- 2011 Springeredited by Pnina Brodt.Liver metastases are a frequent and often fatal occurrence in cancer patients, particularly those with malignancies of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract. While recent improvements in surgical techniques and a more aggressive approach to resection of liver metastases have improved long term survival for some patients, most patients with hepatic metastases still succumb to their disease. To improve these dismal statistics, a better understanding of the biology of liver metastasis, particularly the early stages that can be targeted for prevention, is essential. Once cancer cells enter the liver, several different scenarios may occur. The cancer cells may be immediately destroyed by local defence mechanisms, they may enter a state of dormancy as solitary cells and never produce a metastasis, initiate a short-lived process of proliferation that is aborted before a metastasis is established or actively proliferate to form macrometastases. The chapters in Part I of this book provide insight into the cellular/molecular mechanisms that determine which of these scenarios prevails. Written by experts researchers in the filed of metastasis, these chapters provide state-of-the art reviews on the cellular and molecular processes that impact the early stages of the metastatic process. The unique microenvironment of the liver, its various anatomical, cellular and molecular features and the impact they have on metastasis are highlighted. In addition, the role of inflammation (pre-existing and tumor-induced), host innate and adaptive immune responses, cytokines, chemokines, growth factors and the unique molecular signatures of metastatic tumor cells are reviewed with an underscoring of the translational implications of the current state of knowledge. Against this background, the chapters in Part II of the book provide critical reviews on major aspects of the clinical management of hepatic metastases. These include imaging strategies, surgical and chemotherapeutic treatment approaches and the use of targeted biological therapeutics such as anti-angiogenic drugs as treatment modalities. By combining information on biological and clinical aspects of liver metastasis, this volume will serve as an excellent resource for scientists, clinicians, clinician/ scientists and trainees in the domains of oncology, surgical oncology, hepatobiliary physiology and radiology.

- 2010Won Jae Lee.Use of hydrogels as a scaffold material for engineered tissues has been of increasing interest due to their structural similarity to the extracellular components in the body. Photopolymerizable poly(ethylene glycol) (PEG) is one of the most extensively utilized hydrogels, because its network structure can be easily modified to mimic critical aspects of the original microenvironments and its patternability by photolithography or microfluidic devices allows microarchitectures to guide cells' behavior with respect to morphology, cytoskeletal structure, and functionality. However, due to its complicated microenvironments designed to perform the broad range of hepatic functions, development of an engineered liver tissue has been challenging. The three aspects of tissue's microenvironments, which were critical to design PEG-based engineered livers, were addressed. The first aspect was to understand interaction between the PEG network and incorporated cells. Even though the survivability of encapsulated cells was known to depend on diffusion conditions, insufficient understanding of the structure of cell-encapsulated PEG networks has limited development of new networks with improved permeability to support metabolic activities of encapsulated cells. Since network defects have been identified as up to orders of magnitude larger than the mesh size, we suggest that the level of network defects is a primary determinant of hydrogel permeability and its consequent ability to support metabolic activities of encapsulated cells. We therefore sought a way to purposefully augment the network defects by incorporating hydrophobic poly(lactic-co-glycolic acid) (PLGA) nanoparticles, which induce loose crosslinking at the particle-PEG interface. The efficiency of the proposed design strategy was verified by the improved viability and hepatic functions of encapsulated human liver-derived cells. The second aspect was to recapitulate key aspects of tissue architecture. In the liver, and many other tissues also, different types of cells distribute with specific configurations and their interactions are of fundamental importance in physiology, pathophysiology, cancer, developmental biology, and wound healing. In this study, we sought a novel method to guide cells' spatial displacement by applying soft lithography. We first verified that our new network design has the improved permeability without compensating the patternability. Due to the structural advantages, we demonstrated that our simplified patterning process avoided negative influence to encapsulated cell viability and allowed reliable control over distribution of incorporated cells. The third aspect was to provide a platform to reliably provide biological factors to encapsulated cells in PEG matrices. Because most biomolecules easily lose their therapeutic potency and have specific plasma levels for optimal clinical efficacies, drug delivery systems have been designed to deploy medications intact through a protective medium that can also control the rate of drug release. In this system, we utilized PLGA particles, which were used to improve the permeability, as drug carriers. However, due to the complexity of the release mechanism and the complicated interplay between various design parameters of the release medium, detailed prediction of the resulting release profile is a challenge. Herein we suggest a simple method to target specific release profiles more efficiently by integrating release profiles for an array of different microsphere types. This scheme is based on our observation that the resulting release profile from a mixture of different samples can be predicted as the linear summation of the individually measured release profiles of each sample. Hence, by employing a linear equation at each time point and formulating them as a matrix equation, we could determine how much of each microsphere type to include in a mixture in order to have a specific release profile. In accordance with this method, several targeted release profiles were successfully obtained.

