    THE NEW YORK TIMES NUMBER ONE BESTSELLER

    SHORTLISTED FOR THE WELLCOME BOOK PRIZE 2017

    ‘Dramatic and precise… [A] thrilling and comprehensive account of what seems certain to be the most radical, controversial and, to borrow from the subtitle, intimate science of our time… He is a natural storyteller… A page-turner… Read this book and steel yourself for what comes next’
    Bryan Appleyard, Sunday Times

    The Gene is the story of one of the most powerful and dangerous ideas in our history, from bestselling, prize-winning author Siddhartha Mukherjee.

    Spanning the globe and several centuries, The Gene is the story of the quest to decipher the master-code that makes and defines humans, that governs our form and function.

    This is an epic, moving history of a scientific idea coming to life, by the author of The Emperor of All Maladies. But woven through The Gene, like a red line, is also an intimate history – the story of Mukherjee’s own family and its recurring pattern of mental illness, reminding us that genetics is vitally relevant to everyday lives. These concerns reverberate even more urgently today as we learn to “read” and “write” the human genome – unleashing the potential to change the fates and identities of our children.

    The story of the gene begins in an obscure Augustinian abbey in Moravia in 1856 where a monk stumbles on the idea of a ‘unit of heredity’. It intersects with Darwin’s theory of evolution, and collides with the horrors of Nazi eugenics in the 1940s. The gene transforms post-war biology. It reorganizes our understanding of sexuality, temperament, choice and free will. This is a story driven by human ingenuity and obsessive minds – from Charles Darwin and Gregor Mendel to Francis Crick, James Watson and Rosalind Franklin, and the thousands of scientists still working to understand the code of codes.

    Majestic in its ambition, and unflinching in its honesty, The Gene gives us a definitive account of the fundamental unit of heredity – and a vision of both humanity’s past and future.

    With so many medical tests and treatments and so much scientific and medical information – some of it contradictory – how can people make the best medical decisions? Most medical decisions, it turns out, are based on common sense. In this short and easy-to-read book, Dr. Phillip K. Peterson explains the ten rules of internal medicine. Using real case examples he shows how following the rules will help consumers make good decisions about their medical care. "Get Inside Your Doctor's Head" providesadvice about such questions as when to seek treatment, when to get another opinion, and when to let time take its course. Turn to the Ten Rules when you are weighing your doctor's recommendations about diagnostic tests and treatments and use them to communicate more effectively with your doctor. As with all rules, the Ten Rules of Internal Medicine have occasional exceptions – and when evidence suggests that you are an exception, the relevant rule should be broken. Follow the Ten Rules to make decisions in the increasingly complicated medical world when you need guidance about health matters for yourself and your loved ones.

    There are occasions when a story told from a personal viewpoint can illuminate a profession. Alfred Sommer's epidemiological memoir is such a book. Adventurous, illuminating, and thought provoking, "Ten Lessons in Public Health" is more than the story of one man's work. It tells the tale of how epidemiology grew into global health. The book is organized around ten lessons Sommer learned as his career took him around the world, and within these lessons he explains how the modern era of public health research was born. Three themes emerge from Sommer's story: the duty to help your fellow human beings by traveling to places where there are problems; the knowledge that data-driven research is the key to improving public health; and the need to persevere with sensitivity and strength when science and cultural or sociological forces clash. Nothing in this compelling, sometimes controversial, history is glossed over, as the book's goal is to explain when and why public health efforts triumph or fail. Readers will travel to Bangladesh, Iran, Indonesia, South America, and the Caribbean, where they will learn about spreading epidemics, the aftermath of storms, and vexing epidemiological problems. Sommer reveals the inner politics of world health decisions and how difficult it can be to garner support for new solutions. Triumph, tragedy, frustration, and elation await those who set off on careers in public health, and "Ten Lessons in Public Health" is destined to become a classic book that puts the field into perspective.

    We have all experienced itch, whether from insect bites or dry skin, but millions of people worldwide have chronic or even intractable itch. Just like chronic pain, chronic itch interferes with function – even with quality of life.

Kwatra explain what itch is and the cascade of physiological events that cause us to experience it. They describe the many skin diseases, from atopic dermatitis (also known as eczema) to psoriasis, and conditions like chronic kidney disease, lymphoma, HIV, and neuropathies that cause itch. "Living with Itch" provides information on preventing itch as well as topical and systemic therapies, regardless of what's causing the itch. Patient and parent narratives explain how itch affects their lives and how they cope with a symptom that can, with medical and social support, be managed.

