    "The current edition of The Handbook provides an overview of current care of patients with cancer diagnoses commonly evaluated and treated by surgical oncologists, and in doing so continues to align such care with the underlying philosophy of the Department of Surgical Oncology at M.D. Anderson: multidisciplinary, cooperative care is the ideal way to manage patients with cancer. Such care begins with an understanding of the underlying tumor biology and natural history of the disease and includes technical excellence in the delivery of indicated surgical treatment. It also demands integration of essential information from the available literature on currently preferred treatment modalities, and emphasizes appropriate inclusion of adjunctive specialty care, including medical oncology, radiation oncology, interventional radiology, palliative care, pain management, physical therapy, nutritional support, social services and nursing"--Provided by publisher.

    Multidetector-row computed tomography (MDCT) has become a fundamental imaging technique for the study of many anatomical districts in different clinical situations, as it provides a fast, reliable, and accurate simultaneous evaluation of different organs, including parenchyma, hollow viscera, vessels, and bony structures. It has also equipped the radiologist with the ability to explore areas that in the last decade were largely ignored by CT, especially the coronary arteries and the colon, and to limit invasive diagnostic tests (e.g., catheter angiography) to those cases in which interventional procedures are required. The examination quality and the consequent diagnostic accuracy of MDCT are the results of an optimized study technique, which nonetheless needs to be adapted to the particular clinical situation of the patient, while bearing in mind the radiation exposure. Another fundamental parameter in the optimization of MDCT is the protocol for the intravenous injection of iodinated contrast material; in these studies, multiple variables, some modifiable by the operator and others patient-dependent, must be considered based on the aims of maximizing arterial and venous enhancements whilst minimizing the dose of iodine injected, saving money, and increasing patient safety. Through the presentation of cases addressing different anatomical regions and various clinical indications, including emergency and neuro-imaging, this volume seeks to provide the general radiologist and trainee specialist with a guide to the main study protocols to be implemented in order to optimize examination quality and, consequently, facilitate the diagnostic process.

    The book introduces a radically new way of thinking about information and the important role it plays in living systems. It opens up new avenues for exploring how cells and organisms change and adapt, since the ability to detect and respond to meaningful information is the key that enables them to receive their genetic heritage, regulate their internal milieu, and respond to changes in their environment. It also provides a way of resolving Descartes{u2019} dilemma by explaining the workings of the brain in non-mechanical terms that are not tainted by spiritual or metaphysical beliefs. The types of meaningful information that different species and different cell types are able to detect are finely matched to the ecosystem in which they live, for natural selection has shaped what they need to know to function effectively in those circumstances. Biological detection and response systems range from the chemical configurations that govern genes and cell life to the relatively simple tropisms that guide single-cell organisms, the rudimentary nervous systems of invertebrates, and the complex neuronal structures of mammals and primates. The scope of meaningful information that can be detected and responded to reaches its peak in our own species, as exemplified by our special abilities in language, cognition, emotion, and consciousness, all of which are explored within this new framework.

    This dissertation addressed two challenges in musculoskeletal biomechanics. The first challenge was to understand the function of total knee prostheses after implantation in patients. Motions of the knee following total knee replacement affect a patient's ability to perform daily activities, such as walking and rising from a chair, and affect the longevity of the prosthesis. The millimeter-scale translations of the joint are difficult to measure with noninvasive methods such as analysis of skin mounted markers. We addressed this challenge by measuring passive knee kinematics using a surgical navigation system. The specific goal was to isolate the effects of posterior cruciate ligament removal on knee motion after total knee arthroplasty. We measured knee kinematics intraoperatively while the surgeon passively flexed and extended the knee at four surgical time points: after initial exposure, after removing the anterior cruciate ligament, after removing the posterior cruciate ligament, and after implanting the prosthesis. We calculated anterior femoral translation and the flexion angle at which femoral rollback began. We found that removing the posterior cruciate ligament introduced abnormal anterior translation, doubling the anterior translation from the initial exposure (from 5.1 +/- 4.3 mm to 10.4 +/- 5.1 mm) and increasing the flexion angle at which femoral rollback began (from 31.2 +/- 9.6 degrees to 49.3 +/- 7.3 degrees). Implanting the prosthesis did not restore the motion measured at initial exposure. Relative to the cruciate-deficient case, prosthesis implantation increased the amount of anterior translation (to 16.1 +/- 4.4 mm) and did not change the flexion angle at which femoral rollback began. Abnormal anterior translation was observed in low and mid flexion (0-60 degrees) after removing the posterior cruciate ligament, and normal motion was not restored by the posterior stabilized prosthesis. These findings can be used to interpret further motion analysis during functional tasks and to guide improvements in prosthesis design. The second challenge was to understand how the motions of sarcomeres, the contractile units of muscle, affect the force-generating capacity of muscles in humans. Sarcomere length over a muscle's range of motion in the body is an important factor that affects muscle excursions and force-generating capacity. The relationship between sarcomere length and joint angle can be altered in disease, and measurement of this relationship is important for guiding treatments. Second-harmonic generation (SHG) microendoscopy has recently been developed in our laboratories to image sarcomeres and measure their lengths in humans. However, technical challenges such as motion artifacts and low signal have thus far prevented this novel technique from being used to quantify sarcomere lengths in humans. We discovered that an excitation wavelength of 960 nm maximized image signal; this enabled an image acquisition rate of 3 frames-per-second, which decreased motion artifact. We then used microendoscopy to directly image sarcomeres in the extensor carpi radialis brevis (ECRB) in seven healthy adults with the wrist in 45 degrees extension and 45 degrees flexion. We determined the average sarcomere lengths and the length variability of in-series sarcomeres from the SHG images. Sarcomere lengths in 45 degrees wrist extension were 2.93 +/- 0.29 microns (mean +/- standard deviation) and increased to 3.58 +/- 0.19 microns in 45 degrees flexion. Within local regions of the fibers the standard deviation of sarcomere lengths in series was 0.20 +/- 0.07 microns. These measurements agree with measurements in the same muscle using laser diffraction. The lengths of sarcomeres in series within a small region of an individual fiber can vary substantially. This study demonstrates the suitability of SHG microendoscopy for imaging muscle microstructure and illustrates the potential of this technology to address a new class of questions about muscle architecture and remodeling in humans. The ability to measure sarcomere operating lengths in humans without surgery enables us to diagnose the involvement of specific muscles in neuromuscular disorders, and to design surgeries that will optimize an individual patient's outcome. Measurement of sarcomere operating length will also enable a new class of research questions to be addressed about the adaptations of muscles over time in response to surgeries or pharmacologic treatments.

    Cortical brain-machine interfaces, or BMIs, is a relatively new field with the potential to provide many different clinical treatments, particularly for fully paralyzed patients. In these applications, multichannel electrode arrays are implanted into motor cortical areas in order to extract useful control signals. My research focuses on taking proof-of-concept academic BMI systems, and solving the engineering challenges that currently prevent them from being used in a clinical setting. These challenges include running a BMI for more than a few hours or a single day, and finding ways to minimize the size, cost, and operational complexity of the complete system. This dissertation includes an analysis of neuron stability over long timescales. I will show that the relationship between neurons in motor cortices and behavior remains stationary over time despite substantial noise, which could mitigate some concerns about long-term BMI performance. I will also discuss the development of HermesC, a wireless system for recording multichannel neural data from freely moving primates. This device dramatically reduces the size and cost of current recording technology for real-time neural prosthetic systems, and could be useful for human clinical trials. It may also enable neural prosthetic studies with animals in a less constrained setting. Combining traditional neural recordings with overnight wireless neural recordings, I will also show that there are substantial changes in neural waveforms from single neurons across days. However, the quality of neural decodes (the extraction of useful control signals) is only slightly improved by sorting individual units rather than using simple threshold crossings. This may enable long term BMI operation because multiunit neural "hash" on electrode arrays tends to persist for a long time, perhaps years, after single neuron signals have declined due to various tissue responses. In fact, other recent work from this project has demonstrated high performance neural decodes using only threshold crossings on arrays ~2.5 years after implantation.

