The mortality from ischemic heart disease has decreased in recent years. The better under‐
standing of risk factors associated with development of coronary artery disease (CAD) has
significantly contributed to this decline. Preventive measures such as aggressive therapy of
arterial hypertension, diabetes mellitus, and lipid disorders and by campaigning against the
smoking are important components of this medical success.

The recent introduction of Multidetector Computed
Tomography (MDCT) represents a milestone
in the evolution of Computed Tomography,
that started in the decade of 1970. Faster
velocities of acquisition, higher spatial and temporal
resolution, and better image quality are
advantages of MDCT over the former singleslice
systems that allow the development of
cardiac applications on a realistic basis.
Women’s health is a priority population for AHRQ,
meaning women have unique health care needs or
issues that require special focus. The Agency for
Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ)
supports research on all aspects of health care
provided to women, including: enhancing the
response of the health system to women’s needs;
understanding differences between the health care
needs of women and men; understanding and
eliminating disparities in health care; and
providing evidence to inform women in their
health care decisions.
Chambers (1995) described the eight diminution of deprivation among the
elderly as poverty, social inferiority, social isolation, physical weakness, vulnerability,
seasonality, powerlessness and humiliation of the aged. The poverty is sought to be a major
risk of ageing in developing countries (Sen K1994) and study by world bank reveals that in
the most of developing countries the older people and dependent are poor and vulnerable
(world Bank 1994). The linkage between ageing and poverty and deprivation can have three
channels of relations.
Bladder, uterine, and rectal prolapse are common sequelae of childbirth.
Sometimes bulging is obvious on initial inspection, but other times it may
only be evident when the patient bears down as if she were attempting to void
and then defecate. The examiner should be appropriately positioned before
undertaking this evaluation, because some women will lose urine with this
maneuver. For many women with prolapse, diagnosis is only possible after a
more detailed gynecologic examination (see Chapters 10 and 14)....
The belief that children will take care of the parents in the old age is eroding in India where
the family size has been cut down as a result of the demographic process (Dandelkar, 1996).
The situation in the urban areas shows a rejection of older people by the next generation and
this is spreading to rural areas (Desai, 1985). In the nuclear family regime, the position of the
aged becomes more vulnerable and is treated as a burden to the family (Nayar, 1992). The
social negligence of the aged occurs due to cultural, social and economic relations within the...
It is spread mainly by bites of infected animals. The virus present
in their saliva is inoculated in the bite trauma. Foxes are the main reservoir
of the disease. Camels can be infected by dog or fox bites, but the chances
of spread from camel to man appear to be small. Nevertheless, camel bites
in endemic (prevalent in a population or geographical areas at all times)
areas should be regarded potentially dangerous, especially if the animal is
showing signs of unusual behaviour at the time of bite or does so within
next 7 to 10 days (signs such as...
Recent imperfect capital market theories (e.g., Bernanke and Gertler
(1989), Gertler and Gilchrist (1994), Kiyotaki and Moore (1997)) predict
that changing credit market conditions can have very di®erent e®ects on
small and large ¯rms' risk. Agency costs induced by asymmetry in the infor-
mation held by ¯rms and their creditors make it necessary for ¯rms to use
collateral when borrowing in the credit markets. Small ¯rms, it is argued,
typically do not have nearly as much collateral as large ¯rms and will not
have the same ability to raise external funds.
Our goal is to provide food for thought rather than an off-the-shelf solution. Many of the outside practices we
explore are somewhat distant from conventional thinking. We are aware that some of our ideas will be controversial.
We therefore do not necessarily speak of them as “recommendations.
transport limitation in larger tissue may also affect survival. Due to the macroscopic size of
tissue-engineered products and its finite thermal conductivity, there may be large thermal
gradients from the surface to the interior of the samples. The presence of a thermal gradient
during cooling and warming phases makes it difficult to choose optimal temperature
change protocols for both surface and interior cells. Moreover, osmotic effects (water
movement from inside-unfrozen cells to outside-frozen cells) during cooling, reduces cell
Modification of the
surface of these vectors is a key element for their successful research and clinical use.
Chapter three discusses the methods to modify surfaces of retroviral vectors, and the
applications for surface modification of retroviral vectors, such as targeting and
immune modulation. Chapter four reviews the role of the nuclear glucocorticoid
receptor in controlling retroviral infection and function, and highlights its potential
importance in retroviral-based gene therapy applications....
Babies exposed to carbon monoxide during the maturation of their organs may suffer
permanent changes to those organs. Studies using newborn rats showed that carbon
monoxide exposure could cause changes in the heart muscle tissue. This is turn could
increase the severity of effects of artery constrictions when they became adults. Other
animal studies have shown that long-term carbon monoxide exposure can contribute to
a disease called ventricular hypertrophy, in which the cells of the heart's ventricle
chambers are enlarged and possibly weakened.
The 10 problems of least concern are generally issues of limited exposure to most small-busi-
ness owners and typically find themselves at the bottom of the ranking each year. Three prob-
lems are new to the top 10 of least concern and one problem in the group is new to the survey.
“Exporting My Products/Services” holds onto the 75th
ranking, a position held for six of
seven editions that it has been listed as a problem. It moved up one position in 2000, replaced
by the problem “Y2K Impacts.
One of the key decisions in achieving successful freezing of tissue-engineered products is
the choice of cryoprotectant. Cryoprotectants minimize damage caused by ice crystal
formation and should induce an amorphous state, rather than ice crystals during the cooling
and warming phases. Although the use of cryoprotectants is mandatory, currently available
reagents are cytotoxic to some extent. Since tissue-engineered products are larger than
isolated cells, longer incubation times with cryoprotectant are necessary which may result in
a lower survival rate.
