    The cellular interior is crowded with macromolecules that form highly organized but dynamic structures. While these properties of the cytoplasm have become well known, their physical consequences on intracellular processes such as transport and gene expression are still not well understood. The goal of this dissertation is to begin to elucidate these physical consequences and to develop a new model for macromolecular motion in vivo. Tracking of fluorescently labeled chromosomal loci in live bacterial cells reveals a robust subdiffusive scaling of the mean square displacement (MSD). To identify the source of anomalous behavior, we developed analytical theory and Brownian dynamics simulations of polymers under various physical environments. Specifically, we examined the consequences of confinement, self-interaction, viscoelasticity and random waiting on monomer motion. We found that neither confinement nor self-interaction alter the fundamental Rouse mode relaxations of a polymer. However, viscoelasticity, modeled by fractional Langevin motion (fLm), and random waiting, modeled with a continuous time random walk (CTRW), led to significant and distinct deviations from the classic polymer dynamics model. We propose that the subdiffusive motion of chromosomal loci observed in vivo arises from relaxation of the Rouse modes of the DNA polymer within the viscoelastic environment of the cytoplasm. The time-averaged and ensemble-averaged MSD of chromosomal loci exhibit ergodicity, and the velocity autocorrelation function is negative at short time lags. These observations are most consistent with fLm and rule out a CTRW model as an explanation for anomalous motion in vivo. In contrast to the subdiffusive scaling exponent, the apparent diffusion coefficient is variable across species and sensitive to biological perturbations. When ATP synthesis is inhibited in E. coli, the apparent diffusion coefficient decreases 2-fold while the scaling exponent remains constant. This observation suggests that metabolic activity contributes to the magnitude of locus motion, but does not affect the subdiffusive mechanism (or the viscoelastic properties of the cytoplasm). Furthermore, the temperature-dependence of locus motion is steeper in untreated cells than in ATP-depleted cells. These results suggest that untreated cells have an additional source of molecular agitation that increases with temperature. Such ATP-dependent fluctuations are likely mechanical, as the heat dissipated from glycolysis and oxidative phosphorylation is insufficient to account for the difference in the apparent diffusion coefficient between untreated and ATP-depleted cells. We are currently investigating the dynamic contributions of several molecular candidates. Our data indicate that ATP-dependent enzymatic activity, in addition to thermal fluctuations, may contribute to the molecular agitation driving (sub)diffusion in the cell.

    For many years diagnosing macular edema at an early stage has been a main difficulty. Recently, multiple and remarkable advances of modern imaging technologies which allow recognition of the main etiologies, have immensely improved its diagnosis and treatment. In this volume different patterns and etiologies of macular edema are described and the importance of preserving the photoreceptors at an early stage in order to retain center visual acuity is discussed. It brings together the most recent data and evidence-based medicine, and, on the other hand, the pathophysiological basis of macular edema and the different approaches for drug delivery to the posterior segment are presented. Recommendations for treatment procedures or different therapies have been carefully analyzed and considered prior to inclusion. 'Macular Edema - A Practical Approach' provides the ophthalmologist with a synthesis of knowledge to diagnose, to determine etiology, and to offer the patient viable treatment options for his benefit.

    "When it comes to understanding and treating madness, distortions of research are not rare, misinterpretation of data is not isolated, and bogus claims of success are not voiced by isolated researchers seeking aggrandizement. This book's detailed analyses of coercion and community treatment, diagnosis, and psychopharmacology reveals that these characteristics of bad science are endemic, institutional, and protected in psychiatry. This is mad science. Mad Science argues that the fundamental claims of modern American psychiatry are not based on convincing research, but on misconceived, flawed, and distorted science. The authors address multiple paradoxes in American mental health, including the remaking of coercion into scientific psychiatric treatment in the community, the adoption of an unscientific diagnostic system that now controls the distribution of services, and how drug treatments have failed to improve the mental health outcome." -- Publisher's description.

    Magnesium is an essential mineral which is required for growth and survival of humans. Since magnesium is a mineral and not synthesizable it must be obtained through dietary foods and/or supplements. Magnesium in Human Health and Disease reviews the benefits of magnesium supplementation to reach recommended intakes as well as provides new research that suggests how reaching levels above the recommended intakes can promote health and treat various diseases. Magnesium deficiency can cause low serum potassium and calcium levels, retention of sodium, and low circulating levels of regulatory hormones. These changes in nutrients cause neurological and muscular symptoms such as tremor and muscle spasms. Further magnesium deficiency causes loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting, personality changes and death from heart failure. Causes of magnesium deficiency include alcohol abuse, poorly controlled diabetes, excessive or chronic vomiting and/or diarrhea. Thus the effects of inadequate and deficient intakes or levels of magnesium is critical to health and are reviewed by the expert clinicians in this book. Magnesium in Human Health and Disease provides the most current research to support the potential benefits or lack thereof for normal and high supplementation with magnesium. Animal model research and early human trials are reviewed to document other disease states such as hypertension, cholesterol level, type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease that would benefit from increased magnesium.

    Lab-on-a-Chip devices are attractive for medical diagnostics due to their ability to perform laboratory tasks on small scales. This manuscript explores magnetic nanoparticle-based technologies for low-power, remote actuation in Lab-on-a-Chip systems. Two specific applications -- microfluidic pumping and cell separation -- are investigated. First, chemistry-independent microfluidic pumping using magnetic nanoparticles suspended within a fluid has been demonstrated. Magnetic circuits to generate magnetic field gradients for actuating superparamagnetic nanoparticles in fluids have been fabricated, and changes in fluid velocities when the magnetic circuits are applied have been measured. Results show that the fluid velocity in a microchannel increases 30 [mu]m/sec when a magnetic field gradient of ~3 T/m is applied, and 10 -- 70 [mu]m/sec when a magnetic field gradient of ~5 T/m is applied. The magnetic, optical, and mechanical properties of a magnetic polymer that is composed of SU-8 polymer embedded with nickel nanoparticles (SU8-Ni) have also been characterized. Results show the SU8-Ni composites exhibit weak ferromagnetic behavior and saturate at magnetic fields around 0.2 T, the transmittance of light through SU8-Ni decreases with increasing Ni concentrations, and SU8-Ni has a Young's modulus that is 30 times lower and a hardness that is 1400 times lower than that of bulk Ni. A torsional microactuator made of SU8-Ni has been fabricated to demonstrate its use for magnetic actuation, and a model of the SU8-Ni based on deflection experiments of the actuator has been developed. Micropillars made of SU8-Ni have been fabricated for capturing and concentrating breast cancer cells in microchannels. Magnetic field gradients up to 10,000 T/m have been predicted for an SU8-Ni pillar that is 100 [mu]m tall, 100 [mu]m in diameter, and composed of 12.5% Ni by weight. Experimental results show the SU8-Ni micropillars capture magnetic bead-bound cells when an external magnet is applied and release the cells when the magnet is removed.

