    Haptic feedback stimulates the skin and is useful for conveying information across the human body. Combining haptic feedback with movement sensing and computation in real-time can create a rich and diverse system for characterizing and retraining human movement. This thesis presents haptic gait retraining as a conservative treatment for individuals with medial compartment knee osteoarthritis. Wearable haptic feedback devices, which either vibrate or stretch the skin, are worn on the body and used to inform kinematic changes during walking. The focus of gait retraining is to shift loading away from the arthritic medial compartment of the knee by reducing the knee adduction moment - a clinically relevant measure that has been linked to pain, incidence, severity, and progression of medial compartment knee osteoathritis. Thus, training individuals with knee osteoarthritis to walk in a way that reduces the knee adduction moment has the potential to reduce knee pain, improve function, and slow osteoarthritis progression. Four experiments were conducted to explore the viability of haptic gait retraining. During all experiments, subjects walked on an instrumented treadmill while motion capture data was streamed in real-time and wearable haptic feedback was used to inform gait changes. In the first experiment, subjects received feedback of the knee adduction moment measurement and were given freedom to make kinematic changes to lower the knee adduction moment. All subjects demonstrated the ability to make gait modifications to acheive this goal, though some chose awkward gait patterns. In the second experiment, haptic feedback was used to inform changes to the foot progression angle as subjects were trained to ``toe-in'' more than they normally did. Toe-in gait proved to be an easy-to-learn gait pattern which reduced the knee adduction moment and looked natural. The purpose of the third experiment was to train simultaneous changes to multiple kinematic gait parameters. Subjects received haptic feedback for trunk sway, tibia, and foot progression angles to inform new gait patterns based on correlations between the knee adduction moment and each kinematic parameter. Subjects demonstrated large reductions in the knee adduction moment comparable to more invasive surgical interventions such as high tibial osteotomy. In the final experiment individuals with persistent knee pain and clinically diagnosed knee osteoarthritis participated in a six week gait retraining program to assess learning retention and symptom changes. Subjects demonstrated learning retention and at the end of the six weeks reported improvements in knee pain and function, which were significantly greater than from the expected placebo effect. This thesis shows that haptic gait retraining is a promising conservative treatment option for individuals suffering from medial compartment knee osteoarthritis. Haptic gait retraining has the potential to alter walking patterns which could over time reduce knee pain, slow osteoarthritis progression, and ultimately improve quality of life.

    "Wallach's Interpretation of Diagnostic Tests, 10th Edition serves as a practical guide to the use of laboratory tests which aids physicians in using tests more effectively and efficiently by offering test outcomes, possible meanings, differential diagnosis, and summaries of tests available. The book is organized into 2 sections. The first section is devoted to disease states. Where appropriate, a patient's chief complaint and/or physical findings are initially presented with subsequent discussions focused on discrete disease states as they relate to a patient's chief complaint. The second section is devoted to an alphabetical listing of laboratory tests while stressing the integration of the clinical laboratory in the clinical decision making process. Test sensitivity, specific and possible and negative probabilities are included whenever appropriate. Microbiology tests are listed in a separate chapter"--Provided by publisher.

    In the relatively few decades since the introduction of HIV into the human population, variants of the virus have diverged to such an extent that, were the discussion about something other than viruses, said variants could easily be classified as different species. This book will consider these evolutionary variations, as well as the different and, at times, opposing theories attempting to explain them. It will compare and contrast the ways in which the immune system and drugs affect the virus's evolution, and the implications of these for vaccine development. The issue will be explored and explained through "ecological genetics," which postulates that all living organisms have, besides rivals, enemies. This is divergent from the more traditional school of "population genetics," which emphasizes that evolution occurs among rival species (or variants thereof) that compete for niches or resources in a fixed, unreactive environment. Both models will be formulated using mathematical models, which will be included in the book. Finally, it will consider the possibilities for designing a vaccine that blocks HIV from escaping the immune system.

    Wastewater analysis is a rapidly developing scientific discipline with the potential for monitoring real-time population-level trends in illicit drug use. Originally used in the 1990s to monitor the environmental impact of liquid household waste, the method has since been used to estimate illicit drug consumption in different cities (Daughton, 2001; Zuccato et al., 2008; van Nuijs et al., 2011). It involves sampling a source of wastewater, such as a sewage influent to a wastewater treatment plant. This allows scientists to estimate the quantity of drugs consumed in a community by measuring the levels of illicit drugs and their metabolites excreted in urine (Zuccato et al., 2008).

