  • This book is part of the Green Chemistry series published by the Royal Society of Chemistry, and is designed to provide a modern overview of the current status of insecticides. We present the current approaches for insect pest control as green alternatives to classical agrochemicals, which should be of interest to a vast group of researchers: agrochemists, biochemists, chemists, toxicologists, etc. Throughout the book, the different approaches to pest control which involve ‘‘greener chemicals’’ in particular are emphasized.

  • Harrison’s Principles of Internal Medicine has a long and dis- tinguished tradition in the field of hematology. Maxwell Wintrobe, whose work actually established hematology as a distinct subspecialty of medicine, was a founding editor of the book and participated in the first seven edi- tions, taking over for Tinsley Harrison as editor-in-chief on the sixth and seventh editions. Wintrobe, born in 1901, began his study of blood in earnest in 1927 as an assistant in medicine at Tulane University in New Orleans.

  • Victor McLaglen, the rambunctious leading man and later character actor in American films, especially those of the legendary director John Ford, played so many swaggering drunks and sentimen- tal Irish sergeants that film critics dubbed him the British-born Wal- lace Beery. The film critic David Thomson, who was less than gen- erous in his overall summation of Victor McLaglen’s later film ca- reer, wrote: “Self-pity and barroom Irish bravado were the keys to his work.”

  • A range of factors contributed to this situation, such as the lack of access to basic health facilities - only 40% of the population is in the coverage areas of basic health facilities, and only 9% of rural households surveyed in 2003 reported a health facility in their village;1 lack of female staff at the existing facilities particularly in rural areas; marked rural-urban disparities in availability of health facilities; and lack of infrastructure (roads and transport) and security that reduce mobility and access.

  • The rickettsiae are a heterogeneous group of small, obligately intracellular, gram-negative coccobacilli and short bacilli, most of which are transmitted by a tick, mite, flea, or louse vector. Except for louse-borne typhus, humans are incidental hosts. Among rickettsiae, Coxiella burnetii, Rickettsia prowazekii, and R. typhi have the well-documented ability to survive for an extended period outside the reservoir or vector and to be extremely infectious: inhalation of a single Coxiella microorganism can cause pneumonia. High infectivity and severe illness after inhalation make R.

  • Over the last decade in the WHO European Region the health profes- sions have been under some pressure to promote patient education* as a major addition to pharmacological, physical and other forms of thera- py. Nevertheless, health care providers still need efficient educational programmes* in the long-term management* of chronic diseases*. Cur- rent programmes do not usually include educational methods or psy- chological support of patients. Their methodology has never been adequately formalized and this creates difficulties in educating other health care providers*.

  • This study has focused on cardio-respiratory illnesses caused by the principal components of smog, namely ozone and air-borne particulate matter. 2 Smog consists of a complex “soup” of pollutants, some of which may cause human health problems directly and others which may be precursors to causal contaminants or which are closely correlated with causal contaminants and hence act as “markers” for human health risks. The complexities associated with the cause/effect relationships between this soup of pollutants and human health are explored in this report.

  • Some men choose to live in crowded cities;--others are pleased with the peaceful quiet of a country farm; while some love to roam through wild forests, and make their homes in the wilderness. The man of whom I shall now speak, was one of this last class. Perhaps you never heard of DANIEL BOONE, the Kentucky rifleman. If not, then I have a strange and interesting story to tell you. If, when a child was born, we knew that he was to become a remarkable man, the time and place of his birth would, perhaps, be always remembered. But as this can not be known,...

  • There are changes in the clinical presentation of the co-infected patient as compared to when each infection is present individually. There may be different symptoms and atypical signs. There may be decreased reliability of standard diagnostic tests, and most importantly, there is recognition that chronic, persistent forms of each of these infections do indeed exist. As time goes by, I am convinced that even more pathogens will be found.

  • Population displacement caused by cyclone damage and flooding can result in overcrowding in resettlement areas, raising the risk of transmission of certain communicable diseases. Measles (see section below on vaccine-preventable diseases), ARI, diphtheria and pertussis are transmitted from person to person through respiratory droplets, and the risks are increased in situations of forced relocation to shared areas which are overcrowded and have inadequate ventilation. Overcrowding can also increase the likelihood of transmission of meningitis, waterborne and vector-borne diseases.

  • The good news is that more and more content is being “born digital” without the need for scanning. We expect that, over time, more and more information will arrive digitally, including bills, correspondence, financial statements, music, and photos. Articles in professional journals, newspapers, and magazines are perhaps the most valuable content that a professional and many of these are available digitally now. RSS feeds from professional organizations will improve this situation.

  • Malaria and other vector-borne diseases are major contrib- utors to the total global burden of disease and a significant impediment to socioeconomic development in resource- poor countries. Although vector control has a proven record of saving lives by preventing, reducing or eliminating transmission, its benefits are far from being fully realized. The Global Strategic Framework for Integrated Vector Management (IVM) provides a basis for strengthening vector control in a manner that is compatible with national health systems.

  • In 2004, more than 6,660,000 babies were born in North America. Just over 60 percent of these babies were born in the United States, 33 percent in Mexico, and 5 percent in Canada. Between 1994 and 2004, the number of babies born in the United States increased slightly (by just over 4 percent) while Mexico and Canada saw a decrease—11 percent and 25 percent, respectively. 1,2 Health during pregnancy, birth, and infancy provides the foundation for optimal development and well-being throughout childhood and youth.

  • TB incidence in the United States decreased during the past decade, largely as a result of more intensive TB control efforts. Nevertheless, TB control remains a public health priority for correctional systems, since TB outbreaks continue to occur in U.S. jails and prisons. Furthermore, a significant proportion of TB cases in the U.S. occur among persons who are over-represented in certain jails or prisons, including racial/ethnic minority populations, persons with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection, and persons born in foreign countries that have high rates of TB.

  • Since a modeled loss trigger mechanism takes other variables into account that can affect the value of the losses, the pricing of a hypothetical CAT bond with a modeled-index loss trigger for earthquakes in Mexico is also examined in this paper. This new approach is also fundamentally driven by the desire to mini- mize the basis risk borne by the sponsor, while remaining non-indemnity based.

  • In order to draw a complete picture of the total morbidity costs, individually borne private costs and the costs borne collectively, e.g. by a social security system, have to be considered. All components together constitute the social costs of morbidity. Similar to the methodological possibilities for the monetary valuation of mortality, the morbidity may be assessed with different methodological approaches. For the costs of illness (COI) containing the production loss and medical treatment costs, the damage cost approach is used.

  • Hydroxyurea treatment helps the red blood cells stay round and fl exible. This lets them travel more easily through tiny blood vessels. In part, this happens because hydroxyurea increases the amount of fetal hemoglobin (Hb F) in red blood cells. Newborn babies have Hb F when they are born. Hb F helps protect them from sickle cell complications (health problems) during the fi rst few months of life. With an increased amount of Hb F, red blood cells are less likely to change into the sickle or banana shape. In most people, the amount of Hb F decreases...
