of inflammation by this cell type to the progress of disease. Chapter 4 examines the function of two paralogues of AMA1 and RON2 that are present exclusively in Toxoplasma sporozoites. Dubbed sporoAMA1 and sporoRON2, respectively, that sporoRON2 and sporoAMA1 form an exclusive pairing, stabilized with unique structural features. Furthermore, pre-treating sporozoites with a C-terminal portion of sporoRON2 (but not generic RON2) inhibits sporozoite invasion. We see sporoRON2 in a different compartment from RON4, suggesting that sporoRON2 functions independently of known moving junction components. These data indicate that sporozoites' host cell invasion is dependent on a novel, stage-specific version of the AMA1-RON2 pairing.

    Hughes Syndrome: Highways and Byways is a handy and easy-to-read guide to the main features of Hughes syndrome. There has been worldwide interest in this 'new' syndrome (first described in 1983). A clotting tendency which can potentially affect any organ in the body, it is: responsible for 1 in 5 recurrent miscarriages (now successfully treated with aspirin and heparin) responsible for 1 in 5 young (under 45) strokes a major cause of early heart attacks responsible for 1 in 5 deep vein thromboses an important cause of migraine.

    This textbook is specifically designed for upper-division undergraduate or graduate students in life science or pre-medical majors including dentistry or pharmacology, who are required to take a biochemistry or medical biochemistry course, but who are not necessarily biochemistry majors. The book adopts a unique approach to the topic compared with other biochemistry textbooks currently available, in that each biochemical subject is introduced by a human disease relating the biochemical principles to be developed in that chapter. The goal is to make biochemistry more meaningful to the student who is not normally shown the connection between biochemistry and medicine. This book: includes an abundance of figures; emphasizes human biochemistry; and introduces each chapter with a relevant disease or clinical relationship.

    This concise work on embryo transfer is yet another contribution to the persevering effort to disseminate latest information on the science and skill of performing a traumatic and successful embryo transfer. It is the most critical culmination of the assisted reproductive technology (ART) stimulation cycle, and a rate-limiting step in dictating the success of treatment. The well-worded chapters draw the reader's attention to significant aspects before initiating the actual embryo transfer, such as possible causes of failure at the embryo transfer stage, uterine evaluation, mock embryo transfer (ET), experience of the physician, and the use of ultrasound-guidance to monitor ET. The protocol for difficult transfers, variables that affect the success of ET, and the influence of the catheter used for ET have also been dealt with. The unique feature of this book is its pragmatic approach that can translate into solutions to the numerous frustrating ART failures that more often than not, may be attributed to an inefficient ET procedure. It helps the reader understand the integrity of embryo transfer, unravel its obvious simplicity and bridge the success between the several steps of ART. By highlighting the impeding problems associated with ET procedure and providing valid, scientific solutions, this stimulating edition will help the readers improve the ART success rates in their clinical practice. .

    Over the past decade there have been major advances in the field of regenerative medicine with the promise to bring to reality, cures for debilitating diseases such as diabetes, heart failure, and Parkinson's disease. Cellular products from a variety of sources are being evaluated for their ability to replace damaged tissue.Fetal tissues consist of stem cells and progenitor cells which have undergone initial commitment with varying states of differentiation. Stem cells from fetal tissues may also have a greater proliferative potential than their adult counterparts. In addition, fetal derived stem and progenitor cells are immunologically naive and some sources of fetal cells, eg cord blood, have been shown to be capable of crossing greater HLA mismatching resulting in less rejection and decreased immune mediated toxicities. Given the increasing focus on HES and advances in our basic knowledge of regenerative medicine it is an appropriate time to review the biology and use of fetal tissues.Human Fetal Tissue Transplantation is a timely publication that provides details of many aspects of the potential use of fetal tissues for therapeutic applications. As many tissues are wasted on a daily basis it appropriate to raise discussion on how to maximize access to discard tissue and at the same time engage in discussion of the ethics associated with fetal tissue procurement and clinical use.

    Although there have been extensive studies on the changes to the mouse hematopoietic system and the hematopoietic stem and progenitor cells during aging, this has not been as carefully looked at in humans. Understanding the changes in the human hematopoietic system that occur during normal aging will naturally be the basis of comparison for understanding the changes that occur in age-associated hematopoietic diseases, including anemia, myelodysplastic syndrome, and leukemia. In this dissertation, we provide evidence to suggest that, with age, human hematopoietic stem cells (HSC) increase in frequency and preferentially generate cells of the myeloid lineage, as opposed to the lymphoid lineage. This may be one of the reasons that myeloid disorders, such as those mentioned earlier, are common in the elderly population. In order to better characterize the cellular and molecular changes that occur in as well as mechanisms that may contribute to the pathogenesis of myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS), we compared hematopoietic stem and progenitor cell populations from MDS patients to those from healthy elderly individuals. We found that granulocyte-macrophage progenitors in the bone marrow were significantly reduced in MDS, reduction of ribosomal protein S6 in HSC causes an MDS-like phenotype, and cell surface markers can be to distinguish and separate HSC that are capable of normal hematopoiesis from HSC that are responsible for causing MDS. Collectively, the data from these experiments suggest that MDS is a disease that originates in HSC, and curing the disease will require the elimination of the MDS HSC.

