NOTE: This is the first issue of this journal for 2011 and it just came into PubMed. The last three issues of 2010 have not appeared there yet; the National Library of Medicine has been notified and they will process those issues. I will then put them in a Current Awareness list. I don’t post citations from this journal in a list until they appear in PubMed because this journal does not have a web site and PubMed is the best way to have online access to the abstracts.
