OBJECTIVE: To assess the suitability of tolerance limit for aflatoxin M1 (AFM1) in foods and Chinese population dietary exposure to AFM1 from milk. METHODS: Milk and dairy products consumption data combined with the tolerance limit for AFM1 in foods as well as the concentration of AFM1 in milk were employed in assessment of both the intakes of AFM1 and the Chinese population long-time exposure to AFM1. AFM1 intake and the dietary exposure to projected risks for liver cancer attributable to either use of the maximum levels of AFM1 of 0...

Large animals in herds are susceptible to illnesses related to proximity as well as to the stress of captivity. Thanks to innovative veterinarians and pharmacists, pharmaceutical technology has entered a new phase in delivery systems for medications and vaccines to large animals. An advanced method of administering prescription drugs in a manner that has dramaticaly reduced the stress of those who administer the drugs, as well as the veterinary patients receiving the drugs, is the Biobullet, a ballistic bullet with a core of antibiotic...

The burden of migraine significantly impacts the individual sufferer, their families, the workplace, and society. The World Health Organization has identified migraine as an urgent public health priority and has initiated a global initiative to reduce the burden of migraine. Underlying the World Health Organization initiative is the need to discover means of optimizing migraine treatments and make them accessible to the broader portion of the world population. Development of acute migraine medications over the past several decades has largely centered on engineering highly specific receptor molecules that alter migraine pathophysiological mechanisms to abort or reverse the acute attack of migraine...

Occupational exposure to high levels of respirable quartz can result in respiratory and other diseases in humans. The Mine Safety and Health Adminstration (MSHA) regulates exposure to respirable quartz in coal mines indirectly through reductions in the respirable coal mine dust exposure limit based on the content of quartz in the airborne respirable dust. This reduction is implemented when the quartz content of airborne respirable dust exceeds 5% by weight. The intent of this dust standard reduction is to restrict miners' exposure to respirable quartz to a time-weighted average concentration of 100 μg/m(3)...

Marketing doesn't start and stop with a glossy brochure, a display ad in the local Yellow Pages or a Web site. Those are merely tactics that a medical group practice might use to position its physicians' services in the community. Marketing and planning support a medical group's mission and vision--and its strategic plan. The adminstrator must demonstrate this connection to physicians and educate them about what marketing really is.

The high incidence of age-related diseases in the increasing population of elderly people has stimulated interest in the search for protective agents that have the capability of preventing premature aging and delaying the onset of degenerative disorders. To preserve health in old age becomes a primary goal for biomedicine, because the increasing longevity in our societies is associated with a rise in morbidity. The difficulties in finding new approaches and safe strategies for prevention, intervention, and treatment are related to the lack of theoretical background as well as to insufficient models to test the efficacy of anti-aging agents...

This final rule eliminates all requirements and references regarding the Cardiac Pacemaker Registry (the Registry) in our regulations. It conforms to the Food and Drug Adminstration's (FDA) recent final rule that required any physician and any provider of services who requests or receives Medicare payment for the implantation, removal, or replacement of permanent cardiac pacemaker devices and pacemaker leads to submit certain information to the Registry. We used the information to administer Medicare payment for these devices...

In an era in which mental hospital administrators are confronted by shrinking budgets and cost containment strategies in order to survive, the recently enacted Americans with Disabilities Act requires their special attention. This article addresses the anticipated effect of the ADA upon inpatient psychiatric facilities. We assume that adminstrators should anticipate increased ligation and settlement costs associated with specialized services to deaf and other qualifying patients who seek equal access to psychiatric services provided in mental hospitals...

During the past decade one important change that has occurred in medical education has been the development of multidisciplinary research, education, and treatment efforts by new groups of scholars drawn from multiple disciplines. In their daily activities members of such groups have more in common with their new affinity group than with their traditional discipline. Yet important adminstrative functions such as appointment, assignment of space, and allocation of budget are conducted by separate administrative units...

The development of community psychiatry as a recognized subspecialty of psychiatry and the concomitant growth of community mental health programs have once again brought into focus the role of the psychiatrist-administrator in the practice of public psychiatry. This paper explores the principal conflicts that the psychiatrist-administrator faces in his multiple roles as a physician, psychiatrist, administrator, community services planner, and clinician. Unless he can work toward a resolution of the conflicts and problems that arise, he is in danger of becoming the "odd man out"--the psychiatrist-adminstrator who does not have complete acceptance from any of the groups to which he belongs and within which he is trying to define his combined and complex role...

In 1973, a small-scale project to involve family planning staff in program management was introduced in the Sangam primary health center in Andhra Pradesh by the Adminstrative Staff College of India, Hyderabad. Through group meetings, involving all levels of health center personnel, problem areas were identified and analysed and solutions sought. On the basis of recommendations made by the groups, a work plan was drawn up. Monthly review meetings were held to discuss progress in implementing the plan. The project was found to have a positive effect on staff morale and commitment, and program acceptance levels increased...

Two mental health catchment areas in Massachusetts that were in the process of phasing down state hospitals and building up community care provided an opportunity for studying the effectiveness of an integrated service delivery model and a nonintegrated model. The area that integrated state hospital and community services was more successful in the phase-down. It had a lower admission rate, the patients who were readmitted did not stay as long, and patients discharged spent more time in the community. Specific adminstrative and clinical structures that facilitated the patients' progress included investing community-based, administrative authority in one person; having a centralized intake and referral system; and using case managers to follow the clients through the service delivery system...