    This dissertation presents the basic principles of the magnetic protein chip immunoassay and applications of the magnetic protein chip for the detection of protein biomarkers. The magnetic protein chip is based on the giant magnetoresistive (GMR) spin-valve sensors, and electrical resistance changes of the sensors are measured as signals. Immunoassays were developed using the magnetic protein chips to quantitate protein biomarkers with high sensitivity. The magnetic protein chip immunoassay has several advantages over conventional non-magnetic techniques, such as multiplex capability, smaller sample volume requirement, enhanced signal-to-noise ratio, and facile integration with electronics. Ionizing radiation is high energy radiation that can remove electrons from atoms, and it causes various cellular damages some of which are lethal. Using an in vivo mouse radiation model, we developed protocols for measuring fms-related tyrosine kinase 3 ligand (Flt3lg) and serum amyloid A1 (Saa1) in small amounts of blood collected during the first week after X-ray exposures of sham, 0.1, 1, 2, 3, or 6 Gy. Flt3lg concentrations showed excellent dose discrimination at >= 1 Gy in the time window of 1 to 7 days after exposure except 1 Gy at day 7. Saa1 dose response was limited to the first two days after exposure. A discriminant analysis using both proteins could show improved dose classification accuracy. Our magnetic protein chip immunoassay demonstrated the dose and time responses and low-dose sensitivity that have important advantages in radiation triage biodosimetry. Necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) is an inflammatory bowel disease often observed in pre-term babies and has high mortality rate. However, timely diagnosis of NEC has been hampered due to its unspecific symptoms and ineffective clinical tests currently available. We developed a magnetic protein chip immunoassay for the validation of NEC biomarkers. Three biomarkers, C-reactive protein (CRP), matrix metalloproteinase-7 (MMP7), and epithelial cell adhesion molecule (EpCAM) were quantitated using a small amount of blood samples. Receiver operating characteristic (ROC) curve analysis combined with bootstrapping technique showed excellent discrimination of NEC from healthy control and NEC from sepsis. Given the generality of the detection scheme used in the magnetic protein chip immunoassay, the magnetic protein chips are expected to hold great potential for medical diagnosis and clinical research.

    This innovative book presents the development and clinical applications of magnetic resonance elastography (MRE), a new MRI-based imaging technology for quantitatively assessing the mechanical properties of tissue. Many disease processes cause profound changes in mechanical characteristics of tissue, but these changes can be completely invisible in examinations with conventional imaging technologies. MRE provides unique tissue information and powerful new diagnostic capabilities. The book begins with an accessible overview of the basic technology underlying MRE. Successive chapters provide coverage of the use of MRE to assess organ systems, including liver, skeletal muscle, brain, lungs, heart, breast, spleen, and kidney. The book is edited by Sudhakar Venkatesh, MD, a leader in the clinical use of this technology, and Richard Ehman, MD, the inventor of MRE. Magnetic Resonance Elastography is a valuable resource for radiologists, residents, fellows, technologists, hepatologists and scientists.

    "Magnetic Resonance Imaging in Movement Disorders is the first book to focus in detail on MRI in a range of movement disorders. Since MRI was first employed in imaging Parkinson's disease, the number of imaging techniques and their application in diagnosis and management has extended widely. The book shows various imaging strategies ranging from functional, structural and chemical methods as they relate to both motor and non-motor aspects of Parkinson's disease and other conditions such as Huntington's disease and dystonia. Chapters on MRI in surgery and using MRI as a potential outcome measure in clinical trials show the clinical relevance of methods. Novel methods including DTI, tractography and resting case studies are described in detail. The book also summarises the relevance of fMRI to various aspects of movement disorders."--Provided by publisher.

    This textbook is alone in focusing on the subject of cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) imaging in pediatric and adult patients with congenital heart disease. The topic of congenital heart disease imaging is usually relegated to a single chapter in most general CMR texts. The expanding scope of CHD warrants a text dedicated to covering CHD and CMR imaging in detail. Our proposed book aims to be a comprehensive and authoritative text on this subject.

    Osteoarthritis (OA) is a degenerative joint disease that affects over 80% of the population of the U.S. by age 65. However, there is currently no disease-modifying treatment for OA. In order to develop and evaluate potential treatments, it is necessary to assess cartilage health over the course of the disease. Here, an MRI method is presented to obtain sodium images of tissue that pushes the current state of the art of sodium MRI and can provide new information about cartilage. The method presented here enables sodium imaging at high resolution and with lower noise levels than previously reported. This technique uses custom-made radio-frequency (RF) coils and a 3D-cones k-space trajectory and is well suited to imaging at high field strengths like 3 T and 7 T. A second novel method is presented for generating high-resolution, 3D T2 and ADC maps of the human knee in vivo. The maps are derived from diagnostic-quality morphological MR images. This method is based on a new variation of the 3D double echo steady-state (DESS) sequence and solves many of the current challenges of traditional imaging techniques. Finally, a third method is presented allowing independent excitation of two or more volumes with a short RF pulse for MRI. This method enables different volumes to be excited with different RF pulse parameters, including flip angle, slice profile or thickness, phase modulation, etc., increasing the flexibility of the excitation. In summary, the techniques presented here generate measurements of sodium, T2, and ADC in cartilage, all biomarkers of interest for this tissue. These measurements are either less noisy or more efficiently obtained than with previous methods. The methods presented in this dissertation also improve the efficiency of diagnostic image acquisition for the knee.

    Making Computerized Provider Order Entry Work is neither a scientific reference guide into medical informatics nor a book on theory or a summary of research studies in the field, but rather it is a practical guide to visioning and executing successful automation of physician workflow in the hospital environment. This adaptation of workflow is the work of a team, with leadership, clear vision, dedication, commitment, external drivers, experience, and the tireless work of those before us in this industry, who have paved the way with both successes and failure.Throughout the book, the author shares hard lessons-learned and guides the reader through the early warning signs that will help avoid the pitfalls. As systems progress, and the regulatory environments change, there will be new challenges and opportunities that will confront those setting up automated physician workflows. However, this book highlights and discusses all of the principles involved such as vision, leadership, project management and change management, which will always need to be incorporated to ensure project success. As such this book will be an important reference for anyone involved in the setting up or use of such systems from the physicians and medical professionals themselves through the medical informaticist to health system executives and other decision makers.

    While spirituality has been generally recognized as an essential dimension of palliative care, uniformity of spiritual care practice has been lacking across healthcare settings due to factors like varying understandings and definitions of spirituality, lack of resources and practical tools, and limited professional education and training in spiritual care. In order to address these shortcomings, more than forty spiritual and palliative care experts gathered for a national conference to discuss guidelines for incorporating spirituality into palliative care. Their consensus findings form the basis of Making Health Care Whole. This important new resource provides much-needed definitions and charts a common language for addressing spiritual care across the disciplines of medicine, nursing, social work, chaplaincy, psychology, and other groups. This book also advocates a team approach to spiritual care, and specifies the roles of each professional on the team. Serving as both a scholarly review of the field as well as a practical resource with specific recommendations to improve spiritual care in clinical practice, Making Health Care Whole will benefit hospices and palliative care programs in hospitals, home care services, and long-term care services.

