Medical practice: defendants and prisoners. (1/427)

It is argued in this paper that a doctor cannot serve two masters. The work of the prison medical officer is examined and it is shown that his dual allegiance to the state and to those individuals who are under his care results in activities which largely favour the former. The World Health Organisation prescribes a system of health ethics which indicates, in qualitative terms, the responsibility of each state for health provisions. In contrast, the World Medical Association acts as both promulgator and guardian of a code of medical ethics which determines the responsibilities of the doctor to his patient. In the historical sense medical practitioners have always emphasized the sanctity of the relationship with their patients and the doctor's role as an expert witness is shown to have centered around this bond. The development of medical services in prisons has focused more on the partnership between doctor and institution. Imprisonment in itself could be seen as prejudicial to health as are disciplinary methods which are more obviously detrimental. The involvement of medical practitioners in such procedures is discussed in the light of their role as the prisoner's personal physician.  (+info)

Donor funding for health reform in Africa: is non-project assistance the right prescription? (2/427)

During the past 10 years, donors have recognized the need for major reforms to achieve sustainable development. Using non-project assistance they have attempted to leverage reforms by offering financing conditioned on the enactment of reform. The experience of USAID's health reform programmes in Niger and Nigeria suggest these programmes have proved more difficult to implement than expected. When a country has in place a high level of fiscal accountability and high institutional capacity, programmes of conditioned non-project assistance may be more effective in achieving reforms than traditional project assistance. However, when these elements are lacking, as they were in Niger, non-project assistance offers nothing inherently superior than traditional project assistance. Non-project assistance may be most effective for assisting the implementation of policy reforms adopted by the host government.  (+info)

The duration of non-rodent toxicity studies for pharmaceuticals. International Conference on Harmonication (ICH). (3/427)

At the present time, there are no uniform standards for the duration of non-rodent chronic toxicity studies. The European Union (EU) requires a 6-month non-rodent study. In Japan, a 6-month study is sufficient for most, but not all, compounds. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) maintains its standard duration of 12 months for non-rodents, with 6-month studies accepted for some clinical indications on a case-by-case basis. To achieve harmonization on the duration of non-rodent toxicity studies, each member regulatory region (EU, U.S., and Japan) of the International Conference on Harmonization (ICH) collected non-rodent studies with significant new toxicological findings that had occurred after 6 months. An ICH expert working group was organized that included representatives from the regulatory authorities of each ICH region, to jointly review all available case studies for the purpose of arriving at a consensus on the best duration time for non-rodent toxicity studies. Eighteen case studies were identified and evaluated (16 original cases plus 2 additional FDA cases); most of the toxicities identified fell into the following categories: (1) toxicities identified at 6 months; (2) toxicities observed at 12 months, which were absent or considered isolated and not noteworthy findings at 6 months; (3) drug-related deaths or morbidity that occurred between 6 and 12 months, with a pattern of toxicity that permitted the interpolation of findings to an intermediate interval between 6 and 12 months; and (4) a shift in the dose response for toxicity with increasing duration of drug exposure. Of the 18 cases evaluated, 11 supported a study-duration of 9-12 months, 4 supported a duration of 12 months, and the 3 remaining cases indicated that a 6-month study would be adequate. The working group concluded that there was sufficient evidence to support a harmonized 9-month duration for non-rodent toxicity studies, which would be applicable for most categories of pharmaceuticals.  (+info)

Keeping a tight grip on the reins: donor control over aid coordination and management in Bangladesh. (4/427)

A long-standing consensus that aid coordination should be owned by recipient authorities has been eclipsed by accord on the desirability of recipient management of aid along-side domestic resources. Nonetheless, in many low and lower-middle income countries, donors remain remarkably uncoordinated; where attempts at coordination are made, they are often donor-driven, and only a small proportion of aid is directly managed by recipients. This paper draws on evidence from an in-depth review of aid to the health sector in Bangladesh to analyze the systems by which external resources are managed. Based on interviews with key stakeholders, a questionnaire survey and analysis of documentary sources, the factors constraining the government from assuming a more active role in aid management are explored. The results suggest that donor perceptions of weak government capacity, inadequate accountability and compromised integrity only partially account for the propensity for donor leadership. Equally important is the consideration that aid coordination has a markedly political dimension. Stakeholders are well aware of the power, influence and leverage which aid coordination confers, an awareness which colours the desire of some stakeholders to lead aid coordination processes, and conditions the extent and manner by which others wish to be involved. It is argued that recipient management of external aid is dependent on major changes in the attitudes and behaviours of recipients and donors alike.  (+info)

