  • The use of non-biomedical therapeutics and the management of cancer are high profile issues in health internationally. They both generate, in their own right, considerable debate amongst academics, practitioners and the wider public. Increasingly, as non-biomedical approaches have become more and more a feature of the range of therapeutic options available to cancer patients, the two have become inextricably linked. This book is concerned with that increasingly evident combination.

  • 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.

  • Herbs and traditional medicines are being extensively used for healthcare in almost all the countries since times immemorial. Ancient religious texts are replete with references on the use of natural products with medicinal properties. Because of local beliefs and practices and also from cost considerations herbal medicines remain a popular mode of treatment in the developing countries. Even in the industrialised society the rising cost of prescription drugs and ensuing side effects of the treatment make it highly attractive to use the traditional medicine particularly for minor ailments....

  • In defining a new paradigm it is difficult to know where to begin. How do you take fifteen years of medical practice in pathology and ten years of clinical observation utilizing the theories of traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture, homeopathy, and therapeutic nutrition and meld them into a model of biological understanding and medical practice? The answer is actually quite simple — start from the beginning and build a convincing model based upon sound physics, physiology, pathology, and clinical medicine and see if the model fits the expected outcome.

  • Financial development is important for fostering economic growth and stability. This is a feature of the development process that has been extensively documented in the literatures (see Levine). 1 One of key components in this process is capital market development. For example, deepening the long-term local bond market facilitates the reduction of currency and maturity mismatches on corporations’ balance sheets. This also creates alternatives to bank financing that can support efficiency and stability.

  • Another important change can be traced to the 1960s and 1970s, when some producers and dealers began testing the possibility of selling rough diamonds through alternative channels instead of the traditional practice of selling through the unified sales channel of De Beers’ CSO (see.Figure.8). In the 1990s major producers began breaking away from the CSO (later transformed into the Diamond Trading Company, or DTC) to start selling their diamonds independently on the global market.

  • The governor’s office has expressed the view that, since Planned Parenthood affiliates constitute just 2% of WHP providers, patients would have little difficulty finding alternative providers. Our analysis indicates that in the markets they serve, Planned Parenthood affiliates serve half, and sometimes much more than half, of all WHP patients.

  • The last decade or so has seen remarkable advances in our knowledge of cough. This applies especially to its basic mechanisms: the types of airway sensors, the pharmacological receptors on their membranes, the brainstem organization of the ‘cough centre’, and the involvement of the cerebral cortex in the sensations and the voluntary control of cough. With the exception of the last of these, nearly all the studies have been on experimental animals rather than humans, for obvious reasons.

  • The major pathogenic mechanism of poststreptococcal glomerulonephritis (PSGN) is an in situ immune complex formation due to deposition of streptococcal nephritogenic antigens, such as nephritis-associated plasmin receptor (NAPlr) and Streptococcal pyrogenic exotoxin B (SPE B). Both are capable of activating the alternate pathway of the complement cascade and enhance the expression of adhesion molecules. SPE B also stimulates the production of chemotactic cytokines. NAPlr was isolated from group A streptococcus and was shown to bind plasmin(ogen).

  • This book, with its 16 chapters, documents the present state of knowledge of the adenosine A3 receptor. It covers a wide range of information, including data from studies of theoretical, molecular and cellular pharmacology, signal transduction, integrative physiology, new drug discoveries and clinical applications. It fills an important gap in the literature since no alternative source of such information is currently available.

  • The last solution is the one of choice, if you have the machines. But many people don't and that is why one alternative is to find a shop that will help you out. If you can find such a shop it may turn out to be very easy for you to show up now and then with a few boards and quickly have them planed down, so it's worth the effort to investigate by calling around. But keep the following in mind. These shops will be busy and it is not worth their while to disturb their normal flow of...

  • 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.

  • Despite its limitations, unfractionated heparin has been the standard anticoagulant used during percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). Several small studies have suggested that intravenous enoxaparin may be a safe and effective alternative. Our primary aim was to assess the safety of enoxaparin as compared with that of unfractionated heparin in elective PCI. Methods In this prospective, open-label, multicenter, randomized trial, we randomly assigned 3528 patients with PCI to receive enoxaparin (0.5 or 0.

  • Proteinkinases are targets for therapeutic agents designed to intervene in signaling processes in the diseased state. Most kinase inhibitors are directed towards the conserved ATP binding site. Because the essential features of this site are conserved in all eukaryotic protein kinases, it is generally assumed that the same compound will bind in a similar manner to different protein kinases.

  • The longer migrants live and adapt to their destination country, the more their cancer rates converge towards those in that country. This has been shown for stomach, colon and prostate cancer (McKay, 2003). Migrants from non-western countries to Europe were found to be more prone to cancers that are related to infections experienced in early life, such as liver, cervical and stomach cancer. In contrast, migrants of non-western origin were less likely to suffer from cancers related to a western lifestyle, e.g. colorectal and breast cancer (Arnold et al., 2010)....
