Presentations of summary statements representing the majority agreement of physicians, scientists, and other professionals convening for the purpose of reaching a consensus--often with findings and recommendations--on a subject of interest. The Conference, consisting of participants representing the scientific and lay viewpoints, is a significant means of evaluating current medical thought and reflects the latest advances in research for the respective field being addressed.
General agreement or collective opinion; the judgment arrived at by most of those concerned.
An iterative questionnaire designed to measure consensus among individual responses. In the classic Delphi approach, there is no interaction between responder and interviewer.
An approach of practicing medicine with the goal to improve and evaluate patient care. It requires the judicious integration of best research evidence with the patient's values to make decisions about medical care. This method is to help physicians make proper diagnosis, devise best testing plan, choose best treatment and methods of disease prevention, as well as develop guidelines for large groups of patients with the same disease. (from JAMA 296 (9), 2006)
Directions or principles presenting current or future rules of policy for assisting health care practitioners in patient care decisions regarding diagnosis, therapy, or related clinical circumstances. The guidelines may be developed by government agencies at any level, institutions, professional societies, governing boards, or by the convening of expert panels.

Eligibility and response guidelines for phase II clinical trials in androgen-independent prostate cancer: recommendations from the Prostate-Specific Antigen Working Group. (1/25)

PURPOSE: Prostate-specific antigen (PSA) is a glycoprotein that is found almost exclusively in normal and neoplastic prostate cells. For patients with metastatic disease, changes in PSA will often antedate changes in bone scan. Furthermore, many but not all investigators have observed an association between a decline in PSA levels of 50% or greater and survival. Since the majority of phase II clinical trials for patients with androgen-independent prostate cancer (AIPC) have used PSA as a marker, we believed it was important for investigators to agree on definitions and values for a minimum set of parameters for eligibility and PSA declines and to develop a common approach to outcome analysis and reporting. We held a consensus conference with 26 leading investigators in the field of AIPC to define these parameters. RESULT: We defined four patient groups: (1) progressive measurable disease, (2) progressive bone metastasis, (3) stable metastases and a rising PSA, and (4) rising PSA and no other evidence of metastatic disease. The purpose of determining the number of patients whose PSA level drops in a phase II trial of AIPC is to guide the selection of agents for further testing and phase III trials. We propose that investigators report at a minimum a PSA decline of at least 50% and this must be confirmed by a second PSA value 4 or more weeks later. Patients may not demonstrate clinical or radiographic evidence of disease progression during this time period. Some investigators may want to report additional measures of PSA changes (ie, 75% decline, 90% decline). Response duration and the time to PSA progression may also be important clinical end point. CONCLUSION: Through this consensus conference, we believe we have developed practical guidelines for using PSA as a measurement of outcome. Furthermore, the use of common standards is important as we determine which agents should progress to randomized trials which will use survival as an end point.  (+info)

Prevention of recurrent nephrolithiasis. (2/25)

The first episode of nephrolithiasis provides an opportunity to advise patients about measures for preventing future stones. Low fluid intake and excessive intake of protein, salt and oxalate are important modifiable risk factors for kidney stones. Calcium restriction is not useful and may potentiate osteoporosis. Diseases such as hyperparathyroidism, sarcoidosis and renal tubular acidosis should be considered in patients with nephrolithiasis. A 24-hour urine collection with measurement of the important analytes is usually reserved for use in patients with recurrent stone formation. In these patients, the major urinary risk factors include hypercalciuria, hyperoxaluria, hypocitraturia and hyperuricosuria. Effective preventive and treatment measures include thiazide therapy to lower the urinary calcium level, citrate supplementation to increase the urinary citrate level and, sometimes, allopurinol therapy to lower uric acid excretion. Uric acid stones are most often treated with citrate supplementation. Data now support the cost-effectiveness of evaluation and treatment of patients with recurrent stones.  (+info)

US-Japan workshops in medical mycology: past, present and future. (3/25)