Rehabilitating health services in Cambodia: the challenge of coordination in chronic political emergencies. (5/427)

The end of the Cold War brought with it opportunities to resolve a number of conflicts around the world, including those in Angola, Cambodia, El Salvador and Mozambique. International political efforts to negotiate peace in these countries were accompanied by significant aid programmes ostensibly designed to redress the worst effects of conflict and to contribute to the consolidation of peace. Such periods of political transition, and associated aid inflows, constitute an opportunity to improve health services in countries whose health indicators have been among the worst in the world and where access to basic health services is significantly diminished by war. This paper analyzes the particular constraints to effective coordination of health sector aid in situations of 'post'-conflict transition. These include: the uncertain legitimacy and competence of state structures; donor choice of implementing channels; and actions by national and international political actors which served to undermine coordination mechanisms in order to further their respective agendas. These obstacles hindered efforts by health professionals to establish an effective coordination regime, for example, through NGO mapping and the establishment of aid coordinating committees at national and provincial levels. These technical measures were unable to address the basic constitutional question of who had the authority to determine the distribution of scarce resources during a period of transition in political authority. The peculiar difficulties of establishing effective coordination mechanisms are important to address if the long-term effectiveness of rehabilitation aid is to be enhanced.  (+info)

Managing external resources in Mozambique: building new aid relationships on shifting sands? (6/427)

The Mozambican health sector is recovering from war and general disruption. This massive endeavour is supported by several donor agencies, which contribute a substantial proportion of national health expenditure. The final years of the war and the transition period have seen an extreme fragmentation of the health sector. To correct it, serious efforts to coordinate the plethora of aid agencies and related external inputs have taken place. This paper reviews the actors present on the Mozambican health scene and their interactions. The existing aid management mechanisms are described and their effectiveness appraised. The factors affecting both the process and its outcomes are analyzed. Given the prevailing complexity, this research presents a number of tentative conclusions. First, the evidence suggests that coordination efforts have paid off. However, progress has required intense and sustained work. Incremental approaches, where donor demands are progressively raised as the system is strengthened, have been crucial. The initiative has come mainly from donors, with the Ministry of Health receptive and reactive. When the recipient administration has been able to take advantage of donor initiatives, success has ensued. Individual people have been crucial in shaping the process. Critical factors contributing to positive developments on both sides of the donor-recipient relationship have been frankness, risk-taking and a long-term perspective.  (+info)

Small fish in a big pond? External aid and the health sector in South Africa. (7/427)

Since a new government was elected in 1994, South Africa has become a favoured nation for the many bilateral and multi-lateral agencies providing aid to developing countries. Despite several relatively large pledges of 'transition support', however, external resources constitute less than 2% of the annual government budget. This non-dependence has established a degree of equilibrium in a relationship normally regarded as highly unequal in other African countries. Although international donors funded the antiapartheid movement in South Africa prior to 1994, the new government inherited a chaotic administration that had little institutional experience of conventional development aid. Many of the new cadres entering government had not been exposed to the workings of government, let alone donor, bureaucratic processes. It is not surprising, therefore, that in the first few years after 1994, the aid relationship was characterized by low disbursements, unrealistic expectations and a degree of conflict. Since 1997, however, aid supported projects have started to become more visible. Within the broad objective of supporting transformation of the health system, one of the key areas of donor support is managerial capacity development, particularly of district, hospital and provincial health structures. These initiatives tend to be poorly coordinated, a problem compounded by a quasi-federal system in which provinces have large amounts of autonomy. The contribution of donor aid to strengthening the health system could be enhanced by the establishment of a clear national framework to guide the many externally supported projects building managerial skills and systems.  (+info)

Managing external resources in the health sector: are there lessons for SWAps (sector-wide approaches)? (8/427)

