Religion, Law, and the Medical Neglect of Children in the United States, 1870–2000: ‘The Science of the Age’

 Miscellaneous  Comments Off on Religion, Law, and the Medical Neglect of Children in the United States, 1870–2000: ‘The Science of the Age’
Sep 012019
 

Drawing upon a diverse range of archival evidence, medical treatises, religious texts, public discourses, and legal documents, this book examines the rich historical context in which controversies surrounding the medical neglect of children erupted onto the American scene.
It argues that several nineteenth-century developments collided to produce the first criminal prosecutions of parents who rejected medical attendance as a tenet of their religious faith. A view of children as distinct biological beings with particularized needs for physical care had engendered both the new medical practice field of pediatrics and a vigorous child welfare movement that forced legislatures and courts to reconsider public and private responsibility for ensuring children’s physical well-being. At the same time, a number of healing religions had emerged to challenge the growing authority of medical doctors and the appropriate role of the state in the realm of child welfare. The rapid proliferation of the new healing churches, and the mixed outcomes of parents’ criminal trials, reflected ongoing uneasiness about the increasing presence of science in American life.

Electrical dynamics of the dendritic space

 Miscellaneous  Comments Off on Electrical dynamics of the dendritic space
Aug 302019
 

The authors explain how the whole dendritic arborization contributes to the generation of various output discharges and elucidate the mechanisms of the transfer function of all dendritic sites. Their alternative modelling approach to conventional models introduces the notion of a functional dendritic space, and they have concentrated on a detailed spatial description of the electrical states at all dendritic sites when the dendrites operate. By analyzing the electrical dendritic space in which all the signals are processed, the authors provide tools to explore the spatial dimension of the transient events well known by electrophysiologists. They demonstrate the mechanisms by which the operating dendrites decide how, in fine, the distributed synaptic inputs generate final various output discharges. Their approach reveals the mechanisms by which individual dendritic geometry determines the sequence of action potentials that is the neuronal code. An accompanying NeuronViewer allows readers to monitor the simulation of operating dendritic arborization.

Intrahepatic Cholangiocarcinoma: Diagnosis and Management

 Miscellaneous  Comments Off on Intrahepatic Cholangiocarcinoma: Diagnosis and Management
Aug 302019
 

This book provides a comprehensive review of the epidemiology, molecular pathogenesis, diagnosis and treatment of intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma (ICC). It brings together an impressive group of international experts in cholangiocarcinoma research and clinical care. The book was organized and written to aid the clinician’s understanding of emerging research in cholangiocarcinoma and its application to the clinical care of patients with ICC. Each chapter details the scientific evidence to support clinical decisions that are needed to care for these complex patients. Focused chapters detail the epidemiology, diagnostic evaluation, as well as staging and prognosis of this disease. In addition to dedicated chapters on surgical management of ICC, a broad emphasis on locoregional therapies, including percutaneous ablation and transarterial therapies, is included. An up-to-date overview of the molecular pathogenesis and pathological assessment of ICC is detailed prior to chapters focusing on systemic chemotherapy and emerging novel therapy options.

Intrahepatic Cholangiocarcinoma is not only an invaluable resource for many as they seek to provide the best multidisciplinary cancer care to patients with ICC, but also an opportunity to identify new avenues of scientific discovery that lead to significant advances in the diagnosis and management of ICC.

The human foot. A companion to clinical studies

 Miscellaneous  Comments Off on The human foot. A companion to clinical studies
Aug 302019
 

This book, a collaboration between an orthopedic surgeon and a paleoanthropologist, starts by tracing the evolutionary history of feet all the way from their beginnings as fins to modern human feet. It presents the foot, a neglected but important region, taking into account advances in the study of evolution, imaging, physiology and biomechanics. The development of gait in children is described and measurements of foot pressures and their value are discussed. Also analyzed are various examples of the foot in action such as running, ballet dancing, tightrope walking, kicking, firewalking, swimming and the foot in microgravity, ending with a chapter on the loss of parts and the whole of the foot, the consequences and prosthetic replacement. The text will be of interest to orthopedic surgeons, physiotherapists, sports scientists, and podiatrists. It will also appeal to anyone interested in their feet. Read this book and you will gain new insight and respect for your feet.

Polymyxin Antibiotics: From Laboratory Bench to Bedside

 Miscellaneous  Comments Off on Polymyxin Antibiotics: From Laboratory Bench to Bedside
Aug 302019
 


This volume is the first-ever complete treatise on polymyxins and presents the most comprehensive and up-to-date reviews of all major research and clinical topics from chemistry, microbiology, pharmacology, clinical use, to drug discovery. All chapters were written by internationally leading researchers and clinicians in the field.
It is our wish that readers discover the importance of polymyxin structure in relation to the mechanisms of activity, resistance and toxicity. We emphasized that reliable analytic methods for polymyxins are critical when investigating their pharmacokinetics (PK) and pharmacodynamics (PD). The complicated dose definitions and different pharmacopoeial standards have already compromised the safe use of polymyxins in patients. Therefore, informed by the latest pharmacological information, scientifically-based dosing recommendations have been proposed for intravenous polymyxins. Considering the PK/PD limitations and potential development of resistance, polymyxin combinations are encouraged; however, the current literature has not shown definite microbiological benefits, possibly because most clinical studies to date overlooked key PK/PD principles. Nephrotoxicity is the major dose-limiting factor and it is imperative to elucidate the mechanisms and develop novel approaches to minimize polymyxin-associated toxicities. In addition, the anti-endotoxin effect of polymyxins supports their clinical use to treat Gram-negative sepsis. Fortunately, the discovery of new-generation polymyxins with wider therapeutic windows has benefited from the latest achievements in polymyxin research.

This book provides extensive pharmacological information on polymyxins to infectious diseases clinicians, pharmacists, clinical microbiologists, antimicrobial pharmacologists, and pharmaceutical scientists, and is an essential read for those who aim to develop novel polymyxins and improve their clinical use as a last-line defense against Gram-negative ‘superbugs’.