    Our bones constantly adapt to their mechanical environment through a biological response from the womb to the tomb. Mechanobiology, the biological response to mechanical loading, is important for determining various properties of bone such as size and shape. During embryonic development, rapid growth generates significant tension in the periosteum, and tension has previously been shown to lead to bone apposition. In adults, intracortical stresses dominate and increased loading leads to elevated rates in bone apposition. Periosteal tension and intracortical stresses, then, are both experienced by bones, but their influences on bone apposition rates vary over time. This dissertation analyzes how embryonic bone growth rates and adult bone adaptation rates in long bones are related to their respective mechanical environments. The hypothesis that bones grow and adapt at rates corresponding to changes in the mechanical environment is investigated. In the first study, I investigated the mechanical environment of the periosteum during embryonic growth and its relationship to bone growth rates. The specific growth rate, or percent growth per day, was calculated using microCT images taken over embryonic days 11-20. Bones grew faster in length than in circumference during this time. Finite element techniques were then used to analyze the opening dimensions of incisions through the periosteum. Longitudinal and circumferential residual strains decreased from 46.2% to 29.3%, and 10.6% to 3.9%, respectively, during embryonic days 14-20. Residual strains were positively correlated to specific growth rates (p< 0.05). Many studies have investigated bone adaptation in adult mice and rats by applying loads to the long bones, and measuring changes in periosteal cortical bone apposition rates. However, results are difficult to compare because the loading schemes are generally different. The second study presents a theoretical framework for evaluating the mechanical stimulus based on the bone daily strain stimulus, which is a function of loading cycles and bone strains. The daily strain stimulus may act as a single unifying parameter for directly comparing data from existing in vivo experiments. Two approaches were used to determine the periosteal daily strain stimulus necessary for bone maintenance (xi_peri_0) and the strain-cycle weighting exponent (m), which are required to calculate the daily strain stimulus. In the first approach, data from bone maintenance studies were used to calculate xi_peri_0 to be 2793 microstrain/day, and m to be 4.5. In the second approach, strain gage recordings were used to calculate xi_peri_0 to be 1496 microstrain/day, and human bone compressive fatigue properties were used to assign m to be 11.88. Bone apposition rates generally increased with increasing daily strain stimulus, which was consistent with previous theoretical models. The third study provides examples of how the daily strain stimulus may be used to examine the effects of specific loading parameters on bone apposition rates. The effects of inserting periods of rest and frequency were examined. Inserting periods of rest during loading appeared to increase bone apposition rates by approximately 64% compared to continuously loaded bones. Frequency has been previously suggested to be most osteogenic at 5-10 Hz. Using this analysis, an increase in bone apposition rate was also observed at 10 Hz. The results of these studies provide insight into the effects of periosteal tension during embryonic development and intracortical strains during adulthood on bone apposition rates. These findings illustrate how important the mechanical loads experienced by bones and their surrounding tissues are in determining the sizes and shapes of bones.

    The heart is a complex integrated system that leverages mechanoelectrical signals to synchronize cardiomyocyte contraction and push blood throughout the body. Due to the heart's limited regenerative capacity and the wide variety of cardiovascular pathologies, heart disease is often studied in vitro. However, it is difficult to accurately replicate the cardiac environment outside of the body. In this dissertation, I describe an integrated strain array for cell culture that mimics the mechanical movement of the heart and enables high-throughput mechanotransduction studies. Along with mechanical strain, substrate stiffness is an important mechanical stimulus. The heart and vasculature, along with other organs, remodel in both development and disease, changing their mechanical properties. I successfully implement a method that can simultaneously tune both substrate stiffness and mechanical strain in normal and pathological ranges. Polyacrylamide gels, attached to stretchable silicone platforms by interpenetrating networks, can be stretched up to 50% without delaminating. To fully harness the potential of studying heart disease in vitro, better techniques for studying heart cell contractions are required in addition to biomimetic dynamic culture. In this dissertation, I also describe two successful new approaches to quantifying cardiomyocyte contractility using simple phase contrast videos: one for single cells plated on soft gels and one for cell monolayers attached to glass or plastic. Together, these innovations provide a suite of tools to stimulate and assess cardiovascular cells and advance our collective knowledge of cardiovascular health and disease.

    Mechanical testing is a useful tool in the field of biomechanics. Classic biomechanics employs mechanical testing for a variety of purposes. For instance, testing may be used to determine the mechanical properties of bone under a variety of loading modes and various conditions including age and disease state. In addition, testing may be used to assess fracture fixation procedures to justify clinical approaches. Mechanical testing may also be used to test implants and biomaterials to determine mechanical strength and appropriateness for clinical purposes. While the information from a mechanical test will vary, there are basics that need to be understood to properly conduct mechanical testing. This book will attempt to provide the reader not only with the basic theory of conducting mechanical testing, but will also focus on providing practical insights and examples.

    The volume dwells on the major issues of mechanical stress influencing the ion channels and intracellular signaling pathways. This book is a unique collection of reviews outlining current knowledge and future developments in this rapidly growing field. In our opinion the book presents not only the latest achievements in the field but also brings the problem closer to the experts in related medical and biological sciences as well as practicing doctors. Knowledge of the mechanisms which underlie these processes is necessary for understanding of the normal functioning of different living organs and tissues and allows to predict changes, which arise due to alterations of their environment, and possibly will allow to develop new methods of artificial intervention. We also hope that presenting the problem will attract more attention to it both from researchers and practitioners and will assist to efficiently introduce it into the practical medicine.

    The mitral valve is one of four heart valves that ensure unidirectional blood flow through the heart. Due to mitral valve failure approximately 44,000 people in the US alone undergo open heart surgery every year. Current treatment options include mitral valve replacement and mitral valve repair, neither of which have shown satisfying long-term success. A deepened understanding of mitral valve mechanics may help in improving current medical device designs and treatment options for mitral valve regurgitation. Here I provide an in depth analysis of the in vivo mechanics of the mitral valve using the theory of finite kinematics and based on this data develop non-linear in silico models of the mitral valve employing the finite element method. Using mechanical metrics such as strain and curvature I reveal the in vivo deformation of the mitral annulus and the mitral leaflet in the healthy, diseased, and repaired mitral valve. Furthermore, in silico I explore the effects of prestrain as well as growth and remodeling on the mechanics of the mitral valve. The results of my in vivo studies extend our current understanding of the healthy mitral valve, reveal new insight into disease characteristics and progressions, and evaluate the efficacy of current device designs. Furthermore, results from the in silico studies provide improved means to simulate mitral valve mechanics and predict long term adaptation for basic science research and medical device design. In conclusion, with the current work I take a large step toward a deepened understanding of mitral valve mechanics that may help to optimize medical device designs and treatment options.

    Protein phosphorylation provides a mechanism for the rapid, reversible control of protein function. Phosphorylation adds negative charge to amino acid side chains, and negatively charged amino acids (Asp/Glu) can sometimes mimic the phosphorylated state of a protein. Using a comparative genomics approach, I show that nature also employs this trick in reverse by evolving serine, threonine, and tyrosine phosphorylation sites from Asp/Glu residues. Structures of three proteins where phosphosites evolved from acidic residues (DNA topoisomerase II, enolase, and C-Raf) show that the relevant acidic residues are present in salt bridges with conserved basic residues, and that phosphorylation has the potential to conditionally restore the salt bridges. The evolution of phosphorylation sites from glutamate and aspartate provides a rationale for why phosphorylation sometimes activates proteins, and helps explain the origins of this important and complex process. After using comparative genomics to uncover the evolutionary origins of phosphorylation, I expanded my work to attempt to predict novel phosphorylation sites using the KEGG (Kyoto Encyclopedia of Genes and Genomes) database of proteins and ortholog families. By examining aligned sites within families of proteins for the trends found in my initial investigation, I sought to improve ways of identifying promising potential phosphorylation sites.