    Using the findings of recent neuroscience, a psychologist reveals what sets humans apart from all other species, offering a fascinating exploration of our marvelous and sometimes frightening cognitive abilities and potentials. According to human genome research, there is a remarkable degree of overlap in the DNA of humans and chimpanzees. So what accounts for the rapid development of human culture throughout history and the extraordinary creative and destructive aspects of human behavior that make us so different from our primate cousins? Here the author explores in detail five distinctive parts of human cognition. These are the executive functions of working memory; a social intelligence with "mind-reading" abilities; a capacity for symbolic thought and language; an inner voice that interprets conscious experiences by making causal inferences; and a means for mental time travel to past events and imagined futures. He argues that it is the interaction of these five components that results in our uniquely human mind. This is especially true for three quintessentially human endeavors: morality, spirituality, and literacy, which can be understood only in light of the whole ensemble's interactive effects. He recaps the story of the human mind and speculates on its future. How might the Internet, 24/7 television, and smart phones affect the way the mind functions? Will the risk of mass distraction in our technology-saturated world inhibit further evolution of themind or will the superconnectivity of our expanding social networks enable us to share knowledge and collaborate in unprecedented ways, opening the human potential to breathtaking new heights? -- From back cover.

    "An in depth examination of maldynia, also known as chronic pain, this book explores pain as a bio-cultural phenomenon that necessitates reexamination of medical philosophy, ethics, education, and practice. It provides a historical account of pain and then frames it with contemporary neurobiological perspectives. This book supplies a foundation upon which to illustrate (1) how what we know about pain could and should influence medical education, and the scope, and value (s) of medical practice, and (2) how a knowledge of the history and present considerations of pain might help to construct meaningful, patient-centered medicine"--Provided by publisher.

    Novel topics compiled in this one-of-a-kind volume provide tantalizing hints for clinical application through future translational research. Only recently have we come to ask what role the male might play in pregnancy loss and embryo implantation failure, beyond contributing an abnormal set of paternal chromosomes at fertilization. This volume explores the recent evidence that these conditions might also be related to the transmission of previously unrecognized chromosomal micro-deletions and duplications, or via the epigenetic dysregulation of early embryonic gene function by spermatozoal microRNAs or alterations in sperm DNA methylation patterning, or by DNA damage secondary to either reactive oxygen species or environmental toxicants. In addition, the composition of seminal plasma has been found to be highly complex, containing many factors that play important roles in altering the uterine environment and the female immune system permissive of embryo implantation and trophectoderm outgrowth leading to successful pregnancy. Coverage includes an examination of both spermatozoa and seminal fluid component factors.

    "Cancer can kill: this fact makes it concrete. Still, it's a devious knave. Nearly every American will experience it up-close and all too personally, wondering why the billions of research dollars thrown at the word haven't exterminated it from the English language. Like a sapper diffusing a bomb, Jain unscrambles the emotional, bureaucratic, medical, and scientific tropes that create the thing we call cancer. Scientists debate even the most basic facts about the disease, while endlessly generated, disputed, population data produce the appearance of knowledge. Jain takes the vacuum at the center of cancer seriously and demonstrates the need to understand cancer as a set of relationships--economic, sentimental, medical, personal, ethical, institutional, statistical. Malignant analyzes the peculiar authority of the socio-sexual psychopathologies of body parts; the uneven effects of expertise and power; the potentially cancerous consequences of medical procedures such as IVF; the huge industrial investments that manifest themselves as bone-cold testing rooms; the legal mess of medical malpractice law; and the teeth-grittingly jovial efforts to smear makeup and wigs over the whole messy problem of bodies spiraling into pain and decay. Malignant examines the painful cognitive dissonances produced by the ways a culture that has relished dazzling success in every conceivable arena have twisted one of its staunchest failures into an economic triumph. The intractable foil to American achievement, cancer hands us -- on a silver platter and ready for Jain's incisively original dissection -- our sacrifice to the American Dream"-- Provided by publisher.

    This book is a comprehensive analysis of the definitions, concepts, and recent research on malingering, feigning, and other response biases in psychological injury/ forensic disability populations. It presents a new model of malingering and related biases, and develops a "diagnostic" system based on it that is applicable to PTSD, chronic pain, and TBI. Included are suggestions for effective practice and future research based on the literature reviews and the new systems, which are useful also because they can be used readily by psychiatrists as much as psychologists.

    Hernia repair is one of the commonest operations in general surgery. Open or laparoscopic repair of a primary inguinal hernia is a relatively straightforward operation, but more complex abdominal wall hernias demand greater surgical skill and knowledge. The editors have assembled the world's top herniologists to describe and illustrate numerous surgical techniques in detail. The field of herniology has developed rapidly over the last few years. Since the previous edition of this book, published in 2003, new surgical techniques have been developed and many new prosthetic and biologic materials have been introduced. Management of Abdominal Hernias 4e presents an authoritative, comprehensive and fully updated account of the surgical techniques and the available prosthetic materials for performing repair of abdominal wall hernias. Both open and laparoscopic methods are included. It is aimed at general and specialist surgeons in the practice of clinical surgery, as well as trainee surgeons.

    "This book summarizes the great progress in the treatment of cardiovascular disease (CVD). Due to improved therapies, preventive strategies and increased public awareness, CVD mortality has been on the decline for both genders. Unfortunately, the decline has been less prominent for women, and CVD remains the leading cause of mortality for women in the United States and is responsible for a third of all deaths of women worldwide. Management of Cardiovascular Disease in Women provides a comprehensive overview of differences in cardiac problems in women including the challenges and limitations of the available literature. Unique aspects to women's heart health such as pregnancy, the impact of emotional stress and other psychosocial issues are discussed by leading experts in the field. They therefore provide important insight to cardiovascular care in women, making this book an essential resource for a wide range of practitioners including cardiologists, primary care providers, internists, and reproductive healthcare professionals."--Publisher's website.

    This book presents a comprehensive and instructive management plan for physicians who care for CKD patients. Basic aspects of CKD, clinical assessment, evaluation and management of risk factors, cardiovascular disease in the context of CKD, assessment and management of CKD complications, special circumstances in CKD patients, and the path to renal replacement therapy are all thoroughly covered. Diagnostic and therapeutic approaches are presented according to the latest staging system for CKD, with patient care being discussed separately for each disease stage. The proposed management plan is both 'best available evidence based' and 'practice based'. The book also recognizes the needs of busy clinicians by including helpful boxes summarizing the evidence on diagnostic and therapeutic issues and practice pearls based on guidelines. The authors are recognized experts from across the world, ensuring global coverage of the problem, and most have participated in writing guidelines on CKD.

    The risk of cancer increases with age and the number of older adults seeking treatment is rising dramatically in line with the aging population. The care of older patients differs from that of younger adults because of variation in the biology of the tumor, age-related variation in host physiology, co-morbidity burden and psychosocial issues, which might impact the efficacy and side effects of cancer therapy. Management of Colorectal Cancers in Older People focuses on treatment strategies of colorectal cancers and provides guidance on the issues specific to older patients, spanning background and epidemiology, special considerations in the care of older people, therapeutics, and psychosocial considerations. This book offers a thorough review of current approaches to treating older colorectal cancer patients, detailing the special issues and considerations involved. The discipline-spanning coverage outlines best practice and proposes topics for future research. The third volume in the Management of Cancer in Older People series, this book will be of interest to all surgical oncologists, medical and radiation oncologists, gerontologists, proctologists and other members of the multidisciplinary team involved in the care of elderly colorectal cancer patients.