    "Diseases related to inadequate water, sanitation and hygiene are a huge burden in developing countries. It is estimated that 88% of diarrhoeal disease is caused by unsafe water supply, and inadequate sanitation and hygiene (WHO, 2004c). Many schools serve communities that have a high prevalence of diseases related to inadequate water supply, sanitation and hygiene, and where child malnutrition and other underlying health problems are common. Schools, particularly those in rural areas, often completely lack drinking-water and sanitation and handwashing facilities; alternatively, where such facilities do exist they are often inadequate in both quality and quantity. Schools with poor water, sanitation and hygiene conditions, and intense levels of person-to-person contact, are high-risk environments for children and staff, and exacerbate children's particular susceptibility to environmental health hazards. Children's ability to learn may be affected by inadequate water, sanitation and hygiene conditions in several ways. These include helminth infections (which affect hundreds of millions of school-age children), long-term exposure to chemical contaminants in water (e.g. lead and arsenic), diarrhoeal diseases and malaria infections, all of which force many schoolchildren to be absent from school. Poor environmental conditions in the classroom can also make both teaching and learning very difficult. Girls and boys are likely to be affected in different ways by inadequate water, sanitation and hygiene conditions in schools, and this may contribute to unequal learning opportunities. Sometimes, girls and female teachers are more affected than boys because the lack of sanitary facilities means that they cannot attend school during menstruation. The international policy environment increasingly reflects these issues. Providing adequate levels of water supply, sanitation and hygiene in schools is of direct relevance to the United Nations (UN) Millennium Development Goals of achieving universal primary education, promoting gender equality and reducing child mortality. It is also supportive of other goals, especially those on major diseases and infant mortality." - p. iii

    Irrigated agriculture, a vital component of general agriculture, supplies fruits, vegetables, and cereals consumed by humans and grains fed to animals. Consequently, agriculture is the largest user of fresh water globally, and irrigation practices in many parts of the world are biologically, economically, and socially unsustainable. Water management should balance the need for agricultural water and the need for a sustainable environment. Water-use efficiency is the prime challenge in worldwide farming practices where problems of water shortages are widespread. Currently, agriculture is undergoing significant changes in innovative irrigation, fertilizer technology, and agronomic expertise. These elements constitute a vital platform for sustainable agricultural success and for preventing environmental damage. This review presents several processes linked to environmental irrigation, balancing environmental protection with improved agricultural production.

    The goal of this study is to assist the increasing number of decision-makers in search of the ideal way to create and implement an effective obesity intervention. We carried out a review of systematic reviews of obesity prevention and reduction interventions. This review examined components of studies targeting weight loss to identify which components are most strongly associated with positive results. Understanding the effects of intervention components as well as the intervention as a whole allows program planners to best tailor their review to their environment and target population.

    "As women of childbearing age have become heavier, the trade-off between maternal and child health created by variation in gestational weight gain has become more difficult to reconcile. Weight Gain During Pregnancy responds to the need for a reexamination of the 1990 Institute of Medicine guidelines for weight gain during pregnancy. It builds on the conceptual framework that underscored the 1990 weight gain guidelines and addresses the need to update them through a comprehensive review of the literature and independent analyses of existing databases. The book explores relationships between weight gain during pregnancy and a variety of factors (e.g., the mother's weight and height before pregnancy) and places this in the context of the health of the infant and the mother, presenting specific, updated target ranges for weight gain during pregnancy and guidelines for proper measurement. New features of this book include a specific range of recommended gain for obese women. Weight Gain During Pregnancy is intended to assist practitioners who care for women of childbearing age, policy makers, educators, researchers, and the pregnant women themselves to understand the role of gestational weight gain and to provide them with the tools needed to promote optimal pregnancy outcomes."--Back cover.