Drawing on the case studies presented in this issue, from Bangladesh, Cambodia, Mozambique, Zambia and South Africa, and examples from other countries, this paper asks what general conclusions can be drawn about the management of external resources, and specifically what lessons could inform the future implementation of sector-wide approaches (SWAps) in the health sector. Factors constraining the management of aid by ministries of health are grouped under three themes: context and timing, institutional capacities and the interplay of power and influence in negotiations over aid. Two factors, often underplayed, were found to be important in facilitating management of resources: the inter-relationship of formal and informal relationships, and the extent to which incremental changes are tolerated. The main conclusion is that coordination and management of external resources is inherently unstable, involving a changing group of actors, many of whom enjoy considerable autonomy, but who need each other to materialize their often somewhat different goals. Managing aid is not a linear process, but is subject to set-backs and crises, although it can also produce positive spin-offs unexpectedly. It is highly dependent on institutional and systemic issues within both donor and recipient environments. In promoting sector-wide approaches the key will be to recognize context-specific conditions in each country, to find ways of building capacity in ministries of health to develop and own the future vision of the health sector, and to negotiate a realistic package that is explicit in its agreed objectives. The paper ends with identifying crucial actions that will enable ministries of health to take the lead role in developing and implementing SWAps.  (+info)

The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) announces its intention to hold the International Conference on Integrated Medical Imaging in Cardiovascular Diseases (IMIC2013). Cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) are an important sub-group of non-communicable diseases and are one of the main priorities in the health care systems of many IAEA Member States. Medical imaging, including molecular nuclear medicine, is extremely important in that it offers strategic advantages in both diagnostic and therapeutic decision making. It provides inputs for diagnosis, staging, treatment, prognosis and follow-up in the management of CVDs. Medical imaging includes techniques such as single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT), positron emission tomography (PET), echocardiography, computed tomography (CT), and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). These techniques provide an excellent opportunity to understand the pathology of individual patients and can therefore serve to facilitate tailored clinical management. ...

Posted on 03/02/2006 5:15:41 PM PST by indcons. The head of the United Nations nuclear watchdog has welcomed a nuclear agreement between the US and India. International Atomic Energy Agency chief (IAEA) Mohammed ElBaradei said it would boost non-proliferation efforts. The UK and France also hailed the deal. But it was criticised by some members of the US Congress, who said it would lead to the spread of nuclear weapons. Under the accord, India gets access to US civil nuclear technology and opens its nuclear facilities to inspection. US President George W Bush - who finalised the agreement with Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh in Delhi - called it historic. However, Mr Bush admitted it might be hard to get it through the US Congress, which must ratify it. The BBCs Jonathan Beale in Washington says Mr Bush has a fight on his hands, after being accused of sending out the wrong signal just as America and its allies try to limit Irans nuclear ambitions ...

Since the start of implementation of the new set of procedures under Security Council resolution 1409 (2002) in July, based on the Goods Review List (GRL), the United Nations Secretariat has processed 1,987 contracts for humanitarian supplies and equipment worth almost $3.47 billion. Of this total, 63 per cent or 1,252 contracts worth about $1.51 billion have been approved by OIP after having been assessed by UNMOVIC and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) as not containing any GRL items, including a number of contracts previously placed on hold by the 661 Committee. UNMOVIC/IAEA have categorized 689 contracts worth $1.91 billion (34.7 per cent) as GRL non-compliant , requiring additional technical information from suppliers to enable final assessment. So far, 43 contracts worth $44.2 million, or 2.2 per cent, have been found to contain GRL items, of which eight contracts have been approved and two rejected by the Committee, while the remainder are at various stages of action either by ...
The Committee was informed that The International Pharmacopoeia contained only general methods for the analysis of radiopharmaceuticals; there were no individual monographs for such products, mainly because they were not on the WHO Model List of Essential Drugs. The Committee discussed a proposal to either retain or delete the general methods for the analysis of radiopharmaceuticals, and/or to prepare specific monographs for them. The Committee recommended that the general methods of analysis should be deleted from The International Pharmacopoeia and that a separate publication on radiopharmaceuticals (independent of The International Pharmacopoeia) should be prepared in collaboration with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). It was also agreed that, at a future meeting of the Committee, it should be decided whether these newly developed monographs for radiopharmaceuticals should be kept separate from, or again included in, The International Pharmacopoeia. ...
Iran has called on the United Nations to avoid international pressure to stage a crackdown over its nuclear programme. An official for the country said it believed that goodwill from all parties could resolve the issue. Iran has said it is ready to negotiate on signing the so-called Additional Protocol that would allow snap inspections of its nuclear facilities. The United States says those facilities are part of a nuclear weapons programme. Iran strongly denies the charge. The UN watchdog, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), has said in a confidential report that Iran had improved co-operation. But it felt there were still questions about weapons-grade uranium found at a site in Iran. Iranian foreign ministry spokesman Hamid Reza Asefi said: Some countries are about to exert pressure and the agency (IAEA) should not let it happen. If the other side shows goodwill and if the other side has honesty, I dont think it is an issue that cannot be solved. He said Iran had already shown ...

