In the early 1970s, desperate to find a treatment for his chronic hay fever and stuffy nose, Dr. Cathcart discovered the merits of vitamin C after reading Paulings Vitamin C and the Common Cold. He became fascinated with the idea that with the onset of a viral illness, the body can process increased amounts of vitamin C without causing its most common side effect, diarrhea. His research led him to develop the Bowel Tolerance Theory of Vitamin C, a concept that the more potent the viral disease, the higher the dosage of vitamin C that can be utilized for treatment. His research resulted in a 1981 paper on titrating vitamin C to bowel tolerance, which became a landmark paper in the field, according to Sandra Goodman, Ph.D. Dr. Cathcart was born in San Antonio, Texas. He graduated from Burlingame High School and earned a degree in economics from Stanford University before enlisting in the U.S. Army in 1955. Dr. Cathcart earned his doctorate at the UCSF School of Medicine in 1961. He did his surgical internship and residency at Stanford Hospital from 1961 to 1966 and was an instructor of orthopedic surgery at Stanford from 1966 to 1967. While at Stanford he designed a prosthesis to replace the ball at the top of the femur, the upper leg bone. His design was based on his finding that the ball is ellipsoidal, rather than round, which had been assumed by earlier designers. The Cathcart Prosthesis has been implanted in more than 100,000 hips. In 1980 he relocated to San Mateo and in 1985 to Los Altos. He was a resident of Portola Valley at the time of his death. Dr. Cathcart, although trained as an orthopedic surgeon, is best known for his accomplishments in orthomolecular medicine. Nobel Prize laureate Linus Pauling coined the term orthomolecular to describe nutrition and preventative medicine. Dr. Cathcart believed that high doses of vitamin C, acting as a free radical scavenger, could decrease most of the morbidity and all of the mortality resulting from viral diseases ranging from the simple cold to complex hepatitis.

Scientific Study from the year 2016 in the subject Biology - Zoology, , language: English, abstract: Stingless bees are limited to tropics and subtropics with diversity in species and share morphological and behaviour patterns. Stingless bees are major pollinators of flowering plants in the tropics and improve crop productivity. Trigona iridipennis Smith were kept in India for centuries for the high medicinal value of honey as well as propolis and bee wax. A wide range of variations, especially worker and drone body size and measurement, were reported. Morphometric and geometric analysis provide a valuable tool for the differentiating variations among various honey bees and stingless bees. Based on these back ground, our objectives of this study were 1) to characterize the morphometric aspects of workers in this reported new species of stingless bees and 2) to identify the various similarities and differences existing based on factor and principal component analysis with Trigona iridipennis Smith. A total of 30 samples of workers were collected and various morphometric characters including head length (HL), head width (HW), proboscis length (PL), distance between two dorsal ocelli/lower intercocular distance (DBO), dorsal ocello-ocular distance (DOOD), antennal length (AL), thorax femur length (TFL), thorax tibia length (TTL), thorax metatarsus length (TML), thorax metatarsus width (TMW), thorax forewing length (TFWL), thorax forewing width (TFWW), pterostigma width (PtStW), pterostigma length (PtStW), hind wing length (HWL), hind wing width (HWW), number of hamuli (HAM), abdominal tergite length (AbTL), abdominal sternum width (AbSW), mandible length (MdL) and mandible width (MdW), head length width ratio (HLW), thorax metatarsus length width ratio (TMLW) and thorax forewing length width ratio (TFWLW) were analyzed. One sample (SS1) showed distinct differences in habitat preference (Laterite rock), appearance (size and colour), behaviour (passive) and nest architecture (narrow round entrance tube, snow white brood, cream white food pots). The present study based on the morphometry of stingless bees across Kerala shows that, in spite of the morphological and behavioural variations exhibited by the bees, members of all samples belong to Trigona iridipennis. But one sample (SS1) shows entirely different morphometric characteristics. It was found that this sample belongs to genus Lisotrigona Dr. Prem Jose Vazhacharickal is currently working as an assistant professor in the Department of Biotechnology, Mar Augusthinose College, Ramapuram, Kerala, India. He received the research training and academic guidance from Prof. Dr. Andreas Buerkert, University of Kassel, Germany.

Peritrochanteric Fractures: A Surgeon´s Perspective:A Comparative Analysis of the Operative Techniques in Peritrochanteric Fractures of Femur Karan Sharma
Jersey Leo is the quintessential outsider - an albino of mixed race. Known as Snowball on the street, he makes a living as the bartender at a mob-run speakeasy in Prohibition-era Hells Kitchen. Being neither black nor white, he has no group to call his own. His own mother abandoned him as a baby. And his father - a former boxing champ with his own secrets - disapproves of Jerseys work at a dive owned by one of New Yorks most notorious gangsters. So when he inadvertently purchases counterfeit moonshine (sugar pop moon) with his bosss money - a potentially fatal mistake - he must go undercover to track down the bootlegger who took him in. The clues lead to Philadelphia, where he runs into a cleaver-swinging madman out for his femurs and a cold-blooded gangster holed up on a Christmas-tree farm. Now with a price on his head in two cities, Jersey seeks help from the only man he can trust, his father. As the two delve into the origins of the mysterious sugar pop moon, stunning secrets about Jerseys past come to light. To ensure his future, Jersey must face his past, even if it means that life will never return to normal. John Florio was raised in Flushing, NY. He credits the streets of Queens as one of his biggest influences, along with black-and-white movies, old superhero comics, Sports Illustrated, Humphrey Bogart, and the Hardy Boys. He plays classical piano, which explains why his work includes numerous musical references, and hes no stranger to a chilled martini, which could account for his creation of Jersey Leo, the albino bartender who stars in Sugar Pop Moon and Blind Moon Alley .
This book adopts a case-based approach to the management of patellofemoral disorders with the aim of helping orthopaedic surgeons at all levels of experience to decide whether individual patients referred with patellofemoral problems should be treated conservatively or operatively. A series of real-life case stories are used to illustrate every stage of the decision-making process and to explore the readers higher-order thinking around patient management. In each case study, the patients history, clinical and imaging findings, and management are reported, during the course of which the reader is asked searching questions. The reader is then able to compare his or her responses with those given by the authors, which are provided at the end of each case-specific chapter. This format ensures that knowledge and understanding improve as the reader progresses through the book. Although the cases are addressed primarily from the standpoint of the orthopaedic surgeon, the dominant management strategy is non-operative in many of them. Beyond surgeons, the book will also be of value for musculoskeletal physiotherapists with a particular interest in the knee.