    This book represents a daring and rarely attempted endeavor to bridge the gap between histopathology and molecular medicine in that cutting-edge molecular findings are seamlessly integrated into the key morphological features. This volume also includes discussions of short lists of organ-based benign lesions with concerning morphological features. Presented in the differential diagnosis section, they will not only serve as useful checklists for the surgical pathologist who is seriously contemplating a diagnosis of malignancy due to the observation of some cytological or histological atypia, but also help hone the key features of each malignant atypia. Well-Differentiated Malignancies: New Perspectives provides an innovative resource on the difficult topic of well-differentiated malignancies for pathology residents, fellows and for those already in clinical practice.

    This book brings together two bodies of knowledge - wellbeing and recovery. Wellbeing and 'positive' approaches are increasingly influencing many areas of society. Recovery in mental illness has a growing empirical evidence base. For the first time, overlaps and cross-fertilisation opportunities between the two bodies of knowledge are identified. International experts present innovations taking place within the mental health system, which include wellbeing-informed new therapies, e-health approaches and peer-led recovery communities. State-of-the-art applications of wellbeing to the wider community are also described, across education, employment, parenting and city planning. This book will be of interest to anyone connected with the mental health system, especially people using and working in services, and clinical and administrators leaders, and those interested in using research from the mental health system in the wider community.

    Axonal degeneration is a pivotal pathological event in most CNS and PNS diseases, but the molecular mechanisms that control this process remain unclear. Expression of the Wallerian degeneration slow (WldS) transgene robustly delays axon degeneration in various injury models and attenuate disease progression in many neurodegenerative conditions, indicating a common mechanism of axonal self-destruction in traumatic injuries and chronic degenerative events. In this thesis, I examined the mechanism of WldS axon protection as a window to understand the molecular events that orchestrate this axonal self-destruction program. In the first part of my thesis, I demonstrated that continuous, local WldS enzymatic activity in the axon, independent of nuclear gene transcription, is required to confer axonal protection. Furthermore, I showed that injured axons are not immediately committed to degeneration, but rather there is a critical period of 4-5hrs after injury in which the course of degeneration can be reversed. The presence of this latency period before the injured axons irreversibly commit to degeneration suggest that axonal degeneration can be attenuated or halted altogether even long after an injury has occurred. In the second part of the thesis, I investigated the signaling events and mechanisms that are responsible for translating WldS activity into axonal protection. I showed that NAD+, a metabolite of WldS enzymatic activity and a known redox cofactor in the mitochondria, is sufficient and specific to confer WldS-like axon protection. However, WldS axonal protection does not require the axonal mitochondria or involve changes in the bioenergy levels of the axon. I further demonstrated that independently increasing expression of Ca2+ buffering proteins in subcellular compartments is sufficient to delay axonal degeneration, suggesting that enhancement of Ca2+ buffering capacity in axonal subcellular compartments may be one mechanism by which WldS activity or NAD+ confers axonal protection. Finally, comparing the metabolomics profile of WT vs. WldS neurons reveals candidates in mediating NAD+ dependent regulation of intra-axonal Ca2+, and presents potential therapeutic targets to delay axon degeneration. In the third part of my thesis, I investigated the relationship between developmental axonal outgrowth, synaptic targeting and axon regeneration. Using retinal ganglion cells (RGCs) as a model system, I profiled the developmental expression of RGC genes from early embryonic to early postnatal development, a period that was previously shown to trigger a genetic switch to significantly slow the axonal growth rate. In particular, I showed that cyp1b1, a gene implicated in congenital glaucoma, is a potent source of retinoic acid during early RGC development and enhances RGC survival by sustaining retinoic acid production. In addition, several other genes from the expression profiling have been found by others to be involved in axonal regeneration after injury. Together, the findings provide a rich database for understanding the molecular signatures that control the development of retinal ganglion cells, and help uncover genetic factors that regulate axonal growth, targeting and regeneration.

    "Primary care has come into the limelight with the passage of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, the unchecked and unsustainable rise in American health care expenditures, and the crest of Baby Boomers who are now Medicare-eligible and entering the most health care-intensive period of their lives. Yet how much is really known about primary care? What Matters in Medicine: Lessons from a Life in Primary Care is a look at the past, present, and future of general practice, which is not only the predecessor to the modern primary care movement, but its foundation. Through memoir and conversation, Dr. David Loxterkamp reflects on the heroes and role models who drew him to family medicine and on his many years in family practice in a rural Maine community, and provides a prescription for change in the way that doctors and patients approach their shared contract for good health and a happy life. This book will be useful to those on both sides of primary care, doctors and patients alike." -- [Publisher-supplied data]

