Preparing for terrorism : tools for evaluating the Metropolitan Medical Response System Program by Institute of Medicine (U.S.)( Book )

8 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 276 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The committee was established in the autumn of 2000 to study the feasibility of expanding the Metropolitan Medical Strike Team model established in Washington, DC and neighboring counties into a national program to respond to a mass-casualty terrorism incident. The attacks of September 2001 accelerated their effort and moved it from more theoretical to more concrete realms. The report is not indexed. Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
Isotopes for medicine and the life sciences by Institute of Medicine Staff( Book )

10 editions published between 1900 and 1995 in English and held by 191 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Radioactive isotopes and enriched stable isotopes are used widely in medicine, agriculture, industry, and science, where their application allows us to perform many tasks more accurately, more simply, less expensively, and more quickly than would otherwise be possible. Indeed, in many cases--for example, biological tracers--there is no alternative. In a stellar example of "technology transfer" that began before the term was popular, the Department of Energy (DOE) and its predecessors has supported the development and application of isotopes and their transfer to the private sector. The DOE is now at an important crossroads: Isotope production has suffered as support for DOE's laboratories has declined. In response to a DOE request, this book is an intensive examination of isotope production and availability, including the education and training of those who will be needed to sustain the flow of radioactive and stable materials from their sources to the laboratories and medical care facilities in which they are used. Chapters include an examination of enriched stable isotopes; reactor and accelerator-produced radionuclides; partnerships among industries, national laboratories, and universities; and national isotope policy

Resource sharing in biomedical research by Institute of Medicine (U.S.)( Book )

9 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 157 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The United States is entering an era when, more than ever, the sharing of resources and information might be critical to scientific progress. Every dollar saved by avoiding duplication of efforts and by producing economies of scale will become increasingly important as federal funding enters an era of fiscal restraint. This book focuses on six diverse case studies that share materials or equipment with the scientific community at large: the American Type Culture Collection, the multinational coordinated Arabidopsis thaliana Genome Research Project, the Jackson Laboratory, the Washington Regional Primate Research Center, the Macromolecular Crystallography Resource at the Cornell High-Energy Synchrotron Source, and the Human Genome Center at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. The book also identifies common strengths and problems faced in the six cases, and presents a series of recommendations aimed at facilitating resource sharing in biomedical research
Blood donors and the supply of blood and blood products by Forum on Blood Safety and Blood Availability( Book )

Review of the Fialuridine (FIAU) clinical trials( Book )

8 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 138 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In June 1993 a clinical trial of fialuridine (FIAU), a promising new medication for hepatitis B, was abruptly terminated when one of the 15 out-patients participating in the National Institutes of Health (NIH) study was suddenly hospitalized with liver failure. Although all the remaining patients were contacted and told to stop taking their medication, six more subsequently developed severe toxicity. Five patients died, and two others were probably saved from death only by having liver transplants. In response to a request from the Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services, the IOM committee has analyzed the FIAU clinical trials, making recommendations for additional safeguards for the conduct of future clinical trials. This evaluation included the review of documents pertaining to investigational new drug submissions, protocols and consent forms from other clinical trials, as well as information available from other clinical and preclinical experience with compounds related to FIAU and its parent drug, fiacitibine (FIAC), which is metabolized to FIAU. The committee does not seek to affix responsibility for the adverse outcome of this NIH trial, but instead focuses on whether any rules or procedures governing the clinical trials process itself need to be changed, and if so, what burdens or costs such changes might place on future clinical trials
Changing health care systems and rheumatic disease by Institute of Medicine (U.S.)( Book )

NIH extramural center programs : criteria for initiation and evaluation by Frederick J Manning( Book )

7 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 118 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Grants for research centers located in universities, medical centers, and other nonprofit research institutions account for about 9 percent of the National Institutes of Health budget. Centers are popular because they can bring visibility, focus, and increased resources to bear on specific diseases. However, congressional debate in 2001 over proposed legislation directing NIH to set up centers for muscular dystrophy research highlighted several areas of uncertainty about how to decide when centers are an appropriate research mechanism in specific cases. The debate also highlighted a growing trend among patient advocacy groups to regard centers as a key element of every disease research program, regardless of how much is known about the disease in question, the availability of experienced researchers, and other factors. This book examines the criteria and procedures used in deciding whether to establish new specialized research centers. It discusses the future role of centers in light of the growing trend of large-scale research in biomedicine, and it offers recommendations for improving the classification and tracking of center programs, clarifying and improving the decision process and criteria for initiating center programs, resolving the occasional disagreements over the appropriateness of centers, and evaluating the performance of center programs more regularly and systematically

Improving civilian medical response to chemical or biological terrorist incidents : interim report on current capabilities by Institute of Medicine (U.S.)( Book )

7 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This interim report focuses on current civilian capabilities rather than ongoing and planned research and development (R & D) programs, which will be addressed in the committee's final report. The interim report thus provides a baseline against which to evaluate the utility of technology and R & D programs. It identifies some general areas in which innovative R & D is clearly needed, and in some cases already underway. Assessment of this work and its applicability to coping with domestic terrorism with constitute the second half of this study and be the focus of the final report
An investigation into the value of unit cohesion in peacetime by Frederick J Manning( Book )

2 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A sample of soldiers and their leaders in 20 combat-ready US Army battalions was asked a series of questions about interpersonal relations in their immediate work group. Their answers were scored on a scale intended to reflect group solidarity or 'unit cohesion' summing across individuals yielded a battalion score, which proved to be highly correlated with a measure of overall battalion performance

Summary of the June 2000 Meeting of the Clinical Research Roundtable by Frederick J Manning( )

3 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The 28-member Clinical Research Roundtable (CRR) consists of individuals from a broad range of government, commercial, academic, and non-profit institutions that will gather quarterly for the next 3 years to discuss the challenges facing clinical research. Its June 27-28 meeting was partly organizational in nature, as the members discussed their interests and priorities for future work. The centerpiece of the meeting was a mini-symposium in which several invited speakers helped the CRR explore some of the difficulties involved in attracting, training, and sustaining clinical investigators. The group concluded by forming four groups to explore potential activities in the areas of data collection, the current and evolving clinical research process, career development, and public involvement in clinical research
