Synthesis and biocompatibility assessment of polyaniline nanomaterials

Yumei Zhang, Miaomiao Zhou, Chengfu Dou, Guodong Ma, Yin Wang, Ningchuan Feng, Wenping Wang & Lanyun Fang
To investigate the biocompatibility of polyaniline nanomaterials as the drug carrier, polyaniline nanospheres with high-molecular weight (Mw ~48,000) and nanofibers with low-molecular weight (Mw ~4000) were prepared and cytotoxicity, acute oral toxicity test, and histopathology examination were performed. Cytotoxicity test showed that both nanofibers and nanospheres were quite toxic to BV2 microglia cells at higher concentration and the former were more toxic than the latter. No clear sign of acute toxicity was found after oral...

Misconceptions and Malpractices Toward Antibiotic Use in Childhood Upper Respiratory Tract Infections Among a Cohort of Lebanese Parents

Ghada El Khoury, Elsy Ramia & Pascale Salameh
Antimicrobial resistance is an emerging global health threat. Misuse and abuse of antibiotics are of particular concern in the pediatric population. Since management of childhood illnesses depends considerably on parents’ perceptions, the objectives of this study were to report parents’ perspectives and assess their practices toward antibiotics used for upper respiratory tract infections (URTIs) in children. Using a cross-sectional design, anonymous structured questionnaires were completed by 1,037 parents in public and private schools across Lebanon’s...

Using anti-Xa level for adjusting intravenous unfractionated heparin infusion in peripartum thromboembolic disease

Enrica Tse, Rshmi Khurana, Gwen Clarke & Winnie Sia
BackgroundIntravenous unfractionated heparin infusion is often used to minimize the duration of time without anticoagulation around delivery in pregnant patients with high thrombotic risk. Activated partial thromboplastin time is commonly used to monitor and adjust heparin dose. However, using activated partial thromboplastin time is problematic in pregnancy because activated partial thromboplastin time response to unfractionated heparin is attenuated due to elevated Factor VIII levels and may lead to incorrect dosing.CaseWe report a case of deep...

Influence of Schizophrenia-Associated Gene Egr3 on Sleep Behavior and Circadian Rhythms in Mice

Amanda M. Maple, Rachel K. Rowe, Jonathan Lifshitz, Fabian Fernandez & Amelia L. Gallitano
Up to 80% of people meeting DSM-IV definitions for schizophrenia will exhibit difficulties with sleep, along with a breakdown in circadian entrainment and rhythmicity. The changes to the sleep and circadian systems in this population are thought to be interdependent, as evidenced by the frequent use of the combined term “sleep and circadian rhythm disruption” or “SCRD” to describe their occurrence. To understand links between sleep and circadian problems in the schizophrenia population, we analyzed...

Components of compulsory service program for health professionals in low- and middle-income countries: a scoping review

CT Antonio, JP Guevarra, PN Medina, MD Avelino, AG Agbon, DC Sepe, DD Bardelosa, MM Cengca, ML Ting & AB Lara
Aims:The global health landscape has been characterized by shortfalls and imbalances in human resources for health (HRH), with more health workers concentrated in urban than rural areas. To address this maldistribution, some countries resorted to the implementation of a compulsory service policy for HRH. However, there is no comprehensive documentation describing the different components of such policies. This scoping review aims to determine the components for compulsory service for selected health professionals in low- and...

The Woodcock-Johnson IV Tests of Achievement Provides Too Many Scores for Clinical Interpretation

Stefan C. Dombrowski, A. Alexander Beaujean, Ryan J. McGill & Nicholas F. Benson
The Woodcock-Johnson Tests of Achievement, Fourth Edition (WJ IV ACH) is purported to align with Cattell–Horn–Carroll (CHC) theory and offers upward of 20 scores within its interpretive and scoring system. The Technical Manual does not furnish validity evidence for the scores reported by the scoring system, suggesting that evidentiary support may be incomplete. Exploratory bifactor analysis (EBFA; maximum likelihood extraction with a bigeomin [orthogonal] rotation) was applied to the two school-aged correlation matrices at ages...

Semi-quantitative cerebral blood flow parameters derived from non-invasive [15O]H2O PET studies

Thomas Koopman, Maqsood Yaqub, Dennis FR Heijtel, Aart J Nederveen, Bart NM Van Berckel, Adriaan A Lammertsma & Ronald Boellaard
Quantification of regional cerebral blood flow (CBF) using [15O]H2O positron emission tomography (PET) requires the use of an arterial input function. Arterial sampling, however, is not always possible, for example in ill-conditioned or paediatric patients. Therefore, it is of interest to explore the use of non-invasive methods for the quantification of CBF. For validation of non-invasive methods, test–retest normal and hypercapnia data from 15 healthy volunteers were used. For each subject, the data consisted of...

Predictors of Nursing Facility Entry by Medicaid-Only Older Adults and Persons With Disabilities in California

Michelle Ko, Robert J. Newcomer, Charlene Harrington, Denis Hulett, Taewoon Kang & Andrew B. Bindman
Nearly one-third of adult Medicaid beneficiaries who receive long-term services and supports (LTSS) consist of older adults and persons with disabilities who are not eligible for Medicare. Beneficiaries, advocates, and policymakers have all sought to shift LTSS to home and community settings as an alternative to institutional care. We conducted a retrospective cohort study of Medicaid-only adults in California with new use of LTSS in 2006-2007 (N = 31 849) to identify unique predictors of...

BackgroundFunctional dyspepsia (FD) subtypes may differ in terms of pathophysiology, but the underlying mechanisms remain poorly understood.PurposeTo explore spontaneous brain activity in two main FD subtypes, namely epigastric pain syndrome (EPS) and postprandial distress syndrome (PDS), using the amplitude of low-frequency fluctuation (ALFF).Material and MethodsThirty-one FD patients (18 EPS and 13 PDS) and 22 matched healthy controls (HC) underwent resting-state functional MRI scanning. Spontaneous brain activity was evaluated by measuring the ALFF and then compared...