    Management of Functional Gastrointestinal Disorders in Children presents biopsychosocial theory with respect to six groups of functional disorders: disorders of elimination, vomiting disorders, abdominal pain, infant colic, chronic non-specific diarrhea of infants and toddlers, and failure to thrive. It illustrates, through numerous clinical examples, concepts of management developed during 45 years of practice. A satisfactory clinical outcome for pediatric gastrointestinal disorders often depends on the clinician's ability to discern not only the biological factors in illness, but also the unique cognitive and emotional needs that patients bring to the task of healing. This book provides guidelines for integrating the biopsychosocial model, an approach that has been under-emphasized in the literature until now. It includes naturalistic descriptions of functional gastrointestinal disorders, clinical goals, and the theoretical bases for management techniques. Offering numerous real-world examples and tips, this book serves as a valuable resource for pediatricians, family practitioners, pediatric mental health practitioners, pediatric nurse practitioners, as well as pediatric gastroenterologists.

    This book is a rich source of practical guidance on the management of relatively young patients with osteoarthritis of the knee that will assist physicians and allied health professionals in enabling patients to remain active and sustain their quality of life. It provides up-to-date knowledge on the available treatment options, describes the evidence base for each option, and identifies the appropriate timing and indications. The book opens by considering the basic science behind osteoarthritis, which is critical to management. The many nonsurgical treatment modalities are then discussed, with particular focus on the importance of a multidisciplinary approach. Subsequent chapters address the role of surgical management, covering both techniques that attempt to preserve and possibly restore the native knee joint, such as meniscal and chondral surgery, arthroscopic debridement, and osteotomy for realignment of the joint, and those that involve joint replacement. The arthroplasty component of the text encompasses all areas of prosthetic resurfacing, including localized resurfacing, unicompartmental replacement, and total knee replacement. The book has been produced in cooperation with ISAKOS and the authors constitute an international faculty who provide a truly global perspective on the subject.

    This book pursues a multidisciplinary approach, presenting chapters with updated information on various aspects of treatment for patients with neuroendocrine tumors. Authors have been selected from expert centers in Europe and the United States. The goal of this book is to comprehensively summarize recent data and provide inspiring ideas to optimize the care of patients with neuroendocrine tumors. Neuroendocrine tumors are fascinating multifaceted diseases that can primarily localize in many organs with various presentations. These tumors are rare but their increasing incidence renders likely that physicians caring for cancers may have either already faced or may be certainly exposed to diagnose and/or treat a patient with neuroendocrine tumors. Over the last years, novel therapeutic options have emerged for neuroendocrine tumors, profoundly challenging practices that had previously been the standards for decades. These include - but are not limited to - somatostatin analogues, targeted therapies such as tyrosine kinase and mTOR inhibitors, antiangiogenic compounds, but also peptide-receptor targeted therapy or radioembolization. This changing field has generated novel treatment algorithms to guide medical decisions. To better understand and handle the multidisciplinary approaches that are required for optimizing the care of neuroendocrine tumor patients, physicians are now looking for references from experts and comprehensive reviews summarizing current knowledge on treatments for patients with neuroendocrine tumors.

    Managing Cancer Breakthrough Pain is a comprehensive review of cancer breakthrough pain (cBTP) and rapid-onset opioids (ROO), the only treatment approved for cBTP episodes. The book was originally commissioned due to the current rapid growth of the ROO market and the epidemic of ROO abuse. This book will review the historical background and definitions of cBTP and ROOs, assessment methods to determine types of cBTP, US- and EU-approved ROOs, case studies (which will provide practical applications of ROO treatment options), ROO abuse and screening methods, and the FDA-mandated TIRF REMS Access program (Transmucosal Immediate Release Fentanyl Risk Evaluation and Mitigation Strategies Access program). Busy healthcare professionals who have a basic understanding of cancer pain but want to learn more about cBTP and ROOs will benefit from this concise guide that will help them quickly understand the complexities of cBTP episodes and ROOs.

    This handbook is an overview of the diagnosis, treatment and long-term management of diabetic retinopathy, within the context of overall long-term diabetes disease management. Diabetes-related eye damage (diabetic retinopathy) is one of the most common complications of diabetes, affecting approximately 30-40% of people with diabetes. The situation is so severe that in countries such as the US and UK, diabetic retinopathy is currently the leading cause of blindness in people age 20 to 74 years old. Fortunately, there are several existing and emerging treatments on the horizon and with adequate control of the underlying diabetes, this condition can be successfully managed.

    "Gout has been a well-known disease for over 2000 years, and is the most common cause of joint inflammation in adult males. It has become apparent that no therapeutic target based on hyperuricemia outcome had been defined. Very few controlled trials were available to test the efficacy and safety of treatments, and no research on diagnosis and management had been done despite data showing that patients with gout were generally improperly treated even in the hands of specialists. In the last 10 years, good-quality evidence on gout impact and management has grown exponentially, renal transporters have been recently identified, and a number of new drugs have been approved or are under current development. This handbook discusses these developments and the future of gout treatment, which now looks promising."--Publisher's website.

    As the number of people aged 65 years and above rises, physicians are increasingly confronted by elderly patients with impaired renal function, altered drug metabolism and multiple comorbidities. This book examines in detail the nature of renal injury in the elderly and its optimal management. A wide range of key topics are covered, including end-stage renal disease, diabetic nephropathy, acute kidney injury, drug metabolism and renal toxicity, dialysis and its complications and the use of renal transplantation. In addition, the assessment of glomerular filtration rate in the elderly and the role of novel renal biomarkers are carefully examined. Quality of life issues, the significance of other age-related medical problems and end of life care are also discussed. This book will be of value not only to nephrologists but also to general practitioners, medical students, intensivists, cardiologists, pharmacologists and those working in related specialties.

    Low back pain is described as a very common condition that tends to affect about 70% of the population at some point in time with varying degrees of symptom severity. Although definitions vary, sciatic pain is generally defined as back-related pain radiating to the leg (normally below the knee and into the foot and toes) and is one of the commonest variations of low back pain. Patients with sciatica typically experience a more persistent and severe type of pain, a less favorable outcome, consume more healthcare resources and have more prolonged disability and absence from work than those with low back pain alone. Managing Sciatica and Radiculopathies in Primary Care Practice provides a comprehensive, up-to-date overview of the subject and key information for primary care practitioners about low back pain in patients, including definitions and causes, current management approaches, diagnostic and treatment algorithms, as well as clinical practice guidelines.

    The management of critically ill or injured children has become increasingly specialised; nevertheless, the first point of contact for many sick children remains their nearest hospital. Here, the initial management will usually involve emergency department doctors, anaesthetists and paediatricians. Managing the Critically Ill Child is written by anaesthetists and emergency department physicians who currently have a significant paediatric practice. It provides a straightforward guide for non-paediatricians encountering acutely unwell or injured children. This book helps readers apply their knowledge from adult practice to children, and avoid pitfalls where the approaches in paediatrics differ. Written in a practical, concise format, Managing the Critically Ill Child guides physicians beyond the initial emergency algorithms and is essential reading for physicians and trainees in emergency medicine, anaesthesia and intensive care who may be asked to look after a child.