Representatives of the transplant community convened for a meeting on living donation in an effort to provide guidelines to promote the welfare of living donors. The consensus statement that resulted from this meeting recommended that transplant centers retain an Independent Living Donor Advocate (ILDA) to focus on the best interest of the donor. Over a decade later, nearly every transplant center in the United States, performing living donor surgeries, has incorporated an ILDA into their living donor screening and/or evaluation process, however there are no guidelines with regard to the ILDA's qualifications, clinical practice, or how address ethical challenges.

Nearly nine-in-ten adults surveyed say that "having more elderly people in the population" is either a good thing for society (41%) or does not make much difference (47%). Just 10% see this trend as a bad thing.

By the late 1950s, tens of thousands of Americans had been lobotomized as treatment for a host of psychiatric disorders. Though the procedure would later be decried as devastating and grossly unscientific, many patients, families, and physicians reported veritable improvement from the surgery; some patients were even considered cured. 'The Lobotomy Letters' gives an account of why this controversial procedure was sanctioned by psychiatrists and doctors of modern medicine. Drawing from original correspondence penned by lobotomy patients and their families as well as from the professional papers of lobotomy pioneer and neurologist Walter Freeman, the volume reconstructs how physicians, patients, and their families viewed lobotomy and analyzes the reasons for its overwhelming use." -- [Publisher-supplied data]

