Abstract
Objectives: To review experience from a recently established and successful thematic research network and to speculate on the potential value of a similar approach to more rapidly accumulate evidence and move forward implementation of eHealth solutions in the pan-Arctic setting. Study design: Retrospective review of (1) documents describing the genesis, deployment and performance of the Pan Asian Collaborative for Evidence-based eHealth Adoption and Application (PANACeA), and (2) the eHealth publication record of the International Journal of Circumpolar Health (ICJH) from 1998 to 2008. Methods: The consultant's report, first-year technical reports and interim presentations on PANACeA progress were reviewed, and key information that illustrated the progress and performance (challenges and successes) in planning, initiating and implementing this research network was extracted. In addition, the number of eHealth-related articles published in the IJCH over a 20-year period was enumerated. Results: The findings demonstrate that the thematic research network approach has value. Placed in the context of the relevance of eHealth to the Arctic, research into eHealth adoption and application as well as the evidence of sparse publication of eHealth activities in the circumpolar region, a similar approach focusing on northern circumpolar eHealth research could prove valuable. Conclusions: It is recommended that consideration be given to creation of a pan-Arctic collaborative for eHealth research in the northern circumpolar region.

Abstract
An analysis of the current and historical literature is presented in order to assess the weight of evidence for the existence of tuberculosis among the Native Americans of North America before the time of Columbus. Literature related to pertinent artifacts, biologic specimens, geographic and geologic history, epidemiology, and early travelogues and histories in considered. While the evidence does not convincingly confirm or deny the presence of this disease in America's earliest human history, an understanding of the factors related to the epidemiology of tuberculosis is of value for both social and public health reasons.

Abstract
Objective: The Circumpolar Health Bibliographic Database (CHBD) contains 4,850 records describing publications about all aspects of human health in the circumpolar region. The database is a project of the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) Team in circumpolar health research. In this paper we describe the CHBD. Methods: Descriptive study. Results: The CHBD induces all types of publications, both peer-reviewed and "gray" (not peer-reviewed) literature, in paper and digital formats. It can be searched using words from titles and abstracts, names of diseases or conditions, types of people, geographic regions, authors, years and special groups of publications, such as all publications of the members of the CIHR Team. Search results can be sorted by year or by first author. The records in the CHBD contain citations, abstracts, subject and geographic indexing terms, library symbols and links to 2,000 online publications. As part of the CHBD project, server space is available to make PDF files of publications available online. Records created for the CHBD also appear in the Arctic Science and Technology Information System (ASTIS), the international Arctic & Antarctic Regions database and in relevant Canadian regional databases, such as the Inuvialuit Settlement Region Database, the Nunavut Environmental Database and the Nunavik Bibliography. Conclusions: The CHBD's coverage is far from comprehensive but the database includes many publications not indexed elsewhere, such as "gray" literature from Canada's northern territories, all human health publications from the Northern Contaminants Program and International Polar Year health publications.