Climate change. Its not just Greta Thunberg whos unhappy with the global response to climate change-its at least 86 percent of young Americans, and most of us understand that human activities are to blame. To mitigate the effects of climate change, there has to be more money invested in carbon-friendly energy. It doesnt have to be nuclear energy (although Russian colleagues and I argued in 2020 that nuclear is among the safer energy sources). Funds freed up from the ICBM modernization program could go to research and development for advanced reactor designs; and construction of more wind turbines, solar panels, and hydroelectric stations.. Nuclear safeguards. The international community relies on the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) to ensure that nuclear technology remains in peaceful uses. The IAEA applied nuclear safeguards in 183 countries in 2020, and it did so to the tune of 148.7 million euros (approximately $177 million). This budget includes verification activities under ...
Since 2007, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) - with the support of the United States, Israel and European allies UK, France and Germany - has been demanding that Iran explain a set of purported internal documents portraying a covert Iranian military program of research and development of nuclear weapons. The laptop documents, supposedly obtained from a stolen Iranian computer by an unknown source and given to US intelligence in 2004, include a series of drawings of a missile re-entry vehicle that appears to be an effort to accommodate a nuclear weapon, as well as reports on high explosives testing for what appeared to be a detonator for a nuclear weapon.. In one report after another, the IAEA has suggested that Iran has failed to cooperate with its inquiry into that alleged research, and that the agency, therefore, cannot verify that it has not diverted nuclear material to military purposes.. That issue remains central to US policy toward Iran. The Obama administration says there ...
The UN nuclear watchdog said it made no progress in talks with Iran to seal a deal on resuming a long-stalled investigation into suspected atom bomb research by the Islamic state and it called the outcome disappointing. The meetings failure - a few weeks after the UN nuclear chief said he had won assurances by Tehran that an agreement would be struck - may dim prospects for success in broader negotiations between Iran and major powers later this month. Herman Nackaerts, global head of inspections for the International Atomic Energy Agency, said after the eight-hour meeting at IAEA headquarters in Vienna that no date for further discussions on the matter had been set. The IAEA had been pressing Tehran for an accord that would give its inspectors immediate access to the Parchin military complex, where it believes explosives tests relevant for the development of nuclear arms have taken place and suspects Iran may now be cleaning the site of any incriminating evidence. The United States, European ...

Actuality: Iran announced Monday a week ago to the International Atomic Energy Agency that it had begun work on a second, civilian nuclear enrichment facility near Qom. There are no nuclear materials at the site and it has not gone hot, so technically Iran is not in violation of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, though it did break its word to the IAEA that it would immediately inform the UN of any work on a new facility. Iran has pledged to allow the site to be inspected regularly by the IAEA, and if it honors the pledge, as it largely has at the Natanz plant, then Iran cannot produce nuclear weapons at the site, since that would be detected by the inspectors. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton admitted on Sunday that Iran could not produce nuclear weapons at Natanz precisely because it is being inspected. Yet American hawks have repeatedly demanded a strike on Natanz ...

Medical imaging technologies and techniques continue to evolve rapidly and while providing unprecedented visibility into the body, their use mean exposure of patients to ionizing radiation. This is an area requiring attention in Canada.. To address the need for a national strategy and action plan relating to radiation safety for medical imaging care in Canada, a coalition of key stakeholders is being formed, called Canada Safe Imaging. Canada Safe Imaging will be formally launched in the months ahead with invitations to participate to include agencies, professional associations, universities, colleges, national research institutions and hospitals.. One impetus for this new Canadian initiative was to align with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and the World Health Organization (WHO) initiative, supported by 77 countries and 16 organizations, titled the Bonn Call-for-Action, which outlines 10 major strategies for promoting radiation protection.. The delivery of health care is a ...

