What are you reading? That's the question Will Schwalbe asks his mother, Mary Anne, as they sit in the waiting room of the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center. In 2007, Mary Anne returned from a humanitarian trip to Pakistan and Afghanistan suffering from what her doctors believed was a rare type of hepatitis. Months later she was diagnosed with a form of advanced pancreatic cancer, which is almost always fatal, often in six months or less. This is the inspiring true story of a son and his mother, who start a "book club" that brings them together as her life comes to a close. Over the next two years, Will and Mary Anne carry on conversations that are both wide-ranging and deeply personal, prompted by an eclectic array of books and a shared passion for reading. Their list jumps from classic to popular, from poetry to mysteries, from fantastic to spiritual. The issues they discuss include questions of faith and courage as well as everyday topics such as expressing gratitude and learning to listen. Throughout, they are constantly reminded of the power of books to comfort us, astonish us, teach us, and tell us what we need to do with our lives and in the world. Reading isn't the opposite of doing; it's the opposite of dying. Will and Mary Anne share their hopes and concerns with each other - and rediscover their lives - through their favorite books. When they read, they aren't a sick person and a well person, but a mother and a son taking a journey together. The result is a profoundly moving tale of loss that is also a joyful, and often humorous, celebration of life: Will's love letter to his mother, and theirs to the printed page. 1. Language: English.

A real jewel of science history...brims with suspense and now-forgotten catastrophe and intrigue.... Wadman’s smooth prose calmly spins a surpassingly complicated story into a real tour de force. (The New York Times)“Riveting...[The Vaccine Race] invites comparison with Rebecca Skloot's 2007 The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks.” (Nature) The epic and controversial story of a major breakthrough in cell biology that led to the conquest of rubella and other devastating diseases. Until the late 1960s, tens of thousands of American children suffered crippling birth defects if their mothers had been exposed to rubella, popularly known as German measles, while pregnant; there was no vaccine and little understanding of how the disease devastated fetuses. In June 1962, a young biologist in Philadelphia, using tissue extracted from an aborted fetus from Sweden, produced safe, clean cells that allowed the creation of vaccines against rubella and other common childhood diseases. Two years later, in the midst of a devastating German measles epidemic, his colleague developed the vaccine that would one day wipe out homegrown rubella. The rubella vaccine and others made with those fetal cells have protected more than 150 million people in the United States, the vast majority of them preschoolers. The new cells and the method of making them also led to vaccines that have protected billions of people around the world from polio, rabies, chicken pox, measles, hepatitis A, shingles and adenovirus. Meredith Wadman's masterful account recovers not only the science of this urgent race, but also the political roadblocks that nearly stopped the scientists. She describes the terrible dilemmas of pregnant women exposed to German measles and recounts testing on infants, prisoners, orphans, and the intellectually disabled, which was common in the era. These events take place at the dawn of the battle over using human fetal tissue 1. Language: English. Narrator: Nancy Linari.

Chronic Hepatitis: Metabolic Cholestatic Viral and Autoimmune ab 213.99 EURO Auflage 2007
Hepatitis C virus (HCV) has been identified as a causative agent for the majority of parenterally transmitted non-A, non-B hepatitis(Kazuaki Takahashi et al,1992) .The hepatitis C virus (HCV) is a prevalent infectious disease(Xie Li et al,2007). Hepatitis C virus (HCV) is the most common chronic blood born infection in,and is involved in 40% of chronic liver disease. HCV was initially isolated from the serum of a person with non-A, non-B hepatitis in 1989 by Choo et al. This newly found virus was discovered to be the cause of approximately 90% of non-A, non-B hepatitis. Hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection afflicts more than 170-200 million people worldwide, with the great majority of patients with acute hepatitis C developing chronic HCV infection. It can ultimately result in liver cirrhosis, hepatic failure or hepatocellular carcinoma, which are responsible for hundreds of thousands of deaths each year (Stéphane Chevaliez et al). Chronic hepatitis C is the most common cause of chronic liver disease and cirrhosis, and the most common indication for liver transplantation in the United States (U.S.), Australia, and most of Europe.
In its 2006 report, WHO showed that in Tanzania, about 126 children in every 1000 children of under five years old die before reaching their fifth birthday. Also, UNICEF (2007) found that at list 150 children die each day as a result of preventable and curable diseases. Therefore, the study was conducted so as to investigate the association between immunization status (including hepatitis B and Haemophilus influenza) and survival of children of under five years in rural areas around Dodoma Municipality. Findings shows, immunization coverage rates were high for the first vaccine doses and declined subsequently, suggesting that mothers were less likely to ensure that children were fully immunized. Factors associated with children s immunization status were marital status, maternal age and place of residence.