The Extramural Mycology Program of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) has organized and implemented a five workshop series in medical mycology during a critical period in the evolution of contemporary medical mycology (1992 to 2000; http://www.niaid.nih.gov/research/dmid.htm). The goals of the workshop series were to: initiate interactions; build collaborations; identify research needs; turn needs into opportunities; stimulate molecular research in medical mycology; and summarize recommendations emerging from the workshop proceedings. A recurring recommendation in the series was to foster communications within and beyond the field of medical mycology. US-Japan interactions were noted as one specific example of potential information exchange for mutual benefit. The first formal action directed at this recommendation was the workshop Emergence and Recognition of Fungal Diseases convened under the auspices of the US-Japan Cooperative Medical Science Program (USJCMSP; http://www.niaid. nih.gov/dmid/us%5Fjapan/default.htm) in Bethesda, Maryland USA on 30 June 1999 (D.M. Dixon & T. Matsumoto, co-chairs). A major goal of the workshop was to present contemporary medical mycology to the Joint Committee of the USJCMSP through representative research presentations in order to make the Committee aware of current status in the field, and the potential for scientific interactions. The second formal action is the workshop, under the auspices of the Japanese Society for Medical Mycology Medical Perspectives of Fungal Genome Studies scheduled for 28 November 2000 in Tokyo, Japan (T. Matsumoto & D.M. Dixon, co-chairs). The NIAID Mycology Workshop series recommended interactions between the following groups: academic and pharmaceutical; medical and molecular (model systems); medical and plant pathogens; basic and clinical; mycologists and immunologists. The first two US-Japan workshops can be viewed as consistent with these recommendations, and serve as a Western/Eastern gateway for exchange. The focus of the second US-Japan workshop on genome projects for the medically important fungi provides an excellent model for international communications. Given the tsunami of information that is flowing from genomics and bioinformatics, it is clear that global interactions will be essential in managing and interpreting the data.  (+info)

Guidelines and algorithms: perceptions of why and when they are successful and how to improve them. (4/25)

Medicine is increasingly complex, a reality created by the explosion of knowledge during the last 50 years. The cost of applying this knowledge creates a daunting economic challenge. As a result, there has been a profusion of guidelines intended to influence medical practice. This report explores the interrelated issues and concepts that impact the value and success of guidelines. These include medical quality and error, compliance, and the impact on outcomes in an evidence-based medicine context. Lessons learned from previous guidelines must be understood in relation to human behavior. Legal implications of the guidelines must be considered because both an increase and a decrease in liability can be anticipated. Many products have been labeled "advocacy guidelines" with a negative context. They are believed to express motivation rather than optimizing care. The ideal of professionalism is challenged, and there is potential for the growing use of guidelines in enforcing punitive actions. Constructive experience has emphasized the appropriate required elements for practice guidelines: a systematic review of the literature, an assessment of the volume and level of the evidence, and development of a review process by an appropriate multidisciplinary group for consistency, clinical impact, and resource implications leading to clearly stated and reasonable recommendations. The dissemination of guidelines, beyond conventional publication in a journal, will impact the success of the intended outcomes. The exploitation of electronic avenues, including the Internet and the evolving interactive electronic medical record, seems to be essential for future success in these endeavors.  (+info)

Revised 2003 consensus on diagnostic criteria and long-term health risks related to polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). (5/25)

Since the 1990 NIH-sponsored conference on polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), it has become appreciated that the syndrome encompasses a broader spectrum of signs and symptoms of ovarian dysfunction than those defined by the original diagnostic criteria. The 2003 Rotterdam consensus workshop concluded that PCOS is a syndrome of ovarian dysfunction along with the cardinal features hyperandrogenism and polycystic ovary (PCO) morphology. PCOS remains a syndrome and, as such, no single diagnostic criterion (such as hyperandrogenism or PCO) is sufficient for clinical diagnosis. Its clinical manifestations may include: menstrual irregularities, signs of androgen excess, and obesity. Insulin resistance and elevated serum LH levels are also common features in PCOS. PCOS is associated with an increased risk of type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular events.  (+info)

The NIH criteria for parathyroidectomy in asymptomatic primary hyperparathyroidism: are they too limited? (6/25)

