  • Sepsis is a complex syndrome characterized by systemic inflammation in response to infection. It is a significant health problem with an estimated 750,000 new cases in the USA annually [1]. It is also the third leading cause of death in developed countries, equalling the number of fatalities from acute myocardial infarction. The incidence of sepsis has increased in recent decades and is predicted to continue to rise. The high sepsis-related mortalities and the burden on healthcare systems means there is an urgent need to improve the diagnosis and management of sepsis patients....

  • The completion of risk assessments, appropriate in scope, can help decision-makers to select the most efficient and effective evidence based strategies. With limited government health budgets challenged by an aging population demographic such an understanding can improve resource allocation. Risk assessment must be sufficiently broad to ensure adequate understanding of the risk and to identify effective risk management options.

  • It has been considered that vitamin E is the major membrane bound antioxidant employed in humans, and thus this lipophilic chain breaking antioxidant has the ability to inhibit lipid peroxidation. Synergistic actions between vitamin C and vitamin E therefore appear important in their preventive activity against lipid peroxidation. Human trials and in-vitro studies have shown that oxidative stress causes a rapid depletion of vitamin C and vitamin E (reviewed by Bouayed & Bohn, 2010).

  • The presence of the lagged dependent variable Ci(-1) has a dual interpretation. On the one hand, it reflects relationship banking in the vein of the literature discussed in section 2.1. Long-term enterprise-bank relations help to reduce information asymmetries; banks would be more willing to lend again if they have already done so (we consider the banking sector as a whole as the lending party). On the other hand, a positive association can be interpreted as evidence of soft budget constraints on the part of the banks in the sense of Berglof and Roland (1998).

  • Leveraging refers to the process by which private sector capital is mobilised as a consequence of the use of public sector finance and financial instruments. Public finance can „crowd in‟ private capital by compensating private investors for what would otherwise be lower than their required risk-adjusted rates of return (AGF, 2010). There is no uniform methodology to calculate leverage ratios of public to private finance, and different financial institutions report this ratio in different ways.

  • There has been a case report of exaggerated pigmented granulomatous reaction to the artificial joint implant in a 72-year-old man who had undergone bilateral total hip arthroplasty, in whom, aspirate from the inguinal region was misinterpreted as metastatic melanoma from an unknown primary. Microscopically, the smears of this patient showed both intracellular and extracellular black pigment with obscured cytomorphology; although, appreciable cells were reported to be pleomorphic with prominent nucleoli. The patient had no evidence of primary cutaneous melanoma.

  • This report contains two analyses. The first is a review of historical AHS data to determine if there are trends in the housing consumption patterns of the elderly. The second analysis contains projections of housing demand by the elderly through 2030. This section is organized with a brief discussion of the methodology for the historical analysis, followed by the longer discussion of the methodology for the housing projections analysis. The primary data source for our research has been the AHS. We used the national samples from 1995 through 2003. To derive historical trends for...

  • Mortality rates among children and the absolute number of children dying annually in developing countries have declined considerably over the past few decades. However, the gains made have not been distributed evenly: childhood mortality remains higher among poorer people and the gap between rich and poor has grown. Several poor countries, and some poorer regions within countries, have experienced a levelling off of or even an increase in childhood mortality over the past few years.

  • Health care providers* tend to talk to patients about their disease rather than train them in the daily management* of their condition. Therapeutic patient education* is designed therefore to train patients in the skills* of self-managing or adapting treatment to their particular chronic disease*, and in coping* processes and skills*. It should also contribute to reducing the cost* of long-term care to patients and to society.

  • This paper examines the memory system behavior of database management systems on simultaneous multi- threaded processors. Simultaneous multithreading (SMT) [4] is an architectural technique in which the processor issues instructions from multiple threads in a single cycle. For scientific workloads, SMT has been shown to substantially increase processor utilization through fine- grained sharing of all processor resources (the fetch and issue logic, the caches, the TLBs, and the functional units) among the executing threads [23].

  • Thus, a search for new biomarkers which could be more specific for the detection of prostate cancer is needed. The use of biomarkers such as percent free PSA (Lee, 2006), intact serum PSA (Steuber, 2002), serum pro-PSA(Lein, 2005) and kallikrein (Stephan, 2000) have shown to be useful in the detection of prostate cancer. However, although a biomarker could improve the precision of screening it is possible that in clinical practice it is not viable, for the need of fresh samples or high costs (Villanueva, 2006). The use of PSA velocity has been suggested, an increase of more than 0.

  • The concept called “lean management” or “lean thinking” is most commonly associated with Japanese manufacturing, particularly the Toyota Production System (TPS). Much of the TPS way of thinking is based on the work of quality guru W. Edwards Deming, who taught, among other things, that managers should stop depending on mass inspection to achieve quality and, instead, focus on improving the production process and building quality into the product in the first place. So what is meant by “lean thinking”? Simply put, lean means using less to do more.

  • Finally, more efficiency-driven project selection could possibly deliver the greatest gains. An independent bank with a professional staff could rank project proposals by expected economic and social returns, and allot funds accordingly. They would not have to be constrained by outmoded formulas or arbitrary allocation processes, and could instead ensure that each dollar lent out achieves the greatest possible impact for the greatest number of people.

  • Diagnosis The diagnosis of clostridial disease, in association with positive cultures, must be based primarily on clinical findings. Because of the presence of clostridia in many wounds, their mere isolation from any site, including the blood, does not necessarily indicate severe disease. Smears of wound exudates, uterine scrapings, or cervical discharge may show abundant large gram-positive rods as well as other organisms. Cultures should be placed in selective media and incubated anaerobically for identification of clostridia.
