- 2012 SpringerYoshiharu Takayama."Lactoferrin was first identified as an iron-binding glycoprotein abundantly found in milk. It has been considered to play important roles in host defense, since lactoferrin shows broad spectrum of anti-bacterial and anti-viral activities, arising from its iron-chelating property. Furthermore, lactoferrin can regulate the function of innate and adaptive immune cells and exhibits immuno-modulating properties. These activities of lactoferrin implicate that potential use of lactoferrin as a wound healing agent. In addition, this book shows that lactoferrin is a potent regulator of dermal fibroblasts and epidermal keratinocytes, and promotes skin or corneal epithelial wound healing by increasing their proliferation, migration or deposition of extracellular matrix (ECM) components such as collagen and hyaluronan. This book provides the scientific background on use of lactoferrin as a wound healing agent. Indeed, lactoferrin exerts its biological effects by binding to specific lactoferrin receptors on target cells. This book also covers the in-depth information on roles of lactoferrin as a signaling molecule."--Publisher's website.
- 2010Jared Starman.Cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT), which uses much of the same hardware as traditional 2-D x-ray fluoroscopy, is now being used during patient treatment. The ability to perform CBCT scans has been driven by the development of amorphous silicon (a-Si) digital flat-panel (FP) x-ray detector technology. These detectors were originally designed for radiography and fluoroscopy, but because of their compactness, flexibility, low spatial distortion, and relative low-cost, are also practical for CBCT. One factor limiting the CBCT image quality for a-Si x-ray detectors is detector lag, stemming from charge trapping in the a-Si layer. Lag is defined as residual signal present in the detector, and can lead to a range of image artifacts in CBCT reconstructions, such as severe image shading for elliptical or off-center objects that could potentially obscure anatomy of interest. Current lag correction methods for a-Si FP detectors assume that the detector is linear and time invariant (LTI) and determine a temporal impulse response for the system. The detector output is deconvolved with the measured impulse response to compute the lag-corrected data. However a conventional FP is neither linear nor time invariant. Different techniques for measuring the FP impulse response are examined, as well as their effect on the final CBCT image reconstruction. A range of results are achieved by the different techniques, highlighting the non-linearity and time variance of the system. A novel non-LTI algorithm is then presented that better describes the x-ray detector dynamics, gives exposure independent results, and provides significant error reduction in CBCT for large objects where lag artifacts are most severe. A second method to reduce lag based on a hardware change to the a-Si detector is also described in this dissertation. The photodiode at each detector pixel is briefly operated in a forward bias mode to maintain saturation of charge trap states. Detector measurements and CBCT scans with and without the detector forward biasing are made to show image improvement and the trade-offs of using the hardware method.

- 2013edited by Michael A. Arbib."This book explores the relationships between language, music, and the brain by pursuing four key themes and the crosstalk among them: song and dance as a bridge between music and language; multiple levels of structure from brain to behavior to culture; the semantics of internal and external worlds and the role of emotion; and the evolution and development of language. The book offers specially commissioned expositions of current research accessible both to experts across disciplines and to non-experts. These chapters provide the background for reports by groups of specialists that chart current controversies and future directions of research on each theme." -- [Publisher-supplied data]

- 2014 SpringerFerdinando Agresta, Fabio Cesare Campanile, Nereo Vettoretto, editors."his book, written by expert surgeons, offers a comprehensive and up-to-date overview of all aspects of laparoscopic cholecystectomy. Coverage includes the indications for surgery, anesthesia, establishment of pneumoperitoneum, surgical technique, and the prevention and management of complications. Performance of laparoscopic cholecystectomy in the specific contexts of biliary tree stones and acute cholecystitis is described. Extensive reference is made to the latest clinical evidence, and the real benefits of the laparoscopic approach, for example in terms of outcomes and day surgery, are carefully assessed. New technologies, including SILS, NOTES, robotic surgery, and miniaturized instruments, are reviewed. The learning curve and training are also extensively discussed, and an individual chapter is devoted to the views of international experts in the field. Some 20 years after the National Institutes of Health Consensus Conference first published recommendations regarding indications for laparoscopic cholecystectomy, it remains the gold standard approach and continues to evolve."--Publisher's website.