    Being a patient is a unique interpersonal experience but it is also a universal human experience. The relationships formed when we are patients can also teach some of life's most important lessons, and these relationships provide a special window into ethics, especially the ethics of healthcare professionals. This book answers two basic questions: As patients see it, what things allow relationships with healthcare providers to become therapeutic? What can this teach us about healthcare ethics? This volume presents detailed descriptions and analyses of 50 interviews with 58 patients, representing a wide spectrum of illnesses and clinician specialties. The authors argue that the structure, rhythm, and horizon of routine patient care are ultimately grounded in patient vulnerability and clinician responsiveness. From the short interview segments, the longer vignettes and the full patient stories presented here emerge the neglected dimensions of healthcare and healthcare ethics. What becomes visible is an ethics of everyday interdependence, with mutual responsibilities that follow from this moral symbiosis. Both professional expressions of healthcare ethics and the field of bioethics need to be informed and reformed by this distinctive, more patient-centered, turn in how we understand both patient care as a whole and the ethics of care more specifically. The final chapters present revised codes of ethics for health professionals, as well as the implications for medical and health professions education.

    The purpose of this book is twofold: First, it provides an up-to-date overview of the field of surgical oncology for surgeons in training. Particular attention is devoted to the principles of surgery, but important aspects of radiation and medical oncology are also discussed. Furthermore, diagnostic, staging, and treatment algorithms are presented that will offer invaluable assistance in management decision making. The second aim of the book is to offer a comprehensive reference source on the role of surgery in curative and palliative management for medical and radiation oncologists (in practice and in training) and other healthcare professionals involved in the care of cancer patients. The full range of cancer types is covered in a practical, multidisciplinary approach, and additional chapters are devoted to pediatric malignancies, the role of new surgical technologies, and surgical emergencies.

    On the verge of completing a decade's worth of training as a neurosurgeon, Kalanithi was diagnosed with stage IV lung cancer. Just like that, the future he and his wife had imagined evaporated. Kalanithi chronicles his transformation from a naïve medical student into a neurosurgeon at Stanford working in the brain, the most critical place for human identity, and finally into a patient and new father confronting his own mortality.

    In this dissertation, I investigate when and why gender segregation occurs in the professions of medicine, law and teaching. Drawing on social psychological perspectives on gender and theories on career development, I posit that segregation patterns differ across these three occupational contexts due to differences in gender valence of jobs and structures of career process. Specifically, I argue that early career choices are more gender-segregated in the highly gendered context of medicine and teaching, while the extent of gender segregation may vary (and increase) more substantially over time in the less structured contexts of teaching and law. Using data from professional organizations and government sources, I analyzed careers of a cohort of doctors, lawyers and teachers from their entry into their professions in 1991-1994 to 10-17 years after entry. Consistent with my hypotheses, doctors and teachers displayed highly gender-different aspirations than lawyers, and whereas the level of gender segregation remained fairly constant for doctors, it fluctuated somewhat for teachers and increased substantially for lawyers, particularly after the first six years of work. Analysis of 39 in-depth interviews further suggests that job choices among doctors and teachers reflect deeply held gendered ideas about people and work, whereas job choices among lawyers are seen as series of adjustments to organizational contexts, adjustments that usually differ for women and men. In total, these findings make the case for a more detailed view of intra-occupational gender segregation, one that places gender processes within the occupational context. In proposing a context-driven paradigm for studying gender inequality, this study brings the occupation to the center of the investigation, and argues for a more expansive view of gender segregation that takes into account the meanings and structures that delineate career decision-making and the constraints on the process.

    In this dissertation I provide an empirically based account of the trajectory of right-to-health litigation in Colombia during the past twenty years (1991-2012). Focusing on several critical junctures of this trajectory and drawing from the results of multi sited fieldwork, I reconstruct how a set of stakeholders (policymakers, judges, litigants, activists and pharmaceutical companies) spurred the surge of right-to-health litigation in Colombia, which according to recent estimates is the highest among middle-income countries. Additionally, I explore how a set of structural judicial remedies handed down by the Colombian Constitutional Court in 2008--ruling T-760/08--addressed the institutional determinants of the surge of right-to-health litigation and nudged policymakers in the direction of health-care reform.
