BACKGROUND: Women play important roles in translating health knowledge, particularly around pregnancy and birth, in Indigenous societies. We investigated elder Indigenous women's perceptions around optimal perinatal health. METHODS: Using a methodological framework that integrated a constructivist grounded-theory approach with an Indigenous epistemology, we conducted and analyzed in-depth interviews and focus groups with women from the Six Nations community in southern Ontario who self-identified as grandmothers...

BACKGROUND: While many risk factors for breast cancer, such as family history, are not modifiable, some, however, can be modified. The study used formative qualitative research to learn about the physical activity intervention preferences and needs of first-degree female relatives (FDFRs) of breast cancer patients; that information was then used to develop a targeted physical activity intervention. METHODS: Twenty FDFRs first completed a 12-week physical activity intervention and then attended two sequential focus groups (7 groups total)...

Dariusz Galasiński, Justyna Ziółkowska
In this paper we are interested in exploring discursive transformation of patients' stories
of suicidal ideation into medical discourses. In other words, we focus on how the narrated experience of suicidal thoughts made during the psychiatric assessment interview is recorded in the patients' medical record. Our data come from recordings of psychiatric interviews, as well as the doctors' notes in the medical records made after the interviews, collected in psychiatric hospitals in Poland. Assuming a constructionist view of discourse, we demonstrate that lived experience of suicide ideation resulting in stories of a complex and homogeneous group of "thoughts" is reduced to brief statements of fact of presence/existence...

Barbara Orland
Artificial insemination and other fertilization techniques are today considered central to the history of reproductive medicine. The medical treatment of infertile couples, however, constitutes just a small part of the whole story of artificial fertilization. Lazzaro Spallanzani (1729-1799) in particular, said to have been the inventor of artificial insemination, did not develop this method for medical purposes. He belonged to a generation of naturalists to whom artificial insemination was part of a heterogeneous series of investigations that were undertaken to explore the natural history of animal generation...

This paper presents the results of a qualitative study on the use of sandplay, or sand tray therapy, in the psychotherapeutic process of children who have been sexually abused. A longitudinal study was carried out with seven participants between the ages of 7 and 10 years old. Data was produced during observation of the therapeutic activity over the course of three different phases of treatment, using a rubric created especially for this observation. Three sandplay sessions were recorded: one at the start of therapy, one at the 3-month mark, and the third and final session after 6 months of treatment...

BACKGROUND: This article highlights the experiences of a peer-run group, SALOME/NAOMI Association of Patients (SNAP), that meets weekly in the Downtown Eastside of Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. SNAP is a unique independent peer- run drug user group that formed in 2011 following Canada's first heroin-assisted treatment trial (HAT), North America Opiate Medication Initiative (NAOMI). SNAP's members are now made up of former research participants who participated in two heroin-assisted trials in Vancouver...

OBJECTIVE: To explore what helps and hinders recovery and adaptation after disabling traumatic brain injury (TBI) and make recommendations for improving service responsiveness. DESIGN: A longitudinal qualitative descriptive study across all TBI severities. SETTING: Community. PARTICIPANTS: Forty people with TBI, and 22 significant others, 6 to 9 months following a TBI. MAIN MEASURES: Semistructured interviews, analyzed using qualitative description, focused on (a) key areas of importance or concern and (b) strategies or actions that people found helpful or that hindered recovery...

James Traeger
Purpose This is an attempt to write an account of action learning that is as close to the ground on which it was practised as the author can make it. In that sense, the reader can read what follows below as a kind of autoethnography, a "representation as relationship" as Gergen and Gergen (2002, p. 11) call it. This is because in the opportunity of telling a story about his practice as an action learning facilitator, the author hopes to evoke that which is more akin to the contactful environment of quality action learning than any amount of abstract theorising...

Jack W Szostak
The sequence of events that gave rise to the first life on our planet took place in the Earth's deep past, seemingly forever beyond our reach. Perhaps for that very reason the idea of reconstructing our ancient story is tantalizing, almost irresistible. Understanding the processes that led to synthesis of the chemical building blocks of biology and the ways in which these molecules self-assembled into cells that could grow, divide and evolve, nurtured by a rich and complex environment, seems at times insurmountably difficult...

"The human understanding when it has once adopted an opinion...draws all things else to support and agree with it." Francis Bacon, the "Father of Empiricism," came to this conclusion in the 17th century, and some 350 years later, three Stanford psychologists confirmed its validity. They recruited..

A series of Hoechst 33258 based mono and bisbenzimidazoles have been synthesized and their E. coli DNA topoisomerase I inhibition, binding to B-DNA duplex and antibacterial activity has been evaluated. Bisbenzimidazoles with alkynyl side chains display excellent E. coli DNA topoisomerase I inhibition properties with IC50 values < 5.0 μM. Several bisbenzimidazoles (3, 6, 7, 8) also inhibit RNA topoisomerase activity of E. coli DNA topoisomerase I. Bisbenzimidazoles inhibit antibacterial growth much better than mono-benzimidazoles for gram positive strains...

REVIEW
Naeem Khan, Arif T Jan
Pneumococcal surface protein A (PspA) is one of the most abundant cell surface protein of Streptococcus pneumoniae (S. pneumoniae). PspA variants are structurally and serologically diverse and help evade complement-mediated phagocytosis of S. pneumoniae, which is essential for its survival in the host. PspA is currently been screened for employment in the generation of more effective (serotype independent) vaccine to overcome the limitations of polysaccharide based vaccines, providing serotype specific immune responses...

BACKGROUND: The biology of human migration can be observed from the co-evolutionary relationship with infectious diseases. While many pathogens are brief, unpleasant visitors to human bodies, others have the ability to become life-long human passengers. The story of a pathogen's genetic code may, therefore, provide insight into the history of its human host. The evolution and distribution of disease in Africa is of particular interest, because of the deep history of human evolution in Africa, the presence of a variety of non-human primates, and tropical reservoirs of emerging infectious diseases...

Endometrial polyps are localized overgrowth of endometrial glands and stoma through the uterine cavity. They are associated with postmenopausal bleeding, infertility and menorrhagia and are affected by unbalanced oestrogen therapy or increased frequency of tamoxifen exposure. We report a case of giant endometrial polyp in postmenopausal female without vaginal bleeding and hormone or drug use. A 65-year-old, postmenopausal female P3L2 with hypertension and Diabetes Mellitus (DM) came for routine health check-up...
