Purpose: To evaluate time trends of axial length (AL) in 4 and 5 year-olds children, and to assess factors associated with AL in Shanghai from 2013 to 2019. Methods: This was a 7-year observational study of children of 4 and 5 year-olds in Shanghai. AL, horizontal and vertical corneal curvature, spherical equivalent (SE), body height and weight were measured. Furthermore, a questionnaire was collected including time outdoors and bad habits of using eyes. Results: No...

Data from: Dinoflagellates with relic endosymbiont nuclei as models for elucidating organellogenesis

Nucleomorphs are relic endosymbiont nuclei so far found only in two algal groups, cryptophytes and chlorarachniophytes, which have been studied to model the evolutionary process of integrating an endosymbiont alga into a host-governed plastid (organellogenesis). However, past studies suggested that DNA transfer from the endosymbiont to host nuclei had already ceased in both cryptophytes and chlorarachniophytes, implying that the organellogenesis at the genetic level has been completed in the two systems. Moreover, we have yet...

Association between health literacy and COVID-19 prevention behaviors among pregnant and postpartum women

Daisuke Shigemi, Takahiro Tabuchi, Sumiyo Okawa & Hideo Yasunaga
To investigate the association between health literacy and COVID-19 prevention behaviors among pregnant and postpartum women in Japan. In this cross-sectional, web-based, self-reported questionnaire survey, we investigated the association between health literacy and COVID-19 prevention behaviors among pregnant and postpartum women in Japan. A multivariable logistic regression analysis was performed to evaluate the association with adjustment for socioeconomic characteristics. There were 926 respondents, comprising 368 pregnant and 558 postpartum women. Women with high health literacy...

Data from: The proportion of clinically relevant alarms decreases as patient clinical severity decreases in intensive care units: a pilot study

Objectives: To determine (1) the proportion and number of clinically relevant alarms based on the type of monitoring device; (2) whether patient clinical severity, based on the sequential organ failure assessment (SOFA) score, affects the proportion of clinically relevant alarms and to suggest; (3) methods for reducing clinically irrelevant alarms in an intensive care unit (ICU). Design: A prospective, observational clinical study. Setting: A medical ICU at the University of Tokyo Hospital in Tokyo, Japan....

Intelligent classification of platelet aggregates by agonist type

Yuqi Zhou, Atsushi Yasumoto, Cheng Lei, Chun-Jung Huang, Hirofumi Kobayashi, Yunzhao Wu, Sheng Yan, Chia-Wei Sun, Yutaka Yatomi & Keisuke Goda
Platelets are anucleate cells in blood whose principal function is to stop bleeding by forming aggregates for hemostatic reactions. In addition to their participation in physiological hemostasis, platelet aggregates are also involved in pathological thrombosis and play an important role in inflammation, atherosclerosis, and cancer metastasis. The aggregation of platelets is elicited by various agonists, but these platelet aggregates have long been considered indistinguishable and impossible to classify. Here we present an intelligent method for...
