Hardly any field of medicine has ever undergone a similar stormy
development to that of the therapy of HIV infection. Little more than 10
years passed, between the discovery of the pathogen and the first effective
treatment! However, there is also hardly a field that is subjected to so many
fast- and short-lived trends. What today seems to be statute, is tomorrow
often already surpassed. Nevertheless, therapeutical freedom must not be
confused with freedom of choice. This book presents the medical
knowledge that is actual today: from December 2002 to January 2003....
The OFT is also bound by the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (the FoIA).
Where a person makes a request in accordance with the FoIA the OFT may have
to disclose whether it holds the information sought and the information itself
(including confidential information). The FoIA contains exemptions (including one
which may exempt confidential information) and the OFT will not have to make
those disclosures if an exemption applies. If you consider that any information
you provide may be exempt from such disclosures you should say so and
As the international community moves toward a more robust recognition of both the
human rights of disabled persons and the reproductive rights of women, the intersection
comprising the right of disabled women to reproductive freedom must be given full atten-
tion. This briefing paper proposes a human rights framework for considering the repro-
ductive rights of women with disabilities, taking into consideration international human
rights laws and instruments and global consensus documents.
Aesthetic Realism class Mr. Siegel explained what I and many people have gone for: “You get a
value out of thinking you are secret and immune. The question is: How much do you want to be
in relation to things not yourself and to the world?” This is a question for every person, whether
on a frozen tundra, a Brooklyn street, or a university classroom.
One of the most moving aspects of the mask are the two curved hands which reach out
from the sides, as though from the depths within. The gracefully curved fingers give the hands a
yearning quality, a desire to embrace what...
In the autumn of 1994, a New Yorker cartoonist imagined a clinical scene
in which a patient who is literally radiant with health, his body throwing
off a nearly blinding aura of wellness, is nevertheless being sternly admonished
by his physician because he has achieved his health the wrong way:
“You’ve been fooling around with alternative medicines, haven’t you?” the
New Yorker cartoons constitute the most sensitive of barometers to shifting
currents in America’s cultural atmosphere.
Navigating the Internet requires using addresses and corresponding names that identify the
location of individual computers. The Domain Name System (DNS) is the distributed set of
databases residing in computers around the world that contain address numbers mapped to
corresponding domain names, making it possible to send and receive messages and to access
information from computers anywhere on the Internet.
In conclusion, although many women may prefer a female physician, it has been
demonstrated that physician gender is often not the most important attribute under
consideration when patients select an OB/GYN. Clearly, good bedside manner and
communication skills are essential in establishing an effective doctor/patient rapport.
This is often followed by technical expertise and a good medical reputation.
Psychologist Margaret Hagen, a professor and medical industry insider, details the very real danger of this booming business. In every state, a child can be taken away from a parent on the strength of five minutes of "neutral" testimony from a social worker. A criminal suspect’s freedom or incarceration can depend on a superficial psychological examination performed by an incompetent, overworked, or, at worst, paid-off psychologist.
The FDA also has jurisdiction over screening and testing of reproductive
tissues, such as the eggs and sperm that will be implanted in human
recipients. Regulations issued by the agency contain strict requirements for
egg and sperm donors, including thorough medical histories, identification
controls, freedom from infectious diseases, and rigorous inspection of the
facilities in which these tissues are handled. Inspectors can order the recall or
destruction of tissue that is infected with a communicable disease.