    Am pornit la drum cu dorinta de a aduce un instrument de lucru care, tinand cont de situatia actuala din Romania, sa delimiteze testarile cu adevarat necesare de cele facultative sau complet inutile. Un alt rol al sau este facilitarea obtinerii unei solutii cat mai rapide si corecte in dilema: este sau nu permis in timpul sarcinii acest antibiotic? Dar acest vaccin?

    De ce o asemenea initiativa? Pentru ca nu suntem un popor al regulilor si al masurii in ceea ce facem asa ca avem in acelasi timp:

    gravide ce ajung sa nasca fara sa stie din timp ca sunt infectate cu VHB sau cu HIV astfel incat sa se poata da o sansa in plus sanatatii copiilor lor, dar si gravide suprainvestigate incat rezultatele testelor sunt contradictorii sau imposibil de interpretat

    medici care recomanda gravidelor fara indicatie serologie de Listeria sau alte teste inutile, dar si medici care nu recomanda nicio testare

    gravide care repeta de mai multe ori aceleasi teste intr-un interval de timp de cateva saptamani si ajung de multe ori sa nu mai creada in rezultatele acestora si sa actioneze la intamplare 

    medici care induc gravidei decizia de intrerupere a sarcinii pe baza unei interpretari fanteziste a rezultatelor testarilor recomandate de ei, dar si medici care neglijeaza sa transmita interpretarea acestor rezultate gravidei si sa ii faca recomandarile necesare.

    Pe parcursul elaborarii acestui ghid am realizat tot mai mult ca avem un bun prilej de a incerca sa facem din el si un instrument de lucru impotriva utilizarii excesive si/sau eronate de antibiotice in infectiile caracteristice si in cele frecvente la gravida/lauza.

    Lasand continutul ghidului sa indeplineasca rolul de instrument de lucru ne-am permis sa evidentiem unele obstacole in calea im­plementarii unei atitudini coerente in acest domeniu medical, sub forma de raspunsuri la cateva intrebari.

     Cand testam?

    Suntem inca una dintre acele state ale Uniunii Europene in care primul bilant al unei gravide se mai efectueaza cand travaliul s-a declansat. Despre planning si evaluare preconceptionala vorbim inca rar, iar sarcina este adesea privita drept o intamplare, un dar sau o problema; din pacate, si generalizarea evaluarii initiale a gravidei in primul trimestru ramane un deziderat de atins in anii ce vin.

     Cine recomanda testarile? Cine prescrie antibiotice, care anume si in ce situatii?

    La aceasta intrebare un raspuns unic este hazardat: ginecologul? Medicul de familie? Infectionistul? De fapt, raspunsul nu ar mai avea nicio relevanta daca ar exista un consens in privinta a ceea ce este necesar sa fie testat. Este insa evident ca actualul circuit, in care pe fluxul medic de familie – ginecolog – infectionist, de la ultima veriga se poate decide reluarea ciclului pentru testari omise la pasii anteriori sau se ajunge la inlocuirea/intreruperea administrarii unui antibiotic prescris gravidei in mod eronat/excesiv, este nefunctional. 

     

    Ce se testeaza?

    in domeniul patologiei infectioase se aplica insa foarte bine regula lui „aici si acum“; de aceea, si testarile pentru infectiile cu potentiala transmitere maternofetala au un continut specific situatiei din fiecare regiune. A recomanda anumite teste „dupa ureche“ si a trimite apoi gravida cu rezultatele la interpretare „la un infectionist“ poate expune la cateva riscuri:

    pune in dificultate infectionistul in a furniza interpretari unor testari inutile sau fara semnificatie pentru situatia actuala a sarcinii

    expune medicul ginecolog riscului de scadere a credibilitatii in fata gravidei daca infectionistul se vede nevoit sa prescrie teste omise in bilantul initial

     Cine deconteaza testarile?