    Managing the Injured Athlete is an innovative clinically-focused pocketbook which aims to support the clinician out in the field, helping answer clinical queries and solve problems when there may be nothing else to refer to. It focuses on developing the clinician's clinical reasoning skills, recognizing that patterns of clinical presentation are the key to problem-solving and formulating a diagnosis. As well as covering assessment, treatment and rehabilitation, the experienced authors discuss the clinician's role within a team, athlete confidentiality, travelling with athletes, drugs and doping issues, working in different climates and return to play considerations. Throughout the pocketbook patterns of positive findings are given as a key to indicate how frequently clinicians can expect to come across certain subjective and objective markers for a given condition. Starts from the point of subjective and objective examination - assessment not diagnosis Highlighted evidence points to solid literature supporting the intervention described Clinical Tips and Further Reading Case studies demonstrate principles of injury rehabilitation in practice Handy, durable format small enough to use in the field and for quick reference.

    Cells of Bacillus subtilis monitor the status of the chromosome to coordinate the initiation of sporulation with DNA replication and repair. When DNA replication is perturbed, transcription of the gene encoding the replication checkpoint protein -- Sda -- is induced, inhibiting sporulation-specific gene expression. Although the regulation of sda by replication stress has previously been studied using transient and chronic blocks to DNA replication factors as well as DNA damaging agents, other kinds of environmental conditions or changes in metabolism might also perturb DNA replication and thus inhibit sporulation. We performed a genetic screen to look for mutations that activate the sda checkpoint and found that many mutations in central metabolism caused a replication stress that activated Sda expression. We have been characterizing two examples in which the Sda checkpoint is active. In the first example, cells lacking the TCA cycle enzyme citB, encoding aconitase, are defective for initiation of sporulation. In the second example, cells grown into stationary phase in the nutrient rich medium LB do not sporulate unless supplemented with additional manganese. As B. subtilis cells enter into stationary phase in the absence of aconitase or when manganese levels are low, the Sda checkpoint prevents cells from initiating sporulation. Since the Sda checkpoint inhibits the initiation of sporulation when the cells are experiencing problems with DNA replication, these data suggest that Sda prevents cells from sporulating when manganese is limited or in aconitase deficient cells because they are encountering difficulties replicating their DNA and hint that the range of situations under which cells are experiencing such stresses is broader than initially anticipated.

    The Manual of Geriatric Anesthesia is a practical guide for physicians, residents, and students interested in the care of the elderly patient undergoing surgery. Although primarily written for anesthesiologists, other perioperative physicians and nurses will also find the information highly valuable. Highlights of the text include concise and clear discussions of preoperative assessment, anesthetic administration, the immediate postoperative care, as well as the more classic 'geriatric' topics such as the hip fracture patient, cataract surgery, postoperative delirium, dementia, ethics and end of life care. Clinical geriatric principles are woven into the text so that the reader can develop skills in geriatrics and develop a broader understanding of terminology and principles used in geriatric medicine.

    Ablative tumor surgery of the head and neck region often results in severe cosmetic and functional deformities. In these cases, microvascular free-tissue transfer enables three-dimensional reconstruction of head and neck defects. The selection of adequate donor tissue and a profound knowledge of the human anatomy and the various harvesting techniques are paramount in ensuring successful reconstruction. Reflecting current surgical approaches, this book presents the most frequently used flaps in head and neck surgery, including detailed overviews as well as their respective pearls and pitfalls. Moreover, each section contains a synopsis and pre-operative checklist. The overlay-technique merges high-quality-photographs with drawings and precisely illustrates the step-to-step descriptions of the different flap harvesting techniques, making this manual in pocket size an unique and accessible reference for both doctors in training and specialists in the field of otolaryngology, head and neck, plastic, maxillofacial and skull base surgery.

    Temporal bone dissection training is paramount to the surgical education of any otolaryngologist and a special rite of passage for those who wish to focus their practice on otology. The complexity of temporal bone anatomy, which is exposed in a stepwise fashion during dissection, holds a particular fascination for surgeons at all levels, while mastery of the microsurgical anatomy remains the most basic attribute defining surgical competence and skills. In spite of the recent progress in surgical simulation, the cadaver bone remains the gold standard and provides an indispensable platform for otological training. The Manual of Otologic Surgery takes the reader step-by-step through routine temporal bone surgeries while maximizing the use of the cadaver tissue. In an effort to improve visual realism, the book provides high-resolution photographs and anatomically accurate illustrations to allow the reader to better appreciate the three-dimensional relationship of the internal constructs of the temporal bone. Special emphasis is placed on describing the latest techniques for cochlear implantation and active middle ear implants. The book is further enhanced by additional links to edited videos of surgical cases and will therefore serve as a valuable reference guide to otologic surgeons of all experience levels.

    An ever growing population of patients are affected by cardiac disease. Most of these diseases are chronic in nature and require long term outpatient follow up. Subsequently, outpatient providers are finding themselves responsible for an increasing number of patients with cardiovascular issues. Appropriate diagnosis and management of cardiac disease is essential to providing high quality care in an efficient manner. There is a wide spectrum of providers involved in the care of these patients, many of which are not cardiologists. The Manual of Outpatient Cardiology is written in a practical, didactic format designed to deliver point-of-care information to practitioners of cardiology and assist non-cardiologists with the efficient management of cardiac disease. Highly illustrated with schematics and useful clinical figures, this book is an essential reference to all outpatient cardiology procedures.

    This manual is designed to meet the everyday needs of the wide range of medical professionals across the globe who play a role in the treatment of children referred because of renal disease. It is an easy-to-use, portable guide that will assist pediatricians, residents, and trainees in making prompt and appropriate first-level management decisions. It will also prove invaluable for adult nephrologists who are responsible for the care of children in many developing areas of the world, and will serve as a teaching guide for experts when training non-subspecialists. Individual sections are devoted to the evaluation of renal disease; fluid, electrolyte, and acid-base disorders; glomerular diseases; tubular disorders; congenital, inherited, and urological disorders; consequences of renal disease; and miscellaneous topics. The text is in a bulleted format with tables and algorithms wherever possible, making it straightforward and easy to read. An appendix includes further important information such as normal values, drug dosages, dosage adjustment in renal failure, drug nephrotoxicity, and dietary recommendations. The complexities of pediatric nephrology like pathogenesis, intricate physiological aspects, and details of advanced management are deliberately avoided since these issues typically arise during tertiary care at a referral center. If you are searching for a practical, comprehensive guide on pediatric nephrology that will meet the first-line needs of all practitioners, whether in developed or developing countries, this manual will be ideal.

    Security sensitive microbes (viruses, bacteria, fungi, and parasites) and toxins, which are often referred to as the select agents and toxins, have the capacity to cause serious illness and death in humans, animals, and plants. Throughout history, these microbes and toxins have been exploited in one form or another as biowarfare and bioterror agents that create fear and panic well beyond any actual physical damages they might cause. Manual of Security Sensitive Microbes and Toxins provides comprehensive, state-of-the-art coverage of microbes and toxins of biosecurity concern.