    During the development of the vertebrate nervous system neural progenitors divide, generate progeny that exit mitosis and then migrate to sites where they elaborate specific morphologies and synaptic connections. Mitotic exit in neurons is accompanied by an essential switch in the Mammalian SWI/SNF (also called BAF) ATP-dependent chromatin regulatory complexes from the neural progenitor npBAF to neuron-specific nBAF complexes. We elucidated the mechanism of a microRNA/chromatin switch underlying the switch of the npBAF subunit, BAF53a for the nBAF subunit BAF53b. Recapitulating this microRNA/chromatin switch in fibroblasts leads to their direct conversion to neurons. We have defined the kinetics of nBAF complex assembly in the formation of induced neurons from ES cells or fibroblasts as well as normal neural differentiation and using proteomic analysis find that this switch also includes the removal of SS18 and its replacement by CREST at mitotic exit. We find that switching of chromatin remodeling mechanisms is highly correlated with a broad switch in the use of neurogenic transcription factors. Knockdown of SS18 in neural stem cells causes cell-cycle exit and failure to self-renew, while continued expression of SS18 in neurons blocks dendritic outgrowth underlining the importance of subunit switching. Recent whole genome sequencing studies show that dominant mutations in BAF subunits underlie widely different human neurologic diseases including mental retardation, microcephally, schizophrenia, sporadic mutations in autism as well as the neurodegenerative disease, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) also known as Lou Gehrig's disease. Using whole exome analysis of ALS trios (trio=two unaffected parents and affected child), we identified and functionally characterized two de novo mutations in CREST that function in a dominant negative mode to inhibit dendrite outgrowth in cortical and motor neurons. As the aforementioned neurological diseases arise in different neuronal types, our studies suggest that the characteristics of these diseases must be interpreted in the context of the different BAF assemblies in neurons rather than a singular mSWI/SNF complex.

    Tremor is intimately linked to the numerous interactions of the central and peripheral nervous system components tuning motor control, from the cerebral cortex up to the peripheral effectors. Activities of central generators, reflex loop delays, inertia, stiffness and damping are all factors influencing features of tremor. This book discusses the pathophysiology of tremor including membrane mechanisms and rodent models, the advances in genetics and the musculoskeletal models pertinent to body oscillations. The main forms of tremor encountered during clinical practice are considered, taking into account neuroimaging aspects. The book covers recent advances in methodologies and techniques of assessment, and provides practical informations for the daily management. In addition to pharmacological treatments, neurosurgical approaches such as deep brain stimulation (DBS) and thalamotomy are discussed. Emerging techniques under development are also introduced. Future challenges are also presented.

    Deep brain stimulation (DBS) is a powerful therapeutic option for intractable movement and affective disorders (Parkinson's disease or PD, tremor, dystonia, Tourette syndrome, chronic pain, obsessive compulsive disorder, depression, bipolar). The benefits of DBS are immediate and dramatic, manifested as instantaneous improvements in motor function in the case of PD patients. However, due to the nonspecificity of electrical stimulation, DBS has variable efficacy and can lead to serious side effects. The mechanisms behind the effects of DBS are still highly controversial and there is tremendous interest from both neuroscience and clinical communities to understand and improve DBS. We have developed a novel technology based on two microbial opsins, Channelrhodopsin (ChR2) and Halorhodopsin (NpHR), that allows to directly and specifically control the activity of distinct cell-types with high temporal precision in well defined brain regions, therefore allowing us to overcome the lack of specificity of electrical DBS. This study provides the first investigation of the role of specific cell types in ameliorating PD symptoms addressed by effective DBS treatment. The focus of the thesis was twofold: (1) to develop and optimize optogenetic technologies (molecular and hardware) for safe and effective use in behaving mammals; and (2) to employ the above developed optogenetic toolkit to deconstructing diseased brain circuitry, with focus on Parkinson's disease. The framework and technological toolbox presented here can be employed across many brain circuits to selectively control individual components and therefore systematically deconstruct intact and disordered brain processes.

    This textbook aims to describe the fascinating area of eukaryotic gene regulation for graduate students in all areas of the biomedical sciences. Gene expression is essential in shaping the various phenotypes of cells and tissues and as such, regulation of expression is a fundamental aspect of nearly all processes in physiology, both in healthy and in diseased states. This pivotal role for the regulation of gene expression makes this textbook essential reading from students of all the biomedical sciences in order to be better prepared for their specialized disciplines. A complete understanding of transcription factors and the processes that alter their activity is a major goal of modern life science research. The availability of the whole human genome sequence (and that of other eukaryotic genomes) and the consequent development of next-generation sequencing technologies have significantly changed nearly all areas of the biological sciences. For example, the genome-wide location of histone modifications and transcription factor biding sites, such as provided by the ENCODE consortium, has greatly improved our understanding of gene regulation. Therefore, the focus of this book is the description of the post-genome understanding of gene regulation. The purpose of this book is to provide, in a condensed form, an overview on the present understanding of the mechanisms of gene regulation.

    Cancers arise through the acquisition of genetic and epigenetic changes which result in the activation of growth-promoting oncogenes and the inactivation of growth-inhibitory tumor suppressor genes. Despite the accumulation of many diverse mutations, some tumors exhibit sensitivity to the targeted inhibition of single gene products, in a phenomenon known as oncogene addiction. In the Emu-tTA/tetO-MYC transgenic mouse model, overexpression of MYC results in the development of aggressive T-cell lymphoma, and subsequent inactivation of MYC results in rapid tumor regression occurring primarily via cell cycle arrest, senescence, and apoptosis. This thesis presents work investigating various aspects of oncogene addiction in MYC-induced lymphomas. We have discovered that tumor recurrence in MYC-induced lymphomas following initial MYC inactivation occurs mainly through the persistence and expansion of cells that fail to suppress MYC expression. This demonstrates that addiction to some oncogenes may be inescapable and that resistance to MYC therapy would likely occur through the restoration of MYC function. We have also discovered that activation of the Wnt/beta-catenin pathway is a common secondary event in MYC-induced lymphomagenesis. Beta-catenin was found to be frequently stabilized due to mutations that prevent its phosphorylation and subsequent degradation, including a novel splice acceptor site mutation. Inhibition of beta-catenin resulted in robust apoptosis, indicating that MYC-induced lymphomas can exhibit addiction to multiple different oncogenes.

    The increasing prevalence of chronic, difficult-to-treat resistant bacterial infections have created a pressing need for the discovery of promising, novel pharmaceutical candidates that could replace or complement current therapies, which are becoming less reliable and effective due to a rise in bacterial resistance. Antimicrobial peptides (AMPs) are a naturally occurring, ubiquitous, and ancient class of antibiotics that offer a unique template for the development of novel antimicrobial therapies. However, in vivo therapeutic peptides have a short half-life since they are easily degraded by proteases, thus reducing their bioavailability, which renders them a less attractive choice therapeutically. Consequently, non-natural mimics of AMPs, which can emulate the favorable characteristics of AMPs are becoming significantly important. Poly-N-substituted glycines, also called "Peptoids", are structural and functional mimics of AMPs and are resistant to proteolysis. Predecessors in the Barron laboratory designed and characterized antimicrobial peptoids against free-floating, planktonic bacteria. However, almost 60% of infections are caused by bacterial biofilms. These complex communities of microorganisms are protected by an excreted matrix of adhesive biomacromolecules and are more difficult to kill with conventional antibiotics than planktonic bacteria. Furthermore, to develop peptoids as potential therapeutics, the mechanisms by which they interact with bacteria need to be understood, which are still under investigation. Here, we report that peptoids have similar or better efficacy than conventional antibiotics against biofilms of a clinical isolate of drug-resistant P. aeruginosa. We determined the effects of peptoids on bacterial biomass and cell viability, by Crystal Violet assay and bacterial plating, respectively. We also explored the efficacy of peptoids against Mycobacterium (an organism resistant to antibiotics due to the presence of a thick waxy coating) and intracellular L. monocytogenes by bioluminescent imaging. In addition, we also investigated the mechanisms of action of peptoids and peptides by biophysical techniques (Ultra-Violet Visible spectroscopy) and bioluminescent imaging. We report that peptoids are non-lytic and cause bacterial killing by aggregating the bacterial ribosomes and decreasing ATP levels inside the cell. Lastly, we present a mouse wound model, which suggests that peptoids are effective in vivo in reducing P. aeruginosa infections.

