  • Pulmonary embolism is a serious, potentially life-threatening cardiopulmonary disease that occurs due to partial or total obstruction of the pulmonary arterial bed. Pulmonary embolism constitutes 5-25% of in-hospital deaths, and mortality is decreased from 30% to 8% with early treatment. Therefore, risk factors should be identified and treatment should be planned to decrease the risk of mortality. Clinical findings, routine laboratory data, electrocardiogram, chest X-ray, and arterial blood gases are not sufficient to diagnose or rule out pulmonary embolus.

  • Molecular cloning has identified eight metabotropic glutamate receptor (mGluR) subtypes, each with distinct patterns of expression. However, the characteristic roles of these different mGluRs in physiological processes are not well understood. Identification of subtype-specific compounds may potentially act as therapeutic agents for the treatment of a wide range of conditions (including progressive brain disease, epilepsy and cerebral ischemia) all of which are associated with abnormal mGLuR activation.

  • Information about the localization of cancer from biopsy specimens is very helpful to plan the manner of resection. Although an experienced resectionist can remove almost all prostate tissues transurethrally, aggressive resection can be applied where the cancer was detected by biopsy to achieve the radicality of the operation. Erectile function was preserved in about 60% of the patients in the present study. Preservation of the cavernous nerve can be achieved by leaving some prostate tissue not to be resected around the 4 or 8 o’clock position not to injure the nerve.

  • Exercise tests are thought to mimic the postoperative increase in oxygen consumption and have been used to select patients at high risk of cardiopulmonary complications after thoracic, but also abdominal surgery. The aim of exercise tests is to stress the whole cardiopulmonary system and estimate the physiological reserve that may be available after lung resection. The most used and best validated exercise parameter is V’O2, max.

  • Some larger businesses and industrial establishments have medical practitioners, advisors or physicians on site or on payroll. Smaller businesses may not currently staff medical advisors. In preparing your business continuity plan, it is advisable that you ensure access to a medical practitioner or advisor for assistance and advice in the event of a pandemic. If your company already has medical staff on site, they should be made aware of the nature of the disease, how it is transmitted, its symptoms and health care precautions available and appropriate.

  • Insects are associated with a broad diversity of microorganisms in a variety of symbiotic relationships including: commensalism, mutualism, and parasitism. Internal mutualistic organisms are critical to the survival of the host, such as symbionts, which are found in mycetocytes and mycetomes of many invertebrate species. Although mutualistic organisms such as the protists associated with termites may be abundant in their insect hosts, they are not by definition pathogenic to the host insect.

  • As other populations of older adults (e.g. individuals with Parkinson disease or other ailments or people in assisted living arrangements) may be more difficult to study,we chose a population of healthy high-functioning individuals for our first attempt to study decision making in the elderly. Each subject completed an individually administered interview, involving a written questionnaire and several interactive tasks. On average, subjects of both populations took 50 min to complete the interview. For all areas of the investigation involving monetary rewards, real cash was used.

  • Non-thrombotic pulmonary emboli are also covered and an attempt is made to constitute an awareness of this picture that can change the treatment and prognosis of the disease to a considerable extent. In addition to the pathophysiological definition of pulmonary embolus, the priority goal of quick and definitive diagnosis is emphasized, and diagnostic strategies are discussed in the book. A numerical analysis of the vena cava filters, which is a current approach to prevent pulmonary emboli recurrences, is presented in the last chapter....

  • The second part of the book is dedicated to the pathogenesis of myocarditis. The chapters in this part also discuss some clinical findings, but mostly focus on the underlying mechanism of the disease, using in-depth data from mouse models. Some of the chapters focus on host immune response. For example, one chapter reviews the role of pattern-recognition receptors in myocarditis, and another chapter examines the role of lymphocyte effectors in myocarditis pathogenesis.

  • research focus globally. Imaging of potential therapeutic or diagnostic agents in animal models in the early stage of research is an important step towards pre-clinical and clinical trials in humans. The resent achievements in molecular biology, virology and nanotechnology provide a totally new approaches to deliver therapeutic agents to the patient starting from conventional small molecules to virus based gene therapy. This creates a need for better tools for the pharmaceutical research.

  • Myocarditis is among the most common causes of non-congenital, non-ischemic sudden death in otherwise normal, healthy young adults. Myocarditis is heterogeneous disease, most patients recover spontaneously, but some forms of myocarditis are very serious and could be fatal. Additionally, some myocarditis patients develop dilated cardiomyopathy. This book provides a compendium of studies from leading international experts on various aspects of myocarditis. It consists of 20 chapters in three sections....

  • Thus it is a publication oriented toward policymakers, nutrition educators, nutritionists, and healthcare providers rather than to the general public, as with previous versions of the Dietary Guidelines, and contains more technical information. The intent of the Dietary Guidelines is to summarize and synthesize knowledge regarding individual nutrients and food components into recommendations for a pattern of eating that can be adopted by the public. In this publi­ cation, Key Recommendations are grouped under nine inter-related focus areas.

  • Starting in the 1980s, Nobel economist Milton Friedman played an important role, along with many other economists and public pol- icy experts, in the development of an index of economic freedom that would allow researchers to be able to measure the degree to which a country had a free market economy. Those efforts culminated in the Fraser Institute’s publication in 1996 of the first edition of Economic Freedom of the World. There have been 14 more editions published since then in what is now an annual series.

  • Different terms are employed in the literature to specify this method on investigations: dualbeam coherent interferometry or laser Doppler interferometry, optical coherence tomography (OCT) or optical coherence reflectometry. OCT is analogous to ultrasonic imaging, which measures the intensity of reflected infrared light rather than reflected sound waves from the sample. Time gating is employed so that the time for the light to be reflected back (or echo delay time) is used to assess the intensity of back-reflection as a function of depth.

  • When a drug is manufactured, it keeps its potency, or strength, for only a certain time. That time is different for each drug. After that time, the drug’s chemical composition starts to change and the drug weakens or deteriorates. It can no longer have the intended health effect. The change is slow, but certain. The drug’s expiration date is the time when its chemical composition will be too weak to help. Most of the chemical changes in a drug are not dangerous in themselves. But some are. That’s another reason why using a drug before its expiration date is crucial. These...

  • In an era of spectacular medical advances, it is easy to become immune to the announcement of new “breakthroughs”. This in no way lessens the remarkable achievements of diagnostic imaging over the last few years in which the field of Nuclear Medicine has shared. To the outsider the specialty of Nuclear Medicine can appear confusing and esoteric since it operates in a world of invisible radioactive emissions, nuclear decay charts and obscure elements.
