  • Is the value of reducing environmental risk greater for children than for adults? If so, what does this mean for policy makers? This report, the final output of the Valuation of Environment-Related Health Impacts (VERHI) project, presents new research findings on these key environmental policy questions. The authors estimate a "VSL" (Value of a Statistical Life) for children and adults based on new methodological approaches for valuing children’s health.

  • Given the unusual circumstances of Cambodia and their likely impacts on the older population, considerable effort was made to develop a survey questionnaire that not only would cover the standard issues about elderly economic, social and physical well-being that are the focus of recent surveys of older age populations in the region but also issues specific for the situation in Cambodia.

  • We report the results of experiments on economic decisions with two populations, one of healthy elderly individuals (average age 82) and one of younger students (average age 20). We examine confidence, decisions under uncertainty, differences between willingness to pay and willingness to accept and the theory of mind (strategic thinking). Our findings indicate that the older adults’ decision behavior is similar to that of young adults, contrary to the notion that economic decision making is impaired with age.

  • These adult ESOL learners may reside in the United States perma- nently, or in some cases for indefi nite but long periods of time (in contrast to international university students who are typically expected to return to their home countries). Also included here are the adult children of these immigrants and refugees—children who arrived in the United States late enough in life that their own spoken English is noticeably nonnative and not their dominant language.

  • In the ubiquitous learning environment, learners in the single mode group encountered higher extraneous cognitive load due to the lack of text support. On the other hand, learners in the double mode group had lower extraneous cognitive load because they received support from text. Some learners learning with double mode needed only to overcome intrinsic cognitive load from the material itself. Hence, learners learning with...

  • This study was designed to describe the radiological findings of extensively drug-resistant (XDR) pulmonary tuberculosis (TB) and to compare the observed findings with findings of drug-sensitive (DS) and non-XDR multidrug- resistant (MDR) TB in non-AIDS patients. Materials and Methods: From September 1994 to December 2007, 53 MDR TB patients (M:F = 32:21; mean age, 38 years) and 15 XDR TB non-AIDS patients (M:F = 8:7; mean age, 36 years) were enrolled in the study. All of the MDR TB patients had received no treatment or less than one month of anti-TB treatment.

  • The health impacts of a range of air pollutants are evaluated in this paper. However, to avoid double counting, it follows Kunzli et al. (1999) in using PM10 (particulate matter with an equivalent aerodynamic diameter of 10 µm or less) as the single indicator (the index pollutant) of the health impacts of common ambient air pollutants, and including non-overlapping health endpoints2 only when calculating the total health impact of air emissions.

  • Based upon the most recent studies, it is now apparent that ozone plays an important role in causing acute health effects, such as heightening asthma symptoms and developing bronchitis symptoms. The role of ozone in producing long-term or chronic effects is less clear, at least from the available epidemiological studies. However, laboratory animal studies suggest that there can be long-term consequences. How to Reduce Ozone Exposure The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has recommended that ozone should not exceed 0.08 ppm averaged over an 8-hr period.

  • Guidelines are never intended to supersede profes- sional judgment; rather, they may be viewed as a relative constraint on individual clinician discretion in a particu- lar clinical circumstance. Less frequent variation in prac- tice is expected for a strong recommendation than might be expected with a recommendation. Options offer the most opportunity for practice variability. 30 Clinicians should always act and decide in a way that they believe will best serve their patients’ interests and needs, regard- less of guideline recommendations.

  • It also limits their ability to develop livelihoods that do not depend on natural resources, or to obtain wage-earning jobs. Thus, improved access to education is critical to lower rural poverty and decrease the dependence of rural poor on natural resources for their livelihood. In many countries girl children are less likely to go to school, and more likely to drop out early, because of economic and cultural pressures. This differentially affects their livelihood opportunities as they become adults.

  • Chickenpox or Shingles (Varicella Virus)--First-time exposure to this virus during pregnancy may cause miscarriage, multiple birth defects, and severe disease in newborns. Chickenpox can be a serious illness in adults. Most people (90% to 95% of adults) were exposed to chickenpox as children and are immune. For women who do not know if they had chickenpox as a child, a blood test can verify if they are immune. If they are not immune, a chickenpox vaccine is now available.

  • M. tuberculosis is carried in airborne particles, called droplet nuclei, of 1–5 microns in diameter. Infectious droplet nuclei are generated when persons who have pulmonary or laryngeal TB disease cough, sneeze, shout, or sing. Depending on the environment, these tiny particles can remain suspended in the air for several hours. M. tuberculosis is transmitted through the air, not by surface contact. Transmission occurs when a person inhales droplet nuclei containing M.

  • Opportunity: Cancer is the leading cause of death in Canadian children beyond the neonatal period. One in 400 Canadian adults are survivors of childhood cancer, and more than two-thirds experience chronic and/or late-occurring health problems, that often are not clinically apparent until decades after treatment. 10 Non-random molecular or cytogenetic events are found in 50% of childhood cancers, and many types of childhood cancers are associated with congenital anomalies, or family cancer history, suggesting a strong genetic basis for the etiology of cancer in children.

  • Currently, adult cells seem to have certain advantages regarding rapid clinical translation. Most biomaterials used in Tissue Engineering are based on acellular matrices or polyglycolic acid. Both materials must provide tissue support until the cells produce their own extracellular matrix. Ideally, they degrade thereafter without any toxic byproducts. Over the last years we started to understand the influence of the biomechanical environment allowing these cell-biomaterial composites to unfold their full functional potential.

  • When retrograde dissociative amnesia is accompanied by suddenly leaving the customary environment and compromised knowledge about personal identity – the condition is named dissociative fugue. Fugues have been reported for over a century, though they were frequently erroneously associated with epilepsy (e.g., Burgl, 1900; Donath, 1899). A century ago, these conditions were named Wanderlust in Germany (cf e.g. Burgl, 1900). Fugue states were described to be preponderant in children and young adults (Dana, 1894; Donath, 1908).