OBJECTIVE: To determine whether preoperative and postoperative symptoms and outcome differ in patients who meet or fail to meet the NIH criteria for parathyroidectomy. SUMMARY BACKGROUND DATA: The NIH Consensus Conference on primary hyperparathyroidism in 1990 defined criteria for surgical intervention suggesting that some patients can be safely managed without surgery. METHODS: Over a 3-year period, 202 consecutive patients undergoing parathyroidectomy for primary hyperparathyroidism at a tertiary referral center were prospectively given a questionnaire regarding their symptoms and associated conditions during their initial and follow-up office visits as were 63 thyroid control patients. The 178 patients who completed the follow-up questionnaire were assigned to 2 groups according to the NIH criteria for parathyroidectomy. The frequency of preoperative symptoms and conditions associated with primary hyperparathyroidism as well as postoperative improvement in symptoms and surgical outcome were compared. RESULTS: Of the 178 parathyroid patients, 103 met the NIH criteria for parathyroidectomy whereas 75 did not. Patient profiles were similar in each group except mean ages, 55 versus 65, and preoperative serum calcium levels, 11.5 mg/dL versus 11.0 mg/dL (NIH and non-NIH groups, respectively; P < 0.001). The incidence of preoperative nonspecific somatic and neuropsychiatric symptoms and associated conditions was equivalent in both groups and more common than in the 63 thyroid control patients. After parathyroidectomy, symptomatic improvement was dramatic and equal between the 2 parathyroid groups. Postoperative mean serum calcium levels were similar (8.78 mg/dL, NIH group, versus 8.75 mg/dL, non-NIH group). CONCLUSION: Symptoms were more common in patients with primary hyperparathyroidism versus thyroid controls, but were not different between those patients who met the NIH criteria for parathyroidectomy and those who did not. Patients in both parathyroid groups benefited symptomatically after successful parathyroidectomy.  (+info)

The pathogenesis of atherosclerosis. An interpretive history of the cholesterol controversy, part IV: the 1984 coronary primary prevention trial ends it--almost. (7/25)

As of the early 1980s, despite the wealth of evidence from experimental animal models, the extensive epidemiologic evidence, the powerful genetic evidence, and the strongly suggestive clinical intervention trial results, most clinicians still remained unpersuaded regarding the relevance of the lipid hypothesis. What was needed was a well-designed, large-scale, long-term, double-blind study demonstrating a statistically significant impact of treatment on coronary heart disease events. The National Institutes of Health (NIH) had laid the groundwork for such a study as early as 1970, but the study was not completed and the results published until 1984. This study, the Coronary Primary Prevention Trial, showed that treatment with a bile acid binding resin reduced major coronary events in hypercholesterolemic men by 19%, with a P value of 0.05. The NIH followed this up with a national Consensus Development Conference on Lowering Blood Cholesterol to Prevent Heart Disease. For the first time, the NIH now went on record advocating screening for hypercholesterolemia and urging aggressive treatment for those at high risk. The Institute initiated a national cooperative program to that end, the National Cholesterol Education Program. For the first time, preventing coronary heart disease became a national public health goal.  (+info)

Gastrointestinal surgery for severe obesity: National Institutes of Health Consensus Development Conference Statement. (8/25)

The National Institutes of Health Consensus Development Conference on Gastrointestinal Surgery for Severe Obesity brought together surgeons, gastroenterologists, endocrinologists, psychiatrists, nutritionists, and other health care professionals as well as the public to address: the nonsurgical treatment options for severe obesity, the surgical treatments for severe obesity and the criteria for selection, the efficacy and risks of surgical treatments for severe obesity, and the need for future research on and epidemiological evaluation of these therapies. Following 2 days of presentations by experts and discussion by the audience, a consensus panel weighed the evidence and prepared their consensus statement. Among their findings, the panel recommended that (1) patients seeking therapy for severe obesity for the first time should be considered for treatment in a non-surgical program with integrated components of a dietary regimen, appropriate exercise, and behavioral modification and support, (2) gastric restrictive or bypass procedures could be considered for well-informed and motivated patients with acceptable operative risks, (3) patients who are candidates for surgical procedures should be selected carefully after evaluation by a multidisciplinary team with medical, surgical, psychiatric, and nutritional expertise, (4) the operation be performed by a surgeon substantially experienced with the appropriate procedures and working in a clinical setting with adequate support for all aspects of management and assessment, and (5) lifelong medical surveillance after surgical therapy is a necessity. The full text of the consensus panel's statement follows.  (+info)