    The aorta is the largest blood vessel in the body, responsible for carrying blood from the heart directly to most major organs and ending at the iliac arteries which feed the lower extremities. This elastic vessel provides much of the vascular system's compliance and is composed of a heterogeneous mixture of smooth muscle cells, collagen, and elastin. The general purpose of our work has been to use in vivo imaging to determine abdominal aortic dynamics in a variety of healthy and diseased cases. First, a cross-species analysis in mice, rats, rabbits, pigs and humans showed with M-mode ultrasound that infrarenal abdominal aortic motion was similar in animals and humans, regardless of aortic size. Greater anterior than posterior wall motion was observed and aortic wall displacement increased linearly with diameter. Next, cardiovascular abnormalities in a recently developed mouse model for Williams-Beuren Syndrome (WBS) were investigated. WBS is a rare genetic disorder caused by a heterozygous 1.5-megabase deletion, which typically includes the elastin gene. In this study, we showed that Wbs mice have hypertension, reduced in vivo cyclic strain, and fragmented medial elastin sheets - all characteristics similar to human WBS. These data provide insight into the genotype-phenotype relationship between elastin levels, aortic stiffness, and the cardiovascular abnormalities associated with WBS and other microdeletion syndromes. Finally, the biomechanical influences on murine models of abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA), a pathological dilation of the abdominal aorta, were investigated using magnetic resonance imaging. From this work, we showed that the location of aneurysm development may be correlated with the location of maximum abdominal aortic curvature in angiotensin II-induced murine AAAs. This model consistently forms abdominal aneurysms with repeatable leftward vessel expansion above the renal arteries. Our work has shown that this leftward saccular shape is likely influenced by leftward suprarenal aortic curvature and motion. Histological analysis provided evidence for degradation of medial elastin at one focal location on the left side of the vessel, with a majority of animals also developing an adventitial hematoma at a similar circumferential location. Conversely, elastase-induced infrarenal murine AAAs do not form in a location of high vessel curvature and do not expand in one general direction. This work will help to further our understanding of the role mechanics may play in AAA formation, progression, and eventual rupture.

    DNA gyrase is a molecular motor that directionally introduces negative supercoils into DNA, serving a function that is critical to most bacterial life. This thesis addresses the question of how gyrase transduces chemical energy stored in ATP into mechanical energy stored in supercoiled DNA. I have investigated how substeps in the ATPase cycle -- ATP binding, hydrolysis and product release -- coordinate structural transitions of the nucleoprotein complex during the course of the supercoiling reaction. Using single-molecule real-time tracking of DNA compaction and rotation, I have characterized the geometry and interconversion dynamics of DNA configurations under different nucleotide conditions. A critical step in the reaction cycle of DNA gyrase involves the formation and manipulation of a chiral wrap in the path of DNA on a scale of ~ 150 base pairs. I show that chiral wrapping is a multistep process that dominates the overall kinetics and is modulated by ATP. My results identify new roles for ATP binding, hydrolysis and product release, and show that nucleotide states in gyrase cannot be uniquely identified with structural intermediates. The work reveals a sophisticated molecular motor in which a conformational landscape of loosely coupled transitions funnels the enzyme toward productive energy transduction.

    "The purpose of medical education is to benefit patients by improving the work of doctors. Patient centeredness is a centuries old concept in medicine, but there is still a long way to go before medical education can truly be said to be patient centered. Ensuring the centrality of the patient is a particular challenge during medical education, when students are still forming an identity as trainee doctors, and conservative attitudes towards medicine and education are common amongst medical teachers, making it hard to bring about improvements. How can teachers, policy makers, researchers and doctors bring about lasting change that will restore the patient to the heart of medical education? The authors, experienced medical educators, explore the role of the patient in medical education in terms of identity, power and location. Using innovative political, philosophical, cultural and literary critical frameworks that have previously never been applied so consistently to the field, the authors provide a fundamental reconceptualisation of medical teaching and learning, with an emphasis upon learning at the bedside and in the clinic. They offer a wealth of practical and conceptual insights into the three-way relationship between patients, students and teachers, setting out a radical and exciting approach to a medical education for the future." --Publisher description.

    In addition to being essential for safe and effective patient care, medical equipment also has significant impact on the income and, thus, vitality of healthcare organizations. For this reason, its maintenance and management requires careful supervision by healthcare administrators, many of whom may not have the technical background to understand all of the relevant factors. This book presents the basic elements of medical equipment maintenance and management required of healthcare leaders responsible for managing or overseeing this function. It will enable these individuals to understand their professional responsibilities, as well as what they should expect from their supervised staff and how to measure and benchmark staff performance against equivalent performance levels at similar organizations. The book opens with a foundational summary of the laws, regulations, codes, and standards that are applicable to the maintenance and management of medical equipment in healthcare organizations. Next, the core functions of the team responsible for maintenance and management are described in sufficient detail for managers and overseers. Then the methods and measures for determining the effectiveness and efficiency of equipment maintenance and management are presented to allow performance management and benchmarking comparisons. The challenges and opportunities of managing healthcare organizations of different sizes, acuity levels, and geographical locations are discussed. Extensive bibliographic sources and material for further study are provided to assist students and healthcare leaders interested in acquiring more detailed knowledge.

    "This book arrives at a time of heightened concerns about patient safety in medical care and the overall responsibility assumed by health professionals. It begins by exploring experiences of error and harm in general, and it covers medical errors that can be attributed to system failures and errors in an individual's reasoning, subsequent decision-making, and execution of tasks in medical care. It focuses on how to detect, correct, and avoid errors and their sometimes disastrous consequences. The book concludes with an analysis of the contributions and expectations of physicians in tort litigation and legal decision-making"--Provided by publisher.

    "Diseases affecting the skin have tended to provoke a response of particular horror in society. With obvious and sometimes repellant outward signs of malady, they were often perceived to be highly contagious, as well as synonymous with immorality. Such connotations may have stemmed from the tell-tale buboes of syphilis, but the social stigma of disfigurement is something that still exists today. This collection of essays uses case studies to chart the medical history of skin from the eighteenth to the twentieth century." -- [Publisher-supplied data]

    Medical Imaging in Clinical Trials is a key text in understanding the methodology and the metrics that are required in the field of medical imaging. As the pharmaceutical, biotech and medical device industries continue to identify ways to improve and speed up product development, medical imaging plays a more significant role. Medical Imaging in Clinical Trials aims to educate and provide a hands-on text for those involved in clinical trials and either new to medical imaging and having to assimilate it into clinical trials or requiring to understand the key differences between clinical trial imaging and routine clinical imaging. It is targeted to those professionals involved in clinical trials at the clinical research site, pharmaceutical and medical device industries, and regulators. This is not the "how to image" book written for the radiologist or Radiological Technologist, but covers the critical aspects of clinical trial methodology that are important for these individuals to understand. This book addresses the ethics and radiation dosages of the different modalities, the end points commonly used for the different trial phases, the acquisition and analysis techniques, as well as the logistics management of medical imaging and the role of the central imaging lab or imaging core lab (ICL) which is now the standard requirement for clinical trials. Furthermore this text delves into the details of the major therapeutic areas where medical imaging plays a primary or secondary efficacy or safety end point.

    Over the years, medical informatics has matured into a true scientific discipline. Fundamental and applied aspects are now taught in various fields of health, including medicine, dentistry, pharmacy, nursing and public health. Medical informatics is also often included in the curricula of many other disciplines, including the life sciences, engineering and economics. Medical informatics is a complex and rapidly changing discipline. Relatively few books have been published on the subject, and they rapidly become obsolete. This book is the fruit of a collaborative effort between authors teaching medical informatics in France and others who are conducting research in this field. In addition, an international perspective was pursued, as reflected in the inclusion of various developments and actions in both the USA and Europe. This book is divided into 18 chapters, all of which include learning objectives, recommendations for further reading, exercises and bibliographic references.

    Medical Radiation Dosimetry: Theory of Charged Particle Collision Energy Loss provides a uniquely required advanced, comprehensive and definitive theoretical description of the physics of charged particle collision energy loss and the role that it plays in the clinical radiation dosimetry resulting from exposure to ionising radiation. Medical Radiation Dosimetry: Theory of Charged Particle Collision Energy Loss is both an advanced mathematical and physics treatise and an essential reference volume for the medical physics graduate student and the medical radiation physicist working in the field of clinical and research radiation dosimetry. It will assist both audiences in both the understanding of the genesis of the numerical data provided in multiple technical reports and publications, and of the limitations of these data.

