  • Take molecular genetics and bioinformatics for example; these are perhaps two of the most exciting areas of biology and are beginning to have an impact on other areas of medical therapeutics such as cancer and diabetes, and provide a signpost to ‘personalised medicine’. Yet recent genome wide association (GWAS) studies of large samples, have demonstrated that in schizophrenia around 1000 or more genetic variants of low penetrance may be implicated in the heritability of schizophrenia.

  • In recent years, all western industrialized countries, and to a growing extent even many developed and developing Asian nations, have witnessed a remarkable growth in numbers of older people [1]. Future projections anticipate continued increases, particularly in numbers of individuals who are 85 years and older [1]. Although US statistics have indicated recent declines in disability trends [2], overall numbers of older individuals living with disability and functional dependence are likely to increase given projected increases in life expectancy [3].

  • The fact that the gut microfl ora can be altered for the benefi t of human health has motivated the development of new functional food ingredients. A probiotic is a live microbial food supplement, which benefi cially affects the host by improving its intestinal microbial bal- ance (Fuller 1989). A prebiotic is defi ned as a nondigestible food ingredient that benefi cially affects the host by selectively stimulating the growth and/or activity of one or a limited number of bacteria in the colon, and thus improves host health (Gibson and Roberfroid 1995)....

  • But this is just one measure of the failure of efforts to prevent vertical transmission. Following the global commitment at UNGASS in 2001, UN agencies designed a comprehensive program to prevent vertical transmission. This program was based on promoting a woman’s right to a continuum of care starting with sexual and reproductive health and treatment through to psychosocial and nutritional support. The four-prong strategy is stirring in focus and words, but actual progress and achievements have been far more limited.

  • This report, published by the UN Millennium Project, examines the global burden of diseases and risks related to sexual and reproductive health (SRH), analyses the implications for the Millennium Development Goals, and asks what needs to be done. Key findings include that millions of women lack access to family planning services they need and want. The unmet need for contraception is especially acute among adolescents in the developing world. One in 16 women in sub-Saharan Africa dies from complications of pregnancy and childbirth, compared with one in every 2800 in...

  • Although they were for a while “dissociated” (Spiegel, 2006) from the clinical and scientific arena, dissociative disorders have in the last several years received a renewed interest among several groups of researchers, who embarked on the work of identifying and describing their underlying neural correlates. Dissociative disorders are characterized by transient or chronic failures or disruptions of integration of otherwise integrated functions of consciousness, memory, perception, identity or emotion.

  • Female infertility is most often caused by problems with ovulation (40%) or fallopian tubes (40%). Other possible causes include endometriosis, in which the uterine lining grows outside the uterus, premature ovarian failure, in which a woman’s ovaries stop functioning before she reaches the age of forty, and uterine fibroids. Women who were exposed in the womb to diethylstilbestrol (DES), a synthetic estrogen prescribed to women from 1938-1971, have had an increased risk of infertility. Sexually transmitted infections (STIs) also play a major role in infertility.

  • The first function, sperm cell formation, occurs in the two testes. The formation of sperm requires a temperature that is a few degrees cooler than the temperature of the rest of the body. How is this temperature reduction produced? The testes are suspended within a sac called the scrotum. Because it is not located within the body cavity, the temperature of the scrotum is a few degrees lower than normal body temperature. The scrotum is an adaptation that has evolved to increase the chances of pro- ducing healthy sperm. Inside the testes are a great many tiny tubes, or tubules.

  • The need for case management is particularly high among elderly patients suffering from isolation, depression, frailty, or chronic or disabling conditions. Patients may lack the social supports or capacity to reach out for help, and family members or other caregivers may lack the resources they need to provide appropriate or adequate care. Given these challenges, the fragmentation of social services in conjunction with medical care can function as an overwhelming barrier to access necessary care to support the “whole patient”.

  • In addition to evidence that gender affects growth, evidence from the 2000/2001 World Development Report: Attacking Poverty shows that gender relations affect all aspects of poverty, including income, opportunity, security, and empowerment. 19 With regard to income poverty, in some countries, girls in poor families receive lower quality nutrition, less health care, and poorer education than their brothers. 20 Likewise, as noted above, female household mem- bers often have less access to and control over the household’s pro- ductive resources and income than do male family members.

  • Many factors affect the ability of the RCC-7K to receive commands from its Remote Control Transmitter. A weak battery in the Transmitter will result in a weaker transmitted signal; if the battery is very weak then the Transmitter may not function at all. The Transmitter’s ability to convert electrical energy to radio energy is best when its antenna is fully extended and degrades as the antenna length is reduced; the same thing also applies to the car antenna’s ability to convert the radio signal back into electrical energy for the receiver.

  • Within developing countries, health sector reform, often including decen- tralized priority setting, increases the information and advocacy burden for inclusion of SRH concerns. Central functions (like operating logistic systems and service quality control) require high-level commitment and a supportive policy and regulatory framework. The international discussion on SRH emphasizes an outcome-oriented public health approach but people react to multiple dimensions. Strong pas- sions and intensive debates continue on a range of issues: abortion, adolescent SRH and even family planning.

  • Testosterone also affects various other tissues in the male. Testosterone causes pubic and underarm hair growth, causes changes in body propor- tions, increases muscle tissue, and deepens the voice. Testosterone may influence the development of acne and the beginning of body odors from bacteria attracted to sweat glands. Because none of these characteristics are directly related to sexual reproduction, they are called secondary sex characteristics. In males, the level of testosterone in the body remains much the same for about 40 years after puberty.
