  • This study compares the depicted reality the films present to audiences with previous addiction cinema and with real-world economic and cultural conditions. Since films privilege certain viewpoints through representational strategies and by leaving out alternatives, I also examine the ideologies of the films and issues of textual silence.

  • Viruses are obligate parasites which depend on living cells to multiply. Their ability to deliver stable RNA and DNA into cells has determined their use in gene therapy. In 1983 Mann et al. developed one of the first retroviral gene therapy vectors for delivery in vitro (Mann, Mulligan et al. 1983). This development was followed by many successfully gene therapy trials of retroviruses (Anderson, Blaese et al. 1990; Levine and Friedmann 1991; Blaese, Culver et al. 1993). Now, retrovirual vectors are implemented in nearly 22.2% of clinical trials (http://www.wiley.

  • A risk factor is anything that changes a person's chance of getting a disease such as cancer. Different cancers have different risk factors. For example, unprotected exposure to strong sunlight is a risk factor for skin cancer and smoking is a risk factor for cancers of the lungs, mouth, larynx, esophagus, bladder, and several other organs. Scientists have found few risk factors that make a person more likely to develop adrenal gland tumors. Even if a patient does have one or more risk factors for adrenal gland tumors, it is impossible to know for sure how much that risk factor...

  • We analyze the susceptibility of the Internet to random faults, malicious attacks, and mixtures of faults and attacks.We analyze actual Internet data, as well as simulated data created with network models. The network models generalize previous research, and allow generation of graphs ranging from uniform to preferential, and from static to dynamic.We introduce new metrics for analyzing the connectivity and performance of networks which improve upon metrics used in earlier research.

  • Active follow-up usually means that the registry attempts to contact physi- cians or patients on a regular basis to see if the patient is still alive. Because this is expensive, many registries rely on passive follow-up, matching with death certificates and assuming patients are alive otherwise. Mixed systems use death certificates plus updating the ‘date last known alive’ from hospital admissions, consultations, and other sources of data. Active follow-up of the patients is usually very difficult in developing coun- tries.

The last estimates were provided in a report commissioned by the British Tourist Authority and partners in 1996, which calculated the value of inbound and domestic incentive travel (excluding air travel) to be in the region of £165 million per year.