The National Institutes of Health Consensus Development Conference on the Effect of Corticosteroids for Fetal Maturation on Perinatal Outcomes brought together specialists in obstetrics, neonatology, pharmacology, epidemiology, nursing; basic scientists in physiology and cellular biology; and the public to address the following questions: (1) For what conditions and purposes are antenatal corticosteroids used, and what is the scientific basis for that use? (2) What are the short-term and long-term benefits of antenatal corticosteroid treatment? (3) What are the short-term and long-term adverse effects for the infant and mother? (4) What are the economic consequences of this treatment? (5) What is the influence of the type of corticosteroid, dosage, timing and circumstances of administration, and associated therapy on treatment outcome?

The rate of cesarean delivery in the United States is at a record high and continues to increase. Conversely, rates of vaginal birth after cesarean delivery (VBAC) have declined (to 12.7 percent in 2002 from 28.3 percent in 1996). Childbirth accounts for about one quarter of hospital admissions for U.S. women. Guise and colleagues conducted an extensive review to evaluate the benefits and harms of VBAC and elective repeat cesarean delivery.. The authors searched electronic databases for relevant published articles, systematic reviews, clinical trials, and reports. They also sought evidence from reference lists and contacted experts for recommendations. Relevant evidence arising since the 1980 National Institutes of Health Consensus Development Conference on VBAC was sought. Clinical studies conducted in developed countries were eligible for inclusion if they contained at least 10 patients and provided data about uterine rupture, VBAC rates, and maternal and fetal outcomes, and were not focused ...

Neurofibromas are benign tumors of perineural cell origin that arise from elements of the peripheral nervous system (1). The majority of neurofibromas are often solitary lesions that occur in the dermis or subcutis. Neurofibromas in the skin are more common than those occurring in the deeper soft tissues. Neurofibroma of the breast is very rare (1-5). It is most commonly associated with neurofibromatosis Type 1 (NF1). The diagnosis of NF1 is based on clinical criteria established by the National Institutes of Health Consensus Development Conference (6). The most common clinical manifestations are six or more café au lait spots, two or more neurofibromas, two or more Lisch nodules, axillary or inguinal freckling, sphenoid wing dysplasia or thinning of a long bone cortex and optic glioma. Two or more of the criteria are required for diagnosis. Tumors occur in NF1 patients include neurofibroma, optic nerve glioma, leukemia, rhabdomyosarcoma, pheochromocytoma, and malignant peripheral nerve sheath ...

Search Strategy. A search strategy was developed by a consultant to the project, and searches of EMBASE and MEDLINE resulted in a database of 807 annotated references. The annotated references were read independently by at least two people to achieve consensus on 94 that were selected for retrieval. The reference lists in those 94 were then checked, and studies that appeared to be related to our questions were added, producing a final database of 162 references.. Ideally, the evidence should have been selected from high-scoring studies with strong design, as described in criteria of the Agency for Health Care Policy and Research (AHCPR). Many studies, however, were both weak in design and of limited value. Since the evidence on management of root caries is rarely supported by more than a few studies, recommendations on how to do so can only be tentative.. Findings on Prevalence. Prevalence estimates of root decayed and filled surfaces (RDFS) were taken from the NHANES III study. The adjusted ...
Denis OMullane, B.D.S., Ph.D., F.D.S., F.F.D., and John Clarkson, B.D.S., Ph.D.:. The extent to which practitioners make use of new methods for identifying patients at risk of dental caries and for diagnosing early carious lesions is not known. However, a worldwide increase in sales of new instruments for carrying out these tasks would seem to indicate rising interest in new techniques.. It is likely that dental practitioners choose combinations of appropriate preventive approaches for arresting or reversing early carious lesions. In the systematic review conducted by Research Triangle Institute (Bader, Shugars, Rozier, et al., 2000), it is pointed out that surprisingly few studies have been conducted on the results obtained with combined methods. For example, only four studies were found that had examined the effectiveness of combining chlorhexidine and fluoride (Spets-Happonen, Luoma, Forss, et al., 1991; Luoma, Ronnberg, 1987; Tenovuo, Hakkinen, Paunio, et al., 1992; Petersson, Magnusson, ...
The rationale for recommending daily intakes of 1,000-1,500 mg of calcium, especially in older subjects with diabetes,[lxxx][80] is based on the recommendations of the Institute of Medicine Food and Nutrition Board[lxxxi][81] and the National Institutes of Health Consensus Development Panel on Osteoporosis Prevention, Diagnosis, and Therapy.[lxxxii][82] This recommendation appears to be safe and likely to reduce the incidence of osteoporosis in older individuals with diabetes.

