  • Heat 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 survival.

  • Vibration training and vibration therapy, also known as whole body vibration (WBV), biomechanical stimulation (BMS), and biomechanical oscillation (BMO) date back to ancient Greece. Recently, vibration training has been reinvented as a new form of exercise that is becoming more frequently used to improve muscle strength, power and flexibility as well as coordination. Increasingly, WBV can be encountered in different wellness, fitness and rehabilitation centres as well as medical centres.

  • When I began research for the Nutrition Almanac in the early seventies, scientific information on health and nutrition was scarce and difficult to find. In recent years, however, there has been a plethora of studies and most are easier to access. The database of the National Library of Medicine, for example, lists over 40,000 articles specifically on alternative medicine. Alternative therapies focus on the underlying cause.

  • 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 medicine....

  • Over the past few decades the field of neurology has seen spectacular developments in diagnostic techniques, most vividly exemplified by modern neuroimaging and molecular genetics. Although not always at the same speed this evolution has gone hand in hand with an enlarging armentarium of effective therapies to treat neurological disease.

  • Like every artistic process, virtual sculpture (see figure 1 for example), requires a strong interaction between the artist and his artwork. Feeling the material being modeled enforces the metaphor of sculpting and the immersion of the user, making the creative activity easier. The need for haptic feedback is even stronger when the user visualizes his 3D sculpture on a standard screen: without force feedback, correctly positioning an editing tool with respect to the sculpture is difficult, since it may require changing the viewpoint several times to check the tool’s position....

  • The successful completion of any human physical movement requires the transformation of chemical energy into mechanical energy in skeletal muscles at rates appropriate to their needs. The source of this chemical energy is the hydrolysis of adenosine triphosphate (ATP). However, the amount of ATP stored in skeletal muscle is limited and would only last for a few seconds of contraction. Therefore, the ATP must be regenerated continuously at the same rate as it is broken down if the work rate is to be maintained for a prolonged period of time....

  • Movement disorders represent major causes of neurological disability and eventual mortality affecting millions of people across the globe. From Parkinson’s disease to spasticity, these neurological disorders devastate young and old worldwide. While progress continues to be made toward effective treatment, many limitations remain. The combination of the limitation of medical therapy and surgical technological advances have, however, led to an exponential growth in functional neurosurgery in the last 5 years.

  • Ever since their discovery adenoviruses have proven to be a tremendous asset to biologists. Through the study of the adenoviruses, we have learned not only about the virus structures, mechanisms of viral replication, but also about eukaryotic gene expression, alternative splicing, regulation of cell cycle progression, and apoptosis. In the last five years, there has been an explosion in the use of adenoviruses as vectors for gene transfer to a variety of mammalian cells.

  • Chapter 8 What prescription medications are used for fecal incontinence and how do they work? Hyoscyamine (Levbid, NuLev), dicyclomine (Bentyl), clindium, and atropine (Lomotil); opiates such as codeine, cholestyramine (Questran). These drugs produce constipation by slowing the movement of the intestine and promoting increased fluid absorption. When the stools are dry and firm, they are less likely to leak out of the anus.

  • 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.