    This manual of spine surgery has become necessary as a consequence of the rapid expansion of instrumented spine surgery using different minimally invasive and non-fusion techniques. To do justice to this development, the manual aims to present the different techniques to spinal surgeons (orthopaedic and neurosurgeons) in a clear and instructive way using detailed illustrations. The description of different open, less invasive or minimally invasive techniques will provide the spinal surgeon with useful guidelines for their use. The success of any spinal operation depends on good definition of the indications, consideration of the contraindications, technical and organisational factors, good operating technique and correct preoperative preparation and positioning of the patient. These points are presented in this book as clearly as possible and are illustrated with detailed high quality artwork.

    "Vitamin A plays a key role among the vitamins essential for healthy growth and development. Vitamin A deficiency disorders (VADD) are therefore an important part of general malnutrition that in the majority of cases leads to failure to thrive and underweight. Moreover, apart from adverse effects on health and survival in general, VADD can also lead to blindness, called xerophthalmia, and are also frequently accompanied by various infections. Last but not least, it has become evident that even mild degrees of VAD (and all other forms of nutritional deficiencies) have important adverse implications for health and are thus much more widespread than previously assumed. This publication systematically covers detailed and up-to-date information on every relevant aspect of VADD, with particular emphasis on providing an outline of their setting, nature, and significance. In addition to cutting-edge scientific information, the latest available data on the global occurrence of VAD from the World Health Organization is also included."--Publisher website.

    We are on the threshold of a new era in our understanding of that fantastic feat of regulation at the core of life itself--gene expression. The rapid pace of new developments in genome-wide, high-throughput technologies has allowed us unprecedented access to observe multiple stages of the gene expression program for nearly the entire genome. This has revealed a widespread discordance between mRNA abundance and protein abundance for many genes whose expression changes in response to environmental stimuli, and a significant coordination of post-transcriptional regulation for specific sets of related mRNAs at the levels localization, translation, decay, and the noise in gene expression. Despite this evidence suggesting the existence of a coordinated regulatory framework that potentially affects the fate of every mRNA in the cell, our efforts to discern the underlying structure and regulatory themes are hindered by an incomplete understanding of RNA-protein interactions. To advance our comprehension of post-transcriptional regulation, we developed new tools to identify which proteins bind to RNA, which of those bind concurrently, which RNAs are bound by a given protein, and where each protein binds on each RNA. Using our proteomic tools we discovered hundreds unexpected RNA binding proteins, uncovered new RNA binding domains, identified widespread, concurrent binding with several RNA binding proteins, and inferred functional information from the simultaneous binding partners of several RNA binding proteins. We used our genomic, sequencing-based tools to systematically interrogate a large set of diverse RNA binding proteins and we discerned new themes from the resulting data. This revealed significant differences in function, localization, and regulation among the proteins encoded by the targets of a given RNA binding protein based on binding position. These results suggest that the functional consequences of the RBP-RNA interaction are determined not only by whether an mRNA is bound by an RBP but also by the position of the binding site within the mRNA and its relation to the other RBPs that bind the same mRNA. Overall, we found evidence of an extensive regulatory framework involving hundreds of RNA binding proteins, encompassing nearly the entire transcriptome, and extending our understanding of the RNA-protein interactions at the heart of post-transcriptional regulation.

    In response to persistent donor organ shortages, organs from marginal donors, such as expanded criteria donors (ECD) and donation after cardiac death (DCD) donors, are now accepted and have been successfully transplanted, reducing the waiting times for transplantation. Especially in Japan, transplantation of DCD kidneys has a relatively long history because of the difficulty or lack of national consensus in accepting brain death, which has made it possible to accumulate considerable clinical experience. Thus, the current organ shortage has stimulated interest in the use of marginal donors for transplantation. This book, prepared by distinguished authorities in their fields, is intended for clinicians and researchers. It highlights the use of marginal donors as a comparatively novel source of transplantation organs and provides a thorough overview of marginal donors from their historical origins to recent clinical applications, including the state-of-the-art science of organ/donor management, procurement, and preservation. Also provided is valuable information on ABO-incompatible donors which extend the availability of donor sources. Each chapter offers an individual analysis of the optimal requirements for the safe management and preservation of organs, including the heart, lung, liver, kidney, pancreas, and pancreatic islets.

    Understanding the molecular bases of human health could greatly augment our ability to prevent and treat diseases. For example, a deeper understanding of protein folding would serve as a reference point for understanding, preventing, and reversing protein misfolding in diseases like Alzheimer's. Unfortunately, the small size and tremendous flexibility of proteins and other biomolecules make it difficult to simultaneously monitor their thermodynamics and kinetics with sufficient chemical detail. Atomistic Molecular Dynamics (MD) simulations can provide a solution to this problem in some cases; however, they are often too short to capture biologically relevant timescales with sufficient statistical accuracy. We have developed a number of methods to address these limitations. In particular, our work on Markov State Models (MSMs) now makes it possible to map out the conformational space of biomolecules by combining many short simulations into a single statistical model. Here we describe our use of MSMs to better understand protein and RNA folding. We chose to focus on these folding problems because of their relevance to misfolding diseases and the fact that any method capable of describing such drastic conformational changes should also be applicable to less dramatic but equally important structural rearrangements like allostery. One of the key insights from our folding simulations is that protein native states are kinetic hubs. That is, the unfolded ensemble is not one rapidly mixing set of conformations. Instead, there are many non-native states that can each interconvert more rapidly with the native state than with one another. In addition to these general observations, we also demonstrate how MSMs can be used to make predictions about the structural and kinetic properties of specific systems. Finally, we explain how MSMs and other enhanced sampling algorithms can be used to drive efficient sampling.

    "One of the strengths of Marriott's Practical Electrocardiography through its more than 50-year history has been its lucid foundation for understanding the basis for ECG interpretation. Again, in this revision, we have attempted to retain the best of the Marriott tradition--emphasis on the concepts required for everyday ECG interpretation and the simplicities, rather than complexities, of the ECG recordings. During preparation of the 9th and 10th editions, Tobin Lim coauthored many of the 11th edition chapters and served as the primary developer of the digital content associated with that edition. Tobin Lim's input continues into this 12th edition, and David Strauss has led even further into the electronic-based interactive learning experiences. More than 30 of the figures that evolved through previous editions have now been converted through the creative expertise of Mark Flanders into animated movies accessed via QR codes imbedded in the book. David has also collaborated with electrocardiographic educators who are especially skilled in e-based education to add interactive video content to many of the 12th edition chapters. Each of the now 24 chapters is divided (as indicated in the table of contents) into discrete, compact "learning units." Each learning unit begins on a new page to provide blank space for the reader's notes. The purpose of the learning units is to make this book easier to use by allowing the reader to be selective regarding the material to be considered at a particular time. Because the modern student of electrocardiography is primarily oriented to a visual perspective, we have typically begun each page with an illustration"--Provided by publisher.