Objective: To review alternate treatments (Tx) of Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) - those other than psychoactive medication and behavioral/psychosocal Tx - for the November, 1998 National Institute of Health (NIH) Consensus Development Conference on ADHD. Method: The literature was searched on Medline and Psychinfo 1963-1998 and investigators known to be interested in alternate Tx were contacted for unpublished data. Results: Twenty-three alternate Tx were identified, ranging in scientific documentation from discrediting controlled studies through mere hypotheses to positive controlled double-blind clinical trials. Many of them are applicable only to a restricted etiological subgroup. The oligoantigenic or few-foods diet has convincing double-blind evidence of efficacy in multiple trials for a properly selected subgroup. Enzyme-potentiated desensitization to foods, relation/EMG biofeedback, and deleading also have controlled evidence of efficacy. Glyconutritional ...

no nation other than the United States routinely screens premenopausal women by mammography. In this context, it may be noted that the January 1997 National Institutes of Health Consensus Conference recommended against premenopausal screening (24), a decision that the NCI, but not the ACS, accepted (4). However, under pressure from Congress and the ACS, the NCI reversed its decision some three months later in favor of premenopausal screening. The U.S. overkill extends to the standard practice of taking two or more mammograms per breast annually in postmenopausal women. This contrasts with the more restrained European practice of a single view every two to three years (4 ...

Getting started in risk assessments requires some basic training (see Christensen and Manuele, 1999 for more details). Although the basic procedures are quickly learned, some of the nuances can be more difficult to grasp initially. Once an organization has decided to use risk assessments to evaluate a design, the first step is to determine which method to use. There are several techniques available, some of which are discussed herein. Several will be shown in the presentation. For more details refer to Risk Assessment Benchmarks 2000: Getting started, making progress (Main, 2000) or ANSI B11 TR3.. Many methods can be conducted using basic office programs such as Excel or Access. However, there is no small effort required in setting up the analysis and formatting the results. Special software is available to guide users through the risk assessment process. Some examples of software can be found at: www.robotics.org, www.semi.org, www.sae.org and www.designsafe.com..

Kent. He was a friend. I dare to say even a good friend. Thats pretty strange for some to accept, considering that he and I only spent a total of an hour together in person. Seumas was a computer programmer. A computer game programmer. And so am I. We met online through an electronic mailing list about computer graphics. At first, we just saw each others messages go past. Eventually, when youve seen the list for a while, you start to recognize peoples names and styles. You begin to learn about point of view, and which people are usually sensible, and which ones are off-the-wall. His messages were always short and to the point, well-written and well-considered. He was clearly one of the good guys. At a game development conference last year, someone who knew us both in person briefly introduced us. I was shocked -- he looked like a pimply-faced kid! Turns out he was just getting over a serious case of the chicken pox. But he was still a kid. This intelligent, sensible graphics programmer ...

Diagnosing gestational diabetes: the nih consensus, Overview of the problem of gestational diabetes presented by catherine spong, md associate director
Premature birth is a major public health problem in the United States and internationally. Infants born at or before 32 weeks gestation (2% of all births in the United States in 2007) are at extremely high risk for death in the neonatal period or for pulmonary, visual, and neurodevelopmental morbidities with lifelong consequences including bronchopulmonary dysplasia, retinopathy of prematurity, and brain injury. Risks for adverse outcomes increase with decreasing gestational age. The economic costs to care for these infants are also substantial (estimated at $26 billion in 2005 in the United States). It is clear that the need for strategies to improve outcomes for this high-risk population is great, and this need has prompted testing of new therapies with the potential to decrease pulmonary and other complications of prematurity. Inhaled nitric oxide (iNO) emerged as one such therapy. To provide health care professionals, families, and the general public with a responsible assessment of ...