    Nu toata raspunderea in privinta derapajelor acestor testari apartine lipsei de educatie a gravidei in acest domeniu si/sau deficientelor profesionale ale medicului sau curant. De multe ori am intalnit gravide care aveau o lista de teste recomandate si neefectuate; cel mai adesea iti spun – „nu am avut bani ca sa fac aceste analize“.  Daca ne referim doar la testele cu adevarat utile, majoritatea sunt asigurate in mod gratuit pentru toate gravidele din Romania, dar unele nu. De aici se desprind cel putin doua idei:

    - necesitatea de a sustine efectuarea gratuita a tuturor acelor teste cu adevarat necesare, beneficiul medical si cel economic fiind cert;

    - necesitatea limitarii recomandarilor la testarile justificate, fara a incarca lista de analize cu alte teste inutile dar care costa, ceea ce va determina uneori ca gravida sa renunte la efectuarea oricarui test

    Înainte de a învăța electrocardiogramă trebuie bine înțeles ce așteptăm de la ea; de cele mai multe ori electrocardiograma nu este diagnosticul ci o treaptă spre diagnostic, dar o treaptă ușor de pășit dacă știi să calci. Există evident excepții în ambele sensuri: uneori electrocardiograma este diagnosticul (preexcitația, aritmia etc.), iar alteori nu te ajută cu nimic (de cele mai multe ori dacă încerci să găsești în electrocardiogramă ceea ce nu poate da). Ar fi o eroare să considerați electrocardiograma normală (cel mai dificil traseu pentru studenții la examen) în această categorie; o electrocardiogramă normală spune foarte multe! Și mai rău ar fi dacă, posedând un aparat electrocardiografic cu diagnostic computerizat, v-ați baza pe diagnosticul calculatorului; am consumat în timp mai multă energie corectând diagnosticele calculatorului decât cea consumată pentru analiza “manuala” a traseului.

    Electrocardiograma este o reprezentare grafică a unui fenomen care se descrie vectorial și care pornește de la câteva axiome (datorate marelui Einthoven); majoritatea acestor axiome au fost fizic infirmate sau modificate în timp. Morala acestei constatări este că valoarea electrocardiogramei stă în comparație (fie că ne referim la traseele anterioare ale pacientului, fie ale altor pacienți cu aceeași condiție sau în lipsa lor, cu mai mică valoare, la modelul învățat despre cum trebuie să arate electrocardiograma în condiția dată). Obișnuiesc să recomand studenților mei să abordeze un traseu electrocardiografic în două etape: întâi să privească ca la un tablou și să-și facă o impresie generală, intuitivă, apoi să o uite pentru moment și să reevalueze sistematic traseul (ritmul atrial, conducerea atrioventriculară, depo- larizarea ventriculară, faza de repolarizare etc.) considerând mereu derivațiile sincrone împreună pentru a-și crea o imagine spațială. La cei pe care mi i-am apropiat și au avut răbdare cu mine (și reciproc) lucrurile au funcționat. Iar această metodologie trebuie aplicată indiferent că traseul pare simplu sau dificil. De altfel această terminologie este foarte subiectivă și ține mai mult de interpret decât de traseu. Nu o dată mi s-a cerut să prezint doar trasee „foarte interesante” (citește complicate) și am avut surpriza să constat cât de bine se descurcă unii la probleme delicate și cum se poticnesc la cele simple. Orice traseu electrocardiografic, cât de simplu, poate fi informativ pentru situația pacientului și valoros pentru învățare.

    De la premisa că orice traseu electrocardiografic, cât de simplu, poate fi informativ pentru situația pacientului și valoros pentru învățare, ne-am hotărât să prezentăm celor dornici de a-și schimba condiția, trasee din colecția noastră, așa cum se înregistrează ele în viața reală, mai mult sau mai puțin “perfecte”, mai mult sau mai puțin complicate. Intenția noastră este să alcătuim câteva volume separate. Acest prim volum conține un număr de electrocardiograme simple și câteva mai complicate, comentate succint. De la început trebuie să fie clar că această publicație nu se vrea, în nici un caz un manual de învățare de electrocardiograme ci doar o culegere de “exerciții pentru acasă” așa cum, demult, fiecare dintre noi o făcea la matematică. El este destinat oricui crede că intenția noastră ii folosește, fie el student, rezident, tânăr sau experimentat medic...

