The screening options for Gardner syndrome are considered to be similar to those for classic FAP, with the addition of regular skin examinations by a dermatologist, which is a doctor who specializes in diseases and conditions of the skin. The screening options for Turcot syndrome are considered to be similar to those for Lynch syndrome or FAP, with the addition of screening for a brain tumor.

Reducing the gender pay gap is one of the key priorities of gender policies at both EU and national levels. At EU level, the European Commission prioritised "reducing the gender pay, earnings and pension gaps and thus fighting poverty among women" as one of the key areas in the framework of the A Union of Equality: Gender Equality Strategy 2020-2025. The unadjusted gender pay gap indicator is used to monitor imbalances in earnings between men and women.

Welcome to the EudraCT public home page EudraCT (European Union Drug Regulating Authorities Clinical Trials Database) is the database for all interventional clinical trials on medicinal products submitted to the National Competent Authorities (NCAs) of the European Union (EU)/European Economic Area (EEA) from 1 May 2004 until 30 January 2023 under Directive 2001/20/EC, as well as for all trials conducted outside of the EEA that are part of a Paediatric Investigation Plan (PIP) and/or are conducted under Article 45 or 46 of Regulation (EC) No 1901/2006. Most of the protocol and results information of EudraCT trials is made publicly available through the European Union Clinical Trials Register (see Frequently Asked Questions).

Clinical Trial Application recommendation: sponsors are recommended to include a functional contact point in section B.5.6 of the Clinical Trial Application/third country file, rather than details of one "person", which would require more frequent updates.

The EudraCT website has been affected by unexpected SPOR downtimes, which prevent users from performing usual functionalities, such as the uploading of an XML file. Update 24Feb2023: this issue is now solved; however, a few users have reported that they do not see their trials listed in 'your page', in order to post results. We encourage users to report this, in case they are affected, to allow a better investigation and resolution by our IT. In addition, the EudraCT results training environment is currently not accessible: we will keep users updated on its accessibility through the present webpage.

The International Professional Practices Framework (IPPF) is the conceptual framework that organizes authoritative guidance promulgated by The IIA. A trustworthy, global, guidance-setting body, The IIA provides internal audit professionals worldwide with authoritative guidance organized in the IPPF as mandatory guidance and recommended guidance.

Article 1, Section 8 of the United States Constitution vests Congress, and by extension the Executive and Judicial branches of our government, with the authority to engage in relations with the tribes, thereby firmly placing tribes within the constitutional fabric of our nation. When the governmental authority of tribes was first challenged in the 1830's, U. S. Supreme Court Chief Justice John Marshall articulated the fundamental principle that has guided the evolution of federal Indian law to the present: That tribes possess a nationhood status and retain inherent powers of self-government.

A federally recognized tribe is an American Indian or Alaska Native tribal entity that is recognized as having a government-to-government relationship with the United States, with the responsibilities, powers, limitations, and obligations attached to that designation, and is eligible for funding and services from the Bureau of Indian Affairs.

When tribes first encountered Europeans, they were a power to be reckoned with because the combined American Indian and Alaska Native population dominated the North American continent. Their strength in numbers, the control they exerted over the natural resources within and between their territories, and the European practice of establishing relations with countries other than themselves and the recognition of tribal property rights led to tribes being seen by exploring foreign powers as sovereign nations, who treatied with them accordingly.

Tribes possess all powers of self-government except those relinquished under treaty with the United States, those that Congress has expressly extinguished, and those that federal courts have ruled are subject to existing federal law or are inconsistent with overriding national policies. Tribes, therefore, possess the right to form their own governments; to make and enforce laws, both civil and criminal; to tax; to establish and determine membership (i.e., tribal citizenship); to license and regulate activities within their jurisdiction; to zone; and to exclude persons from tribal lands.

Congress has recognized the right of tribes to have a greater say over the development and implementation of federal programs and policies that directly impact on them and their tribal members. It did so by enacting two major pieces of legislation that together embody the important concepts of tribal self-determination and self-governance: The Indian Self-determination and Education Assistance Act of 1975, as amended (25 U.S.C. 450 et seq.) and the Tribal Self-Governance Act of 1994 (25 U.S.C. 458aa et seq.). Through these laws, Congress accorded tribal governments the authority to administer themselves the programs and services usually administered by the BIA for their tribal members. It also upheld the principle of tribal consultation, whereby the federal government consults with tribes on federal actions, policies, rules or regulations that will directly affect them.

The Bureau of Indian Affairs is a rarity among federal agencies. With roots reaching back to the earliest days of the republic, the BIA is almost as old as the United States itself. For most of its existence, the BIA has mirrored the public's ambivalence towards the nation's indigenous people. But, as federal policy has evolved from seeking the subjugation of American Indians and Alaska Natives into one that respects tribal self-determination, so, too, has the BIA's mission evolved into one that is based on service to and partnership with the tribes.

"The BIA's mission is to enhance the quality of life, to promote economic opportunity, and to carry out the responsibility to protect and improve the trust assets of American Indians, Indian tribes and Alaska Natives. We will accomplish this through the delivery of quality services, maintaining government-to-government relationships within the spirit of self-determination."

Extraction can be carried out by an acid or alkaline treatment [33]. Extraction under acid treatment is usually applied for extraction of collagen type I from tissues of porcine or fish skin origin [34]. Acetic acid is the most common reagent for collagen extraction. The concentration of this acid will affect the final pH value changing the electrostatic interaction and structure. It also determines the solubility and extraction capacity from animal tissue [35]. A combination of both acidic and enzymatic treatment produces a higher and more efficient collagen extraction process [26]. Pepsin can be obtained from porcine gastric mucosa. This enzyme affects the telopeptidic region in the collagen molecule increasing its solubility in an acidic medium [36,37]. The use of ultrasound as an alternative method for collagen extraction does not change the molecule and facilitates the enzymatic action. This technology can be applied in different tissues such as fish skin and bovine tendons in order to produce higher collagen concentrations in shorter extraction times [38,39,40].

In recent years, oral collagen supplementation has become popular as it has been increasingly marketed to consumers as an anti-aging product, because HC oral supplementation reaches the deeper layers of the skin and improves skin physiology and appearance increasing hydration, elasticity, firmness, wrinkle reduction, and skin rejuvenation [122,123] (Table 2).

HC has been used in processed foods such as sausages to replace pork fat at 50% level of replacement. The final product results had greater water holding capacity, better stability after cooking, and improved texture such as hardness and chewiness [129]. The use of fish HC in meat products such as buffalo patties, resulted in higher protein content, lower fat content, similar sensory acceptability, and better texture as compared to the buffalo patties without HC [130]. HC from bovine skin was used in combination with modified starch and guar gum in ham elaboration. Lower syneresis with 2.0% of HC final concentration in the product was reported as the best treatment [131].
