Nanoscience and Nanotechnology: Environmental, Health, and Safety Research Strategy, Human and Environmental Exposure Assessment, Innovative Medical Research at the Molecular Scale

This compendium of official government documents provides a thorough overview of the environmental, health, and safety aspects of nanotechnology. The same unique properties that characterize nanomaterials enabling new applications also carry potential risks to human health and the environment. To maximize benefits and minimize potential risks from nanotechnology, the National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI) agencies have […]

Pre-Operative Clinical Assessment for Anaesthesia and the Effect of HIV Infection (Clinical Report)

Pre-Operative Clinical Assessment for Anaesthesia and the Effect of HIV Infection (Clinical Report)

Background. HIV infection is common in South Africa, often remaining clinically latent and liable to be missed during clinical pre-operative assessment, despite the patient having a severe degree of immune compromise. Objectives. The primary objective was to determine the pre-operative physical status of patients presenting for anaesthesia, and to compare this with subsequent HIV tests […]

A Comparative Risk Assessment for South Africa in 2000: Towards Promoting Health and Preventing Disease (Overviews)

A Comparative Risk Assessment for South Africa in 2000: Towards Promoting Health and Preventing Disease (Overviews)

A landmark project of the Medical Research Council, the first South African National Burden of Disease (SA NBD) study, identified the underlying causes of premature mortality and morbidity experienced in South Africa in the year 2000. (1) These estimates were recently revised (2) on the basis of additional data to estimate the disability-adjusted life years […]