    In 1962, Leonard Hayflick created and then froze roughly 800 tiny ampules of what he dubbed WI-38 cells. Each petite glass vial contained between 1.5 million and 2 million cells. Each cell in each vial, once thawed, had the capacity to divide another 40 times. Hayflick had created a supply of cells that, for practical purposes, was almost infinite.
    Hayflick’s WI-38 cells would become the first normal, non-cancerous cells available in virtually unlimited quantities to scientists, and, as a result, the best-characterized normal cells available to this day. They would become the basis for vaccines that have immunized hundreds of millions of people worldwide against polio, rubella, rabies, chicken pox, and measles. Today approximately two billion people have directly benefitted from the use of WI-38 and other cell strains created using Hayflick’s methods.WI-38 would also spawn a lifetime feud between Hayflick and his superiors at the Wistar, and an epochal fight with the US government, first over whether the cells were safe to use to make vaccines and then over who owned them.
    The Cells and the Scientist combines scientific discovery, rivalry, greed and drama; abortion and vaccine politics; and timely questions about the tradeoff between socially beneficial medical research and the rights of individuals. Remarkably, both Leonard Hayflick and the 83-year-old mother of the fetus that gave rise to WI-38 are still alive. The mother lives near Stockholm. She was not asked permission for the use of her fetus and has never earned a penny from the contribution.
    The tale of WI-38 is a profoundly human one, laced with real effects on untold numbers of lives. Consider this irony: cells derived from an aborted fetus have prevented tens of millions of miscarriages that otherwise would have been caused by the rubella virus, which infects foetuses in the womb.

    For thousands of years the human heart remained the deepest of mysteries; both home to the soul and an organ too complex to touch, let alone operate on.

    Then, in the late nineteenth century, medics began going where no one had dared go before. The following decades saw the mysteries of the heart exposed, thanks to pioneering surgeons, brave patients and even sacrificial dogs.

    In 11 landmark operations, Thomas Morris tells us stories of triumph, reckless bravery, swaggering arrogance, jealousy and rivalry, and incredible ingenuity: the trail-blazing ‘blue baby’ procedure that transformed wheezing infants into pink, healthy children; the first human heart transplant, which made headline news around the globe. And yet the heart still feels sacred: just before the operation to fit one of the first artificial hearts, the patient’s wife asked the surgeon if he would still be able to love her.

    The Matter of the Heart gives us a view over the surgeon’s shoulder, showing us the heart’s inner workings and failings. It describes both a human story and a history of risk-taking that has ultimately saved millions of lives.

    Almost daily we hear news stories, advertisements, and scientific reports that promise genetic medicine will make us live longer, enable doctors to identify and treat diseases before they start, and individualize our medical care. But surprisingly, a century ago eugenicists were making the same promises. The "Science of Human Perfection" traces the history of the promises of medical genetics and of the medical dimension of eugenics. The book also considers social and ethical issues that cast troublesome shadows over these fields. Keeping his focus on America, science historian Nathaniel Comfort introduces the community of scientists, physicians, and public health workers who have contributed to the development of medical genetics from the nineteenth century to today. He argues that medical genetics is closely related to eugenics, and indeed the two cannot be fully understood separately. He also carefully examines how the desire to relieve suffering and to improve ourselves genetically, though noble, may be subverted. History makes clear that as patients and consumers we must take ownership of genetic medicine, using it intelligently, knowledgeably, and sceptically, lest pernicious interests trump our own.

    In this sweeping exploration of the relatively recent obesity epidemic, Michael L. Power and Jay Schulkin probe evolutionary biology, history, physiology, and medical science to uncover the causes of our growing girth. The unexpected answer? Our own evolutionary success. For most of the past few million years, our evolutionary ancestors' survival depended on being able to consume as much as possible when food was available and to store the excess energy for periods when it was scarce. In the developed world today, high-calorie foods are readily obtainable, yet the propensity to store fat is part of our species' heritage, leaving an increasing number of the world's people vulnerable to obesity. In an environment of abundant food, we are anatomically, physiologically, metabolically, and behaviorally programmed in a way that makes it difficult for us to avoid gaining weight. Power and Schulkin's engagingly argued book draws on popular examples and sound science to explain our expanding waistlines and to discuss the consequences of being overweight for different demographic groups. They review the various studies of human and animal fat use and storage, including those that examine fat deposition and metabolism in men and women; chronicle cultural differences in food procurement, preparation, and consumption; and consider the influence of sedentary occupations and lifestyles. A compelling and comprehensive examination of the causes and consequences of the obesity epidemic, "The Evolution of Obesity" offers fascinating insights into the question, Why are we getting fatter?

