After the first edition published in 2007 that became a best seller, the continuous scientific
developments in the field have prompted us to produce the second edition of this book. As it
happens in life and science, some of the novel and promising data presented in the first edition
have been confirmed, some not, and new breakthrough achievements have been accomplished.
Stem Cells in Reproductive Medicine, Basic Science and Therapeutic Potential, second edition,
updates the revolutionary advances in stem cell science that may potentially impact on human

There is no doubt that the introduction and evolution
of regenerative and implant therapies affords
clinicians the opportunity to provide patients with
previously undreamt-of treatment outcomes. However,
such therapeutic approaches must not be visualized
as an end to themselves.
The goals of conscientious and comprehensive
therapy remain the maximization of patient
comfort, function, and esthetics in both the short
and long terms.
The increasing number of chromosomal rearrangements involving the
humanMLLgene, in combination with differences in clinical behavior and
outcome for MLL-rearranged leukemia patients, makes it necessary to
reflect on the cancer mechanism and to discuss potential therapeutic strate-gies. To date, 64 different translocations have been identified at the
Cystine-knot miniproteins are members of a large family of small proteins
that are defined by a common structural scaffold which is stabilized by
three intramolecular disulfide bonds. Cystine-knot miniproteins display a
broad spectrum of therapeutically useful natural biological activities and
several family members are marketed as therapeutics or are in clinical
Over 98 per cent of sprayed
insecticides and 95 per cent of herbicides reach a destination other than their target
species, including non-target species, air, water and soil. Pesticide drift occurs when
pesticides suspended in the air as particles are carried by wind to other areas,
potentially contaminating them. Pesticides are one of the causes of water pollution and
some pesticides are persistent organic pollutants and contribute to soil contamination.
Detection of pesticide molecules in the food items from plant and animal origin
become imperative for safe consumption of food.
Remarkable advances in medical diagnostic imaging have been made during the past
few decades. The development of new imaging techniques and continuous
improvements in the display of digital images have opened new horizons in the study
of brain anatomy and pathology. The field of brain imaging has now become a fast-
moving, demanding, and exciting multidisciplinary activity. I hope that this textbook
will be useful to students and clinicians in the field of neuroscience, in understanding
the fundamentals of advances in brain imaging.
However, from an energetic point of view, it has been
debated that phenolics favour hydrogen atom transfer mechanisms, in which lower energies
are involved (Leopoldini et al., 2011). The radicals derived from oxygen represent the most
important class of radical species generated in living systems. However the term antioxidant
is often used to describe the scavenging activity of all reactive radicals including e.g. RNS
Veterinary medicine is advancing at a very rapid pace, particularly given the breadth
of the discipline. This book examines new developments covering a wide range of
issues from health and welfare in livestock, pets, and wild animals to public health
supervision and biomedical research.
As well as containing reviews offering fresh insight into specific issues, this book
includes a selection of scientific articles which help to chart the advance of this science.
The book is divided into several sections.
This working paper focuses on the relevance of social, socioeconomic and behavioural
factors on health status and mortality in a longitudinal setting and in a life-course perspective.
First, we identify those factors which determine the health status of people aged 60+ in
Germany. Based on this, our second aim is to find factors which determine transitions from
good general health status, or from the absence of specific diseases, to a bad general health
status or the presence of specific diseases.
However, I think that such a dismissal is plain wrong. It is unconceivable that
hundreds of scientists throughout the world have for 30 years all carried out flawed or
even fraudulent research demonstrating that several compounds improve the
resistance of the brain to ischemic damage. Granted, that may have happened
sometimes, but hundreds of laboratories around the world cannot have been run
during 30 years by incompetent or criminal scientists.
Including urinary issues in the gynecologic evaluation is helpful. Urinary
tract infections (UTIs) are one of the most common reasons to seek medical
care and are sometimes triggered by sexual activity. Urinary incontinence is
an increasingly recognized health problem (see Chapter 10).
Finally, because domestic violence is common (2), screening for current or
previous physical, emotional, or sexual abuse is an important part of the pa-
tient’s history and in some states is mandatory.
In a variation to this base case, costs are also calculated where the health effects of
PM10 are estimated without a threshold. This variation provides a sensitivity analysis that
shows how specifying a threshold affects total cost estimates.
As acknowledged by Kunzli et al. (1999), the approach of using one pollutant as an
indicator of the air pollution mix and only estimating the impact of PM10 above a baseline
will probably underestimate the impact of air pollution.
Displacing older people as heads of households
and depriving them of their autonomy in the name
of affection are cultural norms even in countries
where the family is the central institution and the
sense of filial obligation is strong (11). Such
infantilization and overprotection can leave the
older person isolated, depressed and demoralized,
and can be considered a form of abuse. In some
traditional societies, older widows are abandoned
and their property seized.
Alternative medicine is recognized as medical products and practices that do not belong to
the standard cares taken by medical doctors, doctors of osteopathy and allied health professionals.
Alternative medicine includes the mind-body interventions (i.e., meditation, yoga,
acupuncture, deep-breathing exercises, guided imageryAny of various techniques (such as a
series of verbal suggestions) used to guide another person or oneself in imagining sensations—
especially in visualizing an image in the mind—to bring about a desired physical response
(such as stress reduction).
