PRODUCT INFORMATION NAME OF THE MEDICINE Granisetron Kabi Concentrated Injection Granisetron hydrochloride has the following chemical structure: Empirical formula: Molecular weight: The systematic chemical name is endo-N-(9-methyl-9-azabicyclo [3.3.1] non-3-yl)-1-methyl-1H-indazole-3-carboxamide hydrochloride. DESCRIPTION Granisetron hydrochloride is a white to off-white crystalline powder which is freely soluble in water and sodium chloride 0.9% at 20°C. Granisetron Kabi Concentrated Injection contains granisetron hydrochloride equivalent to granisetron free base 1 mg/mL. It also contains sodium chloride, citric acid monohydrate, hydrochloric acid, sodium hydroxide and water for injections. PHARMACOLOGY Granisetron is a potent anti-emetic and highly selective antagonist of 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT3) receptors. Radioligand binding studies have demonstrated that granisetron has negligible affinity for other receptor types, including 5-HT, alpha1 and alpha2, beta-adrenoreceptors, histamine H1, picrotoxin, benzodiazepine, opioid and dopamine D2 binding sites. Antagonism of 5-HT receptors located peripherally on vagal nerve terminals

ARTICLE IN PRESS The Association Between Autism and Errors in EarlyEmbryogenesis: What Is the Causal Mechanism?Annemie Ploeger, Maartje E.J. Raijmakers, Han L.J. van der Maas, and Frietson Galis The association between embryonic errors and the development of autism has been recognized in the literature, but the mechanismunderlying this association remains unknown. We propose that pleiotropic effects during a very early and specific stage of embryonicdevelopment— early organogenesis— can explain this association. In humans early organogenesis is an embryonic stage, spanning Day 20to Day 40 after fertilization, which is characterized by intense interactivity among body parts of the embryo. This implies that a singlemutation or environmental disturbance affecting development at this stage can have several phenotypic effects (i.e., pleiotropic effects).Disturbances during early organogenesis can lead to many different anomalies, including limb deformities, craniofacial malformations,brain pathology, and anomalies in other organs. We reviewed the literature and found ample evidence for the association between autismand different kinds of physical anomalies, which agrees with the hypothesis that pleiotropic effects are involved in the development ofautism. The proposed mechanism integrates findings from a variety of studies on autism, including neurobiological studies and studies onphysical anomalies and prenatal influences on neurodevelopmental outcomes. The implication is that the origin of autism can be muchearlier in embryologic development than has been frequently reported.

Chapter 12 The Anisotropy of Metal Oxide Surface Properties G.S. Rohrer Department of Materials Science and Engineering, Carnegie Mellon University,Pittsburgh PA, 15213-3890, U.S.A. The surface properties of metal oxides influence the rates of heterogeneouschemical reactions, the growth of heteroepitaxial films, and the sintering ofparticles during the consolidation of ceramics. Just as certain bulk properties ofcrystalline materials are anisotropic, surface properties also depend onorientation. The dependence of surface properties on orientation can berationalized by recognizing that the atoms on crystallographically distinct facetshave different coordination environments, as illustrated schematically in Fig. 1.This same figure also illustrates that in binary and more complex materials,surfaces with identical orientations can be terminated by different atomic layerswith distinct compositions. Throughout this chapter, we shall take the"character" of a surface to be defined by its orientation, {hkl}, and its atomictermination layer.

Micro-Level Value Creation Under Managerial Short-termism ∗ Jonathan B. Cohn† University of Texas at Austin University of Texas at Dallas Wharton Research Data Services We present evidence that managers facing short-termist incentives set a lower threshold for accepting projects. Using novel data on new client and product an- nouncements in both the U.S. and international markets, we find that the marketresponds less positively to a new project announcement when the firm's managers haveincentives to focus on short-term stock price performance. Furthermore, textual analy-sis of project announcements show that firms with short-termist CEOs use more vagueand generically positive language when introducing new projects to the marketplace.Keywords: CEO Short-termism, Corporate Investment, CEO Compensation, CareerConcerns, Corporate Governance

Dreaming and rem sleep are controlled by different brain mechanisms

BEHAVIORAL AND BRAIN SCIENCES (2000) 23, 793–1121Printed in the United States of America Dreaming and REM sleep are controlled by different brain mechanisms Mark SolmsAcademic Department of Neurosurgery, St. Bartholomew's and Royal London School of Medicine, Royal London Hospital, London E1 1BB, United Kingdom Abstract: The paradigmatic assumption that REM sleep is the physiological equivalent of dreaming is in need of fundamental revision.A mounting body of evidence suggests that dreaming and REM sleep are dissociable states, and that dreaming is controlled by forebrainmechanisms. Recent neuropsychological, radiological, and pharmacological findings suggest that the cholinergic brain stem mechanismsthat control the REM state can only generate the psychological phenomena of dreaming through the mediation of a second, probablydopaminergic, forebrain mechanism. The latter mechanism (and thus dreaming itself) can also be activated by a variety of nonREM trig-gers. Dreaming can be manipulated by dopamine agonists and antagonists with no concomitant change in REM frequency, duration,and density. Dreaming can also be induced by focal forebrain stimulation and by complex partial (forebrain) seizures during nonREMsleep, when the involvement of brainstem REM mechanisms is precluded. Likewise, dreaming is obliterated by focal lesions along a spe-cific (probably dopaminergic) forebrain pathway, and these lesions do not have any appreciable effects on REM frequency, duration, anddensity. These findings suggest that the forebrain mechanism in question is the final common path to dreaming and that the brainstemoscillator that controls the REM state is just one of the many arousal triggers that can activate this forebrain mechanism. The "REM-on"mechanism (like its various NREM equivalents) therefore stands outside the dream process itself, which is mediated by an independent,forebrain "dream-on" mechanism.

El reencantamiento del mundo – michel maffesoli

EL REENCANTAMIENTO DEL MUNDO Una ética para nuestro tiempo Michel Maffesoli Prólogo a esta edición La ética inmoralista y el espíritu del neotribalismo En el paisaje actual de la sociología contemporánea, Maffesoli tiene un lugar muy singular: se encuentra lejos de cualquier moda intelectual y a contrapelo de las corrientes dominantes, lo que naturalmente le confiere una relativa soledad. Esa singularidad resulta paradójica: a pesar de nutrir el centro de su reflexión sobre fuentes indudablemente sociológicas, predica en el desierto como un profeta alejado de la comodidad institucional de la disciplina.

Cmdh agrees to strengthen warnings on the use of valproate medicines in women and girls

21 November 2014 CMDh agrees to strengthen warnings on the use of valproate medicines in women and girls Women to be better informed of risks of valproate use in pregnancy and need for contraception The CMDh, a regulatory body representing EU Member States, has agreed to strengthen warnings on the use of valproate medicines in women and girls due to the risk of malformations and developmental problems in babies who are exposed to valproate in the womb. The warnings aim to ensure that patients are aware of the risks and that they take valproate only when clearly necessary.
