- 2010Erin Lynn Barnhart.Actin-based cell migration depends on the temporal and spatial integration of multiple force-generating systems. Polymerization of the actin network drives protrusion of the cell membrane, and the stretched membrane, in turn, exerts force on the actin network. Myosin contraction of the viscoelastic actin network is balanced by cell-substrate adhesion. The molecular components that contribute to each of these forces - actin-based protrusion, membrane tension, myosin-mediated contraction, and adhesion - have been extensively characterized, but the manner in which they are integrated in vivo to give rise to large-scale emergent properties such as cell shape and movement is not well understood. This thesis describes the role of cell-substrate adhesion in large-scale actin network organization and dynamic cell shape determination. Keratocytes exhibit several non-steady-state behaviors, including oscillatory retraction of the trailing edge, waves of protrusion at the leading edge, and symmetry breaking and motility initiation. I have shown that the mechanical and biochemical properties of adhesions contribute to each of these dynamic behaviors. Oscillatory retraction of the trailing edge emerges in fast-moving, fan-shaped keratocytes and I present evidence consistent with a mechanical model in which elastic coupling between the front of the cell and adhesions in the rear drives oscillations. In contrast, I have found that protrusion waves at the leading edge are likely the result of the biochemical, rather than mechanical, properties of adhesions. Traveling waves emerge at high adhesion strengths and adhesion maturation is required for waving. Mature adhesions have been shown previously to bind several components that contribute to leading edge protrusion, including VASP, a protein that promotes actin polymerization by preventing barbed end capping. Dynamic localization of VASP to the leading edge in waving keratocytes is consistent with a reaction-diffusion model in which global depletion of VASP by mature adhesion, in conjunction with local depletion by the polymerizing actin network, results in lateral propagation of protrusion waves. Finally, I present evidence that suggests that balance between cell-substrate adhesion and myosin contraction sets the mechanical instability threshold above which stationary, radially symmetric keratocytes break symmetry and begin to move. On the whole, the work described here represents significant progress towards elucidating the self-organization principles that underly whole cell migration.

- 2013 Springeredited by Yongwon Choi.Bone and the immune system are both complex tissues, which, respectively, regulate the skeleton and the body's responses to invading pathogens. It has become increasingly clear that critical interactions between these two organ systems frequently occur. This is particularly true for the development of immune cells in the bone marrow and for the function of bone cells in health and disease. However, because these two disciplines developed independently, investigators in each don't always fully appreciate the significance of the other. This book is meant to provide a detailed overview of the many ways that bone and immune cells interact. The goal is to provide basic and clinical scientists with a better understanding of the role that the immune system and bone play in the development and function of each other so that advances in both fields will be facilitated. The focus of the book will be both on basic pathways and translational science, which will apply basic knowledge to clinical diseases. Chapter content will range from basic descriptions of the various cell systems and their development to the signals that cause them to interact during normal physiology and disease. Approximately half the book will focus on the role that osteoimmunology plays in the development of human diseases.

Interventions that were once considered somewhat esoteric by some might now be considered part of the medical mainstream. Cochlear implantation is certainly an example of such an intervention. As a consequence of these developments, a need to convey the core fund of knowledge to a larger more diverse group of trainees has arisen. With this in mind, this book was created to provide the basic concepts of otology, neurotology, and lateral skull base surgery in a rather simple, illustrated format for the new student interested in the field. While not intended to replace the more comprehensive, authoritative works in the field, this manual is meant only to create a "jumping on" point for continued study"--Provided by publisher.

Hoyer, The University of Arizona, College of Medicine, Tucson, USA."Today, we are exposed to an ever-growing number of chemicals in the environment and there is an increasing awareness of the effects of these chemicals on the ovaries. As such, the potential for xenobiotic-induced infertility needs to be better understood. Additionally, menopause-associated disorders are of growing health concern in view of the fact that by the year 2025, 19.5% of the population of the U.S. will be menopause-aged women. Exploring research into chemicals that have the potential to cause early menopause by destroying pre-antral ovarian follicles, this book is an essential resource for researchers in academia, regulatory agencies, and industry"--Provided by publisher.

The symptoms of urgency, with or without urge incontinence, usually with frequency or nocturia, now defined as the overactive bladder syndrome, have become a hot topic in urology, gynecology and urogynecology. Epidemiological data show very high disease prevalence (19%), particularly when compared with other chronic conditions such as diabetes (2%) and asthma (7%). OAB symptoms impact severely on patient's quality of life, causing significant impairment of patient vitality and limiting their physical role, similar to diabetes. The OAB syndrome involves all age groups, both sexes and is frequently found in neurogenic patients. This book will cover all aspects of OAB epidemiology, economics, pathophysiology, conservative, pharmaceutical and surgical and is invaluable reading for residents and trainees in urology, gynecology and urogynecology.