Dozens of laboratories in Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin America and the Caribbean will receive diagnostic machines and kits, reagents and laboratory consumables to speed up national testing, which is crucial in containing the outbreak. They will also receive biosafety supplies, such as personal protection equipment and laboratory cabinets for the safe analysis of collected samples. Further deliveries of equipment to the ...
It is arresting to watch an Israeli premier accuse European and other countries (like Australia) that do nothing about these Iranian nuclear activities of Appeasement. Appeasement is the word that denigrates the policy of the 1930s, whose defeatism gave rise to Germany and its aggression. Our Foreign Minister, Marise Payne did not seem to know of this new nuclear warehouse, she didnt even make a generic plea to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) to fore fill their responsibilities to conduct an inspection of all nuke sites. Netanyahu said that generally the IEEA were sincere but it is up to members of the international community, like Australia to urge them to keep to their mandate.. Marise Payne is one of the founders of the left faction of the NSW Liberals and can truly be described as a politician who rose without trace. It is disappointing that Australia said nothing about Irans support for organisations officially categorised by the Australian Parliament as terrorists; ...
The Joint Plan of Action marks the first time in nearly a decade that the Islamic Republic of Iran has agreed to specific actions that stop the advance of its nuclear program, roll back key aspects of the program, and include unprecedented access for international inspectors. The technical understandings set forth how the provisions of the Joint Plan of Action will be implemented and verified, and the timing of implementation of its provisions. Specifically, the technical understandings specify the actions that Iran will take to limit its enrichment capacity at Natanz and Fordow, as well as the limits on safeguarded research and development (R&D); the actions Iran will take to implement its commitments not to fuel the Arak reactor or install remaining components at the reactor; and the actions Iran will take to facilitate International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) verification and confirmation that Iran is fully implementing these commitments. The understandings also clarify the reciprocal ...

Israeli President Shimon Peres warned on Sunday that an Israeli attack on Iran is becoming increasingly likely. Peres comments comes just days before a highly anticipated report by the International Atomic Energy Agency on Irans nuclear program. According to the Washington Post, the report will claim Iran has mastered the critical steps needed to build a nuclear weapon. The IAEA report is also expected to state that Iran has received crucial technical assistance from foreign weapon scientists from Russia, Pakistan and North Korea. Meanwhile, the Israeli newspaper Haaretz reports U.S. officials are increasingly concerned that Israel will not warn them before taking military action against Irans alleged nuclear facilities. One official said the United States is absolutely concerned that Israel is preparing an attack on Irans nuclear facilities. ...
ABSTRACT. Several countries are developing and deploying SFRs even after the accident at Tokyo Electric Power Companys Fukushima Dai-Ichi Nuclear Power Station. However, the Fukushima accident prompted all countries to redefine the fast reactor programs. The drastic safety enhancement is the most important issue to be established. In light of this situation, key essence of the safety improvement is reviewed in this paper by referring the achievements of the recent International Workshop on Prevention and Mitigation of Severe Accidents in SFRs which was held by Japan Atomic Energy Agency (JAEA) in cooperation with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) in June, 2012 and the findings published in the past journals including those of the International Conference on Fast Reactor and Related Fuel Cycles (FR09) held by IAEA in December, 2009.. 1. INTRODUCTION. Nuclear reactors have been developed since 1950s in various countries because they can deliver huge amounts of energy to both emerging ...

According to a report by the UNs International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), aging nuclear reactor closures are expected to peak between 2020 and 2030, posing major concerns for safety and potentially endangering the environment. The report, submitted to member states of the IAEA shortly before the nuclear crisis in Japan this month, stated that high safety performance levels in the global nuclear sector in 2010 were well maintained. But it warned, in some cases, plans for nuclear power program development moved faster than the establishment of the necessary regulatory and safety infrastructure and capacity. After the recent events at Japans Fukushima nuclear power plant, which was devastated by a massive earthquake and tsunami on March 11, the reports document -- titled Nuclear Safety Review for the Year 2010 -- may get more attention and more careful scrutiny. The IAEA was actively involved in the development of a robust and technically consistent framework for safety goals that broadly ...
Nuclear technology could be applied to improve soil quality, in the fight against cancer and to trace marine pollution.

