Touted as a potential breakthrough cancer therapy in the 1980s by the scientific community and publications such as TIME and Newsweek magazine, the reputation of interferon has not lived up to its early promise. Interferons are small proteins with anti-viral and anti-cancer effects, which have the power to modulate the functioning of the immune system. But Dr. Joseph Cummins, an early interferon pioneer, holder of sixteen US medical patents, author of more than sixty scientific publications, as well as having taught veterinary medicine at the University of Missouri, University of Illinois, and Texas A & M University, argues that the current thinking on interferon is fundamentally flawed. Interferon is created in small quantities in the body in response to infection, and seems to work best at these low dosages. However, the public health cowboys, working under the assumption that anything good in tiny amounts must be better in massive amounts, pursued exactly the wrong strategy. High-dose interferon does not work in the body and may even cause problems. The first remarkable results for interferon and the flu were reported by the Soviets in the 1970s, but Western medicine discounted these findings because they believed the dosages were so low they couldn’t possibly be effective. In the 1980s, when interferon was expensive to produce and only small quantities could be manufactured, the results were remarkable. Dr. Cummins was an early pioneer of low-dose interferon, and his remarkable findings among animals led to collaborations with medical doctors for human trials, even going so far as Africa at the height of the HIV-AIDS epidemic. Cummins reviews the evidence for this inexpensive, safe treatment and makes an eloquent argument for medical science to take another look at interferon to tackle today’s most challenging health conditions, including COVID-19.

Both prescription and non-prescription medications used in medicine and psychiatry can cause a varietyof problems for those taking them, both in terms of their behavior and their ability to think. The first book to thoroughly examine how to recognize and manage the psychological side-effects of these medicines, this exhaustive work also provides a fingertip source of vital information for everyone from psychiatrists, primary care doctors and other medical subspecialty practitioners to students, residents and general readers. Noted physicians Thomas Markham Brown and Alan Stoudemire cover all of the major medications used in medicine and psychiatry, with full chapters on such topics as: * Antipsychotics* Antidepressants* Lithium* Anticonvulsants* Anesthetic agents* Sedative-Hypnotic and related agents* Antibiotics* Cardiovascular agents* Antineoplastic agents* Gastrointestinal agents* Pulmonary agents* Hematologic agents* Antilipemic agents* Drugs affecting the endocrine system Throughout this information-packed reference, the authors, noted physicians Thomas Markham Brown and Alan Stoudemire, cover all of the major medications used in medicine and psychiatry. They focus on the fundamental ways drugs cause cognitive toxicity and map strategies for clinical management. They also address the consequences of drug interactions and the basic pathophysiology of central nervous system toxicity. With the help of Psychiatric Side Effects of Prescription and Over-the-Counter Medications, readers will be able to quickly identify the ways drugs sometimes negatively affect behavior and ability to reason, and then determine the best practical course for treating those problems. A CD-ROM containing the complete contents of Psychiatric Side Effects of Prescription and Over the Counter Medications is included. Fully searchable, this CD-ROM is compatible on both MACINTOSH and WINDOWS systems.

On October 16 and 17, 2000, we hosted an international workshop entitled "Statistical Design, Measurement, and Analysis of Health Related Quality of Life." The workshop was held in the beautiful city of Arradon, South Brittany, France with the main goal of fostering an interdisciplinary forum for discussion of theoretical and applied statistical issues arising in studies of health-related quality of life (HRQoL). Included were biostatisticians, psychometricians and public health professionals (e.g., physicians, sociologists, psychologists) active in the study ofHRQoL. In assembling this volume, we invited each conference participant to contribute a paper based on his or her presentation and the ensuing and very interesting discussions that took place in Arradon. All papers were peer-reviewed, by anonymous reviewers, and revised before final editing and acceptance. Although this process was quite time consuming, we believe that it greatly improved the volume as a whole, making this book a valuable contribution to the field ofHRQoL research. The volume presents a broad spectrum of papers presented at the Workshop, and thus illustrates the range of current research related to the theory, methods and applications of HRQoL, as well as the interdisciplinary nature ofthis work. Following an introduction written by Sir David Cox, it includes 27 articles organized into the following chapters.
