  • Thyroid cancers are now being diagnosed at an earlier stage and treatments together with follow-up strategies are more effective. However this is not consistent throughout the world. The practice does differ considerably from country to country and region to region. Many International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Members States can benefit from the lessons learned and improve overall patient management of thyroid cancers. The IAEA has significantly enhanced the capabilities of many Member States in the field of nuclear medicine.

  • 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.

  • It is widely accepted that a modal shift towards railways can contribute to meeting EU targets on climate protection and reducing greenhouse gas emissions. A stronger role for rail will help to achieve real progress towards the 2020 target of a 20% cut in the EU’s greenhouse gas emissions. However, concerted action must be taken by governments and policy-makers to help bring this about. The rail sector is doing its part, having already agreed on a voluntary target for 2020, to cut its 1990 levels of specifi c emissions by 30%.

  • The top layer of skin is the epidermis. The epidermis is thin, averaging only 0.2 millimeters thick (about 1/100 of an inch). It protects the deeper layers of skin and the organs of the body from the environment. Keratinocytes are the main cell type of the epidermis. These cells make an important protein called keratin that helps the skin protect the rest of the body. The outermost part of the epidermis is called the stratum corneum. It is composed of dead keratinocytes that are continually shed as new ones form. The cells in this layer are called squamous cells...

  • Don’t be surprised if your efforts to make contact and establish relationships are met with initial skepticism, distrust or even hostility. Many cultural communities have long histories of discrimination and exploitation by well-meaning outsiders. Many community members have personally experienced discriminatory treatment. Too often, research or even service organizations plan things to do to a community, rather than to do with them. The time you spend developing relationships and gathering information will be invaluable when it comes to your final step.

  • Establishing screening programmes without effective follow-up to treat those with precancerous lesions will result in little or no impact on overall cervical cancer mortality rates. Therefore, regardless of which strategy is selected for screening programmes, special attention must be given to strengthening referral systems and having well defined links to higher levels of health care delivery for tracking women with positive screening results.

  • In the last part of the 20th century scientists discovered drugs that made the brain more resistant to ischemia, to such an extent that cerebral tissue treated with them was only little damaged, or was not damaged at all, by an ischemic insult that badly damaged control, untreated tissue. It was the beginning of a very exciting era in neuroscience research, a period when academic and industrial scientists all pursued the research of a “neuroprotectant” that could defend the ischemic brain from irreversible damage.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • A clustering of the disease among close relatives has also been shown, although there is no consensus on which inheritable genetic defects are involved. In spite of extensive research, reliable findings on risk factors relating to lifestyle, diet or the environment remain elusive. Possible lifestyle risk factors are high intakes of α-linolenic acid (a polyunsaturated fatty acid in vegetables and dairy products) and calcium.

  • 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.

  • During the course of the update, the authors also reviewed the policy descriptions and criteria used to rate each state’s laws. Modifications were deemed appropriate in several instances because of either changes in the courts’ interpretation of constitutional law as it impacts alcohol advertising regulation, or the need to improve accuracy, clarity, and comparability across states. These revisions are described in Appendix A. Because of these revisions, findings in the...

  • If from the 1920s to the 1940s, it was individual films, taken more or less out of context, which typified the German cinema, at least for an international public, the inverse was the case some thirty years later: at first the Young German Film, then the New German Cinema made headlines as national film movements, where a generational or film-political identity imposed themselves more strikingly than individual film titles.

  • This environment could change if the downward shift of yield curve continues. Anecdotal evidence suggests that institutional investors are becoming more sensitive to changes in financial market conditions and therefore are increasingly interested in higher-return generating assets and more sophisticated styles in fund management. Indeed, the fall in the short term interest rate since last August appears to have been gradually affecting investors’ behavior. Clients’ requests for daily liquidity have decreased at the margin. ...