This was announced in Noumea by the head of the agency Yukiya Amano and follows the formal signing of an agreement in Vienna last month.. Mr Amano said such technology was effective in a range of fields, such as health, agriculture or the environment.. The communitys deputy director Cameron Diver says given the development challenges facing the region, partnerships need to be reviewed and new scientific techniques added.. Mr Diver says nuclear technology could be applied to improve soil quality, in the fight against cancer and to trace marine pollution.. The announcement was made on the opening day of the Pacific Communitys biennial conference, which also ...
As the worlds fifth largest oil exporter and a state with abundant hydroelectric resources, it is unlikely that Venezuela will require nuclear power to meet its energy needs. Additionally, until recently, open source evidence had not suggested that Venezuela might be considering pursuing nuclear weapons. The country has only one nuclear facility, very minimal nuclear expertise, and is a member of the major nuclear nonproliferation agreements and regimes. [2] Caracas became a member of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) in August 1957, after purchasing a 3 MW research reactor from the U.S. General Electric Company in 1956. The reactor, which went critical in July 1960, was operated by the Instituto Venezolano de Investigaciones (IVIC) under IAEA safeguards, and was officially shut down in January 1994. [3] Reportedly, the reactor site is now used for food processing irradiation, medical sterilization and research. [4]. In February 1967, Venezuela signed the Tlatelolco Treaty, ...
Shinichi Ogawa and Michael Schiffer Ever since it was attacked with nuclear weapons six decades ago, Japan has been at the forefront of international nonproliferation efforts. Yet, as the world has focused recently on the dangers posed by some elements of the civilian nuclear power industry, Japan has found itself in the crosshairs of proliferation concerns.. The international community has focused particularly on Japans planned plutonium reprocessing facility in Rokkasho-mura, which is scheduled to begin operating as early as July 2006. It would be the first active, civilian reprocessing facility in a non-nuclear-weapon state. It would also be one of the first and largest of such facilities to come online since President George W. Bush and Mohamed ElBaradei, director-general of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), called for limits on the construction of new plutonium reprocessing or uranium-enrichment facilities. These facilities can be used to develop nuclear fuel for civilian ...

But as mlorrey commented, uranium is about as common as the element tin. Because of this abundance, uranium is cheap right now, and has been for some time. There has been no impetus to find new uranium deposits. According to the 2001 Analysis of Uranium Supply to 2050 released by the International Atomic Energy Agency in Vienna, the quantity of uranium in highest-confidence reserves is over 3.2 million tons [2]. According to a 2005 report by the World Nuclear Association, there are 3.5 million tons [3] of known recoverable uranium. If David Flemings assertion that no new major discoveries have taken place between the 80s and today is correct, then this number has remained nearly unchanged for the past twenty years. Twenty years ago, 3 million tons of uranium would have looked like thousands of years worth of energy. Why spend money finding more when you already have more than youd ever plan on using ...
The results of the research clearly show that plankton from the coast of Palomares, obtained from a depth of 50 metres, contains radioactive plutonium and americium with an activity up to five times higher than the average of the other samples studied. Thus, while average radioactivity in western Mediterranean plankton is around 452 units (millibequerels per kilogram of dried plankton), at Palomares this figure is 2,046 units. This is still within the safety margins recommended by the International Atomic Energy Agency, but serves as a reminder that the area is not free of residual contamination arising from the accident that occurred on 17 January 1966, when two US planes, a B-52 bomber, loaded with 4 nuclear warheads, and a refuelling plane collided in mid-flight ...

Howard et al. (1996) cloned a G protein-coupled receptor of the pituitary and hypothalamus of humans and swine and showed it to be the target of growth hormone secretagogues, a class of peptide and nonpeptide compounds leading to growth hormone (GH) release from the anterior pituitary. Nucleotide sequence analysis revealed two types of cDNAs apparently derived from the same gene, which the authors referred to as Ia and Ib. The human full-length type Ia cDNA encodes the predicted polypeptide of 366 amino acids with seven transmembrane domains and is the subject of this classification. Type Ib is predicted to encode a truncated polypeptide of 289 amino acids with only five transmembrane (1-5) domains. The function, if any, is not yet known. The GHS-R1a receptor belongs to Family A, i.e., the rhodopsin-like family of G protein-coupled receptors and signals via a Gq/11 α-subunit that results in the release of inositol triphosphate and Ca2+..