    This new edition, like previous ones, offers a precise description of the anatomy of the human hippocampus based upon neurosurgical progress and the wealth of medical imaging methods available. The first part describes the fine structures of the hippocampus and is illustrated with new original figures. A survey is then provided of current concepts explaining the functions of the hippocampus, and the external and internal hippocampal vascularization is precisely described. The last and main part of the book presents serial sections in coronal, sagittal, and axial planes; each section is accompanied by a drawing to explain the MR 3T images. The new edition is also enriched by several MRI views of major hippocampal diseases. This comprehensive atlas of human hippocampal anatomy will be of interest to all neuroscientists, including neurosurgeons, neuroradiologists, and neurologists.

    "Human papillomavirus (HPV) infection transcends multiple fields of science and medicine. The management of HPV-related disease is demanding and often requires a persistent multimodal approach involving various medical disciplines. In this volume, experts present a comprehensive view of HPV research with an emphasis on clinical presentations, diagnosis, management and vaccine development. The state of the art in molecular biology is provided in addition to discussions on clinical morphology and the utility of dermatoscopy in identifying HPV disease. In a multidisciplinary approach to dermatological, plastic and reconstructive, gynecological, otolaryngological and colorectal management, different treatment strategies are highlighted"--Publisher's description.

    There is a critical, bidirectional relationship between sleep and cognition, yet the literature in this area is scattered and it is surprisingly difficult to find a comprehensive overview of the basic principles, latest discoveries, and outstanding challenges. This issue of Progress in Brain Research is spilt over 2 volumes bringing together cutting-edge research on the topic in the basic, clinical and applied sciences. The 2 volumes review current knowledge and understanding, provide a starting point for researchers and practitioners entering the field, and build a platform for further research.

    'An engaging, compelling and disturbing confrontation with evil...abook that will be transformative in its call for individual and collective moral responsibility." - Michael A. Grodin, M.D., Professor and Director, Project on Medicine andtheHolocaust, Elie Wiesel Center for Judaic Studies, Boston University Human Subjects Research after the Holocaust challenges you to confront the misguided medical ethics of the Third Reich personally, and to apply the lessons learned to contemporary human subjects research. While it is comforting to believe that Nazi physicians, nurses, and bioscientists were either incompetent, mad, or few in number, they were, in fact, the best in the world at the time, and the vast majority participated in the government program of 'applied biology.' They were not coerced to behave as they did-they enthusiastically exploited widely accepted eugenic theories to design horrendous medical experiments, gas chambers and euthanasia programs, which ultimately led to mass murder in the concentration camps. Americans provided financial support for their research, modeled their medical education and research after the Germans, and continued to perform unethical human subjects research even after the Nuremberg Doctors' Trial. The German Medical Association apologized in 2012 for the behavior of its physicians during the Third Reich. By examining the medical crimes of human subjects researchers during the Third Reich, you will naturally examine your own behavior and that of your colleagues, and perhaps ask yourself "If the best physicians and bioscientists of the early 20th century could do evil while believing they were doing good, can I be certain that I will never do the same?" · Presents relatively unknown aspects of human subjects research during the Third Reich · Reveals surprising relationships between German and American human subjects research · Dispels myths about Nazi human subjects research · Compels introspection and self-examination by today's medical and research practitioners · Addresses contemporary bioethical issues affecting vulnerable populations · Brings together experts in the history of medicine during the Third Reich and thoughtful new voices