    PKU (phenylketonuria) is a genetic disorder that causes severe cognitive impairment if it is not detected and treated with a strict and difficult diet. In a lifetime of practice, most physicians will never encounter a single case of PKU, yet every physician in the industrialized world learns about the disease in medical school and, since the early 1960s, the newborn heel stick test for PKU has been mandatory in many countries. Diane B. Paul and Jeffrey P. Brosco's beautifully written book explains this paradox. The development of state programs for early detection of and treatment for PKU is deservedly considered a great public health success story. Advocates have traded on this success to urge expanded newborn screening, to defend basic research in genetics, and to confront proponents of genetic determinism. When deployed for these purposes, treatment for PKU is typically represented as a simple matter of adhering to a low-phenylalanine diet. In reality, the challenges of living with PKU are daunting. In this first general history of PKU, a historian and a pediatrician explore how a rare genetic disease became the object of an unprecedented system for routine testing. "The PKU Paradox" is informed by interviews with scientists, clinicians, policy makers, and individuals who live with the disease. The questions it raises touch on ongoing controversies about newborn screening and what happens to blood samples collected at birth.

    In "The Story Within", authors share powerful experiences of living with genetic disorders. Their stories illustrate the complexities involved in making decisions about genetic diseases: whether to be tested, who to tell, whether to have children, and whether and how to treat children medically, if treatment is available. More broadly, they consider how genetic information shapes the ways we see ourselves, the world, and our actions within it. People affected by genetic disease respond to such choices in varied and personal ways. These writers reflect that breadth of response, yet they share the desire to challenge a restricted sense of what "health" is or whose life has value. They write hoping to expand conversations about genetics and identity – to deepen debate and generate questions. Whether they or their families are affected by Huntington's disease, Alzheimer's disease, cancer, genetic deafness or blindness, schizophrenia, cystic fibrosis, Tay-Sachs, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, fragile X, or Fanconi anemia, their stories remind us that genetic health is complicated, dynamic, and above all, deeply personal.

    The surgeon Thomas Pettigrew (1791–1865) was interested in all aspects of antiquity. He gained fame in society through his mummy-unwrapping parties, and his History of Egyptian Mummies is also reissued in the Cambridge Library Collection. His interest in the early history of medicine is evidenced by this edition of a work by John Hall, which was published by the Percy Society in 1844. Hall was a surgeon, born 1529/30, who published this work in 1565 as an appendix to his translation of the work of the thirteenth-century surgeon Lanfranc of Milan. Little is known about Hall except that he practised medicine in Maidstone, Kent, and had published acrostic verses. He was vociferous in his indignation against fraudulent medicine, and this work describes nine incidents where quacks, both male and female, had visited Maidstone and offered miraculous cures to the gullible: Hall himself was involved in prosecuting some of them.

    The Quaker philanthropist Samuel Tuke (1784–1857) was the grandson of William Tuke, the founder in 1796 of the Retreat at York, a pioneering asylum for the insane which championed compassionate care and the abolition of physical restraints. Samuel succeeded his grandfather in the management of the Retreat in 1822, but before that was already active in promoting its principles of humane treatment, and publicising the appalling conditions in which 'pauper lunatics', whose families could not afford better care for them, were confined. The publicity generated by his pamphlets and letters to newspapers drew public attention to the problem, and led to a reforming Yorkshire magistrate inviting Tuke to advise on the building of a new asylum at Wakefield. This 1815 book of 'practical hints' was intended to guide the potential architects to offer both inmates and attendants an environment which promoted physical and mental health.

    In community after community, pro bono and student-run health clinics have sprung up over the past 30 years, providing critically needed care to medically underserved populations. "Free Clinics" is a mosaic formed by accounts of such clinics around the United States. These wide-ranging narratives � from urban to rural, from primary care to behavioral health care � provide examples that will assist other communities seeking to find the model that best fits their needs. The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act has improved access to health care for many Americans, but millions remain and will remain uninsured or underinsured. Free clinics provide non-emergency care to those in need. Nationwide, professionals can be found offering volunteer services at these clinics. Contributors to this volume � typically people with personal familiarity (as clinicians or area residents) with the clinics they write about � cover a variety of topics, including a review of the literature, data-driven accounts of clinic usage, and ethical guidelines for student-run clinics. They describe the motivations of clinic staff, the day-to-day work of a family nurse practitioner working in clinics and teaching at a university, the challenges and rewards of providing health care for homeless people, and more. Student-run clinics are the topic of the second section: in addition to providing care to a small subset of those in need, student-run clinics are an important venue for training future clinicians and helping the seeds of altruism with which many enter their professions to germinate. "Free Clinics" will be useful to policymakers, students and faculty in public health and health policy programs, and clinicians and students who are embarking on launching new clinics.