This paper investigates the validity of purchasing power parity (PPP) for 25 OECD countries by using a panel unit-root methodology. The procedure used here is to examine stationarity of real exchange rate. Using ADF unit-root test on single time-series, it is found that real exchange rate of all OECD countries have unit root. This outcome, however, might be due to the generally low power of this test. The aim of this paper is to reconsider this issue by exploiting the extra information provided by the combination of the time-series and cross-sectional data and the subsequent power advantages of panel data unit-root tests. We apply the test advocated by Im et al. [Im, K.S., Pesaran, M.H., Shin, Y., 1997. Testing for unit roots in heterogenous panels. University of Cambridge, Department of Applied Economics]. According to estimation results real exchange rate in OECD countries are stationary and support long-run purchasing power parity. (C) 2007 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved. ...

Japan Atomic Energy Agency (JAEA) has been implementing the Mizunami Underground Research Laboratory (MIU) Project for the R&D of geological disposal of High-level Radioactive Waste (HLW) in granite. The MIU Project has been divided into three overlapping phases: Surface-based Investigation Phase (Phase I), Construction Phase (Phase II), and Operation Phase (Phase III). In this paper, FEM analysis using crack tensor theory at the MIU was carried out in order to estimate deformation around the horizontal tunnel for investigations and construction during Phase III, and to confirm the validity of FEM analysis results including parameter settings using fracture information from the vertical borehole drilled during Phase I. The relationship between statistical observations on tunnel walls and pilot boreholes was used to estimate the crack tensor for the investigated area. FEM analysis in this work described the increase of stress in concrete liners due to decrease of Youngs Modulus compared to Phase ...

The high-temperature test reactor (HTTR) is a graphite-moderated gas-cooled research reactor in Oarai, Ibaraki, Japan operated by the Japan Atomic Energy Agency. It uses long hexagonal fuel assemblies, unlike the competing pebble bed reactor designs. HTTR first reached its full design power of 30 MW (thermal) in 1999. Other tests have shown that the core can reach temperatures sufficient for hydrogen production via the sulfur-iodine cycle. The primary coolant is helium gas at a pressure of about 4 MPa, the inlet temperature of 395 °C, and the outlet temperature of 850-950 °C. The fuel is uranium oxide (enriched to an average of about 6%). Very-high-temperature reactor Hydrogen economy HTTR at the JAEA website.

Mr. Speaker, I rise today in support of private members Bill C-252, calling for a domestic ban of anti-personnel land mines.. I have a particular interest in this issue, since last week at a conference of the North Atlantic Assembly I was elected Special Rapporteur to the Science and Technology Committee to report to the assembly on anti-personnel land mines with the objective of banning them. In the coming months I will be studying this issue very closely.. In recent years, due in part to the efforts of numerous international non-governmental organizations, as mentioned by the previous speaker, the issue of anti-personnel land mines has been brought to the forefront of international relations. We are becoming increasingly informed and aware of the destruction and havoc caused by such weapons all over the world.. These efforts have led to an international campaign to ban anti-personnel land mines, a movement in which I am proud to state Canada has taken a lead role.. In October of this year, ...

Downloadable! Prevalence of non-communicable diseases has increased in past decades in the OECD. These conditions have many risk factors, including poor quality diet, insufficient physical activity, and excess sedentarism. These behaviours are also at the root of overweight and obesity, which are themselves risk factors leading to non-communicable diseases. Using the most recent data available from individual-level national health surveys and health interviews, this paper paints a picture of the situation in terms of diet and physical activity in eleven OECD countries. Fruit and vegetable consumption remains low in all countries, as daily consumption of five fruit and vegetables per day rarely reaches 40%; diet quality can also be improved, although it is higher in some countries. Physical activity levels are more encouraging, with over 50% of the population reporting to reach the World Health Organization target in all countries, and excess sedentarism is high in two of the seven countries studied.
Downloadable (with restrictions)! Author(s): Stephen Machin & John Van Reenen. 1998 Abstract: This paper compares the changing skill structure of wage bills and employment in the United States with six other OECD countries (Denmark, France, Germany, Japan, Sweden, and the United Kingdom). We investigate whether a directly observed measure of technical change (R&D intensity) is closely linked to the growth in the importance of more highly skilled workers which has occurred in all countries. Evidence of a significant association between skill upgrading and R&D intensity is uncovered in all seven countries. These results provide evidence that skill-biased technical change is an international phenomenon that has had a clear effect of increasing the relative demand for skilled workers.
