  • The sequencing of the human genome has generated excitement about the potential of genomic innovations to improve medical care, preventive and community health services, and public health. Until fairly recently, genetic information was used primarily in the diagnosis of relatively rare genetic diseases, such as cystic fibrosis and Huntington’s Disease, but a transformation in the use of genetic and genomic information is under way. Genetic markers of increased risk for such chronic diseases as diabetes and coronary artery disease have been identified.

  • Today’s nurses enter a realm of opportunities and challenges for providing high-quality, evidence-based care in traditional as well as new and innovative health care settings. The rapid changes in health care mandate that nurses be prepared to provide or plan care across the continuum of settings—from hospital or clinic, to home, to community agencies or hospice settings—and during all phases of illness. Recent research has indicated that nurses make significant contributions to the health care outcomes of patients who are hospitalized.

  • Safe and effective medical countermeasures, including vaccines, drugs, and diagnostics, are critical for responding to large-scale public health emergencies. Such situations, be they natural (e.g., pandemic influenza) or man-made (e.g., terrorism), have the potential to rapidly overwhelm public health and medical systems. America’s national security depends on having appropriately licensed chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear medical countermeasures in its arsenal of defenses.

  • Creating markets for SME business development services does not mean relying exclusively on ‘for profit’ support. Rather, it means recognising that intervention may be justified when it helps to articulate SME needs more clearly, so that a clear demand for certain services is created which markets can provide. It also requires ensuring that commercial suppliers of support are equipped to deal with that demand.

  • There is an urgent need to develop new innovative therapies for the control of advanced cancer. The combination of antigen-specific immunotherapy with the employment of immunomodulatory agents has emerged as a potentially plausible approach for the control of advanced cancer. Methods: In the current study, we explored the combination of the DNA vaccine encoding calreticulin (CRT) linked to human papillomavirus type 16 (HPV-16) E7 antigen (CRT/E7) with the TLR7 agonist imiquimod for their ability to generate E7-specific immune responses and antitumor effects in tumor-bearing mice.

  • Two major influences underpin Michael Shaw’s work, the first is Minimalist sculpture and the theories of Donald Judd; the second is Piero della Francesca and his: book on the Five Regular Solids (Libellus de Quinque Corporibus Regularibus) which describes innovative interpretations of solid geometry.

  • What have been the impacts of the GGDP-generated maize technologies? In the absence of reliable baseline data, it was not possible to calculate quantitative measures of project impact. Based on farmers’ qualitative judgments, however, it is clear that adoption of the GGDP-generated technologies has been associated with significant farm-level productivity gains (measured in terms of maize yields) and noticeable increases in the income earned from sales of maize. Impacts on the nutritional status of rural households, however, appear to have been less pronounced.

  • Private investors can be valuable and innovative partners in maintaining and modernizing critical infrastructure. Our current system of financing, however, has often failed in its attempts to forge viable partnerships with private investors. While the traditional American method of attracting private capital by offer- ing tax-exempt municipal bonds has been successful in many instances and will remain a valuable tool for infrastructure investment, it often leaves many large potential investors sitting on the sidelines.
