Homeopathy as Boundary Object and Distributed Therapeutic Agency. A Discussion on the Homeopathic Placebo Response

Conclusions: Through its relation with biomedicine, its doctrine, consultation design, and treatment rituals, homeopathy offers a powerful medium to elicit a placebo response in a therapeutic alliance. By virtue of its proximity and radical difference from the scientific and biomedical enterprises, its material and textual organization, its storytelling and esthetics, homeopathy offers doctors and patients the opportunity and the tools to collaborate, to witness healing, and to hope for success against adversity.

A newly isolated yeast strain, namely Dipodascus capitatus A4C is a specific yeast that could produce lipases in both extracellular and cell-bound forms. Various low-cost substrates were applied as single or mixed carbon sources for D. capit...

However, phylogenetic relationships are important for understanding historical connections within and among biogeographical regions. Phylogeny-based delineation of biota is a burgeo...

However, earlier biochemical reconstitution systems had a serious technical limitation, namely very poor initiation efficiency. Due to the poor efficiency of the reaction and trace amounts of proteins involved in the pre-initiation complex (PIC) assembly, detection of transcription and PIC formation was only possible by the synthesis of a radiolabeled transcript and...

Publication date: Available online 21 March 2019Source: MethodsAuthor(s): A. Lim, S. Lim, S. KimAbstractEnhancer is a DNA sequence of a genome that controls transcription of downstream target genes. Enhancers are known to be associated with certain epigenetic signatures. Machine learning tools, such as CSI-ANN, ChromHMM, and RFECS, were developed for predicting enhancers using various epigenetic features. However, predictions by different tools vary widely and quite a significant portion of enhancer predictions does not agree. Thus, computational methods for enhancer prediction should be further developed. In this paper, a...