    Long considered important for professionals working with minority and under-represented populations, cross-cultural competency has become a requisite for all health care providers. As society in the US increasingly diversifies, there is a crucial need to prepare health care professionals to effectively treat this changing population. The Massachusetts General Hospital Textbook on Diversity and Cultural Sensitivity in Mental Health addresses the importance and relevance of cultural sensitivity in US mental health. Prominent researchers and clinicians examine the cultural and cross-cultural mental health issues of Native American, Latino, Asian, African American, Middle Eastern, Refugee and LGBQT communities. The discussion includes understanding the complexities in making mental health diagnoses and the various meanings it has for the socio-cultural group described, as well as biopsychosocial treatment options and challenges. In understanding the specific populations, the analysis delves into overarching concepts that may apply to specific populations and to those at the intersection of multiple cultures. An invaluable resource for mental health professionals, including clinicians, researchers, educators, leaders and advocates in the United States, The Massachusetts General Hospital Textbook on Diversity and Cultural Sensitivity in Mental Health provides the necessary understanding and insights for research and clinical practice in specific cultural and multicultural groups.

    TheMassGeneral Hospital for Children Handbook of Pediatric Global Health is a concise resource for the ever-increasing number of health professionals involved in global health, many of whom spend a few weeks to months or even years providing medical care in resource-poor countries. This Handbook provides practical, evidence-based, hands-on guidance for managing and preventing childhood illnesses when resources are limited in low- and middle-income countries. It also offers a setting-specific understanding and management approaches to the major causes of childhood mortality, including pneumonia, diarrhea, birth asphyxia, complications of preterm birth, and neonatal sepsis. The Handbook providesan overview of childhood mortality, health systems, and the various stakeholders that play a role in the global health arena, and also contains chapters focusing on adolescents who are increasingly recognized as a unique population in whom interventions can go a long way in bothconsolidatingthe gains made in childhood and preventing adult disease. Finally, key topics in non-communicable diseases are covered, including trauma and injuries, pediatric mental health, child and adolescent rights, and oral health. Not meant solely for pediatricians, the Handbookis designed for generalists, specialists, doctors, nurses, other health care workers, and those in training. An indispensable reference for health professionals overseas, theHandbookwill also be a useful addition and resource for academic centers and universities in industrialized nations that are creating courses for trainees who will do clinical electives abroad during their training. .

    Presenting a logical, comprehensive approach to the patient with a massive rotator cuff tear, this book begins with the pathoanatomy and diagnostic work-up for this common injury, including imaging. Both non-operative and operative treatment options for massive tears follow, including arthroscopy, the use of biologics and patches, tendon transfers, and hemiarthroplasty and reverse total shoulder arthroplasty. A practical treatment algorithm for clinicians treating patients with massive rotator cuff tears is also included. Each chapter opens with pearls and pitfalls covering the main key points for quick reference. The overarching theme of this book is that patients with similar imaging findings may demonstrate very different clinical presentations, and the final treatment recommendation should be made based on their complaints and expectations. As such, it will be an excellent resource for orthopedic surgeons, sports medicine and shoulder physicians, physiatrists, physical medicine and rehab specialists, and occupational therapists.

    Mast cells are versatile, tissue-homing secretory cells, which were first described by Paul Ehrlich in 1878. Mast cells have long been implicated in the pathogenesis of allergic reactions and certain protective responses to parasites. Their functional role, however, has been discovered to be increasingly complex and multifarious. Mast cells have been implicated in various cell-mediated immune reactions, being found in tissues from multiple disease sites, and as a component of the host reaction to bacteria, parasite, and even virus infections. They have also been shown to participate to angiogenic and tissue repair processes after injury. The importance of a possible functional link between chronic inflammation and cancer has long been recognized. As most tumours contain inflammatory cell infiltrates, which often include plentiful mast cells, the question as to the possible contribution of mast cells to tumour development has progressively been emerged. In this book, the general biology of these cells, their development, anatomical distribution and phenotype as well as their secretory products will first be discussed. The biology of tumour cells, their structural and molecular characteristics, the specificity of the tumour microenvironment and the development of a vascular network in the tumour context will be analyzed. The involvement of mast cells in tumour biology and tumour fate will then be considered, with particular emphasis on the capacity of these cells to stimulate tumour growth by promoting angiogenesis and lymphangiogenesis. The last chapter suggest that mast cells may serve as a novel therapeutic target for cancer treatment.

    David Riley's interest in the history, methodology, and results of homeopathic drug provings came from his study of homeopathy at the Hahnemann College of Homeopathy in Albany, California. The 69 drug homeopathic drug provings published here, are the result of his investigation of the research methods of homeopathic drug provings that forms part of the basis for prescribing in homeopathy. In Dr. Hahnemann's time the method by which the treatment profiles of homeopathic remedies were determined were called provings, after the original German word Prüfung, which means "test". Scientific research methods have evolved from the early days of homeopathy and Dr. Riley, in an attempt to improve transparency and reduce bias, has incorporated elements of contemporary research methods such as randomization, blinding, and formal good clinical practice guidelines (GCP) into homeopathic drug provings, while adhering to the general guidelines suggested by Dr. Hahnemann and used by homeopathic practitioners and researchers around the world.

    The mitral valve (MV) is a bicuspid valve that allows the unidirectional flow of blood from the left atrium (LA) into the left ventricle (LV). MV disease afflicts millions each year worldwide and if sufficiently severe, surgical therapy is indicated. Surgical repair is currently preferred but valve replacement is often required. Current replacement therapy involves implantation of a mechanical valve, associated with anticoagulation/ thromboembolic complications, or a tissue valve, associated with less than ideal durability. To overcome these limitations, a currently important research goal is to create bioengineered autologous tissue valves. A key component of this thrust is to understand more completely the structure and function of native valves which reliably cycle 100,000 times per day, more than 3 billion times in an average lifetime. Toward this end, this thesis presents, for the first time, the material properties of the anterior mitral leaflet in the beating heart. The methodology used in this research is as follows: Surgical preparation and radiopaque marker data acquisition: 16 miniature radiopaque markers were sewn to the MV annulus, 16 to the anterior MV leaflet, and one on each papillary muscle tip in male sheep. 4-D coordinates were obtained from biplane videofluoroscopic marker images (60f/s) during three complete cardiac cycles. Data were acquired sequentially with repeat control runs between saddlehorn electrical pulse stimulation and intravenous administration of esmolol to study the effect of pharmacological agents on mitral leaflet contractility, and vagal nerve stimulation to assess the potential for central neural control. Inverse finite element analysis: A finite element model of the anterior MV leaflet was developed using marker coordinates at the end of isovolumic relaxation (IVR, when pressure difference across the valve is approximately zero), as the stress-free reference state. Leaflet displacements were simulated during IVR using measured left ventricular and atrial pressures. The elastic moduli in both the commisure-commisure (Ecirc) and radial (Erad) directions were optimized using the Method of Feasible Directions to minimize the difference between simulated and measured displacements. The derived material properties were found to be orders of magnitude greater than previously determined ex vivo material properties. Histologic studies have shown that the mitral leaflets, rather than being simple collagen flaps (as once thought), contain complex networks of contractile elements (smooth and striated muscle; valvular interstitial cells), blood vessels, and both afferent & efferent nerves. The finding of higher stiffness in vivo than ex vivo suggests a mechanistic role for these elements; to modulate the stiffness of the active mitral valve in vivo -- a property necessarily missing in excised, flaccid valves ex vivo. Using the derived material properties, a forward analysis was performed to determine the stress-strain behavior of the anterior leaflet at various trans-mitral pressure gradients during IVR. This analysis showed that the leaflet material behaved linearly over a physiologic range of pressures. It is also shown in this thesis that these leaflet material properties vary over the cardiac cycle; leaflet stiffness is higher during early systole (Isovolumic Contraction, IVC) most likely due to force development in cardiac muscle cells in the annular third of the anterior leaflet, and as this force development wanes during systole, the stiffness of the leaflet drops. Stimulation of the neutrally-rich annular saddlehorn region adjacent to the anterior leaflet was shown to almost double leaflet stiffness, whereas administration of a beta-blocker (Esmolol) eliminated the early systolic increase in anterior leaflet stiffness. The initial homogeneous finite element model of the anterior leaflet was further developed to incorporate regionally varying material properties. This heterogeneous finite element model confirmed that Esmolol selectively reduced leaflet stiffness in the annular region (which contains the slip of cardiac muscle) during IVC and did not affect edge stiffness (which is devoid of cardiac muscle). Saddlehorn stimulation caused an increase in leaflet stiffness values for all regions (edge, belly and annular regions) during both IVC and IVR. Loss of atrial contraction had a similar effect on the anterior leaflet as administration of Esmolol, i.e. without atrial depolarization the leaflet stiffness during IVC in the annular region dropped to baseline IVR values. Finally, the functional role of autonomic nerves in the anterior leaflet was investigated by remote stimulation of the vagus nerve. This study showed that vagal nerve stimulation can result in a decrease in anterior leaflet stiffness during both IVR and IVC. In summary, the findings of this thesis suggest a permanent paradigm shift from one viewing the mitral valve leaflets as passive flaps to one viewing the leaflets as active, potentially adaptive, neurally-controlled tissues whose complex function and dysfunction must be taken into account when considering not only therapeutic approaches to mitral valve disease, but even the definitions of mitral valve disease itself. The improved understanding of the structure-function relationships in these native, active valves could uncover new targets for pharmacologic intervention, as well as provide important insights to improve the future design and durability of tissue-engineered mitral valves.

