  • This book provides information on alternative and complementary therapies that can expand the healing spectrum for individuals with spinal cord injury (SCI). It discusses healing perspectives and paradigms that have not been a part of traditional modern medicine but that, nevertheless, comprised a key component of healing armamentaria throughout much of mankind’s history.

  • The application of evidence-based veterinary medicine (EBVM) can assist in improving and optimising the diagnosis, prognosis, control, treatment and ultimately the welfare of animals. It can also provide the user with a methodology for appropriate, patient orientated life-long, self-directed, learning. To practise evidence-based veterinary medicine we require a range of skills that we may not have.

  • Earlier we presented several lines of evidence that a 67-kDa laminin binding protein (LBP) inLeishmania donovani,that is different from the putative mammalian 67-kDa laminin receptor, may play an important role in the onset of leish-maniasis, as these parasites invade macrophages in various organs after migrating through the extracellular matrix. Here we describe the membrane orientation of thisLeish-manialaminin receptor.

  • The activity of m-calpain, a heterodimeric, Ca 2+ -dependent cysteine protease appears to be modulated by membrane interactions involving oblique-orientated a-helix formation by a segment, GTAMRILGGVI, in the protein’s smaller subunit. Here, graphical and hydrophobic moment-based analyses predicted that this segment may form ana-helix with strong structural resemblance to the influenza virus peptide, HA2, a known oblique-orientateda-helix former.

  • Infectious diseases continue to represent a major diagnostic and therapeutic challenge in the critical care unit. Infectious diseases maintain their preeminence in the critical care unit setting because of their frequency and importance in the critical unit patient population. Since the first edition of Infectious Diseases in Critical Care Medicine, there have been newly described infectious diseases to be considered in differential diagnosis, and new antimicrobial agents have been added to the therapeutic armamentarium.

  • When good science makes an advance it pauses and turns to reacquaint itself with the modes of thought that immediately preceded it. Science orients itself with respect to these modes of thought, examines its connections, debts and disputes with them, decides whether it is operating at a different level of analysis and with respect to different interests, conceptualisations and subject matter. The present volume is a case in point of good science in this sense. It addresses medical pluralism, a founding concept of the field of medical anthropology.

  • As Christine Ammer notes, the underlying assumption of The Encyclopedia of Women’s Health, her classic and concise reference for women’s health, is that “every woman wants to take responsibility for her own health.” By helping us understand how our bodies work, the marvel of our bodies’ normal functions and the profound consequences of its malfunctions, and the care and treatments available to us, she helps us to take charge of our own health.

  • Welcome to my book, which I hope you will enjoy. I also hope you learn many things that will help you for the rest of your life. Have you ever noticed the shape of the average American compared to that of the average Asian? There are more obese people in America than any other country and the problem is growing rapidly. This trend is the result of poor diet and inappropriate lifestyles. Fortunately, we are finally waking up to what the Asian cultures can teach us in terms of health care (acupuncture, herbology, tai chi, etc.); now it is time to learn what they have discovered about...

  • Medicine and dentistry are continuously evolving, due largely to the influences and interactions of new methods, technologies, and materials. Partly because of outdated testing requirements, our students can no longer adequately meet the increasing demands these changes have placed on a patient-oriented education.

  • While the consumption of prestige or status products involves purchasing a higher-priced product to embellish one‘s ego (Eastman et al. 1997), the term ―luxury‖ and the consumption of luxury goods involves purchasing a product that represents value to both, to the individual and their reference group. Therefore, in addition to the socially oriented luxury brand consumption and the human desire ‗to impress others‘, a personally oriented type of consumption should be considered in the marketing management of luxury brands.

  • This paper reviews current marketing practices in the pharmaceutical sector, examining both consumer and doctor-oriented promotion. It presents examples of marketing practices and their impact on consumer and doctor behaviour. It identifies negative impacts of these practices which include misleading advertising, disease mongering and escalating costs. It goes on to argue the need for an independently-monitored code of practice for marketers in the pharmaceutical sector and a greater degree of consumer education for both end-users and those prescribing drugs.

  • Digital cinema resolution is measured in units of “K,” which stands for 1024 horizontal pixels. In the early years of the DCI Specification, the dominant resolution was 2048 pixels horizontal x 1080 vertical, known as 2K. But 2K represents only 7% more pixels than 1920 x 1080 HDTV. Fortunately, a more future-oriented, higher-resolution option was also written into the DCI Specification: 4K. At 4096 pixels horizontal x 2160 vertical, this is exactly four times as many pixels as 2K, and greater than four times the pixel count of HDTV. ...

  • The patient with an amnestic state is almost always disoriented, especially to time. Accurate temporal orientation and accurate knowledge of current news rule out a major amnestic state. The anterograde component of an amnestic state can be tested with a list of four to five words read aloud by the examiner up to five times or until the patient can immediately repeat the entire list without intervening delay. In the next phase of testing, the patient is allowed to concentrate on the words and to rehearse them internally for 1 min before being asked to recall them. Accurate performance...

  • Given the spatial relationships extracted as described above, our goal is to integrate this information into an optimization framework with a properly defined cost function quantifying the quality of the furniture arrangement. Given an arbitrary room layout populated by furniture objects, the synthesized arrangement should be useful for virtual environment modeling in games and movies, interior design software, and other applications. The search space of our problem is highly complex as objects are interdependent in the optimization process.

  • The Parietofrontal Network for Spatial Orientation: Neglect and Related Conditions Hemispatial Neglect Adaptive orientation to significant events within the extrapersonal space is subserved by a large-scale network containing three major cortical components. The cingulate cortex provides access to a limbic-motivational mapping of the extrapersonal space, the posterior parietal cortex to a sensorimotor representation of salient extrapersonal events, and the frontal eye fields to motor strategies for attentional behaviors (Fig. 27-2).

  • The Genetic Map Given the size and complexity of the human genome, initial efforts aimed at developing genetic maps to provide orientation and to delimit where a gene of interest may be located. A genetic map describes the order of genes and defines the position of a gene relative to other loci on the same chromosome. It is constructed by assessing how frequently two markers are inherited together (i.e., linked) by association studies. Distances of the genetic map are expressed in recombination units, or centiMorgans (cM).

  • Lentinula edodes, known as ‘‘shiitake’’ is one of the widely used medicinal mushrooms in the Orient. Antitumour activity of extracts of this mushroom has been widely demonstrated in animals and humans. However, this activity was shown to be host mediated and not by direct cytotoxic activity to cancer cells. This study demonstrates cytotoxic and cell growth inhibitory (cytostatic) effect of aqueous extracts of the mushroom on MCF-7 human breast adenocarcinoma cell line using an MTT cytotoxicity assay.
