Thyroid cancer is cancer of the thyroid gland. These may be of many types including papillary, follicular, Hurthle cell (aka oxyphilic or oncocytic), or medullary cancers. Surgery plays an important role in treating these cancers. The thyroid concentrates iodine and so is extremely sensitive to the effects of various radioactive isotopes of iodine produced by nuclear fission. These radioactive isotopes increase the chances of developing cancer, though thyroid cancer can develop even without any exposure to radioactivity. Some evidence suggests that insufficient or excessive dietary iodine may also increase the risk for thyroid cancer. This book presents the latest research in this field.
This book presents evolving language education trends by drawing examples and case studies from around the world. Over the past few decades, significant economic and political changes have taken place around the world which have had a significant impact on language teaching and learning practices across the globe. There is a clear movement towards multilingual practices in the contemporary world, evinced by the title of UNESCO's 2003 education position paper, "Education in a Multilingual World". With globalization, the focus of language education has shifted from monolingualism towards bilingualism and multilingualism, in that multilingual practices have become the norm rather than the exception in most parts of the world. Nonetheless, most existing books on language education in general and books on bilingualism and multilingualism in particular have largely ignored or simply eluded the concept of globalization and its influences on language education policies and practices. This book brings together some of latest controversies and case studies from South East Asia, the most diverse and multilingual context in the world, along with various other diverse contexts of importance. This book will be of interest to graduate students and advanced undergraduates in sociolinguistics, applied linguistics, and bilingual and multicultural education, second and foreign language educators, and other specialists in these fields.
This Trends in Inflammatory Bowel Disease Therapy Symposium was held in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, 27~29 August 1999. This is the seventh international symposium, sponsored by Axcan Pharma Canada Inc., since the first symposium in 1986. The Canadian Association of Gastroenterology has co-sponsored these symposia since 1990. Each symposium has been published, and reflects and updates the extensive research and education, and the understanding of the mechanisms and treatment of inflammatory bowel disease. From the beginning, Canadian and international experts have been involved, maintaining a consistently high quality, both in their presentations, during discussions, and the subsequent publication of their work. There have been major advances since the symposium held two years ago, and these are presented in this book. In keeping with modern educational practice, objectives are provided, and all presentations were subject to written independent evalu- ation. All participants are asked to declare any conflicts of interest. MOCOMP and educational credits are available.