    Growth and nutrition during the fetal period and the first 24 months after birth are important determinants of development in early childhood. Optimal nutrition and health care of both the mother and infant during these first 1000 days of an infant's life are closely linked to growth, learning potential and neurodevelopment, in turn affecting long-term outcomes. Children with low birth weight do not only include premature babies, but also those with intrauterine growth restrictions who consequently have a very high risk of developing metabolic syndrome in the future. Epidemiology, epigenetic programming, the correct nutrition strategy and monitoring of outcomes are thus looked at carefully in this book. More specifically, two important nutritional issues are dealt with in depth: The first being the prevention of low birth weight, starting with the health of adolescent girls, through the pre-pregnancy and pregnancy stages and ending with lactation. The second point of focus concerns the nutritional follow-up and feeding opportunities in relation to dietary requirements of children with low birth weight.

    Mathematical Neuroscience is a book for mathematical biologists seeking to discover the complexities of brain dynamics in an integrative way. It is the first research monograph devoted exclusively to the theory and methods of nonlinear analysis of infinite systems based on functional analysis techniques arising in modern mathematics. Neural models that describe the spatio-temporal evolution of coarse-grained variables-such as synaptic or firing rate activity in populations of neurons -and often take the form of integro-differential equations would not normally reflect an integrative approach. This book examines the solvability of infinite systems of reaction diffusion type equations in partially ordered abstract spaces. It considers various methods and techniques of nonlinear analysis, including comparison theorems, monotone iterative techniques, a truncation method, and topological fixed point methods. Infinite systems of such equations play a crucial role in the integrative aspects of neuroscience modeling. The first focused introduction to the use of nonlinear analysis with an infinite dimensional approach to theoretical neuroscience. Combines functional analysis techniques with nonlinear dynamical systems applied to the study of the brain. Introduces powerful mathematical techniques to manage the dynamics and challenges of infinite systems of equations applied to neuroscience modeling.

    MATLAB has become the standard software tool for solving scientific and engineering problems due to its powerful built-in functions and its ability to program. Assuming no knowledge of programming, this book guides the reader through both programming and built-in functions to easily exploit MATLAB's extensive capabilities for tackling engineering problems. The book starts with programming concepts, such as variables, assignments, and selection statements, moves on to loops, and then solves problems using both the programming concept and the power of MATLAB. In-depth coverage is given to input/output, a topic fundamental to many engineering applications. The third edition of MATLAB: A Practical Introduction to Programming and Problem Solving has been updated to reflect the functionality of the current version of MATLAB. It features new and revised end-of-chapter exercises, stronger coverage of loops and vectorizing, and more engineering applications to help the reader learn this software tool in context. Presents programming concepts and MATLAB built-in functions side-by-sideSystematic, step-by-step approach, building on concepts throughout the book, facilitating easier learningSections on common pitfalls and programming guidelines direct students towards best practice.

    Computed tomography (CT) has become an essential tool in modern medicine since its introduction in the early 1970s. It generates cross-sectional images of the body's x-ray attenuation by measuring the transmission of x-rays in many directions. Because CT uses ionizing radiation, a governing principle is to use the least amount of radiation dose that still provides diagnostic-quality images. One approach to ensure that dose is appropriately used is to explore the information content of CT scans. This work examines efficient methods for encoding, storing, and extracting information from CT scans, especially as they pertain to spectral x-ray imaging. CT systems that can take advantage of the different attenuation properties of x-rays at different energies can provide additional diagnostic information, known as dual energy imaging. A new technique called Synthetic CT is introduced that enables images from CT protocols other than what was acquired to be retrospectively synthesized. With this tool, the information contained within a dual energy scan can be used to demonstrate the effect of protocol selection on image quality and dose distribution. In addition to experimentally validating the developed synthetic CT theory, further efforts have led to image-based synthetic CT, incorporation of electronic noise models for ultra low dose simulation, and a simple graphical user interface that demonstrates the flexibility of synthetic CT. We also explore an important spectral imaging technology -- photon counting detectors with energy discrimination capabilities. In principle, these detectors capture all the spectral information of transmitted x-rays by counting the number of photons at each energy. Optimal configurations of ideal photon counting detectors are first investigated, leading to the elegant discovery that two energy-dependent weighted counts can form a sufficient statistic for dual energy imaging. In practice, photon counting detectors have count rate limitations and imperfect spectral responses. The performance of realistic photon counting detectors is modeled and compared to conventional dual kV techniques. We find that both optimized photon counting and dual kV systems can significantly increase the dose efficiency of dual energy imaging.

    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.

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.

    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.

Medical Sciences is designed to do the integration for you. In just one book, the diverse branches of medical science are synthesised into the appropriate systems of the human body, making this an invaluable aid to approaching the basics of medicine within in a clinical context. Highly illustrated with clear, full-colour line drawings and colour photos. Information boxes throughout, giving more specific detail of research findings, drug mechanisms, etc. Clinical boxes throughout, demonstrating the clinical relevance of the science. Interactive features of the StudentConsult e-book (PIN access in your print copy) 5 slideshows 34 test yourself 4 slideshow test yourself 3 hotspots 2 guided tours 6 slidelines 435 MCQs (end-of-chapter quizzes and Assessment chapter in e-book)

    Kirsten Ostherr.
    "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.
