For 250 years, veterinary medicine and its scientific underpinning, veterinary
science, have struggled to gain the confidence and respect of clients, fellow
health scientists and practitioners, and the general public. And it has been
accomplished by means of the scientific method and strict objectivity. To
embrace unproven or even discredited “complementary and alternative” techniques
surely is regressive both for patients and for veterinarians.

Samael Aun Weor, founder of the International Gnostic Movement and author of sixty books, lived for many years in close contact with the mysterious natives of the Sierra Nevada of South America.
The history of sleep medicine and sleep research can be
summarized as a history of remarkable progress and, at
the same time, a history of remarkable ignorance. Since
the publication of the second edition in 1999 enormous
progress has been made in all aspects of sleep science
and sleep medicine. I am pleased to see these rapid
advances in sleep medicine and growing awareness about
the importance of sleep and its dysfunction amongst the
public and the profession.
Sesbania mosaic virus (SeMV) is a single-stranded positive-sense RNA
plant virus belonging to the genus Sobemovirus. The movement protein
(MP) encoded by SeMV ORF1 showed no significant sequence similarity
with MPs of other genera, but showed 32% identity with the MP of South-ern bean mosaic virus within the Sobemovirus genus.

How is this similar to the cultural appropriation of Native images and practices by
the New Age movement? I will use the example of one practice, “the vision quest,”
a ritual found in Lakota culture.... When this ritual is brought into New Age
context, its meaning and power are altered. The focus shifts to white people’s needs
and vision, which in most New Age venues are about individual growth and
prosperity. There is no accountability to a community, particularly any Native
The field of biomedical engineering has expanded markedly in the past ten years. This growth
is supported by advances in biological science, which have created new opportunities for
development of tools for diagnosis and therapy for human disease. The discipline focuses
both on development of new biomaterials, analytical methodologies and on the application of
concepts drawn from engineering, computing, mathematics, chemical and physical sciences
to advance biomedical knowledge while improving the effectiveness and delivery of clinical
After the publication of Emergency Neurology: Principles and Practice, many emergency
medicine residents inquired whether a handbook based on the main text
would be available. As a result, we developed a handbook to be carried by emergency
physicians, extending our initial goal of disseminaing the principles of
emergency neurology to emergency physicians and providing a ready resource
in caring for patients with neurological emergencies. As we embarked upon the
handbook project, we realized that this is a daunting challenge.
Research and development in bioengineering and medical technology, conducted during
recent decades, have led to spectacular progress in clinical medicine. These
achievements have triggered an enormous increase in the number of courses offered in
the areas of bioengineering, clinical technology and medical informatics; nowadays,
most major universities offer curricula oriented towards these fields. The majority of
participants however come from engineering backgrounds and so modules dealing with
basic biological and medical sciences have been included.
Communities can play a lead role in assessing and reducing community-level advertising and
marketing of unhealthy foods. Important lessons regarding community-based research and
advocacy to address marketing of unhealthy products can be borrowed from the alcohol and
tobacco control movements. Community-based efforts to decrease excessive advertising and
availability of alcohol and tobacco products, particularly in low-income communities, provide a
useful case study in how communities can influence marketing practices. ...
Harrison's Internal Medicine Chapter 23. Weakness and Paralysis
Weakness and Paralysis: Introduction Normal motor function involves integrated muscle activity that is modulated by the activity of the cerebral cortex, basal ganglia, cerebellum, and spinal cord. Motor system dysfunction leads to weakness or paralysis, which is discussed in this chapter, or to ataxia (Chap. 368) or abnormal movements (Chap. 367). The mode of onset, distribution, and accompaniments of weakness help to suggest its cause.
Weakness is a reduction in the power that can be exerted by one or more muscles.
Bone pain is the most common symptom in myeloma, affecting nearly 70% of patients. The pain usually involves the back and ribs, and unlike the pain of metastatic carcinoma, which often is worse at night, the pain of myeloma is precipitated by movement. Persistent localized pain in a patient with myeloma usually signifies a pathologic fracture. The bone lesions of myeloma are caused by the proliferation of tumor cells, activation of osteoclasts that destroy bone, and suppression of osteoblasts that form new bone.
Despite our best intentions, most of what constitutes modern medical
imaging practice is based on habit, anecdotes, and scientific writings that
are too often fraught with biases. Best estimates suggest that only around
30% of what constitutes “imaging knowledge” is substantiated by reliable
scientific inquiry. This poses problems for clinicians and radiologists,
because inevitably, much of what we do for patients ends up being inefficient,
inefficacious, or occasionally even harmful.

Trauma to the Cervical Spine
Trauma to the cervical spine (fractures, subluxation) places the spinal cord at risk for compression. Motor vehicle accidents, violent crimes, or falls account for 87% of spinal cord injuries (Chap. 372). Immediate immobilization of the neck is essential to minimize further spinal cord injury from movement of unstable cervical spine segments. A CT scan is the diagnostic procedure of choice for detection of acute fractures.
Migraine, the second most common cause of headache, afflicts approximately 15% of women and 6% of men. It is usually an episodic headache that is associated with certain features such as sensitivity to light, sound, or movement; nausea and vomiting often accompany the headache.
A useful description of migraine is a benign and recurring syndrome of headache associated with other symptoms of neurologic dysfunction in varying admixtures (Table 15-3). Migraine can often be recognized by its activators, referred to as triggers.
Referred Pain from Visceral Disease
Diseases of the thorax, abdomen, or pelvis may refer pain to the posterior portion of the spinal segment that innervates the diseased organ. Occasionally, back pain may be the first and only manifestation. Upper abdominal diseases generally refer pain to the lower thoracic or upper lumbar region (eighth thoracic to the first and second lumbar vertebrae), lower abdominal diseases to the midlumbar region (second to fourth lumbar vertebrae), and pelvic diseases to the sacral region.
Physiologic Vertigo This occurs in normal individuals when (1) the brain is confronted with an intersensory mismatch among the three stabilizing sensory systems; (2) the vestibular system is subjected to unfamiliar head movements to which it is unadapted, such as in seasickness; (3) unusual head/neck positions, such as the extreme extension when painting a ceiling; or (4) following a spin.