    This book, written by members of the core faculty responsible for European courses on Medical Response to Major Incidents (MRMI), is a practical guide for all medical staff on how to respond to a wide range of disaster scenarios. The entire spectrum of knowledge is covered, from command and coordination through to the management of individual casualties. Central importance is attached to the key component of decision making by explaining what needs to be done for patients in particular situations and the required order and timing of treatment measures. Simplified methods receive due attention, as it is often necessary for medical staff to administer primary treatment outside of their own specialty. This book will prove an invaluable aid to all who may be involved in the response to major accidents and disasters, including medical and nursing students, ambulance crew, and military personnel as well as medical specialists.

    "Kirsten Ostherr's ambitious study explores 120 years of medical image-making to explain how visual representations shape medical education and practice. Marshaling powerful, vivid examples she demonstrates how medical images created by the healthcare industry, documentary filmmakers, experimental artists, and the mass media acquire cultural meaning and influence doctors' and patients' understandings of health and disease. Her analysis proceeds chronologically, turning from the earliest experiments with medical filmmaking by the American College of Surgeons, to the place of health films in the "golden age" of instructional film in the 1960s. Ostherr considers the shift to television as the dominant medium of health education, highlighting the evolving status of realism, the techniques employed to bridge the entertainment-education divide, the role of expert consultants and sponsors, and the tradeoffs made by professionals to reach a broad audience. The rise of physician advice segments on newsmagazines forms a transition between medical dramas like Marcus Welby, MD and more recent reality shows like Boston Med and Doctor 90210. Concluding with a section on advertising and social media in the health care setting, the book ends with ten key lessons for the future of medical media." -- [Publisher-supplied data]

    Medicare spends a considerable amount of money on beneficiaries in their last year of life. This is often thought to be an issue of cost versus the intensity of care that end-of-life patients should receive. This way of framing the debate, however, overstates the importance of end-of-life spending, which is quantitatively modest compared to an ever-increasing Medicare budget. More salient is whether patients are receiving end-of-life care that matches their values and beliefs. Unfortunately, the evidence suggests that Medicare's tendency toward providing end-of-life care in a hospital inpatient setting is at odds with the preferences of patients.

    Several policies that would have reduced spending and increased revenues were poised to take effect at the end of 2012; collectively, these were referred to by some as the "fiscal cliff." Had these policies taken effect, CBO projected that the ensuing fiscal contraction would have resulted in a recession in 2013. On January 2, 2013, the President signed H.R. 8, the American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012 (ATRA, P.L. 112-240), which prevented most--but not all--of the fiscal cliff policies from going into effect. This Act was passed by the Senate on January 1, 2013 by a vote of 89-8, and by the House later that day, 257-167. Title VI of the Act extends several expiring provisions in the Medicare and Medicaid programs and makes other changes in federally funded health programs.

    Osteonecrosis of the jaws is a well-known side-effect of antiresorptive therapy that predominantly occurs in patients suffering from malignant diseases and receiving intravenous administrations of nitrogen-containing bisphosphonates or subcutaneous administrations of denosumab, a monoclonal antibody. Less frequently it may also be observed in patients with osteoporosis who are being treated with these antiresorptive drugs. This textbook provides detailed, up-to-date information on all aspects of medication-related osteonecrosis of the jaws, including clinical features, pathogenesis, treatment options, and preventive measures. It also explains safe prevention and treatment strategies for patients receiving antiresorptive drugs who require extractions, implant insertions, and other dento-alveolar surgeries. This book will be of major interest for medical and dental students, dentists, and oral and maxillofacial surgeons as well as osteologists and oncologists.

    L'abuso di sostanze può essere alla base di un gran numero di patologie e disturbi psichiatrici, e viene classificato tra i primi quattro fattori di rischio che contribuiscono al carico di malattia globale. Una situazione di dipendenza può infatti complicare un quadro psichiatrico già difficile, poiché si sovrappone ad altri disturbi e talvolta ne prende le forme, rendendo ancora più ardua la valutazione del paziente. Individuare con precisione un disturbo da abuso di sostanze può facilitare la diagnosi clinica, evitare test non necessari e abbreviare la durata del ricovero. Questo volume costituisce una guida pratica e concisa rivolta agli studenti, ai medici e ad altre figure professionali che si confrontano con la moderna medicina della dipendenza. Illustrando una vasta gamma di evidenze, metodi e soluzioni per la gestione del paziente con dipendenza, questa guida fornisce gli strumenti e le conoscenze di base utili a una pratica clinica rapida ed efficace in questo campo.

    Current questions over whether Hellenistic Egypt should be understood in terms of colonialism and imperialism, multicultural separatism, or integration and syncretism have never been closely studied in the context of healing. Yet illness affects and is affected by nutrition, disease and reproduction within larger questions of demography, agriculture and environment. It is crucial to every socio-economic group, all ages, and both sexes; perceptions and responses to illness are ubiquitous in all kinds of evidence, both Greek and Egyptian and from archaeology to literature. Examing all forms of healing within the specific socioeconomic and environmental constraints of the Ptolemies' Egypt, this book explores how linguistic, cultural and ethnic affiliations and interactions were expressed in the medical domain.

    Physician-scientists are unusual creatures. While we are drawn to the clinical challenges of our patients, we are also drawn to the opportunities that our patients' medical problems bring to science. This book contains the unique experiences and encounters that drew 21 accomplished physician-scientists to this profession. These personal stories are those of people and circumstances that have had profound effects on our career decisions, our creative opportunities, and our lives. These stories also serve to highlight the lessons learned along the way and the distinct attributes of these women and men of medicine and science. Our combined hope is that our collective biographies will enhance the public understanding of our profession, will move people from medicine to science and from science to medicine, and will inspire those who are contemplating this extraordinary profession.

    "This unique examination of medieval medicine as detailed in physician's manuals of the period reveals a more sophisticated approach to the medical arts than expected for the time. Far from the primitive and barbaric practices the Middle Ages may conjure up in our minds, doctors during that time combined knowledge, tradition, innovation, and intuition to create a humane, holistic approach to understanding and treating every known disease. In fact, a singularly authoritative medical source of the period, Lily of Medicine, continued to provide crucial study for students and practitioners of medicine almost four centuries after its completion in 1305. This unprecedented book investigates the extensive capabilities of physicians who relied on practice, observation, and imagination before the supremacy of mechanistic views and technological aids. Medieval Medicine: The Art of Healing, from Head to Toe is a comprehensive look at diseases as they were described, classified, explained, assessed, and treated by doctors of the age. The author methodically compares a dozen encyclopedic manuals in which both the fundamental understanding of healthy functions and the specific response to diseases were summarized, viewing the information through a medieval perspective rather than based upon modern criteria." -- Publisher's description.

    Meeting the Needs of Older Adults with Serious Illness: Challenges and Opportunities in the Age of Health Care Reform provides an introduction to the principles of palliative care, describes current models of delivering palliative care across care settings, and examines opportunities in the setting of healthcare policy reform for palliative care to improve outcomes for patients, families and healthcare institutions. The United States is currently facing a crisis in health care marked by unsustainable spending and quality that is poor relative to international benchmarks. Yet this is also a critical time of opportunity. Because of its focus on quality of care, the Affordable Care Act is poised to expand access to palliative care services for the sickest, most vulnerable, and therefore most costly, 5% of patients- a small group who nonetheless drive about 50% of all healthcare spending. Palliative care is specialized medical care for people with serious illnesses. It focuses on providing patients with relief from the symptoms, pain, and stress of a serious illness, whatever the diagnosis or stage of illness. The goal is to improve quality of life for both the patient and the family. Research has demonstrated palliative care?s positive impact on health care value. Patients (and family caregivers) receiving palliative care experience improved quality of life, better symptom management, lower rates of depression and anxiety, and improved survival. Because patient and family needs are met, crises are prevented, thereby directly reducing need for emergency department and hospital use and their associated costs. An epiphenomenon of better quality of care, the lower costs associated with palliative care have been observed in multiple studies. Meeting the Needs of Older Adults with Serious Illness: Challenges and Opportunities in the Age of Health Care Reform, a roadmap for effective policy and program design, brings together expert clinicians, researchers and policy leaders, who tackle key areas where real-world policy options to improve access to quality palliative care could have a substantial role in improving value.