The microvasculature (MV) of brains with Alzheimers disease neuropathologic change (ADNC) and cerebral amyloid angiopathy (CAA), in the absence of concurrent pathologies (e.g., infarctions, Lewy bodies), is incompletely understood. To analyze microvascular density, diameter and extracellular matrix (ECM) content in association with ADNC and CAA. We examined samples of cerebral cortex and isolated brain microvasculature (MV) from subjects with the National Institute on Aging-Alzheimers Association (NIA-AA) designations of not-, intermediate-, or high ADNC and from subjects with no CAA and moderate-severe CAA. Cases for all groups were selected with no major (territorial) strokes, ≤ 1 microinfarct in screening sections, and no Lewy body pathology. MV density and diameter were measured from cortical brain sections. Levels of basement membrane (BM) ECM components, the protein product of TNF-stimulated gene-6 (TSG-6), and the ubiquitous glycosaminoglycan hyaluronan (HA) were assayed by western blots or

A number of definitions of bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD), or chronic lung disease, have been used. A June 2000 National Institute of Child Health and Human Development/National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute Workshop proposed a severity-based definition of BPD for infants ,32 weeks gestational age (GA). Mild BPD was defined as a need for supplemental oxygen (O2) for , or =28 days but not at 36 weeks postmenstrual age (PMA) or discharge, moderate BPD as O2 for , or =28 days plus treatment with ,30% O2 at 36 weeks PMA, and severe BPD as O2 for , or =28 days plus , or =30% O2 and/or positive pressure at 36 weeks PMA. The objective of this study was to determine the predictive validity of the severity-based, consensus definition of BPD. Data from 4866 infants (birth weight , or =1000 g, GA ,32 weeks, alive at 36 weeks PMA) who were entered into the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development Neonatal Research Network Very Low Birth weight (VLBW) Infant Registry between January ...

The prognosis of a gastrointestinal stromal tumor (GIST) is influenced by its anatomic site; however, few studies on the prognosis of gastric GISTs have been reported. The aims of this study were to evaluate long-term prognoses of patients who underwent surgical resection for gastric GISTs and to compare the clinical efficacy of two staging systems: the National Institutes of Health (NIH) consensus criteria and the 7th Union for International Cancer Control/American Joint Committee on Cancer (UICC/AJCC) tumor-node-metastasis (TNM) staging system. We conducted a retrospective observational study of 145 patients who underwent surgical resection for gastric GISTs between February 2001 and June 2012 at Pusan National University Hospital (Busan, Korea). Recurrence and 5-year recurrence-free survival (RFS) rates were analyzed. During a median follow-up period of 44 months (range, 6-144 months), 11 recurrent lesions were detected in 9 patients (6.4%). On multivariate analysis, tumor size (|5 cm), mitotic count

Several interventions have been demonstrated to be effective in reducing the prevalence of behaviors that place adolescents at risk for acquisition of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV).1-6 These programs have in common a small-group and face-to-face method of delivery, an emphasis on skills development referent to decision making, communication, negotiation and condom use, use of a wide variety of instructional formats and approaches to intervention delivery, and grounding in social learning theory.2-6 Despite the encouraging results that accompany these studies with reference to adolescent risk reduction, new challenges have emerged. First, the few studies that have followed participants beyond the immediate intervention period (6 months or less) have noted a decay of intervention effect on behavior over time,5,6 prompting members of the National Institutes of Health Consensus Panel: Intervention to Prevent HIV Risk Behavior to identify sustainability of program effectiveness as 1 of the most ...
WR) 304. The Fourth Aim: A Toolkit for Medical Educators to Develop Resilience, Maintain Professional Satisfaction, and Restore Joy to Teaching and Medical Practice. Research on burnout in medicine has revealed an epidemic. Higher prevalence (40 to 80%) is noted among medical residents and fellows compared to medical students, physicians, or college graduates of similar age. Among internists, burnout approaches 60%. High rates of burnout also apply to medical educators, which is especially troubling given that we serve two constituencies: patients and learners. There is potential for triple damage: to ourselves, our patients, and our learners. This erosion of professional satisfaction in a profession charged with healing is troubling. It forces us to ask a difficult question; How can we effectively enhance a sense of self-worth and physical integrity in the people we serve, if we ourselves have become seriously deficient (even impaired) in these areas? The Triple Aim, developed by the Institute ...