    In this important reference work, Zeliger catalogs the known effects of chemical mixtures on the human body and also proposes a framework for understanding and predicting their actions in terms of lipophile (fat soluble) / hydrophile (water soluble) interactions. The author's focus is on illnesses that ensue following exposures to mixtures of chemicals that cannot be attributed to any one component of the mixture. In the first part the mechanisms of chemical absorption at a molecular and macromolecular level are explained, as well as the body's methods of defending itself against xenobiotic intrusion. Part II examines the sources of the chemicals discusssed, looking at air and water pollution, food additives, pharmaceuticals, etc. Part III, which includes numerous case studies, examines specific effects of particular mixtures on particular body systems and organs and presents a theoretical framework for predicting what the effects of uncharacterized mixtures might be. Part IV covers regulatory requirements and the need to adjust recommended exposure levels for products containing mixtures. It also contains recommendations on how to limit exposure to mixtures in the products we use and on how to limit release of mixtures into the environment. Providing brief summaries of each mixture and its effects, Zeliger provides a comprehensive reference, a jumping off point for professionals (with extensive chapter bibliographies) and an introduction to the topic for those studying traditional toxicology. Addressing many inadequately understood illnesses and conditions such as asthma, infertility and cancer, it will also be of interest to health professionals, environmental scientists and lawyers. Presents a theoretical framework for predicting the effects of chemical mixtures for which no specific data exists (this predictive aspect is important due to the vast number of different potential chemical combinations - far too many to comprehensively catalog). A quick and convenient source of hard to come by data on the rapidly developing field of chemical mixtures, for groups including chemists and engineers, toxicologists, health professionals and environmental scientists. . New and updated material comprises over 30% of this timely new edition, which includes the latest research data alongside an expanded introduction to the science and art of predicting the toxicological properties of chemical mixtures.

    Inadequate humidification of inspired gases can cause a variety of serious problems, and humidification has accordingly become an important aspect of modern intensive care medicine. The array of available devices is now formidable, and appropriate advice on their use is essential. Accordingly, this book is designed to serve as a practical guide for clinicians, providing information on the theoretical background of humidification, the equipment, and its optimal application.The book starts by examining the physiological basis of humidification. Current devices are then discussed, with careful attention to factors influencing their performance and methods to evaluate their effectiveness. The two scenarios of mechanical and non-mechanical ventilation are considered, and the issue of ventilator-associated pneumonia is addressed in detail. Further chapters focus on such topics as humidification following tracheostomy, humidification of the artificial airway during secretion management, measurement of inspired gas temperature in the ventilated neonate, and humidification in the home care setting.This unique monograph on the current techniques of humidification and their indications has been written by internationally acclaimed experts and will prove of great value to practitioners.

    Timbre, or the quality of sound, is a fundamental attribute of sound. It is important in differentiating between musical sounds, speech utterances, everyday sounds in our environment, and novel synthetic sounds. This dissertation presents quantitative and perceptually valid metrics for sound color and density, where sound color denotes an instantaneous (or atemporal) spectral energy distribution, and density denotes the fine-scale temporal attribute of sound. In support of the proposed metrics, a series of psychoacoustic experiments was performed. The quantitative relationship between the spectral envelope and subjective perception of complex tones was investigated using Mel-frequency cepstral coefficients (MFCC) as a representation of sound color. The experiments consistently showed that the MFCC model provides a linear and orthogonal coordinate space for human perception of sound color. The statistics for all twelve MFCC were similar at average correlation (R-squared or R2) of 85%, suggesting that each MFCC contains perceptually important information. The regression coefficients did suggest, however, the lower-order Mel-cepstrum coefficients may be more important in human perception than the higher-order coefficients. The quantitative relationship between the fine-scale temporal attribute and subjective perception of noise-like stimuli was investigated using normalized echo density (NED). Regardless of the sound color of the noise-like stimuli, the absolute difference in NED showed a strong correlation to the perceived dissimilarity with R2 of 93% on average. The other experiments showed that NED could represent the density perception in a consistent and robust manner across bandwidths--static noise-like stimuli having similar NED values were perceived as similar regardless of their bandwidth. Overall, with these experiments, NED showed a strong linear correlation to human perception of density, along with robustness in estimating the perceived density across various bandwidths, demonstrating that NED is a promising model for density perception. The elusive nature of timbre description has been a barrier to music analysis, speech research, and psychoacoustics. It is hoped that the metrics presented in this dissertation will form the basis of a quantitative model of timbre perception.

    "Hydatid disease, a zoonotic infection caused by a tapeworm of the genus Echinococcus, has been encountered in various organs in humans. In spite of all the advances in imaging techniques and therapeutic methods, hydatidosis of the central nervous system is still a life-threatening condition in infested areas of the world. Geographical regions affected include the Middle East, Mediterranean countries, South America, Central and Eastern Europe, South Africa, India, and Australia. This is the first comprehensive reference book on hydatidosis of the central nervous system. It is written and edited by leading international authorities from infested areas and provides an in-depth review of diagnosis and management of the disease. Clinical and neuroradiological findings are extensively documented with the aid of numerous original photographs, and the role of surgical intervention and chemotherapy is carefully appraised. In addition to the provision of detailed current evidence, future avenues and innovative therapeutic philosophies are discussed. This book will serve as an ideal source of up-to-date information for all with an interest in this debilitating disease."--Publisher's website.