    The book is structured in five sections, each containing several chapters written by experts and major contributors to particular topics. The volume starts with a historical perspective and fundamental principles of membrane potential imaging and continues to cover the measurement of membrane potential signals from dendrites and axons of individual neurons, measurements of the activity of many neurons with single cell resolution, monitoring of population signals from the nervous system, and concludes with the overview of new approaches to voltage-imaging. The book is targeted at all scientists interested in this mature but also rapidly expanding imaging approach.

    As little as ten years ago, it was believed that memory went from short to long term via one consolidation practice that made that memory intractable. Since then, research has shown that long term memories can be activated, modified, and reconsolidated in their new form. This research indicates that memories are more dynamic than once believed. And understanding how this process works, and helping people to redefine established memories can be clinically useful, if those memories lead to problems as is the case in post traumatic stress disorder. This book provides a comprehensive overview of research on memory reconsolidation, what this has to say about the formation, storage, and changeabitility of memory, and the potential applications of this research to treating clinical disorders. Presents both neuroscience and psychological research on memory reconsolidation. Discusses what findings mean for understanding memory formation, storage, and retrieval. Includes treatment applications of these findings.

    The overall goal of this dissertation is to determine, through a mechanical perspective, how meniscal damage occurs and how subsequent partial meniscectomy can lead to the development of osteoarthritis. Individuals who suffer meniscus injuries suffer both short-term and long-term consequences, from painful joint-locking to premature osteoarthritis. This thesis provides potential mechanisms behind degenerative damage to the posterior horn of the medial meniscus. Once this damage has occurred, this thesis provides an explanation for the changes that occur during walking after partial medial meniscectomy and then suggests a mechanism for why these subjects are at risk for developing premature osteoarthritis. Patterns of regional variation in transverse plane meniscal displacement during positions representative of normal gait were studied using cadaveric knees in a test bed developed to be compatible with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). The results demonstrated that during the stance phase of walking, the lateral meniscus appears to displace with the femoral condyle while the medial meniscus, especially at the posterior horn, displaced minimally. The relatively low movement of the medial posterior horn suggests that this region sustains substantial cyclic stress to restrain the normal posterior displacement of the medial femoral condyle at heel strike of each gait cycle. These results help explain the chronic patterns of damage to the posteromedial horn. Gait analysis of subjects who had undergone partial medial meniscectomy revealed that during stance phase, these subjects had tibias that were externally rotated by 3.2° compared to their healthy contralateral limbs. Their operated limbs also exhibited reduced peak flexion and extension moments compared to their healthy limbs. The altered rotational position found likely causes changes in tibiofemoral contact during walking and could cause the type of degenerative changes found in the articular cartilage following meniscal injury. A joint level numerical model was developed to look further at the results from the first two studies. This 3D FE model looked at the effects of the previously noted tibial rotational shift and an increased adduction moment on the meniscal strains during a simulated portion of the gait cycle. The increased adduction moment resulted in increased strains of both the anterior and posterior horn of the medial meniscus. The external tibial rotational shift resulted in decreased strains in the posterior medial horn and increased strains in the anterior medial horn. The lateral meniscus exhibited much lower strains than the medial meniscus and minimal changes under the various loading conditions. It appears that the shift towards external tibial rotation seen clinically after partial medial meniscectomy is not likely to cause medial meniscal damage and therefore, the kinematic shift might be a result of the surgery. Finally, the FE model was then used to look at the effects of varying levels of partial medial meniscectomy on the rotational resistance of the tibia during a portion of the stance phase of gait. Additionally, the stresses and contact pressures in the articular cartilage of the knee were determined. The results showed that the more meniscal tissue that was removed, the greater the loss of rotational stability that was provided by the geometry. Additionally, the location of removal of meniscal tissue was important as the central rim resulted in a greater loss of rotational stability than removal from the anterior or posterior horns. Similarly, the more meniscal tissue that was removed, the higher the increase in contact pressures and stresses within the articular cartilage. Thus, the results indicate that it may simply be the resulting change in meniscal geometry after partial medial meniscectomy that results in the kinematic shift towards external tibial rotation we see in individuals who have undergone partial meniscectomy. The combination of the change in contact location along with the potential increase in cartilage stresses seen post-meniscectomy may place these individuals at higher risk for developing premature osteoarthritis. Taken together, the results of these studies provide potential mechanisms for the development of damage to the medial meniscus and then the subsequent changes that may lead to the development of premature knee osteoarthritis after partial meniscectomy. Additionally, the insights provided by this work have direct implications into treatments for meniscal injuries in order to prevent degenerative changes in articular cartilage.

    Thoroughly discussing the varied elements of meniscal damage and repair, Meniscal Injuries: Management and Surgical Techniques includes the insights and expertise of over 20 leading surgeons and researchers on topics ranging from meniscal anatomy, physical examination, innovative resection and repair techniques, gene therapy, and tissue regeneration. This treatise offers wisdom aimed at assessing true surgical candidates, exploring the intricacies of meniscal composition and function, an overview of meniscal scaffolds and replacements, and patient examination pearls. Also discussed in depth is cutting edge research concerning meniscal repair enhancement, nanofiber technology as a means of meniscal replacement, and biologic agents directed toward chondral protection. All the science presented will direct the sports medicine practitioner to state-of-the-art treatment aimed at knee preservation. Meniscal repair and regeneration is a rapidly evolving science - early attempts at meniscal restoration or repair resulted in short-term gains which often sacrificed long-term joint integrity. Now, the practitioner is afforded numerous means of retaining or restoring meniscal tissue. Breakthroughs in scaffold and allograft replacement, as featured herein, offer the promise of articular cartilage preservation like never before. In addition, tissue regeneration and gene therapy techniques, featured throughout, offer a glimpse into emerging technologies aimed at preserving or replacing meniscal tissue in previously considered hopeless cases. As such, Meniscal Injuries will be an indispensible resource to orthopedic surgeons and sports medicine practitioners interested in providing the absolute most contemporary and evidence-based care to their patients.

    In the last decade, much of the clinical interest in the field of infertility has focused on advancing reproductive techniques and has often under-appreciated the role that male sexuality plays in reproductive problems. Male sexual function is an integral part of reproduction, and the treatment of sexual dysfunction is an important component for any couple seeking fertility. In some cases, treatment of sexual dysfunction may obviate the need for more invasive cures through advanced reproductive techniques. Thanks to recent clinical and scientific advances in male sexual medicine, the management of men's sexual dysfunction is often more effective and less invasive than how it was historically described. Men's Sexual Health and Fertility is the only resource that focuses on the interplay and interconnections between male sexual dysfunction and male factor infertility, gathering insightful data from a panel of experts in male sexual medicine for clinicians who treat couples with fertility issues due to male sexual dysfunction. Chapters discuss advances in the field of men's sexual medicine, including the latest treatment for erectile dysfunction, the most up-to-date understanding of the physiology and pathophysiology of ejaculation, and the growing body of evidence that low testosterone and male infertility are intimately related. As such, this book provides important information in order to be able to better understand the link between sexual dysfunction and infertility and, most importantly, to better treat male sexual dysfunction in the infertile couple.

    This book proposes a didactic approach to the different aspects of pain in mental health. The various chapters cover the myths, neurophysiology, perception, measurement and management of pain in mental health. The most common problems, including mood disorders, schizophrenia, anxiety, somatoform disorders, and pervasive developmental disorders, are covered. Each chapter addresses the problem of pain by putting an emphasis on the characteristics of different populations of patients suffering from mental illness. The book helps specialists working in different areas of mental health to appreciate the importance of pain problems in mental health, and also offers avenues for the measurement and treatment of pain in these patients. Mental health and pain are complex issues. They also share certain mutually influential neurophysiological mechanisms, which makes it even more difficult to identify their specific individual characteristics. This duality between the somatic and psychic components can become a pitfall for the specialist in mental health since it can be difficult to disentangle the evolution of a painful condition from the mental illness.

