Developing and validating multivariable prediction models for predicting the risk of 7-day neonatal readmission following vaginal and cesarean birth using administrative databases

Sangmin Lee, Dylan E. O’Sullivan, Darren R. Brenner & Amy Metcalfe
Approximately 3.5% of deliveries in Canada result in potentially preventable neonatal readmission, often times due to preventable morbidities. With complexities in hospital discharge planning, health care providers may benefit in identifying infants at risk of readmission for additional monitoring. To develop and validate models for predicting 7-day neonatal readmission following vaginal or cesarean births. All liveborn term singleton infants without congenital anomalies in the province of Alberta who were not admitted to the NICU were...

Long non-coding RNA VCAN-AS1 promotes the malignant behaviors of breast cancer by regulating the miR-106a-5p-mediated STAT3/HIF-1α pathway

Peng Du, Kaifeng Luo, Guoyong Li, Jisheng Zhu, Qi Xiao, Yong Li & Xingjian Zhang
An accumulating number of studies have found that long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) participate in breast cancer (BC) development. LncRNA VCAN-AS1, a novel lncRNA, has been confirmed to regulate the progression of gastric cancer, while its role in BC is elusive. Here, our results illustrate that VCAN-AS1 is overexpressed in BC tissues and cells, while miR-106a-5p was downregulated and negatively correlated with VCAN-AS1. In addition, high VCAN-AS1 expression and low miR-106a-5p expression were closely correlated with...

Free Licenses & Creative Commons: A Powerful Tool for Open Access Publishing in Grey Literature

Petra Pejšová & Marcus Vaska
In today’s increasingly technologically savvy information society, “using remote access and free content to open doors for science students”, a statement made by NANSLO lab director Daniel Branan (http://www.scoop.it/t/ava-openeducation), is yet another example of ongoing efforts to make information more openly and freely available and accessible. Although Branan focused his remarks on the scientific community, this applies to more than one specific subject field. Rather, scientists, teachers, artists, sociologists, programmers, as well as professionals from...

Bioactive polyacetylenes from Bidens pilosa L and their anti-inflammatory activity

Zhi Yan, Zhenshan Chen, Ling Zhang, Xiaoming Wang, Yaowen Zhang & Zhenhua Tian
A new polyacetylenic glucoside together with three known compounds were isolated from the whole herb of Bidens pilosa L. The structure elucidation of these four compounds was employed by combining NMR and HR-MS data as 4-O-β-D-glucopyranosyloxy-1-hydroxy- 6-(E)-tetradecene-8,10,12-triyne (1), 3-O-β-D-glucopyranosyloxy-1-hydroxy-6-(E)-tetradec- ene-8,10,12-triyne (2), 2-O-β-D-glucopyranosyloxy-1-hydroxy-5-(E)-tetradecene-7,9,11-triy- ne (3) and icthyothereol acetate (4). Additionally, bioactivity study showed that these compounds have potential anti-inflammatory activity. This study has certain guiding significance for the development and utilisation of polyacetylene compounds in Bidens...

Genetic and pathogenic variation of Botrytis cinerea, the causal agent of grey mould on Panax ginseng in China

Rong Wang, Kun Liu, Bingwei Chen, Wanlong Ding & Yong Li
Grey mould, caused by Botrytis cinerea, is an increasingly destructive disease of ginseng (Panax ginseng) in China. However, the extent of variation in the morphological characteristics of fungal colonies, genetic background and pathogenicity of different strains of this pathogen remains unknown. In this study, we isolated and identified 102 isolates of B. cinerea from ginseng. Among these, the sclerotial phenotype was dominant, followed by the mycelial and conidial phenotypes, with the proportion of each phenotype...

Abstract Background Malaria in western Kenya is currently characterized by sustained high Plasmodial transmission and infection resurgence, despite positive responses in some areas following intensified malaria control interventions since 2006. This study aimed to evaluate long-term changes in malaria transmission profiles and to assess patterns of asymptomatic malaria infections in school children aged 5–15 years at three sites in western Kenya with heterogeneous malaria transmission and simultaneous malaria control interventions. Methods The study was conducted...

Introduction: Chromophobe renal cell carcinoma (chromophobe RCC) is the third major subcategory of renal tumors after clear cell RCC and papillary RCC, accounting for approximately 5% of all RCC subtypes. Other oncocytic neoplasms seen commonly in surgical pathology practice include the eosinophilic variant of chromophobe RCC, renal oncocytoma, and low-grade oncocytic unclassified RCC. Methods: In our recent next-generation sequencing based study, we nominated a lineage-specific novel biomarker LINC01187 (long intergenic non-protein coding RNA 1187) which...

Abstract Background More people with rare diseases likely receive disease education and emotional and practical support from peer-led support groups than any other way. Most rare-disease support groups are delivered outside of the health care system by untrained leaders. Potential benefits may not be achieved and harms, such as dissemination of inaccurate information, may occur. Our primary objective was to evaluate the effects of a rare-disease support group leader education program, which was developed collaboratively...

Dementia risk prediction in individuals with mild cognitive impairment: a comparison of Cox regression and machine learning models

Meng Wang, Matthew Greenberg, Nils D. Forkert, Thierry Chekouo, Gabriel Afriyie, Zahinoor Ismail, Eric E. Smith & Tolulope T. Sajobi
Abstract Background Cox proportional hazards regression models and machine learning models are widely used for predicting the risk of dementia. Existing comparisons of these models have mostly been based on empirical datasets and have yielded mixed results. This study examines the accuracy of various machine learning and of the Cox regression models for predicting time-to-event outcomes using Monte Carlo simulation in people with mild cognitive impairment (MCI). Methods The predictive accuracy of nine time-to-event regression...
