Item response theory and differential test functioning analysis of the HBSC-Symptom-Checklist across 46 countries

Abstract Background The Symptom Checklist (SCL) developed by the Health Behaviour in School-aged Children (HBSC) study is a non-clinical measure of psychosomatic complaints (e.g., headache and feeling low) that has been used in numerous studies. Several studies have investigated the psychometric characteristics of this scale; however, some psychometric properties remain unclear, among them especially a) dimensionality, b) adequacy of the Graded Response Model (GRM), and c) measurement invariance across countries. Methods Data from 229,906 adolescents...

Altered methylation pattern in EXOC4 is associated with stroke outcome: an epigenome-wide association study

Natalia Cullell, Carolina Soriano-Tárraga, Cristina Gallego-Fábrega, Jara Cárcel-Márquez, Elena Muiño, Laia Llucià-Carol, Miquel Lledós, Manel Esteller, Manuel Castro de Moura, Joan Montaner, Anna Rosell, Pilar Delgado, Joan Martí-Fábregas, Jerzy Krupinski, Jaume Roquer, Jordi Jiménez-Conde & Israel Fernández-Cadenas
Abstract Background and purpose The neurological course after stroke is highly variable and is determined by demographic, clinical and genetic factors. However, other heritable factors such as epigenetic DNA methylation could play a role in neurological changes after stroke. Methods We performed a three-stage epigenome-wide association study to evaluate DNA methylation associated with the difference between the National Institutes of Health Stroke Scale (NIHSS) at baseline and at discharge (ΔNIHSS) in ischaemic stroke patients. DNA...

Estimated projection of oral cavity and oropharyngeal cancer deaths in Spain to 2044

Pedro Infante-Cossio, Antonio-Jose Duran-Romero, Antonio Castaño-Seiquer, Rafael Martinez-De-Fuentes & Jose-Juan Pereyra-Rodriguez
Abstract Background Oral cavity cancer (OCC) and oropharyngeal cancer (OPC) are two common malignancies whose mortality is worryingly increasing worldwide. However, few studies have estimated the mortality trends for these cancers in the coming years. This study analysed the mortality rates for OCC and OPC observed between 1980 and 2019 to generate a predictive model for the next 25 years in Spain. Methods Mid-year population data and death certificates for the period 1980–2019 were obtained...