Ruffner, Jr., Naomi Aronson.OBJECTIVES: We prepared this report on the comparative effectiveness and harms of lung-directed nonsurgical therapies for non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) in three distinct patient populations: (1) patients with stage I NSCLC who are not surgical candidates (Key Question 1), (2) patients with stage I NSCLC who are deemed operable but decline surgery (Key Question 2), and (3) patients with endoluminal NSCLC causing obstruction (Key Question 3). For stage I NSCLC, the local nonsurgical interventions could include conformal radiotherapy modalities and radiofrequency ablation (RFA). For patients with airway obstruction due to an endoluminal NSCLC, local nonsurgical interventions could include those for the stage I setting, as well as conventional wide-field radiotherapy, brachytherapy, laser and mechanical debridement, endoluminal stents, cryoablation, and photodynamic therapy. Surgical resection of any type is not considered as a comparator for any of the Key Questions. DATA SOURCES: MEDLINE(r), Embase(r), and the Cochrane Controlled Trials Registry were searched from January 1, 1995, to July 25, 2012. A search of the gray literature included databases with regulatory information, clinical trial registries, abstracts and conference papers, and information from manufacturers. REVIEW METHODS: We sought studies reporting overall survival, cancer-specific survival, local control, symptom relief, adverse events, and quality of life among our populations of interest. Data were abstracted for each Key Question by a team of reviewers, with independent data verification. Study quality and the risk of bias of randomized controlled trials (RCTs) were assessed using the United States Preventive Services Task Force criteria. The quality and risk of bias of single-arm studies were assessed using the Carey and Boden criteria. The strength of the body of evidence was assessed according to the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality Methods Guide. RESULTS: In our searches, we identified 4,648 unique titles and screened 1,178 in full text. Of the latter, 55 met the inclusion criteria. Thirty-five studies were relevant to Key Question 1, considering medically inoperable patients with stage I NSCLC; 6 were relevant to Key Question 2, considering medically operable patients with stage I NSCLC who decline surgery; and 17 were relevant to Key Question 3, considering patients with inoperable endoluminal NSCLC causing symptoms of obstruction. Three studies addressed both Key Questions 1 and 2. All studies relevant to Key Questions 1 and 2 were single-arm design, prospective (n=15), retrospective (n=21), or not specified (n=2). Among 17 papers included for Key Question 3, 5 were RCTs, 1 was a nonrandomized comparative study, and 11 were single-arm studies. Because comparative study evidence on RFA and debridement and stenting was unavailable for Key Question 3, we included evidence from two single-arm studies involving stents and one on RFA. All RCTs were of poor quality. Only one comparison was available per study, with no two studies examining the same set of interventions. Outcomes of therapy for all Key Questions included overall survival, adverse effects, and quality of life. CONCLUSIONS: Evidence on localized nonsurgical therapies for patients with stage I NSCLC who are not surgical candidates or who decline surgery consists only of single-arm studies, with no direct comparisons among interventions. The best evidence for NSCLC patients with endoluminal obstruction consists of poor-quality single RCTs for each comparison; we did not identify evidence that permitted us to draw conclusions based on indirect comparisons. Overall, evidence is insufficient to permit conclusions on the comparative effectiveness of local nonsurgical therapies for inoperable or operable patients with stage I NSCLC or inoperable NSCLC patients with endoluminal tumor causing pulmonary symptoms.
- 2015 SpringerWillm Uwe Kampen, Manfred Fischer, editor.This book presents a systematic survey of different local treatments in inflammatory joint diseases and their potential side effects and complications. Both surgical therapies and pharmaceutical strategies involving local or systemic application of anti-inflammatory and immunomodulating drugs are addressed. Special emphasis is placed on nuclear medicine therapy by intra-articular instillation of beta radiation emitters, known as radiosynoviorthesis or radiation synovectomy. Possible complications, in particular radionecrosis, infection, and thromboembolism, are described and available treatment strategies are examined in detail. In addition, radiation safety considerations are critically reviewed and relevant clinical questions are discussed. While radiosynoviorthesis is an effective and safe treatment if a proper indication is secured and if the application is performed by an experienced nuclear medicine physician, local complications can never be excluded with certainty. This book will support physicians who are engaged in the care and treatment of patients with inflammatory joint disease, approximately 30,000 of whom undergo radiosynoviorthesis in Europe each year. .
- 2011Peter Leader Lee.Membrane trafficking is an essential process that enables cells to deliver proteins to the extracellular space and segregate proteins into different compartments. Several steps are necessary for the functional segregation and processing of proteins. Trafficking includes post-translational modification of proteins, their movement between compartments, and stable localization once they have reached their target destinations. Importantly, membrane trafficking represents a recursively-sustained system: proteins that play a role in the regulation of membrane trafficking must also be properly transported and localized. Chapter one introduces the importance of the Golgi in the sorting and packaging of proteins and the roles of molecular motors in facilitating individual transport events. To modify transported cargoes, Golgi resident glycosyltransferases need to be localized to the correct cisternae and in some cases, in correct complex with other glycosyltransferases. "Kin recognition", the association of enzymatically compatible glycosyltransferases, has been demonstrated as a mechanism for the stable localization of glycosyltransferases to their proper compartments. Myosins, dyneins, and kinesins, linked to membranes by small Rab GTPases and their effectors, play important roles in moving cargo on actin and microtubule filaments. Their regulation by adapter proteins and their combinatorial interactions both complementing and opposing movement allows for the fine tuning of cargo transport. Chapter two presents the association of UDP-GlcNAc:[beta]Gal [beta]-1,3-N-acetylglucosaminyltransferase 1 (B3GNT1) and UDP-Gal:[beta]GlcNAc [beta]-1,4-galactosyltransferase, polypeptide 1 (B4GALT1). These two glycosyltransferases participate in the alternating, successive polymerization of poly-N-acetyllactosamine (polyLacNAc), a linear carbohydrate polymer composed of alternating N-acetylglucosamine and galactose residues. We show that these two glycosyltransferases colocalize by immunofluorescence microscopy, interact by coimmunoprecipitation, and when artificially retained in the ER can retain the complementary glycosyltransferase there as well. Chapter three presents the novel regulation of the KIF3 family kinesin, KIF1C, by small Rab GTPases, Rab1 and Rab6. The depletion of KIF1C impairs the plasma membrane delivery of Vesicular stomatitis virus G protein and intriguingly increases the speed of both Rab1 and Rab6 labeled vesicles. Rab6 can bind directly to the C-terminal domain of KIF1C and, like Rab1, can additionally interact with KIF1C's N-terminal motor domain. The interaction of KIF1C with Rab6 diminishes KIF1C's ability to bind microtubules. These results suggest that KIF1C acts as a brake, perhaps slowing transport to allow proper packaging and tethering to occur. Our data suggest that interaction between Rab6 and KIF1C could relieve KIF1C's braking action by displacing it from microtubules; alternatively, KIF1C may function as a molecular tether between membranes carrying Rab1 and/or Rab6.

