TUTORIAL IN BIOSTATISTICS PROPENSITY SCORE METHODS FOR BIAS REDUCTION
In observational studies, investigators have no control over the treatment assignment. The treated and non-treated (that is, control) groups may have largedi?erencesontheir observedcovariates, and these di?erencescanleadto biased estimates of treatmente?ects. Even traditional covariance analysis adjust- mentsmaybe inadequate to eliminate this bias. The propensity score, defined as the conditional probability of being treated given thecovariates, can be used to balance the covariatesin the two groups, and therefore reduce this bias. In order to estimate the propensity score, one must model the distribution of the treatment indicator variable given the observedcovariates. Once estimated the propensity score can be used to reduce bias through matching, stratification (subclassification), regression adjustment, or some combination of all three. In this tutorial we discuss the uses of propensity score methods for bias reduction, give references to the literature and illustrate the uses through applied examples. (1998 John Wiley&Sons, Ltd. INTRODUCTION Observational studies occur frequently in medical research. In these studies, investigators have no control over the treatment assignment.
Basic Organic Chemistry
An Introduction to Organic Chemistry For Chemical Engineers and Other Scientists…This course is an evolution of the very successful Scientific Update Course ‘Basic Organic Chemistry’ and aims to bridge some of the knowledge gaps in the industry by providing a basic introduction to the principles of organic chemistry suitable for chemical engineers and other scientists. It covers the fundamental concepts of three-dimensional molecular structure, nomenclature, reactivity, functional groups as well as a basic inventory of synthetic reactions. It provides an insight into the thinking of the organic chemist and clarifies how the synthetic processes are conceived and developed. The principles are illustrated with current case studies to emphasise how they are translated into industrial processes and reinforced with a series of tutorial problem sessions……

SCIENCE AND VEDIC STUDIES
The knowledge of a country’s history and past cultural and scientific achievements is a central part of its self-consciousness. India is unique in having unbroken cultural traditions reaching back almost four thousand years. Those traditions have changed and evolved, but much ancient practice and belief survives even today in India: the brahmin priest still murmurs prayers from the second millennium BC; the villager cleans his tongue with a scraper described in medical texts from the time of the Buddha. Since science is such an important, even defining, element of modern international culture it is natural to seek India’s historical contribution to this field. The contribution is there, and it is real. During the latter part of the second millennium BC, the eastward migrations of the Indo-European peoples reached South Asia.1 The ritual liturgy of these peoples was memorized wholesale by families of hereditary priests. By extraordinary feats of memory and tradition 1028 of these hymns have reached us today in much the same form as they existed circa 1200 BC. This body of Sanskrit liturgical literature is called veda , ‘the knowledge’.2 The subject matter of these hymns is religious and includes the praise and worship of the gods, and prayers for health, long life, and many sons. From these hymns, we are able to deduce obliquely some information about health, healing and other sciences in these early times. It must be stressed that there is no such thing as’ Vedic Science’ in any unified sense.
