  • Second, it should not be forgot that several neuroprotectant have failed not because they lacked efficacy, but because they revealed unexpected side effects. Many NMDAreceptor antagonists were discarded because in clinical trials they showed psychedelic unwanted effects. Tirilazad, an antioxidant belonging to the “lazaroid” class of antioxidants, unexpectedly worsened outcome of ischemic stroke, a fact very likely explained by some unexpected toxic action(s) that offset its neuroprotective ability.

  • Another major role of marketing relates to change in ownership. Agricultural goods, like most other goods, have value only in terms of their usefulness -- utility -- to consumers. The pricing and exchange functions associated with possession are the heart of marketing. Pricing is the determination of market values in terms of money. Buyers and sellers at a given time agree on a common evaluation. Prices may vary from day to day or hour to hour, depending on demand and supply. But, in time, prices of different commodities seek different levels in accordance with...

  • NO2 is a product of combustion. It is a precursor to ground-level ozone formation through photochemical reactions involving VOCs. NO2 causes a brown colour in the atmosphere at elevated concentrations. It reacts in the atmosphere with ammonia to form fine particulates, which reduce visibility and increase PM2.5 concentrations (Levelton Engineering Limited, 2000). NO2 irritates the mucous membranes in the respiratory tract.

  • Muirhead (1987) reviews the large literature on shrinkage estimators of the covariance matrix in finite-sample statistical decision theory. All these estimators suffer from at least two severe drawbacks, either of which is enough to make them ill-suited to stock returns: (i) they break down when N T; (ii) they do not exploit the a priori knowledge that stock returns tend to be positively correlated to one another.

  • Managed care prevalence in the market can also impact the climate in which the elderly seek care.

  • But risk factors don’t tell us everything. Having a risk factor, or even several risk factors, does not mean that you will get the disease. And some people who get the disease may have few or no known risk factors. Even if a person with basal or squamous cell skin cancer has a risk factor, it is often very hard to know how much that risk factor may have contributed to the cancer. The following are known risk factors for basal cell and squamous cell carcinomas. (These factors don't necessarily apply to other forms of non-melanoma skin cancer, such as...

  • Second, economic adjustment within the euro area is continuing. This is most visible in the reduction of large current-account deficits driven by partly permanent declines in domestic absorption and gains in competitiveness, but is also apparent in gradually rising wages and domestic demand in surplus countries. Internal and external adjustment has farther to go, and it will have to be sustained over time to see an impact on stocks of domestic and external liabilities.

  • Because there is significant variation and overlap in the appearance of dif- ferent etiologies of vaginitis, objective testing should always be undertaken. Any symptomatic, colored, or foul-smelling discharge should be sampled from the lateral vaginal wall for microscopic examination. Such specimens usually are obtained before other testing to decrease the presence of red blood cells. Secretions are mixed with a small amount of normal saline either in a test tube or on a slide with a protective cover slip to prevent air-drying.

  • The effectiveness of screening in the NHSBSP is influenced by pro- gramme factors, such as the introduction of two views and the opti- misation of optical density, and also by population factors, such as the increasing use of hormone replacement therapy during the 1990s. The current NHSBSP saves an estimated 1400 lives each year in Eng- land. The NHSBSP now diagnoses about half of all breast cancers found in women in the target age range of 50–70 years, with the remainder occurring in women who do not attend for screening or who present symptomatically in the interval between screens.

  • National financial literacy surveys are clearly important tools, but the potential gain from a survey undertaken across a number of countries is much greater. Such an international study provides the opportunity to compare levels of financial literacy and progress across populations and financial markets, and is of huge interest to policy makers and other stakeholders seeking to understand why one country appears to be achieving more than another and which interventions are most effective.

  • Our analysis also contributes to assessing market e¢ ciency in a way that it investigates how the markets price in information about banks and how this process may di§er across di§erent types of banks. To that end, we apply a large panel of 53 EU banks using a stationary vector autoregressive (VAR) sys- tem that allows us to focus on such Örm-level e§ects. A further contribution to the literature is provided by the fact that we also want to analyse whether large banksístock prices could be a§ected by di§erent factors than small banksí stock prices.

  • Two tests are available to screen for prostate cancer: prostate-specific antigen (PSA) and digital rectal examination (DRE). The first of these is a blood test, and the second is a physical examination by a doctor where a finger is passed into the rectum to directly feel for enlargement or a nodule in the prostate gland. The subsequent diagnostic test is a prostatic biopsy taken through the rectum. This paper will discuss the use of PSA as part of a screening program. In clinical practice DRE is used to supplement rather than replace PSA. Wilson and Jungner described a...

  • Consistent with real-life credit-card and subprime mortgage contracts but (we argue) inconsistent with natural specifications of rational time-consistent theories, in the competitive equilibrium of our model firms offer seemingly cheap credit to be repaid quickly, but introduce large penalties for falling behind this front-loaded repayment schedule. The contracts are designed so that borrowers who underestimate their taste for immediate gratification both pay the penalties and repay in an ex ante suboptimal back-loaded manner more often than they predict or prefer.