I developed a method that utilizes barcoding to enable high-throughput sequencing of paired heavy-chain and light-chain immunoglobulin sequences. This approach enables us to generate dendrograms of functional affinity-matured antibody responses, and express selected antibodies for functional characterization. This method was applied to a human who received an influenza vaccine, humans with Staphylocuccus aureus infection, a human with rhuematoid arthritis, an autoimmune disease, and a human who has lung adenocarcinoma, and is a long term non-progressor. These are examples in vaccination, infection, autoimmune disease and cancer, respectively. In each case, we show that we were able to obtain paired heavy and light chain sequences. We expressed selected antibodies for functional characterization and showed that we were able to obtain functional antibodies that bound to target antigens in each of the above indications. Furthermore, we also showed that large clonal families dominate in influenza vaccination, and that larger antibody clonal families have higher binding affinities. Taken together, the approach provides a method to directly characterize functional antibody responses that could advance our understanding of protective and pathogenic immune responses in health and disease.

- 2011 SpringerZvi Laron, John J. Kopchick, editors.Laron syndrome (LS), or primary growth hormone (GH) insensitivity, was first described in 1966. Since then, many patients worldwide have been diagnosed with LS, which involves defects in the GH receptor that cause combined congenital deficiency of GH and IGF-I activities. In this comprehensive book the authors draw upon 50 years of multidisciplinary clinical and investigative follow-up of the large Israeli cohort of LS patients. The genetic basis of the syndrome is fully considered, and all aspects of the pathophysiology of IGF-I deficiency are described. Data derived from the recently generated mouse model of LS are reviewed and compared with the human LS experience. Valuable advice is provided on treatment, and treatment effects, such as metabolic effects, adipose tissue alterations, and impact on aging, are fully explored. Together, this book condenses, consolidates, compares, and contrasts data derived from the human and mouse LS experiences and provides a unique resource for clinical and basic scientists to evaluate and compare IGF-I and GH actions.

Recently, new approaches have been introduced for more selective targeting of various retinal layers, including patterned scanning photocoagulation, selective retinal therapy, and sub-lethal treatment. Despite its broad use in clinical practice, there remains a need for the quantitative description of laser-tissue interactions involved in retinal phototherapy. A unified description of various treatment regimes and associated mechanisms of tissue damage would allow for optimization of laser parameters to improve selectivity and safety of retinal photocoagulation, and for avoidance of undesirable collateral damage. The presented work describes an investigation into the dynamics of the retinal response to hyperthermia and vaporization. A finite-element computational model of photocoagulation and rupture was constructed based on experimental measurements of laser interactions with tissue, and verified in vivo in the millisecond time domain. Two approaches towards improvement of tissue heating uniformity were studied: spatial and temporal modulation of the treatment beam. After optimization using the computational model, beam shaping and pulse modulation systems were constructed. Experimental studies in vivo confirmed improvements in safety of the retinal treatment, potentially allowing for reductions in treatment time, thermal damage extent, and perceived pain. In addition, tissue response to sub-lethal thermal stress in the retina was explored using expression of heat shock protein in an animal model. Computational modeling of the corresponding treatment regime demonstrated that a similar response is likely to occur in clinical application of sub-lethal exposures. Photo-mechanical interactions in the retina were investigated in model systems and in vivo with microsecond-range exposures. The dominant mechanisms of tissue damage were identified and the corresponding limits of the safe therapeutic window were computed over a broad range of pulse durations - from microseconds to seconds. An understanding of the thermal and mechanical interactions involved in laser heating of the retina allows for the realization of safer and more selective treatment regimes. All three mechanisms investigated in the current study -- photocoagulation, photomechanical interactions and sub-lethal hyperthermia -- play a role in clinical treatment. The developed quantitative models of these interactions have immediate applicability to clinical practice, providing guidance towards optimization of retinal phototherapy, evaluation of retinal safety, and development of new clinical applications.