- 2015 SpringerGil Atzmon, PhD editor.The release of the complete version of the human genome sequence in 2003 has paved the way for defining gene function and genetic background for phenotypic variation in humans and allowed us to study the aging process in a new light. This new volume results from that research and focuses on the genetic and epigenetic process of aging. While the interpretation of the genome data is still in its initial stages, this new volume looks at the evolving understanding of molecular mechanisms involved in cellular processes, gene function associated with complex traits, epigenetic components involve in gene control and the creation of hypothesis-free genome-wide approaches. Longevity Genes: A Blueprint for Aging explores the genetic and genomic elements that can maintain a long life such as DNA damage mechanisms, epigenetics and the way we can use this knowledge to generate customized treatments. It touches on some of the multidisciplinary approaches as well as genomic-wide association technology used to analyze complex traits. This book describes the hunt for genes affecting complex traits using a high throughput technology, with adequate consideration for the selection of an appropriate population, applications of statistical genetics and computational biology, and most importantly, considering phenotype-genotype association studies. Longevity Genes provides coverage of not only established aspects of genetics and aging, but also new approaches and perceptions in this important area of research.Also available: Print – 2015

- 2014 WorldScientificeditors, Rakesh Srivastava, Wojciech Maksymowicz, Wlodek Lopaczynski.This book is all about the definition and finding ways to prioritize and accelerate translation research in biomedical sciences and rapidly turning new knowledge into first-in-human studies. It represents an effort to bring together scientists active in various areas of translational research to share science and, hopefully, generate new ideas and potential collaborations. The book provides a comprehensive overview of translational work that includes significant discoveries and pioneering contributions, e.g., in immunology, gene therapy, stem cells and population sciences. It may be used as an advanced textbook by graduate students and even ambitious undergraduates in biomedical sciences. It is also suitable for non-experts, i.e. medical doctors, who wish to have an overview of some of the fundamental models in translational research. Managing the translational enterprise remains a work in progress. The world is changing rapidly, and the scientific world needs to seek new ways to ensure that discoveries get translated for patients efficiently and as quickly as possible. In addition, everyone expects the investment in biomedical research should pay dividends through effective therapeutic solutions. This unique project provides a broad collaborative approach of the international scientific team to present its view and opinion how to cross barriers to incentives for translational research in medical sciences. Contributing to the book is an international team of prominent co-authors. The book consists of unique and widely treated topics, and includes new hypotheses, data and analyses.
- 2012Elaine Breslaw.In the years following the American Revolution, as poverty increased and America's water and air became more polluted, people grew sicker. Traditional medicine became increasingly ineffective. Instead, Americans sought out both older and newer forms of alternative medicine and people who embraced these methods: midwives, folk healers, Native American shamans, African obeahs and the new botanical and water cure advocates. Breslaw describes the evolution of public health crises and solutions, and argues that their ascendance over other healers didn't begin until germ theory finally migrated from Europe, and American medical education achieved professional standing.
- 2011 SpringerMary Florentine, Arthur N. Popper, Richard R. Fay, editors."The topic of loudness is of considerable concern both in and outside of research laboratories. Most people have developed an opinion about some aspect of loudness, and many complain about the loudness of background sounds in their daily environments and their impacts on quality of life. Moreover, such sounds interfere with the ability to hear useful sounds, and such masking can be especially problematic for people with hearing losses, children, older adults, and non-native speakers of a language. At the same time, not all loud sounds are undesirable. Some loud sounds are important for human well-being, such as warning signals, whereas other loud sounds, such as music, can be pleasurable. In fact, loudness is essential for enjoying the dynamics of music. Thus, loudness is a pervasive and complex issue, and one that needs to be examined from a wide range of perspectives, and that is the purpose of this volume. Research in loudness has been performed in many countries, and this volume is an international endeavor with authors from Europe, Japan, and the United States, making the volume an attempt to provide a global network of information about loudness. The editors are very pleased to be able to bring together information on many aspects of loudness in this one volume, as well as to highlight approaches from many different perspectives."--Publisher's website.

