  • Tuberculosis, human immunodeficiency virus/acquired immunodeficiency syndrome and malaria are the three most profound cause of death worldwide. In developing country tuberculosis is a serious problem.

  • For cell-based bone tissue engineering, various tissues derived cells are utilized since osteogenic cells can be harvested from bone marrow, periosteum, and adipose tissue, though recent studies indicate that bone marrow stromal cells (BMSCs, bone marrow derived multipotent mesenchymal stromal cells, or mesenchymal stem cells) are the most reliable cell source because of their superior osteogenic ability (Hayashi et al., 2008). However, it is difficult to obtain adequate numbers of transplantable BMSCs from bone marrow aspirates, as they are rare in the bone marrow (less than 0.

  • 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.

In the United States alone, roughly 12,000 women are diagnosed with uterine cervical cancer annually, and 4,000 will die from the disease [1].

  • In some cases the style of a fund is captured using the returns of other managed portfolios in the same market sector. The OE port- folio is then a combination of a manager’s peers’ portfolios. With this approach the measured performance is a zero-sum game, as the average performance measured in the peer group must be zero. This approach can make it easy to control for costs and risks, to the extent that the portfolio and its peers are similar in these dimensions. In such cases, the performance differential can be a relatively clean measure of value added.
