Fomalhaut b. It's the first visible light image of an extrasolar planet. Though it's just a speck in this image, it's an incredible milestone. Fomalhaut itself is one of the brightest stars in the sky, located about twenty-five light years from earth in the constellation Piscis Austrinus. I'm not sure the toroidal dust disk surrounding Fomalhaut, imaged here, really counts as a nebula, as such; being apparently an analog of the Kuiper belt surrounding the Sun.

The hospital, a gift from the British empire to its Russian allies, consisted of a basic clinic with three mobile field hospitals at the front. During a single week in the summer of 1916, Jefferson in one of the three field hospitals treated 340 wounded soldiers and conducted 33 major surgical operations. The majority of our wounded from the war think that he ought to be arrested immediately, something I hope will be a fait accompli in a few days.” A few days later Jefferson communicates: "I have just ...

In October 1957, Chemie Grünenthal, a German pharmaceutical company, began marketing thalidomide as part of a new compound formulated to combat nausea, in anticipation of a predicted influenza epidemic that year. Taking Grünenthal's assertions one step farther, the British company added labelling claiming that the drug was safe even for pregnant women. Later, American experiments on monkeys showed that pregnant monkeys who were given the drug between the 23rd and 31st day of pregnancy gave birth to offspring with exactly the same malformations as the affected children.

List of medical eponyms with Nazi associations: This article lists medical eponyms which have been associated with Nazi human experimentation or Nazi politics. While normally eponyms used in medicine serve to honor the memory of the physician or researcher who first documented a disease or pioneered a procedure, the propriety of such names resulting from unethical research practices is controversial.Mass suicides in 1945 Nazi Germany: Mass suicides in 1945 Nazi Germany among civilians, government officials and military personnel alike occurred with unusual frequency during the final weeks of Nazi Germany and the end of World War II in Europe for numerous reasons. These include the influence of Nazi propaganda, reaction to the suicide of Adolf Hitler, loyalty to the tenets of the Nazi Party, the nation's impending defeat in war, the anticipated Allied occupation of Nazi Germany, and fears of harsh treatment at the hands of military personnel both from the Western armies and the Soviet army.Ramush HaradinajBibliography of The Holocaust: This is a selected bibliography and other resources for The Holocaust.Saint-Florent Cathedral: Saint-Florent Cathedral or Nebbio Cathedral (Cathédrale Saint-Florent de Saint-Florent, also known as Cathédrale du Nebbio) is a former Roman Catholic cathedral and French national monument located in the town of Saint-Florent in Corsica.

(1/21) Gender differences in diagnosis and treatment of coronary artery disease from 1981 to 1997. No evidence for the Yentl syndrome.

AIMS: The aim of the present clinical study was to evaluate whether gender-related differences existed as regards the extent and localization of coronary artery lesions in patients with angiographically documented coronary artery disease, and whether these angiographic findings would lead to differences in further management. METHODS AND RESULTS: Over a 16-year period (1981-1997) we evaluated 1894 patients (1526 men, 368 women) with angiographically documented coronary artery disease (luminal stenosis >/=60%). For each patient the coronary angiographic results and subsequent revascularization procedures (percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty or coronary artery bypass graft surgery) were analysed. The study period was divided into the early angioplasty years (1981 to 1989) and the current angioplasty years (1990-1997). No gender differences in extent and localization of coronary angiographic lesions were observed. In men and women the incidence of single-vessel disease was 42% and 40%, two-vessel disease 27% and 27%, three-vessel disease 26% and 24%, and left main disease 5% and 8%, respectively (P=ns). Localization of disease in men and women was 36% and 39% for the left anterior descending coronary artery, 34% and 32% for the right coronary artery, and 27% and 26% for the left circumflex coronary artery, respectively (P=ns). There was a significant shift from multi-vessel disease towards single-vessel disease in both men and women (both P<0.001). As to subsequent management, a significant gender difference in favour of women was observed (P=0.021). Over time, the number of angioplasty procedures increased significantly from 11.6% to 23.2% for men (P<0.001), and for women from 17.6% to 28.0% (P=0.025), whereas the number of coronary artery bypass procedures decreased in men from 34.9% to 29. 5% (P=0.024) and in women from 42.6% to 30.6% (P=0.019). Referral to angioplasty (n=535) and coronary artery bypass surgery (n=616) in relation to the extent of the disease did not show any gender bias in favour of men. CONCLUSIONS: Our angiographic findings did not show significant gender differences as regards the extent and localization of coronary artery disease in patients with angiographically documented coronary artery disease. More importantly, no substantial evidence could be found for under-referral of women to subsequent therapeutic management. Therefore our study questions the presence of Yentl syndrome in the current era.  (+info)

