L’éthique médicale et la bioéthique / Didier Sicard (2017)

ethiqueMe connaître : « Le mot « éthique », lorsqu’il est appliqué aux sciences et à la médecine du vivant, semble recouvrir indifféremment l’« éthique médicale » proprement dite, c’est-à-dire l’exigence d’un certain comportement de la médecine au service du malade, et la bioéthique, qui est la mise en forme, à partir d’une recherche pluridisciplinaire, d’un questionnement sur les conflits de valeurs suscités par le développement techno-scientifique dans le domaine du vivant. Ces deux termes ont, du reste, des champs d’application voisins ou croisés lorsqu’il s’agit du don d’organe ou de l’assistance à la procréation. » Plus…

Epidemics : hate and compassion from the plague of Athens to AIDS / Samuel K. Cohn (2018)

epidemicsMe connaître : « By investigating thousands of descriptions of epidemics reaching back before the fifth-century-BCE Plague of Athens to the distrust and violence that erupted with Ebola in 2014, Epidemics challenges a dominant hypothesis in the study of epidemics, that invariably across time and space, epidemics provoked hatred, blaming of the ‘other’, and victimizing bearers of epidemic diseases, particularly when diseases were mysterious, without known cures or preventive measures, as with AIDS during the last two decades of the twentieth century. » More…

Biomatériaux : structure, comportement mécanique et endommagement des tissus vivants : matériaux de substitution / Bernard Lamy (2018)

biomateriauxMe connaître : « L’endommagement et le vieillissement des tissus vivants sont dus à des causes très diverses : physico-chimiques (rayonnements UV sur la peau…), mécaniques (sollicitations répétées des os…) ou tribologiques (usure des cartilages…). L’ouvrage traite successivement des os, des cartilages, des tendons, des ligaments et de la peau. Pour chacun de ces tissus, il décrit sa fonction, son anatomie, son comportement mécanique. Puis il analyse les causes et les conséquences du vieillissement et de l’endommagement. » Plus…

Ecology and evolution of infectious diseases : pathogen control and public health management in low-income countries / edited by Benjamin Roche, Hélène Broutin, Frédéric Simard (2018)

infectious.diseasesMe connaître : « In recent years, the ecology and evolution of infectious diseases has been studied extensively and new approaches to the study of host-pathogen interactions continue to emerge. At the same time, pathogen control in low-income countries has tended to remain largely informed by classical epidemiology, where the objective is to treat as many people as possible, despite recent research suggesting new opportunities for improved disease control in the context of limited economic resources. » More…

War epidemics : an historical geography of infectious diseases in military conflict and civil strife, 1850-2000 / M. R. Smallman-Raynor and A. D. Cliff (2006)

Me connaître

« Down the ages, war epidemics have decimated the fighting strength of armies, caused the suspension and cancellation of military operations, and have brought havoc to the civil populations of belligerent and non-belligerent states alike. This book examines the historical occurrence and geographical spread of infectious diseases in association with past wars. It addresses an intrinsically geographical question: how are the spatial dynamics of epidemics influenced by military operations and the directives of war? The term historical geography in the title indicates the authors’ primary concern with qualitative analyses of archival source materials over a 150-year time period from 1850, and this is combined with quantitative analyses less frequently associated with historical studies. » More…

Climate change and mycotoxins / edited by Luis M. Botana and María J. Sainz (2015)

Me connaître

« Climate Change and Mycotoxins highlights the importance of the continuous study of climate change impacts on mycotoxigenic fungi and their toxins in food and feed crops. Changing climate conditions across every geographical zone greatly affect rainfall, temperature and concentration of greenhouse gases leading to loss in yield and quality of food crops. In outstanding contributions, the authors compile current evidence on the influence of climate change on mycotoxigenic fungi and mycotoxins in food crops pre- and postharvest and during storage of food and animal feed. » More…

bioprinting

Bioprinting : principles and applications / Chee Kai Chua, Wai Yee Yeong (2015)

Me connaître

« At labs around the world, researchers have been experimenting with bioprinting, first just to see whether it was possible to push cells through a printhead without killing them (in most cases it is), and then trying to make cartilage, bone, skin, blood vessels, small bits of liver and other tissues. There are other ways to try to “engineer” tissue — one involves creating a scaffold out of plastics or other materials and adding cells to it. In theory, at least, a bioprinter has advantages in manipulating control of the placement of cells and other components to mimic natural structures. » More…
