Dieses Buch betrifft uns alle Sie waren notwendig, um Fortschritte gegen Krebs und AIDS zu erzielen. Klonen und Genforschung wäre ohne sie nicht möglich gewesen. Kurz: Die größten Erfolge der Medizin der letzten Jahrzehnte basieren auf der Entdeckung der HeLa-Zellen. Hinter dem Kürzel verbirgt sich eine Frau namens Henrietta Lacks. Die Afroamerikanerin aus ärmlichen Verhältnissen starb 1951 jung an Gebärmutterhalskrebs. Zuvor wurden ihr ohne ihr Wissen Zellproben entnommen, die sich überraschenderweise vermehrten. Damit war der entscheidende Durchbruch in der Zellkulturforschung geschafft. Die prämierte Wissenschaftsjournalistin Rebecca Skloot stellt in ihrem brillant verfassten Buch wichtige Jahrzehnte der Medizingeschichte vor und wirft dabei immer wieder ethische Fragen auf. Sie erzählt die tragische Familiengeschichte der Lacks’, die von Rassismus und mangelnden Bildungschancen geprägt ist. Ihr Buch ist eine gekonnte Mischung aus Biografie, Medizingeschichte, Debattenbuch und beachtlichem Enthüllungsjournalismus.

stematiker apostrophiert, deren Leistungen bestenfalls als überholt angese hen werden, nicht selten jedoch auch als Hemmschuh für die neuen Seh weisen einer psychodynamischen Psychiatrie mit tiefen psychologischen Theorien, Lehranalysen, Selbsterfahrungsgruppen u. a. m. Unberücksichtigt bleibt dabei meist, daß viele der neuen Lehren trotz der Betonung von Be griffen wie "Seele" oder "psychisch" im Grunde nur maskierte Formen einer modischen identitätstheoretischen Philosophie materialistischer Couleur darstellen (Koehler 1984). Gewiß ist gegen eine psychodynamische Ausbildung des psychiatri schen Nachwuchses wenig einzuwenden, sofern eine Verabsolutierung des gewählten Standpunktes vermieden wird. Leider stellen die zweifellos erfor derlichen tiefen psychologischen Aspekte noch keinen selbstverständlichen Teil einer integralen psychiatrischen Ausbildung an den deutschen Klini ken dar, in denen der junge Assistenzarzt sein diagnostisches und therapeu tisches Wissen erwirbt (Mombour 1984). Deshalb sieht er sich fast überall gezwungen, unter zum Teil erheblichen Schwierigkeiten seinen Zusatztitel für Psychotherapie "außer Haus" zu erwerben. Dessen schwere Zugäng lichkeit, die vor allem institutionell bedingt ist, mag zur Tendenz beitragen, daß die psychodynamische Sehweise eine herausgehobene Position erhält und in der Vorstellung gerade der psychiatrischen Anfanger leicht zum do minierenden Denkansatz gerät.

Hereditary Hemorrhagic Telangiectasia (HHT) is a rare genetic disorder that causes blood vessel abnormalities in the nose, skin, gastrointestinal tract, lungs, brain, and liver. Nosebleeds are the most common symptom of HHT, but abnormal vessels in other organs, if they are not diagnosed and treated, can lead to serious medical complications, including stroke, hemorrhage, anemia, and brain abscess. Psychologist Sara Palmer, who has HHT herself and is an expert in helping people cope with health conditions, draws on current research as she thoroughly describes the symptoms of HHT, explains how the diagnosis is made (and often missed), and details treatment options. While addressing the medical aspects of HHT, Palmer also reveals how people affected by the disorder can maintain their emotional health, take care of family members, and live life as fully as possible. Enriched with illustrations, personal stories of people living with HHT, a glossary, and contact information for the HHT Centers of Excellence (which provide coordinated medical treatment for people with the disorder), Living with HHT is a complete resource for individuals with HHT and their families. This guide is also essential for health professionals seeking more information about this underdiagnosed disease.
