Global public health security and justice for vaccines and therapeutics in the COVID-19 pandemic
Hotez, Peter J.; et. al. (2021-09-01)
A Lancet Commission for COVID-19 task force is shaping recommendations to achieve vaccine and therapeu-tics access, justice, and equity. This includes ensuring safety and effectiveness harmonized through robust sys-tems of global pharmacovigilance and surveillance. Global production requires expanding support for development, manufacture, testing, and distribution of vaccines and therapeutics to low-and middle-income countries (LMICs). Global intellectual property rules must not stand in the way of research...

Incorporation of personal Single Nucleotide Polymorphism (SNP) data into a national level electronic health record for disease risk assessment, part 2: The incorporation of SNP into the national health information system of Turkey
Beyan, Timur; Aydın Son, Yeşim (2014-08-01)
©Timur Beyan, Yeşim Aydin Son.Background: A personalized medicine approach provides opportunities for predictive and preventive medicine. Using genomic, clinical, environmental, and behavioral data, the tracking and management of individual wellness is possible. A prolific way to carry this personalized approach into routine practices can be accomplished by integrating clinical interpretations of genomic variations into electronic medical record (EMR)s/electronic health record (EHR)s systems. Today, various...
New Mechanistic Philosophy and the Scientific Prospects of Code Biology
Davoody Benı, Majıd (2019-08-01)
Marcello Barbieri has presented code biology as an alternative to the Peircean approach to biosemiotics. Some critics questioned the viability of code biology on grounds that Barbieri's conception of science is limited. It has been argued that code biology's mechanistic tendency is the cause of the allegedly limited conception of science. In this paper, I evaluate the scientific viability of the code model from the perspective of scientific realism in the philosophy of science. To be more precise, I draw on...
Special index and retrieval mechanism for ontology based medical domain search engines
Kubilay, Mustafa; Baykal, Nazife; Department of Information Systems (2005)
This thesis focuses on index and retrieval mechanism of an ontology based medical domain search engine. First, indexing techniques and retrieval methods are reviewed. Then, a special indexing and retrieval mechanism are introduced. This thesis also specifies the functional requirements of these mechanisms. Finally, an evaluation is given by indicating the positive and negative aspects of mechanisms.