    The metabolism of sulfur especially by sulfurtransferases had been intensively studied in mid 1900s. Three enzymes, cystathionine synthase (CBS), cystathionine lyase (CSE) and 3-mercaptopyruvate sulfurtransferase (3MST) were found to have the capacity to produce H2S in vitro. However, H2S was recognized simply as a by-product of the metabolic pathways or as a marker for evaluating the activity of enzymes rather than as a physiological active molecule. In the late 1980s relatively high concentrations of sulfide were measured in the brain that led to the successive studies of identifying the physiological functions of H2S. Recently, the steady-state concentrations of H2S have been re-evaluated and found to be much less than that initially measured. However, despite these differences, such re-evaluations served to further confirm the existence of H2S in mammalian tissues. H2S is produced in almost every organ and plays various roles such as neuromodulation, vasodilation, insulin release, inflammation, angiogenesis and cytoprotection. The unregulated production of H2S and improper responses of target molecules are involved in the pathogenesis of various diseases. This book focuses on these topics as well as on the recent progress in the biology and the therapeutic development of this molecule.

    "Malpractice settlements are large for undetected hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine toxicity which, if untreated, can lead to permanent loss of central vision. Knowledge of the ocular toxicity of these drugs has increased during the past fifty years as their use has expanded. Hydroxychloroquine and Chloroquine Retinopathy is the first single-source book on the subject and is essential for the practicing ophthalmologists, rheumatologists, dermatologists, and internists who prescribe these drugs. It covers clinical topics such as signs and symptoms of toxicity, toxicity screening, ancillary testing, to whom and why the drugs are prescribed and dosing considerations. Additionally, the book addresses practice management considerations, including coding, reimbursement and equipment costs, and the medico-legal responsibilities of the rheumatologist and of the ophthalmologist. Guidelines for the management of hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine vary around the world and differences between the guidelines of the United Kingdom, the United States, and other countries are identified. The book concludes with a collection of case examples illustrating common clinical scenarios and their management. This book is a “must-have” resource for physicians who use these drugs."--Publisher's website.

    Srihari S. Naidu, editor ; foreword by Bernard Gersh and historical context by Eugene Braunwald.
    This book provides a comprehensive clinical review of Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy (HCM), the most common genetic disorder of the heart characterized by dysfunctional contractility at the sarcomere level, resulting in the development of abnormal and occasionally focal hypertrophy on a macroscopic level. Editor, Srihari S. Naidu, has brought together a world renowned group of experts to review various different topics but, with a practical focus that will enable readers to establish the evidence-based best practice in any potential scenario. Treatment modalities including medications, pacemakers and defibrillators, and invasive septal reduction therapy (both surgical myectomy and alcohol septal ablation) will be discussed. Chapters on genetics, family screening, lifestyle concerns, and athletic screening have additionally been added given the ongoing controversies and differences of opinion on many of these issues. Each chapter within Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy begins with key points of knowledge and ends with clinical pearls that have not previously been disseminated to the wider community. The practical approach of the entire book continues with dedicated chapters on creating a Center of Excellence, including how to facilitate the multi-disciplinary approach, and on case-based reviews and discussions allowing readers to further understand how to integrate the knowledge gained from each chapter into the comprehensive and longitudinal care of the individual patient and family. The last chapter takes the reader through the management of actual patients, showing over decades the nuances to diagnosis and management and the sometimes abrupt changes in the course of their diseases that necessitate correspondingly abrupt modifications in treatment. This book will be an essential text for Trainees, Fellows, Residents and board-certified physicians in cardiology, interventional cardiology, cardiac surgery, cardiac imaging, sports medicine, paediatric cardiology, genetics and genetic counselling, and electrophysiology.

    Hypoparathyroidism, a condition in which insufficient parathyroid hormone (PTH) is produced to maintain normocalcemia is associated with a variety of acute and chronic symptoms and complications due to hypocalcemia. Replacement therapy utilizing PTH has long been awaited, and this book is new and very timely as it coincides with the ℗ℓpublication of results on the role of the PTH molecule in the pharmacological management of this disorder. This advance is sparking renewed interest in hypoparathyroidism, which is attributable to neck surgery in most cases and to inherited disorders in a minority. Hypoparathyroidism has been written by acknowledged experts in the field and provides essential, up-to-date information on the pathology, diagnosis, and treatment of the condition. It opens by addressing in detail the anatomy and physiology of the parathyroids and describing the epidemiology and clinical presentation of hypoparathyroidism. The full range of hypoparathyroid disorders are then discussed, including the various genetic forms, postoperative hypoparathyroidism, and other forms of acquired hypoparathyroidism. Individual chapters focus on refractory disease, the impact of the condition on bone, and the management of acute hypocalcemia. Both conventional treatment for hypoparathyroidism and the novel replacement therapy with PTH ℗ℓpeptides are then thoroughly examined. Pseudohypoparathyroidism is also extensively discussed, with information on the various forms, differential diagnosis, and genetic testing. This book will be of interest to all endocrinologists, and also to surgeons and internal medicine physicians. ℗ℓ