In the mid-1980s, an independent group of anthropologists formed in Argentina to exhume the anonymous graves of "disappeared" victims of state repression. Since then, a number of human rights organizations have built on this model, assembling teams of forensic anthropologists, archaeologists, pathologists, geneticists, and other experts capable of documenting evidence of war crimes and identifying dead victims. In the 1990s, after genocidal violence erupted in both Rwanda and the disintegrating Yugoslavia, international tribunals called upon forensic experts from Latin America, the United States, and Europe to exhume mass graves in both countries, making the forensic investigation of human rights violations a global project. Since then, expectations have steadily grown among survivor communities, as well as international institutions and observers, that mass graves will be exhumed, evidence gathered, and bodies identified. Using case studies from Argentina, the former Yugoslavia, Poland, Spain, and other post-conflict nations, as well as reports, articles, memoirs, and interviews with forensic experts, this dissertation paints a detailed portrait of the purposes international forensic investigations serve. Courts and tribunals, transitional governments, victims' families and other mourners all have different stakes in discovering the truths buried in mass graves, and thus place different expectations and demands on forensic teams. This complex landscape of stakeholders has added a whole new set of priorities to the traditional conception of forensics as science used in the service of the law: among them the "humanitarian" effort to discover the fate of missing persons and return their bodies to families, the construction of an objective and scientific historical narrative, and training local forensic experts and authorities to deal with the legacy of violence. Yet forensic teams have also met with fierce objections from some families of the missing and other communities around mass graves. These objections pose a challenge to the universalism of global forensic investigation--the idea that forensic science can serve the same purposes in every post-conflict setting. However, a detailed study of the specific arguments behind these challenges can create opportunities to develop clearer explanations of what forensic investigations accomplish, as well as foster more nuanced and democratic interactions with local stakeholders. In its final chapters, the dissertation pursues a new dimension of ethical inquiry, asking what forensic investigations do for the dead victims of atrocity. Drawing on various approaches from political and moral theory, it first explores the ethical framework most familiar to international forensic teams: human rights. Human rights are a powerful language for describing the violations that have been inflicted on the now-dead victims, as well as the claims of living mourners. As a description of the guarantees that can be made to dead bodies, however, they overreach. Dead bodies can, however, be cared for in various ways, even when they are unidentified or incomplete. Many of the practices of forensic experts are already directed towards this care-giving relationship with the dead, an intimate and powerful attempt to reestablish the connections between their bodies, possessions, and their mourners, as well as to reverse the effects of violence upon them.

Even in the early 2000s with but a handful of genomes available, it became clear that the nature of microorganisms is full of genetic exchange between lineages that are sometimes far apart. The years following this saw an explosion of genomic data, which shook the "tree of life" and also raised doubts about the most appropriate species concepts for prokaryotes. This book represents the manyfold contributions of LGT to the evolution of micro and, to an extent, macroorganisms by focusing on the areas where it has the largest impact: metabolic innovations and adaptations and speciation."

