Abstract Background We aimed to assess the prevalence of Salmonella Typhi through DNA and IgM-antibody detection methods as a prelude to extended surveillance activities at sites in Ghana, Madagascar, and Ethiopia. Methods We performed species-specific real-time polymerase reaction (RT-PCR) to identify bacterial nucleic acid, and enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) for detecting HlyE/STY1498-, CdtB/STY1886-, pilL/STY4539- and Vi-antigens in blood and biopsy specimens of febrile and non-febrile subjects. We generated antigen-specific ELISA proxy cut-offs by change-point analyses,...

Exploring carer resilience in the context of dementia: a meta-synthesis

Eun Young Kim & Sung Ok Chang
Abstract Aims The aim of this literature review is to integrate the results of qualitative research on the resilience experiences of family carers of people with dementia (PWD). Design A qualitative meta-synthesis study was conducted. Methods The meta-ethnography method of Noblit and Hare (1988) was used. We searched five electronic bibliographic databases (PubMed, EMBASE, CINAHL, PsycINFO and Web of Science) using the keywords “caregivers”, “family caregivers”, “spouse caregivers”, “qualitative research”, “resilience, psychological” and “dementia.” The...

Development of beta-carotene-loaded poly(lactic acid)/hydroxyapatite core-shell nanoparticles for osteoblast differentiation

Sungho Lee, Yoshihiko Sugimoto, Katsuya Kato, Tatsuya Miyajima, Makoto Sakurai & Fukue Nagata
Beta-carotene (BC) is a nutrient in vegetables and a precursor of vitamin A. BC has been reported to have anticarcinogenic, antiaging, and antioxidation properties and prevents heart diseases. Recently, BC has gained significant attention due to stimulating effect on osteoblast differentiation. Poly(lactic acid)/hydroxyapatite (PLA/HAp) core-shell nanoparticles have been reported earlier with a load capacity of 250% for water-insoluble substances, using a surfactant-free emulsification method. In this work, PLA/HAp core-shell nanoparticles loaded with BC were prepared,...

A retrospective review of vaccine wastage and associated risk factors in the Littoral region of Cameroon during 2016–2017

Rene Nkenyi, Gi Deok Pak, Calvin Tonga, Yun Chon, Se Eun Park & Sunjoo Kang
Abstract Background Immunization is an effective preventive health intervention. In Cameroon, the Expanded Program on Immunization (EPI) aims to vaccinate children under 5 years of age for free, but vaccination coverage has consistently remained below the national target. Vaccines are distributed based on the target population size, factoring in wastage norms. However, the vaccine wastage rate (VWR) may differ among various settings. Our study aimed to assess vaccine wastage for different site settings, seasonality, and...

Ways that nursing home nursing staff build resilience: a phenomenographic approach

Sung Ok Chang & Eun Young Kim
Abstract Background Resilience has been studied as an effective concept in nursing that acts as a protective factor which aids in overcoming difficult situations and related mental problems. With the recent increase in demand for nursing homes, nursing home nursing staff are facing a variety of stresses and psychological burdens. Improving resilience has been suggested as one way to deal with the difficulties, such as stress, exhaustion, and burnout, that nursing home nursing staff are...

Gender-specific relationship between thigh muscle and fat mass and brain amyloid-β positivity

Sung Hoon Kang, Kyung Hyun Lee, Yoosoo Chang, Yeong Sim Choe, Jun Pyo Kim, Hyemin Jang, Hee Young Shin, Hee Jin Kim, Seong-Beom Koh, Duk L. Na, Sang Won Seo & Mira Kang
Abstract Background The relationship of specific body composition in the thighs and brain amyloid-beta (Aβ) deposition remained unclear, although there were growing evidence that higher muscle and fat mass in thighs had a protective effect against cardiometabolic syndromes. To determine whether muscle mass and fat mass in the thighs affected amyloid-beta (Aβ) positivity differently in relation to gender, we investigated the association of muscle mass and fat mass with Aβ positivity using positron emission tomography...