(2/21) John Langdon Down: the man and the message.

John Langdon Down was the son of a village grocer. Born in Torpoint, Cornwall, in 1828, he was the 6th child of religious parents. He worked in the family business until he was 18 years old and he then qualified as a pharmacist before ultimately entering medical school at the London Hospital. He won numerous medals and prizes and immediately after taking his medical degree he was appointed medical superintendent of the Royal Earlswood Asylum for Idiots in Surrey. He reformed the institution and his efforts at classification resulted in his description of what he called Mongolian idiocy. His findings were based on measurements of the diameters of the head and of the palate and on his series of clinical photographs. He was a pioneer of the use of photography in hospitals. Mongolian idiocy became a widely used term but in 1961 a group of genetic experts wrote to the Lancet suggesting four alternatives. The editor chose Down's syndrome. WHO endorsed this later. Langdon Down was a supporter of liberal causes. He made important contributions to medical science, developed a large practice and he died a wealthy man in 1896. Normansfield, his private training and educational centre, had an international reputation. Only recently has his place in medical history been recognized.  (+info)

(6/21) Syndrome--a changing concept.

Syndrome is one of the oldest terms in the medical vocabulary. Traditionally, the term has been used mainly as a designation for complex medical entities, such as multiple abnormalities, that are characterized by clusters of concurring symptoms, usually three or more. During the mid-twentieth century, the meaning and the use of the term were altered. First to take place was an attempt to eliminate physicians' names from syndrome nomenclature, resulting in a significant increase in the use of descriptive designations in proportion to eponyms. But the trend was counterbalanced by the creation of new classes of eponyms. Eponymous syndrome nomenclature now includes the names of literary characters, patients' surnames, subjects of famous paintings, famous persons, geographic locations, institutions, biblical figures, and mythological characters. This was followed by a relaxation in the scope of the definition of syndrome, wherein the term could also be used as a modifier indicating a special (sometimes unspecified) complexity of an already named pathological condition. Eventually syndrome changed from its original use as an exclusively medical term and came to mean anything unusual, abnormal, bizarre, or humorous, whether medical, social, behavioral, or cultural. This unrestrained use of the term is the principal cause of an enormous volume of the sometimes irrelevant syndrome literature cluttering databases in the MEDLARS system and of the deterioration of "SYNDROME" as a specific MeSH term and a useful search parameter.  (+info)

(8/21) Reflections on eponyms in neuroscience terminology.

Eponyms have played a very significant linguistic role in technical and scientific terminology. They are an important feature of language that have contributed for a long time to engraving in history the names of those researchers who have devoted their lives to scientific discovery. In the field of medical terminology, they are an asset, although their semantic effectiveness has constituted a long-standing debate. We will analyze how language contributes to the advance of science and technology and the current position of eponyms in the health sciences. Eponymy in neuroscience has been used for a long time as a way to identify and recognize scientific issues, such as diseases, syndromes, methods, processes, substances, organs, and parts of organs as a way to honor those who, in a certain way, contributed to the progress of science. However, sometimes those honors do not correspond to the real contributors, thus receiving a nondeserved acknowledgment. Another problem with eponymic references is the lack of information about the matter in hand, because eponyms do not provide any clear information leading to the identification of the situation under study, as they are not reasonably descriptive. The aim of this article is to encourage the use of descriptive terms instead of eponyms and to establish a system of scientific nomenclature to consolidate the use of the language as a means of conveying scientific information among experts.  (+info)