    "There is strong scientific evidence that poverty is a cause of mental illness. This book brings together a body of knowledge from biomedical and social science literature that is of importance to both academics and practitioners. It explores a broad range of issues, including stigma, the recovery model and substance misuse. The role of childhood adversity is examined, together with other potential causal mechanisms. The content is accessible and engaging, with numerous references pointing readers to the best resources for further information. Poverty is not inevitable, even in a difficult economic climate. The time is ripe for a scientific consensus to inform realistic, hopeful and optimistic campaigns to reduce inequality in the interests of public health and well being. This book provides an evidence-based resource for mental health professionals, social scientists and their students. It will be of interest far beyond those professionally involved in mental health services and research."--Publisher's description.

The first of its kind, it addresses an issue that is necessary for protecting the rights of people with mental disorders and serves as an essential text for reinforcing mental health policy in South Asia. it is a timely addition to our global understanding of mental health and how different regions address it.Asia is by far the largest continent in the world in terms of area with population exceeding 3.5 billion and has dozens of cultures, religions, languages and ethnic groups. As a result of its highly varied political systems, Asia also spawns a wide variety of health care systems including mental health care systems, often based on historical roots and at times colonial heritages. The people who suffer from mental or neurological disorders in the continent form a vulnerable section of society and often face stigma, discrimination and marginalization in all societies, and this increases the likelihood that their human rights will be violated

    Mesenchymal Stem Cells or Multipotent Mesenchymal Stromal Cells (collectively referred to as MSCs) are currently being tested in a number of clinical trials for various diseases including graft-versus-host disease, Crohn's disease, myocardial infarction, stroke, diabetes, cartilage defects, and many others. The increasing number of clinical trials globally indicates the likely therapeutic potential of this specialized adult stem cell. Over the last decade, there has been tremendous progress towards understanding an MSC's phenotype, expansion features in culture, differentiation ability and global gene and protein expression profiles. Despite the enormous progress and data accrual at the molecular and cellular levels, several questions remain as to the utility of MSCs for clinical applications. Mesenchymal Stem Cell Therapy is a comprehensive collection of information comprised of both basic and pre-clinical biological studies as well as current advances in clinical applications within the MSC therapy field. This text is a resource for both the basic life science and cell therapy researchers and includes a spectrum of review chapters from top experts in the field discussing clinical scale culture, regulatory issues, genetic engineering, disease specific applications and others.

    "Using key canonical science fiction narratives, Mesmerists, Monsters, and Machines examines the intersection of the literary and scientific cultures of the nineteenth century. In this approach to the study of early science fiction, author Martin Willis maintains that science fiction was just as important in defining the culture of the nineteenth century as other critics maintain it was in shaping the twentieth century." "Mesmerists, Monsters, and Machines interrogates the cultural implications of scientific development as articulated, challenged, and reformulated by science fiction. Each chapter demonstrates that both science and fiction were vital parts of a culture of imaginative and empirical practices that were continually reacting to, arguing with, and influencing one another throughout the nineteenth century. In a narrative that cites classic science fiction texts, Willis establishes a timeline for the reader so that the cultural significance of science fiction is understood and its complexity and relevance to the nineteenth century is demonstrated." "Those interested in nineteenth-century history and literature, cultural studies, the history of science, and science fiction will welcome this addition to the scholarship."--Book jacket.

    The metabolic syndrome is a cluster of common pathologies: abdominal obesity linked to an excess of visceral fat, insulin resistance, dyslipidemia and hypertension. At the molecular level, metabolic syndrome is accompanied not only by dysregulation in the expression of adipokines, cytokines, and chemokines but also by alterations in insulin and leptin signaling, oxidative stress, and chronic low grade inflammation. These changes affect immune responses and mediate chronic inflammation leading to alterations in the hypothalamic 'bodyweight/appetite/satiety set point'. It is becoming increasingly evident that metabolic syndrome is a risk factor for neurological disorders such as stroke, depression, and Alzheimer disease (AD). Family history, age, environmental and lifestyle factors (diet and physical inactivity, and exposure to toxins) are closely associated with predisposition for the development of metabolic syndrome as well as neurological disorders. The incidences of stroke are 2 to 4-fold higher in patients with metabolic syndrome and cardiovascular diseases compared to normal subjects of the same age. Similarly, patients with metabolic syndrome have a 2 to 3-fold increased risk for developing dementia and AD. Metabolic syndrome doubles the risk of depression. The molecular mechanism underlying the mirror relationship between metabolic syndrome and neurological disorders is not fully understood. However, biochemical alterations observed in metabolic syndrome like induction of chronic inflammation and oxidative stress, impairment of endothelial cell function, induction of insulin and leptin resistance, hyperglycemia-related increase in advanced glycation end-products, and micro-vascular injury may represent a pathological bridge between metabolic syndrome and neurological disorders. It is hoped that Metabolic Syndrome: An important risk factor for stroke, Alzheimer disease, and depression will be useful to postgraduate students, faculty, research scientists, pharmacologists, nutritionists, and physicians, who are curious about the molecular mechanisms that link metabolic syndrome with stroke, Alzheimer disease, and depression.

    Metabolic syndrome is a common syndrome affecting about 20% of the adult population in Europe, and the prevalence is likely similar in other industrialised countries worldwide. It is mainly caused by the western lifestyle, which tends to produce abdominal obesity, but a genetic predisposition also plays a part. This syndrome, which is linked to leisure lifestyles and overeating/obesity, can develop into type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease and cancer. Therefore, proper treatment and prevention are essential. This book discusses lifestyle intervention and treatment, specifically with pharmacological compounds, in order to formulate a strategy for treating the metabolic syndrome in daily practice.

Isolating the effects of the different procedures is critical to the decision tree for type of procedure selected for an individual patient. Specifically for diabetes, this textbook will provide a guide for practitioners to a tailored approach to the treatment. Areas of ongoing research that highlight the minimally invasive approach as well as incorporating what we know of the biochemical results of surgery are presented. Results of established weight loss procedures and ongoing trials are juxtaposed against some of the more novel techniques to ascertain a best practice. Metabolic Syndrome and Diabetes serves as a very useful resource for physicians and researchers dealing with, and interested in, this rising epidemic of metabolic syndrome and diabetes. It provides a concise yet comprehensive summary of the current status of the field that will help guide patient management and stimulate investigative efforts.

    "Metabolic Syndrome and Neurological Disorders brings together information on the cluster of common pathologies which cause metabolic syndrome - abdominal obesity linked to an excess of visceral fat, insulin resistance, dyslipidemia and hypertension - to provide a comprehensive and cutting edge exploration of the link between metabolic syndrome and neurological disorders. Metabolic syndrome is recognized to play a role in neurological disorders such as stroke, Alzheimer's disease, and depression. For the first time in book form, Metabolic Syndrome and Neurological Disorders covers the molecular mechanisms thought to underlie this mirror relationship, as well as how lifestyle and other factors such as oxidative stress and inflammation may play a role in the disease. Grounded in a series of epidemiological studies of metabolic-cognitive syndrome, this book will be a valuable reference for researchers, dietitians, nutritionists, and physicians"--Provided by publisher.

    meeting organized by Terri Grodzicker, David Stewart, and Bruce Stillman.
    "The Symposium aimed to integrate a very broad field of investigative effort, bringing together advances in our understanding of energy intake, consumption, and storage (diet, exercise, and fat), oxygen regulation and hypoxia, circadian rhythms, and life span/aging. The Symposium explored metabolism at molecular (gene expression, posttranslational modifications, protein turnover, cofactors and integrators, hormones, and signals), organellar (mitochondria), cellular, organ system (cardiovascular, bone), and organismal (timing and life span) scales. Diseases impacted by metabolic imbalance or dysregulation that were covered in detail included diabetes, obesity, metabolic syndrome, and cancer. New and emerging technologies were presented for simultaneous monitoring of hundreds of metabolites that allow for sophisticated sampling of the metabolic state of cells. Because the Symposium covered such a broad field, by necessity much excellent work could not be included, and instead, the Proceedings should be viewed as a necessarily eclectic collection of some of the most interesting and stimulating work that came to the organizers' attention during the 18 months before the meeting"--P.