The good news is that much has been achieved since the publication of the Maitland Commissions famous Missing Link report. Measured in conventional terms, such as teledensity or percentage of households with a telephone, there has been a substantial narrowing of the gap. Africa now has more than twice as many main telephone connections as Tokyo and 85 percent of todays world population share 45 percent of all telephone lines (see Figure 1). In comparison, in 1984, 90 percent of the worlds people used only ten percent of all telephone lines.. The bad news is that the mismatch between the technology-rich and the technology-poor seems to be a step ahead and while we are still filling the gap of the 1980s, the Information and Communication Technology (ICT) wave of the 1990s risks digging new holes behind our back. The two major market trends that have characterized the last decade - the growth of mobile communications and the development of the Internet - were not foreseen in the Maitland report. ...
An Australian group found that Tregs were elevated in thirty individuals with Fukuda for chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS).[4] The same group found elevated Tregs in a multiple sclerosis comparison study.[5]. However, a study that used the Revised Canadian Consensus Criteria (2010) criteria found Tregs were depleted in 76 people with ME/CFS.[6]. A second study in Japan also found decreased Tregs in 41 people who met both the Canadian Consensus Criteria and the International Consensus Criteria as compared to age- and gender-matched healthy controls.[7]. It is worth noting that such seemingly contradictory results are often found in the systemic autoimmune diseases in which T cell subsets are often studied. Even in illnesses with well-established biomarkers, age, gender, and time since onset lead to significant variability.[8]. ...

Functional MRI is potentially useful for the evaluation of brain function in Alzheimers disease (AD). We compared fMRI and perfusion SPECT in 16 probable AD patients (NIH criteria), and 10 normal age-matched controls. The MR system (GE Signa 1.5T) was equipped with an Advanced NMR Systems Inc. echo planar coil. We used an axial spin echo technique, and injected gadoteridol (Bracco Inc) as a bolus over 6 sec at 20 sec into the scanning sequence. Calculation of CBV maps was performed by the method of Belliveau et al. SPECT was obtained with a digital annular system (DSI Inc) 20 minutes after a 20 mCi injection of Tc99m HM -PAO. Each SPECT dataset was superposed (registered) to its corresponding MR image dataset, using a computerized iterative surface fitting algorithm. A polar grid system was used to divide a mid-axial fMRI or SPECT slice into 120 regions. The correlation of mean regional activity (counts/pixel) on SPECT and mean signal intensity on fMRI, assessed with Pearsons product moment ...

Aims/hypothesis According to the consensus criteria developed for type 1 diabetes, an individual can be diagnosed with insulitis when ,= 15 CD45(+) cells are found within the parenchyma or in the islet-exocrine interface in ,= 3 islets. The aim of this study was to determine the frequency of individuals with type 2 diabetes fulfilling these criteria with reference to non-diabetic and type 1 diabetic individuals. Methods Insulitis was determined by examining CD45(+) cells in the pancreases of 50, 13 and 44 organ donors with type 2 diabetes, type 1 diabetes and no diabetes, respectively. CD3(+) cells (T cells) infiltrating the islets were evaluated in insulitic donors. In insulitic donors with type 2 diabetes, the pancreases were characterised according to the presence of CD68 (macrophages), myeloperoxidase (MPO; neutrophils), CD3, CD20 (B cells) and HLA class I hyperstained islets. In all type 2 diabetic donors, potential correlations of insulitis with dynamic glucose-stimulated insulin secretion ...