    Still the leading cause of death worldwide, heart disease challenges researchers, clinicians, and patients alike. Each day, thousands of patients and their doctors make decisions about coronary angioplasty and bypass surgery. In "Broken Hearts" David S. Jones sheds light on the nature and quality of those decisions. He describes the debates over what causes heart attacks and the efforts to understand such unforeseen complications of cardiac surgery as depression, mental fog, and stroke. Why do doctors and patients overestimate the effectiveness and underestimate the dangers of medical interventions, especially when doing so may lead to the overuse of medical therapies? To answer this question, Jones explores the history of cardiology and cardiac surgery in the United States and probes the ambiguities and inconsistencies in medical decision making. Based on extensive reviews of medical literature and archives, this historical perspective on medical decision making and risk highlights personal, professional, and community outcomes.

    Product description

    Review

     

    "Practicing Psychodynamic Therapy is an excellent complement to Summers and Barber's earlier evidence-based guide, Psychodynamic Therapy. The psychodynamically formulated case studies are fascinating, and beautifully demonstrate the struggles and learning curve of novice therapists, describing in a refreshingly honest way their successful--and less-than-successful--interventions with patients who suffer from obsessionality, depression, trauma, and more. The down-to-earth and clear exposition of both theory and clinical cases makes this an exceptionally valuable book for beginning therapists, as well as undergraduate and graduate students being exposed to psychodynamic concepts and practice for the first time. This volume convincingly dispels any myths about the relevance of psychodynamic therapy for the practice of psychotherapy today."--Stanley B. Messer, PhD, Graduate School of Applied and Professional Psychology, Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey

    "This compelling, clearly written book addresses important questions for clinicians starting out in the world of mental health: What is psychodynamic psychotherapy? Why should a well-informed clinician learn it? How does it work? Jargon-free clinical cases--written by clinicians from varied training backgrounds who utilize a wide range of psychodynamic techniques--depict treatment with patients who suffer from panic disorder, major depression, combinations of depression and anxiety, and personality disorders. A 'must read' for clinicians of all orientations, this book will help to solidify psychodynamic therapy and techniques in the contemporary psychotherapeutic landscape."--Barbara Milrod, MD, Department of Psychiatry, Weill Cornell Medical College

    "Referencing the emerging body of research on the efficaciousness of psychodynamic theory, this volume is organized around 12 cases presented by early-career psychiatrists, psychologists, and social workers. The diverse cases bring to light the unique relationship between psychotherapist and client and offer an in-depth look at individual approaches taken within a psychodynamic framework. Each of six core psychodynamic problems identified by Summers and Barber is covered in the cases. With its evidence-based focus, carefully selected cases, and emphasis on creating a change-oriented therapeutic alliance, this casebook will be an invaluable resource for mental health professionals for years to come."--Aaron T. Beck, MD, University Professor Emeritus of Psychiatry, Perelman School of Medicine, University of Pennsylvania

    "This accessible clinical casebook illustrates how patients and therapists can work together to address and resolve the most common core problems encountered in therapeutic practice. Twelve refreshingly candid treatment narratives demonstrate specific techniques for working through these problems at different stages of therapy, offering useful strategies for catalyzing and assessing change. Both novice and experienced clinicians will find much of use in this book."--Diana Diamond, PhD, Doctoral Program in Clinical Psychology, City University of New York, and Senior Fellow, Personality Disorders Institute, Weill Medical College of Cornell University

    "Summers and Barber have gathered a series of eloquent and detailed cases that illustrate and enrich the approach elaborated in their earlier book, Psychodynamic Therapy: A Guide to Evidence-Based Practice. In this casebook, contributing authors openly share their clinical experience in a personal and candid fashion, offering a window into the very private relationships that develop between therapists and their patients. Indispensable for students of psychotherapy and their teachers, the book provides a rich opportunity for clinical learning and reflection."--Eve Caligor, MD, Department of Psychiatry, Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons

    "Therapists searching for psychodynamic concepts and techniques that will help them better conceptualize their patients' problems will benefit greatly from this book. The book begins with a summary of the authors' framework and then follows with 12 extensive case studies in which their model is carefully applied, assisting clinicians in identifying and working with each patient's core psychodynamic patterns. This is an outstanding, essential book for all dynamically oriented clinicians."--Walter N. Stone, MD, Department of Psychiatry (Emeritus), University of Cincinnati School of Medicine

    Comment faire simple en neurologie clinique des premières années de la vie ? Les agressions périnatales surviennent sur un cerveau en voie de développement rapide. L'expression neurologique de ces pathologies est donc changeante, en particulier dans le domaine neuromoteur, au cours des deux premières années. Il faut donc des repères précis pour aider le clinicien à identifier les déviations possibles à chaque étape du développement. Pour ce faire, nous avions proposé dans une première édition publiée en 1998 un instrument unique applicable de la naissance à 6 ans, avec un répertoire technique, des instructions pour le codage, des réponses selon l'âge et une grille d'évaluation. Après 10 ans d'utilisation de cet instrument en recherche clinique, le contenu de cette deuxième édition s'est enrichi: - les résultats obtenus ont permis, à l'âge corrigé de 2 ans, d'identifier le spectrum des anomalies neuromotrices allant de la paralysie cérébrale incapacitante (IMOC) aux signes plus mineurs ; - cette catégorisation a montré des corrélations significatives avec la fonction cérébrale évaluée tant à l'âge préscolaire qu'à l'âge scolaire. Les anomalies neurologiques, même mineures, servent de fil conducteur pour affirmer la nature organique de certains troubles de l'apprentissage. Cet instrument de dépistage permet la mise en place anticipée de stratégies d'intervention. Il se montre également de plus en plus utile dans l'évaluation des pratiques périnatales.

(His History of Egyptian Mummies is also reissued in the Cambridge Library Collection.) His interest in the early history of medicine is evidenced by this work, published in 1844, which describes the various forms of superstition which the science of medicine had always attracted since ancient times. Pettigrew considers alchemy and astrology, and the use of talismans, amulets and charms, as well as the history of Egyptian, Greek and Roman medicine, and some modern developments, including 'sympathetical cures' and the rejoining of severed fingers and ears. A chapter is devoted to the belief in the efficacy of the 'royal touch' against the King's Evil (scrofula), and another to the seventeenth-century faith healer Valentine Greatrakes, of whose alleged cures Pettigrew takes a robustly sceptical view.

    The physician and botanist William Woodville (1752–1805), a proponent of inoculation against smallpox, was in 1791 appointed physician to the London Smallpox and Inoculation Hospital. Five years later, Edward Jenner announced his experiments with vaccination - inoculation with the much milder cowpox, which conveyed immunity to smallpox without the attendant risk of catching the often fatal disease. Woodville eagerly pursued trials using vaccination, and published the results in this 1799 work, which describes two hundred cases where patients (usually children) were vaccinated with matter obtained from either cows or other cowpox sufferers, and supplies a table of the patterns of infection from person to person. Most of these patients were later tested by inoculation with smallpox, and none caught the disease. This demonstration of the safety and efficacy of vaccination led to its much wider adoption, to which Woodville gave practical support in both England and France.

The author provides an analysis of the scientific basis of public health policies that have influenced the public's, and the medical community's, abilities to understand the virus and the disease. This is done in the context of providing insights into the biology of the virus, and exploring open questions, including its likely modes of transmission. The author has included citations from the scientific literature and the press, as well as quotes from expert interviews. The book will help sort out the fact from fiction, given the confusion that arose after the virus arrived in the US. The author used his objective research skills and knowledge of evolutionary genetics and molecular biology to find out what was known, and what questions remained unanswered, and even what questions remained unasked.Written in an accessible style, it is intended for the educated general public, scientists, policy makers, health care workers, and politicians. It delves into the problems of trying to derive a logic-based understanding of a highly lethal emerging disease in 2014, when research funding cuts have gutted research institutions, and when public health institutions really were woefully unprepared. It is a highly distinct narrative analysis that is sure to stimulate new research and thinking in public policy. It will inform thousands of people of the nature of the virus, how it works, in terms they are likely to be able to understand. It will allow others to rapidly catch up with the story of Ebola.