- 2011Zuley Rivera Alvidrez.Any time we move, our brains solve the difficult problem of translating our motor intentions to muscle commands. Understanding how this computation takes place, and in particular, what role the motor cortex plays in movement generation, has been a central issue in systems neuroscience that remains unresolved. In this thesis, we took an unconventional approach to the analysis of cortical neural activity and its relationship to executed movements. We used dimensionality reduction to extract the salient patterns of neural population activity, and related those to the muscle activity patterns generated during arm reaches to a grid of targets. We found that salient neural activity patterns appeared to tightly reflect muscle activity patterns with a biologically-plausible lag. We also applied our analyses to movements that were planned before being executed, and found that a muscle-framework view of the cortical activity was consistent with previously-described predictions of movement kinematics based on the state of the cortical population activity. Overall, our results elucidate remarkable simplicity of the motor-cortical activity at the population level, despite the complexity and heterogeneity of individual cell's activities.

- 2011Henrique do Carmo Miranda.Neural recording systems are fundamental to the advancement of brain-machine interfaces that can significantly improve the quality of lives of patients with neurological diseases, such as spinal cord injuries or quadriplegia. This thesis presents two newly developed wireless neural recording systems that are able to provide a high degree of usability and neural decoding accuracy. They are capable of simultaneously transmitting 32 to 96 channels of neural signals detected by an implanted neural sensor array. This work was carried out within the framework of the Hermes project and its technical design challenges will be addressed. The Hermes project is aimed at primarily developing hardware and software tools that extract neural information from the motor cortex. Those tools can enable practical prosthetic devices used to significantly ameliorate the life of patients with neurological impairments that directly affect motor functions. The first developed system, HermesD, is a 32-channel broadband transmission system using an FSK modulated carrier at 24 Mbit/s in the 3.7-4.1 GHz band. The link range extends beyond 20 m and the total power consumption is 142 mW. The HermesD system uses only COTS components and can be easily replicated. HermesD is fully operational and is currently used to transmit broadband neural data for neuroscience research in the Neural Prosthetic Systems Laboratory (NPSL) at Stanford University. HermesD is also planned as the base platform for future human trials to take place in the same laboratory. The second system that represents the next Hermes generation, HermesE, uses a novel UWB transmitter architecture implemented in a custom IC in the 65-nm CMOS technology. The transmitted signal bandwidth covers the 3.6 to 7.5 GHz frequency range. The time domain waveform is digitally programmable, allowing a very flexible control of the output spectrum to avoid interference and to allow multi-band operation. The UWB transmitter chip is part of a 96-channel broadband recording system delivering 40 Mbit/s. Its power consumption is 230 uW for a communication range of about 5 m. The antenna subsystems for these wireless recording devices presented a design challenge given the requirements for small size, large bandwidth and high efficiency. While HermesD has an operating FBW of 10%, HermesE is much more demanding in this respect, with 70% FBW, requiring unconventional antenna structures. The design techniques and performance of the antennas required to meet the specifications of both systems are also addressed in this work.

- 2012 CRCnetBASEedited by Ayman El-Baz, Jasjit S. Suri."Lung cancer remains the leading cause of cancer-related deaths worldwide. Early diagnosis can improve the effectiveness of treatment and increase a patient's chances of survival. Thus, there is an urgent need for new technology to diagnose small, malignant lung nodules early as well as large nodules located away from large diameter airways because the current technology, namely, needle biopsy and bronchoscopy, fail to diagnose those cases. However, the analysis of small, indeterminate lung masses is fraught with many technical difficulties. Often patients must be followed for years with serial CT scans in order to establish a diagnosis, but inter-scan variability, slice selection artifacts, differences in degree of inspiration, and scan angles can make comparing serial scans unreliable. Lung Imaging and Computer Aided Diagnosis brings together researchers in pulmonary image analysis to present state-of-the-art image processing techniques for detecting and diagnosing lung cancer at an early stage. The book addresses variables and discrepancies in scans and proposes ways of evaluating small lung masses more consistently to allow for more accurate measurement of growth rates and analysis of shape and appearance of the detected lung nodules. Dealing with all aspects of image analysis of the data, this book examines: Lung segmentation, Nodule segmentation, Vessels segmentation, Airways segmentation, Lung registration, Detection of lung nodules, Diagnosis of detected lung nodules, Shape and appearance analysis of lung nodules. Contributors also explore the effective use of these methodologies for diagnosis and therapy in clinical applications. Arguably the first book of its kind to address and evaluate image-based diagnostic approaches for the early diagnosis of lung cancer, Lung Imaging and Computer Aided Diagnosis constitutes a valuable resource for biomedical engineers, researchers, and clinicians in lung disease imaging"--Provided by publisher.