- 2012Jessica H. McCoy.The "last mile" of a supply chain is the final step of that supply chain before the product reaches the end consumer. In humanitarian and health delivery supply chains, the last mile represents the final leg of the journey for health care or other assistance to reach beneficiaries, and is a critical bottleneck contributing to the acutely inadequate health care access in resource-limited regions. Operations research methodology can be used to evaluate, lessen, and ultimately overcome this bottleneck. In this dissertation, we present four models developed for this context. First, we develop an inventory model to analyze the interaction between a stockpile and a downstream relief operation for large humanitarian organizations such as the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees. Second, we present an optimization model that explicitly includes treatment adherence when integrating a clinic's capacity decisions with population health outcomes. Our final two models investigate the effectiveness, then the efficiency and equity, of fleet management programs for health worker vehicles (e.g., nonprofit Riders for Health) in places like rural sub-Saharan Africa. Health access challenges are fundamentally supply chain problems, and these models are a first step in using operations research tools to improve health delivery in resource-limited regions. Humanitarian organizations must use their financial resources wisely to carry out their mandates, and models such as these can help organizations make the best use of their limited response resources.

- 2015 Springeredited by Mieczyslaw Pokorski.Cardiorespiratory function is prominently affected by oxidative stress. Cigarette smoking is the archetype of oxidative and nitrative stress and free radical formation. New adverse effects of smoking keep on ppopping up in research. The chapters provide the comprehensive view of new developments in this area regarding cardiovascular and lung function and muscle catabolism. Alterations in inflammatory cytokines and proteins as well as degradation of muscle proteins due to smoking, by far unrecognized, caused by oxidative stress also are presented. Much less is known about the effect of cognitive stress on vagally-mediated cardiorespiratory function and surprisingly, on vagal immune pathway. The experimental studies also show that clinically important meconium aspiration syndrome contains an oxidative trait which is amenable to antioxidative treatment. This volume creates a source of information on the damaging role of oxidative stress in cardiorespiratory function that has by far not been available.Also available: Print – 2015

- 2013 SpringerUrsula Jakob, Dana Reichmann, editors.Many physiological conditions such as host defense or aging and pathological conditions such as neurodegenerative diseases, and diabetes are associated with the accumulation of high levels of reactive oxygen species and reactive nitrogen species. This generates a condition called oxidative stress. Low levels of reactive oxygen species, however, which are continuously produced during aerobic metabolism, function as important signaling molecules, setting the metabolic pace of cells and regulating processes ranging from gene expression to apoptosis. For this book we would like to recruit the experts in the field of redox chemistry, bioinformatics and proteomics, redox signaling and oxidative stress biology to discuss how organisms achieve the appropriate redox balance, the mechanisms that lead to oxidative stress conditions and the physiological consequences that contribute to aging and disease.

- 2016 SpringerClare E. Elwell, Terence S. Leung, David K. Harrison, editors.This book contains the refereed contributions from the 42nd annual meeting of ISOTT. The annual meetings of ISOTT bring together scientists from various fields (medicine, physiology, mathematics, biology, chemistry, physics, engineering, etc.) in a unique international forum. ISOTT conferences are a place where an atmosphere of interaction is created, where many questions are asked after each presentation and lively discussions occur at a high scientific level. This vivid interaction is the main motivation for members to participate and gain new ideas and knowledge in the broad field of oxygen transport to tissue. The papers in this volume summarize some of the outstanding contributions from the 42nd annual meeting, which included sessions on: cellular hypoxia and mitochondria; blood substitutes and oxygen therapeutics; oxygen transport in critical care medicine and disease; muscle oxygenation; multi modal imaging techniques; brain oxygenation and imaging; optical techniques for oxygen measurement; microcirculation; mathematical modelling of oxygen transport; and cancer metabolism.Also available: Print – 2016

- Oxytocin enhances signal-to-noise in hippocampal feed-forward transmission by selective action on targeted interneuron subtypes2012Scott Fraser Owen.Neural circuits throughout the brain are under the continuous influence of neuromodulators which shape network activity in accordance with behavioral context. Oxytocin is a key neuromodulator that has been linked to social memory and maternal behavior in animals, as well as to autism spectrum disorders, trust, emotion recognition and parenting in humans. Here we show that activation of oxytocin receptors sharpens the responses of the hippocampal circuit, increasing the signal of spike transmission through the network while simultaneously suppressing the noise of background spontaneous activity. Both of these actions are mediated through a depolarization of the fast-spiking interneurons. The resulting increase in inhibitory tone serves to silence spontaneous activity in the CA1 pyramidal cells, while a use-dependent depression of the inhibitory synapses permits enhanced feed-forward spike transmission. Furthermore, we show that oxytocin potently modulates spontaneous hippocampal Sharp-Wave Ripple oscillations in a slice preparation. These results elucidate the action of oxytocin in the hippocampus, while simultaneously shedding light on a novel mechanism by which modulation of fast-spiking interneurons can modify hippocampal circuit activity.
