  • Of course, there is some truth in this answer, and probably much more than “some”. We are in the 21st century, and even animal experiments must be updated and modernized. I am perfectly convinced that preclinical scientists (among whom I proudly list myself) must learn, as they have done for a couple of centuries, new ways of designing and carrying out their experiments.

  • The currently available treatment options for glomerular disorders are not optimal since most of them either respond only partially or poorly so that relapse and progression is often the rule. Inadequate understanding of the factors underlying the development and progression of glomerular injury in various clinical scenarios is primarily responsible for lack of ideal therapies.

  • A pelvic examination that minimizes pain triggers less muscular guarding and therefore can more effectively define anatomy. It is helpful to tell the pa- tient what is being done to her and why in language that is easily understand- able. Apprising the patient of each upcoming action also helps to demystify the examination. The pelvic examination has three components: the external examination, the speculum examination, and the bimanual examination.

  • Tenure legislation also is often blind or hostile to the traditional claims of indigenous communities and disregards their natural resource management systems and rights. Policies fostering the colonisation of indigenous areas – sometimes to divert pressure for land reform effectively encourage colonists to treat land occupied by indigenous communities as “open-access”. 7 State policies have also had a significant impact on the property regimes governing large- scale grazing lands, and consequently on pastoralists’ livelihoods.

  • Federal and state governments have largely failed in their attempts to lower the cost of health insurance or even slow its rate of growth. The hotly debated Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), commonly called Obamacare, was signed into law in March 2010, and was the most aggressive effort to reform the healthcare system ever. But as with most health reform efforts, it failed to address the fundamental causes of rising healthcare costs while opting to focus on coverage.

  • The major clinical symptom of parasitic gastroenteritis is severe diarrhoea. Diarrhoea may result from other causes such as sharp changes in diet, especially at the beginning of the rains. Parasitic gastroenteritis may, however, be linked to the rains through an upsurge in parasite burden at this time. In acute cases of diarrhoea, there is severe loss of body fluid and minerals resulting into rapid loss of body weight and condition. Parasitic diarrhoea can usually be cured by broad-spectrum anthelmintics used strategically.

  • At this point, it is worth mentioning that the paper is solely concerned with the structure of risk in the stock market, not with the structure of expected returns. Multi-factor models of the covariance matrix can still be very useful if economic arguments tie them up to the cross-section of expected returns, as in the Arbitrage Pricing Theory of Ross (1976). Any discussion of the relationship between risk factors and expected returns is outside the scope of the paper.

  • A substantially greater proportion of women with breast cancer are receiv- ing chemotherapy and/or hormone therapy than before 1988. Earlier symptomatic presentation and greater use of adjuvant therapy since 1988 has had a marked impact, reducing mortality rates from breast cancer, in addition to the specific contribution from the NHSBSP. Although some have questioned the value of screening for breast cancer, the scientific evidence demonstrates clearly that regular mammographic screening between the ages of 50 and 70 years reduces mortality from the malignancy.
