People who get systemic radiation also may feel
very tired. They may be more likely to get infections.
If you have radiation therapy and chemotherapy at
the same time, your side effects may be worse. The
side effects can be distressing. You can talk with your
doctor about ways to relieve them.
You may find it helpful to read NCI’s booklet
Radiation Therapy and You. Page 46 tells how to get
Viruses present a more difficult problem of chemotherapy than do higher organisms, e.g. bacteria, for they are intracellular parasites that use the metabolism of host cells. Highly selective toxicity is, therefore, harder to achieve. Identification of differences between viral and human metabolism has led to the development of effective antiviral agents, whose roles are increasingly well defined.
Fieldwork took place in two main stages. The first stage took place in April 2004 in Phnom Penh where
400 interviews were conducted and the second stage in July and August 2004 in the five provinces and
involved 800 interviews. In addition, because of problems encountered during the initial fieldwork in
Phnom Penh, supplemental interviewing was undertaken in June, August and September. This resulted in
an additional 73 interviews, making the total Phnom Penh sample size 473.
A detailed description of response rates is provided in Appendix C. Refusal rates were 8.
In this chapter I will review the current status of treatment for schizophrenia in terms of
effectiveness and safety, and discuss what treatment advances have been made in the last
century, and how treatment interventions might and should develop as the 21st century
cluding confounding variables (such as the economic position of the
household, the schooling level of the father or the roles played by mass media rather than schools)
usually reinforces the conclusion of an independent role of the schooling of the mother. However,
attempts at unpicking the pathways through which girls’ schooling might have the effects on their later
lives that is ascribed to it have been less successful.
The Social Insurance Institution was established in 1934 by means of an Ordinance
of the President of the Republic of Poland of 24 October 1934 on the amendment of the Law of
28 March 1933 on social insurance. In accordance with the Ordinance, 5 insurance institutions
have been merged (Social Insurance Chamber, Sickness Insurance Institution, Accident Insur-
ance Institution, White-Collar Employees’ Insurance Institution, Blue-Collar Workers’ Insurance
Overcoming the current challenges and fostering further capital market development will
require efforts across a broad policy front. Significant efforts to realize this crucial agenda
are underway and could be deepened further. A sine qua non is to continue to further
entrench the important and hard-won gains on macro stability that Brazil has achieved in the
last years, including on the fiscal responsibility and inflation targeting frameworks.
Results of an American study support the theory of a rather strong genetic influence on
risk of prostate cancer. The study compared patterns of prostate cancer among black and
white men (Chu et al., 2003). Black Americans had substantially higher prostate cancer
rates than white Americans, but the longitudinal trends such as decreasing mortality,
increasing incidence and survival were similar. Although this was not a typical migrant
study, it compared different ethnic and thus genetic and lifestyle factors in a known risk
While significant parts of this book have been written anew, it have drawn
on material from a number of previously published articles. Sometimes only a
part of an article made it into the final manuscript; in other cases, its parts ended
up in different chapters of the book; in yet other case, a whole article became the
basis for one of the sections. In the following I list the articles which were used as
material for the book. Many of them were reprinted and translated into other
languages; here I list the first instance of publication in English. Also, it...
While the demand for research on investment performance has
increased, the cost of producing this research has declined. Early
studies relied on proprietary or expensive commercial databases for
their fund performance ﬁgures, or researchers collected data by hand
from published paper volumes. In 1997, the Center for Research in
Security Prices introduced the CRSP mutual fund database, com-
piled originally by Mark Carhart, into the academic research market.
Starting in about 1994, several databases on hedge fund returns and
characteristics became available to academic researchers.
Nevertheless for both leisure and business markets, perhaps the most important criterion for selecting
to visit or not to visit a destination is its image. Image is the set of expectations and perceptions a
prospective traveler has of a destination. Past experience of the destination or the companies involved
(i.e. airlines, hotels, tour operators); descriptions by friends and relatives; general information; and
marketing campaigns develop these expectations and perception which may be true or imaginary
representations. (Baloglu and Brinberg, 1997; Chon,1991 and 1992; Chacko, 1997).
The pig population has also halved over
the past fifteen years resulting from a combination of factors including the Euro-pound
exchange rate, changes to animal welfare regulations and disease problems (Henry, Baillie &
Rushton, 2011). The ‘Foot and Mouth’ (FMD) epidemic of 2001, in conjunction with changes
to EU subsidy payments, has also resulted in a reduced sheep population.
Chordae tendinae reconstruction, in patients with prolapsed of anterior leaflet was done
by Matsumoto et al., 1999 in children using the following technique: double-armed
mattress e-PTFE sutures were passed through the free prolapsed edge from the
ventricular side to the atrial side and then the two ends were passed through the papillary
muscle at 3 to 4 mm from its top, drawing the free edge down to the entry point on the
papillary muscle of the two ends of the suture. The sutures were passed through a
pledget, which would be on the side where the sutures emerged...
Community arts and cultural activities, through their intrinsic expressive
and exploratory processes and products, have the capacity to catalyze or
reinforce place-making through each component of the architecture of
community: through the coalescing of social and civic relationships around
creative activity; through the creation and reinforcement of quality public
assets that incubate or nurture art and culture; through market demand for
commercial and residential space used by artists and the creative sector in
general; and through networked enterprises of cultural instituti...
Foreign capital inflows are playing an important role in the U.S. economy by bridging the gap
between domestic supplies of and demand for capital. In 2008, as the financial crisis and global
economic downturn unfolded, foreign investors looked to U.S. Treasury securities as a “safe
haven” investment, while they sharply reduced their net purchases of corporate stocks and bonds.
In 2009, foreign capital inflows continued to drop as private investors sharply retrenched, while
official purchases of U.S. Treasury securities by foreign governments rose sharply.
The Council of Women World Leaders is a network of current and former
prime ministers, presidents and cabinet ministers whose mission is to mobilize
the highest–level women leaders globally for collective action on issues of
critical importance to women and equitable development. Through its networks,
summits, and partnerships, the Council promotes good governance and gen-
der equality, and enhances the experience of democracy globally by increasing
the number, effectiveness, and visibility of women who lead their countries. ...
Care should be taken in choosing preservatives. For example, Method 5035 notes
that, “Soil samples that contain carbonate minerals (either from natural sources or
applied as an amendment) may effervesce upon contact with the acidic preservative
solution in the low concentration sample vial.” Therefore, calcareous soils that
effervesce on contact with the preservative solution, which is intended for low-level
samples, should be preserved using an alternative technique.
