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.

Suicide - statistics & numerical data
Abstract
We investigated changes in the proportion of firearm suicides in Western countries since the 1980s and the relation of these changes to the change in the proportion of households owning firearms. Several countries had an obvious decline in firearm suicides: Norway, United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand. Multilevel modeling of longitudinal data confirmed the effect of the proportion of households owning firearms. Legislation and regulatory measures reducing the availability of firearms in private households can distinctly strengthen the prevention of firearm suicides.

Abstract
ABO, MNSs, and RH blood groups of 920 indigenous inhabitants of two western Austrian mountain valleys were identified, and frequencies of 17 genes and haplotypes were estimated. FST coefficients between the six larger villages were computed and served as the basis for dendrograms by average linkage, a principal components analysis, and a nonlinear map that includes European groups in addition to the Tyrolean population. The genetic distances between the Tyrolean villages are somewhat larger than those among Appenine villages. The two most accessible villages are closest to the neighboring European groups, whereas the more remote villages appear more distant to these. Nevertheless, the gene frequencies are typical of central European populations.