- 2010Christopher Scott Hemphill.This dissertation examines the law and economics of generic drug entry, and the problems that arise from specific U.S. regulatory arrangements that govern innovation and competition in the market for patented pharmaceuticals. As Chapter 1 explains, competitive entry by generic drug makers is limited by both patents and industry-specific regulation, which together provide the means for brand-name drug makers to avoid competition and thereby recoup large investments in research, development, and testing. At the same time, the complex rules of the Hatch-Waxman Act furnish a pathway by which generic drug makers may challenge the validity or scope of brand-name patents, with a view to entering the market with a competing product prior to patent expiration. The subsequent chapters examine several aspects of the competitive interaction between brand-name and generic drug makers. Chapter 2 analyzes settlements of patent litigation between brand-name and generic drug makers, in which the brand-name firm pays the generic firm in exchange for delayed market entry. Such pay-for-delay settlements are an important, unresolved question in U.S. antitrust policy. The analysis reveals that the pay-for-delay settlement problem is more severe than has been commonly understood. Several specific features of the Act--in particular, a 180-day bounty granted to certain generic drug makers as an incentive to pursue pre-expiration entry--widen the potential for anticompetitive harm from pay-for-delay settlements, compared to the usual understanding. In addition, I show that settlements are "innovation inefficient" as a means of providing profits and hence ex ante innovation incentives to brand-name drug makers. To the extent that Congress established a preferred tradeoff between innovation and competition when it passed the Act, settlements that implement a different, less competition-protective tradeoff are particularly problematic from an antitrust standpoint. Chapter 3 synthesizes available public information about pay-for-delay settlements in order to offer a new account of the extent and evolution of settlement practice. The analysis draws upon a novel dataset of 143 such settlements. The analysis uncovers an evolution in the means by which a brand-name firm can pay a generic firm to delay entry, including a variety of complex "side deals" by which a brand-name firm can compensate a generic firm in a disguised fashion. It also reveals several novel forms of regulatory avoidance. The analysis in the chapter suggests that, as a matter of institutional choice, an expert agency is in a relatively good position to conduct the aggregate analysis needed to identify an optimal antitrust rule. Chapter 4 examines the co-evolution of increased brand-name patenting and increased generic pre-expiration challenges. It draws upon a second novel dataset of drug approvals, applications, patents, and other drug characteristics. Its first contribution is to chart the growth of patent portfolios and pre-expiration challenges. Over time, patenting has increased, measured by the number of patents per drug and the length of the nominal patent term. During the same period, challenges have increased as well, and drugs are challenged sooner, relative to brand-name approval. The analysis shows that brand-name sales, a proxy for the profitability of the drug, have a positive effect on the likelihood of generic challenge, consistent with the view that patents that later prove to be valuable receive greater ex post scrutiny. The likelihood of challenge also varies by patent type and timing of expiration. Conditional on sales and other drug characteristics, drugs with weaker patents, particularly those that expire later than a drug's basic compound patent, face a significantly higher likelihood of challenge. Though the welfare implications of Hatch-Waxman patent challenge provisions are complicated, these results suggest these challenges serve a useful purpose, in promoting scrutiny of low quality and late-expiring patents.

- 2011 ScienceDirectPaul Mushak.The book presents a detailed assessment of the health science of lead and the human health risk assessment models for lead's human health impacts, followed by an account of various regulatory efforts in the United States and elsewhere to eliminate or reduce human toxic exposures to lead. The science of lead as presented here covers releases of lead into the environment, lead's movement through the environment to reach humans who are then exposed, and the spectrum of toxic effects, particularly low-level toxic effects, on the developing central nervous system of the very young child. The section on human health risk assessment deals with quantifying not only the dose-response relationships that underlie toxic responses to lead in sensitive populations but also with the likelihood of toxic responses vis-vis environmental lead at some level of exposure. This section includes a treatment of computer models of lead exposure, particularly those that use lead in whole blood as a key measure. Various models convert lead intake via various body compartments into measures of body lead burden. Such measures are then directly related to severity of injury. The final section of the book deals with past and present regulatory efforts to control lead releases into the human environment. Current control efforts present a mixed picture. The most problematic issue is the continued presence of lead paint in older housing and lead in soils of urban and mining industry communities. Comprehensive assessment of the three major facets of the public health problem of lead: the voluminous science, the risk assessment approaches, and approaches to controlling lead as a public health problem. Integration of the above three elements to provide a coherent whole Provides a single source of information that will be extremely valuable to all professionals working in areas impacted by this toxic substance.
