Severe Asthma: Definitions, risk factors and phenotype characterization
Penny Moraitaki,Despina Papamichail,Niki Georgatou
Pneumon , 2010,
Abstract: SUMMARY. The correct diagnosis of asthma is usually made easily and most patients with asthma respond to therapy. Approximately 5-10% of patients with asthma, however, have disease that is difficult to control despite administration of maximal doses of inhaled medications. It appears that asthma is a heterogeneous disorder which presents not as a single disease but rather as a complex of multiple, separate syndromes that overlap. Although the various different phenotypes of asthma have been long recognized, they are still poorly characterized. Improved phenotypical characterization and understanding of the underlying pathobiology are necessary for linkage of specific genotypes with clinical disease manifestations, for possible development of biomarkers and for devising advanced, phenotype-targeted asthma treatment. This review reports on the asthma phenotypes that have been best described and analyses the methods used to define them. Pneumon 2010, 23(3):260-292.
Pulmonary echinococcosis presenting as a pulmonary mass with fever and haemoptysis; a case report
Panagiota Moraitaki,Penelope Roussi,Yiannis Emmanouil,Rousana Pechlivanidou
Pneumon , 2010,
Abstract: SUMMARY. Hydatidosis, which is caused by larval stage of Echinococcus granulosus, is the most frequently encountered type of anthropozoonosis, and it has been known for centuries. Due to the traditional close association between sheep, dogs and humans, Echinococcus granulosus is endemic in many parts of the world and particularly the Mediterranean countries. The case is reported of a 68 year-old man, a farmer and non smoker, who presented with a 32 day history of haemoptysis and fever. On chest X-ray a mass was observed at the hilum of the right lung. He underwent full clinical, laboratory, and endoscopic evaluation, which was unrevealing. During right thoracotomy a right lower lobectomy was performed that included the mass. Frozen section of the mass was negative for malignancy and the final histopathological examination established the diagnosis of a ruptured pulmonary echinococcus cyst with abscess formation. The postoperative course was uneventful and the patient was discharged from hospital on the ninth postoperative day being treated with albendazole per os. Pulmonary echinococcosis should be included in the differential diagnosis of a lung mass in patients presenting with haemoptysis, especially if there are domestic animals in their environment.

Little weed: Arabidopsis genomic and related data
Penny Webb
Genome Biology , 2001, DOI: 10.1186/gb-2001-2-9-reports2010
Abstract: The homepage consists of a list of categories followed by headings for the contents of each page, which makes it easy to select the page required. It is not as pretty as the old homepage, but is more functional for quick access. Navigation menus and search boxes are at the top of the main pages but do not appear on many of the results pages.The last update for the website was 17 July 2001. The site is updated regularly with a 'breaking news' feature on the several categories on the home page.Gene Hunter searches nine different sites for relevant information about a gene. If you select your search term carefully, Gene Hunter retrieves the available information from all sites despite each of the site's idiosyncrasies regarding search-term nomenclature.If you click a link to MapViewer from the Genetic Marker Object databox, or vice versa, when both frames are already open the content of the frame is updated but the window you have selected confusingly stays in the background.It would useful to have the sequence map resolved and accessible down to nucleotide level with features marked.Other Arabidopsis genome resources include the TIGR Arabidopsis thaliana Database, Department of Plant Gene Research at the Kazusa DNA Research Institute, the MIPS Arabidopsis thaliana Database (MATDB) and the Database of Arabidopsis thaliana Annotation (DAtA).The Arabidopsis Information ResourceTIGR Arabidopsis thaliana DatabaseDepartment of Plant Gene ResearchMIPS Arabidopsis thaliana Database (MATDB)Database of Arabidopsis thaliana Annotation (DAtA)

Education, equality and difference
Penny Enslin
Koers : Bulletin for Christian Scholarship , 1994, DOI: 10.4102/koers.v59i2.669
Abstract: Does the pursuit of equality in post-apartheid education require the removal of difference? This article examines the concepts of difference and equality by exploring two contemporary texts in political philosophy. It is argued that the pursuit of equality can and should, under certain circumstances, accommodate difference in the form of decentralisation and private schools.
Report on the SALEX '97 Lexicographical Training Course, Grahamstown, 15-27 September 1997
Penny Silva
Lexikos , 2012, DOI: 10.5788/8-1-959
Abstract: The report describes the background to the SALEX '97 Lexicographical Training Course, and the reasons for its conception. It explains the constraints within which the course had to be designed, and lists its practical and theoretical aims. The financing of the course, the range of participants attending, the structure of the working day, and the course materials provided to participants are described. The report ends with excerpts from evaluations provided by participants, and with a reference to the second planned training course, SALEX '98. The simple initial framework upon which the course was based is provided as an Appendix. Verslag oor die SALEX '97 leksikografiese opleidingskursus, Grahamstad, 15-27 September 1997 In hierdie verslag word die agtergrond waarteen die SALEX '97 leksikografiese opleidingskursus plaasgevind het, geskets en daar word redes aangevoer vir die ontstaan daarvan. Die beperkings waarbinne die kursus ontwerp moes word, word beskryf en die praktiese en teoretiese doelwitte van die kursus word gelys. Die finansiering van die kursus, die verskeidenheid kursusgangers, die uiteensetting van die werksdag en die kursusmateriaal wat aan die kursusgangers verskaf is, word uiteengesit. Hierdie verslag eindig met aanhalings uit kursusgangers se evaluerings van die kursus, asook met 'n verwysing na die tweede beplande kursus, SALEX '98. Die eenvoudige aanvanklike raamwerk waarop die kursus gebaseer is, word as 'n Bylae weergegee.
Charles Darwin as a theoretical biologist in the mechanistic tradition
David Penny
Trends in Evolutionary Biology , 2009, DOI: 10.4081/eb.2009.e1
Abstract: Charles Darwin has had more impact on biological sciences, and society generally, than any other 19th century biologist. Yet his modus operandi as a scientist is poorly known by evolutionists, and often seriously misinterpreted. Two important aspects of his reasoning discussed here are his hypothetico-deductive approach and his search for mechanisms to explain past events. A wide range of statements from his autobiography and letters show that he worked explicitly in the hypothetico-deductive model. The extracts include strong statements that theories were essential even to know what data to collect; to hold theories only as hypotheses; the necessity to search for data that contradict a cherished theory. He also built on the very mechanistic geological tradition of James Hutton and Charles Lyell, and thus brought into historical biology the search for mechanisms that could be studied in the present to explain events in the past. Taken together, the statements show an excellent scientist working effectively on conceptual issues, whilst searching for mechanisms that could be studied in the present and that would have operated in the past. In retrospect, our understanding has been hampered by forcing overly-simplistic binary choices, such as uniformitarianism and catastrophism. It is important, especially in teaching and interactions with the public, that Darwin’s mode of working is better known, and we need to be more proactive in getting across the message that evolution is good testable science.
