Suicide is the eighth leading cause of death in this country and, among young people 15 to 19 years of age, suicide is exceeded in frequency as a cause of death only by accidental deaths....

  • Injuries cause more than half of all deaths among children in the United States. The spectrum of causes varies with age, but blunt forces cause the overwhelming majority of injuries. Children are not just small adults. They differ in many ways from adults. Many of the differences in behavior, risk exposure, anatomy, and physiology have a direct bearing on trauma care. In recent years, this reality has been widely accepted in the field.

  • Solid mechanics, which includes the theories of elasticity and plasticity, is a broad discipline, with experimental, theoretical, and computational aspects, and with a twofold aim: on the one hand, it seeks to describe the mechanical behavior of solids under conditions as general as possible, regardless of shape, interaction with other bodies, field of application, or the like; on the other hand, it attempts to provide solutions to specific problems involving stressed solid bodies that arise in civil and mechanical engineering, geophysics, physiology, and other applied disciplines.

  • Anorexia nervosa and bulimia nervosa are characterized by severe disturbances of eating behavior.

Bulimia nervosa (BN) is characterized by recurrent episodes of binge eating followed by abnormal compensatory behaviors, such as self-induced vomiting. AN and BN are distinct clinical syndromes but share certain features in common. Both disorders occur primarily among previously healthy young women who become overly concerned with body shape and weight. ...

  • The abuse of amphetamines is of national concern from a public health perspective. Review of this subject is timely and important, because the problem of amphetamine-like drugs has recently been amplified by the introduction of designer drugs in the illicit market. There has been an increasing number of attempts by chemists in clandestine laboratories to synthesize structurally altered congeners that might intensify the moodaltering property of this class of compounds.

  • Although advances have undoubtedly occurred, considered reflections about the seminal contributions of Bleuler - and indeed Kraepelin - in this centenary year, may make one wonder whether these treatment advances are a somewhat thin veneer, rather than the step change required. It could be argued that progress has been more due to changes in societal values and attitudes rather than the development of effective novel interventions – either pharmacological or psychological.

  • The pseudomonads are a heterogeneous group of gram-negative bacteria that have in common an inability to ferment lactose. Once classified in the genus Pseudomonas, the members of this group are now assigned to three medically important genera—Pseudomonas, Burkholderia, and Stenotrophomonas—whose biologic behaviors encompass both similarities and marked differences and whose genetic makeups differ in many respects. The pathogenicity of most pseudomonads is based on opportunism; the exceptions are the organisms that cause melioidosis (B. pseudomallei) and glanders (B. mallei). P.

  • As a drug of abuse methamphetamine (MA) has received tremendous press, much of which has been inaccurate. For example people do not become addicted to MA after one exposure; it is not inherently more reinforcing than other drugs with abuse potential. Moreover, treatment for MA addiction can be effective; in fact it often appears to be as effective as treatment for cocaine addiction (e.g., Copeland & Sorensen, 2001; Luchansky et al., 2007). That is not to say, of course, that MA is benign. It is an incredibly dangerous drug.

  • Large numbers of individuals are in need of treatment and support for mental disorders. At the same time, the capacity of the health care system to support caregivers and other resources has lagged behind the demand for services. Over the decades, outcomes for individuals with serious behavioral problems have improved, but much needs to be done to meet current needs. Strategic initiatives to meet this challenge include improving care systems, as well as improving modalities of care—diagnostic, therapeutic, and preventive.