    "Arsenite contamination of drinking water is a major cause of chronic illness and mortality in many countries, but until recently little was known of the processes determining its movement and concentration. Bacterial oxidation of arsenite was first described in 1918 and thought to be a means of detoxification. It was not until 2000 that the first autotrophic arsenite-oxidising bacterium was isolated and shown to gain energy from arsenite oxidation. Since then a wide range of such bacteria has been isolated and the literature on the topic has grown rapidly. This book reviews the new understanding of the diversity and abundance of such organisms, their role in arsenic cycling in the environment and their possible relations with arsenic-dependent diseases in humans"-- Provided by publisher.

    This book illustrates remarkable roles of metal ions in the neuropathophysiology of stroke, which is a major cause of death and disability worldwide. Metal ions have unique chemical properties that allow them to play diverse roles in the brain. They regulate excitability and function as co-factors in cellular and genetic signaling pathways and therefore, have important roles ranging from essential to toxic. For the first time, the dyshomeostasis and pathophysiological actions of these metals in stroke are discussed systematically in thirty-six chapters in one volume. Highlighted metal ions include:Aluminum (Al)Arsenic (As)Cadmium (Cd)Calcium (Ca)Copper (Cu)Iron (Fe)Magnesium (Mg)Manganese (Mn)Mercury (Hg)Nickel (Ni)Potassium (K)Selenium (Se)Sodium (Na)Zinc (Zn).

    Metal ions in the brain are a necessity as well as a poison. The presence of metal ions in the active sites of biological catalysts or metalloproteins and in the biological functioning of nucleic acids is very well documented and they are required for brain activity. On the other hand, metals are very effective in generating oxidative stress. This effect does not only play a role in immunology but also is the root of practically all neurodegenerative disorders by inducing disease via the death of neurons. Managing metal ions in the brain could therefore be an important strategy in the search for therapeutic agents used in the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases. This new title gives an overview to key topics in the area of metal ions in the brain. It focuses on the role of metal ions in neurological systems by describing their advantageous functions as well as their poisonous features. It is therefore of interest for scientists in biochemistry and biophysics, physiology, toxicology as well as for physicians focused on this topic.

    Georges Vigarello ; translated from the French by C. Jon Delogu.
    "Georges Vigarello maps the evolution of Western ideas about fat and fat people from the Middle Ages to the present, paying particular attention to the role of science, fashion, fitness crazes, and public health campaigns in shaping these views. Although hefty bodies were once a sign of power, today those who struggle to lose weight are considered poor in character and weak in mind. Vigarello traces the eventual equation of fatness with infirmity and the way we have come to define ourselves and others in terms of body type. Vigarello begins with the medieval artists and intellectuals who treated heavy bodies as symbols of force and prosperity. He then follows the shift during the Renaissance and early modern period to courtly, medical, and religious codes that increasingly favored moderation and discouraged excess. Scientific advances in the eighteenth century also brought greater knowledge of food and the body's processes, recasting fatness as the "relaxed" antithesis of health. The body-as-mechanism metaphor intensified in the early nineteenth century, with the chemistry revolution and heightened attention to food-as-fuel, which turned the body into a kind of furnace or engine. During this period, social attitudes towards fat became conflicted, with the bourgeois male belly operating as a sign of prestige but also as a symbol of greed and exploitation, while the overweight female was admired only if she was working class. Vigarello concludes with the fitness and body-conscious movements of the twentieth century and the proliferation of personal confessions about obesity, which tied fat more closely to notions of personality, politics, taste, and class."--Book Jacket.

    When analyzing the results of diagnostic imaging studies, the radiologist traditionally makes reference to particular features representative of normality or pathology. Most of these features are associated with images of the world around us. This pictorial issue contains nearly 400 illustrations and descriptions of more than 100 classic radiological signs of chest and abdominal diseases that are not named after authors but based on metaphors derived from contemplation of our environment. By correlating the results of computed tomography with these vivid descriptive images, readers will be able to memorize typical and often pathognomonic patterns of disease more quickly and more easily. This book will be of value for both radiology residents and more experienced radiologists.

    One of the grand challenges in genomic medicine is to translate fundamental scientific discoveries regarding the structure, variation, and function of the genomes of individuals and populations towards improved health outcomes. The main hypothesis of this thesis is that all forms of human genetic variation contributing to the etiology and pathophysiology of modern human diseases have distinct and quantifiable evolutionary histories, which can be computed for every position in the human genome independent of human population characteristics, and used as informative quantitative priors in the discovery and assessment of variants of clinical importance in modern human populations. To enable robust evaluation of the specific questions posed by this thesis, I first explore the necessary properties and theoretical basis for a null evolutionary hypothesis for Evolutionary Genomic Medicine, and conclude that the well-established Neutral Theory of Molecular Evolution provides a sound theoretical and methodological basis for evaluating alternative hypothesis in Evolutionary Genomic Medicine. Due to advances in multiplex genotyping technologies, genome-wide associations studies (GWAS), have emerged as the premier modality for discovery and assessment clinical genomic variation. Although these efforts have been successful in revealing thousands variants robustly associated with a broad spectrum of clinical phenotypes, the variants established by the GWAS approach have so far failed to explain large proportions of the known genetic variance associated with important clinical traits such as Type 2 Diabetes and Hypertension. Because disease-associated variation is linked with genomic loci of functional importance which have undergone evolutionary selection, and even the proxy loci (e.g. tagging SNPs) used to probe for disease associated loci themselves have quantifiable evolutionary histories, I evaluate a compendium of disease-associated variants to evaluate the effect of long-term evolutionary histories on the discovery of disease-associated variants. Through this work I demonstrate that disease-associated variants have distinct evolutionary properties, and that evolutionary features of positions can be incorporated as priors to improve discovery of disease-associated variants. A similar approach is applied to evaluate pharmacogenomics variants associated with warfarin, demonstrating that evolutionary features of genomic positions improve clinical assessment of pharmacogenomics variation. Through the findings and insights gained from efforts in pursuit of my thesis which are reported here, my collaborators and I clearly demonstrate that quantitative evolutionary features can be estimated for each position in the human genome across species, and then applied to modern human population data to improve discovery and assessment of genomic variation associated with clinical phenotypes.

    Most human variation lies outside of coding regions, where molecular functions are more difficult to determine than for variants in coding regions. As most disease-associated variants lie in non-coding regions, characterizing the role of regulatory variation is crucial to understanding the molecular mechanisms of these diseases and methods to do so are currently limited. Recently, a number of research efforts, including the ENCODE project, have produced a wealth of data on transcription factor binding sites and other regulatory information, in addition to increasingly available whole genome sequence and transcriptomics data. These data will crucial to understanding the molecular basis of many diseases, but their scale and disparate nature, as well as high levels of noise, require clever informatics methods to integrate and properly apply this information. In this thesis, I describe methods to address some of the major informatics challenges to characterize the role of regulatory variants in phenotypes and disease. In particular, I have shown that I can (1) detect cooperativity among transcription factors using human variation data, (2) associate transcription factors to functional modules and thus discover new TF interactions and disease associations, (3) provide molecular mechanisms for disease-associated non-coding variants, and (4) explore regulatory functional mechanisms using long-range interactions in the human genome.

    "Effectiveness and Comparative Effectiveness Reviews, systematic reviews of existing research on the effectiveness, comparative effectiveness, and comparative harms of different medical tests, are intended to provide relevant evidence to inform real-world health care decisions for patients, providers, and policymakers. In an effort to improve the transparency, consistency, and scientific rigor of the work of the Effective Health Care (EHC) Program, the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), the Scientific Resource Center, and the Evidence-based Practice Centers (EPCs), have developed this Methods Guide for Medical Test Reviews (also referred to as the Medical Test Methods Guide). We intend it to serve as a resource for the EPCs as well as for other investigators interested in conducting systematic reviews on medical tests. We hope it will be a practical guide both for those who prepare the systematic reviews and those who use them in clinical practice, research development, and in making policy decisions."
